Continuing our "Ten Doctors" series, we turn our backs to the Hartnell era and plunge heads-first into "The Power of the Daleks," the first story with Patrick Troughton as the Second Doctor.
Unfortunately, as someone at the BBC years ago went on a drunken rampage and scrapped a number of reels, this story no longer exists on film. However, thanks to a legion of geeks who mastered the art of recording episodes with microphones for future playback, we have the luxury of listening to this little gem via the soundtrack available from BBC Radio.
In case you're wondering, it's pure coincidence that we recorded this on the evening that "Victory of the Daleks" premiered, as the two stories have some similarities but exists on opposite ends of the spectrum in regards of quality, if you ask me. So please enjoy this latest episode of The TARDIS Tavern and continue to send feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org, find us on Facebook, and join us on Twitter.
A big thanks goes to dArkpEon (from whomix.trilete.net) for the Doctor Who - In Diaboladalekium (Brown Legions) mix at the end of the show.

I have good news for those that can’t get enough of the TARDIS Tavern drunken goodness. Lately Sean and myself have been doing the guest co-host scene for other Doctor Who podcasts.
Sean recently did a gig over at the Hoo on Who podcast (Episode 21). David, Marty, and Sean review and discuss the classic Pertwee episode The Three Doctors. They go into detail on the North American DVD release and even discuss Gallifrey 21. David giving Sean a single potty break is one of many humorous moments during the show.
I recently poped up as gust co-host on The Doctor Who Podcast (Episode 5). Trev and Tom are both very gracious as we discuss the fan reaction to The Beast Below. While I wasn’t downing any vodka martinis during the 4:00 AM recording time I do go through multiple cups of coffee. I’m surprised at how coherent I sound so early in the morning. For a funny behind the scenes moment keep listening after the outro music.
It seems Sean and I are spreading out across different podcasts like a bad case of VD.

Since this is probably the biggest week in Doctor Who since the inception of this podcast (of course, we're like four months old, but who's counting?), we're celebrating by beginning our "Ten Doctors" marathon and by bringing you "The Gunfighters." Yeah, you're darn tootin'.*
Since neither of us have seen this story in a long, long time we rather overestimated the time we were going to spend talking about it, so please enjoy this light and frothy edition of The TARDIS Tavern.
We have one piece of feedback to share with you, and just a dollop of chatter regarding "The Eleventh Hour," which remains unseen as of this writing. You have no idea how we can appreciate the irony that although "The Gunfighters" remains fresh in our minds, we have yet to indulge in the event that is casung nerdgasms across the globe.
Next week: "The Power of the Daleks." And, yes, spoilers shall abound!
*Don't worry, we ditch the Western accents about five minutes in.
