2019

This is still true.

But I think, for once, the year ahead is looking good because things are finally clicking into place, rather than it looking good because I desperately need it to be.

2018 worked out okay. There were a lot of hard bits, but… finally, there felt like forward movement in a lot of different areas of my life. In our life.

Anyway. 2019 looks to be a wild one, even if half of the things Danica and I have planned work out.

Folks, you ain’t seen nothing yet.

Doctor Whooch // Episode 148 // Aerial Smack Mouth Resonance

In which we have NO idea what ASMR is, but we sure do have some guesses.

Welcome to 2019, jerks! Danica and Brandon are kicking the year off with their take on “Resolution”, the best Doctor Who episode of 2019. Spoiler alert: the villain is not humanity this time – humanity, empathy and love, are the cure. Also there’s stuff about families and relationships and being a person in there. It’s pretty good.

Always punch Nazis, thanks byeeeeee.


There’s more Doctor Whooch to enjoy! Here’s our most recent episodes.

Doctor Whooch // Episode 147 // I Don’t Think So, Tim.

In which we bid a fond farewell to the fam.

On this week’s show, Danica and Brandon watched “The Battle of Ranskoor Av Kolos” and they have some thoughts! Mostly about character development through the season, but partly on the show’s continuing efforts to confront ideas that are really tearing down society. Like organized religion! Yayyy!

Outro music is “TV” by Colleen Brown

Doctor Whooch // Episode 146 // Father of the Year

In which Norwegian Erik is a terrible father.

Seriously. Just the worst.

On this week’s show, Danica and Brandon discuss “It Takes You Away”, in which an idiot makes a lot of terrible life choices, and then has to be saved from destroying all of existence. Could you imagine? “Oh, how did the universe end. With the Time War? Some bullshit with the Daleks? Nah, it was Erik, who wanted a couple more dirty smooches.”

GTFO of here, Erik. You dummy.

Doctor Whooch // Episode 145 // A Witchery

Hi, there’s no metaphors in “witch hunting”, is there?

GOOD MORROW kind folks and WELCOME to this SALACIOUS episode of the Doctor’s Whooch, as presented by the DELECTABLE Danica and the BAWDIFOROUS Brandon.

THIS WEEK! A missive regarding “THE WITCHFINDERS”, starring one Mr. ALAN CUMMING, and it may in fact be his GREATEST performance since the RADIANT JOY of JOSIE AND THE PUSSYCATS was BESTOWED upon this world.

It was fun.

Outro music is “Witchy Woman” by The Eagles

Doctor Whooch // Episode 144 // Post Bazos and Jeff

In which we invited the ire of a billionaire. But I mean… what ELSE is new.

On this week’s show, it’s “Kerblam!” – the 7th episode in the stellar 11th series of Doctor Who! In what might be our best (or worst?) episode yet, we lobby to get paid a lot of money to help the masses. And only a heartless person would deny our request.

Outro music is a “Bitch Better Have My Money” by Rihanna

Listen to more episodes of Doctor Whooch…

Doctor Whooch // Episode 143 // Now Is Not The Time For Subtlety

What part of “be a good person” was hard to understand?

On this week’s episode, Danica and Brandon are talking about the series 11 episode of Doctor Who entitled “Demons of the Punjab” as only two white people can: with unearned confidence. Which makes them uncomfortable and awkward. So hey, all in all, a pretty regular episode of the show. Enjoy!

Outro music is a “First Love” by Emmy the Great

Stan Lee

What can really be said? Or I guess, what can really be said succinctly.

To the memory of The Man we knew, a construct of his own devising. A showman. A storyteller. Who through collaboration, created universes.

There’s so much to say, both good and bad. But today, this will do.

Doctor Whooch // Episode 142 // Diagnosis: Adric’s Disease

Apologize? Apologize for what!

On this week’s show, Danica and Brandon are talking about “The Tsuranga Conundrum”, which puts The Doctor and Team TARDIS in a bit of a space pickle. Also, there’s a wild space pregnancy, and a WHOLE LOT OF BROKEN FAMILY FEELS. And a cute as hell monster creature. So. There’s that.

Outro music is a “Sweet Escape” by Gwen Stefani

Doctor Whooch // Episode 141 // There Are No Spiders In This One

WHY WOULD YOU SUGGEST IT?

On this week’s show, Brandon goes it alone… sort of… as Danica’s phobia of spiders comes into play. Thankfully, Kat from Verity is on hand, as a great guest host to talk about the series 11 episode… (checks papers) “Arachnids in the U.K.” Which is almost definitely about space unicorns and not spiders. Almost definitely.

Outro music is a metal cover of Sex and the City we found on the internet.
