Dirty WHOers Podcast - Episode 68

The Christmas episode reviewed, with brandy sauce and gravy. And it's a big one.

Indian giving 50th ratings, seeing other podcasts (who want's Sen and Sputters, we dare you!), sub-groups of religious do-dahs, the Powell Estate, Seal of the High Council, shagging the ultimate nun, follicle continuity, the pain of Hurt over Mr. McGann, numerical life cycles, who's on third?, chocolate cybermen (and sex toys), accuracy of juvenile hair colouring, Valliard mathematics, PROPER change, the opinions of Sputters wife re: Clara, Moffs retconing thang, the value of indi. script editors, the bullshit/K-9dom of Handles, and a load of other pointless arguing.

Big thanks to The Prof, as ever, for his ongoing awesomeness. Big thanks to everyone who listens to this slurring tosh.

Do feel free to say howdy over on Twatter, on Facepalm, and over on LinkedIn+. We also have that kidney crippling Dirty WHOers drinking game, and, if you need it, don't forget the Dirty WHOers rating system.

Now go and wash your ears out with soap and water, and avoid eating soya products if you don't want moobs.

Great word vomit, Dirty WHOers. You're my kind of Whovians. I offer you my shit in return.

You guys were a *little* harsh. Lots of annoying things to carp about, and some big plot holes, but what's new about that? Also lots to like, from the turkey gag to Handles (a little goes a long way, but still, cute) to the "don't ever tell me the rules speech" and Smith's subsequent pleased-as-punch expression when he realizes he got a little Christmas present from the Time Lords, to the "we all change" speech that Terry liked and the actual regeneration. The episode suffered both from coming on the heels of the 50th anniversary show - which was, unusually, really well plotted - and some of the goofier elements - like you guys, I'm tired of the "all the baddies in the universe converge," and I'm-River-Song-but-Not-Really, but I thought it was a poignant episode. (Surely your heartstrings have to go out a bit to the antsy Doctor, the guy who couldn't spend a week with the Ponds in "The Power of Three," hanging around a low-tech planet for hundreds of years!)

Anyway, great podcast as usual. Nice choice of drink, Mr. Sputnik - and now we know why the episodes are around 30 minutes long: that's the point at which Sputters starts getting incomprehensible. :)
