    Welcome to the eighth episode of the podcast we’re dropping on the feed every month in addition to The List Makers and our flagship Doctor Who Show episodes.

    These are short (20 minute-ish) shows where Rob sits down with a guest and reads letters – the primary sources of the title – about Doctor Who from the 80s and 90s, for the purpose of kick-starting a conversation.

    In this episode, Rob talks to his Doctor Who Show co-host, Dave! 

    This is Doctor Who without a safety net. The conversations could go anywhere the guest wants them to go.

    On July 29, 2018, Rob and Dave released the popular, 'Classic Doctors in Nu Who Episodes' episode. Quite why they didn't follow this up with a sequel covering the reverse scenario question eludes them to this day.

    Enter listener Owen Prince (@kellogs24 on Twitter if you want to say hello), who recently suggested, ever so nicely, that making the sequel - the podcast you'll hear today - would be a really top idea.

    As you know, we love hearing from our listeners, and we took the idea to heart.

    Tune in to hear which classic stories we'd insert Eccleston, Tennant, Smith, Capaldi, and Whittaker into. Some choices might seem obvious, but some will definitely catch you by surprise. They're off the wall!

    Before we get to that, of course, there's our usual news and short topics. The feature content starts around the 25 minute mark if you're looking this up at a future date and want to skip the preamble.

    Following the popularity of our PRIMARY SOURCES episodes since they started dropping late in 2020 - particularly their 20 minute run-time - the Doctor Who Show is unveiling a new monthly show with a similar short format.

    Doctor Who fans love lists. Are we right?

    The List Makers will see the guys take a topic each month that involves creating a Top 5 list. They will then run through their lists, with minimal interruption to each other, then have an open discussion of both lists.

    In early March Rob and Dave ran a Twitter poll to tell them what season of Doctor Who they should talk about in the episode at the end of that month; the very episode you are about to listen to now.

    The choices were Season Six (1968/69); Season 11 (1973/74); Season 14 (1976/77); and the David Tennant era specials (2009/10).

    140 votes were cast, with Season 6 winning on 37.9% of the vote.

    After a brief discussion of the season, including thoughts on the TARDIS team and the general chaos behind the scenes, the guys then give their thoughts on each individual story, before a summary at the end, tackling whether the season works overall. What are your thoughts on it?

    If you heard our November 2020 episode, you may recall a letter from listener 'JT' that expressed interest in us doing a 'Stories for Doctor Who Virgins' episode, whereby we'd recommend a story from each Doctor's era - classic and modern - that you could show someone who has never seen Doctor Who before and, hopefully, get a good reaction!

    We love taking on listener suggestions so here, a mere three months later, we've made JT's request a reality. What will our picks be, across the years? Some might seem obvious. Some might surprise. But we explain all of them and, hopefully, if you're in the position to show Doctor Who to a newbie, you might even consider some of them.

    Before then, of course, it's time for some news and short topics from the worlds of Doctor Who and beyond.

    For some Doctor Who fans, paying a large fee to go to a convention, to only then stand in queues to pay even more money for autographs and/or photographs is the norm, and they're more than happy to do it.

    But things never used to be this way. While Producer Rob holidays in the South of France, join regular host Dave, irregular co-host Richard (The Goodies Pirate Podcast, Space Fall: A Blakes 7 Podcast), and Rob & Mark from the 42 to Doomsday podcast as they talk conventions from the 1980s up until today, including the 50th Anniversary celebration in the UK.

    With an obvious emphasis on the Australian experience, the guys will not only take you through what conventions used to be like, but also share some stories from behind-the-scenes of actually running conventions.

    Rob and Dave found themselves with a bit of a problem during January.

    Listener feedback was pouring in, and two large-ish news stories had broken, yet the regular episode scheduled for the end of January was recorded at the tail-end of 2020, in-person, with the 42 to Doomsday podcast lads. As such, it didn't include any of the new material.

    Should they wait until the episode at the end of February to talk through it all? The news would be a bit old by then, and there might be even more letters to add to the pile. It didn't seem very ideal.

    So here, for one week only, the guys tackle the two biggest pieces of Doctor Who news at present, as well as presenting a range of listener emails; most commenting on the recent Revolution of the Daleks.

    How many times have you watched an episode of Doctor Who, then gone online and wondered if the rest of the world watched the same episode?

    It might be a story you really loved and it feels like everyone else is panning it. Conversely it might be a story you thought was the worst thing you've ever seen in your life yet, when you go online afterwards, people are talking about it like it's the next Genesis of the Daleks.

    It's weird, right? Frustrating? Yeah, we hear you. On tonight's episode, we have TONS of listener feedback on the topic, not only because it gives us a wide and varied group of examples but because we wanted you to be involved in our final episode of 2020 as a thank you to all your support this year. We do throw in some of our own thoughts too, of course!

    Before then we talk about the past month in Doctor Who news – this time including the imminent arrival of Revolution of the Daleks and some last minute filming that's been added to it – in addition to some short topics.

    Back in April of this year we reviewed Season 16 after a listener poll selected it from the list of four options we provided. A close runner-up to that season was Season 25 and, given its clear popularity with our listeners in the poll, plus the fact it debuted in October of 1988, we thought why not dive in and review it here in October 2020?

    After a discussion of the season overall, including thoughts on where the show was at in general, the Australian fan experience for us, and also script editor Andrew Cartmel's first year in the role where he had full control over every story in the season, we then give our thoughts on each individual episode, before a summary at the end.

    Rob and Dave discuss season one of Star Trek: Picard.

    Star Trek: Picard is an American web television series featuring the character Jean-Luc Picard, created for CBS All Access by Akiva Goldsman, Michael Chabon, Kirsten Beyer, and Alex Kurtzman. It is the eighth series in the Star Trek franchise, and was launched in 2020 as part of Kurtzman's expansion of the franchise. 

    Picard begins 20 years after Star Trek: Nemesis (2002) and sees a retired Picard deeply affected by the death of Data in that film as well as the destruction of the planet Romulus in the film Star Trek (2009).

    Star Trek: Picard premiered on January 23, 2020, and its first season ran for 10 episodes until March 26. Second and third seasons were ordered before the first season debuted. The series was met with positive reviews from critics, who highlighted Stewart's performance and the focus on character over action but criticised the slow pace of the series.

    Direct Podcast Download

    Regular listeners will know that aside from our 'hot take' episodes whenever new Doctor Who emerges, our other episodes are hardly ever based on reviewing a single story. In that way, we're probably different to many, or even most, Doctor Who podcasts out there which make single story reviews their main focus.

     

    We 'broke' this rule in September 2019 by randomly selecting The Keeper of Traken for a deep dive and we loved the experience so much, we decided to do it again sometime in the following year.

     

    Conscious that we did a Classic Who episode last time, a few weeks back we ran a Twitter poll asking listeners what they'd like to hear us do a standalone podcast on: Amy's Choice, The Long Game, The Girl Who Waited, or The Idiot's Lantern.

     

    136 votes were cast, with 35.3% asking for The Girl Who Waited.

     

    So... here we are! But some things never change and before we get to the episode itself we also rattle through some listener reviews, Doctor Who news, and short topics.

     

    And be sure to let us know what you thought of our opinion on the story, so we can read you out, next time.

    How did these companions assist in the transition? Were they better with their intended/orginal Doctor, or the one who came next?

    Terence Joseph Nation (8 August 1930 – 9 March 1997) was a Welsh television writer and novelist who listeners to our podcast will know as the creator of the Daleks.

    As well as his work on Doctor Who for the First, Third and Fourth Doctors, Nation also created cult TV classics Survivors and Blake's 7, in addition to writing for The Avengers, The Baron, The Champions, Department S, The Persuaders! and The Saint.

    Despite this astounding pedigree versus many of his peers, it's fair to say that Nation isn't widely regarded as one of the great classic Doctor Who writers.

    Rob and Dave take a deep dive into Nation's career and fan perceptions of him to both re-evaluate the man and also pay tribute to his time on Doctor Who.

  • The Podcast of Decision III (The DW Show Presents...)

    13 April 2020 (3:00am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 29 minutes and 12 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Time for another edition of the Podcast of Decision, this time featuring Dave, along with sometime Doctor Who Show contributor and co-host; Richard, and the guys from the 42 to Doomsday podcast; Rob and Mark.

    If you’re unfamiliar with The Podcast of Decision, in November 2018, Rob and Dave sat down in a hotel room with Todd and Nathan from Flight Through Entirety (and Jodie into Terror), to record a breezy wander through all of Doctor Who via some games Dave devised. Dave called this recording, The Podcast of Decision.

    In August 2019 we ran a second installment - coincidentally featuring today's cast - and it received such good feedback, a third edition was always going to happen at some stage. So here it finally is!

    We hope you're all safe, staying at home and washing your hands and perhaps content like this can be of some comfort to ward off the dreaded 'cabin fever' during these extraordinary times.

    The Doctor Who Show has made occasional forays into Star Wars content, in some way paying tribute to the podcast’s original incarnation, Who Wars; the world's first and to our understanding still the only Star Wars and Doctor Who mash-up podcast to have ever existed.

    Rogue One, The Last Jedi and Solo... we've done 'em all upon release.

    In this episode, Rob and Dave are joined by Richard to talk about the ninth film in the Star Wars saga and the alleged end of the Skywalker saga, The Rise of Skywalker.

    What did these three Doctor Who fans make of it? Join them for this quick hour-long podcast where they reveal their thoughts to each other, live, without having discussed it before the record button was pressed.

    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (also known as Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker) is a 2019 American epic space-opera film produced, co-written, and directed by J. J. Abrams. It is the third installment of the Star Wars sequel trilogy, following The Force Awakens (2015) and The Last Jedi (2017), and the final episode of the nine-part "Skywalker saga".

    It was produced by Lucasfilm and Abrams's production company Bad Robot Productions, and was distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. The film's ensemble cast includes Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Anthony Daniels, Naomi Ackie, Domhnall Gleeson, Richard E. Grant, Lupita Nyong'o, Keri Russell, Joonas Suotamo, Kelly Marie Tran, Ian McDiarmid, and Billy Dee Williams.

    After the new trilogy was announced following Disney's acquisition of Lucasfilm in 2012, it was originally reported that The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson would write the script for Episode IX. In August 2015, Colin Trevorrow was hired to direct the film while constant-collaborator Derek Connolly would co-write a new script (both would eventually receive story credit with Abrams and Chris Terrio). In September 2017, Trevorrow left the project following creative differences with producer Kathleen Kennedy, and a few days later, it was announced that Abrams had been hired to return. Principal photography began in August 2018 at Pinewood Studios in England, and wrapped in February 2019; post-production was completed on November 24, 2019.

    The Rise of Skywalker had its world premiere in Los Angeles on December 16, 2019, and was theatrically released in the United States on December 20, 2019. The film received mixed reviews from critics, with some praising its celebration of the entire saga and others considering it unimaginative and not bold enough.

    As November 23, 2019 approached, the BBC started dropping a surprising amount of information about the forthcoming Series 12 of Doctor Who after a relative dearth of information for the entire year.

    Then, on Doctor Who's 56th birthday, a trailer for the new series dropped. Unfortunately, we recorded this episode a few days before that (!) fully acknowledging that we'd miss the trailer that we knew was coming, however, Rob has subsequently blogged about it.

    After discussion of what we know about Series 12 during our news segment, this episode then moves onto some short topics including what we're watching at present, then our main topic for the month (as revealed in our previous episode), Our Top 5 Nu-Who Moments.

    How did we do? Did you like our picks?

    And as always, we hope you like the episode...!

    10 episodes into our fourth series and 50 years after he took on the role (remember, Season 7 filming was well underway by late 1969 for a January 1970 debut), we discuss the Jon Pertwee era of Doctor Who.

    We discuss each season, along with breakout chats on the Pertwee companions, UNIT, the Third Doctor in other media, such as books and audios, and more.

    Before then, as usual, we discuss the past month in Doctor Who which, this time around, includes Jodie Whittaker singing some Coldplay, an amateur version of Mission to the Unknown, and Doctorates all 'round for the cast and crew of The Woman Who Fell to Earth. Were they deserved?

  • Joker

    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 37 minutes and 26 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Dave and Richard have been to see Joker. What did they think of it? Tune in!

    Joker is a 2019 American psychological thriller film directed by Todd Phillips, who co-wrote the screenplay with Scott Silver. The film, based on DC Comics characters, stars Joaquin Phoenix as the Joker. An origin story set in 1981, the film follows Arthur Fleck, a failed stand-up comedian who turns to a life of crime and chaos in Gotham City. Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz, Frances Conroy, Brett Cullen, Glenn Fleshler, Bill Camp, Shea Whigham, and Marc Maron appear in supporting roles. Joker was produced by Warner Bros. Pictures, DC Films, and Village Roadshow Pictures, and distributed by Warner Bros.

    Joker premiered at the 76th Venice International Film Festival on August 31, 2019, where it won the Golden Lion, and was released in the United States on October 4, 2019. The film polarised critics; while Phoenix's performance was praised, the dark tone, portrayal of mental illness, and handling of violence divided responses. Joker also generated concerns of inspiring real-world violence; the movie theatre where the 2012 Aurora, Colorado mass shooting occurred during a screening of The Dark Knight Rises refused to show it.



  • The Keeper of Traken

    Direct Podcast Download

    As regular listeners know, Rob and Dave differentiate the Doctor Who Show from most other Who podcasts by seldom talking about a single Doctor Who story as the main segment of their monthly shows. Their topics are usually broader, taking in multiple stories as they work their way through a topic.

    This month, however, the guys have decided to mix things up and do something a little different by taking a deep dive on the penultimate (and underrated?) Tom Baker story, The Keeper of Traken, as the main focus of the episode.

    Before they get there, however, they follow their usual format of cherry picking some of the more interesting Doctor Who news stories for the previous month, and also rattle through a few quick 'mini topics' of their own.
