Big Blue Box Podcast – Episode 41

Episode 41 is upon us and some great news stories await. We then dive into our review of Father’s Day and as a new feature we’re going to leave you each week with a trivia questions so thinking caps on. This way…

The News

Osgood and the Zygons are back for series 9! Yes, that jaw-dropping moment when Osgood was killed, is now being explained in the upcoming series. As we asked ourselves at the time, was it Osgood or the “Zygon-Osgood” who bit the dust? We’ll soon find out.

A special anniversary event is being held in New York to celebrate 10 years of Who. Organised by BAFTA Cymru, Cardiff Business Council, BBC America and BAFTA New York, it’s a night to celebrate the enormous talent and work of the teams in Wales and to mix with the US guys. It sounds like a great event but we do have a few thoughts on this one.

Jenna Coleman has put laid to rest a few rumours that her character has little to no involvement in series 9. With many set photos now released it’s an easy one to debunk and while it was purely speculation Jenna has gone on record to confirm her part in the next series.

Stand up comic Lee Mack has been onto the peeps at the BBC, desperate to land a guest role in Doctor Who. I guess hoping to follow in the footsteps of Frank Skinner, Mack wants to put a tick in the box as a Who fan.

“Father’s Day” Review

This episode was released 10 years ago yesterday and although we hadn’t noticed, it’s a very well timed review. An early episode of the Eccleston run it’s an emotional and well written story but does it leave us teary eyed and happy or bored and wanting more? Listen on to find out.

This week’s trivia question

    Great podcast Garry and Adam 😀 I really enjoyed it. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again I love Carnival of Monsters. It has it’s faults like every story does the Drashigs are pretty good monsters but are a bit underused in my opinion. It gets a 7/10 from me (although how it earned a spot in Revisitations 2 is frankly beyond me :P)
