Thanks to donations from members I've been able to move Planet Mondas to a faster server. But I'm still working on further improvements. Ad Revenue covers the server fees, but not my time, so if you like you can buy me a coffee, which will help fuel me! Thanks in advance! Mat Sadler (matjkd)

I lasted five minutes before the terrible acting saw me off.
If this turns out to be the "future" of missing episode recons, count me out...

Funnily enough I had a similar feeling when watching the Macra animation. The awful animation (and the story) really put me off and I only watched it all the way through because I had to.

I didn’t think the acting was that bad, a bit wooden, but were not talking Pertwee guest star awfulness. No one channeled Cotton.

Loved that, made with all respect to the original, unlike the animations.. I'd happily watch some more of these, but I'll never watch any more animations.

Yes, that was fun. The amateur dramatics and cheap sets seem appropriate... What a huge amount of work they must have put in!

After last week's episode https://somethingwho.podbean.com/e/episode-55-transmission-of-the-unknown/, in which Paul, Tim, Richard and Jac Rayner gushed over the YouTube release of the reborn Mission to the Unknown, we were contacted by the creative force behind the project - Andrew Ireland. Andrew joins Richard this week to discuss the project from its origins, through its realisation and release to possible future plans. It's a fascinating listen, if not quite 17 times as long as the YouTube "Making Of" as Jac requested.

Just watched it. It's... Well, it feels right, looks about right but it's ultimately disappointing. No disrespect to the UCLAN people, but it's Nation's awful script. The dialogue is appallingly bad in places, cringeworthy in several - especially Malpha (although I did enjoy a being from an outer "galaxy" having a Lancashire accent - do many planets have a Lancashire? Lolages!).

Full marks to the team for effort, although do we really have to have Nick Briggs involved in every sodding Dalek project?
