Giveaways Doctor Who: #SaveTheDay

#SaveThePodKast with a Competition!

Kasterborous Doctor Who podKast

This week’s podKast covers a trio of topical Doctor Who news items AND gives you the chance to win a copy of Doctor Who: The Vault from BBC Books!

James McLean, Christian Cawley and Brian Terranova are on hand to offer their thoughts and discuss the recent #SaveTheDay teaser, the sad tone to the rediscovered William Hartnell interview and Steven Moffat’s suggestion that Fires of Pompeii‘s Caecilius and Torchwood: Children of Earth‘s John Frobisher resemblance to the Twelfth Doctor (for obvious reasons) will be written into the show.

We’ll leave you to listen to the show rather than challenge you to guess as to what we thought about these topics (although the word Atlantis is uttered with derision…) but note that the competition is towards the end. Email your answer to before midnight, Saturday October 5th – so act quickly!

So why a competition? Well, it’s simple. Since we’ve been running the podKast through Audioboo, our audience figures have skyrocketed. We’re talking of an effective doubling of our listeners, so not only do we wish you all a hello and welcome, our competition is there to give something back for your growing support over the past two years.

Let’s hit play!

Kasterborous Series 3 Episode 35 Shownotes

Before we move onto the other playback options, don’t miss our live podKast on Google Hangouts this Sunday, October 6th at 3pm GMT/11am EST.

Listen to the PodKast

There are several ways to listen. In addition to the usual player above, we’re pleased to announce that you can also stream the podKast using Stitcher, an award-winning, free mobile app available for Android and iPhone/iPad. This pretty much means that you can listen to us anywhere without downloading – pretty neat, we think you’ll agree! (Note that it can take a few hours after a new podKast is published to “catch up”.)

What’s more, you can now listen and subscribe to the podKast via our Audioboo channel! Head to and click play to start listening. You can also comment and record your own boos in response to our discussions!

Meanwhile you can use the player below to listen through Audioboo:

You haven’t clicked play yet?! What are you waiting for? As well as our new Stitcher and Audioboo presence you can also use one of these amazingly convenient ways to download and enjoy this week’s 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!

      It is good to know that there are some issues you still can’t spin your way out of, and thereby prove exception to the given rule. I won’t concede your point, more embrace it and the good fortune that the rule is yet to become absolute.

  2. re: Peter Capaldi’s three roles: Surely the surname of the character is the give away… he isn’t a time lord, he’s a shape-changing penguin!

      I meant the surname of the character from Torchwood, obviously…
