The Ood Cast S04E08 – The Faraway Trees

“It was a bit like being on Endor but with Willo the Wisp…”

Ho ho ho, Merry Christmas.

It’s March, you say?

Well, it’s a show about time travel. What do you want from us?

Yep. It had to happen at some point, we finally got around to reviewing the Christmas special. Was it a festive treat with all the trimmings or a disappointing mess composed of dry meat, lumpy gravy and too many sprouts?

Christmas metaphors. We’re using Christmas metaphors now.

So listen to this frothy audio concoction of a Doctor Who podcast to find out & along the way enjoy such wonders as a 3 minute version of the story, a jolly morning at the Androzani barracks, a Take That song about alien trees and even a very special (fictional) guest star.

And the triumphant return of the Ood Cast Christmas theme song.

Jingle jingle jingle jingle jingle jingle jing…

  1. Oh my gosh! That summary skit at the start was amazing! So funny 🙂 I liked the inclusion of the Armstrong and Miller character too 🙂 OH! And that Sherlock skit too! So good! “I’ve lost my hobbit.” Brilliant!
    Also, Laura, I think that you should wear bells on your head more 🙂

  2. Congratulations, Oodcast, on making it to fifty-one ‘casts! It might not be Christmas, but New Year used to be in March, so you’re not that far out.

    Like Lian, I loved the Armstrong/Miller RAF Pilot – so obvious in retrospect, but that’s a mark of clever writing. I really enjoy the general banter, though. And any of Laura’s songs, of course.

    Oh and I got lots of Doctor Who stuff for Christmas too. 🙂

  3. Another fantastic podcast guys.

    Laura – a dodgy VHS recording of The Children of Green Knowe has been part of my family’s Christmas tradition since time immaterial. Ever seen it?

    I do have some bad news though – The Doctor Who Experience closed last month! I took some annual leave to come down from York to catch it. Anyone who didn’t make it or wants to go back is going to have to wait six months and take a trip to Cardiff!

    Keep making the brilliance.
