Pure bliss!

As a Dr Who fan, I can’t recommend this podcast enough. It is a source of great information, but more than that is accessible and fun. Joe is a brilliant host and his guests all share his passion and love for the programme. He is very funny and naughty and it is seriously a joy to listen to each episode. They always cheer me up, make me laugh and in some instances, reconsider my thinking about certain stories and episodes. Thoroughly recommended.

Informative, packed with trivia and darn good fun

A Doctor Who watchalong podcast that's lots of fun. Joe has many varied guests and together share not only their passion for Who, but also their knowledge, experience and memories of the greatest show in the galaxy. It's a great format and gives us a chance to maybe relook at stories we might have dismissed in the past. A must listen for any DW fan
