A post-episode discussion of Doctor Who that's bigger on the inside.

Doctor Who S12E10 review: “The Timeless Children”

“Doctor Who” wraps up a pretty successful season this week. But did the finale stick the landing? Has series canon been rewritten forever? Does the Master have a design department? Time for one final breakdown before the Flashcast goes into cold storage until the next holiday special.

Doctor Who S12E9 review: “Ascension of the Cybermen”

When this season’s available as a binge watch you’ll forget this gap ever even happened. We’re here to discuss the first half of the “Doctor Who” season finale, which is a little like reviewing the first half of a book or movie. What will happen next week? We have endless theories and no hard evidence! Are these red herrings we see before us? Why is the Lone Cyberman so effective as a villain? Ko Sharmus isn’t a planet, he’s a person! Bring on Barack Stemis.

Doctor Who S12E8 review: “The Haunting of Villa Diodati”

Did “Doctor Who” create “Frankenstein”, or did “Frankenstein” create “Doctor Who”? It’s worth pondering as we discuss an episode in which Mary Shelley encounters some notable time travelers, Lord Byron is really into the Doctor, and Graham eats a spooky sandwich. Recorded live in Los Angeles at the Gallifrey One convention, nearly every “Doctor Who” podcaster watched this episode in a single room—and then fled to their own individual rooms to record episodes about it. This one is ours.

Doctor Who S12E7 review: “Can You Hear Me?”

This week Houman Sadri joins Jason to discuss angry gods, quick resolutions, animation, nightmare fuel, the realities of being a “Doctor Who” companion, and the importance of seeking help when you are struggling, all embedded inside a discussion of this week’s episode. Plus, we dive deep into conspiracy corner to talk further about the ramifications of “Prisoner of the Judoon” and how it hangs over every dramatic moment of this episode.

Doctor Who S12E6 review: “Praxeus”

This week Jason and guest Antony Johnston form two points of a globe-spanning triangle! But rather than solving an international mystery, we’ll just discuss the latest episode of “Doctor Who,” which trades last week’s momentous canon-altering events for a fun adventure romp that works pretty well. Is that one guy hiding under a boat somewhere? Where did that text message come from? Two middle-aged men stick up for Graham! Yaz gets to use her police skills! Ryan is an impressive adventurer who works out! We cover it all… in plastic.

Doctor Who S12E5 review: “Fugitive of the Judoon”

The Judoon return! And that’s what everyone will be talking about when they finish this episode. Or… maybe not. Jason needs to bring in both of our Lazy Doctor Who podcasters to help him spin conspiracy theories and try to come to grips with all the surprises in this episode. Doctor’s orders: Do not listen to this podcast before watching the episode!

Doctor Who S12E4 review: “Nikola Tesla’s Night of Terror”

Jason is flitting about the universe, so Erika takes over the flashcast and brings in fellow Verity! cohost Liz to discuss historical figures from a country neither of them lives in. Also scavenger aliens, electricity, and beloved actors and their accents.

Erika Ensign with Lizbeth Myles


Doctor Who S12E3 review: “Orphan 55”

It’s a base, er, resort under siege! And who better to discuss it than Erika Ensign of Verity and Lazy Doctor Who? Erika finds a lot to like about this episode! Jason… is also present! Join us, won’t you?

Doctor Who S12E2 review: “Spyfall, Part 2”

Lizbeth Myles joins Jason to discuss the second part of this season’s “Doctor Who” premiere. We discuss the delights of Sacha Dhawan’s performance, the Doctor’s acquisition of a historical girl gang, and an enormous amount of classic series references. Then we ponder the proper way to portray Gallifrey in “Doctor Who” and our confidence in this season’s apparent story arc.

Doctor Who S12E1 review: “Spyfall, Part 1”

One year later, Doctor Who is back, and it’s got a few surprises up its tuxedoed sleeve. We’re reintroduced to our returning characters! Jason does some California fact checking. And can we judge “Doctor Who” season premieres and holiday specials by the same standards as the rest of their seasons? James Thomson joins Jason to note a few references to James Bond movies! (Okay, it’s more than a few.)

Doctor Who 2019 New Year’s Day Review: “Resolution”
