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.
Children have gone missing from a chilly London suburb and they’re not visiting the London Olympics. This week we are joined by Tommy V and Lauren to help us discuss the cold summer Olympics set in the crazy future year 2012.
In a rare editorial move, we’re lifting the curtain and letting you see a glimpse of In the Console room. Before the show starts (and even after the credits) you’ll get to hear a bit of the pre-show debauchery and see what it takes to get everyone on the same page and get the show started.
Most agree this isn’t the best episode of Doctor Who and at some point we may get a little distracted while talking about the episode. No worries because when Tommy V gives us the “Tom Baker Eyes” and Lauren starts inappropriate relations with Simba the only thing left for Jennie and Ben to do is put Fingers to Lips.
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!
It’s a normal day for the Doctor and Rose, which starts of course with at least 6 impossible things before breakfast then rounded out with being stranded on a planetoid in orbit around a black hole by mid-afternoon. We meet the Ood, a race of strangely faced creatures that remind us of (insert your answer here). Before long, the Doctor finds himself deeply entrenched in man’s timeless battle against evil: avoiding commitment with a clingy companion.
The Ood might be the perfect servants, but no matter how good they are at laundry, nothing can remove Satan’s Pit Stains.
It’s 1953 and as London prepares for Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation something sinister is afoot in Muswell Hill. Mysterious Men in Black are abducting blanket covered grandmas and something is fishy with the telly.
Sean Devereux joins Jennie and Ben to discuss “The Idiot’s Lantern” as The Doctor and Rose meet The Wire and have a Fifties Face Off!
** Please redownload this if you’re a subscriber. We accidentally reposted Episode 23…oops
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!
Mickey tags along with Rose and the Doctor on his first off-planet adventure. They find themselves on a spaceship 3000 years in the future, where time windows have been opened into 18th century France. Mysterious clockwork robots are stalking Reinette, also known as Madame De Pompadour.
Russell T Davies got the idea to write a love story for the Doctor while researching for the 3-part serial from 2005, “Casanova,” which also starred David Tennant. It is also (apparently) inspired by the novel, “The Time Traveller’s Wife”
The Doctor is reunited with his old companions, Sarah Jane Smith and tin dog K-9 in the investigation of an eerily successful school as we travel back in time to discuss season 2, episode 3 “School Reunion” with long time friend of the show Drew Stewart. In addition to the Krillitanes, the heroes also find themselves battling the green eyed monster of jealousy. Rose and Sarah Jane vie for the Doctor’s attention, while Mickey desperately tries to keep a foothold in his relationship with Rose.
Be sure to get your diabeetus medicine and eat all of your chips so you can figure out Sarah Jane and Rose won’t be torturing the midget or walking the Mickey with the Non-Sexual Doctor in this episode of Playing Doctor because it’s deadlock sealed by the bat people from space.
This week we are joined by the Lady Fox as we discuss the second episode of series two, “Tooth and Claw”.
There’s strange things afoot at Torchwood House and Her Majesty Queen Victoria is less than pleased. The Doctor and Rose visit Scotland and meet up with some Kung-Fu monks and a lupine wavelength haemovariform! Ahh-WOOOOO Lupine wavelength haemovariform of Scotland… Doesn’t have the same ring to it as Werewolf of London but it’s the thought that counts.
Whether you’re locked in a cellar or hiding in a mistletoe paneled library, unlike the Queen you might just be amused when the Xiaolin Skinheads attack!
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.
