Episode notes

Welcome to Episode 200…

We made it to 200!

Wow, where has the time gone?! Back in 2014, we had no idea that our show would last this long and how it would progress in an already growing area of Who podcasts. I’m thrilled with the community we’ve built and able to share the good times with you all. Over the last 200 hundred shows, we’ve reviewed a ton of Who (and there’s lots of classic Who left to do!), put together an awesome writing team who put out great articles each week, travelled to plenty of conventions and met lots of you plus we’ve interviewed some great people involved in the show.

A huge huge huge thank you to all of you who take the time each week to listen to our crazy waffle and rantings. Whether you’ve been with us since the early days or you jumped onboard last week – we wouldn’t carry on doing it if there was no one to listen to us. Any interaction you’ve had with us, be it as a listener, chatted with us on the socials, sent in a review etc, you make it all worthwhile. For that, again, Adam and I want to send you all a massive thank you and here’s to the next 200 shows! Ready… Aaaaaaaaaaaaaallons-y!

The News

We kick off with the sad news of Production Designer Michael Pickwoad and Jaqueline Pearce have passed away but then some happier news of our friends in South Africa getting a special Who experience at the first Africa Comic Con.

Merch Corner

The BBC continue their retro audio releases with the Dalek Audio Annual, we gush over the upcoming K-9 figure from Robert Harrop, Paul McGann and Sheridan Smith are reuniting for more audio adventures as The Doctor and Lucie Miller at Big Finish and Titan Comics reveal more covers and details for their upcoming 13th Doctor run.

“Earthshock” Review

So we, er, forgot that we did a Davison story recently (Ep197 – Snakedance) but what the hey, more Fifth Doctor action is never a bad thing and so we get stuck into a bit of a milestone for the show with the first (proper) death of a companion. Adric gets bumped off but what about the rest of the story? A decent Cyberman revival or is it “shock”ing?

Thank you so much for joining us for 200. Next week for episode 201 we’re reviewing the Torchwood story – Small Worlds. Until then have a great week and until next time – Allons-y!
