Doctor Whooch (general)

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.

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?

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.

In which WE CREATE A GOD.

We're back, and still on our bullshit, watching more of Torchwood: Miracle Day. Specifically, "The Middle Men"

So watching this is a trip, friends. Was Russell T. Davies trying to warn us about the future using VERY FLAWED TELEVISION? Let’s say that is the case, otherwise, WHAT IS THE POINT OF ALL THIS.

Also: a woman taking down her terrible, rich boss is our favourite person. Who would have guessed! Also also? A Superman! Pysch? And what 80s and 90s cartoons were Super Drugs.

Spoiler alert: the bleakest Torchwood episode is here.

On this week's show: ash. Sadness. The void grabs our souls with cold tendrils, refusing to let go. All in all: Torchwood. Danica, Brandon and Devin push their way through the 5th episode of Miracle Day, entitled "Categories of Life", and let's just say... it's an experience. Also: get a look at the origin story of Danica and Brandon through Devin's point of view! That part is fun.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
