Much like Moffat, we had a clever plan. Also like Moffat, we didn’t execute that plan as well as we thought we would. We rushed to record a podcast for you right after the episode aired, then life got in the way of this episode’s editor. That being said, here you go dedicated Arrow of Time listener. These are our thoughts, feelings, hopes and dreams after watching “The Doctor Falls.”
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. Season 10 (series, if you’re English) has been a breath of fresh air, and Steven Moffat has been Moffat-ing it up. Peter Capaldi has fulfilled his promise as the Doctor, and yet it’s been spoiled that his time is ending. I could keep listing things, but there’s only so much space. Ride along with us as Matt, Joseph and Gabe examine “World Enough and Time” from top to bottom.
Saddle up everyone because the Arrow of Time team is taking on the latest of Who with “The Eaters of Light.” And they’ll also talk about eating light, and how much of a drag it is. Also they discuss a FAN-tastic fan theory sent in by one of OUR fans, the FANbulous Conrad Fannington! No that’s not his actual last name, but it would be amazing if it was!
Children get older, and we’re getting older, too. One way we can tell is that we can’t hold our liquor like we could at the beginning of the Moffat era! In any case, we had a lot of fun talking about “Empress of Mars,” and we hope you have some fun listening to us get silly on the podcast this week.
The fine folks at The Arrow of Time attempt to block out the overpowering radio frequencies and deliver their commentary on “The Lie of the Land,” the third installment of the Monk trilogy. We attempt to answer all those lingering questions like, “Will they use colors besides orange and blue?” or “How do you even find Walkmans these days?” and “Where is Tony Shalhoub?”

The week, Matt, Joseph, and Gabe get out their flashy lighty ropes to figure out all the possible outcomes of podcasting about “The Pyramid at the End of the World.” The result is probably the best they could come up with, so hold onto your glasses and methane experiments, cause we won’t stop until the world ends. Or we run out of podcast juice.
Joseph, Matt, and Gabe chat about Steven Moffat’s triumphant, or at least enjoyable-but-still-plot-hole-ridden episode, “Extremis.” I mean, this is his last season, he’s got to still be wanting to tell stories in his last ride right?
Anyway before we wake up and find out that Capaldi’s whole run was just an elaborate video game, here is a delightful WhoTube by Beta Dottore called “Doctor Who: I am The Doctor” – https://youtu.be/muw6SSbVNNY
