'The Next Doctor' commentary

Every so often, the world of genre filmmaking recruits a noted musician. David Bowie in ‘Twin Peaks’. Alanis Morrisette in ‘Dogma’. Britney Spears in ‘Crossroads’ - and now it’s the turn of TV’s ‘Doctor Who’, as noted misery guts Morrisey is taking on the mantle of The Next Doctor! Will his strident dietary activism regularly rear its head? Will he expouse some incomprehensible political views?

Find out the answer to ALL THIS - and much, much more, as WHINE+SPACE uncork the Brandy Sauce for ‘The Next Doctor’!

'Avengers: Infinity War' review

It’s the big one!

After literally years of anticipation, the purple man himself, the ambassador for Big and Tall stores everywhere, Thanos, is out and about, loud and proud - and ready to rumble. The Marvel Cinematic Universe has spent many years and many films getting to this stage, so the only question that remains is ‘do they pull it off?’. Well, that’s what WHINE+SPACE are here to figure out.

'Spider-Man: Homecoming' commentary

Ah, Spider-man 6!

Where will this incredibly successful and long running franchise go next? How will Peter deal with the death of Emma Stone’s Gwen Stacey at the end of the previous film and, beyond Tobey Maguire’s delightful cameo in Avengers 3: Civil War, will Peter’s inclusion into the Marvel Cinematic Universe go down smooth?


The answer to all these questions - and many more - lie within, so fire up your Microsoft Zunes and get ready to go swinging, Spider-friends!

The Doctor Who Rewatch Podcast - 'Journey's End'


It’s fair to say that WHINE+SPACE haven’t exactly flown through Series 4 of NEW WHO. In fact, you could reasonably suggest it had spanned multiple years. But now’s not the time for bitter recriminations, now’s the time to gaze in wonder, mouths agape, at the realisation that we’re finally at ‘Journey’s End’, the series 4 finale - and an episode that concludes a whole host plot lines and themes that have been present since the very beginning of the Russell T Dog era.

Will Rose finally see Wilf again? Will Dave Ross light up his Reality Bong? Will Tennant blow his brains out by the end of the episode? It’s time to find out, so hit play on your Microsoft Zune……NOW!

The Doctor Who Rewatch Podcast - 'The Stolen Earth'


Aye-aye, there’s been some thieving going down!

Yeah, sooooooo, it looks like some devil has only gone and half-inched the whole planet whilst no-one was looking. If it wasn’t for all the bloomin’ calamity its caused, we’d almost respect the culprit. But WHO has done this interplanetary burglarisation? WHY would they possibly do such a thing? DO they realise that this is going to mess with Daylight Savings Time?

Find out - as WHINE+SPACE look back at ‘The Stolen Earth’!

The Doctor Who Rewatch Podcast - 'Turn Left'


Ah, choices, choices!

You just can’t escape them. Perhaps it’s deciding whether or not to let yourself drown when killing a giant red spider. Maybe it’s deciding to play Rose in a really weird way. It could even be choosing whether or not to remember that the Holocaust happened - which Donna appears to wobble on a bit in this episode. But choosing to recognise genocide isn’t the only choice that Donna makes this week, oh no - she’s going to be choosing the very direction of her entire life. Will she choose right - or turn wrong?

'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2' commentary


The return of the one-inch man!

Yes, WHINE+SPACE have reached the point in our pre-Avengers retrospective where we cast our eyes back over James Gunn’s sequel to ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’, ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. How will ‘Vol. 2’ shape up to its immensely popular predecessor, in retrospect? Will the LOLZ fly as thick and fast as they did in the cinema? Will we approve of the film’s focus on Starlord’s father? Will we ever verbalise that ‘unspoken thing’ that lies between us?

'Black Panther' review


WHINE+SPACE returns to the marvellous world of…um, Marvel, as we review the hotly anticipated ‘Black Panther’! We last saw T’challa onscreen in 2016’s ‘Avengers 3: Captain America’s Civil War’ and since then the subject of race and representation has become less and less relevant, essentially disappearing from the headlines. Um, wait. No. The opposite.

With ‘Black Panther’ coming at what might be just the right time, we sit down and discuss what we thought of the film and what it means for the future of superhero movies, and indeed Hollywood cinema in general.

The Doctor Who Rewatch Podcast - 'Midnight'

Oh, what a night!



Rather than take four to six months off in between episodes of the Doctor Who Rewatch Podcast, we’ve decided to be unpredictable wild men by leaping back into the fray - and this time we’re focusing on one of the most unusual and well regarded episodes of Who out there - Russell T-Dog’s ‘Midnight’.

The odds are stacked against old T-Dog. An episode that has to be written at top speed to replace one being ejected from the line-up. A tiny amount of time. An insignificant budget. But, like the certified wizard he is, T-Dog takes these restrictions - and delivers us something really rather special
