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.
Dennis Black-and-Asian returns to help us discuss Doctor Who Season 1, Episode 10, “The Doctor Dances.”
We rejoin our heroes as they unravel the mystery of the strange plague which rewrites human DNA to give people stylish gas masks and scars on the backs of their hands. We last left them surrounded by a horde of zombies looking for their Mummy. When the Doctor orders the child to his room, all of them obey.
They investigate the child’s room in the hospital and experiment with “dancing” after a quick chase through the hospital, pursued by the zombies. When Nancy is captured by the military, her path once again crosses the Doctor, Rose and Jack.
Jack saves the day in the end, by capturing the bomb that was set to destroy the ambulance. The Doctor and Rose in turn rescue him and prepare to take him on their next adventure. Your face red, your eyes wet. Doctor when his pants fell.
This week we are joined by Dennis Black-and-Asian as we discuss Doctor Who Season 1, Episode 9, “The Empty Child.”
The Doctor’s danger fetish leads him and Rose to London, 1941, in the middle of the Blitz as they chase a metal cylinder through the Time Vortex. He meets a group of plucky young British orphans who scrounge to survive in the streets of the city during the air raids. Meanwhile, Rose is swept off her feet and rescued by a devilishly charming and handsome man named Captain Jack Harkness. Investigating the mystery of the creepy, gas mask-wearing Empty Child, the Doctor returns to Albion Hospital where dozens of zombie-like victims have somehow transformed to have gas masks for faces. Rose and Jack find the Doctor just as the zombies wake and begin to close in on them…
There’s a war on and people are getting killed, we better call an Ambulance Chaser.
