The Cloister Room 032 - Intelligent Slop

This week on The Cloister Room, Tom and Louis reminisce on the brilliance of Series Six of Doctor Who (as well as some of the less brilliant parts). Also, they talk about the first couple episodes of Fox's new show Terra Nova, and throw in some discussion of the current season of Fringe and some cursory discussion of a couple other science fiction shows. Please note: the last couple of minutes contain vague spoilers for the end of Battlestar Galactica.

The Cloister Room 028 - How They Frict

This week Tom and Louis take on Doctor Who: "The Girl Who Waited," and attempt to unravel the potent psychological metaphor of the green anchor and the red waterfall. Tom picks on Louis a lot. Like, more than usual. And then they talk about Torchwood: Miracle Day, which is now done.

This week Tom and Louis discuss Doctor Who: "Night Terrors", and propose potential solutions to the financial issues raised (but never addressed) in the universe.

The Cloister Room 026 - Clearly I Am Not A Farmer

Doctor Who is back on our screens and in our hearts. Tom and Louis discuss "Let's Kill Hitler" and there's plenty of baseless speculation to go around. Plus, now that Tom is caught up on Torchwood: Miracle Day, he and Louis discuss the latest developments in that area.

The Cloister Room 025 - A Storm-at-the-Heart-of-the-Sun Kind Of Guy

The Cloister Room returns from its inexcusable hiatus to stumble through some thoughts on Torchwood: Miracle May, and speculate wildly (and baselessly) about what's to come on Doctor Who when it returns this weekend.

The Cloister Room 024 - Riverlation

The Cloister Room's semi-edited discussions of Doctor Who series six come to s close until "late summer" as Tom and Louis find out what happens when a Good Man Goes to War and scratch their heads a bit trying to fit all the pieces together and guess where this is all heading.

The Cloister Room 023 - The Eyes Say Why

This week our slightly edited discussion of Doctor Who is coming to you a bit late. Before watching A Good Man Goes To War, Tom and Louis discussed the two-part story The Rebel Flesh and The Almost People. That discussion is now yours, courtesy of the magic of podcasting.

Our thoughts on A Good Man Goes to War and the first half of series six as a whole will (hopefully) arrive in your ears before too long.

The Cloister Room 021: Damned Spot

The unedited ramblings about series six continue. This week Tom gets a little too interested in the urination situation on board the TARDIS, and Louis tries desperately to deny the death of the Zune, as they discuss Doctor Who: The Curse of the Black Spot.

The Cloister Room 020: Crazyguy and Creepyhouse

Tom and Louis continue their sparsely edited discussions about series six. This week Tom gripes about how he disliked Day of the Moon. Louis barely gets a word in edgewise, as is customary.

Complete with factual inaccuracies regarding changes in this series's episode order, numerous difficulties with Silent/Silents/Silence, and baseless speculation!

The Cloister Room 019: The Impossible Astronaut

The Cloister Room is going weekly, by hook or by crook. These episodes will be less polished, but they will certainly be timely. Here's our discussion of The Impossible Astronaut. Spoilers ahead.

My brain is broken and I simply could not think of a good title for this episode. Figured I'd steal the one Moffat used.
