    The Girl Who Waited

    The Girl Who Waited

    Regular listeners will know that aside from our 'hot take' episodes whenever new Doctor Who emerges, our other episodes are hardly ever based on reviewing a single story. In that way, we're probably different to many, or even most, Doctor Who podcasts out there which make single story reviews their main focus.
     
    We 'broke' this rule in September 2019 by randomly selecting The Keeper of Traken for a deep dive and we loved the experience so much, we decided to do it again sometime in the following year.
     
    Conscious that we did a Classic Who episode last time, a few weeks back we ran a Twitter poll asking listeners what they'd like to hear us do a standalone podcast on: Amy's Choice, The Long Game, The Girl Who Waited, or The Idiot's Lantern.
     
    136 votes were cast, with 35.3% asking for The Girl Who Waited.
     
    So... here we are! But some things never change and before we get to the episode itself we also rattle through some listener reviews, Doctor Who news, and short topics.
     
    And be sure to let us know what you thought of our opinion on the story, so we can read you out, next time.

    The Doctor Who Show S05 E06 – Companions that span Doctors

    The Doctor Who Show S05 E06 – Companions that span Doctors

    Rob and Dave take a look at all the companions who spanned across different Doctors, from the first regeneration to the most recent.
    Think: Ben and Polly, Sarah Jane Smith, Adric, Nyssa, Tegan, Peri, Mel, Rose, and Clara. There's a surprising number of them!
    How did these companions assist in the transition? Were they better with their intended/orginal Doctor, or the one who came next?
    Before the feature, the guys also rattle through some recent news and short topics relating to their Doctor Who fandom this past month.

    The Doctor Who Show S05 E05 – Terry Nation's Doctor Who Show

    The Doctor Who Show S05 E05 – Terry Nation's Doctor Who Show

    Terence Joseph Nation (8 August 1930 – 9 March 1997) was a Welsh television writer and novelist who listeners to our podcast will know as the creator of the Daleks.
    As well as his work on Doctor Who for the First, Third and Fourth Doctors, Nation also created cult TV classics Survivors and Blake's 7, in addition to writing for The Avengers, The Baron, The Champions, Department S, The Persuaders! and The Saint.
    Despite this astounding pedigree versus many of his peers, it's fair to say that Nation isn't widely regarded as one of the great classic Doctor Who writers.
    Rob and Dave take a deep dive into Nation's career and fan perceptions of him to both re-evaluate the man and also pay tribute to his time on Doctor Who.
    What are your favourite Terry Nation penned stories or series?

    The Key to Time (Season 16)

    The Key to Time (Season 16)

    Rob and Dave asked listeners at the end of the previous monthly episode whether they should tackle Season 16 or Season 25 in this episode. Almost 150 votes were received across Facebook and Twitter, with Season 16 just squeaking through for the win.
    After a brief discussion of the season, including thoughts on new companion Romana played by Mary Tamm, and returning producer Graham Williams, the guys then give their thoughts on each individual episode, before a summary at the end, tackling their best and worst episodes and whether the season works overall. What are your thoughts on it?

    The Podcast of Decision III (The DW Show Presents...)

    The Podcast of Decision III (The DW Show Presents...)

    Time for another edition of the Podcast of Decision, this time featuring Dave, along with sometime Doctor Who Show contributor and co-host; Richard, and the guys from the 42 to Doomsday podcast; Rob and Mark.
    If you’re unfamiliar with The Podcast of Decision, in November 2018, Rob and Dave sat down in a hotel room with Todd and Nathan from Flight Through Entirety (and Jodie into Terror), to record a breezy wander through all of Doctor Who via some games Dave devised. Dave called this recording, The Podcast of Decision.
    In August 2019 we ran a second installment - coincidentally featuring today's cast - and it received such good feedback, a third edition was always going to happen at some stage. So here it finally is!
    We hope you're all safe, staying at home and washing your hands and perhaps content like this can be of some comfort to ward off the dreaded 'cabin fever' during these extraordinary times.
