Doctor Who: The Pharos Project Podcast

Pharos Project 81: Naturally Occurring Baubles

It's time for the annual Christmas party at Pharos Towers, so we thought we might as well review this year's festive episode of Doctor Who while we're at it. A slightly more alcohol fuelled show than usual, including cracker pulling, present giving, podcast charades and firing party poppers at a ukulele.

Pharos Project 80: Keeping up with the Prydonians

This week, the Projecteers cast a critical eye on "The Keeper of Traken", as selected from Manilow's bag by Mr Steven Schapansky (, listen and buy stuff from the store because we're hoping to be put on commission). Also, Invisible Pete makes a welcome return, with a special Christmas message.

Pharos Project 79: Guys and Dolls

It's the final part of our Star Wars trilogy. In this episode, we focus on possibly the best thing to ever come from the Star Wars films. The toys. Featuring contributions from Nancy from The Happiness Patrol, Phill from Who's He Podcast and an interview with Shane Turgeon by Radio Free Skaro's own Steven Schapansky.

Pharos Project 78: Bantha Poodoo

In part two of our very own Star Wars Trilogy, the Projecteers brave the Great Pit of Carkoon. Well, watching the prequels again does at points resemble being slowly digested over a 1000 years. No Star Wars music this week, instead the tracks featured combine to form a coded message to George Lucas. See if you can decipher it's complex meaning!

Pharos Project 77: Scruffy Looking Nerf Herder

This week, we take the TARDIS back to 1977. In the first of three Star Wars episodes, the Projecteers are joined by Other Chris from The Eleventh Hour Podcast as they examine the original Star Wars Trilogy. May the force be with you........ always.

The audio quality isn't up to our usual standard, as it was recorded using Mr Chris' computer and on a version of Garageband seemingly written in 1977. Also, it's a bit long this week. We ramble on for our normal length, but the extra time is given over to audio contributions from other podcasters and our listener.

Pharos Project 73: Halloween Special 2. The Glory Hole

It's not what you think! The cupboard under the stairs (or glory hole) is where we find ourselves this week, as we look at the BBC's landmark drama "Ghostwatch". First broadcast on Halloween 1992, it took the form of a fictionalised live paranormal investigation, that gradually descends into choas. Culminating in the ghost of Raymond "Pipes" Tunstall spreading his influence out over the TV network, and into the living rooms of the terrified viewers.

It's episode 42, so we thought we'd dig out a bit of Douglas Adams for you. We're dipping our toes into the murky waters of incomplete stories and having a gander at 1979's Shada.

Apologies for the obscene length, but editing it down more would involve actual work. Something we struggle to avoid at all times. To make up for this, we've included a little outtake at the end. Three grown men laughing uncontrollably at a fart that manages to unseat a trilby.

Also included is the usual drunken stumble through the week's news, and the result of our DARDIS competition.

Hello Ladies and gents. It's time for our most self indulgent podcast so far as we review The Thing.

Paul had sway on this one as it was the anniversary of his birth. So it's Paul's favourite film, intersperced by bits of Paul's favourite tunes. Blame him. For everything. Seeing as we actually had to watch a film before recording this, it's a little bit more drunk than usual. Again, blame Paul.

Enjoy, and please tip your waitress.

Pharos Project 39: How to Enlarge Your Toad

Galltfrey One is over, and the post con blues were made even worse this week by the news of the sad passing of Nicholas Courtney. We therefore decided that we should review a UNIT episode of Doctor Who this week. So we tried to think of the most typical story from that era, one that had everything that you could possibly want from a UNIT episode. Unfortunately, we couldn't download "Terror of the Zygons", quickly enough, so we ended up watching "The Claws of Axos".

Also this week, Paul takes a wander back through his drink addled memories of Gally, Chris pretends to be a smurf and Little Pete levels some disturbing accusations at the episode in question.

Compo entries and feedback should be directed at or, if for some reason you find yourself wanting to make more immediate contact, you can follow us on twitter on @pharosproject.

Also this week, we talk a little about our time at Pontins Camber Sands, one of us gets excited about the upcoming Gallifrey convention and we announce our new competition with our bestest ever prize.

Thrown in for good measure we have feedback and PWCJFO.

Looking forward to seeing some old friends and making some new ones at Gallifrey. Don't forget the DWPA podcast panel which Paul will be part of.

In Honour of writing duo Pip and Jane Baker, this week's secret word is senile.

Pharos Project 37: Green Eggs and Holm

It's time for the Doctor to take a break as we indulge in our first dip into other stuff. As requested by our listeners, we take a look at "Alien".

Also this week, we introduce a new feature (PWCJFO) and provide you with the world premiere of an unseen Ridley bread ad.

Feedback, as always, should be directed at either or @pharosproject on the twits.

Congrats to the Davids Light and Perry for reading last time's tat. This week's secret word is batter.

Pharos Project 36: Last of the Summer Whine

This week we invite the Bad Wilf Podcast to join us as we rip into "The End of Time Part One".

We also wade into some strange and wonderful feedback and announce the winner of our competition.

Unfortunately, everything that could have gone wrong with the recording of the review, actually did. This resulted in a bugger of an edit and a drop in audio quality for the final 10 minutes.

Congratulations to "friend of the show", David Perry, who continues to be the only person that reads this tosh.

Send feedback to or @pharosproject on the twits.

Tune in to Bad Wilf for the review of Part Two. They can be found on iTunes or at

This weeks secret word is Pontefract.

Pharos Project 35: Oinky McTrotters' Big Day Out

It's a little windy in the Pharos studio/spare bedroom this week, as the projecteers look at the fart-fest that is "Aliens of London".

Please keep the feedback coming in. We need your offerings for Manilow's bag and any thoughts on films or series you would like us to cover.

Also, our competition to win a Doctor Who 2011 annual is still open. Entries and feedback should be directed at or @pharosproject on the twits.

Lastly, in what we believe to be a podcast first, we proudly present LIVE CAT SHEARING!

This week's secret word is Harris.

Pharos Project 34: Captain Stabley Does Some Homework

This week the Projecteers take on the abomination that is Time-Flight.

You know, the one with the concordes, the Master dressed as a Chinese Demis Roussos impersonator and the best employee British Airways never had, Captain Stapley.

Also, there's a look at Biggles, Tina Turner makes an appearance in the Pleasure Dome and Little Pete proves that he has turd magnets for hands as he pulls another shocker from Manilow's bag.

To enter the competition, please send answers to the question (what's in Paul's pocket) to

As we recorded this before episode 33 was released, the secret word will stay the same this time.

Pharos Project 33: We're Gonna Need a Bigger Boat

This week, the Projecteers spat Advocat into a roaring fire, argued with family and indulged in that other fine festive tradition that calls itself the Doctor Who Christmas Special.

Jenkins did sing, the Doctor did marry, Gambon did soften and Amy and Rory showed us their sex clothes. Actually, how would you role play between a Centurion and a Police Woman? Bit of an odd combo that. Chris and Little Pete usually do it as Ronald Mcdonald and Hamburglar, a more sensible choice.


Thanks to Terri Silvers and "friend of the show", David Perry for getting the secret word (this week, chutney) correct.

Happy New Year!!!
