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.

  • 2MTL 207: Your Neil Gaiman Preparedness Kit, Plus Spoilergate (Time Dilation)

    12 May 2011 (2:42am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 minutes and 0 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Fandom is so atomized: Take any two wildly popular genre figures such as "Doctor Who" and "Neil Gaiman" and you'll find many fans of one nearly unaware of the other. In this Time Dilation edition of 2MTL, Chicks Dig Time Lords co-editor Tara O'Shea and I take a walk down the the shelves full of Gaiman's prose, comics and screen work to provide a little explanation of why those of us in the middle of the Venn diagram are so excited.

    But first: a traditional two-minute segment, as I tackle "Spoilergate."



  • 2MTL 206: "The Curse of the Black Spot" First Impressions

    8 May 2011 (2:03am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 2 minutes and 59 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Oh, look. It's a straightforward pirate romp like I asked for. "Be careful what you wish for, Mister Two-minute Time LAAAAARRRRRRD." (Thanks for the intro, Jim!)



  • 2MTL 205: "Day of the Moon" Second Impressions

    1 May 2011 (3:56pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 2 minutes and 58 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    We may have made the leap from "Doctor Who for TV," to "Doctor Who for the box set," finally to "Doctor Who expressly for time-shifting." Because, MAN, was this hard to watch in my living room…



  • 2MTL 204: American TV, Doctor Who, and Television Zombies (Time Dilation)

    28 April 2011 (3:38pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 40 minutes and 42 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Jeff, Chris and Chuck of the popular cult TV podcast Television Zombies show up on my show, after a couple of years of having me on as a DW geek on call, to talk about how Doctor Who's going over in the States. What happens when three guys who're into more genre TV than Doctor Who encounter a monofocused host? Find out as I get their predictions for Saturday's "Day of the Moon."



  • 2MTL 203: In Defense of BBC America

    26 April 2011 (11:07am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 3 minutes and 57 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Some U.S. fans accustomed to waiting for iTunes or using "other means" to get their Who Fix (TM) found it hard to deal with commercials, promos and additions to the day-and-date broadcast of "The Impossible Astronaut" on BBC America. Patience, folks: not only are those changes unavoidable in the TV biz, but they're ultimately a good thing even for Doctor Who in the U.K.!

    (Record ratings in the U.S. and Canada! Solid A.I.!)



  • 2MTL 202: "The Impossible Astronaut" First Impressions

    24 April 2011 (2:59am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 3 minutes and 34 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Best series opener yet? Debatable, but "The Impossible Astronaut" definitely benefited from, for the first time since 2005, not having to establish a new status quo (which even "New Earth" had to do given Tennant's comparatively brief screen time in "The Christmas Invasion," but I digress…).

    Where was I? Oh, yes — a series opener that, freed from having to Explain New Things, leaped straight into a story of heft and dread that will surely catch the attention of new viewers. Tick boxes were checked, and checked well — although there is ONE thing I'm disappointed about…



  • 2MTL 201: Farewell, Elisabeth Sladen

    19 April 2011 (9:31pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 2 minutes and 27 seconds

  • 2MTL 200: The Unbearable Brightness of Series 6, Plus Your Questions

    13 April 2011 (3:09am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 5 minutes and 24 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Less than two weeks away, a confession: I've been overwhelmed not only by the mammoth wall of hype over the debut of Series 6, but by some of the implications of the new season itself.

    Plus, listener feedback! Plus, simultaneously, an illustration of how listener feedback can go horribly wrong! (Bad influence: Ask a Ninja.)



  • Two-minute Technomage for April 1, 1996: "Severed Dreams"

    1 April 2011 (3:51am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 4 minutes and 27 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    We waited almost two months for PTEN to release the tenth episode of season 3, "Severed Dreams," and it was worth it! Tune in to hear my reactions to the landmark, gotta-win-an-award, science fiction classic of April 1, 1996. Babylon 5 has never been better!



  • 2MTL 199: Taking Skirts and Skits Seriously

    • Two funny and cute skits during Comic Relief.

    Part One: "Space"

  • 2MTL 198: Enchanted Believers and Mourning Ianto Jones

    23 March 2011 (4:42am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 23 minutes and 30 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Were you so saddened by the death of Ianto Jones in 2009's Torchwood: Children of Earth that it almost felt like you'd lost someone close to you?

    Or did you see the online reaction and hear about his Memorial Wall in Cardiff and wonder, "Where the HECK is this coming from?"

    Racheline Maltese, scholar and fan, wondered the same things about how people relate to stories in her paper, "Tangible Reality of Absence: Fan Communities and Mourning Fictional Characters," presented last July and now available online. I invited Racheline to talk about what it means to be an "enchanted believer" who reacts to a story as strongly as if it were a real-world event, and why Ianto was mourned by fandom but Owen and Tosh weren't.



  • 2MTL 197: Where'd the Human Heroes Go?

    18 March 2011 (4:20am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 3 minutes and 34 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    As a parting shot in 2MTL 196, I mentioned that I thought the message of the first four seasons of new Doctor Who, Torchwood and the Sarah Jane Adventures was that "it's the actions of everyday humans like you and me that make the difference in overcoming adversity." Some of you noticed that I left out Series 5. Herewith, the explanation.



  • 2MTL 196: Looking for a Doctor in a Torchwood World

    7 March 2011 (5:53am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 3 minutes and 19 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    The term "Classic Doctor Who" came in for some criticism last week from Doctor Who personalities such as current and former editors of Doctor Who Magazine. Is it so wrong to draw a distinction between 1963-1989-plus-1996 and 2005-2011?



  • 2MTL 194: "Dalek" Two-minute Throwback

    We're in full-on Time Dilation mode, all right, as I catch up on some of the reflections on last weekend's Gallifrey One 22 convention. Chicks Dig Time Lords co-editor Tara O'Shea and I talk about fandom, feminism and the digital world the next generation of Doctor Who fans inhabits. Then, I spend some time with the longtime volunteer whom I helped excavate the convention's official TARDIS: actor, comedian and Gallifrey One auctioneer and master of ceremonies Tadao Tomomatsu.

    Regular two-minute podcasts will return soon!

  • 2MTL 190: "You Haven't Seen The Aztecs?!"

    13 February 2011 (2:15am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 3 minutes and 27 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    I was publicly shamed by Rob Shearman and Toby Hadoke in The Doctor Who Podcast #53 for not having seen "The Aztecs." This week, while recovering from the Plague, I made amends.

    It's a good 'un.



  • 2MTL 189: Hoping for a (Torchwood) Miracle

    6 February 2011 (10:26pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 3 minutes and 14 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    "Children of Earth" was undeniably brilliant, but it ran the Torchwood concept through a Cuisinart. Is there enough left for "Miracle Day" to feel like Torchwood, or something new entirely? And is that a good thing?



  • 2MTL 188: "World War Three" Two-minute Throwback

    30 January 2011 (4:33am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 4 minutes and 34 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Yes, "World War Three" is better than "Aliens of London." Which is somewhat like saying a stab wound is better than amputation. All the same, there's some important and valuable stuff in RTD's otherwise least-successful Doctor Who story.

    PLUS an announcement: there's a trivia throwdown coming at Gallifrey One between The Doctor Who Podcast and Staggering Stories. I'm moderating this cataclysmic struggle, so I need your trivia questions and answers. Send them to quiz@twominutetimelord.com by February 10!

    Recrimination! Rage! Retweeting! We're looking at the (non-)controversy over Doctor Who's losses at the National Television Awards yesterday, and the ritual assignations of blame.

    Everything's fine, folks. Really.

    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 2 minutes and 57 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    In the first issue of the newly-relaunched Doctor Who comic series from IDW, writer Tony Lee captures the Eleventh Doctor so meticulously you're tempted to credit Matt Smith for the acting job.

    (Tony was last seen in these parts reviewing The Pandorica Opens and talking about comics in 2MTL 143.)



  • 2MTL 185: "Aliens of London" Two-minute Throwback

    Direct Podcast Download

    Michael of the excellent Tin Dog Podcast frequently observes, when he reviews an old and not-much-missed story, that "it's actually not that bad!" Would that I could say the same of an episode that brought to 2005 some of the stereotypical criticisms leveled at the classic series: bad effects, bad monsters and bad pacing.

    Doctor Who is anti-American? That's not exactly what Oklahoma City University professor Mark DiPaolo said in his Journal of Popular Culture article, but his assertions about the show's politics made some interesting fodder for BBC Radio 4's Thinking Allowed. Does this family SF show have a political point of view worth exploring…?

    Resuming our trek through the revived series from the beginning, we take a look at the Victorian pseudo-historical featuring Charles Dickens, whose stories provided skeleton and muscle for the 2010 Christmas special.

    It was certainly a Christmasy Christmas special Steven Moffat provided us this year, although it DID bear a few resemblances to one from a few years ago. Here's my take on "A Christmas Carol." Many, many thanks to BBC America, Worldwide, and the mothership in Cardiff for bringing the show to the U.S. on the original trasmission date!



  • 2MTL 180: Trying to Be Cricket About Doctor Who's Changes

    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 3 minutes and 11 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Top Gear America's taking it on the chin, dare I say unfairly, from the purist fans of the original. And that helps me predict whether Doctor Who will follow in The Office's footsteps as another BBC property being remade for U.S. audiences.

    Rob Shearman and Toby Hadoke's new book is the first in a series that takes a deep look at every Doctor Who episode from 1963 through 2009, beginning with the Hartnell and Troughton years. If you have any curiosity about the classic series at all, no matter how many stories you've actually seen, you won't regret snapping up a copy. Here's why.

    (Many thanks to the Twitterfolk.)

    BONUS: My full-length interview with Rob and Toby is on The Doctor Who Podcast #53.

    Can a time traveler ever truly leave his companions and acquaintances behind? After all, the Doctor "is" friends with Winston Churchill even though Churchill's long dead! Thoughts about the mystical — except in the Doctor's own case — connections between all times and places lie within. (This one ran a little long; sorry!)



  • 2MTL 176: "The End of the World" Two-minute Throwback

    22 November 2010 (3:22am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 2 minutes and 52 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Resolved: "The End of the World" was the most important Series One episode to Doctor Who's breakout success in 2005. When you have a strong opening, the follow-up had better be a killer, and it was.

    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 3 minutes and 9 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    "Rose, I'm trying to resonate concrete." Sometimes, the Doctor is tinkering with something he can't take his attention from, which traps him in a revealing conversation. It's a scripting strategy that RTD and Steven Moffat have used since 2005, most recently in "Death of the Doctor," and it's worked to great effect in revealing what makes the Ninth, Tenth, and Eleventh Doctors tick.



  • 2MTL 172: Top Gear meets Doctor Who in "Max Warp"

    Right there at the intersection of the Venn diagram between the gearheads and the Whovians is Big Finish's Eighth Doctor Adventure, "Max Warp." Does this Top Gear parody spin out or catch fire?

    Beginning an occasional subset of 2MTL podcasts, in which I give a two-minute (more or less, time's a relative dimension and all that) review of Doctor Who episodes since 2005. We begin with "Rose," perhaps the only episode in which we got a fair look at the Ninth Doctor.

    Today kicks off a one-week series of Two-minute Time Lord Podcasts exploring the relationship of Doctor Who and the BBC, an institution with an increasingly cloudy future. While Doctor Who is in no immediate danger, BBC budgets continue to be cut and the license fee is under attack.

    What might it mean for the long-term future of Doctor Who? Would changes to the BBC affect its most popular drama?

    A few days after the U.S.'s Banned Books Week, I explore the ways censorship and free expression have been tackled within the range of Doctor Who video, audio and print, with the help of many suggestions from my friends on Twitter and Facebook. When censorship's come up in a Doctor Who story, how simplistic has it been?

    Next week: a special week of programming with some special guests taking different perspectives on a special topic. I think it'll be special. I hope you'll like it.

I talk about why I started 2MTL ("shiny, happy spite"), returning to Doctor Who fandom after falling away, and why Doctor Who is a better Star Trek than Star Trek ever was.

    A little while back, I noticed a flurry of activity in the ol' Twitter feed, campaigning for Paul McGann's return as the Eighth Doctor in the new series. If it could be done, should it? I think so, because there's one completely unique quality to the Eighth Doctor that Steven Moffat could exploit the heck out of. And that is….
