52: The Long Game
Erika and Steven jump forward once again to series 1 of “new” Who with “The Long Game”. This story that has a surprising number of parallels with “The Time Meddler”, which they just finished. And both realize they like it more than the remembered!

61: The Daleks' Master Plan 1
Erika and Steven had Quite A Day. And what better way to celebrate A Day than to watch some reconstructed classic Doctor Who from 1965? We certainly can’t think of one? Why was it Such A Day, you ask? Well, Uncanny Magazine, for which Steven and Erika produce a monthly podcast (and Erika helps proof the magazine itself), won a Hugo Award for Best Semiprozine! Erika is Rather Overwhelmed.

56: Mission to the Unknown
Ok, NOW our Canada Day mini-marathon concludes! Erika and Steven complete the last episode in the Verity Lambert era, the unique-in-many-ways “Mission to the Unknown”. We watched an animated version of this “Dalek Cutaway” (no, it’s not really called that), which was really fab. Erika felt as much tension watching the animated characters as she has with many live actors. It cooked along and I could tell what was happening! More observations and some serious reminiscences await in the podcast!

Is it time for Steven and Erika to go out and enjoy the Edmonton sunshine on a beautiful Saturday? Well, yes, by now it is, but 25 minutes ago, no!

26 Aug 2016
49: The Time Meddler 1
Steven and Erika do another on-location episode, this time from the very heart of The Incomparable Podcast Network—Jason Snell’s garage. It’s a perfect opportunity to create some content, in this case, episode 1 of 1965’s “The Time Meddler”.
22 May 2016
38: The Space Museum 1
Erika and Steven dive into the next Doctor Who serial from 1965. Erika declares it NONSENSE! Steven drops some technical knowledge. It’s a real party. Or a real podcast from a couch. You decide.

157: The Seeds of Death 1
Erika and Steven finish off their day of Superbowl counter-programming with the first episode of a story they both like quite a bit. If it wasn’t for Erika’s pesky day job, they might press on, but alas; it is bedtime for her.

79: Bad Wolf/The Parting of the Ways
Erika and Steven complete their frolic through the 2005 series of Doctor Who. It’s a strong finish for RTD’s “first album”. So that means the foreseeable future will be all classic-Who all the time. Probably.

92: The Tenth Planet (1-4)
Steven and Erika are joined by a couch interloper! Annette Wierstra provides a slightly new-Whoish perspective on this, the origin of the Cybermen. We also chat about the series 10 finale and the trailer for the 2017 Christmas special. It’s a truly momentous episode. We have completed the William Hartnell era, and the timing is perfect to tie in with the current series. Just…wow.

149: The Mind Robber 3-5
Erika and Steven finish off this delightfully fictional story in one fell swoop. They also wander off on many tangents, but they’re pretty much all fictional so that qualifies as being kinda-sorta on-topic. Probably.
16 Jan 2019
158: The Seeds of Death 2-3
Steven and Erika continue to enjoy the exciting adventures of the Doctor and his companions as they take a rocket to the moon! Fewsham is insulted and pitied, Ms. Kelly and Mr. Phipps are admired, the direction is appreciated, and T-Mat dumbwaiters are invented. So much fun!
