JC and Rita are back and in rare form. With JC all hyped up on Nyquil, we fight to the death on Daleks vs The Weeping Angels (trust me, you don’t want to miss that one). JC goes bonkers over Doctor Who being excluded from the opening ceremonies of the 2012 London Olympics. We talk about the Brooklyn Monster and a man who was cured of Stereoblindness by going to see Hugo in 3d!
We give you the scoop on a sequel to Independence Day, what new series the executive producers of Walking Dead are bringing to AMC and the end of Eureka.
We have a very special Transmissions Received segment where we get to meet the labstaff of Doctor Geek’s Laboratory – our new brother podcast on the ESO Network.
For the Retro Review, we give you the low down on the Star Trek the Next Generation season one blu-rays.
In addition to the earlier segments on Doctor Who, we remember the wonderful companion of the fourth doctor, Mary Tamm. We talk Matt Smith on the cover of EW and we give you some 50th anniversary and series 7 spoilers.
We wrap this baby up with our True Blood review.
Folks, if you’ve never tried TFA before…this is the one to listen to!
The show schedule and links are after the jump!
Tomorrow on Transmissions From Atlantis Episode Nine – we give you all the Poppins you can handle!
We’ll talk the opening ceremonies of the Olympics and the absence of a certain citizen of Gallifrey. We’ll give you the scoop on the Star Trek the Next Generation Season One Blu Rays in our Retro Review and we also have a lengthy interview with the cast of the new podcast sensation – Doctor Geek’s Laboratory.
In our Who segment, we’ll remember the beautiful Mary Tamm and we’ll have a segment on JC’s favorite Who villain (The Daleks) versus Rita’s Favorite (The Weeping Angels) that you simply do not want to miss.
All that and much more coming at you tomorrow!
The woman who brought us the Doctor’s first Gallifreyan companion, Romana, has passed away. Mary Tamm, age 62, lost her battle with cancer in a London hospital yesterday according to an article on the BBC website. A veteran on both small and big screen, Tamm’s film career spanned 39 years. She also was active on stage.
Tamm played Romana I opposite the fourth Doctor Tom Baker for 26 episodes in 1978-79 beginning with the Ribos Operation. Her last appearance as Romana would be in 1979′s The Armageddon Factor (Part Six) when she was “regenerated” into actress Lala Ward.
“She was a darling companion and wonderfully witty and kind,” Baker said in an issued statement, “I’m so sorry to hear of her death.”
“She had a great zest for life,” her agent Barry Langford told the press, “She was a fantastic actress – she played stage parts of such range, parts that would take your breath away. She could play any role, and do so wonderfully.”
Mary is survived by her husband Marcus Ringrose, daughter Lauren and seven year old grandson Max.
We here at Transmissions From Atlantis offer our condolences to family.
