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!
This week Jennie and Ben discuss Doctor Who, Series 1, Episode 7, “The Long Game.” Due to tampering with the neutron flow of our TARDIS’ Inversion Matrix Overdrive Circuits we don’t have a guest this week so we’ll go it on our own.
It’s the year 200,000 and The Doctor takes Rose and Adam to Station 5, where the news is created. Things are heating up on the lower levels while management is keeping cool upstairs. Is it love in an elevator? Is this the week Rose will decide to go “downstairs” on The Doctor? Does he need that as much as Adam needs another hole in his head?
Probably not, but if you watch Doctor Who closely this week you might get a glimpse of a few naughty things including the ever sexy sight of Boe’s Balls.
This week we are Playing Doctor with special guest Greg Harbin, co-host of “The Ready Room” on Trek.FM as we discuss Doctor Who Season 1, Episode 6, “Dalek” and we even find time for a barrel roll to make Greg feel at home.
When you’re rich enough to own the Internet and have a 54 story basement you tend to accumulate a few odds and ends and that’s what The Doctor and Rose find when they meet Henry van Statten, the richest jerk on Earth in the “future” year 2012. Among his collection of odd alien artifacts are a Slitheen arm, a Cyberman head and one living specimen (if you didn’t guess what it is by reading the title, spoiler warning, it’s a Dalek).
The Doctor bares his chest to van Statten and Rose makes a new friend but we all learn a valuable lesson, no matter what you do and not matter how much it begs you Don’t Pet a Dalek!
This week we are joined by special guest Tom Velure as we discuss Doctor Who Season 1, Episode 3, “The Unquiet Dead.”
It’s Christmas in Cardiff and The Doctor’s new pal Charlie joins in the adventure as the dead take to the streets to sing a Christ mas Carol or two. Rose doesn’t like their tone but in the end she finds it was a real gas.
Once things settle down it looks like there’s time at last for a holiday full of… Dickens’ Cider.
