Celebrating Time And Relative Dimensions In Space!
Over the years on Doctor Who: Podshock we often in our news segments had the unfortunate duty of relaying to our listeners the passing of people connected to Doctor Who. It's unavoidable being the long history of the series, now well over a half a century old and going. What is not common is having to announce the passing of one us. A fellow fan. A listener. A contributor. Today is one of those times.
It is with much sadness that I inform our listeners of a passing of a regular guest host on our show, Taras Hnatyshyn. Earlier this week we lost Taras after a long illness. Before becoming a regular guest host and a moderator here on our site, Taras was a long time listener and contributor to our show. His enthusiasm and excitement for all things Doctor Who was unparalleled and often contagious
Taras knew his stuff. He had an encyclopedia knowledge of Doctor Who. He could tell you which episode a character was last seen in and when they first appeared and probably how episodes they were showed up in between. He was a great resource any time we had the delight and privilege of having him record with us.
We are one day away from the release of the 2017 series of Doctor Who. Regardless whether or not you choose to classify this as Series 10 or by the original numbering, one thing remains constant - The Doctor returns TOMORROW. And, unless Moffat throws us for a proverbial loop, the Doctor will be joined by a new companion, Bill, and the returning Nordole.
The upcoming set of episodes may prove to be Peter Capaldi’s defining moments as The Doctor. Here is what we know so far:
Discussing Who will be attending WHOLanta during May 05-07, 2017, marking the first time face-to-face meeting of two Doctor Who: Podshock hosts, myself and Lee Shackleford!
