When writer Toby Whithouse gives us a story that finally centers around Tosh, we should know better than to expect a ‘very special episode’ where things turn out lovely.
With Keir out of town on official (cough cough — DragonCon — cough cough) business, Jay and Haley set out to prove that they’re perfectly capable of playing a Whovian trivia game. This time, instead of naming the character who uttered a particular quotable line, they try and identify the specific episode it came from.
Pitting our heroes against not one but two formidable adversaries, we look at the six-part coup d’êtat story that ends not only the 15th classic season, but a very important relationship as well. We discuss the unexpected nature of this “Agnew”-penned season closer, the ever-changing nature of the conflict that helps maintain interest through a six-part story, and the unusual performances of Baker and Jameson, given the timing of the production.
