MERRY CHRISTMAS! We didn't originally plan to do this episode, but the opportunity arose, to bring you some special presents on Christmas Day. Firstly, we've a present for you, dear listener. We've married up Gordon Tipple's original opening narration for the TV Movie, with the soundtrack, to hear how it may originally have sounded. Secondly, we've…
 
"CHRISTMAS wouldn't be Christmas without my plum pudding!" So Mrs Baddeley tells us throughout The Chimes of Midnight, and now, for many Doctor Who / Big Finish fans, Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without The Chimes of Midnight. This Christmas Eve, we're joined by our friends all over the world, as we celebrate the story regarded by many as the g…

WE'VE comprehensively covered the first 18 EDAs with the Doctor and Sam... but we don't want to stop there!

We're joined, as ever, by range editor Steve Cole, and writer Simon Messingham talks us through his journey as a Doctor Who writer - and we find out which of his good friends became a 21st century TV serie…
 
IT WOULD be fair to say that Beltempest is a Doctor Who novel with a high-concept science fiction idea at its heart. There's no moustache-twirling villains, or bases under siege. Not only is Beltempest a story of note, but this is an episode with a difference - we don't have a 'live' interview with author Jim Mortimore, but he kindly agreed to reco…
 
WE'RE nearing the end of our look at this first phase of novels in the Eighth Doctor Adventures novelatic universe (to make up a phrase). Today, it's The Janus Conjunction, as we look at a fondly-remembered adventure in which the Doctor's companion, Sam Jones, DIES at the end. She does. Dead. She's an ex-companion. She has ceased to be (etc). And w…

WE LIED! We told you episode 4.16 was the last of the run, and it really, really was planned to be... and now, it's the penultimate episode of season four! Before our fifth season kicks off, looking at Phase One of the EDA (we like that phrase - we'll have to use it more in future), we present an overview of the BBC Books series, as not all of our …

VIEWERS of Doctor Who in the 21st century have become accustomed to watching how the show is made behind the scenes, through DVD and bluray extras, and Doctor Who Confidential.

LET'S BE honest - as a Doctor Who fan, we'd all love to appear in the show in one form or another, whether as an actor, writer, director, producer, or even just in the background. It would, of course, be an impossible dream to think that you could get a small on-screen speaking part, especially if you were a fan who lived in Canada.... But dreams c…
