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.
