Episode 40 - Needing Another Class Act

In Focus: "Class" When it comes to "Doctor Who" spin-offs, Jessica and Phillip have discussed their love of "Torchwood" and "The Sarah Jane Adventures." But there's one spin-off (not counting "K-9 and Company") that begin and ended in just a few weeks - the 2016 series, "Class."

Episode 36 - You Can't Kill Your Past

Who was your...


Episode 35 - The Hamlet of Space

Ranking the Doctors Everyone has their list of favorite Doctors - but what if we tried to rank the different Time Lord incarnations using more objective factors? Jessica and Phillip draw up their ranking of the "numbered" Doctors using criteria such as strength of companions, good stories, and how excited you are to see a serial of that Doctor. Their two lists ending being similar but not the same. In their look into the TARDIS library, the couple revisit the Fourth Doctor story "City of...

Episode 32 - Post-Doc Pursuits

Companions' Post-TARDIS Lives We all have favorite and non-favorite companions. But, no matter what, we love to see them running around with the Doctor, having adventures in time and space.

Jessica and Phillip examine companions lives after "Doctor Who" says goodbye to them. In their look into the TARDIS library, the couple revisits The Sarah Jane...


Episode 31 - The Constant Companion

In Focus: TARDIS The most reconigizable part of "Doctor Who" is that time traveling, blue police box, the TARDIS. She's been a constant presence, but how much do we know about this Time Lord ship? Jessica and Phillip examine the TARDIS as an active character in the show, from how she reacts to companions to how she communicates with the Doctor. In their look into the TARDIS library, the couple co-hosts examine "Attack of the Cybermen," when the Sixth Doctor actually (kinda) fixes the TARDIS'...


Episode 30 - Snooze Button on Death

The Many Deaths of the Doctor (7-12) Endings can be sad, but they are also celebrations of the journey. All that to say - the Doctor has died many times, but each time "Doctor Who" ends, we get to say goodbye, look back on that particular Doctor's life and times, and ready ourselves for the next regeneration. Jessica and Phillip talk about the deaths of the Seventh thru Twelfth Doctors, trying to spot any patterns and what sets them apart. In their look into the TARDIS library, the couple...


Episode 29 - Big Red Button Times

They also look at how the Doctor's frequent interferences and the consequences might...


Episode 28 - Doctor Doctor Clara Who

Companions as The Doctor Jessica takes charge this episode by asking two questions: 1) What is the definition of a "Doctor Who" companion? and 2) Which companion would make the best Doctor? The Whovian debate about favorite Doctors and companions will last forever, but not many companions would be able to take the wheel ... er, switch? ... of the TARDIS. Jessica and Phillip take turns listing their nominations for which companion could fill the Time Lord's shoes. Do you agree with their...


Episode 27 - Really Loud Voice & A Plunger

Episode of the Daleks They are the epitome of Doctor Who villians - the Daleks. These pepper pots have captured Whovian imaginations for over 50 years - so what makes them so timeless? Jessica and Phillip take a close (but safe) look at the aliens, using the first feature film "Dr. Who and the Daleks" (1965). In their look into the TARDIS library, the couple revisits the Seventh Doctor's encounter with the Skaro aliens in "Remembrance of the Daleks." What's your favorite Dalek moment?


Episode 26 - Double Your Fun

"The Enemy of the World" Review There is always a celebration to be had in "Doctor Who" fandom when a so-called "lost story" is found, made complete, and restored.

Jessica and Phillip examine this interesting six-episode story that features Patrick Troughton playing two main roles -...


Episode 25 - Don't Call Them 'Borgs'

Episode of the Cybermen They are one of the Doctor's most-feared enemies: The Cybermen.

What makes them so interesting? Why do fans keep looking forward to their stories? Jessica and Phillip focus on the IDW graphic novel series "Assimilation2" which mixes up the worlds of "Doctor Who" and "Star Trek: The Next Generation."...
