The Doctor’s Companions Ep. 81: Genesis of the Daleks

September 11, 2020

Tish and Juliana talk about Classic Who; Season 12 (Fourth Doctor), Genesis of the Daleks. Often voted the best episode of Doctor Who, what better way for us to get to know the Fourth Doctor? Well, we get to know him a little but we also have to talk about Sarah Jane's 70s style, the quality of the sets, Davros's rubber gloves, and, of course, the Daleks. We do our best to recap the plot, but it's challenging to remember what's going on and who's who when all these white men look identical and so do their underground bunkers. Will someone just exterminate the Daleks already?!

Ep. 80: Torchwood Season One

August 10, 2020

Tish and Juliana talk about Torchwood, Season One. We’re back from our hiatus, ready to tackle the entire first season of Torchwood. Are we ready for all the sex and scandal of this adult show? Well, we’re not thrilled about Gwen cheating on sweet Rhys with pervy Owen, but we’re happy to see Toshiko get some and Ianto get over his girlfriend by getting under Jack. Bring on the aliens, sex, alien sex, and just plain ol' fucked up humans of Cardiff!

Ep. 78: Day of the Daleks [Third Doctor]

August 14, 2019

Tish and Juliana talk about "Day of the Daleks" from Classic Who, Season 9 Episodes 1-4 with the Third Doctor. We talk about how different television was back then, what we think of the Third Doctor and his companion, 22nd century fashion, and time travel paradoxes between tangents about overpopulation and power outages. Nice to meet you, Third Doctor, but who's excited to start rewatching Torchwood?!

Ep. 77: Don’t Die [S11E00]

July 26, 2019

Tish and Juliana talk about the Christmas special "Twice Upon a Time". Another episode with two Doctors, dead people's memories being stored, time travelling to grab people right before they die, Bill in another non-human form, a British war, Mark Gatiss, and a Dalek that isn't like other Daleks. And it's another Christmas special that has nothing to do with Christmas except that they shoved some in there at the end. It's almost like you needn't bother watching it at all, since it's all been done before. But then we announce what's next for the podcast!

Tish and Juliana presented the panel 'The Historic Women of Doctor Who' on May 11 at Ottawa ComicCon 2019.

Through all of time and space, The Doctor has met quite a few of Earth’s historically important women. How well does the show portray these real women and their real history? Let’s discuss how storytelling, sci-fi, and history came together for The Doctor to meet Queen Victoria, Rosa Parks, Agatha Christie, and more.

April 11, 2019

Tish and Juliana talk about Season 10, Episode 11 “World Enough and Time” and Episode 12 “The Doctor Falls”. We get into Bill's cruel and unfitting fate, Missy's self-sabotage, black hole time, and more about how unsuitable and pathetic an ending this is for Bill. Damnit, Moffat. Goodbye Season 10. Goodbye Bill. Goodbye Nardole. Goodbye Missy. Goodbye Twelve.

Ep. 74: You Weird Monosexuals [S10E09 & S10E10]

April 6, 2019

Tish and Juliana talk about Season 10, Episode 9 “Empress of Mars” and Episode 10 “The Eaters of Light”. We have fun with our, and your, ideas of what episodes we'd like to see with different Doctors. It's another bomb of an episode from Mark Gatiss, and then a much more interesting one from -gasp- a woman! We talk crow language, Romans, Celtics, time manipulation, monosexuality vs bisexuality, and the Doctor's unhealthy relationship with his definitely-more-than-a-friend Missy.
