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.
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.
Robin Hood is afraid of the monsters under his bed in this spoiler filled episode of Playing Doctor Spoilers. Regular Ben has returned from his recent expedition searching for the lost world of Gallifrey (hint: it wasn’t in Tibet) just in time to discuss the magic that is Peter Capaldi as the Doctor.
Thanks to Ben for returning as Co-host! You can read his blog at Reality Amuck and check out some of his other work at RA Comics.
This episode of Playing Doctor Podcast was filmed before a live studio audience.
We were invited to do a live show at Intervention 2014, so we thought, what better place to rant about our opinions on the worst companion to the Doctor? We’re joined by our friend Ben Taylor of 3 Drinks, 2 Guys, 1 Topic in this somewhat heated bracket-style nerd battle. Play along at home by filling in the chart below!
Finally, the remaining episode from the Mike Federali sessions! He joins us to discuss Series 3’s Christmas episode, “The Runaway Bride,” where we meet Donna Noble on her wedding day. 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.
Arachnophobes beware, if the Doctor can’t save the day, the entire planet will soon be overrun by a horde of Spider Babies!
A 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 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.
Mike Federali, mastermind behind Tidewater Comicon, joined Jennie & Ben to talk about “The Runaway Bride.” However, everyone had so much fun and it went so far off-topic that we decided to split it up into two shows. Follow Tidewater Comicon on Facebook for all the hot news about TWCC guests and fundraising events.
This week Jennie and Ben are joined by Drew Stewart to unravel the mysteries of Torchwood and the spooky things running around London.
An army of ghosts moves in to Planet Earth, giving its inhabitants something to be distracted by while the secret government organization Torchwood experiments with ripping a hole between dimensions. Shit gets real when Mickey shows back up, the ghosts turn into Cybermen, and Daleks pop out of a giant Easter Egg. The Doctor hatches a plan to not only rid the planet of the invaders but also to ditch his clingy companion in another world. Things may be going swimmingly now, but he knows that eventually they’d have relationship trouble, because Every Rose Has Its Thorn.
