Doctor Who: The Sonic Toolbox
A Doctor Who podcast, hosted by Daisy Kaufman and Cheryl Lowe. We focus on Doctor Who from a "how does that work in the Doctor Who universe" science-ish point of view. There's also lots of other Doctor Who discussion, and some rabbit chasing.

We've survived another Gally! We made it out of Los Angeles alive! We're back, and this is what happened. Mostly.

It's that time of year again. Join us as we get ready for the Gallifrey One convention in Los Angeles next weekend. We're going thru the schedule of events, getting excited about what we want to see, and counting how many times we're going to need the time turner to get to everything.

Quarantine is over and we're all back and healthy. For the most part. We did our best to edit out all the coughing, but we may have missed a couple, sorry. But, we're back, and we're discussing those glass avatars from the Christmas special and looking into the very real possibility of humans being able to do something like this in the not to distant future.

So, we finally have all our Doctors in a row enough to bring our review of the Christmas episode this year. We apologize for the lateness of this review. These last couple of weeks have been filled with both biological and technical ich. But we're back! Consider us regenerated, like the Doctor! Now, on with the spoilery, Christmasy show!

Merry Christmas! It's that time of year when Doctor Who has a Christmas special, Cheryl gets sick, and snow is on the ground. Oh! Did I say Cheryl is sick? Unfortunately, she is coughing too much to be able to record, but I (Daisy) am here to give you my first impression of this year's Christmas special.

We'll have a full review just as soon as Cheryl gets better.

We revisit Peter Capaldi's fist outing as The Doctor in anticipation of seeing his last story as our favorite Time Lord. It's amazing how things change with time and distance.

With Christmas so near, we thought it only fitting for us to look back on all the times that the earth has been invaded.

We, too, seem to have been rabbits. It appears they have gotten into our audio equipment. Which explains our weird sound problems.

It must be rabbit season again, because they keep running around. But not to worry. They don't distract that much from our talking about last year's Christmas episode "The Return of Doctor Mysterio". In the run up to this year's Christmas show, and the Doctor's regeneration, we're giving Doctor Mysterio a second look and refreshing our memories with what we liked and didn't like.

WARNING: Rabbit chasing ahead

We're talking about the Bootstrap Paradox also known as a Closed Time Loop. A lovely little scientific anomaly that allows science fiction writers to confuse the hell out of their readers and viewers.

Please also excuse our brief audio problem mid-show. This was the best we could fix it (and the reason we're a tad late posting).

We're discussing "Under the Lake" and "Before the Flood". This isn't really a review, as we did that when they first aired, but more a revisiting and re-discovery. We also have feedback, and a few rabbits.
