The TFA Android App: Transmissions From Atlantis
Time to change Doctors once again! Mike, Mike, and Dave are joined by Keith Castelan (U.N.I.T Southeast) and Kirby Bartlett-Sloan (20MB Doctor Who podcast) as they bounce around this story arc like one of the Rani’s death traps. What does the ESW crew think of The Seventh Doctor’s debut? The proof of the pumpkin’s in the squeezing!
Big Finish is delighted to announce that Chase Masterson, best known to science fiction fans for her role as Leeta in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (1993-1999), will be getting her own Doctor Who spin-off audio series as the impossibly glamorous bounty hunter Vienna Salvatori.
Listen to Part One of Episode 13
Whenever you attend a major con with a number of people, there’s a significant chance you may develop a cold. After all, being in contact with so many other sniffling, wheezing and coughing sickos can leave you with a lasting effect. This is called Con Crud and both hosts of Transmissions From Atlantis have been infected. It’s okay though, we’re not turning into Zombies or going off the deep end. We’re troopers and we fight through said Crud to bring you Part Two of Episode 13 – our Dragon*Con review.
In this episode, we give you scoop on the host hotels, we go into detail about the Dragon*Con Parade and we share with you our experience meeting Sylvester McCoy, the 7th Doctor (and one of the stars of the new Lord of the Rings flick – the Hobbit). We’ll also tell you which Doctor Who panel was the best of Dragon*Con and take you inside one of the panels with John Barrowman and Kai Owen, stars of Torchwood.
Check it out!

We’re on the eve of the greatest fan run Sci-Fi Con in the U.S. (and maybe the world) and TFA is all in! In this episode we give you the low down on the costumes we will be wearing and our entire schedule for Dragon*Con (subject to change).
We’ll also preview Doctor Who at Dragon*Con, Pond’s Life and the Series 7 premiere.
Rita’s Reading Review returns with George R.R. Martin’s A Dance of Dragons – the fifth book of the Song of Fire and Ice Series (Game of Thrones for you uninitiated).
Remember last week how we told you how much we loved Being Human (U.K.)? What a difference a week makes! JC and Rita lose their minds in a rant over series 3 and 4 during our Retro Review. Be warned – if you haven’t seen series 3 or 4 and don’t want to be spoiled – you MUST fast forward past this section. There is major spoilage in this segment.
We also give you our review of True Blood’s season finale – Save Yourself. One word – WOW! There are spoilers here, too. Consider yourself warned.
As always, the schedule and pertinent links are after the jump!
We’ve known for a while now that Sylvester McCoy has been in talks to play an important role in the upcoming The Hobbit movies. First we thought it would be Bilbo, but then we began hearing rumors that the actor was up for the role of Radagast the Brown. Over the weekend, the former seventh Doctor Who set the record straight.
The Dunoon Observer has reported that former Doctor Who actor Sylvester McCoy has commented on rumours concerning his casting in Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings prequel, The Hobbit.
The Seventh Doctor Who – Sylvester McCoyThings certainly seems to be looking good – he told the paper that although he isn’t in the running to be cast as the younger Bilbo Baggins, he is being considered for one of the “wizard parts”
This week on ESO, Mike, Judy, William and Mike do a Doctor Who review of the seventh Doctor and Ace story “Ghost Light” and then we are joined by our friend Kat to talk about Sci-Fi / Fantasy TV Themes that we all like. Join us for another cheerful podcast for all the fun and goofiness that goes along with Episode 21: What Would You Do If I Sang Out of Key?
