We pilot the TARDIS back through the vortex this week for our latest Adversary Archive: The Sontarans. In this episode we review two classic Sontaran stories, The Sontaran Experiment and The Invasion of Time.

Big Finish

*I’m pretty sure the Big Finish Audio that featured the “black rectangular hole” chasing the Tardis (the time scoop, from “The Five Doctors”) was within the second season of the Paul McGann 8th Doctor Adventures.  I belive it was episode 2.7 “Sisters Of The Flame”, but bewarned!  This is the first of a THREE PART story arc, which continues in the season 2 finale 2.8 “Vengenance Of Morbius” and the season three premier, 3.1 “Orbis”.  A fantastic tale, but does feature some characters from previous 8th Doctor audio adventures. – Shaun

Episode 34 – Goo Goo G’Joob

Third Doctor: Jo, it’s all quite simple – I am he and he is me!
Jo Grant: And we are all together, goo goo g’joob?

In this week’s episode we review four multi-Doctor stories, starting with the classic Third Doctor story, The Three Doctors. We follow that up with the less then stellar, The Two Doctors, and then the absolutely superb mini-episode, Time Crash. And to round things out, we talk a little about the multi-Doctor extravaganza, Dimensions in Time.

Oh, and of course news and your feedback! Enjoy!
