Things are hotting up as we rattle through the top twenty Greatest Doctor Who Moments that Rufus Hound has never even had cause to hide behind the imaginary sofa that nobody ever actually hid behind about, and in this selection you can hear about my fondness for a scene in which the Cybermen forgot what page of the script they were on, with bewildering rather than hilarious consequences. Download it here, and don’t forget to click here to hear an outtake in which I ruminate on whether Monarch really was ‘King Frog, Ruler Of The Universe’.
Part Three of the epic countdown of the Greatest Doctor Who Moments that you’ll never see in a sidebar in Doctor Who Magazine, and somewhere between Number 30 and Number 21, you can hear my take on the legendary Rare Photo Of The Rill, and Sylvester McCoy’s equally legendary appearance on BBC school holiday morning magazine show But First This.

Part two of TV Cream‘s countdown of the REAL Greatest Doctor Who Moments in the history of all Doctor Who ever (you can find the first one here), and in this one you can hear my thoughts on ear-assaulting late eighties continuity announcements, and the recovered footage from lost stories that nobody was really that bothered about.
All this week, you can hear me taking part in TV Cream‘s 50 Greatest Things About Doctor Who Podcast, a tongue-in-cheek rundown of the moments they probably won’t be getting Robert Webb to enthusiastically talk over on BBC3 in a manner that totally and convincingly camouflages the fact that he’s never seen any of them and doesn’t much care one way or the other anyway. The first part’s now up at TV Cream here, and in it you can hear – amongst loads of other great bits - my thoughts on Richard Hurndall’s… shall we say ‘idiosyncratic’ take on promoting The Five Doctors.
And while we’re on the subject of Doctor Who, have a look at this blog attempting to put names to some of the weirdest aliens ever seen on screen.
