The exclusives just keep coming at The Doctor Who Podcast – this week we are proud to present to you an interview out Tom had with former Doctor Who script editor, Andrew Cartmel.

We also have an exclusive track from the new album by Alex Day, Still Got Legs. You might remember we interviewed Alex in Episode #38. He is back with a new album of wonderful Doctor Who parody songs. We hope you enjoy the taster we present in this episode for you.

James and Trevor are in review mode this week as they tackle a recent box set from those bods at 2Entertain.

The Mara Tales set, comprising the stories Kinda and Snakedance from the Peter Davison era have been released in a shiny cardboard case. James has already laid his cards on the table numerous times in professing his love for these two snakey stories, but what does Trev think?

We also take time to review the first episode from the new series of Torchwood.

Also included is a bit of left over rambling from a recent recording session – all to do with some thoughts on Series 6.

We also draw the winner of one of our recent competitions.

Quite a packed episode this week, a mixture of reviews and some cracking interviews, bringing to a close the second of our special Big Finish related episodes.

James and Trevor review the first two stories from Big Finish’s range of 7th Doctor “lost” stories – Thin Ice and Crime of the Century. These two stories were to kickstart the proposed Season 27 in 1990, before the axe of cancellation fell on the series and the entire season was abandoned.

Now Big Finish have lovingly created these scripts in audio format so all Doctor Who fans can hear what might have been if Doctor Who continued in its televised form into the 1990s.

Find out what the boys make of the first two offerings from this very special series of releases from Big Finish.

We also have interviews with Sophie Aldred, who played Ace alongside the Seventh Doctor, and also in these new Big Finish audios. Also on the interviewing roster is Beth Chalmers, who plays the new companion Raine Creevey.

Quite a packed little episode this week, the first of two over the coming weeks that focus on Big Finish.

James is alone in the campervan this episode where he reviews one of the latest trilogies from Big Finish, The Crimes of Thomas Brewster, The Feast of Axos and Industrial Revolution.

Also included in this episode are interviews with Mr Axon himself, Bernard Holley and Big Finish writer Johnny Morris.
