The Weekly Stuff Bonus #1 – Doctor Who: The Aztecs (Story 6, 1964)

It’s time for the first in a series of monthly bonus episode of The Weekly Stuff Podcast with Jonathan Lack & Sean Chapman, episodes where we will be discussing serials from classic Doctor Who history.

Today, we dive into the 6th Doctor Who story ever told, “The Aztecs,” by John Lucarotti. Emblematic of the ‘pure’ historical stories of the First Doctor (William Hartnell) era, devoid of any sci-fi trappings other than the basic conceit of time travel, this is one of the great stories in Doctor Who history, a spotlight on early companion Barbara and a testament to the show’s early penchant for creative, thoughtful storytelling and keen characterization. We give the episode our trademark in-depth look, and invite you to watch along with us as we take a curated journey through Doctor Who history.
