Hey Fandom! Those themes of tolerance, kindness and understanding over the past 50 odd years – Which bits did you miss? Dave returns, and he and Pete wade into the murky quagmire of post-13 fallout. On the way we salute this month’s fallen and add our thoughts on the Christmas to come.
All that Beyond the Sofa…
Here We Go Again, but it Feels Different This Time! Hours after the big reveal Peter and Jono wake-at-the-break to discuss the enormity of the arrival of the Thirteenth Doctor, Jodie Whittaker, and the small matter of the future of Doctor Who. Caution: May Contain Reactions!
Download hereDeus Ex Lachryma! Beyond the Sofa returns with Series 10’s two-part finale, featuring Mondasian Cybermen, Missy, the Master, models, magpies, and more minutes than we’d normally fit into an episode! Joining Peter on the Sofa is Zeus Plug’s own Machiavellian magistrate, Mr Jono Park!
Holy Rona’s Roamin’ Romans on Ice Batman! Pete and Dave travel back in time to review what appears to be the same story twice, with Doctor Who’s Empress of Mars, and The Eaters of Light. Olympus Mons or Ludicrous Maximus? Find out – Beyond the Sofa!
Chaos ensues as Dave tries to rewrite history for the latest Doctor Who episodes, while Peter patiently calls shenanigans. The Pyramid at the End of the World, and The Lie of the Land are taken to bits, but will they form a great Lego structure – or just stab feet as they are left on the carpet?
Pete and Dave take on perils of Thin Ice and Knock Knock after a brief diversion when Peter watches the wrong version of Guardians of the Galaxy. We then buy half a pound of tuppenny rice, and ponder just who is the monkey or the weasel?
Unfortunately this episode was bedeviled a few gremlins and you may notice some issues with the sound, and Dave’s brain falling out about 10 minutes in. Don’t worry we aren’t pod-fading and normal (or, as abnormal as usual) service will resume soon…ish.
On a very personal note farewell to New Zealand Doctor Who fan, engineer and friend Darrell Patterson. Farewell Darrell – You will be greatly missed.
We mentioned Mr Jim Moon’s Hypnogoria tribute to John Hurt findable here: Hypnogoria 51 – Tribute to John Hurt. As always Jim is a master at this kind of thing and we thoroughly recommend trying anything he does.
