Episode 75: The Time of Angels/Flesh and Stone


 

The Time of Angels and Flesh and Stone by Steven Moffat are quite a feat.  Bring back River Song and The Weeping Angels, along with High Definition, The Doctor, Amy, and the Church, Moffat really flexed his creative muscle, displaying the direction the show was going from this point on.  What else do we want, right?  Siskoid and Ashford discuss this two part story to great length.  We're talking a little over an hour.  Ashford mentions this was the episode that made him buy into Matt Smith and being a Whovian all together.

Episode 74: Keys to Marinus


Siskoid, Joe Dredd, and Ashford discuss The Keys to Marinus by Terry Nation, creator of the Daleks.  No, Daleks are not in this serial; however a quest is!  And we are not talking about the Keys to Time.  What do you think about this serial?

Episode 73: Marco Polo


 

How does a podcast talk about a serial of Doctor Who where the actual story doesn't exist?  In a word.  Easily.  Ashford read the novelization to prep before the show, while Siskoid, of the Siskoid Blog of Geekery, revisited the reconstruction.  One can not go wrong either way.  

Ashford hopes that one day this seven part serial can be found with its lavish costumes, exotic locations, and realistic angst and peril.  Electronic Mail us your thoughts at prydonian.post@gmail.com or visit our website www.wrightonnetwork.com

Episode 72: End of Time


Ruth, Darrin, Siskoid, and Ashford have come together to discuss the end of an era: Showrunner, Doctor, Series, and Standard Definition.  That's right.  Straight Outta Gallifrey is discussing The End of Time by Russell T. Davies.  Could the 10th Doctor do so much more, or was it time for a...renewal? We also know that David Tennant was/is adored by many.  Do you miss him? Ashford has mentioned how the 10th Doctor is his favorite thing about 50th, but can think of many Doctor Who stories to pop in before a series 2-4 story.

Episode 3: Doctor Who and the Silurians


 

Straight Outta Gallifrey: A State of Temporal Grace episode 3 features Doctor Who and the Silurians, which is a Malcolm Hulke story.  Diane of the Helena Wayne Blog and Jordan the Librarian join Ashford to discuss this Doctor Who story featuring Doctor Liz Shaw played by Caroline John!  Special tribute to the late Peter Miles who passed away as we were producing this episode.  A song called Can't We Be Friends performed by him and Dusty Springfield are played at the beginning of this podcast.  What a great lost.  We will miss him.

We also have U.N.I.T. with one of the members, Hawkins, played by Paul Darrow.  Yea!  Allen Wright of the Boldoutlaw.com has a segment where he explains the careers of some of the actors in this serial.

Episode 71: End of Time


The end of an Era on so many levels: Showrunner, Doctor, supporting characters, standard definition.  Rassilon returns, madder as a hatter, and as cross as a crossword puzzle.  He and the Time Lords are locked in a timeless bubble if you will, and for good reason, I might add.  If Rassilon and the Time Lords are released, they will complete their mission, to rid reality and time itself, which the Doctor knew, and that is why he chose to use the Moment.  I know.  Spoilers.  

Ashford and Siskoid discuss the End of Time by Russell T. Davies.  

Ashford mentioned that there is a way to read an early draft about Day of the Doctor, featuring Christopher Eccelson's Doctor before he turned it down.  Please click the link below this sentence.
