A Destructoid community podcast, covering the long-running science-fiction series, Doctor Who. Each week we look at DW news and topics, as well as our story-by-story roundup of every DW serial, starting at the very beginning.
(We're open to having guests rotate in, especially since we're missing UK people who could bring in some extra perspective. Let us know if you're interested!)
With no more new episodes of Doctor Who for a while, TARDIScast is going to keep on doing our serial-by-serial review of classic Doctor Who. This week, we cover the very first Dalek serial from 1963 (appropriately called The Daleks), where Ian Chesterton continues to prove that he is the best male companion ever! He's a science teacher who also knows how to: convince pacifists to become warriors, go spelunking in caves, pull off Metal Gear Dalek, and pretty much do everything that's needed to save the TARDIS crew's lives. As well, we also have a segment where we tell our personal stories about how we first started watching Doctor Who.
