Writer Chris Chibnall’s second story for Series 7 – The Power of Three goes under the DWP microscope this episode.
Ian and James are in the review seats this episode and are joined later on by a mysterious Leeson in a time-eddy. Really.
The feedback has been pouring into the DWP inbox over the past few weeks, full of your comments on the first few episodes from Season 7.
In this episode, Trevor, Michele and Tom go through the feedback received.
And since they have been absent from the initial review eps, they also share their thoughts on the first three episodes.
Well, oh mercy me! What do we have here, wandering into my little establishment! What do you call yourself, stranger?
The D, W, P… pod-cast you say? Interesting. Never heard of no pod-cast in these here parts before.
So beg my asking, but just what does a D, W, P pod-cast actually do?
A review you say? Surely you aren’t reviewing pretty little me? Oh my!
Oh, not me… you are reviewing? A what, a T V show? Doctor Who?
No I profess to not knowing what in heaven this thing called a T V is, but surely the good Doctor has a last name? I can’t be calling a gentlemen Doctor Who, now can I?
Oh, I see. How bizarre.
Well, why don’t you seat yourself down in that chair and tell me all about this T V show? Does this show have a name, or do I call it Who as well?
A Town Called Mercy? Lordy be, what a funny name! Tell me all about it. Don’t be long now you here, I have chores to attend to.
The lads were lucky enough to attend the BFI screening of this episode on the 14th August and recorded a bit of a live show where they discuss the story, and some of the interesting titbits that came out of the lively Q&A session afterwards.
We got a bit of the fit of the giggles in the DWP Campervan this week when we realised we had reached the lofty heights of Episode 150 of the Doctor Who Podcast. So it seemed only apt that we talk about comedy and its relationship with our favourite program, Doctor Who.
And who better than to talk about comedy, but a comedian? Long time contributor to the show Ashley Frieze finally takes up a pink vinyl seat in the Campervan alongside Trev, James, Tom and Leeson and talks about what has made us laugh in Doctor Who. We also discuss comedians who have made the leap from standup to Doctor Who as well as comedy gold and misfires.
Ian and Michele also join the fun and discuss – The Horns of Nimon – proper story or panto?
Throw into the mix a few DWP skits and sketches, as well as a song from Ashley, and you have the 150th episode of the DWP!
Welcome to another week of THE Doctor Who Podcast, quite simply the finest Doctor Who podcast around and frankly you should feel honoured and humbled as this episode downloads its way to you!
A very intimate affair this week, with Trevor and Ian together in the Campervan, having a bit of a geek out. The hoary subject of Doctor Who canon is the main subject of the day, and the chaps discuss its relevance or otherwise to Doctor Who.
Make sure you have your downloading devices at the ready next week as we begin our lead-up to our 150th episode, with a very special series of releases from The Doctor Who Podcast.
It is Tom and Trev’s turn this week to share their least favourite stories from the 6th Doctor through to the present Doctor.
We also have a stab at trying to pick our least favourite story from the 1st to 5th Doctor eras.
Ian and Michele also chip in with their least favourites as well.
The four novels we are reviewing, forming our look at the 9th Doctor book range are
We were also very lucky to coax some of our fellow podcasters and dear friends of the show to provide some readings of the books being reviewed. Our thanks to Laura from the Oodcast, Chip from the 2Minute Timelord, Erik from the Doctor Who Book Club Podcast, Michele from the DWP and her son Ken! Thank you all!
