Studies show that it has been a hell of a long time since we talked about a First Doctor story (see our episode on “The Time Meddler”) and even longer since it was an episode about a historical First Doctor story (go way back to one of the hokiest episodes ever of The TARDIS Tavern, in which we pan “The Gunfighters”).  So there was no time like the present to review “The Romans”, with the First Doctor, Ian, Barbara, and Vickie.

Of course, we can’t help but talk about the latest and last installment of Series Seven, “The Name of the Doctor”.  Oh, my.  Like oh, fucking my!

Look for us on Facebook, email us feedback at (we’ll read it out loud if we’re sober enough), and follow Sean on Twitter via @tardistavern.  I think Steve can be followed via @tardistaverntit.

We know.  Cybermen are soooo last week.  In fact, they’re just soooo 1988.  So much so that we take a look back at the show’s 25th anniversary special, “Silver Nemesis”, featuring the Seventh Doctor and Ace.  Let that sink in for a moment.  They celebrated ten years with “The Three Doctors” and twenty with “The Five Doctors”.  Should they have just stopped there?  You might be surprised at what we think.

Speaking of Cybermen, we also talk a little bit about “Nightmare in Silver”.  Our thoughts on “The Name of the Doctor” aren’t far away, either; you’ll just hear them a week or so after every other podcaster and blogger has aired their opinions.  You might be surprised at what we think.

Catch us on Facebook, email us goodies at, and follow Sean on Twitter via @tardistavern.  Oh, you can follow Steve via @tardistaverntit.  Right, Steve?  Steve?

Two things: (1) Mothers’ Day was just around the corner and (2) we haven’t talked about a Ninth Doctor story for quite a while.  So, without further ado, we present our discussion of Steven Moffat’s first story, “The Empty Child” and “The Doctor Dances”.

If it wasn’t for this story, the program (love it or hate it) would not be where it is today…and we wouldn’t have had Torchwood, either!  But does this hardy two-parter stand the test of time after eight years?  Listen and find out!  Also, just a little bit of blather about “The Crimson Horror” from Sean.

Find us on Facebook and send us groovy feedback to  Also feel free to follow Sean on Twitter via @tardistavern.

It’s the best episode ever!  Sean has regenerated and turned into one of his other co-hosts!  This time, it’s “Battlefield”, with the Seventh Doctor, Ace, and the Brigadier times two.

[This is the moment when the typist pontificates on the interesting aspects of the show, as few as they may bay.  However, on this particular occasion, the typist hasn’t heard or participated in the recording of said episode.  So enjoy anyways.  Not to sound like a bitch or anything.]

Email us at, “like” us on Facebook, follow Sean on Twitter via @tardistavern, Steve via @tardistaverntit (he never checks it), and Erik via @sjcaustenite.
