In their 50th episode, Ben and Mark address their changing opinions on the Peter Davison serial Earthshock, which has been paired up with Matt Smith Weeping Angels two parter, The Time of Angels/Flesh and Stone.

Under discussion: Alien/Aliens, the difference between characters you care about and cannon fodder, Beryl Reid: Space Pirate.

Ben relates the story of how his enjoyment of the climactic moments of Time of Angels was ruined (and not in the way you're thinking), whilst Mark has resorted to exhaling in despair at the mere mention of Eric Saward's name.
