  1. Erika, it was wonderful to finally hear you on the show!

    But I really don’t understand why the three of you feel a need to perform mental gymnastics to come up with an excuse for “Dobby-Doctor.” The Master was using his “Laser Screwdriver” (insert eye-roll), right? Gee, it looks an awful lot like the Tissue-Compression-Eliminator, doesn’t it? So he zapped the Doctor with it and shrank him. He just had to stop shrinking him just shy of killing him. There’s your head canon explanation. Done!

    As for the complaint about the Tardis requiring six people to operate it, I may be mistaken, but I believe they cribbed that from a Big Finish story (I may be way wrong, but I think it was either “Time of the Daleks” or “Neverland”? I’m not sure, but it was definitely an Eighth Doctor story.). So if you don’t like that, then I don’t think it’s fair to rail at RTD about something he borrowed from Big Finish.

    At any rate, it’s good to hear you on RFS!
