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
DETAINED & THE METAPHYSICAL ENGINE, or WHAT QUILL DID
Saturday, 19 November 2016
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 12-string guitar playing & Sikhism and discuss:

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:
NIGHTVISITING and CO-OWNER OF A LONELY HEART
Thursday, 10 November 2016
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:
FOR TONIGHT WE MIGHT DIE and THE COACH WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO
Monday, 11 January 2016
Believe it or not, this is the most punctual Eleventh Hour Podcast Christmas Special ever, beating the previous winner by an entire two weeks .
In our rush to bring you this, there have been compromises - it's a shorter episode than usual and we barely pick apart the episode at all, beyond making our opinions of it very clear. It doesn't help that we're also both really ill. As you can tell, neither Joe or Chris are marketing geniuses but it you've enjoyed former episodes then we hope you like this one, too!
It's... THE HUSBANDS OF RIVER SONG
Tuesday, 15 December 2015
It's the now-traditional "relaxed" final episode of a series of EHPodcast. Not because we're secretly drunk but because it's showing up days after you might expect given the scheduling of the rest of the run.
No mind, it's here now and - shock upon shock - it contains that rare EH? occurrence, the dreaded DIFFERENCE OF OPINION (brrr) wherein Joe and Chris - amazingly - don't feel exactly the same way about an episode. However, we muddle through without murdering each other, and that's true friendship.
Along with a celebrity guest cast (well, Donald and MB) we break down Hell Bent in probably the most lax fashion imaginable and actually come to some conclusions and stuff. It's ...riveting..., trust us.
Listen to HELL BENT and we'll see you after Christmas! x

Something that both Joe and Chris are coming to appreciate is how frequently the team in charge of Doctor Who pull a bold experiment. We prefer it even more when it works.
An episode consisting over 90% of Capaldi completely alone and in one single environment could be a huge, boring backfire or an exceptional tour-de-force. And if we can stop talking about musical instrument infidelity, novelty groinwear, Dark Souls, the stupidness of the English language and, of course, the Ultimate Warrior's astonishing death timing, we may even tell you what we thought.
So, strap in and prepare for some occasionally dark chat, (as well as a song called Crystal even though the episode itself says "diamond" and even that's not the stuff the wall is made of) as we become HEAVEN SENT.
