This podcast is is two parts. First comes our look back at last weekend’s Doctor Who Appreciation Society convention, “Capitol 2” – the first convention for Doc and Mark. Listeners are advised to arm themselves with ear defenders to protect themselves from the avalanche of u-turns as Doc takes back everything he’s said previously about conventions and autographs. Gasp as Allan reveals behind-the-scenes secrets. Go aaaaah as Doc and Mark fall head over heels in love with several people. Wince in sympathy as you hear why Hayden had to pull out at the last minute.

Then we take a look at “Thin Ice” and “Knock Knock”, the next two new episodes in Series 10 of Doctor Who.
