Flying through the entire history of Doctor Who. With Cake.
This week, we answer the most important questions about the latest leg of our flight — the Russell T Davies Era. What happened to Nerys during the Year of Hell? Which monsters would we most like to party with? Who is the best guest character, and why is it Ida Scott? And is this the best era in the show’s history?
A Great Release of Tension
This week, we’ve hastily convened an emergency meeting in our darkest conference room: Todd’s itching to try out his new glove, Nathan has some serious objections to make, James is here mostly for the exposition and Peter is hunched over the desk doing his best Dalek Caan impersonation. It’s the end of the David Tennant ... Read more
Do Something Big
This Christmas, everyone’s incredibly hungry, but we’re not allowed to start on dinner until the Doctor’s embarrassing relatives arrive. It’s the episode with the most oxymoronic title in the entire series — The End of Time, Part One.
Fix or Flux
This month, Brendan’s got his hand stuck up a robot, while Nathan is preparing a roast dinner made entirely of carrots and prions, when they are unexpectedly joined by those travellers in space and time known only as Pete Lambert and Conrad Westmaas. The conversation soon turns to accents, zombies and specious moral dilemmas: this is, after all, The Waters of Mars.
Big Finish, Call Me Now
It’s Easter 2009, and here we are, huddling in a bus with Michelle Ryan on the desert planet San Helios, with the sun in our eyes, hope in our hearts and a hundred billion dead people in our hair. It’s the first special episode of David Tennant’s final year: welcome to the Planet of the Dead.
Welcome to the Kandy Kommentary
This week Thatcherism, marshmallows and contractual obligation collide as we fulfil a promise made late in 2017 to record a commentary on one of Doctor Who's angriest and most revolutionary stories, The Happiness Patrol.

Great Group of Who Fans
Brendan and team always deliver a solid podcast! They have strong opinions and they stick to them, which I always appreciate. They also really know they're stuff - I don't find myself mentally correcting mistakes when I listen. :) And with special episodes like their Time, Inc. endeavor, they aren't afraid to do something different. And the episodes aren't too long, making them easy to binge (which I did when I first discovered them) and easy to keep up with as they drop.
Keep up the great work, guys!
Thought they were good based on recommendation but then actually listened to them.
This is one of the very best podcasts I’ve ever heard, Doctor Who or otherwise. As much fun as it is to listen to a great podcast about Doctor Who, the real pleasure here is spending time in the company of some witty, knowledgeable people.
All four of the members are well-spoken and are great behind a microphone (at least one of them is a trained actor). Unlike some podcasts where the podcasters seem to be talking only to each other, this group remembers there is an audience wanting to be entertained. There are no long pauses or drawn out “uhhhh”s, all of the members are knowledgeable about a variety of subjects, and everybody’s names are pronounced correctly. Even when I don’t get all of the cultural references, the humor comes through and I find myself laughing anyway. Just look at the episode titles - if you don’t find yourself laughing (or even recognize the joke) at “Sand In Your Perineum”, then this isn’t the podcast for you.
They’ve recently switched from biweekly to weekly, covering only one TV serial per episode. While that makes the podcasts shorter, I’m now disappointed they’re over so soon. This is definitely a case of leaving the audience wanting more. If only all podcasts were this good!
