Welcome to the Podcast Roundup for September 2022 – our favourites in the worlds of CultBox. 

Our picks this month, in no particular order, are…

That Gaby Roslin Podcast S3 Ep2: Josette Simon OBE

The award-winning actor talks to Gaby about life and her loathing of labels. The chat also takes in her work across film, stage and screen, her dog Milo and Blake’s 7 (which she’s more than happy to talk about, contrary to popular opinion). Other work which gets a mention includes Wonder Woman, The Split, Anatomy of a Scandal and the recent BBC drama Crossfire.

Something Who: Eps 63 – Looks Familiar & 64 – Just A Bit Too Far(t)?

Special guest Toby Hadoke joins regulars Richard, Giles and Paul to discuss two Doctor Who stories, one from the show’s classic era and one from NuWho. Across two parts, they look for connections between two alien Invasion and doppelganger stones: 1975’s ‘The Android Invasion’ and the Eccleston Slitheen two-parter from 2005.

Real Dictators

Paul McGann concluded his six-part series on the life of Napoleon Bonaparte. After a short break, he began the story of Lenin. We still love these engaging history lessons from the Eighth Doctor!

You Are What You Love – Doctor Who with David K. Barnes

The Wooden Overcoats and Doctor Who Big Finish writer talks to Marissa Tandon about his love for the show; the conversation covers how it has influenced his life, career, dress sense and more! Barnes is an incredibly eloquent and entertaining guest and the conversation is a delight.

The History of Doctor Who Literature Ep43 – Death to the Daleks (with Paul Simpson)


Host Jason Miller talks to Paul Simpson (of Sci-Fi Bulletin) about the early days of the Doctor Who Target Books range. Paul relates tales of fascinating meetings with Terrance Dicks, Malcolm Hulke and Ian Marter. The conversation also covers Paul’s wider career and his connections to Doctor Who books right up to the present.
After the chat, there’s a pretty forensic look at the novelisation of ‘Death to the Daleks’ too.

Film Stories with Simon Brew

Film Quiz Podcast

This anarchic quiz pits three comedians against each other to test their film trivia knowledge. Host Nick Helm is engaging (if sweary and occasionally belligerent) and he’s assisted by Huge Davies who attempts to keep track of the scores.

So, happy listening… and do let us know if you have any recommendations too.
