Dirty WHOers Podcast - Episode 55

First of the new season. Here we go. 3 in one. Bosh!

'Bells of St. John', 'The Rings of Akhaten' (however the hell you pronounce it), and 'Cold War'. A mixed bag of ratings, from the usual crew.

We chew the fat about Girl Scout cookies, Lacertilia body armour, Unicode router addresses, audience participation singing, grandfatherly v's stalkerish behaviour (the Worthers Original effect), episode order, assorted Brit actors (and their potential Gallifreyaness), the merits of the Triumph Bonneville Scrambler, America's (not) got talent, fictional overhead compartments, crackling Crocodylidae energy, the cantina scene from Star Wars, and occasional mention of Doctor Who.

Thanks (as ever) to The Prof, and to Scott from FANWANK for the fun custom intro - and hey, if you wanna do an into for the podcast, just let us know. We have no shame :)

Don't forget to check out the Dirty WHOers rating system, and our podcast drinking game.

New series viewer? Did you get lost with the nostalgia in these episodes? El Presidente Senmondo wants to know, so have your say over on Facebook or Google Plus.

As ever, you lovely deranged creatures, a very big thank you for punishing your ears with our bollocks.

Dirty WHOers Podcast - Episode 54

Once upon a time there were 4 podcasters...

Here we are again, this time taking a gander at one of Troughton's few remaining episodes, 'The Mind Robber' [1968]. Brace your self.

The sounds a bit dodgey on this one in places. Thanks Prof for doing the usual tricky edit.

This time around we discuss the difference in odor between canine and feline guano. The ignorance of certain podcasters as to the intricacies of the Start Trek universe. The knees and underwear of the Scottish. Killer soundscapes. Age restrictions on the possession of a glittery purple derriere. Terry's mute button skills. All the usual bollocks.

Plus, Sen totally goes off on one (in the best way possible). Which is always awesome.

Mini-review of the Matt Smith monologue from The Rings of Akhaten with bonus rant.

This is what I thought of Matt Smith's monologue
from The Rings of Akhaten:

...And before anyone starts, NO I don't hate Doctor Who. I simply did not like that scene. I'm a whovian. Not a born again. I can 'not like' some stories or scenes in Doctor Who, or even certain Doctors. It's OK. I've noticed some conversations on the internet saying there are whovians that hate Doctor Who just because they didn't like this episode. WHAT?
Are we really that intolerant of other opinions? I mean, I like to joke and give my friends a hard time when they like 'Love and Monsters' or Adric(seriously, what?), but I don't think they hate Doctor Who because of it. Sheesh, people. That's a pretty big leap in logic.
   So don't freak out when I say..
It's a TV show. Get some perspective. There are people dying in the real world because of real monsters. Human, mostly..

Oh, see... now I've ranted all over myself.
