PodKast Discusses The Snowmen Christmas Trailer

Kasterborous Doctor Who podKastThis week’s podKast (with a “K”) features a discussion of the new Doctor Who Christmas trailer, revealed last week on Children in Need. We also cover the Steven Moffat and Phil Ford’s recent Writer’s Guild awards and the current state of children’s drama TV, referencing The Sarah Jane Adventures and Wizards vs Aliens.

Also this week, we offer our recommendations on some recent releases and finally say goodbye to Time Leech.

Our thoughts on the Christmas trailer seem to be quite different, with Brian Terranova in particular claiming to be “depressed” by the apparent misuse of the Sontaran character as a comic character. What do you think? Has Steven Moffat devalued the Sontarans or were they always a bit of a ridiculous alien race?

If you’re a new listener (welcome to the podKast!), here’s how you can listen to our weekly show:

  1. Use the player in the top right of each page on Kasterborous.
  2. Listen with the “pop out” player above, which also allows you to download the podKast to your computer.
  3. Third, you can take advantage of the RSS feed to subscribe to the podKast for your media player, and also find us on iTunes!

We’ll be back again next week with more Doctor Who discussion…
