It begins with a knock at the TARDIS door, while still in deep space, and an important message from a long-lost Time Lord friend. The distress signal prompts the Doctor (Matt Smith), Amy Pond (Karen Gillan), and Rory Williams (Arthur Darvill) to literally leave the universe, and leads them to a junkyard asteroid. The matrix and power of the TARDIS is immediately drained, leaving them stranded on this odd world, where they confront a mysterious entity called the House (Michael Sheen). What secrets does the mad bitey woman known as Idris (Suranne Jones) hold for the Doctor?
During TARDISblend 26, we review the events of the long-awaited Neil Gaiman-penned episode, The Doctor’s Wife, an episode that proves to be much of the best Doctor Who has offered in a long time.
We also take a look at the return of the TARDIS control room used by Christopher Eccleston and David Tennant, and examine Rory’s repeated deaths again. With a bit of a flashback, we briefly mention Rowan Atkinson‘s quick time as The Doctor as written by Steven Moffat – and we look back at Classic Doctor Who episodes including Patrick Troughton in The War Games, and Tom Baker in City of Death.
We also discuss the upcoming next episode, The Rebel Flesh, which is the first chapter of a two-part adventure. All this and more on the latest TARDISblend!
