GG (1) - Steven and Erika watch the official BBC recon of “The Underwater Menace” Episode 1 together—and it’s the first time for us both! (Though Steven has seen another recon previously.) Togetherness at last! Host Erika Ensign and Steven Schapansky.

FF (3-4) - Erika and Steven stay up late to finish off “The Highlanders”, the story that introduces us to future-companion Jamie McCrimmon…but doesn’t really do anything else with him. Oh yeah, and we finally remember to acknowledge hitting 100 episodes! Host Erika Ensign and Steven Schapansky.

FF (2) - Steven and Erika laugh it up over Episode Two of “The Highlanders”. Troughton is really coming into his own! And we were too lazy to keep track and notice that this was our 100th episode, so the celebration is entirely here in the show notes. Happy 100th ep, everyone! Confetti! Party poppers! Silly hats! Especially silly hats. Host Erika Ensign and Steven Schapansky.

FF (1) - Erika and Steven dig into the last proper historical for a very long time. No moving pictures, but this ep moves along just fine! Host Erika Ensign and Steven Schapansky.
Sept. 13, 2017 · 00:18:15
EE (6) - Steven and Erika reach the end of the second Doctor’s first serial. And what a grisly end it is! People think Who is dark these days? Sheeeeesh. Host Erika Ensign and Steven Schapansky.
Sept. 11, 2017 · 00:23:22
EE (5) - Erika and Steven take a few moments to talk about their new project on the TeeVee feed: a Lazy Doctor Who spinoff podcast covering every episode of The Prisoner. You (at least some of you) asked for it, so here you go! Please enjoy In the Village. And then we talk about creepy Daleks and creepy rebels and awesome Polly and the Doctor. Host Erika Ensign and Steven Schapansky.

EE (4) - Steven and Erika reach what may be the best single Dalek episode ever—at least, according to Erika. Host Erika Ensign and Steven Schapansky.
Aug. 24, 2017 · 00:14:17
EE (3) - Erika and Steven are making Patrick Troughton’s first Doctor Who story last. It’s one episode at a time for us these days! Savor the goodness! Host Erika Ensign and Steven Schapansky.
Aug. 16, 2017 · 00:19:49
EE (2) - Steven and Erika continue watching the reconstruction of Patrick Troughton’s first Doctor Who story. And go on a brief (but sorta kinda related) tangent about Total Party Kill. Host Erika Ensign and Steven Schapansky.
Aug. 9, 2017 · 00:14:39
EE (1) - Erika and Steven tread into bold new territory: the Patrick Troughton era of Doctor Who! Host Erika Ensign and Steven Schapansky.
Aug. 6, 2017 · 00:38:31
DD (1-4) - Steven and Erika are joined by a couch interloper! Annette Wierstra provides a slightly new-Whoish perspective on this, the origin of the Cybermen. We also chat about the series 10 finale and the trailer for the 2017 Christmas special. It’s a truly momentous episode. We have completed the William Hartnell era, and the timing is perfect to tie in with the current series. Just…wow. Host Erika Ensign and Steven Schapansky with Annette Wierstra.

CC (4) - Erika and Steven finish off 1966’s “The Smugglers”, go on quite a tangent about the characterization of the Doctor over the years, celebrate the naming of Jodie Whittaker as the 13th Doctor, and finish up by teasing our next episode that will be a little different. We also use this very episode of the podcast itself (in the future! — our future, your present) to coerce help from next episode’s special guest. We hope. Host Erika Ensign and Steven Schapansky.
June 26, 2017 · 00:15:06
CC (3) - Steven and Erika try to power through the last two eps of this Doctor Who story from 1966. Erika fights valiantly to stay awake and mostly succeeds. Blame the travel schedule more than the episode. It’s still fun Who! Host Erika Ensign and Steven Schapansky.
June 17, 2017 · 00:15:19
CC (1-2) - Erika and Steven watch some more reconstructed Doctor Who and squee mightily over the fabness of Ben and Polly. Host Erika Ensign and Steven Schapansky.
May 21, 2017 · 00:35:47
BB (3-4) - After a longish break (to mourn Dodo?), Steven and Erika are back in the classic saddle and have finished off season 3 of Doctor Who. Host Erika Ensign and Steven Schapansky.
March 26, 2017 · 00:20:04
BB (2) - Erika and Steven say a sad farewell to Dodo, whose send-off is kinda appropriately pants. Poor Dodo. But hey, there’a new companion duo ready and willing to take her place, starting in the very next scene! Host Erika Ensign and Steven Schapansky.
March 18, 2017 · 00:21:24
BB (1) - Steven and Erika jump right into the swingin’ 60s. Computers! Connecting! To each other! The Inferno night club! Sad sailors and sexy secretaries! This Doctor Who episode has it all. Host Erika Ensign and Steven Schapansky.
March 10, 2017 · 00:25:16
AA (3-4) - Erika pushes through a migraine so she and Steven can finish off Steven (Taylor)’s final story. They are So Sad to see him go. They also marvel at the crucial turning point this story presents for the Doctor as a character. “The Savages” is a hidden gem! (We hope!) Host Erika Ensign and Steven Schapansky.
March 5, 2017 · 00:22:11
AA (2) - Steven and Erika continue to mightily enjoy their anniversary weekend and Doctor Who from 1966. “The Savages” elicits some powerful observations, and we’re only halfway through! Also, Erika is very sorry for burping during the podcast. :/ Host Erika Ensign and Steven Schapansky.

AA (1) - Erika and Steven celebrate their anniversary weekend in Calgary by watching reconstructed Doctor Who from 1966 in their hotel room. As is right and proper. Host Erika Ensign and Steven Schapansky.
