For the hardest of hardcore fans
Three men "of a certain age" discuss the wide scope and the minutiae of the classic British series, with a careful and self-reflective sprinkling of new Who. Enjoyable even when I can't follow every reference.
Really enjoying it
Not pretentious or gimmicky, but wonderfully entertaining and interesting commentary.
You can listen to it!
As a fan of the new series, who’s maybe a little…curious about the old series, this is a great appetite whetter for me. They are obviously geeks, but very well read ones, they know their Who better than anyone I know. Well, almost. Great points, good discussion and all around fun to listen to. Except that Josh guy. I don’t know what his deal is.
Even my girlfriend finds them enjoyable to listen to!
