Death Comes to Time

Death Comes to Time

April 24, 2022

Our LUNGBARROW episode (back in September 2021), was very popular with our listeners as it took a story many fans were interested in, but had never read, and gave them a deep dive into the storyline along with our thoughts.

We replicate that today by looking at the 2002 audio, DEATH COMES TO TIME. A total non-canon novelty - that was even a bit weird to make at the time - we go through the plot in massive detail and, of course, give our opinions.

This feature comes after 20 minutes, or so, of news and short topics to kick proceedings off. You know the drill by now, Dear Listener. Fill your boots.

Hope you enjoy the episode! Contact us anytime, hello@theDWshow.net

TARDIS Teams Go To The Movies

TARDIS Teams Go To The Movies

March 27, 2022

We promised our March episode would be a light and frothy romp, as we placed TARDIS teams into movies. This one's a riff on our Crossovers episode from back in 2021, putting TARDIS teams into TV shows. This time around, however, it's the silver screen that beckons. Where will our darlings end up? Tune in.

Of course this is after 25 minutes, or so, of news and short topics to kick proceedings off. You know the drill by now, Dear Listener. Fill your boots.

When Dave met Chris

When Dave met Chris

March 6, 2022

Sunday, 6 March 2022 saw Christopher Eccleston make an appearance at the Supanova pop culture convention in Melbourne, Australia.

Our Dave went along and, as well as obtaining an autograph from the 9th Doctor, also sat in on his Q&A panel later in the day.

What was said? What was the day like in general? 

This is a quickly made, no-frills podcast we're making to capture the moment - and Dave's thoughts - rather than waiting for the flagship monthly podcast which doesn't drop until March 27, literally another three weeks away.

Enjoy!
