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:
We are joined by our good friend Darryl Lewis of FlyingMonkeyMotoGear.com as we discuss Doctor Who series 1, episode 8, “Father’s Day.” Darryl is the amazing talent behind our theme music and he writes a awesome blog about Motorcycles, Sci-Fi and Rock ‘n Roll, so check it out.
This time, Rose’s brilliant idea of the week is to go back and meet her father in his dying moments. Hilarity ensues when she saves his life instead, tearing a hole in the time space continuum. Giant bug-dinosaur-like creatures take advantage of the situation, terrorizing the town and all the British white trash within. It looks like the end for the Doctor when he becomes a crunchy snack for one of the Reapers, until Pete Tyler becomes the hero and sacrifices himself to set things right again.
If you want to survive breaking the Universe be sure you have your TARDIS key handy and Don’t Fear the Reaper!
