    ttv 1400 anniThe day finally arrived, and the three of us have been on a three day emotional high. But, as we settle down, weary from the journey, we realize that the celebrations go on. The fiftieth anniversary year is not over, it’s only now in full swing.

    That being said, it’s time for us to reveal our opinions of the weekend’s goodness, and share our reviews of An Adventure in Space and Time, The Day of the Doctor, and The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot.

    And of course, all of your glorious impressions and feedback.

    Sit back and relax, it’s going to be a long one.

    ttv 1400 anniIn this week’s show we added a little something extra that wasn’t on the schedule. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you are aware that Steven Moffat and The BBC offered us a little surprise last week, with the release of The Night of the Doctor, featuring the long awaited return of Paul McGann on film as the Eighth Doctor. That could not go unaddressed, so finally our review of the minisode.

    But, business as usual, we go back on schedule and take a look at The Doctor Revisited: The Tenth Doctor, and offer our impressions on the special.

    Then, a look at Ten’s run with a retrospective on the era, revealing our, as well our listener’s picks for the most representative story.

    Plus, a look a the other news of the week.

    And, of course, your feedback.

    Michelle’s note about “Ghost Light” in the preface of Lungbarow” – If you can get a hold of a copy of the book, it lays out the process of the novel including some interesting facts about how the premise was changed and set on Earth for the Ghost Light T.V. story. Sounds like things got watered down in the mix and the idea plays out better in the novel, Lungbarrow.
