Great New Dr. Who Podcast
I have enjoyed every episode of this show so far. I find it to be similar to "The Incomparable" and "Verity". Like these shows, "Secrets of Dr. Who" also features panelists who know the series well and who have intelligent discussion on each episode.
The host of the show, Father Roderick, is a Catholic priest from the Netherlands who has been producing high-quality shows for almost a decade. His shows are not geared towards Catholics necessarily—They are rather meant to reach a global audience. His style is welcoming and never "preachy". Some of the show's panelists have a deep background in theology and philosophy, which actually enriches the discussion.
In the end, they are all big Dr. Who fans talking about the show in a way that I find enjoyable. I recommend adding this show to your list.
This is a must listen for Doctor Who fans. The hosts talk about each new Doctor Who episode as it is released, starting with Season 8. They talk about what happened in the episode, the themes, the links to classic Doctor Who episodes, and where they think the show might be going. Check it out!
