If you’re a Doctor Who fan, you really should be listening to the Reality Bomb podcast. It earned a spot in my must-listen playlist right from the first episode. The monthly news magazine format and high production standards makes RB easy to like on first listen, but it’s the moving, emotional, thought-provoking writing that made me fall in love Continue Reading →
It’s that time again–new episodes of Doctor Who are here! Hooray! Can you tell I’m excited? 😉 First up is “The Bells of Saint John”, which has been described as either a James Bond-style thriller (squee!) or “The Idiot’s Lantern” rehashed (meh).

Well, that was…odd. Don’t want to be all spoilery, but let’s just say that it felt, well, weird for a Doctor Who episode and leave it at that.
