Episode 37: The Mutants and Gallifrey: Intervention Earth

The Time Lords have coerced, no, that is too strong a word.  I don't believe the Doctor was forced to play delivery boy for his race of people on Gallifrey.  The Mutants by Dave Martin and Bob Baker is a Doctor Who story where strong themes of colonialism, which racism, class-ism, and all the other ism's rears its ugly head to say, "Hello."
The Marshall, who is hell bent on terraforming Earth colony planet Solos, is a character that comes off as quite despicable, but is this a man that is just trying to preserve and extend the life of the human race?

Straight Outta Gallifrey is back in full effect.  In this episode we discuss The Mutants by Bob Baker and Dave Martin.  Colonialism, Metamorphosis, and The Doctor and Jo Grant in this rare (for the 3rd Doctor) off world saga.
In segment two Ashford speaks on the Big Finish audio play Gallifrey: Intervention Earth part 1.
