342: M&Ms Exist (The Blood Line)

We’re not experienced M&Mologists, but we at least know that much.

I have a blood line, did you know that? It runs right through my arm. Look you can even see it sometimes, it’s blue and if you poke it this red liquid comes out. I only call it a blood line because that’s what everybody else calls it. I never really learned what it was in hindsight, so I’m glad Doctor Who and Torchwood are here to tell me. It’s The Blood Line, written by Russel T. Davies and Jane Espensen and aired on September 9, 2011.
