Another era of our favourite show comes to an end – Matt Smith takes his final bow and morphs into the erratic kidney loving Peter Capaldi.

Time of the Doctor gives us our final glimpse of Matt Smith as the Doctor, and it is down to Stephen and Trevor to provide their thoughts on the story – but James manages to get his thoughts in too!

Get your feedback in on this story and indeed on the whole of the Matt Smith era to feedback@thedoctorwhopodcast.com.

Join James, Stephen and Ian as they get together to talk about….well, it’s a geek-out so anything’s on the cards.  It’s only natural however that the conversation heads in the direction of reviewing the 50th Anniversary year.  All three attended the Celebration at the Excel so that gets a review along with a chat about all the other celebratory events that have taken place .   In all the excitement, a lone voice dares to say; yes Doctor Who has taken over television – but has there been enough of the actual flagship show itself?  Would we have traded the Afterparty and The Science of Doctor Who for another episode of the show itself?  Hmmm.

Next week – it’s BACK!  Yes, it’s our Christmas Quiz!!

With Day of the Doctor having aired over a week ago, it’s time to find out what our listeners thought of the Anniversary episode.  Join James, Stephen, Michele and Tony as they read, listen and argue about the points of view you’ve send in!

 

Hot on the heels of last episode’s instant review of the Day of the Doctor, the DWP presenters retreat to the relative safety of the DWP Campervan to have a more measured, thoughtful, insightful discussion on the 50th Anniversary story.

Join the hosts of your favourite Doctor Who podcast as they discuss in more detail their reactions to The Day of the Doctor!

How about that then?! THE DAY HAS BEEN SAVED! James, Michele, Tony and Laura were at the British Film Institute this evening to see Day of the Doctor along with fellow fans as it aired around the globe. This is their instant reaction, recorded not more than ten minutes after the final credits had rolled.  Tune in to find out what they thought about it! NOW!!!

Join us later in the week for Part 2 of our review when Tom and Leeson share what they thought too. We’d also love to hear what you thought – send in your feedback to us as feedback@thedoctorwhopodcast.com. Audio feedback under two minutes stands a better chance of making onto a future DWP.

Enjoy the show!

Wow.  Who saw THAT coming?! Paul McGann BACK as The Doctor on our telly boxes!  But what did the DWP team make of it?! Join James, Tom and Stephen as they attempt to regulate their breathing so they can articulate their reactions to seven minutes of television no-one thought would ever exist….

Inevitably, discussion turns to Day of the Doctor – but don’t worry, it’s all spoiler-free. Mainly because we don’t know anything about the story!

Also, Ian and his son Alex pop into the Campervan to talk about Professor Brian Cox‘s  latest project, The Science of Doctor Who that screened on BBC2 the same day that Night of the Doctor was released.  What a week!

Join us Thursday – yes, Thursday – at 10.30pm GMT when Episode 236 will be online – a review Mark Gatiss’ An Adventure in Space and Time.

 

In the second of our Writers Specials, we speak to Tommy Donbavand and Simon Guerrier about writing for Doctor Who.  Tommy talks about his recent Eleventh Doctor and Clara novel, Shroud of Sorrow and Simon about giving words to the Second Doctor and Jamie in is his Destiny of the Doctors audio, Shadow of Death.

Join Stephen, Tony and Laura as they guide you through the interviews – oh, and there’s a cameo from a truly ghostly voice from the DWP’s murky past……

Join us for Episode 234 next week for our review of Big Finish’s Light at the End.

Tom and Michele return to the Campervan and waste no time at all in dissecting the trailer for the 50th Anniversary episode, The Day of the Doctor that was released last week.

They then talk about the recent Big Finish sixth Doctor and Mel trilogy, The Wrong Doctors, Spaceport Fear and The Seeds of War.  Whilst the DWP team are geeking out about this sometime controversial TARDIS team, Ian pops in to chat about the Mechanoids sole Big Finish outing, The Juggernauts.

Tune in next week to hear the verdict on what has been arguably Big Finish’s most anticipated release EVER – the 50th anniversary special featuring Doctors 1 to 8 – The Light at the End!

 

In this edition of The Doctor Who Podcast, Stephen, Leeson and James take a look back at the soon-ending Matt Smith era of the show and choose two episodes each of what they consider to be must-see eleventh Doctor stories to talk about.  But will they agree on the definition of ‘must-see’?! Do space-pigs fly?

For sane listeners, Ian and Michele take a look at Big Finish’s first multi-doctor story, The Sirens of Time.

So put the kettle on, pull up a chair and treat yourself to a jammy dodger and listen to the DWP team wax lyrical about Matt Smith and Doctor Who screened since 2010.

Enjoy the show.

Join Stephen, Leeson and James in the second of our newest series of Burning Issues episodes.  The Sonic Screwdriver.  Love it or hate it, it’s become a fundamental part of the show in much the same way as the TARDIS is.   But has it’s continual presence in the series since 2005 done the show any favours? Do writers rely on it too much now as a magic wand that can resolve plot points?  Join us in the campervan to find out what we think.

Michele and Ian also pop in and post a review of parts one and two of the second series of Counter Measures – the Big Finish spin-off series from Remembrance of the Daleks.
