    Greetings and welcome to Episode 173. Before our review of Warriors of the Deep, it\'s time to dive into what\'s been happening in the world of Doctor Who...\n\nThe News\n\nSad news, again, as classic Who actor Peter Wyngarde has passed away aged 90.\n\nMerch Corner\n\nThis week\'s merch provided by our always friendly Dalek Tat - Reeltime Pictures are releasing The Doctors: The Sylvester McCoy Years on dvd in June and Big Finish have put up The 10th Doctor Chronicles for pre-order.\n\n"Warriors of the Deep" Review\n\nWow, it\'s been a while since we watched a 5th Doctor story so how does this one stack up? Two great classic monsters tag team the Doctor and a group of military folk in this base-under-siege story but, does it rise up like the tide on a beautiful beach or sink into the Myrk-y swamps of low review scores?\n\nThank you for listening and hanging out with us. Next week it\'s the 5th Doctor\'s turn with Warriors of the Deep so get those dvd\'s out. Have a great week and until next time - Allons-y!'

    Hey Who fans and welcome to episode 169. It\'s a solo Garry outing for our last show this year so without further ado...\n\n\nGarry is flying solo this week as Adam has already departed for his Christmas travels and it\'s also a different format than usual, partly due to no decent news or merch at the time of recording. So on this week\'s show:\n\nWhat has Garry been up to, the year in review for Doctor Who in general and the podcast, Q&A and plans for 2018.\n\nAs it\'s the last show of 2017 I\'d like to get soppy if I may and say that this year has been another brilliant year for us and that\'s all down to you. It would be a pretty rubbish show if we didn\'t hear back from you or converse with you on the interwebs about Who. Your listenership and interaction, whether it\'s saying hi on Twitter, sending us pics of your merch and conventions or sending in reviews, is what keeps us coming back every week. So for that I\'d like to say a massive thank you, you lot are awesome and we have such a great community. Thank you, thank you, thank you.\nI hope you all have a great Christmas and a very Happy New Year. Enjoy Twice Upon a Time and we\'ll see you on the flip flop. Allons-y!'

Strange, quirky and definitely interesting, how do we feel about this story that almost feels like a play?\n\nDates for your diary\n\nWith Christmas looming and the inevitable holidays nearly here there will be times when the show is not on or slightly different:\n\n\n
  • Next week (Fri 15th) will be a shorter show with just Garry and there will be no review, instead there will be a year in review and maybe some Q&A

  • There will be no podcast for 22nd and 29th December as Garry and Adam will be away on their Christmas hols

The first time round we gave it respectable scores (a 7 and an 8) as we\'re actually fans of the movie, especially it\'s soundtrack and of course, McGann as The Doctor. This time round and with a release to blu ray since our last review, does it still warm our hearts or are we slithering away like goo\n\nThank you so much as always for listening and sending us your reviews.

Now seems like a good time to re-look at this often well viewed Dalek story as Garry\'s view of the 7th Doctor has changed dramatically over the past year. Same deal or has this been elevated to higher scores? All we know is - there\'s always room for unlimited rice pudding!\n\nThank you so much as always for listening and sending us your reviews.

    \nThe News\n

    Another signed script is going up for auction, this time this year\'s upcoming Christmas Special - Twice Upon a Time. It\'s signed by Peter Capaldi, David Bradley, Mart Gatiss (who\'s donating the script) plus some others involved. You\'ve got a while before it closes in mid-November however it won\'t be cheap, the current bid is just over PS2,000 but it\'s for charity so the more the better.

    \nMerch Corner\n

    That grumpy Dalek throws us this week - all the deets on the upcoming Series 10 boxsets and another Who calendar for this year - Retro Visions.

    \n"The Power of Three" Review\n

    We haven\'t seen Mr Smith, along with Amy and Rory, in a while so we\'re looking forward to chewing the fat about this story written by our future show runner Mr Chibbers. Enjoyment x3 or fail?

    Hate kicking off with sad news but we say goodbye to Trevor Martin who has passed away at the age of 87. Trevor played one of the Time Lords in Troughton\'s last story The War Games and then more famously went on to play The Doctor in the stage play Doctor Who and the Daleks in the Seven Keys to Doomsday. We also discuss a story regarding Series 11 episode count and run time.

    That grumpy Dalek throws us this week - the upcoming 1st Doctor Funko Pop! is now up for pre-order, a new NYCC glow in the dark TARDIS from Titan and the unfinished 4th Doctor story Shada is getting the remaster/animation treatment.

    \n"Terminus" Review\n

    Classic week is bringing us the 5th Doctor story Terminus. It\'s good to be spending time with Mr Davison as it\'s been a while but does this one provide more good Black Guardian action or does it drag on, and on, and on, and on?

    \nThe News\n

    \n"The Parting of the Ways" Review\n

    It had to come at some point but we didn\'t want it to. We\'ve reached the end of our reviews for the 9th Doctor. Sad faces all round. Do we end on a high and praise the hard work of Chris, Billie, Russell and Julie (plus many more) or is it one of those finales?

    \n"Bad Wolf" Review\n

    It had to happen one day. Yes, we\'ve started that sad walk into our final reviews for Chris Eccleston\'s time as The Doctor. We\'re looking at the series one finale part one - Bad Wolf. Dated TV references (for some), suspense, deaths, naked Captain Jack, transmats and surprises this episode has it all.

    \nThe News\n

    Previous show runner Russell T Davies is awarded a Life Time Achievement Award and you could grab a signed script by Peter Capaldi (amongst other things) if you\'re quick.

    \n"The Enemy of the World" Review\n

    Yes, one of our favourite Doctor\'s playing a dual role in this "James Bond-esque" thriller of a story. Enough to keep us going over the six parts or are the dodgy accents enough to make us pull the plug?

    We discuss the rumour that\'s blown up the last few days that Bradley Walsh could be the next companion.

    \nMerch Corner\n

    Dalek Tat brings us a few goodies this week; a collected 100 editions of the Australian fanzine Data Extract, a new Doctor Who Magazine Special Edition and two classic stories - The Daleks and Survival are getting their respective soundtracks released.

    \n"Nightmare in Silver" Review\n

    We\'ve been putting this one off for ages but it\'s time to make a stand and crack on with reviewing this often beaten on 11th Doctor story. Is it a case of a re-watch giving us a different appreciation for it or does it remain as it\'s title suggests - a nightmare.

    \n

    Thank you so much guys for listening giving us your reviews and audio clips. Next week it\'s back to the classics with the 2nd Doctor story The Enemy of the World. Have a great week and remember - Allons-y!

    Hey Who fans. Welcome aboard the TARDIS for our infamous waffle, the latest news, merch and then our review of Death to the Daleks.

    \nThe News\n

    There\'s exciting news for any of our listeners who want to try their hand at writing. The Candy Jar Festival recently took place in Cardiff and they\'ve launched a competition where you can submit your short storied for a chance for them to be published! Check the deets here.

    \n

    We also say goodbye to Victor Pemberton who passed away aged 85. Victor appeared in The Moon Base and then when onto writing for Who, most notably Fury from the Deep which also introduced us to the Sonic Screwdriver.

    \nMerch Corner\n

    A few months ago we mentioned an upcoming book - Doctor Who: Tales of Terror and now it\'s getting the audio book treatment with people such as Sophie Aldred and Sir Derek Jacobi reading stories.

    \n"Death to the Daleks" Review\n

    It\'s been quite a while since we spent some time with the Third Doctor and Death to the Daleks is an interesting story. Enough here to keep us entertained or is it a case of weird ornamental flooring winning the day?

    \n

    Thank you all for listening and those who gave us their reviews. Next week it\'s the 11th Doctors turn with Nightmare in Silver, get your reviews in for that. Have a fantastic week and remember - Allons-y!

    Hey Who fans. After some interesting merch stories we\'re onto the usual news, merch and our review of The Runaway Bride.

    \nThe News\n

    Upcoming 13th Doctor Jodie Whittaker was on BBC Radio 6 recently talking about her reaction to being cast and actor Earl Cameron celebrates his 100th birthday as Who\'s oldest participant.

    \nMerch Corner\n

    The awesomely cute Dr. Men crossover will be brining us the official figurines later this year.

    \n"The Runaway Bride" Review\n

    We wondered whether doing a Christmas Special in August would feel weird but seeing as this is actually quite light on festive meriment we\'re all good. The robot Santa\'s are back, TARDIS car chase, a giant spider and plenty of Doctor-Donna action. Are we feeling this story or are we left empty, like losing a Christmas cracker?

    \n

    Hey Who fans. Normal service is resumed so we\'re into some news, merch and our review of the Hartnell story The Ark. First, a run down of our cool weekend at London Film and Comic Con...

    \nThe News\n

    One bit of news this week - apparently David Tennant is the most popular Doctor on eBay.

    \nMerch Corner\n

    Dalek Tat this week brings us a retro Audio Annual and some exclusive SDCC Titans.

    \n"The Ark" Review\n

    It feels great to be getting back into Classic Who and what better way than visiting the 1st Doctor. The Ark is a Series 3 four parter full of hilarious aliens - the Monoids, plenty of scheming and a belter of a cliffhanger. We like this one or is it like watching it with one eye?

    \n

    Thank you for listening you lot, it\'s been awesome getting back into it. Next week it\'s Donna\'s first story The Runaway Bride. Until then have a great week and remember - Allons-y!

    Hey Who fans. Well that\'s it, Series 10 has been and gone and it\'s time to review the finale - The Doctor Falls but first...

    \nThe News\n

    No big news other than ratings for World Enough and Time.

    \nMerch Corner\n

    A couple of new books are up for pre-order - Doctor Who: 100 Illustrated Adventures features fan and professional art and the obligatory Doctor Who Annual - 2018.

    \n"The Doctor Falls" Review\n

    We knew this day would come but it\'s here and we\'re not liking it. Capaldi\'s last full series episode ends with betrayal, courage, emotion and surprises but what do we think? A worthy ending to the series or does it fall flat on its face?

    \n

    Thank you so much for listening and sending us your thoughts and reviews, we appreciate it all so much! A reminder - we\'re taking a couple of weeks holiday now and we\'ll return on Friday 28th July with a special Q&A and Top 5\'s show so until then... have a great couple of weeks and remember - Allons-y!

    \nThe News\n

    Not much this week apart from some chat around ratings for The Eaters of Light.

    \nMerch Corner\n

    Dalek Tat has been busy this week and hands us a newly announce book in the Lethbridge-Stewart range, new t-shirts and hoody from Forbidden Planet(.com) and that Pop! Funko Rory/Centurion is now up for pre-order in the UK.

    \n"World Enough and Time" Review\n

    Holy moly there\'s a lot to go through with this one. Who goes dark with horror undertones in this Moffat story. Mondasian Cybermen, black holes, creepy patients and John Simm (as if you didn\'t know already!). Has The Moff redeemed himself and given us a story we know he can deliver or are we left in silence chanting "pain, pain, pain...".

    \n

    Thank you for listening as always and giving us your thoughts. The next show will be about the series 10 finale (yes, it\'s here already!) so get those reviews in. Until then have a great week and remember - Allons-y!

    We can\'t believe series 10 is almost up! Does this week\'s ep review take out mind off that? We\'ll see but first...

    \nThe News\n

    Doctor Who Adventures "pauses" publication, some Who actors have been honoured by the Queen, Delia Derbyshire gets honoured with a blue plaque and we talk the __Empress of Mars_ ratings.

    \nMerch Corner\n

Funko is coming as a SDCC exclusive, a new book, Doctor Who Tales of Horror will be out in time for Halloween, Titan announce the new Partners in Time collection and the Who/Mr. Men mashup continues with a 10th Doctor book coming this Christmas.

    \n"The Eaters of Light" Review\n

    Death by Scotland! It\'s certainly a hostile place for our Tardis Team this week but what\'s with the music? Romans, Barbarians, scary monsters and crows. Some good ingredients but is it enough for a solid story or do we feel like it\'s a bit... cold?

    Dalek Tat lets us know of a sweet deal - 6 Doctor Who Pop! Funko figures from Forbidden Planet Int and we talk about the new Draconian figure from Robert Harrop.

    \n"Empress of Mars" Review\n

    We\'ve left the Monks (Moff) trilogy behind and it\'s back to a good old fun romp with the menacing Icccccccce Warriors who have a newly awakened Empress. A solid Gatiss story or are we left feeling cold?

    \n

    Our Dalek friend failed us again this week with no new merch to speak of.

    \n\xe2\x80\x9cOxygen\xe2\x80\x9d Review\n

    Doctor Who certainly leans on the \xe2\x80\x9cAlien-esque\xe2\x80\x9d vibe at times and this episode certainly felt that way. Lots of suspense and atmosphere but did we get into it like a snug smart-suit or are we left feeling the coldness of space?

    \nMerch Corner\n

    We chuckle at the new plates and bowls from Hot Topic.

    \n\xe2\x80\x9cThe Sun Makers\xe2\x80\x9d Review\n

    We weren\xe2\x80\x99t particularly looking forward to reviewing this one based on our previous viewings but\xe2\x80\xa6 has our opinion changed on this obvious dig at the tax man and oppressive companies.

    \n\xe2\x80\x9cThe Doctor Dances\xe2\x80\x9d Review\n

    We conclude our 9th Doctor story this week. Following on from the amazing The Empty Child, does this have the same high calibre story telling and gripping direction?

    \n

    \n\xe2\x80\x9cThe Two Doctors\xe2\x80\x9d Review\n

    Multi-Doctor stories. We were spoilt by the brilliant The Five Doctors and The Three Doctors so how does this 2nd and 6th Doctor story stack up? A gripping timey-wimey story of Sontaran\xe2\x80\x99s, Androgum\xe2\x80\x99s and a quaint Spanish hacienda. Enough to keep us going or are we desperate for that afternoon siesta?

    \n

    Thank you as always for your thoughts and listening to the show. Next week we\xe2\x80\x99re reviewing the concluding story to our 9th Doctor two-parter \xe2\x80\x93 The Doctor Dances. Until then have a brill week and remember \xe2\x80\x93 Allons-y!

    Hey Who fans! A busier week with news and some cool merch items then onto our review of The Empty Child.

    \nThe News\n

    A teaser dropped for series 10 which potentially reveals some characters and titles, unfortunately actor Neil Fingleton who played The Fisher King has passed away at the age of 36 and the petition to save The Doctor Who Experience in Cardiff has surpassed 10,000 signatures.

    \n\xe2\x80\x9cThe Empty Child\xe2\x80\x9d Review\n

    Possibly one of Eccleston\xe2\x80\x99s best stories? We take a look at the creepy first part written by The Moff. Great writing, superb direction and design but does it float out boat or leave us running for the air raid shelter?

    \n

    Thank you all for joining us once again and your reviews. Next week we\xe2\x80\x99re looking at the Colin Baker story \xe2\x80\x93 The Two Doctors, your thoughts on this will be great. Until then have a fantastic week and remember \xe2\x80\x93 Allons-y!

    \nThe News\n

    No news this week.

    \nMerch Corner\n

    One of the first spin-off movies, Wartime Chronicles, is getting a re-release with a couple of extra features. Worth a look if you\xe2\x80\x99re a Sgt. Benton fan.

    \n

    We talk through the recently announced statues coming our way from Robert Harrop this year.

    \n\xe2\x80\x9cThe Dominators\xe2\x80\x9d Review\n

    A five parter 2nd Doctor story to kick off Troughton\xe2\x80\x99s second series. Often viewed as slow and light on actual story can we get into it or are we plodding around an island looking for Quarks?

    \n

    Thank you all for listening and subscribing. Next week it\xe2\x80\x99s the turn of the 9th Doctor as we look into the first of a two-parter: The Empty Child. Until then have an awesome week and remember \xe2\x80\x93 Allons-y!

    \n

    Our website has had a makeover which we\xe2\x80\x99re very pleased with. If you find any bugs or Cybermats anywhere please let us know. Oh, and grab yourself a t-shirt or mug from the shop :)

    \nThe News\n

    To celebrate the 80th anniversary year of pioneering music maker Delia Derbyshire, a bunch of musical projects will take place throughout the year funded by the National Heritage Fund. You can find the details over at the website.

    \n

    We talk through the final confirmed ratings for Class and it\xe2\x80\x99s potential for a second series.

    \nMerch Corner\n

    Three new novellas will be released this year to accompany the Lethbridge-Stewart range starting with The Life of Evans in March plus some chat around Big Finish\xe2\x80\x99s recent announcement of chronicle stories for the 9th, 10th and 11th Doctors.

    \n\xe2\x80\x9cInto the Dalek\xe2\x80\x9d Review\n

    Ah Rusty, you had the potential for so much good but as it turns out, the Doctor maybe has as much hate issues. We\xe2\x80\x99re big fans of the 9th Doctor story Dalek so can this similar themed 12th Doctor story win us over?

    \n

    Thank you so much for your continued support and being our wonderful listeners. Next week we\xe2\x80\x99re reviewing the classic 2nd Doctor story The Dominators so get your reviews in for that. Until then have an awesome week and remember \xe2\x80\x93 Allons-y!

    Hey Who fans! More cheerful news this week then onto our review of the 5th Doctor story Time-Flight.

    \nThe News\n

    The Ice Warriors are coming back for series 10.

    \n

    Series 11 is to be broadcast next Autumn with filming due to start early next year. That does mean that with the exception of the Christmas Special this year, we\xe2\x80\x99re in for another year at least hiatus.

    \n

    Missy is back for Series 10. You probably guessed that as the Moff is still showrunner.

    \nMerch Corner\n

    Fancy a cool crystal TARDIS? Head over to www.doctorwhocyrstals.com to take a look. There\xe2\x80\x99s also a Capaldi version.

    \n\xe2\x80\x9cTime-Flight\xe2\x80\x9d Review\n

    Possibly one of the most frowned upon stories from Davison\xe2\x80\x99s era and possibly all of classic Who. How do we feel about this one with it\xe2\x80\x99s Heathrow setting, sideways TARDIS and PS5 budget? One of us isn\xe2\x80\x99t a fan, the other one surprisingly is.

    \n

    Thank you for listening and sending in reviews. Next week we\xe2\x80\x99re looking at the Capaldi story Into the Dalek. Look out for the FB post on Monday and get your reviews in. Until then have an awesome week and remember \xe2\x80\x93 Allons-y!

    Hey Who fans! We have some very sad news on all counts this week, a single piece of merch then onto our review of Night Terrors.

    \nThe News\n

    It\xe2\x80\x99s with great sadness that we say goodbye to Sir John Hurt who passed away aged 77. As Who fans we knew him as the War Doctor but he had a wonderful career playing some wonderful roles over the years, namely The Elephant Man, Kane (and the awesome/horrific chest busting scene) in Alien and Mr Olivander in Harry Potter. Good bye old bean.

    \n

    Big Finish has picked up a BBC Drama Award! The award for Best Online/non Broadcast Drama was for Absent Friends, part one from Doom Coalition 3 boxset. Well done indeed!

    \n

    More sad news, Peter Capaldi has announced his departure from Who in an emotional interview with Jo Whiley on her BBC Radio 2 show. As you can imagine, we have quite a few words to say about this.

    \nMerch Corner\n

    Cosplay clothing site Abbyshot have put the new 12th Doctor Red Velvet Coat up for pre-order. Looks great on Peter Capaldi, maybe you too?

    \n\xe2\x80\x9cNight Terrors\xe2\x80\x9d Review\n

    As big fans of Matt Smith\xe2\x80\x99s Doctor we were both looking forward to reviewing one of his stories but, it\xe2\x80\x99s one we\xe2\x80\x99ve not seen in ages and throws opinions down the middle. Suitably creeped out or feeling sleepy?

    \n

    Thank you for as always for listening and getting in touch. Next week, for classic week, we\xe2\x80\x99re looking at The 5th Doctor story Time-Flight. Until then have an awesome week and remember \xe2\x80\x93 Allons-y!

    Episode 126 is here and it\xe2\x80\x99s full of Doctor Who goodness starting with the news\xe2\x80\xa6

    \nThe News\n

    Unfortunately we say goodbye to a couple of people; Rodney Bennett passed away aged 81, Rodney directed ten classic stories, namely the awesome The Ark in Space. Philip Bond also passed away aged 81, he played Ganatus in the first five episodes of the Hartnell story The Daleks.

    \n

    More fan submissions needed! This time for the upcoming book Time Shadows 2 which, like the first edition, is raising money for charity. They are looking for submissions for their short story anthology released by Psuedoscope Publishing. You can check the details here.

    \nMerch Corner\n

    We talk through the upcoming releases from Character for 2017 including new figures, sonic\xe2\x80\x99s, journals and, believe it or not, a stretchy Cyberman!

    \n\xe2\x80\x9cThe Curse of Peladon\xe2\x80\x9d Review\n

    It\xe2\x80\x99s felt like ages since we reviewed a Pertwee story so it\xe2\x80\x99s great to be talking through \xe2\x80\x9cCurse\xe2\x80\x9d (we\xe2\x80\x99ll leave reviewing The Monster of Peladon for a while ;-)). Quirky aliens, a \xe2\x80\x9cwho dunnit\xe2\x80\x9d plot, political undertones, Venusian akido and some rather silly voices. The ingredients are all there for a great classic Who story but does it all come together or are we stranded on the cliff in the wind and rain?

    \n

    Thank you for listening and for sending in your thoughts. Next week it\xe2\x80\x99s the 11th Doctor story Night Terrors so look out for the Facebook post to give us your mini-reviews. Until then have an awesome week and remember \xe2\x80\x93 Allons-y!

    Funko have teamed up with Playmobil to bring us some quite cute looking 4th and 11th Doctor figures.

    \n\xe2\x80\x9cAn Unearthly Child\xe2\x80\x9d Review\n

    To kick off the new year proper, we\xe2\x80\x99re going back to where it all started. Where nobody knew who The Doctor was, or what the TARDIS was or meant? Where the realm of BBC sci-fi was dipping it\xe2\x80\x99s experimental toes in the water. Yes, we\xe2\x80\x99re looking at the very first episode of Doctor Who \xe2\x80\x93 An Unearthly Child.
