The Weekly Stuff Podcast #198 – 13th Doctor Who Announcement, Destiny 2 Beta, and Twin Peaks Part 10



It’s time for another episode of The Weekly Stuff Podcast with Jonathan Lack & Sean Chapman, a weekly audio show that explores the worlds of film, television, and video games. You can subscribe for free in iTunes by following this link.

This week brings with it some pretty monumental news, as we not only get to talk about the announcement of the 13th Doctor on Doctor Who, but that Jodie Whittaker will be the first woman to take up the iconic role. It’s a huge moment for the series, an exciting one that brings so many possibilities, some of which we ponder here. Sean also talks about the Destiny 2 beta, Jonathan looks back on the second season of Broadchurch (a show written by upcoming Doctor Who showrunner Chris Chibnall and co-starring upcoming Doctor Jodie Whittaker), and we break down a bunch of interesting news from the past week. And finally, we dive into the dark, wonderful, surprisingly sexual insanity of Twin Peaks: The Return Part 10 in our weekly spoiler-cast segment.

Enjoy!

It’s been a long time coming, but we’re finally able to talk about another good Spider-Man movie with Spider-Man Homecoming, a wonderful addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe that is endlessly charming and fun, and a pitch-perfect representation of one of our favorite fictional characters. We offer a full spoiler review of the film, along with our continued thoughts on Twin Peaks: The Return, with the latest episode “Part 9.” And before we get to those main topics, Sean also gives some belated thoughts on Nier Automata, while Jonathan offers an early review of War for the Planet of the Apes and a late review of Baby Driver.

The Weekly Stuff Podcast #196 – Doctor Who Series 10 Finale Spectacular!



It’s time for another episode of The Weekly Stuff Podcast with Jonathan Lack & Sean Chapman, a weekly audio show that explores the worlds of film, television, and video games. You can subscribe for free in iTunes by following this link.

It’s an all Doctor Who all-the-time episode on the show this week, as this weekend saw the 10th series reach its dramatic conclusion with “The Doctor Falls,” an episode that instantly enters the show’s pantheon as an all-timer. On its own, the episode gave us plenty to talk about, but we also had to consider the hour in context of the season preceding it, discuss how well this season fared on the whole, think about where the show is going from here, and begin to close the book on this incredible Steven Moffat/Peter Capaldi era of the series. Doctor Who has always been and will always be one of our favorite topics, but it’s been a particularly fun run with Moffat and Capaldi at the helm, and while there’s still the Christmas special to go, “The Doctor Falls” made for one hell of a climax, more than worthy of devoting an entire podcast.

Enjoy!
