    The I's Have It

    And we're back! This time around we have "Seeing I" by Kate Orman and Jonathan Blum. We get a new & improved Sam while The Doctor descends into madness. Plus there's a new baddie - the I - which causes us some pronoun/ocular confusion. Featuring music by The Regrettes.

    It's the Search Not the Find

    Sasha's sabbatical is over and it's back down to business with Paul Leonard's "Dreamstone Moon". The Doctor and Sam are galaxies apart seeking one another when they are thrust into a Phildickian dream world replete with untethered corporate greed and tentacled nightmares. Well, sort of.

    Message to Love

    With Sasha's sabbatical nearing an end, Brooke and Skip tackle two final Short Trips: "The People's Temple" by Paul Leonard (no Jim Jones here) and Trevor Baxendale's "The Queen of Eros" (with some storge too). This is surely the first time Harlequin Romance novels have been mentioned in our show. It also features even more debate on the poor, misbegotten Sam Jones because we know you can't get enough.

    Fun With John Peel

    Fun With John Peel

    This week we have an interview with John Peel, author of two EDAs: War of the Daleks and Legacy of the Daleks. He talks about these books plus the many other Doctor Who novels he's written. (And many more non-DW books to boot.) Peel also gives the story on how he befriended Dalek creator Terry Nation, what makes a good Doctor Who story, and a whole lot more.
