Hold the front page! David and Peter return to the world of Whom in a brief and slightly-dated romp through recent headlines, including news of Doctors, companions, late friends of the series, trailers, trousers, swatches and Watchers. All this as the clock rushes towards Christmas…
Intro tune: ‘It Says Here’ by Billy Bragg
Outro tune: ‘Tomorrow People Solo Guitar'(D Simpson) performed by Six-String Steve
Stories Covered Doomlord, Thunderbolt and Smokey, Sergeant Streetwise, Dan Dare, The Tower King, assorted features, and The Collector.
If all of this seems rather familiar we recommend Space Spinner 2000, where Conrad and Fox do this much better with 2000AD.
Normal Beyond the Sofa service will resume shortly, however if you like the sound of Where Eagles Dare, we hope to have it running soon separately in itunes, and with a facebook page for feedback and pictures from the issues covered.
All the best
Pete and Dave
In a blockbuster episode Pete and Dave visit this month’s gossip and rumour before reviewing 2011’s UK Science Fiction flick Attack the Block (starring Jodie Whittaker and John Boyega), with additional feedback from our dear listeners Joanne, Neil, David and Jon.
Dave eats humble pie and becomes a Nigerian TV station, before he and Pete venture back into the past for Beyond the Sofa’s own missing episode, belatedly covering the galaxy’s greatest comic’s 2000th issue.
Hey Fandom! Those themes of tolerance, kindness and understanding over the past 50 odd years – Which bits did you miss? Dave returns, and he and Pete wade into the murky quagmire of post-13 fallout. On the way we salute this month’s fallen and add our thoughts on the Christmas to come.
All that Beyond the Sofa…
Here We Go Again, but it Feels Different This Time! Hours after the big reveal Peter and Jono wake-at-the-break to discuss the enormity of the arrival of the Thirteenth Doctor, Jodie Whittaker, and the small matter of the future of Doctor Who. Caution: May Contain Reactions!
Download hereDeus Ex Lachryma! Beyond the Sofa returns with Series 10’s two-part finale, featuring Mondasian Cybermen, Missy, the Master, models, magpies, and more minutes than we’d normally fit into an episode! Joining Peter on the Sofa is Zeus Plug’s own Machiavellian magistrate, Mr Jono Park!
Holy Rona’s Roamin’ Romans on Ice Batman! Pete and Dave travel back in time to review what appears to be the same story twice, with Doctor Who’s Empress of Mars, and The Eaters of Light. Olympus Mons or Ludicrous Maximus? Find out – Beyond the Sofa!
Chaos ensues as Dave tries to rewrite history for the latest Doctor Who episodes, while Peter patiently calls shenanigans. The Pyramid at the End of the World, and The Lie of the Land are taken to bits, but will they form a great Lego structure – or just stab feet as they are left on the carpet?
