Join us next week for our review of the first four parts Doctor Who story #46, The Invasion!  This eight-part story is missing parts 1 and 4.  Due to its length, we’ll be splitting our coverage of it over the next two episodes of the podcast.  There is a DVD release, but the Region 1 release is out-of-print and disproportionately expensive.  You can rent the DVD from Netflix, or buy the DVD from Amazon.com, big spender.
