Description

-- SPOILER WARNING --
Spoilers for Ascension of the Cybermen and indeed all previous Doctor Who episodes!
----------------------------------------

Tim & Chaz are joined by Chaz's son Connor. We discuss the latest story, delve into the murky waters of toxic fandom, and touch on our different attitude to spoilers - all while standing at the gates of the Time War going "awww".

Regular Features

Your Cheatin' Memory -

Each episode we use therandomiser.net to choose a random Doctor Who story and see what we can recall about it. Then we go away and rewatch it to discuss next time.

This episode, we've just rewatched:

(That's in Judoon, courtesy of judoon.com, where you can translate it back to English if you want to know the episode we discussed.)

Ask Dr Schultz - A triumphant return for our scientific advisor.

Challenge! - Chaz sees the light and watches The Mutants.

Doctor by Doctor - we randomly select a Doctor and discuss their era.

Romp or Pomp? - A fast and curious attempt to quickly categorise randomly chosen stories into to two utterly arbitrary kinds... fun filled Romp versus circumstance-heavy Pomp.

We welcome your thoughts and feedback!
