Big Blue Box Podcast – Episode 47

Greetings Who fans, good to have your ears for episode 47. Let’s go straight in with talk of the official festival, news round up then our review of Paul McGann’s Doctor Who: The Movie.

The News

If you’re enjoying the current run of Who comics from Titan then you’ll be pleased to hear that Year Two has been successfully commissioned and kicks off this September with stories for the Tenth and Eleventh Doctor’s. Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor: Year Two #1 lands Sep 9th and Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor: Year Two #1 is released Sep 16th. No word as yet on stories for the 9th or 12th Doctor’s but watch this space.

Dan Starky has been expanding his Who character repertoire lately. He was snapped at what looks like The Doctor Who Experience in Cardiff in a custom made mini-Cyberman outfit. What can this mean? Is this something we’ll see in Series 9 this September or is it a bit of fun? Either way, Starky looks less than thrilled in the pics and we much prefer him as Commander Strax.

Capaldi and Coleman are going to Germany to play special guests at a Who event in Berlin. Friday 17th July sees a special fan event in the heart of Berlin and we think this is a great idea. As Who grows in popularity across Europe it’s only fitting that the stars pop over and say hi. If any of our German listeners attend please send us some pics!

“The Movie” Review

Ah, The Movie, or The TV Movie, or Doctor Who The Movie. Whatever your naming convention it’s a very different beast this one and a story we’ve been looking forward to reviewing for ages. You’ll know the drill with this one but does it leave us feeling regenerated and alive or cold and morgue-like?
