It's space, the final frontier as Ben and Mark traverse two less than utopian visions of mankind's future via 'Oxygen' and 'Colony in Space' from a less than utopian present. Is 'Oxygen' just 40 minutes of set-up for one gag? Is Bill the most human and real Doctor Who companion? Is that a chip and pin terminal on the airlock? And then 'Colony in Space' inspires Ben to give a potted history of both Doctor Who quarries and the East India Company.

ALSO: Jimmy Savile, the strangeness of early 00s television and a moment of Zen courtesy of Glen McCoy.
