Doctor Who Grab Bag - An Eighth and Third Doctor Adventures
The couple spend this episode talking about two random serials in the Doctor Who franchise - the Big Finish Eighth Doctor adventure "Invaders from Mars" and the Third Doctor episode "Colony in Space." What do you think of these two quite different episodes?
In their look into the TARDIS library, Phillip reviews the First Doctor biography, "Who's There? The Life and Career of William Hartnell," penned by Hartnell's granddaughter.
The co-hosts continue their monthly Doctor-focused episodes, following Richard Carrier's YouTube analysis (Fifth Doctor era clip). Peter Davison and his TARDIS crew under the supervision of John Nathan-Turner ushered in a new era of "Doctor Who" for the 1980s. Was this the beginning of something new or the beginning of the end for the classic era?
In their look into the TARDIS library, the couple re-visit the Tenth Doctor adventure "The Doctor's Daughter," with guest star Georgia Moffett, a.k.a. Peter Davison's daughter (and David Tennant's future wife!)
The lost episodes of "Doctor Who" continue to frustrate fans. This year, an animated release attempted to "fill in" the canon with the restoration of the Second Doctor serial "The Macra Terror." How does the animation look? What is the story like? And why can't any of the characters properly describe the monsters? We look at that and more.
In our look into the TARDIS library, we review the second appearance of the Macra in the Tenth Doctor episode "Gridlock." This episode definitely made us have kittens.
Doctor Who Actors in the Marvel Cinematic Universe
"Avengers: Endgame" landed in cinemas across the world - and just as this epic movies celebrates the entire MCU franchise, it also celebrates the "Doctor Who" franchise. Jessica and Phillip talk about the actors who have appeared in both series - from Toby Jones, Karen Gillan, David Bradley, and David Tennant.
In their look into the TARDIS library, the couple look at the Harry Potter movie franchise for what "Who" actors have appeared there - specifically examining the fourth film, "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire."
Love is in the air as this podcast's co-hosts celebrate their second wedding anniversary - so why not talk about romance in the TARDIS? Jessica and Phillip look at Rose/Mickey, Rose/Ninth Doctor, Amy/Rory, and Clara/Danny -- did these pairings work? How did they evolve? And ... do we really think the Doctor has "sexy times"?
In their look into the TARDIS library, the couple revisit two Eighth Doctor Big Finish productions - "The Stones of Venice" and "Minuet in Hell."
Jon (7 July 1919 to 20 May 1996) played the Third Doctor during the 1970s, but he was more than a Time Lord. Jessica and Phillip talk about several documentaries they watched about Mr. Pertwee, his legacy as "Worzel Gummidge," and how his son Sean is continuing the acting tradition.
In their look into the TARDIS library, the couple review the Mark Gatiss-penned novel "The Vesuvius Club." Phillip describes how the lead character, Lucifer Box, is a mix between Sherlock Holmes and James Bond, and how this first story in the Box trilogy unfolds.
Jessica and Phillip are joined by Bayana and Connie of the TARBIS (Time and Relative Blackness in Space) podcast to examine companions of color. They tackle the Thirteenth Doctor's newest friends - Ryan and Yaz, and what their characters brought to the latest series. They also look at the Twelfth Doctor's companions - everyone's favorite Bill, and everyone's ... well, also Danny Pink.
In their look into the TARDIS library, the couple give an in-depth look at the Big Finish Production - The Diary of River Song, Series Three, featuring the Fifth Doctor.
Jessica and Phillip barely make it in time for the third installment of their monthly Doctor "in focus" series, based on the YouTube videos of Clever Dick Films. They discuss the Third Doctor era, with Jon Pertwee taking over the newly colourized Time Lord role, along with his UNIT gang and new assistants. From the introduction of The Master to a mirror universe, there is a lot to cover in this 1970s Doctor Who era.
In their look into the TARDIS library, the couple stumble upon the 1990s Liz Shaw spinoff "P.R.O.B.E." They review its direct-to-video episode, "The Zero Imperative," penned by Mark Gatiss and starring several Doctors.
The Fourth Doctor's last adventure "Logopolis" was released in movie theaters around the U.S. to promote the release of the Season Seven Blu-ray. Jessica and Phillip watched this feature presentation, along with included interview extras from Tom Baker, Janet Fielding, and Sarah Sutton. From the introductions of new companions (...for the Fifth Doctor...), the Master's re-appearance, and entropy, entropy, entropy!, there is a lot to unpack. And what the heck is the Watcher???
In their look into the TARDIS library, the couple revisit the Eighth Doctor Big Finish adventure, "Sword of Orion." How does the Doctor and Charlie fare against their first conflict with the Cybermen?
