It's time for the second Radiosonic podcast! Chatting in real time about their influences are [livejournal.com profile] aralias, [livejournal.com profile] x_los, [livejournal.com profile] bagheera_san, and [livejournal.com profile] neveralarch, with the help of [livejournal.com profile] bessyboo as technical support, time keeper, and thinker of thoughts. Talking to us from the past or the future are [livejournal.com profile] vonquixote and [livejournal.com profile] birdsarecalling. This podcast is about what influences the Radiosonic writers, in particular: what we stole from Doctor Who and Big Finish (consciously or unconsciously) and what we chose not to steal.

The podcast also contains two rough clips of the first episode to go into production, episode 2: The Shackles of the Wolf. These clips are from the very first readthrough with the actors. The director has yet to issue direction, the pacing is off thanks to Skype's lag and my dodgy cutting, the audio quality is bad, and the sound effects are being read in by the Production Manager. Nevertheless, it seemed a nice thing to put into the podcast since we have these clips, and it should be interesting to see how radically different the scenes sound by the time the episode is actually finished.

N.B. Although we talk about the relative gayness of the writing team and our roots in fanfiction, it is worth noting that there is no explicit Doctor/Master slash in series 1.

Please enjoy the podcast.

Great podcast! I particularly appreciated the point that the Doctor's ability to travel through time isn't used to its fullest unless we encounter aliens like the Draconians at different stages in their development. I agree completely! That was something that I particularly liked about the portrayal of the ice warriors in _The Curse of Peladon_. Oh, and the snippets from the first episode are incredibly tantalizing. All of the voice impressions are excellent, but the Jacobi!Master impression stands out as really, really wonderful.

That's very kind of you, especially since I'm struck by how not-quite-right it is. Still working on it. Always, always still working on it.

I rather enjoyed listening to that! I'd have enjoyed it a lot more if I'd actually been able to make it into the live discussion - Brianna's story sounds amazing in exactly that sort of cracky gonzoid way that 'Gridlock' is amazing and Beth's thoughts on Cybermen are pleasingly on-base. It would have been nice to applaud them to their faces... umm, voices.
