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!

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.

EP-21 Bubble Wrap of Death

Play

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.

It’s Christmas season and that means cookies, trees, presents and best of all, a Doctor Who Christmas special. This week we discuss the 2013 Christmas Special “The Time of the Doctor”.

Due to a mysterious truth field we can’t lie about how bad Clara is at cooking a turkey and how much of a b*tch Linda is when giving dating advice (or talking in general). Gran is ready for a game of naked twister with the strange Swedish doctor she meets and Dave is on about pigeons again. Sounds about like an average Christmas dinner.

We are all sad to see Matt Smith depart and we’re excited for the new season to start. Let’s all checkout Christmas in July and enjoy our five minutes in the sun on this week’s Playing Doctor SPOILERS episode.

Warning, there be SPOILERS ahead.

EP-20 Non-Sexual Doctor

Play

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.

Ep-15 Wrap That Rascal Up

Play

Classic Doctor Who ran from 1963 until its cancellation in 1989. Much like its central character, The Doctor, the series itself regenerated in 2005 with a new look and all new adventures. For the past few weeks we’ve discussed the first season of the revived Doctor Who series and we are bringing together some of our previous guests to discuss the season as a whole. Joining us this week are former guests Ben Rollman, Grace Hebert, Dennis Black-and-Asian, Drew Stewart and The LadyFox.

When you’re dealing with something as big as Doctor Who, sometimes you want to jump right in and keep driving forward as fast as you can but occasionally it’s nice to slow down and look back when you Wrap That Rascal Up.

Ep-014 Time Vortex Make Out Session

Play

The LadyFox returns for episode 13, the season finale of Series 1: “The Parting of the Ways.”

The new and improved Daleks are back and have taken over the Earth via mind-numbing reality television programming (explaining the Honey Boo-Boo show). The Doctor and his companions have only 22 minutes to figure out how to foil the Dalek plan before the enemy attacks Satellite 5. Rose is tricked into returning to her own time, but she is determined to make a stand with her friends.

All bets are off and people start to die as the Daleks make their way to the top, you may not want to hide on the lower levels this week as Rose and the Doctor have a Time Vortex Make Out Session.

Ep-013 Who’s Afraid of the Bad Wolf

Play

Series 1 of Doctor Who is almost finished and this week we get our good friend The LadyFox to help us discuss episode 12, “Bad Wolf.”

The future was promised to be great and bountiful but instead the world has been plunged in to Reality TV hell. Game shows rule the airwaves and if you’re unfortunate enough to be chosen as a contestant you better play to win, because only the winners get to live!

The Doctor, Rose and Captain Jack wake up in the middle of various game shows and have to get their bearings fast because there’s huffing and puffing outside and it sounds like they’re living in a house of straw. It might be time to panic as we find out Who’s Afraid of the Bad Wolf!
