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 470: Something Old, Something New
Is RTD2 a nostalgia trip? Some thoughts on last week's announcement of Ncuti Gatwa, today's announcement of Catherine Tate and David Tennant, and the merits of old mistakes vs. new mistakes.
2MTL 469: TIME DILATION: The Streaming Future of Doctor Who
Jason Snell, co-host of Downstream on Relay FM and head of The Incomparable network of pop culture podcasts, joins me for a look at Doctor Who's future in a world where TV networks struggle to stay relevant and Netflix is losing a bunch of subscribers. The conversation is a "follow-out" from recent discussions on Radio Free Skaro. (Apologies to Jason because I overprocessed his audio.)
2MTL 468: "Legend of the Sea Devils" and Feeling Closer to "Fine"
When you're the sort of person for whom the meaning of "fine" turns from "good enough" to not so much, and maybe you start surrendering to pessimism, even after an honestly revolutionary conversation between Yaz and the Doctor.
2MTL 467: Parsing Age, Rose/Ten and Thasmin
The most tortured podcast episode title I've ever created, plus my Thasmin wishlist for "Legend of the Sea Devils."
2MTL 466: New Year's Hangover
Thoughts from the heart about a New Year's special that was a small story, coming at a time when I was struggling to come to terms with the last two years–and how I hope to look at Doctor Who anew following a return to Gallifrey One.
2MTL 465: Re: Flux ("The Vanquishers")
Sometimes the best TARDISes are crowded
I'm not entirely sure who "The Vanquishers" applies to, TBH. Anyhoo, I took a little extra time to think about Chapter 6, and Flux as a whole, and why I ultimately think this effort to put eight pounds of plot into a six-pound bag succeeded despite itself.
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
