PODCAST: Mummy on the Orient Express

After Robots of Sherwood and Mummy on the Orient Express, we give ourselves over to wonder what other established title could have a fantastical creature or machine added to it to make future Doctor Who titles and cookie-cutter plots? Could it be The Vampire Strikes Back? To Cerberus With Love? The Ghost Busters (basically The Dam Busters, but with ghosts)? Or perhaps Mo Money, Mokèlé-mbèmbé? (That's our pick)

Jamie Mathieson makes his Doctor Who debut with this story that pulls at a spare thread left over from The Big Bang four years ago, and finds an extremely workable concept on the end of it.

Join Joe and Chris as they visit the toilet, click their fingers, reveal Donald's secret hobby, play to their ever-silent live audience and, to their amazement on a day when they were both really tired, stay awake. Personal triumphs all around.
