Doctor Who Commentary: Castrovalva

Back in 1981, James McLean and Brian Terranova were both 6. Which means that they would have seen Castrovalva aged 5 or 6 (ignoring the fact that Brian is American and didn’t see Castrovalva for several years…).

Join us as we look back on the opening episode of the Fifth Doctor’s era, as Peter Davison makes his first full appearance as Doctor Who.

This is the perfect way to spend a lockdown night in, watching a classic Doctor Who serial with the Kasterborous podcasters.

Listen out for wry observations, TARDIS talk, and thoughts about how the show compares with other episodes in the same run. James McLean and Brian Terranova are your hosts – why not get your DVD or streaming service ready and watch along with them?
