    Time for another bit of hindsight. Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Tansy as we discuss Deb's modern Who pick to look back at, "The Rings of Akhaten". Fandom really hates this one. And we (mostly) didn't love it the first time around. Do we now? Have we grown souls (according to Liz)? Listen and see!

    Have you revisited this story recently? If so, what did you think, and how did that compare with how you felt about it in the first place? And how do you think this story compares to "Vincent and the Doctor"? Let us know in the comments!

    • Liz looks forward to Big Finish's Time Lord Victorious audios!
    • Tansy is enjoying AcornTV for British shows with Doctor Who actors!
    • Erika and Deb were both pleased with the "turnout" for the #DoctorWhoBlackout Tweet-along and all the money raised for Black Lives Matter causes!
    • Deb also enjoyed the Doctor Who Lockdown Longsong!
