 "The New Kid on the Block" (Episode #24)
25:25 | 17.4MB | 07.30.12
The Day of the Doctor, Pt. 2: Surprisingly Deepy
Episode #66 | 1:08:10 | 46.8MB
Alas, Eleven is gone, and with him 2013... and hurrah, Twelve is here, along with the new year! Celebrate 2014 with Sarah, Andrew, and special guest Nathan P Butler as we cover the second hour-long Day of the Doctor review epic, focusing on the portrayal of the Time War and the End of Time disconect, the Tenth Doctor's usage, the Moment, the War Doctor, who remembers what, reused gags, what the big deal about Zygons is, and screwdriver metaphors.

The Day of the Doctor, Pt. 1: Her Name Was Osgood 
Episode #65 | 59:07 | 40.6MB
Andrew and Sarah, along with a special guest, podcasting legend Nathan P. Butler, embark on an epic discussion covering Day of the Doctor from start to finish... to be continued New Years Day! This Christmas mashup covers the opening sequence, setting confusion, Moffat's treatment of characters vs. plotlines, the significance of the Lethbridge-Stewarts to New Who fans, Gallifreyan art mechanics, the threadbare Time War, the War Doctor's 'dramatic' introduction, and the Slitheen Theme playing a lot.

The OTHER Doctor....
Episode #64 | 30:14 | 20.7MB
It's a walk on the non-canon side as Andrew and Sarah take a look at that hero of space and time, Dr. Who! It's Peter Cushing's first big-screen adventure from the 60s, in a Police Box of his own! Plus, Andrew gets called out on contradicting Frodo.

David What's-His-Name For Doctor, 2017!
Episode #63 | 30:43 | 21.1MB
Oh no! Once again, Andrew and Sarah take on Tennant! Can they refrain from endless commentary on his era and the tenure of Russel T Davies? And with another dip into the Gap Year, will they continue the more-positive trend? Or return to the dismal bashing of episode 4? Plus female forms and the return of the crickets! (Note: When Andrew says 'The Tenth Doctor' repeatedly around the 3 minute mark, he means 'The Next Doctor')

Where All Da Time Lord Chicks At?
Episode #62 | 28:09 | 19.3MB | 9.2.13
It's time for Doctor Who: the Movie. No, not the McGann TV special. No, not the proposed 2012 project. Not even the Cushing films. But the first, most epic serial, so cinematic and sweeping in scope that it truly deserves the title- a story so amazing and vast that it could have played on the cinema screens. Yes, that's right... it's The Deadly Assassin. (Those crickets you hear chirping are not an indication of an audience bored to tears, we hope- just an artifact of having our windows open. Sorry!) Plus, a major battle of the sexes!

Day Of The Doctor,
Pt 3 - Lots of Star Wars Metaphors
Episode #67 | 1:11:51 | 65.8MB
We come to it at last- the third and final part of our Day of the Doctor epic, featuring much better audio quality than the first two!
