As one Doctor prepares to begin his reign, Michele, James and Stephen take a look back at the beginning of another. We set the dial for 1970 and review Jon Pertwee’s debut story, Spearhead From Space.
Stephen Elsden pops back for Part Two of Re-Trial of a Time Lord and reports back after his very first viewing of Terror of the Vervoids and The Ultimate Foe.
Still not enough?! Well then, Ian and Michele continue their trek through the first season of Eight Doctor and Charley Big Finish stories and review The Stones of Venice.
Enjoy the show.
Join Stephen, Michele and James as they geek out over the latest Doctor Who news. And George Formby.
We also welcome Stephen Elsden back to the campervan for Part 1 of Re-Trial of a Time Lord – a new mini-series where Stephen talks about his reaction to watching Series 23 for the very first time, some thirty years after it first aired on BBC1.
As if that wasn’t enough, then Michele and Ian continue their trek through the Eighth Doctor Big Finish plays and turn their attention to Sword of Orion!
Enjoy the show.
And welcome to the first regular Doctor Who Podcast of 2014! In time honoured fashion, it’s our predictions episode! James, Stephen, Michele and Leeson take a look back at the predictions we made at the beginning of last year (in Episode 183) and then foolishly go on to make brand new ones for 2014.
Happy New Year everyone! And what better way is there to start the New Year off than looking back at one of 2013’s most popular and successful series of Doctor Who events?!
Lat year, the British Film Institute organised the wonderful Doctor Who at 50 – eleven monthly events, each of which celebrated a different era of the show. At least one full story was screened at each event and then a panel was held with Doctor Who alumni from each era. The events attracted Doctor Who stars from across the ages – from Tom Baker to David Tennant to Donald Tosh, the BFI was the place to celebrate Who in 2013.
In this episode, James talks to Justin Johnson and Dick Fiddy from the BFI – the co-curators and organisers of the Doctor Who at 50 events and discuss nearly getting Christopher Eccleston, the ticketing decisions and basically how much they love Doctor Who!
Tune in for Episode 242 in a couple of weeks’ time – be warned: it’s our predictions show!
