    Watches have previously been used to store the memories of Time Lords locked away by the Chameleon Arch  There have been many other stories featuring multiple Doctors There were three TARDISes in one room during The Day of the Doctor To the relief of the OM, Chris Chibnall confirmed, “she is definitely the Doctor.

Charming intergenerational discussion!

Lovely thoughts on Doctor Who from a lovely dad-daughter duo. Quickly became a must-listen podcast!

A journey of discovery

I love the casualness of this podcast. A man and his daughter watch Doctor Who together and then discuss the episodes. They’re not in any particular order. We don’t know what they’re going to watch. They watch it and they talk about it and then it’s over. We get to share in the joy of someone discovering a show and someone else rediscovering it.
