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’s episode feels more reverent than most, which seems fitting, given the subject matter. Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Lynne as we have an almost NPR-style chat about what we enjoyed in this “love letter to Doctor Who.” We all enjoyed it to varying degrees, but as you might expect, some of us had wee quibbles with it. Generally very wee, though. Think of this ep as a mellow way to ease out of the giant (sometimes exhausting) squee-fest that these past few weeks have been.
Kat can’t turn around without someone talking/posting about Doctor Who!
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!
