Just a week after one significant Doctor Who anniversary (happy 15th birthday to the revived series!) there’s another significant milestone for the BBC sci-fi drama – ten years since Matt Smith first burst onto our screens in debut episode The Eleventh Hour.
In this week’s RadioTimes.com Doctor Who podcast, recorded across the Subwave network as the UK continues its lockdown, we take a look back at the Eleventh Doctor’s big debut, rethinking how well the story has aged (hello, Rory’s cameraphone) and what it tells us about what was coming next in the Smith/Steven Moffat era.
Also, we take a look at what Doctor Who fans have been up to to beat the self-isolation blues, debate the merits of Matt Smith’s many TARDIS-es and even ponder the alternate Whoniverse where the series was cancelled after the departure of David Tennant…
