  • The Sixth Doctor Retrospective

    8 January 2017 (4:57pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 48 minutes and 51 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    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.
    48:24 Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo.

    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)_/-

    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 Vengeance on Varos, 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.

    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.

    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.

    Hey, great idea, let’s use smart cars for mining.

    Moving swiftly through season 22 we come to another divisive serial. If you don’t mind me spoiling for a second, quite a few of the serials this season lead to a divide between Kiyan and Dylan, so brace yourself please. The divide this week: Vengeance on Varos, written by Philip Martin and aired in January of 1985.

    Show-notes:
    1:15 Yeah, he was from Planet of the Spiders. Not sure how I remembered that. Guess you can chalk it up to my unparalleled genius, like usual.
    4:00 Plug.
    34:10 Yeah, I hear they usually just cut people’s heads off over there.

    This week we finally not only finish season 21, but also start the 6th Doctor. Remember last week when we said we predicted the 6th Doctor era to be the most divisive? Well buckle up, it’s the Twin Dilemma, written by Anthony Steven and aired in March of 1984.

    Show-notes:
    4:28 There’s a secret message hidden in The Twin Dilemma
    9:00 More information about the most important part of the serial.

    16:06 There’s speculation as to what’s up with the h, but personally I don’t care. I have more important things to care about. Like which side of the bed I’m going to wake up on tomorrow. Leaning towards the wrong one right now, but you never know.

  • The Fifth Doctor Retrospective

    In hindsight maybe not doing this with Krynoid was why this episode was all over the place.

    Remember how the Fourth Doctor Retrospective was fun? This is… sort of fun? We take a look back at good old Peter Davison, and try to discuss his brief but fun era of Doctor Who.

    Show-notes:
    1:09 Which you can do here. Just saying. Not gonna force you to listen to it or anything. Mainly because I can’t. But you should listen to it.
    9:25 Well maybe it needed to die.
    28:54 Make it happen BBC.
    32:53 Y’know. The cliffhanger-y one. The one where he’s gonna crash the ship. Hold on, I’m trying to find it. Hmm… where is it… Oh, here it is. Sorry about that. Yeah, I really liked this one. Even though it’s a quote unquote cool one.
    37:31 The Life of Pie argument goes states that it’s more fun to eat pie than to do anything else in the world, so it urges people to stop what they’re doing at any time (and every time) to eat pie.
    39:00 Yeah, it’s like a couple hundred thousand if you trust science as well. But I wouldn’t trust science if I were you cause last time I did I woke up in Anchorage wearing only socks and a sombrero.

    And the sequel, Batnipples Forever.

    And here we see the return of one of the greats of Doctor Who writing. Mostly. The Krotons was a bit of a dud, but hey, it was his first serial. This week Robert Holmes returns to write The Caves of Androzani, aired in March of 1984.

    Show-notes:
    0:45 Apparently the reasons date back to medieval times. Figures.
    4:58 And if you don’t know you can look it up yourself. I’m not gonna be the one to let anyone who doesn’t already know about it know about it.
    18:19 Wait, no it wasn’t. -_-
    21:15 Warning: this link is for true underdogs only. Click at your own risk.
    26:16 Melange. The most generic name for a fictional substance possible.
    30:53 More Bowie never hurt anybody. I think. Labyrinth is overrated by the way.
    48:36 Not sure if this is what he was talking about, but this is the first thing that came up when I googled “mars blue.” So good enough for me.
    48:47 Maybe it’s this one, but that’s actually Jupiter.
    48:48 Dylan here, it’s this one. Although I’m not even sure anymore if it’s actually Mars. Word on the street is that it’s just a “landscape.”

    War is the future. War is our destiny.

    This week we get two companion write outs! Two! Although I don’t think Kamelion can really be considered a companion so much as a plot device really. Turlough, on the other hand, one of the most fleshed out characters that’s not The Doctor. It’s Planet of Fire, written by Peter Grimwade and aired in February and March of 1984.

    Show-notes:
    6:17 It’s called Shell Shock in case anyone’s interested.
    29:06 Yeah, kinda.
    39:21 Or black… orchids!!!
    55:01 Here it is. That cloudy sky, that damp vegetation, how it looks like it just rained and is probably gonna start raining again soon… just another typical day in Southern California. :)
    56:20 Oh yeah, these things. I remember those things. They were gross.

    Wow who would have guess that Davros would come back? And who would guess that this serial would basically display genocide? About 6 people made it out of this serial alive. Amazing. It’s Resurrection of the Daleks written by Eric Saward and aired in February of 1984.

    Show-notes:
    1:52 It was because of the 1984 winter Olympics in Sarajevo, Yugoslavia. Interestingly, that was one of the only Olympic games held in a communist country.
    3:33 NECESSARY TECHNOLOGY.
    18:55 Oh bugger.

    Ribbit ribbit. Ribbit? Ribbit ribbit ribbit.

    This week we continue not talking about the serial by talking about Pringles. Did you know Pringles are pretty good? Probably one of the best potato chips. It’s The Awakening, written by Eric Pringle and aired in January of 1984.

    Show-notes:
    0:47 It doesn’t have an apostrophe, so I guess each time you eat Pringles you’re eating a little piece of Pringle.
    7:34 It would probably be curling.
    10:53 Apparently it’s just some spring festival. LAME. What’s more interesting is that it’s tied to International Workers’ Day and groups like Industrial Workers of the World just based on when the holiday is. It’s also related to Beltane, which we saw in The Daemons.
    11:27 Wow, they barely show jack.
    19:49 Maybe one of these days we’ll watch that trilogy for our other podcast, Trout Trip.

  • Episode 133: Napkin of Doom

    28 August 2016 (3:57pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 52 minutes and 55 seconds

    Eating dinner with the napkin of doom makes your meal much more exciting.

    This week Kiyan and Dylan watch a special that appears between seasons and has already caused undue confusion as to how to place this into the episode index. At least it has to Dylan. Yes, it’s the Children in Need special The Five Doctors, which unsurprisingly aired on the 23rd of November, 1983. It was written by Terrance Dicks.

    Show-notes:
    2:32 “Future versions of ourselves” played by Jim and Martin of Krynoid Podcast. Be sure to check them out.
    15:38 So about how much he makes per year.
    15:55 Nope!

    Who thought that a serial with the Master of all characters could be so horribly boring? THE MASTER! And it didn’t help that Terence Dudley has been consistently declining in quality since his first outing. It’s The King’s Demons, written by Terence Dudley and aired in March of 1983.

    Show-notes:
    0:28 We’re talking about the cool Iron Maiden, not the torture device.
    5:40 Thank god I didn’t grow up in the 80s.
    9:38 WOW.
    11:51 Here’s more about beds in the middle ages. I say we all go back to straw. It probably builds character.
    13:27 Apparently it was “rare” to do so. But I say more people should start doing it in real life. It probably builds character.
    20:15 And who you never see again.

    Every planet sends one chef, we decided to send Gordon Ramsey.

    As we draw nearer to the end of the season, we decide to race some ships in outer space. Additionally, we say goodbye to… the Black Guardian, for now that is. It’s the conclusion of the Black Guardian trilogy with Enlightenment, written by Barbara Clegg and aired in March of 1983.

    9:38 Not sure whether this is the right thing cause I was too lazy to read the article.

    31:42 Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmas, which came out in 1999, was Disney’s first Christmas special. 14 years and several thousand complaint letters later, Disney finally released their first Hanukkah movie, Frozen, to critical acclaim. Other Disney holiday specials include The Emperor’s New Groove (Thanksgiving) and Dreamworks’ How to Train Your Dragon (Guy Fawkes Day).
    32:30 Kimba the White Lion was actually a TV show. Many people have noticed that Lion King bears some striking resemblances to it, but what most people don’t know is that Kimba itself was actually based on Disney’s classic 1896 movie Lions 2: Lions.

    My new carpet is purple and definitely not copyright infringing.

    This week we once again learn why Dylan went into Physics and not English. It’s garment. Kiyan was right, Dylan was wrong. Dylan regrets his mistake, and apologizes to all the linguists who we have offended with our podcast. In other news, they try and talk about Terminus, written by Steve Gallagher and aired in February of 1983.

    Liz Shaw was truly the most memorable UNIT member.

    This week’s throwback to earlier serials comes in the form of The Brigadier Allistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart. The one and only, taking over for Ian. Yes, apparently the Brig can teach math? It’s Mawdryn Undead written by Peter Grimwade and aired in February of 1983.

    Show-notes:
    5:47 He uninstalled the randomizer randomiser at the beginning of season 18 in The Leisure Hive.
    8:50 Thing.
    16:27 This list is where the idea comes from. Wonder if anyone’s ever gotten all the way to 90.
    20:26 Just like Cool Whip!
    33:20 Batman gambit. Don’t ask why I know that. Do ask why I don’t know that.

    Only the best snake props in Doctor Who.

    This week Kiyan and Dylan face a snake from the past. Indiana Jones would have been absolutely terrified. He probably would’t even listen to this episode. He’d just read that first line and leave before even finding out what serial it is. It’s Snakedance, written by Christopher Bailey and aired in January of 1983.

    Show-notes:
    2:36 Apparently manussa means “human.” The English word “man” apparently comes from the same Sanskrit root. The more you know.
    5:45 Another Buddhist thingy. More modern English cognates via Proto-Indo-European: “thirst” and “drought.”
    7:40 See the resemblance? You’ll think of this next time you see a Chrysler slithering down the road.
    11:18 Director of Historical Research.
    14:48 Chester Cheetah.
    22:26 And like magic, here it is.
    22:29 Don’t worry, we found it.
    28:09 The “just visiting” space from Monopoly.
