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 220: Books Ran Away With Our Androids

We're here to talk about Androids of Tara, but before we can get to that we get carried away geeking out about books we've read. But get to it we do. And boy, do we have a lot to say. Plus some news.

Episode 217: It's Just A Jump To The Left

Hyperspace is only a theory and a Science Fiction concept. But for us it's as real as last week's Doctor Who episode.And the subject of this week's show.

We've also got a tiny bit of Gally news. And the usual rabbit chasing.


(Sorry we're late posting this. Technical issues, natch.)

It's the third story in the Key To Time series, Stones of Blood, that we're reviewing this time out. It's our favorite of the Key to Time stories and we've been looking forward to picking it apart.

Before we get to that, tho, the hot weather has our rabbits running for cooler temps in the form of the new fall TV shows here in the US. With nothing newsworthy (in our opinion) going on with Doctor Who, we feel obliged to indulge in a bit of that sort of rabbit chasing.

Episode 215: Gunsliinger Borg

Kahler-Tek, known now as "The Gunslinger", kind of looks like a Borg. It got us thinking that perhaps his technology was similar enough to use as a jumping off place for this discussion. And, amazingly enough, for the most part the rabbits seem to have agreed!

We've got a little bit of news. A spoiler-free review of Star Trek Beyond. Also, for you Sherlock fans, the three words for Series 4.

Episode 214: A Fist Full Of Doctors

This is a re-review of A Town Called Mercy. We're revisiting it with the newness worn off. Also since Daisy has seen Ben Browder in Farscape. (She hadn't seen it yet when this episode was first run.) All new attitudes and a fresh look!

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!
