Doctor Who: Strangers in Space

The first (and possibly only genuine) companion death, a whodunit without a "who" (although it does feature two Doctors, one of which doesn't even bother to show up) and an alien world that was only conjured into being just in time to turn up on the telly; it's back to 1982 this week as the Strangers in Space podcast revisits the rudderless season that was Peter Davison's first.
