PODCAST: Amy's Choice

Five years after the events of the Eleventh Hour Podcast, Joe and Chris have settled down in peaceful Upper Podcastshire, but one day their rural idyll is shattered by the arrival of A Badly Thought Out Metaphor Based On The Doctor Who Episode "Amy's Choice". Nope. No idea where to go with that one. Don't blame us, it's late and we aren't very clever.

PODCAST: Flesh and Stone


Battling against the odds referred to by Joe/Horatio in his lovely update explaining why the episode is going to be later than usual (although we deliberately don't have a scheduled release day), here it is after all.

Still - you should have a look at the previous entry to see the watch photograph that we mention on this episode.

Enjoy in good health, and see if you agree that this is possibly our strangest playlist to date.

Sorry. I'm So Sorry

Thanks to Chris pulling some frankly astonishing, and muchly appreciated, feats of editing in the past few weeks it's only fair that he should get a week of rest sometime. Due to both of us being dog-tired on Sunday and to me being at band practice on Monday we didn't even get round to recording till Tuesday this week. And, since Chris goes to great lengths to bring you the high-quality, modulated, sweary Eleventh Hour Podcast that you all apparently love so much, I'm afraid that this week's episode will not be up till later tonight. It may even be up tomorrow but Chris has promised it will go live before this Saturday's episode, and I trust him to stick to his word. I know you're all good, patient people and will honestly not mind that the episode is a little later than usual (ooh we have been spoiling you) but it's polite of us to let you know. For my part, I promise that it'll be a cracking episode.

In the meantime, why not look at this image sent to us by hopefully future-participant of EH? Seb aka Vislor Merlot? It's intriguing and will be discussed in the episode. LOOK AT THE WATCHES!

If you prefer flippant explanations for lateness, we got stuck in a time vortex and had to live three days in an alternate universe as the same person. Getting to work was a right pain in the arse.

Rampant Speculation about 'Flesh And Stone'

So tonight we may find out some answers about the contractually-obliged-t0-be-called-enigmatic River Song (though Ms. Song will also accept 'mysterious'), that strange crack that's been popping up everywhere and what exactly Scotland's role in all of this is. OK, perhaps not that last one. But here at The Eleventh Hour Podcast, we've been coming up with our own theories about what this all means, and we'd like to share them with you before we're proved horribly wrong.

1. River Song is Romana from another dimensions, who remembers the Doctor but nothing else, and who was imprisoned for not returning to Gallifrey (which still exists in her universe). The Doctor would be annoyed at her jumping between dimensions at not telling him about alternate Gallifrey, which is a fun place filled with candy and bunnies.

2. River Song is a future version of the Doctor, who turns female after receiving a strong burst of Zectronic energy.

3. River Song is the Rani, who survived the Time War due to err, special Rani reasons.

4. River Song is a member of the popular Doctor Who podcast 'The Eleventh Hour Podcast', from the future.

5. River Song is actress Alex Kingston, from an alternate dimension. And the future.

6. River Song is from a future Scotland, trapped in a dimensional plane, with plans to take over the rest of the universe. The cracks are doorways into Future Scotland, which are following Amy around in the hope of gaining her help, and getting to the Doctor.

7. The cracks are the work of a vengeful pan-dimensional plasterer, who was been somewhat out of work since the events of Army of Ghosts/Doomsday.

8. Something about Rory - he's the creator of the angels/the master/the Rani/a member of the Eleventh Hour Podcast.

9. Hey, how come those disgraced Time Lords in 'The End of Time' were called "The Weeping Angels of Old"?

10. Actually, ignore that. That was stupid.

11. SLIGHT SPOILERS: The forest of the Byzantium is actually the forest that the Vashta Nerada are from in the Library two-parter, in another massive Moffat wad blow.

12. Amy was just REALLY unobservant during 'The Stolen Earth'. And has not asked any questions since.

13. That's enough for now.

Enjoy the episode, folks!
