    It's time for another "perfect match"! Join Erika, Katrina, and Tansy as we dig into Kat's excellent choices: "The Five Doctors" and "The Day of the Doctor". That pairing seems so obvious now that Kat pointed it out! We delve into the function of anniversary specials and multi-Doctor stories and take a look at how they work both then and now.

    What do you think about these two stories? Any echoes we didn't have time to mention that you want to make sure get some love? Tell us in the comments!

      • wants one of the Series 11 crew t-shirts!
      • can't wait for the Fourth Doctor's continuing Big Finish adventures!
    • Erika
      • wants her Uncanny TV! (and to continue to be paid for her hard work!) so if you have some dollars to spare, consider throwing them toward Year Five of Uncanny Magazine via the Kickstarter!
      • hooked another one -- in starting a new podcast about Wynonna Earp, she accidentally started one of her co-hosts on the road to binge-ville and Whovianism!
