We’re back, to discuss the New Year’s Day episode starring Jodi Whittaker as the Doctor and Chris Noth as Sir Kier Starmer. Paul and James discuss Captain Jack, the fam, creeping neo-fascism, and whether trying to become a writer yourself makes you less harsh on Chris Chibnall.
PI’m We are happy to be back after our latest hiatus. I have photoshopped my new head onto our cover art to celebrate. You can find all our old episodes here on the website, and see us on Twitter @acedrwho. Happy New Year everyone!
Happy New Year! Paul and James chat Resolution [of the Daleks], UNIT vs. Brexit, disagree slightly on the Ryan ‘n’ Aaron cafe scene, and ponder whether this was the best seasonal Doctor Who special yet.
Tim Shaw (sic) returns, the Ux spend thousands of years worshipping a false God, and Graham has a Kelly / Nelly style Dilemma. Plus, Paul gets a special card and James writes a song about the thirteenth doctor’s first season, as you do.
Fear, superstition, and alien mud monsters trapped under Pendle Hill: Paul and James review The Witchfinders, hear from a listener in a far-off land, and explain why Alan Cumming was probably a better choice for the role of King James than Jim Davidson.
James and Paul review Doctor Who Season 37, episode seven: Kerblam!
Poor Ryan heads into space only to find a massive warehouse very similar to the one he worked in on earth. Corporate satire with a twist: is it now easier to imagine the end of the world than the end of capitalism?
Crashing spaceships, Moomin Beans and Art Malik in a tent for some reason: James and Paul weigh up the second Thirteenth Doctor adventure, The Ghost Monument, where we see Graham in some natty sunglasses, Yas not given an awful lot to do, and the joys of seeing a new TARDIS interior for the first time.
Ahead of the impending upload of Podcast #2, in which we review The Ghost Monument, James goes slightly mad waiting for Paul to arrive at the station, and comes up with the idea of a serial set entirely on the DLR. Well, it’d still be better than Time-Flight…
