The Doctor Who TARDISblend 41: Closing Time
  |  

As Series Six of Doctor Who begins to race to its conclusion, the Doctor (Matt Smith) is on the tail end of a 200-year journey since separating from companions Amy and Rory Williams (Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill). Before taking the steps towards his deadly encounter with the Impossible Astronaut, Madame Kovarian (Frances Barber), and the Silents, the Time Lord decides to drop in on an old friend: Craig Owens (James Corden).

But the social visit turns out to be a destiny with danger, as the Doctor begins to detect strange things afoot in a shop near Craig’s home. The two team up, and along with Craig and Sophie’s (Daisy Haggard) baby Alfie, they quickly discover a new plot from the dreaded Cybermen… and it could be a disastrous showdown.

During TARDISblend 41, we review the events of Closing Time, and look at the conclusion to the journey the heroes face in this adventure. We reminisce on some of the connections to both Classic and Modern Doctor Who episodes made during this adventure, examine the Doctor’s sonic screwdriver a little closely, and debate the concluding scenes of this episode featuring River Song (Alex Kingston) as we speed towards the season finale.

The season finale, entitled The Wedding of River Song, features an all-star cast with many different characters that have made appearances since the resurgence of Doctor Who with Christopher Eccleston in 2005. Later, we make some Classic Doctor Who recommendations, and discuss what YOU had to say in comments on previous episodes.

All this and more on the latest TARDISblend!

Presented by Greg Davies (cGt2099 from The Social Blend Podcast) and geek journalist Tom Cheredar, TARDISblend is a podcast that takes a look at the ongoing adventures in the Doctor Who Universe – as Matt Smith makes his journey as the Eleventh Doctor!

  1. ENJOY the finale guys. enjoy the wedding.
    Re: Confidential. The boxsets still only contain the 15 minute mini versions.
    Not the 45min versions, but I’m sure theyre out there somwhere. Some of these full length episodes are well worth checking out if you like “behind the scenes” programs. Saturday nights in the UK for the past 6 years has been an hour and a half of Who! Whoray ;) Enjoy….

  2. Boohoo! one day later and we find that Confidential is to be axed after saturday :(
    due to BBC cutbacks. However, the back catalogue of DWC 45mins programs make for compelling viewing.
