Episode 15: The Arc of Infinity and Beyond!  (With 100% More Podshock!)

Following through on our fine tradition of having fellow podcasters bartend for us (tradition being, like twice so far), we are joined by Louis Trapani of Doctor Who: Podshock, who serves up a mean Long Island iced tea.

After generally meandering into the nerdery and the gushing that most fans exude when first meeting (thanks, Steve), we turn our double-sighted attention to "The Arc of Infinity," John Nathan-Turner's ubiquitous sequel to "The Three Doctors."

Will tempers flare amonngst the three of them as they disgaree on whether or not this is the best episode ever?  Are you happy to see me or is that an impulse laser in your hands?  And will Steve ever let Sean talk?  Find out now and download this little collector's item from the library of The TARDIS Tavern.

Sorry, Erik, no feedback this episode...but tune in next week for some very, very special feedback as we trip the light camptastic with "The Gunfighters."

What's that you say?  Did we get our facts wrong again?  Fuck!  Then let us know at tardistavern@gmail.com.  Also find us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.

When Size Does Matter

As Sean can tell you I’m not one for wearing a 20 ft long Doctor Who scarf in my everyday sober life.  I’ve always wanted to proudly show off my affection for the show but without looking like I just came from L.A.'s Comic Con.  Until recently…  While on my daily eBay search I ran across a knitter that specializes in making Tom Baker’s season 15 iconic scarf for everyday wear.  The scarf is a manageable 8 ft in length and 2 3/4 in wide.  Also, the color proportions are correctly measured down to size.

While I have no financial gain from endorsing this product, I wanted to share my enthusiasm about the talent of this knitter.  You can check her out on eBay under the user ID: fillyjonk55

I also understand that she is working on a season 18 mini scarf and is available for custom work too.

Episode 14: The Keeper of Traken and its Big Finish Love Child (Now with More Bathroom Humor!)

Putting Gallifrey 21 and would could have and couldn't have happened behind us, we go back to our rumdum duties of reviewing Doctor Who stories.  In this poop-smothered episode we examine "The Keeper of Traken" and its Big Finish sequel/prequel "Primevil."

"The Keeper of Traken" ranked 70th in Doctor Who Magazine's "Mighty 200" poll, but is a story revolving around a society that functions merely because people are terribly nice to each other worth breaking the bank to satisfy the BBC's costume budget?

"Primevil," featuring the Fifth Doctor and Nyssa and taking place 3,000 years prior to the events of "Keeper," tries to settle the age-old debate of whether blind faith and religion will ever win out over logic and reason.  Perhaps fortunately, that's the deepest insight that you'll find on this subject even after listening to the episode.

We also have our usual battery of feedback and a huge dollop of Traken bathroom humor.

Please send feeback, ransom notes, and PayPal transactions to Sean at tardistavern@gmail.com.  Also follow us on Twitter and befriend us on the Book of Face!

A big thanks goes to Angel Mendez (from whomix.trilete.net) for the Who Rocks The Party That Rocks The Tardis mix at the end of the show.

Episode 13: A Look Back at Gallifrey 21

Steve arrives to pick Sean up from the airport after Gallifrey 21, and they spend some time in the airport bar looking back at the weekend.  There are some regrets, high points, drunk points, and new friends spoken of fondly.  We also relish in the feedback and, prompted by a friend, chat a bit about the show's future and what will ever happen if the Doctor runs out of regenerations.  (Like as if!)

Stay tuned week after next when we review "The Keeper of Traken" as well as the Big Finish prequel, Primevil. 

As always, please send feedback and complaints about Steve's petulant comments to tardistavern@gmail.com.  Feedback makes us feel validated after we look at our download figures.

Special acknowledgment goes to Eaglestriker (from whomix.trilete.net) for the Dark Fairytale mix at the end of the show.
