PODCAST: The Pilot


Doctor Who is back with, at least for now, a near-continuity-free clean sweep. This won't last, but it's provided another new jumping-on episode for new or lapsed fans as well as largely being pretty popular with the people who were already/still here.

Also back are Joe and Chris, once again in a fashionably late episode in which they certainly talk about Doctor Who, drink fizzy drinks, share a nice kiss and controversially come out AGAINST bigots. Way to finally nail those colours to the mast, lads.

Join these two on their continuing adventures through a cavalcade of cartoonish, maniacal dictators and fascist automatons. They also sometimes watch Doctor Who.

PodCLASS Finale: The Lost


It's the final bit of deck clearing here at EHPodcast as we make room in our schedule for the new series of Doctor Who.

However, this has come at the right time as Class is finally scheduled to appear on BBC America and, reviewing this episode has made us realise how much we enjoyed the series in the long run.

Have fun, and if you're watching along with the BBCA broadcasts, remember to come back and find us.

PODCAST: The Return of Doctor Mysterio


Yes! It's Christmas in April. Normally these updates are written in the third person, or as "we" but on this occasion, it's definitely Chris here apologizing to you for the tardiness of this podcast (not to mention the TARDISness). Recorded in January, it's finally limped out when my hand was forced by an upcoming new series of Doctor Who. Not to mention that the Class finale podcast is also planned to arrive prior to then.

I don't have good excuses so I won't offer them. The podcasts absolutely won't suffer from this problem all the time the series is on and I, and indeed we, hope you'll enjoy this late festive offering.

I chose not to go with a Christmas-themed playlist, though, as I figured that'd be taking the piss.

PodCLASS: Detained & The Metaphysical Engine, or What Quill Did


It's time for Class's one-two punch. The bottle episode and the ludicrous epic romp across reality, both occurring at the same time.

It's a bold move and nets some of the best moments of the series so far. Join Joe & Chris in this fashionably late entry of EH? as we get stuck into

PodCLASS: Brave-ish Heart


We've probably reached the point where these no longer count as surprises. Also, this one is late, to further play the "not a surprise" card. April and Ram go on a heart hunt while blossom eats peoples' faces and April's dad gets to be some kind of crap hero. Yup, it's Class all right.

Join Joe and Chris as they bluff their way in both 12-string guitar playing & Sikhism in order to discuss:

PodCLASS: Nightvisiting & Co-Owner of a Lonely Heart


Surprise again!

Okay, probably a bit less surprising, though this episode of EHPodcast does feature a rare bit of outside broadcast (as a result, our carefully cultivated music bed only lasts half the episode. You'll have to think of your own songs for Co-Owner of a Lonely Heart. You should be able to come up with at least one.

In the series, there are some conversations with dead people and nice gooey vines all over the option, as well as some gauzy sex and all manner of bonkers stuff that doesn't quite make sense.

Simple write-up this week, let's just get stuck in to:

PodCLASS: For Tonight We Might Die & The Coach With the Dragon Tattoo


Surprise!

Well, before we get into the surprise, let's try some unsurprising news: this podcast was recorded weeks ago, in two sessions and was intended for release as two separate episodes but Chris took ages to get the episode done. I know, right? Unprecedented.

Anyway, here we are with our first looks at Class, the not-for-kids kids' spinoff of Doctor Who. Neither episode contains our most in-depth analysis, partially to do with our own podcast rust but also, it must be said, because of the content of the episodes themselves.

But perhaps we've said too much? Get stuck in as we look at the first two episodes of Class:
