The Key to Time (Season 16)

April 26, 2020

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…)

The Podcast of Decision III (The DW Show Presents…)

April 12, 2020

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.
