The Doctor Who Show S03 E06 – Season 5 and fan opinion

June 24, 2018

The fifth season of Doctor Who began on 2 September 1967 with The Tomb of the Cybermen and ended on 1 June 1968 with The Wheel in Space. Only 22 out of 40 episodes are held in the BBC archives; 18 remain missing. As result only 2 serials exist entirely.

Rob and Dave discuss each episode of Season 5 briefly, examine fan opinion past and present, and also ponder if each story is a "base under siege" adventure, as fan theories suggest.

Of course they also rip into some current Doctor Who news and events beforehand and hope you enjoy the episode!

The Doctor Who Show S03 E05 – Queer Who

May 27, 2018

The third series of The Doctor Who Show continues with Rob and Dave discussing the very broad topic of how queerness has related to Doctor Who over the years.

Over the past month, on a variety of platforms they've asked listeners, what does that mean to you? Does Doctor Who have a disproportionately gay following? If so, why? And who are the LGBT characters (implicit or implied!) you’ve loved the most? Are there any you disliked?

Before taking on those questions - and a lot more - they do a quick whip around some recent Doctor Who news as well as what’s happening in their own fandom at present.

Hear about 500 episodes of classic Who coming to Twitch TV! Learn more about the upcoming James Godd novel, Doctor Who Meets Scratchman! How much did the first Doctor Who script recently sell for? And vale to Graham Strong, one of the most unsung, but important, figures in Doctor Who fandom. Plus a whole lot more!

Rob and Dave Unplugged (The DW Show Presents: Fandom in the 80s, 90s and Beyond)

March 11, 2018

January 27, 2018 saw a lot of firsts... it was the first time Rob met Dave in person; the first time the guys recorded an episode of their show in person; the first time Rob had ever recorded a podcast with ANYONE else in the room; the first time they recorded with the guys from the New to Who podcast (see our February 25 episode); the first time Rob had met any of the Flight Through Entirety podcast team... and so on. You get the idea.

Anyway, at some stage on that very busy day, amid recording an episode of the Doctor Who Show and an episode of New to Who, Rob and Dave found time to crack out a single microphone, mount it on a table, and have a conversation about Doctor Who fandom in Australia. Basically how they came into it; what it was like; conventions, and more. They end up moving through the topic and even onto talking about the modern era of fandom that they now no longer feel a major part of, but are extremely supportive of.

Very personal... a little indulgent... and the sound quality isn't quite where the Doctor Who Show normally pitches, but if you're at all interested in our back stories, or Doctor Who fandom in Australia in the 80s and 90s in particular, this could be a very interesting episode for you to hear.
