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.

This episode is a tie-in with an essay by Josh, and features the two of us chatting about Species (1995), perhaps the very definition of a movie that is really interesting despite being pretty bad.

Both were surprised at just how good this film was. It's available on YouTube in full if you want to check it out before listening.

City of the Dead: 11 - The House that Dripped Blood

We're back! A quick regeneration for one of us, but City of the Dead has returned from its mouldy tomb. James and new co-host Lee Russell (of the excellent They Must Be Destroyed On Sight podcast) are here to tackle the next Amicus horror film. They're viewing vampires! Watching witches! Seeing stranglers! And dealing with decapitators!

39: The Tenth Planet, or, It's far from being all over...

With an ailing Pex Lives crew, battling the elements, the general and precipitous downward spiral of what has laughingly been called the civilised world, uncooperative technology, and a pair of immune systems that have crapped out just when we needed them most, we have lashed ourselves to the wheel and sailed on into the raging storm of knackered nautical cliches. Kevin had to phone in his contribution because his laptop wouldn't connect to the internet so the sound quality isn't what we like it to be, but it is still listenable. We also went considerably shorter than we usually do. Shortening it further, hundreds of consumptive sounding coughs were edited out from the file, but some have slipped through.

For all that as a disclaimer, we stand by this as something worth your time. It's probably the most-Doctor Who focused thing we've ever done, if that's what you like. Here we talk about William Hartnell's swansong as the Doctor and a little about the news that Peter Capaldi is leaving the revived show this year.

Enjoy!
