Doctor Who: The Pharos Project Podcast (podcasts)
Guerrilla podcasting in a pseudo New Wave Punk Revivalist old-school photocopied ransom note fanzine stylee. Or a clutch of Whovians getting tanked up and whittering about kids TV when they can get themselves organised. Take your pick. WARNING: Contains fruity language.

A mere two months late, we have a look at the 15th Doctor's debut in the 2023 Christmas special, "The Church on Ruby Road".

Fresh from an extended stay in the Balkans at His Majesty's pleasure, the Projecteers are back to look at the 60th anniversary Doctor Who gubbins. Brace for collision with a heady mix of unfiltered Who chat, middle aged people being confused by technology and good old fashioned vulgarity.

Ahoy, mateys! In this episode, Michael Caine has a shocker when he decides to take his horrendous child with him to investigate disappearances on the ocean waves. They run afoul of pirate David Warner, pirate Don Henderson off that bit in Star Wars and Pirate Tinker out of Lovejoy. It's 1980's "The Island".

Pharos Project 171: A Pod Amongst Men

This week. As Christmas is fast approaching, we decide it's high time we reminded ourselves just how evil Brussel Sprouts can be. So, with the aid of guest Matthew Woodcock of The Monster Hunters, we look at "The Seeds of Doom".

Pharos Project 169: Get Your Spectrox Off

This week. We continue our look at some of our favourite Doctor Who stories. Pete had a vague memory of a 5th Doctor story he enjoyed, so we naturally convinced him it must be "The Caves of Androzani".

Also, we have a gander at that minisode that came out this week.

Pharos Project 165: The Death Wheelers

This week. The Projecteers travel back to the 1970's in search of trashy british horror. They return triumphant, clasping a copy of 1973's "Psychomania". Motorbikes, Satanism and a healthy dose of toad.

Also, we play our new horror movie based game, Play Your Kills Right.

Pharos Project 160: The Seville Service

This week. We continue our look at multi-Doctor stories as we examine "The Two Doctors". We quickly run out of things to talk about, so have bolted on an interview with Anneke Wills in order to pad things out a bit.

Pharos Project 159: Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

This week. We travelled to Derby for the annual Doctor Who convention Whooverville. There, we were lucky enough to grab an interview with legendary Doctor Who director Graeme Harper.

Also, we were joined for some after con chat by Dean Hill of the DWO Whocast. It's a bit drunk, but we had been drinking for about 8 hours at that point.

Massive thanks to Steve and the other organisers of Whooverville and also the DWPA, of which we are proud to be members.
