Doctor Whooch // Episode 131 // Bitches Get Snitches

In which Devin has to moderate a domestic dispute.

Welcome back to (WHY ARE WE DOING THIS) a full on, deep dive into Torchwood: Miracle Day, with your regular hosts, Danica and Brandon, and our irregular host, Devin R. Bruce. On this week’s show: “Escape to L.A.”! It’s… interesting. At almost all times, at least one of us can’t remember the names of the Americans on the show, which is fun. Also, there’s a lot of yelling. TORCHWOOD.

Outro music is “Drinking In L.A.” by Bran Van 3000

Doctor Whooch // Episode 130 // Getting Jacked

In which FINALLY, all the weird sex and terrible relationships we’ve come to expect from Torchwood arrive!

Welcome back to the sex house, babies! And the first and only episode we go out of our way to name check the man who put a seamless scene of butts together. Congrats, Michael N Knue – you did it! Anyway, Brandon, Danica and Devin are still trying to get through Miracle Day, and something terrible is coming. But in this episode, it’s just folks who are coming. Do… do you get it? Oh, you get it.

Outro music is “Let’s Get It On” by Marvin Gay

Doctor Whooch // Episode 129 // Forget it Rex. It’s Banana Town.

In which the world still has flip phones because OF COURSE THEY DO.

Danica, Brandon and Devin are back for more Torchwood for some reason. In THIS episode (entitled “Rendition”) we attempt to remember Rex’s basic-ass American name, with diminishing results. Also! Evil instructions are related through triangle, and Bill Pullman is not dead. Bill Paxton is. We checked. Like… the internet, not… not any bodies or anything. Oh god just stop typing.

Outro music is “American Girl” by Elle King

Doctor Whooch // Episode 128 // 8 Shotguns and a Baby

Hello ladies. Hello laddies. We’re BACK.

Welcome to a very special season of Doctor Whooch, in which we dig into the final season of Torchwood (Miracle Day!) with a very special guest… Devin R. Bruce! He’s going to be here for all ten episodes and he’s very uncomfortable about it which means he’s perfect for the job. (He’s great.)

On this episode – we’re talking about Episode One entitled “The New World”. Inside: Danica kills English professors! Everyone has VERY LEGITIMATELY AMERICAN NAMES. There’s a baby with a shotgun? Probably! It’s Torchwood. And also, Rhys still isn’t dead, and Brandon can not handle it.

Friggen Rhys.

Outro music is “I Sat By The Ocean” covered by Gaba Kulka

Doctor Whooch // Episode 127 // Best Space Friend Chad

In which we say good-bye… and good riddance.

Danica and Brandon are back to finally give their tipsy opinions on “Twice Upon A Time”, the final Moffat era Doctor Who episode. And while it ALSO sadly marks the end of Peter Capaldi’s time as the Doctor, they pull no punches.

And sure, some might say we should have put this episode out before now, but here at Doctor Whooch, we like our takes like we like our drinks: on ice.

So there.

Outro music is: “If I Could Turn Back Time” by Riot of Color

Doctor Whooch // Episode 126 // Nobody Dies… That We Saw

In which a kid slides directly into his dad’s DMs and then catches the consumption.

It’s part two of our spectacular Companions Season finalé, in which we continue to talk about The Curse of the Black Spot with Doctor Who podcast luminaries Erika Ensign and Steven Schapansky!

In this episode, a Steven Moffat conspiracy theory is hatched, and we discuss how Doctor Who fans aren’t detail oriented at all, and how crowns are pretty dope. Plus: drunk Chris Chibnall talk! Also, the appearance of some pod cats! No, we don’t really edit, why do you ask?

Outro music is “Pinball Wizard” as covered by The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain, which you should see the full video for.

Pod People // Brandon on Drink This Podcast

Did you know that getting drunk on a podcast is a thing? Wild, right?

A little while back, Brandon was invited onto Drink This Podcast to talk about story. For regular listeners of Doctor Whooch, you’ll know it goes… as well as can be expected, as Brandon gets more and more incoherent over the course of two episodes.

Episode 74: HOW DO WE GET THERE? WE KILL THE WIFE? GREAT IDEA! (Listen here)

Today we are joined by new friend of the show Brandon Schatz, owner proprietor of Variant Edition Comics for our first Paul written docket, and another in our ongoing series about story telling and pop-culture narratives. We dive into our favourite shows, what kind of story telling we want to see, and how different mediums play off each and influence each other.

Episode 75: I ASSUME ITS WHAT DOING CRACK IS LIKE (Listen here)

Today we are joined again by our new old friend Brandon Schatz for part 2 of our conversation around narrative story telling. we attempt to abandon our TV conversation and move in to other forms of narrative, get drawn back into the same old podcast conversation, and then back to television, before settling on video games, and then it all falls apart, in the best possible way. 

Pod People // Danica on Radio Free Skaro

Hey there folks! We have some exciting news! A little while back, Danica was invited to take part in an episode of Radio Free Skaroand this week, the audio is out there in the cloud, ready for your ears.

Here’s RFS’ description of the episode. (Click here to listen/download.)

Sad news to impart this week, with the death of Doctor Who director and television pioneer Paddy Russell, who directed “The Massacre”, “Invasion of the Dinosaurs”, “Pyramids of Mars”, and “Horror of Fang Rock”, along with many other non-Who programmes on UK television. We also have news of Shada on DVD in North America, the continued audio adventures of River Song, doings transpiring at Titan Comics regarding the Doctor Who comics line, and in Second Chances we look at “The Eaters of Light” with Doctor Whooch host and Edmonton comic shop owner Danica LeBlanc!

Speaking as the “Brandon” half of Submet Industries, I can wholeheartedly say this is worth a listen – especially if you want to hear Danica talk about her (and our) Moffat opinions with some folks who don’t hate the man.

Doctor Whooch // Episode 125 // SWORD BOX!

In which we offend the southern states and maybe also most of the British.

It’s part one of our HUGE finalé to our companion of Doctor Whooch – featuring Doctor Who podcast luminaries Erika Ensign and Steven Schapansky! This one has it all. Or it would if we hadn’t split it in two. So I guess this one has roughly half. BUT WHAT A HALF IT IS. We blame Saskatchewan for things, discover Steven’s superpower, decide that Arthur Darvill is British AF and toss out spoilers for Earthshock. So if you’re listening to this in 1982, uh… whoops.

Outro music is “Oceans Brawl” by Coeur de pirate
