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:

  1. Donna Noble
  2. Ponds (both)
  3. 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.

EP-34: Calling All Whovians: EVENT!

Play

In this episode of Playing Doctor Podcast we travel to the Kempsville Area Library in Virginia Beach. We were pleased to be invited to participate in the Library’s Doctor Who night “Calling All Whovians” and we look forward to participating again in the future (or maybe even the past, because TARDIS). The night’s discussion was “Doctor Who: Fifty Years to Overnight Success”. We examined how that even though Doctor Who has been on the air and popular in Britain since 1963 and enjoyed niche success in the US during the 1970s and 80s, it wasn’t until 2010 and the arrival of Matt Smith as the Eleventh Doctor that Doctor Who exploded in popularity in the United States. While this isn’t a SPOILER episode we do discuss several topics across all five decades of Doctor Who so there may be a few minor spoilers.

Special thanks go out to Librarian Denise Walker and Crystal Parker for inviting us to the show. We really enjoyed ourselves and were honored to be asked to participate in the evening’s events.
