The Flashing Blade Podcast 1-6 Greetings, yes?
This time around we have a peeksy-poos at the Big Finish play 'The Cannibalists' and waffle a bit about the 'Vegetable Man' story, 'Black Orchid'. There's also a couple more entries to our '1001 Uses for a Nick Briggs' competition, one of which is visual, so you'll all just have to go to our Facebook group, won't you? :P

Nowt special, just the usual stuff.

And things.

next time around, in accordance with Podcasting Law, we will blether about 'Torchwood - Children of Earth.'

Toodles for now then...

The Flashing Blade Podcast 1-4 From the Vislor Turlough Jokebook (Penguin, 1984).

'Big, isn't it?'

Yup, this time around we, er, well, we had an oopsies moment and over ran. So have an extra long, squidgy, yummy Flashing Blade Podcast.

This time around Jo! and Tony look at the Big Finish play 'Wirrn Dawn' and also the Ecclestone story 'The Unquiet Dead'.

We also launch our first competition - '1001 Uses for a Nick Briggs'. This is our response to Big Finish's far-too-overloaded release schedule.

It's either that or we start a national cull....

Lots of feedback and nonsense as usual, and next time around we look at the BF play 'Scapegoat' and, because we have to talk about it at some stage, 'Genesis of the Daleks.'.

All thoughts on those two and any feedback, be it mail or mp3 to

The Flashing Blade Podcast 1-3 Our thrilling third episode!

Or something.

This time around we natter about the Big Finish play 'The Beast of Orlok' and also the Doctor Who story, 'Earthshock'. Jo! sums up just how wrong she got it when it came to 'Ashes to Ashes'. We also, with great reverance, reassure the followers of the Church of THE Colin Baker. Jo! now understands - though she does worry...
Oh, and as promised, heres the addy for our Facebook group:

Featuring, this time, the World's Worst:

Alec Guiness impersonation (apart from Ewan McGreggor's)
Valentine Dyall impersonation

Oh, and they also winge about 'Planet of the Dull'

Next time, 'Earthshock' and 'The Beast of Orlok'

Welcome to The Flashing Blade Podcast! Hello there. Well, I finally got around to starting a new podcast, after Staggering Stories and my stint on the DWO WhoCast. This is just more of the same. However, there is a twist. My new co-host, my plucky girl assistant, Jo!, is fairly new to all this nonsense, and much as she likes Doctor Who etc, she is not well versed in it. As a result, her views are refreshing and new, uncluttered with all the old cliches that all us Doctor Who podcasters come out with. However, she is dangerous when it comes to peppermint tea. Just thought I should warn you...

So, The Flashing Blade Podcast 1-1  (thats series 1, number 1) should be with you shortly. We both hope you enjoy it and we'll plop some bio's and piccies of ourselves up here shortly :)
