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 200 Corrected - Review of 2015 Christmas Special

If you have already downloaded Episode 200, than you might have noticed that somehow it was instead Episode 199. We're sorry, we don't know what happened. This is the correct Episode 200. This really is our review of The Husbands of River Song.

We've also replaced the wrong file on the original post with this correct one, so if you haven't downloaded it to your podcast playing device yet (or if you stream it) you should get the correct one when you do. Our original Facebook and Twitter posts are also getting the correct file now, as well. iTunes is also now playing the correct file.

Sorry for the inconvenience. It couldn't have happened at a worse time. Happy New Year!

Episode 199: Little Tech Rabbits

There was some new technology in Series 9. The Sonic Sunglasses and the Confession Disk were both introduced. There were also some story specific tech. We try to discuss all of this, but the rabbits keep jumping in and out. Nonetheless, we still figure out some stuff that we didn't think we knew anything about. How d'ya like that!

Episode 195: Face the Raven - Review

Face the Raven. Nothing like the self sacrifice of a well meaning companion. Today we travel down what can only be Diagon Alley in search of the meaning of the countdown tattoo. Don't fear the reaper, for death is beauty and smoke.

Episode 194: Sleep No More - Review

Mark Gatiss is back and WOW this one hits all the buttons on our fear generator. Nothing like a good, old fashioned fright fest as the weather turns cold and blustery. Sleep No More fits the bill, just don't watch it with the lights out.
