    And, finally we are joined this week by friend-of-the-show, Andy Frankham-Allen. Andy shares some insight into the the line, as well as how he came to write and help steer the ship for the series.

    \n

    Plus, we discuss the news that Steven Moffat is leaving Doctor Who, and that we will only see one story this year before the series is moved to the Spring of 2017.
