The Zygon Inversion Podcast
This week I’m joined by Gene Mays of the superlative Being and Time Lord to talk about The Zygon Inversion. We manage a record speed of getting completely off topic, and end up talking about Heidegger a bunch, so basically, business as usual. (Obviously this was recorded prior to Jack’s mammoth and brilliant post earlier today, or else we’d probably just be talking about it the whole time.) Download it here or be forever destroyed.

Currently coming up to the end of the podcast, an as always interesting to listen to.
One thing that to point out is that Harness makes sure Kate isn’t a victim of the Doctor and the mind wipe. Earlier in the episode when they’re in the Zygon underground base, the Doctor tells Kate how she knows all about the Osgood boxes and then voluntarily wiped her mind to make them work better. So Kate attains enlightenment and then willingly denies herself that so she can help others attain the same enlightenment.
It really is a great story.

The third most perverse use of Murray Gold is way way back in the End of the World, where he has to musically foreshadow Toxic by Britney Spears.
