"Just Don't Listen, Rose Fans" (Episode #40)
Things get wibbly-wobbly as an Andrew and Sarah from the future return to jabber on about
an episode that hasn't been recorded yet, even as they remake it with the future knowledge they gained from the now-nonexistant original.
Plus, putting the End of the World on trial.
1:10:28 | 48.4MB | 12.3.12
Great weeping and mourning, for the great quest is at last over! Sarah and Andrew's 4-year journey through the entire Doctor Who canon
has come to a close. It isn't the end of the show, but it's the end of an era, and the shell-shocked duo sits down in the aftermarth
to sort through just how it feels...
34:07 |23.4MB | 11.26.12
'Record' as the end credits roll, Sarah and Andrew jump in with their high-energy, off-the-cuff impressions of the final entry in
their classic Who viewing, The Enemy Within! (A.k.a. The Paul McGann TV movie.) Heresy, murder, random bats- what more do you need
from an episode?
38:58 |26.7MB | 11.19.12
A continuation of the 'Time Travel in classic
Who' discussion, from the First Baker to McCoy!Plus scientific implausibility and the genocide of the Thals.
28:59 | 19.9MB | 11.12.12
Sarah and Andrew (mostly Andrew) discuss the use of Time Travel on Doctor Who- for a series about time travel,
how often do they actually use it, aside from the arrival at the start of each episode? Part 1 of 2...
28:50 | 19.81MB | 11.5.12
Sweet and Salty, British copyright, and far more as we give our 'Trial' format
a trial-run by putting the Empty Child and the Doctor Dances... on trial! (Is there really any doubt whether it'll be exonerated...?)
And we open the controversy can-'o-worms of the Russel T. Davies 'gay agenda'... on a Steven Moffat episode.
31:17 | 21.4MB | 10.29.12
Welcome one and all to the first Under the Miniscope Wholywed Game, where our two hosts will see just
how well they know each other in the most important realm of couple-compatibility... Doctor Who!
46:56 | 32.2MB | 10.22.12
The Seventh Doctor is welcomed with open arms by a good-natured roast of one of his less-stellar entries,
in which Sarah plays the prosecution and Andrew's attempts to mount a defense are stymied by his continual finding of more faults.
| 18.9MB | 10.15.12
In this rapid-fire Op-ed quickie, Andrew and Sarah dash off a brief discussion
about upward and downward trends- things that started out hot but wore out their welcome, and other things that made a bad impression,
but really redeemed themselves by the end.
15:21 | 10.5MB | 10.01.12
Lock up your sacred
cows- Sarah and Andrew are on the rampage again! In this first of two op-ed episodes, we examine the popularly held opinions of the
least-and-most-popular Doctors of the classic series- why we think they're so-held, and whether we think that's accurate. We'd love
to hear you weigh in, too- check it out!
32:42 | 22.4MB | 9.24.12
It's a show all about sonic
screwdrivers! And more petty bickering! An evaluation of each design! A discussion on whether the sonic has become a 'magic wand'
or overused plot device! And what do Star Wars' Boss Nass, Yosemite Sam, and Elmer Fud have in common? Come find out!
15.8MB | 9.17.12
This just in! Sarah and Andrew pre-empt THEMSELVES to deliver a fresh, topical
review of the new Matt Smith premiere, Asylum of the Daleks! We're clearly having a blast, and we hope you will, too! Come join us,
for Matt Smith, Autons, the Sarah Jane adventures, writing mysteries, romantic dialogue, both Romanas, bad Colin Baker impressions,
Andrew curses in other languages, reconciling Destiny of the Daleks, and whatever other rabit-trails we may delve into on this jam-packed
1:01:27 | 42.2MB | 9.10.12
An introduction to the Sixth Doctor! The
Rani! More on the Master (because you haven't had your fill of THAT lately...)! Lots of petty bickering! And... Ewoks?
19.6MB | 9.3.12
We go back to where it all began... again... and finally begrudgingly induct
Mr. "Same river twice" into our ranks of review. Plus debates on haughty vs hotty, Jagrafesh vs Jagrafess, and WAY too much speculation
of the lifecycle of Max.
37:18 | 25.6MB | 8.27.12
Controversy is sure to abound
as Sarah and Andrew discus Caves of Androzani- and take a poke at all of the Doctor Who sacred cows- Christopher Eccleston, the writing
of Russel T. Davies, Genesis of the Daleks' "Have I the right...?" - in this decidedly outspoken tribute to the handoff from Fifth
Doctor to Sixth!
29:07 | 20MB | 8.20.12
Yes, that's right- the youngster himself, Baker's illustrious
successor, Peter Davison enters the Under the Miniscope lineup as we discus a serial that's a kinda sequel. (Get it?) Yes, that's
right, Snakedance rears its serpentine hand, along with worldbuilding, and the physics of wrought-iron table legs. Don't worry- if
you don't like it, you can open your hand, and the podcast will slip through your fingers...

Sarah and Andrew sit
down to record the Anthony Ainley Master Special... whilst INTENDING to record an episode about the Keeper of Traken. With as much
as we covered, this may BE our actual 'Master Special' for the podcast- so even if you don't like Traken (and honestly, who does?),
check it out!
39:12 | 26.9MB | 7.23.12
Level-headed-Sarah and Andrew, the
Bringer of War, present their differing viewpoints on that Jon Pertwee classi- er, abominatio- er... serial, Planet of the Spiders.
Much much ranting and rage, plus Pertwee's shameless hussy and a discourse on unreasonable murderous second-in-commands.
24.9MB | 7.16.12
Andrew and Sarah review a lost classic which may have lost more than
most as they review Patrick Troughton's base-under-siege, The Web of Fear... as well as reviewing bases under siege in general, and
issuing a stirring directive to all of England!
23:55 | 16.4MB | 7.9.12
Join us for this here 20th episode as we done go and take us a look-see at that Hartnell historical, The Gunfighters! Now don't you
worry none- you'll get to hear that purty little ballad PLENTY this episode! Musicals, trainwrecks, and Dodo not being a dodo! Don't
miss it, now, y'hear?
31:41 | 21.7MB | 7.2.12
Whoa, deja vu! Didn't we cover this already...?
Well, yes and no. In this episode, Andrew and Sarah revisit the 'companion question'- who is a companion, and who is just a frequent
guest star? In the unusual eras of Pertwee's Earth Exile and the New Series and its specials... what does it take to join the hallowed
ranks? Who makes the cut, who doesn't, and why? Plus, a wretched monkey.
