Episode 146: Megadeth

Summer's almost over, which is a bit bitter sweet.  We say goodbye to our Summer Concert Series (thank you all for indulging us and having fun with it), but hello to Series 8 and a new Doctor.  This week we have our headline act.  One of the most controversial in the industry, Megadeth!  And I'm sure that Dave Mustaine would love it if he knew we were using his band to bring us around to the topic of all the death that's happened on this simple, British, children's show.  That's right.  50 years of body count.  And it hasn't all been caused by everyone but the Doctor.

But first, we join our dear Uncle Elmer on a wonderful rabbit chase.  Enjoy!

 

"Sweating Bullets" from the Megadeth album Countdown to Extinction, 1992.

Russell T. Davies, bless his heart, gave us the Time War in an attempt to get away from those meddling Time Lords.  What he really gave us was the biggest retcon in all of time and space.  As the summer rolls on, we explore that clash and some of its implications.   Gallif...
