Join us next week for our review of Doctor Who story #... well, it doesn’t really have a number, because it was unfinished and never broadcast. But it’s after story #108 and before story 109, so let’s call it 108.5, shall we? (We’ll argue about the details on next week’s show.) You can buy the DVD from Amazon.com, BarnesAndNoble.com, the WB Shop, the BBC Doctor Who Shop, or many other fine retailers.
