Because the Fourth Doctor is awesome. Because we can't get enough of seeing Leela. Because stories involves witches and rubbery monsters in English mansions seem to call to us. It's our take on "Image of the Fendahl", in which the Doctor must fight an unspeakable horror from his home world. Or something like that.
If you'd like to explain to us what this story was about, you can email us at email@example.com or look us up on Facebook. Also, you can follow Sean on Twitter via @tardistavern (you can't follow Steve on Twitter because he's a poo-head and hasn't logged in for three years).

The 50th anniversary of Doctor Who brought us a literal trifecta for the fans on the big as well as the small screens. There was, obviously, "The Day of The Doctor", Peter Davison's The Fiveish Doctors, and the BBC docudrama An Adventure in Space and Time.
For those of you that haven't been listening to this podcast for the last year and a half, we both think An Adventure in Space and Time is pretty much required viewing for anyone with a pulse, let alone anyone who has the slightest bit of interest in Doctor Who. So please listen in as we talk about William Hartnell, Verity Lambert, Sydney Newman, and the genesis of the show we've dedicated so much time to.

We're back! Having required new livers as part of the recovery process from DFW Whofest (thank you, David and Marty), we're back to our regularly scheduled programming: giving you elongated reviews and inane discussion about Doctor Who episodes.
We've thrown the proverbial dart and this time it's landed on "Face of Evil", the Fourth Doctor story that marked Leela's debut. Are you Team Sevateem or Team Tesh? Find out which we are in our latest contribution to the world of Doctor Who podcastery.
Please send us feedback to email@example.com. We'll read it out loud in a voice of your choosing! Also look for us on Facebook and follow Sean on Twitter via @tardistavern.

It's all about last weekend's Whofest 2 in Irving, Texas (that's in the Dallas area for those of you that may not know), and panels, discussions, and things that we saw.
Overall, a good time was had by all, but the highlight was our interview with Terry Molloy on Friday night, in which we discussed his role as Davros, Big Finish, and My Pretty Pony, among other things. Take a listen and see how we did with our first official live interview!
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, look for us on Facebook, and follow Sean on Twitter via @tardistavern (although he hardly uses it anymore). Also, you can follow Terry Molloy via @tuckerspatch.

With just a week until Whofest 2, we thought we would sink our teeth into a story featuring the convention's guests, which makes "Revelation of the Daleks" a must-watch for this episode.
Also, Steve reads feedback and almost loses his voice and kills Sean from laughter in the process.
We are lonely. Please email us at email@example.com, check out our awesomely-busy Facebook page, and follow Sean on Twitter via @tardistavern.

We're still here! After some unplanned technical issues and a misunderstanding regarding calendering (hi, Sean!), we bring you the very latest in drunken Whovian goodness: a discussion abouut the Fifth Doctor story "Black Orchid". We're joined by Amanda Cole, who is also fluent in cosplay and convetions, as we pour some tea (read: booze) and discuss cricket...and murder!
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, look for us on Facebook, and follow Sean on Twitter via @tardistavern. You can also follow Amanda via @blundergirl.

A double scotch. Kittens. Sarah Jane Smith in a swimsuit. These are things we all love, and at least one of them is in "Death to Daleks", featuring the Third Doctor (whose body double is apparently Ludwig von Beethoven), Sarah Jane, and the most impotent Daleks ever.
We also take some time to talk about recovery after Galifrey One, the upcoming Whofest 2 in Dallas, and manage to plug our email address, which actually exists.
We're great fun on Facebook, so look for us there. Also, and we know nobody reads these shownotes, but you can email us at email@example.com and follow Sean on Twitter via @tardistavern.

With things settling back to normal around the Tavern (and we've redecorated - do you like it?), we decide to invite one of our perrenial favorite guest bartenders, Chris Burgess of Radio Free Skaro fame.
We asked Chris what his least five favorite episodes were and, after narrowing them down to the one that would involve the least amount of time in preparation, we watched and discussed "The Doctor's Daughter", featuring the Tenth Doctor, Donna, and Martha. Steve's Doctor Who Trivial Pursuit makes a comeback as well, proving once again that the writers of the questions strove to simultaneously insult our intelligence and make us feel like we know nothing.
Oh, a little sidenote...this was recorded immediately after the Superbowl, so all of us were already quite loaded before we hit the "Record" button. That being said, The TARDIS Tavern accepts no responsibility or liability for anything said by any of its guest bartenders.
Look for us on Facebook or send us email at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also follow Sean on Twitter via @tardistavern and Chris via @dubbayoo.

Safely deposited back in the tavern after almost a year of traveling abroad, Steve and Sean put their feet up and watch the classic episode "Destiny of the Daleks", also known as "The One Where Romana Regenerates Five Times".
That anonmoly aside, does the remaining 95% of the story stand the test of time? Is the return of Davros as thrilling as his first appearance? Were the contractors who built the fiberglass walls on Skaro drunk? And is it really such as surprise that the Movellans are androids? (Whoops, spoilers!) Listen in as we drunkenly discuss "Destiny of the Daleks" followed by a brief preview of Gallifrey One coming up in just a couple weeks.

Back to our regularly scheduled programing, we turn the clock back to the Troughton era, when the Second Doctor fought tirelessly alongside everyone's favorite companions of those years, Jamie and Zoe, and they faced a recognized foe, the Ice Warrior. Yes, it's a discussion of "The Seeds of Death", often confused with another story from years later "The Seeds of Doom", a fact of the tragedy of the random Doctor Who name generator.
With us on this journey to the moon by rocket is our good friend David Hooie. We talk a little bit about David's early years with the show and about his podcast, Hoo on Who, before he deposits us via his own TARDIS into a location yet to be disclosed. Stay tuned....
Look for us on Facebook, send us email vis firstname.lastname@example.org, and follow Sean on Twitter via @tardistavern. You can also follow David Hooie via @DavidHooie.
