So, my episode reviewing 'The Pilot' is finally here! Yes, there were some technical errors and issues (quite a few), as well as Life Stuff that got in the way, but I bested them and finally was able to pull it all together for you here today (albeit with a bit of a sore throat that makes my voice crack much like male puberty at times, but oh well, these things happen).

Anyway, so join me as I excitedly talk about our first proper introduction to Bill Potts, discuss shades of 'Shada', play around with some Jungian interpretations and other related chat about water and reflection imagery, empathize with young awkward queers, dance for disco androids, and try to contain my burning Professor fetish.

As always, glad to have you all aboard. Do enjoy the ride!

I'm back! Yes, another (unexpected) hiatus down and here I am again!

Yeah, as I say in my introduction, I've been really behind on podcasting these last few months due to dealing with some fairly heavy medical stuff, but, despite all that, I'm hoping to get back on the saddle and really determined to get this podcast whipped back into shape.

So, in the spirit of all of that, in this return episode, you'll find my belated review for the last Christmas special, 'The Return of Doctor Mysterio'. I just really wanted to get that one covered before my foray into S10 of the new series, so that I could feel 'caught up', per se. Now, I had honestly also hoped this episode would be out before the new Doctor Who episode aired (and recorded it before then, as you'll be able to tell when I talk about it coming up), but pesky technical issues and Life Stuff slowed things down a few days, so it is a teeny bit late (speaking of which, I had to use a temporary different recording set-up, so there were a few teeny sound issues, but probably not enough for anyone to really notice). Oh well.

Anyway, again in this episode is my long overdue review of the Christmas special, as well as talk about anything from my squee about the return of Rona Munro and the Mondasian Cybermen from the Classic series, to the upcoming Atlanta Doctor Who convention Wholanta, to Bill being our first incontrovertibly gay companion on the televised series (so, yeah, not including my beloved Izzy Sinclair from the DWM comics who was also a lesbian, of course), to my great love of the superhero and comics genre, to Nice Guys (tm) and Sexy Lamps, etc.

So, yeah, I hope you all will join me for my review and episode discussion. And, as always, glad to have you all aboard. Enjoy the ride!

On this belated episode, I indulge in some Andrew Cartmel love, I lament a bit about my current state of Moffat-Hate-Fatigue, I feel far too many feels discussing 'Husbands of River Song', I rant a bit about the show's portrayal of Rose and her relationship with the Doctor (contrasting it with River and the Doctor's relationship, natch), and I even embarrass myself quite a bit by uncharacteristically tacking on some small boopers/outtakes at the end of the show (despite my perfectionist side screaming in protest!).

So, I really do hope you all will join me for this episode and, as always, glad to have you all aboard. Enjoy the ride!

I've long heard tales from other podcasters of 'cursed' episodes that have either been lost to time or were just vast struggles to get out. So, I guess it was inevitable that I'd have one of those misfortunes myself. Yes, this episode had tons of stumbling blocks, almost too many to name, but its finally here (albeit about 2 months late!). I do hope that it is worth the wait!

Anyway, join me on this episode as I finally discuss the last three episodes of S9 -- 'Face the Raven', 'Heaven Sent', and 'Hell Bent' -- finally polishing off my thoughts on last year's Doctor Who stories. I do hope you all will join me and, as always, glad to have you all aboard. Enjoy the ride!

OMG, I'm back! Is anyone still out there? *crickets* Um, maybe not. Anyway, it's really good to be back, finally. I've had tons of Big Life Stuff pod-blocking me all year, but I think I'm now in a good place to get back aboard the good-ship Terminus. Admittedly I was a bit under the weather recording the episode, but I was just so determined to get a new episode done and dusted, I went forward with it anyway. Let it be known that many coughs were valiantly sacrificed on the cutting floor, though. So, that was definitely a challenge! Well, that and trying not to slip up and say 'Chinballs' instead of Chibnall, because REASONS.


Anyway, join me on this episode as I talk about my humble little podcast's plans for the year and then also my thoughts about the new companion (as)Bill, the 2017 Doctor Who television hiatus, Steven Moffat leaving as showrunner, and finally Chris Chibnall coming on board as showrunner in his stead. I hope you all will join me and, as always, glad to have you all aboard. Enjoy the ride!

I was typing this up for a friend who hadn't heard of the whole 50th Anniversary 'trailergate' thing, but I decided to put it here too to get it off my chest. I can't stop rolling my eyes at fandom over this.

I mean, seriously.

So, at the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary panel at ComicCon this past weekend, they showed the first 50th Anniversary Trailer. Now, right before showing it, Steven Moffat said that if they catch any leaks of it online afterward, they would stop having Doctor Who exclusives at ComicCon (apparently something similar was said at the Sherlock panel earlier in the con, but the audio had leaked within 20 minutes and so they were a bit more intense about it at this panel -- yes, he sounded slightly naggy, but he had to get the point across).

Now, as a result, tons and tons of people are pissed off at him, calling him a Nazi and tyrant and the like. Of course, I doubt it was up to him anyway. He was probably being ordered by the BBC to say what he did (because you know how tight-arsed the BBC can be about images, video, etc). But of course all the MOFFAT IS EVIL!! people have jumped on the bandwagon touting this as 'yet another reason he should be fired from Doctor Who'. Oh, and there are a bunch of entitlement brats going on about a) if it was at a con, we should be able to see it, dammit!! and/or b) that they're British and the show is British, so Americans shouldn't have the monopoly on the trailer.

In short, people are freaking the fuck out. OVER A TRAILER. That will probably be out to the public in the near future and not an ugly, shakey-cam version. I find it all a bit ridiculous honestly. Especially all the people mad at Moffat, because as I said, I sincerely doubt he really has anything to do with it (the man does not have that much power, people -- he's just another cog in the BBC machine!).

Oh, fandom.

So, there you go. Trailergate in all its 'glory'!

So, I finally got around to reading Steven Moffat's old short story 'Continuity Errors' and loved it so much that I wanted to recommend it to any of you that have not read it yourselves.

Here is a link to read it online: Continuity Errors by Steven Moffat

The story is from 1996's Decalog 3: Consequences and is about Seven, Benny, and poor Andrea, the Librarian. You may have heard about it already, as it's come up a few times in fandom recently in relation to the fact that it has a very similar conceit to 'A Christmas Carol' (i.e. where the Doctor rewrites a person's past to get something he wants in the future). When I found out about it, I knew that I had to read it. I'm really, really weak for explorations of such a darker aspect of the Doctor and, after 'A Christmas Carol,' I knew that Moffat could really do such a plot justice.

Plus, well, I'm also a sucker for Seven.

Anyway, as I said, I highly recommend it. It's scary and creepy, but also quite humorous at the same time (albeit in quite a dark way, in many aspects). It's also got some really great dialogue and an interestingly structured narrative. For example, I personally love all the subtle changes in the text (and, by extension, Andrea) as the story progresses. It was all very, very clever, IMO, and I look forward to catching more upon re-reads.

Here are some teeny-tiny excerpts for anyone curious (I picked my favorite bits about rewriting the past, a theme that is big in the current incarnation of the show):

How far would he go? If someone got in his way – someone he couldn’t influence by the normal means, someone who stood between him and his need to impose his will on the Universe – just how far would our heroic, benevolent Doctor be prepared to go?

+ + +

The Doctor is a time traveller. Never forget that because it is central to an understanding of what makes him so terribly dangerous. Most of us, in our tiny, individual ways, are involved in the writing of history. Only the Doctor is out there rewriting it.

+ + +

‘Sometimes, when the past gets tough to deal with, I go back and rewrite it. I change things.’ She [Benny] looked hard at Andrea. ‘The Doctor does that too. But with better equipment.’


Enjoy the fic! And definitely feel free to comment with your impressions on the story as well. I'd love to chat about it with someone!
