#24 – Robots

This week we’re talking about Doctor Who. First we’ll pull a card from the Recipe Box to show you some great resources for making your own Doctor Who snacks. We’ll jump in the Phone Box to talk to DebDebDeb about our favorite Gallifreyan. Next, we’ll talk about the 1996 Doctor Who TV movie in the Wonder Box. We’ll cover all the Who News for you to use in the News Box. Finally, we’ll pull out some questions you submitted through the Idea Box.
