Vengeance on Varos Commentary

The commentary tracks Phil and I recorded for the Colin Baker, um, classic 'Vengeance on Varos' is finally out.

It was recorded in September, which might as well be the 14th Century as far as I'm concerned.  I have very little memory of anything I said during this, though I think I was rubbish.

I also have a dim memory of saying, at one point, that I didn't dislike the 11th Doctor or Matt Smith... which is obviously nutty.  I suspect it was an overly-defensive reaction to Phil goading me.

Anyway, you can find it here

Listen to it.  I guess.  If you want to.

Shabcast 12 is out now

Here's a relatively brief (just over an hour) Shabcast featuring me, Holly, and Josh on the whole nasty Kesha / Dr Luke thing and the #FreedomForKesha hashtag, from very much a pro-Kesha perspective.  (Also, some Doctor Who chat.)  Please go here.  Beware Triggers and Spoilers.
