Thanks to the holidays, this huge Time Dilation edition of the podcast was almost literally 404. Thanks so much to Kyle Anderson and Erik Stadnik of Doctor Who: The Writers' Room for joining me for an in-depth (believe me, once they get wound up about "Sleep No More"…) examination of Series 9.

This podcast was recorded before "The Husbands of River Song" aired, about which more next time.

After millions of years of chipping away at a diamond wall, getting zapped by a creature from nightmares, and crawling to a teleporter to restart the cycle, I've released a podcast about "Heaven Sent."

The 400th episode of 2MTL coincides with the swan song of one Clara Oswald (and Chip is blissfully unaware of spoilers or synopses for the next two episodes, so he's going to hold to that position for now). And as modern companion departures go, there's been no equal.

Check out Chip on The Incomparable Network's TeeVee podcast episode 118 for a longer conversation about "Face the Raven" with host Jason Snell.

Just over halfway through Series 9, some fans have come to terms with the Sonic Sunglasses, and some are totally over them. Steven Moffat wouldn't have it any other way.

Your host's earlier fears about Osgood's fate and portrayal have been for the moment assuaged, and, oh by the way, this episode rocked.
