NEXT STOP EVERYWHERE 055: "The Innocent" is Up!
"It’s not about causes, Rejoice. I’m steeped in the blood of it all. It’s my reason for being – to do the unthinkable, to do what is necessary to bring this whole sorry chapter of cosmic history to an end, one way or another. In short, I’m a monster."
-- The War Doctor to Rejoice, Doctor Who: "The Innocent"
Returning from the farthest reaches of time and space, my good friend and co-host Jesse Jackson and I are finally back with a new episode of Next Stop Everywhere: The Doctor Who Podcast! We're reviewing the first audio adventure from Big Finish Productions' first War Doctor set Only the Monstrous, "The Innocent" starring John Hurt!
This time, Jesse and I discuss things like producing on the fly, our impressions of John Hurt returning as The War Doctor on audio, Time Lords choosing their identity as a rite of passage, Time Lords being total hypocrites, the War Doctor being a missing puzzle piece, Lucy Briggs-Owen as Rejoice, Jacqueline Pearce as Cardinal Ollistra, why the Tom Baker era story "Genesis of the Daleks" is so important, why the Doctor's regeneration into a warrior didn't change the Doctor as much as he thought, pondering if the War Doctor is really the monster he says he is, my Reverse the Polarity segment, Peter Capaldi's recent announcement that the new companion has been cast, and more!
