In this spoiler filled episode of Playing Doctor SPOILERS, Jennie and Ben discuss the 2014 X-mas special. There’s foul language and we’re not talking about the Christmas Goose.
Finally, the remaining episode from the Mike Federali sessions! He joins us to discuss Series 3’s Christmas episode, “The Runaway Bride,” where we meet Donna Noble on her wedding day. Her husband-to-be, Nerdy Black Renfield, has made a deal with a giant campy spider-empress to help bring her children forth from the center of the Earth.
Arachnophobes beware, if the Doctor can’t save the day, the entire planet will soon be overrun by a horde of Spider Babies!
It’s Christmas season and that means cookies, trees, presents and best of all, a Doctor Who Christmas special. This week we discuss the 2013 Christmas Special “The Time of the Doctor”.
Due to a mysterious truth field we can’t lie about how bad Clara is at cooking a turkey and how much of a b*tch Linda is when giving dating advice (or talking in general). Gran is ready for a game of naked twister with the strange Swedish doctor she meets and Dave is on about pigeons again. Sounds about like an average Christmas dinner.
We are all sad to see Matt Smith depart and we’re excited for the new season to start. Let’s all checkout Christmas in July and enjoy our five minutes in the sun on this week’s Playing Doctor SPOILERS episode.
Warning, there be SPOILERS ahead.
Americans still haven’t thawed their turkeys for Thanksgiving and we’re already putting up our Christmas trees at the Playing Doctor Podcast! This week we are joined by our long time friend Darryl Lewis of FlyingMonkeyMotoGear.com (he also made our awesome theme music) to discuss the Children in Need special and Christmas Invasion as we begin Series 2 of Doctor Who.
Time’s not the only thing that’s a bit wibbly-wobbly as the Doctor crashes the TARDIS into a truck and the Powell Estate itself just in time to get Rose home for Christmas. He’s got a new face and a touch of narcolepsy for the holidays and Rose is doing all the work to save Christmas from the Robot Santas of Doom Brass Section.
With spinning Christmas Trees of Death, Regeneration Energy Belches and finding Howard’s fruit in your night robes this promises to be one of the better Christmases in London until everyone climbs up on the roof when the Sycorax arrive.
You’ll want to bundle up and put on your winter clothes before you start dreaming of an Ashy Christmas of Death.
The Children in Need special can be viewed on Youtube here:

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.
