You never expect it… then it happens. That’s the secret of time travel, and in a weird, timey-wimey episode, Christian Cawley and Brian Terranova this week discovered the world of a 1980s #DoctorWho radio show, as a pair of radio hosts (with our names, bizarrely) chatted about their excitement over new Doctor Who star Colin Baker, and the excellent Caves of Androzani episode 3 that they had just watched…

  • The Caves of Androzani

Theme tune by Russell Hugo. Thanks, Russell! Music bed is the property of the BBC, no infringement intended.

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…

In a diverse collection of discussions, this week’s podKast swings from Ripper Street series 3 to Colin Baker’s apparent fall out with Doctor Who Magazine, and largely concludes – thanks to recent comments by Sylvester McCoy – with some in-depth thoughts about what introducing a female Doctor Who would mean to the show and what it might reflect in society.

No, really.

Christian Cawley and Brian A Terranova are your hosts, with tardy boy McLean rolling in late. Students, eh?

Kasterborous PodKast Series 5 Episode 25 Shownotes

The podKast theme tune is by Russell Hugo. It’s good, isn’t it?

Taking a turn away from the usual podKast format this week, we head back in time, not to 2005, but to 1985, and the much-maligned Colin Baker story Timelash.

Over the past week, the Kasterborous team of Christian Cawley, Brian A Terranova and James McLean has watched Timelash (in varying degrees of completion) and they report back now, dear listener, for your interest and entertainment. Could it be that Glen McCoy’s script is, in fact, unfairly derided by fans, desperate to highlight a weak point of an already mixed run of episodes?

For those of you who don’t know, Timelash – this week’s only recommendation – stars Colin Baker and Nicola Bryant as the Doctor and Peri, who find themselves on the planet Karfel were the population are terrorised by the sinister Borad. Guest starring Blake’s 7 star Paul Darrow (currently seen in Contradiction) as the villainous Tekker and including a historical figure in the proceedings, the story has long been lambasted by fans.

PodKast Series 4 Episode 52 introduction by John Guilor. Theme tune this week is the Peter Howell arrangement, which featured on Timelash.

We’re jaw-droppingly delighted to tell you, dear listener, that this week’s Kasterborous podKast (with a “K”) welcomes a very special guest – the Doctor himself, Colin Baker! Editor Christian Cawley spoke to the Sixth Doctor…

Missing episodes – it’s something of a grokking topic for Doctor Who fans. One minute they’re lost, the next they turn up. Indeed, even for the Kasterborous PodKast (with a “K”) we recently unearthed lost…
