PodKast with a WriterCon!

Kasterborous Doctor Who podKastHi there, Kasterborites! Welcome to this week’s exciting podKast (with a “K”) in which we cover everything from crappy PR statements that talk down to us to fielding questions for a coming chat with a Doctor Who scriptwriting prodigy…

But don’t let any of that disturb you from your baked beans and chips, your soap operas and your wooly jumpers.

Instead, we’ll leave you wishing that you too could be attending an event featuring Terrance Dicks, Philip Martin, Andrew Smith and Keith Temple, in which the guests talk about their most popular episodes, interspersed with clips and fielding questions from the adoring audience.

Yes, next Sunday is Vworp 5:Writercon, so along with our chat about the shock resignation of Caro Skinner as Doctor Who Executive Producer and the recent Series 7b press launch, we’ll be talking to Gareth Kavanagh, organiser of the event!

How will you be listening? There are three options for you to enjoy the podKast!

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

Incidentally, if you are listening on iTunes, please take the time to leave a rating and review and help us to bring in new listeners to the podKast! We are now offering a year’s worth of podKasts dedicated to you.

Yes, dear listener – you. What other podcast would give you that?

    I haven’t been a frequent Podkast listener, but I think I’ll try to listen more regularly. I’ve been co-hosting an anime podcast for the last couple of years so I appreciate the work you put in to bring us this extra bit on top of running that site.

    As for trailers, speaking as an American fan, I’ve always preferred the UK ones. I don’t really like the voice-overs of the US ones, I don’t think we need it (all respect to Mark Sheppard, aka Canton Everett Delaware III who’s been BBCA’s Who voice-over man since Season 6). The UK trailers are always constructed better: the right pace, the right flow of clips, and some great dramatic music as well. It practically sells itself without needing anyone to tell you what its about.


    • Glad to know we have at least one listener, TC. I think the voiceovers can prove annoying on any station, personally, but Sheppard is becoming particularly grating.. sort it BBCA!

    I really enjoy the podcasts, but does James actually enjoy Doctor Who…?


    • Heheheh, I’m told that he does. He tells us he does.

      Just not every single episode… ;)

    Yes, assuming he’s worked in Traffic, please ask Andrew Smith the best way to swap speeding points with a family member and get away with it.
