On a quiet Whovian news week, we test our memory of dialogue, trying to remember which character uttered a particular statement from the modern episodes. From phrases that could easily be a number of Doctor’s regenerations, to companions that seem to make very similar observations, Keir puts on his ill-fitting gamekeeper’s hat, and puts Jay and Haley to the test.

We didn’t have particular concerns about jumbo shrimp until this Season 15 story came around. Now we feel a bit ‘nerve-ous’ around them. (Get it? Brain? Nerve? *sigh*)

Jeremy Radick joins us again a the top of Season 15 for a nice, leisurely tour of a lighthouse on a perfectly serene evening. Everything is just fine. Nothing unusual or alarming.

We task ourselves this week with identifying just a few of the briefly-met characters who we wish had another opportunity, large or small, to return to the program.

With an attempt to acknowledge the quality of the storyline while remaining keenly aware of the careless, and inarguably racist execution, we delve into the six-part conclusion to Season 14 and all the issues it brings to light.

If broadcasts of Earth films ever get picked up by Sontaran fleets, this may be their reviews of what we consider “classics”. We really don’t expect them to be appreciated. We do, however, have a pretty entertaining time trying to figure out exactly what movie our noble knobby-headed warrior is ranting about.

With a fistful of sticky bike reflectors, we head into the Fourth Doctor and Leela’s second adventure, an Agatha Christie-meets-Isaac Asimov murder mystery with Leninist overtones. (Oh, and sand!).
