Hot on the heels of part one, part 2 of the Doctor Who Series 12 opener, Spyfall, has just aired in the show’s usual Sunday evening slot.

This week, Christian Cawley, Brian A Terranova, and James McLean discuss the story in-depth, along with a surprising realisation. They consider elements of characterisation, as well as praise the revised approach. There’s also some discussion of the preceding episode, its memorable cliffhanger, and the performance of Sacha Dhawan as the latest incarnation of the Master.

PLUS: why was the sound quality so bad in portions of the last podKast? Christian explains how it had something to do with a pantomime (oh no it didn’t!). ALSO: just how long have we been doing this show?

Doctor Who is back with a bang and a twist with Skyfall, the first episode of a two part story kicking off Series 12. Christian Cawley and Gareth Kavanagh mull it over, with a bit of help from… you!

This podKast is a bit shorter than usual due to the limited schedule and time between the two episodes. However, we’re planning to reconvene with a bit more purpose and some in-depth discussion of the Spyfall story as a whole during the coming week.

In the meantime, hit play on this – and if you’re a regular on our Facebook page, listen out for a mention!

Modern young people running the DWM Time Team, a female Doctor, a new showrunner, with some very different ideas to his predecessor… just what is going on? Why are these things happening?

Well, of course, it’s the next iteration of Doctor Who! But what does having a female Doctor really mean for the show’s future? After all, it’s not up to us, or the BBC, or Chris Chibnall, or even the Doctor herself. It’s up to the viewers…

Christian Cawley, James Baldock and Simon Danes discuss how things might shape up when Doctor Who returns in Autumn 2018.

We’ve had the new showrunner, the new Doctor, and shots of the new TARDIS. So it was about time Doctor Who fans got a flavour of the new logo! But what do you think of it?

Telling you what they think in this week’s podKast with a K are Christian Cawley and James Baldock, who also manage to cover some recent Doctor Who news and go off at some entertaining tangents.

So, there you have it. The mystery is over. The thirteenth Doctor Who is revealed, and it’s a woman. Jodie Whittaker, best known for Broadchurch, is the next incarnation of the Doctor, who has been successfully male since 1963.

Christian Cawley and James McLean offer their thoughts, arguments, and observations regarding this somewhat gimmicky state of affairs.

Christian Cawley and Gareth Kavanagh join in the 13th Doctor speculation, throwing a number of interesting names into the mix. Could it be Luke Treadaway? Game of Thrones‘ Richard Madden? Or is it Kris Marshall?

And is the Phoebe Waller-Bridge story just non-story clickbait? We also find out what Gareth though of Doctor Who Series 10, and his take on the death of Saturday night TV on BBC1…

Shownotes

Doctor Who fandom was plunged into uncertainty this week when Peter Capaldi revealed that when Chris Chibnall takes over the long-running show, he would not be involved. And we also spend a few minutes remembering the late John Hurt, who died on January 25th.

Also, listen out for us working through some technology issues. What do you mean “edit it out?” You listen for our rapport!
