    BZR WhoviCast VII: The Name of the Doctor

    in Television

    The biggest finale of Doctor Who is finally here and now is the time to bring our reaction to light.  But it won't be just that!  Consider this: it is the final episode of Series 7 of Doctor Who and that means the entire season is examined from all angles.  The ending complimented the season AND left a tease for the much anticipated 50th Anniversary on November 23rd.  Point is, this will be the final episode of WhoviCast until the 50th Anniversary special, and it's going to be an epic 90-minute episode of whovicasting with friends and fellow whovians (such as yourselves).  Whether you catch this episode live or listen to it later, this is an episode of WhoviCast you DO NOT want to miss.  Leave commens and let us hear your thoughts and feedback and we'll see you next time at the 50th!

    BZR WhoviCast VI: Nightmare in Silver

    in Television

    You'd think the cybermen are pretty easy to defeat.  They're slow, their heads easily blow up, and they're practically useless without a human brain.  And yet, the cybermen survived in Doctor Who lore and they've upgraded themselves many times and had simply outdone themselves.  Series 6's The Doctor's Wife writer Neil Gaiman wrote this episode and we're going to review the Cybermen's latest upgrade and what this episode could mean for the Cybermen as a whole.  In addition to that we're getting ready for the biggest Doctor Who series finale yet, and we're getting even more excited for the 50th anniversary.
