Pex Lives: A Doctor Who Podcast (Second Doctor)
James Murphy and Kevin Burns are both Certified Minor Internet Personalities with a shared love of Doctor Who. Explore the history of the show with them, as they watch classic serials and chat with each other each month about them. Each month, the pair will pick a classic serial to watch and then break down, exploring the themes, characters and production of the given story. There will also be jokes. Sometimes they may barely mention the show. New episodes every month.
Kevin & James battle on through the long Troughton serial and then continue to wander through the Bob Dylan discography with Blonde on Blonde & John Wesley Harding.

Kevin and James have a chat, then sink their teeth into the first three episodes of the '69 Troughton serial The War Games. Note: this was recorded just prior to the Omicron variant catching people's notice, immediately making it helplessly dated. Good talk!

The Pex Lives lads have returned after tragically losing an episode. They chat elections (you know, Solihull's by-election, the recent gains made by Plaid Cymru) and lockdowns and the worst (?) serial of Doctor Who, which James picked cos he fancied some Troughton and did no further research.

15: The Ice Warriors, or, Crushed beneath a moving mountain of ice.

The Pex Lives team are here to help you through the end of summer with an appropriately chilly episode. Patrick Troughton's Second Doctor's first meeting with.... the Ice Warriors! As well as more thoughts on the new episodes up to the end of last month. Will it melt their hearts or will the Pex Lives boys be cool on it?

Sorry. Enjoy!

4. The Enemy of the World, or Creag an Tuirc

The Enemy of The World! Thought missing for over forty years, unseen by human eye, is now here for Kevin and James to gush about. This is the Pex Lives podcast running at full power. James Madison, the Zapatistas, and Pussy Galore all get nods. A really great, fun conversation that you should hook yourself right into.

At an exciting time for Doctor Who, keep your eyes peeled for special stuff we have planned around the 50th Anniversary episode.
