On this episode, I discuss two Doctor Who books I just obtained. The first is one that I used to check out from my University’s library system, a book by R.H. Langley called “The Doctor Who Error Finder”. This book looks through the original run of Doctor Who through to the 1996 Fox/BBC movie and collects all the filming and scripting errors. It’s a fun read if you have the episodes to hand.
The second book is “Running Through Corridors: Volume One by Robert Shearman and Toby Hadoke. In this book, the two authors watched through every episode of Doctor Who from “An Unearthly Child” onward and comment on what they like about each episode. Fun read so far.

The Cultdom Collective Commentary hiatus is nearly over, with production set to resume a week from today. Rand has a week to complete his commentaries on the 2016 X Files miniseries. Or maybe there’s no real deadline.
With Cultdom Commentaries seemingly a thing of the past, I decided to go it alone and record a commentary on something. I’ve decided to focus on the 10th season, the 2016 miniseries, of The X-Files.
So, here’s my commentary on the first episode, “My Struggle”, in which I take on Ian and Dave’s roles along with my own. For anyone who wanted to hear just me talk over an episode of something, here’s your chance.
If you’d like to join me on a future commentary, either leave a comment here, email me at radiofreecaemlyn at gmail, or comment on Twitter at radiofrecaemlyn.
It all begins with the start of Harry Chapin’s “Taxi” looped, which transitions to Pascal Pinon’s “Why Can’t I Sleep”. We hear from Phil Lapsley on C-SPAN’s BookTV talking about his book “Exploding the Phone”. This is interrupted by a famous clip from John Carpenter’s movie “They Live”. Aimee Mann’s “You Do” is looped for a brief, fleeting moment, giving way to “Into the Night” from the Twin Peaks soundtrack, by way of Angelo Badalamenti. Ken’s Last Ever Radio Extravaganza is heard talking about gravity being another way for fate, life can be as simple as a fall, it’s all so easy once you let go. We’ve got a QSL check from the SWLing Blog. Then we get to the Philip Glass set, with tracks from the “Koyaanisqatsi” album, with some Einstein on the Beach. We briefly hear the theme from Richard Hoagland’s “Other Side of Midnight” radio show. We then have clips from Terry Gilliam’s movie “Brazil”. Couldn’t stand the paperwork. Hidden within all of this is audio from when I met with an old friend I’ve not seen in 12 years. It all crashes down into Boards of Canada and more Philip Glass.
