British Invaders


British Invaders: The podcast all about British Science Fiction Television features a lively two-person exchange about different television series, tele-films and mini-series. These discussions serve as both an introduction and an entertaining conversation, catering to both those who have seen and those who have yet to see these British science fiction and fantasy shows. Each show is presented in two parts, with new episodes appearing every two weeks. British Invaders covers everything from story-lines to production details to spinoff material. Past topics have included Doctor Who, Sapphire and Steel, Red Dwarf, Day of the Triffids, Jekyll, Robin of Sherwood, and many more.

With topics that range from the captivatingly odd to the addictively entertaining, join hosts Eamonn Clarke and Brian Doob as they discuss British science fiction and related genres.
