Why not spend your Christmas holidays catching up on the latest episodes from the lads from down under with the 42 to Doomsday podcast!
Episode 26 – Rob and Mark are back and in this special episode are joined by Starburst Columnist and Blue Box podcast maestro JR Southall where we throw the running order out the window and wax lyrical about Podcasting, Eric Saward, the aborted Season 23, Eric Saward, the New Series, the crazy science of The Tenth Planet oh and Eric Saward! We also subject JR to our International Omni-Rumour alert system are we ready to call time on it or is it “far from being all over”.
Episode 27 – We (again) break our first law of time and review the remaining stories of Peter Capaldi’s debut series including the he controversial finale with Mary Poppins and the Iron Patriot (a.k.a Cyber Lethbridge-Stewart) then offer our judgement on Series 8, was Clara Oswald redeemed in our eyes and will Rob’s desk be able to survive his judgement on the Moff’s latest arc machinations?
Finally, we wheel out the Ouija board and ask is recasting dead actors with new ones “all done in the best possible taste” and we then go over our bulging mailbag of listener feedback – check out the best theory yet about the The Paternoster Gang
Episode 28: Wonderful Christmastime? – In our final ‘regular’ episode for 2014 we look at the many different Christmas episodes served up by the new series as part of the BBC festive schedule. Are they just a load of left over Christmas turkey or is there a gold coin buried in a Christmas pudding? We also talk about how Christmas is celebrated in Australia, more of your missives in our Santa sack and what exactly does the Ribos (or is it Rebos?) Operation have in common with Boney M?
All this plus letters from from our lovely elves (listeners), a review of the Lords of Time 3 convention in Melbourne and what did (Uncle) Terrance Dicks think of the whole Time Lord gender swapping shenanigans?
New Years Eve Special – It Was 30 Years Ago
Happy New Year (eve) everyone and to help you bring in the new year in style we release our second minisode / cutaway! The 28th February 1985 saw the first attempt at the cancellation / postponement/ hiatus / whatever of the classic series starring the then Doctor, Colin Baker. To protest (at this let’s be honest ludicrous move) in March of that same year Ian Levine harnessed the vocal talents of many a Z list celebrity to ‘sing’ for the series return to the small screen in a musical opus called Doctor in Distress. To celebrate the upcoming 30th anniversary of this particular single, Rob and Mark again follow the podcasting herd and proudly release their first DVD commentary to accompany the music video for this fine recording. And just like U2’s middling recent album we are giving it away free!
So get your New Years Eve party rolling in style, for as a special bonus we include the instrumental version of this classic for everyone to sing along!
