This week The DWP bring you a review from the very epicentre of the Campervan – the kitchen. Joined by their good friend Michael from the Tin Dog Podcast Trevor and James review Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS.
It’s another interview special! This time, James was fortunate enough to interview Louise Jameson on stage at the recent Big Blue Box 2 convention held in Tunbridge Wells. As many of you will know, Louise appeared as Leela in forty episodes of Doctor Who with Tom Baker back in the seventies. Louise was an absolute joy to speak to and fondly reminisced about her time on Doctor Who. Join her and James as she discusses Leela, Big Finish, Tom Baker, directing Katy Manning and her forays into writing and directing.
Thanks to Stephen Elsden, the Commander-in-Chief of the Big Blue Box conventions which are run in aid of Compaid – a charity providing services to disabled people in the South East of England.
James and Trevor have the absolute hide this week to bring you their review of the new story Hide.
The review was recorded whilst hiding in their newly constructed duck hide, laying on the hides of at least 15 different animals. This new addition to the Campervan complex is called “The Hideout”, though you will neither hide nor hair of a mention of this on the official drawings.
So find your favourite hiding place, pop your earphones in and join James and Trevor in their discussion of Hide.
Two hundred! Two hundred episodes of THE Doctor Who podcast! One hundred and ninety-nine episodes since that review of The Eleventh Hour all the way back in 2010! Woo-hoo!
How then, should we celebrate such a landmark? What would be appropriate?! Hmmm. We at The DWP thought long and hard on this. There could be so many ways to celebrate this historic occasion and say thank you to our devoted listeners. We came up with a couple of ideas:
- humming the Doctor Who theme for five straight hours
- reviewing Delta and the Bannermen and Unicorn and the Wasp whilst inhaling helium
- perform an entire podcast in morse code
- doing a commentary track for Planet of the Dead.
We rejected these plainly insane ideas, and after much discussion finally made a decision. How about a never-before-heard interview with an iconic Who writer who sadly is no longer with us? A writer who assisted in giving us War Lords, Draconians, Silurians and Sea Devils?! Yes. Yes indeed. That might be just the way to go!
It is therefore with immense pride that The Doctor Who Podcast presents an interview with none other than Mr Malcolm Hulke!
But why stop there?! Mac, as he preferred to be called struck up a collaborative writing relationship with a man who also went on to become a Who legend in his own right. Why not interview him too and ask him about his memories of Mac? We therefore also bring you a brand new interview with Mr Terrance Dicks!
So, sit back and enjoy an hour in the company of Messrs Dicks and Hulke as they talk about the show they help immortalise, all in one juicy, celebratory edition of The Doctor Who Podcast.
Happy 200 everyone. You may now provide cake.
Things get decidedly chilly in the DWP Campervan this week as Trevor, Leeson and James review the latest episode of Doctor Who – Cold War.
Yes, it’s the highly anticipated return of the Ice Warriors and our intrepid reviewing team revel in the opportunity to discuss a new Ice Warrior story.
To help prepare themselves for this episode, the boys sat in a cramped cupboard together for a week and poured water over their heads every three minutes whilst watching The Hunt for Red October on a continuous loop.
They talk about submarines, the 1980s, Russians and what, just what – precisely if you please – is the correct definition of a cyborg.
Be sure to tune in midweek for the 200th edition of The Doctor Who Podcast – we have something really rather special for you…..
James and Trevor are in the Campervan this week after tuning into watch the latest episode of Doctor Who, The Rings of Akhaten. They might even try to sing their version of the choral song used throughout the story. No, don’t worry, they don’t really. Or do they…..
So what did the DWP Campervan crew make of this episode? Innovative storytelling at it best or just plain strange?! There’s only one way you’re going to get to find out……

In a very special episode of the Doctor Who Podcast, it’s time to take you back to where it all began.
In 2009, two men had a dream, create an episode of the DWO WhoCast in which everything was made up, not a single thing was true.
They even created a special day on the calendar to release this episode – April 1.
The rest, as they say, is history, legend. Stories passed down through the generations about the episode of the DWO WhoCast, reviewing the mystical episode The Spume of Destiny.
Missing, believed wiped for many years, this episode of the DWO WhoCast has been returned to the archives and can now be presented again to be enjoyed by a new generation of fans.
Our thanks go to Seb over at Doctor Who Online for facilitating the return of this episode.
It’s back! After what seems like an eternity (but in reality, is actually just three months) Doctor Who is back on our tellyscreens. Huzzah! Typically, it’s at this time of year that Trev goes walkabout so James and Michele are left to steer the campervan – but are joined by the fabulous Laura (no, not the ood one), a long-term supporter of the show and has has kinda assumed the role of ‘roving DWP reporter’ of late – she helped to cover the recent Big Finish Day (interviews will be forthcoming) and has attended the BFI screenings with Ian and James this year.
So what did this new DWP campervan-combo think of the series 7b opener, The Bells of St. John? Tune in, download and find out! But don’t click. Don’t even click. Click, and you’re dead.
A big week here in the DWP Campervan here at the compound.
Trevor, James and Leeson wrap their heads around the epic new series episode from last Friday night – Remembrance of the Spume. As we see Season 14 coming to a close the revelations are coming thick and fast, and this story is no exception! Is there enough in this story to keep long term fans happy and new fans entertained? Can the show recover from the “Mars Colony” incident?
Ian and Michele keep the Big Finish reviews coming, and take a look and listen to the latest adventure – Clink.
Onion Boy makes his triumphant return to the DWP airwaves after his enforced cyro-sleep and makes some interesting observations on the question that must not be answered…
As always, get your feedback in via the usual means. We look forward to hearing from you.
