Episode 9 - Mervyn Haisman & Henry Lincoln

This month, Erik and Kyle take a look at the ups and downs of the Troughton-Era writing duo of Mervyn Haisman and Henry Lincoln, or "Norman Ashby" as they were once credit due to behind-the-scenes tumultuousness. The Great Intelligence and the Yeti make two Season Five appearances, "The Abominable Snowmen" and "The Web of Fear," one of which, according to the fellas, doesn't quite live up to the hype, and the Quarks make their (mercifully) sole appearance in "The Dominators." Is it as dumb and boring as most of fandom says? You'll have to listen to find out. But, yes it is.
