We don’t like to boast, but when we predict the outcome of a Moffat plot months in advance, we need to say, “Told you so!” If Moffat stays on as showrunner, we may need to change our motto from 20% right to 21.5% right (because he keeps doing the same thing over and over, you see). Listen to our subdued revelry in correctness and critical critique of “The Witch’s Familiar.” Not for the faint-hearted.
It’s our eleventy-first birthday, but all the presents are for you, kind reader, as long as you can accept that the presents are in audio form and there’s only one of them. We also bring questions, such as this classic brain teaser: what if you told a BBC exec that they were looking at a man who would go on to tell the same story over and over again? Would they still hire him? No reason to ruminate, because they did, and that man is none other than Steven Q. Moffat! Now unwrap our latest podcast where we talk about (and reserve judgement on) “The Magician’s Apprentice” and test our knowledge with Doctor Who: The Official Quiz Book by Jacqueline Rayner. Spoilers: we didn’t get A levels, or whatever the English do for school these days.
One answer that’s never wrong is Matt’s choice for WhoTube, expertly filled this week with “The UNIT Files” by Legs Nose Robinson: http://youtu.be/JSG0A5i2bDg
With season 9 imminent, the rampant rumors and wild speculation are turning into confirmed spoilers and loads of trailers. As we like to do, we try to examine and reexamine every tidbit of information. It’s the way we show our excitement for the Doctor and Clara’s return. Also in this episode, Christopher Eccleston really wants to make us all sad.
Another trailer. Another trailer! I can’t keep up. This is clearly some scheme by the BBC to release the entire ninth season of Doctor Who before it even airs! Nevertheless, it would be remiss of us to let slip the chance to commit our unparalleled speculation skills to the public record via the medium of podcast.
That title just never gets old, does it? (This is a rhetorical question, please do not write in.) Comic-Con hit San Diego during what I will generously call “this week” and brought with it the usual assortment of pop culture icons, chief among those from our point of view being the cast of a certain British Broadcasting Corporation programme. But they didn’t show up empty handed! Well, literally yes, but not metaphorically. They had a Series 9 trailer with them, and we couldn’t wait to very slowly jump on the chance to pick it apart with our advanced looking-at-and-then-talking-about-things abilities. Never content to have a focused, concise episode, we also talk about the upcoming Lego Dimensions and its inclusion of the Who universe.
If you find that your WhoTubes haven’t been definitive enough lately, “The First Question” – The Definitive Edition from LastWhovianTrailers ought to ring your cloister bell: http://youtu.be/-wyF9s1_VvI
