In this week’s show we examine the similarities and contrasts between both treatments of Paul Cornell’s Human Nature. We look at both the Virgin New Adventures novel featuring the Seventh Doctor and Bernice Summerfield and the Series 3 television adventure with the Tenth Doctor and Martha Jones. Listen to us give our impressions of both adventures which sometime clash in the realm of Doctor Who universal canon and continuity.
Also, a few announcements surrounding this week’s return of the television show with Series 8.
Plus, lot’s of discussion regarding Doctor Who: Legacy and the release of The Hunt for Greyhound One.
And, of course, your feedback!

Due to recent server and website outages, we have had to take a long hard look at moving our growing number of files on our RSS feed to a new professional space.
It seems we are the victims of our own success, and have simply out grown our current server host. To that end we have create a Patreon page and are asking for your help and support in keeping our show rolling.
We plan to continue no matter what, but it seems that so much of our growth comes from people who discover us and go back to listen from the beginning, or even those among you who go back and re-listen to old shows, we want to keep the archives around. New server space allows us to do that, and so much more!
We’re still nailing down the details on how to reward patrons, (some sort of exclusive content perhaps?) but regardless would appreciate your support. Please visit the link below.
Again as always, a big thank you to our Vortex family.
