  1. The Beatles song you were referring to about being slower could be “She’s Leaving Home”. The stereo version that most people are familiar with is noticeably slower and at a lower pitch than the mono version. Since the mono version was considered by the band to be the definitive one, it’s safe to say that most people are familiar with the “wrong” version.

  2. The last letter RTD wrote was ‘N’. The last line is “The New Man”. Everything after that was written by Stephen Moffat.

  3. Hi! I just thought I’d drop by and say thanks for making such a great podcast! Yours is by far my favorite DW-related podcast and I think a big part that is due to the way your conversations manage to be both fairly intelligent and funny.

    Because my parents are clueless when it comes to operating any piece of technology developed after 1986, I spent a large chunk of this afternoon getting some really obnoxious viruses, adware, and strangely malfunctioning programs off of their computer. Luckily, I had your two latest podcasts on my iPod and decided to get caught up while I worked. Because of you guys, not only did I *not* put my fist through the monitor and shout at my parents, I actually ended up laughing quite a bit.

    Thanks for being awesome!

  4. Very enjoyable show this week. I really liked how you discussed the points thoroughly and presented differing opinions on the subjects, unlike the usual RTD bashfest.

    One quick question though….

    In the THR report about Fox possibly readying a US version a Torchwood, there’s a line at the end that says “[Jane] Tranter might try to reboot “Doctor Who” for U.S. audiences…” Obviously this is a horrible idea, but it’s the first I’ve heard of it. You all seem to know much more about the behind the scenes workings…any thoughts on the probability of this or where it came from?

  5. Hey, just catching up on the last few podcasts that I’ve missed. Great job by the way, ya’ll are awesome! I just wanted to chime in and say that I’m a female fan (and an early twenty-something American to boot, so definitely came into Doctor Who with the new series, and absolutely no Who related background), and I love both the new and classic series. In fact, “Pyramids of Mars” was the first classic serial I ever saw, and I absolutely loved it. Certainly different things appeal to different people, but I wouldn’t stereotype all female fans as being only drawn to the “emotional” aspects of the new series. Often times I find the classic series, even in all it’s cheese and camp, far more entertaining.

    Anyways, love the show (all of it, ’63 to present), and love the podcast! Keep up the good work guys!
