Episode 92: Doctor Who‘s “Dark Water” Like WHAAA? (And Also There Was An Episode With Trees)

blog,podcast 6 November 2014 0 Comments


Oh, man! I mean, that last episode of “Doctor Who,” right? RIGHT? RIIIIIIIIIIIIGHT??? That was basically Liz and Rudy’s reaction to “Dark Water,” except a little more verbose. (They also do talk about the episode prior, “In the Night of the Forest,” but what’s more exciting — Cybermen or trees? You know the answer.)

Like any great penultimate episode of “Doctor Who,” Liz and Rudy were left with a lot of questions. What exactly is behind this evil plan of Michelle Gomez’s? How much did Rudy love the episode’s big reveals? And why doesn’t Liz find Cybermen particularly scary?

Your thoughts on these matters — they complete us. And there are so many different ways for you to share them! Just look: Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Google Plus or email! So many different ways for you to comment, and so many different ways for us to thank you for listening. :)

Episode 91: It’s A Four Episode “Doctor Who” Mega-Catchup!

podcast 24 October 2014 0 Comments


Friends, we owe you an apology. For WEEKS now, “Doctor Who” has been airing, and we have not been telling you what we think of it! We’re the worst! But hopefully, this makes up for that?

That’s right, Liz and Rudy are CATCHING UP on the last FOUR episodes of their favorite time-and-space-traveling adventure. How hot was that backflip in “The Caretaker”? Did “Kill the Moon” captivate? Were we transported by “Mummy on the Orient Express”? Was “Flatline” a buzzkill? Seriously, how hot was that backflip in “The Caretaker”?

We’re here to tell you all of that, share your recent comments, and ask for more! Seriously, tell us what you think via Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Google Plus or email! Because we love you. Almost as much as we love backflips.

And then find out what you thought! (Or, you know, what we thought about what you thought!) This show lives or dies on your comments, so help us stay alive via Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Google Plus or email! Thank you for commenting, and thank you, on an equal level, for listening.

blog,podcast 19 September 2014 1 Comment


Hey friends! CHECK IT. This week, which includes a check-in on the final compilations of the Doctor Who novellas, Liz and Rudy catch up on the last two episodes of Doctor Who! What did they enjoy about Robin Hood’s modern-ish adventures? What did they think of Clara’s involvement? Were both Liz and Rudy given opportunity to attempt Alan Rickman impressions? The answer to that last question is yes, but you KNOW you wanna know the answer!

And also, we talk about “Listen” — because, man, geez. We have thoughts about “Listen.” Everyone does. Everyone should. It’s too interesting not to talk about! As you did, via Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Google Plus or email. Keep it up, please and thank you! It keeps us from doing things like traveling into your past and scarring you for life. Not that we would ever do that…

Doctor Who: Series 8: Episode 1


Did you miss us? We missed you! And we also missed Doctor Who! Which is why Liz and Rudy have returned to this humble podcast to evaluate our new Doctor and his latest adventure!

In today’s episode (please excuse a few seconds of static), explaining where they’ve been and catching up on some basic news (some of it more adult than the rest), it’s time to discuss Peter Capaldi rampaging through Victorian London after a dinosaur and some very familiar-looking robots.

What do you think of all this? Tell us! As always, we’re on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Google Plus or email! Hope you’ve been well, the last few months, and looking forward to a full season of fun!

Episode 86: A Timey Wimey All-Of-2013 Round-Table!

podcast 24 March 2014 0 Comments



Friends, apologies for the long delay in posting this — we had technical issues, life issues and Doctor Who issues! Well, the first two were the reasons we were held up in making this podcast available to you. The third? That’s what brings this episode onto the internets!

Liz and Rudy are joined by round-table regulars Barrett, Beth, Megan and Jay to break down the year of Doctor Who in 2013. Who actively dislikes Clara? Who is REALLY alarmingly mad at the Christmas special? Who still prefers Moffat over Davies? How much wine did we drink? Well, you will find out by listening!

And we promise that soon, we will have a new episode catching you up with all the recent time travel news. We will also definitely be back full-time when Peter Capaldi is back on our screens!

Tragically, we have no clue when that happens, but in the meantime we are still very excited to hear what you’re thinking! So tell us! We’re on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Google Plus or email! And we love you for listening.

Episode 85: Doctor Who‘s “The Time of the Doctor”

podcast 2 January 2014 0 Comments



Oh, Matt Smith, we hardly knew ye. Actually, that’s a lie. We know you pretty well! Point is, after quickly discussing a couple of new trailers, Liz and Rudy dig into the 11th Doctor’s swan song, and what we might consider to be part three of the “of the Doctor” trilogy!

Were Liz and Rudy pleased by the way “The Time of the Doctor” wrapped up key elements of the 11th Doctor’s storyline? Did they share the general underwhelment of the collective internet? How bad, exactly, was that old age makeup? We discuss all of that and more!

Then we discuss what you thought! Because we love to hear what you think! Tell us more via Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Google Plus or email! And as always, thanks for listening.

podcast 25 November 2013 0 Comments



You guys, can you BELIEVE IT? It finally happened! “The Day of the Doctor”! David Tennant! John Hurt! Billie Piper! And so much other stuff!

This episode, we sit down with EVERYTHING Doctor Who. EVERYTHING. Neil Gaiman’s 11th Doctor novella Nothing O’Clock! The surprising prequel episode “The Night of the Doctor”! The SUPER-DELIGHTFUL Peter Davison-written/directed cameo fest “The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot”! Google’s 8-bit tribute to the show’s anniversary!

And that’s all before we get to the actual damn episode! Did “The Day of the Doctor” thrill Liz and Rudy with its mix of classic Who references and new Who adventure? Did its depiction of the Time War satisfy? How great was it to see (most of) our old friends again?

Oh, and what did you guys think? Tell us Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Google Plus or email! And thanks for listening. Happy Who Day!

Note: You’re not bad at counting, we had some technical issues with Episode 83, and the 50th Anniversary comes… Well, only once. Expect our discussion of time travel movies like “About Time” and “Free Birds” soon!

Episode 82: The 6th and 7th Doctors, Plus Special Guest Alan Kistler!

blog 11 November 2013 2 Comments



Folks, this is the episode that will make you realize that Liz and Rudy? They don’t know nearly as much about Doctor Who as you might think. That’s because they’re joined by a VERY special guest, Alan Kistler, who is a totally legit Who scholar!

Alan literally wrote the book on Doctor Who‘s complex 50-year history, and he totally schools us all on some FASCINATING facts about the show’s development and production. (You will not BELIEVE some of the stuff he reveals about the many attempts to bring the Doctor to the U.S.)

Along the way, Liz and Rudy basically finish up their quest through the classic Doctors, having dug into Colin Baker’s weirdly ahead-of-its-time “The Caves of Androzani” and Sylvester McCoy’s charming relationship with Ace in “The Curse of Fenric.” That’s right, they’re ready for the 50th Anniversary Special! (Maybe not emotionally, but in all other ways.)

As always, we love to hear what you think — so tell us, gosh darn it, via Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Google Plus or email! And also as always, thanks for listening.
