MUTTER’S SPIRAL Podcast continues previewing the 2019 Gallifrey One convention, this time with our great friends from HeadOverFeels.com, Kim Rogers & Sage Young!  It’s become a pre-Gally tradition to visit with Sage & Kim before the convention to get the rundown on all the cool things they’re participating in at Gally!

We will talk about the epic upcoming “This or That” panel session with Pearl Mackie, Nicola Bryant, and Rosie Jane.  “This or That” was a favorite of everyone (including the guest participants) at last year’s Gally, and this year’s edition should be a blast!  (Saturday 1 pm in Program A)

We will also talk about another HoF-led favorite, the Fan Video Happy Hour – Sage & Kim always pick a fantastic crop of emotional and fabulous videos put together by some amazingly talented folks.  Bring your tissues! (Friday 4 pm Program E)

We’ll then cover the individual panels that the ladies will be on – Sage is on the “Doctor Who Crossover: Musicals Edition” panel (with another friend of the show, Susan Stanton) at 6 pm Friday in Program C.  This should be a fun and interactive panel where the panel of ardent fans of Broadway musicals recast various works with Doctor Who characters playing parts.

Kim is moderating the “Midnight in the Garden of Who and Evil” at 11 pm Saturday in Program C.  This 18+ panel will focus on the world of fan fiction and will include some dramatic readings of works created by the panelists and by the audience.

This is a fun conversation with Kim & Sage, and it’s a definite sign that Gally is ALMOST HERE!  Come have a listen!

MUTTER’S SPIRAL Podcast is back with another preview of the 2019 edition of the Gallifrey One Convention – today focusing on the Academic Track – titled “Time Lord Timelines: An Academic Symposium”!  We’re thrilled to be joined by Joy Piedmont and Paul Booth, who have organized a wide-ranging and interesting collection of topics and speakers at the Symposium, which will take place on Friday, February 15 from 3 pm until 7 pm in Program B.

We’ll talk to Joy and Paul about how the Symposium came about (this is the 2nd edition), what types of subjects and topics they look for, and how they chose this year’s presenters.  We’ll then dive deep into the schedule and go over each presentation (including one that John is keenly interested in and had even thought of suggesting himself!) individually to get a bird’s-eye view of what can be expected.

It’s a terrific and interesting conversation with Joy & Paul that really gives the full rundown on what to expect.  Please have a listen!

It is indeed the MOST WONDERFUL TIME… OF THE YEAR!  That’s right, the annual Gallifrey One Convention, the world’s largest (and best) Doctor Who Convention is just around the corner, and MUTTER’S SPIRAL Podcast will be previewing the convention in full this week!  It’s the 30th edition of the con; it’s John’s 15th and my 13th (and the podcast’s 9th!); and it looks to be another corker of a weekend!

We’ll talk all about the great guests (Including CATHERINE TATE, PEARL MACKIE, JOHN BARROWMAN, COLIN BAKER, and many more!), the fantastic fan panels (including the 2 John will be on), and of course the many other amazing highlights to come (THIS or THAT, FAN VIDEO HAPPY HOUR, IN DEFENSE OF, the ACADEMIC TRACK, and so much else).

It’s our annual deep dive into and through the schedule.  We’re super excited for Gally, and we hope to give listeners a taste of what’s to come this year!  Also,  John finds out what game, featured in a panel at this year’s Gally, that I’ve NEVER played, which stuns him while i promise to maybe, perhaps, possibly try to participate in one of the other great games.  So, it’s chock full of Wibbly-Wobbly Timey-Wimey Stuff!

We will also be doing 2 more previews of Gally: one with Joy Piedmont and Paul Booth, focused on the “Time Lord Timelines: An Academic Symposium“, the Academic Track that they’ve put together (dropping Thursday); and one with our great friends Kim Rogers and Sage Young of HeadoverFeels.com for next week that’ll discuss in detail THIS or THAT, FAN VIDEO HAPPY HOUR, the FanFic panel, the Doctor Who/Musicals crossover panel and more.

MUTTER’S SPIRAL Podcast returns with our review of Series 11 of Doctor Who – we talk about the highs and the lows; our expectations before the series vs. our feelings now; and where we hope to go into the future.  We also have some news as well as detailing our plans for the podcast in 2019 (and, shockingly, it involves actually podcasting regularly).  Please have a listen!

Next up – our previews of Gallifrey One 30 will start dropping, as the convention is just over a month away!

Happy New Year from MUTTER’S SPIRAL Podcast!  And there’s no better way to start 2019 than with a smashing new Doctor Who episode – “Resolution” (written by Chris Chibnall & directed by Wayne Yip)!  John and I talk all about this reintroduction of the Doctor’s oldest and most deadly (and famous) foes (or a singular foe, in this case).  We will go in depth on this story as well as discussing where the show is now that we are one full year into the Chibnall/Jodie era (and as we head into a LONG break between stories).  We’ll talk about the Ryan/Aaron resolution (see what we did there) as well as talking about all of the various “Chekhov’s ______” from this episode (Kate Stewart, where are you?).  Plus, there’s trivia and even some New Year’s Resolutions!  Please have a listen!

It’s DOCTOR WHO Series 11 finale time, and MUTTER’S SPIRAL Podcast has returned to discuss “The Battle of Ranskoor Av Kolos.  John and I explain how we felt about the episode and how it encapsulates the entire series.  There’s some good, but also some elements that disappoint and frustrate us.  We talk about this new iteration of the show and how it has certainly satisfied some viewers while leaving others, like us, feeling slightly (John) or even moreso (me) let down.  We extol the great cast while lamenting the less stellar writing and direction.  We dive into it all.  Plus, there’s trivia and news (about the show’s future and how the podcast will handle ANOTHER huge hiatus between series coming up).  Please have a listen!

MUTTER’S SPIRAL Podcast travels to Norway (not literally) to talk about “It Takes You Away” (written by Ed Hime, Directed by Jamie Childs), the 9th episode of Series 11 (37) of DOCTOR WHO.  It’s perhaps my least favorite episode of the season (along with “Kerblam!”), and while John liked it more, he still had some issues with various story elements.  We’ll dive into all of those, as well as talking about things that did work or interesting ideas that were presented.  We’ll also discuss my feelings of fatigue and frustration as the series has progressed and as we move towards the last episode of this run.

Of course, there’s also trivia, including a classic Who question that I’m ashamed to say I totally choked on.  So there’s that to look forward to!  Please have a listen!  Thanks!

MUTTER’S SPIRAL Podcast is back to talk about “The Witchfinders”, written by Joy Wilkinson and directed by Sallie Aprahamian, the 8th episode of Series 11.  Join John and I as we talk about this trip back to Jacobean times – what we liked about the story (many things – writing, acting, direction, pretty much everything) and what didn’t work as well (not a whole lot).  It’s an episode that I’ve grown more fond of with each viewing, and John was in at the start – so we have a good discussion about an episode that was a highlight of the season for us both.  Plus, we’ll talk news, and there’s trivia, OF COURSE!  Please have a listen!

KERBLAM! … is the name of the 7th episode of the 11th Series of Doctor Who – written by Pete McTighe and directed by Jennifer Perrott, and it’s the subject of this week’s podcast.  John and I will discuss how we felt about this story (both a bit Meh) and where it dropped the ball, in our eyes.  We’ll also evaluate our ever-evolving feelings about this series.  And, of course, there’s trivia!  Please have a listen!

MUTTER’S SPIRAL Podcast is back (a few days late this week, our apologies) to talk about “Demons of the Punjab” (written by Vinay Patel and directed by Jamie Childs), the sad and affecting 6th episode of Series 11 of DOCTOR WHO.  We’ll talk about what worked (Lots, it’s a beautiful hour of television) and what didn’t work (we did have some issues, though, especially concerning the Doctor) for us in the episode.  Plus, we’ll speculate about the rest of the Series, including the finale; talk news (New Year’s Day!) and ratings; and of course, there’s trivia!  Please have a listen!
