The Doctor Who Rewatch Podcast - 'The Fires of Pompeii'

To think that you thought we'd never return!

Well, it turns out that you're a heckin' fool, as the Doctor Who Rewatch Podcast is BACK, and we're ready to tackle the second episode of New Who a mere three months after we recorded for "Partners in Crime'. Don't forget, in the context of all of time and space, three months really isn't that long at all...


So, what will the second episode of the series offer us? Naturally there's the impossible to ignore cameos from Kazza G and Petey Capaldo, but do 'The Fires of Pompeii' have more to give? There's only one way to find out and that's to climb into your Time Box, hit 2008 and wait for the magic to happen!

The Stephen King Adaption Project- 'The Shining' (1997) part 3 commentary

All good things must come to an end, so, after ALL the hours, The Stephen King Adaption Project is finally waving goodbye to The Shining, with our commentary for Part 3 of the 1997 miniseries.

And what better way to say farewell to the Overlook Hotel then with a jolly old knees up, a lovely masquerade ball that has everything you could wish for - free flowing booze, men behaving like dogs, a sexy corpse lady - and oh so much more.


So, as the clock strikes midnight, get ready to unmask, unmask, unmask one last time!

The Stephen King Adaptation Project -‘The Shining’ (1997) Part 2 commentary

Let it shine!

Yes, The Stephen Kind Adaptation Project is back - and we’re returning to the eerily familiar Overlook Hotel for a second spooky, scary, scream-filled week!



But why will we find there? A Jack Torrance who isn’t absolutely bananas from the very first shot? A Wendy who has some semblance of bladder control? A Danny that coins the hit song ‘I Love Snow’? Most importantly, will the antics of these three little pigs titilate us beyond what old Stanley presented to us in the 1980 adaptation? Or will we go full on crackers like that old cracker Jack Nicholson and demand to return to the embrace of Kubrick’s labyrinth forever and ever and ever?

'Capaldi Leaves Doctor Who' podcast

Capaldi leaves Doctor Who!

Just when you thought it was safe to go to bed, Peter Capaldi goes rogue on the radio and announces he’s leaving the role of Doctor Who, who he plays in the television show ‘Doctor Who’.

But, at ‘All of Whine and Space’, we don’t let things like it being a school night and already being in our PJs deter us from matters of worldwide importance - and frankly we can all agree that this is an issue of such gravity to the world as a whole that it supersedes anything else occurring in current affairs.


So, grab your electronic guitar, place your tasteful sunglasses on and ready your mucky jumper - it’s time for Moffat to take us around the world one last time!

The Stephen King Adaptation Project -‘The Shining’ (1997) commentary

We’re finally kicking off The Stephen King Adaptation Project in earnest, as we look back at the first part of the 1997 TV miniseries based on ‘The Shining’. It’s no secret that King felt that Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 film was severely lacking as a translation of his book and, in the late nineties, set out to Correct this. Harshly.


Stepping into the shoes of Kubrick’s film is an intimidating proposition, as rightly or wrongly, the 1980 film is a hugely visually iconic part of cinema history, making one wonder how any further re-adaptation could do anything but pale in comparison. However, we’ve found that though the miniseries may be comparatively lacking from a style perspective, in terms of characterisation, performances and channeling the spirit of the novel, the first part of the ’97 miniseries has a lot to offer.

Let’s get to it, shall we?

'Sherlock - The Final Problem' commentary

Everything must come to an end, even one of the super long and extremely frequent seasons of TV’s ‘Sherlock’. But this ending carries even more weight than usual, as whispers from the east have suggested that series 4 may very well be the last collection of adventures for our Beloved Baker Boyz.


In reality, WHINE+SPACE think the likelihood of ‘Sherlock’ continuing beyond series 4 is extreeeemely high - but if this episode is to be the last, is it successful as an ending? More importantly, does it just plain up work as a standard end to a Sherlock series, placing aside any speculation about the show’s future?

Sherlock - 'The Lying Detective' commentary

Last week, 'Sherlock' returned to our screens to continue its main narrative since the end of 2014's 'His Final Vow' with 'The Six Thatchers'. However, it would appear that in most circles, the reaction towards the episode was lukewarm to outright negative, with us at 'All of Whine and Space' finding much to enjoy in the episode, but ultimately feeling like we we witnessing one of the show's lowest points to this stage.


So imagine our surprise when we sat down to 'The Lying Detective' to discover that this thing was pretty darn good. In fact, it was very good. We might even be tempted to call it classic Sherlock. But have we deceived ourselves? Have we gotten so carried away with relief following the lacklustre first episode that we're falsely elevating 'The Lying Detective' higher that it deserves?

There's only one way to be sure - it's time for a heated debate!

'Sherlock - The Six Thatchers' review

The match is on! The shit is hot! The game is starting!


Yes, it's that time again, where, much like a rare astrological event that can only be fleetingly witnessed once every few decades, a new series of TV's 'Sherlock Holmes' is landing in our laps!

But how will the creative dynamic duo of Moffat and Gatiss address the now three year old cliffhanger that we were left with in 'His Last Vow'? Will there be stunning, bone-jarring repercussions that will reverberate through the entire series? Or will things be tidily swept under the carpet in the first ten minutes? There's only one way to find out - and that's to jam this podcast straight into your Sony Walk Man and brace yourself for heavy spoilers from the outset!

The Doctor Who Rewatch Podcast - 'The Return of Doctor Mysterio'

It's Christ's Mass!

And what better way to celebrate than with the return of an enigmatic, eccentric white haired fellow who seems to be able to bend time and space? Santa? No, silly, it's old Doctor Mysterio himself AKA Peter Capaldi AKA Doctor Who AKA The Doctor!


After a year (or twenty-four) away, Doctor Mysterio is back on our screens with the coincidentally annual Christmas Special. But something is amiss, as this Christmas Special seems to have a distinct lack of tinsel, snow and other festive shit and a definite abundance of latex, x-ray vision and other superhero shit. We seem to be taking a different approach to this year's festive adventure, but how will Who's flirtation with the superhero genre go down? Will it slide down smooth, like a fine Christmas pudding covered in Brandy Sauce? Or will it go down all jagged and cutting, like a glass Christmas star not covered in Brandy Sauce?

There's only one way to be sure - so grab your baby monitor, swallow your gem and take to the skies!

‘Home Alone’ commentary

Merry Christmas, ya filthy animals!

Yes, the festive season is upon us and before we look ahead to the new year, there’s just time for us to look back into our pasts, to think of our youth, to think of our family - and the time that we used our magic mind powers to make them disappear and then unleashed our sadistic tendencies on some desperate, petty criminals.


Here at ‘All of Whine and Space’ we’re just at the right ages for ‘Home Alone’ to have been a huge part of our childhoods, so amidst all of these Star Wars shenanigans, we thought it was time to pour on the brandy sauce, deliver a hastily wrapped present and do a commentary for the 1990 smash comedy that taught a whole generation of children that if someone enters your house unannounced, you can pretty much do whatever you want to them, moral implications be damned.

So join us as we enter the terrifying, vigilante justice-infused world world of Kevin McCallister’s psyche. Oh, what horrors await.
