  • Ep-15 Wrap That Rascal Up

    27 October 2012 (11:14pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 1 hour, 19 minutes and 1 second

    Direct Podcast Download

    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.

    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.

    Direct Podcast Download

    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!

    Discussed:
    Weakest Link Doctor Who Special

    Meanwhile, a strange love triangle– or is it a square?– is forming between Rose, Mickey, and her time travelling companions. Can they put their hormones on a shelf for long enough to once again save the Earth from destruction?

    I’m not always mayor of Cardiff, but when I am I use a Deus Equis Machine.

We last left them surrounded by a horde of zombies looking for their Mummy. When the Doctor orders the child to his room, all of them obey.

    They investigate the child's room in the hospital and experiment with "dancing" after a quick chase through the hospital, pursued by the zombies. When Nancy is captured by the military, her path once again crosses the Doctor, Rose and Jack.

    Jack saves the day in the end, by capturing the bomb that was set to destroy the ambulance. The Doctor and Rose in turn rescue him and prepare to take him on their next adventure. Your face red, your eyes wet. Doctor when his pants fell.

He meets a group of plucky young British orphans who scrounge to survive in the streets of the city during the air raids. Meanwhile, Rose is swept off her feet and rescued by a devilishly charming and handsome man named Captain Jack Harkness. Investigating the mystery of the creepy, gas mask-wearing Empty Child, the Doctor returns to Albion Hospital where dozens of zombie-like victims have somehow transformed to have gas masks for faces. Rose and Jack find the Doctor just as the zombies wake and begin to close in on them…

    There’s a war on and people are getting killed, we better call an Ambulance Chaser.

    We are joined by our good friend Darryl Lewis of FlyingMonkeyMotoGear.com as we discuss Doctor Who series 1, episode 8, “Father’s Day.” Darryl is the amazing talent behind our theme music and he writes a awesome blog about Motorcycles, Sci-Fi and Rock ‘n Roll, so check it out.

    This time, Rose's brilliant idea of the week is to go back and meet her father in his dying moments. Hilarity ensues when she saves his life instead, tearing a hole in the time space continuum. Giant bug-dinosaur-like creatures take advantage of the situation, terrorizing the town and all the British white trash within. It looks like the end for the Doctor when he becomes a crunchy snack for one of the Reapers, until Pete Tyler becomes the hero and sacrifices himself to set things right again.

    If you want to survive breaking the Universe be sure you have your TARDIS key handy and Don’t Fear the Reaper!

  • Ep-008 Dude, Where's my Shoes?

    30 August 2012 (3:18am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 1 hour, 8 minutes and 40 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    This week we'll be crossing the time streams and discussing the first episode of the 1970 seventh season of Classic Doctor Who "Spearhead from Space".

    The Doctor returns to Earth along with a swarm of plastic meteorites which carry inside of them energy to power the Nestene Consciousness. The Nestene is an entity which can animate plastic, and takes over a toy factory as part of a larger plan to infiltrate the world's governments with plastic replicas of their leaders. Meanwhile they've created an army of Autons to terrorize the public and take out its enemies.

    The Doctor works with new Companion Liz Shaw and returning Brigadier Alistair Lethbridge-Stewart to unravel the plot before it's too late. Since the Autons are not taken out by guns, the heroes develop a special weapon that emits a high frequency signal which breaks the link between the Autons and the Nestene Consciousness.

    There is a struggle between the Doctor and the Nestene Consciousness' tentacles after they discover their secret weapon doesn't affect it. Fortunately Liz re-calibrates it to a new frequency which DOES work, just in the nick of time.

    And in all of this chaos you’ll be as confused as the Doctor when he asks, “Dude, where’s my shoes?”

    This week Jennie and Ben discuss Doctor Who, Series 1, Episode 7, “The Long Game.” Due to tampering with the neutron flow of our TARDIS’ Inversion Matrix Overdrive Circuits we don’t have a guest this week so we’ll go it on our own.

    It’s the year 200,000 and The Doctor takes Rose and Adam to Station 5, where the news is created. Things are heating up on the lower levels while management is keeping cool upstairs. Is it love in an elevator? Is this the week Rose will decide to go “downstairs” on The Doctor? Does he need that as much as Adam needs another hole in his head?

    Probably not, but if you watch Doctor Who closely this week you might get a glimpse of a few naughty things including the ever sexy sight of Bo’s Balls.

    This week we are Playing Doctor with special guest Greg Harbin, co-host of “The Ready Room” on Trek.FM as we discuss Doctor Who Season 1, Episode 6, “Dalek” and we even find time for a barrel roll to make Greg feel at home.

    When you’re rich enough to own the Internet and have a 54 story basement you tend to accumulate a few odds and ends and that’s what The Doctor and Rose find when they meet Henry van Statten, the richest jerk on Earth in the “future” year 2012. Among his collection of odd alien artifacts are a Slitheen arm, a Cyberman head and one living specimen (if you didn’t guess what it is by reading the title, spoiler warning, it’s a Dalek).

    The Doctor bares his chest to van Statten and Rose makes a new friend but we all learn a valuable lesson, no matter what you do and not matter how much it begs you Don’t Pet a Dalek!
