Here we are again, just in time for christmas.

In this episode Ant and I explore Frostfire & The Suffering two audio adventures featuring companions Vicki and Steven, read by the original actors, Maureen O’Brien and Peter Purves.

Find out which BF story is his favourite, what he thinks of the new dalek design and wether dalek operaters have a harder time than R2D2
