BREAKING WHO NEWS: Steven Moffat has announced he’s stepping down after Series 10, to be replaced by Broadchurch creator (and Who and Torchwood writer) Chris Chibnall.  AND, NO NEW WHO UNTIL CHRISTMAS 2016!  SO – lots to talk about in a special BREAKING NEWS edition of MUTTER’S SPIRAL!

So, how do John & Will feel about this changing of the guard?  What do they think of Chibnall’s previous work, and what might Who look like with him in charge?  We go through a lot of what we know and share our thoughts.  Won’t you join us?

HAPPY NEW YEAR!  MUTTER’S SPIRAL Podcast is back, and since it’s an even-numbered year, that means SHERLOCK is back, too!  “The Abominable Bride” returns Sherlock, Watson, Mary, Molly, Lestrade, Mrs. Hudson, Mycroft & Moriarty to our screens FINALLY!

It’s a very fun and inception-y episode with parts both in the 1890s (Traditional Sherlock Holmes stomping grounds) and modern day, following the end of S3 while also veering off fancifully!

John & Will discuss it fully – what they really liked, what they really did not like (Will has some issues, so much so that he can’t finish a sentence), but just generally exalt in the return of Holmes & Watson to our screens.  Plus, there’s trivia!  Please have a listen!

It’s time for the beloved annual tradition (well, since 2005): DOCTOR WHO at Christmas!  This year, the Doctor is back with a song…. RIVER SONG!  River makes her re-appearance in “The Husbands of River Song”, and we’ll talk all about it on the MUTTER’S SPIRAL Podcast!

There’s screwball comedy, unrecognized faces, a truly proper goggling at the dimensions of the TARDIS, great fun as well as heartfelt emotion and bittersweet sadness as the Doctor & River finally make it to the Singing Towers of Darillium for their (almost) final date.

John and I really loved this episode and enjoyed diving in and discussing it in great detail!  Plus, there’s some good trivia (OF COURSE!)!  Please have a listen!

Thanks to all of our listeners and downloaders for being a part of this!  Here’s to a Happy & Safe New Year to everyone, from John & me!

We’re going back in time on this week’s MUTTER’S SPIRAL Podcast: a re-posting (the original one is long gone) of “Vincent & The Doctor”, one of our very favorite episodes and one of our first podcasts (#10)!

We recorded about ten minutes of new content as an introduction, then you’ll travel by TARDIS (OK, speaker) back to June 2010 for our discussion of Vincent.  This seemed suitably gushy and happy for the holiday season!

Please enjoy our gift to you (and Doctor Who’s gift to all of us)!  Happy Holidays!

Mutter’s Spiral Podcast returns to talk about “Hell Bent”, the Series 9 finale of DOCTOR WHO – John & Will share their thoughts on the finale and the various goings on.  “Heaven Sent” was loved by us, but how do we feel about this follow up?  It’s an amazing episode and one that evokes strong feelings from us both, and we try and verbalize them, when not squeeing.  PLUS, the return of trivia!

Also, coming NEXT week, it’s a #FEELSSPIRAL, as Kim & Sage of HeadOverFeels.com join us to break things down further, give us convention updates and who knows what else?!?

MUTTER’S SPIRAL Podcast is back to talk about the SUBLIME, AMAZING, FANTASTIC episode of DOCTOR WHO, “Heaven Sent” – written by Steven Moffat & Directed by Rachel Talalay!

This is simply an episode we both loved – we’ll break down what worked, why it did, the challenges involved, and what this means for the upcoming season finale.  We’ll GUSH A LOT over how great Capaldi, Moffat, Talalay are and what an accomplishment this episode is.  Basically, it’s a love-fest… and a well-earned one!

There’s no trivia this week, as we wanted to get right to talking about the episode, although we do hit on some news tidbits, including the title of the Christmas episode!

Please have a listen, won’t you?  Thanks!

We’re back, and we’re sad – join us as we talk about “Face The Raven” – DOCTOR WHO Series 9, Episode 10.  We’ll discuss Clara’s exit and how we feel about her, the exit and how it was done, and what it means going forward.  It’s a gorgeously written episode from Sarah Dollard, and we pay homage to her while dealing with our feelings.  We’ll also go into historical context as well.  Plus, some trivia.

BTW, the musical intro is “Clara?” from Murray Gold and the Series 7 soundtrack.

MUTTER’S SPIRAL Podcast is back, and we’ve got company!  Our friend Shannon joins us to talk about her experience at LI Who 3, seeing Paul McGann, Katy Manning, Janet Fielding and others

We then get into a discussion about “Sleep No More”, the latest DOCTOR WHO episode from the pen (keyboard?) of Mark Gatiss.  This was one of the more experimental (and confusing) episodes of Doctor Who, so we talk about that, how it fits (or doesn’t) in S9, what didn’t really work for us, and what it might mean for the final 3 episodes.

We really enjoyed having Shannon on, as it led to some great discussion, and she has a lot to offer.  Take a listen and hear for yourself!
