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.
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.
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!

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”
