Whovians Tish and Juliana, and Newhovian Linda, started The Doctor’s Companions: A Doctor Who Rewatch Podcast in early 2015. Tish and Juliana delighted in analyzing their favorite show while introducing Linda to the amazing worlds and characters of Doctor Who. Though Linda has retired, Tish and Juliana continue to dissect all of time and space with some visits to Classic Who.
Tish and Juliana talk about Season 10, Episode 3 “Thin Ice” and Episode 4 “Knock Knock”. We find out that Regency England was a bit more black than in the movies and people made of wood live forever if you make friends with the alien cockroaches in your house.
Tish and Juliana talk about Season 10, Episode 1 “The Pilot” and Episode 2 “Smile”. While we are sad to continue the podcast without Linda, we are happy to welcome our new mic. You're welcome to your earholes. We get to know our new favorite companion, Bill, and discuss emojis, robots, and crushes.
Tish, Juliana, and Linda talk about the Classic Who Second Doctor story "The Tomb of the Cybermen". We cover Cybermen, the Second Doctor' new personality, racism, 60's TV structure, special effects, companions, kilts, and the death count. Oh, and it's Linda's last episode! Waaaah! :(
Tish, Juliana, and Linda talk about the Christmas specials “The Husbands of River Song” and “The Return of Doctor Mysterio”. Remember this dark time of Doctor Who hiatus? And this is all we got for two years... A lackluster goodbye to one of the greatest characters the show ever had and a too boring to even talk about generic superhero story.
Tish, Juliana, and Linda talk about Season 9, Episode 11 “Heaven Sent” and Episode 12 “Hell Bent”. We talk about the childhood nightmares of our confession dials, the Hybrid, Clara and Me's eternal lives, and how much everyone hates Timelords.
Tish, Juliana, and Linda talk about Season 9, Episode 9 “Sleep No More” and Episode 10 “Face the Raven”. We consider how we would spend our time if we had more of it (Morpheus) or less of it (Chronolock).
Tish, Juliana, and Linda talk about Season 9, Episode 7 “The Zygon Invasion” and Episode 8 “The Zygon Inversion”. We discuss the most effective options for a chance to Zygon shapeshift someone for a day, Kate Muthafuckin Stewart, hot Clara/Bonnie, Zygon children, war, tough decisions, and of course- truth and consequences.
Tish, Juliana, and Linda talk about Season 9, Episode 5 “The Girl Who Died” and Episode 6 “The Woman Who Lived”. We talk about vikings, mishearing British accents, the strength of electric eels, memory capacity, firebreathing lions, and more of Clara's reckless behavior.
We're excited about Doctor's new outfit, wish we could have seen Atlantis, think Clara needs a therapist, think people who beleive the Earth is flat are stupid, and try to figure out some paradoxes.
Tish, Juliana, and Linda talk about Season 9, Episode 1 “The Magician's Apprentice” and Episode 2 “The Witch's Familiar”. We consider why Missy thinks she is the Doctor's best friend, the Doctor's mercy, and Dalek sewage.
Tish, Juliana, and Linda talk about the Christmas Special “Last Christmas”. We're all just dreaming of Christmas, really...
Tish, Juliana, and Linda talk about Season 8, Episode 11 “Dark Water” and Episode 12 “Death in Heaven”. Join us as we contemplate the afterlife, our own mortality, and assure you that there is nothing after death, so don't worry.
Tish, Juliana, and Linda talk about Season 8, Episode 9 “Flatine” and Episode 10 “In the Forest of the Night”. We delight in the tiny TARDIS, discuss the 2nd and 4th dimensions, and determine the growing speed of an overnight forest.
We plan our own robberies, determine our levels of guilt, delight in the comedy of the Doctor v. Danny, and decide just how bad Clara was lying.
Tish, Juliana, and Linda talk about Season 8, Episode 3 “Robot of Sherwood” and Episode 4 “Listen”. Once again, Mark Gatiss brings us an underwhelming episode with annoying guest characters. And then Tish hides behind the couch talking about the creature under the blanket between bits of the most awkward date ever!
Tish, Juliana, and Linda talk about Season 8, Episode 1 “Deep Breath” and Episode 2 “Into the Dalek”. We discuss our new podcast set-up, the new Doctor, Danny Pink, Dalek biology, interspecies marriage, and whether the Doctor is a good man.
Tish, Juliana, and Linda talk about the very first episode of Doctor Who, “An Unearthly Child”. We get some perspective on our beloved show from diving into the very beginning. Find out what we think of the First Doctor, his granddaughter, and the TARDIS!
Tish, Juliana, and Linda talk about Season 7, the 50th Anniversary special “The Day of the Doctor” and the Christmas special “The Time of the Doctor”. We have a lot of questions about the Doctor's timeline, Gallifrey, Time Lord art history, and Queen Elizabeth I before we sob over the end of Eleven.
Tish, Juliana, and Linda talk about Season 7, Episode 13 “Nightmare in Silver” and Episode 14 “The Name of the Doctor”. The Cybermen are back and The Doctor is playing with himself. Clara fulfills her destiny of The Impossible Girl Who Saves the Doctor, and we meet the Doctor-Not-Doctor in the lead up to the 50th anniversary special.
Tish, Juliana, and Linda talk about Season 7, Episode 11 “Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS” and Episode 12 “The Crimson Horror”. We're planning our trip to Ottawa Comic Con before discussing all the amazing features of the TARDIS and deciding whether Mr. Sweet is disgusting or actually kind of cute.
