Episode 153: Dawn of the Mawdryn Undead

After shitting all over Steven Moffat, we're back!  And we want to cleanse our palette with a classic Who story from the Davison era, "Mawdryn Undead".  There's exposed brains, time travel, disgusting bodies, Tegan, Nyssa, a guy with a crow on his head, and a traitorous redhead who talks to his hand.  Joining us is Phil from the Braving Babylon 5 podcast, who graciously stayed up into the wee hours in England to put up with our drunk asses.

In the name of all that is evil, give it a listen and find out if it goes down as smoothly as an undead alien gliding through a recreational spaceship, or if it's as ridiculous as mistaking any old charred corpse for Peter Davison.  Spoiler: opinions differ!  Tempers flare!  Garbo laughs!

Episode 152: Say Something Nice

After exploring the depths of "The Underwater Menace", our heroes jump ahead to the current era of Doctor Who to talk about Steve once coined "a generic Capaldi two-parter".  That's right, it's "Dark Water" and "Death in Heaven", the dramatic conclusion to one of the most beloved series of the program ever!

Why isn't Dr. Chang Chinese?  What's so dreadful about St. Paul's Cathedral?  Is Peter Capaldi sexier with the big hair or the short hair?  All these questions and more might be answered in our latest episode!

Episode 151: Nuzzing in zee Vorld

Time has, for the most part, come to the end of the DVD range of Doctor Who.  And it ended, some would say, not with a bang but with a whimper...with the recently found missing episode of "The Underwater" menace, the BBC was quick to capitalize on their new find by quickly releasing the story on DVD.  Is this the new "Enemy of the World"?  Or should "The Underwater Menace" be tossed into the Time Lash?

Listen in as we discuss preposterous fish people, sonic mining, the trouble with triple companions, and what may be one of our favorite villains of all time.

Episode 147: The Tragic Death of Mr. Fibuli

Our heroes focus again on the classic series, this time with a short visit to the "Key to Time" series with "The Pirate Planet", featuring the Fourth Doctor and Romana I.  Is this a Douglas Adams masterpiece?  Or just another trumped up swashbuckler?  Listen and find out!

Episode 146: The Singing Towers of Darrillium

Putting things back on track, our heroes find themselves immersed in the world of politics.  To distract themselves, they go back to the topic they planned on discussing when we last met them: "Silence in the Library" and "Forest of the Dead", written by Steven Moffat and featuring the Tenth Doctor and Donna.  And, since they really enjoy celebrating Christmas in February, they also dip their little piggies into "The Husbands of River Song".

Also, news and stuff that was probably covered more thoroughly by other podcasts weeks ago.

We like email and feedback, so send it to us at tardistavern@gmail.com.  Also look for us on Facebook.  All the kids are doing it.

Episode 144: The Tawdry Quirk Shop

As the rest of fandom recovers from the self-proclaimed "devastating" conclusion of Series Nine, our heroes turn the dial on the Wayback Machine just a couple years back to when bow ties were cool.  Thus begins our review of "Amy's Choice", featuring the Eleventh Doctor, Amy, and Rory.

Also, there might be Muppets.
