    Back in March, we were proud to participate in the Who Against Guns movement. We helped other Doctor Who podcasters raise over $20,000 to support gun control. In the course of that effort, several donors won rewards from the participating podcasts. Our winner, Dr. Thomas Rodebaugh, asked us to talk about one of his favorite DW stories, "Warriors' Gate".

    This mini-arc may have curved all the way off the rails, but we don't care. Ace is the embodiment of this very idea, and "The Greatest Show in the Galaxy" gives us plenty to talk about. Including, of course, a significant tangent about the history of clowns in popular media. Because why not?

    Mini-arc #3, companions collecting women companions, starts with the realization that new-Who doesn't have many great examples of this. Join Deb, Liz, and Lynne as they discuss why that might be and how it works (or doesn't) in the case of "Mummy on the Orient Express". Poor Erika, who is absent, takes some serious guff.

    What do you think about companions' companions in the modern era? Are they sparse because of lack of screen time? Is it simply a different type of storytelling? Or something else? Let us know in the comments!

    It's time to slow down and get a bit reflective. Inspired by Peter Capaldi's "farewell tour" at New York Comic Con, Deb, Lynne, and Tansy take a thoughtful look back at Peter Capaldi's tenure. We discuss the impact he's had on the show, his legacy and examine his character arc as the 12th Doctor. Sure, we know he has one more story before the serious postmortem's begin, but we'd rather do this while we can still smile!

    What do you think Peter has brought to the role and, more importantly, what do you think his imprint will be on the show? Leave us a comment and let us know what you think!
