210 – Asylum of The Daleks’ Master Plan

This week Deb, Erika, Liz and Tansy revisit an oft maligned (by Deb) story — “The Daleks’ Master Plan”. There are a few disagreements as to pace, plot, story, Katarina… and while may not all agree on which companion actually clocks in as the official 7th companion in Doctor Who history, we do all agree that Sara Kingdom is a BAMF.

How do you feel about this “epic” adventure? Is it a rambling mess? A beloved Doctor Who romp or BOTH? And what is your preferred method for consuming this phantom of a story? Leave us a comment or send us a tweet and let us know how you feel about Bret, Sara, The Meddling Monk or any one of the other 1,183 plot points in “The Daleks’ Master Plan”?

Episode 131 – Steven, Leavin’

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!
