Flying through the entirety of Doctor Who. Originally with cake, but now with guests
Something Really Different on Screen
This week, Nathan and Peter find themselves trapped in the corridors of a grimy English hotel with Si Hart and Conrad Westmaas, where the rooms are full of biting into a woollen jumper, turning up to your maths exam totally naked, and the fact that one day, you, your loved ones and everyone who has ever heard of you will be completely and irrevocably dead. The janitor seems pretty fit though. It’s The God Complex.
The Word Elegant
This week, Simon Moore joins us again for a quick jaunt to the planet Apalapucia, where we visit a medical facility so staggeringly baffling and inept that it’s even terrifying to an audience living in the English-speaking world. It’s going to be quite a while before we get to see a doctor — that’s why it’s called The Girl Who Waited.
Fix the Kippers
This week we’re joined by Corey McMahon for an hour of blinking and quivering under the bedclothes in the scariest bedroom in human history, before learning a Very Important Lesson about the power of a father’s love. (There’s a plot about dollies in there, but it doesn’t really go anywhere.) Hey-ho, it’s Night Terrors.
Tried and True Tropes
This week, perhaps inevitably, James and Nathan invite Simon Moore and Kevin Burnard to join them in 1930s Berlin for a gay Gypsy barmitzvah for the disabled. It’s fun, but we can’t help wondering if it’s in the best possible taste. But, what the hell, Let’s Kill Hitler.
Lesbian Spank Inferno
It’s the last episode of the first half of the season, and to celeberate, Nathan, James, Peter and Adam Richard have invited literally everyone they’ve ever met to join them at Demons’ Run for a bloodless victory swiftly followed by a painful death. Oh, and the baby shower has been cancelled. Which is just the sort of thing that happens when A Good Man Goes to War.
Generic Potato Person
This week, Nathan, Peter, Richard and Simon rise up against their more viscous oppressors, launching blistering attacks on their shot composition, plot conveniences and crimes against good taste. Because, in a very real sense, we are all The Almost People.
Fear of the Welsh planet
Thank god they’re finally back. And now FTE is doing the new series. In this episode they cover everything from the possibility that the new Dr Who could have been played by Claudius through to the Doctor’s relevance to Brexit, Trump and Todd’s dark adolescents fantasies. Love Classic FTE, but now it’s about a show that most viewers were alive when it was made. A tour de force (despite their unremitting Mickey abuse #mickeytoo)
The only podcast that...
A look at the entire run of Dr. Who and spinoffs from 1963 to the present. Full of helpful information, trivia and critical analysis, these guys quite often disagree but do so respectfully, and the jokes often have me chortling at inappropriate times (I listen to the podcast at work), and seeing the show with different eyes sometimes.
Its not at all tiresome
These guys are some of the most knowledgeable people in fandom, and its always a pleasure to hear them. Warning, Don't binge listen, or you'll end up catching up and waiting is painful! Im a little worried though, they're almost at series 22, and I love series 22...
