Big Blue Box Podcast – Episode 14

Hey Who fans and welcome. Along with the news round up I give you my review of The Caretaker and if it floated my Tardis, I mean, boat.

The News

Sadly, actress Maggie Stables has passed away. Having appeared in twenty Big Finish audio plays, most notably as companion Evelyn to the Sixth Doctor, it’s a big shame for fans of hers. I hadn’t heard her work until I found out about her passing but after listening to some samples she really did give great performances.

Now the BBC have vacated their main head office (which I think, for the record, is a huge mistake and confusing decision) there’s lots of equipment and TV stuff lying around which is going to be auctioned off. Peter Pattinson Auctioneers will hold various online auctions from Tues 4th November to Friday 7th November. One of the items is a huge 3.5m wide by 2.5m high canvas backdrop of Matt Smith as the 11th Doctor used in promotions. If you’ve got the room for it, it’s a great piece to own. Details for the auction can be found here (scroll down to BBC Memorabilia).

Titan Comics will be showing off the new 12th Doctor comic run at New York Comic Con on the 10th and 11th of October. You’ll also be able to pick up NYCC exclusive covers for the already launched 10th and 11th Doctor comics too. Wow, lots of variants for this one!

“The Caretaker” Review

Another one of those Who episodes that’s full of fun and humour that’s sure to please the kids this time. The Caretaker wasn’t the strongest episode this series but certainly wasn’t terrible. Afterwards we’re still left asking “who is Missy and what is the Neversphere?”

What are your thoughts on this one? Let me know on the site, Twitter or Facebook.

Thanks for stepping into the Tardis for episode 14 and look forward to chatting all things Who next time. Until then – Allons-y!
