Big Blue Box Podcast – Episode 53

The Daleks are back this week for our review of Davison story Resurrection of the Daleks but first, some Doctor Who news…

The News

Speaking of the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison himself has written his autobiography titled The Fifth(ish) Doctor: Peter Davison which is due out April 2016 and can be pre-ordered from Amazon. Very much looking forward to this one and an insight into Davison’s Doctor.

UK fans are finally getting the new Who series 1 – 4 on blu ray as separate editions. Up to now you could only get these on blu ray by purchasing the complete series 1-7 box set at a rather high price. These will be around £20 and released on 31st August. Good news!

Unfortunate news for Who fans in the US hoping to attend the Symphonic Spectacular on the 7th October. Shows at the Barclays Centre in New York have been cancelled without reason. Ticket holders will be issued a refund however it’s still unclear as to why the shows have been pulled? Hopefully you’ll get a rescheduled date.

There’s another chance to see previews of the series 9 opening two-parter The Magician’s Apprentice and The Witch’s Familiar. If you were lucky enough to get tickets that is. Run by BAFTA, they will host the two parter in Cardiff on 10th September followed by a Q&A with Capaldi, Coleman, Moffat and producer Brian Minchin. Once again, no spoilers please!

“Resurrection of the Daleks” Review

We travel back to 1984 this week for our review of this classic and often overshadowed Dalek story. Dark undertones, a high death count and a companion’s departure puts this tale at the more sombre end of the Doctor’s journey. Does it still impress or leave us feeling colder than a 90 year old cryogenic imprisonment?
