2MTL 467: Parsing Age, Rose/Ten and Thasmin
The most tortured podcast episode title I've ever created, plus my Thasmin wishlist for "Legend of the Sea Devils."
2MTL 374: "The Stone Rose" Revisited
My The Audio Guide to Babylon 5 cohost, occasional 2MTL contributor and spouse, Shannon, returns with a review of the recently reissued The Stone Rose by Jacqueline Rayner — but does she do so with Rose-colored glasses?
2MTL 369: "School Reunion" Throwback Review
It's been a LONG time since we've done a Throwback Review. So let's pick up where we left off: with an insufferable TARDIS couple realizing that things are just a little bit complicated, and a heaping helping of nostalgia from the Archetypal Companion and the Shooty Dog Thing.
2MTL 251: "The Doctor Dances" Two-minute Throwback
Let's just quickly zip past the fact that "The Doctor Dances" is one of the most excellent episodes ever, and talk about its REAL name and its true subversive impact on Doctor Who from 2005 on.
Warning: While there isn't any actual "bad language" in this episode, there's a fair bit of bleeping which itself […]
2MTL 239: The All-Star Series 6.2 Roundtable (Time Dilation)
"After all, he wrote Coupling!"
If it's the end of Series 6 (and Series 6.2, or 6.5, or whatever…) then it's time for another gathering of writers and critics to hash it all out. Kyle Anderson makes his second appearance on the All-Star panel, joined this time by Deb Stanish and Lynne […]
2MTL 175: "My" Doctor Is Not a "Bloke"

2MTL 150: The Doctor's Top Ten Kisses, Part Two
Concluding our countdown from 2MTL #149, we look at the more substantial, more meaningful story moments that involved the Doctor getting a little closer to the people he encountered — with a guest appearance from someone whose shoes fit particularly well.
2MTL 149: The Doctor's Top Ten Kisses, Part One
We don't know that EVERY classic incarnation of The Doctor was averse to being physical with his companions, but we've seen that ever since Survival went off the air he's become a LOT more touchy-feely while the cameras are rolling. Herewith, ranked on the bases of consistent characterization, plot advancement, dramatic effect and significance to […]
2MTL 100: Retcons, Authorial Intent, and "Getting Together"
POSITED: If there's nothing in the show to contradict it, it's not a "retcon." (RETroactive CONtinuity, a term that entered SF fandom from the comics world.) ALSO POSITED: If there IS something in the show…then it IS. WARNING: The words "Doctor" and "Rose" are used.

2MTL 407: Ace and Aro in Doctor Who
Mikayla, one of the hosts of The Web of Queer (Twitter), provides a great guest commentary (clocking in at an increasingly rare ACTUAL TWO MINUTES) about what you may be inadvertently communicating when you discuss whether the Doctor is, or should be, asexual or aromantic.
