The PodKast


Is the Omnirumour Fandom’s Own Schrodinger’s Cat?

Gareth Kavanagh joins Christian Cawley for this week’s podKast, discussing everything from Mission DALEK to the differences between MP3 and FLAC. But on the way, they stop off and spend some time chatting about the current state of the omnirumour, the rather optimistic collection of rumours concerning the discovery (or otherwise) of some (or all) of…


Discussed: Doctor Who Series 9 Rumours, David Tennant & RTD in Cardiff

Christian Cawley, James McLean and Brian A Terranova head to the news well for this week’s podKast, in which they cover everything from crazy rumours to odd casting and ask questions of Big Finish’s classic/nuWho mashups. On top of that, we have completely innocent speculation about the Private Eye rumours and the presence of David Tennant…


Is Fan “Ownership” A Problem for Doctor Who Producers?

Do Doctor Who fans expect and demand too much?

But non-fans also have this, such as the notion that the Doctor is actually called “Dr Who”, or that the Daleks are in every single episode (which would…


Is Steven Moffat Right to Bemoan Twitter’s Audience Research Capability?

As you might have read, Doctor Who chief Steven Moffat thinks Twitter is useless for gauging true audience reaction. Well, of course it is! Christian Cawley, James McLean and Brian Terranova discuss the insanity of this comment, plus, the latest Doctor Who and wider news from the San Diego Comic-Con and our weekly recommendations.



How to Organise a Doctor Who Convention with Gareth Kavanagh

Comic-Con might be the jewel in the crown of the international convention scene, but we’re more fond of smaller, intimate events. As such, we’ve invited Gareth Kavanagh, the man behind the Vworp events (and acclaimed Vworp Vworp! fanzine) and more recent offerings such as An Evening with Waris Hussein and An Afternoon with Terrance Dicks…
