PODCAST: Face the Raven

So she's finally gone, face-down in the street.

Clara, then, eh? Certainly the most ambitious, far-reaching set of character arcs ever crammed into one perfectly fine but somewhat nondescript figure. In Doctor Who. Apart from The Doctor. An impossible girl, created by leaf and destroyed by bird and scattered throughout time and space and also she kissed Jane Austen, you know.

Joe and Chris get decidedly unemotional as they cover this well-received, somewhat overwrought bit of telly and produce probably the only Doctor Who podcast this week to throw in an entirely relevant reference to The Rage: Carrie 2

We record at Joe's this week so naturally every idling car outside sound like a passing Star Destroyer but on the plus side, neither of us play any instruments and there's a shocking moment where one of us has a thought that's best not spoken aloud and we DON'T THEN GO ON TO SPEAK IT ALOUD. An astonishing development, I'm sure you'll agree.

PODCAST: Sleep No More

It's a feature of this year's EHPodcast schedule that we've been pretty relaxed, and this is the MOST relaxed we've been this series. That said, we have a solid rule that we always get the podcast out before the next episode of Doctor Who airs, and we're holding true to that extremely slack promise.

We could have had it out sooner, but that would have only been possible by completely foregoing sleep and after this episode, we chose not to be absorbed by monsters made of our own eye boogers or something.

Join Joe & Chris as they offer an impromptu Metallica guitar masterclass, sing even more solo acapella than usual, institute a system of head-slapping, misunderstand the nature of Spider-Man villain Shocker and, of course, discuss whether or not Joe takes ladies home in the evening.

Wake up and listen to SLEEP NO MORE.

PODCAST: The Zygon Inversion

It's the conclusion of the mostly well-received "ZySIS" allegory and we find out what's in the box.

Join Joe and Chris as they talk about poorly thought-out liberal wet dream scenarios, Achewood, Paranormal Home Investigators (though, often in the singular by mistake), obvious writerly tricks, trigger warnings, Joe's imbalanced affairs and the EMS VCS 3 as well as, of course, turning THE ZYGON INVERSION inside out.

PODCAST: The Zygon Invasion

Let's just say right now that this is possibly the most tangent-filled of our famously tangent-filled podcast. It's not that we didn't like Peter Harness's allegorical episode (about what happens when you don't let Zygons be Zygons), but just that on this occasion we seem to rather want to talk about pretty much anything else including WWII-era ballistics technology, childhood toys, professional wrestlers (believe it or not), Stanley Kubrick and Scientology-based jokes with, sadly, inaccurate aircraft model numbers. Also featuring an eight minute voicemail from Eric and his car.

Despite the tangents above, we had a great time and we hope you will at least have an acceptable time when you listen to THE ZYGON INVASION.

PODCAST: The Woman Who Lived

It's all Me, Me, Me with some people and such is the case with The Woman Who Lived, the immortal adventurer, thief and diarist who befriends big cat men with really unimaginative names and has adventures that are slightly strangely directed and scrappily edited.

Breaking it all down this week are Joe and Chris. Well, during the moments when they aren't providing a Black Sabbath guitar masterclass, giving us a potted history of the band Bow Wow Wow, over-confidently mispronouncing "Kumail Nanjiani", or failing to give enough exposure to Joe's excellent "Gillan Machine" pun.

Wrap your immortal ears around THE WOMAN WHO LIVED.

PODCAST: The Girl Who Died

"A Wing And a Prayer" Productions presents one of the most casual EH? episodes ever, recorded relaxingly late in the week and decadently released even later than that, we get to grips with The Girl Who Died.

Not like that. Oh God, not like that.

PODCAST: Before the Flood

Hello! As part of our unofficial plan to represent the end of your Doctor Who podcast week, and thus almost certain to never discuss any point you've not heard run into the ground already, here we are to talk about Before the Flood, the cold war-era, poorly-defined villain extravaganza.

On the podcast this week you'll hear Nicky arrive with some milk, a familiar voice for fans of the Dharmalars and The Lost Initiative, a mention of QI's vinyl podcast and a rare plug for Chris's other ongoing podcast The Last Word: A Press Gang Introcast with Chris & Alirio (sorry).

Heck, instead of reading a list of what is and isn't in the podcast, find out the hard way by listening to BEFORE THE FLOOD
