The War Machines 2

Erika and Steven say a sad farewell to Dodo, whose send-off is kinda appropriately pants. Poor Dodo. But hey, there’a new companion duo ready and willing to take her place, starting in the very next scene!

The War Machines 1

The Savages 3-4

Erika pushes through a migraine so she and Steven can finish off Steven (Taylor)’s final story. They are So Sad to see him go. They also marvel at the crucial turning point this story presents for the Doctor as a character. “The Savages” is a hidden gem! (We hope!)

The Savages 2

Steven and Erika continue to mightily enjoy their anniversary weekend and Doctor Who from 1966. “The Savages” elicits some powerful observations, and we’re only halfway through!

Also, Erika is very sorry for burping during the podcast. :/

The Gunfighters 4

Steven and Erika finish “The Gunfighters” from 1966…4 days ago. This is the second podcast they’ve recorded about it. But it’s the only one that still exists.

The Gunfighters 2-3

Erika and Steven continue watching 1966’s “The Gunfighters”, and finally suss out what’s going on with Dodo. Oh yeah, and there’s whiskey involved.

The Gunfighters 1

Steven and Erika haven’t podcasted together since last year! But they’re back to classic Doctor Who with the musical, comic romp that is 1966’s “The Gunfighters”.

Bad Wolf/The Parting of the Ways

Erika and Steven complete their frolic through the 2005 series of Doctor Who. It’s a strong finish for RTD’s “first album”. So that means the foreseeable future will be all classic-Who all the time. Probably.

Doctor Who Day 2016

Steven and Erika are flying high…literally! This LDW ep is an experiment from 30,000 feet. We hope you are all having a wonderful Doctor Who Day!

The Celestial Toymaker 4

Erika and Steven wash their hands of the final episode of this Doctor Who serial from 1966. The boardgame thing is fun, but the “stupid ball” is back in play in a big way.
