moffat_voodoo

It’s a new year and a fresh new void of Doctor Who episodes.  Luckily for us a whole lot of news has been popping up and your plucky friends at The Arrow of Time are here to talk about it.  Join Matt, Gabe, and special guest Rachel as they discuss Moffat, our future leader Chris Chibnall, and Chibnall based entertainment.  It’s a WHOOOT!

Our WhoTube this week is a chilling venture, highlighting the more frighting moments of Doctor Who, titled “Doctor Who Horror Story” by user Voordeel.  https://youtu.be/ssHvW_dW76o

124 – Mr. and Mrs. Who

Christmas is a time for loved ones, special memories and Doctor Who. Usually, Doctor Who Christmas specials come with a bit of death, and “The Husbands of River Song” doesn’t disrupt the status quo. At least this time they were mostly bad guys that got coal for Christmas. Spoilers! To unwrap our thoughts just listen to Matt, Joseph and Gabe delve into the tangled history (and future) of the Doctor and River, whether or not humans can become Time Lords and Ladies and how days can seem like years on Dirillium. We might also give some props to a certain show runner. Don’t make puddles… everything will be alright.

First we have “River Song Fan Music Video” by Richard Pearce (https://youtu.be/szc_3raxwuE). Then we add some spice with “Peppermint Winter Doctor Who” by SparkyDragonSlayer (https://youtu.be/eU4yYv2q_2A).

123 – The Season of Hybrids

double-dareAnother year, another series, another podcast where we gather together and talk about what we’ve been talking about for the past several months already.  In this the season of The Hybrid, Matt, Joseph, Gabe, and Susan act as your personal audio tour guides through a series of two-parters, replicas, and twinsies.

Your WhoTube, “Doctor Who: Clara Oswald Farewell (Series 9) – Tribute Trailer” by user It’s Smaller On The Outside, is a beautifully brilliant summation of Series 9 with a focus on Clara:  https://youtu.be/LQdGe8_6INw

122 – The Big Goodbye

We’ve all heard the expression that saying goodbye is hard to do. That is especially true for a certain Time Lord we all know and love. In the series nine finale, “Hell Bent,” we look at the Doctor and his literal trek to the ends of time to try to save his friend. Along the way, we have to deal with Moffat’s potty mouth, Rassilon’s consistent badness, and [the most important question] of how on Earth Clara and Me can get away with a TARDIS disguised as an American diner if they go to Ancient Egypt. Timeless questions for the pocket time traveler.

This week, our WhoTube is “Twelve & Clara: Immortality is everyone else dying” by Rose (not Tyler):  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JHJhYhjJ00E

Review: Hell Bent – The Doctor, Clara and the Never Ending Story

By: Gabe @nospokenwords

All things must end. It is an axiom accepted by scientists, philosophers, Mister Spock and our own dear Clara Oswald. It is not a sentiment shared by the Doctor. At least not this Doctor, this time. At its core, “Hell Bent” is an episode about Doc 12 and his assertion that “summer never has to end” if you steal a time machine.

On first viewing, “Hell Bent” seemed like a mess, tied together loosely by scenes of the Doctor telling a story to a woman who looks like Clara. However, subsequent viewings and consideration reveal that this is an episode that has a lot of meat and manages to succeed in spite of itself and the musings of writer extraordinaire Steven Moffat.

121 – The Prisoner of Azbantium

Nobody puts baby in a corner! Especially when that baby is a 2,000 year old Time Lord and the corner is a flummoxing castle that makes Hogwarts seem like a safe space. How will the Doctor get out of this one? Time will tell. Or, if you prefer not taking the long way ’round, you can listen to us tell you! It’s a whopper of a podcast about the penultimate episode of the series, “Heaven Sent.”

For this week’s WhoTube, Matt found “Eighth Doctor Tribute/Larger Than Life” by The Renegade Time Lord: http://youtu.be/_r-sGcJ7qSY

120 – A Nightmare on Trap Street

Rigsy

Well, it’s that time again. The air is crisp, the leaves have changed, variations of turkey are being served, and we end the run of another companion… or do we!?  It’s hard to say… or is it!?  One thing is for sure, Joseph, Matt, and Gabe aren’t buying into the hype just yet as they pick apart Face The Raven.”  So listen to The Arrow of Time sift through this episode as some might ravage through the stuffing from their Tofurky, or Turducken, or their Toduckahedron (that’s a chicken-duck-turkey with 12 faces made of tofu).

Be sure to get your full serving of WhoTube with “The Doctor & Clara Oswald ‘I Keep Coming Back For More‘” by YouTube user KatnissWinchester: http://youtu.be/V3GnIe3GWig
