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.
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!
Weakest Link Doctor Who Special
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!
