Richard arrives in the Something Who bunker and unfortunately breaks the fourth wall at the time of year you really struggle to get a builder.

This is our Christmas special, comparing the first Doctor Who Christmas episode of all - 1965's The Feast of Steven, Episode 7 of the epic Daleks' Master Plan - with the Christmas Invasion, the the first Christmas special of the modern era from 2005. With excursions into Terry Nation's comedy, Hancock and variety shows.

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. Got to and for more. Episode 4 is all about Christmas and you can hear a trailer in the middle of this episode.

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.
