This week we take a timely trip with some investigators on the trail of The Doctor and a blue box, find out how to liven up date nights and get down and dirty in the garden

On the same day Jodie Whittaker's Doctor Who Easter special landed on TV, the first episode of this much-anticipated podcast was released on BBC Sounds.

Not that the titular character has put in much of an appearance so far apart from the occasional message warning of a major threat to Earth.

Instead, we meet the stars of a podcast dedicated to unravelling the secrets of a mysterious 'blue box' that keeps cropping up around London, and various potentially related weird goings-on such as a diet company that suddenly vanished 14 years ago after its customers started dying.

If the latter enigma sounds familiar then that's because it's the plot of Partners in Crime from the David Tennant and Catherine Tate era - and the podcast promises lots of other fun references for fans to nod knowingly at.

Like in all the best Doctor Who stories, you immediately feel like you've know the characters for ages.

And the first episode ends with a danger of a cliffhanger that will make you hit the subscribe button faster than a Weeping Angel can move in the dark.

WHERE TO START: There's a trailer but if you like Doctor Who you may as well just get stuck right in to episode one.
