    On the sixty-eighth edition of Reality Bomb, we have a special episode featuring two documentaries in honour of Graeme being a fan of Doctor Who for 35 years last month. First we re-present our documentary from episode 012 where Graeme celebrates his 30th year of being a fan and talks to several people about the ways Doctor Who fandom changed in the '80s, '90s and 2000s. We follow that up with a brand-new documentary where Graeme and some friends (and a special guest) discuss the developments in Doctor Who fandom over the past five years.

    This is a special edition of Reality Bomb remembering a special person: Paul Condon, who died late last week. Paul was brilliant, funny, thoughtful mischievous and kind. He was a much-loved Doctor Who fan and we're paying tribute to him by presenting two interviews he did: the first (from episode 048) was recorded the day after Jodie Whittaker was cast as Paul explained who Jodie Whittaker was and what to watch of her work. The second is a Gallery of the Underrated from episode 047 as Paul explains why he thinks Delta and the Bannermen should get more love -- and offers a mind-blowing interpretation of what actually happened in that story.

    Paul Condon was the best of Doctor Who fandom. And he will be missed.
