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 160: Sometimes I Wish I Worked In A Bank

This weeks we're all about "The Daemons", the 3rd Doctor Season 8 finale.  Or, mostly all about...the rabbits have invaded the studio once again.  This is the one where the Brig says "Chap with the wings. Five rounds rapid."  We thougt it would be nice to watch some young Brigadier.  Remember him the way he was.

Episode 159: Ooh, Look a Gadget!

Now that Series 8 is over we can take a sane (ha!) look back at all the nifty new tech that the lovely writers have given to us.  From neyphyte circuits to hyperspace ribbons, from a Skovox blitzer to the Gallifreyan hard drive, we're touching on it all.  Just an overview this time, plenty of shows next year to go into detail on how we think it all works.

If you have an idea about how any of this stuff works, please drop us a line!  We'd love to include your input when we discuss each gadget in detail on it's own episode next year.
