It’s never easy when the Doctor loses a companion during her/his travels, and the same is true of close friends in real life. As we previously reported, dear friend and longtime Geeks of Doom contributor Greg Davies (also known as cgt2099), passed away suddenly last week. For 124 episodes, Greg and I delved into complex discussions to deliver a critique of Doctor Who via the TARDISblend podcast. While the podcast has come to an end, my fellow GoDs and I wanted to do something to celebrate our fallen mate.
Greg Davies, a long-time Geeks of Doom contributor and friend, passed away Tuesday. He was one of the first internet friends I made at the dawn of the social media and news-sharing era over a decade ago. He went by the handle cgt2099 and regularly used a silver alien head as his avatar. He immigrated to America from his home down under in Australia, and often ended discussions with the word “Dilligaf*.” And unlike the majority of folks I encountered in those early days of the social web, this guy was always hyper interested in two things: the most important news of the day, and figuring out a way to build a community around it that had more humanity than a rowdy comment section.

But there is something more sinister which awaits on the planet, and it has been waiting for the Doctor…
During TARDISblend 123, we discuss Doctor Who episode 11.10, “The Battle of Ranskoor Av Kolos.” This includes the return of a villain from earlier this season, the incredible performance by Bradley Walsh as companion Graham O’Brien, and Mark Addy (best known as King Robert Baratheon on Game of Thrones) being a wonderful addition to this finale.

Finding themselves in Norway, the Doctor (Jodie Whittaker) and her companions arrive on a haunting cottage, all barricaded. Inside they find a scared young girl, but there is more hidden away in the house – with universal ramifications…
During TARDISblend 122, we discuss one of the most surreal and divisive episodes of Doctor Who, “It Takes You Away,” and examine some of our favorite and not-so-favorite scenes, and how satisfying the scenes that connected back to previous episodes and previous character development were.
