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.
Episode 127: Ideal Pairings

We've all done it.  Facebook posts have been dedicated to discusing it.  There have probably even been panels at cons on the subject.  This week we tackle the topic of fantasy TARDIS crew building.  Like chefs in the kitchen, we're taking a pinch of him, a dab of her, putting them together and seeing what comes out.

Episode 126: Turlough's Choice

Spooky music, ships that race in space and creepy ship's officers are the thing this week.  The 5th Doctor, Turlough and Tegan find themselves stuck between an Eternal and a Black Guardian in "Enlightenment", and we find ourselves talking about it.  And a whole lot of other things, too.

WARNING: Contains rabbits, lots of rabbits

Episode 125: Down The Rabbit Hole

This week we make a valient effort to discuss the powers and abilities of Time Lords.  However, we keep getting drawn off topic, tho not off subject.  Yes, we're still talking about Time Lords (sort of), just other stuff regarding them.  Like regeneration and artron energy.

Episode 124: Do I Detect A Red Shirt

Having just seen Katy Manning at Gallifrey One, we decided to review a Jo Grant episode.  Then we noticed that this week is right in the middle of the 42nd anniversary of "The Sea Devils" first airing on TV in the UK.  It seemed a match made in...well, somewhere.  So here you have them: The Master, the third Doctor and the wonderful, amazing, self-relient Josephine Grant!  Oh yeah, and a guy who checks out strange noises in the dark.

Episode 123: Trying Not To Step On The Cockatiels

As we try to recover from our trip to Gallifrey One, we explore the doctor's own recovery process from regeneration.  Each itteration of our favorite time lord has his own reaction to post-regeneration sickness.  From coma to crazy, this week we talk about who did what and what causes this bizarre condition.
