    While Dave is jet-setting around Europe, Rob welcomes Dylan Rees (DOCTOR WHO: TOO HOT FOR TV) back to the podcast.

    Dylan has brought today's main topic: 1960s Doctor Who writer, and sometime script editor, Dennis Spooner.

    The guys keep the discussion light, so anyone can tune in and learn a little about Dennis and his stories without feeling overwhelmed by someone they perhaps aren't familiar with, writing black and white television almost 60 years ago.

    Before then, the guys discuss some news from the past month, some short topics, and some great listener feedback. We really do have the best listeners, folks.

    Hope you enjoy the episode! Contact us anytime, hello@theDWshow.net

    Top Five Nu Who Writers

    Top Five Nu Who Writers

    A new month means a new LIST MAKERS episode!

    This time, we look at Nu Who (or Modern Doctor Who as some like to call it), writers. Who do we rate, and why? There's a lot to choose from since the revival in 2005!

    If you’ve never heard a List Makers episode before, these are 20m chats based around making a list related to a Doctor Who topic and discussing our similarities, differences, and whatever else comes up during the chat!

    Suggestions for future lists to be drawn from The Hat of Rassilon are welcome; get in touch!

    Twitter, Facebook or email us old-school style at hello@thedwshow.net
