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.

Nov 1, 2015

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....!
