The Tenth Planet (1-4)

Steven and Erika are joined by a couch interloper! Annette Wierstra provides a slightly new-Whoish perspective on this, the origin of the Cybermen. We also chat about the series 10 finale and the trailer for the 2017 Christmas special.

It’s a truly momentous episode. We have completed the William Hartnell era, and the timing is perfect to tie in with the current series. Just…wow.

The Smugglers 4

Erika and Steven finish off 1966’s “The Smugglers”, go on quite a tangent about the characterization of the Doctor over the years, celebrate the naming of Jodie Whittaker as the 13th Doctor, and finish up by teasing our next episode that will be a little different. We also use this very episode of the podcast itself (in the future! — our future, your present) to coerce help from next episode’s special guest. We hope.

The Smugglers 3

Steven and Erika try to power through the last two eps of this Doctor Who story from 1966. Erika fights valiantly to stay awake and mostly succeeds. Blame the travel schedule more than the episode. It’s still fun Who!

The Smugglers 1-2

Erika and Steven watch some more reconstructed Doctor Who and squee mightily over the fabness of Ben and Polly.

87

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!

86

The War Machines 1

Steven and Erika jump right into the swingin’ 60s. Computers! Connecting! To each other! The Inferno night club! Sad sailors and sexy secretaries! This Doctor Who episode has it all.

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!)
