Warren has returned from Worldcon, and has tales of Finland, Stockholm and international nerdery to share with Steven, Chris and all you good people before we move to the main event, an interview with author and superfan Steven Hill about Red White and Who: The Story of Doctor Who in America. Years in the making, this weighty tome is a comprehensive look at Doctor Who on North American screens, and leaves no televisual stone unturned. Tune in, why don’t you?

With Warren away at Worldcon this week (where while Doctor Who did not win a Hugo for “The Return of Doctor Mysterio”, Steven did for his work on Uncanny Magazine!), it’s left to Steven and Chris to talk about the first interviews with Jodie Whittaker since her unveiling as the new Doctor, and other sundry items that tend to fill a news list in the middle of August. But the main feature this week is an interview with friend and author Graeme Burk about his upcoming book “Sydney Newman: Head of Drama”!

It’s the dog days of August, and with no new Doctor Who on the horizon for several months, what better way to spend a couple hours of that time with the Three Who Rule as they watch and commentate on “The Android Invasion”, the 1975…er…classic from the Tom Baker era. And while Warren is away in Scandanavia in advance of Worldcon in Helsink next weekend, Chris and Steven update you all with news of a radio appearance by Jodie Whittaker, a bevy of Big Finish news, and several pieces of merchandise you won’t be able to live without! Now let’s all have a ginger beer!
