Doctor Whooch Returns…

We can’t begin to tell you how we’re excited to watch new episodes of Doctor Who that don’t have Stephen Moffat’s fingerprints all over them.

Not only that, we’re pleased to announce that after this season of shows wraps up later in the year, we’ll be returning in January with two episodes a month – every month – until the next series of the show airs. No breaks! Only booze.

Because we love you the most.

Until then, stay thirsty!

Doctor Whooch // Episode 137 // The World Is a Vampire (Moleman)

In which we bid Devin adieu as we send him into the SEA…

…of our gratitude. Also, it is his last episode for now. Sad faces all around!

Well, it has come to this. The last episode of Miracle Day, and the last episode of Torchwood. It has been a ride. As Danica and Brandon bid a fond farewell to their season long guest, they all endure and episode where there is a lot of blood, and the world has two buttholes. And if you control the buttholes, you control the world, but only if you have special blood? Torchwood is wild, y’all. And there wasn’t even a lizard people conspiracy!

Outro music is “Deeper Than Beauty” by Sloan

Doctor Whooch // Episode 136 // Cat Butt in the Middle of the World

Well, THAT took a turn. And that’s saying something… seeing how we’re still watching Torchwood.

Folks, Brandon, Danica, and Devin are almost done with this run. It’s the home stretch! The second last episode – Torchwood: The Gathering. In which a bunch of nerds meet up at the centre of the earth to cast spells or something? Who knows at this point. All we REALLY know is that there’s a thing with blood and possibly vampire mole men.

What. It could be a thing.

Doctor Whooch // Episode 135 // Return to Bananatown

More Torchwood! Will Devin ever forgive us for making him watch these? WHO KNOWS.

Torchwood keeps being Torchwood in the eighth episode of Miracle Day. Apparently, three old white dudes wanted to live forever and so now things are really bad because people are dumb and horrible. But don’t worry! This can be solved with a dead lover, and fancy floor paneling.

So that’s what WE’VE been up to. Howsabout you?

Doctor Whooch // Episode 134 // Maintain the Thrust

Thrust is a very important part of Torchwood.

Very important.

Danica, Brandon and Devin are still trying to make their way through Torchwood’s “Miracle Day”, and have arrived at episode seven, “Immortal Sins”.

While Torchwood is usually a catalyst for (entertaining) trash, this week it actually opens up a good conversation about bi-sexuality in popular media. The perfect thing to discuss while drunk! Anyway, it’s not bad, because the flashbacks are good, but then it gets back to the plot, and that’s a horrible mistake, just like this season.

There. We said it.

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 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.

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.
