Episode 88: The Impossible Astronaut/Day of the Moon


Siskoid and Ashford discuss Steven Moffat's The Impossible Astronaut/Day of the Moon, the two part opener for series 6.  There are so many beautifully directed episodes in this series, and this two part opener is no exception.  Moffat takes the timey wimey and ups it up to...11.  Sorry.  The T.A.R.D.I.S. crew's adventure is in America.  The United States of America to be specific.  And now, for the first time as far as a television broadcast, the Silence is introduced.

Ashford really enjoys this villain.  What are your thoughts?  Are they all style and no substance?  Or are they actually worthy foes for the Doctor and company?  Did we mention this two part story includes Richard Millhous Nixon?

Episode 76: The Aztecs


Siskoid and Ashford discuss The Aztecs by John Lucarotti, a true historical where the Doctor admonishes Barbara Wright about "messing" with time.  This first, on air, T.A.R.D.I.S. team are separated quite a bit, covering more ground of this landscape where the Aztecs resided.  

Was Barbara right for trying to change this culture with her relatively modern, English ways?  Perhaps stepping back and allowing History to take its course is not the right thing to do?

Episode 75: The Time of Angels/Flesh and Stone


 

The Time of Angels and Flesh and Stone by Steven Moffat are quite a feat.  Bring back River Song and The Weeping Angels, along with High Definition, The Doctor, Amy, and the Church, Moffat really flexed his creative muscle, displaying the direction the show was going from this point on.  What else do we want, right?  Siskoid and Ashford discuss this two part story to great length.  We're talking a little over an hour.  Ashford mentions this was the episode that made him buy into Matt Smith and being a Whovian all together.

Episode 73: Marco Polo


 

How does a podcast talk about a serial of Doctor Who where the actual story doesn't exist?  In a word.  Easily.  Ashford read the novelization to prep before the show, while Siskoid, of the Siskoid Blog of Geekery, revisited the reconstruction.  One can not go wrong either way.  

Ashford hopes that one day this seven part serial can be found with its lavish costumes, exotic locations, and realistic angst and peril.  Electronic Mail us your thoughts at prydonian.post@gmail.com or visit our website www.wrightonnetwork.com
