Doctor Who – Ep231: Don’t Trust Mrs Wormwood

Hey Who fans. In this week's show... The News Some rumblings around the interwebs suggest a Doctor Who Christmas Special could be on the cards before Series 12 starts next year. Merch Corner Some Big Finish is on the way starting with the limited edition vinyl release of the 10th Doctor story The Creeping Death which is exclusive to Asda and The Lives of Captain Jack which shows an intriguing cover of Jack wearing the 6th Doctor's costume, hmmm 🤔 "SJA - Enemy of the Bane" Review We're wrapping up Series 2 with this week's review. We've loved reviewing SJA so far so does this one continue to delight or does it fall through a portal of disappointment? Next week our review will be the 1st Doctor story - The Keys or Marinus. Until then have a great week and remember - Allons-y! The post Doctor Who – Ep231: Don’t Trust Mrs Wormwood appeared first on The Doctor Who Big Blue Box Podcast.

Doctor Who – Ep192: Is it Sutekh or not?

Welcome to Episode 192... The News This year's San Diego Comic Con will see the first panel featuring the new cast and producers from the new series of Who. Can we expect a trailer?

An enjoyable one or are we watching through the gaps in our fingers? Thank you for joining us for 192. Next week we're back to The Sarah Jane Adventuress and Warriors of Kudlak. Have a great week and until next time - Allons-y!

Doctor Who – Ep214: 2018 Year in Review

Welcome to Episode 214... No news, merch or review this week Who fans. Instead, we're going to round out 2018 with a year in review where Adam and I give you our best and not so good moments followed by some Q&A. As 2018 draws to a close both Adam and I would like to thank you all for another awesome year. Our little podcast which started as a one-man-show back in 2014 has grown so much and we really appreciate all the comments, reviews, audio clips and interaction with all our listeners. We wish you all a very Merry Christmas (hope you get that piece of Who merch you've been after!) and a Happy New Year! A reminder that we're now off for a couple of weeks and we will return on 11th Jan with our review of the New Year's Day Special - Resolution. Until then have a brilliant break and until next time - Allons-y! The post Doctor Who – Ep214: 2018 Year in Review appeared first on The Doctor Who Big Blue Box Podcast.

"SJA - The Last Sontaran" Review We've loved reviewing SJA so far and Series 1 was awesome. Are we just as happy with this story that kicks off Series 2 or does a Sontaran in SJA turn out to be too much for our Attic Crew to handle? Thank you so much for joining us for 203.
