Doctor Who is BACK, and so are we, now with a Scooby Doo Mystery House. ZOINKS!
This episode has zero to do with Cinco de Mayo because this week Jennie and Ben discuss the newest season and episode 4, ” Knock Knock”
This is a Spoilers episode so don’t listen if you’re not caught up to Season 10, Episode 4!
Don’t forget to stop by and meet Jennie and Ben at Tidewater Comicon May 13-14 at the Virginia Beach Convention Center. They’re at Artist Alley Table 912! Get more details at http://tidewatercomicon.com/
This week Jennie and Ben discuss “Before the Flood” episode 4 of the 9th season. We weren’t too happy about this one but what can you do.
We discuss spoilers from the episode and lots of talk about bootstraps, like the doctor said, Google it. Apparently lots of folks did as there was a spike in Google trends for searches for “bootstrap” on Saturday night and Sunday.
This week Jennie and Ben are joined by long time friend of the Show, Darryl Lewis to discuss Season 3, Episode 10.
Sally Sparrow and her Scooby Doo gang of Mystery Investigators check out a derelict house in London. There, they discover the race known as the Weeping Angels who kill by sending their victims back in time. They cannot move if you look at them, so all you have to do is just.. not … blink. ever. As the mystery unfolds Sally communicates with the Doctor across the decades to help defeat the angels and return his TARDIS.

Back from an exciting weekend at Intervention 6 Jennie and Ben didn’t even have time to unpack before they were off to the Kempsville Area Library in Virginia Beach to record a live show as part of the library’s “Evening of the Doctor” program. As always the crew had a great time visiting with their library friends.
One of the events during the Evening was a vote for your favorite companion. The results were rather interesting:
Sarah Jane Smith
There were some interesting responses added, such as: Handles, K9, and “Not Clara”.
This week Jennie and Ben discuss the third season episode “42” which coincidentally is the 42nd episode of the Playing Doctor Podcast. The Doctor and Martha land on a spaceship that’s about to crash into a sun in– wait for it — forty-two minutes. A mysterious “infection” threatens to kill the crew before they have a chance to crash and burn in the sun. Their only hope is to know their Beatles trivia and avoid escape pods.
Special thanks go out to Librarian Denise Walker and Crystal Parker for inviting us to the show and once again putting up with our antics. We really enjoyed ourselves and were honored to once again be asked to participate in the evening’s events.
This gif works amazingly well with our theme song.
Joined by our friends Ben Taylor and CW Cobalt before a live audience at Intervention, we go back to 1982 and discuss the upperclass English adventure story in “Black Orchid.” The Doctor arrives in the early 20th century countryside for some cricket, a spot of tea… AND MURDER. Several cases of mistaken identity leads to the typical wacky hijinks of a Davison episode. As the Doctor and pals try to unravel the mysteries in the strange house, we try to keep CW from thinking about the Charleston and avoid scathing burns from Future Ben’s wit.
While The Doctor is dropping off Martha after their “one” trip in the TARDIS a story on the news catches his eye and soon they’re off on another adventure. The brilliant Dr. Richard Lazarus has figured out how to reverse the aging process. Meanwhile the effects of Dr. Lazarus’ experiment have started to show as he becomes the Scorpion King of Death. The Doctor defeats the Scorpion King by playing his organ to defeat the CGI monster once and for all. In the end Martha and the Doctor leave again for more adventures despite ominous warnings from Harold Saxon to Martha’s mom.
This week we are joined by Tommy V. and Lauren as we discuss series 3, episode 4, “Daleks in Manhattan”.
The Doctor and Not-Rose land on November 1, 1930 (GREAT SCOTT!) to witness the construction of the Empire State building. They meet some friendly hobos and begin to uncover the mysterious disappearances in the otherwise perfect utopia known as Hooverville.
Meanwhile, four Daleks known as the Cult of Skaro have taken over the construction of the Empire State building with a Frankendalek genetic lab. Using their creepy pigmen slaves to kidnap more humans, the Daleks plan on harnessing gamma radiation from a solar flare to create a master race of Dalek-human hybrids.
As usual, the Doctor and his Companions risk life, limb and snout to thwart the evil plans. The Doctor’s compassion allows Dalek KHAAAAAAN to survive in the end, undoubtedly to return again soon.
Our good friend Dennis Black-N-Asian returns to talk about the series 3 episode, Gridlock. the Doctor and his rebound companion, Martha, take a trip to New Earth. As a reflection of his relationship with her as compared to Rose, he ends up going to grim, post-apocalyptic version of NNY’s history instead of the idyllic apple grass scented futuristic paradise. Much like modern day Earth, they get stuck in a traffic jam and that’s where their adventures begin.
