    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 13 minutes and 1 second

    Friends, what if we told you that we have the perfect Halloween costume idea for you and you'd get to go the whole night without having to talk to anyone! No? You don't want to have a ping pong ball in your mouth all night? Alright then, fine! But just hear us out as we talk about the Monoids, the plague that Dodo brings, the 1st Doctor "hmm'-ing a lot, Cushman carts of the deep future, and an honest-to-goodness elephant on set as we review the First Doctor adventure The Ark!!


  • Episode 298: The Mind of Evil OR Very Maybe

    16 January 2024 (1:41pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 13 minutes and 56 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    The Mind of Evil might just be Doctor Who at its greatest attempt to be an action-adventure show with a little bit of science fiction thrown in! The story is split between Stangmoor Prison and a Peace Conference for which UNIT is providing security (except for when everyone races off to the prison for the back half of the story). The Master has built a machine to harvest evil feelings, but also wants to steal a missle and blow up the conference! Looks, there's really a lot going on here and we haven't even gotten to the dragon...so get ready for some great faces from Pertwee and let's dive in!!


  • Podcastica Episode 297: The Church on Ruby Road OR Synchronicity Storms

    2 January 2024 (2:29pm GMT)

    Direct Podcast Download

    Happy New Year, friends! We're starting 2024 with a look at Ncuti Gatwa's first full episode as The Doctor, The Church on Ruby Road! And on Ruby Road, we find Ruby Sunday! So, new Doctor, new companion (er, friend...), and new adventures as RTD starts weaving some fantastical elements into our fave sci-fi show. And we are totally here for it! In fact, we're left to wonder if maybe RTD has seen a certain documentary about high strangeness that we both enjoy!


  • Podcastica Episode 296: The Giggle OR Chaotic Bi-Generation Energy

    12 December 2023 (2:01pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 19 minutes and 40 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Omigosh, friends, it has come and gone! The 60th Anniversary Specials have come to a smashing close with The Giggle! There's so much to talk about: The Toymaker, UNIT, what's that Vlinx thing?, Mel!, bi-generation...and what that means thematically for not just The Doctor but Doctor Who as a show. So gather the wee babbies around and let's dive into it! Programming Note: We're both traveling around Christmas time, so this is our last episode for 2023 and we'll discuss the Christmas special at the first of the new year!


  • Podcastica Episode 295: Wild Blue Yonder OR A Lifeform with a Bum

    5 December 2023 (1:42pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 11 minutes and 26 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Off we go! Off to watch Wild Blue Yonder! Don't worry, I won't turn this entire synopsis into a song! It's far too early for that. But this week we watched the 2nd of the 60th Anniversary Specials: Wild Blue Yonder! In which we learn the value in not knowing everything that's going to happen in a story before it airs. And it was freakin' bonkers as The Doctor and Donna land on a ship out at the edge of the universe where something (some...not-things) are trying to get in. And what ensues in a visually stunning adventures in which our beloved actors really get to work double duty!


  • Podcastica Episode 294: The Star Beast OR Shatterfry the Positrons!

    29 November 2023 (1:40pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 21 minutes and 15 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    DOCTOR WHO IS BACK, BABY! Holy smokes, are we ever stoked to have Doctor Who back on our screens! This time around, we dive into the first of the 60th Anniversary specials: The Star Beast! Yes, we have small nitpicks, but they're small and don't take away from our overall enjoyment of this adventure. We won't spoil any of it here, so slap on those headphones, flip all the switches you can find, and settle in for The Star Beast!


  • Podcastica Episode 293: The Celestial Toymaker OR Shal We Play a Game?

    7 November 2023 (1:37pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 11 minutes and 28 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    How far will two guys go to learn more about The Toymaker? Will they endure telesnaps and amateur animations? They will! With The Giiggle in our not-to-distant future, it was high time we got to know this immortal craftsman with a penchant for games. So we did our best to watch The Celestial Toymaker (and will likely revisit it when the animated version comes out). We also have a boatload of Who News and the slew of story notes, so grab a drink and get comfortable!


  • Podcastica Episode 292: Planet of Evil OR Welcome to the Jungle

    24 October 2023 (12:35pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 0 minutes and 30 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Welcome to the jungle! But there really aren't a lot of fun and games on the furthest charted planet in the universe as something is killing of the crew of a geology ship. As is far too often the case, The Doctor and Sarah Jane are the suspects, but the reality turns out to be far stranger with an anti-matter monster on the loose! That's right, join us on the Planet of Evil where there's an amazing jungle set!


  • Podcastica Episode 291: The Awakening OR A Town Called Malice

    10 October 2023 (12:37pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 3 minutes and 56 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    This is it, folks! With The Awakening, we've now reviewed every televised 5th Doctor story! And to describe this story as one that doesn't overstay its welcome is fairly apt! It's not a stunner, but it's also not a stinker. And, really, the star of the show is a giant sort of Green Goblin face that looks like it belongs in the Cave Train ride under some blacklights at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk! So join us as we don our LARPing outfits and check out The Awakening!


  • Podcastica Episode 290: The Invisible Enemy OR Journey to the Center of The Doctor

    26 September 2023 (12:37pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 6 minutes and 26 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    What a difference one story makes! Yes, this time we've gone backward in Season 15 by one story (yeah, our bad) to The Invisible Enemy and holy moly, friends, we loved this adventure! A sentient prawn virus is making plans to propagate not just from person to person, but also through TIME as it looks to take over The Doctor! Can a teeny version of The Doctor and Leela save the day as well as adopt a cute tin dog? You bet they can! So join us for The Invisible Enemy!


  • Podcastica Episode 289: Image of The Fendahl OR The Rider Wait-For-It Tarot Deck

    12 September 2023 (12:39pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 52 minutes and 2 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Classic Doctor Who! Doesn't it feel so good to be in that warm, cozy blanket? Well, there might be a few burrs in this specific blanket as Image of The Fendahl rubs us the wrong way in places. On the one hand, we're happy to see Tom Baker and Louise Jameson again, but at the same time there's almost too much going on in this story and it gets kinda dark at times...does things we're honestly surprised to see on Doctor Who!


  • Podcastica Episode 288: The Wedding of River Song OR The Feel Points

    29 August 2023 (12:40pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 0 minutes and 31 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    We did it! We've reached the end of our Summer of Season Six with The Wedding of River Song! And, naturally, it had to go out with a bang! Time is rebelling against itself (and River's efforts to prevent her killing The Doctor), but The Doctor always has one extra trick up his sleeve! So join us as we wrap up this season, take a look at our updated stats, and get excited for some Classic Who next time!


  • Podcastica Episode 287: Closing Time OR Semisonic Screwdriver

    15 August 2023 (12:37pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 58 minutes and 40 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    "Closing time! You don't have to go home, but you can't stay here!" Actually, wait, no you can stay here! In fact, we'd prefer if you stayed here and listened to our review of the 6th season episode "Closing Time!" Yes, it's James Corden. Yes, the Doctor talks to a baby. Yes, we kind of wonder why we see Amy & Rory at all. But there's also ruminations on what Carpool Karaoke would be like on a Cybership and the power of parenthood to pull you through tough situations!


  • Podcastica Episode 286: The Girl Who Waited OR Amy Pond's Big Adventure

    1 August 2023 (12:45pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 51 minutes and 57 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Well, it's an episode we knew we'd have to tackle eventually. The Girl Who Waited wasn't our favorite episode when it first aired. Over time, it appears that John has softened on it, but Taylor still feels like Moffat is putting Amy and Rory through the wringer any chance he gets. Join us as we process our feelings, talk about some Who News, and (as always) focus on the parts we enjoyed most!


  • Podcastica Episode 285: Night Terrors OR The New 2011 Nissan Tenza

    18 July 2023 (12:36pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 58 minutes and 45 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Well, reviewing Night Terrors led us to an interest debate that we're going to take up closer to Halloween: what's the scariest episode of Doctor Who? Because Taylor definitely thinks this story could take the cake! Between the various tropes. a possible homage to Poltergeist, the transition to Peg Doll effects, and lots of spooky directorial choices...Night Terrors definitely rates high on the Behind the Couch scale!


  • Podcastica Episode 284: A Good Man Goes to War OR I Would Like to See the Baby

    6 July 2023 (12:38pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 56 minutes and 7 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    The whole first half of Season 6 has led up to this! A GOOD MAN GOES TO WAR! The Doctor raises an army of friends and cameos and callsback to earlier in the season to storm Demon's Run to rescue Amy and her baby! But twists and turns abound in the Season 6 mid-season finale (remember when those were a thing?)! Join us for a romp through this adventure and then seek out Episode 205 for Let's Kill Hitler and the come back in two weeks for Night Terrors!


  • Podcastica Episode 283: The Almost People OR No Use Crying Over Spilled Ganger

    20 June 2023 (12:39pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 56 minutes and 24 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    This week we watched The Almost People and realize that we probably should have watched it alongside The Rebel Flesh from last time. Sometimes the weight of having a massive reveal at the end (that doesn't impact the current episode) leads to an unbalanced storyline. And given a bit of the body horror present in this story, we wonder if the magical healing properties of the TARDIS are played a little too much toward the end. Regardless, we always find the bits we like most and try to focus on those!


  • Podcatica Episode 282: The Rebel Flesh OR A Good Ganger Goes to War

    6 June 2023 (12:38pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 46 minutes and 16 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Maybe we need to start calling this our Summer of Season Six as we continue to march through this era of Doctor Who. This week we watched The Rebel Flesh in which The Doctor, while trying to help folks through a solar tsunami accidentally gives that extra spark of life to programmable flesh and a whole slew of Spiderman pointing at himself memes ensue!


  • Episode 281: The Doctor's Wife OR Do You Want to Build a TARDIS?

    23 May 2023 (12:28pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 52 minutes and 32 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    It's the episode we swore we'd already reviewed (but hadn't)! Our tour of Season 6 continues with The Doctor's Wife! Spoilers: we loved this story! And it absolutely holds up almost 12 years later. Granted, there are a couple things that still had us wondering, but it didn't detract from our enjoyment of meeting Idris and trying to outwit House! So sit back and enjoy (no biting!).


  • Podcastica Episode 280: The Curse of The Black Spot OR Becalmed and Carry On

    9 May 2023 (12:47pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 54 minutes and 56 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    We keep that Season 6 train a'rollin friends with The Curse of The Black Spot! Flimsy pirate metaphors aside, we really enjoyed this episode, especially coming back to it basically knowing how it plays out and picking up on the cues and the story's own rules. Lots of great banter! Smith's ability to rattle off technobabble is without equal here! So swash those buckles and let's get into it!


  • Podcastica Episode 279: Day of the Moon OR Death Metal Fonts

    27 April 2023 (12:44pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 7 minutes and 33 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Well, we couldn't leave last episode's cliffhanger alone and so we dove into DAY OF THE MOON with gusto and are loving just how much fun we remembered having with this era of Doctor Who! This time around, Moff leans hard on the horror tropes as The Silence become even more of a menace and Team TARDIS (plus Canton) do their best to defeat them. All that, plus we kick around some new shirt ideas!


  • Episode 278: The Impossible Astronaut OR Who Shot D.R.?

    11 April 2023 (12:42pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 3 minutes and 26 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    This week we keep the Moffat train a-rollin' with THE IMPOSSIBLE ASTRONAUT! Yep, the Season Six opener that set the stage for the season's mystery and main story arc. This was peak Modern Who and we recount what fandom was like in this era along with how the show finally did some filming in America. John also thinks the show really has something against hats. This one definitely has some scares and some elements of horror, so be mindful of this one if the youngest viewers are around.


  • Episode 277: The Big Bang OR The Bow Tie Theory

    28 March 2023 (12:41pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 58 minutes and 22 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    After The Pandorica Opens...the Pandorica closes...and then opens again because the Doctor is jumping around in time (as he's wont to do) making sure that the cracks in the universe don't consume the whole thing and ensuring that his friends come out alright. Even if that means removing himself from the universe. But is the Doctor ever really gone? Hmm, that's a phrase we usually save for the Master! Anyway, this time we review The Big Bang...and a word of warning to our headphone listeners, Taylor's switched up his mic game this ep and is coming in a little hot. So maybe turn us down a notch or two.


  • Podcastica Episode 276: The Pandorica Opens OR What's in a Namesake

    14 March 2023 (12:38pm GMT)

    Hey friends, want to hear a funny story? It's a story about how this podcast got its name...275 episodes after our first episode. Yeah, time is definitely funny that way, but we're here this week to talk about The Pandorica Opens! The penultimate episode of Matt Smith's first season and all sorts of bonkers-ness is breaking out! So join as we finally get back into some Modern Who and see how well this story holds up almost 13 years after it first aired!


  • Podcastica Episode 275: Dimensions in Time OR Gotta Catch Em All

    Well, friends, your hosts are back in their respective homes and recovering from Gallifrey One, so they sit down with another annual tradition: a post-Gally ep chosen by friend of the show M.A. Solko! This time around, we're subjecting ourselves to the 1993 30th Anniversary Special "Dimensions in Time!" It's...well, it's definitely a thing that went to air. Regardless, we definitely have some fun with it as well as recap our Sunday at Gallifrey One last week.

  • Podcastica - Episode 272: Aliens of London & World War Three OR Return of the Floppy Monsters!

    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 3 minutes and 50 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    GALLIFREY ONE IS UPON US! But first, The Doctor and Rose return to the “present day” a mere 12 hours since they…wait, what? Okay, I’m getting late breaking news that the TARDIS still doesn’t have the best aim. They’ve actually returned 12 months since they last left! But, strangely enough, just in time for opportunistic aliens to whip the planet into a panic and slag the whole place in order to sell it off in the biggest fire sale ever! Toss in the introduction of Harriet Jones, MP for Flydale North and you have the Aliens of London nearly starting World War 3!


  • Podcastica Episode 271: The Green Death OR Terror with a Side of Flies

    31 January 2023 (1:49pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 26 minutes and 39 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    This time around, friends, we wrap up Season 10 of Classic Who with a look at The Green Death! That's right, the Doctor and Jo return to Earth just in time to take on a whole lot of craziness at a mine in Wales! The Doctor also makes that long-awaited trip to Metebelis III and that becomes one of the funniest parts of the whole serial! But all good things must come to an end as Jo chooses to depart at the end and we're hit with one of the more (if not most) emotional scenes in recent memory.


  • Podcastica Episode 270: Planet of the Daleks OR Not Actually Skaro

    17 January 2023 (1:44pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 16 minutes and 47 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    This time we continue our trek through Season 10 with Planet of the Daleks! It's basically the second half of the planned 12-parter with Frontier in Space, but this time instead of political intrigue and The Master, we get a whole lot of Daleks, a planet that can't decide if it's a jungle or a frozen wasteland (ice volcanoes, really...), invisible natives, and the return of the Thals who've now started spaceflight! The pacing is pretty good, Jo is (again) amazing, and there's a fair bit to enjoy with Planet of the Daleks!


  • Podcastica Episode 269: Frontier in Space OR No Corridors, Only Cells!

    3 January 2023 (2:07pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 11 minutes and 28 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Happy New Year, friends! We're starting off 2023 with a six-parter that was almost a 12-parter that could have probably been told better in four parts. Yep, it's Frontier in Space! We've got Earth-Draconian tensions at an all-time high, Ogrons working for The Master who is ultimately working for the Daleks, plus there's a big random orange blob! It's all sorts of craziness...and did we mention there's lots of time spent in jail cells?


  • Podcastica Episode 268: Nightmare of Eden OR This is Your Brain on Mandrels

    13 December 2022 (1:41pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 2 minutes and 59 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Drugs are bad, mmmkay? That's right, friends, we close out 2022 with an absolute goofball of a story with NIGHTMARE OF EDEN! What happens to your story with an anti-drug message when the director quits part way through principal photography? Well, you get a story much like this. It's not a complete disaster by any means and we're able to cherry pick the best parts. And on a programming note, we're going to take the Christmas holiday off and will be back with our next ep right at the start of 2023! Thanks so much for listening this year.


  • Podcastica Episode 267: The Abominable Snowmen OR Slenderman's Resting Smirkface

    Direct Podcast Download

    We love a good animation (and decry the fact that this appears to be the last one, unless maybe Disney is going to inject some cash that way...please!) and The Abominable Snowmen looks gorgeous! There is lots to like in this story, even though we felt it probably could have been told in four episodes. So grab your parka and pay respects at the monastery because it's time to go after The Abominable Snowmen!

    Well, we've been saying for a while that we've wanted to watch that other Peter Cushing Dr. Who film and, friends, that time is now! DALEKS' INVASION EARTH 2150 A.D. (note the lack of articles and prepositions, please). This is a fun ride! For as goofy and weird as these Dr. Who movies were, there's a lot of action, some incredible stunts, and (spoilers!) we give it a perfect 10 on our Duggan Scale! Join us as we take a look way back to 1966 with Daleks' Invasion Earth 2150 A.D.!


  • Podcastica Episode 265: The Power of The Doctor OR When Does Ten Equal Fourteen?

    Direct Podcast Download

    Well, friends, we've all had a week to rewatch and process our feelings about The Power of The Doctor (as well as all the news that dropped right after that aired)! This time we're going to spend quite a bit looking at this adventure, what it means to us, how well it caps off the Chibnall era & Jodie's run, and also talk a bit about what the future holds (and also gripe a little about how long it'll be before we have some new Doctor Who on the telly again).


  • Episode 264: Asylum of the Daleks OR Stir Eggs, 8 Min.

    12 October 2022 (12:45pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 6 minutes and 43 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    We're back, friends! Thanks for waiting that extra week! Totally appreciated. This time around we look at Asylum of the Daleks in which Amy & Rory are on the rocks, The Doctor is somehow both the predator of the Daleks & their temporary savior, and we meet Oswin who's currently working on her own series for Food Network, but it's not going so well. How long are you supposed to "stir" those "eggs" again? And will no one think of the milk!? We also talk about the trailer (finally!) for The Power of the Doctor as well as the super exciting Gallifrey One news!


  • Podcastica Episode 263: Resurrection of the Daleks OR And then More Murdering

    20 September 2022 (12:39pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 8 minutes and 48 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    LONDON 1984! Apparently a bleak hellscape in which the Daleks have a team of mercenary human clones (with helmets we're surprised didn't become a marketing opportunity) working to unearth Davros while also infiltrating various areas of human culture. See, there's a lot happening in Resurrection of the Daleks, but instead of anything getting resurrected, lots (and lots) of characters get gunned down...often for no reason. This is an unusual Doctor Who story if only for that fact, but it's one we'd have to review eventually!


  • Podcastica Episode 262: The Keeper of Traken OR Leave It to Beevers

    6 September 2022 (12:40pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 59 minutes and 50 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Well, this time we finally can mark Season 18 off our checklist (because we reviewed Logopolis a while ago...go check it out) with The Keeper of Traken! If reviewing almost a whole season in one stretch has shown us anything, it's that this season was fraught with issues. But they still put out some good stories (and ultimately gave Tom a satisfying send off). The Keeper of Traken had to not only further the season, but also introduce what would become a new companion and also reintroduce The Master. There are some stumbles, but they mostly stick the landing.


  • Podcastica Episode 261: Warrior's Gate OR Mobile Suit Gundan Wing

    23 August 2022 (12:41pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 5 minutes and 35 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    This time we round out the E-Space Trilogy and nearly all of Season 18 with Warrior's Gate! While we're not over the moon about this particular story, there are definitely reasons why this one suffered a bit during production. We can see where they were headed, but they don't quite get there. Plus, we really wish Romana & K9 got more of a goodbye than they did. As always, however, we try to find the best parts and this time we have to admit that Adric has a pretty impressive move! What was it? You've got to listen to find out!


  • Podcastica Episode 260: State of Decay OR Immature Hominoid, Non-Hostile

    9 August 2022 (3:02pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 11 minutes and 39 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    State of Decay may seem like another chance for the BBC to pull out its Shakespearean era costumes and give them some exercise, but the story (a Terrence Dicks classic) has a rich tapestry behind it that not only expands Gallifreyan lore, but also gives justification for the tropey vampire acting in this story! I mean, a race of ancient giant vampires vs. the Time Lords...like how has Big Finish not done a boxset on this yet? Anyway, we loved State of Decay (despite the many production challenges it had) and we think you will, too!

    Well, they can't all be stellar, but we always try to find the elements we like best in a Doctor Who story. That's the case with the opener to the E-Space Trilogy, Full Circle! Not only are we introduced to Adric, but we meet his brother (who definitely has some Oasis vibes), we peruse some binders, and we kind of wonder what tastes so odd in this fruit! Someone find the pilot and strap in because it's time to talk about Full Circle!

    While trying to repair K9, The Doctor and Romana find themselves in a time loop set up by an evil cactus named Meglos who has apparently inhabited the body of poor Nigel from Accounting and has a crazy plan to pretend to be the Doctor in order to steal a geometric shape of extreme power and, you know, rule the universe or some such craziness. Can the Doctor and Romana defeat Meglos, satisfy Brotadac’s lust for a nice coat, and prevent the destruction of Tigella? Well, grab that agave and strap in because…it…must…be…MEGLOS!!

    Up to now, we hadn't done any stories from Season 18 shy of Logopolis and we were missing out! This time we look at The Leisure Hive and while it starts with a bit of a slow-burn murder mystery it soon cranks up the bonkers with some of the greatest cliffhangers we've ever seen, a completely WTF ending, and a race of aliens who die when they've lost all the blueberries from their heads! Get ready for some wild blue screen magic with The Leisure Hive!

    Fourteen years ago today! Midnight premiered and gave us an episode that, at the time, we weren't all that impressed by. And now, in 2022, we revisit Midnight and are pleasantly surprised to say that we were totally wrong with our initial impressions back in 2008. Midnight is really good and, frankly, the paranoia and mob mentality hits a little stronger today than it probably did then.

    THE NIMON BE PRAISED! It's a new episode of Podcastica!! That's right, this time we get an absolute masterclass in overacting from Soldeed as he works to bring about the Second Skonnos Empire all while being absolutely played by the Nimon who are just looking for a new planet to invade. Add in some peak 4th Doctor, Romana during her professional horseriding outfit days, and minotaur creatures in some wicked KISS boots and you have yourself a recipe for an awesome bit of Doctor Who!

    Wowwee wow wow! Friends, before we get into PLANET OF FIRE, we have a ton of Who News to discuss because in the last two weeks we've had the reveal of the 14th Doctor, news that Tennant and Tate are returning for something to coincide with the 60th, and maybe we have a new companion cast? Anyway, we cover all that and then get into the introduction of Peri, the departure of Turlough, and the merciful (to the audience) death of Kamelion all while The Master is try to solve a teensy problem he has! That's right! We nearly get a new benchmark for bonkers with Planet of Fire!

    FOUR TO DOOMSDAY! If the story Kinda has been our standard for bonkers episodes for years, it only stands to reason that the episode right before it is pretty bonkers, too. Right?! Well, imagine our TARDIS team encountering a race of frog-esque people who can download your whole self into some circuitry, build an android replica of yourself, and put you to work on their massive ship...because their leader effectively wants to travel faster than light, sending himself back in time to meet...maybe himself?! Oh it's a wild ride with some interesting characterizations this time with Four to Doomsday!

    Legend of the Sea Devils has now come and gone like the Easter candy we probably had too much of over the weekend! But like that candy, did we get hopped up on the sugar of the Easter special or did we eventually crash afterward and wonder what the heck we were thinking? This story is a bit of a mixed bag for us. There's lots we liked, there's some we definitely didn't. So join us as we sort stuff out and also talk about that trailer for Jodie's final episode!

    ELDRAD MUST LIVE! Yes, this week we take a look at Sarah Jane's final story, The Hand of Fear. The Doctor and Sarah Jane find themselves in the middle of a quarry (not surprising) during an explosion (fairly surprising) that dislodges part of an ancient silicon-based lifeform (definitely surprising) that’s been buried in there for millions of years. Turns out this Thing impersonator from the Addams Family is called Eldrad. Eldrad likes long walks up to nuclear power stations, possessing humans to do its bidding, absorbing radiation over a nice dinner, and apparently trying to get revenge on its own people!

    EPISODE 250, PEOPLE! Who'd have ever thought we'd make it this far! This time around we watch The Krotons (which were designed to replace the Daleks as the Doctor's main enemy...you'll see why that didn't work out). The Doctor, Zoe, and Jamie land on a rather stinky planet. Mainly, that’s because of the sulfur content, but it’s also stinky because for over a thousand years the locals have been ruled over by The Krotons! See, the Krotons have a machine that, well, it needs brains! Kinda weird, we agree, but our TARDIS team shows up just in time to be part of an uprising amongst the locals that doesn’t quite go the way you’d expect. After a bit of a chemistry lesson, The Krotons are defeated and dissolved like the crystalline candy they sort of look like!
