WOW! What a weekend.
Regular listeners to the Kasterborous Doctor Who podcast might have been expecting The John Hurt PodKast this week, but thanks to a leaked memo forcing the BBC’s hand over the past couple of days, we’re putting that show back a week to discuss the shock news of Matt Smith’s departure from Doctor Who.
That’s right, the popular Eleventh Doctor is close to the end, even if it may not be at Trenzalore, and this week’s hosts James McLean and Christian Cawley have plenty to muse over.
To start off with, there’s Matt Smith’s recent haircut and the potential continuity issues this might bring. There’s the possibility of female Doctors and young Doctors, older actors and even – for the brave among you – the reformatting of the show, 1970-style, into running with an ensemble cast.
As you’ll hear, Steven Moffat (if he’s staying around…) has plenty of ways in which to refresh things for the new Doctor.

Incidentally, if you are listening on Apple Podcasts, please take the time to leave a rating and review and help us to bring in new listeners to the podKast! We are now offering the scent of freshly groomed Time Lords in a Kilner jar especially to you, dear listener, if you can help us to raise our profile! That’s right – you too can say “you were there” when Matt Smith had his head shaved!
Yes, dear listener – you. What other podcast would give you that?
Oh and finally – a big hello to our listener, Don from Philly!
