    Blue Box Podcast - Episode 14

    Hey Who fans and welcome. Along with the news round up I give you my review of The Caretaker and if it floated my Tardis, I mean, boat.


    The News

    Sadly, actress Maggie Stables has passed away. Having appeared in twenty Big Finish audio plays, most notably as companion Evelyn to the Sixth Doctor, it's a big shame for fans of hers. I hadn't heard her work until I found out about her passing but after listening to some samples she really did give great performances.

    Now the BBC have vacated their main head office (which I think, for the record, is a huge mistake and confusing decision) there's lots of equipment and TV stuff lying around which is going to be auctioned off. Peter Pattinson Auctioneers will hold various online auctions from Tues 4th November to Friday 7th November. One of the items is a huge 3.5m wide by 2.5m high canvas backdrop of Matt Smith as the 11th Doctor used in promotions. If you've got the room for it, it's a great piece to own. Details for the auction can be found here (scroll down to BBC Memorabilia).

    Titan Comics will be showing off the new 12th Doctor comic run at New York Comic Con on the 10th and 11th of October. You'll also be able to pick up NYCC exclusive covers for the already launched 10th and 11th Doctor comics too. Wow, lots of variants for this one!

    "The Caretaker" Review

    Another one of those Who episodes that's full of fun and humour that's sure to please the kids this time. The Caretaker wasn't the strongest episode this series but certainly wasn't terrible. Afterwards we're still left asking "who is Missy and what is the Neversphere?"

    What are your thoughts on this one? Let me know on the site, Twitter or Facebook.

    Thanks for stepping into the Tardis for episode 14 and look forward to chatting all things Who next time. Until then - Allons-y!

    Blue Box Podcast - Episode 13

    Welcome back inside the Tardis as I get you up to speed with what's happening in the world of Who, a review of Time Heist and then my thoughts on Series 8 so far.


    The News

    Two new Who box sets have arrived. First up here in the UK is The Complete David Tennant Years DVD box set which features all of his episodes including all three series' plus the four specials. Second to be released in the US on Nov 4th is The Complete Matt Smith Years blu ray box set which features all of Matt Smith's episodes including the Christmas specials and other episodes. If you're into either Doctor and don't own any of the episodes as yet this could be the purchase for you.

    Casting confirmed for the Christmas Special. Along with Michael Troughton, Natalie Gumede, Faye Marsay and Nathan McMullen the great Nick Frost has also been confirmed. Known mainly for his movies along side Simon Pegg his acting is top notch so looking forward to what he will bring to this years Crimbo episode.

    McCoy's Ghostlight is getting the vinyl treatment and is available to pre-order now through SilvaScreen Records. As this soundtrack was mastered while everything was still analogue this will sound amazing on vinyl so highly recommended for your vinyl collection. Landing 13th October 2014.

    "Time Heist" Review

    Time Heist split opinions pretty much evenly with lots of equally happy and disappointed fans. I give you my thoughts on this episode but does it hit the right beats for me? Thank you also for tweeting me during the recording with your reviews on this.

    Kai McNamee sent me this on Facebook after I finished recording but does sum the episode up quite well:

    "I thought "Time Heist" was a bit of a let down, especially after the dynamic 'Next Time' trailer. I felt the story wasn't really interesting enough to grab my attention, with no help from the ineffective supporting cast members. It's unfortunate, but I genuinely didn't care about these characters, and they just weren't engaging enough for me to care about their 'deaths'. Plus, I thought it was fairly predictable: I knew Ms Delphox would be responsible for the heist in some form, and I knew that the assisting characters weren't killed off."

    Let me know your thoughts on Time Heist.

    Series 8 So Far

    Has Peter Capaldi impressed enough so far? Is Clara fitting the bill and is Series 8 living up to the hype? I give you a quick run-down on how I feel Series 8 is going and I'd be interested to hear your thoughts too.

    Thanks for stepping into the Tardis for episode 13 and look forward to chatting all things Who next time. Until then - Allons-y!
