We're back, and we're picking up where we left off…

…sort of! Join us next week for a glimpse at the new 2MTL!

A Christmas Eve reflection on what it means to let go of even a beloved Doctor, in order to embrace the future. (I now podcast about Doctor Who every week with Alyssa Franke at This Week in Time Travel on The Incomparable podcast network. Please follow us on Twitter or Facebook!)

The balloon's going up. Sunday after Wimbledon, we'll know who the Thirteenth Doctor is. Here are 120 seconds (more or less) of thoughts as fandom holds its breath.

I now podcast about Doctor Who every week with Alyssa Franke at This Week in Time Travel on The Incomparable podcast network. Please check us out!

Originally aired on This Week in Time Travel 5: Chip was recently asked why he gravitated toward/obsesses over Doctor Who above all other fandoms. Turns out, it's personal.

OK, so Chip has a new podcast that he's spending more time on, and yet he can't wait until next Tuesday to respond to this Guardian column: "How Can Smug, Stale Doctor Who Get Back to its Glory Days?" Here we go…

Joining The Incomparable podcast network on March 28, Alyssa Franke, I, and some of our friends and (dare we say) Companions will take a look at the week that was–and the week that will be–in the worlds of Doctor Who. New episodes of This Week in Time Travel will drop every Tuesday.

I'm super excited to get to talk about Doctor Who with other people on a regular basis, but I'm not planning to abandon 2MTL entirely. Whenever there's a short essay on This Week in Time Travel, we'll share it right here as well.

Our first episodes will include interviews with good folks like Titan Comics Twelfth Doctor artist Rachael StottDoctor Who alum and Chalk author Paul Cornell, and Kim Rogers and Sage Young of the influential Head Over Feels. Join us, won't you? We're at thisweekintimetravel.com or you can find us at The Incomparable. Follow us on Twitter at @drwhothisweek and visit our Facebook page. And subscribe to This Week in Time Travel on your podcatcher of choice!

Yeah, this is worth breaking a hiatus again.

We've had just two years with him, and then a whole Wilderness Year without him (save an appearance on Class), and now we've found out that Series 10 and the following Christmas special will mark the end of Peter Capaldi's too-short run. Alyssa "@WhovianFeminism" Franke and I celebrate his time on the show, speculate on his final series, and prognosticate about what may follow.

2MTL pops up its head like a prairie dog to weigh in on "The Return of Doctor Mysterio" and the end of the Wilderness Year, then retreats back into its burrow. But watch this space for news of a potential new podcasting project…

2MTL may or may not return with the new season of Doctor Who, but I couldn't say goodbye without tipping my hat to the community of fans and podcasters that gave my life meaning during rough times and encouraged my creativity. What better way to do that, than by rerunning The Ood Cast's classic every-podcaster-and-the-kitchen-sink parody from Series 6, "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life"?

Look for me on The Audio Guide to Babylon 5, occasional panels on The Incomparable Network, and…who knows? Who…nose…?

One last Throwback Review before 2MTL falls into a black hole: "The Impossible Planet" is great for exactly the reason I missed.

(NOTE: The ending of the podcast is an intentional nod…)
