Show 9: The Tomorrow People (The Slaves of Jedikiah)

Show 9 is here, and this time we have a look at the very first story from the very first series of ITV's The Tomorrow People. This story was originally broadcast from April to June 1973.

As you will hear, we had a few things to say about this serial - it is a great series but sadly the opening episode is not representative of what the show became.

Joining the regular team of Paul, Mike and Andrew is Wendy from Sending a Wave (our sister Firefly/Serenity podcast) as well as Kevin (who is about to launch a splendid pub based podcast called The Great Barred.

The DVD of the serial can be purchased via the price comparison site on the end of this link (in fact it is cheaper to purchase it as part of the series one boxed set or if you really like it, you can get the whole lot for a very reasonable price by visiting Big Finish by clicking here (at the time we wrote this it was a fantastic £35!)

You can download this episode of Cadmium2 direct by clicking here.

Hope you enjoy the show - next up is BBC TV's Christmas serial The Box of Delights which is out in a fortnight on the 12th of December. Also, we really look forward to your thoughts on the shows we cover - either email us (see to the right) or leave a comment on the discussion board at our Facebook Group.

Show 8: Doctor Who (The Daleks)

The first Cadmium2 this month examines the second story of the first series of Doctor Who - the story that arguably put Doctor Who on the map. The Daleks, by Terry Nation, is a seven episode story that is available to buy as part of The Beginnings boxed set.

Thanks for the feedback that we have been receiving - we will cover some of that off in one of our December shows, which is in fact the first show that we have recorded since we launched - all of the first nine shows were recorded just as we put out the first couple of shows!

Show 8 can be downloaded by clicking here.

Next up in a fortnight is the first ever Tomorrow People story, with Wendy from Sending a Wave and Kevin Beaumont, who has also been heard on our sister show.

See you in a couple of weeks!

November Update...

Just to let you all know the details of what you can expect from Cadmium2 in November:

14th: Doctor Who (The Daleks)
28th: The Tomorrow People (The Slaves of Jedikiah).

We have the December shows already recorded as well, (more on those later) and then in November we are all taking a week off work to record the first batch of shows for 2008. We will be covering our first radio series, another Bond, more Doctor Who (of course) and an awful lot more.

We keep meaning to do radio and never seem to get around to it, but the poll we put up on the site a while back suggests that cult radio is as much on your agenda as cult TV, with films and books way down the list!

We also have plans to do extra episodes in the Summer so that you can take us with you on holiday! We are very pleased and encouraged by the number of downloads we are getting and by the feedback we are getting which suggests that we are getting something right. We had actually recorded the first nine shows pretty much before we started releasing the podcast so that is why we have not really featured a lot of your comments within the body of the show, that will change from show ten!

Please continued to give us feedback on the show, and thanks you all for your support so far!
