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.
The TARDISblend returns to GeeksOfDoom.com and we take the opportunity to talk about further views of Doctor Who Series 5 and The Sarah Jane Adventures Series 4; as well as discussing some of the news and rumors floating around the web.

Co-host Tom Cheredar gives us the rundown of what you can expect in the new Doctor Who Series 5 Box Set. We discuss some of the cool extras thrown in, including some new footage Steven Moffat filmed with Matt Smith and Karen Gillan specifically for this DVD release.
Later, co-host Greg Davies takes a look back at Series Four of The Sarah Jane Adventures, and delivers his evaluation of the season. We take a look at the special episode from this series that featured Matt Smith, as well as Katy Manning reprising her role as former companion Jo Grant for The Death of the Doctor, and discuss the special revelations of Time Lord lore and Doctor Who continuity that came out.
