With the announcement of the New Doctor, we decided to step back into the TARDIS and catch up on the Doctor’s most recent adventures. In short – we liked Bill a lot, but it was still a very Moffaty season for the most part. Still – we have MANY THOUGHTS. Aside from the Who-Talk, we have also an update on our reading challenge and on our watermelon beer preferences.
Segment 1: What Are We Geeking Out About? (2:02)
Every week in the opening segment we discuss what we’re currently geeking out about! This week Kristin is geeking out about Back to School horse show (with bonus what color is your ribbon?) and Brian is geeking out about Orphan Black Season 5 (with bonus much deserved praise for the incomparable Tatiana Maslany).
Segment 2: What Are We Drinking About This Week? (13:03)
AN UPDATE ON OUR HARRY POTTER VS DARK TOWER READING CHALLENGE!
Segment 3: Doctor Who Discussion (24:03)
- A little recap of our Season 9 viewing – both missed the Christmas episode.
- We were both very done with Clara – though we liked Danny!
- W really liked Bill – a fun companion and a nice change from Clara.
- Also liked that Bill didn’t want to hook up with the Doctor.
- Bill didn’t have that much backstory, though.
- Even the bit of backstory about her Mom had little depth.
- WHO WAS THAT LADY LIVING WITH BILL
- Thinking it over – there were a lot of rehashing in this season.
- The finale was a real rehash, like almost the same as two seasons.
- Did not like how Bill was handled in the finale.
- But we did love Missy!
- We both guess who Nardole is because we didn’t watch the Christmas episode.
- Why did they bring back the old Master?
- Sad this is the only Bill season.
- Moffatt is not exactly the master of subtlety.
- Basically we really wish Capaldi and Mackie had better material to work with.
- Kristin gets super mad at Brian for not knowing who Filch.
- Next episode is the FIVE-OH and Part One of the HP v DT Reading Challenge!
- And a GIVEAWAY!!!!
