Having bid farewell to the late Chris Burgess, our heroes discover that Erika and Kat, both from Verity!, have taken up lives as jungle Amazons! (Stories of their four co-hosts being cannibalized may have been exaggerated.)
As we push aside the corpse of the late Radio Free Skaro co-host, we settle down with our two favorite Amazonians to discuss Robert Holmes’ “The Sun Makers”. And, we assure you, this has nothing to do with the fact that April 15 is just behind us.

When we left our heroes in Episode 107, they were being stalked in the woods (or is it a jungle?) by an unknown and definitely large beast. Their fears have been allayed, however, as the beast turns out to be none other than Chris Burgess of Radio Free Skaro.
Without further ado or pondering why so many Doctor Who podcasters coincidentally are on this island, the three of them travel back in time to the Hartnell era for a deep insightful discussion of “The Ark”, featuring the First Doctor, Steven, and Dodo.

Having escaped the hungry clutches of the cannibalistic John Branigan and his cohorts, our heroes catch their breath in the forest…however, is something large and dangerous hunting them? Have they (almost literally) jumped from the frying pan into the fire?
We take what precious time we have left to discuss “The Awakening”, that precocious story featuring the Fifth Doctor, Tegan, and Turlough. Also, much to the frustration of one cohost, we take a listen to the short story “Special Features”from Big Finish’s The Demons of Red Lodge and Other Stories.

It’s time once again to focus on something a little more current, and by “current” we mean something that has been released on DVD in the past 30 days (albeit televised in 1967). We turn our gravity telescopes to bear on “The Moonbase” the Second Doctor adventure featuring Ben, Polly, and (sort of) Jamie. It’s also notable in that it’s the second story, after “The Tenth Planet”, with the Cybermen.
Joining us for this ride 238,855 (that’s a fun fact, Google it!) is our friend John Branigan, formerly of The Cyber Testicle Podcast, although he’s now being syndicated on A Mostly Harmless Cutaway. We can’t tell you how much fun it is while we get drunk in the morning with a chap six time zones away.

Just when you thought your buoyant hosts were going to go the way of the Titanic, they make it to the shore of a deserted island to find an empty beach, a floatable portable bar, and…Doctor Phil Serna of the Adventures in Time, Space, and Music podcast!
What better time to relax, catch our breath, and talk about something important. You know, like “The Deadly Assassin”! So grab a pint of Gallifreyan ale and join the fun as we debate how many regenerations a Time Lord really has!

Cashing in on our recent good luck in winning a free cruise to South Africa from a Nigerian sweepstakes, Episode 104 is set on shipboard. Amidst sipping cocktails, laying by the pool, and playing shuffleboard, we set our sights on Christmas: specifically, what is regarded as one of the worst Christmas episodes ever in Doctor Who, “Voyage of the Damned”.
Will we be in the majority, panning this episode as a smear of crap in what was otherwise a decent year for the show? Or will we take pleasure in all of the Christmas carnage that Russell T. Davies serves up? Pour yourself a pina colada, listen, and find out!
Oh yeah, and we also manage to offend pretty much every minority group. But if you’re not over that after 103 episodes, then that’s your problem.

We hired a team of actuaries to research and tell us which of the Doctor’s incarnations’ episodes do we review the least often. The unanimous response was the Ninth Doctor. After Sean talked Steve off a windowsill after suggested “Aliens in London/World War III”, we settled on the one that started it all.
Thus, without further ado, we present our thoughts on 1980’s sitcoms with dead actors, followed by an in-depth discussion of “Rose”.
Don’t like us? Think we’re a couple of drunks that are too big for our britches? Then go listen to Radio Free Skaro and email us at tardistavern@gmail, like us on Facebook, or follow Sean on Twitter via @tardistavern. (Note for the noobs: the Facebook page gets a lot more action than the Twitter account.)

As you may have guessed already (because you listeners are so, so smart), in this episode we chat about what Doctor Who has brought us in 2013, the year of its 50th birthday.
The second half of Series Seven is discussed, as well as just a little bit about “The Day of the Doctor” (see Episode 100 for more on that), An Adventure in Space and Time and, of course, “The Time of the Doctor”. By the end there we’re pretty well into our cups and we forgot to address “The Web of Fear” and “The Enemy of the World”, but there was time for one little bit of feedback. Enjoy, mates, and looking forward to 2014!

Watching an "Adventure in Space and Time" got us hungry for smoking Cybermen, so we opened our freshly delivered packages from Amazon to watch and discuss "The Tenth Planet".
This is the one where Hartnell regenerates (oops, spoilers!) so keep your ears peeled for the sound of these old bodies saying what we think of it. Also, I don't like your hair. Also, some long-overdue feedback!

November 23, 2013. A day that Who fans will likely remember for the rest of their lives. We went to see The Day of the Doctor together, and then did a "live" episode at DFW Whofest, the Dallas convention that totally blew our minds and expectations. Plus, we were kind of sober when we recorded this one. So that's a first.
Plus...a CONTEST! Listen until the end and you can learn how to be two lucky listeners who can win a copy of The Day of the Doctor on DVD or Blu-Ray.
Honestly, a good time was had by all. Oh, and we're pretty much sober.
