Our surprise guest at the Doctor Who: Podshock live on stage show (episode 141) at Gallifrey 20 (February 2009) was none other than Daphne Ashbrook (1996 Doctor Who movie) who joined Ken Deep, Louis Trapani, and James Naughton on stage along with Doctor Who Producer Phil Collinson and comedian Toby Hadoke.

Doctor Who: Podshock live on stage at Gallifrey 20 recording episode 141 on February 15, 2009. The image is a little blurry and with glare, but note the two Doctor Who: Podshock banners on stage. Also on stage left to right is Doctor Who Producer Phil Collinson, comedian Toby Hadoke, Ken Deep, Louis Trapani, and James Naughton. Kudos to Billy Davis for his help with the banners and this photo.
Okay this is more like it. Or rather it's not like anything on DW before. It's got a lot of color and lights, and a very cool looking jungle and lakes and forests in the background and young people doing things young people do: making mistakes mostly. It's just great.
The Tom Doctor admits he cannot fight Time Lords or rather that he did once and lost. Romana is called home and doesn't want to go...which means...we can probably guess however the angst for these two is welcome and they're not as all powerful as we've been lead to believe.
The story: Well, Andrew Smith, 18 yr old wrote it and...to be honest...the plot is really VERY similar to the inferior (but also enjoyable) SPACE: 1999 episode THE FULL CIRCLE. I kid you not. The Alphans find cavemen that...are really them somehow passed through a time warp. There are many differences but a great deal of similarities. The two stories even filmed, I think, in the exact same parks.
IMagine my surprise that I can't sleep on early Mon morn/ very late SUn night when I noticed at about 2;45 Chiller aired the first STRANGE episode. If the others follow Tom Baker's episode should be on in five or six weeks.
Now that the Doctor Who forums are closing down this month were are all those users heading too? Does anybody know?
