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!

We’ve hit triple digits!  It’s podcast #100 on MUTTER’S SPIRAL!  We’re back to talk about “The Zygon Inversion” – did it overcome issues & problems with part 1?  Are we filled with happiness and relief?  HOW GOOD WAS CAPALDI AND THAT SPEECH?  What’s next for Clara?  Lots of questions, and we’ve got answers, all in podcast form!  Plus, there’s TRIVIA, as always!

AND, what special thing did we do for our 100th?  (Nothing – come on, you know it, it’s a miracle the podcast was properly recorded the first time).  But, seriously, we have a blast doing this, and we thank EVERYONE who listens!!  It’s our pleasure to do this, and we hope it has been enjoyable for you to listen to.

Here’s to the NEXT 100!

ZYGONS, ZYGONS EVERYWHERE!  Mutter’s Spiral Podcast is back talking about “The Zygon Invasion”, episode 7 of Series 9 of DOCTOR WHO (and, yes, part 1 of 2)!  It’s a shorter podcast, since it’s half of a very plot-heavy story from Peter Harness.  We don’t talk plot much, as that’s left to unravel in part 2, but we do talk about the political parallels between this story and “real life” as well as a lot of elements that did NOT work for me (Will) – I’m full of disdain.  John enjoyed the story more, but he was not comfortable with the political messages raining down upon the viewers, either.  We’re both hoping that part 2 really brings the story home in a successful way, so we decided to wait until next week for a more full discussion of the story.

It’s interesting listening (we hope), but it’s not as positive and sunny as our usual podcasts.  Of course, there’s also TRIVIA!
