Two-minute Time Lord
Description:
Two-minute Time Lord is a commentary podcast about the BBC ' s popular family science fiction program, Doctor Who. We ' ll try to keep this context in mind as we review episodes, comment on the news of the moment, and otherwise pontificate: Doctor Who is not FOR a thirtysomething podcaster. It ' s for that nine-year-old behind the sofa. But his or her mum and dad have been invited along for the ride, as are those of us who were kids when Peter Davison first picked up a cricket bat. And we ' ll keep it to two minutes, because we ' re ALL in a hurry.

    OK, so Chip has a new podcast that he's spending more time on, and yet he can't wait until next Tuesday to respond to this Guardian column: "How Can Smug, Stale Doctor Who Get Back to its Glory Days?" Here we go…



  • Announcing "This Week in Time Travel"

    I'm super excited to get to talk about Doctor Who with other people on a regular basis, but I'm not planning to abandon 2MTL entirely. Whenever there's a short essay on This Week in Time Travel, we'll share it right here as well.

    Our first episodes will include interviews with good folks like Titan Comics Twelfth Doctor artist Rachael Stott, Doctor Who alum and Chalk author Paul Cornell, and Kim Rogers and Sage Young of the influential Head Over Feels. Join us, won't you? We're at thisweekintimetravel.com or you can find us at The Incomparable. Follow us on Twitter at @drwhothisweek and visit our Facebook page.

  • 2MTL 421: Celebrating Capaldi (Time Dilation)

    1 February 2017 (6:25am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 26 minutes and 18 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Yeah, this is worth breaking a hiatus again.

    We've had just two years with him, and then a whole Wilderness Year without him (save an appearance on Class), and now we've found out that Series 10 and the following Christmas special will mark the end of Peter Capaldi's too-short run. Alyssa "@WhovianFeminism" Franke and I celebrate his time on the show, speculate on his final series, and prognosticate about what may follow.



  • 2MTL 420: No Capes?

    27 December 2016 (4:12am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 5 minutes and 8 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    2MTL pops up its head like a prairie dog to weigh in on "The Return of Doctor Mysterio" and the end of the Wilderness Year, then retreats back into its burrow. But watch this space for news of a potential new podcasting project…



  • 2MTL 419: So Long, and Thanks for All The Fish

    30 June 2016 (1:00pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 5 minutes and 5 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    2MTL may or may not return with the new season of Doctor Who, but I couldn't say goodbye without tipping my hat to the community of fans and podcasters that gave my life meaning during rough times and encouraged my creativity. What better way to do that, than by rerunning The Ood Cast's classic every-podcaster-and-the-kitchen-sink parody from Series 6, "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life"?

    Look for me on The Audio Guide to Babylon 5, occasional panels on The Incomparable Network, and…who knows? Who…nose…?



  • 2MTL 418: Throwback Review of "The Impossible Planet"

    29 June 2016 (5:02am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 4 minutes and 1 second

    Direct Podcast Download

    One last Throwback Review before 2MTL falls into a black hole: "The Impossible Planet" is great for exactly the reason I missed.

    (NOTE: The ending of the podcast is an intentional nod…)



  • 2MTL 417: Throwback Review of "The Idiot's Lantern"

    19 June 2016 (3:52am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 4 minutes and 53 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    It's been a while since we did a Throwback Review, so let's look back at Mark Gatiss's second episode of New Who, which feel surprisingly like a mashup of the classic series and 1966's Batman TV show.



  • 2MTL 416: Let Clara Kiss Jane

    3 June 2016 (2:16am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 7 minutes and 56 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Alyssa, author of the Whovian Feminism blog (whovianfeminism.tumblr.com), wrote an essay called "A Love Letter to My Problematic Favs." In it, she said:

    I try to let myself love my favorite characters as much as I can, even when they can sometimes make me so uncomfortable I can't bear to watch them onscreen. I try to defend them against criticism I think is unfair (after all, female characters come in for a disproportionate amount of sexist criticism), while at the same time trying to keep my mind open to new critical perspectives.

    Maintaining a healthy perspective is tough, and we don't always strike the right balance. But ultimately, that challenge can be a rewarding experience. In struggling to come to terms with all the ways I love and have been let down by my problematic favs, I think I've become a better feminist and fangirl.

    Chip invited Alyssa to reflect a month later on what she wrote. As fate would have it, that turned out to be the same time that representation and fan entitlement became a hot topic.



  • 2MTL 415: Entitlement?

    1 June 2016 (3:45am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 5 minutes and 11 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Is it "entitlement" to advocate for change in the media you consume? Are you a bad fan, or even a bully, if you want to see something different in Doctor Who? Maybe there's a difference between having an opinion on the internet and being a threat. Maybe we can do something about the latter without trying to shame the former.



  • 2MTL 414: Regeneration

    28 May 2016 (8:08pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 2 minutes and 49 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Peoples of the Universe, please attend carefully.



  • 2MTL 413: Technophobia Phobia

    24 May 2016 (2:00am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 5 minutes and 41 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Let's get this right out of the way: Big Finish's "Technophobia" is a triumphant return for the Tenth Doctor and Donna Noble, almost as though Tennant and Tate never left.

    And that weirded me the heck out.



  • 2MTL 412: Signs and Portents

    8 May 2016 (3:33pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 4 minutes and 2 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    The news last week wasn't so much "news" as "tantalizing or terrifying hints of what might be in Doctor Who's future," including a possible writers room experiment and yet more machinations against the BBC itself.



  • 2MTL 411: Meeting Bill

    24 April 2016 (2:56am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 3 minutes and 25 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Pearl Mackie is the new companion, Bill, introduced during a really big football game. I like what I see–both in the companion, and in the way the BBC brought her to us.



  • 2MTL 410: Class NOT Dismissed

    7 April 2016 (10:54am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 3 minutes and 3 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    The BBC's press announcement of its Doctor Who spinoff Class's cast–and more crucially its concept and plot hints–draws Chip out of his hiatus…



  • 2MTL 409: Noel Clarke from Long Island Who (Time Dilation)

    Episode Duration: 47 minutes and 22 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    At long last, 2MTL's interview from the Long Island Who stage with Noel Clarke in November 2015. Noel talks about his career outside Doctor Who, including his comic The Troop from Titan Comics and his upcoming film Brotherhood, as well as his evolution from "buffoon" to "badass" as Mickey Smith.

    Episode Duration: 34 minutes and 18 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Recorded at Long Island Who in November 2015, here's Strax himself: Dan Starkey! Dan talks about his journey from murderous soldier in "The Sontaran Stratagem" to the medical hero we have come to know and love and fear.



  • 2MTL 407: Ace and Aro in Doctor Who

    27 January 2016 (3:12am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 3 minutes and 26 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Mikayla, one of the hosts of The Web of Queer (Twitter), provides a great guest commentary (clocking in at an increasingly rare ACTUAL TWO MINUTES) about what you may be inadvertently communicating when you discuss whether the Doctor is, or should be, asexual or aromatic.



  • 2MTL 406: Chibnall Promoted

    23 January 2016 (3:18am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 3 minutes and 39 seconds

    Today the news broke that Steven Moffat's next series will be his last, and that Chris Chibnall is waiting in the wings…



  • 2MTL 405: A Late Word About "The Husbands of River Song"

    9 January 2016 (11:20pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 4 minutes and 49 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    The Management would like to apologize for the delay in this review. There was a holiday thing.

    Speaking of holiday things, how about the last Christmas special?



  • 2MTL 404: Series 9 in Review (Part Two with The Writers' Room)

    7 January 2016 (12:10am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 1 hour, 35 minutes and 17 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Thanks to the holidays, this huge Time Dilation edition of the podcast was almost literally 404. Thanks so much to Kyle Anderson and Erik Stadnik of Doctor Who: The Writers' Room for joining me for an in-depth (believe me, once they get wound up about "Sleep No More"…) examination of Series 9.

    This podcast was recorded before "The Husbands of River Song" aired, about which more next time.



  • 2MTL 403: Series 9 in Review (Part One with Petra Mayer and Rachel Donner)

    16 December 2015 (3:29am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 40 minutes and 9 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Series 9 is over, and with it is Chip's fidelity to his podcast format: It's time for a series of longer Time Dilation episodes! First up, the first of two year-in-review episodes, this time with NPR's Petra Meyer and Hockey Feels co-host Rachel Donner.

    Episode Duration: 3 minutes and 55 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    After millions of years of chipping away at a diamond wall, getting zapped by a creature from nightmares, and crawling to a teleporter to restart the cycle, I've released a podcast about "Heaven Sent."



  • 2MTL 400: "Face the Raven" Reviewed

    22 November 2015 (2:59am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 5 minutes and 2 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    The 400th episode of 2MTL coincides with the swan song of one Clara Oswald (and Chip is blissfully unaware of spoilers or synopses for the next two episodes, so he's going to hold to that position for now). And as modern companion departures go, there's been no equal.

    Check out Chip on The Incomparable Network's TeeVee podcast episode 118 for a longer conversation about "Face the Raven" with host Jason Snell.



  • 2MTL 399: "Sleep No More" Reviewed

    19 November 2015 (2:19am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 4 minutes and 1 second

    Direct Podcast Download

    From Professor Rasmussen speaking to camera and the complete lack of opening titles to a barely present score and unusual "resolution" to the episode, "Sleep No More" broke all the rules of Doctor Who. Now I'm afraid it'll be harder to break them again.



  • 2MTL 398: "The Zygon Inversion" Reviewed

    12 November 2015 (5:02am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 3 minutes and 46 seconds

    The last man on Earth to watch "The Zygon Inversion" finally watches "The Zygon Inversion."



  • 2MTL 397: Throwing Shades

    7 November 2015 (5:01pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 4 minutes and 10 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Just over halfway through Series 9, some fans have come to terms with the Sonic Sunglasses, and some are totally over them. Steven Moffat wouldn't have it any other way.



  • 2MTL 396: "The Zygon Invasion" Reviewed

    1 November 2015 (2:28am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 4 minutes and 20 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Your host's earlier fears about Osgood's fate and portrayal have been for the moment assuaged, and, oh by the way, this episode rocked.



  • 2MTL 395: "The Woman Who Lived" Reviewed

    29 October 2015 (1:43am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 3 minutes and 37 seconds

  • 2MTL 394: "The Girl Who Died" Reviewed

    18 October 2015 (7:57pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 2 minutes and 27 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    For a change, I'm not reserving judgment on a story until its conclusion airs. I'm praising a story because it's not finished yet.



  • 2MTL 393: Ex-"Geek Girls"

    16 October 2015 (10:50am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 3 minutes and 34 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    I really enjoyed "Before the Flood"–except for one thing that seems to be coming dangerously close to a trend in Doctor Who. And in this episode, as the Radio Times revealed, it was no accident.



  • 2MTL 392: "Before the Flood" Reviewed

    11 October 2015 (2:00am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 3 minutes and 16 seconds

    Far beyond wishing everyone at home a Merry Christmas, Toby Whithouse's "Before the Flood" opens with the show's most Fourth Wall-breaking moment yet, revealing once again how subversive the Moffat Era really is.



  • 2MTL 391: "Under the Lake" Reviewed

    4 October 2015 (2:32am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 3 minutes and 33 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Archetype, trope or formula? As we return to the "base under siege" style of Doctor Who storytelling, does writer Toby Whithouse do something fresh with it? And is it time for a serious talk about Clara?



  • 2MTL 390: Reality Bomb Presents "Class Struggle"

    3 October 2015 (2:08am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 3 minutes and 40 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    The universes are collapsing: Reality Bomb has invaded 2MTL to explore just what happened when the BBC made its much-hyped-on-social-media announcement about the new Doctor Who spinoff, Class. Written by Graeme Burk; performed by Graeme Burk, Chip Sudderth, Bill Evenson and Kim Rogers; lovingly balanced and tweaked by Alex Kennard.

    Our Series 9 reviews begin with a confession, a pre-credits turnaround, a comparison to "The End of Time" (That'll enrage my friends at Radio Free Skaro!), and a bit of bet-hedging!



  • 2MTL 386: Doctor vs. Doctor

    12 September 2015 (4:20pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 3 minutes and 42 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    The Titan Comics summer Doctor Who event, Four Doctors, is not only a rousing adventure tale, but also an insightful look at what happens when the Doctor is forced to face…himself.

    OK, so that was a great second trailer for Series 9, with loads and loads of Daleks.

    Except for those guys introduced in "Victory of the Daleks."

    Alas, the New Paradigm.



  • 2MTL 382: Peak Doctor

    23 July 2015 (1:46am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 3 minutes and 18 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    It's been a couple weeks of highs (Doctor Who) and lows (politics) for the BBC. Last time I dwelled on the lows. Let's turn it around this time.



  • 2MTL 381: BBC Under Attack? Toby Hadoke Helps an American Understand (Time Dilation)

    16 July 2015 (4:38am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 20 minutes and 39 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Should the BBC give up on popular commercial programming like, oh, I don't know, Doctor Who? A "green paper" to be released today reportedly calls for reconsidering the British Broadcasting Corporation's purpose, while the government plans to force the BBC to dig deep into its own pockets to fund license fees for citizens over 75.

    Is this the darkest timeline? 2MTL gets a little uncharacteristically political as I talk with friend of the show Toby Hadoke about what's behind these moves and whether Strictly and Sherlock and our favorite television show might be at risk.

    (Also, check out Toby's play on BBC Radio Four, The Dad Who Fell to Earth.)



  • 2MTL 380: Throwback Review of "The Age of Steel"

    15 July 2015 (2:49am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 4 minutes and 17 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    The Doctor and companions were threatened with maximum deletion last time, which I suppose is worse than simple deletion. I bet the Doctor had a clever way out of this one that had absolutely no deus ex machina involved, right?

    Well, at least "The Age of Steel" is a cool name.



  • 2MTL 379: Throwback Review of "Rise of the Cybermen"

    2 July 2015 (4:34pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 3 minutes and 13 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    If you were a classic fan who was on Team Cyberman rather than Team Dalek, this episode was long overdue. But was "Rise of the Cybermen" a proper re-introduction of the classic villains? Or were there too many stompy missteps out of the gate?

    Direct Podcast Download

    Why would a man-child geek culture hound, who has immersed himself in your Star Treks and Star Wars and Jason of Star Commands as a child, dreaming of being those characters and living in those worlds, become obsessed to the point of podcasting about a character, the Doctor, whom he absolutely cannot imagine being?

    Asking for a friend.
