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.

Feb 23, 2016

In today's podcast, Liam and I look into some of the new Big Finish and Doctor Who news, before we move onto the the reviews for the month of February 2016.

With our reviews, we first look at the Big Finish Main Range release #209, Aquitaine, written by Simon Barnard & Paul Morris (clips from the story to highlight our discussion. Followed by the Fourth Doctor Adventure release #5.02, The Labyrinth of Buda Castle.  Big Finish continues to hit the mark for the month of February with the Short Trips adventure, #6.01, Garden of the Dead, featuring Mark Strickson as Turlough and the narrator.  This adventure slots perfectly in between Mawdryn Undead and Terminus. 

Next, we look at the Doctor Who Spin offs, looking at the last episode of the first season of Torchwood, episode #1.06, More Than This, written by Guy Adams.  Following that with the series 3 box set of Vienna, featuring the lovely Chase Masterson.  If you have not experience the spin-off series Vienna, this (and Vienna herself) is one to get to know better!

We finish off the podcast by reviewing the audio book, Carnacki - The Ghost Finder.  Give this audio a try, as it's narrated by everyones favorite Sontaran actor, Dan Starkey. As of the time of this podcast, the first Carancki - The Ghost Finder: The Gateway of the Monster, is free to download.
