Hello. Here’s just a quick update, into what’s happening with the podcast.
Check out One foot on the stool.
Phil was kind enough to invite me on his podcast, to present my case that Martha Jones is the most important companion Doctor Who has had.
Martha Jones is a fictional character played by Freema Agyeman in the long-running sci-fi series, Doctor Who. The character would also appear in the spin-off show Torchwood, on TV and BBC audio.

As no other entertainment site is likely to show it, please allow us to present the trailer for the highly anticipated Avengers: Endgame.
Last month I was invited to a fancy dress party in Devon’s Devon. I had a weeks notice and the only thing I was told about the party was “vintage”.
Given this limited information, I decided to go as a vintage character from Doctor Who. The fourth Doctor, as played by Thomas Stewart Baker.
Now, before we get into it. Let me start by saying I wasn’t aiming for screen accuracy here. I just wanted something that would be passable and recognisable as Doctor Who. I was also only going to Devon for the day, so I wanted something I could wear on the train to and from.
The first item I purchased, was a burgundy crombie jacket from Jacamo.
Again, in no way screen accurate. But, it’s passable and a really comfortable jacket to wear.
The jacket cost £99 and can be ordered here.
It could also pass for a Twelfth Doctor burgundy jacket.
For the trousers, I just went for a standard black pair. Again, in no way screen accurate. But passable. You can get these anywhere that sells trousers.
For the fedora, I just picked up a cheap one on amazon.
I also ordered a brown curly wig from Amazon. As the wig made my head massive, I put two safety pins through the wig and into the fedora to keep it on my head.
The scarf came from Lovarzi and is a 13” replica of one of the scarfs Thomas Stewart Baker wore, as The Doctor. This is a high quality replica and I absolutely love it.
Shoes, I just wore my Nike’s. I know, not screen accurate.
But you can’t prove he isn’t wearing these on Big Finish audios!
Overall, I was proud of the way this outfit came together. I’m in no way a cosplayer, but after doing this. I can see why people enjoy it, I got so many smiles, hugs and high-fives at the party. Maybe I’ll work on a more screen accurate version in the future.
Below is the latest trailer for Deadpool 2.
This is the most perfect trailer, it gives us nothing, but makes us want everything.
On Saturday 28th April, Stacey Taylor (host of Stacey’s Pop Culture Parlour) will be leading the fight against heart disease with a 24 hour charity podcast. The third SPCP Live Event will be co-hosted by Barry Nugent (of the Geek Syndicate podcast).
“Back in 2014, I was looking for something to do for charity that wouldn’t involve something as terrifying as throwing myself out of a plane or clambering down the side of a tall building, but would be enough of a challenge that people would part with some cash to support it. A friend suggested that I turn my monthly podcast into a live endurance event: 24 hours of non-stop Stacey chatting, with guests, interviews and competitions! Thus, Stacey’s Pop Culture Parlour Live (#SPCPLive) was born”, explains Stacey.
The duo will be chatting all things telly, comics, books, music, video games and more, as well as being joined by guests from the world of pop culture to keep them company. The event will be broadcast live from Stacey’s home in Great Barr to raise money for the British Heart Foundation (BHF).
“Both my mum and my brother were my heroes, so when Stacey asked me which charity we could support for this event it was a no brainer for me” explains Barry, who suggested the British Heart Foundation as the beneficiary as he sadly lost his mum and eldest brother to heart disease. “It’s especially important when you see some of the scary stats around heart disease.”
Stacey said “I knew that the BHF was the perfect choice, as in addition to Barry’s reasons, I suffer from a rare form of heart condition called Wolff-Parkinson-White-Syndrome which causes palpitations involving episodes of my heart pounding from between a few seconds to several hours. The resources from the BHF following my diagnosis were an invaluable source of information and anxiety-reducing comfort to me.”
“We hope to be entertaining, to highlight the work the charity does and raise money for a great cause.”
The British Heart Foundation funds vital life saving research preventing, diagnosing and treating heart and circulatory disease including connected conditions such a stroke, vascular dementia and risk factors such as Diabetes. Help us to help the BHF by either spreading the word about the event or donating whatever you can to it.

Audio production company Big Finish, announced today that Burn Gorman will be reprising his role as Owen Harper. For their Torchwood range of audios.
Burn’s first audio, will be Corpse Day, which will be released in May.
Producer James Goss said:
“We’ve been trying to get Burn Gormansince we started. We’ve been hunting him across the globe, from Man In The High Castle to And Then There Were None, and we kept getting so close – and then he vanished into the depths of Hungary to make a film for months – but as soon as the project wrapped he was raring to go”
“Watching him recreate Torchwood’s sour zombie doctor was amazing – it was impossible to think that this was the same man who’d had us all giggling moments before. It was one of the most delightful days we’ve had on Torchwood – we put him together with Tom Price and just left them to it. Owen Harper is back from the dead, and he’s deader than ever. If you’ve never tried a Torchwood, I beg you to try Corpse Day. It’s pretty much everything.”
Here’s the synopsis:
Glynn Lewis is just putting up a spice rack when there’s a knock at the door. A knock that will bring a brutal end to his perfect family.
PC Andy is very excited. It’s Corpse Day – the day when the local constabulary get help on dead cases from Torchwood. This year, he’s volunteered to act as liaison, and he knows he’s going to have a brilliant time.
For Dr Owen Harper, today’s just like any other. There’ll be bloodshed, screaming and murder. At the end of it all, he doesn’t care. After all, life’s just for the living, and he’s long dead.
In which Martyn, Gerrod and Pete visit a schoolyard from classic Doctor Who and chat about the BBC’s Doctor Who spin-off, Class.
