This week’s show is a PropKast featuring Brian A Terranova telling us about how he and a group of prop enthusiasts built their own RTD-era sonic screwdriver.

Tying in nicely with our RTD era sonic screwdriver PDF, Brian tells Christian Cawley how prop makers put their heads together, pooled resources, and built their own sonic screwdrivers.

As if all that wasn’t enough, there’s even some chat about how the Star Wars fan community discovered how a lightsaber prop changed during Return of the Jedi. You’ll also learn what a “Hero Prop” is, assuming you don’t already know…

Don’t forget to follow us on Twitter: look for @kasterbeyond for show updates, interesting retweets, and wry observations about Doctor Who and other favorite shows.

While you’re there, especially on iTunes, 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’ll probably give your review a shoutout, too!

Welcome to the first of our special PropKast podcasts, in which James McLean and Brian A Terranova discuss props in TV and movies. To kick off, the focus is mainly on Doctor Who props, specifically those that have been reused across serials or found in other shows.
