BONUS EPISODE Review Of The Year 2020
Play • 56 min

At the end of a year when planet Earth turned into a total-immersion version of a post-apocalyptic sci-fi movie, the Robby The Robot’s Waiting team take the only logical course of action – we look back on a year of TV and film. 

While 2020 in cinema was as much about the films we didn’t see as the films we did – would Birds Of Prey be making it into top five lists in any other year? – TV has arguably never been better. 

So, join Robby regulars Dave, Tanavi and Richard – and our special guest, journalist and author Tara Bennett – for a journey through Star Treks, virtual watercoolers, and superheroes. And yes, we do talk about Doctor Who – eventually... 

We also look ahead to what’s (hopefully) going to be exciting us on screens big and small in 2021. 

Happy new year to all our listeners. Thanks for all the downloads in 2020 – there’ll be loads more in 2021!
