    Is The Timeless Children the End of Doctor Who - or a New Beginning?

    Is The Timeless Children the End of Doctor Who - or a New Beginning?

    Doctor Who Series 12 has finished - but what did we make of The Timeless Children? Despite leaks and spoilers aplenty, it managed to surprise. But does it offer a brand new direction for Doctor Who beyond the hodge-podge of ideas?
    Christian Cawley and James McLean work it out.

    Doctor Who Reviewed: Ascension of the Cybermen

    Doctor Who Reviewed: Ascension of the Cybermen

    Wow. That was a cliffhanger, wasn't it? In terms of Series 12, it is certainly where everything changes - but before we get to The Timeless Children, we need to talk about Ascension of the Cybermen. Christian Cawley, Brian Terranova, and James McLean have put their heads together and produced what can only be described as a very low-tech Cyberium.
    Did we love Ascension of the Cybermen or hate it? Click play to find out!
    (Quick reminder: we're taking a break for a few weeks in mid-March. Don't fret - we're be back after Easter. In the meantime, look out for some classic podcasts and old articles republished on the website.)

    Doctor Who Review: The Haunting of Villa Diodati

    Doctor Who Review: The Haunting of Villa Diodati

    Doctor Who rumbles towards the end of Series 12 with this "base under siege" type episode - but this time, it seems the base itself, Villa Diodati on the bank of Lake Geneva, is the enemy!
    Hear James McLean and Brian Terranova's thoughts, feelings, and reactions to The Haunting of Villa Diodati, and the Doctor's encounter with the future Mary Shelley, along with Lord Byron, Percy Shelley, and Mary's step-sister Claire Clairmont - as well as the haunting figure of the Lone Cyberman!
    Listen out, too, for how The Haunting of Villa Diodati conflicts and contrasts with other stories set in the same location on the same night from the Big Finish catalogue.

    Can You Hear Me, Doctor Who? Sort the Ratings Out BBC!

    Can You Hear Me, Doctor Who? Sort the Ratings Out BBC!

    Christian Cawley, James McLean, and Brian Terranova reconvene for another in-depth chat about the latest episode of Doctor Who. Can You Hear Me? is an episode featuring a mix of time travel, classic-style villains, and a message of the week. Is the topical aspect of the show too heavy handed, as many have suggested? Or is there more to that approach?
    Hopefully we're some way to scratching at the answer to this question. Meanwhile, there is plenty more to talk about, not least the falling ratings of Doctor Who. What can the BBC do about it, short of forcing people to watch the TVs that they pay for and petition the government to ban Netflix?
    We jest... or do we? There's only one way to find out - hit play!
