In a break from our planned schedule Adam and Not Andi (or Steve as he prefers to be known) take a trip back to the 90s and look at Virgin’s The New Adventure books. They talk about their influence on current Who, favourite authors, misconceptions, violence, swearing and what exactly is the best way to get this unfortunate taste out of their mouths.
Talking Who’s podcasting special, featuring Adam from The Naked Scarf, James from The Doctor Who Podcast, Phil from Who’s He and Laura from The Ood Cast.
Producer Marcus Wilson revealed in the latest Doctor Who Magazine that two classic monsters will return in season seven. And while the Daleks have to be considered almost a dead certainty for one of those two slots, especially considering they had only a very brief cameo in the last series, it’s anyone’s guess what the other monster will be.
Fingers crossed it’s the Ice Warriors. Also I wouldn’t shed a tear if the Daleks had another year off.
Inspired by Alan Moore’s run on DC Comics’ Swamp Thing and armed with new companion Ace, a trouble Dorothy Gale with a dark past who came closer to the Doctor and understanding him than any of his pre-2005 waifs and strays ever had before, script editor Andrew Cartmel began to construct darker, more intense stories that suited the darker, more intense delivery of Sylvester McCoy’s Doctor, the cosmic chessmaster who moved his enemies and allies across the board with an enthusiasm that bordered on callous.
Love the fact that Happiness Patrol is on there.
In this ultra special short edition of The Naked Scarf Adam and Andi have a terrifying glimpse of their future and it involves desperately trying to find more than 5 minutes worth of things to say about The Space Museum despite the fact it features one of Andi’s favourite moments in Doctor Who. This means the following conversation includes Putin, Doctor Who A Capella, over-reactions to the chicken and the egg question, jazz hands and wondering if anyone remembers Time Trax.
Rising from the depths come Adam and Andi to look at this watery Third Doctor story. Hear them express their love for Delgado, Pertwee, sword fights and string vest wearing reptiles. They’ll also tackle such great questions as why Adam is like a kitten in a basket, how subtle is Murray Gold and when will Andi be launching her Don’t Tell The Bride podcast?
While you’re paitently waiting for us to record again (soon my pretties, soon) why not enjoy this Doctor Who related post from Andi’s fashion tumblr.
I like to play a game, which I call ‘How many references to Doctor Who can I shoehorn into my outfit?’.
The cricket jumper I had to haggle for, in a vintage shop in Camden (vintage shops in Camden are always overpriced). I’d been after one for years, but not one of those crappy thin ones they make for ladies every few years; this particular jumper has a lovely thick knit and from the scrawl on the label it seems to have once belonged to a boy called Ryan who probably played actual cricket in it.
For those of you who aren’t up on your old-skool Who, the fifth Doctor (played by Peter Davidson) wears an Edwardian-inspired cricket outfit, complete with jumper.
I also own the sixteen-foot Tom Baker (the fourth Doctor) scarf. That’s my sister in the picture. It drags on the floor and I’m always tripping over it, but it’s amazing and people are constantly trying to steal it.
Finally, behold myself and my gorgeous friend Laura taking a cheesy mirror picture at a gig for my friend’s band, An Axe (if you like Nick Cave-esque retro surf rock, check them out). That’s my Tardis iPhone case. Oh yeah.
