Pex Lives: A Doctor Who Podcast
James Murphy and Kevin Burns are both Certified Minor Internet Personalities with a shared love of Doctor Who. Explore the history of the show with them, as they watch classic serials and chat with each other each month about them. Each month, the pair will pick a classic serial to watch and then break down, exploring the themes, characters and production of the given story. There will also be jokes. New episodes on the first Sunday of every month.

A sick Kevin and tired James take a little time to blearily discuss the direction of the show, the recent call out for more diverse guests and James takes some some inexplicable swipes at Steve Ditko.

18: The Ribos Operation, or, They'll say Binro was right.

This is a very special episode. Anyone who likes what we do knows how indebted we are to Philip Sandifer and how often cite him. He was kind enough to guest on the show and is absolutely brilliant. We talked about the Ribos Operation, Capaldi's season, and take some interesting tangents. So, download, tell your friends, and rate and review us wherever you get the show. Thanks for listening!

Pex Alive. Pex Aliiive!: The Hammer Frankenstein Films

Don't say we didn't get you anything. Here is a very special Christmas gift for you. An undead gift. The best kind. This is one of the most fun chats we've ever had, all about the Frankenstein series that would prove such a huge influence on one of the best eras of Doctor Who. We talk about all the entries in the Hammer Frankenstein series, the Shelley novel, briefly go over the Universal monsters, and take in the kind of fascinating tangents that make talking to clever, witty people so fun.

As you should know, Jack Graham blogs at Shabogan Graffiti

Gene would rather people just leave him alone.

 

With extra thanks to @Hammerhorrorfan on twitter for this bonus episode's excellent artwork.

12. The TV Movie, or I've Never Heard of It. What Do You Remember?

Finally, the long delayed episode 12, which was our one year anniversary with our first ever guests, has time travelled from July. It's so exciting to have people hear what turned out to be a fantastic conversation that's so much better than the subject at hand; the TV Movie.

15: The Ice Warriors, or, Crushed beneath a moving mountain of ice.

The Pex Lives team are here to help you through the end of summer with an appropriately chilly episode. Patrick Troughton's Second Doctor's first meeting with.... the Ice Warriors! As well as more thoughts on the new episodes up to the end of last month. Will it melt their hearts or will the Pex Lives boys be cool on it?

Sorry. Enjoy!
