Concluding our "Eleven Doctors" series, we chose not to beat a dead horse and review a story which has already been beaten to death by every other podcast. Nevertheless, the rules state we must present you with a podcast about an Eleventh Doctor story, thus we bring you "The Ring of Steel."
"The Ring of What?" you say? Well, once there were these things made out of paper, and the paper was usually sandwiched together with bits of carboard. On the papers were words, and when read in sequence these words tell a story. In fact, I'm told that many of the things we see on television or the movies originated as the these strange paper-word-story things. It just so happens that there are quite a number of these stories -- they're call books, by the way -- that have been published over the years by the BBC and one or two other companies that are actually Doctor Who stories. That's right, brand new original stories...like watching a version of the show but it's all on paper and you can recreate the details in your imagination.
However, we at The TARDIS Tavern do not have time for reading...who can concentrate long enough when you drink yourself to sleep every night anyway. But it just so happens that many of these stories have been released as audio books, the most recent being The Ring of Steel by Stephen Cole (and read by Arthur Darvill, who plays Rory). And that, my dears, is what we will be talking about today.
Oh, and we have some very good feedback as well, the best of which we're saving for last. Plus we announce the winner of our "Abominable Snowmen" contest. For Episode 27 we're having some more guest bartenders, so keep a vigilant ear out.
