Ep 070: Shallow Breath

In this episode, we review the fifth episode of Series 10, Oxygen.
In our review, we talk about the messages in the story. How did we think racism, disability and capitalism were examined in the story? How well do we think the tension in the story held together, and what do we think of the consequences the Doctor now has to deal with going forward?

Ep 067: Face to Face

In this episode, we review the first two episodes of Series 10.

In our review of The Pilot we talk about how this series started. What do we think of Bill? Do we like the Doctor settling down in a university?

Ep 066: Dig Deep, Fly High

In this episode, we review the 3rd Doctor story The Green Death, and review the 8th Doctor’s first Big Finish audio, Storm Warning.

In our review of The Green Death we talk about this early 70s take on industry and environmentalism. How did we feel about Jo Grant’s departure? How did this evil AI compare to others? And just how many safety violations does it take to make Mikayla’s head explode?

For our Storm Warning review, we talk about the Doctor’s first audio adventure with his new companion, Charlie. How well do we think they get along, what about this alien society seems implausible, and overall, how does this first story of the 8th Doctor's long run hold up?
