    Once again, it's time to share a few highlights from the past year of Something Who as we bring you a compilation from our episodes in 2023.

    And there's a lot to choose from. In addition to our regular presenting team of Richard, Paul, Giles and Simon, we had a lot of guests this year, including Tim Burrows from The Missing Episodes podcast on our 10th anniversary discussion of the Omnirumour. We chatted to an actual Doctor Who writer in Matthew Jacobs, along with Vanessa Yuille, who together made the wonderful fan film Doctor Who Am I? Both Matthew and Vanessa were almost upstaged by a pneumatic drill, but saw the funny side.

    We spoke with Steve Manfred about his friendship and collaboration with writer Neil Gaiman. Elizabeth Morton spoke with us about her family connections to Doctor Who, as well as her writing career. And Benjamin Cook, Rich Tipple and Timothy K Brown discussed their work on colourising the first Dalek story for the 60th anniversary.

    We hope you enjoy these clips and, if you do, please peruse our back catalogue for the full versions of all of these items and perhaps you'd like to leave us a review on Apple Podcasts or similar platform.

    The opening music is Three Guitars Mood 2 and, yes, that is Richard playing the ukulele and kazoo on possibly the worst ever version of the Doctor Who theme tune at the end.

    Doctor Who Am I? is widely available in the UK on DVD and Blu-ray https://www.amazon.co.uk/Doctor-Who-Am-I-Blu-ray/dp/B0BGPYV3SD/, also on Amazon Prime: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Doctor-Who-Am-Daphne-Ashbrook/dp/B0B8Q734H3/, and ITVX https://www.itv.com/.

    Tim's podcast Doctor Who: The Missing Episodes Podcast is essential listening for anyone interested in this topic and can be found here: https://missingepisodes.podbean.com/

    Elizabeth Morton's latest novel, written as Eliza Morton, is The Orphans from Liverpool Lane, a Pan paperback described as "A warm yet gritty saga set in Liverpool in the 1940s from the acclaimed author of Angel of Liverpool." You can get it from your bookseller of choice, or this one: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Orphans-Liverpool-Lane-heartwarming-emotional-ebook/dp/B0BM9VN5CT 

    Simon Guerrier has written a fantastic book about Doctor Who's first Story Editor entitled "David Whitaker in an Exciting Adventure with Television" which you'll want to order here: https://tenacrefilms.bigcartel.com/product/david-whitaker-in-an-exciting-adventure-with-television

    What says Christmas more than looking at a couple of Doctor Who stories that happened to air in Christmas week? And, since regeneration is in the air, why not feature that too?

    OK, so the first one is a bit of a cheat, 3rd Doctor finale Planet of the Spiders from Season 11 was repeated during the Christmas holidays in 1974, but after that we'll examine the 11th Doctor's swansong The Time of the Doctor which was the Christmas special in the anniversary year of 2013. This episode consists of the second half of that conversation, featuring The Time of the Doctor and our comparisons.

    You know how when you've been waiting months for a new episode of Something Who and then 3 turn up close together?

    Just over a week ago on 23rd November 2023, Doctor Who's 60th anniversary, the highlight on BBC TV was The Daleks in Colour - a 75 minute reimagining of the first Dalek story specially colourised to help bring the story to life for a new generation. And less than a week later I had the good fortune to chat with 3 of the team responsible for making it - Benjamin Cook, the Editor, Rich Tipple, Lead Colourisation Artist and Timothy K Brown, Colourisation Artist.

    It's a fun chat that goes into storytelling, why some of the creative choices were made, some of the difficulties involved and how they were overcome and what it's like to have your name in the same set of credits as William Hartnell.

    I noticed on listening this morning that I'd somehow truncated the opening sketch from episode 83, which would be less of a problem if it was my usual hackery, but since it was contributed by our guest, Simon Guerrier, I thought I should give you the chance to hear it in all its glory. It wasn't much of a cut, but at least it has a proper beginning now.

  • Episode 75: Omnirumour 10th Anniversary Special Part 2

    Here's part 2 of our Omnirumour 10th Anniversary Special.

    On 29th March 2013, the DWO fan site said that 'a classic series related announcement' was coming and hinted that it was missing episodes related. In June of that year, the Bleeding Cool website ran a story suggesting that a large number of missing Doctor Who episodes had been found. Then Ian Levine tweeted about “three tons of evidence”. An e-mail, purportedly from a Radio Wiltshire DJ, but showing signs of mixed authorship was being passed between fans and excitement on the forums reached fever pitch. Lots of rumours were passed around and the number of episodes found was often said to be 90. 

    Finally in October the Radio Times announced that newly-discovered lost Patrick Troughton episodes would be made available for digital download within a week. It was proof, surely, that all the rumours were true? But after The Enemy of the World and The Web of Fear were released, that was it. And ten years later we still don’t know the truth of it, and people still discuss their theories on forums.

    There’s a name given to all this madness - the Omnirumour. And on the tenth anniversary of it gaining broad publicity within fandom, I’m with two fellow-sufferers - Tim and Giles. We’ve all spent more time than we care to recount pondering these matters. In this episode of Something Who we’ll chew over what we know for sure, what can’t be true and some of the things that might be true. And finally give you our personal opinions.

    Here's another of our special episodes.

    Over a year ago our podcast Twitter account was followed by Matthew Jacobs, the writer of the TV Movie. This was both exciting and terrifying in equal measure, as we'd just made an episode that featured the TV Movie, that had not been entirely complimentary. We became aware that Matthew was promoting an independent film called Doctor Who Am I? And recently Richard took the chance to watch it on DVD, though it's now widely available in the UK on a variety of platforms. So, excitingly, in this episode, Richard talks with Matthew and Vanessa Yuille who created the film together. This is funny and sometimes deep conversation about the nature of being a fan, with the added excitement of someone with a pneumatic drill attacking the outside of Matthew's apartment. We talk about Vanessa and Matthew's journey with the film, US fans and conventions, and we touch on Matthew's childhood connection with the with Doctor Who, when his father played Doc Holliday in The Gunfighters.

    Thanks to Vanessa and Matthew for sharing your stories and for the generous donation of your time.

    After our chat last time about the story The Doctor's Wife, we were contacted by long time fan and sometime Something Who listener Steve Manfred, who had something of a hand in the genesis of the story.

    Steve discusses his friendship with the author Neil Gaiman, how that led to him having a consultancy role on Neil Gaiman's two Doctor Who stories, and he corrects some of more egregious mistakes, as well as answering some of the questions we had posed.

    Richard's other podcast is called "If It's Hurting, It's not Working" and it's a fun and informative look at work - why we work, how we work, and what makes a great job. And also what makes a great workplace, how to turn things round when we're not enjoying our work and, in the end, how we can all make our work better. https://ifhurtnotwork.podbean.com/

    The opening music is Three Guitars Mood 2 and, yes, that is Richard playing the ukulele and kazoo on possibly the worst ever version of the Doctor Who theme tune at the end.

    Here's a clip of a new podcast I'm launching with my colleague Emily called "If It's Hurting, It's not Working", all about work - why we work, how we work, and what makes a great job. And also what makes a great workplace, how to turn things round when we're not enjoying our work and, in the end, how we can all make our work better. In this episode we introduce ourselves, Emily reveals her enthusiasm for Kylie Minogue, we talk about how success is often a mixture of determination and luck, Richard describes "fishing" in a nuclear reactor pressure vessel and we discover that Emily's primary school teacher wasn't very nice to her.

    Richard, Paul, Giles and Gav are hijacked from the Something Who bunker in "1980" and forced to record by Sutekh to record an episode about Pyramids of Mars.

    This is the first half of a typical Something Who comparison between two stories - Pyramids of Mars and Mummy on the Orient Express. This half focuses almost exclusively on Pyramids, but stick around, the second half will be along soon. Boring tech problems have caused a delay.

    Richard's "poem" is a little grandiose, so Giles and Paul help him to add a touch of realism. Then it's time to discuss werewolf tales with Seventh Doctor story The Greatest Show in the Galaxy and 10th Doctor adventure Tooth and Claw.

    And whatever the title may suggest, we actually enjoyed them both a great deal.

    Gav's still trying to come to terms with his huge rant over The Gunfighters last episode. So we head for the pastoral calm of English public schools in Fifth Doctor story Mawdryn Undead and 10th Doctor adventure Human Nature / The Family of Blood. Along the way some of us expose our ignorance of the original Virgin novel Human Nature, the Boer War and the film If...

    Richard, Paul, Giles and Tim give the Ballad of the Last Chance Saloon their best shot, before looking at another pair of historical stories - 1st Doctor story The Gunfighters and 11th Doctor outing A Town Called Mercy, both set in the American West.

    Then we're interrupted by a rather familiar voice who's getting rather exercised by the lack of historical authenticity.
