Welcome, ladies and gentlemen of Kasterborous to another podKast (with a K) which this week features Christian Cawley, James McLean and Brian A Terranova! The Kasterborous podKast team will be discussing, of course, The Impossible…

Who am I? The alien wanderer… the clown with a ruthless streak… the melancholy Time Lord trying to avoid returning home? Throw in a bag of jelly babies, a robot dog, some very attractive companions…

To celebrate the release of the famous “incomplete” #DoctorWho classic Shada, Christian Cawley, James Baldock and Simon Danes take a look at the new version, and compare it with its predecessors…

…and ask the question: is Shada actually any good? And was Douglas Adams really “all that”? We also touch upon the 1992 version, the 2003 version from Big Finish and BBCi, as well as the Gareth Roberts novelization.

Oh, and look out for the story of a young Simon Danes writing to Christopher “Skagra” Neame…

Shownotes:

We took a week off, but Christian Cawley, James McLean and Brian A Terranova are back to mull over some recent Doctor Who news, from the Moffat/Barrowman Torchwood revival spat to Tom Baker in Star Wars, and standing on a roof naked.

No, really.

On this week’s podKast, Christian Cawley and James McLean discuss 10 reasons why new Doctor Who star Peter Capaldi is going to be awesome.

The podKast team really think it’s time to share the love for a man who is possibly one of the most accomplished performers to take the role (he’s got an Oscar, you know!) and in light of the noisy naysayers with their shallow ageist attitude, the fightback starts right here.

We also spend a few moments discussing the Fourth Doctor, with news that both Matthew Waterhouse and Tom Baker are interested in reuniting in a Big Finish drama, and that Tom’s Doctor tops the eBay Doctor Who merchandise sales chart.

Along with our recommendations, we’ve also got an impassioned plea from Christian who is exasperated by the actions of certain fans looking for nude photos of Jenna Coleman and Karen Gillan…

As for Brian Terranova – well, who knows where he got to…

The Kasterborous PodKast theme tune is arranged by Russell Hugo. Slowly…

Well, here we are, dear listener. A day later than intended, the podKast is now available. You can blame the people who claim to administer our servers for the delay of your fix of weekly…
