Enhanced Podcast Features and Tandem With The Random

How do you listen to audio podcasts? Are you taking advantage of the features of the enhanced podcast format? In other words, accessing the chapters, embedded images and links? The reason I am asking is because all signs point to the fact that Apple is phasing this format out. Their latest Podcast app doesn't seem to support it. Oh, it will play fine, and it will still sound better than the plain mp3 version, but the aforementioned features are absent. Also their latest version of GarageBand has removed the tools to create those features for enhanced podcasts.

Baker Follows Baker

Fourth Doctor

Late last night Big Finish felt confident enough to announce that Tom Baker would be following Colin Baker into Big Finish Audio, as the Doctor. For months it has been a sort of conformation, with Big Finish it's self and more appropriately Nick Briggs himself not wanting to say anything, as dealing in the past had only been a source of spot by Tom.

The details are as follows, "Tom Baker will be playing the Fourth Doctor in a number of audio adventures for Big Finish, to be released from the beginning of 2012. Storylines and scripts are already at an advanced stage, and we plan to start recording early in the summer."

R.I.P. The Brigadier, Nicholas Courtney Dies at Age 81

It is with great sadness and a very heavy heart, that I report the passing of Nicholas Courtney,  best known for his role as the Brigadier. 

He was first seen in Doctor Who as Bret Vyon a security agent in the 12 part "The Daleks Master Plan" Later taking up the Role of Colonel Lethbridge Stewart in "The Web of Fear" and then comming back one year later as Brigadier Lethbridge Stewart in the Invasion.

Doctor Who The Lost TV Episodes Collection Volume 2

Today saw the release of the soundtracks collection to lost episodes Volume 2.

Still within the Hartnell Era, this set comprises of "The Masacre of St Bartholomew's Eve" "The Celestial Toy maker" "The Savages" and "The Daleks Master Plan" three of the story's contained within, are considered by many to be black and white era who at it's best. And so the boxed set worth having in every Who fans collection. Not forgetting that the Daleks master plan is the longest Doctor Who story ever, taking place in twelve parts. All of these Story's are from the original series (season) three, which in it's self is largely missing.

My All-Nighter with Tara and David Tennant

After showering and cutting my hair (and worrying if I had cut it too short), I was pretty much set for another all-nighter editing Doctor Who: Podshock 224. Then to my surprise, I received an invite via Twitter from (DWP Correspondent) Tara Wheeler @TARDIS_Tara to join her and others to listen to David Tennant on Absolute Radio in the UK. Tara said they were all "dancing." This must had been around 1:30 AM (EDT).

David Tennant on Absolute Radio

Ok, I could do that. I hadn't heard David Tennant interviewed since his returning to the UK after working here in the States. I figured I would pop over to the live streaming audio of the radio station with the simultaneous webcam view (when it wasn't failing) and see what David Tennant had to say in what I assumed would be a quick interview.

Little did I know once I got there, there was no Mr. Tennant to be found. One of the webcams had a view of an empty chair. So I assumed since they had been dancing before, I must had just missed his interview. I was about to say, "Oh well" and get back to work when I was informed that he had yet to come on. That they were still waiting for him.

Legend of the Cybermen Review

Ok this release has been out a while, but I had a lot of work in the way, so hear goes (a bad audio joke, Big Finish audio ahem Yes cough well).

I will start by saying this review (of Legend of the Cybermen) will have spoilers in it, but hopefully enough that you'll go out and buy it. The first thing is the story continues on from The Wreck of the Titan, and by that really had a lot to live up to, because Wreck was written so well by, and directed by Barnaby Edwards of Dalek fame and not of DWNY fame. In comparison Legend is written by Mike Maddox and Directed by Nick Briggs.

Gallifrey 21 AudioBoos

For those that follow me on Twitter, may know that I sometimes use AudioBoo to record short audio reports while on the road. It is usually while attending a conference or convention or some other event, though not limited to such. (If you want to know more about AudioBoo, back in 2008, I posted this blog about AudioBoo: Boo! AudioBoo! Mini Mobile Podcasting!)

This year's Gallifrey One convention (Gallifrey Blackjack 21) was no exception.
