The Doctor Who Show S02 E11 – Talking about regeneration

November 26, 2017

Hello! With a regeneration looming in December, Rob and Dave return here in our November 2017 episode to discuss each and every regeneration in Classic and Nu Who.

But before they do, there's a ton of news to work through. Some relating to Series 11 (potential spoilers) and some relating to Classic Who - like the new Five Doctors CD.

Dave's also watched The Dominators and gives some thoughts, while Rob responds to his Frontios challenge and, for bonus points, also watched The Green Death this month.

Feedback arrives for our Babylon 5 episode of 'Alternate Galaxies' (have you listened to that one yet?) and the guys skip through what else they're currently watching on TV.

Alternate Galaxies: Babylon 5

November 5, 2017

Rob and Dave have decided to occasionally take a look at great TV series and movies they enjoy, broadly from the genres of sci-fi and fantasy.

Not only will they look at them from all the usual angles you’d expect, but also what the broad appeal to a Doctor Who fan might be.

In this second episode, Babylon 5.

Babylon 5 is an American science fiction television series created by writer and producer J. Michael Straczynski. After the successful airing of a test pilot movie on February 22, 1993, Babylon 5: The Gathering, in May 1993 Warner Brothers commissioned the series for production as part of its Prime Time Entertainment Network (PTEN).

The first season premiered in the US on January 26, 1994, and the series ultimately ran for the intended five seasons. Describing it as having "always been conceived as, fundamentally, a five year story, a novel for television", Straczynski wrote 92 of the 110 episodes, and served as executive producer, along with Douglas Netter.

Set between the years 2257 and 2262, it depicts a future where Earth has sovereign states, and a unifying Earth government. Colonies within the solar system, and beyond, make up the Earth Alliance, and contact has been made with other spacefaring species.

The ensemble cast portray alien ambassadorial staff and humans assigned to the five mile-long Babylon 5 space station, a center for trade and diplomacy. Described as "one of the most complex programs on television", the various story arcs drew upon the prophesies, religious zealotry, racial tensions, social pressures, and political rivalries which existed within each of their cultures, to create a contextual framework for the motivations and consequences of the protagonists' actions.

With a strong emphasis on character development set against a backdrop of conflicting ideologies on multiple levels, Straczynski wanted "to take an adult approach to SF, and attempt to do for television SF what Hill Street Blues did for cop shows."

Child Out of Time (The Doctor Who Show Presents: Hayden Gribble)

October 15, 2017

It brings me great delight to say that friend of the show (and podcaster in his own right), Hayden Gribble, has penned a book, which is coming out on the 16th of this month. Pretty much around the time you'll hear this episode.

That book is called Child Out Of Time, a memoir of sorts, about a Doctor Who fan growing up in the Wilderness years of the series.

With a cover by Doctor Who author Paul Magrs and a foreword by Andrew 'Full Circle' Smith, this really is a neat thing.

So, to do my part in letting everyone know the book's out - find it at Amazon, folks - I've gone back to the Doctor Who Show episode #2 (from February, 2016).

Why? Because I had Hayden on that episode. You see, Hayden's always fascinated me from the point of view that in Who fandom we have a bunch of people who watched the classic era and most of us have continued to enjoy Nu-Who. Or they're people who started with Nu-Who and some might have gone back to the classics, but I'd wager most haven't, even if they appreciate the history and gravitas it gives the new material.

But Hayden's different. He didn't see the Classic Era on its first run, but then became a fan in the wilderness years, thanks initially to the TV Movie, so was primed and ready to be a major fan when Nu Who started, just like a Classic era fan... but was still this young guy at the time with a different story to most.

That sort of thing's really interesting to me, so I wanted to chat with him on the show about being a younger who fan who likes the classic era, as a bit of a conversation piece.

Now, towards the end of the chat back in 2016, Hayden mentions some projects coming up and one of them was Child out of Time... so it seemed highly appropriate to dust off this tape, and give you a taste of Hayden and I chatting about his years growing up with the show which he's now expanded upon - in quite a major way - in Child out of Time.

I thought I was a bit too young for the Doctor (The Doctor Who Show Presents: Sylvester McCoy)

October 8, 2017

September 30 2017 saw Bridlington Comic Con held at The Spa, a dance hall, theatre and conference centre in Bridlington, East Riding of Yorkshire, England.

The star attraction at the con was Sylvester McCoy, who will need no introduction to our listeners.

Regular Who Wars contributor and some time Doctor Who Show contributor, The Rev (aka Andy) was MC for Sylvester's interview, and provides the audio we can listen to today.

You may find the sound quality varies at times; the perils of live recording, folks. We hope having the chance to "be in the room" (in a virtual sense), overrides any niggles with the sound.

Take it away, Andy & Sylv!
