Big Blue Box Podcast – Episode 27

Welcome Who fans to episode 27. Some good news pieces to go through before we get into our review of The Doctor’s Daughter. Hath we go…

The News

5th Doctor Peter Davison was interviewed by ABC News recently and was asked about the possibility of there being a female Doctor. His reply was: “I have trouble with the idea of a female Doctor, only because I reckon if you’re born on Gallifrey a man, you’re probably a male Time Lord.” An interesting statement from Davison and one that we share here on the show, at least for now.

Our lovable tin dog companion K-9 is the subject of a new campaign for a new book. The Essential Book of K-9 is a new project from K-9 series co-creator Paul Tams. He feels there should be a more complete book about K-9 and his adventures not only with the Doctor but the likes of Sarah Jane etc. You can contribute over at IndieGoGo to make sure this book gets published, so go and do that now!

With the launch of the new Lethbridge-Stewart novels around the corner, The Who Shop in London is holding a special launch day event where you’ll be able to get the book signed by Andy Frankham-Allen as well as mingle with Who names such as Jemma Redgrave and Terrance Dicks. The event will happen on Saturday 28th February and you can find address details to the brilliant Who Shop here.

Chris Eccleston has been doing the media rounds the last couple of weeks to promote new Sky Atlantic show Fortitude and as usual there’s not much love for Doctor Who. Never one to give the show much love since his departure there’s even rumour he hung up on a reporter when they asked his thoughts on Capaldi. Come on Chris, landing an iconic role that helped your career can’t be that bad, can it?

“The Doctor’s Daughter” Review

We’re back with Tennant this week as we take a look at an often overlooked episode. There’s plenty to like with this story but there’s also something about it that holds fans back from re-watching it. Did we get on board with The Doctor and Jenny’s cause or did we walk away feeling a little un-loved?

It’s been great chatting through some interesting news stories this week and also talking more in-depth than we thought about this week’s review episode The Doctor’s Daughter.

Thanks for joining us and until next time – Allons-y!!!
