    January 5, 2022 saw Rob and Dave catch up, in person, in Sydney. Being based in different Australian cities - and the pandemic - it's actually been almost four years since this last happened; January 27, 2018 to be precise.

    That last meeting resulted in a lo-fi, hotel room recording which got called, 'Rob and Dave Unplugged' where the guys discussed fandom in Australia, and their roles in it (and out of it), during the 80s, 90s, 00s, and beyond.

    For this new meeting, the lo-fi, hotel room recording vibe is back. Strap in for, 'Rob and Dave Unplugged 2' where, this time around, the guys take 19 questions and a comment, from their social media followers, and answer them all.

    The questions take the chat over the place, from hypothetical Doctor Who scenarios, to our favourite Australian bands, to questions about the podcast itself. A veritable cornucopia if you have an hour, or so, to spend with the guys.

    First up this month, if you're looking for chat about the news of the moment; RTD returning as Doctor Who showrunner in 2023, we have made a standalone episode called 'Resurrection of the RTD'. Find it on our podcast feed, or here on the website.

    The main theme of this month's episode is the Virgin New Adventure that ended the 7th Doctor in print, Lungbarrow.

    All is not well on Gallifrey. Chris Cwej is having someone else's nightmares. Ace is talking to herself. So is K9. Leela has stumbled on a murderous family conspiracy. And the beleaguered Lady President, Romanadvoratrelundar, foresees one of the most tumultuous events in her planet's history.

    At the root of all is an ancient and terrible place, the House of Lungbarrow in the southern mountains of Gallifrey. Something momentous is happening there. But the House has inexplicably gone missing.

    673 years ago the Doctor left his family in that forgotten House. Abandoned, disgraced and resentful, they have waited. And now he's home at last.

    In this, the Seventh Doctor's final New Adventure, he faces a threat that could uncover the greatest secret of them all.

    Before then, of course, there’s some news from the past month in Doctor Who, and some mini-topics to discuss. You know the drill for our monthly episode by now, dear listener.

    Rob and Dave discuss that Russell T Davies will make a return to Doctor Who in time to celebrate the 60th Anniversary of Doctor Who in 2023, and at least one series beyond that.

    This is an unplanned (unsurprisingly!) episode we've knocked out ahead of tomorrow's flagship episode of the show, where we tackle the Virgin New Adventure novel, Lungbarrow.

    "I’m beyond excited to be back on my favourite show. But we’re time-travelling too fast, there’s a whole series of Jodie Whittaker’s brilliant Doctor for me to enjoy, with my friend and hero Chris Chibnall at the helm - I’m still a viewer for now." - Russell T Davies

    "It’s monumentally exciting and fitting that Doctor Who’s 60th anniversary will see one of Britain’s screenwriting diamonds return home. Russell built the baton that is about to be handed back to him. Doctor Who, the BBC, the screen industry in Wales - and let’s be honest everyone in the whole world - have so many reasons to be Very Excited Indeed about what lies ahead." - Chris Chibnall

    "As the 13th Doctor prepares to embark on new and extraordinary adventures, the winds of change are blowing… bringing with them news to delight Doctor Who fans across the globe. We are thrilled that Russell is returning to Doctor Who to build on the huge achievements of Chris and Jodie. Thank you to the two of them and the team in Cardiff for all they continue to do for the show and hello Russell, it’s wonderful to have you back." - Piers Wenger

    "We are delighted to be joining Russell T Davies on a looped ontological paradox. Where Russell goes, we are proud to follow – and that with BBC Studios, Bad Wolf will be producing the all-new series of Doctor Who.  It is a privilege to be asked to support him in Doctor Who’s future." - Bad Wolf

    As two guys who were out there in fandom - the first time - in the 1980s and 1990s, we both have really fond memories of buying Doctor Who Magazine and reading the comic strip in it.

    Then, quite independently of one another (we didn't know each other!), in different Australian cities, we stopped reading the comic, long before we stopped with the magazine itself.

    In this episode we discuss when we came to the comic strip in the magazine, what stories we liked (and didn't like!), and also when we started to lose interest with the strip.

    Before then, of course, there’s some news from the past month in Doctor Who, and some mini-topics to discuss. You know the drill for our monthly episode by now, dear listener.

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

    These are short podcasts 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. Vitally, the guest doesn’t know anything about the content of the letters before we record.

    In this episode, Rob talks to Richard Smith from the Something Who podcast about the letters in DWM from August of 1987!

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

  • Cool Spaceships in Doctor Who

    Direct Podcast Download

    What started as an off-hand comment in an episode last season has grown into its own topic on today's show - Cool Spaceships in Doctor Who! Which are the ships we think are cool between 1963 and 2021... and why?

    Before then, we do our usual news and short topics which, this month, includes some commentary on both the Noel Clarke and John Barrowman situations. Topics we aren't happy to be talking about but which, as we say in the episode, would be conspicuous by their absence if we ignored them. We also look at the BBCs stance on fan-created content.

    Later in the episode it's over to our listeners for three great picks from our mailbag. And that's May!

    Hope you enjoy the episode. Contact us anytime, hello@theDWshow.net

    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.

    It's all about the chat!

    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.

    Welcome to the fourth episode of the podcast we’re dropping on the feed every month in between our regular monthly shows.

    Normally Rob sits down with his co-host Dave, or a guest, to talk about letters from classic issues of Doctor Who Magazine.

    In today's podcast, however, Dave is presenting letters to Rob from a classic issue of Sonic Screwdriver - the fanzine of the Victorian Doctor Who Fan Club.
