After a prolonged absence, WHO TRUE FREAKS is back and ready to talk about the adventures of the greatest Time Lord from the planet Gallifrey. And this time out we’re tackling the opening episodes of the very recent series nine, “The Magician’s Apprentice” and The Witch’s Familiar”. The Peter Capaldi Doctor is up to his old tricks, travelling through time and saving those who needed to be saved…but when the person he intends to save turns out to be a young version of Davros, the creator of the Daleks, could the Doctor’s compassion lead to the creation of the most destructive force of all? Plus, just how the heck did Missy survive and why is she stopping airplanes and harrassing Clara? All of these topics and more will be discussed as Hope Mullinax, Dave Walker, Shawn Engel, and Dr. Bill Robinson discuss the two shows. Well, Shawn bows out for the second show since he hadn’t seen it at the time of recording and wanted to avoid spoilers. So, I guess…SPOILER WARNING! But now that he has seen it, he’s ready to give the show a listen, and you should do the same. So download the episode already…after six months, you know you want to!


As we mentioned in the show, Peter Capaldi and Craig Ferguson were in a “punk” band in the ealry 1980’s. Here is the article about it, and here is the YouTube audio of the song featured in the show.
