FRS Episode 12: ‘Let's Kill Hitler’ Matt Smith

While Garfield and the Boomtown Rats may not like 'em. I Love Mondays right now. It's my second favourite day of the week! It's not as good as Saturdays obviously. Saturdays are the day we get a BRAND NEW episode of Doctor Who! But Mondays are pretty damn cool, yeah. Cause Mondays mean FAST RETURN SWITCH!

It's 'Let's Kill Hitler' we chat over this week and we'll continue to do so after each episode of this series. For its ENTIRE run!

There's a good joke hidden in this one. We had to have one eventually right? It's right near the end though. And the delivery is terrible. But it's still a good joke. Fanton didn't think so. But I do. So there. Can you spot it?

Ch Ch Ch Ch Changes ( I wuz I wuz)


Change has come to FRSwitch and we think you'll find you like it! Up until today our humble podcast always launched on a Sunday. Nothing wrong with that. We all like to worship the good Doctor of a weekend. Today however is a Monday and Monday shall be our home from now on.

The main catalyst of this slight temporal shift is Matt Smiths oncoming triumphant return to our screens NEXT SATURDAY! Our new weekday launch window allows plenty of time to watch the latest, greatest Doctor Who episodes a couple of times and then comment those bitches right up! WOOT! FRSwitch is gonna be topical for once!

We hope you'll join us in the celebration! Don't forget to tweet us @FRSwitch, yeah? Get in early enough and we might even be able to mention ya on the show!

See ya next week! When Fast Return Switch will be covering "Lets Kill Hitler!"

Oh my Goodness, I can't wait!

Love Woaf,

FRS Episode 11: ‘The Mind Robber’ Patrick Troughton

A Podcast? On a Monday? Are we losing our minds?

Don't worry listners! We haven't had our minds robbed. There is a very good reason for me having to edit three bloody podcasts in two days when I'm quite busy enough thank you very much. And all will be revealed soon. But first entertain yourself with Andys Fanton, Weston and Woodford as we enjoy an excellent Patrick Trousers story!

FRS Episode 10: 'Partners in Crime' David Tennant

'And Then There Were Two'

It's just Mr Weston and myself (Woaf) this time round. Which means no-one has to share a mike! Luxury. At the last possible minute we decide that 'Partners In Crime' was the episode to yabber over. Beers are drunked, doughnuts are eated and a deep Bromance is formed (in my mind anyway).

A mystery is finally laid to rest...

In one or two of our podcasts of late, there's been some talk of a mythical advert featuring Buster Merryfield (of Uncle Albert fame) advertising the popular snack Hula-Hoops. Now, this has been a long running joke mystery, and something that none of us has ever been able to prove the existence of.

Until now.

Idly surfing the net today, I came across a reference to this Holy Grail, and shortly after the trail led to the advert itself. It IS real, and Mr Fanton can sleep soundly for the first time in 14 years.

And, if you're curious, here it is in all its glory.

FRS Episode 9: 'Paradise Towers' Sylvester McCoy

EXPLICIT CONTENT WARNING (especially in part b)

By popular imaginary demand Fast Return Switch is laying it on thick again this Sunday with another multi part podcast. Being far to awesome to be contained in a solitary hour the Sylvester McCoy classic 'Mel wants to go swimming' is covered this week over two highly informative podular castings.

The correct listening order is 'a' then 'b'. That's 'a' followed by 'b'. Just like the cassette tapes from the 80's. You remember the 80's right? I hope so. It really helps when listening to us...

We're on Twitter!

Just a very brief post to let you all know that Fast Return Switch is now on Twitter! So, if you'd like to follow us and find out what we're up or if you'd just like to send us some comments/abuse, we are @FRSwitch.

The picture of the lovely Alex Kingston is entirely gratuitous, and has little to do with this, save for the fact it looks a little like she could be Tweeting in that picture (she's not though).

FRS Episode 8: 'The King's Demons' Peter Davison


I was very careful to make sure we got our explicit tag on iTunes. It made me comfortable knowing that we could say what ever we wanted without fear of causing undue offence or distress. As I'm a bit slow in the brainbox however, I never thought to throw up a warning on these here blog posts. I've been bunging these things up willy nilly and couple of four letter words have snuck into our previous podcasts that you may of not been prepared for. For this I can only apologise.

Another thing I can only apologise for is the following podcast. We're still finding our feet here at Fast Return Switch. At the time of recording we had yet to work out an appropriate level of alcohol consumption and decided to try our hand at recording post public house. This, I feel, was a mistake.

So I'm sorry. I'm sorry we don't really talk about the episode. I'm sorry Peter Davison doesn't get the love he deserves in his FRS d├ębut (we did record a much superior Davison fan commentary before but my bloody computer done eated it). I'm sorry we slur a lot. I'm sorry we often fail to make any sense. I'm sorry we forget how to hold microphones. And most of all I'm sorry, really sorry, to the French.
