Doctor Who: The Sonic Toolbox (non-tech talk)
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.

Gally's almost here and we're SO excited! All we want to do is talk about who we're going to see as guests. Well, you know us. Mostly all we want to talk about are Gally guests. So this show, we're taking a peek at the guest list and chatting about what we know and what we've seen of some of them. And some other things as we go careening off the path and down the rabbit hole.

WARNING: Contains many, many rabbits.

Episode 181: An Amateur Psychological Study on the Effects of Regeneration on the Companions Who Witness It

There have been many companions who have witnessed The Doctor's regeneration over the last 50 years.  We here at The Sonic Toolbox are taking the time to examine how each of those companions react to and deal with the change that happens to The Doctor.

There's also news and feedback. And a plug for one of our listeners who also has his own podcast (link below and on FB).

Episode 176: That's Not Real, Is It?

Hey! Guess what?  Doctor Who is actually TV show.  Did you know that?  Yup, and for the past 51 (and a bit) years the production team has been attempting special effects with varying degrees of success.  This show, we're hitting the highlights, and lowlights, from all seven Doctors.

Episode 172: Post-Gally Wrap Up At Last

So this is it.  The actual post-Gally wrap up.  We finally talk about this year's Gally in more than just generalities.  Daisy's voice is mostly back and can hold out for more (a lot more) than just 20 minutes.  Hence the rabbit chasing off to all sorts of other, geeky, topics.  Wheeeeeeee!!!

Episode 171: Pre-Post-Gally Wrap Up: Because Sick Sucks

Consider this a preview of our post-Gally wrap up episode.  Daisy is quite sick with a bad cold (possibly con crud) and is loosing her voice.  Hence the shortness of this show.  Please bear with us as real life intrudes on our Doctor Who fantasy life.  We'll be back with the full Gally story next week (and a full voiced Daisy).
