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.

Episode 37 of the Doctor Who: Alhambra Podcast

In this episode of the Alhambra Podcast, the trio of Brett (@Mavic_Chen) and Liam (@djNezumi) and Legeon (@legeonhenderson) reunite and bring an enjoyable hour (or more) discussion and sci-fi silliness for the month of May 2016.

We started off the podcast with Doctor Who and Big Finish news, thanks to for the up to date DW news! We discuss the news of Big Finish releasing the first full cast audio for Torchwood.  Briefly discuss of the Dark Shadow's 50th Anniversary release. Then we discuss the work of Fantom Films work with previous audio commentaries, The Web of Fear and Enemy of the World, and what they have in store for Doctor Who commentaries on some orphaned episodes.  From one Romana story to another, we discuss Gallifrey: Enemy Lines - Series 8, written by David Llewellyn, and how this one story possibly undoes Intervention Earth from series 7.  Going from one Doctor Who spin-off to another, we look at episode #2.3, Torchwood: Ghost Mission, written by James Goss, featuring Tom Prince as Sergeant Andy Davidson.  Form current releases, we look back at the Cyberman series 1 and 2, as Big Finish has released them in one big box set.  As great as a series as Cyberman is, Liam and Brett do discuss a downer regarding this re-released boxed set.


A BIG thanks to Big Finish for the updated Big Finish app!  It is user friendly, and just amazing!  Between that and Brett finding the Fantom Film audio commentaries for Web of Fear and Enemy of the World, Brett needed some time alone. :)


We change our minds for the audio only release for the month of June, from The Daemons (3rd Doctor Classic Series) to fit in with the Fourth Doctor Adventure release for the month of June, The Trouble with Drax, to the last story in The Key to Time series, The Armageddon Factor (4th Doctor Classic Series).


Audio Only Review list - Spearhead from Space (recorded, post-production needed); The Web Planet (recorded in the month of June); The Armageddon Factor (recorded for June, sometime in June or July); Dragonfire (to be recorded in July); The Power of Kroll (to be recorded in August); finally The Daemons (to be recorded in September).  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.
