With the new TV season starting, this’ll be our last top-to-bottom Who show, so we go out on a… what do you call a mix of weird and often maddening new Doctor episodes exactly? From demented Daleks (again!) to golden arrows to childhood terrors, we try to figure out what’s going on… and why!

Don, Matt, Guy, and Rene visit Pacific Tech to talk Real Genius. While they don’t hammer any six inch-spikes, they do get into Martha Coolidge’s directing, Val Kilmer’s acting, and how the idea of the military exploiting science back in 1983 plays in 2013. This one’s for Jason!
