    Episode 49 of Doctor Who: Podshock is now available.

    "Are you sitting comfortably? Good. Then we'll begin."

    Note: We break away from our usual format in this episode for a special roundtable discussion with invited guests from other podcasts and radio shows. Due to the length, we broke this episode into two parts. SPOILER ALERT for those that have not seen the complete 2006 series.

    Doctor Who: Podshock
    Episode 49 - Part 1 & Part 2
    For the Week of the 31st of July 2006

    Running Time: 2:02:04 (Part 1) / 0:40:23 (Part 2)

    In this episode:

    Roundtable Discussion on the 2006 Series with guests Chris Rattray and Ashlee "TripleB" from (Cool) Shite on the Tube, Trevor G from MMM Commentaries, and Paul Wilson from The Whocast join Louis Trapani and Ken Deep for an in depth discussion on the 2006 series of Doctor Who. Plus a recorded segment by Russel Hale from Ramble with Russel.

    In part one of this two part podcast, we summarize our reviews of each episode of the 2006 series including: New Earth, Tooth and Claw, School Reunion, The Girl in the Fireplace, Rise of the Cybermen, The Age of Steel, The Idiot's Lantern, The Impossible Planet, The Satan Pit, Love & Monsters, and Fear Her. We pick up from there with Army of Ghosts and Doomsday in part 2 of this podcast (now available).

    What were the highs and lows of this series? How could it have been better? How does it compare to the 2005 series? Our hopes for the 2007 series, etc.

    Doctor Who: Podshock features the latest Doctor Who news and discussions from both US and UK perspectives. Hosted by Ken Deep and Louis Trapani in the US and James Naughton in the UK, with segments by correspondents in Australia and Canada.

    For last weeks Podcast - 48 - I posted a comment 'How can these Podcasts get any better?'

    I didn't know - but I do now - with a two-parter!

    I'm downloading part 1 as I type this - and the big question - will part 1 end on a cliff-hanger! :-)

    Cheers, daveac

    Oh wow, from just reading the summary alone this sounds totally smashing; especially with all the A-List guest commentators. I can't wait to dig in now...

    I think a lot of the talk about swapping around episodes, dropping episodes and adding episodes wouldn't really tally up with the production realities of the show.

    One less episode wouldn't mean more money for another story but less money overall. Plus the episodes that are suggest for dropping are already fairly inexpsenive ones so I suspect that in a way some of their budget has already gone towards the more expensive episodes. So losing one episode of budget might not just result in that episode being gone but less rather than mroe money for other episodes.

    The series was not only shot out of order but at one point production was being doubled up. "Love and Monsters" was being shot by a seperate unit at the same time that "Impossible Planet/Satan Pit" were being shot. So not shooting "Love and Monsters" would not actually result in any addition production time for any other episode.

    Btw, there definitely will have to be another "double-backed" episode next year with little or no of the Doctor & companion in the story. The production schedule makes this inevitable.

    It was great fun being on the show with everyone, even if I did get dragged away in the middle of the night for making too much noise. I hope everyone enjoys the episode -- my favourite part was in the beginning when they were impersonating me.

    Hey Guys, Enjoyed both parts of Podcast 49, whilst I agree in general with your points about 2 part stories being better, should be more of them etc etc, no-one mentioned Doctor Who is a show for Kids (okay maybe we are Big Kids, who take some of it far too seriously). My children enjoy the good Doctor and so do their friends, they especially like School reunion, the impossible Pit, Idiot's Lantern and Love and Monsters. I was thinking that we should try and get some children's view points on the series, since they are a major part of viewing public and are a key target demographic (NB: if they loose interest perhaps the show will not survive too long). I am sure my son George could give some input with a couple of friends, Magrathea also might give his views (hopefully he has interested friends too). Any other teen or pre-teen listeners/forum members out there with a view point different from us old fogies?

    I was away on vacation when this episode was released, and I'm only now getting to catch up on it (and I have 3 more to go) so sorry for the late commentary:

    1) Great idea - a nice forum. Great to hear Triple B again. I used to be a great fan from the Cool Shite 'cast and when she left, some spark left with her. Though she does turn up now and again...

    2) Louis's comment on his disbelief that the Doctor could fall for Mme Pompadour so quickly - I disagree. (What else is new, eh, Louis?) If you watched "End of the World", you could see a strong and immediate spark between the Doctor and Jabe as well. Given a bit more time, I think he would have added her to his list... though they didn't have as much time as I'm sure either would have liked.

    Great cast. Can't wait for the next few.


    One solid hope is worth a cartload of uncertainties.
