Join us next week for our review of Doctor Who serial #28, The Smugglers AND William Hartnell’s swan song, serial #29, The Tenth Planet, reviewed together in one extra-long episode to make sure we finish them up before Peter Capaldi’s premiere, Deep Breath, on August 23rd! Although The Smugglers is completely lost, we invite you to follow along by listening to the soundtrack before the podcast. You can acquire a copy from audible.com. The first three episodes of the four-parter The Tenth Planet are intact, and the fourth has been animated. You can buy the DVD from Amazon.com, the BBC Doctor Who Shop, or many other fine retailers.
