Episode 004: Doctor Who

This week’s show is a big ball of wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey…stuff, as Kat (a Newvian) and Dan (a not-even-thatvian) get schooled in Doctor Who by superfan Susan Arendt and actual British guy Rob Smith. How did this thing turn into something every geek seems to need to watch? Is it worth revisiting the older shows? What was it like to be a fan before the modern reboot — let alone growing up with it in England? How do you keep 40 years of continuity straight? It’s half history, half cocktail-party primer for anyone who’s still wondering why nobody stops this man from kidnapping women and stuffing them in a blue closet. Plus, two guests means a different approach to You Must Choose, and Chance Fortran’s ship calls someone a dirty word.
