We’re back with another podcast, taking a look at the recent developments in the Doctor Who fan community during lockdown.

Join your hosts Christian Cawley, James McLean, and Brian Terranova as they look at tweetalongs and other ways Doctor Who fans can deal with enforced downtime.


Take care out there, Kasterborites – we’ll be back soon.

Comic cons, book launches, interviews in Radio Times – former Doctor Who Christopher Eccleston is everywhere right now, opening up and talking honestly for the first time ever. So it should come as no surprise that this brand new Kasterborous PodKast is almost entirely about him.

Oh, and Brian A. Terranova – he’s back as well. So scratch that tribute episode, yeah?

In the coming weeks we have a load of new podcasts and other content set to come your way. There’s a brief allusion to this in the show, but speaking generally, Brian and Christian have recorded a bunch of new shows, and new blog content is set to come along soon too. Among the things you can look forward to are a new BeyondKasterborous, a PropKast, and a short discussion about the new site.


Don’t forget you can follow us on Twitter @kasterbeyond!

Meanwhile, as well as playing the Kasterborous PodKast above, you can find us on:

…and most of the places you’ll find podcasts.

While you’re there, please take the time to leave a review. It doesn’t have to be a five star review – we’d appreciate your honesty! But it’s really important to get in touch with podcasters and let them know what you think. You can, of course, drop us a line via Facebook, which we always welcome, but ratings and reviews on iTunes, Spotify, and the like, really help us to reach more listeners.

After all, that’s why we’re here – to share our thoughts with as many people as possible. As ever, thanks for listening, and we’ll speak to you again soon.

We’re back with a chat about the current Doctor Who news, covering Christopher Eccleson’s memoir, Chris Chibnall’s recent SFX interview, and the release of the title of Doctor Who Series 11 Episode 2… No trailer reaction, as we recorded this before its release!

Your host this week is Christian Cawley, accompanied by James Baldock, and Simon Danes.

This week’s podcast looks at recent Doctor Who news, including the sale of a William Hartnell script, the audio reunion of Torchwood, new location shoots in Sheffield, and Russell T Davies’ reaction to Christopher Eccleston’s recent comments concerning his departure from Doctor Who in 2005. PLUS a look at the controversy surrounding the new DWM Time Team…

With James Baldock and Christian Cawley.


We bring our occasional series of Doctor Who kommentaries into the 21st century this week with Rose, Christopher Eccleston and Billie Piper’s first appearance in NuWho’s debut episode from March 26th, 2005.

Inspired by our recent discussions about the late McCoy era, and with the obvious comparisons with the setting of Survival (another story set in a London suburb), we decided to return to Russell T Davies’ triumphant re-introduction to everyone’s favourite Time Lord. What would Christian, Cawley, James McLean, and Brian A Terranova be inspired to observe and discuss?

Hit play to find out…

Shownotes Series 6 Episode 20

  • Rose, Doctor Who Series 1

Cool new theme tune by Russell Hugo!

In a lull between kommentaries (we’ve a new one for you next week) Brian, James and Christian discuss recent Marvel movies, the Doctor’s place in the Marvel comics universe, Captain America’s Hydra revisionism and how the producers of Doctor Who could do the same thing with the Doctor — or have they already?

PLUS: Christian and Brian talk 1980s action figures.

Shownotes Series 6 Episode 17

Theme tune by Russell Hugo.

Christian Cawley and James McLean talk Doctor Who storyboards from The Day of the Doctor, speculate on the 13th Doctor’s identity, mull over the similarities between Capaldi and Colin Baker’s Doctors, and tantilise you with…

Yay, it’s podKast time! This week, Christian Cawley and Brian A Terranova open the anniversary discussion, remembering Doctor Who Series 1 and mulling over the first 7 episodes, from Rose through to The Long Game….

Wow, so much to get through in this week’s podKast, from Peter Capaldi’s first Doctor Who photoshoot to missing episodes – stopping off at the fascinating topic of “was John Hurt cast to replace Christopher Eccleston or not?” on the way.

The podKast team of Christian Cawley, Brian Terranova and James McLean have an interesting hour of discussion for you, and just because we love you, dear listener, we’ve left in a segment in which Christian and James BOTH dry up, with hilarious consequences!

We also have a nice collection of recommendations for you, from Wiffle Lever to Full by Bob Fischer to The Beginning from Big Finish.
