  • Doctor Who Series 11 - What We Know

    18 March 2018 (9:39am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 13 minutes and 9 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Andy AKA The Rev appears unexpectedly from the vortex to talk Doctor Who Series 11.

    So what do we know about Series 11, sitting here in March 2018?

    Naturally some of this content could be considered 'spoilers' to some fans, but not others.

    Proceed with some caution... and stick around for a skit at the end!



  • Rob and Dave Unplugged (The DW Show Presents: Fandom in the 80s, 90s and Beyond)

    11 March 2018 (11:09am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 1 hour, 39 minutes and 39 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    January 27, 2018 saw a lot of firsts... it was the first time Rob met Dave in person; the first time the guys recorded an episode of their show in person; the first time Rob had ever recorded a podcast with ANYONE else in the room; the first time they recorded with the guys from the New to Who podcast (see our February 25 episode); the first time Rob had met any of the Flight Through Entirety podcast team... and so on. You get the idea.

    Anyway, at some stage on that very busy day, amid recording an episode of the Doctor Who Show and an episode of New to Who, Rob and Dave found time to crack out a single microphone, mount it on a table, and have a conversation about Doctor Who fandom in Australia. Basically how they came into it; what it was like; conventions, and more. They end up moving through the topic and even onto talking about the modern era of fandom that they now no longer feel a major part of, but are extremely supportive of.

    Very personal... a little indulgent... and the sound quality isn't quite where the Doctor Who Show normally pitches, but if you're at all interested in our back stories, or Doctor Who fandom in Australia in the 80s and 90s in particular, this could be a very interesting episode for you to hear.

  • The Doctor Who Show S03 E02 - Fantasy Doctor Who (feat. New to Who)

    25 February 2018 (7:09am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 1 hour, 41 minutes and 23 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    The third series of The Doctor Who Show continues with Rob and Dave tackling a fun topic after the epic slugfest of last month ('RTD versus The Moff' if you missed it).

    This month they're talking 'Fantasy Doctor Who' and to help out on this topic, Steven and Daniel from the lovely New To Who podcast join Rob and Dave for most of the ep.

    Not only that, but the normally Perth-based lads recorded IN PERSON. Which also means, yes, for the first time in the show's history, Rob and Dave were also in the same room with each other, with Dave travelling up to Sydney from Melbourne. So do tune in to find out what happened when the podcasts got together. Hint: They had a TON of fun.

    Before that, of course, Rob and Dave do a quick whip around some recent Doctor Who news. Notably, however, they don't discuss the new Doctor Who logo, as that was announced less than 12hrs after they recorded the introduction to the episode. Curse you, BBC marketing. Dave also tells us about his new Blake's 7 podcast, sans-Rob, Space Fall.

    A splendid time awaits and be sure to let us know YOUR fantasy Doctor Who, too...!

    Episode Duration: 2 hours, 12 minutes and 1 second

    Direct Podcast Download

    Welcome to the third series of The Doctor Who Show!

    Rob and Dave are back and, to ease themselves into 2018, decide to take on a small and non-controversial topic...

    RTD versus The Moff

    Yes folks, now that the last helicopter out of Cardiff has departed (and related to that, bonus points if you get our pre-credits teaser), we feel the time has arrived where we can compare and contrast the complete output of both Russell T. Davies and Steven Moffat.

    That means we consider (and even comment on a great many of), the stories below. To keep it interesting, we tic-tac back and forth between Russell's first series and Steven's. Russell's second series and Steven's. And so on, and so forth.

    We hope you enjoy it and although there's a ton of listener comment on the topic at the end of this episode, we look forward to any additional commentary on the topic, once you've heard what we have to say.

    Next month we have something completely different, with a couple of very special guests, recorded under very special circumstances. Stay tuned.

  • Alternate Galaxies: Blake's 7

    2 January 2018 (7:09am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 1 hour, 18 minutes and 2 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Rob and Dave occasionally take a look at great TV series and movies they enjoy, broadly from the genres of sci-fi and fantasy.

    They call these episodes, Alternate Galaxies.

    In this episode, Rob cedes his seat to Richard, who has a far greater knowledge of today's topic... Blake's 7.

    Today, January 2, 2018, marks 40 years since the transmission of the first Blake's 7 episode - The Way Back - in the UK.

    --

    Blake's 7 is a British science fiction television series produced by the BBC. Four 13-episode series were broadcast on BBC1 between 1978 and 1981. It was created by Terry Nation, who also created the Daleks for the television series Doctor Who. The script editor was Chris Boucher. The main character, at least initially, was Roj Blake, played by Gareth Thomas. The series was inspired by various fictional media, including Robin Hood, Star Trek, Passage to Marseille, The Dirty Dozen, Brave New World and classic Western stories, as well as real-world political conflicts in South America and Israel.

    Blake's 7 was popular from its first broadcast, watched by approximately 10 million in the UK and shown in 25 other countries. Although many tropes of space opera are present, such as spaceships, robots, galactic empires and aliens, its budget was inadequate for its interstellar theme. Critical responses have been varied; some reviewers praised the series for its dystopian themes, strong characterisation, ambiguous morality and pessimistic tone, as well as displaying an "enormous sense of fun", but others have criticised its production values, dialogue and perceived lack of originality, with broadcaster and critic Clive James describing it as "classically awful".

    A limited range of Blake's 7 merchandise was issued, and books, magazines and annuals published. The BBC released music and sound effects from the series, and several companies made Blake's 7 toys and models. Four video compilations were released between 1985 and 1990, and the entire series was released in videocassette format starting 1991 and re-released during 1997, and as four DVD boxed sets between 2003 and 2006. The BBC produced two audio dramas during 1998 and 1999 that feature original cast members and broadcast by Radio 4. Although proposals for live-action and animated remakes have not been realised, Blake's 7 has been revived with two series of audio dramas, a comedic short film, and a series of fan-made audio plays.

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi is a 2017 American epic space opera film written and directed by Rian Johnson. It is the second film in the Star Wars sequel trilogy, following Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015). The film is produced by Lucasfilm and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. It stars Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Lupita Nyong'o, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, and Gwendoline Christie in returning roles, with Kelly Marie Tran, Laura Dern, and Benicio del Toro joining the cast. It also marks the final performance of Fisher, who died in December 2016, with the film being dedicated in her memory.

    The film was announced after Disney's acquisition of Lucasfilm in October 2012. It is produced by Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy and Ram Bergman, with Force Awakens director J. J. Abrams as an executive producer. John Williams, composer for the previous seven films, returns to compose the score. Scenes that required shooting at Skellig Michael in Ireland were filmed during pre-production in September 2015, with principal photography beginning at Pinewood Studios in England in February 2016 and ending in July 2016. Post-production wrapped up in September 2017.

    The Last Jedi had its world premiere in Los Angeles on December 9, 2017, and was released in the United States on December 15, 2017. The film received highly positive reviews, with praise for its plot, ensemble cast, action scenes, visual effects, musical score and emotional weight. Some critics considered it the best film of the franchise since The Empire Strikes Back.

    A sequel, provisionally titled Star Wars: Episode IX, is scheduled for December 20, 2019.

  • Alternate Galaxies: Babylon 5

    Episode Duration: 1 hour, 25 minutes and 35 seconds

    Rob and Dave have decided to occasionally take a look at great TV series and movies they enjoy, broadly from the genres of sci-fi and fantasy.

    Not only will they look at them from all the usual angles you'd expect, but also what the broad appeal to a Doctor Who fan might be.

    In this second episode, Babylon 5.

    Babylon 5 is an American science fiction television series created by writer and producer J. Michael Straczynski. After the successful airing of a test pilot movie on February 22, 1993, Babylon 5: The Gathering, in May 1993 Warner Brothers commissioned the series for production as part of its Prime Time Entertainment Network (PTEN).

    The first season premiered in the US on January 26, 1994, and the series ultimately ran for the intended five seasons. Describing it as having "always been conceived as, fundamentally, a five year story, a novel for television", Straczynski wrote 92 of the 110 episodes, and served as executive producer, along with Douglas Netter.

    Set between the years 2257 and 2262, it depicts a future where Earth has sovereign states, and a unifying Earth government. Colonies within the solar system, and beyond, make up the Earth Alliance, and contact has been made with other spacefaring species.

    The ensemble cast portray alien ambassadorial staff and humans assigned to the five mile-long Babylon 5 space station, a center for trade and diplomacy. Described as "one of the most complex programs on television", the various story arcs drew upon the prophesies, religious zealotry, racial tensions, social pressures, and political rivalries which existed within each of their cultures, to create a contextual framework for the motivations and consequences of the protagonists' actions.

    With a strong emphasis on character development set against a backdrop of conflicting ideologies on multiple levels, Straczynski wanted "to take an adult approach to SF, and attempt to do for television SF what Hill Street Blues did for cop shows."

  • Child Out of Time (The Doctor Who Show Presents: Hayden Gribble)

    15 October 2017 (6:09am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 57 minutes and 4 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    It brings me great delight to say that friend of the show (and podcaster in his own right), Hayden Gribble, has penned a book, which is coming out on the 16th of this month. Pretty much around the time you'll hear this episode.

    That book is called Child Out Of Time, a memoir of sorts, about a Doctor Who fan growing up in the Wilderness years of the series.

    With a cover by Doctor Who author Paul Magrs and a foreword by Andrew 'Full Circle' Smith, this really is a neat thing.

    So, to do my part in letting everyone know the book's out - find it at Amazon, folks - I've gone back to the Doctor Who Show episode #2 (from February, 2016).

    Why? Because I had Hayden on that episode. You see, Hayden's always fascinated me from the point of view that in Who fandom we have a bunch of people who watched the classic era and most of us have continued to enjoy Nu-Who. Or they're people who started with Nu-Who and some might have gone back to the classics, but I'd wager most haven't, even if they appreciate the history and gravitas it gives the new material.

    But Hayden's different. He didn't see the Classic Era on its first run, but then became a fan in the wilderness years, thanks initially to the TV Movie, so was primed and ready to be a major fan when Nu Who started, just like a Classic era fan... but was still this young guy at the time with a different story to most.

    That sort of thing's really interesting to me, so I wanted to chat with him on the show about being a younger who fan who likes the classic era, as a bit of a conversation piece.

    Now, towards the end of the chat back in 2016, Hayden mentions some projects coming up and one of them was Child out of Time... so it seemed highly appropriate to dust off this tape, and give you a taste of Hayden and I chatting about his years growing up with the show which he's now expanded upon - in quite a major way - in Child out of Time.

    Regular Who Wars contributor and some time Doctor Who Show contributor, The Rev (aka Andy) was MC at Sylester's panel, and provides the audio we can listen to today.

    You may find the sound quality varies at times; the perils of live recording, folks. We hope "being in the room" (in a virtual sense at least), overrides any niggles with the sound.

    Episode Duration: 1 hour, 19 minutes and 14 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Hello! We know some of you have been itching to hear the episode where we discuss Nu-Who's Beryl Reid... and here it is! In addition to that we discuss all the big Doctor Who news stories for the month of September and, of course, read your emails & have some fun along the way.

    Today's episode covers:

    CLASSIC WHO: Big Finish is creating a series of First Doctor adventures where David Bradley will take the lead. How does this sit with Dave, who rates the First Doctor as 'his' Doctor? What do Adam Lambert and Queen have to do with it and how do the guys feel about Big Finish in general at the present time and where its all going?

    NU-WHO: After they left Doctor Who, Matt Smith and Jenna Coleman both took on roles in Royal dramas, specifically, The Crown on Netflix and Victoria on ITV. Victoria's ratings have recently plunged. What's behind it all?

    NU-WHO: Bradley Walsh. A month on from last episode, the guys still don't know if he'll be Jodie Whittaker's companion, or at least have a part in the new series.

    NU-WHO: The 2017 Christmas Special synopsis has leaked in a peculiar manner... but nothing fans didn't already know, so the way it was yanked offline again was amusing.

    NU-WHO: According to 'Now We Are 600', Harriet Jones didn't die. Rob has a bit of a rant on this revelation pulling the rug on what everyone believed was an on-screen death. Dave ponders why people can't leave things alone.

    CLASSIC WHO: Dave's been on a personal mission this past month to watch a collection of 'lowly-regarded six parters' from the Classic Era. These include: The Seeds of Death, The Mutants, The Sensorites and The Time Monster. How did they hold up during this Classic Era bender?

    CLASSIC WHO: Rob, meanwhile, zipped through The Android Invasion recently, for the first time in 20 years or more. He gives a few thoughts on watching this less remembered story from an otherwise absolutely classic Season 13.

    CLASSIC WHO: Dave ponders what would have happened in Classic Era stories if the Doctor hadn't turned up. He comments on Masque of Mandragora, The Seeds of Doom, and City of Death, but can you think of more? Write in today!

    NU-WHO: Who is Nu-Who's Beryl Reid? More specifically, what are examples of stunt casting (bad) or celebrity casting (good), since the series returned in 2005? Dave and Rob bring examples of each, as well as thoughts from our listeners. Do you agree? Let us know what you think of what's covered in this feature for next ep's mailbag.

    FINALLY: Emails from Christopher Bryant and Mike Solko relating to our recent Buffy episode. Did they enjoy it? And Ezra Penny chimes in on the topic of episodes that are generally slated by fans but which he really enjoys.

    Dave also comments on it being launch season for US television, with particular comments on The Orville.

    Thanks everyone, as always, for listening. We greatly appreciate your ears, your emails and your tweets and, if you really want to make our day, why not leave us an iTunes review sometime? It really helps us get noticed.

    See you in October for both our monthly show where we'll be looking at the Peter Davison era of Doctor Who.

    Buffy the Vampire Slayer is an American supernatural drama television series created by Joss Whedon under his production tag, Mutant Enemy Productions with later co-executive producers being Jane Espenson, David Fury, David Greenwalt, Doug Petrie, Marti Noxon, and David Solomon.

    The series premiered on March 10, 1997, on The WB and concluded on May 20, 2003, on UPN. The series narrative follows Buffy Summers (played by Sarah Michelle Gellar), the latest in a line of young women known as "Vampire Slayers", or simply "Slayers".

    In the story, Slayers are "called" (chosen by fate) to battle against vampires, demons, and other forces of darkness. Being a young woman, Buffy wants to live a normal life, but as the series progresses, she learns to embrace her destiny.

    Like previous Slayers, Buffy is aided by a Watcher, who guides, teaches, and trains her. Unlike her predecessors, Buffy surrounds herself with a circle of loyal friends who become known as the "Scooby Gang".

    Direct Podcast Download

    Hello! For a month where we approached this episode thinking, "What on earth is there to talk about (aside from our monthly feature)?" a surprising amount dropped in the week before we recorded and we respond in kind.

    Today's episode - broadly - covers:

    NU-WHO: Bradley Walsh is strongly rumoured to be Jodie Whittaker's companion in Series 11. Who is he? What's he been in? How might this play out in terms of a young-looking Doctor with a much older companion?

    CLASSIC WHO: A new version of Shada is on the way. Rob can barely contain his boredom. Is it needed? How will it look? So many questions.

    NU-WHO: Brand-new commentary on Jodie Whittaker from Steven Moffat and Russell T Davies. Jodie's also been getting around some radio stations.

    NU-WHO: Rumours of Jenna Coleman appearing in the Christmas special remain just that for now - rumours. However a picture of the new Ben Jackson appears and pleases both Rob and Dave in terms of his likeness.

    CLASSIC WHO/NU-WHO: Red White and Who: The Story of Doctor Who in America was released earlier this week and Rob and Dave had an advance copy with many of the chapters in it. They talk about the book and US fandom.

    CLASSIC WHO: August 29 is the 30th Anniversary of Dave's first Doctor Who club meeting that he attended with his Dad, aged 7. Rob realises, on air, that 1987 was when he attended his first fan event, aged 12.

    CLASSIC WHO/NU-WHO: Rob gives a podcast shout-out to I'll Explain Later & Complete Menagerie. He also mentions Progtor Who recently having it's third birthday and notes that Who Wars (which is the father of today's Doctor Who Show), first went out on Sept 7 2014; almost three years, too.

    CLASSIC WHO: Dave's been watching the Hartnell classic, The Ark, and finds the message it sends being extremely relevant for today.

    NU-WHO: Rob calls for submissions to our "Nu-Who's Beryl Reid" episode, set for September 24. "Everyone talks about Classic Who and stunt casting... but who are the celebrities in Nu-Who that really made you sit up, both for good reasons and bad?!?" Get your submissions in ASAP.

    CLASSIC WHO/NU-WHO: Our main topic for this episode is Doctor Who stories that listeners (and us) either didn't get or just didn't enjoy as children, but which we really enjoy as adults. These are almost all classic era stories, but one Nu-Who bolter makes it through at the end. Features emails from Mark Smith and Jim Hall in addition to listener suggestions from: Jim Hall, The Polis Box, Mark Watts, Isaac Dakin, James Stoker, Ganesh Projoy, Jon Arnold, Brendan Jones, Brian Dobson, Paul Scoones, spankybackpack, John Hole, Dave Ringo, Dylan Rees, We Are Cult, David Lancaster, Hayden Gribble, Christopher Bryant, and The Ginger Luke. Thanks for your thoughts!

    FINALLY: The second half of our mega email from Jim Hall, discussing the Doctor Who Magazine comics in the era of Tom Baker's final season.

    Thanks everyone, as always, for listening. We greatly appreciate your ears, your emails and your tweets and, if you really want to make our day, why not leave us an iTunes review sometime? It really helps us get noticed on there.

    See you in September for both our monthly show and the first in a new series of 'Alternate Galaxies' episodes where, for our first episode, we'll put Buffy the Vampire Slayer under the spotlight and let you know why, as a Doctor Who fan, you might be interested in watching it (if you haven't watched it already).

    What you are about to hear is the story of a connection, a connection that was made between a television series and a viewer's life.

    The You and Who books are the story of that connection, as told by the people who watch the programmes that make us come alive. Chiefly, of course, Doctor Who.

    This podcast will relate some of the stories from those books... and beyond.

    In this episode:

    Choices by Michael Gilroy-Sinclair
    Reach out and touch me: Doctor Who and the Carnival of Monsters by Christopher Bryant

    With an intermission featuring Rob Irwin talking to JR Southall.
