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!
