With only Torchwood news to bandy about, the second part of Steven Moffat’s epic two-parter from Season 1 took center stage for this episode for a shorthanded RFS staff as they discussed the intricacies of one of the first series’ masterpieces while simultaneously avoiding any actual discussion of the episode at hand, as per usual.
UPDATE : In a devilishly clever move, we actually released two (2) different versions of Episode 147 – one with the two original RFS hosts, Warren and Steven, and the other (the “Coy and Vance” version) with Chris (Proper Chris), Katrina, and another Chris (Other Chris). Each episode was recorded completely independent of each other. Which episode you downloaded and/or listened to depended on what our Randomizer had to say.
We had hoped that listeners would react with mass befuddlement, engaging in confusing conversations about why one listener’s version of #147 was different from another listener’s. Obviously, none of you talk to each other. RFS listeners generally reacted to the move with rampant indifference, as we received nary a comment about our hijinks. Oh well. We sniggered slightly, for what it’s worth.
Anyway, we now offer both versions of Episode #147 “Dancing Doctors and Empty Children” for download below (it will also be uploaded to the ever popular iTunes feed). The most curious thing about this whole experiment? How both versions managed to reference the classic series story “The Horns of Nimon”. What does that say about us?
