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.

    As widely reported, Steven Moffat announced at the MediaGuardian Edinburgh TV Festival 2010 that rather than a single 13-episode series of Doctor Who in 2011, we'll get two shorter series in the spring and fall. Related pros, cons, speculation and unreasonable demands lie within!

    Last April revealed some major challenges for the Hurricane Who convention, with some guests reporting that they had not yet been compensated for their October appearance and were unable to contact convention head Jarrod Cooper. (I reported on these events, which were first made public on the Gallifrey Base forum, in 2MTL #125.)

    Direct Podcast Download

    Big Finish's next subscriber exclusive is a doozy: "The Four Doctors." Not just for the multi-Doctor goodness, but also because it is planned to be PERMANENTLY exclusive to subscribers. Is this a good idea?

    Concluding our countdown from 2MTL #149, we look at the more substantial, more meaningful story moments that involved the Doctor getting a little closer to the people he encountered — with a guest appearance from someone whose shoes fit particularly well.

    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 3 minutes and 25 seconds

    We don't know that EVERY classic incarnation of The Doctor was averse to being physical with his companions, but we've seen that ever since Survival went off the air he's become a LOT more touchy-feely while the cameras are rolling. Herewith, ranked on the bases of consistent characterization, plot advancement, dramatic effect and significance to the Doctor Who story, is part one of our rundown of the Doctor's osculatory adventures.



  • 2MTL 148: Plan B for Watching Doctor Who Internationally

    2 July 2010 (1:23am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 3 minutes and 25 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    For about as long as I've been podcasting, I've been on the warpath seeking the international release of Doctor Who episodes as close to the BBC One airdate as possible. I'm forced to admit that may not be practical most of the time for smaller networks such as BBC America.

    So here's my Modest Proposal for Plan B: more-expensive premium downloads of the episodes as soon as they've aired on BBC One, before they hit the international networks. Give a listen for the details, and let me know what you think.

    While the U.K. suffers the beginning of the Long Night Without Doctor Who, the U.S. and Canada have only gotten around to "Vincent and the Doctor," very much an outlier among the whole of Series 5. Thoughts about character development, starry nights and Fandom Wars (TM) within!

    24 June 2010 (1:57am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 3 minutes and 11 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    I'm seeing a parallel between Babylon 5 and the current series of Doctor Who, in the driving, defining nature of the story arc being carried through the thirteen episodes. Is this a good thing?

    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 2 minutes and 49 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    "Amy's Choice" was a powerful piece of storytelling, offering a fundamental insight into the Doctor's character, and a significant turning point for Amy. The character development was welcome after a first half of the series that seemed overly efficient in its characterization.

    In 2MTL 136 we noted this new Doctor's increased alienness and, more importantly, his decreased ability to relate to the people around him. In today's podcast, we look within the fiction for a reason why.

    Memorize this Twitter hashtag: #pulsebbc3. 'Cos like Being Human before it, Paul Cornell's new pilot project — the science fiction/medical horror show Pulse (Facebook link) — has a chance to be picked up as a full series if the online reaction is strong enough. Paul talks with me about the show he scripted, and also takes me up on my invitation to gush about Doctor Who Series 5 for a bit.

    (Time Dilation episodes of 2MTL put aside the two-minute format temporarily for longer interviews and such. And now you know…the rest of the story.)

    Could "The Time of Angels" live up to the relentless fan adulation, or was I doomed to disappointment because my expectations were just too inflated? Well…at least there was one big development in the Doctor's character that made the episode worthwhile.

    An easy answer to the success of Doctor Who is that it's not limited by genre — and no doubt that's a big part. But even more important is the mystery of the elevenfold man, the Doctor himself. How does that help hold longtime fans who must inevitably say goodbye to "their" Doctor?
