    Here we review "The Doctor's Daughter". This is also the last recording before The Great Illness of The Fall of 2016. We're really grateful for your patience and support in our long absence from your feeds. Daisy was sick for almost 6 weeks with some unknown, non-deadly, annoying, cold/flu like ick and just didn't have the energy to edit and post. Then came the make up work for work, which again, took time away from this show. Life is finally getting back to mostly normal and Daisy is once again able to do her podcasterly job. We thank you for your support.

    It's the third story in the Key To Time series, Stones of Blood, that we're reviewing this time out. It's our favorite of the Key to Time stories and we've been looking forward to picking it apart.

    Before we get to that, tho, the hot weather has our rabbits running for cooler temps in the form of the new fall TV shows here in the US. With nothing newsworthy (in our opinion) going on with Doctor Who, we feel obliged to indulge in a bit of that sort of rabbit chasing.

    Kahler-Tek, known now as "The Gunslinger", kind of looks like a Borg. It got us thinking that perhaps his technology was similar enough to use as a jumping off place for this discussion. And, amazingly enough, for the most part the rabbits seem to have agreed!

    We've got a little bit of news. A spoiler-free review of Star Trek Beyond. Also, for you Sherlock fans, the three words for Series 4.

    This is not the show you expected. Cheryl has called in sick, so Daisy is taking over all by her lonesome. Being that there is no Cheryl to talk to and no real Doctor Who news, this is a review of the newly released movie "Captain America: Civil War". Why? Because Daisy just saw it, so why not. The review is mildly spoilery, but no plot or specifics are revealed. Nothing that gives anything away, at least.
