    That’s how we all end I guess.

    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.

    Direct Podcast Download

    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.

  • Audio Ep. 15: Cyberman Sitcom ft. The Krynoid Podcast

    16 July 2017 (3:57pm GMT)
    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.

    Episode Duration: 50 minutes and 41 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Not all trees bleed, but the ones that do… they’re pretty creepy.

    I’m pretty certain this is the newest audio drama that we’ve listened to, which is kind of interesting because it’s also about the oldest (and one of the best) TARDIS team on the books. Unless, I guess, if you count just The First Doctor and Susan. Which maybe you should, I don’t know. It’s Domain of the Voord, written by Andrew Smith and released September 2014. Domain of the Voord can be purchased for $11 (or your local equivalent) on Big Finish's website.

    Episode Duration: 54 minutes and 25 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Apparently there are actually 5 Hatchet novels.

    This week Trust Your Doctor makes it to the halfway point of the audio drama side-step they did. Which means next week we listen to another first doctor story and then work our way back up again. But this week, it’s The Anachronauts, written by Simon Guerrier and released in January of 2012. The Anachronauts can be purchased for $8 (or your local equivalent) on Big Finish's website.

    So this is what it has come to, the eaters of light have to die.

    This week we decided to walk across a nice little moor in Scotland. We watched as someone just out of view got struck by lightning. It was really weird, there weren’t even clouds in the sky. We ran over and told us a story, the story of Helicon Prime, relayed to him by Jake Elliott. Apparently the story was first told in November of 2007.

    Everybody knows that the hyper ancient >>>> regular ancient.

    This week we’ve reached the companion chronicles section of the podcast. Which means we’re at the non full cast audio section of the 16 week adventure. Which also means our episodes might be slightly shorter for a few weeks. Never fear, we’ll return to full 2 and a half hour length glory soon. It’s Ghost in the Machine, written by Jonathon Morris and released October 11, 2013. Ghost in the Machine can be purchased for $8 (or your local equivalent) on Big Finish’s website.

    Ogrons have a lot of hate stored in them.

    This week we drop off the audio train for a little while to do a little mental stimulation. This week we actually had to do work for this podcast and read a book, which is honestly too much brainpower for me. It’s The Romance of Crime, written by Gareth Roberts and and published on January 19, 1995

    Show-notes:
    9:05 Most people don’t know this but Alcatraz is actually derived from Al Katraz, the famous Arabic poet known for mastering the haiku. One of his most famous poems: Raped by the inmates, and then beaten by the guards, then raped by the guards.
    21:30 I never knew The Mask was based on a comic. Then again I never knew real life was based on a comic, so yeah.

    This week it seems we’ve jumped a time-track. We’ll get it back on track shortly, I just need to recalibrate my time scanner… thing. Look, I’ve read the TARDIS manual and I still have absolutely no idea what this part is so I guess I’m just going to throw it out.

    Episode Duration: 1 hour, 59 minutes and 20 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    My cunning plan to win Eurovision is to bring a Wolf Catapult to my performance.

    This week we’re joined by Brendan and Nathan for what is quite possibly the most inefficient (but surely the most interesting) summary of a Doctor Who story in existence. The four hosts proceed to spend about 2 hours explaining the 2 hour long story. It might just be quicker to read the wikipedia page for the story while listening to it. But that wouldn’t be as fun, now would it? We also spend upwards of 10 minutes just trying to end the episode. It’s Bang -Bang-a-Boom! written by Gareth Edwards and Clayton Hickman and released in December of 2002. Bang-Bang-a-Boom! can be purchased for $3 (or your local equivalent) on Big Finish's website.

    Show-notes: 10:56 The Mostly Made-up Doctor Who Episode Guide is still one of the best Doctor Who podcasts out there. Why don’t you, uh, go and, uh, take a listen to them? Uh? Right there. Go on. Do it.
    7:56 And now with the magic of the internet you can listen to Lulu’s Boom Bang a Bang from Eurovision 1969 whenever you want. Relive the glory days with the power of modern technology. And get off my lawn. There’s not wifi on my lawn.
    9:24 Something something something about rights, bla bla, where’s all the cool stuff like those holographic wolves?
    13:33 Space:1999: for dummies: like us: cause we knew nothing about it: the wiki article: the animated series: the movie.
    35:52 Here’s drwhoguide. Last updates 22-DEC-2013.
    1:00:10 Don’t let your dreams be dreams. Follow them. Just like Shia did.

    10:56 Room 217 in the book and 237 in the movie.
    22:55 Ok, if you like pretty great stories that only take like a minute to read and are also literal trash, here’s Franz Kafka’s Before the Law (one translation of it).
    34:43 The de-mat gun, as seen in Invasion of Time. That’s right Rassilon. Yeah. Get out of here. And get your name off this stupid gun. Oh, it’s not on it. Well still get out. Jerk.

    Hey look, kaboom and vroom rhyme.

    This week we start a new era, and then immediately end it. It’s a single episode long, albeit a much longer than usual episode. It’s a bit weird, you may not have heard of it. It’s called The TV Movie, written by Matthew Jacobs and aired in May of 1996.

    Show-notes:
    22:55 He should have worn it cause he’s not a crook.
    39:53 They mentioned it again in Invasion of Time.

    And with that, it ends.

    Trust Your Doctor would like to announce that we’re going on a 7 year hiatus. We’ll return with the TV Movie in April of 2024. Until then, we hope you enjoy this look back at the Seventh Doctor as well as the classic show as a whole.

    Show-notes:
    14:18 Mostly Made Up Doctor Who Episode Guide is one of the best Doctor Who podcasts out there.
    22:21 “Dinner tonight’s going to be a national disaster” is the real quote. Best quote. Best character. Bring back the chef.
    26:24 300 came out in the year 300. Jk it came out in 2006.

    No offense intended, of course.

    We did it. We’ve reached the end of the classic Doctor Who. The show is dead. We’re dead. Everything is dead. Which is kind of weird, because the story is called Survival. It was written by Rona Munro and aired in November and December of 1989.

    Show-notes:
    6:30 Wow, it’s real. But apparently black cat appreciation day also exists and is on August 17th. I have my calendar marked. Actually I don’t.
    11:51 Probably Doctor Who and the Silurians.
    21:25 According to this National Geographic article from 3 years ago, Cheetah’s are between 40 and 50 percent successful, less than other big cats.

    Stupefy!

    Halfway through the final season wow. This week we’re back with possibly the most confusing story ever broadcast in the history of television. I promise. It’s Ghost Light, written by Marc Platt, aired October of 1989.

    Show-notes:
    5:07 Yeah, apparently they used a real house just for the exterior and apparently the observatory was added in post production.
    13:37 Well searching “round mini shades” only brought up pictures of lampshades and searching “round mini glasses” brought up pictures of drinking glasses. My google fu is weak. Oh well.
    17:35 There were a bunch of guys who researched these moths, but one of the first was someone named JW Tutt. Here’s a random journal article about him. The J didn’t stand for Josiah by the way.
    21:19 Meh. Too lazy to read all of this. So maybe. You tell me.
    24:04 It’s actually a big slug thing from Star Wars. Oh, sorry that’s Jabba. Java is an island in Indonesia.
    37:21 According to a text from Dylan, she had nine heirs. See here for more details.

    This week it’s the twenty-fifth anniversary of Kennedy’s Assassination! No, that’s not right. What else happened around that time? It’s Silver Nemesis, written by Kevin Clarke and aired November and December of 1988.

    Show-notes:
    5:18 Because of this crap. Thanks people of the past. Thanks for doing this. Calculating dates is really something your descendants wanted to do.
    15:17 If you don’t already know what that is then you probably don’t want to…
    21:28 The first one is the good one. The second one is the one with the octopus face guy. The third one is the one with the ship in a desert. The fourth one is the pretty bad one. The fifth one is the one that’s not out yet. Hope that clears it up.
    34:52 Jesus… Well, at least the show has come a long way in some ways. Making a better looking costume on a tiny budget is one of those ways.
    37:25 Don’t believe me?
    37:35 Still don’t believe me?
    38:51 No.

    1:32 The Thatcher “regime” lasted from 1979 to 1990. Apparently there’s no term limit or term of office for UK PMs, but it’s complicated.
    11:31 Learn more about that here. Or don’t. I don’t care.
    38:36 This mascot. I’ll never be able to look at this thing now without thinking that it’s some dangerous homicidal maniac that kills with a smile on its face.

    It feels like we just started this era yesterday.

    The end of an era, truly. The Sixth Doctor was here for nearly 10 seasons. Wait, you’re telling me that in this universe he only had two seasons? How did you guys cope? So you didn’t get The March of the Valeyard? Devastation of the Daleks? The Damnation? I can’t believe it, this really is the darkest timeline. Well, here’s the Sixth Doctor retrospective anyway, featuring an additional discussion of Spiral Scratch. Spiral Scratch was written by Gary Russell and released on the 4th of August, 2005.

    Show-notes:
    17:20 “Other voice actors: Colin Baker”
    21:08 Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency is a book by Douglas Adams. It’s kind of inspired by the Doctor Who serials he wrote, but I thought it was boring and also terrible.
    31:08 It’s The Langoliers, which is from a larger collection by Stephen King.

    Oh no. It appears I’ve become trapped in Doctor Who.

    We finally made it to the end of The Trial of a Time Lord. For us, only 4 weeks of TV. For anyone back in 1986, it was a solid 14 weeks. 14! I’m so sorry. It’s the Ultimate Foe, where Part 1 was written by Robert Holmes and Part 2 by Pip and Jane Baker. It was aired in November and December of 1986.

    Show-notes:
    2:30 And The Two Doctors.
    10:18 For Doom the Bell Tolls.
    35:20 Which would be The Wrong Doctors. Maybe we’ll listen to that someday. -\_(tsu)_/-

  • Episode 149: An Implausibility of Gnus

    25 December 2016 (4:57pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 54 minutes and 26 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Imagine how implausible it was that this would go out on Christmas.

    Actually it’s like a 1/7 in chance that it’d land on Christmas. Although I’m not a statistician so who actually knows right? It’s Terror of the Vervoids, written by Pip and Jane Baker and aired in November of 1986.

    Show-notes:
    16:03 Here’s the list. Other ones that stood out: a flamboyance of flamingos, a bike of hornets, an exaltation of larks, an unkindness of ravens.
    29:03 If you didn’t know, Ms. Pac-Man was originally a Pac-Man knockoff/copycat before becoming officially endorsed by Namco.

  • Episode 148: Why are we Supposed to Care Again?

    18 December 2016 (4:57pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 44 minutes and 6 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Peri’s supposedly dead and we don’t care. Kind of like Crozier when Yiv started dying.

    The greatest Doctor Who writer ever returns. Philip Martin. Why is he the greatest? Well he created Sil, the best villain we’ve ever had. The Ferengi slash Slug hybrid is the most conniving and genius person who’s ever faced off against the Doctor. It’s Mindwarp, aired in October of 1986.

    Show-notes:
    5:07 It’s actually six species. I guess. I wouldn’t know since I’ve never watched Start Wreck. I mean Star Trek.
    10:11 Hmmm… I think I do.
    14:41 Please let this be true.
    15:21 Luckily they didn’t go down that route. And I’m sure they wouldn’t pull something like retconning it into happening in a later serial, right? Ha ha.
    23:42 Definitely don’t not check out our other podcast, Treble Plane. Though the X-Men episode we talk about here doesn’t come out until like March.
    32:33 What most people don’t know is that the theme building at LAX was actually converted from a crashed alien spacecraft back in the 60s. No wonder it looks so futuristic and out of place.
    32:55 3 seconds of Google brought me to this list of iconic buildings. Yeah some of these are pretty cool. Probably pretty famous too. Not sure if they’re top-3-worthy though.

    The Doctor is a marsupial now. Deal with it.

    Robert “Basically created Doctor Who” Holmes returns to pen his final complete serial. Obviously he starts the Ultimate Foe, but he never finishes that so, it’s just this final serial of his, The Mysterious Planet to watch. It was aired in September of 1986.

    Show-notes:
    2:28 This masterpiece. Ok, honestly I actually like this arrangement. They should have used it.
    16:56 Garron and Unstoffe from The Ribos Operation.

  • Episode 146: Bible of the Daleks

    4 December 2016 (4:57pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 59 minutes and 7 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    You know eventually they’ll make Bible of the Daleks because there’s only so many words you can use for ___ of the Daleks.

    Here come the Daleks again. Is there some sort of unwritten pact that they have to appear for every doctor? Because they have so far. At least for us, I’m not counting the reboot (yet). It’s Revelation of the Daleks, written by Eric Saward and aired in March of 1985.

    Show-notes:
    7:56 The Star Wars Holiday Special, largely regarded as one of the best 3-course dinners of all time, was aired only once on November 17, 1978 B.C. Written, directed, produced, and baked to a golden brown by the artists formerly known as George Lucas and Jar Jar Binks, it has been made widely available in a number of different formats, such as VHS, Blu Ray, Laserdisc, pdf, and cereal box activity. You can check out the Holiday Special in all its glory here.
    10:15 Greeks.
    12:48 Nope.
    19:13 Barrow just changed its name back to Utqiagvik.
    20:20 According to this site, countries that list an indigenous American language as an official language are Bolivia, Guatemala, Paraguay, Peru, and Venezuela. It doesn’t list Greenland, but it’s one too, and there are probably more.
    24:27 Yeah, looks pretty cool.
    31:46 Apparently it took 5 years, but Terry Garrett completed Ocarina of Time completely blind. Here’s the full playlist of all his Zelda videos.
    56:50 Uh… what.

    More psuedo than science to be honest.

    Sherlock Holmes became a beekeeper after he retired from detective work. Did you know that? Well you do now. It’s Timelash, written by Pennant Roberts and aired in March of 1985. I make a note that it was written by Pennant Roberts, because we constantly complain about McCoy when all he did was direct.

    Show-notes:
    3:41 You wouldn’t want to meet the Jabberwocky. He’s actually pretty frumious in person. The other thing that ended with “-il” were Carol’s ill rhymes.
    4:57 MRGLRGRLRGRLR.
    24:01 Still a pretty cool scene. Kinda want to watch the whole movie again now.

    This week, the slog through season 22 continues. Luckily our distress call was heard by The Second Doctor and Jamie, so they’re shown up to spice up the serial a bit. It’s the Two Doctors, written by Robert Holmes and aired in February and March of 1985.

    Show-notes:
    3:44 Looks like it was just retconned. Just like how they retconned the Third Doctor into being a world champion hula hooper. Definitely not making this up. Seriously. Look it up if you don’t believe me.

    Episode Duration: 50 minutes and 37 seconds

    I question whether the choreographers even knew how to read a choreograph.

    So, the universe is populated by more rogue time lords than we thought. Seriously, every week it feels like they add another one. This time it’s The Mark of the Rani, written by Pip and Jane Baker and aired in February of 1985.

    Show-notes:
    5:33 Yup.
    5:49 Another 30 seconds on google only brought up Doctor Who stuff, so I guess it’s a totally original name. This blog gives an explanation of the name (using this as a source) but who knows how true it is? Either way, I really like “Parabola Rainbow Moondancer Galadriel.” That should have been her name.
    12:54 The wiki lists a lot more, including Susan and Drax. How could we have forgotten Drax?
    16:16 This one. I almost forgot how not good at all Family Guy is.
    22:33 No!! NOOO!!!!
    32:53 Yeah, it’s a gyroscope.
