Death in Heaven at the Grandview Tonight!

Join us tonight at the Grandview Theatre for a big screen showing of the series 8 finale, Death in Heaven! 

The episode starts at 9pm, but come a little early because the good folks at Big Fun will have a table at the theater with Doctor Who merchandise and other cool stuff!  Come see them before and after the show!

NSE episode 11!

If you haven't heard, Charles and Jesse are back with their 11th episode on Next Stop Everywhere!
"Do you think that I care for you so little that betraying me would make a difference?"

My good friend Jesse Jackson and I are back with another episode of Next Stop Everywhere: The Doctor Who Podcast!

This time out, we give our thoughts on "Dark Water," the first installment of the two-part season finale for Doctor Who Series Eight, including things oddly quiet fatal auto accidents, using a time-traveler to cheat death, Missy's official welcome to the Doctor, Samsung competing with Apple for tablets in the afterlife, The Matrix from Doctor Who vs. The Matrix, nods to classic Patrick Troughton era Cybermen stories, anti-cremation propaganda, our Reverse the Polarity segment, teasing our plans for what we're doing after Series Eight ends, my adventures at Ohio Comic Con 2014, and more!
As always, you can find them on iTunes and  Stitcher. If MP3s  are more your thing, you can download them here. :) Also be sure to give them a Like on Facebook and a follow on Twitter!

The duo will be back with their thoughts after the series 8 finale, Death in Heaven, so stay tuned!
