SPECIAL GUEST INTRODUCTION Provided by Toby “Moths Ate My Doctor Who Scarf” Hadoke!
In Part 2 of our celebration of DOCTOR WHO‘s 50th anniversary, we take a look at the big events of the weekend itself, from the airing of the special adventure “The Day of the Doctor” to AN ADVENTURE IN SPACE AND TIME, the Mark Gatiss-scripted drama that takes a nostalgic look back at the beginning of it all. Scott and Arnold discuss the celebration of a television institution, focus on the many “beautiful” touches that made it such an unbridled joy, and also provide some feedback on Big Finish’s own 50th anniversary special, “The Light at the End,” and the classic Doctor romp, “The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot!” Also, check the show links below for some of the many ways that Scott and Arnold seemed to take over the Internet on the 50th anniversary weekend!
SPECIAL NOTE: This episode features a remix of the DOCTOR WHO theme by “Gwylock1”!

Believe it or not, Scott and Arnold survived the zombie attacks featured in our previous episode…but just barely! This time around, our celebration of the 50th anniversary of DOCTOR WHO begins with a look at fandom – how it not only supported the series during those dark “wilderness” years but how it also helped bring your G2V hosts together and allowed them both to contribute professionally to the universe of our favorite TV series! We focus on the fun, the fantasy, and the fandom with a look at our hero – the Doctor – on screen, in print, and on audio!
