The Curse of the PodKast

A little later than planned, it’s time for the Kasterborous podKast with a K to cast its eye on last week’s Curse of the Black Spot, as well as look forward to Neil Gaiman’s The Doctor’s Wife and even chat about the BBC Four tribute to the late Elisabeth Sladen this week in the shape of The Hand of Fear.

Joining me this time are Brian A Terranova and news contributor Patrick Riley. Things went a little crazy this week; the slightly reduced sound quality can be explained away by the fact that we were in fact podcasting from 1976, for reasons that will become clear…

We also chat about the recent controversy (or should that be storm in a teacup) concerning Doctor Who audience figures and the machinations of various printed organs to bash the series.

That convenient player above isn’t the only way to listen to the Kasterborous podKast – you might alternatively listen via direct download, from iTunes or by subscribing to the RSS feed!
