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 152: Doctor Who is The Caretaker of This Review

Something weird's going on at Coal Hill School (again) and, of course, the Doctor is right smack dab in the middle of it.  And so are we, right along with him.  This week, it's "The Caretaker" and we're taking care not just of reviewing the story this week, but there's so much sciencey goodness packed into this story that it's going to leak out into future TST episodes if we're not careful (and we're not).  Not to mention (which we do) Danny Pink finally makes it into the TARDIS and gets himself stuck in the Doctor's craw.

"The Caretaker" has got so many talking points for this review we may not have any room for the rabbits. (Yeah. Don't bet on it.)

Episode 151: Let's Do The Time Heist Again

A good old fashioned romp, that's just what the Doctor ordered.  a mysterious caper, an anoying middle-management baddie, and a monster you can feel sorry for.  It's got Classic Who written all over it.  Now all we need is a moble conputer side kick and an exotic beauty with a trick or two up her sleeve...oh, wait a minute. 

Come along for our review of this week's Doctor Who episode, Time Heist.  And some rabbit chasing.  Oh, and I wouldn't touch that worm if I were you.  Don't blame us if you can't remember how you got here.

Episode 150: Listen! Don't Be Scared Of Our Review

Things that go bump in the night.  Monsters under the bed. Shadows moving jst out of sight.  Steven Moffat must have had a tortured childhood.  Tho the premise is a bit shakey - everyone has the same exact nightmare a some point in their lives, come on - he starts of this forth story, "Listen", like gangbusters.  And then...well, wouldn't want to spoil the review for you.

Plus news, feedback and rabbits!

Episode 149: Rabbit Chasing with the Robot of Sherwood

Ah, Robin Hood...from Errol Flynn to Disney to Kevin Cosner there's been a Robin for every generation.  This generation's Robin meets our favorite man in a blue box.  A clash of egos?  A clash of wits?  How about a classic archery contest?  Throw in some robots and a good measure of swordplay (spoon?) and you've got yourself a Mark Gatiss script!  Huzzah!!
