Computer Games (of the Doctor Who kind!)

Episode 65 – Mark and Richard go all retro and set the way back machine to the 80’s, 90’s and today to discuss how our favourite TV show has fared as a computer game or in one case a pinball machine!

We start from the 8-bit era’s The First Adventure, Doctor Who and The Warlord and bring it bang up to date with Doctor Who Legacy and Lego Dimensions. We give our verdict on the hits, the misses and try to answer the perennial question that has alluded us all “has there ever been a decent Doctor Who computer game?”

 

Thanks to the immensely talented Doc Whom of the Diddly Dum Podcast for the collage of video game memories and Kevin Jordan for the audio clips from the Deus Ex Machina video game.

Dragged from the Archives – Part Trois!

Episode 64 – Rob and Mark are back! With new series discussion still a ‘no fly zone’ they again delve into the past with another full length Dragged from the Archives extravaganza!


Marvel at the build-up and excitement leading into to Season 26. Gasp at the positive reaction to The Ultimate Adventure play and go weak at the knees at news of The Daleks are finally being released on DED (VHS)!

All this plus feedback and confirmation that Season 27 is happening and we answer that burning question, what musical splendour is unleashed when a couple of ‘Z list’ Doctor Who celebrities get together with the shows former continuity adviser?

Revenge of the Cidermen!

Episode 63 – Mark and Rob return with podcasting companions, Richard and Dave! and broadcast to you (almost) live from Dave’s Fortress of Solitude. We discuss Dave’s trip to the Mother Country, natter about Peter Capaldi’s departure, dive deep into the Four Phases of Companions(hip) and open up our Target Reading Club with some classic era novelisations.

Also, listen for the introduction of our new segment – Devil’s Advocate, where Rob goes off the reservation and sets down a marker for Chris Chibnall to meet. Rob talks sense, will Chibbers meet his expectations?

Apologies for the sound quality of the episode Mark pressed the wrong button!!

2016 New Year Eve Special!

Mark and Rob return (briefly) replete with pudding, custard, a whole roast pig and lashing of Christmas cheer to farewell 2016 in the manner it truly deserves with the return of our New Year Eve special!

In keeping with the musical theme these episodes are renowned (cough) we go all ‘non-canon’ and give you a DVD commentary for the video clip of ‘The Ballad of Doctor Who’ – the song made famous by Australian Country Music Legends Bullamakanka. And no Patreon account required – we’ve done it for you, for free!

All this plus listen to our brazen (and frankly cuckoo) idea of hijacking the Twitter account of the President-Elect in a desperate attempt to gain more followers! KKK-razy!

Here is the link to the clip so you can ‘read along with us with your book.’ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5rH4LFVLUg4

Wishing you all a very happy New Year wherever you are listening and 42 to Doomsday will return in 2017!

 

 

Staff Xmas Party – Part Deux!

Episode 61 – Just like around a Xmas Day smorgasbord, Mark and Rob reconvene with special guests Richard and Dave to gorge ourselves on such tasty topics as American politics, Power of the Daleks’ animation, our Top 3 Six Part stories that would be better as four parters, the ever changing television landscape and why are some of us a bit nonplussed about the series at the moment.

All this plus out hopes and dreams for Series 11 of Doctor Who, Mark unleashes the Target Book Challenge and more importantly will they maintain their record of the only Doctor Who podcast not to review / give an a**e about Class!

Typical..Absolutely Typical?

Episode 60 – Interstate rivalries are (briefly) put on ‘hiatus’ when the curator of the Doctor Who Show Rob Irwin appears on this episode where we discuss the stories we would classify as ‘typical’ examples of particular eras of Doctor Who.

Mark is also taken to task about his ‘non-canon’ position on the new incarnation of Peter Cushing’s Doctor Who; we subject Rob to Who Knows where he has to guess the Doctor Who story based on comments left on You Tube and ask the perennial question: which state makes the better coffee – Victoria or New South Wales ?

Top 5 Overrated Doctor Who Stories!

Episode 59 – Just like 80’s pop duo BROS, Mark and Rob have also (tearfully) reunited and to help us take a look at what we consider to be Doctor Who’™s most overrated stories we welcome back special guest Rob Lloyd!

Which stories do we blaspheme against and which sacred cows are slaughtered in the name of podcasting? The results will surprise you! All this plus what our listener’€™s thoughts on their overrated stories and with the 50th Anniversary of Evil of the Daleks fast approaching will it be next animation release?

If you feel suitable outraged about any of our selections don’t forget to drop us line – listen to the very end for omni-channel contact details!

Doctors in Other Things (a.k.a what have I seen him in before)

Episode 58 – Rob, Richard and Dave (aka The Three Mouthketeers) assemble sans Mark. We ruminate on the Power animation (note this episode was recorded a few days before the official announcement of the animation of Power of the Daleks) and chew more cud about Phil Morris’s appearance at the Starburst Film Festival.

We then move on to talk about our top 5 (plus 1 non-canon) appearances by Doctor Who leads actors in other movies and television. Which Doctors get no votes and who wins?

Dragged from the Archives – Part Deux!

Episode 57 – Mark and Rob again set the way back machine to the late 80’s for a full length episode of Dragged from the Archives. We crack open the fanzine vault and look back at contemporary reaction to Season 25, the recovery of missing episodes, the Ultimate adventure play and the new producer destined to bring the programme into the 90’s!!

All this plus we get all high-brow discussing Dr Who’s mention in the Australian Financial Review and the bizarre parallels to the political situation in the UK and the 1985 cancellation crisis!!
