Episode 276 – In Mother Russia…

ttv_logo_newThis week’s episode of the podcast focuses on the first story in the second season of Big Finish’s Fourth Doctor Adventures with The Auntie Matter.  We provide our impressions of the story featuring the Fourth Doctor as portrayed by Tom Baker and the return of Mary Tamm in the role of Romana.

Also, we take a look at the first five issues of Year Two of Titan’s Eleventh Doctor Comic series, featuring a familiar comics companion from long ago, Abslom Daak: Dalek Killer, and a not-so-familiar returning companion, known so far as the Squire.

Plus, some recent news.

TTV-Logo-1400-150x150In this week’s podcast, we review the final two part story that rounds out the Fourth Doctor and Leela’s foray into Big Finish audios. First it’s Trail of the White Worm, followed with The Oseidon Adventure.

We give our impressions on these two stories, and sum up the series as a whole.

Also, some news of the week, including a certain assumption that show runner Steven Moffat may be around longer than previously thought.

Plus, a Gallifrey One update, and we announce the winners of our Free Comic Book Day give-away.

And, of course, your feedback.



Episode 225 – Elementary My Dear Vortex

TTV-Logo-1400-150x150In this week’s show we continue our look at the work that the actors who play the Doctor have done, outside the franchise.  This time, we examine Tom Baker starring in the BBC’s Sherlock Holmes – The Hound of the Baskervilles. We give our impression of Baker in another iconic role.

Also, some of the headlines making news this week in the world of Doctor Who.

Plus, Shaun is fresh back from Starfest in Denver this past weekend. He’ll give us a recap of the convention.

And. of course, your feedback.
