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.
Are you a socially awkward fan of ELO? Do you enjoy basement potluck dinners? Have you ever watched Doctor Who and thought, ” There’s way too much Doctor and not nearly enough Man-on-Concrete love action? The we have the episode for you!
This week we’re Playing Doctor with our semi-regular guest and long-time friend of the show Dennis Black-n-Asian as we discuss “Love and Monsters”.
Lovable loser Elton, already obsessed with ELO, discovers the magic of the Doctor and his companion. He loves the Doctor so much that he is determined to get close to him in the only way he can–by sleeping with Jackie Tyler.
When a mysterious stranger joins the group, strange things start happening to LINDA. But the story has a happy ending, as Elton trips over a strange piece of tile and falls in love.
Sticks and stones may break Elton’s bones as he enters the bizarre world of the Tile F**ker!
TARDIS racer #42 sponsored in part by Cybus Industries.
When the TARDIS crash lands–again–the Doctor and crew find themselves in an alternate universe where Jackie and Pete Tyler are still together, Mickey really is Rickey, and of course, people travel in zeppelins. When they discover something fishy going on with the Cybus Industries brand Bluetoofs everyone’s wearing, they investigate with their new friends in the Mystery Machine.
You can’t always trust the A/S/L in this parallel universe because sometimes it’s a hot blonde, and sometimes it’s the Cybersexmans!
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:
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.
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!
Two weeks in a row? That’s right, we had so much fun with Ben Rollman and Grace Hebert we asked them to finish up the story arc and join us as we discuss Doctor Who Season 1, Episode 5 “World War Three.” Be sure to check out Ben Rollman’s great Robot Portraits. He does a great job turning your pictures into robot portraits. They’re seriously cool.
Farting aliens have managed to take over the British government and The Doctor, Rose and Harriet Jones (MP, Flydale North) are trapped in 10 Downing Street. Now it’s up to Mickey and his l33t haxor skilz to save the day before the missiles are unleashed starting World War Three.
