Episode 228 – The Rings of Akhaten Things I Hate About You

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!

Episode 226 – Reflections In the Forest of the Night

This week we reflect on another story that wasn’t a hit right out of the gate. Join Deb, Katrina, Lizbeth, and Lynne as they discuss how they feel about “In the Forest of the Night” lo these several years on. We also get to hear Lynne’s pick for her “hindsight is 2020” episode to revisit.

Episode 225 – The Snowmen Revisited

This week we go waaaay back to the beginning! Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Tansy as we re-visit the story we reviewed on our very first (proper) podcast episode ever! Kat wasn’t able to join us for that, so we get her eight-year-old hot take.

Did you revisit “The Snowmen”? If so, what did you think? Drop us a tweet or let us know in the comments!

Erika’s Last Word – Episode 15

The Name of the Doctor StillThe Name of the Doctor

tl;dr WARNING: Yes, this piece is long.  No, I don’t care.  It’s the finale, after all!  I am full of squee, and I’m closing out this series with a bang!

GALLIFREY!!!!!  This is what I yelled (in my head, because I wasn’t watching it alone) right out of the gate.  Way to scoop me up and get me stoked!  I’m so glad I didn’t give in to my temptation to turn it off right there as I mentioned on the podcast.  But I’ve already squeed about seeing the past Doctors with my beloved Clara, so I shouldn’t take up any more space here with that.

Ok, a teeny bit more space:
