    Episode 70 - The 'classic' line up of Mark and Rob are back to discuss an obscure casting announcement that was made earlier in the week. Helping us bring some sanity to the conversation, friend of the podcast and star of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival Rob Lloyd returns! Not only do we discuss our own reactions to the news of Jodie Whittaker's casting, but also the reaction in the wider Doctor Who community and the media in general. Plus unlike Belarus, we finally break our Series 10 embargo: what were the highs and lows of the latest offerings and has Steven Moffat been able to redeem himself in our eyes?

To help us navigate through this minefield we are delighted to welcome back friend of the podcast, Rob Lloyd! Marvel as we wax lyrical about some of the top underrated monsters from our favourite TV show. They may have been unloved at the time and relegated to a dreary backwater by an ignorant fandom, but we love them and list them for your enjoyment. To top off the discussion, we talk about the one's we would love to see resurrected in the new series. All this plus more Ultimate Adventure insights from people who actually saw it and pressed the flesh of the great man (men!) who trod the boards. And what does our self enforced 'embargo' on Series 10 have in common with one of the best Seinfeld episodes of all time?

We give our verdict on the hits, the misses and try to answer the perennial question that has alluded us all "has there ever been a decent Doctor Who computer game?" Thanks to the immensely talented Doc Whom of the Diddly Dum Podcast for the collage of video game memories and Kevin Jordan for the audio clips from the Deus Ex Machina video game.

    Episode 52 - Doc Whom, one third of the Diddly Dum triumvirate, is our special guest in this episode and as the 11th (or is it 12th?) Doctor said before he carked it "It's a whopper!" In a wide ranging chat we talk about the state of Doctor Who podcasting scene, television accents, comparisons of the televisual landscape in the UK and Oz, Pot Black and Doc's undertaking of the 'great journey' where he is watching Doctor Who from the very start! All this plus our thoughts on #speechgate, the current 'fad' sweeping the U.S. Convention circuit where #Doctor Who actors are given key speeches from the show's history to recreate in front of a rabid fanboys and girls. More importantly, we finally answer the age old question, which Australian soap opera was adapted as a computer game for the humble Commodore 64?

    Episode 51 - in this episode Rob and Mark ponder the question: is Doctor Who appropriate for children and was the educational remit of the early years a red herring so kids could fool their parents into letting them watch the programme? Plus our delayed reactions to the Grand Moff's departure as show runner, how the ABC celebrated the show's 25th Aniversary and what fate befell those tapes? To wrap things up, we discuss the forthcoming Dr Who Cookbook and ask each other what recipes we would contribute if asked! (unlikely we know...)
