Tread Perilously Podcast — Doctor Who: Love & Monsters

Tread Perilously makes it way to another David Tennant era Doctor Who story. Unfortunately, it’s “Love & Monsters,” the Doctor-Lite episode from 2006.

When a group of people who have all had run-ins with the Doctor form a group to find him, they quickly get distracted as they all become friends. But their small band, LINDA, attracts the attention of a Mr. Kennedy. He refocuses them on locating the Time Lord and one of their group manages to befriend Jackie Tyler. Then it goes a bit pear-shaped with the appearance of the Abzorbaloff.

Erik and Justin get lost trying to describe the episode and end up discussing Neil Gaiman, Stephen King and a number of other topics, but manage to discuss the episode’s odd structure, curious change in tone and the origin of the Abzorbaloff. Though Erik completely fails to describe Blue Peter correctly. He also shares his memories of Manchester pizza and the great Chinese restaurant that opened near his place in 2004.
