If you need something to listen to while you soak up the sun this Memorial Day weekend, why not give the WhoHype podcast a try? Let our four hosts from the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia entertain you.

At the risk of sounding too much like Sally Field, judging by the comments on this thread, you liked us; you really, really, liked us! We are positively chuffed, stoked, psyched, and thrilled that our fellow Whovians seem to respond to it.

You can find the full episode description here. After going through the submission process for a new podcast, WhoHype is now available on ITunes slightly earlier than we anticipated.

Please let us know what you think of the podcast and what you might want us to cover in future episodes besides updates on filming and spoilers.

You can reach our four hosts and the show on Twitter:

    I’ve never seen Doctor Who before but I’m interested in giving it a try…. Could anyone tell me what type of person would enjoy it and a little bit about the show?  I know I’d need to do some catching up with the first couple seasons but i still want to. Thanks!

      To be honest, just about anyone can get into Doctor Who. While it is technically classified as sci-fi, the set-up of the show allows it to explore so many different genres, situations and characters that I don’t like to confine it to science fiction. And again, the show is a very hard thing to explain while still doing the show justice. It’s about a 900 year old humanoid-alien who travels time and space in his space/time machine and often encounters monsters, historical figures or rare colonies. He is usually joined by a companion -typically a young female- who “grounds” him and sometimes helps him see the smaller pictures and also allows us to understand what is going on. It’s honestly one of the most original, creative, ground breaking and frequently fresh shows you will ever see – and I would recommend it to anyone. I’ll use one of my favourite quotes that just about sums up the entire set-up for the show in two sentences: ”Something here doesn’t make sense. Let’s go and poke it with a stick.”

      Or Neil Gaiman’s quote about it:  “No, look, there’s a blue box. It’s bigger on the inside than it is on the outside. It can go anywhere in time and space and sometimes even where it’s meant to go. And when it turns up, there’s a bloke in it called The Doctor and there will be stuff wrong and he will do his best to sort it out and he will probably succeed ’cause he’s awesome. Now sit down, shut up, and watch ‘Blink’.” 

      It’s really, really easy to follow especially if you start from the beginning of the reboot – like the beginning of the Ninth Doctor. Some people started at Tenth or Eleventh, but it can get a little mixed up. But if you start from the beginning of the Ninth, which is counted as “Season One” of the current Doctor Who, it was designed to make a new audience understand it. I’m really, really not into sci-fi, science and futuristic things confuse me, but Doctor Who makes perfect sense to me.

      Basically The Doctor is a Time Lord – an alien race – with a ship that can go anywhere in time and space. He helps solve problems. He deals with humanity. They have episodes set in the future and the past – anything from the destruction of Planet Earth to meeting William Shakespeare. It has literally everything you could ever want from a show, it’s very funny, very complex emotionally, it can be an action movie, a romance, a slapstick… it has EVERYTHING.

    I have subscribed but haven’t listened yet.
    I still have 3 season’s and 2 episodes left before I am caught up.

    I’ll have plenty to listen to when I am ready.

  • Phlossy

    Yay! A Who podcast. :D  I’m extremely excited. Loved the first show and I’m looking forward to more. It’s nice to see an international cast, too, since I think everyone contributes something from their particular frame of reference. I know I always look forward to Natalie’s view on things in Glee Chat.

  • Anna-FilmGirl

    I really, really want to listen to this podcast (because Natalie Fisher, you are pretty much the coolest person ever) and I’ve wanted to catch up with Doctor Who for a long time, but I haven’t seen it since it was about the Tenth Doctor and Martha? I think the last episode I can remember watching was Blink. Does anyone have any suggestions about how I could give it a shot again, preferably without having to catch up on too much? Should I just start from Matt Smith’s first episode and work my way up from there?
    Thanks. :-)

       In a dive right in fashion, you can probably just pick up right with the Matt Smith years. You shouldn’t lose too many vital plot points that way.  The only thing you might want to do is check out Silence in the Library and Forest of the Dead in the Tennant years to understand who River Song is. I strongly encourage going back and finishing the Martha Jones series where John Simm is amazing as The Master, and the Donna Noble years are (IMHO) the best, and I HATED Donna in The Runaway Bride.
