Doctor Whooch (general)

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.

Outro music is “Girl on Fire” by Alicia Keys

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.

Outro music is “Drinking In L.A.” by Bran Van 3000

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.

Outro music is “Let's Get It On” by Marvin Gay

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.

Outro music is "American Girl" by Elle King

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.

Outro music is "I Sat By The Ocean" covered by Gaba Kulka

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.

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.

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

In which we discover that Neil Gaiman likes his TARDIS' like he likes his women.

We're continuing our season of companions with Marina Reid Hale (@mrimm) who gets us into a double dose of episodes this week - The Unicorn and the Wasp, and The Doctor's Wife.

We learned a lot. Such as the fact that it's a bad idea to get impregnated by a giant wasp alien. And that wasp people are people too. And that concrete faces can not give consent. It was... a lot. So.

Outro music is "I Am Not A Robot" by Marina and the Diamonds

In which we come into watching "Blink" with good intentions, and leave it lying in a ditch somehow.

Our Companions Season of the show continues with special guests Amber Chipman and Laury Plant, and we proceed to pull strings while we watch a modern classic. Marvel as Brandon can't remember any names. Again. Be totally surprised when Moffat keeps a woman sad and waiting. There's angels. There is dick pics, kinda. There are white girls named Sally. There's... a lot. Get ready to hate us real bad, but please, remember that we love you.

Outro music is "All Star" covered by Tessa Violet & Dodie Clark
