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.

Stand and deliver! No, it's not an Adam Ant song. It's a Doctor Who episode review! Maisie Williams is back this week with the sequel to The Girl Who Lived, only now she's calling herself "Me" and it's the 1600's.  Join us now as we discuss "The Woman Who Lived".

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 185: General Oodness or Do Oodkind Have Wives?

More Ood.  Odd Ood.  And rabbits.  Odd rabbits.  Ood rabbits?  No, that would be too weird.  We do seem to get a bit far flung this episode, however.  But when we come back around, we're all Ood science and speculation.  So, watch out!

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 183: The Mechanics of Rabbits

Here we attempt to explain and explore how time travel machines work.  Unfortuantely, the rabbits are driving Wranglers and keep running all over our conversations.  But we manage to get thru a small bit of news and feed back, so all is not lost. Actually, it's found!  So are TARDISs, Leviathans, vortex manipulaters, Omnis and time corridors.
