    354: Doctor Who: Nikola Tesla's Night of Terror Reviewed

    What did you think of Nikola Tesla's Night of Terror? Hold that thought, then ask yourself the more important question: what did *we* think of Nikola Tesla's Night of Terror? Doctor Who Series 12 has been a mixed bag so far, but was Nikola Tesla's Night of Terror the fizzy cola bottle or the unfizzy cola bottle?
    It's the PodKast with a K, in which forty-something male, pale, and stale anoraks chat largely about Doctor Who, a show they've no professional experience of but have nevertheless spent a large chunk of four decades watching.
    This week, Christian Cawley (a man who plays with phones for money) is joined by the ever-indecisive James McLean and swish trans-Atlantic man-about-suburbs Brian A. Terranova. We're here to reaffirm and challenge your opinions on Doctor Who in equal measure.

    353: Doctor Who: Orphan 55 Reviewed (and Recovery)

    353: Doctor Who: Orphan 55 Reviewed (and Recovery)

    Orphan 55 is arguably the most divisive Doctor Who episode since 2005 - if not longer.
    But was it really all that bad? Is there something of value to take from the episode that split fandom and demonstrated makeup that would look amateurish on a 1990s CBBC production of A Midsomer Night's Dream?
    Brian A. Terranova and James McLean are on hand to find out.

    350: Doctor Who Commentary Special: Feast of Steven CGI Remakes

    350: Doctor Who Commentary Special: Feast of Steven CGI Remakes

    The first Doctor Who episode to air on Christmas Day was back in 1965, smack bang in the middle of The Daleks' Master Plan. A curio that most fans haven't seen, the episode exists only as an audio adventure from off air tapes.
    Or does it?
    Aside from a Peter Purves/Jean Marsh two-hander, alongside the original novelisation, various fan-made productions have been mounted. From telesnap archives to CGI recreations, fans have a wealth of options that while interesting, never quite capture the magic of a real episode. However, these projects are interesting in their own right.
    In this week's special Christmas podKast, Christian Cawley and James McLean watch two CGI remakes of The Daleks' Master Plan simultaneously. We'd like you to watch along with us, so use these two YouTube videos. First up is The Feast of Steven (Animated):

    At the same time, we watched Feast of Steven via the lens of WhoRecons' animated CGI econstruction

    What more can we say? Hit play, enjoy, and Merry Christmas!

Yes…No…I Don’t Know

Rarely agree with a word they say, but likeable trio of Doctor Who fans who give an interesting angle on the latest episodes. James “Yes, No, I Don’t Know” McLean fights his inner turmoil in an ongoing saga that can never have a good ending.
