Doctor Who: The Alhambra Podcast

Episode #54 we review the Big Finish releases for the month of March 2017.

Main Range #223 Zaltys.  Fourth Doctor Adventure 6.03 Silent Scream; 8th Doctor Doom Coalition Box Set 4; Jago & Litefoot Act 1 & 2 Short Tips with the Tenth Doctor; Charlotte Pollard Volume 2; Big Finish Classic: First Men on the Moon; and Pathfinders.

We have a discussion about the changes done to Spare Parts vinyl edition, which may or may not be correct.  Tweet us and/or the show if you have any information regarding that.

I end the show with giving a nod to the return of Mystery Science Theater 3000 series on Netflix (which I watched instead of listening to "The Silent Scream").

Episode 53 of the Doctor Who: Alhambra Podcast reviews "The Pilot," episode 1 of series 10 of the new series of Doctor Who.  

Throughout the review of "The Pilot" we drift on and off topic about Capaldi's regeneration, The Tenth Planet Cybermen, The First Doctor Companion Chronicle story with Steven Taylor "The Locked Room." 

I discuss the beautiful horror aspect of this episode, making the sound of unexpected running water scary.

Stay tuned for our next episode, #54, in which we review March 2017 Big Finish Doctor Who, DW Spin-Offs, and other audios.

The Doctor Who: Alhambra Podcast is very fortunate to have Louise Jameson on the podcast for about an hours time.

We talk to her about acting, her time on Doctor Who in the 70's, her work as an actor, writer and director with Big Finish.  Some of the people she worked with, such as Virginia Hey (4th Doctor Adventures: White Ghosts; Farscape) and Sir John Hurt (The War Doctor - Series 4: Casualties of War).  Her time with Tom Baker in the 70's and some cast spoilers but no story line spoilers for a future Fourth Doctor Adventure featuring the Doctor and Leela.

We had a great time, and are very thankful for the time Louise Jameson took out of her busy schedule to appear on our podcast.

Episode 50 of the Doctor Who: Alhambra Podcast was suppose to be our half-centennial celebration, however due to time constraints and one podcaster under the weather, we'll get to that special in a future podcast.

Episode 48 of the Doctor Who Alhambra Podcast, first official one with the new logo!

In this episode of the podcast, we get to hear how Liam (@djNezumi) is getting older, the River Song audios have given us a change of opinion, Brett (@Mavic_Chen) might have an unhealthy fixation on the Great British Bake-Off.  On the bright side, he no longer is rooting for Flip, the 6th Doctor's companion, to die.  Near the end of the podcast, Liam begins to whisper talk, perhaps he's baby sitting Legeon's new offspring.

Many of the news items we find off the amazing website: doctorwhonews.net.  We talk about the new Fantom Publishing: Who Talks, An Unearthly Child and Cyber 60s.  Doctor Who spin-off: CLASS will begin airing on BBC One, while those in the states get to wait until April.  We discuss the World Cup of Doctor Who Christmas Specials done Christmas day by @DoctorF0ever, Liam and I both disagree with many results (hostage of the moment reactions). 

Big Finish titles and writers for the 6th series of the Fourth Doctor Adventures, Fourth Doctor Boxed sets for series 7, the box sets announcement for UNIT, Counter-Measures, 4th Doctor and Survivors.  The possibilities of Big Finish's main range being boxed sets.

Reviews for December 2016:

MR #219 Absolute Power by Jamie Anderson; MR #220 Quicksilver by Matt Fitton. Both featuring Colin Baker and Miranda Raison, as the Doctor and Constance Clarke.  The Early Adventures #3.3 The Ravelli Conspiracy (revisited); #3.4 The Sontarans.  The Novel Adapations #10 Original Sin and #11 Cold Fusion.  Doctor Who Spin-Off Counter-Measures #6 series 1 of the New Series. Non-Doctor Who releases Dan Dare volume 1 and Dark Shadows - Haunting Memories.

In this episode of The Doctor Who: Alhambra Podcast, Brett takes a quick look at the colourized and black & white of episode 6 and final episode in the animated classic Power of the Daleks, while looking at the Telesnaps from DWM SE #35.  The 3D colourized Daleks go from being OK at times, but there are some issues.  However, at the end of the day, we finally have Patrick Troughton's first story, Doctor Who's first regeneration story back in a visual format.

Episode 46 of the Doctor Who: Alhambra Podcast focuses on the classic Doctor Who story (#102) The Power of Kroll.

The Power of Kroll by Robert Holmes

The 5th story of season 16 of Doctor Who, which was actually suppose to be the 4th story in the Key to Time, until it was swapped with The Androids of Tara.  

The Power of Kroll was the second story written by Robert Holmes in the Key to Time series, (The Ribos Operation being the first story Robert Holmes wrote).  Writer Ted Lewis was unable to complete the story he was working on called Shield of Zarak.

The Time Warrior (to be recorded in December) 

Please stay tuned for those releases, and further releases when we focus merely on the strength of the story and storytelling, and ignore the visuals.
