Big Blue Box Podcast – Episode 50

Yes it’s the big 50 for us and what we have a crackin’ show lined up. A couple of rants, some great news items and our review episode guaranteed to split opinion – Love and Monsters. Let’s do it Who fans!

A big thank you

We’ve reached episode 50! Adam and I would like to say a HUGE thank you for your continued support and listening over the last year and a bit, it’s been an absolute joy to record this show and we’re always grateful for your thoughts. We always love reading out your views on our review episode each week and you guys never disappoint. Here’s to another 50 episodes!

The News

The 6th Doctor Colin Baker’s new project has just been fully funded! Publicly funded movie Last Man on Earth is currently in rehearsal in Manchester with things moving nicely into production, thanks to your pledges. We’ll be on the look out for this upon release. You can find out more here.

Tucked away in the BBC Annual Review is a tiny nugget of important information – Doctor Who’s series 10 has now been confirmed. Assuming that at this stage in the game and DW’s global success episode 10 was a sure thing, the BEEB didn’t shout about it. Still at least we know it’ll be on our screens for another year at least.

Capaldi hints at a Caecilius return? We heard a while ago that in series 9 they would explain the reason for the Doctor being seen previously in The Fires of Pompeii. Well know Capaldi has confirmed this along with Moffat saying that it will be subtly referenced.

Some lucky folks will be seeing the series 9 opener The Magician’s Apprentice early as a special advanced screening is taking place on August 27th at the Edinburgh International Film Festival. No spoilers please!

“Love and Monsters” Review

Often viewed as one of the weakest episode’s in modern Who we’re getting stuck into this “Doctor-Lite” story to get to the bottom of the negative views plus also giving our own views and the oh-so important score. It’s gonna be a rough ride so batten down the hatches!

This week’s trivia question

Last episode we asked you – When the Doctor first met Amy where did he say the swimming pool was? The answer is the Library.

This week’s question is – What was the 100th story to be broadcast? Give us your answer in the comments below or post it on Twitter or Facebook. Good luck!

Thanks for flying in the Tardis with us again and remember next week it’s our commentary of School Reunion, we’ll be back with episode 51 the week after. Have a great week and until then – Allons-y!

    Well done on 50 guys! Here’s to 50 more!
    And I feel like I should point out that the Hoix did indeed make a very, very brief appearance in the Pandorica Opens #themoreyouknow
