Doctor Who: Toby Hadoke’s Time Travels
Happy Times and Places 49.2 - The Sea Devils 2

Happy Times and Places 49.2 - The Sea Devils 2

December 9, 2022

This has it all - a bit of comedy, a lot of character, and Roger Delgado looking pretty spiffing as a naval officer. Add to that some comedy wiring, an epic sword fight and the famous rebranding of the Silurians as the equally inaccurate Eocenes and there's a lot to talk about ... even before we get to Jabba the Hutt. But will special guest Steve Hatcher choose the same things as your host - Toby Hadoke - when it comes to nominating the best thing about this episode?

Happy Times and Places 49.1 - The Sea Devils 1

December 5, 2022

Well, there was something in the air... well, alright, in the sea (and on the land... so actually not in the air at all). And that something was the Sea Devils because of course they recently returned to Doctor Who. So I thought why not remind ourselves how they were originally done? And they were done well, as convention organiser and writer Steve Hatcher attests. He has a few personal connections with the story too, so will that make it easier or harder for host Toby Hadoke to identify his favourite things...?

Happy Times and Places 48.5 - The Dominators 5

Happy Times and Places 48.5 - The Dominators 5

December 2, 2022

We add a bomb to the bickering in part five of The Dominators, and muse at what might have been had this had the planned sixth instalment.  Full Circle writer Andrew Smith has been a terrific guest - will the positives be shared between host and guest or will the differences of opinion be seismic? Hopefully there'll be a peaceful solution...

Happy Times and Places 48.4 - The Dominators 4

Happy Times and Places 48.4 - The Dominators 4

November 28, 2022

Well there's plenty of fun to be had here if your like exploding buildings and the destruction of cute robots. And two men arguing a lot whilst trying to remain dignified under big shoulder pads and tassled limbs. The Doctor is trying to save the planet Dulkis - but only inside. Outside, it's fair to say, he is not quite himself. Will Andrew Smith (a genuine Doctor Who writer who has written loads for Big Finish and, of course, TV's Full Circle) choose the same best thing about episode 4 as your host Toby Hadoke, or is their power running out?

Too Much Information 4.2 - The Singing Sands

Too Much Information 4.2 - The Singing Sands

November 25, 2022

There's a problem en route to Kublai Khan's palace both in front of the camera and behind the scenes. There's a sandstorm to negotiate in Studio D, but a key cast member falls in requiring a hasty change in direction. But they're a doughty lot who can improvise their way out of trouble, even if not everybody is on the same wavelength. On screen antics mirror off screen drama as Doctor Who's first lost adventure continues...

Indefinable Magic 20 - Defining The Magic

Indefinable Magic 20 - Defining The Magic

November 23, 2022

These Indefinable Magic monologues are usually the result of writing, re-writing, recording, retaking, re-jigging and finally assembling. That's why they take a long time. However, something was needed for Doctor Who's birthday and this is the result - one go, one take, a word avalanche which attempts to capture the essence of the indefinable magic that Doctor Who possesses. It's entirely personal and barely structured (no time for a pilot to show what the mistakes are) but it's a celebration of a programme that started exactly 59 years before the release of this podcast. It's not perfect, it's a little rough, but it has great music and hopefully it's entertaining and quite fun: so a bit like Doctor Who then. 

Happy Times and Place 48.3 - The Dominators 3

Happy Times and Place 48.3 - The Dominators 3

November 21, 2022

The TARDIS crew are on another planet but they aren't having much of a chance to play away as the council of Dulkis seem unable to defend themselves against the might of two men with very large shoulder pads and some squeaky robots who can destroy anything - inlcuding a hitherto happy relationship between a pair of writers and the BBC. A troubled production then - but is it one that Full Circle writer Andrew Smith and I can find some common ground on?

Happy Times and Places 48.2 - The Dominators 2

November 18, 2022

So there's a pair of giant turtle men and their pet malevolent box-children sucking up the radiation from a planet inhabited by peaceful men dressed in ballgowns. What's not to love? Well, quite a lot according to general fan opinion. So can Full Circle writer Andrew Smith and host Toby Hadoke find a peaceful solution to the problems of The Dominators?

Happy Times and Places 48.1 - The Dominators 1

November 14, 2022

Well, even our guest admits that this isn't even one of his favourite stories, so host Toby Hadoke might well have out work cut out singing the praises of this Troughton story everyone seems to try to forget about. Said guest, by the way, is only the writer of Full Circle, Andrew Smith! He's canon! So he has set Toby the challenge of accentuating the positives of The Dominators and who is he to refuse? Command accepted!

Happy Times and Places 47.1 - The Girl in the Fireplace

Happy Times and Places 47.1 - The Girl in the Fireplace

November 11, 2022

Snogging, Booze, Love - that's not what Doctor Who is about! Is it? Well, this tuned out to be a very popular episode, but will comedian Kathryn Mather - from a different generation a female perspective - appreciate the same things as host Toby Hadoke, or are they doomed to be forever separated by fate, time, and history?
