This week’s “last” is a goodbye to a companion we’re all quite fond of, Steven Taylor (not to be confused with Steven Tyler). Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Tansy as we marvel at the excellence of this story, the excellence of Dodo in it, the excellence of Steven’s reason for leaving the TARDIS, and the total lack of excellence in the general amount of fandom discussion surrounding this story. Why have we heard so little about this one?
Have you watched/read/listened to “The Savages”? Did you love it? Tell us in the comments!
As the end of 2016 nears, we’ve come to our final classic Doctor Who story of season one. Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Lynne as we talk about the season one finale (and whether it really deserves the term finale). Also, Lynne is in Chicago, Liz has some epic Happy Thing Flail, Deb uses the blessed term “fanthrpological”, and Erika mentions Lazy Doctor Who probably too many times.
What did you think of the Doctor’s first season, and of “Reign of Terror” in particular? Let us know in the comments!
Series 1 continues! Join Deb, Erika, and Katrina as we discuss a serious Slitheen, a crowded TARDIS, immature breakups, and more! “Boom Town” tends to be a bit of a forgotten episode, so we tried to give it its due.
How do you feel about this ep? Did you forget about it? Or do you find the personal drama exciting? Let us know in the comments!
As the title might imply, there’s once again dissension among the ranks. Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Lynne as we discuss whether “The Sensorites” is long and slow and boring or one of the most gripping, interesting, thought-provoking, and best William Hartnell-era stories ever committed to video.
Have you seen this story? Do you fall on the side of received fan wisdom? Or do you hasten to push play on the next episode every time you watch this fascinating story?
Our trip through classic season one is back to moving pictures! Join Deb, Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we cover Terry Nation’s eclectic 6-parter, “The Keys of Marinus”. There’s a lot to love and some to not-love. Listen and see who thinks which parts are which!
How do you feel about this story? Do you love its fairy-tale nature and the multiple adventures? Or do you think it drags? If the latter, which parts drag? We’re super-curious to know, so please tell us in the comments!
As promised, for our year of firsts, we’re taking you back to the very beginning! Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Tansy as we dive into the very very first Doctor Who story, “An Unearthly Child”. We’ve all seen the first episode more times than the latter three, but we have a surprising(?) amount of positivity about the rest of the story. Those cavemen aren’t half bad!
What do you think of the Doctor’s first onscreen outing? Let us know in the comments!
This week we battled the evil monster known as SkypeLag to bring you a podcast full of squee and surprise. Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Tansy as we get happy about Who-things, gush about McGann, and find representative aspects where we least expected them. We cover our reactions to “The Night of the Doctor” and our impressions of “Planet of Giants” as a representative story for the first Doctor. Perhaps not a common choice, but one that made for a rollicking discussion!
