    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 8 minutes and 0 seconds

    For many months the topic, "Alien Worlds" has sat on the Doctor Who Show's episode list, staring at Rob & Dave as they marched through each previous month inexorably towards finally doing it.

    And tonight the guys finally get to talk about their favourite alien worlds from both Classic and Nu-Who. Which ones will they choose? Will their favourite Doctors influence their choices?

    Before then of course, they stick to show's format and talk about the past month in Doctor Who news - this time including the show's 57th anniversary - in addition to some short topics.

  • Primary Sources – May 1989

    16 November 2020 (2:00am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 22 minutes and 58 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Welcome to the second episode of the new podcast we’re dropping on the feed every month in between our regular monthly show.

    These are short (20 minute-ish) shows where Rob from the Doctor Who Show sits down with a guest and reads letters – the primary sources of the title – about Doctor Who from the 80s and 90s, for the purpose of kick-starting a conversation. Vitally, the guest doesn’t know anything about the letters until the recording.

    This is Doctor Who without a safety net. The conversations could go anywhere the guest wants them to go.

    This is Primary Sources.



  • Season 25

    26 October 2020 (2:00am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 30 minutes and 58 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Back in April of this year we reviewed Season 16 after a listener poll selected it from the list of four options we provided. A close runner-up to that season was Season 25 and, given its clear popularity with our listeners in the poll, plus the fact it debuted in October of 1988, we thought why not dive in and review it here in October 2020?

    After a discussion of the season overall, including thoughts on where the show was at in general, the Australian fan experience for us, and also script editor Andrew Cartmel's first year in the role where he had full control over every story in the season, we then give our thoughts on each individual episode, before a summary at the end.

    Welcome to a new podcast we'll be dropping on the feed every month; usually two weeks after our main episode but on this weekend, we're dropping a Primary Sources on the Saturday and a Doctor Who Show on the Sunday. So you'll be getting another Primary Sources in two week's time, then another Doctor Who Show two weeks after that. Rinse & repeat.

    What's it all about? Well, take a listen! These are short (20 minute-ish) shows where Rob from the Doctor Who Show sits down with a guest and reads letters - that's the primary sources of the title - about Doctor Who from the 80s and 90s, for the purpose of kick-starting a conversation. Vitally, the guest doesn't know anything about the letters until the recording.

    When the world at large thinks about Doctor Who monsters, Daleks and Cybermen rule the roost. But what sits on the secondary shelf of adversaries? Arguably the Sontarans are pretty high in the pecking order for both Classic and Modern Doctor Who fans, but how did they get there? Do they deserve to be there? What does the future hold?

    After some news and short topics, Rob and Dave take a deep dive on the Sontarans. Their listeners write in with a ton of feedback, too.

    Every 12 months-ish, Rob and Dave look at an entire era of Doctor Who. Having done the Davison, Hartnell, and Pertwee eras in past episodes, the guys thought it was high time they did a Doctor from Nu-Who. But which Doctor...?

    It didn't take long for them to decide on Christoper Eccleston.

    Before then, the guys discuss the past month in Doctor Who which includes Peter Capaldi landing in the new Suicide Squad film; Brian Blessed talks about being offered the role of the Second Doctor; 'Time Fracture' - a new immersive Doctor Who experience is coming to London in 2021; and Fury from the Deep announced as the next DVD release.

    Short topics include: a Twitter survey Dave conducted on Twitter about Turlough; new Character Options sets excite both Rob and Dave (but not the same sets!); and Rob finishes his collection of Second Doctor PDA novels.

  • Alternate Galaxies: Star Trek: Picard (Season 1)

    17 August 2020 (3:00am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 11 minutes and 21 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Rob and Dave discuss season one of Star Trek: Picard.

    Star Trek: Picard is an American web television series featuring the character Jean-Luc Picard, created for CBS All Access by Akiva Goldsman, Michael Chabon, Kirsten Beyer, and Alex Kurtzman. It is the eighth series in the Star Trek franchise, and was launched in 2020 as part of Kurtzman's expansion of the franchise. 

    Picard begins 20 years after Star Trek: Nemesis (2002) and sees a retired Picard deeply affected by the death of Data in that film as well as the destruction of the planet Romulus in the film Star Trek (2009).

    Star Trek: Picard premiered on January 23, 2020, and its first season ran for 10 episodes until March 26. Second and third seasons were ordered before the first season debuted. The series was met with positive reviews from critics, who highlighted Stewart's performance and the focus on character over action but criticised the slow pace of the series.

  • The Girl Who Waited

    27 July 2020 (3:00am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 16 minutes and 50 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Regular listeners will know that aside from our 'hot take' episodes whenever new Doctor Who emerges, our other episodes are hardly ever based on reviewing a single story. In that way, we're probably different to many, or even most, Doctor Who podcasts out there which make single story reviews their main focus.

     

    We 'broke' this rule in September 2019 by randomly selecting The Keeper of Traken for a deep dive and we loved the experience so much, we decided to do it again sometime in the following year.

     

    Conscious that we did a Classic Who episode last time, a few weeks back we ran a Twitter poll asking listeners what they'd like to hear us do a standalone podcast on: Amy's Choice, The Long Game, The Girl Who Waited, or The Idiot's Lantern.

     

    136 votes were cast, with 35.3% asking for The Girl Who Waited.

     

    So... here we are! But some things never change and before we get to the episode itself we also rattle through some listener reviews, Doctor Who news, and short topics.

     

    And be sure to let us know what you thought of our opinion on the story, so we can read you out, next time.

  • Companions that span Doctors

    29 June 2020 (3:00am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 10 minutes and 31 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Rob and Dave take a look at all the companions who spanned across different Doctors, from the first regeneration to the most recent.

    Think: Ben and Polly, Sarah Jane Smith, Adric, Nyssa, Tegan, Peri, Mel, Rose, and Clara. There's a surprising number of them!

    How did these companions assist in the transition? Were they better with their intended/orginal Doctor, or the one who came next?

    Before the feature, the guys also rattle through some recent news and short topics relating to their Doctor Who fandom this past month.

  • Terry Nation's Doctor Who Show

    1 June 2020 (3:00am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 29 minutes and 39 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Terence Joseph Nation (8 August 1930 – 9 March 1997) was a Welsh television writer and novelist who listeners to our podcast will know as the creator of the Daleks.

    As well as his work on Doctor Who for the First, Third and Fourth Doctors, Nation also created cult TV classics Survivors and Blake's 7, in addition to writing for The Avengers, The Baron, The Champions, Department S, The Persuaders! and The Saint.

    Despite this astounding pedigree versus many of his peers, it's fair to say that Nation isn't widely regarded as one of the great classic Doctor Who writers.

    Rob and Dave take a deep dive into Nation's career and fan perceptions of him to both re-evaluate the man and also pay tribute to his time on Doctor Who.

    What are your favourite Terry Nation penned stories or series?

    Rob and Dave asked listeners at the end of the previous monthly episode whether they should tackle Season 16 or Season 25 in this episode. Almost 150 votes were received across Facebook and Twitter, with Season 16 just squeaking through for the win.

    After a brief discussion of the season, including thoughts on new companion Romana played by Mary Tamm, and returning producer Graham Williams, the guys then give their thoughts on each individual episode, before a summary at the end, tackling their best and worst episodes and whether the season works overall. What are your thoughts on it?

  • The Podcast of Decision III (The DW Show Presents...)

    13 April 2020 (3:00am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 29 minutes and 12 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Time for another edition of the Podcast of Decision, this time featuring Dave, along with sometime Doctor Who Show contributor and co-host; Richard, and the guys from the 42 to Doomsday podcast; Rob and Mark.

    If you’re unfamiliar with The Podcast of Decision, in November 2018, Rob and Dave sat down in a hotel room with Todd and Nathan from Flight Through Entirety (and Jodie into Terror), to record a breezy wander through all of Doctor Who via some games Dave devised. Dave called this recording, The Podcast of Decision.

    In August 2019 we ran a second installment - coincidentally featuring today's cast - and it received such good feedback, a third edition was always going to happen at some stage. So here it finally is!

    We hope you're all safe, staying at home and washing your hands and perhaps content like this can be of some comfort to ward off the dreaded 'cabin fever' during these extraordinary times.

    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (also known as Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker) is a 2019 American epic space-opera film produced, co-written, and directed by J. J. Abrams. It is the third installment of the Star Wars sequel trilogy, following The Force Awakens (2015) and The Last Jedi (2017), and the final episode of the nine-part "Skywalker saga".

    It was produced by Lucasfilm and Abrams's production company Bad Robot Productions, and was distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. The film's ensemble cast includes Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Anthony Daniels, Naomi Ackie, Domhnall Gleeson, Richard E. Grant, Lupita Nyong'o, Keri Russell, Joonas Suotamo, Kelly Marie Tran, Ian McDiarmid, and Billy Dee Williams.

    After the new trilogy was announced following Disney's acquisition of Lucasfilm in 2012, it was originally reported that The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson would write the script for Episode IX. In August 2015, Colin Trevorrow was hired to direct the film while constant-collaborator Derek Connolly would co-write a new script (both would eventually receive story credit with Abrams and Chris Terrio). In September 2017, Trevorrow left the project following creative differences with producer Kathleen Kennedy, and a few days later, it was announced that Abrams had been hired to return. Principal photography began in August 2018 at Pinewood Studios in England, and wrapped in February 2019; post-production was completed on November 24, 2019.

    The Rise of Skywalker had its world premiere in Los Angeles on December 16, 2019, and was theatrically released in the United States on December 20, 2019. The film received mixed reviews from critics, with some praising its celebration of the entire saga and others considering it unimaginative and not bold enough.

    Direct Podcast Download

    As November 23, 2019 approached, the BBC started dropping a surprising amount of information about the forthcoming Series 12 of Doctor Who after a relative dearth of information for the entire year.

    Then, on Doctor Who's 56th birthday, a trailer for the new series dropped. Unfortunately, we recorded this episode a few days before that (!) fully acknowledging that we'd miss the trailer that we knew was coming, however, Rob has subsequently blogged about it.

    After discussion of what we know about Series 12 during our news segment, this episode then moves onto some short topics including what we're watching at present, then our main topic for the month (as revealed in our previous episode), Our Top 5 Nu-Who Moments.

    How did we do? Did you like our picks?

    And as always, we hope you like the episode...!

    10 episodes into our fourth series and 50 years after he took on the role (remember, Season 7 filming was well underway by late 1969 for a January 1970 debut), we discuss the Jon Pertwee era of Doctor Who.

    We discuss each season, along with breakout chats on the Pertwee companions, UNIT, the Third Doctor in other media, such as books and audios, and more.

    Before then, as usual, we discuss the past month in Doctor Who which, this time around, includes Jodie Whittaker singing some Coldplay, an amateur version of Mission to the Unknown, and Doctorates all 'round for the cast and crew of The Woman Who Fell to Earth. Were they deserved?

    Dave and Richard have been to see Joker. What did they think of it? Tune in!

    Joker is a 2019 American psychological thriller film directed by Todd Phillips, who co-wrote the screenplay with Scott Silver. The film, based on DC Comics characters, stars Joaquin Phoenix as the Joker. An origin story set in 1981, the film follows Arthur Fleck, a failed stand-up comedian who turns to a life of crime and chaos in Gotham City. Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz, Frances Conroy, Brett Cullen, Glenn Fleshler, Bill Camp, Shea Whigham, and Marc Maron appear in supporting roles. Joker was produced by Warner Bros. Pictures, DC Films, and Village Roadshow Pictures, and distributed by Warner Bros.

    Joker premiered at the 76th Venice International Film Festival on August 31, 2019, where it won the Golden Lion, and was released in the United States on October 4, 2019. The film polarised critics; while Phoenix's performance was praised, the dark tone, portrayal of mental illness, and handling of violence divided responses. Joker also generated concerns of inspiring real-world violence; the movie theatre where the 2012 Aurora, Colorado mass shooting occurred during a screening of The Dark Knight Rises refused to show it.



  • The Keeper of Traken

    As regular listeners know, Rob and Dave differentiate the Doctor Who Show from most other Who podcasts by seldom talking about a single Doctor Who story as the main segment of their monthly shows. Their topics are usually broader, taking in multiple stories as they work their way through a topic.

    This month, however, the guys have decided to mix things up and do something a little different by taking a deep dive on the penultimate (and underrated?) Tom Baker story, The Keeper of Traken, as the main focus of the episode.

    Before they get there, however, they follow their usual format of cherry picking some of the more interesting Doctor Who news stories for the previous month, and also rattle through a few quick 'mini topics' of their own.

  • Terrance Dicks (14 April 1935 - 29 August 2019)

    Terrance Dicks was born 14th April 1935 and passed away 29th August 2019, aged 84, leaving a figurative hole in the heart of Doctor Who fans of a certain age around the globe.

    We at the Doctor Who Show were both massive fans of 'Uncle Terrance', to the degree that we joyfully dedicated a whole episode of the podcast to him back in January, 2019.

    Tonight, we take that audio and add some new comments recorded today, within 24hrs of hearing the news, so we can - in some small way - pay a final tribute to the great man.

    We also hope if there are listeners of ours out there who are wanting to remember Terrance in the days ahead, then perhaps this audio file will be an uplifing and maybe even fun way to look back on his awesome career and fantastic body of work.

    Vale, Terrance.

    For this Dave-lite month (while he travels the world yet again), we ironically have a bumper podcast featuring The Podcast of Decision 2 - a pre-recorded segment with Dave, his podcasting partner on Spacefall: A Blakes 7 podcast and the Goodies Pirate Podcast, Richard, and the guys from the 42 to Doomsday podcast, Rob and Mark.

    If you're unfamiliar with The Podcast of Decision, in November 2018, Rob and Dave from The Doctor Who Show sat down in a hotel room with Todd and Nathan from Flight Through Entirety (and Jodie into Terror), to record a breezy wander through all of Doctor Who via some games Dave devised. Dave called this recording... you guessed it... The Podcast of Decision.

    The Podcast of Decision 2 on this episode is top and tailed with news, views, and quite a lot of chuckling from your regular host Rob (not to be confused with 42 to Doomsday's Rob), along with Richard - pulling a double shift this month and making his debut on the show as as a co-host. Confused? It will all make sense when you press play. We hope.

    David Kitchen will return to his co-host mic in The Doctor Who Show S04 E09.

    How has a Doctor Who podcast got through almost four seasons without doing a Cyberman episode? A great question, but the Doctor Who Show has achieved that. Until now.

    In this episode, Rob and Dave talk Cybermen in a nice, loose discussion encompassing the 60s, 70s, 80s, Wilderness Years, Nu-Who, Big Finish and other media that the silver giants have appeared in. All interspersed with their own feelings on the overall Cyberman concept, behind the scenes, and more.

    Doctor Who has such a rich and varied history that, at different times in its development, quite accomplished people in front of and behind the cameras have been overshadowed by other talented people through no real fault of their own.

    In this episode, Rob and Dave seek to redress the balance to some degree by naming their cast and crew members who were 'living in the shadows' of others during their time on the show. Examples come from 60s, 70s, 80s, and Nu-Who.

    Of course, the episode also features news and mini-topics, including some remarks on the passing of Paul Darrow, who was very dear to Dave and greatly respected by Rob, too.

    The twenty-second season of Doctor Who began on 5 January 1985 with the serial Attack of the Cybermen, and ended with Revelation of the Daleks.

    To classic era Doctor Who fans it's, "the season that got the series cancelled". But is there more to it than that?

    In this episode, Rob and Dave return with some news, short topics, and a feature on Season 22. Every episode is discussed, alongside what was happening (or not happening) in the production office.

    Did you like Season 22 at the time? If you didn't, have you warmed to it, over the years? Or were you too young to see it at the time and have come to it with fresher eyes - and more modern TV sensibilities - in more recent times? Does it work, or not work, for you? Did the series deserve to be axed after this season?
