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.
