Whovian Conversion: A Friendship Story


Ashford and Allison talk about Allison's new journey in the fandom of Doctor Who.  Allison recently finished series 1 of the new series.  Watching only an episode or two of Tennant, she is still unsure about the future, but just to give you a spoiler, Allison is almost done with season two, and she is really warming up to the tenth Doctor.  

This will not count as an episode.  Consider this an experimental bonus, holiday gift.  Don't worry, the Key to Time Episodes will all be given to your before 2017.  

I'm trying to do a small segment of the show, where Allison and I talk about her journey through the new series.  Please write in @sogallifrey on twitter to encourage Allison to keep watching and to join the podcast.  You can also write to us on the website: straightouttagallifrey.blogspot.com

Happy Holidays.  We love you guys.

Episode 22: Stones of Blood and Pancea


We are now in the third installment of the Key to Time series...Stones of Blood.  David Fisher is the writer of this one.  Mary Tamm is playing Romana, the Time Lady, which is the reason why we are covering this episode, of course.  

This was the 100th story or serial of Doctor Who.  But there is no time to celebrate, for we have killer, blood eating stones on the loose, and their stomachs are bottomless.  

 

Cerise and Ashford are also talking about the Big Finish series, Gallifrey.  Episode 5 of the 3rd series, Pancea.  It is a short one, so we would love your input.  Contact us on twitter.

The Meddling Monk


The Meddling Monk

The Meddling Monk is an interesting serial, for this is the introduction of the pseudo historical.  A pseudo historical is when events in time can actually be altered, changed...messed with!  The Monk, played by Peter Butterworth, is quite delightful, for Butterworth plays the character with a charm that rivals that of the Doctor.  In this four part story, the Doctor's edges have definitely rounded out, yet I still find the Monk interesting from a story standpoint.  This is the first story where we find out that other people from the Doctor's home planet have a TARDIS.  And unlike the Doctor, other people from the Doctor's home world are not as trustworthy as our major protagonist.  

The Doctor displays a sense of duty, removing a key item from the Monk's TARDIS.  Although some might say that the Doctor is being hypocritical, since he has taken such actions that could influence the course of time, I believe that his hearts are in the right place.  Unlike the Monk, who was willing to take aim at the Viking Fleet for his own personal goals.

Yes, I believe this serial marks a fix point in time where this show decided to head in a direction where the show's actions, as far as history is concerned, could make a major tear in the fabric of time.
