Doctor Who: Podshock
Live Talkshoe broadcasts -
call in number (724) 444-7444 call id 23358

chat show done in podcast format. Hosted by Louis Trapani, Ken Deep, and James
Naughton, with frequent contributions/co-hosting by Dave AC, Mike Doran, and a
cast of many. There is a feed for studio shows and a feed for live shows.
2) Also home to the Sonic Newsdriver, Louis Trapani's periodic rundown of new
Doctor Who news.
3) Also home to the Hitch-hiker's Guide To British Sci-Fi, a podcast covering a

international delays.

Radio Free Skaro
The 3 Canadians (Warren, Steven, Chris) get together on the weekends for about
an hour or more to discuss the latest in Doctor Who, Torchwood, and Sarah Jane
in a fairly amusing manner. When one is away, the 4th Canadian (Katrina) will
play. They recently completed a series of bonus features on Wednesdays in
varying styles.
Current episodes:
-Special segment inside The DWO Whocast episode 119.
#141 - "The Curse Of Keith Boak". The episode Aliens Of London brought Doctor
Who back to Earth, brought back UNIT, revisited family, experimented with
topical political humor that dates incredibly badly, and had the first real Who
cliffhanger since 1989. Steven, Chris, and Katrina examine the cultural
implications of this episode while Warren misses an episode while fighting a
Slitheen army in Vancouver.
Coming Soon:
#142 - "That's A Wrap". David Tennant has finished filming Doctor Who. Chris is
live on the scene (give or take the distance of an entire country). As Canadians
react to the shocking news that Planet Of The Dead was never scheduled to air on
SPACE in June after all, the RFS team give comfort and solace by looking at
World War Three, the first episode to suffer in Canada by the CBC being given a
damaged print.
DWO Whocast
Trevor from Australia and Marty from the UK talk Doctor Who with themselves,
others, and teddy bears dressed as doctors. Now with a rock version of the
opening theme, the Whocast continues to ask the questions that pop in to their
heads. Regular correspondent - James. Frequent guest - Michael of the Tin Dog
Current episodes
Whocast episode 118. Part One of two. Trevor and Marty team up with Chip from
the Two Minute Time Lord podcast and Benjamin from This Week In Doctor Who in a
special panel discussion. The worldwide discussion on Doctor Who is hampered by
how it gets delayed in so many countries. People download the episodes to avoid
having to wait for weeks or months. The issues and the thoughts of 4 people are
expressed here. Warning - Chip and Benjamin were very tired when this was
Whocast Episode 119. Part Two of two. Doctor Who: Podshock, Radio Free Skaro,
The Minute Doctor Who Podcast, the Tin Dog Podcast, DaveAC Cooper of CIAShock
and a popular VLog continue the topic of Doctor Who and delays from country to
Whocast Episode 120 (just went online). A trio of DVD reviews. Trevor and Marty
look at the Region 2 releases of Attack Of The Cybermen, Image Of The Fendahl,
and The Deadly Assassin.

West, Dave AC, Colin, and other Doctor Who fans liked the live Doctor Who:
Podshocks so much that they wanted to keep talking afterwards. The resulting

all directions. Chats open 15 minutes before the scheduled start time.

- Shows 25 to 11.

Doctor Who Review Today
Live editions Late Fridays 1AM EDT/10PM PDT/6AM BST
Robert Carrie King reviews Doctor Who topics (DVDs and news, mostly) on this
Talkshoe program. Frequent cast member on CIA: Cultdom In Audio.
Most recent episode - May 22/23. Episode 34. Arc Of Infinity's DVD release is
discussed. Also - Utopia (from new Series 3). This episode is well over 2 hours
long, so Robert probably had some guests and/or callers.
The Wailing Fangirl
Samantha (Romana 2) explores Doctor Who and fandom in Australia, sometimes with
the aid of the ladies of the Gallifreyan Time Love Brigade. Frequent cast member
on CIA: Cultdom In Audio.
Current episode - 8. A look at the First Doctor's Era.

do a full length commentary on new Doctor Who episodes.
Current episode:
Planet Of The Dead - the commentary.
Bigger On The Inside
Mike and Dan decide to do their own podcast exploring each Doctor Who story in
broadcast order. It is a very different style from Jonathan's. Again - can they
pull it off? Part of the Earth-2 family of podcasts. Warning - explicit language
(swearing). If your headphones leak any sound at all - do not listen at work.
Current episode - 13 - The Daleks' Master Plan. The longest Doctor Who story of
the 1960s is the sole topic of this episode.

Jonathan Rainer is podcasting his experiences as he watches Doctor Who. In
original broadcast order. From 1963. Without a gap. Can he pull it off?
Current episode - 13 - The Web Planet. Includes an update on the delays in the
interactive website Jonathan is planning.
Hoo On Who
Fan reviews of recent Doctor Who DVDs by David Hooie, frequently with a guest
Current episode - #9. Inferno. An epic 3rd Doctor story is reviewed, with guest
Ken Deep of Doctor Who: Podshock.
Two Minute Time Lord
A bite-sized commentary and revew show. Host Chip's interest was rekindled by
the 2005 revival. He believes in balancing old fandom and new viewers, respect
for the past and breaking the rules. He tries to keep his pontifications to 120
seconds, because we're ALL in a hurry these days.
Current Episodes:
20 - "Inaccurately Named" In a special 6 minute episode (triple the usual
length), Chip discusses his visit to the Whocast for their episode 118 and the
Star Trek relaunch versus the Doctor Who relaunch.
21 - "About That Casting Spoiler" Were you shocked by a recent casting
announcement for the upcoming Doctor Who specials (there were several to choose
from). Two Minute Time Lord is here to calm you down.
22 - "The Highway Fan Challenges Steven Moffat" Because we all have a great
story inside us wanting to get out. Chip's story is for Doctor #11.
23 - "Thank You, David Tennant" Benjamin Cook of DWM has tweeted the news. David
Tennant has finished his filming on Doctor Who. Nothing left to do but say

Video (sometimes just audio) podcast looking at Doctor Who projects. Episodes
are usually under 5 minutes long.
Current episode - 13 - "Parlour Games" A nice audio episode discussiong the
games that can be played with episode titles. Once again, iTunes will happily
play it on the computer, but refuses to send it to an iPod.

A wild, wandering podcast with Doctor Who, Torchwood, Primeval, and other shows
winding together roughly once every 2 weeks.
Episode 45 - "The Throwback" - Doctor Who convention, swine flu scares the
movies, the future of Heroes, the past of Terminator, and the ever present
threat of the Head of Pertwee.
Promo - Staggering Stories tries to do an advertisement for themselves.
Coming soon:
The infamous Episode 46
The Big Finish Podcast
Big Finish podcasts at least once a month to discuss their Doctor Who and other
projects (Sapphire and Steel, Stargate (!), Dark Shadows, Bernice Summerfield,
Current episode - Last Of The Titans, pt 2. A classic freebie episode goes out
on the feed. Regular episodes to continue shortly.
Tachyon TV - Tachyon TV entry should be up next week. Need to find some tachyons
to string it together with first.
MMM Commentaries
Roving Australian podcasting gang. Commentaries on Doctor Who episodes, Star
Wars films, some Stargate stuff, and others.
Current episode - The Curse Of Fenric - DVD Extended Version.
MMM noticed that no commentary was done for the recut movie version of The Curse
Of Fenric on its DVD set either. So MMM does their own, along the line of their
recent commentary for Battlefield's DVD Extended Version. I had not heard it at
press time - but hope it is good.
The Two Doctors
call in number (718) 664-9807
Jim Iaccino and Kenn Gold look at the latest SciFi broadcasts in the US, with
emphasis on fitting in Doctor Who, Dollhouse, Smallville, Supernatural, Fringe,
Torchwood, and the other big scifi shows of the moment. Everything is based on
US premiere dates rather than UK. Approximately 90 minutes per episode. Show
airs live with a text chat and can be downloaded later.
Next episode - Late Sunday Midnight EDT/9PM PDT/Monday 5AM BST - The US TV
season is over. But Harper's Island is still running, Torchwood is coming,
Doctor Who isn't scheduled, Medium hopped networks, Smallville and Fringe are
switching days, and a holiday weekend will almost surely break the program they
host the show on. Oh dear.
TV Talk Radio
Weeknights 6 to 8PM EDT (3 to 5PM PDT) [Friday 7PM EDT/4PM PDT]
Shaun O'Mac Daily (of the Jericho "nuts" campaign) hosts a daily 2 hour show
covering all things TV. Doctor Who is sometimes discussed in the 2nd hour of the

website with archives appearing right after the show finishes.
