Two-minute Time Lord is a commentary podcast about the BBC\'s popular family science fiction program, Doctor Who, and its spinoffs. 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 fortysomething 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 Fifth Doctor Peter Davison first picked up a cricket bat.
And we\'ll keep it to two minutes (roughly), because we\'re ALL in a hurry. Except when we have interviews.
2MTL 463: 2MTL 463: The Power of Blinking Without Blinking (“Village of the Angels”)
Recapture the essense of the Weeping Angels from "Blink"? Chibnall and Alderton understood the assignment.
2MTL 462: Atropositive ("Once, Upon Time")
Space opera? Narrative connections and context emerging? Yes, please: this is the episode that gave me faith in Chris Chibnall's arc. (This episode dedicated to the memory of NPR Books editor Petra Mayer.)
2MTL 461: Sontar…huh. ("War of the Sontarans")
In which the laudable advancement of the Doctor Who: Flux story and the "rehabilitation" of the Sontarans as villains bumps straight into how I feel about war movies.
2MTL 460: The Opposite of Episodic ("The Halloween Apocalypse")
Now this is a story all about how. My life got flipped turned upside down.
Big, bold, and entirely un-self-contained, Doctor Who: Flux's first chapter may not have been the most welcoming to new viewers but is a very proper lead-off to the show's first modern miniseries.
2MTL 459: Nicole Hill on Russell T Davies's Return
Nicole Hill of @BlackTARDIS and @blkgirlscreate stops by for a conversation about their hopes and cautions for the new/old showrunner.
2MTL 458: Pregenerating a Showrunner
No one saw that coming. Russell T Davies's first era of Doctor Who is my favorite. What are some of the traps to avoid with his upcoming return as showrunner?
This podcast is Great!
Chip, you are a treasure. You have some awesome insights that that I have never thought of. Just a quick note, I am an 11 Doctor girl, but I adore 10 as well, and I know you get grief for liking the End Of Time, but I love most of it. The Master is a little OTP, but other than that, there are some lovely and funny moments that shine through. Quotes like, “I think you look like giants”, and “Worst rescue ever” come to mind. I don’t care if there’s potions or whatever. I like to be entertained, and it certainly does that. Love the farewell tour, and like you said it’s so 10th Doctor. The only time I rolled my eyes was the long trek through the snow, lol. But back to the podcast. I’m enjoying your back catalogue and hope you continue to put out some new ones, whenever you get a chance. They’re wonderful!
Chip! Come back Chip!
2MTL hiatuses are best treated as somethings in the past. A yearning Doctor Who Nation needs you, Chip!
love it, great show
