Rank #1: 42 to Doomsday - Losing My Religion
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?!
Rank #2: 42 to Doomsday - Staff Xmas Party Goes Fourth
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!*
*unless Rob goes back into rehab! Fingers crossed, either way!
Rank #3: 42 to Doomsday - Surprise-Cast!
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!
Rank #4: 42 to Doomsday - The Final End?
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 ?

Rank #9: 42 to Doomsday - Dragged from the Archives 4

All this plus listen as Mark draws (very) tenuous links to Frankie Goes To Hollywood and Peter Howell and listen to the very end for a slice of DAAS nostalgia who ask if Kyle and Jason may or may not be Freemasons?
