    Over a year after his previous visit to Something Who, here's another fantastic chat with the wonderful documentary film maker Chris Chapman about his contributions to the Doctor Who: The Collection Blu-ray sets.

    I wanted to focus on how Chris uses his films to tell stories and to discuss the planning and editing processes as much as the actual filming, though naturally some of those stories come through too. We focus in this episode on Chris's new films for the Season 14 and Season 8 sets.

    I think you'll be blown away by Chris's natural enthusiasm for his work, as well as his passion for the subjects of his films.

    Don't worry that this is episode 43 and the last one was 41. It's all gone a little bit wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey on us, but 42 will be along soon and it'll be worth waiting for.

    Chris's work is all over the Doctor Who DVD and Blu-Ray ranges, and while the limited editions of the Blu-Rays can be hard to get hold of, they are slowly being re-issued and well worth the price of admission.

    And if you can't get enough of Chris's work, you can also head over to https://www.bigfinish.com/, where he has written a number of audio plays.

    Gav surprises us all with his return to the Something Who bunker, perhaps drawn by the siren call of wine and science. Along with Paul, Giles and Richard he discusses two Doctor Who stories with a connection to 1969: Third Doctor story The Ambassadors of Death, which was written in that year, and Eleventh Doctor outing The Impossible Astronaut / Day of the Moon, which is set in 1969, both with strong links to the space programmes of that era.

    We try to stay on topic, but inevitably we stray into programmes of the same era and we give Amy's Crack a particularly thorough examination. Oddly, despite the fact that everybody had a go writing Ambassadors, it's Moffat's episodes that seem to have the most loose threads.

    Steven Schapansky is back  for a second stint on Something Who, and we've got a new conceit for the occasion. Steven and Richard both choose a pair of Dream Teams from behind the camera, one for the original series and one from the new. And then, armed with our Dream Teams, we think about stories that we'd like to remake using their talents.

    Our original series dream team will consist of a Producer / Script Editor / Director / Writer / Designer and Incidental Music Composer, while our new series dream team will be a Showrunner / Exec / Producer / Writer / Director / Designer and Composer.

    And it wouldn't  be Something Who if  we didn't use that concept as a framework for other discussions.

    I know what you're saying. What happened to Episode 30? Rest easy, Something Who fans, it's coming. Rather like Seasons 10, 15, 17 and 19 among others, our episodes are coming out in a different order from how we recorded them. And here's a treat for you.

    Earlier in the year, Jeremy Bentham joined us on Something Who to chat about his long association with fandom, including his association with the Doctor Who Appreciation Society and his work on Doctor Who Magazine (or Weekly and Monthly as it was known then).

    Jeremy returns to talk with me about 4 figures who made the programme that he met in the early years of fandom, plus another who he wishes he had met. Along with his personal memories, we talk about the impact that Patrick Troughton, Douglas Camfield, Ian Scoones, Dennis Spooner and David Whitaker had on Doctor Who and its fandom.

    Autumn has arrived, the nights are drawing in and naturally our thoughts return once more to Doctor Who. At the same time, it's the end of the cricket season and the start of football and this time we're looking at Doctor Who's two great sporting encounters, starting with 5th Doctor's cricketing exploits in Black Orchid, followed by the 11th Doctor's footballing feats in The Lodger. And who better to help us with that than Huw Turbervill. Huw is a sports journalist and the Managing Editor of The Cricketer Magazine, as well as an occasional visitor to Gallifrey Base's Missing Episodes Megathread, where we met him. And so we've turned our podcast for one episode only into Something Huw, including a pastiche on Black Orchid, analyses of all of the Doctor's encounters with both games and Huw's encounters with some of our heroes in his journalistic career.

    After Stevie makes his first non-squeaking appearance on Something Who (or should that be Something Degu?), Paul, Giles and Richard are back for our Giant Animals special. OK, it's a fair cop guv'nor, really it's our Christopher Benjamin appreciation episode. Up first it's Fourth Doctor adventure The Talons of Weng-Chiang, followed by Tenth Doctor outing The Unicorn and the Wasp. We find more to say about the former than the latter, but we seem to have enjoyed both. And while Paul appears to say nothing remotely controversial about either story, Richard dives straight into the fray with his size 12s.

    So put on your best bib and tucker, order up a Hansom cab, or a Rolls, and prepare to hob nob with the top nobs at The Palace Theatre and a country manor house.

    So put on your Kang fright wig, your rezzie's shawl or your caretaker's peaked cap and order in a Kronkburger with cheese, as we examine the route to the top floor.

First we look at Sixth Doctor opener The Twin Dilemma and then we examine the Twelfth Doctor's initial story Deep Breath. Along the way we have a surprisingly wide-ranging chat about colonialism, bad science, Crimewatch, TV writers who go a bit mad when given the chance to do Sci-Fi, sexism and historical appropriation.

Steven, co-host of Radio Free Skaro, is a fellow Missing Episodes obsessive and the conversation covers the whole gamut from how we discovered that some Doctor Who episodes were missing, the recovery of stories in the 80s and 90s, the discovery of telesnaps and off air recordings, leading to audio releases, fan reconstructions and animations, the hunt for the remaining films and, inevitably, the Omnirumour.

    Toby discusses the background to his involvement in the range, and we talk about Living With Levene, Looking for Peter, Hadoke vs HAVOC, Treasures Lost and Found, A Weekend With Waterhouse, The Doctor Who Cookbook Revisited and Looking For Lennie. Toby also mentions a documentary from the upcoming Season 14 set, Whose Doctor Who Revisited. We also get to hear about the genesis of Moths Ate My Doctor Who Scarf and many other tales. He's warm and funny and it's a tonic for these troubled times.

We talk about A Weekend with Waterhouse, Looking for Lennie, The Doctor Who Cookbook Revisited, Keeping Up With The Joneses, 3 versions of The Writers' Room and Showman. Chris also trails a couple of documentaries from the upcoming Season 14 set, Whose Doctor Who Revisited and Our Sarah Jane, plus a feature to accompany the Fury From The Deep animation.

    Hoping to ease the disappointment surrounding the postponement of this weekend's Terrance Dicks Celebration event, I've dusted off this recording I made of a panel held at the London Comic Con last October celebrating Terrance's life and work. I hope it goes some way towards filling the gap.

    The panel was hosted by Matthew Sweet, with contributions from Emma Reeves, Paul Cornell, Mike Tucker and Katy Manning. 

    The audio quality is frankly poor, but I've done the best I can to reduce the interference and with a bit of persistence and concentration it's entirely possible to follow the conversation.

    This podcast is available entirely for free and I make nothing from it, but in the spirit of the Celebration event, I'm pledging to donate 10p for every download we get (up to a maximum of 500) to Terrance's chosen charity of Save the Children.

    I think it's a great conversation and tribute to Terrance and I hope you enjoy it.
