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
Spoiler Episode! Jennie and Ben are joined by Friend of the Show Ben Taylor to discuss the seventh episode of series 7, “Kill the Moon”. There may be some Clara hatred popping up but it’s all about choice in this episode. See if we choose life, space or rum in this episode of Playing Doctor SPOILERS!
In this new Playing Doctor Spoilers! Episode Jennie and Ben take a look at “Time Heist” and “The Caretaker”. Short episode but not much to say. We take calls from Peter NotCapaldi and FotS* Lauren and get their take on the episodes. Ben curses a lot in this episode because he’s binge watching The Thick of It.
Mike Federali, mastermind behind Tidewater Comicon, joined Jennie & Ben to talk about “The Runaway Bride.” However, everyone had so much fun and it went so far off-topic that we decided to split it up into two shows. Follow Tidewater Comicon on Facebook for all the hot news about TWCC guests and fundraising events.
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 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
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”
This week we cross the time streams and travel back to the crazy disco era of 1975 and the second episode of the Tom Baker era. Join the Fourth Doctor, Sarah Jane Smith and Surgeon Lieutenant Harry Sullivan on their first trip in the TARDIS. With an unfortunate twist of the helmic regulator Harry (a.k.a. Proto-Starburns) sends the crew to the distant future beyond the 30th Century and into a world of cellophane wrap slug trails, green bubble wrap turds and giant space wasps from space.
If you think the characters on British TV drama’s are stodgy and uptight wait until you meet the crew of Nerva Beacon. Perhaps good ole Tom can warm their frozen hearts with his toothy smile and a jelly baby. Now if he could keep Harry from flirting with Sarah Jane we might all be able to save humanity from a fate worse than death. It’s the Bubble Wrap of Death and it’s going to keep this episode fresh.
