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!

MUTTER’S SPIRAL Podcast is back to talk about the solution to “The Tsuranga Conundrum”, episode 5 of Series 11 of DOCTOR WHO, written by Chris Chibnall and directed by Jennifer Perrott.  We discuss what worked really well for both of us as well as what might not have hit the mark.  We’ll look at where things may be going, given that we’re now at the halfway point of the series.  As always, we’ll have trivia, ratings, and lots of other PTINGS!  Please have a listen!

MUTTER’S SPIRAL is crawling back into your eardrums to discuss “Arachnids In The U.K.” (Written by Chris Chibnall, directed by Sallie Aprahamian) the 4th episode of Series 11 of DOCTOR WHO.  We’ll talk all about those spiders, Chris Noth’s all-too-recognizable evil American tycoon, and TEAM TARDIS!  We’ll discuss what worked for us, as well as talking about the loose ends, left dangling like so many spider legs.  We’ll also have TRIVIA and news, so please have a listen!
