Well, we've been saying for a while that we've wanted to watch that other Peter Cushing Dr. Who film and, friends, that time is now! DALEKS' INVASION EARTH 2150 A.D. (note the lack of articles and prepositions, please). This is a fun ride! For as goofy and weird as these Dr. Who movies were, there's a lot of action, some incredible stunts, and (spo…
 
Well, friends, we've all had a week to rewatch and process our feelings about The Power of The Doctor (as well as all the news that dropped right after that aired)! This time we're going to spend quite a bit looking at this adventure, what it means to us, how well it caps off the Chibnall era & Jodie's run, and also talk a bit about what the future…
 
Well, folks, we made it. Three months worth of looking at and exploring the Hellier documentary and the case surrounding it has brought us here. This month, we look at the last half of Season 2: from The Altar through Night of Pan. If things had been weird before, they ramp up even more as we get blue star-ry eyed because things keep falling in our…
 
We're back, friends! Thanks for waiting that extra week! Totally appreciated. This time around we look at Asylum of the Daleks in which Amy & Rory are on the rocks, The Doctor is somehow both the predator of the Daleks & their temporary savior, and we meet Oswin who's currently working on her own series for Food Network, but it's not going so well.…
 
This month we reach the halfway point in our three-part look at the Hellier case (so far!). In the first half of the second season, we grapple with a less linear storytelling technique as we follow the team through the research and experiences they had between wrapping filming on season one and actually releasing season one! If you thought they wer…
 
LONDON 1984! Apparently a bleak hellscape in which the Daleks have a team of mercenary human clones (with helmets we're surprised didn't become a marketing opportunity) working to unearth Davros while also infiltrating various areas of human culture. See, there's a lot happening in Resurrection of the Daleks, but instead of anything getting resurre…
 
Well, this time we finally can mark Season 18 off our checklist (because we reviewed Logopolis a while ago...go check it out) with The Keeper of Traken! If reviewing almost a whole season in one stretch has shown us anything, it's that this season was fraught with issues. But they still put out some good stories (and ultimately gave Tom a satisfyin…
 
Our fellow weirdos, we have arrived!! And a day early, too! After months of preparation and laying out much of the background information needed to comprehend events, we're finally starting our review of Hellier! In this first part (of three) we look at the first five parts (so, all of Season 1). We dive into the aspects of the case that resonated …
 
This time we round out the E-Space Trilogy and nearly all of Season 18 with Warrior's Gate! While we're not over the moon about this particular story, there are definitely reasons why this one suffered a bit during production. We can see where they were headed, but they don't quite get there. Plus, we really wish Romana & K9 got more of a goodbye t…
 
State of Decay may seem like another chance for the BBC to pull out its Shakespearean era costumes and give them some exercise, but the story (a Terrence Dicks classic) has a rich tapestry behind it that not only expands Gallifreyan lore, but also gives justification for the tropey vampire acting in this story! I mean, a race of ancient giant vampi…
 
Our #RoadToHellier has reached it's last stop before we get to town! This month, we're looking at the various methods of communication that you'll see employed in the documentary, plus a little extra we just find interesting. From the Estes Method to the God Helmet to the Frank's Box and back again, we're exploring the hows and some of the whys beh…
 
Well, they can't all be stellar, but we always try to find the elements we like best in a Doctor Who story. That's the case with the opener to the E-Space Trilogy, Full Circle! Not only are we introduced to Adric, but we meet his brother (who definitely has some Oasis vibes), we peruse some binders, and we kind of wonder what tastes so odd in this …
 
While trying to repair K9, The Doctor and Romana find themselves in a time loop set up by an evil cactus named Meglos who has apparently inhabited the body of poor Nigel from Accounting and has a crazy plan to pretend to be the Doctor in order to steal a geometric shape of extreme power and, you know, rule the universe or some such craziness. Can t…
 
Up to now, we hadn't done any stories from Season 18 shy of Logopolis and we were missing out! This time we look at The Leisure Hive and while it starts with a bit of a slow-burn murder mystery it soon cranks up the bonkers with some of the greatest cliffhangers we've ever seen, a completely WTF ending, and a race of aliens who die when they've los…
 
WE ARE READY TO TRANSMIT! WE ARE READY TO TRANSMIT! This month our #RoadtoHellier pulls off to the side of the road to listen in to the Subspace Radio Network as we talk about the late Rev. Robert Short and his experiences channeling the Space Intelligence Korton! As wild as the story may seem, we do recognize that similar elements of Short's story…
 
Fourteen years ago today! Midnight premiered and gave us an episode that, at the time, we weren't all that impressed by. And now, in 2022, we revisit Midnight and are pleasantly surprised to say that we were totally wrong with our initial impressions back in 2008. Midnight is really good and, frankly, the paranoia and mob mentality hits a little st…
 
We can’t properly navigate the #RoadtoHellier without taking a left at Exit 93 and looping our way into the underground. Deros, Teros, a quick pass through downtown Lemuria (be sure to check out the famous Rock Shop) to find ourselves in some serious liminal spaces. Whether Shaver was really whisked away to an underground wonderland where he became…
 
THE NIMON BE PRAISED! It's a new episode of Podcastica!! That's right, this time we get an absolute masterclass in overacting from Soldeed as he works to bring about the Second Skonnos Empire all while being absolutely played by the Nimon who are just looking for a new planet to invade. Add in some peak 4th Doctor, Romana during her professional ho…
 
Wowwee wow wow! Friends, before we get into PLANET OF FIRE, we have a ton of Who News to discuss because in the last two weeks we've had the reveal of the 14th Doctor, news that Tennant and Tate are returning for something to coincide with the 60th, and maybe we have a new companion cast? Anyway, we cover all that and then get into the introduction…
 
FOUR TO DOOMSDAY! If the story Kinda has been our standard for bonkers episodes for years, it only stands to reason that the episode right before it is pretty bonkers, too. Right?! Well, imagine our TARDIS team encountering a race of frog-esque people who can download your whole self into some circuitry, build an android replica of yourself, and pu…
 
MOTHMAN! He's become the poster child for weirdness these days, but as part of our #RoadToHellier series, we take a look at the massive flap in Point Pleasant, West Virginia between 1966 and 1967. It becomes our launching point for a greater discussion of what the phenomena might be and what the purpose could be for 13 months of panicked fervor in …
 
Legend of the Sea Devils has now come and gone like the Easter candy we probably had too much of over the weekend! But like that candy, did we get hopped up on the sugar of the Easter special or did we eventually crash afterward and wonder what the heck we were thinking? This story is a bit of a mixed bag for us. There's lots we liked, there's some…
 
ELDRAD MUST LIVE! Yes, this week we take a look at Sarah Jane's final story, The Hand of Fear. The Doctor and Sarah Jane find themselves in the middle of a quarry (not surprising) during an explosion (fairly surprising) that dislodges part of an ancient silicon-based lifeform (definitely surprising) that’s been buried in there for millions of years…
 
On the evening of November 2nd 1966, Woodrow Derenberger was driving home from his job selling stereos and repairing sewing machines when he was passed by and then stopped by a UFO. The person who stepped forth from that craft communicated telepathically and introduced himself as “Cold”. What proceeded to happen from that point forward is one of th…
 
EPISODE 250, PEOPLE! Who'd have ever thought we'd make it this far! This time around we watch The Krotons (which were designed to replace the Daleks as the Doctor's main enemy...you'll see why that didn't work out). The Doctor, Zoe, and Jamie land on a rather stinky planet. Mainly, that’s because of the sulfur content, but it’s also stinky because …
 
With thanks (as always) to Mike Solko, we have our post-Gally review recommendation! 1963: Fanfare for The Common Men! An entire audio drama created from a small reference to a fictional band during the First Doctor's era! It's a solid story and one littered with Beatles references (and one glorious conspiracy theory) for those of you who love to l…
 
Yes, friends, we have been talking about reviewing The Web of Fear since before Gallifrey One this year, we were going to talk about it during our Gally coverage, but stars aligned such that we're finally now getting to it. And that's for the best because it's a story that deserves our full attention. We have the return of Professor Travers and the…
 
This month our #RoadtoHellier officially kicks off with a look at the Men in Black! These shadowy visitors have been around seemingly as long as the modern era of UFOlogy (perhaps longer, by some accounts)! But who are they? Government agents out to discredit witnesses? A secret government operating outside our own? Could they be, as Keel suggests,…
 
Podcastica's Animation Domination block continues with the First Doctor adventure Galaxy 4! While the story in and of itself doesn't exactly grip us--Taylor in fact calls this the least scary Doctor Who story ever--we are certainly entertained by the Chumblies, are impressed by a female-dominated cast (if only fewer of them were villains), and we f…
 
The Loveland Frogman! Yes, folks, strange things were definitely afoot in 1955! The same year that brought us the Kelly-Hopkinsville goblins also brought us somewhat similar series of encounters in Loveland, Ohio (right next to the Little Miami River, no less). What was the Frogman? Was he really all that froggy? Why was he seen again in 1972 and d…
 
Podcastica's Animation Domination is off to a very strong start with EVIL OF THE DALEKS! The Season 4 finale was originally supposed to be the end of the Daleks in Doctor Who (but we all know how that actually turned out), so it's chock full of fisticuffs, sword fighting, and (by the time we get to the last couple episodes) explosions galore! Plus,…
 
Heeeey we're doing the thing! I'm going to be honest with you, I am writing the description of the episode a couple days after having edited it and can pretty much only remember that we had a ton of fun doing MadLibs again. We talk about a lot of other things, as we always do, but I done fucked up, alright? Note to self: Always write the descriptio…
 
Friends! 2022 has already given us this little gem of an episode! That's right, we loved Eve of the Daleks! Though we have one minor nitpick, we were delighted by what Team TARDIS was able to do with a small cast, an enclosed set, and the old time loop trope! We got explosions, emotions, action, and the confirmation of the Thasmin Agenda! Let's gra…
 
The Future! That's right, friends, we are all interested in the future because that's where you and I are going to spend the rest of our lives! That famous line by The Amazing Criswell permeates our first episode of 2022! And what does the future hold? We're not sure, but we make some predictions and share listener predictions for the new year. We …
 
Our six-week long rollercoaster of a story has led us to this! The Vanquishers! Does it stick the landing? Well, we have a long discussion on expectations and how excited speculation can maybe lead to unrealistic expectations. We liked the episode, don't get us wrong, but we have to wonder if the original 8 episode season order would have served th…
 
Regardless of your thoughts about Bob Lazar's story of working at a secretive location inside of Area 51 (S-4), his influence on the pop culture of UFOlogy in undeniable. This month, we take a look at Bob Lazar's story because there's just enough there to make it believable and simultaneously just enough there to make it unbelievable. Seb identifie…
 
We're back! We missed you! Did you change your hair while we were on hiatus because it looks GREAT! In this episode we catch up a little, but not as much as you may expect because we had ACTUALLY done that the week before in an episode that was eaten and cannot be released. But, hey, look, we talk about our favorite fruits so everything is all good…
 
Folks, we are barrelling toward the finale for Doctor Who Flux! Our penultimate episode, Survivors of the Flux gives us lots to chew on. We get a deep download of Division lore, a twisted history of UNIT, and our very own Indiana Jones-like adventures (complete with an amazing hermit)! We're still loving this season, but we're also really hoping it…
 
Sometimes there's an advantage to recording a day later that we normally do, especially when that day is Doctor Who's 58th anniversary!We dive into Village of the Angels, but we also have lots of news that dropped in honor of Doctor Who Day! And this episode just blew us out of the water! Possibly the second greatest Weeping Angel story ever. There…
 
Like a solid mythology episode of The X Files, "Once, Upon Time" gives Doctor Who fans some answers, a ton of speculation, and even more questions! This season continues to fire on all cylinders and if you were confused by the disjointed time aspect of the episode and the whole "we're hiding this character from the past and just making them look li…
 
Having seemingly survived the Flux, The Doctor, Yaz, and Dan are dropped in the Crimean War where the British are battling the Sontarans! Yep, they're taking advantage of the Flux to conquer Earth across time. Meanwhile, on the Planet Time, not all is well. Time seems to be sentient and the mechanisms in place to make it behave are in need of repai…
 
Doctor Who is back, baby! And hoo boy do they come in swinging! There is so much happening in The Halloween Apocalypse that we think we easily could have filled a couple podcast episodes about it. We are definitely going to need a bigger flowchart (or a conspiracy board for Taylor...he has some speculation about what's going on)! Either way, join u…
 
In May of 1973, a most peculiar thing happened in Sandown on the Isle of Wight. A girl, known only to us as Fay, and a boy, whose name we never learn, met a seven foot tall creature that for all intents and purposes looked like a poorly crafted clown. He communicated in an odd syntax at times and also gave cryptic answers. Despite having an encount…
 
Well, we could have spent most of the episode discussing news of our impending 13th season of Doctor Who (that's only two weeks away, if you hadn't noticed), but we also have a great episode to discuss this time! We continue the dinosaur trend with DINOSAURS ON A SPACESHIP. There's no sign of Samuel L. Jackson, but we do have guest visits from Mr. …
 
The Doctor and Sarah Jane return to present day London to find it basically empty, save for looters, UNIT, and dinosaurs?!!? Trying to sort out the cause of these time eddies, The Doctor & Sarah Jane also discover deep underground (former) military bases, MK Ultra-esque mind control programs, and a secret space program psyop worthy of Alternative T…
 
October is finally here and, with it, the spookiest month of the year! Join us as we discuss one of the most haunted places in America: The Queen Mary. From her life as a luxury liner to her service in World War 2, we look at the various events and mishaps that shaped her history. We talk about the hauntings aboard, when they started, and why perha…
 
This time we discuss the 5th Doctor story The Visitation! We go deep on the interpersonal dynamics on the TARDIS right now, marvel at a sparkly droid, and behold the joy that is the character of Richard Mace!Team TARDIS are finally getting Tegan back to Heathrow, but they’re 315 years early. That’s okay, right? The air is clean, the locals are...be…
 
Jump around! Jump around! In time, that is! This week, John & Taylor review...well, two different versions of Day of the Daleks! So you get the added bonus of us comparing what you'll find on BritBox versus the original broadcast version (and there definitely are some differences!). Regardless, Day of the Daleks is a little bit of an underwhelming …
