    Thanks... I was up all night last night (morning) to get it out. Since it is basically a Doomsday based episode of Doctor Who: Podshock, so I wanted to get it out there before it got too dated.

    The irony about the web server crisis is that in the same week we had caught up with podcasts so that new episodes would not be so delayed in getting out, and then the mess with the server happened and delayed the next podcast. Sigh. Sometimes you just can't win.

    Thanks again.

    Cheers,
    Louis

    Yes, good job Louis in getting it out. I regret that my duties with my own podcast prevented me from joining you guys for that recording. Darn Pirates movie runnign so long. It was a great episode and hopefully sometime in the near future I can share my thoughts with all you Podshock listeners. If you want a preview you can alwsys listen to epiosde 12 of the Whocast where I talk about it with Paul Wilson.

    Cheers,
    Russel

    Louis, excellent job on getting the show out.
    As a reward for yourself, I propose the following:
    Take a week off of work, take a week off of podshock, stay in your pajamas, and WATCH YOUR STAR TREK TNG DVDS!
    What a week that would be. 7 seasons in 7 days. It can be done.

    Just found this podcast. Been listening to it on the bus to work when I am not writing stuff for my various audio series. I really enjoyed what I've been hearing. Nice to hear what people think about Doctor Who, who are really fan of the series.

    Take care

    I have downloaded and will listen on the way to work tomorrow and I can't wait! New Podshock and if I have the time the latest episode of Erics Doctor Who story.

    For those of you who haven't discovered them Darker Projects put out some of the best Doctor Who audio plays in podcast type (downloadable) format. Great White North was great and Zero Tolerance sounds like it will be even better.

    Everybody who is a fan of Doctor Who audio plays should give them a listen.

    Louis, I have a couple of matchsticks with your name on them that will be just right for keeping your eyes open and I believe the Doctor has a nice pair of glasses if the light is too strong. Cool

    Forget the shooty dog thing!

    I was checking out the Big Finish webpages for the CDs 86 and 87 that you talked about in the podcast. They have to be a cross-over story of some kind. There is a character that appears in both. Peri has a friend, Katherine Chambers in 1984 and so does Tegan in 2006. They are both played by the same acress, Jane Perry. Both episodes are also written by the same person, Joseph Lidster, and directed by the same person, Gary Russell.

    Based on everyone's recommendations, I am going to try listening to other Big Finish audios (other than only the Paul McGann ones). I'm currently listening to Axis of Insanity with Peter Davison.

    I'm going "Full Circle" and putting my avatar back to what it was when I first joined. :)

    GWN was one of the first audios we ever did.... We got a lot better along the way. We tend to focus on more original productions these day. I have take my love for Doctor Who and focused it into an original series called The Byron Chronicles.

    I was tossing over an idea for doing a series of stand alone audios called Doctor Who - Past Present and Future. In which we could do a series of stand alone stories. With a lot of other actors playing the Doctor in different and new settings. Sort of like Unbound but set for the fan medium.

    I have one story with David Ault playing the Doctor (Who also plays Byron in the Byron Chronicles) in pre-production. But I am still looking for writers and actors to do more.

    As for Podshock. It's a lot of fun listening to what other think about Doctor Who. I live out in Portland, Oregon where at times I feel like I'm the only one who even know about the series. It's funny I'll go into Border or something and see a vast area of Star Trek/Star Wars novels.

    And maybe if I'm lucky.... Very lucky... four Doctor Who books. And I've probably read them all. Like I said, funny but also very sad. *sigh*

    nitpick....hey guys, listened since about i think podshock 25 or so , love the show. One nitpick that after hearing 47 i thought i'd chime in on since you've brought it up a couple times, with the whole Torchwood 'overuse' and the reinvention of dr who conventions for the new show. the one fundamental difference with Torchwood and UNIT is those two little letters, U.N. ...Torchwood is explicitly founded and talked about many many times in the show as being purely anglo-centric, so i think there's no real 'cannon' reason why both aren't around.

    I forget where I read it, but apparently the United Nations is no longer letting them use the "United Nations" brand (for lack of a better term) in Doctor Who. I wonder if the reason we're not seeing more of UNIT is it would be too hard to explain what it is without calling it the United Nations Intelligence Taskforce. I wonder if they could refer to it as simply the U.N. Intelligence Taskforce. I for one always hoped to see other branches of UNIT besides the UK branch.

    Theoretically, Torchwood could have been poaching talent away from the UK branch of UNIT over the years. Maybe that's where Sgt. Benton ended up. Smile

    If the Doctor ever ran into members of unit they could easily identify themsleves as the UK branch of UNIT and just leave it at that.

    Which would be fine for those of us who have been watching the show for decades. But what about the people who just started watching Doctor Who last year? They've had UNIT people on the new show once or twice but without ever really explaining who they were. I think that was more of a nod to the old fans. If the Doctor were to really interact with anyone from UNIT, though, the writers would have to explain to the new audience exactly what UNIT is.

    Ahhh, newbies. Don't get me wrong, but I really don't understand why we have to act as though Doctor Who has never existed before 2005. I know they want to draw in a new audience, but some of us have been with the series for decades. I think for the most part, if a newbie sees something they are not sure about, they will just gloss it over themselves or actually go look into it. Maybe they might even discover the older episodes and get interested in those as well? Hmm, yea I'm on a soapbox. Sorry everyone, unless anyone agrees with me then I mean every word of it. Wink
