Used to love this podcast

JR was annoyed that RFS complained about the lack of info on Dr Who??? At least RFS talks about Dr Who.

I used to love THIS podcast that WAS about Dr Who.

Great Film Talk

I just finished listening to their episode on The Wicker Man and Don’t Look Now. These guys are fun to listen to and are not pretentious. The debate about whether or not The Wicker Man is a musical is exactly the kind of talk my friends and I have all the time. Very enjoyable—have already subscribed.

IJL Thankful ,

Like being invited in...

To the coolest Dr Who conversation around. Thanks guys!
