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!

What Doctor Who Did Next (The Doctor Who Show Presents: Virgin NAs and MAs)

June 17, 2018

Deemed by the guys a little too niche for a regular episode, in this Doctor Who Show Presents... Dave takes Rob on a short trip through the Virgin New Adventures (1991-1997), and to a lesser extent, the Virgin Missing Adentures (1994-1997), with a mention of the Featuring Bernice Summerfield line of books (1997-1999). A future episode will see Rob taking Dave through the BBC Eighth Doctor Adventures (1997-2005) and the BBC Past Doctor Adventures (1997-2005). Stay tuned for that in the months ahead.
