The X-Cast blog team are going to share their daily predictions about the Episode Tournament fixtures coming up, talking about who they think will win (not crucially who *should* win – that’s up to you!).
BEYOND THE SEA vs DEADALIVE
Tony: “BEYOND THE SEA – easy win. Should be there and about at the final reckoning.”
Carl: “Can’t disagree. Deadalive is good, but you need to be better than good to eliminate BEYOND THE SEA.”
Sarah: “BTS will win it, and while I certainly appreciate the episode from a critical POV it’s never one I go watch just because. I know fans rave about it but it’s just not my cup ‘o tea.”
Paige: “Beyond the Sea will sweep over Deadalive like a tidal wave.”
Baz: “BEYOND THE SEA is the highlight of season one and I think it will win by a good percentage, which is a shame as DEADALIVE is another great season eight mythology episode.”
ROADRUNNERS vs EMILY
Tony: “EMILY – again for the Scully focus, but Roadrunners should go through as its bloody creepy stuff.”
Carl: “Roadrunners is excellent. Emily is not very good at all. You may be right on the vote, but I hope not. ROADRUNNERS by a whisker.”
Paige: “I think EMILY will win, but Roadrunners is downright great.”
Baz: “Four great episodes, though EMILY is probably the weakest. ROADRUNNERS is very creepy and one of my favourites of season eight. I hope it wins because it deserves too, though I can’t call that one.”
