    This week’s WhoTube is not a WhoTube at all. It is a VortexVimeo called “Doctor Express” made by our very own Matt! http://vimeo.com/34108234

    This week on the Arrow of Time we do a stumble through (literally) of the Doctor Who series 8 finale, “Death In Heaven.” To make this grand finale more grand we decided to double the amount of people on the podcast to a whopping eight! Join Joseph, Matt, Gabe and Dave, as they are joined by Kirby, Conrad, Sean, and the ever delightful Ivan. Was breaking their four person limit a mistake? …Or the BEST decision ever!!! You decide!

    Out of all of the reveals to come from “Dark Water,” the biggest has to be that people don’t know who the master is. They obviously don’t listen to our podcast! If they did, they might even know who the Rani is, and share our disappointment at Moffat’s tendency to reintroduce new things. Still, we don’t have much bad to say about this penultimate episode. And of course, since this story is a two-parter, speculation abounds once more! What will the big finale twist be? Clara is the Doctor? The Doctor is the Master!? Everything is exactly as it seems!?! Yeah, probably.

    This week Dave brings us two books for our You Can’t Have Two Books segment, Counter-Clock World by Philip K. Dick and Time’s Arrow by Martin Amis.

    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 7 minutes and 4 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Just what we needed, an episode that features one of our “favorite” things, right up there with the production “style” of Steven “Moffat.” “In the Forest of the Night” starts off on the right foot with a William Blake reference, but then quickly becomes full of children, likely with sticky Jammie Dodger hands. There are also lots and lots of trees (at least four), but mostly nothing happens, so we end up speculating wildly about the next episode. Missy is the Rani? The Rani is the Master!? Clara is Handles!?! We’ve got to be right someday!

    For Mogli‘s Fantastic Book Break, Dave brings us the obvious once again with Songs of Innocence and of Experience by William Blake. Check it out at Project Gutenberg!

    The new guy is two for two! Jamie Mathieson quickly shoots up the Doctor Who episode writing charts with “Flatline!” Sure, this may have one of those this-has-never-happened-before- except-the-time-it-did type situations, but he’s just channeling Moffat. And for all of Stevie-boy’s big talk, Matheison actually delivers monsters that make you run for the back of the couch! The metaphorical couch. In your mind. We don’t own a couch.

    Dave’s It’s a Book Dave for this podcast is the obvious one for once, Flatland by Edwin Abbott Abbott. That is not a typo. Check it out at Project Gutenberg!

    Are you my mummy? Ha ha, no, seriously. I seem to have misplaced it. I think I left it on a train. In space! Hopefully our “Mummy on the Orient Express” podcast will help jog my memory. Let’s see, we’ve got talk of guest stars, an odd disdain for Foxes, herring both red and otherwise, and even some mention of the plot… but nothing about my mummy. Oh well, it always finds its way home after a light killing spree.

    This week Dave Has a Book and it is Ticket to Ride by Dennis Potter. [Ed. Note: Insert Harry Potter joke here.]

    Who would think that something called “Kill the Moon” would lead to the most contentious episode of the Arrow of Time yet? Thrill as we examine the merits of metaphor! Thrill some more as we dissect sloppy science! Thrill yet again as we debate minutiae most people completely ignore! It’s just like our usual podcasts, but with more yelling!

    This week Dave blows up the book Making History: A Novel by Stephen Fry, by which I mean he calmly discusses it.

    School is back in session and it’s time yet again to do what any good Time Lord would do… infiltrate the campus under the guise of a member of the faculty or staff (this time it’s staff)! Join Joseph, Matt, Gabe and Dave as they traverse the potential story arcs and one slim possible plot hole of “The Caretaker,” as well as an impromptu cat fight. It will spin you around so much you might need an air sick bag for the TARDIS! (Which is kind of a series plot for Karen Gillan’s new show.) So let’s set our watches to invisible as we ignite this new episode of The Arrow of Time!

    For all your booking needs, check out Dave’s choicest of novels by the rarely-mentioned-on-the-podcast Douglas Adams, and his book Last Chance to See.

    We were all set to plan our next heist, but we got distracted by Doctor Who and beer. Still, we did uncover the answer to the second oldest question in the universe: What does Delphox say? At least, I think we did. For the life of me, I can’t seem to remember! It’s a good thing we recorded a podcast about “Time Heist,” or we’d really be up a creek. Also, what is this horrifying worm thing doing here?

    This week’s Book by Mail is Driving Jarvis Ham by Jim Bob. Just Jim Bob. As in Bob. Jim Bob.

    Do we have a WhoTube, you ask? Yes, yes we do. It is “Doctor Who Fanvid – Through the Kaleidoscope of Time (Tenth Doctor)” by DiarFar: http://youtu.be/EDA4lipbG2A

    Some creatures evolve to have perfect hunting. Some get perfect defense. Here at the Arrow of Time we have evolved perfect drinking. Whilst practicing that trait we watch “Listen” and join the Doctor in wondering if anything has perfected hiding (Harry Potter seems pretty good, but that's a different podcast). Will Steven Moffat succeed in overcoming his hackery, or will this be Season Leaf Part Two? The verdict: three out of four podcasters agree that this is an episode to experience while hiding behind your soda. I mean sofa. I mean beer.

    For this week's book thing, Dave brings us The Island of the Day Before by Umberto Eco.

    Robin Hood and Little John running through the TARDIS, Oo-De-Lally, Oo-De-Lally, golly what a day! And golly what a podcast! The four are once again reunited to talk about Robot of Sherwood. The episode, not the one robot, because there were several robots. I think that might be false advertising. I’m not sure, but what I do know is that we spat out quite a podcast, in record time for an episode. We might as well be splitting arrows here!

    The WhoTube is once again from K9HumpsMyLeg with the fantastic video wrapping up the episode called “Doctor Who – Robot Of Sherwood – Holding Out For A Hero” –

    For Dave’s “Oh Book, So Book”, he recommends you pick up Parzival: Wolfram Von Eschenbach.

    Have you ever wondered what a Dalek is really made of? I mean besides hate and Nikelodeon Gak. Well the Doctor attempts to answer that question by going “Into the Dalek,” having a full and complete break down in the process. In the absence of Joseph and Gabe we are joined by the always entertaining team of Santiago and Sarah. So fire up those amazing shrinking machines and get your copy books ready as Moffat takes us someplace we’ve never been before, or ever really wanted to go in the first place.

    Dave's choice for our I Don’t Know What To Call This Book Segment segment is Kurt Vonnegut's Slapstick, or Lonesome No More, which has exactly as many titles as it sounds!

    With just days to go until we get to know the who of a new Doctor, we decide to do a temporal 180 and review a slew of historical figures from the show’s past. That’s right folks, the Arrow of Time goes both ways! (That’s what she said.) So strap in as we go back in time with such greats as Queen Elizabeth, Winston Churchill, and Richard Nixon. One of those things is not like the other!

    Dave's choice for our Choking On an Odd Purple Fluid segment is Viniq Shimmery Liqueur, which isn’t nearly as deadly as it sounds (it’s pretty deadly)!

    We're a man down this week, but Matt, Joseph, and Gabe tough it out and discuss, among other things, an interview Steven Moffat gave to SFX Magazine or Web Page or What Have You. Along the way, we find out why we won't see the Doctor reliving old car commercials with Clara, give a brief update on the addictive mobile game Doctor Who Legacy, and discover the riches Matt was bestowed thanks to our fair city playing host to the madness known as San Diego Comic-Con.

    Matt's choices for our Last Comic Booking segment are Titan Comics’ Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor #1 and Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor #1, which weren’t nearly as easy to cram into this sentence as usual!

You can be sure we will dissect these to the point of unrecognition, thus shielding you, gentle listener, from their effect. Also, we discuss a Buzzfeed quality list and a groovy game, Doctor Who Legacy.

We should’ve know that we had nothing to worry about. What starts as a slow boil quickly leaves the confines of the pot as we jump from topic to topic, some of them even about Doctor Who! Our promise to you, gentle viewers, is this: neither snow nor rain nor drought of news will stay us from our daily… uh, weekly… um… We’ll keep doing podcasts.

    Dave’s choice for our Bookmark of the Rani segment is Umberto Eco’s The Infinity of Lists, which isn’t nearly as long as it sounds!

    A famous person once said that the only constant is change. Being the hack original thinker that he is, Steven Moffat has taken up that mantra and vows to shake things up in Series Eight. We discuss this, a (decidedly short) brand new teaser trailer, some upcoming guest stars who have never been on the show before, the first musician to ever be in an episode and loads more! In keeping with the change theme, we also introduce some new tangents!

    Dave’s choice for our Book Nook segment is QI’s Book of the Dead, which isn’t nearly as depressing as it sounds!

    We can hardly believe it’s been nine years since the Ninth Doctor first graced our TV screens! In honor of this momentous occasion, we thought that we would try something new: a retrospective on all of the Doctors! We love talking about them! They’re all fantastic, even Crotchety Grumpmire the First and Freakadoo Weirdson the Sixth (not their real names, obvs). So settle in, grab a gin and tonic, rum and Coke, or some dynamic combination thereof, and enjoy as we take you through all of space and time again for the first time.

    A retrospective of this nature just wouldn’t be complete without some sort of visual element, so thankfully user Sam Vestey has compiled video of all the Doctors for this week’s WhoTube, “Celebrating 50 Years of American Doctor Who” - http://youtu.be/bCv5o7n_mtk

    Just because officially released information has slowed to a trickle doesn’t mean we can’t deliver Who news you can Who use! New monsters! New enemies! New-old monster-enemies! The recently revealed Ms. Delphox is described as the most sinister villain yet: a banker! Great social commentary there, writers, really stickin’ it to the man with that one. This episode also features another edition of our book corner, whimsically named The Who-ey Decimal System, in which Dave discusses The Humanism of Doctor Who by David Layton. Lastly, we introduce a less fanciful new segment, It’s a DVD, covering the release of Second Doctor story Moonbase.

    There’s a new companion in our future, as you have probably already heard because it was announced a billionty weeks ago. I will now attempt to distract you from our tardiness with a bulleted list of topics discussed on this episode of the podcast:

    • New companion Danny Pink (pictured)
    • Companions in general
    • Doctor Who‘s schedule
    • Pros and cons of a changing fan base
    • Is Stephen Moffat going to leave because he’s a big whiner who says that he doesn’t have enough time to work on anything but Doctor Who even though there’s only like a dozen episodes a year and besides it’s his own fault that it takes so long anyway
    • Pants

    Like the ebb and flow of the tides, a new Doctor is regularly carried to our television shores. With him comes a number of changes: a new personality, new stories, even new companions, but perhaps most importantly, a new title sequence outfit. This week we take a break from not making podcasts to examine Peter Capaldi’s wardrobe choices, and some of those other things I mentioned, probably.

    At the Arrow of Time, we may have given Steven Moffat a bit of grief from time to time about his tenure as showrunner. Oh, who are we kidding… If there was a drinking game where you took a drink every time we said “Steven Moffat is a hack,” we’d be responsible for many a hangover! In light of recent events, we think that we may have been unfair to Moffat. Spoilers: we have concluded that a number of his recent episodes are in fact quite good, so this week we pay credit where it is due.

    Also in the episode, we said we’d link to this Nerdcubed episode where Moffat says some things about future episodes: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JeCM7LiThEs

Matt sits down once again with Kate and Kelley to reminisce about what the theatrical experience of the 50th was like. Everything from the on screen trivia to the intense fans who answered the call (but didn’t answer the call of routine bathing). So grab your mail order sonic screwdriver, pull up those TARDIS leggings from Hot Topic, and glue that egg beater on to your homemade Dalek costume, ’cause we’re about to take you to the epicenter of the multiplex.

    In case you didn’t get a chance to catch it in theaters, here is a clip of the fun theater etiquette with Strax followed by the “put your glasses on” speech that the Doctor gives, that way you won’t be in the dark, or you will be, I don’t know how it works for movies…

    You know that dream where you go to church, but make the beginner’s mistake of not wearing clothes? Well hold on to your trousers, because it just became The Most Awkward Doctor Who Plot Device, Ever! In the ostensible Christmas special “The Time of the Doctor,” Steven Moffat borrows heavily from everything he’s ever written and some things he hasn’t, and then throws in a dash of implied/not-so-implied nudity just to angry up the fans. Christmas is in jeopardy (the town, not the holiday), all of his enemies have returned, and the Doc’s running around starkers! This really is a weird thing to be focusing on around Christmas (the holiday, not the town).

    The Doctor Who 50th special had a couple of Doctors in it, which, you know, cool. It’s still a bit disappointing that the other nine (not counting the one we didn’t know about) were left high and proverbially dry. Enter Big Finish and their audio drama “The Light at the End.” Every other surviving Doctor, minus Eccleston, plus some very good voice doubles, gets together to tell a story without all those pesky visuals getting in the way. No matter how gray or round they might now be, it’s easy to imagine each Doctor in their prime. Well, maybe not so much Colin Baker, he sounds a bit jowly.

    This week we’re knee deep in WhoTubes!

    We invite you to go halfsies with us as we go scene by scene and try to make some sense out of the thirty second trailer for “The Time of the Doctor.” As usual there are a few tangents — we mention things like Fringe and Harry Potter – but then again they might prove to not be so tagenty after all. I mean look at that picture, the Doctor is wearing a robe and there are magical sparks everywhere! We’ve held our record now for being eighty percent wrong, but will we break it this year? Tune in and find out!

    For your seasonal listening pleasure we used “Merry Xmas Everyone” by Slade.

    aaisatGet ready for some fun, it’s Doctor number — oh, who am I kidding. An Adventure in Space and Time is an emotional roller coaster: fun for a bit, then a harrowing tunnel of sadness before it’s over and demands you exit to the right. Sure, we learned about the creation of our beloved show, meeting the fantastic people who made it happen. We were even forced to raise William Hartnell’s Standardized Doctoring Assessment from “needs improvement” to “exceeds expectations.” But did Mark Gatiss need to completely devastate us along the way?

    This week we take a break from the 50th festivities to bring you an episode out of its time (we recorded it in the past and make occasional dated comments about the 50th happening soon). Listen as Matt is joined by podcasters Kate and Heather with their take on David Tennant, ’cause there’s always more to talk about with this gentleman, ALWAYS MORE!

    The break songs in this episode are “Turn To Stone” by ELO, and “Alien 8″ by Lagwagon.

    At the Arrow of Time, we enjoy probing into deep important topics, such as whether or not the comedy joke show known as “The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot” is really a satirical sad sack of smelly socks. Or, if we have multiple Doctors, would they be called Doctor Whos or Doctors Who? Join us as we delve into that and much more!

    For our WhoTube, we have “Holding Out for a Hero (a Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart fanvid)” from Calapine, and the Brigadier is Ace. But probably not the Ace you were expecting. http://youtu.be/KhbeaRvLX7c

    dayofthedocThis week we delve into Doc number twelve! Wait. No. Hold on, I’ve got this. This week’s pretty nifty, it’s Doctor Who year fifty! Whether at home or in theaters, in two dimensions or in three, you’re in for a treat with the anniversary special no matter who your favorite Doctor is, as long as it’s Matt Smith or David Tennant. All told, “The Day of the Doctor” is just about as great as it can be considering the obvious exclusion of a certain fantastic actor. I speak, of course, of Bernard Cribbins. I mean, who dropped that ball on that one?

    Like sands through the hourglass, these are the Tubes of our Who. Actually, just the one this week. LastWhovianTrailers brings us “50 Years in the TARDIS”:

    For this deluxe edition of The Arrow of Time and a Half, Joseph, Matt, Gabe, and Dave talk about “The Night of the Doctor,” the latest and super exciting prequel that came out, and why we are all singing joyous praises to Moffat for his mere 6 and a half minute minisode (that word is still irritating).

    Music that was used in this episode for breaks and whatnot includes ”Television” and “If You Know Time” by Robyn Hitchcock, and ”The Warrior” by Patti Smyth.

    Something that rhymes with eleven, it’s time for Doctor eleven! That’s right, with only a week to go until the 50th Anniversary we talk about Matt Smith for a surprisingly long time considering we’ve been podcasting about him for years now. Nevertheless, people grow and opinions change, so grab your quirky friend Geoff and enjoy this eleventieth and final ode to the Doctors (at least, for now)!

    Here we go again, it’s Doctor number ten! We’ve nearly finished our countdown to the 50th, which means that the time has come for the Greatest Doctor of Them All (in an eleven way tie for first), David Tennant! Holy Ood, this episode is long. I’m pretty sure we say literally everything, and then keep going for good measure. Of course, there’s a lot to be said about Tennant, I just hope the podcast doesn’t come off as overwrought or contrived.

    You don’t have to travel through time to divine that this week we’re talking about Doc number nine! One good thing to come from watching the John Nathan-Turner era of Doctor Who is a newfound appreciation for tolerance of Russel T Davies. Despite his relative awfulness, Rusty earns a feather in his cap for managing to find a fantastic actor to portray the new Doctor, a certain Christopher “Chris” Eccleston. Though he was never really a big fan of the show, Chris “Don’t Call Me Chris” Eccleston tackles the role with aplomb. And sometimes a banana. Bananas are good!

    This midweek we kick off what’s sure to be a sporadic new feature: The Arrow of Time and a Half. These shorter, simpler episodes eschew musical breaks and WhoTubes in order to deliver a quick dose of podcast. This time, we are predictably late talking about the 5oth Anniversary teaser, which is just chock full of references to Who’s past. We try to sort them all out as we look for clues about “The Day of the Doctor,” all in under thirty minutes! Now that’s bang for your buck, if “buck” were a unit of time.

    It’s never too late for Doctor eight! Though he only ever graced our screens for a single outing, Paul McGann helped pave the way for the series as we know it today. And while you may not be able to see him and his luscious locks, he’s put in a Doctor’s share of work on an array of delightful audio books radio dramas sound things for listening. Now put on your best fancy dress and get ready to podcast like it’s 1999!

    We continue our progression with Doctor number seven! That’s right, we’ve arrived at Percy James Patrick Kent-Smith, better known to his fans as Sylvester McCoy. I usually ramble on a bit here, but this week I’ll let Dave’s excellent picture do the talking. Well, that and the podcast, there’s lots of talking there, I’m sure.

    Get your kicks with Doc number six! This week we cover Colin Baker, who despite all available evidence is not, in fact, colorblind. He manages to clear most of the hurdles during his tenure, from producer John Nathan-Turner’s ineptitude to Perry’s bizarre moon accent. His time in the Doctor’s shoes may be a mixed bag, but don’t go strangling your companion just yet! Three out of four podcasters agree: Colin Baker’s all right.

    This week we dive into Five! Peter Davison’s his name, and cricket’s his game (which apparently is like baseball by way of M.C. Escher). Following on the heels of Tom Baker, Davison had big shoes to fill. Does he have enough soul to get our support or should I stop trying to shoehorn puns in here? The former is easily answered by listening in to our latest podcast, and the latter is a resounding yes.

    We’re back for more with Four! This week we don our scarves and look back at that perennial fan favorite, Thomas Eugene Stewart Baker. This is one Doctor that always puts on a good show, whether he’s saving space and time with a bag of Jelly Babies or just gadding about the galaxy. And he has some pretty great companions too! So listen to us try to do Baker justice in under ninety minutes and decide for yourself whether he is a great Doctor, or the greatest Doctor (at least until Tennant shows up).

    We may have gone down this WhoTube path before, but by Jove, it’s too good not to give another go. Enjoy Tardisgirlfrance’s “Tom Baker Doctor Who being childish sometimes”: http://youtu.be/KRDPb3P0Qw0
