Rob Irwin has been a Doctor Who fan since the 1980s and has dipped in and out of fandom over that time, being a member of local and international clubs, editing his own fanzine, and in more recent years, producing a Doctor Who podcast.
Following the popularity of our PRIMARY SOURCES episodes since they started dropping late in 2020 - particularly their 20 minute run-time - the Doctor Who Show is unveiling a new monthly show with a similar short format. Doctor Who fans love lists. Are we right? The List Makers will see the guys take a topic each month that involves creating a Top 5 list. They will then run through their lists, with minimal interruption to each other, then have an open discussion of both lists. It's all about the chat! If you like this format, write in and let us know. Suggestions for future lists to be drawn from The Hat of Rassilon are also welcome; get in touch! Twitter, Facebook or email us old-school style at hello@thedwshow.net
Welcome to the seventh episode of the podcast we’re dropping on the feed every month in between our regular monthly shows. These are short (20 minute-ish) shows where Rob sits down with a guest and reads letters – the primary sources of the title – about Doctor Who from the 80s and 90s, for the purpose of kick-starting a conversation. Vitally, the guest doesn’t know anything about the content of the letters until the recording. In this episode, Rob talks to co-host of the most excellent Sirens of Audio podcast, Dwayne Bunney! This is Doctor Who without a safety net. The conversations could go anywhere the guest wants them to go. This is Primary Sources.
In early March Rob and Dave ran a Twitter poll to tell them what season of Doctor Who they should talk about in the episode at the end of that month; the very episode you are about to listen to now. The choices were Season Six (1968/69); Season 11 (1973/74); Season 14 (1976/77); and the David Tennant era specials (2009/10). 140 votes were cast, with Season 6 winning on 37.9% of the vote. After a brief discussion of the season, including thoughts on the TARDIS team and the general chaos behind the scenes, the guys then give their thoughts on each individual story, before a summary at the end, tackling whether the season works overall. What are your thoughts on it? The Dominators The Mind Robber The Invasion The Krotons The Seeds of Death The Space Pirates The War Games Hope you enjoy the episode!
