Who's better than Rob and Mark? Nobody!

By Gary 530 - Sep 13 2018
Read more
42 to Doomsday is my favorite Doctor Who podcast by a mile, and I'm a lifelong Who fan who listens to a LOT of podcasts. Hosts Rob and Mark have an enviable depth of knowledge and a real love for the show both past and present, but whereas other podcasts simply settle into covering the same subjects in the same tired way you've heard 100 times, Rob and Mark make the show truly FUN to listen to, no matter what they're discussing. 42TD stands out because they don't cover the Who world with rose-colored glasses or engage in empty rah-rah happytalk, but fearlessly and honestly express their well-reasoned views even if they go against the mainstream. Whether covering episodes, books, deep dives into complete Doctor eras, or irreverent and hilarious reviews of fanzines past, they're a joy to listen to. Sample just one show and you'll want to go back and hear them all!

Episode 80 – The hiatus is over and Rob and Mark are back with a brand new episode!

Aside from answering, ‘Why are we back?’ we also discuss the classic series blu-ray range, Rob’s latest fictional adventure and we give our own tribute to one of the most influential figures in Doctor Who - Terrance Dicks.

Rob and friend of the show David Kitchen then take an in-depth journey through how religion and faith have been portrayed over the course of the programme in both its classic and new incarnations before Rob and Mark answer that deep theological conundrum, what does the future hold for this podcast?!

Episode 79 - The Four Horsemen of the Podcopalypse have returned!

Join Rob, Mark, Dave and Richard as we celebrate 2018 with laughs, tears, bitter recriminations and then joyful reconciliation!

Gasp as we summarise the first (and potentially last?) full Jodie Whitaker season of Doctor Who and then we go old school chatting about why doesn't fandom feel the love we think Terry Nation deserves.

The Target Book Club reconvenes as we look over four of the least loved Doctor Who stories. And because nobody asked for it, we each bring our Fanwank of the year nominations for discussion!

Finally, we shed a festive tear as we look back at all the non-Doctor Who stuff that captivated our attention.

Wishing a very Merry Christmas to all of you at home...42 to Doomsday will RETURN!*

Episode 78 - After promising never to return Mark and Rob prove themselves to be the dirty liars they are and are indeed back!

In this special ‘reunion’ episode we dust off the mics to discuss the fallout from #macracangate from our previous final episode.

We then 'go there' and ask are our chills multiplying over the imminent return of Doctor Who?

We continue our look at the newsworthy year of 1990 from the lens of DWB. topics discussed include: the Gerry Davis / Terry Nation bid to produce our favourite series, the trauma of the same photo appearing on DWM and TV Zone, the exciting news of the extended Curse of Fenric on VHS and finally, we pore over the results of the DWB reader poll, which to be honest include some bat-sh*t crazy outcomes!

42 to Doomsday will return at Xmas!

Podcast cover
Read more
Episode 77 - Time is called on Australia's longest running and (in)consistent podcast! It is the moment all our fans (but particularly our enemies) have waited for!

Before 42 to Doomsday rides off into the distance we strap on the mics one last time to bury Moffat, not once, but twice!

We dig through the entrails of early 1990's DWBs delusions, plus listeners feedback where we take down the whole Patreon Industrial-Military complex in a no hold's barred suicide run and then wax poetic as we sink slowly into the sunset!

But wait! Who is that *other* voice on the podcast? Could it be...Lord Melbourne?! And what does he bring with him? Could it be...not one, but two cans?

But the question you all want to know..will 42 to Doomsday return ?
