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 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.

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!
