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 208: The Great Polymer Link

The Nestene Consciousness is the big, plastic baddie from the Third and Ninth Doctor's eras. You know, the ones that turned Rory into the plastic Centurion.  We're talking about who they are and how they exist. We're also, apparently, talking about everything else that comes to mind as well.

We've also got some news, some not news and some breaking news.

Episode 207:Xanthoplastianthophobia

Doctor Who telling us that we must be afraid of ordinary things started early. Like 1970s early. Like the Third Doctor telling us we should be afraid of yellow plastic flowers. Daffodils to be exact. Plastic daffodils. The ones being handed out by... AUTONS!! Terrifying, really.  And so we review "Terror of the Autons" just in time for Spring.  It must be spring, the rabbits are out in force and multiplying like, well, rabbits.

Episode 206: Give Us A Moment

The Moment. A self aware weapon of mass destruction. Just how does that work? I fact, there's a whole bunch of questions about it's existence. Today, we try to figure it all out. 

Also, a little linguistic history lesson. And a whole lot of rampant rabbits.

(Thanks for your patience with us getting this posted. Life (and work) happens sometimes.)

WARNING: Contains much rabbit chasing
