00:48 The Front Page; Rob @WhoWars kicks off this episode with discussion of this being our biggest ever, from the point of view that it features an interview between Andy @skaromedia and one of the classic era Doctors from Doctor Who, Colin Baker, which is as big on the Doctor Who side of the fence as, say, a Carrie Fisher or Mark Hammil interview would be on the Star Wars side of the fence; San Diego Comic Con and the various Star Wars and Doctor Who announcements there; Doctor Who had a panel (includes audio clip), the announcement of a Lego game (includes audio clip), and a Series 9 trailer (which gets discussed in the following segment); Star Wars had a panel, a behind-the-scenes video (includes audio clip), the release of Dark Disciple by Christie Golden, based on unfinished Clone Wars episodes (reviwed later in this episode), and a symphonic concert of John Williams’ Star Wars music (includes audio clip); Welcome to Who Wars #36.
