You probably don’t know this, but Kasterborous editor Christian Cawley has been a little under the weather of late, which has resulted in this week’s podKast landing horrifically late – almost overtaking itself in the process.
Worry not, however, dear listener, as Christian has teamed up with James McLean (a poorly Brian Terranova was also sadly unavailable) in order to discuss some of the most important Doctor Who news of the past week. In this week’s huskier-than-usual podKast (Christian’s recovering chest infection sounding a little Barry White-esque, quite appropriate for a podKast recorded on St. Valentine’s Day), we discuss the recent speculation concerning Doctor Who‘s supposed return in July, the apparent lack of female scriptwriters in the show since 2005, whether our favourite Time Lord has really been a sexual creature since day one, a case pressed recently by Steven Moffat, and whether the BBC will close the doors on the TARDIS for good should its flagship show suddenly end up being run by illegal aliens following the referendum on Scottish independence (yes, we really went there).
As ever, we’ve also got the recommendations, among which is The Sun Makers. Oh, and something we didn’t mention in the podKast – it’s a new series! We’re on our fourth volume as of this week’s edition. Milestone!
You’ll notice a new theme tune this week – huge thanks to Russell Hugo for his sterling work in this area!

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 http://audioboo.fm/channel/doctorwhopodkast 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:
