TTV-Logo-1400-150x150In this week’s podcast, we put our Doctor Who reviews to one side briefly for something a little bit different. In the first of a series of specials we are calling ‘Beyond the Doctor’ were looking at the William Hartnell acting vehicle, Carry On Sergeant. We’ll review the film and give our impressions on the actor’s take on a role that is different from the one we are very most familiar with in Doctor Who.

Also, we’ve added a little segment that we hope to continue from time to time. It’s our ‘Doctor Who: Legacy – Tip of the Week”. In this week’s installment, Glenn will have a tip for farming time fragments necessary for leveling up characters in the game.

Plus, the news of the week, including something of a scoop for us in news coming out of Planet ComicCon with the announcement of another Doctor Who guest.

And, of course, your feedback.

Enjoy!

We return to the 1st Doctor’s era for the next two weeks as we watch “The Sensorites”

TTV-Logo-1400-150x150This week we get a little silly, but take a break in out madness to review a couple of Eighth Doctor stories. In this show, we look at (or listen to, rather) Eight’s break out series by Big Finish, Blood of the Daleks parts 1 and 2.  Hear our impressions in the new format of audio drama that was developed for BBC Radio 7.

And, we discuss our first impressions of new companion, Lucie Miller

Holly’s Rescue Dogs

In episode 210, Holly (from Wisconsin) mentioned in her feedback that her family recently rescued two dogs and included a picture. Here’s what she said in her feedback:

 

 

Keith I agree with you about your story that you shared about the pets that you dealt with over Christmas. My family and I just rescued two dogs earlier in the fall and let’s just say they love their toys and the squeakers. Koko, the oldest of our two dogs is a mix of mini-pinscher chihuahua and loves anything that squeaks and will squeak said toy for minutes on end .She then loves to proceed to take said squeaker out of the toy a few days later. Mario, the youngest who is a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, loves the squeakers as well and is a little more gentler on the toys but every now and again, I will find some stuffing on the floor, but that’s what toys are for. Here’s pictures of the two little cuties resting.

 

 

And here’s the picture of Koko & Mario
