The Weekly Stuff Podcast #95 - Doctor Who Series 8 Premiere Review & Discussion

It’s time for another episode of The Weekly Stuff Podcast with Jonathan Lack & Sean Chapman, a weekly audio show that explores the worlds of film, video gaming, and television. Remember to subscribe for free in iTunes by following this link!

It is a longstanding tradition on the podcast that when a new episode of Doctor Who airs, we talk about it in depth. And with the Series 8 premiere having debuted last night, giving us our first good look at Peter Capaldi’s 12th Doctor, there is a lot to talk about. For instance: This is a major moment in the history of the series, but is it any good? Has Steven Moffat gotten over his worst instincts as a writer? And will Clara ever have an even partially consistent character? Listen to find out.

Since this is the Doctor Who season premiere, it’s the only topic for this week’s episode, but don’t worry – future episodes will have plenty of other topics of discussion, and we usually keep the Doctor Who talk contained to the end of the show.

    Episode 2 - OK - "Inner Space"-like episode
    Episode 3 - Terrible - "Robin Hood" episode
    Episode 4 - Great
    Episode 5 - Great
