The last Friday Night Who in April sees us splitting a story in half again, this time with “The Ambassadors of Death”
In this week’s show, after wading through discussions about yard waste and home improvement, we look at the Third Doctor, seven part story, The Ambassadors of Death. This is a story we split between two weeks of Friday Night Who, and was the first one to receive an extensive color restoration.
Also, Shaun and Keith were able to make it out to see Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph this weekend. Hear what they have to say about the film.
And a look at the news happening in the Whoniverse this week, including the announcement of the return of classic adversary.
And of course, your feedback.
