    In their first podcast of 2016, Phil and Paul have a listen to Legend of The Cybermen, a sixth Doctor audio story from Big Finish. In this sequel to the Mind Robber, The War Games AND the Wheel in Space, the Doctor teams up again with Zoe Heriot and Jamie McCrimmon to tackle the Cybermen in a most unpredictable place. So will Phil and Paul enjoy this rather continuity heavy story? Listen to find out but be aware that there are spoilers aplenty in this weeks podcast!

    And in the news this week, Peter Capaldi and Steven Moffat hint that series 10 could be their last, Paul McGann is up for returning as the Doctor on TV and in Omega's Tat Corner, two items of tat that neither Phil nor Paul understand.

    Full of booze and turkey, Phil and Paul review this years Christmas special The Husbands of River Song written by Steven Moffat. Did they find this years special to be the present they wanted from Santa or was it a disappointing pair of y-fronts from a relative they don't know? Well, if you listen to this it may be difficult to tell but they review this story with the same level of professionalism they deliver each week. In other words - none.

    And in the news this week, it's the final stats of the year, the possibility of Doctor Who being made by an independent production company and in Omega's Tat Corner it's drinks related tat!

    Ho ho ho!! Welcome to the Who's He? Podcast Christmas Special as once again the Doctor Who specials of Christmas past are plundered to reveal The Christmas Invasion featuring the full debut of David Tennant as the Doctor. Join Ebeneezer Phil and Frosty Paul as they reminisce about the first Doctor Who Christmas special since The Feast of Steven and ponder whether this story required more of the Doctor and whether this is a stuffed tasty turkey of a Christmas story or a certifiable plum duff?

    And in the news, Phil admits to his lies from the previous podcast and brings more stats to the proceedings, new writers hinted for Series 10 and one last Christmas gift in Omega's Tat Corner.

    This is it folks, the series finale! Join Phil and Paul as they ponder over Hell Bent but is the review you were expecting? Was this the episode that Phil and Paul were expecting? Well, it appears not and don't hold back with what they exactly thought which could put them at odds with the rest of fandom! However, this week the reviewing duo discuss whether lots of good ideas make a good story, new sonic screwdrivers, the return of Clara Oswald and just how good did that classic TARDIS console room look?

    There is also listener feedback on the finale and also some familiar voices sum up series 9.

    And in the news, another update on the North American DVD release of The Underwater Menace, the annual Bonhams auction, the last stats of this year and in Omega's Tat Corner it's yet another Christmas jumper and model kit that has Phil salivating.

    As this series of Doctor Who rumbles on towards it's conclusion, Phil and Paul look at the penultimate episode Heaven Sent by Steve Moffat. And what an episode! The reviewing duo are lost for words at the majesty of Peter Capaldi, Steven Moffat's script, Murray Gold's musical score and Rachel Talalay's direction! Mind you, they can't help themselves and nit pick at things that don't make sense (to them anyway) but Phil tries his hand at not one but two plot theories!

    And in the news this week, the sad passing of Anthony Read, could the German DVD release of series 9 hold the key as to when it will be released in the rest of the world, the dreaded stats and in Omega's Tat Corner it's jewellery and bathroom fun!

Or has she? Join Phil and Paul in the podcasting equivalent of a trap street and listen to them ponder over the merits of Ashildr's plan to entice the Doctor into her web of deceit and was this a good exit for Jenna Coleman and will she back?

    In this weeks edition of the Who's He? Podcast, Phil and Paul take a sleepy eyed look at Sleep No More written by Mark Gatiss. In what seems to be a story that has divided fans (no change there), they try to decide whether this story makes any sense, their views on found footage stories and whether Mark Gatiss wrote this with Condo in mind.

    And in a change to the usual news section (there are still stats, so don't worry stats fans!), Phil and Paul report on their adventures at the Doctor Who Festival.

    After being away last week, a returning Phil and Ghostbuster Paul tackle not only The Zygon Invasion but also The Zygon Inversion in a podcast episode that Phil lovingly refers to as a "double banker". And what a 2 parter! With it's themes of tolerance, terrorism and a damn fine performance from Peter Capaldi (seriously, give that man an Oscar, a BAFTA, an Emmy, whatever! Give him something!) and Jenna Coleman, the Who's He? Podcast review what could be the best story since the show was revived in 2005 (hey, that rhymes!).

    And in the news this week, Steven Moffatt quashes the rumours that series 10 will only be 6 episodes, while Peter Capaldi chastises the BBC for the scheduling times for series 9 (hey, that rhymed again, I'm on a roll!) and in Omega's Tat Corner, Character Options and Toys R Us do a deal to bring you dolly tat!

    This week Phil and Paul cast their eye over episode 6 of this series of Doctor Who, The Woman Who Lived. Unfortunately neither of them found this particularly entertaining but neither did they actively dislike it. What a quandary! But when you have a pointless appearance of Thundercats and one of the lead characters channelling an episode of Blackadder, there is still plenty to discuss!

    And in the news this week, David Tennant and Catherine Tate are confirmed to return to their roles of the Doctor and Donna Noble for Big Finish, K9 and our very own Omega are set to star in their own feature film and in the now film superstar Omega and his Tat Corner, it's the return of festive tat!

    Also in this weeks episode, Phil talks to author Lynn Hamilton about her book Mysteries Of Doctor Who: Mythos, Speculation and Continuity and how she became a fan of the show.

    And in the news, good news for Sir John Hurt, the dreaded stats and in Omega's Tat Corner it's silver tat and a jumper that should come with a health warning.

    A bamboozled Phil and Paul look at this weeks offering of Doctor Who, Before The Flood. Why are they bamboozled though Bootstrap paradoxes that's why! Yes, as they try to get their heads around this concept, they find time to disagree on the merits of breaking the fourth wall and the Doctor once again picking up his guitar. However, they do agree on a lot of things and weigh up whether this was a successful two part story and also delve into whether Doctor Who is striking the right balance for audiences old and new.

    And in the news, the sad loss of Derek Ware, photographic evidence the episode 3 of Web Of Fear, the future of K9 and of course the dreaded stats! Meanwhile, Omega's Tat Corner is full of LEGO!

    This week Phil and Paul review Under The Lake, the 3rd episode of series 9 of Doctor Who. And once again the planets have aligned as they both agree on this episode! But was it a return to classic stories of old and did the ensemble cast really gel? Do ghosts exist? Well, they don't answer that question but rest assured they get stuck right into this story and come out the other side with their heads held high reading listener feedback!

    And in the news, a new Doctor Who spin off show was announced that caught everyone off guard, John Hurt reprises his role as the War Doctor for Big Finish which REALLY caught everyone off guard and once again Phil and Paul get an attack of stats!

    This week Phil and Paul cast their eye over The Witch's Familiar, the 2nd episode of series 9 of Doctor Who. After enjoying last weeks episode (with reservations!) what will they think of this weeks tale of a duplicitous Davros, a manipulative Missy and Dalek sewers that whiff of writers block? Well, both of them have a lot to talk about, so settle back in your chairs and listen to two disgruntled podcasters moaning!

    And in the news this week, the rumour that David Tennant and Catherine Tate are to join Big Finish, just what did happen to episode 3 of The Web Of Fear and in Omega's Tat Corner it's what the world has been waiting for.....Missy tat!

    Doctor Who is back and so is the Who's He? Podcast! After Skype got over its little hiccup (thanks a bunch Skype), Phil and Paul at last were able chat about The Magician's Apprentice, episode 1 of series 9. And what an opening episode! Davros, Missy, Skaro, Daleks old and new and a man made out of snakes that glides around like Cliff Richard on roller skates! But what did Paul and Phil think of this story and was it worth the wait? Well, there were caveats to them enjoying this episode, in fact it has lot to do with the Doctor's guitar styling's to be exact! But towards the end both Phil and Paul start rambling like they were in a rest home for elderly gentlemen which may cause some people to switch off.

    And in the news it's the return of the dreaded stats, Jenna Coleman is confirmed as leaving Doctor Who, series 9 episodes titles have been released and more Big Finish Torchwood casting news.

    In an occasional series, the Who's He? Podcast talk about those people who have travelled with the Doctor over the last 50 or so years - the companions. Those people who have stepped through the doors of the TARDIS and have seen the wonder and the dangers of travelling in time and space.

    In this edition, Phil is joined by Erika Ensign from the Verity Podcast and Stephen Schapansky from Radio Free Skaro who have selected as their favourite companion, Clara Oswald. They discuss why Clara is the perfect companion, just how important a strong character such as hers is to keeping Doctor Who fresh and they both pick the moments that defined Clara for them.

    In their never ending quest to get through their series 2 retrospective, Phil and Paul look at The Satan Pit. After the magnificence of The Impossible Planet, is this story a satisfying conclusion or does it fall into the same pit of mediocrity that befalls many a 2 part story? However, the discussion leads Paul to wonder why the bases Chief of Security only carries one bullet and Phil tries to figure out why announcements must be made when raising shields.

    And in the news, a mini prequel to series 9 is to be shown in front of the Dark Water/Death Heaven 3D cinema showings, the New York Symphonic Spectacular has been cancelled, Welsh BAFTA and Hugo awards news and in Omega's Tat Corner, some very nice looking but expensive tat!

    This week Phil and Paul tackle the Target novelisation of The Awakening, that "ahem", fondly remembered 5th Doctor story written by Eic Pringle. During their discussion, they talk about cadaverous old men, cavaliers and roundheads and Phil laments that this was a missed opportunity for Doctor Who to reference one of his favourire horror films.

    And in the news, a new series 9 trailer, the air time on BBC America for The Magicians Apprentice, Strax meets Jago and Litefoot in a Big Finish story and in Omega's Tat Corner, it's a tat update!

    In this edition of the Who's He? Podcast, Phil and Paul look at Minuet in Hell from Big Finish. In this tale of debauchery, lost identities and American politics, both Phil and Paul remain astounded at the bad accents on display but also the majesty of a Nicholas Courtney performance that lifts a very average Doctor Who story.

    But in the news this week, rumours that series 10 will not air in 2016 which leads Paul and Phil to discuss the many theories that tag along with this rumour, Reece Shearsmith is cast in series 9 of Doctor Who and NASA prove they have nothing better to do than name craters on a moon after their favourite sci-fi characters.

    Live from London, the Who's He? Podcast team of Phil & Paul who both live in London, return to their ongoing series 2 retrospective with a look at The Impossible Planet which doesn't take place in London. This is a classic of Who so do the lads both feel that this is still a classic or does the fact this story isn't set in London hurt it somewhat? They also wander off topic and start discussing Disney's The Black Hole and both marvel at the wonderful London accents used by the actors.

    And in the news this week, a Doctor Who 3D film event that disgustingly won't be shown in London and BARB will take into account online viewing figures, especially those in London.

    Visit London.

    To kick off this weeks podcast, Phil and Paul play catch up with all the news they have missed over the last couple of weeks which means a recap on the announcement of the series 9 premiere date and the trailer! Sorry! But there is the news that series 10 has already been commissioned, some guest announcements for the Doctor Who Festival in November and some more Big Finish news!

    But once the news is out of the way, they crack on with their review of the novelisation of The Power of The Daleks. This is a change for them both as this isn't strictly a Target book and they had no DVD to compare the book to! So sit back and listen to the pair of them discuss devious Daleks, characters with no redeeming qualities and a love triangle worthy of The Love Boat!

    In a momentous news week for Doctor Who, Phil takes the extraordinary step of interrupting this weeks news section with the air date for series 9, a brand spanking new series 9 trailer and a trailer featuring the Doctor for Lego Dimensions! But back in the past with the lads original news item, they try to catch up on the news they have missed over the last couple of weeks and they even try to fit in a quick soujorn to Omega's Tat Corner.

    But the real reason for this weeks episode is the continuation of their audio commentary for The Stones Of Blood episodes 3 and 4. So queue more facts from the day of original transmission and Tony yet again continues with his extremely libellous facts on Tom Baker!

    It's that time of year where Phil and Paul get Tony back on the podcast in a sweltering July day for an audio commentary and this time it's The Stones of Blood episodes 1 and 2. And because it was so damn hot, they chose to not do any news this week and just crack on with proceedings. So queue lots of facts from the day of original episode broadcast, Tony gives an insight into Tom Bakers treatment of the working classes and this commentary also features lots of talk about sex toys.

    What have the Romans ever done for us? According to Boudica not much as Phil and Paul review the 4th Doctor Big Finish story The Wrath of The Iceni. In this story of ancient Britain and the rebellion against the empire (the Roman one that is), Phil and Paul have a little disagreement of their own as both have opposing views on this story and on the Doctor! So sit back and listen to two old gits who most likely had first hand experience of the Roman occupation.

    And in the news, Steven Moffat gets an OBE, a series 9 teaser trailer, San Diego Comic Con tat that didn't make it into Omega's Tat Corner and John Nathan Turner gets his own bus.

    And Phil now refers to you all as fans, not listeners as his ego runs rampant.

    This week Phil and Paul give their series 2 retrospective a dusting down with a look The Idiot's Lantern written by Mark Gatiss. Both of them seem to have a bit of hard time with this one, with ropey acting and the Doctor and Rose being more smug that it is humanly possible to stomach. However, Phil gets cold feet while criticising an actor with dubious connections while Paul quickly distances himself by pinching the last lifeboat.

    And in the news, the Doctor Who Festival is coming to London this November, casting and writer news for series 9 and in Omega's Tat Corner, John Barrowman gets scrutinised and a new Doctor Who Plush doll for which Paul uses to plug the all new Phil Plush doll that comes with four adorable catchphrases!

    Once again Phil & Paul dip their toes into the literary world with a review of the Target novelisation of that confirmed fan fvourite Terror Of The Vervoids by Pip and Jane Baker (note the sarcasm there?). Well....I think you know what to expect from this one folks but let's go through the motions shall we? Does this book put right all the wrongs of the TV serial and does the description of the Vervoids improve on their presentation on the screen? But Phil and Paul actually disagree on the merits of the Vervoids which I think they did to liven things up a bit. However, mentions of Police Squad and Charley Farley and Piggy Malone break things up, so it's not all bad!

    And in the news this week, Phil seeks Paul's opinion on Moffat staying on for another year which he missed out on during the last podcast, plus news of the Moff feeling guilty about reversing the outcome of the Time War and in Omega's Tat Corner it's tat for those cold, dark barbecue evenings!

    This weeks episode of the Who's He? Podcast starts off strangely as Paul is off out and about and it's left down to Phil to present the quickest news section ever for this podcast. And all he can talk about is whinging Doctor Who fans angry at the news that Steven Moffat has signed up for series 10 and talk of the 12th Doctor fancying Clara in series 9. But let's face it, Phil loves talking about whinging fans.

    But once the news is out of the way, it's down to business and Phil and a returning Paul discuss Master, the 3rd in the 40th Anniversary trilogy from Big Finish in 2003. So after enjoying Davros last time, will this be 2 out of 3 for enjoyment or will this join Omega in the not great category? But in a tale of lost memories, spooky houses, serial killers and Death itself, what's not to enjoy? Tune in to find out!

    Once again it's time to for Phil and Paul to return to series 2 with their ongoing retrospective and The Age Of Steel. But after a few weeks of happiness, the podcast comes down to earth with a bump as while they find this is quite enjoyable, there is a lot wrong with it, especially for Phil who wears his grumpy face throughout this episode, with talk of Cybermen that can tip-toe and what was the point of Cybus anyway?

    And Phil also keeps his grumpy face on during the news whilst talking about the return of Osgood in series 9 but gets a lot happier towards the end with the news that Doctor Who will be making an appearance in an upcoming LEGO video game.

    In this weeks episode, Phil and Paul take a look at another Target novelisation with Doctor Who And The Dinosaur Invasion by Malcom Hulke. This is a story that both Paul and Phil love with a plot that has more twists and turns than a twisty turny thing and rubbish puppet dinosaurs. So did this book change any of those plots twists and did it go to any lengths to address the dinosaur factor? What did they find in addition were drunken Scotsmen, no cars of vanity and Phil trying to convince Paul of a what he believes to be a major change to one of the characters.

    And in this news, more cast names and the episode total for Series 9, Doctor Who wins a BAFTA amd in Omega's Tat Corner it's pricey tat that both Phil and Paul would like to own.

And what a story it is, with neither of them having a bad word to say about it, this really is a Doctor Who love in! So expect the pair of them to continue with the praise for Colin Baker but be warned....both Phil and Paul were ill during this recording, so you may catch something.

    And in a bumper news section, it looks like a Doctor Who movie is on the cards (again), more from Christopher Eccleston on why he left the role and in Omega's Tat Corner, tons of Weeping Angel tat and Omega gets saucy!

How do the pair of them feel about this story after all these years and did it stand up as a reboot of the iconic Doctor Who villain? They discuss these topics whilst also comparing the Preachers to Citizen Smith which causes Paul to delve into Google.

    And in the news, the pair of them try bravely to discuss a potential spoiler without actually telling anyone what the spoiler is and in Omega's Tat Corner it's time for Pop-tastic figures and some really expensive bluetooth speakers.

    In this the 200th edition of the Who's He? Podcast, Phil and Paul have selected a suitable Target book to review in the shape of The Five Doctors. As usual they make comparisions between the book and the televised version and try to ascertain what differences there are in this story from the pen of Terrance Dicks. Also, does anything make the book better than the broadcast story? But I'll let you into a little secret....they both like this story anyway, so expect them both to gush horribly.

    And they try to play catch up with the news that haven't covered over the last few weeks which includes Peter Capaldi surprising fans at the Doctor Who Experience in Cardiff, the Hugo nominations, series 9 casting news and the future of Doctor Who on the TV.

    And in a replacement for the news, Phil and Paul take the opportunity to look back 26th March 2005 when Rose was broadcast in a small celebration of the 10th anniversary of Doctor Who returning to our screens.

    It's the Who's He? Podcasts 4th birthday and what better than a commentary to celebrate! Yes, Phil, Paul and a returning Tony plough through episodes 1 & 2 of The Gunfighters, that well regarded William Hartnell classic from 1966. Well I say well regarded as the brave trio manfully struggle with phoney American accents and try to bring you facts from the day of the original broadcast. In fact, they talk about that more than the episodes themselves, that's how bad it is!!

    And there is no news this week, as they just wanted to get cracking with the commentary for a change.

    And a big thank you to all our listeners for sticking with us for the past 4 years!!

    In this weeks show, Phil and Paul look at Omega from Big Finish. This story was the first in a trilogy to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Doctor Who in 2003 and this tale featuring the 5th Doctor saw him going up against his old nemesis, Omega. But how does this hold up today? Well, if their reaction is anything to go by, not very well! And Phil is let down by Caroline Munro which makes him sad.

    And in the news this week, the sad passing of another Who actor, the Saturn Awards nominations are announced, the Horror Channel comes to Freeview (which means Doctor Who for all) and in Omega's Tat Corner it's board game mania!

Will they change their tune before the end of the review? Listen to find out!!

    And in the news this week, Phil and Paul pay tribute to Barry Newbury who sadly passed away and in Omega's Tat Corner it's ingot and umbrella time!!

    Fresh from the Gallifrey One convention, the Who's He? Podcast come back down to earth with a bump as they continue their series 2 retrospective with The Girl In The Fireplace. What can they say about this rightly regarded modern classic of Doctor Who that hasn't already been said? Not much really but it does lead Phil and Paul onto a discussion about whether Steven Moffat being the head writer, Executive Producer and Script Editor of Doctor Who is a good thing and can lessons be learnt from the past?

    And in a slow news week, the return of Missy in series 9, Kate Lethbridge-Steward debuts on Big Finish and in Omega's Tat Corner it's tat for your fridges, laptops and bedroom walls.

    It's time for another Target book review and this time Phil and Paul have chosen Destiny Of The Daleks written by Terrance Dicks. Phil is not such a fan of this story, so his judgement is already quite clouded, while Paul tries to find the good story lurking beneath. While this book is the fastest release Target made after a story's transmission (and it shows!), the shabby nature of the TV serial shines through which only leads Phil to conclude that the one thing that could have saved the book and the TV serial is extra boobs.

    And in the news this week, how Doctor Who fared at the National Television awards, some more series 9 updates, Russell T. Davies on writing a Doctor Who movie script and in Omega's Tat Corner it's kitchen tat and some new figures that evoke memories of a BBC newsreader from days gone by.

    And in the news, there are no stats!! But there is news of Russell T. Davies of never wanting to write for Doctor Who again, some more series 9 filming news and John Barrowman announces the return of further Torchwood audio stories that gives Phil unwanted flashbacks to Miracle Day.

Sarah Jane Smith and K9 make their return to the Whoniverse in a tale of old friends and tasty chips. Other topics crop up along the way with reasons why Anthony Head should have been made the Master, Rose at her most possessive and sparkling dialogue!

Well, they make the case for Shona McCullough to not be the next companion in the Tardis and Phil is not too sure whether the subect matter is suitable for a Christmas special and Paul, still recovering in his sick bed, wonders whether this story actually needed Santa Claus at all.

    And in the news, the overnight viewing figure for Last Christmas, the future of Jenna Coleman seems to be set and the Doctor tops a BFI poll of the best sci-fi characters.

    Yes, it's the Who's He? Podcast Christmas Special and once again they look back at a Doctor Who Christmas Special of the past and this year it's the turn of The Runaway Bride.  And joining Phil this time is Martyn Havell from the Bad Wilf Podcast who fills in for an absent Paul.  So how kindly has time treated this story of giant spiders, jilted brides, robot Santa's and Tardis car chases?  Is it a case of Christmas cheer or a case of bah humbug?

    And in the news, the passing of Tom Adams, a series of Colonel Lethbridge Stewart novels are announced, news of a BBC theme park and in Omega's Tat corner it's metal tat!

    And in the news, Peter Capaldi reveals he once turned down the role of a lifetime and what he would like for the TARDIS, Bernard Cribbins receives a J.M. Barrie award and in Omega's Tat Corner, some festive tat and some rip off tat that you would need to take a payday loan out for.

    In this weeks episode of the Who's He? Podcast, Phil and Paul take a look back over series 8 of Doctor Who (not series 7 as Phil stated last week!) and deliver their opinion of the series as a whole. And for once they try and have some semblance of structure to the critique but this soon goes out of the window while talking about hot topics such as plot threads that went nowhere, the real plot arc of this series and the effect Peter Capaldi has had on the show. But more importantly they vote for their favourite and least favourite episodes, plus which directors and writers they would like to see return for series 9!

    And in the news this week, the final round of the dreaded stats, the extension of the TARDIS set tours into December and a little report on their visit to Doctor Who: Anatomy of a Hit hosted by the Royal Television Society.

    It's the finale of series 8 with Death In Heaven by Steven Moffat. And did this finale deliver the goods and did Moffat keep his fairly good track record and deliver another quality series finish? Well, Phil and Paul really can't make their minds up in what proves to be a very argumentative episode. Yes, Phil and Paul seem quite content to contradict one another all through this and as usual Phil is angrier than most. In fact he gets so wound up, he misses plot points that Paul has to remind him of and he even stops remembering what series he has been watching!

    And in the news, more stats to bore you with, award news, the BBC responds to complaints over Dark Water which naturally gets Phil riled up and in Omega's Tat Corner, more tat from Titan and the New Zealand Mint.

    Dark Water, the penultimate episode of this series of Doctor Who. And this story has yet again caused fandom to to start infighting with perceived obvious plot developments and gender swapping being at the heart of all the complaints. But what of Phil and Paul? Are they also divided on their opinion? Do they agree with the complaints being levelled at this story? Listen to find out!

    And in the news, the weekly drudgery of stats, the Doctor Who Experience has a problem which leads to Phil and Paul starting rumours, Welsh BAFTA's and in Omega's Tat Corner, a 5th Doctor jumper to keep you warm on those cold winter nights! Or you could just put the heating on.
