Happiness has Prevailed!
What a wonderful, cheery, bubbly bunch of insightful fans of Doctor Who! I enjoy every Doctor Who podcast thoroughly, but the crew at The Happiness Patrol have made doing chores all the more happy! Not only is this a unique, intelligent dialogue between life long Who fans but their positivity creates a wonderful atmosphere, which uplifts any downtrodden mood! ;-) It also opens the listener up to more of the wide expanse that is the Doctor Who community. I wouldnt miss an single show!
Keep on Patrolling!

There is None Better!
Whether you're a casual fan of all things Doctor Who (like me) or a diehard like the dynamic team of experts that comprise Team Happiness Patrol, you are guaranteed to enjoy the antics of Lewis B. and the rest of the crew! I look forward to each exciting episode of Happiness Patrol ALMOST as much as the upcoming adventures of Doctor "Matt Smith" Who!
It always good to be happy!
With so many Doctor Who podcasts to choose from, it's truly wonderful to find The Happiness Patrol. Not only is it highly entertaining, but you can learn some great info about all things Who. From classic to new Who, the joys of having a TARDIS in your living room, building a dalek, knitting a scarf, or even skiing there us something for everyone! It's wonderful to hear our four hosts have such a fun time, that at the end of each podcast I truly have a smile on my face.
