    We land on the Galápagos Islands with the Doctor and Evelyn to review Bloodtide from Big Finish. And since this is a Silurian story, we try to cobble together a timeline of their history and are flummoxed by the inconsistencies. A story overflowing with historical characters and ideas, we wonder if Silurian Tulok's real crime was genetically engineering lady bumps on Silurian women. Opening music is "Tried" and closing music "The Cave"; both pieces composed by Alistair Lock for Bloodtide.

    After a quick recap of our afternoon playing the Quiz of Rassilon with fellow teammates Greg and Jess, we discuss space opera. We explore which stories fit the genre and what does it take to make a space opera story in Doctor Who? The conventional wisdom is Doctor Who is a genre machine, so how frequently does it dip into space opera like other popular sci-fi franchises like Star Trek and Star Wars? Opening and closing music is from "The Frontier in Space," composed by the incomprable Dudley Simpson.
