Big Blue Box Podcast – Episode 35

Happy 10th Birthday Doctor Who! What a cool way to celebrate your birthdays eh? A 50th followed by a 10th! Welcome inside the Tardis for our anniversary show not just to celebrate 10 years of new Who on our screens but the 1 year anniversary of the podcast. We recap on some of the last few years on new Who and the podcast, some good news stories then our review of Rose. One lucky listener also gets to find out if they’ve won our huge giveaway. A lot to get through so, as 9 would say – Run!

The News

The Horror Channel has picked up an award for best Design – General Image Programme Design Package at the PromaxBDA Europe Awards 2015. We’ve mentioned this cool design on the show recently and we’re thrilled this has scooped an award. It’s also great that more people get to see it as it’s now on Freeview (channel 70) so go and check out lots of classic Who!

Doctor Who: Legacy, the people behind the awesome skill based mobile game, have brought out a new adventure called Bigger on the Inside and it looks great in all its 8-bit wonder. To access the new adventure, head to the Specials tab within the Legacy game. With nearly 2 million downloads under it’s belt there’s never been a better time to get into this very addictive Who game.

More awards for the show! This time it’s bagged two at the Cardiff Life awards for Best in Leisure and Tourism (The Doctor Who Experience) and Best Creative in the City (Cardiff based special effects company Real SFX). More shiny things to put on the shelf.

“Rose” Review

It wouldn’t be a fitting 10th anniversary show without revisiting the episode that brought long-time fans back into new yet familiar adventures whilst also starting the cycle all over again for a new generation. We talk trough the pressure on Russell T Davies, Julie Gardner, Chris Eccleston and Billie Piper. We laugh at Clive, the burping bin and Jackie Tyler’s seduction tactics. Overall, we celebrate this important episode that paved the way for new Who since.

Thank you for joining us for episode 35 and also for sticking with us in our first year. We would like to thank ALL OF OUR LISTENERS who have followed us, commented on our posts and tweets, liked us, agreed with us, disagreed with us and generally interacted in any way shape or form. It’s been a wonderful ride for Who fans over the last 10 years and it’s been a privilege to have you guys listen for a small portion of that. We honestly do appreciate all your feedback and here’s not only to another year inside the Big Blue Box Podcast but another 10 years of Who on our screens. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Until next time – Allons-y!

    Really love Rose, the only part I don’t like is the burping bin, which divides some fandom. But what a return to our screens. Great review as always! 9/10.
