A Doctor Who podcast hosted by Mark and Rob, were we chat about the show, and leave the reviews and DVD commentaries to everyone else!
42 to Doomsday - FANtastic Creators
Episode 89 - We are back with a New Year's day special, albeit one with a difference! In this episode we debut our FANtastic creators segment where we shine the spotlight on some of the many talented people in Doctor Who fandom. We are delighted that our first guest is sculpture extraordinaire Millie McKenzie.
We discuss how she became a fan of the program and what inspires her to create her wonderful creations as well as the process involved.
Millie can be found on Twitter @CowBearCreates and Instagram @cowbearcreations

42 to Doomsday - Staff Xmas Party - The Sixth Sense(less)
Episode 88 - The Doomsday Weapon(s) are back! Rob and Mark are again joined by friends of the podcast, Dave and Richard, for our anticipated (and much loved) Xmas special!
Your Xmas stockings will overflow as we discuss the Doctor Who stories we watched during lockdown and obsess over our Top 3 Doctor Who stories featuring plagues. Then we journey back in time for our Target Book Club where we chat about novelisations of historical stories.
No 42 to Doomsday Xmas special would be complete without our Annual Fanwank of the Year award...what has set off snarky Marky this time. and for the first time in six years, will Big Finish lose the crown of biggest Fanwankers?
Apologies for the sub-optimal sound quality hopefully it doesn't spoil your enjoyment!
42 to Doomsday - Should've Been Another Way?
Episode 87 - It's another 'What If' episode, this time looking at what could have been for Season 23! Which previous Doctor would we have chosen to appear in the Past segment of Trial of a Time Lord? Did the umbrella theme actually work. And gasp as we ponder what exactly is a 'reverse Samson'?
All this plus a yet another bulging sack of listeners emails, plus we have a special treat as Mark embraces the blasphemous animations as we hear his thoughts on the resurrected Fury from the Deep...plus, listen in to Rob's emotional tribute to those Victorian's who have chosen to vacate the state post lockdown!
42 to Doomsday - Remember When
Episode 86 - In the first of a new and (hopefully) semi-regular segment we talk to ex-Grumpcaster and occasional Something Whoer Mike (aka Servo Robot) on his early memories of watching the programme. What was it like to live through Dalekmania? Is Wheel in Space any good? How exciting was it to watch Invasion of the Dinosaurs episode 1 (in full colour)? and why is Mike cursed to have seen The Space Pirates not once, but twice!!
Mike shares his research on Doctor Who transmissions in Australia, in particular new information about how remote mining companies got to see TV in the early 70’s. And finally, riddle me this - how can a Doctor Who story with only one print be shown on the same day across three different time zones (*cough Duplicate Prints cough*)
And what treasures could exist in the store...Bond store!
42 to Doomsday - What If?
Episode 85 - With our 'normal' reality in lockdown and frankly a bit pants, Rob and Mark go all Sliders (the TV show not the small burgers) and use our fanwank powers to discuss many ‘what if’ scenarios about Doctor Who as suggested by you our wonderful listeners!!!
What if Ray Cusick hadn't designed the Daleks? What if Zoe had stayed on for Season 7? How about Mary Tamm as the 5th Doctor? What does the tv landscape look like if The Dark Dimension is made? And was Pigbin Josh the Watcher all along?
All this, plus recommendations on 'family friendly' comedy films of the 1980's, the length of Rob's new 'rocking' lockdown mullet and will Mark's latest attempts at 'humour' finally make the Indiana Jones of film collecting hand over some 'artefacts'? (hot tip - no!)
42 to Doomsday - The Cannonball(s-up) Run
Episode 84 - Unlimited Doctors? More like unlimited Rice Pudding! The Timeless Children certainly set the the internet and fandom alight with its wholesale changes to Who canon. Rob, Mark and special guest Rob Lloyd try to unpack their feelings about the Series 12 finale and explore why changes to our beloved Who canon are met with resistance.
Are there common threads/themes with other sci-fi franchises to be found?
All this plus heaps of listener feedback mail, more ideas for Happy Finish productions and we ask the big question - would the world's most forthright Doctor Who Missing Episode hunters unite to help out the unemployed??

This Podcast is really great because you are presented with an Australian flavoured view of Doctor Who. Keep up the good work guys !
Great to finally have a podcast that is engaging and just enjoys Doctor Who, but is willing to cast a critical eye when mentioned.
The creators' conversational manner is really good, and nice to know someone else thinks Invasion of the Dinosaurs is a great story.
looking fwd to the next one.
I've just listened to the "Let's Chat About Matt" cast, and loved it - once again, willing to praise when needed and criticise when warranted. A refreshing style of DW podcast!
Great to see another local podcast!
I found these guys via the Capaldi 'cast and have now downloaded the others. Nice to hear an actual conversation as opposed to constant reviews and in-jokes. Subscribed - hope there's another one coming soon!
