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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Shout out goes to Anthony Perry for the end of show song Industrial Cyberdisco Remix.
