Doctor Who: Podshock - Episode 179 EXTRA Edition
Running Time: 1:40:21
We review all 10 Doctor's eras of Doctor Who in this Deca-Doctor Special of Doctor Who: Podshock. As we approach the new 11th Doctor era, we review where we came from with the previous 10. Included are interviews we conducted over the years with various actors to play the Doctor (including Patrick Troughton, Jon Pertwee, Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy, Paul McGann), some of which have never been featured on Doctor Who: Podshock before.
"My last incarnation… oh, I was never happy with that one. It had a sort of feckless "charm" which simply wasn't me!"

To make up for having to miss out on going to meet the man himself at Chicago TARDIS, I settled instead for the pleasure of listening to the recent Big Finish 8th Doctor audio – “The Company of Friends”. And a real delight it was too (more details on that below!). While listening to it, I marveled at the breadth of “friends” (or companions) that the 8th Doctor has accumulated, across a wide range of mediums. In fact, all told, it is possible that the 8th Doctor may have had more companions (15, by my rough count) than any other incarnation! This is all the more astonishing given the brevity of his television appearances – about 50-55 minutes of a 90-minute TV movie.
Oh. Yes. Tweet me if you're going to be there at the Silent Movie on Fairfax on Tuesday. Bruce Robinson? A 35mm print? Heaven!!!
I believe this is going to be on "Masterpiece Contemporary" this Sunday in the US - David Tennant and Paul McGann, together at last! - but I've seen it. Pretty much your bog-standard ITV prime-time soap, but great actors and good performances.
