    Episode 101 - Utopia

    Episode 101 - Utopia

    Episode 100 - Survival

    Episode 100 - Survival

    It's our hundredth episode and in celebration we have been briefly removed from our own time-streams to go old school and dawdle ineffectually around Survival from the olden days of 1989.
     
    On at least one occasion John says Rhona Cameron instead of Rona Munro, and he could not be more mortified. Sorry.
     
    Please read all of John Wyndham's work with the possible exception of the posthumously published Plan For Chaos.
     
    Peter Strickland's four films Katalin Varga, Berberian Sound Studio, The Duke Of Burgundy and In Fabric are all exquisite, but they aren't for everyone.
     
    Restraint Of Beasts by Magnus Mills is a morbidly brilliant book. Highly recommended.
     
     
    This is the US Doctors thing we were nattering on about. You'll have seen it ages ago.

    Episode 099 - Blink

    Episode 099 - Blink

    A commentary for the series 3 episode Blink, after the usual protracted preamble.
    The book John likes is Riddley Walker by Russell Hoban, available from all good and wicked bookshops. We like the ones who pay their taxes best.

    The brilliant book podcast that has recently covered Riddley Walker is the Backlisted Podcast:
    https://www.backlisted.fm/episodes/9-russell-hoban-riddley-walker
    Una McCormack is in it, and she's one of us.
     
    Lawrence's recommended time travel books are the Lightbringer Trilogy:
    https://www.fantasticfiction.com/l/samantha-lee/lightbringer-trilogy/
     
    The film John chunters on about is Christopher Smith's excellent horror movie Triangle:
     https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/1212111_triangle
     And the film in Smith's oeuvre that John can't quite bring to mind is the excellently silly horror comedy Severance.

Terribly good

My favourite Doctor Who podcast; in equal parts charming, witty and erudite.

Whoniversal Fun

Cracking DW reviews/commentaries from the new series , with the odd discussion episode in between . Full of all the usual DW facts , but delivered in a fun , sometimes meandering , manner . Great stuff .
