"I’ve got a few things to say to you…basic stuff first. Never be cruel, never be cowardly. And never, ever eat pears! Remember, hate is always foolish, and love is always wise. Always try to be nice and never fail to be kind. Oh! And you mustn’t tell anyone your name. No one would understand it anyway…except…except children. Children can hear it. Sometimes, if their hearts are in the right place and the stars are too. Children can hear your name, but nobody else, nobody else…ever. Laugh hard, run fast, be kind. Doctor, I let you go…"
-- The Twelfth Doctor, Doctor Who: "Twice Upon a Time"
Closing out the Twelfth Doctor era, my partner in time Jesse Jackson and I are back with a new episode of Next Stop Everywhere: The Doctor Who Podcast! This time, we review "Twice Upon a Time", the Doctor Who 2017 Christmas Special, featuring the final story of Peter Capaldi as the Twelfth Doctor, Pearl Mackie as Bill Potts, Mark Gatiss as Captain Archibald Hamish Lethbridge-Stewart, and David Bradley as the First Doctor!
In this episode, Jesse and I discuss things like how Jesse and I spent this year's Doctor Who Christmas, calling out BBC America for only airing episodes from the past three Doctors during marathons, two Doctor Who writers facing off against one another on screen, the First Doctor being portrayed as sexist, David Bradley reprising the First Doctor for Big Finish Productions, explaining how New Earth years work, the existential argument of whether memories make up a person more than a body, why the Twelfth Doctor was tired in his final episode, Peter Capaldi's final scene right before the regeneration, Jodie Whittaker's first scene as the Thirteenth Doctor, how to watch "The Tenth Planet" back-to-back with "Twice Upon a Time", my Reverse the Polarity segment, new feedback from Ken Schaefer, Devin Pike, David K. Proctor, Holly from Wisconsin, Paul from Australia, and others, advising Doctor Who fandom not to panic, our plans for the start of 2018, and more!
