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.
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.
This week Jennie & Ben are joined by long time listener Kirby Bartlett-Sloan from The 20mb Doctor Who Podcast to discuss “The Shakespeare Code”, Episode 2 of Series 3.
After several months of having to wait until our episodes were posted before we could get Kirby’s Corrections™ for what we had said on the show we decided it would be quicker to get Kirby on the show so he could correct as we go! This episode was recorded before we started the summer convention season so Kirby has had plenty of time to get his notes together in preparation for this episodes corrections.
Tonight we travel back to jolly old England and meet Billy Shakespeare. He’s your average Elizabethan man-about-town who happens to be a pretty decent playwright, but that may be the only decent thing about this tomcat. Things are amiss at the old (new) Globe Theatre when the Witches of Eastwick (or Eastenders?) show up with brooms at hand. You’re a wizard now, Harry but this quidditch match is for keeps. Doomfinger and Bloodtide are after the Golden Snitch and despite their awkward innuendo laced names they just may win and release the Carrionites into our world.
Now the Doctor, the NotRose, and Billy Shakespeare are going to party like it’s 1599 because These Witches be Trippin
This week we are once again live at Intervention in Bethesda and are joined by fan favorite Ben Taylor to discuss episode one of the third season “Smith and Jones.”
We get our introduction to Martha Jones and her chaotic family. Many fans will remember Martha lovingly as “Not Rose” even though one of the Ben’s in the room thinks she’s second only to Martha as Tennent’s best Companion. We end up in hospital with a troop of space rhinos searching for a blood thirsty alien grandma.
New Ben complains (justifiably) about breaking the No Romance on My TARDIS rule and Regular Ben drinks a few gin and tonics to get through the day. For the record this is the first episode of Playing Doctor recorded wholly in a bar but it probably won’t be the last.
After a magical kiss from the Doctor Martha may start to swoon in front of the Judoon Platoon upoon the Moon and need a tampoon.
