The Evil of the Daleks 5

Steven convinces Erika to (try to) stay up for one more episode of Doctor Who. Perhaps not the wisest idea, as we had to stop and rewind twice to catch poor Erika up after drifting off. Birthdays, man. Whaddaya gonna do?

The Evil of the Daleks 3-4

Erika and Steven celebrate Steven’s birthday in the most appropriate way possible—watching Doctor Who and then talking about it on a podcast. And there’s quite a lot to dig into in these two episodes.

Steven and Erika didn’t want to stop at just one Doctor Who episode tonight. So on we go (or back we go) to 1866!

The Evil of the Daleks 1

Erika and Steven dive into another unfamiliar-to-Erika Doctor Who story, which delights her to no end. Mystery and clues and detecting and Daleks—what more could you ask for? NONE MORE, that’s what.

112

The Faceless Ones 4-6

Steven and Erika finish off “The Faceless Ones” (and thus, Ben and Polly’s tenure on Doctor Who) in one fell swoop. It may not be the best goodbye, but at least they get one—and it’s after a delightful story, so all in all, could be worse.

111

The Faceless Ones 2-3

Erika and Steven watch a couple more exciting-and-“new” episodes of Doctor Who. The second Doctor is very second Doctorey! Jamie and the Doctor start pairing off! Not enough Polly and Ben! And, most important of all, a truly, truly terrible hat.

The Faceless Ones 1

Steven and Erika watch the closest thing Erika has found to truly new-to-her Who yet. With virtually no knowledge of what’s to come, this story takes on an extra layer of excitement!

109

The Macra Terror 1-4

Erika and Steven ring out 2017 ON THE PODCAST! What better way to spend the dying hours of a year than with a delightful Doctor Who story about giant, authoritarian crabs? We couldn’t think of one. So here we are.

The Moonbase 4

Steven and Erika finish off 1967’s “The Moonbase” and chat a bit about Cyber-continuity. Erika also has headcanon regarding coffee trays in space.

107

The Moonbase 3

Erika and Steven celebrate Boxing Day with some more of “The Moonbase”. THIS is where Polly’s awesomeness comes to the fore! And Erika remembers to say some stuff she forgot last time. Better late than never!

106

The Moonbase 2

Steven and Erika roll right along into episode 2 because Erika doesn’t want to have to wait any longer to see real moving pictures—and moving sets! Not to mention a buncha sweet “science” and delicious technobabble!
