Longtime Doctor Who podcaster Chip Sudderth (Two-minute Time Lord) and essayist-podcaster Alyssa Franke (WhovianFeminism on Tumblr and Twitter) join forces for Doctor Who-related interviews, reviews and all the news that marked This Week in Time Travel.

Red White (and Orange and Yellow and Blue) and Who

Steven Warren Hill drops by to talk about his long-awaited opus about Doctor Who in America, Red, White and Who. Graeme Burk and Liz Myles take up the age-old question: were the candy-colored New Daleks in Series 5…rubbish? We say goodbye to Deborah Watling, and we look back at the Doctor Who panel at SDCC.

Many, Many Feels

The intensity did not let up from last week’s controversial episode! Alyssa and Chip are joined once more by Rachel as we explore the ending of The Two Masters’ stories, the Twelfth Doctor’s heroic arc, the First Doctor’s re-debut, and most especially the resolution of Bill’s story (and whether in fact she was given one). We had a lot to say…

I Want to Bill-eve

Chip, Alyssa, and Rachel are together in-person to discuss one of the most intense episodes to date! Can they handle the feels, or will they need to enter the conversion theater…?

Celtic Rock

She last wrote for Doctor Who with 1989’s “Survival.” Now Rona Munro returns to Doctor Who with “The Eaters of Light”; was it to our taste? Plus we talk to Lisa Bowerman, who starred in Munro’s previous outing, and indulge in a little Chris Chibnall Kremlinology.

The Pretzel Guns of Mars

Chip couldn’t tell who had the higher-pitched voice: the returning-after-decades hexapod Alpha Centauri, or Alyssa after she realized that it was indeed an Alpha cameo! We found plenty more to talk about, though, in Mark Gatiss’s possible swan song from Doctor Who: why we frequently look at Doctor Who through political lenses, whether or not Nardole is a tin dog, and how much we appreciate our fandom community. Recorded live and in person during DC Pride 2017!

Mom Fixes Everything

Beware fake news! Chip and Alyssa peel back the propaganda and take a close look at “The Lie of the Land.” Plus: Alyssa reflects on Bill Potts at the beginning of Pride Month.

At the End of the World as We Know It

A 5,000-year-old pyramid drops into existence in a single day as a harbinger of apocalypse. We talk about this part-two-of-three and whether it addresses the questions about “consent” it raises. Also in this feature-length podcast: We talk to Sarah Dollard, writer of this season’s “Thin Ice,” and Reality Bomb’s Shannon Dohar and Graeme Burk explore the Received Fan Wisdom about the Second Doctor!

The Sims 4: Murderous Invasion Stuff

Extremis Veritas Expelliarmus! Particle physicists and priests alike are shocked into submission when they learn the truth of the world. Did Chip and Alyssa buy this departure from the “meat and potatoes” Doctor Who we had in the previous five episodes? Plus, Chip lies on the couch rather than behind the sofa as he and Alyssa talk about fandom disagreements and matters of taste in tight-knit fan communities.

We Didn’t See That Coming

Feeling short of breath? Chip and Alyssa squee over Rose and Ten coming to Big Finish and review Jamie Mathieson’s “Oxygen.” Then, Chip is joined by our friends Kyle and Erik from Doctor Who: The Writers’ Room to talk about the scripts of Series 10!
