Episode 154 – Twice upon a Time of the Doctors

Merry Christmas, happy holidays, and season’s greetings to all! Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Lynne as we discuss the latest Doctor Who Christmas special–yet another regeneration episode. Who cried? Who didn’t? Who’s not ready to think about the 13th Doctor? Who wants to crash right into the new era? And what did we all think about the themes and execution of “Twice upon a Time”? There’s only one way t find out!

What did you think of this final send-off for so many of the on- and off-screen talent? Let us know in the comments!
