Longtime Doctor Who podcaster Chip Sudderth (Two-minute Time Lord) and essayist-podcaster Alyssa Franke (WhovianFeminism on Tumblr and Twitter) join forces for Doctor Who-related interviews, reviews and all the news that marked This Week in Time Travel.


“Think You Should Only/Write in Emoji”

Emojibots! Is Doctor Who riding a trend or is the trend already played out? Chip and Rachel review “Smile” and ponder how successful Doctor Who is at making topical references, from Beatles cameos to unfortunate dance moves. ALSO: Chip and Rachel discover the hard way that some news is not in fact news with the help of Radio Free Skaro’s Warren Frey.

Series 10, Rachael Stott and Paul Cornell

This Week in Time Travel launches a week late (thanks to Alyssa losing her voice) with a double-sized debut to make up for it!

Alyssa interviews the titanic artist of the Titan Comics Twelfth Doctor, Rachael Stott. Chip speaks to Paul Cornell, who is leaving writing other peoples’ characters behind including his beloved Doctor, but also has a powerful, personal novel on the shelves now in Chalk.
