Episode 264 – Searching for Sylvester

ttv_logo_newIn this week’s podcast we return to our “Beyond the Doctor” installments and pick up where we left off last year with Seventh Doctor actor, Sylvester McCoy. This time we look at the 1979 horror film, Dracula, also starring Frank Langella in the title role as well as Laurence Olivier, Donald Pleasence and Kate Nelligan. We give our impression of the film as a whole, as well as the performance (what little there was) of McCoy.

Also, news of the week, some sad, but some happy.

And of course, your… oops, no. Mailbox issues may be to blame for the lack of feedback this week. Well, that’s what we’re telling ourselves this time.

Enjoy!

Episode 240 – Ace!

TTV LOGO NEWIn this week’s podcast we draw together the story arc in the Seventh Doctor’s era that has come to be known as “The Ace Trilogy”, comprised of Ghostlight, The Curse of Fenric, and Survival. That kicks off our discussion of our “Companion Archive’ featuring Dorothy Gale “Ace” McShane. We discuss the trilogy and the impact that Ace, played by actress Sophie Aldred, had on the series and the Doctor. We also study her relationship to the Doctor and how the character progressed from her first appearance in Dragonfire, all the way to her final television appearance in Survival (of course, she would appear once again in Dimensions in Time, but we try to forget that).

Also, our reaction to some of the news-of-the-week in Doctor Who.

And, of course, your feedback.

Enjoy!!!

Then another Big Finish Productions audio, this time with the addition of new companion, Hex in The Harvest.

Plus, a look at some more Series Nine news, including so Doctor Who favorites of none other than the Doctor himself, Peter Capaldi.

And, of course, your feedback.

Enjoy!
