So i guess it's time to get down to it so Evening gentlemen along evening. Anything house so may as well kickoff with mark of the rani by pip and jane baker which was directed by sarah dealings with music by jonathan gibson dates from season twenty two and i have to say the first thought when i started watching this was could these titles anymore. Eighties s the eighty s. Titles of the lot aren't they. Yeah we're not discussed them before. I don't think we've watched anything from this season yet. I remember watching twin dilemma. For the first time when they appear and in common with the strange decision to per brand new doctor the end of the season. Rodman wait are thinking as a teenager. All they've hardly put on a new effect onto the titles. Just one story just to make it look different. Then think that much of that. So at least i'll have to properly when it comes back and generally thought it was a one off and i was stunned that they stuck with it but anyway yes for eight isn't it. Yeah so let me back in time. So this is the second in the ninth of february nineteen eighty five and the national union of mineworkers is in the middle of a strike. So between march nineteen eighty-four march nineteen eighty five for a whole year. The the mine workers were on strike. And this at just the right to zenda of that. So i i mean. I don't know how much that was. In the thinking of of pip and jane baker when they rotated pens where they wrote to in sort of late eighty four where they were already going by them. And the other aspect of my research. Researches is that killing worth is a real place raven swift was indeed stevenson's employer who He was. He wasn't lord ravens worth until i think eighteen twenty one which must put it eighteen. Twenty two ish That all pip and jane.
