Welcome back to Pledge Break, the podcast where two old friends talk about the Doctor Who version of history and the history of Doctor Who! In this episode, we’re revisiting a classic story, the Patrick Troughton sci-fi horror tale The Tomb of the Cybermen. Plus, as a special bonus, we’re taking a look at the 1959 Hammer Films version of The Mummy! AND we start things off with exciting news about two new movies with Jesse in them. And all at one low, low price!
