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.

If you’re in the area be sure to check out some of the other fun events at the Kempsville Area Library.

Ep-40 I’m Old Now I’m Young!

Find us at Table 32 – August 14-16 at Intervention 2015

Bryan Lewis of legendary Norfolk bands The Gloom! and Humanoids From the Deep joins us to discuss the third series episode, “Lazarus.”

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.

Ep-39 Skaroface

Play

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.

Ep-32: Judoon Tampoons on the Moon

Play

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.

Thanks to Ben Taylor for returning as a guest! You can hear his other podcast at 3 Drinks, 2 Guys, 1 Topic and occasionally on Pop Culture Uncovered. Follow him on Twitter, too: @BobTGoldfish

Ep-30: Spider Babies

Play

Finally, the remaining episode from the Mike Federali sessions! He joins us to discuss Series 3’s Christmas episode, “The Runaway Bride,” where we meet Donna Noble on her wedding day. Her husband-to-be, Nerdy Black Renfield, has made a deal with a giant campy spider-empress to help bring her children forth from the center of the Earth.

Arachnophobes beware, if the Doctor can’t save the day, the entire planet will soon be overrun by a horde of Spider Babies!
