As is now well known, Season 20 trails off with a whimper, and so Brendan, Nathan and Todd take a week off to allow our discussion of The King’s Demons to be conducted by shapeshifting robot replicas. And they do a great job!
Buy the story!
The King’s Demons was released on DVD in 2010. As usual, it was released on its own In the US, (Amazon US). In the UK, it was released in yet another uninspiring DVD box set, called Kamelion Tales (Amazon UK).
Notes and links
Fans of obsessively flying through the entirety of Doctor Who will certainly enjoy subscribing to Doctor Who: The Complete History, which is a series of beautifully-produced books chronicling, in obsessive detail, every Doctor Who story in the programme’s fiftysomething year history. Seriously, check it out.
Kamelion (spoiler alert!) has a key role in Christopher Bulis’s BBC Past Doctor Adventure The Ultimate Treasure, first published in 1997.
Picks of the week
Follow @WhoLabels on Twitter, for all your Doctor Who labels needs. He’s also on Facebook. And he’s brilliant. Unmissable.
Listen to Wang Chung’s fifth studio album The Warmer Side of Cool, and in particular, the tracks Praying to a New God and Snakedance (which, heartbreakingly, seems to have been removed from YouTube).
Read The Writer’s Tale: The Final Chapter, a book which includes a years-long email exchange between Benjamin Cook and Russell T. Davies, in which they discuss the production of Series 4 and the 2009 Specials, as well as TV in general, RTD’s earlier (and later) TV series, and writing in general.

Doctor Who in 10 Seconds
While Brendan tries to source a convincing stick-on goatee for his Season 8 episode of Doctor Who in Ten Seconds, you can enjoy his previous 7 episodes, in which he summarises the first 7 years of Doctor Who stories. So check out the playlist on YouTube.
Yesterday, we released this month’s commentary podcast on the 1983 classic Octopussy, which is Brendan’s favourite Rodgefilm. So that’s lovely.
Fans of the Rodge will also enjoy our other Rodgecasts, from For Your Eyes Only to Live and Let Die. Other Bonds are also available, of course. You can keep up with all the Bondfinger news on Twitter and Facebook.
