Ross, Melvin, and the returning Jeff talk about The Giggle.  RTD has given us a new kind of regeneration episode.  The 14th Doctor, Donna, the returning Mel, and UNIT must save the world from The Toymaker.

We have reached the end of the 12th Doctor's first season. Victoria and Ross have new insights on this veiwing of these two episodes. Missy grand scheme come to it's climax, Danny dies, Clara greaves, and the Doctor is President of Earth, oh by the way that is a terrible idea.  All these things seem new to Ross and that alone sparks some good conversation.
