Episode 281 – … and the Ugly

ttv_logo_newIn this week’s podcast we travel back to the William Hartnell era and examine the Season 3 story, Galaxy 4. We take a three step approach this time, looking at the Target novelization, the remastered and released reconstruction surrounding the recently recovered third episode, and a reconstruction made using the available images and audio by Loose Cannon Productions.

We also look at some news of the week, including  new app for IOS users from Big Finish, and the announcement of the 12th Doctor’s new sonic screwdriver being released as a toy.

And, of course, your feedback.


Episode 268 – Reconstruction of the Fables

ttv_logo_newIn this week’s show we dip our collective toes in the waters of what is often called a reconstructed or ‘recon’ story in Doctor Who. We examine the First Doctor story, The Crusade, featuring Ian, Barbara and Vicki. We give our impressions on the television story, including the two missing episodes, lovingly reconstructed with the use of telesnaps and scrolling text by the group, Loose Canon. And, we couple that with a review of the novelization, Doctor Who and the Crusaders, written by David Whitaker, who also wrote the TV story.

Plus, some announcements and a look at the news-of-the-week.

And, of course, your feedback.
