What the Brexit means. What it means for Doctor Who and the BBC. What it means for humanity. Truth or Consequences. Mean tweets about Donald Trump and Brexit read by David Tennant
We finish up our salute to companions post-Who careers discussing Billie Piper and mostly her time on Penny Dreadful. Also, David Tennant drops by Stephen Colbert.
First we apologize for the technical difficulties on this episode. We lost about 90% of Melissa and the rest of what we got was really garbled. This also delayed the episode a huge deal as Andy tried several fixes and workarounds but mostly it just ended up an editing nightmare.
Basically the last two weeks have just been tricking Andy into watching Who-themed porn. Secret Life of a Call Girl. Billie Piper is now typecast as a ho.
Penny Dreadful is a great show. Why that accent? WHY?!?! Yes, its that bad. League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: replace one James Bond with another.
Tennant on Colbert plays Whos on First. Cumberbatch.
Next week: Daleks!
Apologies for the sound quality this episode. Next week well be much better, we PROMISE.
The new companion is Bill! Do we want more efficient Daleks? Thats a Prince t-shirt!!
Cosplay as Bill. Andy horribly explains the significance of wearing an afro as opposed to straightening your hair. Melissa explains it 800 times better. #AndySoWhite.
Please dont do blackface. Wigs yes, blackface no.
We all wore terrible things in the 80s. Andy still doesnt remember West End vs East End.
Melissa watched Svengali so you dont have to. Seriously, dont watch it for Pearl Mackie. Shes in it for 2 seconds. And its awful.
Freema Ageyman post Who. Sense 8. Wow, that first scene with her. Andy is uncomfortable. Mark loves the complexity. Andy and Melissa cant get in to it. Lost
Star Wars: The Force Awakens cameo. Joey Fatone? Law and Order UK. We just wish we couldve done right by Martha in the show.
Andy and Mark saw The Jungle Book. Amazing looking. Fun for kids and adults. Amazing casting and voice work. Go see this!
Catherine Tate. Not much that weve seen because its a lot of BBC made for tv movies we cant get. Gullivers Travels. The Office. We mostly just end up talking about the British Office vs American Office rather than Catherine Tate.
Minor plot spoilers for Civil War. SPIDER-MAN. Stealing the movie. Black Panther. Ryan Coogler. Vision and Scarlet Witch. His sweaters are on point. John Slattery. Flashbacks to Back to School. No, you move.
Possible new companion casting: Rakhee Thakrar, who was previously on EastEnders. Why we want a person of color as the companion. Bring me the female woman of color! Star Wars: Rogue One trailer. Why do we continue to need to have these conversations in 2016?
Arthur Darvill: our favorite New Who male companion.
Broadchurch. It was cool the Doctor and Rory, but yet not. Great to see him be under suspicion as the priest, but he was great. Did anyone see him as Mephistopheles in Doctor Faustus? No, but we want to. DCs Legends of Tomorrow- the heart of the show is Rip Hunter and time travel. The last two episodes got good again. Minor spoilers- is he willing to kill a child to save his wife and daughter? It cant become the villains Captain Cold and Heatwave power hour.
Next week well talk Captain America: Civil War after Melissa sees it. Shes definitely Team Cap. Cap v Iron Man v Batman v Superman. Well talk Jungle Book and Criminal maybe.
Mark started the con with Peter Davison, who literally had the first panel! Karma in killing off companions. Sylvester McCoy did his panel from the floor, theater-in-the-round style! Hobbit/Lord of the Rings stories. Matt Smith and Alex Kingston! Matt tells a dirty joke.
And more! Have a listen!
We talk about leaf blowers, a possible new companion for The Doctor, and a retrospective on Karen Gillans post-Who career.
Karen Gillan. Guardians of the Galaxy. Selfie. Why no love for John Cho? Star Trek. In a Valley of Violence.
New companions? Genders. Non-gendered? A person of color. A Muslim. Britain First. Just something different. Dont do it to be political, but the casting will be political in its implications.
We talk about the Ghostbusters trailer, Maisie Williams news, David Tennants post-Who career
Maisie Williams not coming back. Doctor Hugh? We all agree about something!
David Tennant The Decoy Bride. Voice-over and cartoon work. The Clone Wars. Broadchurch. AKA Jessica Jones. The Politicians Wife.
Bryan Fuller is taking over Star Trek. We finally talk about it. Mark doesnt like him because Voyager. Andy and Melissa love him because Pushing Daisies and Hannibal. The CBS streaming app.
Ghostbusters trailer. Sexism. Tokenism. Zoe Saldana. Nina Simone and blackface. White people all look the same. Pale Mexicans. Prioritizing our outrage.
Were joined by Andy’s sister Kate to discuss Christopher Eccleston, The Beatles, Amazon Prime, and Deadpool. We had barbecue with The Doctor!!!
Christopher Eccleston Heroes. GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra. Thor: The Dark World. Lennon Naked. More Beatles talk.
Deadpool Its a parody, not a real comic book movie. Van Wilder. Can Deadpool cross over to other movies? James Marsters vs James Marsden. Frat boy humor. TJ Miller. Shes Out of My League.
Everyones homework is to watch The Decoy Bride. And wear purple.
Doctor Who comes back to streaming thanks to Amazon Prime. Why Prime is worth it. Cosplay supplies. Scotch tape.
