Doctor Whooch // Episode 142 // Diagnosis: Adric’s Disease

Apologize? Apologize for what!

On this week’s show, Danica and Brandon are talking about “The Tsuranga Conundrum”, which puts The Doctor and Team TARDIS in a bit of a space pickle. Also, there’s a wild space pregnancy, and a WHOLE LOT OF BROKEN FAMILY FEELS. And a cute as hell monster creature. So. There’s that.

Outro music is a “Sweet Escape” by Gwen Stefani

Doctor Whooch // Episode 141 // There Are No Spiders In This One

WHY WOULD YOU SUGGEST IT?

On this week’s show, Brandon goes it alone… sort of… as Danica’s phobia of spiders comes into play. Thankfully, Kat from Verity is on hand, as a great guest host to talk about the series 11 episode… (checks papers) “Arachnids in the U.K.” Which is almost definitely about space unicorns and not spiders. Almost definitely.

Outro music is a metal cover of Sex and the City we found on the internet.

Doctor Whooch // Episode 139 // Delayed Gratification with Pickles and Bumble

In which NO ONE CRIES HOW DARE YOU SUGGEST IT.

On this week’s episode, The Doctor and her best friends are out in spppaaaaaaaaaace! Which is slightly problematic when you’re, you know, in the vacuum of it, and not in a ship. But no worries! There are ships, and Brandon and Danica DEFINITELY remember the names of who the pilots were and they don’t at all ruin the emotional resonance of many scenes. Anyway, hey! It’s “The Ghost Monument” and it is brilliant, and thank you all for listening.

Outro music is “Best Friend” by Foster the People

You can listen to “So You Think You Can Danica” with Danica and our good friend Devin R. Bruce by heading over here!


Listen to the latest episodes of Doctor Whooch…

Doctor Whooch // Episode 138 // About Damn Time

On this week’s show… uh… huh. I dunno. Did anything cool happen recently? With Doctor Who? Ah, we’ll think of something.

FINALLY, Doctor Who is back, and it is a brand new era, with Jodie Whittaker as The Doctor, and a bevy of new folks behind the scenes! Do we have opinions? Will we compare this to Moffat era stuff? All good questions, you. Clever, clever. Do a listen, and we’re sure you’ll find the answers you’re looking for, just… fairly incoherently.

Outro music is “Changes” by Bananarama

Listen to the latest episodes of Doctor Whooch…

Radio Free Skaro #655 // Her Majesty

Last weekend, at the Edmonton Expo, Danica was part of a Doctor Who panel that was recorded for this week’s Radio Free Skaro! 

If you’re in the mood to hear more (and there’s a lot more) head over to the Radio Free Skaro website where you’ll get a jam packed episode. Turns out, one week away from the big Series 11 premiere, there’s a lot to cover…


Some other times some misguided folks invited us onto their podcasts…

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 // 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

Doctor Whooch // Episode 120 // Bill Deserved More

In which we say good-bye for now, and good riddance reaaaaalllll soon.

On this week’s season finale of Doctor Whooch, Danica and Brandon are talking about the season finale of Series 10 of Doctor Who, “The Doctor Falls”. It’s like Wonderfalls, but way more depressing. Because at least stuff happened in that. Do you remember Wonderfalls? Anyways.

Listen to them talk about how elevators work, or how nothing was really accomplished by anyone. Also there were a lot of guns and two Masters and still, nothing. Oh, and the Doctor was a whiny baby, but like, what’s different about that?

Outro music is “Wedding Bell Blues” by The 5th Dimension.
