On the forty-fourth edition of Reality Bomb, we have a super-sized episode where we get excited about series ten with a panel that includes Lindsey Mayers, Joy Piedmont and Angelique Roche. We also travel to the canals of Venice (or a simulacrum of them in Croatia) when The Vampires of Venice comes to the Gallery of the Underrated with Kathleen Schowalter. And why is it that fans in North America can't access a large number of stories in the catalogue of classic Doctor Who stories? We ponder this question with the Incomparable Podcasting Network's Jason Snell. All this plus Listeners' Letters and a pub quiz that takes a huge left turn...

Reality Bomb Episode 042

On the forty-second edition of Reality Bomb, we’re faster than a speeding bullet and more powerful than a Mr. Huffle as we discuss (or argue about) The Return of Doctor Mysterio with Joy Piedmont and David Barsky. Also, there’s murder that’s not cricket as author Glen Weldon (The Caped Crusade: Batman and the Rise of Nerd Culture) of NPR’s podcast Pop Culture Happy Hour brings Black Orchid to the Gallery of the Underrated. And we talk about a decade of Doctor Who spinoffs with Petra Mayer, Sage Young and Jim Sangster. Plus a popular radio show and podcast examines the science of trailer predictions!

On the forty-first edition of Reality Bomb, we've got a blast from the past as Simon Fraser and Lori Steuart discuss the recent animated reconstruction of The Power of the Daleks. Also, the entire first season of Class is graded by Joy Piedmont and Robert Smith? And Chip Sudderth, ignoring the call from the Ood Sphere and avoiding his fate to rejoin Two-Minute Time Lord, finds a loophole in our "no podcasters" rule to talk about The End of Time, Parts One and Two. Plus: Bruce and Darren return on a time-travelling quest to find the missing episodes!

Note: the discussion about Class takes place between 26:25 and 46:16

And Tai Gooden has flown the number 200 bus to the Gallery of the Underrated to discuss Planet of the Dead. And Sage Young speaks about women, safety and Doctor Who conventions.

Note: the Class discussion takes place between 2:16 and 13:45

All this plus the music of Cat Smith and a rap battle extraordinaire with Andy Hicks (who wrote it) and Cat Smith and Kim Rogers. And Graeme reads from his adolescent fan fiction!

Reality Bomb Episode 036

On the thirty-sixth episode of Reality Bomb, we've given over the whole episode to a special documentary that looks back on the special programs on Doctor Who made by Eric Luskin and New Jersey Network for PBS in the 1980s. We listen in on some of the best moments of these documentaries, talk to fans including Chris Hankenson, Drew Walco, Felicity Kuzinitz, Steven Schapansky and Warren Frey about what those programs meant to them and what it was like to live in a world of PBS pledge drives. And we talk to Eric Luskin himself about what it was like to go behind the scenes on Doctor Who in the 1980s and interview some of the most important people from that period.

SPECIAL NOTE: Reality Bomb will be doing a live show in New York on Saturday, September 17 at the Way Station in Brooklyn. Details are on our Facebook page.

Reality Bomb Episode 035

On the thrity-fifth edition of Reality Bomb, we're puzzling about how Matt Lucas is going to play Nardole, given how little there is of him, and pondering the first Series 10 writers that have been announced with Richard Salter and Edie Nugent. We're looking back on Doomsday 10 years later with Head Over Feels' Sage Young and Kim Rogers. And we wake up to the possibilities in what will probably be one of the lower regarded stories from the past season when Martin Hajovsky brings Sleep No More to the Gallery of the Underrated. All this plus an infomercial that will change your life when it comes to freaking out about Doctor Who!
