The Ice Warriors 6


Erika and Steven finish off Canada Day by finishing off “The Ice Warriors”. It had its ups and downs, but in the end they agree it’s a pretty good story.

Previous Episodes


The Ice Warriors 4-5


Steven and Erika keep trucking along though the ice. To her delight, Erika finds the voices are much much better when there are moving creatures to pair them with. Steven talks about Pink Floyd — and even manages to make it relevant.

The Ice Warriors 2-3

…ahem… TWO - THREE

Erika and Steven continue the Canada Day festivities with more Doctor Who. However, Erika isn’t feeling very festive, due to the vocal performances of some of the actors in this story. Why does it have to be a SIX-parter?

The Ice Warriors 1

…or should we say “THE ICE WARRIORS ONE” to match the opening credits?

We should definitely say Happy Canada Day! As per tradition, Steven and Erika spend part of their national holiday watching this show (created by a Canadian!) and podcasting about it.

There’s an awful lot to say about this episode! From incidental music to Victoria headcanon to a surprising amount of talk about Mark Gatiss’ stories, but there’s still time to squeeze in the official Canada Day-Doctor Who theme song!

The Abominable Snowmen 5-6

Erika and Steven finish off their first shelf of Doctor Who! Erika (amid coughing) develops some potential headcanon for Victoria’s character development. Summer colds are the worst.

The Abominable Snowmen 4

Steven and Erika continue their trek through the mountains. Erika continues to discover Victoria’s cleverness. Steven repeats himself. (It was bound to happen eventually. Please forgive him.)

The Abominable Snowmen 3

Erika and Steven continue unraveling the mysteries in the monastery, which is important because Victoria doesn’t like mysteries. (You go, girl! Solve that sh*t!)

Erika Ensign and Steven Schapansky


The Abominable Snowmen 2

Steven and Erika get back to the mountains (and argue about which mountains are better) for some more sweet Yeti action. There’s also some yammering about missing episodes, Twitch, royals, a local art installation, and a bunch of vagueness about forthcoming podcast projects.

The Abominable Snowmen 1

Erika and Steven are back at it and ready to celebrate the Victoria Day long weekend in style—1960s Doctor Who style, that is!

The Tomb of the Cybermen 1-4

Steven and Erika say hello from a Calgary hotel as they plow through the entirety of this iconic story, but perhaps not for the reason you think.

The Evil of the Daleks 6-7

Erika and Steven are back! And we’ve finished season 4 of Doctor Who. Since we’ve been gone so long and want to make up for it, we bring you our longest episode yet! (Ok, that’s not really why. We just have a LOT to say about this excellent and momentous story!) DW DVD menu.jpg
