Best Ever Doctor Who Podcast: Timey-Wimey Tea Time Ep. 1 with Yomar Lopez, Chris Gannon and Stan Faryna

 

The 12th Doctor is going on. We’re in past episode two and some already love Peter Capaldi. Others are waiting to see if he can be the better man. Or, more precisely, Gallifreyan.

 Really? But it’s just a TV show. What does it have to do with me?

Maybe, everything. Or not.

Time-Wimey Tea Time Recap


This episode, Yomar Lopez, Chris Gannon and Stan Faryna talk about lots – why Doctor Who is important, the problematic of a brow-beaten Doctor, the enthusiasm of the Doctor Who community for Tea Time and people’s hopes for a brave, new Doctor.  

Chris Gannon of The Gaming Death Podcast talks about how he got hooked on Doctor Who.

“My first introduction with Doctor Who… there’s this goofy looking British guy in a long leather trench coat and this really hot blonde being attacked by plastic mannequins and I was like, what is this, this is cheesy and weird and super smart and really funny, entertaining.”
Stan Faryna talks about the kind of Doctor he wants Capaldi to be (on air and off).
“In these times of brutal violence, savage sexuality and a want of leadership, Doctor Who must be a counter cultural champion. He must be an antidote to materialistic delusions, the happy-faces of a me-first false consciousness, and easy platitudes of self-deceit.

Doctor Who does not let it flow. He doesn’t go with the flow. He turns the tide, he rejects the incompleteness of human thinking and the darkness of the human heart as it is embodied in alien or other threats, and, thereby, he helps us see the bigger picture. The Doctor helps us see beauty. That’s his job.
But not just beauty. He helps us to see good that we may do good. He helps us to know the truth that we may live out truth. That’s who the Doctor is. Clara’s courage, obviously, can’t compete with that. And Moffat shouldn’t even try to make her compete with that who-ness.
It’s a disservice to Clara.”
Yomar Lopez shares some of the love we’re getting on YouTube.
Keep it going. Best Doctor Who podcast ever!

  1. Bro!

    You totally captured the feels here. My issue with Clara is similar to what I feel about River Song. Clearly, this scenario is far more imbalanced but it’s still a disservice to the characters. There’s nothing wrong with a companion showing up the Doctor but, when he comes off as a complete tool and suddenly forgets things that he has mastered over hundreds, if not thousands, of years.. WTF?!

    It just burns me up. We don’t need over-stated strength at the cost of the Doctor. Don’t make the Doctor into a tard so that other characters can shine. Everyone can play their part and be a hero but not at the cost of the protagonist.

    Grrrrrr…

    Okay, I’m glad I got that off my chest. ;o)

  2. BTW, I promised these fine gents that we would promote them so here we go. They really inspired the discussion of a female lead and I like what they bring to the discussion:

    http://www.kasterborous.com/2014/02/doctor-need-female-lead-podkast-decides/

    In their latest episodes, they discuss Peter Capaldi’s ban on flirting, “Deep Breath” highlights, and how Steven Moffat is upsetting people.. again. Apparently, Moffat was upset that fans and media outlets were referring to the “uNF” Doctor and it is inappropriate.. Because The Doctor never refers to himself in that manner.

    I reckon Moffat is a hard person to deal with. He has that air to him.. It’s no wonder people leave. Who knows, though.. Poor Eccleston.. SMH.

    They also talk about “Time Of The Doctor” and how The Doctor regenerates and keeps his own faith. I seem to recall The Doctor referring to his previous lives as numbered entities.

Speak Your Mind
