The Doctor Who Rewatch Podcast - ‘The Waters of Mars’

It’s regeneration eve and, in the house that is Martian Base Bowie Prime, not a creature is stirring - except all the feckin’ water, that is!

We’ve almost reached the end of the road with Tennant and after a couple of Specials that could be considered distinctly non-special, a lot’s riding on ‘The Waters of Mars’ to ensure that Davey T gets the send-off that he deserves. Can Russel T Dog pull it back? Will Captain Avalanche give Ed a heckin’ break? Will the Doctor discover he likes watersports?

The Doctor Who Rewatch podcast- 'Planet of the Dead' commentary

Oh, Mr. Tennant, your time grows short!

We’re well into Daley T’s final year now and that, of course, means we are tackling those notorious SPESHULS in full force! This time, Russell T Dog is conjuring up some classic Who imagery,with a battered double decker bus in the middle of an endless desert planet - but outside of that undeniably delicious hook, does the episode offer us anything of substance? And, most importantly, is substance what the audience even wants or needs when we’re in full HOLIDAY SPESHUL EVENT mode, including so much brandy sauce that Michelle Ryan’s pilfered goblet runneth over?

Find out the answer to all this and so much more - as WHINE+SPACE guide you around the ‘Planet of the Dead’!

'The Next Doctor' commentary

Every so often, the world of genre filmmaking recruits a noted musician. David Bowie in ‘Twin Peaks’. Alanis Morrisette in ‘Dogma’. Britney Spears in ‘Crossroads’ - and now it’s the turn of TV’s ‘Doctor Who’, as noted misery guts Morrisey is taking on the mantle of The Next Doctor! Will his strident dietary activism regularly rear its head? Will he expouse some incomprehensible political views?

Find out the answer to ALL THIS - and much, much more, as WHINE+SPACE uncork the Brandy Sauce for ‘The Next Doctor’!

It’s the big one!

After literally years of anticipation, the purple man himself, the ambassador for Big and Tall stores everywhere, Thanos, is out and about, loud and proud - and ready to rumble.

'Spider-Man: Homecoming' commentary

Ah, Spider-man 6!

Where will this incredibly successful and long running franchise go next? How will Peter deal with the death of Emma Stone’s Gwen Stacey at the end of the previous film and, beyond Tobey Maguire’s delightful cameo in Avengers 3: Civil War, will Peter’s inclusion into the Marvel Cinematic Universe go down smooth?

The answer to all these questions - and many more - lie within, so fire up your Microsoft Zunes and get ready to go swinging, Spider-friends!

The Doctor Who Rewatch Podcast - 'Journey's End'

It’s fair to say that WHINE+SPACE haven’t exactly flown through Series 4 of NEW WHO. In fact, you could reasonably suggest it had spanned multiple years. But now’s not the time for bitter recriminations, now’s the time to gaze in wonder, mouths agape, at the realisation that we’re finally at ‘Journey’s End’, the series 4 finale - and an episode that concludes a whole host plot lines and themes that have been present since the very beginning of the Russell T Dog era.

Will Rose finally see Wilf again? Will Dave Ross light up his Reality Bong? Will Tennant blow his brains out by the end of the episode? It’s time to find out, so hit play on your Microsoft Zune……NOW!

The Doctor Who Rewatch Podcast - 'The Stolen Earth'

Aye-aye, there’s been some thieving going down!

Yeah, sooooooo, it looks like some devil has only gone and half-inched the whole planet whilst no-one was looking. If it wasn’t for all the bloomin’ calamity its caused, we’d almost respect the culprit. But WHO has done this interplanetary burglarisation? WHY would they possibly do such a thing? DO they realise that this is going to mess with Daylight Savings Time?

Find out - as WHINE+SPACE look back at ‘The Stolen Earth’!

The Doctor Who Rewatch Podcast - 'Turn Left'

Ah, choices, choices!

You just can’t escape them. Perhaps it’s deciding whether or not to let yourself drown when killing a giant red spider. Maybe it’s deciding to play Rose in a really weird way. It could even be choosing whether or not to remember that the Holocaust happened - which Donna appears to wobble on a bit in this episode. But choosing to recognise genocide isn’t the only choice that Donna makes this week, oh no - she’s going to be choosing the very direction of her entire life. Will she choose right - or turn wrong?
