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 // Episode 115 // Pyramid Scheme

In which we’re fist deep in time spaghetti.

On this week’s show, Danica and Brandon are thrown into the deep end of Moffatisms as they try to swim through “The Pyramid At The End Of The World”. It doesn’t go well. They also get into Moffat really only using his own stuff unless an old bit of Who slots in, seemingly so he can take all the credit and be the best boy. Is that too harsh? Whatever. You love it.

Doctor Whooch // Episode 114 // This Episode Was Bullsh*t

In which we’d like Stephen Moffat to leave sooner rather than later but ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Hey, remember that time The Doctor fucked a Pope? Well, Brandon and Danica do. Or at least they think they do. Brandon is also sure that Stephen Moffat got divorced, but that wasn’t true so much as it FELT true. Anyway. On this week’s show, they watch “Extremis” and it’s not very good. You’ve been warned, I guess.

Doctor Whooch // Episode 113 // Nothing Bad Ever Happens In Space

In which Brandon forgets the word for “e-mail”.

Hey buds. On this week’s show, Danica and Brandon are not cool with everyone being out in space again, and for good reason. Because… well, every episode of Doctor Who has danger, but space stuff usually involves murders and body snatching and that’s not their jam even slightly. Also, Brandon breaks out his amazing Nardole impression, and it’s preeeeetty spot on.

Outro music is “Space” by Something Corporate

Doctor Whooch // Episode 112 // Y’All Basic

With apologies to all the Marks and Mikes out there.

This week, Danica and Brandon are spooked by bugs and a house that is creepy as hell. Also, the cats almost murder them and ruin the podcast. Boy, that sure would have been a twist. But no one died. Probably. Or maybe we’re ghosts. You’ll have to listen to find out.

Outro music is “Black Magic” by Little Mix

Doctor Whooch // Episode 111 // European Pie Culture

In which Danica’s cold, cold heart is awoked.

On this week’s show, Brandon and Danica travel to 1814 to see The Doctor and Bill fight Scaffolding in the Series 10 episode “Thin Ice”. Along the way, they classify different types of orphans, the show addresses racism (?) and Bill is rad as hell. We loved this episode and Sarah Dollard is our new queen now.

Outro music is “Elephant” by Hannah Georgas

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.
