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 212: Mr. Fibuli! Where's my cheese?

Next up as we hunt for the pieces of the Key to Time is our review of The Pirate Planet. Oh, how the cheese does flow.

Episode 211: Black Rabbit Holes

Black holes appear in lots of TV shows and movies. Doctor Who being no exception. Here in the Toolbox, we like black holes a lot more than we do those last two episodes we reviewed. And we want to impart our fascination with this cosmic phenomenon to you. As it turns out, we also want to take you on a merry rabbit chase.

 

We also have news. OMG! News in the summer time? Yes! News!

 

For more real info on black holes, Google "black hole facts" for a pages and pages of quick info lists.

 

WARNING: Contains rabbits.

Episode 210: Hell is for Podcasters

Cheryl has survived the flu! She's back and we can get on with the program. Today we review the 10th Doctor two-parter, The Impossible Planet/The Satan Pit.  We're also talking about the race for Gally hotel rooms that recently occurred. And Daisy's boyfriend, Grant, makes an unexpected appearance to put his two cents in, and talk briefly about the Marvel/Netflix show, "Jessica Jones". But first, a bit of rabbit chasing...

Episode 209: Civil War

This is not the show you expected. Cheryl has called in sick, so Daisy is taking over all by her lonesome.  Being that there is no Cheryl to talk to and no real Doctor Who news, this is a review of the newly released movie "Captain America: Civil War".  Why? Because Daisy just saw it, so why not.  The review is mildly spoilery, but no plot or specifics are revealed.  Nothing that gives anything away, at least.

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

Episode 205: Because John Hurt

We've gotten so excited at meeting the War Doctor, John Hurt (Daisy: photo op, Cheryl: autograph), that we decided to rewatch Day of the Doctor.  So here we are, talking about the other three doctor special all over again. This time we're just focusing on the stuff that we found of particular interest to us rather than giving an overall review of the whole show.
