Featuring: David Quantick

David Quantick takes a look back over 50 years of science fiction at its British best with a quick fire look at all things Doctor Who.

He'll be lifting the lid on some industry secrets and exterminating any myths listeners might have heard about the long-running series, such as: why was William Hartnell replaced as the first Doctor? What was it about the Daleks that drove Jon Pertwee mad? And why was the show cancelled for 16 very bleak years?

All this and plenty more, all in true off-the-wall Blagger's style.
