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!!

Opposites Attract

Episode 56 – Rob and Mark are back! As we impatiently wait for any sign of the show returning to our screens we pore over the scraps of information available. After that, we road kill, sorry, road test our new segment €˜’Opposites Attract’€™ where we take an opposing view on a couple of topics.

All this plus a really overdue letters mailbag and we wheel out our long-forgotten and neglected International Omni-Rumour public alert system. Has Rob finally cracked under the pressure of the ongoing silence? Hell yes!

Blake’s Heaven!

Episode 55 – Some of fandom’s sharpest minds (plus Mark and Rob) gather to raise a glass, or seven, to the memory of Gareth Thomas and Blake’s 7. Joining us for a good old pub style ramble through Terry Nation’s second most famous creation are fan favourites Tom, Richard and Dave were we spend a good chunk of time talking all things Blake’s 7, it’s genesis, it’s impact and its legacy. We point out the great episodes, the poor episodes, the characters that worked, those that didn’t, dive deep into some interesting fan theories and essentially geek out at 70s BBC science fiction.

All that, plus the occasional comment or two about Doctor Who we almost don’t mention the omnirumour and have a chinwag about Bill, the Doctor’s newest inner city London 20 something spunky female companion! Who said Moffat couldn’t innovate…

We also highly recommend the Blake’s Heaven book from Watching Books which can be purchased at http://watchingbooks.weebly.com/blakes-heaven.html
