Doctor Whooch // Episode 110 // Bone Fountain

In which we put a phrase in a mausoleum. And there’s a good chance that Brandon doesn’t know what a mausoleum actually is.

This week, Series 10 continues with the second episode “Smile”, and for the most part Brandon and Danica stay on topic. But then there’s the potential of Torchwood porn and alternative meanings for the BBC. And also Danica is horribly insensitive about British history, but to be fair, the British are history’s villain. Except when there are Nazis or sometimes the French.

Doctor Whooch // Episode 109 // TARDIS Means Friendship!

We’re back! Hide yo’ companions!

Brandon and Danica return to podcasting with a new companion, a gentle shot, and a zest for life(or whatever optimists say – we aren’t, so we’re just spitballing right now).

They manage to stay on topic until Brandon comes up with a fantastic theory about the similarities between companions. You’ll have to listen to the episode, I’m not going to ruin it here for you. Who do you think I am? @SavedYouAClick? SIR OR MADAM, I AM OFFENDED.

Anyway, listen while the two fall in love with Bill, are still offended by Moffat-isms, and maybe just maybe are thinking positively about Series 10.

Doctor Whooch in 2017

Hello everyone, and welcome to a brand new year of Doctor Whooch.

Kind of.

Sort of.

Good-Bye 2016

We somehow managed to put out 34 episodes… which was a bit of a feat when you consider how our 2016 went. Attempting to maintain a regular schedule on a podcast that requires quite a bit of alcohol intake is hard enough. When you throw in moving a business and dealing with depression, it becomes a very delicate juggling act that was extremely hard to maintain. Obviously the last thing that we wanted was for this podcast to become a point of stress… and by the end of this past year, it was starting to feel more and more like hard work.

So we’re changing some things.

The 2017 Schedule

Going forward, Doctor Whooch will exist in two forms. While a season is airing, we’ll be right there (or just slightly behind), slurring our opinions about Steven Moffat and generally being terrible people on a regular, if not weekly schedule. While the show is off, we’ll be putting the call out to friends and the internet to see who wants to be on the show – and once we have around 6 of those ready to go, you’ll get a “season” of folks getting drunk and talking about what they love about Doctor Who.

With this schedule, we hope to re-capture the point of this whole endeavour – to eat, drink and be merry while talking about a show that means a lot to us both. Some of our very best (and most drunkingest) episodes have come from having guests on to add to the conversation and take things in crazy new directions, so having off-season episodes revolve around that just seems like a great idea.

#ThirstyThursday

Oh, and also in the downtime, we’ve been coming up with ways to keep your Thursdays thirsty while we build up episodes. This includes running some of Brandon’s old Drunk Comic Recaps, re-running “classic” episodes of Doctor Whooch, and posting pictures of some hot-as-shit people… because here at Submet Industries, we’re looking to take care of all of your thirsts.

So.

Replay // Doctor Whooch and a Fist Full of Husbands

This week, we’re representing the episode where we watched last year’s Doctor Who Christmas Special: The Husbands of River Song.

Not only would it be River Song’s swan song, it would be the last episode of Doctor Who we would get for an entire calendar year, which sucked. Anyway, take a trip back! If we remember this episode properly (and let’s face it, we probably don’t), it was rompy as hell and we didn’t totally hate everything Steven Moffat did, which is different for us.

We’ll talk with you all again soon!

Doctor Whooch // Episode 108 // Yelling At Tropes

In which we are human monsters.

Check it nerds: it’s our season finalé. We have seasons now. DEAL WITH IT DOT GIF.

On this week’s show: it’s THE RETURN OF DOCTOR MYSTERIO or us, as we see it, a show for FRIGGEN NERDS. Like us. We’re the nerds. So yeah. We discuss this year’s Doctor Who Christmas special in which folks unzip their heads and also there is a lot of Superman references that Steven Moffat googled a bit. Over the course of the show, we tear into silver age comics and introduce to you the French Doctor and it is not offensive. So don’t worry about it.

We said don’t worry about it.

Doctor Whooch // Episode 107 // Good Bonkers

In which we (finally) get to the thrilling conclusion of CLASS! And uh, it’s a thing.

So! With the Doctor Who Christmas Special just around the corner, we’re going face deep into “The Lost”, which wraps up this whole weird experiment. As we do so, we go swiftly off the rails, just like the show did, and talk about chaperones going downtown, what constitutes a good bonkers, and how Ram is pretty useless, among other things.

Stay tuned over the holiday season for our take on the Christmas Special! We’ll see you in 2017.

Doctor Whooch // Episode 106 // Professors of Doctor Who

In which everything you hear is adatomically correct.

On this episode, Danica and Brandon are nearing the end of Class with episode seven – “The Metaphysical Engine or What Quill Did”, and the whole thing is about deep smooching as three grown ass adults bang around in a tub. Also, someone murders a satan, and the ending is super weird. But uh… that’s Class.

Outro music is “Tubthumping” by Pastel Vespa

Doctor Whooch // Episode 104 // Crazy Shadow Sex Knives

In which we try to make sense of Class and might fail in the process.

On this week’s show, Brandon and Danica take another spin at trying to explain what’s been happening on Class as they recap “Brave-Ish Heart” – the fifth episode in the first series. The results of which are very mixed, but hey, at least you get another one of Brandon’s surreal episode descriptions of bonkers plot points! Also on this episode: we still love Brooklyn 99, y’all! It’s amazing.

Outro music is “Fight Song” by Rachel Platten.

Doctor Whooch // Episode 103 // Trans-Dimensional Heart Sexting

In which Class goes sideways in a really weird way, but hey, we’re drunk, so whatever.

On this week’s show, we reach the midpoint of CLASS with episode four, “Co-Owner of a Lonely Heart” and things get really weird. Are you ready for crazy teen/shadow monster sex scene parallels? What about bouts of murder rage and existential crisis about a weapon filled with souls? If only our biggest problems were “my heart is connected to a shadow monster” and not “the real world is filled with garbage”. Is that where we’re at? WHO KNOWS!

Outro music is “Owner of a Lonely Heart” by Grizzly Bear.

Doctor Whooch // Episode 102 // Active Listening

In which we encourage you all to embrace the abyss. (It’s an uplifting episode.)

On this week’s show, we demonstrate our veal for life by steering into some dark skids. Also, we talk about the third episode of Class, “Night Visiting”, which is pretty friggen great you guys. How will Drunk Brandon and Danica deal with teens experiencing loss and emotion? Let’s say well. It goes well.

Also hey, when we were looking for the outro music for this episode, we stumbled across a whole bunch of white German men singing “It’s Raining Men” so here’s a link to that.
