Your long wait is over and we’re back to regular updates.
Jennie made me say that or she was going to poke my jiggery again. Either way, we recorded this discussion about Doctor Who season 2, episode 1: “New Earth” with our old pal Greg Harbin waaaaay back in October. So this is truly a time travel episode back to the long ago days of 2012. Obama was president, gas was cheaper and catwomen knew their place.
The Doctor and Rose go on a date to the distant future and run into trouble with cats. Anytime you deal with cats there’s going to be trouble. That’s just how it is with cats, especially cats who dress like nuns and practice the time honored tradition of nursing. To make things even more interesting we get a visit from our old friend Cassandra and a hospital full of quasi-zombie clones from space.
In this madcap adventure you’ll need to take the Doctor’s advice and never trust Nurses, Nuns or Cats.
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!
