Hey, new episode time! First things first: Doctor Who! Our friend the Doctor not only starred in a quick scene for Children in Need, but is going to be reappearing for Christmas — and maybe in feature film? Our enthusiasm for each thing varies wildly!

And Liz and Rudy also touch on the precarious position that Community (and, ergo, its homage to the classic time travel series Inspector Spacetime) currently occupies on television! And also Family Guy did a time travel episode! And Terra Nova is still on the air! So much to discuss!

But don’t worry, Liz and Rudy eventually get around to 11/22/63, Stephen King’s JKF assassination-focused novel. How many references to other King books did Rudy catch? What did Liz think of the time travel mechanics meticulously detailed by the book? How many fun facts about Lee Harvey Oswald did we all learn? There’s both spoiler-free and spoiler-y discussion for you if you haven’t read the book yet, never fear.

As always, tell us what you think about ANY of this via Twitter, Facebook, email or the comments right here on this post! And thanks so much for listening.

    I think the link here plays episode 28? I came here via a google search for people who were talking both about Doctor Who and 11/22/63 so … off to itunes to see if I can find the proper episode there :-)

    Re. the lack of handcrafted adipose–a couple of years ago, someone posted a free knitting pattern for an adipose, and someone else took this pattern and was selling copies, and the bbc cracked down on the pattern creator (not the seller) even though there are a whole bunch of people out there with free whovian patterns and it had never been a problem before. There was a lot of fuss over it in the crafting community but anyway, that’s probably why there are bazillions of crafted daleks out there and no adipose.
