PodKast with a Reference Book (Featuring Paul Scoones)

This week’s podKast (with a “K”) takes a slightly different flavour as Christian Cawley and James McLean discuss Doctor Who non-fiction, specifically reference books.

The Comic Strip Companion: the Unofficial and Unauthorised Guide to Doctor Who in Comics: 1964 - 1979

Armed with a copy of Lance Parkin’s A History and Paul Scoones’ The Comic Strip Companion: 1964-1979, your hosts spend time simply delving in at random and discussing the results! This makes for a wide-ranging conversation, enhanced further when Christian chats to Paul Scoones himself.


Once again, you’ll find a mysterious time-wimey “Previously on next week’s podKast” sentence to look out for – let us know if you spotted it from last week’s closing segment. Confused? You should be…

You can listen to our weekly podKast in one (or all, if you’re a glutton for punishment) of three ways:

  1. Use the player in the top right of each page on Kasterborous.
  2. Listen with the “pop out” player above, which also allows you to download the podKast to your computer.
  3. Third, you can take advantage of the RSS feed to subscribe to the podKast for your media player, and also find us on iTunes!

  1. Lance Parkin’s AHistory is my favorite. A grand attempt to create a contiunity chronologically of the Doctor Who universe, including the television series classic and new, the Big Finish audios, the Virgin NA’s and MA’s, the BBC books, and the comics. Heads up as the Third Edition will be released from Mad Norwegian Press in early November……….

  2. The Making of Doctor Who was rereleased with Tom Baker on the cover in 1976. I don’t know, but I presume it was updated too. 🙂
