Doctor Who: The Alhambra Podcast

On this episode of The Doctor Who: Alhambra Podcast, we focus on the audio only on Time and the Rani to see if the story holds up on its own without the visuals.  Or this classic Doctor Who story is rightly slotted as one of the worse episodes to hit the television screens (Ranked 158 in DWM poll of 163 total episodes in 2003; Ranked 198 in DWM poll of 200 in 2009; Ranked 239 in DWM poll of 241 in 2014).

In we do pull some audio from the Cast and Crew commentary from the 2Entertain DVD "Time and the Rani" as well the documentary "Last Chance Saloon," found on the special features of the DVD.  We also pull excerpts from Big Finish's recent "The Sixth Doctor: Last Adventure" along with a special piece from an audio play written by Nev Fountain for Big Finish (I'd tell you what it is, but I'd rather you listen to the podcast and see if you think similarly to me regarding Pip and Jane Baker). 

Please stay tuned for our next podcast, when we review Big Finish and New Doctor Who stories for the month of November.  

Our next Audio Edition Review will be Spearhead from Space.  Please listen to the story, and send us a tweet or an email about your audio only experience.

Episode of 28 of the Doctor Who Alhambra Podcast starts out with a teaser of Liam's Barnaby Edward interview conducted during this year's Whooverville.  Although we tease that at the beginning of the show, stay tuned during the podcast to hear portions of that interview interwoven throughout this podcast.

a brief discussion of the news regarding David Tennant and Catherine Tate reprising their roles as the 10th Doctor and Donna Noble for Big Finish starting in May 2016.  

Once we get on with the podcast, we start out with looking at Big Finish's main range review of release #205, Planet of the Rani, featuring the 6th Doctor and Constance Clark. Followed by Doctor Who: Doom Coalition Box Set 1, featuring the 8th Doctor and Liv Chenka. From there we look at Early Adventures of Doctor Who: The Forsaken.  We take a brief look at Jago and Litefoot series 10 and Torchwood: Fall to Earth (1.2), and a few thoughts on Pathfinders Legends: Empty Graves (2.2). 

Next we look at some of the New Doctor Who series, featuring Peter Capaldi as the 12th Doctor.  Again, skim through Magician's Apprentice, Witch's Familiar before moving onto Under the Lake and Before the Flood (we are holding off critical reviews of these two stories until we watch them back-to-back, to see if doing so makes a difference in enjoyment).  We finish off with another quick review of The Girl Who Died and The Woman Who Lived, before taking a moment to brief critic (not criticize Steven Moffat). 

Stay tuned all the way to the end to hear the final part of the Whooverville interview with Barnaby Edwards.  He gives Liam some great introspect into Big Finish and the New Doctor Who stuff (Churchill, Classic Doctor New Monsters). How the Meddling Monk got back into the series, and more....!

Our next Audio Edition Review will be The Time and the Rani.  Please listen to the story, and send us a tweet or an email about your audio only experience.
