Episode 128: The Once and Almost Story


Arthurian legend (without Arthur) meets interdimentional space travel meets U.N.I.T. meets quirky English countryside characters.  It must be a story from the 7th Doctor era.  This week we discuss, review and attempt to stay of the subject of "Battlefield".

Episode 127: Ideal Pairings


We've all done it.  Facebook posts have been dedicated to discusing it.  There have probably even been panels at cons on the subject.  This week we tackle the topic of fantasy TARDIS crew building.  Like chefs in the kitchen, we're taking a pinch of him, a dab of her, putting them together and seeing what comes out.

Episode 126: Turlough's Choice


Spooky music, ships that race in space and creepy ship's officers are the thing this week.  The 5th Doctor, Turlough and Tegan find themselves stuck between an Eternal and a Black Guardian in "Enlightenment", and we find ourselves talking about it.  And a whole lot of other things, too.

Episode 125: Down The Rabbit Hole


This week we make a valient effort to discuss the powers and abilities of Time Lords.  However, we keep getting drawn off topic, tho not off subject.  Yes, we're still talking about Time Lords (sort of), just other stuff regarding them.  Like regeneration and artron energy.

Episode 124: Do I Detect A Red Shirt


Having just seen Katy Manning at Gallifrey One, we decided to review a Jo Grant episode.  Then we noticed that this week is right in the middle of the 42nd anniversary of "The Sea Devils" first airing on TV in the UK.  It seemed a match made in...well, somewhere.  So here you have them: The Master, the third Doctor and the wonderful, amazing, self-relient Josephine Grant!  Oh yeah, and a guy who checks out strange noises in the dark.

WARNING: Contains some rabbit chasing

This is our entry for the last two days of Gallifrey One: 25 Glorious Years.  Sorry it's a bit late, but this year things were so busy time just slipped away.  In fact, after we recorded this, Daisy had to run to help her friends from L.I. Who host a party.  Fun days!

Episode 122: Gearing Up for Gallifrey One


With Gallifrey One, the largest Doctor Who convention in America, only days away, we can't help but talk all about what's going to go on outside of the panels.  The ice cream social, the trock concert, the kaffeeklatsches.  There's so much going on you need a time turner to do it all!  If you're going to Gally, we hope that this weeks show whets your anticipation.  If you're not going, we hope the show piques you interest for next year.

Episode 121: We Are Sherlocked


Episode 121 exists after all!  It just faked it's own death.  Much like Sherlock Holmes did at the end of Series 2.  Appropriate since this show we are reviewing Series 3 of "Sherlock".  With Gallifrey One almost here, we thought we'd take a step away from Doctor Who for a moment to discuss Moffat's other, pet project.

WARNING: Contains MASSIVE Spoilers's

This episode has been lost.


This week was supposed to be Episode 121 and we were going to review Series 3 of Sherlock.  We did record it, however, during editing the computer crashed and most of the audio was lost.  There is not enough left that makes sense.  I guess it's just as well since Daisy was sick and coughed throughout the recording and almost lost her voice by the end. 

Our next episode is our Gallifrey One pre-con show.
