    Ep 100 - "Gridlock" commentary & State Of The Fandom

    18/06/2018 Duration: 01h16min

    That's right - it's the 100th edition of the Coal Hill AV Club, so - I don't know - I guess you should pretend this podcast is wrapped in a special gold leaf cover like Robert Holmes' "Two Doctors" novelization. Here's the deal: we start off talking about why we love the fandom and why it's a great time to be a fan, what with the Twitch stream and all. After about 25 minutes of that, we launch into a hilarious, insightful, snarktastic live commentary of the 2007 Doctor Who episode "Gridlock", because hey why the heck not? 26:51 - "Gridlock" pre-commentary 30:09 - Actual commentary (note: we were watching the Amazon Prime streaming version - we're 99% sure the DVD has the same edit, but if it doesn't, please let us know so we can crack some skulls.) twitter: @coalhillavclub email: podcast@coalhill.com

    Ep 99 - Even More Monster Madness - The Next Generathing

    27/05/2018 Duration: 01h25min

    It all comes down to this. And by "it", we mean "our March Madness thing, but in May, and with Doctor Who monsters instead of basketball people." And by "this", we mean "the final rounds." Who will be crowned as The Character and/or Species The Coal Hill A/V Club Most Wants To See Return? Will the Mara snake its way into a mythological victory? Will the Rani pickle her opponents like gherkins in a jar? Will the Voord something something latex something watery? Only time will tell. podcast@coalhill.com Twitter: @coalhillavclub

  • Ep 98 - Big Monster Madness Face-Off Thingy

    Ep 98 - Big Monster Madness Face-Off Thingy

    07/05/2018 Duration: 01h31min

    If you've ever wondered "which antagonistic characters should return in the next series of Doctor Who, and is there a way we can determine that through a March Madness style sports bracket system, complete with music someone ripped from a 1999 Jock Jams CD," then this episode of the Coal Hill A/V Club podcast is for you! (with Andy, Stephen, Dustin, and eventually one of the other ones, too.) This one gets a bit Vervoid-y, if you catch my drift, so let's go ahead and give it a strong PG-13/mind R rating. Probably NSFW, unless you work in a den of iniquity, like - say - an adult video store or a horticultural lab.

    Confoundin' crustaceans! The Doctor, Ben, Polly, and Jamie fight giant crabs at a holiday camp in spaaaaace... giant crabs that can literally mess with your mind, maaaan. Yes, it's Doctor Who's groovy 1967 take on the hypnosis/government propaganda story, and Dustin, Andy, and Stephen are here to offer the hottest of hot takes on a story no one's seen in 50 years because the BBC junked the tapes. Yes, folks, like the colonists say, "There are no such things as Macra." Actual story discussion starts at 16:40. podcast@coalhill.com

    04/04/2018 Duration: 58min

    Just a quick n' sleepy recap of Regeneration Who 4 - where our intrepid Coal Hill gang ran around all weekend running the costume contest, the variety show, and all manner of other things. We're clearly all pretty sleepy here, but in a fun, punchy way. And we say nice things about various cosplayers, actors, and con-runners. Stay tuned to the end for a special, Coal Hill AV Club exclusive mashup of that Portugal, The Man song everyone's digging these days. (No, the other one.)

    Ep 95 - Gallifrey One Recap - The Horns Of Ribos

    26/02/2018 Duration: 01h01min

    Our Gallifrey One 29 recap, recorded live in Stephen's hotel room at the LAX Marriott, and in and around Gally. Featuring special guest appearances by Mark Ayres, Alyssa Franke (@whovianfeminism), Emma Caywood, and an air conditioner that seemed to burst to life every darn time we started talking about something important. (I apologize for the sound quality - I attempted to do a "noise filter thing" and all it did was make everything worse, so I made the command decision to let the stupid air conditioner be part of the show. I'm sure its parents are very proud.) MEANWHILE... Here's the link to the thing in the promo at the top of the show.

    In this episode of the Coal Hill A/V Club, a Doctor Who podcast with about six listeners, we offer our preview of Gallifrey One, which is probably the biggest DW convention in the world, certainly the US. The gang will all be there, and we're up to some crazy stuff, so yeah. Also: tips for first time Gally attendees (tip #1: the cool kids call it "Gally"), a discussion of Dustin's odd proclivities, and Stephen can't tell the difference between two late nineties staples of alternative rock radio.

    27/01/2018 Duration: 01h05min

    Rollicking Retcons! It's the first part of our big, gallumphin', Stephen Moffat retrospective. The good, the bad, and the Silence. Clay, Christine, Andy, and new guy Dustin Hausner had a lot of fun with this one - so much fun, we had to split it in two. @coalhillcon podcast@coalhill.com Music: Lots of things from the soundtrack, and "Only In Dreams" by Weezer at the end.

    Ep 91 - Twice Upon A Time

    29/12/2017 Duration: 01h55min

    Great galloping glass people! It's Christmas in the trenches, where the frost so bitter hung. We start with two Doctors and eventually work our way to three as we bid farewell to Peter Capaldi, Steven Moffat, Murray Gold, Pearl Mackie, Matt Lucas, Jenna Coleman, and Mark Gatiss, who bears the honor of having the most important mustache in the universe. We had a lot of feelings about this episode, so yeah, this one's embarrassingly long, but we promise that if you listen to the very, very end, we'll send you the Official Coal Hill 2018 Sexy Porgs calendar*. *-we will not do any such thing.

    Lumberin' Lunacy! The Second Doctor meets the Cybermen for the first time, who are on a devious quest to fake the moon landing, or control the weather, or give people some kind of craft-store related disease. We're not sure exactly. Regardless, have Polly put the kettle on, because while this is a bang-on episode of the Coal Hill AV Club, "The Moonbase" itself is a bit... something.

    **UPDATE** Hey folks, it's me, your faithful editor. There was a massive glitchy thing at the end of the previous version of this episode where we all appeared to be talking over each other and it was embarrassing and bad. So here's the new version. Please listen to this one and delete the last version from your memory, kthnxbai. Ahem. SYLVESTER MCCOY! WARIS HUSSEIN! RICHARD ASHTON!

(Oh, and next time around, you've got interviews with Sylvester McCoy, Waris Hussein, and Richard Ashton (Friday the Ice Warrior) to look forward to, plus more Coal Hill shenanigans. Like, for real.)

    Our interview with composer Dominic Glynn ("Trial Of A Time Lord" etc.) at TIME EDDY III in Wichita, KS. We talk about his new remix EP of music from his score for "The Happiness Patrol", how to become a Doctor Who composer, the trials and tribulations of accidentally ripping yourself off, and what it feels like to unexpectedly hear your own music in a walk-in bath commercial.

    31/10/2017 Duration: 55min

    Happy Coal Hill-oween, everyone! We're back. Unfortunately, our plans for a "Coal Hill-O-Ween Spooktacular" were scuppered when we learned that our special guest star - Bela Lugosi - was dead, and had been for quite some time. So instead, we decided to discuss the announcement of the Doctor's latest companions, and catch you up with some nifty things we've been doing lately, such as: actually publishing a book (It's called WHY I GEEK, and it's full of essays about fandom, and you should buy it), and the awesome time we had at Time Eddy III in Wichita, KS, and the awesome time we're going to have at LI Who in Long Island, NY. We also chatted with David (from Greyscale Productions) about his incredible, home made, First Doctor console - with the Radiation meter and everything. If you love us, you'll buy our book: https://goo.gl/uqkBoC If you love us more, you'll follow us on Twitter: @CoalHillCon And if you really love us, you'll email us pictures of yourself in a homemade K-9 costume*. podcast@coalhill.com

    Fish heads. Fish heads. Roly poly fish heads. Fish heads. Fish heads. Eat them up, yum. This week, you get a parody of a Disney tune you might know from somewhere, Stephen extolling the virtues of candy cigarettes, and - oh, yes - Clay and Andy discussing the infamously terrible Patrick Troughton story that blew up Atlantis again for the first time, "The Underwater Menace." EXCEPT... is it really that bad? Can even Clay find something to like in this, the most maligned of all maritime melodramas? Find out... on the Coal Hill AV Club!

    Jumpin' Jacobites! (wait, did we already use that one for "The Eaters Of Light"? Dunno. Anyway.) It's the aftermath of the Battle of Culloden, and the Second Doctor has taken the opportunity to steal some hats. Meanwhile, Polly teams up with a plucky character with "companion material" written all over, someone who's sure to become a fan favorite, you know 'em, you love 'em, it's... Kirsty! Also, we meet Jamie McCrimmon for the first time. He does some stuff. Also: lots of news, Kids Talk Who talks Sarah Jane and Daleks, and we dug up a long lost pop classic recorded by an actual Doctor Who companion.

    01/09/2017 Duration: 01h13min

    Blusterin' Bug-eyed Monsters! This time, we're joined by author Graeme Burk, (host of Reality Bomb) to discuss his work curating, editing, and annotating the new book, Head Of Drama: The Memoir Of Sydney Newman. You might know him as the "idea guy" (pop pop pop!) who came up with the idea for a little show we like to call... "Adam Adamant Lives!", but - in fact - he's best known as the creator of Doctor Who. (That interview starts, oh, 20 minutes in. We get pretty punchy up to that point.) Also, Stephen, Andy, and Clay are joined by Cooper once again for the news segment, where we discuss conventions, the loss of a dear friend of the Doctor Who family, and Clay's actual excitement over the new Big Finish release "Tales From New Earth." This week's song: "Ahead By A Century" by The Tragically Hip. podcast@coalhill.com Twitter: @coalhillcon coalhill.com

    Dastardly Daleks! It's the dawn of the Troughton era on the Coal Hill AV Club as Stephen and Clay take us to Planet Vulcan! No, not *that* Vulcan - pon farr from it! The Doctor's a bit erratic and the Daleks are pretending to be nice and the animation's gone a bit South Park and... well, there's a lot to get into, so let's just jump into it. music: "Good Vibrations" - Beach Boys podcast@coalhill.com Twitter: @coalhillcon coalhill.com
