This week, Nathan, James, Peter and Simon are all huddling terrified in a dark forest, waiting for the image of an angel to materialise and kill us all — but not before we finish our discussion of Flesh and Stone.
Notes and links
Peter mentions writing for Doctor Who Magazine, in particular “The First Fifty Years Poll”, published in Issue 474, July 2014. You can find the results helpfully listed here.
Simon and Peter have a shared history with Remember Me, an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation in which Beverly is horrified to find that her friends and fellow crewmembers are disappearing around her and no one even remembers them. Recommended, if you like that sort of thing.
As James points out, the forest scenes in this episode were shot in Puzzlewood, which is part of the Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire, and which the rest of us pretend to have heard of.
Picks of the week
As always, James has some Big Finish audios for us to listen to. The Fifth Doctor meets Michelangelo, the Weeping Angels and Sacha Dhawan in Fallen Angels, which is part of the first volume of the Classic Doctors New Monsters series, released in July 2015. He also recommends the many, many box sets that make up Big Finish series The Diary of River Song.
Peter suggests that you watch Netflix’s Bridgerton, featuring the magnificent Adjoa Andoh (Martha’s mother from Doctor Who) and the decorative Jonathan Bailey (Psy from Time Heist). But you’ve watched it already, haven’t you?
Simon recommends The Time Traveller’s Wife, both in book form and as a film starring Eric Bana and Rachel McAdams and released in 2009. You will find the premise eerily familiar, sweetie.
Predictably, Nathan recommends Russell T Davies’s latest drama series It’s a Sin, which tells the story of a small group of friends living in London during the AIDS crisis. He thinks it’s lovely.
James also mentions the Tales of the City books by Armistead Maupin, which are contemporaneous accounts of gay life in San Francisco, starting in 1978 and going all the way through to 2014.
