Download MP3

As we hurtle towards Christmas, and more importantly, the premiere of “Twice Upon A Time”, the BBC has delivered a snippet of said story featuring one Peter Capaldi, David Bradley and Mark Gatiss trading badinage in Twelve’s TARDIS, and it is a delight. Also, Steven Moffat was announced to appear at the biggest Doctor Who convention in North America, Gallifrey One, to the general giddiness of the Three Who Rule. Besides all this news, we also have the second part of Warren’s interview with director Rachel Talalay, along with a look at one her stories for our final Second Chances segment with comedian and writer Riley Silverman!

There’s nothing Doctor Who-ish on TV until Christmas…but there is an hour with debonair man of the 1970s, Jon Pertwee, who graces the BBC iPlayer with an hour of his many charms in the imaginatively named “An Hour with Jon Pertwee!” There’s also movement afoot in things game, textual and action dolly, with Big Finish going (even more) digital, A Parliament worth of Dalek Dollies and possibly the premature end of LEGO Dimensions. Our Second Chances this week also marks the end of the Monk Trilogy as Drew Meyer joins us to look at “The Lie of the Land!”

We have a long time to wait for new Who (not counting Peter Capaldi’s swan song this Christmas) but already rumors are swirling about how incoming showrunner Chris Chibnall will give us his vision of the good Doctor. In the meantime, we have DVDs headed our way along with an animated version of Shada, the red-headed stepchild of not-quite-lost classic Who stories. And this week’s Second Chances features author and Reality Bomb podcaster Graeme Burk, with his (and our) look at…”The Pyramid at the End of the World”!

Warren returns to the fold this week, to examine both various dribs and drabs of Doctor Who news and to debate amongst the Three Who Rule as to the worth of the new Star Trek: Discovery series. What would a podcast between three nerds be without spurious Trek talk, you ask? Well, it would be a podcast with pop culture reporter Edie Nugent taking a look at Series 10’s space-set not-zombie nail-biter, “Oxygen,” in our Second Chances series!
