Witches Be Trippin’

Play

This week Jennie & Ben are joined by long time listener Kirby Bartlett-Sloan from The 20mb Doctor Who Podcast to discuss “The Shakespeare Code”, Episode 2 of Series 3.

After several months of having to wait until our episodes were posted before we could get Kirby’s Corrections™ for what we had said on the show we decided it would be quicker to get Kirby on the show so he could correct as we go! This episode was recorded before we started the summer convention season so Kirby has had plenty of time to get his notes together in preparation for this episodes corrections.

Tonight we travel back to jolly old England and meet Billy Shakespeare. He’s your average Elizabethan man-about-town who happens to be a pretty decent playwright, but that may be the only decent thing about this tomcat. Things are amiss at the old (new) Globe Theatre when the Witches of Eastwick (or Eastenders?) show up with brooms at hand. You’re a wizard now, Harry but this quidditch match is for keeps. Doomfinger and Bloodtide are after the Golden Snitch and despite their awkward innuendo laced names they just may win and release the Carrionites into our world.

Now the Doctor, the NotRose, and Billy Shakespeare are going to party like it’s 1599 because These Witches be Trippin

In this new Playing Doctor Spoilers! Episode Jennie and Ben take a look at “Time Heist” and “The Caretaker”. Short episode but not much to say. We take calls from Peter NotCapaldi and FotS* Lauren and get their take on the episodes. Ben curses a lot in this episode because he’s binge watching The Thick of It.

Ep-32: Judoon Tampoons on the Moon

Play

This week we are once again live at Intervention in Bethesda and are joined by fan favorite Ben Taylor to discuss episode one of the third season “Smith and Jones.”

We get our introduction to Martha Jones and her chaotic family. Many fans will remember Martha lovingly as “Not Rose” even though one of the Ben’s in the room thinks she’s second only to Martha as Tennent’s best Companion. We end up in hospital with a troop of space rhinos searching for a blood thirsty alien grandma.

New Ben complains (justifiably) about breaking the No Romance on My TARDIS rule and Regular Ben drinks a few gin and tonics to get through the day. For the record this is the first episode of Playing Doctor recorded wholly in a bar but it probably won’t be the last.

After a magical kiss from the Doctor Martha may start to swoon in front of the Judoon Platoon upoon the Moon and need a tampoon.

Her husband-to-be, Nerdy Black Renfield, has made a deal with a giant campy spider-empress to help bring her children forth from the center of the Earth.

Spoilers! – Series 8 Premiere

spoilers-stampA future version of Ben (with a cool British accent) joins the show today to discuss the Series 8 Premier in which we are introduced to Peter Capaldi and his Very Angry Eyebrows. On Playing Doctor Podcast, we adjust to regeneration much more quickly than Cabbagehead Clara.

Happy Moon Day!

Happy Moon Day everyone. Forty-five years ago today brave men from a tiny blue world stepped out of their rocket ship onto another world for the first time in human history. Let’s remember the bravery of all of those who worked tirelessly to get us to the Moon and let’s also take a moment to think about all the things we have that came from the technology boom associated with that mission.

Chances are we wouldn’t be communicating via the interwebz and using our tiny pocket computers if not for all of the technological advances associated with the race to the moon and our space program.

Let’s never forget the accomplishment we saw that day.
