A Destructoid community podcast, covering the long-running science-fiction series, Doctor Who. Each week we look at DW news and topics, as well as our story-by-story roundup of every DW serial, starting at the very beginning.
(We're open to having guests rotate in, especially since we're missing UK people who could bring in some extra perspective. Let us know if you're interested!)
This week we looked at the...unique...2-part serial The Edge of Destruction. Apparently, though, the technical glitches and memory loss that affected the TARDIS and crew in the story seemed to rub off on us. We had initially recorded a segment where we went over our favorite episodes of the new (2005) series, but unfortunately that, along with our original intro, were lost. So, we went back and recorded a replacement intro, as well as editing things around so we could end up having something close to a regular episode. The first "segment" is a somewhat random discussion about Doctor Who, starting from a question about who we'd like to play the Doctor in the future. Later, we move on to our discussion about The Edge of Destruction, in which we were just as bewildered and confused as Ian was when he tried to strangle the Doctor and Barbara!
