Due to copyright reasons, we’ve had to substitute a couple of them on Soundcloud. So if you really want to hear everything there’s also this:

And so, part two of TV Cream Countdown: The 50 Greatest Doctor Who Moments, which you can listen to above (if your browser lets you) or download from here (that’s about 50 meg you’ll be shifting). Or subscribe. Oh, and this is our RSS feed
This time around one of the Jamie McCrimmons joins in the fun, we take a journey to an altogether more far-flung shore, examine premature male pattern baldness, an oscilloscope and a frockcoat, and remember the time the Doctor Who Appreciation Society blew it.
As per Episode One, we’ve also popped bits up onto Soundcloud for your downloading and sharing pleasure, which you can access here, or below. Feel free to tweet any bits you like. We should add, though, that due to copyright reasons, two chunks are not included in the playlist. But you can hear them, well, here. They are numbers 36 and 34.
We’ve instead included two extra, additional bits, to plug those Soundcloud gaps below. Collect them all!
Our thanks go to voice heroes Jonathon Carley and Dom O’Shea.
Peoples of the universe, please attend! The podcast that follows is TV Cream Countdown: The 50 Greatest Doctor Who Moments!
This is the start of a five-part series, which will run daily from here till Friday. It’s a slightly misnamed podcast to be honest, as it’s more a miscellany of 50 things about Doctor Who; but whatever – it’s still a nifty tie-in for the programme’s golden jubilee.
In this first instalment, we countdown from 50 to 41. Includes the Cybermen, the crossover betwixt DW and 007, a living legend of Doctor Who podcasting and a symposium on Whovian impressions. Ahhh.
It weighs in at about 46 minutes and 50 meg. You can listen to it above (if your browser supports that kind of fun) or download from here.
Easiest thing, though, is to subscribe. And this is our RSS feed. Be aware, for technical reasons this is a different iTunes feed from the previous TV Cream podcast, so even if you were signed up to that, you’ll have to sign up to this. Sorry.
We’ve also popped bits up onto Soundcloud, which you can access here, or – again, browser permitting – below. Feel free to tweet any bits you like, download, share etc.
At least try listening to the Introduction – that gives you a good taste of the podcast to follow…
On Monday 18th November 2013, www.tvcream.co.uk will unleash a daily, five-part podcast series: TV Cream Countdown: The 50 Greatest Doctor Who Moments. It will be packed with clips, plus chit-chat from folks on the fringes of Doctor Who… and cameos from favourite Doctor Who baddies!
You can subscribe to it via iTunes. NB – if you’ve already subscribed to the TV Cream podcast in the past, sorry, but for technical (ie. copyright) reasons, that feed is now dead. So please do sign up again!
As as taster, here is how the first episode will begin.
And if that embedded audio player doesn’t work on your browser, then download said snippet from here.
See you on Monday! Ah ha ha ha ha ha! The TVC is all mine!
Peoples of the universe please attend: The above video is to flag up that next month, we’ll be launching our podcast series celebrating the five faces… erm, five decades of Doctor Who. It’ll be called TV Cream Countdown: The 50 Greatest Doctor Who Moments.
Today is TV Cream’s 15th birthday. And what better way to celebrate than releasing our new podcast, which we can safely say is our best yet – because none of us are in it.
Instead it’s wall-to-wall Michael Barratt. A true TV Cream hero, Michael welcomed us into his house (we even met Dilys) to talk about our favourite ever teatime show… Nationwide. In this first part (of two) Michael talks about the origins of NW, why it was nearly cancelled, working with Bob Wellings and the gang – and what he made of this year’s jubilee coverage on the BBC.
It’s that series of ‘audio reports’ badged up as TV Cream’s10 Favourite Christmas Telly Treats now compiled into one big fat podcast (with some fun little extra bits)!
And so this is Christmas TV. Across a fun 53 minutes, we bring together our 10 favourite shows to have aired during the festive season. Although we shan’t reveal here which programmes turn up in which position, we can advise you you’ll be hearing a bit of: Sir Jim’ll, the Nativity wrought in paper puppetry, offal tubes, Colin Baker, Cuddly Ken, Edward Heath’s ding-a-ling, “Cupid!”, some television firsts, an inch-worm and, of course, “And a h-happy Noo Year!”
Have you done all your Christmas shopping yet? Actually, we’re not interested. What we really want to tell you about is what’s number 4 on list. So, download TV Cream’s 4th favourite Christmas telly treat immediately! Or listen to it below. Immediately!
Yesterday’s Papers – The End of the Music Press
Monday, 16.00, BBC Radio 4
We last bought the NME last year when it printed its list of the hundred greatest Britpop songs, and we wouldn’t particularly argue that feature illustrated the dire straits of the current pop scene because when we bought it regularly during the actual Britpop era it was forever harking back to punk. In fact the music press seems to have been at death’s door for many years now, first back in the early nineties when Sounds and Record Mirror closed down, then ten years later when Melody Maker and Select went, so it’s perhaps amazing we’re still pondering its future another decade later. David Hepworth knows a thing or two about the music press, but then he did also think those appalling illustrated covers on Word magazine were a good idea, so we’re not sure we’ll be too convinced by his argument. Good job the Bake’s going to be contributing as well.
