After seeing it on the big screen, how does the original 6 episode version compare? What makes this one of the, if not THE greatest Doctor Who story ever? And why can't Harry jump over a clam? All that and more . . .
Fascist Brig with a toady Benton? Liz as an methodical bureaucrat? The Doctor has landed in an alternate universe, but both Earths are in peril. Star turns by UNIT regulars playing different roles make for one of the great Third Doctor stories.
Cybermen invade the Moon, but Ben, Polly, Jamie and the Doctor are there to meet them. It takes all of Polly's feminine know-how (nail varnish remover) and social skills (Coffee, anyone?) to find the source of their power and defeat them. A great 2nd Doctor story, with animation of the missing episodes.
Back to the beginning, to Susan and the Doctor, Ian and Barbara exploring what it means to travel together in the TARDIS -- which communicates with the travelers for the first time. Join us for this first "bottle" episode in Doctor Who history.
Bantering, lots of bantering. And laughing in the face of danger. And jokes. lots and lots of jokes. But Clara has been promised a trip to meet her "hero," and she intends to meet Robin Hood.

The Doctor and Winston Churchill are old friends, and Winston has a secret weapon in his War Rooms. Moffat pairs again with Mark Gatiss to bring another "celebrity historical" to the screen. Does it really work this time?
Another Celebrity Historical! This time -- Shaolin Monks, Queen Victoria and a Werewolf! It's a romp in the Highlands, and the stuff Whovian dreams are made of. The Doctor name drops a former companion, the very companion snogged by the actor to whom the Doctor drops the name! And if that makes sense (or even if it doesn't) this is the podcast for you!
Charles Dickens in Cardiff for Christmas. It's the first historical of the New Era and penned by Mark Gatiss to boot. Simon Callow brings his expertise (and his acting chops) to playing Dickens, and the Doctor and Rose are on hand for hijinx with ghosts. What more can a Who fan ask?
Eighth Doctor fans rejoice! We are back to Big Finish's wonderful range of 8th Doctor stories with our discussion of "Sword of Orion." And Charley Pollard! And OldWho gushes about Nicholas Briggs.
"Welcome, Campers, Welcome!" The Doctor and Mel are off to a Welsh holiday camp in the 1950s. Motorbikes, Rock and Roll and green babies! Sylvester McCoy is enigmatic and getting darker, and there are open auditions for companion.
Satire of Thatcher's Britain or creepily prescient political docu-drama? We talk Reality TV, torture as entertainment and where the lines blur. It's Sixxie's Doctor Who and it's weird and wonderful.

A mission to Mars in peril. The Doctor, the Brig and Liz are on the scene to find the missing astronauts, defeat the bad guys, and face down a couple of "G's" in the process. We also discuss GMW fave, Liz Shaw in this week's Companion File.
