The UNIT PodKast

The Doctor, Sarah and their UNIT family.

You lucky people! Not content with gushing over Season 7 in last week’s podKast, this time around Christian Cawley and James McLean discuss the wonder that is UNIT, that Dad’s Army-esque band of brothers operating out of an ever-moving HQ, combating alien attacks with or without the help of the Doctor.

From The Web of Fear through to Planet of the Dead, we (mostly) avoid the UNIT dating issues by focusing instead on the personnel – the Brigadier, Captain Yates and Sergeant Benton – and the possibility that the modern incarnation of the organisation could have been done somewhat differently.

And possibly with more success!
