    Kill The Moon, the most divisive of episodes this series so far! Fans either love or hate this Marmite flavoured episode but what about the Who's He? Podcast? Well, they certainly don't sit on the fence and are quite clear on what they thought but after a very long time, Phil lets rip with a rant that will most likely lose this podcast listeners!  But they discuss the things that have divided opinion such as the Moon is a egg, spiders on the luna surface and the biggest question of all, where does this episode leave the Doctor and Clara?

    This week and with some trepidation, the Who's He? Podcast reviewing duo take a look at The Caretaker, episode 6 of series 8 of Doctor Who. But why the trepidation? Well, Phil is not exactly Gareth Roberts biggest fan, so his usually well balanced (ahem) critique is under scrutiny, while Paul is much more reserved and ponders over the plot and wonders whether the alien of the week needed to be there at all? And Phil gets caught off guard by being pleasantly surprised not once but twice!

    And in the news, the sad loss of Maggie Stables, more stats than you can handle, more DVD news and in Omega's Tat Corner it's rare tat time and quite possibly the most expensive and biggest item of tat ever!

    And in a very short news section this week, British Pathe release old Movietone News reels containing very some fairly tenuous links to Doctor Who, the Hugo Award 2014 nominations are revealed in which Doctor Who dominates and as it's a slow news week, the latest news in John Barrowmans attempts at dropping hints that he'd like another series of Torchwood and appear again in Doctor Who.

    And in the news this week, Ben Miller joins the cast of series 8, Day of The Doctor is up for a pointless award which brings back childhood horror for Phil and in a massive edition of Omega's Tat Corner there are all sorts of nick-nacks to tickle your fancy which also gives Phil and Paul a great idea for a TV show.

Was or is it as bad people think?  Is this story as bad as Phil & Paul remember?  Listen to find out whether either of them have softened their opinion of this very divisive story.

    And in the news this week, BBC3 that stalwart of Doctor Who repeats is to close down, another writer for series 8 is announced which probably doesn't get the reaction the BBC was hoping for and in Omega's Tat Corner it's time for some more quality mintage!!

    And in the news this week, casting news for series 8, a cancellation of a Doctor Who tour down under, DVD news and Phil and Paul give their opinion on the missing episodes spat between Ian Levine and himself.  And in a short, sharp trip to Omega's Tat Corner there is future tat!!  Well, maybe.

    It's audio commentary time yet again and this week it's part 2 of our commentary for The Krotons, the fondly remembered fan favourite (I mean the story, not part 1 of this commentary.  That was last week by the way.) that nobody really remembers very fondly.  So this week they continue with episodes 3 and 4 and struggle manfully with walking cheese graters with Brummie accents and a man dressed as a tortoise.  No that wasn't one of Tony's "facts", that it is what they are watching.  So tune in to listen to 3 grown men sitting in silence for long periods of time and only coming alive when something exciting happens or when they get a sniff of beer.

    And there's no news this week as they couldn't be bothered. No not really, not a lot happened to be honest.

    And in the news this week, Doctor Who scoops a few awards, Phil gets disappointed at The Web of Fear DVD, an update on Christmas Log the lonely K9 knockoff and in Omega's Tat Corner the new 12th Doctor action figure is discussed and compared to an obscure 1970's pop star and a night light that is billed as some kind of personal attack button.

    After what seems like an eternity, Phil and Paul return their retrospective of series 3 with a look back at Utopia.  With what is widely regarded as one the best episodes of Doctor Who since it's revival in 2005, does it still excite or has time not been kind to this story of The Masters resurrection?  While Paul is still under the weather and Phil at one point comes over all James Lipton (I just read that back.  Eurgh!), the lads certainly have a lot to talk about!

    And in the news this week, the sad passing of Roger Lloyd-Pack, the end of online role playing game Doctor Who: Worlds in Time, more on set spoiler photos of series 8 and in Omega's Tat Corner it's everything you need for tea.

    For their first podcast of 2014, Phil and Paul decided that it was high time that they did another Target book review.  So what did they pick?  The Twin Dilemma that's what!!  In a vain attempt to discover whether Eric Sawards novelisation improves on what is probably the most least regarded Doctor Who serial, they discover abandonment of the original plot, pointless back stories for characters and things, depression all round and a mystic cat.

    And in the news this week, Gareth Roberts will be on writing duties for series 8 which gives Phil flashbacks to the horror that is Craig Owens, a couple of Australian centric items and a quick peek into Omega's Tat Corner with the latest in t-shirt news!

    This week the chaps bring you the second part of their audio commentary for the Jon Pertwee story The Daemons episodes 3 to 5.  It's business as usual with long periods of silence and bad jokes but also with Sargeant Benton getting a kicking from a 1970's ventriloquist and Tony's facts on Matthew Corbett finally get their payoff.

    And as this was recorded last week they pretend there wasn't any news to talk about but then Phil invades from the future and brings you news on what happened in the week with the early release of the Big Finish 50th Anniversary story Light At The End and what is happening at the BFI!

    After an extremely long period, it's audio commentary time!  This go around, Phil, Paul and a returning Tony tackle The Daemons, episodes 1 & 2 in the first of a two part commentary.  And even after such a long time between commentaries, the three of them have learnt nothing.  It's still shambolic and they barely pay any attention to what they are watching as Tony unleashes his "facts" on Matthew Corbett and his contribution to the set design of The Daemons and thrill as they watch a U.N.I.T member phone a chat line.

    And in a very slapdash news section this week, they cast their eyes over the 50th Anniversary trailer shown on Saturday night, Moffat's teasing over the amount of regenerations, what really happened with that casting rumour on Ben Daniels, some 50th Anniversary cocktails and in Omega's Tat Corner there is one helluva lot of mintage.

    However, all of this pales into insignificance as the big news this week is that 9, count them, 9 episodes of previously missing Doctor Who stories from the Troughton era have been returned to the BBC and were released to the excited public.  So tune in to hear Phil and Paul throw pessimism to the wind and hear them embrace optimism and celebrate this wonderful news.  And also, Neve McIntosh wants to sex up Doctor Who.  Ooer missus!!
