We have a mammoth podKast for you this week as Christian Cawley, James McLean and Brian Terranova provide you with a minute-by-minute commentary of 1989 classic The Curse of Fenric, starring Sylvester McCoy and Sophie Aldred.

But we’re not watching the standard four-part edit; rather, we’re “going to the movies” and instead enjoying the special edition, which was included on the 2003 DVD release of the story. Want to join in? Get your DVD loaded up (it’s on Disc 2), and get ready to hit play when we do…

Shownotes Series 6 Episode 18

Theme tune by Russell Hugo.

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?

Whoah yes, former Doctor Who script editor Andrew Cartmel (1987-1989) joins us on the podKast (with a “K”) this week to chat about a new project, Doctor Who Fan Fiction Illustrated!

With Hans Christian Vang as his partner for this exciting new crowdsourcing proposal, Andrew is onboard to further the legendary “Cartmel Masterplan” – the term given to the restoration of mystery and mystique that typified his time on the show.

This week, you won’t find a mysterious time-wimey “Previously on next week’s podKast” sentence to look out for – instead, it should pop up in the next podKast.

Now, if you’re a new listener, you can find us on iTunes!

Now then, the important part: please back Fan Fiction Illustrated at www.indiegogo.com/ffidw – should the project not go ahead, funds will be returned to the backers, so no one is out of pocket.

We weren’t entirely clear with the way in which the chosen funding model works while recording the podKast, but can explain more below.

If enough money is raised to do a smaller print run, that options will be taken. While the goal is to do 1500-2000 units, if enough is raised to do 1000 then that is what will happen. Below this, and Hans will cancel the project. (Note that IndieGoGo offers two funding options, Fixed and Flexible. If the fixed option was used, the project would automatically be cancelled even if enough was gathered to do a smaller print run – so flexible has been selected.)

Everybody wins – but we’re backing Hans and Andrew to produce what promises to be a major new player in the Doctor Who comic strip world!
