Amusing Doctor Who Misconceptions Discussed in the PodKast

Doctor Who misconceptions can be amusing; they can also be embarrassing. We’ve all had them, those moments where our internalised canon (also known as “headcanon”) betrays logic. 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…

Doctor Who New Adventures, Video Games and East of Heysham on the PodKast

Wow. After last week’s “low-key” podKast with Christian Cawley and James McLean, this week we bring in Gareth Kavanagh and the conversation swings and turns from video games and New Adventures to other podcasts, past podKasts, and Philip Martin’s upcoming East of Heysham, which Gareth is producing. All in all this is an eclectic podKast, which…


The PodKast with a Moffat-Inspired F-Bomb

It all started off so innocently. Christian Cawley and Brian A Terranova settled down to chat about some recent Doctor Who news when it all got too much for the American. The news that Steven Moffat had declared the Doctor “not a role model” sent the Kasterborous associate editor over the edge, resulting in a foul-mouthed…
