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.

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.
