They're coming thick and fast, these podcasts. New season, an' all. This time around we cast a critical eye over 'Deep Breath' as we bitch and moan and slur our words through episode 808.
Where the hell is Victorian Torchwood? Underused hat pins. Clock work numpties resolved too quick? Buying into a 3D Clara, or is she already ruined. Talking to anything. Plotflangium, like Dalekanium. Lucky regeneration episodes. Is the Doctor there yet? Strax, a waste of precious oxygen that is so defective he should be put down. Like the twittering of a bird. The actual size of a T-Rex (crack a book) - back to Pertwee and not 'Walking With'. Sloppy? Reassuring the fan girls. Things you excuse first time around. Hitting us over the head with lesbians? - more people upset about cake. She was ready to like it. Only a years contract. Being around teenagers. Picking faces, not noses. Mat Smith says it's ok to like Capaldi. Forgetting every incarnation she's already met. Was it two episodes? Not the Rani: No matter what she is she will be awful and disappointing, but at least not obtrusive. Cheesy lizards. Making horse shit believable. Not much mopping up.
Bless The Prof, as ever, for sterling work and his blatant audacity.
A hearty salute to Saint Xtofer (our wondering wise hermit) for helping keep folks entrained over on Facebook. We're all over Twitter and Google Plus. Don't forget (like Terry does) if you need to know our rating system it's here on our blog.
