    Totally psyched up for next week’s podKast now!!!

      Surprisingly candid, and I think there’s a lot of truth in what he says. I tend to think showrunning, particularly be it because a show is writer driven, works far better when you’ve got two people working in tandem.

        I agree. I like Moffat but that’s something he needs. Urgently. Before he gets too cocky.

      I won’t. I’ll assign the task to my butler. He’ll endure it as his position in the social heirarchy demands. I expect no tears.

        Nice try! Man up, McLean. You’re doing it.

          I did it back in 1987. It made me the man I am not today.

            Part one must have been a hugely disappointing 25 minutes for you at the time.

    Is Terrence Dicks still alive?! That’s impressive! The man is the classic series personified. I have a great admiration for him which his dislike of that lunar misstep only increases.

    Good call on Beast of Fang Rock, Christian. Essentially you hit the nail on the head. 🙂 Also, in case you want to know, The Face of the Enemy was a follow up to Inferno… which might be relevant. 🙂

    There is an episode of Northern Exposure that does a Twin Peaks parody. Perhaps that’s part of why the connection was made. Twin Peaks as a show was cross genre, and instead of it copying anything that was going on in the early 90s, they blazed a trail for other shows. That said, the first season is much better than the second, which is a bit of a confusing mess.

      Shush, don’t spoil the quality degradation for Brian!
