This week, as a matter of convenience, we recorded “on location” at an exclusive little café in Summit County (ok, it was a Panera). We have some geek news, an update on the awesomeness to come with the Rubber City Rumpus and a bit of DC and Marvel news. Plus, Jessie just returned from a trip abroad where she toured the Doctor Who Experience in Cardiff, Wales, so she’s sharing details with us. Listen now! Continue reading
Jessie, part of Geek Watch One’s extended family, recently traveled across the pond and got the chance to visit The Doctor Who Experience in Cardiff, Wales. She provided us with some great photos to share with you! (Click to view a larger version of each.)
It’s issue 113 and we’re talking about the newly announced 13th Doctor for Doctor Who. For the first time ever, the Doctor is female – so what do we think about that? Plus we chat about the Doctor Who spin-off Class. And we have a bit of geek news and details about some of the announcements out of D23 Expo, Disney’s big convention last weekend. Listen now!

If you’re a fan of Doctor Who (aka a Whovian) or simply savvy in pop culture, you already know that the identity of the 13th Doctor has been revealed. (For those not into Doctor Who, the character is a Time Lord who regenerates instead of dying… you know what? Go watch Doctor Who!) It’s an exciting time for Whovians and there’s always love and hate over the choice. But this time around there’s even more being said because, for the first time in the show’s almost 55-year history, the Doctor will be female. Continue reading
Aside from maybe 4, the Eighth Doctor, Paul McGann, is my favorite regeneration of the Doctor. While he was not seen for long in the TV movie, his character has lived on in Big Finish’s audio dramas, proving that he should have been the first Doctor to return when the series was rebooted. Unfortunately, he did not come back to television (other than the short 50th anniversary clip), but along with the audio dramas, Titan Comics has published a volume of comics encompassing his short run in comic form as well.

Pretty sure I’ve mentioned a time or two that I’m a big fan of Doctor Who, otherwise known as a Whovian. I love time/space adventures and seeing just how the Doctor will manage to solve the latest problem and save himself (and, usually, the Earth or another planet/civilization to boot). So I was intrigued when I heard about the publication of Doctor Who: The American Adventures, a collection of stories about the 12th Doctor’s time in the US. Continue reading
Everyone has those go-to movies or television shows they turn on when not feeling well. You know the ones I mean – you’ve seen the movie more than a dozen times and know all the lines or you have the plot of every episode of the show memorized because you’ve seen it five, six, 18 times. For me, when lying on the sofa, wrapped in a blanket, sipping hot tea, half out of it from meds, I turn to one of two shows: Doctor Who or Supernatural. Continue reading
When I hear the name Captain Jack two people come to mind. The first is a pirate and owner of the Black Pearl. The second is a Time Agent, owner of a Vortex Manipulator, and part time companion to The Doctor. It is the latter that I write about today. Continue reading
I’ve always enjoyed time travel stories as well as ones involving travel to alternate worlds. Pretty sure I can blame this, at least in part, on reading the Narnia Chronicles as a kid and early exposure to Doctor Who (4 was my first). So it makes me happy that there are a number of movies, shows and books exploring this at the moment. Continue reading
A few months ago we discovered series 1 of Doctor Who Dark Journey, the #1 Internet fan audio drama. We started chatting with the folks at AM Audio Media, creators of Dark Journey, and they asked if we’d be interested in an exclusive release of an episode for series 2. Doctor Who meets Sherlock in 19th century England… of course we were interested!
So it’s with great pleasure, and after much anticipation, that we present the fifth episode in series 2: Sins of the Father. Following the episode, we have a great roundtable discussion of the series with some die-hard Whovians. And in case you missed it, we interview MA Tamburro and Atweh from AM Audio Media in Issue 11.
For all the episodes in series 2, visit AM Audio Media. And you can catch up on series 1 there too.
