Revolution of the Daleks
What better way to kick off 2021 than watching Donald Trump and Theresa May unleashing a sexy new breed of Dalek upon the British voting public? It’s a good day for squid, explosions and farewells on Revolution of the Daleks. Many thanks to Johnny Spandrell for his sudden guest appearance on this episode. You can find all his writings on Doctor Who at Random Whoness. You can see Brendan’s video review of this episode here, but you’re probably better off subscribing to his YouTube channel, particularly with the imminent rebirth of his series Say Something Nice.

The Timeless Children
This week, five hitherto unknown incarnations of the Doctor will be strapping you to a chair and shouting at you for half an hour about their fan theories about the origins of the Time Lords. Until you’re willing to admit that — in a very real sense — we are all the Timeless Children. Brendan’s final Walk to Work with Whittaker for the time being can be found here. Follow the Randomiser at @dwrandomiser on Twitter, and send your thoughts about the Christopher Eccleston series to @brandybongos. And we’ll see you next year.

Ascension of the Cybermen
In this week’s episode of Where the hell is Beryl Reid?, a group of five humans facing imminent catastrophe band together to talk nonsense about the latest episode of their favourite TV show. The Cybermen make their traditional end-of-series appearance, of course, and so there’s an outrageous amount of stomping involved, as usual. You can follow Karen on Twitter at @ladgygaymatisse. And here’s a link to the relevant episode of Brendan’s A Walk to Work with Whittaker.

The Haunting of Villa Diodati
It’s Wednesday night, so we’re hanging out with some lovely drug-addled literary types and re-enacting all our favourite scenes from Castrovalva, all the while trying to ignore the urgent clanking sounds coming from the downstairs parlour. Welcome to The Haunting of Villa Diodati. Brendan’s take on this episode can be found on his way home from work for a change, which is nice. Many thanks to Steven for his surprise guest appearance. You can hear more from him on our favourite Doctor Who podcast, New to Who. Like and subscribe.

Can You Hear Me?
In this week’s flashcast episode, we spend a cathartic twenty-five minutes talking about all our deepest hopes and fears, but no one is listening because of the fingers stuck in our ears. Question marks at the ready, everyone — it’s Can you hear me? Brendan dons his best shirt to chat to us about this episode in his most recent episode of A Walk to Work with Whittaker. You can hear more from the fabulous Adam Richard on his daily podcast Adam Richard Has a Theory, in which he gets to explain his theories about Doctor Who and Star Trek: Picard without Rove McManus spraying him with a water bottle.
Feb 4, 2020
This week, Peter is off to Peru to cockblock two travel vloggers, Brendan and Nathan fly to Hong Kong to reunite two estranged lovers, and Todd heads to Madagascar to drag some poor guy out of the water for some reason. And we’re all wearing plastic face masks, of course, so that we don’t come down with Praxeus. Brendan’s rather moist take on this episode can be found, as always, on his YouTube Channel.

Fugitive of the Judoon
This week, we discuss one of those fairly standard Judoon-based romps that have been a feature of mid-season Doctor Who for as long as any of us can remember. Nothing out of the ordinary here: it’s Fugitive of the Judoon. Brendan discusses this episode in his most recent episode of A Walk to James’s to Record the Podcast with Whittaker, which you can find here.

Nikola Tesla’s Night of Terror
This week, we head back to the start of the twentieth century to meet a terrifyingly handsome Great Man of History and to see what Grandpa Salateen has been up to since that messy business on Androzani Minor. It’s the best Doctor Who episode title since Rider from Shang-Tu — Nikola Tesla’s Night of Terror. Brendan’s breathless first take on this episode can be found here. Flight Through Entirety is taking a break right now, but if you want to hear our somewhat more considered opinions on every Doctor Who story from 1963 to 2007, head on over to our website.
Jan 14, 2020
This week, we try to take our minds off the impending collapse of Australia’s entire ecosystem by tuning in to Doctor Who’s latest entertaining romp, Orphan 55. Looks like we’re in for some fun! You can find 180 episodes of slightly more well-considered takes on the first twenty-nine series of Doctor Who on our parent podcast Flight Through Entirety, with more to come this March. Brendan’s take on this story can be found in the third episode of A Walk to Work with Whittaker. While you’re there, take a look at the rest of his YouTube channel.

Spyfall, Part Two
This week, we spend most of our time larking around with computer scientists and Nazis, oblivious to the serious moral issues of wiping people’s memories, betraying villains to the Nazis, and using your mum as a hard drive to store all your backup nudes. It’s Spyfall, Part Two. You can catch our more well-considered Doctor Who takes over at Flight Through Entirety, of course, where we have discussed every broadcast Doctor Who story until the end of 2007. You can also catch Brendan’s bracing and optimistic outdoor takes on Series 12 on his YouTube channel.

Spyfall, Part One
This week, the stakes are high as Nathan, James, Brendan, Peter and Todd don their tuxes, spy on a sinister tech billionaire, fight deadly glowing aliens, and get a big surprise… It’s Spyfall, Part One. Over on Flight Through Entirety, we’ve just reached the end of Series 3 of the New Series, and there are a couple of Christmas presents under the tree as well with Time Crash and our commentary on Voyage of the Damned. We’ll be back before too long with our coverage of Series 4. Here’s where you can find Brendan’s Series 11 Reviews retrospective video.
Jan 2, 2019
This week, Nathan, Brendan, Todd and James assemble an entire Doctor Who flashcast out of long-forgotten odds and ends and unleash another scorching hot take upon an unsuspecting internet. It’s the first and only new episode of Doctor Who in 2019 — Resolution (of the Daleks). Over on Flight Through Entirety, you can catch some of our more lukewarm takes on the entirety of the Classic Series, as well as our coverage of the Christopher Eccleston Era and the first Doctor Who seasonal special, The Christmas Invasion. We’ll be back later in the year with our coverage of Series 2. It’s been fun. Thanks for all your feedback. We’ll see you again next year.

It Takes You Away

It’s all about frogs, but does it have legs? It’s Episode 9 of Series 11 – It Takes You Away. Meanwhile, over at Flight Through Entirety we’ve recently reached the end of the Christopher Eccleston era of Doctor Who and there are rumours that we may actually release our commentary on Enlightenment some time this century.
