Tune in to the last episode of Series Two as we hear Kellie and Kevin discussing all the feels, the 3D glasses, the alternate universes, and Kevin’s subconscious obsession with “a leather room.” Find out what that’s all about in this new episode.
In this first part of a two-parter, this is a solo podcast with Kevin, who talks about Torchwood, a giant hovering sphere, and The Doctor taking jabs at Jackie just for the pleasure of it. Listen in and follow along.
In a reverse of our last episode, our review of “Fear Her” is a veritable love fest for a quality Doctor Who episode. The Doctor and Rose go to future 2012 to see the London 2012 Olympics. But children are disappearing, and our heroes investigate. A fun episode that gets far too much criticism than it deserves. Enjoy.
In this podcast episode, Kellie and Kevin review Love and Monsters, an episode that people either love or hate. This is a very passionate podcast, as one of the co-hosts really, really didn’t like it. Find out which one hated the episode and tune in for some fun, spirited chat.
This week is a short rant due to scheduling. Kevin takes you through a bit of what he thinks of the podcast so far, he explains that he doesn’t hate Doctor Who despite many reviews bagging on characters and plots, but more importantly, he talks about Steven Moffat, the current Doctor Who show-runner and whether or not he deserves the scorn so often thrown his way. You may agree or disagree, but this is unadulterated Kevin without an ounce of filter. (Okay. We have a swear filter on him because if we didn’t, this podcast would be very naughty. lol)
Kellie and Kevin rip into the Part Two episode,”The Satan Pit,” and they offer up their fun picks for who they would like to see play The Doctor in the future. Kellie also reads off a list of the odd-on favorites for the role. See if you agree with our suggestions. Enjoy!
Black Holes, and Demons, and Oods. OH MY! Check out Part One of this two-parter where The Doctor and Rose get stranded on a rocky planet that is orbiting ridiculously close to a black hole. Kellie and Kevin go thru an episode whose theme has the subtlety of a giant mallet to the head. And learn about the mysterious and strange aliens called the Ood.
Kellie and Kevin talk about Pokemon Go a bit before really diving into this episode set in 1953 London. Does RTD hate Rose? Did the screenwriters make The Doctor into the doofus this episode? Why did they make the father so one-dimensional? And the main question; How does one breathe without a face? These and other topics discussed in lavish detail on this week’s review.
The finale of a two-parter involving cybermen, mass mind-control, a version of Mickey that is finally heroic, Barty Crouch, (hint to you Harry Potter fans,) and Rose… What can we say about Rose other than she’s Rose?
This one was really fun to record, as it is big story of planetary invasion, but it has some of the more sad and depressing moments of the show so far. But we plow through it all. Relive all of the majesty (or misery, depending on your tastes,) of… The Age of Steel!
Hey! It’s our 21st episode, so we’re old enough to drink! Raise a glass in the Whovian spirit as Kellie and Kevin review Part One of the reboot’s introduction to the classic Doctor Who villains, the Cybermen.
They both talk about British shows they like in between the reviews, so strap in, make sure your seats and tray tables are in the upright position, because we are jumping the time vortex to dimensions UNKNOWN.
And don’t forget next week’s episode, Part Two of the story, “Age of Steel.”
“The Girl in the Fireplace” is quite literally a romp through time and space. Listen to Kellie and Kevin discuss this fan-favorite episode where we are introduced to a very famous figure in French history. There’s romance, there’s silliness, and there’s Mickey fore-shadowing events to come with his ineptitude. Enjoy, Whovians!
Kellie and Kevin review “School Reunion,” which features the return of Classic Who characters, Sarah Jane Smith and K9. Kellie gushes over Anthony Stewart Head’s role as a headmaster, and Kevin reminisces about watching Tom Baker with Elisabeth Sladen as “Sarah Jane.” It’s a fun look back at a popular companion in a new setting. And what is up with that yellow ooze?
This is a shorter, non-review episode made because Kellie was not with us this week. We pre-recorded her at the beginning and end, and in the middle, “future” Kevin rants and raves about various parts of fandoms that try his patience a bit, and he talks a bit about Doctor Who news.
On this Series Two episode, we dive straight into the horror of werewolves on Doctor Who with “Tooth and Claw.” Kellie and Kevin pepper this episode with lots of trivia about the making of this episode as well as some tidbits about a few of the actors in this one. Thanks for listening, and please don’t forget to Like our Facebook page.
Welcome to Wekk Whovians’ premiere episode review of Series Two’s “New Earth.” This is the first series of new lead actor, David Tennant, who arguably becomes the Whoniverse’s most popular Doctor. Listen as Kellie and Kevin decipher the conundrum of the cat-nuns, the return of a recent foe, the total redemption of Rose as a character, and some interesting and divergent commentary.
The Doctor has a new face, he hasn’t finished cooking yet, and evil robot Santas want to kill him in his jammies. Kellie and Kevin go over the first Xmas Special of the Doctor Who reboot, and while they are at it, they discuss what they know (or don’t know) about British politics. (Any corrections should be mentioned in the comments section of our Wekk Whovians Facebook site, sent to our Twitter account, @WekkWhovians, or sent to our email, firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you, and go easy on us poor Americans. We try.)
Kellie, Kevin, and our special guest from the Dumbbells & Dragons Podcast, Kenny Rotter, gather to review Series One of the Doctor Who reboot. It’s a funny and opinionated episode, and it is worth your time to sit back and enjoy the summation of Series One.
Note: The audio levels were giving me (Kevin) a bit of trouble, but I did my best to level everything out. Just be forewarned that some of the show has patchy volume, but everything can be heard. If you have any questions or concerns, leave a comment on the website, WekkPodcast.com.
Kellie and Kevin wrap up Series One with the rousing excitement of “The Parting of the Ways,” where there are Daleks, and battles, and deaths… OH MY! Find out what Bad Wolf really means, how this is Rose’s greatest moment so far on the show, and how Barcelona figures into the episode.
1. Yes, we were oh so very ignorant of the Dalek Emperor’s origins, dear Whovians. The Dalek Emperor debuted on TV in the 1966 2nd Doctor story, “The Evil of the Daleks,” but its true debut was in 1964 on a series of collectible cards printed with packs of “sweet cigarettes” by the Cadet Sweets confectionary company. The two stories in the 50 card set were called “Doctor Who and the Daleks.” Trivia Achievement Earned!
2. David Tennant is listed as “Doctor Who” in the end credits, and this is the first and last time Tennant is listed that way in the show. In every subsequent episode, Tennant is listed as “The Doctor,” as the role had been billed for the last decade or so of the classic series.
Kellie and Kevin review the penultimate episode of Series One, “Bad Wolf,” which is Part One of a two-part finale that they liked very much. The episode features British TV shows you may have heard of, Kevin gets a bit OCD on the details, as always, and the tension is cranked up as they head toward the finale of the Ninth Doctor. Enjoy.
Kellie and Kevin review “Boom Town,” where they revisit a villain from the recent past, they discuss Kellie’s knowledge (and Kevin’s lack of knowledge) of Cardiff and the show’s infamous “Cardiff Rift,” and finally, Kevin proves that he wouldn’t know an eggplant if it smacked him in the face. There are laughs galore on a quite enjoyable Wekk Whovians episode.
Kellie and Kevin tackle Part Two of the two-parter episode where The Doctor, Rose,and Captain Jack must solve the mystery of the gas-masked people in 1940 England during The Blitz. Find out who our Wekksters think is the big jerk of the episode, and who is utterly amazing.
Kellie and Kevin review Part One of the epic two-parter that introduces us to the charming and mysterious Captain Jack Harkness, and possibly the scariest storyline of the Eccleston era. We get a creepy gas-masked child, creepy gas-masked adults, we see London during The Blitz, and it’s probably the first Wekk Whovian episode review where we don’t really have anything jokey to say about the plot. We loved it, and we hope you love this revisit to the “onion-peeling” of Captain Jack Harkness. (There are many layers, but we only peeled away two.)
Kevin begins to refer to The Blitz as being in 1940, but he corrects himself. It actually occurred between Sept 1940 to May 1941.
Yes, after correcting himself, Kevin does start to say Dr. Constantine’s name wrong again.
Finally, the “U-Boat Captain” reference that Kellie mentioned comes when Jack refers to Rose as “flag girl,” due to her Union Jack t-shirt, and Jack refers to The Doctor’s clothing as the style of a “U-Boat Captain.” He’s mocking their lack of ability to blend in with the local environment.
Kellie and Kevin delve into the magical world of 1987… chock full of big hair, Miami Vice suits, and Rose Tyler’s mistakes. This episode should actually be renamed “It’s Rose’s Fault,” as she nearly destroys the Earth. Listen to find out if Rose redeems herself and how we feel about cell phone technology in the 1980s.
In this discussion, Kellie and Kevin dissect “The Long Game,” with special guest star (who wasn’t widely known in America yet,) Simon Pegg, who plays a powerful man with a powerful secret. Does Rose finally impress The Doctor? What’s that thing stuck to the ceiling? Is Adam just a curious, or is he an opportunist? These questions and nore are answered on this week’s episode.
Kellie and Kevin have more laughs yet as they discuss the 2005 reboot’s introduction of Doctor Who’s most infamous villain, the Dalek. Listen as Kevin read parts of the dialogue and approximates his best Dalek impersonation. Parts of this episode should really be titled “Wekk Whovian Radio Theater.” Enjoy.
Kellie and Kevin discuss Part Two of the Slitheen Invasion of London in this entertaining episode. Listen as they name the actors who have played The Doctor over the years on TV (and on film.) Also, they wanted to throw a little love toward the Film Editor of this episode, Mike Jones, for making Kevin’s heart race even when he knew the good guys were safe. Thanks, Mike. You did a great job.
Kellie and Kevin review Series One Episode 04, “Aliens of London,” Part One of a two-parter where London receives an unexpected guest; a spaceship crashed into the River Thames. We are still waiting for Jackie and Mickey to redeem themselves as characters early on, and we are introduced to one of Kellie’s favorite characters of the reboot so far: Harriet Jones.
On this episode of Wekk Whovians, Kellie and Kevin explore the far reaches of time as our heroes, The Doctor and Rose, visit a space platform where a diabolical scheme threatens to kill all on board. Find out who claims to be the last human alive. What is the real name of that blue-faced plumber? And does a cellphone work if no cell towers exist? Loads of jiggery-pokery to be found here.
Kellie and Kevin review the opening episode of the 2005 reboot of “Doctor Who.” Hear their take on the new Doctor, the new companion, and hear them try to figure out why anyone in their right mind would trust this strange man in the leather jacket.
Kevin and Kellie team up for a new weekly show about the British sci-fi TV show, Doctor Who. Every week, they will dissect one episode of Doctor Who, starting with the 2005 reboot, starring Christopher Eccleston as The Doctor. New fans and long-time Whovians alike will enjoy this entertaining journey back to the beginning of the resurgence in Doctor Who popularity.
In this episode, Kevin and Kellie discuss how they became fans of the show, their favorite characters and villains, and they give a preview of what’s to come.
