MUTTER’S SPIRAL Podcast – This week, it’s part 2 of the Silurian epic “Cold Blood” – John & Will talk about how much we did (or did not) enjoy the 2-parter as well as repercussions of events in the episode.  It’s an hour of Doctor Who talk and speculation – check it out!

MUTTER’S SPIRAL podcast – we devour “The Hungry Earth” – we drill down on episode 8, including talk of Hot Silurians, under-funded Welsh drilling operations, the longest 12 minutes ever and a mistake that the Doctor would never make.  It’s 55 minutes of Doctor Who analysis, talk and dissection from John & Will.  Come listen!

Hungry Earth Podcast

This episode did the lowest viewing figures since 2006 for the series, only 4.5 million viewers in the overnight figures, due in great part to a beautiful weather weekend in the UK (as the share was the customary 30+).  It will be interesting to see if the time-shift figures increase more substantially than usual due to this.

MUTTER’S SPIRAL takes on “Amy’s Choice”!  Did Amy choose right?  Why did this episode conjur up memories of the Colin Baker era?  Can we do a podcast that lasts less than an hour 2 weeks in a row? (Hint on #3 – the answer is NO).  Take a listen and find out!

We are now up on iTunes.  You can search for Mutter’s Spiral (yes, the apostrophe is correct – I need to start using it consistently).  11th Hour is up, and Vampires of Venice should be up momentarily if it’s not already.  We’ll then add going forward from there and then backfill with eps 2-5 once the new eps have ended.

Come check us out!

UK ratings seem to be holding steady in the 6.5-7 million overnight, 8+ million overall with timeshifting.  I’m still trying to find American ratings for “The Beast Below”.  “Victory of the Daleks” is currently #2 at iTunes US.

Next up in the US is the return of the Weeping Angels – “The Time of Angels”… should be great!
