Steven Schapansky (Radio Free Skaro, The Memory Cheats) and Erika Ensign (Verity!, The Incomparable, Total Party Kill, The Audio Guide to Babylon 5) are married Doctor Who fans (who also co-produce a fiction podcast for Uncanny Magazine). This is a podcast where they watch every Doctor Who story ever made, from start to finish. Each episode is recorded live on a red couch.

No, they have no “schedule”. They’re lazy. Want proof? Check out this fab listener-created spreadsheet of episode releases.

The Time Monster 5-6

Erika and Steven finish off perhaps the grooviest story in Doctor Who’s history with one of the longer episodes in the history of this podcast. There’s a lot to say! And not all of it is bad! (Though yes, some of it definitely is.)
