Doctor Whooch Is Four Years Old Oh God How

The title of this post really gives the game away.

Anyway: yes! It has inexplicably been four years since we started up Doctor Whooch, and we’re celebrating by re-running our very first episode for you today.

Fair warning: it is rough as hell, but you still probably hear us having fun as we stumble around, trying to find our rhythm.

Enjoy!

In this first episode, Brandon talks about watching the first two episodes of Series One (“Rose” & “The End of the World”) for the first time. Also Danica nearly dies and Brandon takes a joke to a pretty terrible place. Because that’s what he does.

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!

Replay // Doctor Whooch and the Case of the Cry Face Ianto

We’ll be starting up Doctor Whooch’s 2016 new episodes next week, but first let’s go back and check out one of our favourite episodes of olde. It involves guest host James Leask (of Comics! The Blog, Moneyballas, and Twitter fame), Torchwood, ugly cry face Ianto, and an uncomfortably sexy Cyberwoman.

Please enjoy Episode 21, Ianto, No! and tune in for episode 77 on January 14.
