About This List

There are so many to choose from, these are my favourites.
  1. A Doctor Who Podcast
  2. Paul and Tim review Doctor Who's missing episodes.
  3. Radio Free Skaro is possibly the most popular, most prolific and charmingly irreverent (but never irrelevant) Doctor Who podcast around. Since August 2006, hosts Warren (in Vancouver, BC) and Steven (in Edmonton, AB) have provided listeners with their brand of amusing Doctor Who praise and punishment. A year later, Chris (also in Edmonton, AB) was added to the team, and The Three Who Rule were born. Recommended by Doctor Who Magazine, Radio Free Skaro provides an entertaining and diverting listen for the diehard or casual Doctor Who fan. New episodes usually appear on Sundays, following a loose magazine format of the three hosts discussing the news and events of the past week in the worlds of Doctor Who, Torchwood, and the Sarah Jane Adventures. They have also recorded special commentary podcasts for classic series and new series episodes of Doctor Who along with interviews of some of the brightest of the Doctor Who luminaries. Radio Free Skaro is also the official podcast of Gallifrey One, the world’s largest and longest-running annual Doctor Who convention.

  5. All of time and space. Everywhere and anywhere. Every star that ever was. Where do you want to start? Join Mark, Iain and some fantastic guests for the trip of a lifetime through all of Doctor Who.

  8. We are Ross, a long time fan of Doctor Who, and Victoria, a relatively new convert to the show. We bring unique, informed perspectives to our experience and enjoyment of Doctor Who. Each podcast covers a Doctor Who television story and includes a story synopsis, review and discussion of where each fits in the Doctor Who Universe. Future episodes will cover all the media in that Universe, including audio plays, books and comics.
  9. Strangers in Space: once a month, for sixty minutes*, J.R. Southall, Lee Rawlings, Simon Brett and Matt Barber talk about Doctor Who so you don't have to (*times may vary) Desert Planet Picks: once a week (or so), a special guest chooses the eight items they'd take with them, if they were about to be marooned on a desert planet Film Club: once a month, the Strangers in Space review and contextualise a popular movie Film Club International: once a month, (some of) the Strangers in Space review and contextualise an international movie
  10. The Who's He? Podcast, a monthly Doctor Who review show hosted by Phil Cannon and Paul Connor in which they chat about all things Doctor Who including reviews of the latest episodes to hit our screens, along with news, DVD's, books, audio stories and the occasional audio commentary for good measure!
  11. Mostly Harmless Cutaway podcast hosted by Eric, Josh, and Cat + often featuring Sean, Kat, Kyle, Chris, Erik, and Erika. If it's happening in the Doctor Who universe we're talking about it. Essential companion listening for those familiar with some other popular Doctor Who podcasts. If you were ever looking for a laid back show that doesn't take much seriously you've finally come home.
