    It's time for more "MUTTERS Classic" - yes, a repeat from our archives - today, following on last week's podcast on "Blink", we look at "The Time of Angels" - part 1 of the 2 part Weeping Angel story from Series 5 - this is the 4th 11th Doctor episode as well as the 4th MUTTER'S SPIRAL episode - May 10, 2010 - so it's from the early days! I'm sure there's lots of discussion, gushing and trivia! We again did a quick intro - not much news this week, but just a little hello. If you're so inclined, take a listen! Enjoy!



  • MUTTER'S SPIRAL 84 - "Blink"

    MUTTER'S SPIRAL Podcast wishes you all a happy 2015!  We're celebrating by... going back to 1/27/11 - when we recorded this podcast for "Blink", the classic Doctor Who episode from 2007, written by Steven Moffat and starring David Tennant, Freema Agyeman and Carey Mulligan!  We thought this would be a fun podcast to bring back, since it's no longer up anywhere - of course, "Blink" is one of the all-time greatest episodes of Doctor Who!  

    As bonuses for this podcast, you get a lot of great stories about our trip to London in 2006 to meet the writers (Cornell, Moffat, Dicks, Shearman, Greenhorn, MacRae, and even Gary Russell!)  There's a great story that John will recount that has to do with the FIRST edition of this episode's script from that night!

    2nd bonus: we're in the same room for the first time ever!  So, that's something! 

    The NEW content is 10 minutes of news about Series 9, RTD, Gally/Barrowman.  Then, into the original podcast!  Please have a listen!

    MUTTER'S SPIRAL Podcast continues with its Series 8 review - and this time, we've got Kim & Sage from Headoverfeels.com to help us! They joined us to talk about "Deep Breath", so it made sense to us to have them back post-season. They add their customary wit, charm and passion for Doctor Who to the pod, and the most fun type of chaos ensues! We talk about their favorite moments and episodes (and LEAST favorites) as well as the big arcs for the Doctor & Clara in Series 8. There's also an excellent Paul McGann impersonation from Kim, as she relates tales of interviewing and meeting him at LI Who. Sage & Kim bring a lot of insight in their recap on HOF, and we're lucky to have them back to talk more WHO! AND, it was recorded on Doctor Who Birthday #51, so that's an extra bonus! Please join us for a boisterous and fun Doctor Who discussion!

    MUTTER'S SPIRAL Podcast returns with the first in a series of 50th Anniversary special episodes - we each pick a favorite episode from each of the 20th and 21st century Who and also an episode that we feel is underrated or underappreciated.  We also add in some Big Finish and Novel recommendations.

    Firstly, though, we fire up the Speculatron to discuss the casting of Keeley Hawes in Doctor Who Series 8 and what that could mean, once we mix in some intriguingly Masterful comments from Sylvester McCoy over the weekend.

    Plus, of course, TRIVIA!

    Eps discussed: Caves of Androzani; Battlefield; Ribos Operation; Masque of Mandragora; Girl in the Fireplace; Father's Day; Fires of Pompeii; Midnight.

    *sniff* - It's the end of an era, as Matt Smith and the 11th Doctor depart in "The Time of the Doctor".  John & Will talk about this bittersweet Christmas episode - what worked well, what worked less so, etc.  What kind of answers did we get to the open questions of the 11th's era?  How much will we miss Matt Smith (so much that we'll be doing more episodes on him in the future)?

    We started this podcast with Matt's first full episode, and now his time is over.  But we'll ALWAYS remember the time when the Doctor was MATT SMITH.  He's OUR DOCTOR.

    Also, in honor of Matt (& Peter Capaldi), we have 11 rounds of trivia... plus one for Regeneration's Sake!  Won't you listen?  Thanks!
