PodKast Talks Big Finish, Christopher Eccleston and the Seal of Rassilon

This week we had planned to discuss another classic Doctor Who serial that has a mixed reputation. However, as it is just Christian Cawley and James McLean, we decided instead to look at some of the more interesting news items of the past week, such as the nuWho/Big Finish crossover in UNIT: Extinction and the lovely sight of Christopher Eccleston helping out with a Whovian wedding proposal. There was also time to talk about the announceent of the Sixth Doctor’s final adventure as well as the odd communications within the pages of Doctor Who Magazine between Russell T Davies and Steven Moffat.

We finish off with some interesting recommendations. Ready? Click play.

PodKast introduction by John Guilor. Theme tune by Russell Hugo.

Listen to the PodKast

There are several ways to listen. In addition to the usual player above, we’re pleased to announce that you can also stream the podKast using Stitcher, an award-winning, free mobile app available for Android and iPhone/iPad. This pretty much means that you can listen to us anywhere without downloading – pretty neat, we think you’ll agree! (Note that it can take a few hours after a new podKast is published to “catch up”.)

You haven’t clicked play yet?! What are you waiting for? As well as our new Stitcher and Audioboo presence you can also use one of these amazingly convenient ways to download and enjoy this week’s podKast.

  1. Use the player in the top right of the Kasterborous home page, or visit the podKast menu link.
  2. Listen with the “pop out” player above, which also allows you to download the podKast to your computer.
  3. You can also take advantage of the RSS feed to subscribe to the podKast for your media player, and even find us on iTunes, where your reviews will help the show considerably.

  1. Maybe the writers think that giving the Doctor wives and granddaughters makes him more interesting by making him more accessible. I find that it makes him more banal and ordinary by making him more accessible.

  2. Great work as ever. I still stand by what I said regarding the First Doctor’s hypothetical wife though… 🙂

    You say at the start of the ‘article’ (in the text before the player) that you “had planned to discuss another classic serial that has a mixed reputation”. Presumably this will be next week’s podKast, if so are any of you in a position to tell us which one so that we can get up to speed beforehand or will it be a surprise?
