WhoHype Podcast

Episode #1 – The Doctor Will See You Now

Hosted by Harri, Laura, Natalie, Jen

May 24, 2012

WhoHype is the latest addition to the Hypable podcasting network. The show is dedicated to in-depth discussion about the Doctor Who universe: show and cast commentary, filming locations, rumors, tie-in video games/other products, spin-off series and more. Realizing that not every fan wants to know everything, we even have a specially marked spoiler section so listeners can skip around that information if they wish.

The four hosts of the show are from around the globe: the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia. Hypable’s regular Doctor Who writers, Laura Byrne-Cristiano and Harri Sargeant, lead the discussion with two additional Doctor Who fans from the staff joining us: Jennifer Lamoureux and Natalie Fisher.

– The four hosts Laura, Harri, Jen and Natalie begin by introducing themselves, and explain how they each got sucked into Doctor Who
The spoiler policy is explained, and then we talk about the hosts’ history with the series, the series’ high points for us
– We proceed with an in-depth discussion of favorite:

  • Doctors
  • Companions
  • Episodes
  • Dialogue Exchanges
  • Monsters

With our filming update we cover what we know so far from the BBC
-Meet the new Companion, Jenna-Louise Coleman. What do we know of her career and connections
– Next we channel our inner-River Song and declare *Spoilers*, so listeners can hit pause and then skip to the 1:03.45 mark to avoid them if they wish
– Back from our spoilery discussion we delve into the mind of Steven Moffat (or at least we attempt to tap a molecule) and predict what could be so different about the new Companion and why she is cloaked in utter secrecy.

Most importantly, we want you hear from you the listener. What do you want us to discuss? What do you think about the filming rumors and our predictions?
