Ben and Mark are joined by friend, regular contributor and host of 'I Hate Doctor Who' - Richie Morgan, as they discuss to Egyptian themed stories - 'Mummy on the Orient Express' and 'Pyramids of Mars'.

The conversation takes in ageing, death, and health....and that's just in the introductory preamble!

Under discussion: Balancing sterile science with atmospheric period detail, the magic of Tom Baker and Lis Sladen, the enduring horror of the Mummy, the real-world horror fun you can have with 'Mummy on the Orient Express' and how one scene in 1975 sets the rules for the show going forward. Meanwhile, Ben takes the pulse of youthful music.

Also: Jagger Facts! A controversial round of Degsey's Where Did it Come? Game! The nephew of Sutekh!
