Pex Lives: A Doctor Who Podcast
James Murphy and Kevin Burns are both Certified Minor Internet Personalities with a shared love of Doctor Who. Explore the history of the show with them, as they watch classic serials and chat with each other each month about them. Each month, the pair will pick a classic serial to watch and then break down, exploring the themes, characters and production of the given story. There will also be jokes. New episodes on the first Sunday of every month.
12. The TV Movie, or I've Never Heard of It. What Do You Remember?

Finally, the long delayed episode 12, which was our one year anniversary with our first ever guests, has time travelled from July. It's so exciting to have people hear what turned out to be a fantastic conversation that's so much better than the subject at hand; the TV Movie.
