After nearly five years, and just before the debut of a new Thirteenth Doctor, hosts Ben McKenzie, John Richards and Petra Elliott return to the original Splendid Chaps Doctor/Theme format to discuss Peter Capaldi and music in Doctor Who! They’re joined by guests Celeste Liddle, Adam Ford and Adam Rudegeair – who also perform music and poetry just for your ears! Join us for Twelve/Music, recorded live at Storyville in Melbourne on Australian “Doctor Eve” – October 7, 2018. If you want to listen to some of the songs we mention this episode (and many more we didn’t have time to talk about), check out Petra’s Spotify playlist. While this Splendid Chaps is just a one-off return, don’t forget Splendid Chaps Productions also makes Night Terrace, an award-winning time travel audio comedy, and Pratchat, a monthly Terry Pratchett book club podcast hosted by Elizabeth Flux and our own Ben McKenzie. You can find out more about them, and listen to all the old episodes of Splendid Chaps, at And do check out Lucas Testro’s great Doctor Who podcast Doctor Who and the Episodes of Death, where a variety of guests defend some of the most derided Doctor Who stories of all time! Chaps Ben McKenzie and David Ashton, plus previous guests Richard Watts, Thomas Caldwell, George Ivanoff and Avril Hannah-Jones have all gone into bat for everything from Time and the Rani to The Krotons.
