NEXT STOP EVERYWHERE 024: "The Sirens of Time" is Up!
"You know, talking to yourself is often the first sign of madness."
"Hmmm...Yes, but a little madness helps, don't you think?"
-- The Seventh and Sixth Doctors, Doctor Who: "The Sirens of Time"
My good friend and co-host Jesse Jackson and I back with another episode of Next Stop Everywhere: The Doctor Who Podcast! And this time, we try something a little different as we review the very first Big Finish Productions Doctor Who audio adventure, "The Sirens of Time"!
Exploring this meeting of the Fifth, Sixth and Seventh Doctors from 1999, Jesse and I discuss things like Big Finish carrying the torch after the 1996 TV Movie, liking John Barrowman as Captain Jack Harkness as opposed to Malcolm Merlyn, the 40th anniversary story "Dimensions in Time," the greatness of modern Dalek voice artist Nicholas Briggs, comparing the Doctors on their first audio story, Claudia Christian on Babylon 5, Jesse's man crush on Colin Baker, my early experiences with Big Finish audios, Gallifrey as a story playground, satisfying fans who create their own fan fiction, a 14-year prequel to "The Five(ish) Doctors," audio adventures as the modern form of 1930s radio plays, absent companions, our Reverse the Polarity segment, some Series Nine news, and more!
