    This week Jennie and Ben discuss “Before the Flood” episode 4 of the 9th season. We weren’t too happy about this one but what can you do.

    We discuss spoilers from the episode and lots of talk about bootstraps, like the doctor said, Google it. Apparently lots of folks did as there was a spike in Google trends for searches for “bootstrap” on Saturday night and Sunday.

    Editor’s Note: Ben is a bad person. Ben failed to check the audio equipment prior to recording and this week’s Spoilers! episode was recorded using the built-in mic on his laptop instead of the nice fancy podcasting microphone that Jennie and Ben were talking to during this episode. Ben is being punished as we speak.

    Another spoiler episode as Jennie and Ben discuss season 9, episode 3, “Under the Lake”. If you were expecting a discussion about the Little Mermaid song “Under the Sea” you will be disappointed.

    The season continues its trend of two part episodes with this Toby Whithouse thriller. We don’t want to give away too much in the description but there are GHOSTS and we don’t think they’re old man Jenkins in disguise this time Scooby-Doo fans.

A frantic Doctor tells Martha she is the key to their escape just before the Doctor wakes up in his PJs with Martha bringing him breakfast in bed. No, Martha's dreams haven't come true, the Doctor has disguised himself as a human school teacher at an all boys boarding school on Earth in 1913. Now they must remain in hiding from the Family of Blood or all will be lost. But when the Doctor's special watch gets stolen just when Martha needs her Doctor the most love is in the air between the human Doctor and the boarding school's Matronly nurse. In the end the Family of Blood learns what the true rage of a Time Lord feels like and the Doctor breaks the heart of another blonde, all the while ignoring Martha.

    Back from an exciting weekend at Intervention 6 Jennie and Ben didn’t even have time to unpack before they were off to the Kempsville Area Library in Virginia Beach to record a live show as part of the library’s “Evening of the Doctor” program. As always the crew had a great time visiting with their library friends.

    One of the events during the Evening was a vote for your favorite companion. The results were rather interesting:

  • Donna Noble
  • Ponds (both)
  • Sarah Jane Smith
  • There were some interesting responses added, such as: Handles, K9, and "Not Clara".

    This week Jennie and Ben discuss the third season episode “42” which coincidentally is the 42nd episode of the Playing Doctor Podcast. The Doctor and Martha land on a spaceship that’s about to crash into a sun in– wait for it — forty-two minutes. A mysterious “infection” threatens to kill the crew before they have a chance to crash and burn in the sun. Their only hope is to know their Beatles trivia and avoid escape pods.

    Special thanks go out to Librarian Denise Walker and Crystal Parker for inviting us to the show and once again putting up with our antics. We really enjoyed ourselves and were honored to once again be asked to participate in the evening's events.

    If you're in the area be sure to check out some of the other fun events at the Kempsville Area Library.

    Joined by our friends Ben Taylor and CW Cobalt before a live audience at Intervention, we go back to 1982 and discuss the upperclass English adventure story in “Black Orchid.” The Doctor arrives in the early 20th century countryside for some cricket, a spot of tea… AND MURDER. Several cases of mistaken identity leads to the typical wacky hijinks of a Davison episode. As the Doctor and pals try to unravel the mysteries in the strange house, we try to keep CW from thinking about the Charleston and avoid scathing burns from Future Ben’s wit.

    While The Doctor is dropping off Martha after their "one" trip in the TARDIS a story on the news catches his eye and soon they're off on another adventure. The brilliant Dr. Richard Lazarus has figured out how to reverse the aging process. Meanwhile the effects of Dr. Lazarus' experiment have started to show as he becomes the Scorpion King of Death. The Doctor defeats the Scorpion King by playing his organ to defeat the CGI monster once and for all.

    This week we are joined by Tommy V. and Lauren as we discuss series 3, episode 4, “Daleks in Manhattan”.

    The Doctor and Not-Rose land on November 1, 1930 (GREAT SCOTT!) to witness the construction of the Empire State building. They meet some friendly hobos and begin to uncover the mysterious disappearances in the otherwise perfect utopia known as Hooverville.

    Meanwhile, four Daleks known as the Cult of Skaro have taken over the construction of the Empire State building with a Frankendalek genetic lab. Using their creepy pigmen slaves to kidnap more humans, the Daleks plan on harnessing gamma radiation from a solar flare to create a master race of Dalek-human hybrids.

    As usual, the Doctor and his Companions risk life, limb and snout to thwart the evil plans. The Doctor's compassion allows Dalek KHAAAAAAN to survive in the end, undoubtedly to return again soon.

    Recently at (Re)Generation Who we had scheduled to record a podcast during our panel. While setting up for our recording we had the pleasure of meeting Nev Fountain who was finishing his panel and chatting with Proper Ben (Taylor) and FotS Craig Cobalt. We ended up having the opportunity to spend our panel time having a chat with Nev about his work with the Big Finish Audio Dramas, a lifetime of being a Doctor Who fan, and being a writer.

    Many of our listeners will recognize Nev as the author of the Mervyn Stone Mysteries, his work on the audio dramas and also as writer for the popular British comedy series Dead Ringers. We were honored to have the chance to speak with Nev and look forward to the release of his upcoming novel "Painkiller" due out in early 2016.

    MY HEAD IS ART

    At Regeneration Who last month we were joined by friends Ben Taylor and Chris Otto. This time we did a miniature version of our bracket challenge, to pick the Worst Doctor Who villain ever… welll… then it evolved slightly into “Which villain do we never want to see again?”

    For the purposes of condensing the selection into something reasonable, we decided to stick to recurring villains and leave out the one-hit wonder failures like the Abzorbaloff.

    Here’s the first round picks. You can click through to see the full bracket if you’re really impatient or want to follow along.

    Some spoilers included if you’re not caught up through the Matt Smith years, but we figure most of our fans have moved on by now…

    mccoyPDPJennie and Ben returned from (Re)Generation Who after three days of the best Doctor Who Convention EVER. After taking a few days to recover they sat down to recount their exciting weekend in Hunt Valley, MD. As you’ll hear in this episode, words escape them. There was just too much happening all weekend to fit into one show.

    Playing Doctor Podcast would like to take a moment to thank the creators of (Re)Generation Who, Oni and Harknell and the wonderful staff they gathered together to make such a terrific show. The entire weekend was filled with meeting old friends, making new friends and tears of joy.

    The guest list was phenomenal and we enjoyed meeting Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy, Tom Baker (via Skype), Nicola Bryant, Sophie (Aldred) Henderson, Andrew Cartmel, Terry Molloy, Deborah Watling, Patricia Quinn, Colin Spaull, Nev Fountain, and so many more that we feel bad for leaving anyone out. We were busy working our table and doing panels so we didn’t get to go to all of the unbelievable programming. We especially wanted to see Bree Geek’s Weeping Angel Robot but it was standing room only in that panel.

    We met a few other podcasters doing live shows and want to send a shout out to our Trek brethren at Trek Off Podcast. We recorded a few minutes with them by way of introduction and look forward to dropping by their show some time in the future.

    We let Future Ben (he says Proper Ben) out of Jennie’s basement to record with us. Ben Taylor is a big part of our con family and he keeps us in line. Whether he’s spreading the word about Playing Doctor Podcast or manning our table when Sleepy American Ben won’t wake up on time, we can always count on Proper Ben to do right by us.

    This year we introduced a new merchandise design by Jennie. You may have heard about the TARDIS Access badge or seen one if you were at the convention. We greatly underestimated the popularity of these badges and sold out on Friday. We will be contacting the folks who signed up for one soon and everyone else can catch up with us at Tidewater Comicon or Intervention to pick one up. Again, Future Ben was a big promoter of the TARDIS Access Badge and I think his wearing it around the con helped us to sell out.

    Be sure to keep an eye on this page, Facebook, Google+, and Twitter to find out all about our upcoming appearances. We love meeting listeners and making new friends.

    In this episode of Playing Doctor Podcast we travel to the Kempsville Area Library in Virginia Beach. We were pleased to be invited to participate in the Library’s Doctor Who night “Calling All Whovians” and we look forward to participating again in the future (or maybe even the past, because TARDIS). The night’s discussion was “Doctor Who: Fifty Years to Overnight Success”. We examined how that even though Doctor Who has been on the air and popular in Britain since 1963 and enjoyed niche success in the US during the 1970s and 80s, it wasn’t until 2010 and the arrival of Matt Smith as the Eleventh Doctor that Doctor Who exploded in popularity in the United States. While this isn’t a SPOILER episode we do discuss several topics across all five decades of Doctor Who so there may be a few minor spoilers.

    Special thanks go out to Librarian Denise Walker and Crystal Parker for inviting us to the show. We really enjoyed ourselves and were honored to be asked to participate in the evening’s events.

    This week Jennie & Ben are joined by long time listener Kirby Bartlett-Sloan from The 20mb Doctor Who Podcast to discuss “The Shakespeare Code”, Episode 2 of Series 3.

    After several months of having to wait until our episodes were posted before we could get Kirby’s Corrections(tm) for what we had said on the show we decided it would be quicker to get Kirby on the show so he could correct as we go! This episode was recorded before we started the summer convention season so Kirby has had plenty of time to get his notes together in preparation for this episodes corrections.

    Tonight we travel back to jolly old England and meet Billy Shakespeare. He’s your average Elizabethan man-about-town who happens to be a pretty decent playwright, but that may be the only decent thing about this tomcat. Things are amiss at the old (new) Globe Theatre when the Witches of Eastwick (or Eastenders?) show up with brooms at hand. You’re a wizard now, Harry but this quidditch match is for keeps. Doomfinger and Bloodtide are after the Golden Snitch and despite their awkward innuendo laced names they just may win and release the Carrionites into our world.

    Now the Doctor, the NotRose, and Billy Shakespeare are going to party like it’s 1599 because These Witches be Trippin

    This week we are once again live at Intervention in Bethesda and are joined by fan favorite Ben Taylor to discuss episode one of the third season "Smith and Jones."

    We get our introduction to Martha Jones and her chaotic family. Many fans will remember Martha lovingly as "Not Rose" even though one of the Ben's in the room thinks she's second only to Martha as Tennent's best Companion. We end up in hospital with a troop of space rhinos searching for a blood thirsty alien grandma.

    New Ben complains (justifiably) about breaking the No Romance on My TARDIS rule and Regular Ben drinks a few gin and tonics to get through the day. For the record this is the first episode of Playing Doctor recorded wholly in a bar but it probably won't be the last.

    After a magical kiss from the Doctor Martha may start to swoon in front of the Judoon Platoon upoon the Moon and need a tampoon.

Shit gets real when Mickey shows back up, the ghosts turn into Cybermen, and Daleks pop out of a giant Easter Egg. The Doctor hatches a plan to not only rid the planet of the invaders but also to ditch his clingy companion in another world.

    Children have gone missing from a chilly London suburb and they’re not visiting the London Olympics. This week we are joined by Tommy V and Lauren to help us discuss the cold summer Olympics set in the crazy future year 2012.

    In a rare editorial move, we’re lifting the curtain and letting you see a glimpse of In the Console room. Before the show starts (and even after the credits) you’ll get to hear a bit of the pre-show debauchery and see what it takes to get everyone on the same page and get the show started.

    Most agree this isn’t the best episode of Doctor Who and at some point we may get a little distracted while talking about the episode. No worries because when Tommy V gives us the “Tom Baker Eyes” and Lauren starts inappropriate relations with Simba the only thing left for Jennie and Ben to do is put Fingers to Lips.

    It’s a normal day for the Doctor and Rose, which starts of course with at least 6 impossible things before breakfast then rounded out with being stranded on a planetoid in orbit around a black hole by mid-afternoon. We meet the Ood, a race of strangely faced creatures that remind us of (insert your answer here). Before long, the Doctor finds himself deeply entrenched in man’s timeless battle against evil: avoiding commitment with a clingy companion.

    The Ood might be the perfect servants, but no matter how good they are at laundry, nothing can remove Satan’s Pit Stains.

    When the TARDIS crash lands–again–the Doctor and crew find themselves in an alternate universe where Jackie and Pete Tyler are still together, Mickey really is Rickey, and of course, people travel in zeppelins. When they discover something fishy going on with the Cybus Industries brand Bluetoofs everyone’s wearing, they investigate with their new friends in the Mystery Machine.

    You can’t always trust the A/S/L in this parallel universe because sometimes it’s a hot blonde, and sometimes it’s the Cybersexmans!

    This week we cross the time streams and travel back to the crazy disco era of 1975 and the second episode of the Tom Baker era. Join the Fourth Doctor, Sarah Jane Smith and Surgeon Lieutenant Harry Sullivan on their first trip in the TARDIS. With an unfortunate twist of the helmic regulator Harry (a.k.a. Proto-Starburns) sends the crew to the distant future beyond the 30th Century and into a world of cellophane wrap slug trails, green bubble wrap turds and giant space wasps from space.

    If you think the characters on British TV drama's are stodgy and uptight wait until you meet the crew of Nerva Beacon. Perhaps good ole Tom can warm their frozen hearts with his toothy smile and a jelly baby. Now if he could keep Harry from flirting with Sarah Jane we might all be able to save humanity from a fate worse than death. It's the Bubble Wrap of Death and it's going to keep this episode fresh.

    It's Christmas season and that means cookies, trees, presents and best of all, a Doctor Who Christmas special. This week we discuss the 2013 Christmas Special "The Time of the Doctor".

    Due to a mysterious truth field we can't lie about how bad Clara is at cooking a turkey and how much of a b*tch Linda is when giving dating advice (or talking in general). Gran is ready for a game of naked twister with the strange Swedish doctor she meets and Dave is on about pigeons again. Sounds about like an average Christmas dinner.

    We are all sad to see Matt Smith depart and we're excited for the new season to start. Let's all checkout Christmas in July and enjoy our five minutes in the sun on this week's Playing Doctor SPOILERS episode.

    Warning, there be SPOILERS ahead.

    The Doctor is reunited with his old companions, Sarah Jane Smith and tin dog K-9 in the investigation of an eerily successful school as we travel back in time to discuss season 2, episode 3 "School Reunion" with long time friend of the show Drew Stewart.

Rose and Sarah Jane vie for the Doctor's attention, while Mickey desperately tries to keep a foothold in his relationship with Rose.

    Be sure to get your diabeetus medicine and eat all of your chips so you can figure out Sarah Jane and Rose won't be torturing the midget or walking the Mickey with the Non-Sexual Doctor in this episode of Playing Doctor because it's deadlock sealed by the bat people from space.

The Doctor and Rose visit Scotland and meet up with some Kung-Fu monks and a lupine wavelength haemovariform! Ahh-WOOOOO Lupine wavelength haemovariform of Scotland… Doesn’t have the same ring to it as Werewolf of London but it’s the thought that counts.

    Your long wait is over and we’re back to regular updates.

    Jennie made me say that or she was going to poke my jiggery again. Either way, we recorded this discussion about Doctor Who season 2, episode 1: “New Earth” with our old pal Greg Harbin waaaaay back in October. So this is truly a time travel episode back to the long ago days of 2012. Obama was president, gas was cheaper and catwomen knew their place.

    The Doctor and Rose go on a date to the distant future and run into trouble with cats. Anytime you deal with cats there’s going to be trouble. That’s just how it is with cats, especially cats who dress like nuns and practice the time honored tradition of nursing. To make things even more interesting we get a visit from our old friend Cassandra and a hospital full of quasi-zombie clones from space.

    In this madcap adventure you’ll need to take the Doctor’s advice and never trust Nurses, Nuns or Cats.
