Ace Doctor Who Podcast Episode #17: Revolution of the Daleks

Daleks at Number Ten

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!

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

Ace Doctor Who Podcast #7: Kerblam!

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?

Yes, that’s a Dalek in a Santa hat

Ace Doctor Who Podcast #6: Demons of the Punjab

“Love is a form of hope,  and like hope, love abides”.

James and Paul both think this one is a cracker: hear them eulogise over Demons of the Punjab, as the Doctor and the Scooby Gang head back to 1947 and the Partition of India, as we learn more about Yas’ family, and the bits of British history they don’t teach you at school.

Ace Doctor Who Podcast #5: The Tsuangra Conundrum

A shiny spaceship, a metal-gobbling alien called Pting, and assorted other glorious nonsense: we review The Tsuangra Conundrum, have a rant about future fashion, and pay tribute to a rather creative Who-related Halloween costume.

“Sylvester McCoy” as the Doctor and “Sophie Aldred” as Ace seen here on location near Arundel with the Cybermen. Thanks to @Yuki_Houdini for this disturbing image!

“Which Who was Here?” Introducing a catchily-titled new feature

Introducing an experimental new feature, in which James accidentally visits a filming location from a past Doctor Who episode, and he quizzes Paul on the episode in question. Which Who was here? Why was he here? Which episode was it? Was it a good episode? All this, and more, will be revealed in this week’s podcast…

Ace Doctor Who Podcast #4: Arachnids in the UK


Spiders! Brutalism! Sheffield! James and Paul review Arachnids in the UK, introduce a couple of ridiculous new features, and accidentally sing a 90s hit which is at best tangentially related to the episode.

Ace Doctor Who Podcast #3: Rosa


Paul and James review Rosa in the beautiful surrounds of London’s Royal Festival Hall.

The TARDIS sends our nascent Scooby Gang back to 1955 Alabama, where we meet Rosa Parkes, Martin Luther King, a lot of sweaty-faced racists, and what can only be described as a member of the alt-right, but from the future.

Ace Doctor Who Podcast #2: The Ghost Monument


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.
