We're three guys and the occasional guest who love the classic Doctor Who series and try our best to love the new series too. Join us twice a month when we take you through five rounds rapid and get to the bottom of what's great, and not so great, about our favorite show.
Episode 74: Running Around Getting Killed and Not Getting Killed
After a long absence, Get Off My World returns with a special double-length Episode 74: Running Around Getting Killed and Not Getting Killed, wrapping up our survey of Jodie Whittaker’s second season! Join Ariel, Pat, Kelvin and Joshua as we discuss Tesla versus Edison, the English Romantics, Birdemic, the history of mental illness, the Ruth Doctor (not Doctor Ruth), and our conflicted feelings about the Master and Captain Jack. All this and Pat’s impromptu off-key performance of Yazoo’s “Only You”! We cover a lot of ground here, is what we’re saying.
Episode 73: Beethoven Playing Brahms
In Episode 73: Beethoven Playing Brahms, the guys talk about fans and showrunners, Charles Dickens, Columbo, Polka-Dot Man and various famous musicians, but mostly about the beginning of Jodie Whittaker’s second season: Spyfall parts 1 and 2, and Orphan 55.
As if that wasn’t enough, this episode was recorded live in January 2020 at CONsole Room, the Twin Cities’ premier Doctor Who convention, and so has exactly zero discussion of the coronavirus! Come join us in our simpler world!
Episode 72: Goofy Overlords
In Episode 72: Goofy Overlords, your socially-distanced hosts Zoom their way through a discussion of the First Doctor adventure The Ark; conclude their coverage of the Fifth Doctor’s Doctor Who Magazine comic strips with “Lunar Lagoon,” “4-Dimensional Vistas” and “The Moderator”; and wind up Big Finish’s Stockbridge trilogy with a discussion of the audio adventure Plague of the Daleks. Whew! All this, plus the usual amount of digressions and hobby horses, a greater-than-average number of pandemics, and an examination of the longstanding question: Is Pat the a**hole?
Episode 71: Ignore All Humans
We at Get Off My World are longtime experts at social distancing, and we recognize that in challenging times like this it’s important to give guidance and distraction to all our listeners. And so we are proud to present Episode 71: Ignore All Humans, in which we discuss the 1980s Fifth Doctor comic strip stories “Stars Fell on Stockbridge” and “The Stockbridge Horror,” the Stockbridge-set 2009 Big Finish audio The Eternal Summer, and, er, Timelash. We really do spend an awful lot of time on Timelash. This is our gift to you.
We hope that all our listeners are safe and well! And please remember: “Laugh hard. Run fast. Be kind.“
Episode 70: Not a Lot of Legit Neuroscience
Episode 70: Not a Lot of Legit Neuroscience is the start of an ambitious three-episode double-arc, as the guys begin discussions about Doctor Who Monthly’s 1980s Stockbridge comics and Big Finish’s “Stockbridge trilogy of audios from the 2000s! This episode we discuss “The Neutron Knights,” “The Tides of Time” and “Castle of Fear,” and if that wasn’t enough, we still find the time for The Brain of Morbius, some Dave Gibbons love and a bit of metaphysical music theory. All this, as well as Osbert Mudstealer, Maud the Withered and 30-50 feral hogs*!
*Hog numbers may be approximate.
Episode 69: It’s Okay for It to Just Happen Like That
We’re back! After a long absence, Get Off My World! is back with Episode 69: It’s Okay for It to Just Happen Like That. Pat and Kelvin are joined by Ariel Leaf and Joseph Scrimshaw in front of a live audience at Convergence 2019. We discuss the state of Doctor Who (real and imaginary), a multitude of Randomizers, British robots, nontoxic fandom and much more. Plus a whole season’s worth of improvised Doctor Who stories!
For the hardest of hardcore fans
Three men "of a certain age" discuss the wide scope and the minutiae of the classic British series, with a careful and self-reflective sprinkling of new Who. Enjoyable even when I can't follow every reference.
Really enjoying it
Not pretentious or gimmicky, but wonderfully entertaining and interesting commentary.
You can listen to it!
As a fan of the new series, who’s maybe a little…curious about the old series, this is a great appetite whetter for me. They are obviously geeks, but very well read ones, they know their Who better than anyone I know. Well, almost. Great points, good discussion and all around fun to listen to. Except that Josh guy. I don’t know what his deal is.
Even my girlfriend finds them enjoyable to listen to!
