This time we take an interesting turn, with a review of “The Web of Fear”, featuring one of our favorites, Patrick Troughton as the Second Doctor.
Or do we? We did, after all, record on December 21, 2012…are you still around to hear this?
(Warning: Chicanery and spoilers abound!)
Email us love letters to firstname.lastname@example.org, catch us on Facebook, or follow Sean on Twitter via @tardistavern. (Fun Fact: You can follow Steve via @tardistaverntit, but he hasn’t sent a tweet since March of 2012!)

We haven’t talked about Big Finish for a while now, so it was time to recruit Doctor Who podcasting’s foremost expert on Big Finish audio plays, John Brannigan of Cyber Testicle and Radio Rassilon fame, to drink and talk about Peri and the Piscon Paradox, an edition of Big Finish’s Companion Chronicles range by Nev Fountain and featuring – you guessed it! – Nicola Bryant as Peri.
There’s some talk about the story, some talk about Nicola Bryant and our inability to revoke the restraining order, and a little bit of talk about the current series that might just make you put your thumb on your chin and go “Hmmm.”
Insert the usual crap here. Facebook. Email. Twitter via @tardistavern and @tardistaverntit, plus catch John via @digspinach (hehe, it rhymes with “Big Finish”).

For all of our listeners who happen to be Farscape fans I would like to direct you to the Omega Podcast’s recent interview with Virginia Hey (Zhaan). Wes, co-host of the Omega Podcast, knew of my love for this non-Doctor Who program and invited me to ride side-saddle during the interview. We both asked the lovely Ms. Hey questions about her time on Farscape and her future projects.

Fresh off of the first half of Series Seven, we just couldn’t get enough of the Eleventh Doctor. At the behest of our friend Erik from The Doctor Who Book Club Podcast, we watched and discussed “The Big Bang” and “The Pandorica Opens” with him. For those of you that listen to the very best in Doctor Who podcasting, you may know that Sean and Steve appeared on A Mostly Harmless Cutaway with our other friends Eric and Josh when these episodes first aired. Have our opinions changed after viewing it again. Is Erik alone in thinking this two-parter is the bee’s knees?
As usual, the cocktails flowed freely (at least for two of us, ahem) and we saw a mutual friend of the podcast, Erika (whom you may recall from our “Pertwee Extravaganza” not long ago), and asked her to join the fray. The result is an hour and 47 minutes of insightful philosophical discussion on the story. Also, we get really drunk.
Join us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter via @tardistavern and @tardistaverntit. Feel free to follow this episode’s guests, Erik and Erika, via @sjcaustenite and @hollygodarkly, respectfully. Oh, and we’ll read your feedback on the show if we’re not too drunk, so feel free to email us at email@example.com.
Shout out goes to Anthony Perry for the end of show song Industrial Cyberdisco Remix.

We’re back, we’re drunk, and we have opinions about the latest episodes. Just when you thought it was safe to download another Doctor Who podcast, we’re here! Listen to find out what we thought of “A Town Called Mercy”, “The Power of Three”, and “The Angels Take Manhattan”. We like to keep things spoiler-free, but here’s a preview: the two of us only really agree on one of the three!
So pour yourself a glass of wine, beer, scotch, vodka, or whatever and sit back and relax as we talk about stuff a whole month after every Doctor Who podcast has already covered.
Send us hate mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, follow Sean on Twitter via @tardistavern, Steve via @tardistaverntit, and of course check out our growing community on Facebook!
Special mention goes to Beyond The Epilogue for the end of show song Dr Who (Metal Theme).

We’re jumping on the Doctor Who podcast bandwagon and taking a peek at “Asylum of the Daleks” and “Dinosaurs on a Spaceship”. Will the bile flow as usual towards the Moff and his masturbatory story arcs? Or will we embrace the evil? Will we enjoy what is clearly meant as this season’s “throw away” episode? Listen and find out! Free pie and punch await for the first ten listeners (in other words, all of you).
Send us feedback at email@example.com, follow Sean on Twitter via @tardistavern and Steve via @tardistaverntit. Plus, hunt us down on Facebook…we want more followers than all the other Doctor Who podcasts combined!
A special thanks goes to monkeyinaspasm for the end of show song “This Is Gallifrey”. For more info on this mix please visit: http://whomix.windbubbles.net/remix/438

With Season (er...I mean SERIES) Seven just a couple weeks away, we thought it was time to put our collective heads together with David and Marty from Hoo on Who and talk about our predictions and hopes for the upcoming series.
Seeing that most of the time all four of us tend to natter on about Classic Who, we thought that you, the good listeners, would like to hear what we think about the current series (aside from Sean's incessant bile regarding the Moff).
And after that...Sean and Steve jump into Dave and Marty's TARDIS and travel to the titanium bunker for a very, very special crossover episode of Hoo on Who. History is made as we're actually drunker on that podcast than our own!
Facebook, firstname.lastname@example.org, blah blah blah. But follow us on Twitter: Sean via @tardistavern, Steve via @tardistaverntit, David via @davidhooie , and Marty via @mhooie.

Steve has finally joined us from his (turns out) travels from not-so-far-abroad with tales of suspense and intrigue. For the first time since we’d like to remember, it’s just the two of your usual humble hosts for this episode…and we all hope, of course, that Steve stays on for quite a while to come.
Carrying on from Episode 65, in which we discussed “Kinda”, we’ve decided to let things run their natural course and review its sequel, “Snakedance”, featuring the Fifth Doctor, Nyssa, and Tegan. Did these reviewers fall under Martin Clunes’ devilish charm? Has one of them been influenced a bit too much by the Mara? Can we think of more useless waffling to make this introduction longer? Listen and find out!
Oh yeah, there’s also an interview…stay tuned for more!
Catch us on Facebook, or follow Sean on Twitter via @tardistavern and Steve via @tardistaverntit (he never checks it, so leave him all the nasty remarks you like!). Also, email us at email@example.com with compliments about the podcast and complaints about Steve’s lewd behavior (don’t worry, Nicola, the restraining order has been signed).
Special thanks goes to the talented Curt Watkins with his end of show song CyphaRemix. This mix and many more can be found at Who Mix (http://whomix.trilete.net/?wmid=music).

Whilst Steve remains in an undisclosed location fighting crime and making the world a better place, Sean holds down the fort still, this time with our old friend Erika and Steven from Radio Free Skaro. Our first idea was to review "The Idiot's Lantern" in view of the diamond jubilee, then we realized this wouldn't be released until July, so you know, fuck that.
Given free reign to choose a topic, as our guests often do, Erika selected "The King's Demons", much to the chagrin of Steven and the relief of Sean who realized he only had to watch two episodes. Short and sweet? Or does this story just fester like a tiny deer turd on the forest floor. Listen and find out!
Facebook, blah blah blah, firstname.lastname@example.org, blah blah blah, @tardistavern. Also follow Erika on Twitter via @HollyGoDarkly and Steven via @legopolis, for the zero of you who have a Twitter account and don't follow them already.

With Steve collecting ice samples in Antarctica, we have more chances to have new and exciting people at the Tavern. We're happy and proud to present (Professor) Dave and Elizabeth, co-hosts of not one but two podcasts: Professor Dave's Ark in Space and The DWO Whocast.
And what better story to chat about than "The Ark in Space"? Fiberglass Wirrn, green bubble wrap that begs to be popped, and claustrophobia! What else can you possibly ask for?
As usual, feel free to send us bitch mail at email@example.com and also join us on Facebook (we need more followers!). Follow Sean on Twitter via @tardistavern, Steve via @tardistaverntit, Dave via @davidkeep1964, and Elizabeth via @lizaanne42.
