MUTTER'S SPIRAL Podcast continues with its Series 8 review - and this time, we've got Kim & Sage from to help us!  They joined us to talk about "Deep Breath", so it made sense to us to have them back post-season.  They add their customary wit, charm and passion for Doctor Who to the pod, and the most fun type of chaos ensues!  We talk about their favorite moments and episodes (and LEAST favorites) as well as the big arcs for the Doctor & Clara in Series 8.  There's also an excellent Paul McGann impersonation from Kim, as she relates tales of interviewing and meeting him at LI Who.  Sage & Kim bring a lot of insight in their recap on HOF, and we're lucky to have them back to talk more WHO!  AND, it was recorded on Doctor Who Birthday #51, so that's an extra bonus!  Please join us for a boisterous and fun Doctor Who discussion!

Doctor Who Series 8 is history, but MUTTER'S SPIRAL Podcast is not done talking about it yet!  Join John & Will as they dissect this season: how is Peter Capaldi as the 12th Doctor?  What did we think of Clara's arc this season?  How about Danny & Missy?  How did the show do at building these season-long arcs and what did we like and dislike about them?  Plus, our favorite episodes!  No Trivia this week, though.

Doctor Who Series 8 Finale time!  There's "Death in Heaven", and John & Will are back to break down the episode and talk about it!   Dive in to the 2 hours of discussion - we talk Doctor, Clara, Danny, Missy, Osgood, Kate, the Brig, the Cybermen, thematic arcs, annoying plot holes, sadness over fallen comrades, and so much more.  Plus, there's trivia, which includes one of my (Will) better pulls on a right answer (balanced by my forgetting the answer to a question John had previously asked).  We really enjoyed talking about this, and we hope you'll enjoy listening!!

START THE CLOCK: We've got more than 66 seconds worth of discussion on the new Doctor Who episode "Mummy on the Orient Express" - did we enjoy this as a faithful replica of what an Agatha Christie story is?  What did we make of Perkins?  And, of course, discussion of Clara's about-face from her "wobble" - "Give me PLANETS"!  Plus, Trivia and some news!  Come have a listen, please?

MUTTER'S SPIRAL Podcast returns to discuss "The Caretaker", episode 6 of Series 8 (or Series 34) of Doctor Who, written by Gareth Roberts & Steven Moffat.  It's the cataclysmic first meeting of the Doctor and Clara's new friend, Danny Pink, and Clara's in the middle.  So, there's a LOT to talk about this week - we have an interesting discussion with 2 very different viewpoints on this episode, the behaviors involved, and how it struck us.  It's the favorite episode of the series for one of us, and for the other, it was a journey from initial dislike to great enjoyment of the episode with some issues still.  Plus, news and trivia!  Please take care and listen! ;-)
