In many ways, TMTL is a breath of fresh air. It mostly runs a literal two minutes, making it the only DOCTOR WHO podcast that could accurately be classed as "svelte". For that alone, it deserves four stars. To give it more, though, would be to ignore that a lot of the episodes don't really deal with things in which I'm all that interested. Over time, I've found the host listing towards topics about fandom and rumours, neither of which matter to me all that much. I'd prefer a show that uniformly dealt with the substance of DOCTOR WHO. Given the choice between Chumblies and conventions, for example, I'll choose the monochromatic monsters any day of the week. The host, however, is genuinely interested in the nature and currency of fandom. For this reason, I find that my initial excitement about the show has marginally cooled. I now tend to read the topic before hitting the play button. Luckily, the number of occasions on which he's waxing philosophic about the show itself still outweigh the times he takes more pedestrian trips down fandom's byways. On more than a few occasions, his short sermons have proven boldly original, so it's more than worth the time to hunt for the wheat amongst the chaff. Even when I carelessly wander into a topic of lesser interest, though, the show's length prevents it from being no bigger a waste of time than an average commercial break.
