Hey y'all, Let's talk about bonnets, baby! We're just tickled to say that Emma Fraser has returned to the show for our discussion of the costumes in Joe Wright's PP (which, let's be honest, is really mostly a discussion of the green dress in Atonement.) Also, we're so excited to say we're doing a panel at New York Comic Con! Our panel is Saturday n…
 
Hey y'all, Maybe you thought we couldn't do an hour-long episode about roughly 39 seconds of a movie. If so... why? We did a whole series of episodes about one single episode of Wishbone. Anyway, here are our thoughts on the hottest piece of inaccurately-named hand-acting (hacting?), with *invaluable* insights from our special guest, Sarah Marrs of…
 
We're back from yet another of our trademark hiatuses to discuss the recent news about the show's future. Series 13 is set to be the last for both Jodie Whittaker and Chris Chibnall -- though, as we discuss, nobody has said anything yet about Mandip Gill, who we can only assume is going to take over Doctor and showrunner duties going forward. We lo…
 
Hey y'all, And so begins KEIRAFEST, which is what we're calling our coverage of another formidable PP: Joe Wright's 2005 adaptation, starring Mme. Keira Knightley and Matthew Macfadyen. It's a good 'un. Allison has seen it. Janine has seen it. Julie has not. Sounds like a decent excuse to rip off Julie's podcast Maria, Solved! if ever we heard one.…
 
Hey y'all, Our third and (for now) final episode on Gurinder Chadha's wonderful rom-com (with songs!) lies within. We're joined by a special guest, writer/podcaster Manish Mathur! In the episode, Manish mentions an article he wrote: that's 10 Essential Films from Indian Cinema, and it's well worth your click. If you want to listen to his delightful…
 
Hey y'all, We're joined this week by the GOAT Caroline Bingley and our new favorite dog choreographer, Jeanne Simpson! Jeanne talks to us about her experience on Wishbone, why she loves Jane Austen, and what it's like to choreograph a dance about learning to use the shitter. It's a very special episode. We hope you enjoy listening to our conversati…
 
Hey pals, Welcome to part two—part two! of three!—of our miniseries on the Wishbone episode "Furst Impressions." We're joined this week by comedian and actor Danny Jolles (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend), whose first comedy special, 6 Parts, came out at the end of March. It's excellent, and because Danny's cool as hell, it's also free to everyone on the ol' Y…
 
Hey y'all, And now, our first impression of Wishbone's "Furst Impressions." The first in a three-part series. All on Wishbone's "Furst Impressions." This is not a joke, we really are doing three episodes on "Furst Impressions." With only slightly further ado, enjoy. The additional ado: you'll hear about this in the episode, but our next PP is Being…
 
Hey y'all, Herein continues our coverage of the bro-ad trip shows within our purview, Men In Kilts and The Wine Show. As a reminder, last week, we started with MIK, episode one. This week brings our thoughts on The Wine Show's first episode. Next we jump back onto the Austen beat (what's next? WOULDN'T YOU LIKE TO KNOW) and in the interim we'll bin…
 
Hey y'all, Herein begins our coverage of the bro-ad trip shows within our purview, Men In Kilts and The Wine Show. Normally this would just be some jokes, but instead, here's a little rundown of how this will work. We're starting with MIK, episode one. Next week you'll hear our thoughts on The Wine Show's first episode as well. Then we drift back i…
 
ENTHUSIASTIC LISTENING SUGGESTION, Y'ALL: We highly recommend that you listen to this episode and the next one, which will post immediately afterward, back-to-back. This one's short-ish, the next one's not. They're of a pair and you'll enjoy both more in sequence. Anyway, here's episode 2 of Death Comes To Pemberley, or the one where Allison tells …
 
Hey y'all, We're back, for real this time! Time-travel with us to January, when we recorded this episode with friend-of-the-show and costume expert Emma Fraser, who, by virtue of her whole lived life, is actually qualified to weigh in on the quality of Renee Zellweger's accent. It's a gem. Next up: Pride & Prejudice & Zombies & Matt Smith Jumping R…
 
Hey y'all, Here's part three of our Bridget Jones's Diary extravaganza! At the end of this episode, you'll hear us say that our next episode is Pride & Prejudice & Zombies, but SIKE it's actually a BJD costumes episode. After that, though! Zombies! They're coming to get you, Barbara! Many thanks to the great Caroline Siede, our guest for this episo…
 
Hey y'all, Here's part two of our Bridget Jones's Diary extravaganza, The One In Which We Talk About Emergency Fuck Protocols. This is a good movie! We liked talking about it so much that there are two more proper episodes still to come, plus a bonus episode; it is many thousands of words and only about a quarter of them are "fuck." We hope you had…
 
Alasdair and Allison take a look at a very eventful New Year's special, as we see big returns, big departures, and a tease of a big new addition. All that and, oh, right, the Daleks! We both enjoyed this one a lot, especially for various character moments that made us think maybe, just maybe, Chris Chibnall has figured out what he wants to do with …
 
Hey y'all, Happy Holidays to those who celebrate and a Very Merry Almost 2021 to those who don't! Enclosed within is our gift to you, in a matter of speaking: The first of four (five, for Patreon members!) episodes on the rom-com classic, Bridget Jones's Diary. Listen on for our thoughts on patriarchal bullshit, the devious hotness of asshole Hugh …
 
Hey y'all, Ugggggggggggggggh, this is not a good movie. It's not even really a Pride and Prejudice adaptation. But we had a great time talking about it all the same, especially because we were joined by a dear old friend—the goddess, the legend, the reality television almuna, Elise Mayfield. Elise's audio cut out in the last few minutes, but she ha…
 
We're back for our third live show of 2020! Here's the recording of our Crowdcast hangout with a couple dozen of our lovely listeners, in which we field all manner of intriguing questions, including: What is the best episode of series 8, and why is it "Mummy On The Orient Express"? (Taken verbatim, that one.) *Did* Clara meet the Doctor's pre-Hartn…
 
Hey y'all, Well, something had to follow our beloved BBCPPAE, so it may as well be the 1940 Pride & Prejudice Laurence Olivier/Greer Garson-starring adaptation, a.k.a. the one with the snack sleeves. Listen on for our thoughts on leftover Gone With the Wind costumes, Aldous Huxley, and sexy sexy archery. Next week is the 2018 Hallmark "adaptation,"…
 
Reminder: We have a live show this Saturday, December 12, at 6:30 p.m. Eastern! Go to https://www.crowdcast.io/e/ddw-live to sign up or just join us on the day. As for today, here's the first installment of a new occasional series in which Alasdair and a rotating team of cohosts look at works that Doctor Who luminaries (Whominaries?) worked on befo…
 
Hey y'all, It's the end of the road (for now, at least) for the 1995 BBC/A&E miniseries adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, and we have thoughts. Consider this our farewell to Colin's calves (also for now—those calves are forever). Next week, it's Laurence Olivier and Greer Garson's turn! Lots of love, Allison, Julie, and Janine…
 
Hey y'all, Please read these notes! You will need them! As you'll hear, this episode comes with a visual aid. You can find Keenan's PowerPoint here. You can see a picture of a bourdaloue here. As for our amazing guests, you can find them on Twitter here and here. Two other quick notes: First, you'll notice some weird audio things here. We had some …
 
There's just so much news to talk about! Enough to lure Allison back on for another episode during what is increasingly inaccurately being called a "hiatus", even! We break down the newly released trailer for the upcoming special, "Revolution Of The Daleks", and for some reason the newly revealed guest cast launches Alasdair on tangents about Law &…
 
Hey y'all, Are the shades of our podcast to be thus polluted? We reach the end of PPBBCAEnemesis, as it is properly known, and get in a few last dunks on poor Lydia. But never fear, this is not the end of our miniseries chat—two more episodes, and then we move on to the Laurence Olivier/Greer Garson film adaptation. Have a SAFE, EXTREMELY SAFE holi…
 
Fire up the news klaxons, we've got a big return to discuss! Doctor Who turned 57 on Monday, and it was kind enough to get us a birthday present: a tiny teaser for the upcoming festive special, "Revolution Of The Daleks", revealing that Captain Jack will once again be back. We somehow manage to spin forty minutes of discussion out of this, includin…
 
The world got busy around us once again, but Doctor Who is coming back, which means Debating Doctor Who must as well. Except, in both cases, we're improvising through the circumstances around us. For us, that means Allison is taking a little break through the holidays, meaning Rorypalooza must wait until the new year. But! We'll still both be doing…
 
Hey y'all, Please read this, if you have a minute. Our next episode was meant to be our take on the fifth A&E/BBC PP as adapted by Emma Thompson's nemesis. As you'll hear, things had to shift a bit. Don't worry! That's coming this week! But for now, here's our 100th episode. We recorded this Friday night the week of the election, and as you may rec…
 
We wrap up our trilogy of Clara episodes with a look at some stories from her final season aboard the TARDIS. We examine what "Under The Lake"/"Before The Flood" has to say about her willingness to do what needs to be done to save the day, and then how "Face The Raven" reveals just how dangerous acting like the Doctor can be. Also, we briefly recon…
 
Hey y'all, Friend of the show Scottie joins us to talk about the third episode of the BBC/A&E adaptation of Pride and Prejudice. Our feelings cannot be repressed, we must tell you how ardently we admire and love having her on the show. Take care of yourselves, dear ones. Lots of love, Julie, Allison, and Janine (and Scottie)…
 
Our deep dive into all things Clara Oswald somehow gets even deeper in the second edition, as we look at no less than four of the episodes from series eight. That's a third of the entire season! We look at her re-beginnings in "Deep Breath", then Alasdair mounts a spirited defense of "In The Forest Of The Night", much to Allison's patient bemusemen…
 
Hey y'all, Janine met Mr. Collins and we could not be more delighted. He's also got some shopping to do. A few quick programming notes for our dear patrons: First, we're trying something new and doing a little Drunkcast lunch break every Friday at 1pm CST. Come hang out and say a quick hello! Second, we're going to keep doing our live watchalongs, …
 
Hey y'all, Get ready to hear Allison tell stories you just heard a week ago because her memory is garbage and these episodes were recorded months apart! We get into the first episode of A&E/BBC's Pride and Prejudice miniseries and—spoiler alert—spend a lot of time talking about how hot Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle are. Programming note: We're reco…
 
Our long-awaited (by us, anyway) deep dive into Clara Oswald begins! We take a look at a pair of stories from Series 7B, when Clara was more a mystery than a character and the 11th Doctor was kind of... is awful too strong a word? In "Journey To The Centre Of The TARDIS," at least, 'awful' doesn't feel unjustified, as he's on his very worst behavio…
 
Hey y'all, This episode was recorded near the end of July (and then life happened, you know how it is) so it is most definitely an artifact of the way, way back times of before October. And not to overhype it, but Julie and I (this is Allison, by the way) both think this episode includes one of the best jokes we've ever made on the show, and spoile…
 
We get back (after an unexpected but at this point probably not surprising delay) to our regularly scheduled programming with a look at a pair of Danny Pink stories, "Listen" and "The Caretaker." The former still stands as one hell of an episode, with plenty to say about all sorts of things, Danny very much included. The latter... well, it's not ve…
 
We'll be back soon with our regularly scheduled look at companion showcase episodes -- Danny Pink is next! -- but first, we wanted to take an episode to remember a legend of film and television. Diana Rigg died last week at 82, so we revisit her absolute delight of a performance as Mrs. Gillyflower in "The Crimson Horror." Sure, the rest of the epi…
