  • Episode 83: And Then There Were Five

    30 April 2013 (7:11pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 1 hour, 54 minutes and 13 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    There's a pretty good chance all of you at home saw a pattern in our last couple episodes, so it should come as no surprise that Episode 83 is "The Five Doctors", celebrating the 20th anniversary of Doctor Who in 1983 (hey, and it's Episode 83, see what we did there!).

    We're joined by our longtime friend Josh "Lord" Zimon of The Memory Cheats and Mostly Harmless Cutaway to discuss this one, although he very nearly got caught up in a time eddy when we scooped him up from Boston.

    And, as usual, we touch a little bit on the latest installment of the current series, "Journey to the Centre [sic] of the TARDIS".

    Check us out on Facebook (it's more volatile than Gallifrey Base sometimes), send us email at tardistavern@gmail.com, follow Sean on Twitter via @tardistavern and follow Josh via @whomejz.

We discuss what was then the show's ten-year anniversary story, back in the day when nerds were precluded from voice their rumors and anticipation on the internet.

    We also talk a little bit about the latest entry to the Doctor Who oeuvre, "Hide". Masterpiece or tangled senseless mess? You just might be surprised what we think.

    Burrowing a little further into the annals of the Fourth Doctor (a phrase we were looking for any excuse to use), we wander towards the end of his tenure, three years past the last time we saw him in "The Robots of Death" to "State of Decay", in which he matches wits with a trio of ancient vampires amidst a crumbling society.

    We also explain why we don't like reviewing Big Finish, and also touch a little - just a tiny little bit - on the latest two episodes, "The Bells of St. John" and "The Rings of Akhaten".

    Direct Podcast Download

    On the eve of the broadcast of "The Bells of St. John's", naturally we couldn't resist not reviewing it. Instead, we go back in time to September of 2011, which broad us such classics as "The Girl Who Waited", "A Good Man Goes to War", and the topic of this episode, the overlooked and often forgotten "Night Terrors".

    Plus there's gossip about the rumors circulating regarding the up and coming release of the JNT biography and the muckraking regarding Matt Smith's leaving the show. And feedback, don't forget the feedback.

    On another night, we will continue to chat about the new series, but will still focus on reviews of older Doctor Who stories, so stay tuned in about a week's time when we will release a short discussion of the first two episodes aired for Series 7B, and a longer discussion of a certain Fourth Doctor story from 1980.

Rather, as promised, we give you a quick review of the video game Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock, some discussion about the upcoming second-half of Series Seven, and (we haven't brought you one of these in a while) an interview with Daphne Ashbrook, star of the 1996 TV movie.

    Special thanks to our own roving reporter Andre Tessier for interviewing Ms. Ashbrook at this year's Gallifrey convention. (Or was it from last year? We were too drunk to tell.)

    To give the impression that there is some rhyme to our reason, Episode 77 just needed to have a story aired in 1977, so there was a smorgasbord of Fourth Doctor and Leela yumminess to choose from.  We like mysteries and we like robots, so naturally we had to turn our sights onto “The Robots of Death”, that madcap little adventure that could be a cross between Alien and a Dick Tracy comic.

    There’s talk of Gallifrey past (I missed you, Steve!) and a hint of feedback (thank you, Dr. Phil!).  And plenty of scotch and vodka, although not mixed together.

    There are two things we learned since recording this podcast.  The first is never to drink while listening or watching the subject matter that you’re going to review.  The second is that we have a soft spot for Big Finish.  We’ve had our stinkers (Red Dawn) and our triumphs (Peri and the Pescon Paradox), so we dipped our fingers into the audio vault once again and pulled out Big Finish’s most recent of its main line of stories, The Wrong Doctors.

    So with that join us as we jump a train to Pease Pottage and visit two Melanie Bushes, two Sixth Doctors (one in blue and the other in his traditional patchwork coat), dinosaurs, and singing septuagenarians.  If that sounds a little confusing, just imagine if you were drunk.

    Direct Podcast Download

    Looks like we survived the end of the world after all.

    When you survive an ordeal like that, there’s nothing like a little dose of Patrick Troughton, so we decided to turn around and talk about what we originally intended: that mostly-missing story of the Second Doctor’s era, “The Web of Fear”.

    Although five of the six episodes were destroyed after someone at the BBC went on a bender and burned a couple dozen reels of old television, you can see the first episode in all its glory in the “Lost in Time” box set.  The remainder is available from BBC audio.

    You can follow us on Facebook, send us hate mail at tardistavern@gmail.com, and follow Sean on Twitter via @tardistavern (Steve has a Twitter account too, but he hasn’t used it since March of 2012 so we won’t go there).  Oh look, rocks!

    There’s some talk about the story, some talk about Nicola Bryant and our inability to revoke the restraining order, and a little bit of talk about the current series that might just make you put your thumb on your chin and go “Hmmm.”

    Insert the usual crap here.  Facebook.  Email.  Twitter via @tardistavern and @tardistaverntit, plus catch John via @digspinach (hehe, it rhymes with “Big Finish”).

    Fresh off of the first half of Series Seven, we just couldn’t get enough of the Eleventh Doctor.  At the behest of our friend Erik from The Doctor Who Book Club Podcast, we watched and discussed “The Big Bang” and “The Pandorica Opens” with him.  For those of you that listen to the very best in Doctor Who podcasting, you may know that Sean and Steve appeared on A Mostly Harmless Cutaway with our other friends Eric and Josh when these episodes first aired.  Have our opinions changed after viewing it again.  Is Erik alone in thinking this two-parter is the bee’s knees?

    As usual, the cocktails flowed freely (at least for two of us, ahem) and we saw a mutual friend of the podcast, Erika (whom you may recall from our “Pertwee Extravaganza” not long ago), and asked her to join the fray.  The result is an hour and 47 minutes of insightful philosophical discussion on the story.  Also, we get really drunk.

    So pour yourself a glass of wine, beer, scotch, vodka, or whatever and sit back and relax as we talk about stuff a whole month after every Doctor Who podcast has already covered.

    We're jumping on the Doctor Who podcast bandwagon and taking a peek at "Asylum of the Daleks" and "Dinosaurs on a Spaceship".

    With Season (er...I mean SERIES) Seven just a couple weeks away, we thought it was time to put our collective heads together with David and Marty from Hoo on Who and talk about our predictions and hopes for the upcoming series.

    Seeing that most of the time all four of us tend to natter on about Classic Who, we thought that you, the good listeners, would like to hear what we think about the current series (aside from Sean's incessant bile regarding the Moff).

    And after that...Sean and Steve jump into Dave and Marty's TARDIS and travel to the titanium bunker for a very, very special crossover episode of Hoo on Who. History is made as we're actually drunker on that podcast than our own!

    Episode Duration: 1 hour, 21 minutes and 47 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Steve has finally joined us from his (turns out) travels from not-so-far-abroad with tales of suspense and intrigue. For the first time since we'd like to remember, it's just the two of your usual humble hosts for this episode...and we all hope, of course, that Steve stays on for quite a while to come.

    Carrying on from Episode 65, in which we discussed "Kinda", we've decided to let things run their natural course and review its sequel, "Snakedance", featuring the Fifth Doctor, Nyssa, and Tegan. Did these reviewers fall under Martin Clunes' devilish charm? Has one of them been influenced a bit too much by the Mara? Can we think of more useless waffling to make this introduction longer? Listen and find out!

    Oh yeah, there's also an interview...stay tuned for more!

    Catch us on Facebook, or follow Sean on Twitter via @tardistavern and Steve via @tardistaverntit (he never checks it, so leave him all the nasty remarks you like!). Also, email us at tardistavern@gmail.com with compliments about the podcast and complaints about Steve's lewd behavior (don't worry, Nicola, the restraining order has been signed).

    Special thanks goes to the talented Curt Watkins with his end of show song CyphaRemix. This mix and many more can be found at Who Mix (http://whomix.trilete.net/?wmid=music).

    Whilst Steve remains in an undisclosed location fighting crime and making the world a better place, Sean holds down the fort still, this time with our old friend Erika and Steven from Radio Free Skaro. Our first idea was to review "The Idiot's Lantern" in view of the diamond jubilee, then we realized this wouldn't be released until July, so you know, fuck that.

    Given free reign to choose a topic, as our guests often do, Erika selected "The King's Demons", much to the chagrin of Steven and the relief of Sean who realized he only had to watch two episodes. Short and sweet? Or does this story just fester like a tiny deer turd on the forest floor. Listen and find out!

    We're back! It's been a while since we've skipped along that old familiar path of classic Doctor Who, what with the current series in limbo and all that, but we're back and happy as ever to bring you our thoughts on the Fifth Doctor story "Kinda".

    Unfortunately, after 64 episodes of Steve-goodness, for the first time ever he was unable to join us. Steve is spending a little time in a monastery, praying or making win or something. Or perhaps he saw "Kinda" before us and just went totally Buddha.

    Nevertheless, we are joined once again by our friend Andre and Hannah, who has provided us with some slamming commentary in the past. So please grab a fork, dig in, and enjoy the new meat!

    "The Unicorn and the Wasp" isn't exactly a conspicuous story, but after churning out three Pertwees and "The Caves of Androzani", it seemed to go down smooth and sweet. In fact, we haven't talked about a Tenth Doctor and Donna since way, way back when we did "Partners in Crime." So enjoy!

    If you're the slightest bit disappointed by this topic, keep listening. Our roving reporter Andre Tessier got to sit down with none other than Eighth Doctor himself, Paul McGann! What do you think he'll have to drink? (Spoiler: red wine.)

    Having took time to detox from February's misadventures and not-so-fresh off of our reviews of the so-called five worst stories of all time, we're joined by Lord Zimon to review the so-called best story of all time, "The Caves of Androzani."

    What happens when you mix scotch with spectrox? Delusions of grandeur or the delightful ecstacy of a time gone by? Listen closely, friends, as we unpeel the laytex mask behind one of Robert Holmes' latest (and perhaps greatest) stories.

    Plus...feedback!

    This past weekend marked the 23rd Gallifrey One convention in Los Angeles and, once again, we attended the festivities with hopes of bringing the fun to those of our listeners who could not make it. We were a bit more successful this year than last year (which was more like The Lost Weekend than a Doctor Who convention), and on Saturday night we hosted an impromptu "live recording" in our room. Free booze was provided, thus attendance was somewhat decent.

    Our guests included our own roving reporter Andre Tessier (@AndreT_NY), Paul and Pete of The Pharos Project podcast (@KungFuYoda and @beastmasterpete respectivley), Nicole (@boozeleprechaun), Sarah (@sourcitruslady), Melissa (@Bellaira), John (Twitter handle unknown at this time, but we bet he has one), our friend Bob from Houston, and our hotel neighbors Miranda and Sam who came crossplaying as the Seventh Doctor and Ace.

    In the coming months we hope to present you with a bit more that we collected from Gallifrey, but for now sit back and relax and listen to our impressions of the first two days.

    Facebook, GetGlue, blah blah blah, you know the drill. Follow us on Twitter at @tardistavern and @tardistaverntit and, as a result of our activities throughout the weekend, we will accept process of service via email at tardistavern@gmail.com.

    On this very, very special of The TARDIS Tavern, we confront Steve once again with his biggest Doctor Who fear: The Third Doctor! We are joined by our good friends Chris Burgess of Radio Free Skaro and podcast newcomer Erika (known for those of you on Twitter as @HollyGoDarkly). We examine not just one but three (yes, three!) Third Doctor stories: "Terror of the Autons," "The Curse of Peladon," and "The Time Warrior."

    Those of you that are longtime listeners may notice that this is one of our longest episodes ever! And after an hour and a half of recording (plus half an hour of pre-show cocktails), some people can hold their liquor better than others. It truly does mark the anniversary of Gallifrey 22! So pull up a pitcher or a cuppa, light a fire or a cigarette, and enjoy...our Pertwee Extravaganza!

    Because we can't talk about Doctor Who all the time, we thought we'd do a complete 180 this time and talk about a different science fiction show that isn't so, um...well, Doctor Who-ee.  Steve has long been ranting and raving about this show called Farscape (1999-2003), so we'd thought we'd give it a spin.  Joining us is our friend David (better known as "Draculasaurus" among fans), who is also a big Farscape fan.  This is, however, the first time for Sean to see a single episode, so listen in as he gets his proverbial cherry popped.

    Please email us at tardistavern@gmail.com, join us on Facebook, follow Sean on Twitter via @tardistavern, Steve via @tardistaverntit, and David via @draculasaurus13.
