PodKast with an Asylum!

Brian Terranova gets close to Amy PondThis week in the Kasterborous podKast (with a “K”) we focus on Brian Terranova’s experiences at the Asylum of the Daleks preview in New York”.

With stories and recollections from the event, Brian tells us everything we need to know about this potentially triumphant return for the Daleks, without giving anything away at all!

In addition, we have a chat about Pond Life and also summarise Steven Moffat’s recent comments concerning Doctor Who scheduling and iPlayer.

PodKast with an Elysium

A little later than intended, it’s time for the Kasterborous podKast (with a “K”), in which Christian Cawley, Brian Terranova and James McLean discuss a selection of Doctor Who-related subjects!

Starting off with James’ review of The Crash of the Elysium, we also cover the recent San Diego Comic-Con appearances of the series’ key personnel as well as mulling over what sort of questions we would ask our favourite stars in such a situation. There is also plenty of time to discuss the new look for the Eighth Doctor which has made the transition from New Zealand convention photo to Big Finish cover image!

In order to contextualize this, James McLean, Brian Terranova and Christian Cawley start off by discussing the various Doctor Who events and attractions since 2005 and how they have grown in scale and ambition. Christian also quizzes Tom on The Girl Who Waited and the future of the Cybermen…

PodKast with a Fan Production

Paul Darrow guests in Robots of Death: Live

With a plethora of Doctor Who fan productions making the news over the past few weeks, we decided to bring them all together in one big podKast (with a “K”) discussion!
From Gareth Kavanagh’s production of The Robots of Death (the first night of which will star Blake’s 7’s Paul Darrow) to the new interpretation of The Power of the Daleks written by, directed and starring Nick Scovell by way of Dennis Spielman’s Who-inspired Time Traveling Troupe improv web series, we cover a wide range of opinions and thoughts. Featuring an interview with Spielman and a discussion about the pitfalls of planning and producing a fan film.

PodKast with an Eternity Clock

The history of Doctor Who videogames is littered with good intentions, but sadly along the way there have been many disappointments.

With the release of Doctor Who: Worlds in Time and Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock, BBC Worldwide hope to push the concept beyond the disappointment of Return to Earth or Dalek Attack.

But just what will it take?

Featuring an interview with BBC Worldwide’s Simon Harris, this week’s (delayed) podKast (with a “K”) features James McLean, Christian Cawley (and Brian Terranova) discussing games such as Destiny of the Doctors and Doctor Who: The Adventure Games.

PodKast with a Dark Dimension

Doctor Who: The Dark DimensionBack in 1993, Doctor Who fans were tempted with an early reprieve to the show’s cancellation two years earlier when BBC Enterprises entered into an agreement to start production on a straight-to-video 30th anniversary special, The Dark Dimension (aka Lost in the Dark Dimension).

Over the  years Doctor Who fans have been lead to believe that the eventually-cancelled project was scuppered by Philip Segal, producer of the 1996 TV Movie.

However recent research published in fanzine (a term that does the publication a disservice) Nothing at the End of the Lane reveals that Segal has at best overstated his role. The real story behind The Dark Dimension is one of bad decision making, poor budgeting and almost no communication with the key people involved, resulting in a production that almost literally crumbled.

It is this research that forms the basis of our discussion this week, along with a few words about the possibility of Sherlock's Benedict Cumberbatch playing the Master in the upcoming 50th anniversary season.

We’ve only scraped the surface of this fascinating story, and you can read the full fascinating details behind the failed production in the latest edition of Nothing at the End of the Lane, which you can order for just £5.99 from endofthelane.co.uk/magazine.html.

PodKast with Handlebars

With the news of a Doctor Who and Star Trek: The Next Generation crossover series from IDW, we decided to have a look in depth at the Cybermen and how we felt they had been handled by various producers over the years.

Referencing everything from Tenth Planet to Earthshock, Rise of the Cybermen to Closing Time, we attempt to establish where the Cybermen have gone wrong - if at all.

After all, the Borg could be described as being “Cybermen done right” - they aren’t basic storm troopers and have a fascinating, developed back story, something largely ignored in the case of Cybermen.

PodKast with a Fanboy Hope

Last wek we brought you the astonishing showreel of John Guilor, a voice artist whose recent work has including reproducing the voices of several former Doctors.

So amazing was this news that we naturally decided to dedicate an entire podKast (with a “K”) to the news and its implications (apart from the bit when we talk about Sophia Myles…)

A very big thanks, incidentally, to James McLean who kindly devotes his time to editing together our ramblings, adding sound effects and generally making sure the podKast is available every week!

Incidentally, we haven’t seen Brian since he went travelling towards the end of the this podKast - can anyone help?
