S10E07 The Pyramid at the End of the World (Doctor Who Series 10)

An 'ancient' pyramid appears overnight. Every clock in the world begins counting down to the Earth's destruction. Three opposing armies lie ready to annihilate each other. An alien race stands ready to offer humanity a deal that could save them, but enslave them. It is a terrifying race against time to save the world. Will the Doctor be forced to accept their help?

2.5 The Doctor Who Show (May 28, 2017)

May 28, 2017

Following our April episode where Dave ran proceedings without Rob (to change things up while the weekly S10 review episodes are going out), this time Rob runs the whole shebang without Dave.

Mike Solko (last heard in our rather popular "This is the one: The DW Show Presents: Gallifrey One" special), steps in to co-host from his headquarters in sunny Southern California.

After some Series 10 chat and a listener email from @fishy_wanda that the boys discuss at length, chat turns to Season 27 and in particular the audio interpretations of it from 2011.

If you've heard the Big Finish audios, Thin Ice, Crime of the Century, Animal, and Earth Aid, you will be right at home.

If you've seen the documentary ENDGAME on the classic era Survival DVD, you will be pretty much at home here, too.

If you've read the article '27 Up' in Doctor Who Magazine #255 from August 1997, you'll be able to keep up with proceedings, too.

If you haven't done ANY of these things, you'll still likely enjoy the chat, and learn a few things along the way, but will be quite spoilt on Season 27 and Big Finish's interpretation of it.

Dare ye enter? See you inside... if you dare. Mwahahahahaha.

THIN ICE: Moscow 1967. The Doctor and Ace have arrived behind the Iron Curtain, and the Soviet Union is seeking a new weapon that will give it mastery in the Cold War. What is the secret of the Martian relics? As the legendary War Lord Sezhyr returns to life, the Doctor is faced with some of his oldest and deadliest enemies. The fate of Earth – and the future of Ace – are now intertwined...

CRIME OF THE CENTURY: The year is 1989. In London, safe cracker Raine Creevy breaks into a house – and finds more than the family jewels. In the Middle East, the kingdom of Sayf Udeen is being terrorised by Soviet invaders and alien monsters. And on the Scottish border, a highly guarded facility contains an advanced alien weapon. These are all part of the Doctor's masterplan. But masterplans can go awry...

ANIMAL: Margrave University in 2001, and Raine Creevy is enjoying her first trip into the future. For the Doctor, there are mysteries to solve: what are the alien creatures imprisoned in the science labs? And what are the true motives of the student Scobie and his followers? With enemies on all sides, the Doctor teams up with his old friend Brigadier Bambera and the forces of UNIT in a battle for the future of the whole world.

EARTH AID: Welcome aboard the space vessel Vancouver. Its mission: to guard a vast shipment of grain from Earth to the planet Safenesthome. Its Captain is called Ace. She seems a little unsure of herself. In fact, some might almost think she was new to the job. Its medical officer is called simply ‘The Doctor’, and he’s perhaps not all he seems either. When mysterious ships target the Vancouver, Ace and the Doctor are pushed to the limit. Meanwhile, there’s something nasty in the grain containers. And it’s not very happy...
