With Deep Breath and Into the Dalek, the Three Who Drool finally get around to reviewing new TV episodes of Doctor Who. We initially travel to Mancini’s Family Restaurant for the first story, armed with umbrellas against the missing roof and a tube of Pringles in the absence of even a children’s menu. Later, inspired partly by the Doctor and Clara diving into the Dalek but mostly by The Numskulls comic strip, Al and The Rev shrink themselves down to fit inside Doc’s bonded polycardboard box.
In the course of our discussion, we blow wide open Steven Moffat’s secret plan to use the first Doctor of the new regeneration cycle to reboot the series back to the era of the First Doctor. But not the First Doctor you may be thinking of.
We also look at the significance of the female thorax in Sontaran lore. The Rev tells us about a friend of his who once had a date with a gibbon. Al explores a possible narrative link between the Meddling Monk and the Mondasian Cybermen. Doc advocates punches in retaliation for slaps.
