No news this week.
The Unofficial Doctor Who Annual 1987 is out now to order, emp.co.uk offer up a new TARDIS bathrobe and womens hoodie plus Candy Jar Books are releasing the DW Art of Chris Achilléos early next year.
Review story this week is: Turn Left
Fandom usually has good things to say about this so we dive into this belter of a Doctor-lite story from Series 4 where Catherine Tate runs the show before the epic finale. Are we into this one like everyone else or do we wish we’d have turned right?
Thank you all for listening this week. Our review story next week will be the SJA story – The Eternity Trap. Until then have a great week and remember – Allons-y!
We run through the press announcement for Series 12 that landed on Wednesday 13th and a great fan project for a Terrance Dicks book that’s due out next year.
The upcoming vinyl LP The Web Planet looks gorgeous.
Review story this week is: Torchwood – Captain Jack Harkness
We’ve been up and down with Series 1 so far and this one is often viewed as a decent watch. Does this bring Captain Jack’s character up to where we know it can be or are we felt feeling trapped in the rift?
Thank you all for listening this week. Our review story next week will be the Series 4 story – Turn Left. Until then have a great week and remember – Allons-y!
No news this week guys.
Fury from the Deep is getting the animated treatment and is due out next year, we’re getting a Master-centric unofficial annual, Sophie Aldred’s first DW novel is out next year too and the next exclusive vinyl LP is The Web of Fear.
Review story this week is: The Ambassadors of Death
Super cool and suave, the Third Doctor is on a mission to stop galactic war while dealing with conspirators and generally bad people. Does this James Bond-style story serve up the goods or does the 7-part run time feel like too much of a slog?
Thank you all for listening this week. Our review story next week will be the Torchwood story – Captain Jack Harkness. Until then have a great week and remember – Allons-y!
Hey, Who fans!
Gamers will be happy to know another Doctor Who VR game is on the way – The Edge of Time is out on the usual VR platforms on the 12th November.
A double bill of the little green alien Sil is on the the way in Nov: SIL And the Devil Seeds of Arodor is out on the 4th Nov and The Doctors: More Monsters! is also out on the 4th. There’s a couple of Who Xmas jumpers up for pre-order too; one from EMP and the other from FP.com.
Review story this week is SJA: The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith
Listeners will know we’ve loved reviewing the SJA so far and this is one story we’ve been looking forward to. Does the inclusion of the 10th Doctor bring this show up to an even higher standard or is it just hype?
Thank you all for listening this week. Our review story next week will be the 3rd Doctor story – The Ambassadors of Death. Until then have a super week and remember – Allons-y!
Hey, Who fans!
We say Happy Birthday to Doctor Who Magazine who is still going strong after 40 years and sadly we say goodbye to Stephen Moore (coincidentally Stephen played “Eldane” in our review story this week) who passed recently.
Another unofficial Doctor Who Annual is on its way. After the success of the 1972 Annual, this fan project from Terraqueous Distributors is now working on the 1987 Sixth Doctor release – details here. A new Doctor Who retailer is about to launch here in the UK! Yes, new Who-specific company “The Time Meddlers” launches on November 5th with their website and site located in central London’s Convent Garden Jubilee Market. Sign up here for an exclusive pre-launch discount of 25%. Exciting times for Who merch hunters.
Review story this week is The Hungry Earth and Cold Blood
We haven’t spent any time with the Eleventh Doctor nor Series 5 in a while so does this story bring back good memories or are we pulled under the ground in nostalgic disappointment?
Thank you all for listening this week. Our review story next week will be SJA: The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith. Until then have a great week and remember – Allons-y!
Hey, Who fans!
Still very quiet for news, nothing of note to report on.
Lovarzi’s new 13th Doctor scarf will be landing on their site from 11th October and if you sign up to their DW Fan Club you’ll get 15% off too. We also mention the two Doctor Who NYCC Exclusives from Titan.
Review story this week is Torchwood: Combat
Written by Noel Clarke, this story throws Owen into an undercover role which reveals a violent underworld involving Weevles and Gwen tumbles deeper down the path of regret. All deep dark stuff but does it serve up that TW grit?
Thank you all so much for listening this week. Our review story next week will be the 11th Doctor two-parter: The Hungry Earth and Cold Blood. Until then have a great week and remember – Allons-y!
Hey, Who fans!
It is sooo good to be back and chatting Doctor Who. Let’s get into it…
Chris Eccleston seems to be embracing fandom recently and another example of that is the announcement that he’ll be attending the Gallifrey One convention next February. Nice one Chris.
Fan of Martha Jones? If so then you’ll be pleased to know Freema Agyeman is returning to the world of Doctor Who to star alongside Eve Myles in Big Finish’s “Torchwood: Dissected” which is out in February 2020 and if you’re in need of a new laptop bag, Lovarzi has you covered with their new TARDIS themed offering.
Review story this week: Arc of Infinity
Back to Gallifrey, the Time Lord High Council, traitors, Omega, posh British accents and Peter Davison doubling as the bad guy. How do we feel about this often snubbed story?
Thank you all so much for coming back and listening. Our review story next week will be Torchwood: Combat. Until then have a great week and remember – Allons-y!
Hey, Who fans!
It’s a Garry-solo show this week as Adam is not about.
Extremely sad news as we say goodbye to the amazing Terrance Dicks.
The latest classic Who blu ray box set is Season 26, yay! A new Rose adventure from Big Finish and ol’ Sixie will be back with Peri next year for more Big Finish.
Q&A with Garry
As Adam is not with us at the moment I don’t want to watch and review stories without him so seeing as we haven’t done a Q&A for a while, now seems like a good time.
Not sure on the format for next week so stay tuned. Until then have a great week and remember – Allons-y!
Hey Who fans. We’re back! In this week’s show…
No decent news of any substance but we do chat about that so-called announcement that turned out to be a debunking of a rumour. Gotta love Who fandom at times, lol.
An awesome new collection of short stories is out in October in the style of the old Target books titled “The Target Storybook” which has a couple of interesting authors and the next documentary DVD from Reeltime Pictures is out this November called “More Monsters”.
“SJA – The Mad Woman in the Attic” Review
Poor old Rani, it looked like fate had dealt her a rotten hand and she was doomed to spend her days in the darkness in Bannerman Road but after some great storytelling, all’s not what it seems and the future is not set. It’s so great to be back on the SJA reviews so did this one continue our good vibes with the Attic crew?
On the next show, our review will be the 5th Doctor story – Arc of Infinity. Until then have a great couple of weeks and remember – Allons-y!
Hey Who fans. In this week’s show…
It’s that time of year again when San Diego Comic Con is upon us and lovers of artwork will want to check out portraits of all 14 Doctors by artist Jeremy Enecio which will be on display all weekend.
A bunch of SDCC exclusives are available, a new blu ray set “The Complete David Tennant” is releasing in the US in September and Donna Noble is returning to Big Finish next year.
“Human Nature and The Family of Blood” Review
An often loved two-parter and a story we’ve spoken about fondly but after a recent re-watch are we still into this one, listeners of ours?
Next week our review will be the SJA story – The Mad Woman in the Attic. Until then have a super week and remember – Allons-y!
