Big Blue Box Podcast – Episode 54

Hello you lot. Episode 54 drops a huge news story this week and then we’re onto our review of what seems like an often forgotten episode from series 1.

The News

We’ve been thinking about this and wondering if it will happen for a while and now we have confirmation – River Song is back! The BBC have officially announced that River will be back for this year’s Christmas Special starring alongside Peter Capaldi. We’re not sure on River’s involvement past the Christmas Special and this is the only episode currently featuring the character that we’re aware of. Christmas is certainly looking to be a belter.

While Big Finish are pumping out some amazing audio plays we can’t forget some of the great BBC Audio books that have graced our ears. Coming this September are two interesting looking titles; The Two Doctors read by none other than Colin Baker and The Curse of Fenric read by Terry Molloy. These sound cool and worth checking out.

Rejoice! The long awaited troubled DVD The Underwater Menace has finally come up for pre-order on the BBC Shop site. Priced at £13.99 it should be released on the 26th October. If you want a signed copy by Anneke Wills you can pre-order from her site for slightly more at £18.99.

“Boom Town” Review

Ah Boom Town, the often misplaced episode from Who’s return in 2005. Viewed as a filler story before the two-part finale that follows can it redeem itself and go out with a boom or just fizzle out like a faulty extrapolator?

    Roger Delgado’s wife was a spider in Planet of the Spiders. I know this because it said so in the most recent DWM.
