We invite you to go halfsies with us as we go scene by scene and try to make some sense out of the thirty second trailer for “The Time of the Doctor.” As usual there are a few tangents — we mention things like Fringe and Harry Potter – but then again they might prove to not be so tagenty after all. I mean look at that picture, the Doctor is wearing a robe and there are magical sparks everywhere! We’ve held our record now for being eighty percent wrong, but will we break it this year? Tune in and find out!
For your seasonal listening pleasure we used “Merry Xmas Everyone” by Slade.
Get ready for some fun, it’s Doctor number — oh, who am I kidding. An Adventure in Space and Time is an emotional roller coaster: fun for a bit, then a harrowing tunnel of sadness before it’s over and demands you exit to the right. Sure, we learned about the creation of our beloved show, meeting the fantastic people who made it happen. We were even forced to raise William Hartnell’s Standardized Doctoring Assessment from “needs improvement” to “exceeds expectations.” But did Mark Gatiss need to completely devastate us along the way?
For a less heart-wrenching but nonetheless quality tribute to the First Doctor, WhoTube it up with this video from Kensta93: http://youtu.be/BJsG3ErR5dQ
This week we take a break from the 50th festivities to bring you an episode out of its time (we recorded it in the past and make occasional dated comments about the 50th happening soon). Listen as Matt is joined by podcasters Kate and Heather with their take on David Tennant, ’cause there’s always more to talk about with this gentleman, ALWAYS MORE!
The break songs in this episode are “Turn To Stone” by ELO, and “Alien 8″ by Lagwagon.
For your WhoTube viewing pleasure check out this sensational tribute loaded with feels called “Doctor Who David Tennant (It Was My Way)” by Seduff.
At the Arrow of Time, we enjoy probing into deep important topics, such as whether or not the comedy joke show known as “The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot” is really a satirical sad sack of smelly socks. Or, if we have multiple Doctors, would they be called Doctor Whos or Doctors Who? Join us as we delve into that and much more!
For our WhoTube, we have “Holding Out for a Hero (a Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart fanvid)” from Calapine, and the Brigadier is Ace. But probably not the Ace you were expecting. http://youtu.be/KhbeaRvLX7c
This week we delve into Doc number twelve! Wait. No. Hold on, I’ve got this. This week’s pretty nifty, it’s Doctor Who year fifty! Whether at home or in theaters, in two dimensions or in three, you’re in for a treat with the anniversary special no matter who your favorite Doctor is, as long as it’s Matt Smith or David Tennant. All told, “The Day of the Doctor” is just about as great as it can be considering the obvious exclusion of a certain fantastic actor. I speak, of course, of Bernard Cribbins. I mean, who dropped that ball on that one?
Like sands through the hourglass, these are the Tubes of our Who. Actually, just the one this week. LastWhovianTrailers brings us “50 Years in the TARDIS”: http://youtu.be/EfPuZe4gcXY
For this deluxe edition of The Arrow of Time and a Half, Joseph, Matt, Gabe, and Dave talk about “The Night of the Doctor,” the latest and super exciting prequel that came out, and why we are all singing joyous praises to Moffat for his mere 6 and a half minute minisode (that word is still irritating).
Music that was used in this episode for breaks and whatnot includes ”Television” and “If You Know Time” by Robyn Hitchcock, and ”The Warrior” by Patti Smyth.
Something that rhymes with eleven, it’s time for Doctor eleven! That’s right, with only a week to go until the 50th Anniversary we talk about Matt Smith for a surprisingly long time considering we’ve been podcasting about him for years now. Nevertheless, people grow and opinions change, so grab your quirky friend Geoff and enjoy this eleventieth and final ode to the Doctors (at least, for now)!
