Ep-012 Deus Equis Machine

Play

This week we are joined by Drew Stewart, TOS editor for Trek.FM as we discuss Doctor Who season one, episode eleven, “Boom Town.”

You can also find Drew around the Internets @doubleofive on Twitter and Star Wars Revisted News.

Like a bad penny, Margaret Blaine the Slitheen turns up again, this time as the mayor of Cardiff. Up to her old tricks, she plans on building an unsafe nuclear power station right on the rift. When it ultimately melts down, the Earth will finally be destroyed and her family will be avenged.

Meanwhile, a strange love triangle– or is it a square?– is forming between Rose, Mickey, and her time travelling companions. Can they put their hormones on a shelf for long enough to once again save the Earth from destruction?

I’m not always mayor of Cardiff, but when I am I use a Deus Equis Machine.

Ep-011 The Doctor When His Pants Fell

Play

Dennis Black-and-Asian returns to help us discuss Doctor Who Season 1, Episode 10, “The Doctor Dances.”

We rejoin our heroes as they unravel the mystery of the strange plague which rewrites human DNA to give people stylish gas masks and scars on the backs of their hands. We last left them surrounded by a horde of zombies looking for their Mummy. When the Doctor orders the child to his room, all of them obey.

They  investigate  the child’s room in the hospital and experiment with “dancing” after a quick chase through the hospital, pursued by the zombies. When Nancy is captured by the military, her path once again crosses the Doctor, Rose and Jack.

Jack saves the day in the end, by capturing the bomb that was set to destroy the ambulance. The Doctor and Rose in turn rescue him and prepare to take him on their next adventure. Your face red, your eyes wet. Doctor when his pants fell.

Ep-010 Ambulance Chaser

Play

This week we are joined by Dennis Black-and-Asian as we discuss Doctor Who Season 1, Episode 9, “The Empty Child.”

The Doctor’s danger fetish leads him and Rose to London, 1941, in the middle of the Blitz as they chase a metal cylinder through the Time Vortex. He meets a group of plucky young British orphans who scrounge to survive in the streets of the city during the air raids. Meanwhile, Rose is swept off her feet and rescued by a devilishly charming and handsome man named Captain Jack Harkness. Investigating the mystery of the creepy, gas mask-wearing Empty Child, the Doctor returns to Albion Hospital where dozens of zombie-like victims have somehow transformed to have gas masks for faces. Rose and Jack find the Doctor just as the zombies wake and begin to close in on them…

There’s a war on and people are getting killed, we better call an Ambulance Chaser.

Welcome to Playing Doctor SPOILERS! If you haven’t watched all of Doctor Who through the second episode of series 7, “Dinosaurs on a Spaceship”, you don’t want to listen to this episode. If you are caught up but don’t want to hear rumors and spoilers about the upcoming series, you don’t want to listen to this episode.

This week’s SPOILERS episode is a little late due to our drive to the Baltimore Comic-Con so we spend the first part of the show talking about BCC, Con Crud and bathroom hygiene.

Ep-009 Don’t Fear the Reaper

Play

We are joined by our good friend Darryl Lewis of FlyingMonkeyMotoGear.com as we discuss Doctor Who series 1, episode 8, “Father’s Day.” Darryl is the amazing talent behind our theme music and he writes a awesome blog about Motorcycles, Sci-Fi and Rock ‘n Roll, so check it out.

This time, Rose’s brilliant idea of the week is to go back and meet her father in his dying moments. Hilarity ensues when she saves his life instead, tearing a hole in the time space continuum. Giant bug-dinosaur-like creatures take advantage of the situation, terrorizing the town and all the British white trash within. It looks like the end for the Doctor when he becomes a crunchy snack for one of the Reapers, until Pete Tyler becomes the hero and sacrifices himself to set things right again.

If you want to survive breaking the Universe be sure you have your TARDIS key handy and Don’t Fear the Reaper!
