Do the Hand-Wavy Thing

With this season of “Doctor Who” completed, it’s time to break down the start of Peter Capaldi’s tenure as our favorite Time Lord. Is he a good man or a cosmic hobo? Why are hugs untrustworthy? Why does Jason keep watching episodes in hotel rooms? These questions and many others are asked, and some of them are even answered.

Jason Snell with Erika Ensign, Glenn Fleishman, Dan Moren and David J. Loehr
