    18 June 2021 (1:40pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 16 minutes and 22 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    We're back after a slight delay! This time around Taylor is joined by Michael Nixon (of The Game of Rassilon fame) to discuss Christopher Eccleston's return to the role of the Ninth Doctor (this time in audio form for Big Finish)! Despite being quite happy to have new 9th Doctor adventures, we're both left wanting a little bit more from what Ravagers offers. As always, we discuss what worked, what didn't, and where we've heard something like that gruff guard's voice before!



  • Episode 226: The End of the World OR Maximum Hospitality Zone

    2 June 2021 (2:27pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 59 minutes and 9 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    The Doctor, eager to impress his new friend, launches them not 100, not 10,000, but 5-ish billion years into the future! Because nothing impresses a shop girl more than seeing her home planet blasted to pieces by the expansion of the sun as it approaches its next phase of life. But not all is hunky dory as glorified skin pancake, Cassandra, is plotting some shenanigans of her own as a way to maybe sort of extort money out of the delegations present. Can The Doctor save the day, save Rose, and flip the script on Cassandra all while spending the whole season’s CGI budget? Welcome to The End of the World!



  • Episode 225: Cold War OR Professor Grisenko's Mixtape

    18 May 2021 (2:04pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 51 minutes and 7 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Cold War is a tight, well-directed base-under-siege story in which the base is a claustrophobic submarine trapped 700m underwater and they're under siege from the inside by an Ice Warrior! Grand Marshall Skaldak has just awoken from a 5000 year slumber and no one's offered him any coffee yet. Can The Doctor and Clara head off both an international and intergalactic incident?! Join us as we review Cold War!



  • Episode 224: The Doctor's Daughter OR The Search for the Secret Sauce

    11 May 2021 (1:42pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 57 minutes and 44 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    13 years ago, the Doctor welcomed a daughter into his life. She was a...full-grown adult woman who could speak, handle a rifle, and was a clone of his hand (while there was already an extra hand of his floating around in the TARDIS!). Not your typical birth, to say the least! This time around, we review The Doctor's Daughter! It's a fun story with great looking creatures, well-crafted arcs, and some memorable moments! We also look at the first block of guests for the next Gallifrey One, so join us!



  • Episode 223: Nightmare in Silver OR Delights, Delicacies, and Death

    28 April 2021 (1:43pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 53 minutes and 1 second

    Direct Podcast Download

    A quarter million years in the future (not that we're explicitly told that), The Doctor, Clara, and her two wards (remember Clara's nanny phase?) land on a theme park planet that's certainly seen better days! Things quickly go south as Cybermites kickstart the long-dead Cybermen on display and a high-paced, high-stakes story ensues! We discuss Nightmare in Silver...did this 2013 episode improve with age? What did we think of these more Borg-like Cybermen? And has the psychic paper become as much of a story-telling crutch as the sonic sometimes is? Join us as we talk about all that and more!



  • Episode 222: The Ambassadors of Death or The Worldwide Hookup

    13 April 2021 (1:52pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 10 minutes and 56 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    It's a classic tale of xenophobic astronaut turned general using alien ambassadors to kill, steal, and do his dirty work! Sound like a lot to take in? It is! Because we're reviewing the 7-part 3rd Doctor serial The Ambassadors of Death as we round out all the Doctor Who stories that end in "of Death!" While there's lots to follow in the story, there's also lots of action, lots of shooting, and even a bit of humor. So steer clear of the static touch, strap in, and let's get into The Ambassadors of Death!



  • Episode 221: The Robots of Death OR The Bicycle Reflectors of Doom

    30 March 2021 (1:55pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 5 minutes and 44 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    The Doctor and Leela, having just faced down a crazy zealot with a glove for a helmet, land in a mine. Well, on a mine. Well, on a mining ship...er, mining tank? Anyway, they’re on this giant mining vessel (yes, vessel sounds good) crewed by a small team of humans (who, if we’re being honest, have some of the most wild outfits!) and a much larger team of robots. However, under the surface (it’s a mine gag...the gag is also mine), foul play is afoot as humans start dying off left and right. But who is behind these, ahem, Bad Robots? Can the Doctor and Leela save the day before everyone is marked by the bicycle reflectors of doom?



  • Episode 220: The Seeds of Death OR Kilts in Space

    16 March 2021 (2:06pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 57 minutes and 9 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    On Podcastica, we're quickly realizing that the Second Doctor's era contains some of the most ambitious storytelling in all of Doctor Who's history! The Seeds of Death is no exception and we find very little fat that could be trimmed from its six-episode length. The Ice Warriors are back and have a devious plan to make the Earth habitable for these Martians! We find some great adventure, hilarious computer voices, and absolutely excellent directing!! Join us for the #TroughtonRun through The Seeds of Death!



  • Episode 219: Horror of Fang Rock OR Something Nasty in the Coal Hole

    2 March 2021 (2:51pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 7 minutes and 23 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    No, you haven't tumbled into the movie The Lighthouse. It's Horror of Fang Rock! This 4th Doctor adventure is full of excellent Leela moments, a team of lighthouse keepers, a mysterious meteor crashing into the ocean, a creepy fog, a crashed boat of snooty types, one excellent slap, and only two characters make it to the end of the story! Horror of Fang Rock is essentially a British murder mystery masquerading as Doctor Who. Join us as we punt the Rutan back down the stairs over and over again!



  • Episode 218: The Maltese Penguin OR Hard-Boiled Exposition

    16 February 2021 (2:58pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 52 minutes and 11 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    After far too many episodes, we review a Big Finish story (and we have plans for more in the near future)! Between a hard-boiled detective and a multi-colored Doctor, we find The Maltese Penguin! Originally a bonus story, this adventure is a fantastic blend of parody, homage, and crazy Doctor Who logic! If you've never heard this one, be sure to check the show notes for a link to purchase the story.



  • Episode 217: Warriors of the Deep OR Missle Run Green Alert

    2 February 2021 (2:54pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 2 minutes and 52 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    This time John and Taylor sit down to review the season opener for Season 21! Warriors of the Deep is a classic undersea base under siege tale with two of the slowest-walking, oddly talking monsters in Whovian history! And they're taking advantage of a future Cold War to take back control of Earth! Can the Doctor, Tegan, and Turlough stop them? Will they fall prey to a panto sea monster?! Will they just end up the only ones standing, surrounded by the dead? Yeah, it's a little dark in Warriors of the Deep!



  • Episode 216: Terror of the Autons OR Radio Tower Nonsense

    19 January 2021 (2:50pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 6 minutes and 31 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    50 years ago this month, Season 8 of Classic Who marked the introduction of some absolutely legendary characters. Both The Master and Jo Grant made their debut in Terror of the Autons! To celebrate this anniversary, we sat down to watch and discuss this absolutely fantastic story! From moment one, The Master is on point! Jo is a breath of fresh energy! And with everything from circuses to quarries, crazy stunts, and lots of CSO...Terror of the Autons is a fantastic watch!



  • Episode 215: Revolution of the Daleks or No Dalek Necks

    5 January 2021 (1:53pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 17 minutes and 42 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    You say you want a revolution. Well, you know...THAT IT SHOULD NEVER INVOLVE DALEKS! Really, Daleks in your revolution is bad. But this week we sit down to discuss the New Year's Special Revolution of the Daleks! It's a mostly entertaining story with the return of some welcome faces, one face we'd really like to see punched, and two faces who leave at the end (but live!). For all we liked about this adventure, there were a few troubling aspects that left things feeling a little lopsided going into Season 13.



  • Episode 214: Dreamland OR From the High Desert and the Great American Southwest

    29 December 2020 (2:52pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 5 minutes and 18 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Our final episode of 2020! Thank you so much for joining us this year! It's been a rough ride, but there's light at the end of the tunnel. We hope you're having a great holiday and are staying safe. So join us now as we venture into Dreamland! A companion-less Doctor arrives in a remote part of Nevada in 1958 and quickly finds himself facing down the Men in Black, the US government, and a race of cockroach-esque aliens as he finds himself within the confines of the infamous Area 51! There he ends up helping a pair of classic gray aliens...who happen to be married, because sure...grays are down to marry. There aren’t any classic saucers, but there’s much to be found in Dreamland!



  • Episode 213: Fury From the Deep OR A Potent Strain of Weed

    15 December 2020 (3:09pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 5 minutes and 1 second

    Direct Podcast Download

    The Doctor, Jamie, and Victoria land...well, in the ocean. That’s new. But they’re on the property of a large gas extraction factory. And something isn’t quite right. There’s weed growing everywhere...and not the good kind! This weed is potent! And sentient! And it means not just to win Wimbledon, but take over the world! Can our TARDIS team tackle this tickly weed before it’s too late?! Or will they succumb to the Fury from the Deep? Also, this is our last episode before Christmas...so we hope you all have a very Merry (and safe) Christmas!!



  • Episode 212: Revenge of the Cybermen OR The Curse of the Cave Witch

    1 December 2020 (2:00pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 14 minutes and 30 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    This time we round out the rest of Season 12 with Revenge of the Cybermen, a story that sadly faced some scripting struggles along the way. Far more fascinating than that, however, is the apparent curse that followed the cast and crew around during filming! Come for the adventure, stay for the creepy stories that come with it (along with an insane amount of Who News) as we review Revenge of the Cybermen!



  • Episode 211: The Ark in Space OR Emotional Manipulations in the Dark

    17 November 2020 (3:00pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 14 minutes and 8 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    The Doctor, Sarah Jane, and Harry on their first adventure together end up deep in humanity’s future, long after the planet’s been scorched by solar flares. But before they can wake up and get down to the business of repopulating the planet, it becomes clear that something from somewhere is trying to throw a wrench into that process?! Is it the Kerblam man? Sadly, no, but bubble wrap does figure prominently into wrapping things up on The Ark in Space!



  • Episode 210: Frontios OR The Hat Rack at the End of the Universe

    3 November 2020 (2:52pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 7 minutes and 28 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    It's Election Day 2020. Please go vote! Seriously, stop the podcast if you need to and go vote! All done? Good! This time, John & Taylor sit down to discuss the 5th Doctor story FRONTIOS! It's a classic tale of a far-flung human outpost besieged by giant crawdads who can control gravity and are planning to use the planet to start an intergalactic Uber! Can The Doctor, Tegan, and a fairly catatonic Turlough help save the day? You'll have to listen to find out!

    20 October 2020 (1:00pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 21 minutes and 57 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    After what feels like another very long two weeks, John & Taylor are back to discuss the animated recreation of THE FACELESS ONES! This 2nd Doctor story has been 66% missing for quite some time, so does the animated version do the story justice? It's also the departure story for Ben & Polly, so they discuss how well this story serves them. There's lots to get into, so hop aboard, set your tray tables to the upright position, and let's take off!



  • Episode 208: The Sontaran Experiment OR Blowin' Up Epcot

    6 October 2020 (1:49pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 57 minutes and 30 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    The past two weeks have felt like a long six months (thanks, 2020), but John and Taylor are back (so is John's mixer) with their review of The Sontaran Experiment! It's a quick two-parter that highlights the budgets of the 70s, but has some fun dialogue and some pretty decent action sequences! Plus, you may just hear Taylor's two new kittens playing in the background! So join us for some deflated potato casserole!



  • Episode 207: The Masque of Mandragora OR IO Demnos! We Invoke Thee!

    23 September 2020 (1:56pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 59 minutes and 12 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    It's been a weird week, friends. Taylor had a birthday and a massive synchronicity with this week's story! John's been swamped with work and had his mixer die on him (think 5th Doctor console explosions)! Despite all that, we review THE MASQUE OF MANDRAGORA! The Doctor and Sarah Jane accidentally take an ancient entity to 15th century Italy where it quickly gets involved with an underground cult that worships Demnos. Will the Mandragora Helix use its Palpatine-like energy to halt the progress of humanity, keeping it trapped in the Dark Ages? Or will the Doctor and his super rad lion mask ultimately save the day?!



  • Episode 206: Partners in Crime OR Two Sonics Scream As One

    15 September 2020 (1:04pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 8 minutes and 51 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    This week we watched PARTNERS IN CRIME! But first, a word from our "sponsor"...Now you too can manage your weight loss with Adipose. Adipose is a daily pill with a synthesized mobilizing lipase that breaks up the triglycerides stored in your fat cells. The fat just gets up and walks away. No, really, the fat literally walks away. Often in the middle of the night. Possibly setting off your home alarm. Adipose will revolutionize humanity. Do not take Adipose if you’re allergic to its ingredients, are already thin, or may become pregnant. If you experience extreme side effects like seeing cute little babies made of fat or having parts of you that are not fat converted into cute little fat babies, stop taking Adipose right away and seek the advice of a Doctor.



  • Episode 205: Let's Kill Hitler OR Rory Punching Nazis Forever

    8 September 2020 (12:58pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 57 minutes and 24 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    The boys of Podcastica have a bit of a rough week. But they soldiered on and reviewed the 11th Doctor adventure LET'S KILL HITLER! How much did they miss this era of Doctor Who and how exactly is Moffat's writing seen nearly 10 years later? There's lots to talk about...plus some Nazis get punched while others get covered in regeneration energy! It's a wild ride. And we also take a moment to say goodbye to our unofficial 3rd host.



  • Episode 204: The Creature from the Pit OR The Rantings of a Demented Space Tramp

    1 September 2020 (1:04pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 0 minutes and 1 second

    Direct Podcast Download

    Well, we're not quite in the pits over THE CREATURE FROM THE PIT. There were a few things we enjoyed about this 4th Doctor story, but overall the adventure fell a little flat with us, especially being the story that comes on the heels of the amazing City of Death. But, as always, we persevere and find the good within the not so good and let those bits shine for everyone. Join us as we open trade negotiations with THE CREATURE FROM THE PIT!



  • Episode 203: The Claws of Axos OR The Great Space Sphincter

    25 August 2020 (2:26pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 14 minutes and 55 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    We're back in bonkers territory this week with possibly the most 70s episode we've ever reviewed! THE CLAWS OF AXOS starts as a typical aliens-land-on-earth-to-recharge-their-batteries story and quickly evolves into an attempt by The Master to get his TARDIS back by serving up the planet to a race of golden-haired shapeshifters bent on consuming the Earth. Some of the most LSD-inspired psychedelic craziness is infused throughout and we find our proto-Duggan in the form of dangerous American Bill Filer! It's a wild ride from start to finish, so join us for The Claws of Axos!!



  • Episode 202: The War Games (Ep 7-10) OR I Told You! My Guns Best!

    18 August 2020 (2:12pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 10 minutes and 30 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    THE WAR GAMES comes to an end! This week we reviewed the final four episodes of The War Games and the action ramps back up (and gets pretty crazy toward the end) as the War Lord arrives to find infighting between the Security Chief and the War Chief. The Doctor, his crew, and the resistance add to the mix! But, when all is said and done, The Doctor's only choice is to call in the Time Lords and Whovian lore will never be the same!



  • Episode 201: The War Games (Ep 4-6) OR SIDRAT Stopping All Stations

    11 August 2020 (1:57pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 7 minutes and 12 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    The War Games marches onward! This week we review Episodes 4 through 6 of this epic final Patrick Troughton story! Does the pace of the first three episodes continue? Well, give a listen to get our thoughts. But we also have some amazing new from Big Finish to share that we're almost more excited about than The War Games. Join us for a romp through Central Command...be sure to grab your Devo-esque visors, too!

    Friends, listeners, we have reason to celebrate! Podcastica has reached episode 200!! And what better way to honor this blockbuster number than by reviewing an absolute blockbuster of a story! We're spending this episode and the next two reviewing THE WAR GAMES! The final Patrick Troughton story is a sprawling, ambitious story with great pacing and scope. And it does a great service in pushing the Doctor's mythology forward into the next regeneration. Join us as we dive into a fox hole and start discussing THE WAR GAMES!!



  • Episode 199: The Daleks (Ep 5-7) OR One Star, No Goblins

    28 July 2020 (1:59pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 59 minutes and 59 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    We are on the cusp of Episode 200! But first, we finish reviewing the debut of THE DALEKS! In episodes 5-7, The Daleks have the Fluid Link and the Doctor and crew must convince the Thals to fight back, jump across caverns, and deal with the Daleks counting down very slowly in order to save themselves and prevent Skaro from becoming a completely uninhabitable wasteland. Can the bipeds sabotage enough static electricity and throw enough rocks to save the day? Only time...lots of time spent traversing scenery...will tell! Yes, we definitely take a deep look at the scene that set the standard for discussions of poor pacing. Join us!!



  • Episode 198: The Daleks (Ep 1-4) OR Please Scream Inside Your Hearts

    14 July 2020 (2:01pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 57 minutes and 39 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    The Doctor, Susan, Ian, and Barbara (fresh off their very first adventure together) land on a mysteriously deserted world, but the temptation of exploring a nearby deserted city leads the Doctor to sabotage his own ship and put his friends in jeopardy! As a result, they discover one of the most legendary villains in Doctor Who history! That’s right, Dalekmania begins here! Strap in because the Daleks are a bit more chatty than exterminate-y in the first four episodes of THE DALEKS!



  • Episode 197: The Unquiet Dead OR I Ain't Afraid of No Gelth

    7 July 2020 (2:08pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 51 minutes and 46 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    The race to 200 begins with THE UNQUIET DEAD! With mere weeks to go until we hit our 200th episode, we review the 9th Doctor story that John would often tell friends "Yeah, you don't have to see this one." Well, he's happy to admit he was wrong. The Doctor and Rose land in Naples...wait, no, sorry...Cardiff...in 1860! Wait...no, sorry...1869! On Christmas eve! At least that part is still correct. Just in time to catch Charles Dickens giving a live performance. Well, that wasn’t their goal, but nonetheless...they do show up in time a decent recreation of some scenes from Ghostbusters because a race of rather gaseous beings (no, not the Slitheen, they’re next week) are catfishing the humans into letting them rock up and take over! Be sure to share us with friends, give us a follow on the socials, and wear ya damn masks!

    The Doctor and Rose are investigating strange things afoot at a school (near a UFO sighting, no less). New headmaster, new staff, new amazing achievements amongst the student body! And, apparently, a new brand of chips being served in the lunch room. What’s behind all this strangeness? Could it be a certain Watcher from a completely different TV series?! Well, Sarah Jane is on the case and The Doctor, Rose, and two tin dogs are along for the ride! It’s a School Reunion!

But not all is well in the ready room and those Ironsides are playing a loooong con in order to resurrect the Dalek race!

    Direct Podcast Download

    Io Kronos! All hail the somewhat owl-shaped demi-god of time!! Yes, it's time to tackle THE TIME MONSTER! This six-parter is a downright wacky romp with questionably named projects, The Master at his best, tools of questionable shape, Atlantis (!), UNIT, Bessie's Super Drive, slow motion effects, and Season 9 ends with a naked Sgt. Benton! And that, seriously, is just the tip of the iceberg that is The Time Monster! Strap in and let's dive in!

We have 13th century England, sword fighting, The Master in disguise, an original song, and a shape-shifting android! Sounds like a total recipe for success, right? Well, you'll have to listen to the episode to get the deep and dirty on our feelings for how Doctor Who wrapped this anniversary season.

    This week The Black Guardian Trilogy concludes with ENLIGHTENMENT! The Doctor, Tegan, and Turlough land on what appears to be an Edwardian era ship. Well, it is...but it’s in space. You know, as you do. Our team finds themselves as part of a race between a bunch of Eternals who’re cosplaying as sea-going types and borrowing humans from throughout time in order to achieve Enlightenment! But who set the race in motion?! The answer will be (not surprisingly) enlightening! Be sure to rate & review and please share us with friends!

    This is it, folks...we've reached TERMINUS. Not the end of the podcast, no that's not for quite some time. Just the 5th Doctor episode that sees the departure of Nyssa, the continued whining of Tegan and Turlough, and the appearance of the cryptid Dogman...well, it's called The Garm here. This week we take a look at this story along with an absolute tonne of Big Finish news and some really rather obscure references! Join us, won't you?

    The Doctor and Romana find themselves, inadvertently, on Skaro centuries after he was last there (insert cross-reference to Genesis of the Daleks here). Both the Daleks and the Movellans (who appear to have escaped from a Buggles music video) are trying to find a very cobweb covered Davros way down in his base. Why are they both trying to find Davros? What can he possibly offer either group? The answer may well determine the DESTINY OF THE DALEKS!

    Hot off the heels of his adventure with his prior two selves, The Doctor (along with Jo) land on the SS Bernice (not Metebelis 3, I promise you) in 1926. Well, sort of. The answer turns out to be far more bizarre as we meet Harry Sullivan’s doppelganger, some Drashigs, journey to the center of the miniscope, and get taken for a ride on the Carnival of Monsters! Join John and Taylor as they review the second story of Season 10!

    This week we're joined by Justin Quizon to watch THE ENEMY OF THE WORLD! And we were all blown away by the scope and execution of this amazing adventure! The Doctor, Jamie, and Victoria land in Australia, 2018 where Ramon Salamander is slowly but surely taking control of the world. It just so happens that The Doctor looks exactly like Salamander and what follows is a globe-spanning adventure of intrigue, double crossing, and multiple layers of awesomeness. Did we mention this was all done in 1967?



  • Episode 187: Vengeance on Varos OR It's Crazy. It's Cruel. It's Varos!

    Well, they can't all be zingers. And Vengeance on Varos is no zinger. As a dark, bleak, dystopian adventure, this story falls a little flat and relies on a bit of handwavium at times. There are still, however, some prescient takes on culture, decent effects, and Sil. He really steals the show! This week, we close out the 6th Doctor's televised adventures with Vengeance on Varos!



  • Episode 186: The Time Warrior OR A Longshank Rascal with a Mighty Nose

    Call it serendipity or synchronicity, but on the anniversary of the passing of Liz Sladen, we just happened to choose to review THE TIME WARRIOR which saw (among many things) the introduction of Sarah Jane Smith! We dive into this story and really enjoyed the rollicking adventure that it provides! Grab your tights and a flagon of mead and let's talk about The Time Warrior!!



  • Episode 185: Ghost Light OR Everyone's Going to Java

    LIIIIGHT! Yes, this week we review the final 7th Doctor story (that we haven't reviewed yet) with Ghost Light! They certainly tried to pack a ton into a three-episode story. It comes off as a rather bonkers story that's mostly mystery for an episode and a half and then goes properly off the rails as an alien entity grapples with something every Doctor Who fan has to accept: change. And not a moment too soon, amirite? Join us as we stare at the sun with Ghost Light!



  • Episode 184: Paradise Towers OR Build High for Happiness

    Last week, John said he needed some 7th Doctor in his life and PARADISE TOWERS is just what the Doctor ordered! We sit down and review what starts as a rather bonkers little story that definitely has some dark turns within! Cannibal grannies, anyone? Not to mention some absolute bangers (literally!) from Pex! So grab a can of fizzy pop, throw on your favorite color (only if it's blue or red), and join us as we travel to the top of Paradise Towers!

    This was undoubtedly the story in which Barbara encapsulated all of Doctor Who for all time: "All the Doors and Corridors are Exactly Alike." Indeed they do! But this week John & Taylor took a tour of THE SPACE MUSEUM! They were impressed by its high concept and how the story kept you guessing well into Act 4 if our TARDIS crew were changing history or stuck being part of it. Join us as we grab a pamphlet from the front desk and make our way through The Space Museum!!

    Sorry, Marvel fans, THE FIVE DOCTORS is the most ambitious crossover of all time. It just is. The sheer number of characters and cameos in this story (that doesn't even belong to a season! It's a Children in Need special!) boggles the mind! This week, John & Taylor delightfully devoured The Five Doctors and were in awe of its scope and what it did to expand Doctor Who lore/canon! Not to mention all the stuff that had been planned for it. So escape the current situation and join us for one helluva ride!

    Are you self-isolating comfortably? Then we'll begin. Yes, it's our first episode in what feels like two years (but has only been two weeks). We spend the first part of the episode catching up and looking at our new reality (probably more episodes!) and the dive into the debut of Leela and the fantastic story THE FACE OF EVIL! Join us, please! Share us with friends (at a safe distance, of course) and stay safe in the meantime!

    There we go, there's season 12 of Doctor Who. And what an ending we had! Regardless of how you (or fandom) felt about it, there's no denying that there have been some amazing changes, a whole lot more back story over which to mull, and LOTS and LOTS more questions! John & Taylor dive through the boundary and into The Timeless Children. What worked, what left us scratching heads, and what do we make of the questions posed to us! Come join us for the adventure and give us your thoughts!

    Friends of a Whovian flavor, what in the name of Blinovitch is happening?! For the first time in a very long time, John and Taylor are a bit lost as to having a feel for what's coming next. It could literally be anything, at this rate. So we break from our regular format this week and spend more time looking at the details and speculating ourselves silly trying to figure out where things might be headed next week! SPOILER WARNING! If you want to avoid a little bit of potential spoiler chat, skip from about 1:13:00 to about 1:18:10.

    We're coming down off Gallifrey One weekend and spend a little time recapping Day 3 of Gally before diving into THE HAUNTING OF VILLA DIODATI! A shape-shifting house, ghosts, the macabre, animated hands, and one single solitary Cyberman on a mission! Join us as we review possibly our favorite episode of the season (tied for first at the very least)!
