It’s been too long but last night we finally got a chance to watch Peter Capaldi play the Doctor in full as Doctor Who returned for the 8th series of the modern era (which is an unfortunate way to describe the New Who and the Old Who in that it makes the past versions sound positively archaic). As we found out, though, our reaction to the new Doctor wasn’t quite as important as Clara’s reaction.
I have to admit that I wasn’t an avowed fan of the puppy dog cuteness of the Matt Smith/Jenna Coleman pairing. Too much flirting. Not banter, not the occasional cheek — doe eyed, cotton candy flirting. I love that those antics have been put out to pasture and I adore that we got to see that in the beginning, but while it might be a welcome change for some viewers, it was clearly a whiplash inducing course shift for Clara (Coleman), who strongly rejected the Doctor right away because he was no longer “Her” Doctor.

This time on The BastardCast, Jere… screw it. BATMAN FEVER! Ben Affleck is the latest actor to put on the cowl and Jeremy and Jason have armed themselves against the imposing waves of nerd hate to talk about the good, the bad, and the unknown regarding Warner Bros. shocking choice.
That’s not all! There’s other stuff to discuss like Sylvester Stallone‘s possible Rambo return, the way that Mel Gibson may be curling his way back to legitimacy, a cell phone that goes up your butt (no, it’s not the platinum iPhone), and a robot stand-up comedian.
More? Fine! Jason yells about Steven Moffat‘s comments about the Doctor’s regeneration limit, Katee Sackhoff wants to play Harley Quinn and Mark Wahlberg wants to play Iron Man, and a Canadian dentist wants to play God thanks to his pricey purchase of a John Lennon tooth and advances in Mammoth cloning.
We’ve also got Jason drooling all over The World’s End, Simon Pegg getting lippy about Star Trek fans, Sean Connery‘s sad cinematic death, and for some reason, Jason adopts a Scottish accent for the last 7 minutes of the show.
The BastardCast: We did not try to set Dick Van Dyke on fire.
In keeping with Whovian tradition, when a Doctor leaves the show, fans must lose their ever-loving minds parsing every moment that preceded the announcement in search of clues while also wildly speculating about the future of the show and who will be the next TARDIS inhabitant.
Not wanting to be left out in the cold, we invited Nerdbastards and Blastr contributor Matthew Jackson to join us for a special Bastard Bonus Cast that is extra special and a bonus for you, our sexy and flexible listeners. The show is called: “What’s Next for Doctor Who?” and not “What is Doctor Who?” which is a show where Jeremy yells about two hearts while he stands in a closet that he swears is bigger on the inside.
Here is what you get when you choose to press play on this show, “The Bastard Bonus Cast: What’s Next for Doctor Who?”
– Matt Smith’s Legacy as The Doctor
– The Future of Doctor Who and Matt Smith’s Career
– Steven Moffat’s Time as Showrunner
– And Our Picks for The Next Doctor and the great debate about changing the Doctor’s race and/or sex.
So, press play because this shit is Timetastic!
The Bastard Bonus Cast, Where my tribble’s at?
