Classic Doctor Who ran from 1963 until its cancellation in 1989. Much like its central character, The Doctor, the series itself regenerated in 2005 with a new look and all new adventures. For the past few weeks we’ve discussed the first season of the revived Doctor Who series and we are bringing together some of our previous guests to discuss the season as a whole. Joining us this week are former guests Ben Rollman, Grace Hebert, Dennis Black-and-Asian, Drew Stewart and The LadyFox.
When you’re dealing with something as big as Doctor Who, sometimes you want to jump right in and keep driving forward as fast as you can but occasionally it’s nice to slow down and look back when you Wrap That Rascal Up.
The LadyFox returns for episode 13, the season finale of Series 1: “The Parting of the Ways.”
The new and improved Daleks are back and have taken over the Earth via mind-numbing reality television programming (explaining the Honey Boo-Boo show). The Doctor and his companions have only 22 minutes to figure out how to foil the Dalek plan before the enemy attacks Satellite 5. Rose is tricked into returning to her own time, but she is determined to make a stand with her friends.
All bets are off and people start to die as the Daleks make their way to the top, you may not want to hide on the lower levels this week as Rose and the Doctor have a Time Vortex Make Out Session.
Series 1 of Doctor Who is almost finished and this week we get our good friend The LadyFox to help us discuss episode 12, “Bad Wolf.”
The future was promised to be great and bountiful but instead the world has been plunged in to Reality TV hell. Game shows rule the airwaves and if you’re unfortunate enough to be chosen as a contestant you better play to win, because only the winners get to live!
The Doctor, Rose and Captain Jack wake up in the middle of various game shows and have to get their bearings fast because there’s huffing and puffing outside and it sounds like they’re living in a house of straw. It might be time to panic as we find out Who’s Afraid of the Bad Wolf!
Welcome to Playing Doctor SPOILERS! If you haven’t watched all of Doctor Who through the fifth episode of series seven, “The Angels Take Manhattan”, 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.
We say goodbye to the Ponds and hello to some spooky adventures in 1938 New York City. This very Film Noir influenced episode will have you on the edge of your seat.
As always, don’t listen to the entire show if you don’t want to hear possible spoilers when we discuss “The Angels Take Manhattan.”
