Episode 203: Electric K. Ant

So, Mr. Ant, what qualifies you for this position?

This is one of the best Doctor Who stories of all time according to Dylan, and a very good one according to Kiyan, and basically all of fandom really. Most people like this, so if you don’t you’re obviously wrong. Just flat out wrong, that’s the nature of the game unfortunately. It’s Midnight, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on June 14, 2008.
