    Show Notes

    Okay, just last week in Podshock Episode 6 we stated we would make the shows shorter... Well, we are finding that it is easier said than done. This episode (#7) weighs in at 1 hour and 6 minutes. But it is packed to the rim with content! :o)

    Chris did a wonderful segment reviewing the same book that James reviewed last week. It is a different take on the same book, so we are sure you will enjoy the two perspectives. Look forward to more segments from our Australian correspondent in the future Podshock episodes. Great work Chris!

    More show notes to come (soon)...

    I like the new non-extreme-stereo sound. It's much more natural.

    The reverb (if it was added) isn't needed, I think, unless that was the actual accoustics.

    In general this episode sounded a lot better on my ears than previous ones where sounds came from the extreme left and right (with the exception of James, who seemed to get the center spot.)

    Nice work. And the content was good too. I didn't much like "The Mind Robber" myself, though, as the whole 1960s psychadelic genre was never to my liking.

    Like the last episode of "The Prisoner" or like many "Avengers" episodes, this was just a lot of silly things happening.

    Still, I've only gotten through half-way so far, and I'll pick up the rest soon, to see if it picks up.

    I have to say that the second review of "Clockwise Man" was a bit harsher on it than I think it deserved. But as I haven't read a lot of original Doctor Who fiction (mostly the novelizations of actual episodes) I didn't have much to compare it to. Still, I'm about five chapters in to "Monsters Inside" and so far, "Clockwise Man" is far superior.

    A warning to those who read DOctor Who to their kids. "Monsters Inside" has Rose saying the word "*censored*" twice in one chapter. It gets a little ugly in the prison too, so beware if you're planning on reading this to young kids.

    I was reading it to my 9-year-old daughter, who just LOVES the new series, and I was a bit shocked when I came across those instances. I had to hold off on reading it to her for a while until I read the rest of it to see if there's more nasty prison behavior.

    Can't wait for the next episode, guys. Keep up the good work! And thanks for ditching the extreme stereo!


    One solid hope is worth a cartload of uncertainties.

    Just a nitpick... Janet Fielding's name is misspelled in your show notes. Fielding, not Feilding.
