Doctor Who: The Sonic Toolbox (new episode review)
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 190: The Girl Who Died - Review

Here we are at story three.  Coming after the amazingness of Before the Flood can it hold up to the standard that set?  Well, the premise is good.  And may we say "Maisie Williams". 

Vikings and armored aliens...what could go wrong?

Episode 189b: Before the Flood - Full Review

Cheryl's back and we have our full review of Before the Flood for you.  It's a big one.  You'd have thought Daisy wouldn't have that much to say, having said her piece yesterday.  But noooo, there was apparently a lot more to say.  For both of them.

There's feedback, too!

WARNING: SPOILERS (and rabbit chasing)

Episode 189a: Before the Flood - First Impressions

Before you start wondering, Cheryl had a family thing to attend and won't be able to watch or record until tomorrow (Sunday the 11th).  Since we didn't want you to have to go so long without something to listen to right after this week's Doctor Who airs, Daisy decided to give you her first impressions of Before the Flood straight away and then join Cheryl for a proper review after she sees it tomorrow.  That's 2...2...TWO for the price of one!

Episode 184: The Song of DoctorDonnaFriend

Planet of the Ood.  That's what's going on here.  We can't believe we haven't reviewed this since it first aired.  So, we're remedying that this episode. Ooooood. Just love saying it.  Also, sorry we forgot to tell you about it last time in our Next Time segment that we forgot to do.  Ooooooops.  So if you haven't seen it yet, don't listen to this show until you have.  There's tons of spoilers, we don't watch what we say.  Course, we seem to have a problem with that in general.

We also have a bit of news.  And a bit of rabbit chasing.

DISCLAIMER: Cheryl and Daisy have no intention of ever committing any crime against anyone.  The discussions herein are merely academic.

Episode 182: Blink (182)

(The laptop is all fixed. Sorry this is a week late. Thanks so much for waiting.)

We'er revisiting the 10th Doctor story "Blink" this week. Why, you might ask, are we revisiting this particular story? Because this is our 182nd episode and we can't help being cheezy. And Daisy's an old Blink-182 fan and used this as an excuse to reconnect with their music.  So, you lucky folk get our second look at the first Weeping Angels story. And get to listen to some of Blink-182's songs in the background. See below for the playlist.

We've also got Gally news! Also some yarny talk and somehow zombies work their way in to the discussion.

WARNING: Contains rabbits

Episode 177: Creepy, Creepy, Creepy

Cupboard, and peg dolls, and George...Oh, my! It's not deja vu, we are revisiting "Night Terors". We thought it would be a good idea to take a fresh look at this Series 6 story and see what we thought of it out of story arc contex (and without the starry eyes we always have with shiny new episodes).

WARNING: Contains rabbit chasing.

Episode 172: Good Bye 9, Hello 10

Out with the old, in with the new!  New format for us, new Doctor for the show.  As you could tell, we've gone to a bi-weekly format.  Life has gotten busy and we don't want to give this up, so this is the compromise.  We're reviewing the two parter here, Bad Wolf/A Parting of the Way.  This is the Series One finale and the first regeneration for those who just discovered Doctor Who in 2005.
