Ep 41: FURY FROM THE DEEP

11/11/2018
More
EPISODE 41: FURY FROM THE DEEP It’s time for a bit of weeding, or for a hit of weed, depending on your individual tastes. Oh, and don’t forget the nori! If none of this makes any sense yet, then come join our three-person discussion panel, featuring Alyson Fitch-Safreed and Dalton Hughes, as we discuss Victor Pemberton’s novelization of FURY FROM THE DEEP. It still won’t make any sense, but you won’t care as much. If you’d like to hear more of this sort of quality content, please come visit...

9/9/2018

Ep 36: TOMB OF THE CYBERMEN

8/19/2018
More
What’s the best Target novelization to feature a sinister plot that makes no sense, cyberbugs that aren’t named after bugs, and people that are named after clothing? Why, TOMB OF THE CYBERMEN by Gerry Davis, of course! Come see what our four-person discussion panel, featuring Jenny Ingersoll, Alyson Fitch-Safreed, and Dalton Hughes, thinks of this classic book despite all of its unavoidable craziness!

Ep 35a: John Peel Interview 2

8/4/2018
More
To follow up on our discussion of EVIL OF THE DALEKS, we interview author John Peel about this book, talk about his later DOCTOR WHO works, find out about the unusual OUTER LIMITS books he wrote for kids, and ask the question that everyone has about WAR OF THE DALEKS: why, exactly? The answers may shock you! (Or they may not surprise you at all. Listen and find out!) If you’d like to hear more of this sort of quality content, please come visit our Patreon page! It's at...

Ep 35: EVIL OF THE DALEKS

7/28/2018
More
How did we get to Jamie/Kemel slash fiction, FINDING NEMO, and SWEENEY TODD? It’s pretty easy when you have three gay men discussing EVIL OF THE DALEKS! Our diabolical panel this week includes Dalton Hughes and special guest Trey Korte discussing what makes a companion a companion, why Jamie is suddenly awesome, and why we still love John Peel.

Ep 34: THE FACELESS ONES

7/15/2018
More
MAD MEN, it’s not. Instead, we have a book about kids getting miniaturized snf kidnapped out of airplanes – and not a Mile High Club in sight. Yes, we mean THE FACELESS ONES, written by the prolific author whose name we love to knock, Terrance Dicks. Our not-so-miniature panel this week includes Alyson Fitch-Safreed, Dalton Hughes, and special guest Trey Korte! (Apologies for the sound quality of this one, which was easily the most difficult one I have ever edited: after three full days of...

Ep 33: THE MACRA TERROR

6/24/2018
More
Break out the Rid Shampoo – we’re going to be talking giant crabs! Actually, the crabs we’re discussing in THE MACRA TERROR are far more annoying, and their relationship with humans makes far less sense. We complete our Pride Month episodes with an especially prideful panel, including Jenny Ingersoll, Dalton Hughes, and special guest Trey Korte! (Please note: the sound quality on this one is variable – Mrs. Ingersoll’s kitchen can be rather echo-ey, and editing together four separate sound...

Ep 32: THE CYBERMEN

6/2/2018
More
We kick off Pride Month with an all-gay panel discussing whether THE CYBERMEN is a homophobic book. (The answer? Anything can be anything if you want it hard enough?) Come join Tony Whitt and co-panelists Dalton Hughes and Danny Celedon to find out whether the Cybermen really are meant to be a bunch of emotionally unavailable yet hunky men in fetish wear…oh.

Ep 32a: Nigel Robinson Interview

5/28/2018
More
Happy Memorial Day! It’s 92 f**kin’ degrees here in Chicago, so we’re celebrating the holiday by staying indoors and playing trivia against the man who created DOCTOR WHO trivia himself, Nigel Robinson! (That’s actually just the last few minutes of the show – we first ask him lots of questions that you’ve always wanted to ask but never could because he doesn’t know you. So there. Nyah.)

Ep 31: THE UNDERWATER MENACE

5/19/2018
More
Atlantis (Version 1.0), a city without refrigerators…and a possible slap for Polly?! This week we debate possible sexism and definite lack of plot (albeit not the fault of the author this time) in Nigel Robinson’s novelization of THE UNDERWATER MENACE! Come join host Tony Whitt and a panel comprised of not one but two novice fans, our usual fish o’ the sea Alyson Fitch-Safreed and our fill-in Fish Person Rory Jobst! We also have a Patreon extra this time, available starting Sunday, May 20...

Ep 30: THE HIGHLANDERS

5/5/2018
More
Och, aye, we’ve bin oot and aboot…no, no, don’t do that. Just…don’t. In our discussion of Gerry Davis’ novelization of THE HIGHLANDERS, we find ourselves saying that a lot – especially since our extra-special guest panelist, J.G. McQuarrie of the TALKING WHO TO YOU podcast, has exactly that accent! (Or at least more of one than anyone onscreen or on the page does…) Join host Tony Whitt, J.G., and returning panelist Jenny Ingersoll as they try to figure out why historicals suck, why...

Ep 29: POWER OF THE DALEKS

4/29/2018
More
In this episode, we (finally!) kick off the Troughton-era novelizations with the extra-special double-length POWER OF THE DALEKS by John Peel! Come join host Tony Whitt and panelists Dalton Hughes and Alyson Fitch-Safreed as they marvel over the wonders of Whitaker, the prose of Peel, and how it’s possible they’ve done so many episodes together without going all Janley on each other! (Oh, and please ignore the echoes in Alyson's first five minutes? Didn't realize that had happened until...

Ep 29a: John Peel Interview-Part One

4/21/2018
More
Although our discussion of POWER OF THE DALEKS is delayed till next week due to real world problems, we do have a special treat this week: an interview with the author of the book, John Peel! In this discussion, our host Tony Whitt asks Peel about being the go-to guy for Target Books about the Daleks, his friendship with Terry Nation, and what Dalek character most resembles Donald Trump. It’s a fun time! Featuring special guest stars: John’s pet birds! If you really like us or feel the...

Ep 28a: STAR TREK BOOK CLUB PODCAST (APRIL FOOL'S SPECIAL)

4/1/2018
More
We appear to have been hacked. No, seriously. This was supposed to be POWER OF THE DALEKS, but it’s…not. I have no idea where this file came from, nor do I have any memory of recording it. It certainly isn’t DOCTOR WHO, and I would never, NEVER threaten the life of one of my panelists during a recording, even in jest. Ahem. Anyway, some of you may still enjoy it… Please come visit our Patreon page! It's at https://www.patreon.com/DWTargetBC. If you decide to support us in our ongoing...

Ep 28: THE TENTH PLANET

3/24/2018

Care? Why should you care? There are podcasts being produced all over your world, yet you do not care about them. Well, you should care about THIS one, as it features our usual panel of experts and semi-experts discussing Gerry Davis’ novelization of the first Cyberman story and the final William Hartnell story, THE TENTH PLANET. We also find out which author you thought gave us the best version of the First Doctor (and why, just like resistance, polls on Facebook are useless)! CORRECTION...

Ep 27: THE SMUGGLERS

3/10/2018

What happens when you have three panelists who don’t give a s**t about the book you’re discussing? You get our discussion of THE SMUGGLERS, of course! Come listen to us kick off our fourth season of the podcast by smuggling with THE STRUGGLERS…er, other way around. And yes, any time two of the three panelists wander off in the middle of the episode to go to the kitchen (and one of them is the host!), you know it was a rough time. Enjoy! Which author do you think gave us the best version of...
