Show 5: James Bond (Tomorrow Never Dies)

Show 5 has been released today. With Wendy from Sending a Wave as a guest reviewer, we get stuck in after watching the 18th Bond movie. This is the first movie we have covered on Cadmium 2, please let us know what you think.

You can download show 5 directly by clicking here.

That's it for this month, next month we look at the last three episodes of the opening Doctor Who adventure (by some known as The Tribe of Gum) as well as The Stone Tape - a 1970s play by Nigel Kneale! We will update you with release dates closer to the time.

It's no secret that I am a massive fan of Big Finish's Dalek Empire series. Easily the strongest spin-off range they've produced to date and although, in my opinion, Series 3 was two episodes too long, it was still extremely well done and starred the future 10th Doctor himself, David Tennant!

So now we're onto Series 4. When Andrew and I interviewed Nick Briggs earlier in the year, he actually broke off from writing it to talk to us! This series goes back in time a bit to a point during the first series (I believe). Very little is known about what we can expect but, in a beautiful little coup, BF have snared the talents of New Doctor Who's Mickey Smith (Noel Clarke) to star as Kade in Dalek Empire 4: The Fearless. It's a four part story (as opposed to Series 3's six) and Part One is released this month.

On the basis of the previous three series I strongly urge you to buy this. It's excellent drama, well-acted and produced and if it maintains the high standards they've set themselves it should be cracking...

This hasn't appeared anywhere else yet (that I'm aware of) so I hope you like the cracking poster they've produced...

Nick Briggs Interview - Show 4

Hello, it's September and we can now announce what our two shows will be this month.

The first, show 4, which is out on the 12th of this month, is an interview with Nick Briggs, who is the producer of the Doctor Who range of the Big Finish audios. He also provides a lot of the alien voices for the current series of Doctor Who, most notably the Daleks and the Cybermen. It's a cracking interview, and we have been invited back for another recording so we may get to speak to him again!

Show 5, which is out on the 26th is our discussion on the 18th James Bond Film, Tomorrow Never Dies, starring Pierce Brosnan. Joining us on that one is Wendy Scott, who is a presenter on Sending a Wave, the Firefly/Serenity podcast, and a massive Bond/Brosnan fan.

So that is what we are doing in September, if you have any feedback for us our email address is on the panel to the right!
