Big Blue Box Podcast – Episode 66

Hey Who fans! Tissues at the ready for this one as we review Face the Raven but first some news and a competition!

The News

This week sees Doctor Who celebrate 52 years of broadcasting. It only feels like yesterday we were all celebrating the 50th anniversary which is crazy but overall what a massive achievement by all involved over the years bringing us Who. Here’s to many more years.

Some casting news – Matt Lucas of Little Britain fame and Greg Davies from the Inbetweeners have been cast for this year’s Christmas Special. It’s been hit and miss with predominantly comedic actors seen in Who (Peter Kay maybe?) so we shall see how this goes. Fingers crossed!


We have a collection of 6 new Doctor Who books up for grabs! Just head over to our Facebook page and tell us your favourite Who story. The winner will be announced next week, good luck.

“Face the Raven” Review

It was always going to be a sad one as we say goodbye to Clara and the Doctor is left alone once more. This episode also saw the return of Ashilda as the meddling immortal but now she’s gone and done it! Does this leave us wanting more and wanting Clara back or are we up for a bit of companion change?

This week’s trivia question

Last week we asked you – Before his death, what planet does Adric say he wants to be taken to? The answer is – Terradon.

This week’s question is – Who reportedly told the Doctor that he looked better in a cloak? Give us your answer in the comments below or post it on Twitter or Facebook. Good luck!

An emotional one this week and thank you again for your thoughts and audio clips. Next week looks very interesting and remember to let us know of any conventions you’re going to next year. Until next week – Allons-y!
