“Which Who was Here?” Introducing a catchily-titled new feature

Introducing an experimental new feature, in which James accidentally visits a filming location from a past Doctor Who episode, and he quizzes Paul on the episode in question. Which Who was here? Why was he here? Which episode was it? Was it a good episode? All this, and more, will be revealed in this week’s podcast…

Spiders! Brutalism! Sheffield! James and Paul review Arachnids in the UK, introduce a couple of ridiculous new features, and accidentally sing a 90s hit which is at best tangentially related to the episode.

Paul and James review Rosa in the beautiful surrounds of London’s Royal Festival Hall.

The TARDIS sends our nascent Scooby Gang back to 1955 Alabama, where we meet Rosa Parkes, Martin Luther King, a lot of sweaty-faced racists, and what can only be described as a member of the alt-right, but from the future.

Crashing spaceships, Moomin Beans and Art Malik in a tent for some reason: James and Paul weigh up the second Thirteenth Doctor adventure, The Ghost Monument, where we see Graham in some natty sunglasses, Yas not given an awful lot to do, and the joys of seeing a new TARDIS interior for the first time.

Ace Doctor Who Podcast #1: The Woman Who Fell To Earth

We finally got together to get this new show on the road!

What did Paul and James make of the first episode of the Chibnall / Whittaker era? Do they have any idea who Bradley Walsh is? And will they ever get around to discussing the plot?

A new era begins!

It’s approximately 40 hours since The Woman Who Fell To Earth aired on BBC1 and I’m waiting in a cafe in Soho waiting to record the first edition of our new podcast.

Recording podcasts is just like riding a bike – you crash repeatedly due to your dyspraxia, throw your metal steed off a cliff in frustration, and accidentally find a humming alien pod while trying to fish it out of a tree.

At least, that’s what we’re hoping.

Since we said farewell to our last podcast, Doctor Who has been regenerating under a new showrunner while we humans continue to age and develop irrational prejudices.

I can’t speak for my fellow podcaster, but I’ve tried very hard to not learn any titbits of information about the new show.

I want to go into it with an absolutely open mind and to be completely surprised and angered by any unexpected plot twists, or outrageous changes, like I don’t know, the Doctor now only communicates in rhyme or one of the doctor’s new companions is played by Jim Davidson.

Taking anti-research into new and aggressive territories, I haven’t even seen Chris Chibnall’s Broadchurch series, or any of Jodie Whittaker’s previous work, such as, ahem, Chris Chibnall’s Broadchurch series.

I have seen the Cyberwoman episode of Torchwood, though. Eeeeeesh.
