Doctor Who gains another new companion!

I just posted an article in my blog that I thought you would all be interested in.

Recently, we received news that Matt Smith's incarnation of the Doctor on Doctor Who has officially gained a new companion. However, the eleventh Doctor (Smith) isn't the only Timelord currently running around!

For those unaware, Big Finish releases some amazing audio books in which you can follow the adventures of the eighth Doctor (voiced by Paul McGann himself!). In his last audio adventure, the eighth Doctor parted ways with his companion Lucie Miller in the thrilling story To the Death. The next box set adventure to come out will take place immediately after the last story and will be titled Dark Eyes which will be released later this year.

27 Years today!

"Today marks 27 years since the organization was formed."

That is quite an achievement Louis.

It's a while since I posted a Blog item here but I feel i should use this moment to thank Louis for all his hard work through over the years.

I'm sure Louis would be the first to say this isn't just his anniversary and would thank Ken , James and all the Podshock Correspondents during these years - alongside of course - the Subscribers, Readers and Listenners of Podshock.

Keep up the great work Louis as we head towards the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who

Cheers, daveac

Twenty Seven Today

This is what has become an annual posting here on the 18th of June each year… The Gallifreyan Embassy anniversary. Today marks 27 years since the organization was formed. What can I say that I haven't already said in my previous anniversary postings? Yeah, I can't believe so much time has passed… I believe I had said it before. Perhaps these photos that I took last week on the Long Island Raid Road say it all. We have come a long way since 1985. I never thought then that I would see train posters referencing Doctor Who in them as these do for BBC America.

The Bearded Companion Reviews The Daleks

The very fist episode I ever saw was the 2005 episode Dalek. My uncle then introduced me to the world of Doctor Who and I was hooked. For the last few days have tried to watch the first appearance of the Daleks and well here I am.


The Doctor, Susan, Barbra and Ian arrive on a planet that has petrified which sparks The Doctor's intrigue. After a little trick he and the others arrive at the desolate city only to be hunted down by the giant salt shakers. The group slowly dying and fatigued decide to go out to find the drug that will help them. After the Thals help the Daleks make a plan to ambush the Thals. The plans goes well until the Doctor and the group escape. Ian blows the Daleks plan and they manage to join forces to fight the Daleks. The Doctor, Thals and his rag tag group manage to defeat these pepper pots. With the Doctor and allies victorious they journey to the ends of the stars.
