Doctor Whooch


Remember when we were weekly? Apparently we don't. In a particularly inebriated outing, Danica and Brandon (that's us!) are talking about this year's Christmas Special - which apparently was at one point intended to be Steven Moffat's swan song? 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.

Also: The Mindy Project! Supergirl! More! And an announcement about our schedule in 2016! YES!

Outro music is "Locomotion" by Kylie Minogue. No reason.

In which we celebrate out 75th-ish episode the same way we always do: stumbling through our thoughts.

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!

In which our timing is perfect, and everyone needs to calm their shit, probably.

We start with narrating Cat Life, because of COURSE we do. Then it's straight into "Heaven Sent" - the 11th episode of Doctor Who's 9th Series, which we were too drunk to get emotional about. These things happen, right? But also: Capaldi, yeah? Yeah. Then it's onwards to very VERY light spoilers regarding Jessica Jones's fight against patriarchy wearing a David Tennant suit, and general stumbling about. Yay!

In which

So we all know what happens in this episode, right? Like, we're all on board? Because there's going to be some spoilers. Just... clllllll kinds of them. So.

This week, Brandon and Danica are talking about "Face The Raven" - the 10th episode of Doctor Who's 9th series. Maisie Williams is there! That's not really a spoiler. Well it is, but... hey, you know what? Let's not beat around the bush here. You know why you're downloading this. You want to hear drunk people talk about the thing that happened. Well, we do! So yay? Oh, and then we wax poetic about Jessica Jones, because you guys, Jessica Jones is amazing and heartbreaking. Yeah.

Outro music is "Don't Fear the Reaper" by Blue Öyster Cult.

To sleep, perchance to dream of a better episode.

On this week's show, Danica and Brandon drunkenly talk about this week's... interesting episode of Doctor Who - Series 9, Episode 9, "Sleep No More". Basically, we kind of make fun of it, because... sleep monsters? Or maybe a legitimately viral video? Or something. We were pretty drunk.

And as an added bonus, Brandon forgot to edit the podcast on his day off, so uh... there's that. Wait, is that what we call a "bonus"? Hmm.

In which, uh... we really liked the new Doctor Who episode?

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. Remembering is also hard, when you WERE drunk, and ARE sober several days later.

Outro music is "War (What Is It Good For)" as performed by Cory and Topanga on Boy Meets World. Because of course it is.

In which we are brimming with allegories and metaphors, and totally know the difference between the two.

This week, Brandon and Danica are watching "The Zygon Invasion" (Series 9, Episode 7 of Doctor Who) and end up being drunkenly riveted by the whole episode. I mean really, you guys - this was a crackerjack episode. There was Osgood! Jokes! Doctor Funkenstein! Seriously, what more do you want? Some Once Upon a Time chatter? Maybe. Probably not, but we don't care. WE DON'T. (We do. We love you.)

In which we don't got nobody that we can depend on.

On this week's episode, Danica and Brandon stumble through the hodgepodge of Doctor Who's 6th episode of Series 9 - The Woman Who Lived. It's a bit of a shambles, honestly but there's also a fire breathing space lion king, so it's not as though there wasn't anything awesome to talk about. Oh, and also, there's discussion of Once Upon A Time and The Mindy Project, because of course there is.

In which the secret ingredient is vodka.

On this week's episode, Danica and Brandon are talking about the Series 9 episode "The Girl Who Died" (Episode 5) and the subject of jowls comes up. I guess. It was a long strange one. Also: lots of drinking! More talk about Once Upon A Time! And vikings! Not necessarily in that order.

Outro music is "For What It's Worth" by Buffalo Springfield

In which we totally know where Guinness comes from, you guys.

This week, Danica and Brandon talk about Before the Flood (Doctor Who Series 9 - Episode 4) and eat pumpkin pie, because it was totally Thanksgiving. And we gave thanks to alcohol. Also in this episode: some Buffy life tips, some disillusion talk, and uh... we've started our yearly binge of Once Upon a Time, so there's that as well.


Outro music is "Black Water" by Of Monsters and Men

In which Brandon and Danica are running on two (?) hours of sleep and then get drunk. Because... yeah. Yes.

Series 9 keeps rolling on, and we're keeping up... mostly. It was a weekend of store events (including a 24 hour event) but there's always time to get crunk and watch The Doctor pal around on a base. Nothing EVER goes wrong on bases, you guys. NOTHING.

Marvel as they don't actually pass out. Tremble as we... as we actually really, really like Series 9. Because SERIES 9, you guys. So good.

Outro music is "All About The Bass" as interpreted by Scott Bradlee & The Postmodern Jukebox.

In which NOTHING will stop us from recording Doctor Whooch. Not even adorable little assholes.

On this week's episode, Brandon and Danica tackle the second part of the Series 9 opening - The Witch's Familiar. There are Daleks! And fighting! And metaphors that we totally understood, maybe. Also slurring. But there's always slurring. Being drunk will do that to you, it seems. That's a thing we've learned, you see.

Outro music is "I Need Never Get Old" by Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats

In which we love all of our little muskox listeners.

Series 9 is here, and has somehow wrecked our alcohol tolerance, so we’re preeeeeeetty drunk. So drunk that we might have ended up offending German people definitely, Christian people probably, and potentially everybody else. So… par for the course? Anyway, if you’ve been waiting (WAITING) to hear us slur our opinions about The Magician’s Apprentice, then you’ve come to the right place. Oh, and at the end, we talk about racial issues and sexism on our drunk podcast and that’s definitely a thing.

In which we swear a bunch and nobody has any problems with anyone or anything on the show. Yup.

On this week's show, we're talking about the series 8 episode "Into the Dalek" and Brandon does a MadLibs by himself, and it's horrible. HORRIBLE. We also learn about space, maybe, and things get mega adoraballs. Oh, and we get really mad at Moffat and then try to rap with him with some real talk, which almost definitely works.

We'll see you next week for SERIES 9 WHAT.

Outro music is the theme song for THE MAGIC SCHOOL BUS

In which we revisit the day we got engaged, with cursing.

First: EXCITING NEWS! Doctor Whooch will be weekly through the end of Series 9, and that's going to be a thing.

Now: as we count down to the premiere of Series 9, we're revisiting the first episode of Series 8: Deep Breath. And guess what. We have Moffat opinions. 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.

And hey, tune in next week for what's essentially the second part of this episode - and then it's straight on to NEW WHO. YESSSSSS.

In which The Doctor and Rose end up on a space station, and absolutely nothing goes wrong.

On this week's episode, Brandon and Danica head back to their roots, and fix a part of Brandon that's broken. 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.

Also? Some Bojack Horseman talk, because that show is stunningly good, and gives us all the feels. ALL OF THEM. Enjoy!

They're not what you think.

On this week's show, things are happening. TERRIBLE THINGS! Or I guess more accurately, drunk things. First, Danica and Brandon watch "The Idiot's Lantern" (Series 2, Episode 7) where the Doctor and Rose fight an HBO show, I guess? Then it's straight onto "The Doctor's Daughter" (Series 4, Episode 6) where we contemplate the meta story and almost break our pickled brains.

Sex stuff will happen.

In which we get drunk and are surprised when Torchwood makes us sad and angry again.

On this week's show Danica and Brandon watch the final episode of Torchwood Series 2 (Exit Wounds) and the 3rd episode of Series 2 of Doctor Who (School Reunion) and end up talking about female agency and empowerment and how both Moffat and Davies both haven't been the best at that. They also share a story about the first time Brandon watched School Reunion, and how he knew Danica was the one. Yup, there's a pretty big swing in this episode. Because we're ballers, you guys.

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.

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.

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 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.

In which things probably get more out of hand.

Our 50th episode continues with the addition of the wonderful Devin R. Bruce as everyone talks about their favourite episodes of Doctor Who. As always, the conversation rarely stays on track because... drunk. Smile as we all yell at James. Laugh as we make terrible jokes. Forgive the few odd cuts because having seven drunk people on a podcast at one time is REALLY HARD. And stay tuned as we start on our next 50. Thank you, everyone.

In which we celebrate 50 episodes of Doctor Whooch by drinking with a bunch of our friends!

It's a two-part celebration of almost two years worth of drinking. Clearly we've been doing something right. Anyway, in the first part of our 50th episode, we have Katie, Jess and Lou from Boozy Boob Tube, along with Cody F. Schmidt and James Leask on the show to talk about the 50th Anniversary Special, "The Day of the Doctor". Along the way, we talk about expensive man hair cuts, the shaming of the elderly, and a whole bunch of other things jumbled amidst drunken laughter. It was a fun time.

On the eve of our 50th episode, we head back to the very beginning of Doctor Who, watching two version of the premiere episode "An Unearthly Child", and the second episode "The Cave of Skulls". Along the way, we talk a bit of business, recount the time we were "fake Who geeks" on a panel, and comment on the literal garbage set that kicked off Doctor Who. Also, Brandon is really drunk and does a bunch of weird voices. The weirdo.

This week, we're back watching sexy Torchwood for the sexy second series episodes "Adam" and "Reset". Only good things happen in these episodes, and no one is cavernously sad. Also, Ianto's cry-face is a million times better. Maybe because he's in the fetal position? Like we said, these were sexy episodes. Also, we watched a lot of Parks and Rec, which is a thing we hadn't really done before now, alongside some (one) slaps and some (lots) of giggles. But you kinda already guessed that part probably. You're so smart. We like your face.

In which Brandon is a parrot for much of the podcast, for reasons.

This week, we return to Torchwood for a pair of second series episodes ("To The Last Man" and "Meat"). Both of these feature meat, but only one features man meat. From there, the usual madness occurs. Brandon goes full German, we administer some British history and sex education and somehow talk about idependant butt stuff. Like you do.

It's the first episode of 2015, and we've dishing on this year's Christmas special, "Last Christmas". There's a lot to talk about in this episode, from the surprising return of a character we thought was gone, to our feels on The Doctor and Clara's new dynamic. Also: Santa! Bojack Horseman! Racism! Wait, maybe that last one shouldn't have an exclaimation point. Oh, and Brandon over-corrects and is not nearly drunk enough.
