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 139: Three Dog Night

No bull…frogs here, Jeremiah or otherwise named.  Just a robot dog named K-9.  Of course, there’s no “just” about him.  Loyal, smart and with a lazar nose and tickertape tongue, K-9 is probably one of the Doctor’s best beloved companions.  At least among us fans.  We love him, and we’re talking all about him.

Episode 138: The Beatles

Come on in and don't rush the stage.  It's festival seating and the tickets are free!  Welcome to the start of The Sonic Toolbox 2014 Summer Concert Series!!  This week on our stage it's The Beatles!!!  Ok, so it isn't really, but we are reviewing the 10th Doctor/Donna story "Turn Left".  You know, the one where she has a beetle on her back.  See what we did there?  So sit back, put those records on your record player (or turn on your MP3 player...just doesn't have the same ring to it, tho) and join us in a Magical Mystery Tour of an alternate kind.

Episode 137: Yeti Yeti Yeti

The Doctor faces off with the Yeti once again!  This time in the London Underground.  With Colonel Lethbridge-Stewart.  Yup, this week we review the Second Doctor story "The Web of Fear".  This is the story where we meet the Brig before he was a Brigadier.  So much furryness.  So much story.  So much...hey! Where's episode 3?  Damn you, BBC!!  Oh, well.  Has anyone dared to look in Sudanese TV station studios, maybe??

Episode 136: Meatloaf Shouldn't Go Thunk

We've talked about the TARDIS before.  We've had discussions about the Chameleon Circuit and temporal physics.  This week, we're discovering a whole bunch (but by no means all) of the little used funtions of the TARDIS.  Little things that the Doctor may have mentioned or used only once, things that writers or showrunners came up with at the last moment when they realised they had painted our intrepid crew into the perverbial corner.

And stuff...

She's our favorite new Who companion.  This week we discuss why we love her so much.  Donna Noble, that fiery redhead, draws us in and becomes our touchstone companion with her down-to-earth way and her lack of attraction to the Doctor.  That and so much more.
