Robert Holmes PodKast Special

The Autons invade in Spearhead from Space!

This week’s Kasterborous podKast (with a “K”) features regulars Christian Cawley, Brian Terranova and James McLean discussing the legendary Robert Holmes, one of the classic series’ most prolific and remarkable writers…

…or was he? Well, that’s the crux of the conversation, which follows on from James’ assertion that as good as Holmes was, a good portion of his serials weren’t all that good and his reputation is slightly overstated. There begins a vast chat in which we discuss and compare Holmes, Russell T Davies and Steven Moffat.

How could you possibly ignore a podKast that describes The Mysterious Planet‘s Queen Katryca (Joan Sims) as “sub-Irongron and sub-Carry On”?!

With the buttons above you can play and pause this podKast, and via the links you can download it to your computer to listen later or play it in a pop-up window.
