Plus Big Finish is bringing back not only the Doctor’s daughter, Jenny, for a second series, but also Sir Derek Jacobi for some audio chinwaggin’ about his legendary career, and ...

    Normality may be crawling back into our disease-ridden lives as Whooverville 12 (in Derby) and Long Island Who (in the form of Time-Flight 2021) announce in-person events in September and November, and if you wanted every Doctor to appear in an interactive theatrical piece named Time Fracture, now you can!

    There comes a time in the life of every podcast when they must do something they do not wish to do, but that they know they have to do and that time is now for Radio Free Skaro with the Torchwood Revisisted commentary for “Cyberwoman”, a baffling hodge-podge of robotics and puerile nonsense. Or are we overreacting? But before we subject you to this televisual atrocity, there’s Big Finish news, Hugo Awards finalist updates, and more...

    As the global pandemic abates (everywhere but Canada, currently in the throes of The Swarm 3.0) Doctor Who news is…somewhat sedate. But we do have news of a Canadian release date for the Season 24 Blu-ray, Dalek auctions, a Devil’s End comic book Kickstarter, and copious praise for the student-produced Mission to the Unknown from 2019! And as if that wasn’t enough to overload your sensorium, our Torchwood Revisited commentaries con...

    • Dr. Death

      We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
