OMG!  WTF?  WHAT?  WHAT?  MUTTER’S SPIRAL Podcast is AGOG over the action-packed, jaw-dropping penultimate episode of Series 10 (and part 1 of the series finale) “World Enough and Time”, written by Steven Moffat and directed by Rachel Talalay!  We will discuss all of the amazing goings-on from this shattering episode.  John was mesmerized by the impact of the story, while the amount of pre-episode spoilage I’d suffered muted my reactions to a varying degree.  We’ll go over everything – the great performances and direction, the surprises, the revelations, and where we think the finale will go from here.  Plus, there’s trivia, as always!

Please have a listen!

MUTTER’S SPIRAL Podcast this week talks all about “The Eaters of Light”, episode 10 of Series 10 (or 36) of DOCTOR WHO.  This episode marks the return of classic series writer Rona Munro (Writer of “Survival”, the final 7th Doctor story, which was also the final story of the first run of the series) to the WHO family.  It’s a story of Picts and Romans and Crows and Locusts which we both quite enjoyed.  We’ll talk about what we liked as well as what could have been a bit better for us.  We’ll also talk about how things stand heading into the HUGE 2-part finale that starts next week.  Plus, there’s trivia and a bit of news!

MUTTER’S SPIRAL Podcast this week talks all about “Empress of Mars”, Series 10, Episode 9 written by Mark Gatiss, a delightful homage to Classic Doctor Who.  The story has Ice Warriors, Victorian Soldiers on Mars, and even a cameo by Alpha Centauri herself!  Plus, some interesting Missy interaction to discuss and ponder what it could mean for the rest of the season.  Plus, there’s trivia (including a failure on my part that still has me marinating in shame) and news.

NOTE/CORRECTION on the NEWS bit – we talk about Russell T Davies giving a quote about the next Doctor.  I got the quote wrong on the podcast – I read it as “I know who HE (the next Doctor) is” instead of the correct “I know who IT is” (that has been cast as the next Doctor).  So, that’s my screwup (based on my belief that the BBC will go male AGAIN, due to their hidebound stodginess), and I apologize.  My hope is that I’ll be proven wrong about the BBC (and to be fair, I’m OFTEN WRONG) and can happily proclaim as much in the future.

MUTTER’S SPIRAL Podcast this week addresses “The Lie of the Land”, the finale to the Monks trilogy, written by Toby Whithouse and directed by Wayne Yip.  We were both less than enthused by this episode individually as well as in its role as the culmination of the three-part story.  We will go in depth about what didn’t work at all for us (as well as some stuff we did like – Missy, Bill’s Mom).  John also makes some good points about how and why the trilogy doesn’t hold together for him (nor me).  I lament the loss of the early-season momentum and express my dislike of the Monks in general as foes for the Doctor.  There’s also trivia, of course!
