PODCAST: The Witch's Familiar

Hello! We're back! BOTH OF US! You have been warned.

Joe and Chris get all face-to-face to discuss Dalek sewers, Missy's dancing, Witch identities, eyes, sunglasses and Chris Langham. Enough of this write up, get stuck into THE WITCH'S FAMILIAR.

EMERGENCY PODCAST: The Magician's Apprentice

Hello again, friends. Here is where you'd have found the all-guns-blazing, two-hour-long and fully triumphant return of THE ELEVENTH HOUR PODCAST, had evil computers not conspired to rob your ears of this wonderful treat.

Instead, because we really do appreciate our feedback contributors, and because we didn't want to leave the lovely listener with nothing - or at least no explanation - we hope you'll be happy with this brief, feedback heavy, emergency update produced via the rare combination of the latest computer audio technology and a 1995 Mazda 626.

Normal service to be resumed next week, until then, here's our emergency podcast for...

PODCAST: Last Christmas

Merry February, kids! Believe it or not, this is the second most punctual EHPodcast Christmas special ever, which is probably nothing to be proud of.

Last Christmas was a strange one. A tangerine dream of Santa, headcrabs, loss of self and loved ones and not getting rid of a companion again.

In a bizarre break with tradition, we don't have much to say here in the info, so go ahead and join Joe, Chris and, briefly, Nicky as we pull apart LAST CHRISTMAS.

For the screencap, we are once again indebted to KISSTHEMGOODBYE.NET

PODCAST: Death in Heaven

In keeping with Eleventh Hour Podcast tradition, the final podcast in a season's run has had a leisurely release. That being said, this is relatively snappy by our regular standards.

Death in Heaven, then, is the slightly incomprehensible series 8 finale in which Miss Master and the Cybermen hook up to revivify the dead solely so they can become slaves to whoever owns the controls. You've gotta wonder what's in it for the Cybermen but actually, like most Doctor Who villains, they've never been the best at nefarious plans.

Join Joe, Chris and Donald in a cup as we discuss the evasive nature of language, bad voiceovers, what the correct response is to a permission to squee, and - briefly and for what we hope is the only time - a particular bodily fluid.

PODCAST: Dark Water

Ooh, that sneaky dark water. Hiding the truth until just the perfect moment, to wring maximum dramatic tension out of a scenario. According to the BBC, the perfect moment in question is in a trailer shoved on to the end of the previous week's episode, thus rendering both the reveal and - it appears, given the events so far - the entire time Steven Moffat spent coming up with the dark water concept entirely pointless.

Still, despite that, much to enjoy. Some great Jenna action, a shock departure (for now), the spirit of Malcolm Tucker, more of the current, unappealing design of a classic villain and THAT.

If you've seen the episode, you'll know what THAT is and how you feel about it. Well, it's done now. No going back.

Join Joe and Chris as they kick the table the recorder is on, talk over Donald, reveal their thoughts on THAT and nail their PC-brigade colours to the mast.

Surprise! Welcome to the super-secret pilot of Joe & Chris Do a Thing. We're often asked if we'd consider doing episode of The Eleventh Hour Podcast about things other than Doctor Who while that series is off the air but we've never quite felt it was the right move for something that entirely identifies as a Doctor Who podcast, so here's our elegant solution.

Joe & Chris Do a Thing is intended to run completely separately from EH? on an entirely different feed but, since you're the only audience we have, we wanted to see what you thought of this long, spoilery trawl through the Saw movie franchise, just in time for Halloween.

If this isn't your scene, no worries, just ignore it, or delete it and forget it ever happened but if you have any comments at all, we'd love to hear from you.

PODCAST: In the Forest of the Night

The Doctor fights trees. Or rather doesn't. In the single greatest arboreal threat since The Happening, these leafy bastards crop up out of nowhere and with the help of their fairy brethren actually save us from being fried alive, then bugger off.


Well, thanks for that, Frank Cottrell-Boyce. In the Forest of the Night is a genuine curio, an episode you'll hear more than once on this podcast described as "not 100% successful" but which coasts by on some pretty effortless charm (even as it stirs up a medication controversy).

Join Joe and Chris as they cryptically hint at something else they have planned, explain why you shouldn't get the bus home if you have particularly awful spelling, do a teeny bit of belching and largely don't know what the hell to make of this episode of Doctor Who.
