Children have gone missing from a chilly London suburb and they’re not visiting the London Olympics. This week we are joined by Tommy V and Lauren to help us discuss the cold summer Olympics set in the crazy future year 2012.
In a rare editorial move, we’re lifting the curtain and letting you see a glimpse of In the Console room. Before the show starts (and even after the credits) you’ll get to hear a bit of the pre-show debauchery and see what it takes to get everyone on the same page and get the show started.
Most agree this isn’t the best episode of Doctor Who and at some point we may get a little distracted while talking about the episode. No worries because when Tommy V gives us the “Tom Baker Eyes” and Lauren starts inappropriate relations with Simba the only thing left for Jennie and Ben to do is put Fingers to Lips.
Are you a socially awkward fan of ELO? Do you enjoy basement potluck dinners? Have you ever watched Doctor Who and thought, ” There’s way too much Doctor and not nearly enough Man-on-Concrete love action? The we have the episode for you!
This week we’re Playing Doctor with our semi-regular guest and long-time friend of the show Dennis Black-n-Asian as we discuss “Love and Monsters”.
Lovable loser Elton, already obsessed with ELO, discovers the magic of the Doctor and his companion. He loves the Doctor so much that he is determined to get close to him in the only way he can–by sleeping with Jackie Tyler.
When a mysterious stranger joins the group, strange things start happening to LINDA. But the story has a happy ending, as Elton trips over a strange piece of tile and falls in love.
Sticks and stones may break Elton’s bones as he enters the bizarre world of the Tile F**ker!
It’s a normal day for the Doctor and Rose, which starts of course with at least 6 impossible things before breakfast then rounded out with being stranded on a planetoid in orbit around a black hole by mid-afternoon. We meet the Ood, a race of strangely faced creatures that remind us of (insert your answer here). Before long, the Doctor finds himself deeply entrenched in man’s timeless battle against evil: avoiding commitment with a clingy companion.
The Ood might be the perfect servants, but no matter how good they are at laundry, nothing can remove Satan’s Pit Stains.
It’s 1953 and as London prepares for Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation something sinister is afoot in Muswell Hill. Mysterious Men in Black are abducting blanket covered grandmas and something is fishy with the telly.
Sean Devereux joins Jennie and Ben to discuss “The Idiot’s Lantern” as The Doctor and Rose meet The Wire and have a Fifties Face Off!

TARDIS racer #42 sponsored in part by Cybus Industries.
When the TARDIS crash lands–again–the Doctor and crew find themselves in an alternate universe where Jackie and Pete Tyler are still together, Mickey really is Rickey, and of course, people travel in zeppelins. When they discover something fishy going on with the Cybus Industries brand Bluetoofs everyone’s wearing, they investigate with their new friends in the Mystery Machine.
You can’t always trust the A/S/L in this parallel universe because sometimes it’s a hot blonde, and sometimes it’s the Cybersexmans!
Mickey tags along with Rose and the Doctor on his first off-planet adventure. They find themselves on a spaceship 3000 years in the future, where time windows have been opened into 18th century France. Mysterious clockwork robots are stalking Reinette, also known as Madame De Pompadour.
Russell T Davies got the idea to write a love story for the Doctor while researching for the 3-part serial from 2005, “Casanova,” which also starred David Tennant. It is also (apparently) inspired by the novel, “The Time Traveller’s Wife”
This week we cross the time streams and travel back to the crazy disco era of 1975 and the second episode of the Tom Baker era. Join the Fourth Doctor, Sarah Jane Smith and Surgeon Lieutenant Harry Sullivan on their first trip in the TARDIS. With an unfortunate twist of the helmic regulator Harry (a.k.a. Proto-Starburns) sends the crew to the distant future beyond the 30th Century and into a world of cellophane wrap slug trails, green bubble wrap turds and giant space wasps from space.
If you think the characters on British TV drama’s are stodgy and uptight wait until you meet the crew of Nerva Beacon. Perhaps good ole Tom can warm their frozen hearts with his toothy smile and a jelly baby. Now if he could keep Harry from flirting with Sarah Jane we might all be able to save humanity from a fate worse than death. It’s the Bubble Wrap of Death and it’s going to keep this episode fresh.

It’s Christmas season and that means cookies, trees, presents and best of all, a Doctor Who Christmas special. This week we discuss the 2013 Christmas Special “The Time of the Doctor”.
Due to a mysterious truth field we can’t lie about how bad Clara is at cooking a turkey and how much of a b*tch Linda is when giving dating advice (or talking in general). Gran is ready for a game of naked twister with the strange Swedish doctor she meets and Dave is on about pigeons again. Sounds about like an average Christmas dinner.
We are all sad to see Matt Smith depart and we’re excited for the new season to start. Let’s all checkout Christmas in July and enjoy our five minutes in the sun on this week’s Playing Doctor SPOILERS episode.
Like many Whovians, my Christmas wish will be fulfilled with another Doctor Who special, and another regeneration episode at that! With the recent 50th anniversary special and a new Doctor on the horizon, it seems like a good point to reflect a bit on the 11 (12?) men who have fully portrayed the Doctor to this point.
Seeing as how soccer (nee football) is one of the favorite past times of the UK, as is watching Doctor Who, I thought I’d put together a roster for Gallifrey Wanderers FC using each incarnation’s personality traits as the deciding factor on the position they would play. Continue reading →
The Doctor is reunited with his old companions, Sarah Jane Smith and tin dog K-9 in the investigation of an eerily successful school as we travel back in time to discuss season 2, episode 3 “School Reunion” with long time friend of the show Drew Stewart. In addition to the Krillitanes, the heroes also find themselves battling the green eyed monster of jealousy. Rose and Sarah Jane vie for the Doctor’s attention, while Mickey desperately tries to keep a foothold in his relationship with Rose.
Be sure to get your diabeetus medicine and eat all of your chips so you can figure out Sarah Jane and Rose won’t be torturing the midget or walking the Mickey with the Non-Sexual Doctor in this episode of Playing Doctor because it’s deadlock sealed by the bat people from space.
