    Shame we had already recorded and edited – we could have been the first podcast to announce the big news about the new Doc 🙁

  2. It will be all over the Internet by tomorrow evening, you can be sure someone will put a podcast together within minutes of the announcement! I don’t think we can hope to compete with one man shows or skype using podcasts – they can pull something together a lot quicker than the four of us can arrange a podcast! We’ll just have to remain the considered, intelligent podcast we are… Er, well remain whatever we are, anyway!

  3. Wow, fast, considered and intelligent! We’re right not trying to compete!

    I’m very impressed with how quick you got that out (as it were).

    A darker Doctor and series in general, you think? It is the Vast Toffee (MN) we are talking about, I suppose (with the emphasis on the MN – the Master of Nightmares!) Matt Smith was born between Timeflight and Arc of Infinity, did you say? My goodness, that was only a couple of years ago, wasn’t it?! First Doctor played by someone younger than me (at the time they took it on, that is. I think Tennant was about the age I am now, or will be this year, when he got the part…)

    Just want to thank Real Keith for the biggest laugh I’ve had in ages – “Russell T Davies will still have a finger in Saraha Jane…” Genius!!
