Myths and Legends and Memories and Relationships and Loops (The Pandorica Opens/The Big Bang)

In this episode Shana and Daniel are joined by Mikayla from The Web of Queer to discuss The Pandorica Opens/The Big Bang. It becomes a bit of a discussion of the Matt Smith era in general, and there's even a bonus rant about the Zygon two-parter at the end.
