This is the second half of our Something Who comparison of Pyramids of Mars and Mummy on the Orient Express. This second part starts with a bit of Pyramids, but moves fairly quickly onto Mummy.

Richard's other podcast is called "If It's Hurting, It's not Working" and it's a fun and informative look at work - why we work, how we work, and what makes a great job. And also what makes a great workplace, how to turn things round when we're not enjoying our work and, in the end, how we can all make our work better. https://ifhurtnotwork.podbean.com/

The opening music is Three Guitars Mood 2 and, yes, that is Richard playing the ukulele and kazoo on possibly the worst ever version of the Doctor Who theme tune at the end.

Here's a clip of a new podcast I'm launching with my colleague Emily called "If It's Hurting, It's not Working", all about work - why we work, how we work, and what makes a great job. And also what makes a great workplace, how to turn things round when we're not enjoying our work and, in the end, how we can all make our work better.

In this episode we introduce ourselves, Emily reveals her enthusiasm for Kylie Minogue, we talk about how success is often a mixture of determination and luck, Richard describes "fishing" in a nuclear reactor pressure vessel and we discover that Emily's primary school teacher wasn't very nice to her.

Richard, Paul, Giles and Gav are hijacked from the Something Who bunker in "1980" and forced to record by Sutekh to record an episode about Pyramids of Mars.

This is the first half of a typical Something Who comparison between two stories - Pyramids of Mars and Mummy on the Orient Express. This half focuses almost exclusively on Pyramids, but stick around, the second half will be along soon. Boring tech problems have caused a delay.

Richard's "poem" is a little grandiose, so Giles and Paul help him to add a touch of realism. Then it's time to discuss werewolf tales with Seventh Doctor story The Greatest Show in the Galaxy and 10th Doctor adventure Tooth and Claw.

And whatever the title may suggest, we actually enjoyed them both a great deal.

Gav's still trying to come to terms with his huge rant over The Gunfighters last episode. So we head for the pastoral calm of English public schools in Fifth Doctor story Mawdryn Undead and 10th Doctor adventure Human Nature / The Family of Blood.

Along the way some of us expose our ignorance of the original Virgin novel Human Nature, the Boer War and the film If...

Richard, Paul, Giles and Tim give the Ballad of the Last Chance Saloon their best shot, before looking at another pair of historical stories - 1st Doctor story The Gunfighters and 11th Doctor outing A Town Called Mercy, both set in the American West.

Then we're interrupted by a rather familiar voice who's getting rather exercised by the lack of historical authenticity.

I wanted to focus on how Chris uses his films to tell stories and to discuss the planning and editing processes as much as the actual filming, though naturally some of those stories come through too. We focus in this episode on Chris's new films for the Season 14 and Season 8 sets.

I think you'll be blown away by Chris's natural enthusiasm for his work, as well as his passion for the subjects of his films.

Don't worry that this is episode 43 and the last one was 41. It's all gone a little bit wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey on us, but 42 will be along soon and it'll be worth waiting for.

Chris's work is all over the Doctor Who DVD and Blu-Ray ranges, and while the limited editions of the Blu-Rays can be hard to get hold of, they are slowly being re-issued and well worth the price of admission.

And if you can't get enough of Chris's work, you can also head over to https://www.bigfinish.com/, where he has written a number of audio plays.

The opening music is Three Guitars Mood 2 (off of An Unearthly Child) and, yes, that is Richard playing the ukulele and kazoo on possibly the worst ever version of the Doctor Who theme tune at the end

Relaxing in a Roman villa, Richard, Paul, Giles and Gav chew over the latest reviews for Something Who, both good and bad. After which it's the pairing you voted for on Twitter - 1st Doctor story The Romans and 10th Doctor outing The Fires of Pompeii, both with a 1st century Italian setting.

For some reason we can't help mentioning Crackerjack, Indiana Jones and The Tomorrow People along the way.

Richard invites Gav, Giles and Paul to meeting of podcast geniuses (and him). Then it's off for a look at 6th Doctor story The Mark of the Rani and 11th Doctor escapade The Crimson Horror, both revelling in a 19th Century setting.

Along the way we tell tales of our various calamitous meetings with one of the inspirations of the latter tale, Dr Matthew Sweet.

Gav surprises us all with his return to the Something Who bunker, perhaps drawn by the siren call of wine and science. Along with Paul, Giles and Richard he discusses two Doctor Who stories with a connection to 1969: Third Doctor story The Ambassadors of Death, which was written in that year, and Eleventh Doctor outing The Impossible Astronaut / Day of the Moon, which is set in 1969, both with strong links to the space programmes of that era.

We try to stay on topic, but inevitably we stray into programmes of the same era and we give Amy's Crack a particularly thorough examination. Oddly, despite the fact that everybody had a go writing Ambassadors, it's Moffat's episodes that seem to have the most loose threads.
