    But there’s still never enough time.

    This week we kinda liked the serial. Just kinda though, not a lot or anything. Kinda was kinda written by Christopher Bailey and aired in February of 1982.

    Show-notes:
    0:48 These things here. They’re chocolate eggs with toys inside. Apparently they’ve been banned in the U.S. for a while, but I remember eating them (or something like them) all the time as a kid. -\_(tsu)_/-
    1:29 This was the image I saw, but just googling it brought up much larger trees. Some of the characters might be from the new Lion Guard cartoon, which is a midquel to the wildly-popular Lion King II: Simba’s Pride. (Some hardcore Lion King fans out there might even remember that movie’s less-known predecessor, simply titled The Lion King.)
    9:12 We never ended up getting there, so here’s a side-by-side comparison of the original snake and the new cgi snake they created for the DVD release. You may have to pause to get a good glimpse of it.
    10:00 Bok.
    10:07 It was Bok.
    10:09 He did. It was Bok.
    31:48 It’s from Buddhism.

    It’s like bringing down the house… but… not?

    This week we swiftly move into the most bizarre misinterpretation of a character on the show so far. And that’s in a show that gave us Edge of Destruction, so you know this has to be ridiculous. It’s Four to Doomsday, written by Terence Dudley and aired in January of 1982.

    Show-notes:
    0:33 He’s from Keeper of Traken. And K9 and Company. Yeah, this is the guy who directed A Girl’s Best Friend.
    8:12 Yeah. Uh. Yup. Just gonna leave that there. And this.
    9:00 Scientists recently detected the gravitational waves that Einstein predicted a century ago. Here’s what Nasa had to say about it. Great job guys. Only took like 100 years.

  • Episode 120: Wheelchairs are Insanity!

    29 May 2016 (3:57pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 45 minutes and 22 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    I hope that when the wheelchairs take over they don’t find this.

    This week Kiyan and Dylan bravely soldier forth without their leading man Tom Baker. There’s this weird scruffy blonde dude now, can’t quite remember his name. Pete probably. It’s Castrovalva, written by Christopher H. Bidmead and aired in January of 1982.

    Show-notes:
    0:50 You can take a road traveled by a lot of people by reading “The Road Not Taken” by Robert Frost. I dunno how many people “a lot” is. Probably like 6.
    1:52 Find that here.
    4:30 But in case YOU didn’t know, here’s this super-clickable, totally-not-a-trap link.
    6:02 Doctorin’ the Tardis…?
    13:57 Just like this podcast!
    16:10 Just like this podcast!
    17:12 It was Bob Baker who co-wrote The Wrong Trousers.
    19:57 Jim Jones was a cult leader best known for convincing hundreds of people to drink poisoned Kool-Aid. Except it wasn’t actually Kool-Aid. It was Flavor Aid.
    22:39 Contrary to popular belief, the Large Hadron Collider is actually a real-world particle accelerator and NOT a fictional machine on Doctor Who. The LHC is well known for assisting scientists with producing some of the most interesting scientific materials of our time, such as quark-gluon plasma, a possible Higgs boson particle, and the turkey sandwich I ate for lunch yesterday.
    24:49 M.C. Escher was a guy with a staircase fetish. He was born in the Netherlands in 1898 and died rotting away in a Castrovalvan jail after being imprisoned for making the city impossible to navigate.

    Episode Duration: 1 hour, 37 minutes and 0 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Jim’s been calling it Trust Your Baker. Unbeknownst to him, that’s our next podcast. We’ll be talking about baking.

    Yep we’re finally here. It’s been 6 or so weeks (probably, we lost track quite a while ago) since we first announced this, and it’s here. We’ve had a few stumbles along the way, but it’s really rather fun. So join us (Kiyan, Dylan, Jim and Martin) in looking back at Tom’s run as the Doctor.

    Show-notes:
    1:09 You can find that episode here. Just saying.
    5:55 For anyone who doesn’t know much about Mary Whitehouse (like us), here’s her Wiki article.
    6:58 Target was a 1977 cop drama that was apparently criticized for its over the top violence. In addition to Hinchcliffe, a bunch of other people who worked on Doctor Who were involved. Pretty cool intro though, am I right?

  • Fan Fiction Reading 1: Lava Pirates

    15 May 2016 (10:21pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 35 minutes and 28 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Not to be confused with Space Pirates.

    Hi there. Kiyan here for once (these things are usually written by Dylan). So, like you may already be aware of, the Fourth Doctor retrospective we had planned with Krynoid Podcast has been delayed. I’m almost never sick, so of course I’d come down with fever, cough, and a bunch of other trash a day or so before we planned to record. So the retrospective is still happening, but later. We’re still working out when. Hopefully next week. But in the meantime, since we had nothing else to put out this week, we decided to do… this. In what I guess is our first ever fan fiction reading, Dylan sits down to read through a weird little story I wrote in November 2014 called Lava Pirates. It features several of my favorite First and Second Doctor villains as “lava pirates” on their quest to find the legendary Dalekenium Orb. Hope you enjoy it.

  • Special 4: Gnomewatch

    8 May 2016 (3:57pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 46 minutes and 5 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    We’re now courting founds for our Baywatch remake in the vein of Gnomeo and Juliet.

    This week Kiyan and Dylan take a nice little stroll down into some random village in the middle of the nowhere. They were getting a bit tired of The Doctor’s antics and decided to follow Sarah Jane and K9 for a week. In this very special episode of Trust Your Doctor, we cover the pilot (and only aired episode) of K9 & Company, written by Terrance Dudley and aired on the 28th of December 1981.

    Show-notes:
    1:54 The Australian K9 TV series is just called K9. It was the first Doctor Who-related series with which the BBC wasn’t involved. Bob Baker was involved though. It also features a horrific new redesign for K9!
    5:31 Apparently Hecate/Hekate was a Greek goddess of witchcraft, necromancy, and other sketch things.
    13:00 Other robotic dogs include Poo-Chi and Spot. Warning: the second link contains cruelty toward robots, which we don’t condone. Stop kicking robots!
    28:13 O Levels, or Ordinary Levels, are a now-defunct (in the UK) section of high school level classes. Apparently they’re less difficult than higher levels of classes, like the A Levels.
    30:30 K9: Timequake is a movie written by Bob Baker and set to release for K9’s 40th anniversary in 2017. It features K9 (duh) and… Omega? Yes, Omega. Yes, really. This is really real. Really.
    31:25 Anti-matter universe.
    45:50 Like we’ve mentioned about 100 times now, we’ll be doing a Fourth Doctor era retrospective next week in place of our usual episode, and it’ll feature Jim and Martin from Krynoid Podcast. You can find their show at all the links on this page.

  • Episode 119: It's More of a Mauve

    1 May 2016 (3:57pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 54 minutes and 20 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Mauve is defined as a pale purple. Which means purple is still correct.

    This week we come to the end of an era. Yes truly, Tom Baker has finally regenerated and Peter Davison has taken on the mantle of the Doctor. It’s Christopher Hamilton Bidmead’s Logopolis, aired in February and March of 1981.

    Show-notes:
    1:15 They did bring back the “Doctor Who” credit in the reboot. And then, this time at David Tennant’s request, they changed it back to “The Doctor” again.
    4:51 Apparently Tegan comes from the Welsh word for “fair.” Can’t say I’ve ever heard it. And this Tegan was like the third result on Google when I googled it, so how common could it be?
    18:38 It’s actually “Logopolitans.” Just to set the record straight.
    24:57 Palpatine. Something tells me he wants Anakin to do “it.” But what could “it” possibly be? Surely not killing Christopher Lee…
    28:48 My guess is that they’re going to brush it off with a single passing line next story!
    33:18 It’s actually from Meglos.

  • Episode 118: Murder is Definitely OK When it's Leela

    24 April 2016 (3:57pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 52 minutes and 19 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Just to clarify, we don’t condone murder.

    This week our greatest villain returns: difficult to pronounce names! Just kidding, it’s the Master. The serial at hand is The Keeper of Traken, written by Johnny Bryne and aired in January and February of 1981.

    Show-Notes
    2:11 Ki-Adi-Mundi was a member of the Jedi High Council. He was a Cerean, a species whose members have two brains.
    9:45 In 1974 Gerald Ford pardoned Richard Nixon of any crimes he may have committed. You can read the full proclamation here.
    12:36 Terrible. Just terrible.
    26:00 The seagull that landed on the chimney when Pope Francis was elected was apparently symbolic. Also, the old pope, Pope Benedict XVI, didn’t die. He resigned.
    26:24 Meanwhile, Bernie Sanders thinks “there may be some symbolism” regarding the bird that landed on his podium last month.
    26:36 I was probably thinking of Duck for President, a children’s book about, surprisingly enough, a duck running for president.
    27:06 Article 1, section 8 (a.k.a. the necessary and proper clause) of the U.S. constitution and the 10th amendment act in opposition to each other. Article 1, section 8 gives the federal government the “power… to make all laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into execution… all other powers vested by this constitution in the government of the United States,” while the 10th amendment explicitly relegates to the state governments all powers not specifically given to the federal government in the constitution. If you can’t wrap your head around this, well… you’re not alone.
    37:09 Spaceship Earth is a spherical building at Epcot in Disney World. The original concept for Epcot was developed by Walt himself, who, as we now know, got the idea from Adric and Nyssa.

    26:24 Meanwhile, Bernie Sanders thinks “there may be some symbolism” regarding the bird that landed on his podium last month.
    26:36 I was probably thinking of Duck for President, a children’s book about, surprisingly enough, a duck running for president.
    27:06 Article 1, section 8 (a.k.a. the necessary and proper clause) of the U.S. constitution and the 10th amendment act in opposition to each other. Article 1, section 8 gives the federal government the “power… to make all laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into execution… all other powers vested by this constitution in the government of the United States,” while the 10th amendment explicitly relegates to the state governments all powers not specifically given to the federal government in the constitution. If you can’t wrap your head around this, well… you’re not alone.
    37:09 Spaceship Earth is a spherical building at Epcot in Disney World. The original concept for Epcot was developed by Walt himself, who, as we now know, got the idea from Adric and Nyssa.

    We flipped a coin to decide this title.

    This week Kiyan and Dylan record in a white featureless room. It might be a padded room, we’re not really sure anymore. There’s a gate here somewhere. A Warrior’s Gate, written by Steve Gallagher and aired in January of 1981.

    Show-notes
    8:31 Several Dragon Ball Z characters train in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, another single-gated, featureless plane that you wouldn’t want to get lost in.
    9:43 The Infinite Featureless Plane of Death is, unsurprisingly, an infinite featureless plane from the surprisingly-regular Irregular Webcomic. Here are some strips that feature (get it?) the Plane.
    19:13 Two-Face is a Batman villain who decides things based on the flip of a coin. Kind of like how we make all the decisions for this podcast. Ok, not really. Maybe.
    19:59 Daredevil is a Marvel character who lost his sight in a freak accident. In exchange, all his other senses are hilariously overpowered.
    32:00 Carl Sagan was a scientist and the host and co-writer of Cosmos: A Personal Voyage.
    44:57 Richard Dawkins is another scientist and a strong opponent of creationism. He and Lalla Ward got married in 1992.
    46:46 Here’s costume designer June Hudson’s design archive if you’re interested. Here are her recent designs, which include more contemporary Doctor Who characters.
    49:48 Our Fourth Doctor retrospective will be a collaboration with Jim and Martin of Krynoid Podcast! Links to their various outlets here.

    “I’m a Time Lord bro. Back off. BACK OFF.” – Sassy Rassilon

    This week Kiyan and Dylan do not make it to Gallifrey yet, however much this title may imply that they did. Instead they fail to even leave E-Space. It’s the second story of the E-Space trilogy this week, State of Decay. It was written by Terrance Dicks and aired in November and December of 1980.

    Show-notes

    10:02 Purple was traditionally associated with nobility in a number of ancient cultures (and still is today).
    15:16 You’ve probably already seen the new Star Wars trailer, but go ahead and watch it again. Or watch it for the first time if you haven’t seen it. It was pretty good. Or not. I dunno.
    27:29 Punch cards were used to program computers and to store information back in the stone age. We’ve never seen the Doctor use his before and we’ll probably never see it again.
    31:20 Here’s a pretty extensive list of vampire weaknesses from various mythologies and media (including Count Chocula).

    This week we’ve come Full Circle. Yes, we’re right where we started. Where was this start? Well, hell if I know. But it’s right here. Right here, where we’ve come Full Circle, thanks to Andrew Smith. The serial aired in October and November of 1980.

    05:10 The staple crop on Alzarius is called riverfruit. Like everything in the Doctor Who universe, riverfruit has its own wiki page.
    07:11 Peter Howell’s site, which hasn’t been updated in 4 years. Here’s the page on his work for the BBC.
    12:26 The Right Stuff (1983) is the film that popularized the power walk. Here’s the clip.
    12:45 G.I. Joe is a line of dolls action figures from Hasbro.
    13:04 Trump.
    17:23 The Rambo films star Sylvester Stallone. They should star K9 though.
    19:29 Those were actually riverfruit, not spider eggs. The spiders use the fruit to incubate their eggs during mistfall. Our bad.
    25:27 Dexter’s Laboratory is a cartoon that follows the adventures of boy-genius Dexter.

    Just uh. Don’t mind me. Just a cactus. Nothing more.

    This week Kiyan and Dylan record a new episode, and specifically ensure that there are no cacti in the room. No guarantees about Eucalyptus though. It’s Meglos, written byJohn Flanagan and Andrew McCulloch. It aired in September and October of 1980.

    We dedicate this episode to Adrienne Corri.

    Show-notes
    00:28 The Cailleach is a Gaelic deity that appears in season 17’s The Stones of Blood.
    07:27 Scene Sync was an advancement of CSO technology used only in this story. It allowed CSO shots to include moving backgrounds. A documentary about the technique, The Scene Sync Story, was included on the DVD release of Meglos.
    08:18 Solfatara is a volcano in Italy whose name is derived from the Latin sulpha terra, or “sulfur earth.” Sorta makes you wonder what Zolfa-Thura smelled like…
    19:00 Goosebumps is a children’s horror book series. The second book in the series, Stay Out of the Basement, features a sentient plant.
    24:35 Eucalyptus is a native Australian tree that’s considered an invasive species in California. Read more about its invasive properties here.
    28:54 Couldn’t find the specific documentary that detailed the Death Star’s inaccurate lasers, but here’s an article with a video that discussed the same thing!

Yes, the title theme is synth, the visuals look totally 80s, and everything is in a new decade. It’s The Leisure Hive, written by David Fisher and aired in August and September of 1980.

    07:49 June Hudson has a rather comprehensive Wikipedia page. Her website contains a portfolio which includes her original concept drawing for Tom’s new costume.
    08:30 Here is an image of Raymond Reddington. If you’re interested in the show (Dylan recommends it), you can get some more information on The Blacklist’s wikipedia page.

    12:28 A comparison image of the Argolans.
    21:50 For reference, here is a screencap from this episode that shows The Fourth Doctor aged 500 years.
    28:34 Tammany Hall was a corrupt political machine that basically ran most of New York in the early 20th century before losing influence when FDR got elected against their wishes. You can get a better overview at Wikipedia.
    41:28 The Doctor Who site has an overview of all of the landings of Tom Yardley Jones’ new TARDIS.

    A, la cite de l’amour. Er… I mean, la cite de la mort. Only fitting that this episode features a lovely birdsong in the background, truly solidifying the love in the air. And what better way to write a serial set in the city of love than to have three writers (David Fisher, Douglas Adams, and Graham Williams) collaborate in writing a serial. Yes, it’s the City of Death, aired in September and October 1979.

    Check out our crossover with Flight Through Entirety, where we talk about English Way of Death!

  • Book Ep. 2: It's Fun to Have Fun Ft. Flight Through Entirety

    10 February 2016 (4:57pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 1 hour, 46 minutes and 16 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    I’ve been told that having fun is pretty great.

    This is a very special episode of Trust Your Doctor. Before I get into that, can I mention how difficult titling this is? “Ft. Flight Through Entirety” is the most space saving way to credit the crossover, but it’s not entirely accurate. We only got two hosts (again) of Flight Through Entirety, although this time it’s Nathan and Richard rather than Nathan and Brendan. It’ll do as a title though, as it is rather representative of the episode anyway. Didn’t I make this same point last time?

    Well anyway, this crossover we talk (yet again) about a Doctor Who novel from the wilderness years. Let me stop you again, and rephrase that a bit more accurately. The hosts attempt to talk about a Doctor Who novel, with…. varying degrees of success. This time it’s The English Way of Death, written by Gareth Roberts and published on the 21st of March, 1996. It was recently republished (in 2015) as part of the Doctor Who History Collection, and you can find that republish on Amazon. The English Way of Death takes place immediately after The Romance of Crime (another Gareth Roberts novel), which takes place between Creature From the Pit and Nightmare of Eden.

    If you want more Flight Through Entirety (let’s be honest, who wouldn’t?), be sure to check them out at their wonderful internet locales below.

    Does Davros count Daleks to fall asleep?

    This week’s episode is brought to you by the color pink. And by pink, I mean PINK, because that frock that Romana wears is straight up bright pink. It contrasts nicely with the cold grey of the Dalek casings. Yes, this week it’s Destiny of the Daleks, written by Terry Nation and aired in September of 1979.

    Apparently Lalla is derived from a Persian word that means “tulip”.

    This is it, ladies and gentleman, the end of the search for the Key to Time. And what better way to end it than with the most divisive serial since The Mutants? Is it good? Is it bad? Well. That’s for you to decide. It’s The Armageddon Factor, written by Bob Baker and David Martin and aired in January and February of 1979.

  • Special 3: The Two Year Anniversary!

    Episode Duration: 19 minutes and 21 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    There’s been an awakening. Have you felt it? It’s in our sanity. As in, we’re losing it.

    We know. Two Years. Some of you have been here for all two of them. Some of you weren’t. That’s ok, we love* you all. No but actually, thank you for listening. We really do appreciate that there are people who sit/stand/walk while listening to two random guys babble on about Doctor Who, or movie trilogies, or whatever we fancy really. We know this episode is a bit “thrown together” you might say, but it’s a nice representation of the years behind and ahead of us. Below I’ve dropped links to all the friends we’ve made this past year, as well as anything else of note. Here’s to another year of laughs!

    *Love is subjective.

    Flight Through Entirety
    A wonderful group of guys from glorious Australia. Last year we discussed Last of the Gadarene with two of their hosts, Brendan and Nathan. You can find that episode here.

    Episode Duration: 37 minutes and 9 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Is anything ever funny for the right reasons?

    This week Kiyan and Dylan face the roughly 4×21 minute ritual of Kroll. It’s really rather simple, you sit through the 4 episode The Power of Kroll serial, take a few notes, and then record a podcast about it. The serial was written by Robert Holmes and aired in December of 1978 and January of 1979.

    This is the kind of alarm clock/timer that Kiyan and Dylan were referring to, in case you were wondering.

    This week Kiyan and Dylan got through David Fisher’s second serial for the show, an arguably much better piece of work. It’s called The Androids of Tara, and it aired in November and December of 1978.

    Dylan is not in the fabric business. Here’s some information on tweed because he doesn’t know how tweed works.
