    Once, long ago, we did a short review (along with two other stories) of Closing Time.  With James Cordon staring in a new film and getting set to become the host of The Late Late Show (replacing Craig Ferguson) we felt it was a good time to revisit the penultiment story of Series 6 and do a proper review.

    Christmas is almost here, and with it the Christmas Special. This time around we're anticipating the special by speculating about it. We know it's not our usual MO, but we're just so excited that we can't stop thinking about it. We promise nothing said beyond what the BBC has officially put out and what our imaginations can dream up.

    If you really don't want to know ANYTHING about what's coming, and have even been avoiding the trailers, our speculation segment starts at time stamp 00:41:13 and ends at 1:23:58. Just skip over that segment and you'll be OK. Go back after Christmas and see what all we got wrong.

    Summer's almost over, which is a bit bitter sweet. We say goodbye to our Summer Concert Series (thank you all for indulging us and having fun with it), but hello to Series 8 and a new Doctor. This week we have our headline act. One of the most controversial in the industry, Megadeth! And I'm sure that Dave Mustaine would love it if he knew we were using his band to bring us around to the topic of all the death that's happened on this simple, British, children's show. That's right. 50 years of body count. And it hasn't all been caused by everyone but the Doctor.

    But first, we join our dear Uncle Elmer on a wonderful rabbit chase. Enjoy!

    "Sweating Bullets" from the Megadeth album Countdown to Extinction, 1992.
