Leon built a TARDIS!

Check out this video of Leon (aka Ponken) building his very own TARDIS in the back garden. Hmm, with a prop like this at our disposal... wonder if it might feature in future Who Back When videos. ;-)

About the Podcast

There are hundreds of Doctor Who TV stories out there and we intend to watch them all! Not just that – We'll watch, review, discuss, debate, rate and praise and/or poke holes in every episode of Doctor Who, starting with William Hartnell's first ever serial. That's right, we're working our way through Classic Who, from 1963 and onward, episode by episode and Doctor by Doctor. We're about four Doctors in so far. And in parallel, we're also reviewing all of New Who as well, starting with Eccleston in 2005. We're reviewing Matt Smith's episodes as the Eleventh Doctor at the mo. We occasionally dip a toe in more current NewWho, too, as well as review the odd audiobook, comic book and convention.

Meet the WBW crew!

Thank you for the iTunes reviews!

We're super grateful for all of the kind words our listeners have had to say about Who Back When. Everyone loves a compliment and we're no exception. And every new review that pops up on iTunes not only helps get the podcast noticed, but lets us know we're not just speaking into the emptiness of space.

We're always talking about new ways to thank you for your reviews. Here are some ways we've said thanks in the past.

Want to leave a review of your own? Go for it! Here's what some of our fans have had to say so far...

"If you are a Doctor Who fan, you must listen to this podcast! Awesome reviews, trivia and much more. Witty, funny and incredibly entertaining!"
– Likelists (US)
"I absolutely love this podcast, and it is the only one I listen to regularly... This podcast makes the horrible episodes (Web Planet) bearable, and the great ones even better."
– Davis676767 (US)
"The hosts are fun to listen to and are kind enough to read out any comments or reviews we listeners send in, adding a community sense to the whole thing. Definitely a recommended listen to all Who fans, old or new!"
– Gallifreyan Buccanear (UK)
"These guys are genuinely fun AND funny – they take you along on a magic carpet ride of irreverent reviews that are guaranteed to make your smile widen and your [CENSORED] harden."
– (NotTheDj) Mojo (US)
"The podcast has become an essential part of my Doctor Who experience, and I look forward to the next podcast episode just as much as the next episode of the show. Can't recommend it highly enough."
– Ertrov (US)
"This podcast is very well done! As a student who doesn't have a lot of time it is fun to listen to the podcast in between classes and almost feel like you watched an episode of the Doctor!"
– NewtoWho (US)
"This [Doctor Who podcasts] is a lot of fun, especially because of the wit and enthusiasm that the hosts display... Even though die-hard fans might take umbrage at their favorite show being poked at, at least it is done out of love and respect for this icon of U.K. Science Fiction."
– m@-chew (US)
"Very good reviews, quite funny in parts, serious in others, and now diversifying into other non classic shows... can't wait for the next episode."
– SmithyMarkUK (UK)
"This show is fantastic, it is wonderful, it is great... The daunting task of watching every single episode from way back when, 1963. Pity these boys, their love will send them down the rout of Dr. Who insanity, and we get to watch every single step of the way. Cheers boys."
– Selgri (US)
"I recommend this podcast for every Doctor Who fan who started watching with the 2005 reboot and now discovers the old stuff. Lots of information, which episodes to watch und which to avoid..."
– romal (Germany)
"Cracking reviews of every Who story from the beginning. Telling it like it is, the Good, the Bad, and everything in between, and beyond. Great stuff."
– Tartan Jeff (UK)
"It is one of the best, if not the very best Doctor Who podcast out there. It is funny, sincere and informative... If you were interested in watching or learning about Classic Who, please listen to this podcast."
– Ronin82x (US)
"From the very beginning, these podcasters have been engaging, funny and brilliant in their assessment of each tasty morsel of Who, be it a bite sized bit or a large, greasy mouthful... Why aren't you listening already???!!!"
– sinistersuperspy (Canada)
