    So over here we have the latin– space gold. Almost got sued right there.

    This week one of us watches Time Crash, while the other doesn’t. That has to be a first for this show. I’m almost certain it is.

    We’ve come far since the days of styrofoam avalanches … but not that far.

    This is the longest episode we’ve put out in a long time. It’s over an hour and a half long, and somehow it’s actually sort of interesting for the entire episode, which is really saying something. Remember our War Games episode? Good times. It’s Utopia, The Sound of Drums, and Last of the Time Lords, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on June 16, 23 and 30th, 2007.

    Show-notes:

    This is not a joke, we’re done with Doctor Who.

    Let the past die, kill it if you have to. And we did. Trust Your Doctor is dead. I’m sorry if you liked the show, but it’s done now. We’re going to replace it with a podcast that has much less overhead, it takes less time to make, and edit, and is just generally easier. Sorry. This week we review Trust Your Doctor Episode 1, which released on January 24, 2014.

    Show-notes:
    0:20 Trust Your Doctor is dead. Long live One and Done.

    What’s the equivalent of blinking for your ears? Folding them over? Something like that. Well don’t do that, if you do that while you’re listening to this episode you’ll die. So don’t do that. It’s Blink, written by Stephen Moffat and aired on June 9, 2007.

    Show-notes:
    1:08 It was Russel T.
    1:40 Check out our Ninth Doctor Retrospective. It’s basically a shorter version of Blink, with Sally Sparrow being a little girl who needs to write a report. Also no Weeping Angels.
    13:34 Turns out Mark StrickSON has had a long and varied career.
    38:30 Even the poster is mediocre.
    40:56 Check out this extremely detailed and informative documentary about the making of the Weeping Angels. I can personally say that I’m now enlightened having watched this.

    Let’s just file that under “never again.”

    This week we disguise ourselves as humans. You do remember we’re not actually humans right? We’re renegade podcast lords, we established that way back when we started the podcast. It’s Human Nature and The Family of Blood, written by Paul Cornell and aired on May 26th and June 2nd, 2007.

    Show-notes:
    5:15 Atlantis is the greatest Disney movie ever made.
    9:15 Where the Red Fern Grows is a book about a kid and two dogs. Spoiler, the dogs obviously die at the end.
    9:15 Bridge to Terebithia is another kids book. There were a couple movie versions, but the most recent one was in 2007.
    12:23 Maze Runner is yet another kids’ book. Sounds terrible, and the movie is probably worse, but what do I know?
    36:19 Just why.
    46:03 Split is a movie that came out a couple years ago. Apparently it’s a sequel to a movie that came out in 2000.

    This week we remind everyone that Nokia totally collapsed. That’s right, that really big phone manufacturer totally ruined themselves. It was no one’s fault but their own. It’s 42, written by Chris Chibnall and aired on May 19, 2007.

    Show-notes:
    0:28 This year’s Eurovision is only a few months away.
    1:30 24 ran for more than 200 episodes over like 9 seasons. Jesus.

    Only on Doctor Who will you hear “wet” bone cracking. Ew.

    You might say that the man who wrote this story is a greenhorn. You know, like a guy who is new or inexperienced at the task at hand. No? Never mind. It’s The Lazarus Experiment, written by Stephen Greenhorn, and aired on May 5, 2007.

    Show-notes:
    11:34 Obviously they’re called nibblies.
    7:52 The BBC actually only runs ads now. No more content.
    9:52 Series 11 is actually 50 minutes, not 60.
    16:30 Mark Gatiss plays Sherlock’s brother Minecraft.

    And now, Martha Jones in her first two parter. Featuring the Daleks, because bloody hell do the Daleks ever not appear? Can you imagine if they named an episode “Mystery of the Daleks” and then didn’t have the Daleks appear at all? The mystery is, where are they? It’s Daleks in Manhattan and Evolution of the Daleks, written by Helen Raynor and aired on April 21 and 28, 2007.

    Show-notes:
    14:47 More about the building of the Empire State Building here.
    18:36 They should start using man o’ wars in actual wars.
    19:18 They should bring these back to actual warfare too.
    25:09 This was all I could find about the “Daleks have to appear every season” rumor.

    Still kinda fun though.

    Gridlock is unfairly maligned. I’m putting that opinion here in writing, so you can never argue that I’ve said it, even if the audio for this episode gets garbled and never released. Or corrupted by the forces that be (looking at you Russell T.) It’s Gridlock, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on April 14, 2007.

    Show-notes:
    17:51 Couldn’t have been Christmas Invasion since Janis Joplin died in 1970.
    18:22 STEED
    21:02 I guess Old Rugged Cross is a southern song because this and all other versions of it that I could find sound pretty southern.
    21:06 Stand by m- I mean Abide with Me.
    27:06 Last of the Gadarene is a Third Doctor book by Mark Gatiss. If you’re watched or read anything else by Mark Gatiss, then you already know the story of this book. We’re onto you Mark.

    I think I might have used this as a title before…

    I think Terry Nation is out of ideas. Just flat out, like, I’m sure he just kind of read the back of his orange juice in the morning and tore the label off to give to Chris Boucher. It’s Mission to Destiny, written by Terry Nation, and aired on February 13, 1978.

    Show-notes:
    1:33 I wonder how bad this 2017 version is. Then again I wonder how bad the original is.
    3:04 Guerrilla I guess. Not exactly but oh well.
    11:52 It’s his last name. His first name is Olag, which I would make me think twice, double take, and spit out my drink.
    13:18 Children of the Stones has Gareth Thomas playing a geologist who moves to a rural village when weird things start happening. It;s pretty good and only 7 episodes, so just watch it. Try this version edited together into a 2 and half hour movie, cause the original series feels like a chopped up movie anyway.
    33:41 Not that I can find. Perfect opportunity for anyone who wants to break into the adding laugh tracks to shows without laugh tracks field.
    34:08 Fresh Off the Boat is an example of a garbage American sitcom. Surprisingly based off of a book.
    34:17 Oh god.

    This week Trust Your Doctor gets super spooky… in February. Why not, I guess, why not just release scary things in February? Nothing says you have to release them in October. It’s The Shakespeare Code, written by Gareth Roberts, and aired on April 7, 2007.

    Show-notes:
    0:38 Gareth Roberts didn’t write anything for series 1. The only things by him that we’ve covered are Bang-Bang-a-Boom, The Romance of Crime, The English Way of Death, and now this.
    2:51 Yeah, Lilith is a demon or something.
    20:49 The last time California carried out the death penalty was in 2006.
    26:27 This Animaniacs reboot is the most necessary thing in years. Totally 100% needed and I’m sure it will be amazing and won’t even come close to sucking.
    27:40 Yeah, it was Arthur C. Clarke.
    41:54 This one.
    43:16 This trailer for the 1993 Much Ado About Nothing movie kind of feels like it was a VHS preview rather than a theatrical trailer.

    I only know one thing: the podcast must die.

    Well this year we put out our least enthusiastic and most unnecessary anniversary episode ever. Next year’s going to be a big celebration because it’s our 5-year, and then after that it’s kind of “eh who cares.” You feel me? Anyway, thank you all for listening, it really means the world to us!

    Show-notes:
    9:36 You can find Flight Through Entirety here and Krynoid Podcast here. Links to where you can find their podcasts and their other accounts are on their pages.
    10:38 What could possibly be a better Christmas present than a relatively uninformed Blake’s 7 podcast?

    Universe turns out to be kind of a jerk this week.

    Well, nothing even worth watching for anymore. Rose is “dead”, the Doctor is about to become a mopey teenage boy, and Russell T. has clearly run out of ideas already. It’s Army of Ghosts and Doomsday, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on July 1st and 8th, 2006.

    Couldn’t make the episode any worse.

    Things are about to get pretty rocky on the show. Trust Your Doctor and Doctor Who. Both of them. Look it’s just bad, it’s that point in the year where we have to wonder if it’s really worth continuing the show anymore. Because Doctor Who is a bit ropey right now. It’s Love and Monsters, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on June 17, 2006.

    Show-notes:
    6:47 For Christmas 2017 we read The Hopes and Fears of all the Years by Paul Cornell. Check out that episode here.
    12:15 Shirley Henderson. I guess she’s one of those actors who uses one voice across all roles.
    21:21 Yeah, ELO has been around for like 20 years total. Started in 1970 and is still going, with a long hiatus somewhere in there.

  • Christmas Special 2017

    25 December 2017 (4:57pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 18 minutes and 20 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Best wishes to all of you at home. Or something.

    This year we decided to do a Christmas Special because apparently we just love recording so much we just had to do another episode. In fact, we love recording so much that we even decided that we’re starting a third podcast! I know! Blah: A Blah Podcast can be found wherever your podcasts are sold… soon ™. I’ve cunningly censored the name of the podcast in this description to force you to listen! I’m brilliant! So Happy Holidays and stuff. The story we talked about is called The Hopes and Fears of all the Years, which was written by Paul Cornell and published on the Telegraph website on December 22, 2007. You can read it here.

    Show-notes:
    1:27 It’s from a hymn called O Little Town of Bethlehem. I’m tempted to click on the “Play a random hymn” link on that site.
    4:52 A Shocking Accident by Graham Greene. Apparently Rap Genius has full stories now, so here’s the full text.
    6:00 Might have been related to the Japanese occupation of Burma or Burmese independence from British rule. But I really don’t know, so read those links and do your own googling to find out more.
    14:18 Actually coming January 2nd.
    14:53 The Way Ahead actually isn’t out yet, which makes sense since Blake’s 7 isn’t 40 yet. But it will be in a couple weeks, so you can get it from Big Finish then.

    So I’d say we’re probably pretty annoying little twerps too.

    This week we watch a story that says TV is dangerous. But if we’re watching Doctor Who on TV, does that mean that Doctor Who is telling us that watching Doctor Who is bad? This is very confusing stuff this. It’s The Idiot’s Lantern, written by Mark Gatiss and aired on May 27, 2006.

    Show-notes:
    2:16 June 2nd, 1953 B.C.
    4:24 Good (I guess) short history of Elvis’ appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show.
    4:42 Muswell Hill is a suburb of London. It looks exactly the same as how it was portrayed in the episode, probably because they just went there to record.
    5:52 Kid nab.
    16:47 Annette Mills.
    17:00 She’s just kidding right? Anyway, what I’m more interested in is the camcorder vision in this video.

    This week we finally reach the new Cybermen. Because the Cybermen are what we’ve been really waiting for, all of that other nonsense? Doesn’t matter. Daleks? Nope. Autons? Nah. Cybermen. It’s Rise of the Cybermen and The Age of Steel, written by Tom MacRae and aired on the 13th and 20th of May, 2006.

    Show-notes:
    7:23 High tech high pizza.
    8:05 “Starring actual Domino’s employees” – guess that explains why they can’t act to save their lives and why they don’t even seem to know what’s in the sauce or crust.
    19:02 Sounds painful.
    19:22 I guess it’s actually Don’t Stop me Now. Oh well. Queen is still overrated.

    School kind of sucks, but it’s kind of cool too. There’s a big variety in my school experiences, and probably most people’s. I don’t really know where I’m going with this, because honestly I’d prefer not to have to talk about school outside of school. It’s School Reunion, written by Toby Whithouse and aired on April 29, 2006.

    Show-notes:
    17:36 She was born in 1951, so if the beginning part of Time Warrior took place in 1973 when it aired, then she was 22.
    19:01 Third biggest city in Scotland population-wise.
    22:13 Now that I look at the Geonosians again, they don’t really remind me of them. But oh well.
    30:11 Yeah, this scene from Sherlock looks pretty similar. But the real question is why is the guy who played Moriarty flat out terrible at acting?
    38:08 Nightmare fuel.
    38:22 Apparently it’s still in production.
    49:49 Link to art.
    54:41 Just listen to this. Why couldn’t he have put even half this level of effort into Doctor Who?

    Hot is a relative term though, maybe it’s actually cold.

    I’m going to need you to call a doctor as soon as possible. I don’t care which one, it’s just, I’ve been bitten by this werewolf, and I really don’t know what to do. I’m starting to feel a bit woozy, so if you could hurry up. I’ll be in the hospital here, watching Tooth and Claw, written by Russell T. Davies. As I’m told it originally aired on April 22, 2006.

    Show-notes:
    18:52 But did she really say “We are not amused?” Radio Times has the answers we’re all looking for. Or not.
    23:12 Like we mentioned, it’s the Kohinoor, which is the largest of the Crown Jewels.
    26:06 Yeah, believe it or not, dogs actually can get hairballs.
    28:53 You don’t get a a picture of it, but this article talks about how the Death Star’s lasers wouldn’t work if it were real.
    32:05 This is actually disputed for some reason, but the Australian government says January 1, 1901, so I guess I’ll go with that.

    Too many mirrors, not enough time to lick them all.

    Looks like it’s time for Rose to actually travel with this mysterious, dashing new Doctor. In hindsight, it would be totally in character for the Tenth Doctor to lick the mirror when he looks at himself. Huh. It’s New Earth, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on April 15, 2006.

    Show-notes
    18:23 Which you can watch here. Probably the only time I’ve heard “backwards” get rhymed with “lack words.”
    18:51 Which you can read here. But I highly suggest you don’t.

    Everybody loves Howard, the new show from the BBC.

    As it turns out, the best day to invade Earth is Christmas Day, 2006, when it just so happened the Doctor was totally out of commission. If the Sycorax had just showed up like 4 hours earlier they probably would have totally succeeded. It’s The Christmas Invasion, written by Russell T. Davies, and aired on December 25, 2005.

    Show-notes:
    10:06 Might as well link this again.
    11:25 They’re actually called Roboforms and the Doctor says they behave like pilot fish.
    12:40 Yeah, dogs can get hairballs. So wolves probably can too.
    14:51 Apparently some people take shark cartilage as a supplement.
    19:02 Whiplash from Iron Man 2. He’s not original to the movie obviously. He was created for comics.
    22:42 I honestly don’t know if I believe this site or not, but according to it about 34% of people have A+ blood. That means A+ is the second most common blood type after O+. No idea about the royal family, but I did find out they’re Rh negative, which means they don’t have the Rh factor, whatever that is.
    26:48 Yeah I am just making that up.
    40:23 Controls emotions.
    40:55 Immortal jellyfish, aka turritopsis dohrnii. This thing is creepy.
    47:34 In regards to sexism in politics, the first episode of Revisionist History does a good job of summing it up. Here’s a Huffington Post article about it.
    49:12 Song for 10. I think this is the version heard in this episode.

    Can you believe it? We’re just three doctors from catching up to the show. Well, it’ll be three again by this time next year, thanks to Jodie Whittaker. It feels like we’re on a never-ending treadmill of trying to catch up. It’s the Ninth Doctor Retrospective this week, where we also talk about the 2006 Doctor Who Annual, which was published in September 2005.

    17:35 The Six Napoleons and Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle.

    Even I could get over that bar.

    Looks like we killed the 9th Doctor. Us. Directly. We called in the Daleks, told them that time was a bit weak around Satellite 5 and all that. We didn’t really expect them to show up to be honest, so imagine our surprise when we watched the Doctor die this week. Sorry about that, guess we shouldn’t be calling intergalactic criminals and genocidal maniacs. It’s Bad Wolf & The Parting of the Ways, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on the 11th and 18th of June, 2005.

    Show-notes:
    4:06 It was series 7.
    5:24 As far as I can tell the house for Big Brother UK has changed its appearance frequently. Here’s a teaser for series 4 of Big Brother UK which aired a while before this episode. From what you can barely make out, it looks kind of similar.
    5:34 Yeah, Weakest Link looks exactly the same though.
    8:16 The Weakest Link and What Not To Wear were BBC shows, but Big Brother wasn’t.
    9:34 What Not To Wear, the British version I guess. I found out what it was called by googling “British fashion tv show with two hosts.”

    Anybody got some gold I can use?

    Back to the Future this week, we’re on a satellite that broadcasts all of the news. Might be a bad idea to give a single satellite an effective monopoly over the news that everybody consumes, but what do I know? It’s The Long Game, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on May 7, 2005.

    Show-notes:
    18:00.
    20:45 Here’s what else Simon Pegg has been in if anyone cares.
    26:44 The Reavers.
    49:06 Walter Johnson’s chattel principle in his book (paper?) Soul by Soul. He didn’t come up with the term “chattel principle,” he just took it from some slave narrative from the 1800s I think, but he used it to define what he’s talking about in his book. Also I’m pretty sure Walter Johnson is a historian.
    49:49 Harriet Jacobs’ Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl was the first (or at least one of the very first) slave narratives written by a woman.

    Every single prop is made of PVC.

    It only took 5 weeks, but this week we’re cashing in on the most popular Doctor Who villain ever created. We probably could have held out longer, but we need people to listen. It’s Dalek, written by Robert Shearman and aired on April 30, 2005.

    Show-notes: 6:09 Sounds like this.
    6:58 Nah.
    7:41 Cover. Remix. Whatever. Original. “New.” Whatever.
    7:56 Johnny Cash’s Hurt. What an awful video.
    23:24 It’s Clive Finch. Not Craig Owen, that’s someone else that’s still forthcoming.
    32:38 Wouldn’t it be nice?

    Episode Duration: 1 hour, 3 minutes and 12 seconds

    Really looking forward to when they bring that back.

    This week we return to contemporary London. Well, we did return to contemporary London which is now past London. I think. I don’t remember Big Ben getting taken out by an alien spaceship, but to be fair maybe American didn’t report on that. It’s Aliens of London and World War Three, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on the 16th and 23rd of April, 2005.

    Show-notes:
    20:10 Probably cleaner and more safe than most of the meat produced in the US.
    32:06 It’s probably not true, but according to this clickbait-style article, the doors to the cabinet room are soundproof and the front door is actually reinforced steel and not wood.
    39:03 Yeah, it’s 18. Trust me. I just checked.
    39:47 The Ferengi from Star Trek. No “funny” comment cause I don’t know anything about Star Trek.
    41:12 Yeah, that was the motivation of the aliens in Battle Los Angeles, but it looks like that movie wasn’t that recent.
    43:47 Based on this, people who aren’t there probably don’t get to vote.
    51:51 Yeah, shepherd’s pie is actually minced shepherd meat cooked into a pie. Apparently it’s become a rare delicacy now that the number of shepherd’s has dramatically decreased.

    You shouldn’t be surprised, just because she’s dead doesn’t mean she can’t kill you.

    This week it turns out the world actually wasn’t blown up last week. So we had to drag ourselves to the off…garage to record a new episode of Trust Your Doctor. This week it’s The Unquiet Dead, written by Mark Gatiss and aired on April 9, 2005.

    Show-notes:
    10:26 Christmas Carol can be read here.
    18:54 Or if you like longer Dickens stories you can read Martin Chuzzlewit.
    26:45 I strongly suggest you don’t read The Fantastic Imagination by George MacDonald.
    35:22 Or if you like unfinished Dickens stories, you can read The Mystery of Edwin Drood.

    Last week (ish) there was a solar eclipse, at which point there briefly wasn’t a sun.

    We’re sorry to report that Trust Your Doctor is ending. Turns out the Earth has been destroyed, and we were on it. Bit unfortunate that was, maybe next time we’ll try be as far away as possible when the Earth goes through a catastrophe.

    Is there a secret third option? Please let there be.

    We’re on the downhill slope now. I mean, granted, this is an extremely long downhill slope that’s probably longer than the uphill section. Look, I don’t really know what the heck to call this. It’s a sideways trip. We’re moving leftwards. This week we watched Rose, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on March 26, 2005.

    Show-notes:
    3:04 Queer as Folk. According to Wikipedia the other shows Davies was famous for are Bob & Rose, The Second Coming, and a couple more, but I haven’t heard of any of them.
    4:41 And it was this.

    All I want you to know is that this is #mythirteenthdoctor.

    This week Kiyan and Dylan watch the final little expanded universe thing they’re watching before they get to the reboot. In sticking with completely invented and made up traditions they watched Stephen Moffat’s first contribution to the show. It’s the Curse of Fatal Death, aired on the 12th of March, 1999.

    Show-notes:
    1:45 It is a telethon and it was founded by Richard Curtis.
    24:14 Convenient article called Red Nose Day: What exactly is it? Unfortunately I can’t be bothered to read it, so I still don’t know.

    Direct Podcast Download

    Two weeks until Rose.

    This week we’ve made the biggest mistake we’ve ever made. But even our biggest mistake (watching this special) can’t compare to how big of a mistake it was for the show to make Dimensions in Time. It was written by John Nathan-Turner and David Roden, and it was aired on the 26th and 27th of November, 1993.

    Show-notes:
    6:08 Pulfrich Effect.
    10:32 Apparently the Pet Shop Boys are a musical duo. They’ve been around since 1981, so that must mean their music is bad enough for people to like it.
    11:30 It’s kind of a Big Deal.

    That’s how we all end I guess.

    Here we reach the end of our run through the Doctors from 8 down to 1 and back up again. Two weeks of random other TV things, then we finally reach Rose. Finally. Thank god. It’s Mad Dogs and Englishmen, written by Paul Magrs and released on January 7, 2002.

    Show-notes:
    3:45 The 99th BBC Doctor Who novel is apparently The Adventuress of Henrietta Street, if this site is to be believed.
    19:54 Here’s a picture of arctic char for your enjoyment.
    5:59 Check out our other podcast, Triple Flip. We recently covered the Aladding “trilogy.”

    Can you feel the change in the podcast? We’re going back to TV.

    This week Kiyan and Dylan are approaching the end of the Dark Years diversion. They’ve listened to their final audio for now, they’ve read their final book (you’ll have to wait until next week) and so it draws almost neatly to a close. Almost. But not quite. Master was written Joseph Lidster and released in October of 2003. Master can be purchased for $3 (or your local equivalent) on Big Finish's website. It's also on Spotify.

    Show-notes:
    5:59 It was McKinley.
    12:29 “Son of a bitch.”
    17:53 It was Mrs. Norris. Thank god Harry Potter is over. It’s over, right? Right?
    21:51 I didn’t look too hard obviously, but there really wasn’t anything definitive about green being considered the color of death significantly at a certain place/time. So yeah.
    22:02 Monster House is a movie.
    52:11 I won’t let my dreams be dreams I guess.
    Also discussed in this episode: Goodnight Saigon by Billy Joel.

    As it turns out, Penguins are the third largest flightless bird in the world after the Australian emu and the German mole rat.

    After last week’s rather depressing adventure, Kiyan and Dylan are back to talk about a much more uplifting and funny… oh nevermind. Well it started funny and uplifting. It… just didn’t end that way. It’s The Holy Terror, written by Robert Shearman and released in November of 2000. The Holy Terror can be purchased for $3 (or your local equivalent) on Big Finish's website. It's also on Spotify.

    Show-notes:
    1:02 The M4 Sherman?
    8:21 Googling “dammit dammit dammit” told me it’s from Robot Chicken, so let’s go with that.
    11:32 According to “Jeffrey Tan, coach for sleeping habits,” no, you can’t drown asleep.
    21:11 Surprisingly the punchline of R. Kelly’s “Trapped in the Closet” isn’t that he’s coming out of the closet. I think. I never finished it. And it’s still ongoing, so who knows?
    23:57 Her name was Genie. No relation to the Disney character Genie, from the romantic comedy fantasy animated feature film Aladdin.
    29:34 Ursula Le Guin’s “Why Are Americans Afraid of Dragons?” Knock yourself out.
    38:03 Really hope that comic book bubble bursts soon. And that Neil Gaiman bubble.
    44:12 Couldn’t find it within 30 seconds on Google, so I gave up!
    47:04 A morphologist is someone who studies morphology. Duh.

    Episode Duration: 1 hour, 29 minutes and 26 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Young and Cyber. Coming soon from BBC.

    This week Jim and Martin make a tepid return to Trust Your Doctor. Apparently they really like Cybermen because if you’ve been paying attention the first time they were on this glorious show was to talk about Revenge of the Cybermen. If you haven’t been paying attention, now you know. Also, we chose this story quite some months ago (almost 6) so the fact that it corresponds nicely with World Enough and Time and The Doctor Falls is legitimately a coincidence. But we talk about them anyway. Obliquely. It’s Spare Parts, written by Marc Platt and released in July of 2002. Spare Parts can be purchased for $3 (or your local equivalent) on Big Finish's website. It's also on Spotify.

    Show-notes:
    6:38 Alternate limited edition cover.
    1:23:27 Mostly Made Up Doctor Who Episode Guide is one of the best Doctor Who podcasts out there. Here’s their feed.
    1:25:32 Check out Krynoid Podcast’s website, with links to all their other various channels. Seriously. Do it. They just put out their Stones of Blood episode. So that’s probably good.

    No one even knows where this supposed British part even is.

    This week we actually hear Tom Baker for the first time in 20 years! Can you believe it? He sounds…. exactly the same. Honestly don’t know what I expected actually. It’s The Valley of Death, written by Philip Hinchcliffe, adapted by Jonathon Morris, and released January of 2012. The Valley of Death can be purchased for $45 as part of the Fourth Doctor Boxset (or your local equivalent) on Big Finish's website. It’s also on Spotify.

    1:19 The Brave Little Toaster Goes to Mars. I don’t remember the character designs being this wack.
