Tag Archive: Romana II
Illness has delayed us again, so please forgive our tardiness again this week. However, we have returned and this week we explore the Fourth Doctor and Roman II story, Meglos. Find out what we have to say about this one.
Plus, more Power of the Daleks news, which brings some schedule foul ups for us, once again.
Also, other news of the week.
In this week’s podcast, we take a look at the final installment in the ‘E-Space Trilogy’ with Warriors’ Gate. We give our impressions on this last in the story arc and then we take a look back at the trilogy as a whole.
Also, some big news for Kansas City’s Planet Comicon, and I mean bigger than Shatner (well, for us and other Whovians). A Doctor is coming to the midwest!
Plus, some pretty big news for Gallifrey One as well.
And, we’ll look at some other news that came out this week, including comic book news.
Oh, and of course, your feedback!
In this week’s show we look at two, yes two Fourth Doctor stories. First is the third in the line of Big Finish Audios featuring Four and Leela, in the historical piece, The Wrath of the Iceni. Then we make a trip back into E-space to visit a thus far stranded Fourth Doctor and Romana II for the blood curdling story, State of Decay.
Also, some grim news as we lost some more Doctor Who connections this paste week. And some slightly uplifting things as well, we promise.
And of course, your feedback.
