GPR Post HeaderWe all have that one friend. You know the one: the one you don’t let your other friends know you have; the one you only spend time with when no one is there to see. Some of us live in fear of (and some have already realized the horror of) the day when those two separate parts of our lives collide. Now, imagine your one friend is an alien whose idea of a compliment is telling you how relatively short your lifespan is, so you need not worry about your ‘unfortunate’ appearance.

This week, we discuss Episode 5 “The Caretaker”, and the wonderful character-driven story that arrived right on time. The Doctor and Mr. Danny “P.E.” Pink finally come face-to-face, and Clara is left trying to make the two men in her life find some way of coexisting. And all the while, a heavily armed killer robot threatens to eliminate the planet. Feels just like a Monday, right?

3 Thoughts on “The Caretaker”

  • Hear the most recent podcast last night. Just wanted to offer that the tune whistled by The Doctor to Clara was from “Another Brick In The Wall” — “we don’t need no education…”

    Now, on to say that I love the podcasts. It’s been a part of my weekly routine for a few weeks now, since I heard about it at DragonCon. Thanks.

  • Please check your levels next week. It was painfully difficult to listen with one of you way too low and another way too loud.
    I want to listen to the show but constantly riding the volume up and down is mentally exhausting.

    • Thanks for the feedback. I was made aware of this earlier this morning, but unfortunately my file didn’t save properly and there are whole chunks of audio missing. I am working on fixing it, but I had to go back to the raw audio and basically start all over. The corrected audio should be out later today or tonight. My apologies for the inconvenience.
