Doctor Who: The Alhambra Podcast

The Doctor Who Alhambra Podcast: discussing, debating Doctor Who, science fiction and fantasy series. We react to Doctor Who and Big Finish productions, on-line forums. Also, we'll occasional focus on audio of classic Doctor Who stories, ignoring the special effects, to find out if the story is as strong or as weak as fans believe it to be.

Jan 18, 2016

In episode 32, we begin with Doctor Who News, discussing the news that was revealed at Big Finish Day 8 with more Blake's 7, War Doctor Box set 4 with Leela.

Starting with the month of January, we have some clips from Main Range 195 Mistfall, by Andrew Smith (writer of the classic story Full Circle). We gave some thoughts about the 4th Doctor getting an new companion that was not on the classic series (like the 6th Doctor).  We speculate on the Big Finish Novel Adaptation #11 being Lungbarrow as we review The Romance of Crime and The English Way of Death. I talk about my love of Film Noir detective radio shows, and why I appreciate The Avengers.  Liam explains to me the how Dark Shadows: Bloodlust works and thoughts on that range. Liam also continues to work on me to give Rise of the Runelords a listen, explaining and educating me on legends and D&D mythology. We continue on with the year's review looking at Main Range 196 release, Equilibrium, by Matt Litton.

Liam gets after me (rightly so too), because I have not watched/listened to Blake's 7, Pathfinders, and then Gallifrey series, because my jumping on point was Gallifrey 7: Intervention Earth, due to reviews that I read told me it's a good jumping on point. We then look at the final episode of the 5th Doctor E-Space Trilogy, The Entropy Plague, by Jonathan Morris.  I go on about how great Requiem for the Rocket Men, by John Dorney, and the greatness of the Rocket Men trilogy using clips to try to prove my point.  Discuss Dark Eyes series 4 and the downfalls of this range compared to the greatness of Doom Coalition range. 

I share a few clips and share my love for the Novel Adaptation The Well-Mannered War by Gareth Roberts. We also discuss the possibilities of if the unresolved ending to the Well-Mannered War will get resolved in Series 5 of The 4th Doctor Adventures.

Episode 32 includes all the Big Finish titles either Brett or Liam has listened to and reviewed from January 2015 through April 2015.  Please stay tuned for Episode 33, which will include Big Finish reviews of titles from May 2015 through December 2015.
