    Finally, we see what all the fuss has been about! It's Ross' Doctor, Peter Davison. The new Doctor is young, but his regeneration is rough. He has new companions -- Adric, Nyssa (from Trakken) and Tegan (from Brisbane). It's the beginning of some rough years, lots of costumes instead of clothes, but some genius stories sprinkled in with some crowded control rooms. Listen while Ross explains why this Doctor resonated for him.

  • Gallifrey's Most Wanted -- Episode 004A "The English Way of Death"

    Books! We are exploring yet another new medium. This time it is a novel from the Missing Adventures of the Doctor published originally in 1996 by Virgin. The Doctor, Romana, and K-9 arrive in London in 1930 during a heat wave and a time vortex has been hijacked (along with a few bodies of local Englishmen) by an alien menace. It reads like an Agatha Christie novel. The characters are straight out of Noel Coward, and it's a jolly good romp. As usual, we take a few sidetracks that are relevant to us and we talk about next week's Doctor Who Convention, ReGeneration Con!

    Everyone's favorite Doctor, Tom Baker introduced in his first story, along with everyone's favorite companion, Sarah Jane Smith. It's a UNIT story, so the Brig and Benton are involved as well.

    Another regeneration! Third Doctor, Jon Pertwee, in his first adventure. We meet scientist, Liz Shaw and Brigadier Alexander Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart. Ross gets the synopsis down to about 14 minutes. The discussion is the first recording we ever made -- our test podcast. We liked the feel and pace of that conversation and didn't think we could recreate it. So please forgive the early days audio standards and enjoy Spearhead from Space!

We discuss all incarnations, from weekly two page strips found in "TV Comics" and "Countdown" to multi-page, multi-parters in Doctor Who Weekly and Doctor Who Magazine, to modern comic books from publishers like IDW and Titan. Just 20 mins of background and take on what we love about Doctor Who comics.

    For the first time since it originally aired in 1966, we were able to watch the Power of the Daleks in its entirety. Ross condensed all 6 episodes into a 16 minute synopsis, so the rest is discussion about the first ever regeneration, the Second Doctor, Patrick Troughton, The Daleks as great villains, the story behind the reconstructed episodes and more. Also, check out our Supplemental episodes that we are doing in between Story Episodes. They are fun and highly nerdy.

    But why another Doctor Who Podcast, you ask?

    Because we think we bring unique, informed perspectives to our experience and enjoyment of Doctor Who. And we want to share those with you.

    But firstly, who are we?

    Ross is the long-time fan. He's that guy who talked about Doctor Who before you'd ever heard of the show, who got angry when people talked about cheesy sets and funny accents and all the reruns. His brothers introduced him to the show on a fuzzy black and white TV and he was hooked (after enduring a lot of Tom Baker episodes). It took the fifth Doctor to turn him into a passionate Doctor Who fan, and he began collecting all the magazines, books, audios and video tapes he could find. The internet made it possible to order things all the way from the UK and share audio files and reconstructions of missing episodes all over the world (bless, the BBC). And all this before Christopher Eccelston noted how many places have "a North."

    Ross brings his extensive theater background to his love and analysis of Doctor Who. He's designed and built professional sets, stage managed, directed and tech'd live professional theater productions. He studied acting and has appeared in shows as diverse as 1776 and Comfort and Joy. He knows great story-telling and credits his early fandom of Doctor Who with honing that skill.

    Vic is the new fan. She's the idiot who mocked Ross' passion for the cheesy sets and had to endure his harangues about the "eternal quality of great stories." She was a reluctant convert. But one day, having reached the end of the internet, she clicked on the Doctor Who thumbnail on Netflix, and was transported to new galaxies. After gobbling up everything new, she demanded more and Ross had the decency not to laugh (though he might have said, "I told you so" once or twice . . . or a hundred). And then she moved on to the books and comics and magazines . . . the whole new worlds that Doctor Who introduces.

    She brings her training in history and law to her analysis. So while partial to the time travel fun of Doctor Who, she also loves his love of humanity (whether earthly or otherwise) and his deep and abiding sense of fairness.

    So come listen as these old friends share their love of, knowledge of, and analysis of all things Doctor Who.
