TOURNAMENT PREDICTIONS: Tithonus vs Herrenvolk / Ghost in the Machine vs The Amazing Maleeni

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!).

December 20th/21st




Tony: “TITHONUS – possibly regarded as one of the better standalone stories, though this could be close again.”

Carl: “TITHONUS. It has a lot of virtues including a great guest performance by Geoffrey Lewis. Might win this match handily.”

Sarah: “TITHONUS is a worthy adversary. HERRENVOLK is one of the weaker mythology episodes. I think TITHONUS will take this one.”

Danielle: “I think TITHONUS – a chilling MOW episode. There’s a lot going on in HERRENVOLK but nothing much happens.”

Andrew: “TITHONUS all the way. HERRENVOLK is boring, the only redeeming aspect being X’s assassination and the introduction of Marita Covarrubias.”

Baz: “I think TITHONUS. It’s got a great concept and the darkener nature of the episode if a nice contrast to the rest of the season six. HERRENVOLK is an okay mythology episode, though better than Talitha Cumi in my opinion.”




Tony: “THE AMAZING MALEENI – just about but I reckon this will be closer than you might think, as more people will have seen GITM.”

Sarah: “I think GITM probably more recognizable but THE AMAZING MALEENI is a superior episode so I think it will surprise us and take the win.”

Carl: “Both flawed. I think the voters will probably reward the low-key charm of THE AMAZING MALEENI.”
