Running Time: 1:44:51

We review all 10 Doctor's eras of Doctor Who in this Deca-Doctor Special of Doctor Who: Podshock. As we approach the new 11th Doctor era, we review where we came from with the previous 10. Included are interviews we conducted over the years with various actors to play the Doctor (including Patrick Troughton, Jon Pertwee, Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy, Paul McGann), some of which have never been featured on Doctor Who: Podshock before.

The 8th Doctor and his 'Company of Friends'


To make up for having to miss out on going to meet the man himself at Chicago TARDIS, I settled instead for the pleasure of listening to the recent Big Finish 8th Doctor audio – “The Company of Friends”. And a real delight it was too (more details on that below!). While listening to it, I marveled at the breadth of “friends” (or companions) that the 8th Doctor has accumulated, across a wide range of mediums. In fact, all told, it is possible that the 8th Doctor may have had more companions (15, by my rough count) than any other incarnation! This is all the more astonishing given the brevity of his television appearances – about 50-55 minutes of a 90-minute TV movie.

Richard Todd Dies at Age 90

Richard Todd as SandersDoctor Who fans will kinda remember Richard Todd for his part as Sanders in the 1982 Peter Davison story, Kinda. Though for others, this real life war hero will be remembered for roles in such films as The Dam Busters (1955) and the Yangtse Incident (1957).

Todd, who had been fighting cancer, has died at the age of 90. He had been one of the first British soldiers to parachute into France on D-Day.

He has a long list of credits with film and television roles as early as 1937 to as recent as 2007. 

Video: Christmas on BBC and The End of Time Christmas Promo (fan-edit)

David Tennant: "…Nothing I say can really help him."

Reader's Digest David Tennant CoverREADER'S DIGEST EXCLUSIVE:
David Tennant has nothing to say to Matt Smith

David Tennant has admitted he has "nothing to say" to new Time Lord, Matt Smith.

Tennant told Reader's Digest, in an exclusive interview for the December issue, that he'd spoken to his successor several times "but there's nothing to say. I think we both thought we'd be able to exchange lots of ideas. But actually it's none of my business how Matt does it and nothing I say can really help him."

Talking about his final foray as the Doctor in this year's Christmas special, Tennant says "This year we've done something different. It is still set in Christmas, but it's perhaps not got quite as much, er…Christmas cheer as before." Tennant adds that come Christmas Day he'll be watching his own send off. "Just to enjoy the moment. It's my last Doctor Who – it will be nice to witness that."
