Among this week’s title confusion, we take a look at the latest episode of Doctor Who Series 10 with a review of Extremis. We try to unlock some of the mysteries of the title as well as give our impressions on the story.
Also, some news of the week.
And of course, lots and lots of wonderful feedback this week,
It’s here! It’s finally arrived. We survived the “wilderness year”, (okay, yes we got an episode at Christmas, and yes it’s not fair to call it a wilderness year because that cheapens the period of drought from 1989 until 2005), but Doctor Who is finally back on our television screens!
This, our Easter Saturday episode covers the Doctor and Nardole and the introduction of new companion Bill in The Pilot.
We offer our opinions on the story, and be aware, this is a SPOILER FILLED EPISODE of the podcast.
We asked the listeners to vote on the WORST monsters to grace Doctor Who. The dregs, the deplorable, the ones despised by fandom. You know the ones. In this week’s show we take the top ten vote-getters, and then rise to their defense and explain why they’re actually pretty great. Here’s what we thought.
Also, some news of the week, including guest announcements for Planet Comicon in KC.
In this week’s episode we look at two Fifth Doctor and Nyssa stories from the Big Finish Doctor Who Main Range. First it’s the four story anthology offering, Circular Time. Then we examine Renaissance of the Daleks. Find out what we liked and didn’t like in these two offerings.
Plus, we look at some news of the week, including another trailer for the upcoming series 10.
In this week’s podcast we revisit one of our favorite stories, City of Death. But, this time it’s for a review of the novelization of the classic TV story, written by James Goss, from the story by Douglas Adams and David Fisher. We compare the treatment and discuss it’s transformation from on-screen gem to book form.
In this week’s show we examine two versions of a classic Dalek tale.
First, it’s the recently released animated version of the classic Second Doctor story, The Power of the Daleks featuring Patrick Troughton’s first appearance as the Doctor. He joins companions, Ben and Polly on this adventure.
Then, we look at the fan mounted The Power of the Daleks – Reimagined, which is a modernized take on the classic tale, presented to fans as part of a fundraising effort for charities back in 2013.
In this week’s episode we look at two pieces from our friends over at Candy Jar Books. First, it’s the final novel in the third phase of the Lethbridge-Stewart series, Mind of Stone by Iain McLaughlan. This will be a spoiler filled review of that book.
Then, we look at The Xmas Files featuring three short stories including The Feast of Evans by Simon A Forward, The Fright Before Christmas by Tom Dexter, and Home for Christmas by a collection of the authors who have worked on the LS series.
Plus, we have some convention announcements, and a look at some of the news that came out this week.
