    iTunes is not compatible for Windows 98 and neither are most other sound file managers these days. Any recommendations on being able to hear this podcast?

    Hi Guys
    I just finished listening to your podcast downunder here in New Zealand.
    Great show!
    I think though you need to do something about the recording quality - there
    were a lot of plosive pops as if the presenters were too close to the
    microphone, or perhaps a wind shield might help?
    Anyway, the new series is going strong down here - Thursday nights at
    7:30pm (although not on one of our main three channels). So there's another
    episode tonight...
    I was a bit ambivalent about the new show to start with - my non-Who
    friends dismiss it as cheesy of course, having not been through the earlier
    series, but I have to say it's definitely in keeping with the spirit of the earlier
    series - funny, a little childish in parts, but with a lot of thought-provoking
    material. Billie Piper isn't popular with my friends, but the whole show is
    growing on me. Initially I thought the new Doctor was just too invincible - he
    never took anything seriously, and seemed to nonchalantly escape from peril,
    but now that we're seeing his backstory regarding the Daleks and the other
    Time Lords (we just saw the Dalek show last week) I'm really beginning to
    enjoy it. The Dalek show was really well done, as it could easily have gone the
    wrong way, and I think fans of previous Dalek implementations will be very
    One of the comments in your podcast was about the return of K-9. I just
    watched the DVD of The Leisure Hive, and listened to the commentary - John
    Nathan-Turner killed off K-9 because he was a nightmare to operate, cost a
    bomb, and was an easy way for the Doctor to get out of scrapes, so who
    knows if he'll be back?
    Anyway, great show, looking forward to the next one

    Your discussion on the reasons for Doctor Who not being shown on Sci-Fi were
    interesting, but omitted one major one, and that is that Sci-Fi likes to "own" the
    programs it broadcasts, or rather showcases. It looks like they want to control
    the rights to maximize their profit. If they have to pay what they may feel is too
    much for the series, then they will pass. Then again, it would probably be a
    mistake for the Beeb to relinquish that sort of control.
