Doctor Whooch (general)

In which we bid a fond farewell to the fam.

On this week's show, Danica and Brandon watched "The Battle of Ranskoor Av Kolos" and they have some thoughts! Mostly about character development through the season, but partly on the show's continuing efforts to confront ideas that are really tearing down society. Like organized religion! Yayyy!

In which Norwegian Erik is a terrible father.

Seriously. Just the worst.

On this week's show, Danica and Brandon discuss "It Takes You Away", in which an idiot makes a lot of terrible life choices, and then has to be saved from destroying all of existence. Could you imagine? "Oh, how did the universe end. With the Time War? Some bullshit with the Daleks? Nah, it was Erik, who wanted a couple more dirty smooches."

GTFO of here, Erik. You dummy.

Hi, there's no metaphors in "witch hunting", is there?

GOOD MORROW kind folks and WELCOME to this SALACIOUS episode of the Doctor's Whooch, as presented by the DELECTABLE Danica and the BAWDIFOROUS Brandon.

THIS WEEK! A missive regarding "THE WITCHFINDERS", starring one Mr. ALAN CUMMING, and it may in fact be his GREATEST performance since the RADIANT JOY of JOSIE AND THE PUSSYCATS was BESTOWED upon this world.

It was fun.

On this week's show, it's "Kerblam!" - the 7th episode in the stellar 11th series of Doctor Who! In what might be our best (or worst?) episode yet, we lobby to get paid a lot of money to help the masses. And only a heartless person would deny our request.

On this week's episode, Danica and Brandon are talking about the series 11 episode of Doctor Who entitled "Demons of the Punjab" as only two white people can: with unearned confidence. Which makes them uncomfortable and awkward. So hey, all in all, a pretty regular episode of the show. Enjoy!

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.

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.

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.

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.

...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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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?

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.

In which Class is in session. Because... because, get it? Class? Oh, you get it.

Danica and Brandon return this week to talk about the first two episodes of CLASS - the latest Doctor Who spin-off show that they can't quite remember the episode titles for! (Psst: they're "For Tonight We Might Die" and "The Coach with the Dragon Tattoo"). Along the way, they stumble through plot points such as SPACE DRAGONS and ROBOT MAKE-OUTS and then meander into other pop culture stuff happening like TIMELESS. Have you been watching that? You should be watching that.

In which we celebrate good time. C'mon.

On what is almost definitely Doctor Whooch's first and only A Hundredth episode, we have a couple of guests that have never been on the show before... sober Brandon and Danica! No lies, this one is weird. But if you ever wondered how much of the show comes about because we're drunk, and how much of the show is just us, well... you're going to get your answer.

Thank you to everyone who listens to the show - you mean a lot to us, and we're pretty fond of you. Here's to many more over the next few years.

The alcohol flows freely on this week's celebratory 100th episode, in with Danica and Brandon welcome special guest Chris Sikkenga (of Montreal Sauce and Film Frown) to the show! Chris (the scamp) chose the final episode of Series 1 to watch - The Parting of Ways - and the gang gets well and truly sauced and forgets to talk about the plot for much of the hour. Get ready for some McConaughey and try some of Jackie Tyler's Space Jerky as we all talk about Daleks being stage divas, sex in the undernet, and Trevor. Also: Danica throws hands at T-Swift. All this, and a lot more!

On this week's show, we celebrate our First Hundo with special guest Jorts Bazingles - aka Superfan Josh Bazin. Listen as Brandon almost gets too drunk to function drinking a Delicious Concoction! Swoon at the insights of Jorts! Marvel at the patience of Danica! All while they attempt to explain the plot of "A Town Called Mercy" from the 7th Series to varying degrees of success.

Thanks again to Jorts for appearing on the program. You can find Jorts on Twitter at @joshYEG.

On this week's show: Danica and Brandon will babysit your kids! It could be the worst decision of your life. Also: they watch "Time Heist" from Series 8 and are... pleasantly surprised by how much they enjoyed it. Also also: they are pretty loopy tired from moving a whole comic store, so uh... strap in. It's an interesting ride.

It's a whole thing with Mark Gatiss being an old man who suddenly isn't so old and is both a figurative and literal monster. Also, there's a church, and like family stuff? Basically, there's a lot to try and pay attention to while Tennant is swanning around making faces and ruffling his hair and stuff. Yeah girl, go get itttt.

In which we return to Series 8 with our eyes narrows and our hearts cold and dead.

On this week's show, Danica and Brandon take a trip back to the early days of the 12th Doctor by visiting "Robot of Sherwood" and get distracted with a very loose ranking of various Robin Hoods. It's a whole episode filled with two white dudes being snippy at each other and man, you wonder if there will be any drunk opinions about THAT.

It's been a while, but we're back with new episodes, and we're still travelling on the River Song timeline. Which gets confusing. But we're doing it. This week? It's The Time of Angels from Series Five and nothing bad happens at all! Except for, you know, all the horrible things that happen. Then it's straight onto pop culture, because we watch other things to, sometimes. When we're not doing comic store stuff.

On this week's show, it's "The Wedding of River Song" as we continue to hop through the River Song timeline. Guess what? It's complicated, and it's only going to get more confusing as we go, because it's about to loop in on itself. Funnnnnnnnnn. Also FUN FACT: did you know that this was the episode we watched when we first met each other? IT WAS. And so you get a sappy story alongside this one where Winston Churchill is Caesar. Yeah, shit gets bananas, and The Doctor ends up looking like a Hobo Matt Fraction.

Hmm. Well, whatever it is, there's a heaping spoonful of misogyny in there because we can't have nice things. Also, we talk about that. The part where we can't have nice things, but we SHOULD, because sci-fi can be ANYTHING TO ANYBODY, so why not do that? And uh OH OH OH, it was called "The Bells of Saint John". Ha. I KNEW I'd remember that.

On this week's episode of Doctor Whooch, Brandon experiences an episode he has never seen before: "Love & Monsters". It's a pretty good episode until it suddenly, violently isn't. The whole thing follows a terrible man who is making a YouTube video of some kind where he talks about trying to stalk The Doctor and dancing in his underwear. Then a thing happens and things get really weird. Like... REALLY weird. You just... you kind of have to see it to believe it. Or listen to this episode. Whatever you wish.

Danica and Brandon are back with their first episode of 2016 with a slurry dissection of the first two episodes of TORCHWOOD: CHILDREN OF EARTH. Or is that Children of Man? Or Men? Brandon is not good with titles, even when he is sober.

There's a lot of great stuff to talk about in this episode, such as Captain Jack's complete inability to comprehend CHILDREN, but we also make time to talk about the recent SHERLOCK special where a white dude explains feminism to a room full of silent women. That'll probably go over well.

What? Anyway. "The Husbands of River Song". Rompy as hell, and tons of fun. But probably not as much fun as we had talking about it while super hammered after an... interesting Christmas.

It's Series finalé time with Clara and The Doctor as Brandon and Danica discuss "Hell Bent" - the final episode of Series 9. What did we think of Clara's re-return and good-bye? Also, all that Gallifrey stuff? And Me? We have a feeling that if you listen, you'll find out. Call it a hunch. A SEXY HUNCH.

Also! With the series concluded, and the holidays approaching, we'll be taking some time off. (It is really hard getting hammered on a weekly basis when you only get one day off from work every 3 weeks or so.) You'll be able to catch our next episode before the year is over as we discuss this year's Christmas Special - and then we'll return in the new year with weekly (!) episodes and a new(ish) format.

Thank you so much for sticking around for 75 episodes. Hopefully we're around for many more!

Hey everyone: fun fact. It's hard to be wacky drunks when an episode of Doctor Who is so good. Which means Danica and Brandon just watched Series 9, Episode 8 (The Zygon Inversion) and it was pretty amazing. That's not to say they aren't weird and stumbling, because they are. We are. Writing in the third person is hard, you guys. Also, they talk about some other shows probably. Scandal? I think? And something else.

Also, we search for The Master slash fic (but generally forget to finish that quest), find out that we're not good with boats, and Danica swears at the cats and generally can't say words or names.

Mainly, the fact that he seemingly skipped an entire disc of David Tennant's run on Doctor Who. To that end, they watch episodes 8 and 9 of Series 2: "The Impossible Planet" and "The Satan Pit" and now Brandon is almost whole again. All he needs to do is see "Love and Monsters" which he has been warned will be a thing. So there's that.

In which there's more Torchwood, and so there is more drinking.

So hey, sometimes you keep watching Torchwood and it makes you really sad. But you're also drunk, so it's kind of okay? Brandon and Danica almost make their way to the end of Series Two with episode 11 ("Adrift") and Episode 12 ("Fragments"). Everybody's under bricks!

In which we destroy any goodwill we had with this episode title. Hiiiiiieeeeeeee! (waves)

On this week's episode, Danica and Brandon talk about Mila Kunis and space bees, we think. It's a bit blurry. And a lot slurry. Also: Ray Romano impressions, THE MASTER, and uh... oh. Yes. We watched "The Sound of Drums" and "Last of the Timelords", and Brandon didn't fall asleep this time. YOU ONLY HAD ONE JOB, BRANDON.

In which Brandon TOTALLY DIDN'T FALL ASLEEP WATCHING ONE OF THE EPISODES YOU GUYS.

This week, Danica and Brandon are drinking Captain Jacks in honour of Captain Jack, and watching some Martha Jones episodes - 42 and Utopia. What happens next, will surprise you.

Actually, it won't. They get drunk and talk about the episode while Brandon fights off sleep like a champ. We're terrible at clickbait.

In which we sit in an empty apartment, and say good-bye. To the apartment. We will probably never stop getting drunk and watching Doctor Who. So.

In this week's episode, we watched "Army of Ghosts" and "Doomsday", which included not-Martha Jones and a good-bye to Rose Tyler. It was awesome, and we got all of the feels pretty hard. We also slur through what we think the difference between Moffet twists and Davis twists are, so that's a thing too. Also, cats? Maybe! Mad Max? Also probably! We were drunk, you'll probably remember more than we do.

In which Brandon got so drunk he's forgotten everything that's happened in this episode. So.

This week, we dig into more Torchwood, starting with "Something Borrowed" and barrelling right into "From Out Of The Rain". They eventually get around to talking about them, but slur wildly off into comics talk and how to socialize without books. Oh and Brandon goes off on some wild tangents, and Danica just let's it happen, because it's funnier that way.

In which we are the least safe for work. So.

It's an all Craig episode this round, as Brandon and Danica celebrate the grand opening of their comic shop (Variant Edition in Edmonton, Alberta) by drinking way too much and reading Doctor Who slash fic. Oh, and they also watch the two Craig episodes - The Lodger (Series 5, Episode 11) and Closing Time (Series 6, Episode 12).

But seriously folks, maybe don't listen to this one around people. For reasons.

Brought to you by the smooth taste of Alberta's Drinkenist Vodka: Glacier Fist. Glacier Fist. Take a fist of this.

In this week's episode, we watch the final episodes with The Ponds, "The Power of Three" and "The Angels Take Manhattan". Were there tears? Maybe. Probably. But hey, we miss those loveable scamps. Also, we talk about Daredevil, which was rad, and tell you all about our legitimate business, as legitimate business owners.

In this week's episode, we had a bad day and watched Torchwood to feel better about ourselves. At least there was alcohol.

In which we bacon bacon bacon bacon bacon.

This week, we watch The Three Doctors, and finally check in with The Curse of the Fatal Death - and we have various opinions that we can't quite remember. Because: alcohol! But more importantly, we go off the rails all the time, talking about various meat liquors and Clone High, and all sorts of various shenanigans. It's a good time. Also: we've done more than 50 episodes. That is crazy.
