Time for more favourites! Join Erika, Katrina, and Liz as we list our favourite Master stories from the history of Doctor Who — in one case, both on-screen and off! According to Liz, an alternate title for this episode could be “a podcast of betrayal”.

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”?

Extra! – Please Fill This Space

We don’t know about you, but we’ve been watching that space. And watching. And watching. In this sprightly Extra, Deb, Erika, and Kat talk about successful, and not so successful, Doctor Who marketing/teaser campaigns — what we thought worked well and what we thought was perhaps less than “iconic”.

Do you have a favorite Doctor Who promo campaign? Send us a tweet or let us know in the comments. Hey, at least it will give you something to think about while you’re watching that space.

208 – 7 Nation Army of Ghosts/Doomsday Tripper

Okay, this “7” is a stretch but we made it work. Join Deb, Lynne, and Tansy as we dissect the rollicking, emotional, and devastating story duo of “Army of Ghosts” and “Doomsday”.

We give credit to 8 y.o. RTD (the obvious creator of the Dalek v. Cyberman smackdown) while calling out the emotional manipulation he inflicted upon both Jackie and Rose. But we all come together in our adoration Yvonne Hartman’s confidence (and tailoring) and Mickey Smith’s swagger.

What are your favorite bits of this, literally, epic two-parter? Or was the emotional manipulation just a bit too much? Let us know what you think in the comments!
