“Once you’ve destroyed the planet, what stories are there left to tell?”

The boys discuss Orphan 55, cheap package holidays, the value of allegory, and the difficulty of exploring the inner worlds of guest characters when you also have to give three different companions something to do.

Ace Doctor Who Podcast Episode #12 – review of Spyfall parts 1 & 2

We’re back! Did you miss us? Paul and James got together to talk about the opening two episodes of Series 12 (or, if you’re old grumps like us, Series 36), with Jody Whittaker returning as The Doctor and Chris Chibnall – sigh – returning as showrunner.

Along the way we talk about Britbox, the new streaming service that allows us to watch more Classic Who than we possibly even deserve, discuss the value of pastiche, and spill beer on our socks. Also one of us recites a song we might have written about Lenny Henry being a bomb.

Please tell us what you think! We love feedback. We’re on Twitter and you can also email us now I’ve remembered how to log in to our email, which is acedoctorwhopodcast at gmail dot com.

Ace Doctor Who Podcast #11: Resolution

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.

We want to hear your views on the first Whittaker / Chibnall series as a whole: get in touch via email or on Twitter and we’ll record a special review episode in the near future.

Thanks to everyone who has listened to our podcast since our regeneration. You’re lovely.

P.S. In case you can’t make out all the lyrics to James’ We Really Like The Doctor song, here they are:

We Really Like The Doctor (with apologies to Billy Joel)

Thirteenth doctor, Sheffield train, crashes and regenerates
Ryan rides his bike and fails: dyspraxia

Tim Shaw, Grace falls, they float in space, Ghost Monument
Art Malik, Sand tactic, Tardis is found

Rosa Parks, Luther King, Cranzo future racist kid
Quantum leap, bus fun, Graham is complicit

Brutalism, Yas’ fam, Spiders in Park Hill
Donald Trump, shoot to kill, let them all starve

We really like the Doctor
Cos She’s always gurning while the kids are learning yeah
We really like the Doctor
But when Chibnall writes it then we have to fight it yeah

Pting is like the adipose, a baby called Avacado

Spaceships, Demons, Yas in the Punjab
Partition, Empire, love will save us all

Amazon in Kerblam, Graham with a mop in hand
Alan Cumming, King James, trapped inside a tree

Scandi-noir, fjord kid, the actor Kevin Eldon
Battle of Ranskoor, Graham wants to kill some more

Tim Shaw – shot in the leg – shoot him in the head instead
Underwhelming finale – what else is there to say

We really like the Doctor
Cos She’s always gurning while the kids are learning yeah
We really like the Doctor
But when Chibnall writes it then we have to fight it yeah

No Cyberwoman next season please
