Join James and Leeson and they bring you a special edition of the Doctor Who Podcast.  The chaps are joined by the charismatic organiser of the already iconic Whooverville conventions, Mr Stephen Hatcher.  Whooverville has established itself as laid back, intimate event on the convention circuit, mainly by holding its first two events in a railway shed in darkest Derbyshire.  Now in its fourth year, Whooverville has moved to a new, gleaming, shiny venue in central Derby. James, Leeson and Steve chat about Whooverville’s past and look forward to the next event, Whooverville 4, being held on 1st September 2012 where attendees will be joined by Peter Purves, Terry Malloy, Richard Franklin, Donald Gee for a day of geekiness.

Also, Steve announces a thus-far unannounced guest Whooverville 4 guest exclusively on this very DWP – and frankly, this new guest makes the event an even more exciting prospect!  Tune in to find out just who is coming to Whooverville…..!!

Check out Whooverville 4’s facebook page where you can keep abreast with current developments, find out information about tickets, the venue and even say how excited you are about it!

As the first part of the world enters Xmas 2011 (that would be Kiritimati, fact fans), the DWP releases its Christmas episode for 2011.

So many people to thank for their contributions to this years Christmas celebration. Leeson and Harry from the Radio Rassilon podcast for their song and contribution to the skit. Comedian and downright musical genius Ashley Frieze for his downright genius musical interlude.

And of course Ian, Michelle, Harry, Steven, John, Tin Dog and Leeson for their Christmas wishes.

Enjoy this little slice of Christmas, DWP-style as you tuck into your turkey or pull your cracker.

Merry Christmas from the extended DWP family.
