    It's a very fun and inception-y episode with parts both in the 1890s (Traditional Sherlock Holmes stomping grounds) and modern day, following the end of S3 while also veering off fancifully!

    John & Will discuss it fully - what they really liked, what they really did not like (Will has some issues, so much so that he can't finish a sentence), but just generally exalt in the return of Holmes & Watson to our screens. Plus, there's trivia! Please have a listen!

    We then get into a discussion about "Sleep No More", the latest DOCTOR WHO episode from the pen (keyboard?) of Mark Gatiss. This was one of the more experimental (and confusing) episodes of Doctor Who, so we talk about that, how it fits (or doesn't) in S9, what didn't really work for us, and what it might mean for the final 3 episodes.

    We really enjoyed having Shannon on, as it led to some great discussion, and she has a lot to offer. Take a listen and hear for yourself!

    ZYGONS, ZYGONS EVERYWHERE! Mutter's Spiral Podcast is back talking about "The Zygon Invasion", episode 7 of Series 9 of DOCTOR WHO (and, yes, part 1 of 2)! It's a shorter podcast, since it's half of a very plot-heavy story from Peter Harness. We don't talk plot much, as that's left to unravel in part 2, but we do talk about the political parallels between this story and "real life" as well as a lot of elements that did NOT work for me (Will) - I'm full of disdain. John enjoyed the story more, but he was not comfortable with the political messages raining down upon the viewers, either. We're both hoping that part 2 really brings the story home in a successful way, so we decided to wait until next week for a more full discussion of the story.

    It's interesting listening (we hope), but it's not as positive and sunny as our usual podcasts. Of course, there's also TRIVIA!

    MUTTER'S SPIRAL returns to talk about "Under the Lake", the 3rd episode of DOCTOR WHO Series 9! It's a proper scary episode, and we talk about the scares, our love of the Doctor's quippiness, our concern for Clara, and, of course, that CLIFFHANGER and what it all means. Plus, news and trivia!

    Also, we speculate pretty heavily on part 2 of this story at the end of the podcast, so if you don't want to listen to that, you'll be able to tell when it starts (right at the very end).

    Please come listen!
