The Doctor Who Show S05 E08 – Fantastic! It’s the Eccleston era!

Every 12 months-ish, Rob and Dave look at an entire era of Doctor Who. Having done the Davison, Hartnell, and Pertwee eras in past episodes, the guys thought it was high time they did a Doctor from Nu-Who. But which Doctor…?

It didn’t take long for them to decide on Christoper Eccleston.

Before then, the guys discuss the past month in Doctor Who which includes Peter Capaldi landing in the new Suicide Squad film; Brian Blessed talks about being offered the role of the Second Doctor; ‘Time Fracture’ – a new immersive Doctor Who experience is coming to London in 2021; and Fury from the Deep announced as the next DVD release.

Short topics include: a Twitter survey Dave conducted on Twitter about Turlough; new Character Options sets excite both Rob and Dave (but not the same sets!); and Rob finishes his collection of Second Doctor PDA novels.
