Ep-42: Here Comes the Sun, Deedle-Deedle Dee

Back from an exciting weekend at Intervention 6 Jennie and Ben didn’t even have time to unpack before they were off to the Kempsville Area Library in Virginia Beach to record a live show as part of the library’s “Evening of the Doctor” program. As always the crew had a great time visiting with their library friends.

One of the events during the Evening was a vote for your favorite companion. The results were rather interesting:

  1. Donna Noble
  2. Ponds (both)
  3. Sarah Jane Smith

There were some interesting responses added, such as: Handles, K9, and “Not Clara”.

This week Jennie and Ben discuss the third season episode “42” which coincidentally is the 42nd episode of the Playing Doctor Podcast. The Doctor and Martha land on a spaceship that’s about to crash into a sun in– wait for it — forty-two minutes. A mysterious “infection” threatens to kill the crew before they have a chance to crash and burn in the sun. Their only hope is to know their Beatles trivia and avoid escape pods.

Special thanks go out to Librarian Denise Walker and Crystal Parker for inviting us to the show and once again putting up with our antics. We really enjoyed ourselves and were honored to once again be asked to participate in the evening’s events.

If you’re in the area be sure to check out some of the other fun events at the Kempsville Area Library.
