Nick and Alastair abandon the real world once again for one of their occasional recommendation specials! This time, they return to some beloved franchises during their eighties era, with Spider-Man: Kraven’s Last Hunt and Doctor Who: Earthshock. (Be aware – there are spoilers for the then-shocking endings of these 30+ year old stories. Enter at your own risk.)
But first, a pitstop in the current century, as Nick reads all 193 issues of zombie mega-epic comic series The Walking Dead, while Alastair investigates new Netflix spy show Kleo.
And then Nick takes us back to a better, darker, sadder time, as we get buried alive with Kraven’s Last Hunt (14:36), the classic Spider-Man story by J.M. DeMatteis and Mike Zeck.
Lastly, Alastair improves the lighting (up to a point) with unique Doctor Who serial Earthshock (30:23), as the Cybermen return for revenge, so angry that they’ve pulled off all their cling film.
