Soooo, thank you for your patience with our little April Fool. My wife's Spanish-language commentary was actual, honest-to-God content; in today's podcast she repeats her plea for a change in the approach to Doctor Who companions — in English this time.
But, first, some announcements about a big change in The Two-minute Time Lord […]
