PODCAST: The Hungry Earth and Cold Blood
One post, two episodes. There are reasons, and there are reasons why the playlist for The Hungry Earth features so low down in the comments AND why a couple of the songs are oddly titled (but they're pretty famous and shouldn't keep you guessing too long and if all else fails, they're on the Spotify playlist) but those aren't important right now, let's just get on with the lizardy business:
THE HUNGRY EARTH
This is the sound of EH? on disappointment. Not that The Hungry Earth was a bad episode as such, but more that it didn't really provoke much reaction from us in either direction. Still, come with us as we plumb the depths, mining the episode for all it's worth and finding out if there's anything much beneath the surface. Also - hear us attempt classic Silurian voices. It doesn't go well.

COLD BLOOD aka SILURIAN SMACKDOWN 2020 (AD) Chris Chibnall offers us the chance to compare 2010 Who with 1970 Who with results that might not necessarily be deemed successful. However, at the time of recording, there was a gulf between Joe and Chris's opinion on the episode leading to the proposed auditory brawl above.
In the end, though, we find ourselves reaching a consensus by dint of how well written we thought the episode was. But hey, let's not spoil it here - listen and find out if we loved it or not.
