Following on from our mini-season of Burning Issues podcasts earlier in the year Stephen Tom and James are back with the first in a new series.

It’s often been said that Doctor Who takes its lead from other television shows and films, and certainly, there are times when a new story’s inspiration is apparent. But its also widely accepted that Doctor Who is unique and despite many attempts, not one show has been able to emulate the precise je ne said quoi our beloved show so clearly has. So what is it? A Trend Setter or Follower? Tune in to hear our take on the matter.

Also, this episode sees the last of our popular Seventh Heaven instalments. Stephen (no,not that one, the other one) has finally finished his quest to watch all of the Sylvester McCoy stories for the very first time. Tune in to hear what he thinks about The Curse of Fenric and Survival.

Join us next week for a leisurely discussion (yes, we do those sometimes.  What?!) about just what an older actor playing the Doctor will mean for the show.

Join James and Tom for the start of a new era of The Doctor Who Podcast!  In this episode, they unwrap and welcome a brand new, shiny, polished, optimistic new DWP host. But who is it?! Well, tune in to find out as we examine his Doctor Who fan credentials. Or check out the Hosts page if you are ultra-impatient!   The chaps also talk about the recent controversy created by a certain trailer being shown for the first – and perhaps the only time – at this year’s San Diego Comic Con.

All this and part five of Seventh Heaven, AND a review from Ian and Michele of The Sands of Life and War Against the Laan – two recent Fourth Doctor and Romana plays from Big Finish Productions.  Phew!

Join us next week as we kick off with part 1 of our second Burning Issues mini-series.

Returning to the fertile sanctuary of Big Finish this episode,  Trevor, Leeson and Michele review the Paul McGann boxset series of audio dramas, Dark Eyes.

Heralding a darker, edgier Eighth Doctor, Dark Eyes takes the Doctor that once deliriously marvelled at how well a pair of borrowed shoes fitted, into a new and very exciting direction.

Join the Three Who Were Never Meant to Rule, Ever, as they feast upon the smorgasbord of story that Dark Eyes presents for us.

We also feature the epic continuation of our Seventh Heaven series, where Stephen Elsden is watching, for the first time, ALL the stories from the Seventh Doctor era!

Ever sat back and marvelled at Steven Moffat‘s ability to weave multi-threaded plotlines?  What a fantastic mystery Clara was, set up almost 12 months before the resolution was presented on our telly screens.  Oh, and don’t forget the ‘Who precisely IS River Song’ arc that kicked off all the way back in 2008. But sometimes, Mr Moffat asks wonderfully intriguing questions – and then seems to forget about them. Or does he?!  Join James and Stephen from A Madman With a Box Podcast as they shine the DWP spotlight on these seemingly unanswered questions and chat about a couple of Kooky theries you wonderful listeners have sent in.

If that wasn’t enough, Stephen Elsden returns in part 3 of our increasingly popular Seventh Heaven mini-series to talk about Rememberance of the Daleks and the Happiness Patrol. Does carnage ensue? Tune in to find out!

Join Leeson, Trevor and Michele in the Campervan this coming weekend in an extra edition of the Doctor Who Podcast as they give Big Finish‘s Dark Eyes the DWP Review treatment.

We return to the deep bountiful well of Big Finish in this episode, with Michele and Trevor reviewing one of the latest trilogies from Big Finish.  Sylvester McCoy as the 7th Doctor takes centre stage in the audios Protect & Survive, Black & White and Gods & Monsters.

We also feature the second part of our Seventh Heaven series, in which Stephen Elsden continues his journey through the previously unseen era of the 7th Doctor.
