  • 279: We Want People to Cry on Christmas (Twice Upon a Time)

    1 December 2019 (4:57pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 58 minutes and 26 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Personally, I make it a rule to cry on every day EXCEPT Christmas.

    Did you ever watch that Disney movie? Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmas? Well fun fact they actually made a sequel, called Mickey’s Twice Upon a Christmas. And every time I watch this episode I think of that movie because the names are so suspiciously similar. I mean, have you ever seen anything else in any media that uses the word “twice” at all? It’s Twice Upon a Time, written by Stephen Moffat and aired on December 25, 2017.

    Don’t knock it till you try it.

    I read a pretty good poem recently, but it wasn’t in any way related to this episode. I just thought it was a good poem. It was called “Go to the Limits of Your Longing.” Rilke wrote it. I highly recommend it. It’s World Enough and Time & The Doctor Falls, written by Stephen Moffat and aired on June 24 and July 1, 2017.

    Show-notes:
    10:59: If you don’t know what Xena: Warrior Princess is, this is what it is.
    11:47: To His Coy Mistress
    16:19: Here’s the actual 12th Doctor intro and here’s the fanmade intro (created by Billy Hanshaw) that it was based on. I like Hanshaw’s version better.
    28:15: Here’s a pretty good article about the whole “Doctor Who” vs. “The Doctor” debate.
    52:26: Metallica’s “One” music video

  • 277: I Dream of Drashigs (The Eaters of Light)

    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 39 minutes and 0 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Even closing my eyes is no escape from the horror that is the drashigs.

    If I could subsist on light, I totally would if I’m being honest. I mean, now that I think about it, that’s kind of what plants do right? They eat light and then they turn it into food and survive. So does that mean the main enemy of this story is a plant? Food for thought. It’s The Eaters of Light written by Rona Munro and aired on June 17, 2017.

    Show-notes:
    2:31: This article from over 10 years ago explains how to dial straight to voicemail using something called “Slydial.” I obviously didn’t try it to see if it still works, but feel free to do so yourself.

  • 276: It’s Me Mickey Mouse! (Empress of Mars)

    10 November 2019 (4:57pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 50 minutes and 38 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Since Disney owns nearly everything I can’t imagine this crossover is far behind.

    Given how many times Mars has appeared on the show it should be pretty easy to assemble some sort of timeline of the Martian Empire right? Also, wasn’t that killer water that killed everything it ever touched in the polar ice caps? The one we learned about in Waters of Mars? Shouldn’t the gang be violently ill and trying to consume each other during almost the entirety of this episode? It’s Empress of Mars, written by Mark Gatiss and aired on June 10, 2017.

    Show-notes:
    4:22: Scratchman was “co-written” by James Goss. And by co-written I mean it was probably mostly written by him.
    4:36: “With exclusive commentary ‘He Did It’ by the Goldman Family”
    21:30: Pretty sure it was Zulu Dawn. And here’s a short description of the Great Emu War from Australian Geographic.
    25:03: Here’s a pretty good (but poorly formatted) list of periods in British history.
    33:28: John Cena’s theme

  • 275: Blink 2017 Edition (Extemis, The Pyramid at the End of the World & The Lie of the Land)

    3 November 2019 (4:57pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 24 minutes and 50 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    As opposed to Blink 2019 edition.

    It’s surprising to me that an episode so clearly about propaganda actually didn’t cause much of a splash at all when it landed. Kind of seems like everyone shrugged and looked right past it, even though it explicitly mentions a few people that this episode is clearly sending up. Weird. It’s Extremis, The Pyramid at the End of the World and The Lie of the Land written by Steven Moffat, Peter Harness, and Toby Whithouse and aired on May 20 and 27 and June 3, 2017.

    Show-notes:
    3:32: The comic is called The World Shapers.
    6:19: In case you don’t remember this prehistoric meme
    39:45: Lol just looked it up, Nebraska doesn’t even border Texas.
    45:21: This was the exact Gandhi quote according to Goodreads. Here’s more stuff Gandhi apparently wrote about fear and love too. And here are some articles that could potentially shed some light on the controversy surrounding Gandhi.

    Direct Podcast Download

    This sounds like a shitty Rocky spinoff.

    Sometimes, when I can’t breathe, I wonder what it would be like if I had to pay for my next breath. Like, if I was dying right now would I be willing to fork over the money required to keep on living? It’s a really interesting thing to think about, but also kind of horrifying. Is your life worth that much? It’s Oxygen, written by Jamie Mathieson and aired on May 13, 2017.

    Show-notes:
    0:30: The “Damn Daniel” meme came out about 3 and a half years ago, possible a little more. Because Internet is a new book from Gretchen McuCulloch, one of the hosts of the Lingthusiasm podcast.
    3:30: It was The Pursuit of Happyness, but as usual I got what it was about wrong.
    7:06: Check out Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast, a new podcast we started to discuss classic sci-fi.

    Sorry entomologists, I really hate to break this to you.

    I always thought it was going to be four knocks, you know? Like, knock knock knock knock. At least that’s what that weird fortune teller told us it was going to be. But I guess the Twelfth Doctor only requires half as many knocks. I wonder what that says about him.  It’s Knock Knock, written by Mike Bartlett and aired on May 6, 2017.

    Show-notes:
    3:35 I think this is the album version of Song for Ten. This is the tv version for comparison. Also I can’t believe the Ballad of the Last Chance Saloon was also officially released.
    4:33 Reach across the stars with our new science fiction podcast Inevitable. We’re watching Star Cops for season 1.

    Direct Podcast Download

    Might be from the radioactive cool whip factory.

    Did you ever notice how it’s always “thin ice” but never “thick ice.” You can never have thick ice, I guess, which is weird since most ice like glaciers are pretty thick. But then again I guess it depends if you measure thick or thin vertically or horizontally. It’s Thin Ice, written by Sarah Dollard and aired on April 29, 2017.

    I can think of worse ways to spend my time.

    I just watched that Joker movie and now every time I see the word Smile I think of that song that tells you to Smile all the time. You know, Smile if you want to, Smile around the world, the B-52s one. I’m pretty sure that’s called Smile too. Wait no hang on that might be Roam. It’s Smile, written by Frank Cottrell Boyce and aired on April 22, 2017.

    Show-notes:
    1:16 The wikipedia page for the City of Arts and Sciences has some pretty good pictures of the real thing.
    23:31 Apparently soylent green is a cookie/wafer thing. Also the movie takes place in a dystopian future where it’s like the best or only food source for a bunch of people.
    29:09 Here’s an example of speed reading words in the same place on the screen.
    40:08 The 100 is a fairly new post-apocalyptic tv series.

Wait, a Doctor, a Pilot, my life growing up was basically wanting to be in Doctor Who. Chris, Chibnall, call me dude I have no agent and I work for exposure.

    Truly, the greatest Doctor Who story of all time.

    There’s been a lot of Christmas on the mind recently. There’s even a Christmas scene in The Pilot, so that’s like three weeks worth of Christmas for us, which is quite overwhelming if we’re completely honest.

    Have you seen Johnny though? He looks like he’s always in Wonderland.

    I’ll be honest, I probably won’t even have one husband in my life. So to hear that River has like, 3 at least, and really 15 if you count all 13 incarnations of the Doctor as different people is really impressive to me. I wonder if they all get along with each other. Pretty sure at least two incarnations of the Doctor don’t. It’s The Husbands of River Song, written by Steven Moffat and aired on December 25, 2015.

    Recently I’ve actually become a bit attached to the crows in my neighborhood. I’ll be moving soon and I’m actually a little sad you know? The crows here just have such friendly personalities I’m going to really miss them. On the flip side, I’ve never actually met a raven, so if you’ve got one you want to share you know where I am.

    I purchased my Morpheus system from 3P Enterprises, and it was delivered in quick time. This is the only good thing I can say about the system. Within one month of purchase I’ve started to hear the Morpheus song, even when I’m in my personal sensory deprivation tank. Two months in and I’ve started to notice monsters in the corner of my eyes. My hands are starting to look and more like lobster claws. My significant other has turned into an orchid. 0/10 would not recommend for skipping sleep, although 10/10 replacement for hallucinogenics.

    Society needs to end.

    Ok let’s take a moment to consider how weird it would be to have a Zygon procreate with a human. Does that create some sort of Zygon-human hybrid? And if they are can they shape shift, do they still have that ability? Or maybe they can’t but if they can’t then what differentiates them from regular humans? This is hurting my head.

    I’m pretty sure we’ve had a really similar title to this before.

    I remember when this episode title was announced a lot of people were convinced that Amy was going to be in this. Because the title bore some superficial resemblance to the Girl Who Waited. Looking at it now that’s kind of a completely baffling assumption, but you know I see where it comes from.

    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 13 minutes and 8 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    I need one of those pictures that shows the faces of people on different drugs with one for memes.

    I’m disconcerted by the pace at which we’re speeding through this season, if I’m being honest. It feels like my life is wizzing past my eyes as I die. It reminds me a lot of season 7, which we did in 4 weeks even though the season itself would have aired over something like 12. Or probably, more, if I’m being honestly I’m not actually sure how long it would have take because I can’t remember if they were airing two episodes a week or one at that point in the show’s history. It’s Under the Lake & Before the Flood, written by Toby Whithouse  and aired on October 3 and 10, 2015.

  • 261: Good Old Pertwee Gunplay (The Magician’s Apprentice & The Witch’s Familiar)

    Everything is a throwback, nothing is original.

    What better time to completely revamp the format for the podcast than a moment in the show when absolutely nothing changed in the show? It makes total and complete sense to me, I’m actually not being facetious right now at all. Less things that the audience has to adjust to, you know? It’s The Magician’s Apprentice & The Witch’s Familiar, written by Steven Moffat and aired on September 19 and 26, 2015.

    Show-notes:
    4:51 Sonic screwdriver count. And death count. And character kill count. Due for an update like everything on our site.
    6:10 The Morphos were from Keys of Marinus.
    7:12 Footage of Getting Over It. Weird that the guy who made this is named Bennet like one of the characters in this episode. Also Frog Fractions should still be playable on this page if you have flash player I think.

    Now for the Trust Your Doctor Code. Five words: The Rock is The Doctor.

    For once we can say we have a special “Christmas in July” episode of Trust Your Doctor. Because by some weird coincidence this goes out right near the end of July. Not quite on the 25th, or in the middle either, but it’s close enough. Is this the closest that Doctor Who has ever come to a Christmas in July? I’d like to think so and because of that I’m claiming the first for Trust Your Doctor. It’s Last Christmas, written by Steven Moffat and aired on December 25, 2014.

    Who interrogates soldiers? The Hague?

    Danny Pink you’re charged with war crimes, killing innocents, and committing genocide post mortum. We would dishonorably discharge you, but you seem so hell bent on being a soldier that we thought a more fitting punishment would be to just do nothing to you. You’ll forever be a soldier.

    I think cockroaches are susceptible to pretty much any other form of death though.

    Do cockroaches actually live in forests? I was just thinking now, since London is a forest now, does that mean all the cockroaches are dead? Or did they just decide “hey what the hell let’s throw a party, the world just became 100% more habitable for us last night!” Stay tuned… It’s In the Forest of the Night, written by Frank Cottrell Boyce and aired on October 25, 2014.

    Have you ever met a kind hearted Ogron?

    I’m imagining this as a sort of kids story in the Doctor Who universe for Time Lord children. They sit down because the Ogrons are some sort of myth, and then there’s a very nice Ogron who breaks away from society to be better than everyone else. I’m tearing up just at the thought of it.

    Now hang on hear me out on this…

    Did you know the office where we record these episodes is right next to a train track? We usually luck out, it’s pretty rare that a train will pass while we record. It was more common when we recorded Zenith and TYD back to back, but it’s pretty rare now. Which I only mention because if there was ever a single episode, one single episode, that would have been pretty funny if the train actually did drive by on, it would have been this one. And you know, weirdly enough, it didn’t. It’s Mummy on the Orient Express, written by Jamie Mathieson and aired on October 11, 2014

    Show-notes:
    9:39 I couldn’t find the picture I was talking about, but I did find this other picture of Thomas Pynchon’s hand coming out of the darkness and doing the peace sign. In what looks like a reenactment of A Shocking Accident by Graham Green. Or maybe it’s a scene out of a Pynchon book. Or something else. I don’t know.
    15:28 I still can’t find out who this guy is, what else he’s been in, his name, or anything else about him. Please help.

    I’m kind of surprised the US only sent up 100 nukes. That’s like 0.0001% of their arsenal.

    In the continuing saga of “What the hell even is British English” I’ve gone and found out that a caretaker actually is a janitor. In fact, the dictionary explicitly lists “janitor” as a synonym for “caretaker.” Although I will refrain from mentioning what dictionary I used, for fear of drawing ire from the few english majors who listen. It’s Kill the Moon, written by Peter Harness and aired on October 4, 2014

    Show-notes:
    29:26 The San Andreas is a fault is a transform fault in California. When people talk about “the big one” happening in California, they’re talking about how the San Andreas is inevitably going to destroy everything beyond recognition and kill thousands if not millions.

    Honestly I still want to know why the Trade Federation cheaped out on making more.

    I actually just realized, right now, while typing this summary, that I don’t know what a caretaker is. Based on this episode I always assumed it was like, the UK version of a janitor, which is what we’ve got over here in the colonies. But maybe it’s more specialized. More research is required… stay tuned. It’s The Caretaker, written by Gareth Roberts and Steven Moffat and aired on September 27, 2014

    If Trust Your Doctor was committing a heist, what would we be stealing? I would have to imagine it would be something incredibly pointless, just to say that we could. Something like a 2×4 piece of wood from the local lumber yard. Those places have major security! This is would have to be the greatest heist of all time. It’s Time Heist, written by Steve Thompson and Steven Moffat and aired on September 20, 2014

    6:39 Malcolm Tucker from The Thick of It. Don’t worry, this video is 100% appropriate for children. Also, I had no idea Veep was inspired by a British show.
    7:30 More totally child-friendly content courtesy of Gordon Ramsay.

    Have you ever been to an upmarket restaurant? I have, twice, to this very upscale very fancy Mexican place. Anyway that’s not related to the fact that I was going to ask, how much of a pain do you think it is to work there? You get all these rich people coming in, acting all entitled because they’re paying so damn much for the food. People like Danny and Clara.

    The fourth sequel to the Step Up series.

    I was really hoping that this would be episode 250 but none of the numbering worked out for it to be so. I guess episode 250 is just awkwardly going to be the second episode of this season, which would probably bother some people but I’m pretty unconcerned.

    Direct Podcast Download

    Well bloody hell I have nothing witty to say about 11.

    I really genuinely thought that for a while Deep Breath would be Episode 250 of the podcast. Of course, I had forgotten at the time that we don’t number retrospectives, and hence this episode wasn’t going to be Episode 249. Which means that Episode 250 won’t actually fall on any sort of important episode, but is instead going to fall on the random Into the Dalek episode. Honestly really bummed about that but I can’t do anything about it at this point.

    Show-notes:
    9:04 It wasn’t Neil Cross. I actually can’t remember/find who it was who wrote a Doctor Who episodes never having watched an episode. Like we mentioned, Pip and Jane Baker for sure. Also probably most of the writers for season 1 like Terry Nation.

    Doctor Who has an illness and Doctor Chibnall is here to solve it.

    And so the clock has run out. Like just totally. It’s not 11, it’s not 12, it’s just dead. Hands fell off. and nobody knows how to make clocks anymore since we all use digital clocks so I haven’t really been able to get it fixed. Bit of a bummer, you know that saying that a broken clock is right twice a day? Well turns out that only applies if your clock actually has hands. It’s The Time of the Doctor, written by Steven Moffat and aired on December 25, 2013.

    Show-notes:
    8:40 Still in production.
    11:20 The Five(ish) Doctors is a short docu-mockumentary that follows Peter Davison, Sylvester McCoy, and Colin Baker trying to be part of the 50th anniversary episodes.
    20:27 Here’s the video I was referring to, “How Chibnall Killed Doctor Who.” I haven’t watched it though. I just keep seeing it on youtube and it probably has such good SEO cause of the clickbait title.
    1:05:00 Complete Menagerie and Reality Bomb are two other Doctor Who Podcasts.
    1:13:14 The episode is called Nightmare at 20,000 feet.

    I’m pretty sure electric peeps would suck even worse than normal peeps.

    You know, we kind of have experience with dealing with something we like to pretend doesn’t exist. It’s called Trust Your Doctor, Episode 1. We even rerecorded it like 5 years later, and then literally replaced it in the podcast feed so no one would see the original version. Kind of like our version of the War Doctor. Except you can still totally find episode 1. As if I’d tell you where though. It’s Name of the Doctor, written by Steven Moffat and aired on May 18, 2013.

    Show-notes:
    18:20 According to Paul’s Unofficial Letterbox Pages, “Most houses in Britain have a letter box in the front door, usually a simple slot with a flap over it, through which the post is delivered each morning.” No mention of personal mailboxes outside people’s houses like you see in the states.
    21:25 And thus the essence of all crime is undivulged.
    20:19 I think the only thing I’ve linked to more than this River Song timeline is the asteroid/meteor/meteorite differences table thing from nasa.

    What ever happened to Quicksilver anyway?

    In about twenty years I’m hoping to buy Disneyland. Why, you might ask? Because I want to rebuild it in our image. I want to build an entire Trust Your Doctor themed theme park. We’ll have the Aztecs land, where we just have people walk around dressed as Tegana. And then there’ll be the Koquillian cosplayers and… It’s Nightmare in Silver, written by Neil Gaiman and aired on May 11, 2013.

    Show-notes:
    6:54 The Quicksilver secene in X Men Days of Future Past is an instant classic. The knockoff followup in Apocalypse is just embarrassing in comparison.
    8:36 Check our our nearly dead Blake’s 7 podcast Zenith. Actually it’s on life support, barely hanging on thanks to us constantly mentioning it on Trust Your Doctor.
    10:10 The rides in Wonder Park look really safe.
    12:32 Footage of Six Flags New Orleans
    13:50 It was The Silver Turk, released in 2011.
    15:18 Fool’s mate can be done in just 4 moves (2 turns on each side).

    One day we’ll be able to prove that, but not today.

    When we recorded this there was a bout a 15 minute period where we just got paralyzed with fear. Turns out the Crimson Horror is the lobster we bought as a pet for the podcast. Of course, we’re only ever in the recording room once a week so the poor guy didn’t get much socialization. You might think he died, well actually he just came up with a extremely convoluted plan to overthrow the podcast. It’s The Crimson Horror, written by Mark Gatiss and aired on May 4, 2013.

    Show-notes:
    0:31 Damn my past self for asking me to link to this.
    1:53 Last year Ahmed Best revealed he almost killed himself over the backlash against his role as Jar Jar. We discussed some of the reasons against the backlash years ago on our movie trilogy podcast Triple Play.

    How many things has Elon invented now?

    Trust Your Doctor is a complex beast. We record in an office so sparse and huge it’s comparable to the TARDIS itself. We even have a whole room just singularly dedicated to cotton candy. Like. It’s just walls and walls of cotton candy machines. That’s all that’s in there. This is a 100% true fact. It’s Journey to the Center of the TARDIS, written by Steve Thompson and aired on April 20, 2013.

    Show-notes:
    0:37 The Rock was actually in the sequel to the 2008 Journey to the center of the Earth, Journey 2: The Mysterious Island.
    1:19 Michael Caine on Jaws: The Revenge: “No [I haven’t seen it]. But I have seen the house it bought for my mum. It’s fantastic.”

    14:09 Challenger was the one in 1986 that blew up when it took off. Columbia was the one that blew up when it was coming back in 2003.
    25:22 Not gonna link the 2018 Slender man trailer again. That thing gave me nightmares last week. Instead have this harmless wikipedia link.

    Nooo, not the floral print, please, not the floral print!

    The other day we were recording the podcast and then suddenly discovered that our recording studio is haunted. We’re currently being haunted by our great-great-great-great-grandchildren. Weirdly enough they’re still doing a podcast that far in the future. If you all wanted to know when Doctor Who would end, I can tell you it doesn’t end before our descendants get their grubby hands all over our podcast. It’s Hide, written by Neil Cross and aired on April 20, 2013.

    Show-notes:
    1:30 Neil Cross’ only ongoing show is Luther. I thought his other show Hard Sun was still ongoing but it’s not.
    2:22 Omega tried to harness the power of antimatter in Arc of Infinity.
    5:11 Here’s all the other stuff Jessica Raine and Dougray Scott have been in.
    6:02 Horace Walpole wrote the Castle of Otranto.
    12:27 Next time I have any problem, big or small, supernatural or not, I know who I’m gonna call.
    18:20 Check out our Blake’s 7 podcast Zenith.
    20:10 Truth or Dare is a recent horror movie from Blumhouse. And yeah the characters in it are really dumb.
    21:31 Here’s the blog post that maps out all the references to Cumbria.
    36:25 The projector scene from the new It.
    40:59 Slender Man was a meme horror character from like 5-10 years ago. There was a Slender Man movie last year (warning: the link is to an official trailer with some scary shit in it, watch at your own risk).
    45:43 It was Monster of Peladon.
    53:18 Playing in the Dark
    54:51 Time dilation sounds like some complicated shit.
    55:31 Must suck to be Sarah Winchester. (Disclaimer: I didn’t actually read any of this page)

    Only true Duran Duran fans listen to this podcast.

    You know, sometimes I wonder how hard it must have been if you were an American or British spy and you were sent into Russia. You have to spend months, if not years, learning Russian, and then you have to perfect it to the point where you have basically no accent at all. And then if you do have an accent, well, good luck buddy you’ll probably get shot on sight. It’s Cold War, written by Mark Gatiss and aired on April 13, 2013.

    Show-notes:
    1:38 The Seeds of Death was in season 6, The Seeds of Doom was in season 13.
    10:38 Ronald Reagan: 1981-1989. George H.W. Bush: 1989-1993. Bill Clinton: 1993-2001.
    11:30 It was Yuri Andropov.
    16:16 We (I) got some stuff wrong here, but wikipedia has a pretty good article on Japanese holdout. Hiroo Onoda is probably the most famous.
    17:00 We also do a movie trilogy podcast called Triple Play.
    19:30 According to Manatee-World, manatees can’t live in water below 60 degrees Fahrenheit, so there aren’t any arctic manatees.
    25:17 It looks like Sony still makes the Walkman as an mp3 player.
    34:37 Images of the Cold War playset.
    43:17 According to imdb, Jenna Coleman was born on 27 April 1986, making her 32 right now. Her bio doesn’t mention anything about her early life that would be linguistically interesting, so I don’t know what, if anything, is up with her accent.

  • Episode 240: Russell “Rose Tyler” Davies

    24 February 2019 (4:57pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 59 minutes and 52 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    How many Rose Tyler jokes can we make before this gets old?

    If you believe the fan theory that Doctor Who is just based on someone going back in time and reconstructing what the episodes should look like based on our podcast then by that theory our podcast represents not only how Doctor Who is, but how it could have been, how it should have been, and how it wasn’t. We literally represent every possible timeline of Doctor Who, right here in this podcast. Hey if it Stephen Moffat can do it so can I. It’s The Rings of Akhaten, written by Neil Cross and aired on April 7, 2013.

    Show-notes:
    0:56 I’m guessing this is other Russel Davies.
    1:49 Dwayne The Rock Johnson (a.k.a. the Fourteenth Doctor) usually eats like a week’s worth of food on Sundays.
    2:19 The other shows Neil Cross writes/wrote for.
    11:37 One’s near a church, the other’s not. That’s it.
    18:50 This is the billionth time I’ve linked to this chart and I have become exceedingly efficient at it.
    20:44 it was the Dogon people from Mali, actually in West Africa.
    33:48 The Hath.
    57:07 Unicron is a planet-sized Transformer.
    57:40 I actually miss Blake’s 7 and the podcast we made about it, Zenith.

    Who could have seen that coming?

    I’m actually pretty sure the first time I saw this episode I thought Moffat was really clever for the whole “bells of St. John” thing. And you know, I still do. On the other hand though, he’s aware enough to make a joke about it, but where did the St. John’s Ambulance logo go during all those years between like 1970-something and now? In universe the exterior design of the TARDIS isn’t supposed to change so… where dit that logo go? It’s The Bells of St. John, written by Stephen Moffat and aired on March 30, 2013.

    Show-notes:
    4:31 Neuralink is the company Elon Musk started to create real Cybermen. And no, he doesn’t live in the house he was born in. Lol.
    8:10 BBC article about how American accents resemble the British accents of a couple hundred years ago.
    12:33 Summer Falls was actually published as an ebook.
    22:17 National Geographic footage of a deep-sea squid interacting with bombs.
    23:03 A painting by Banksy was put up for auction a few months ago and was shredded as soon as it was sold.

    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 7 minutes and 54 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Mary Poppins? Now there’s a name I have not heard in a long time.

    Ding dong, turns out Christmas is here again, in February! Hasn’t Christmas just passed? Like, two months ago, or not even. A month a week, on this podcast anyway. That’s kind of weird, I’d say this is the shortest period between two Christmas Specials, but during the 12th Doctor’s Era we get two in a row, which naturally has to be the shortest possible period. It’s The Snowmen, written by Stephen Moffat and aired on December 25, 2012.

    Show-notes:
    20:13 The Artful Dodger sounds like kind of a sketch guy.
    32:23 Apparently Russell T. Davies is actually a pseudonym and as far as I can tell the “T” doesn’t stand for anything. His real name is is Stephen Russell Davies. The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction says he added the T to avoid confusion with another Russell Davies.
    32:32 The children’s show I was talking about here was Century Falls, which came out i 1993. I think I was mixing up the characters with another Russel T. show, Bob & Rose, which has a character named Rose Cooper. I’ve never watched either of these shows, so I could be wrong about this.
    33:41 Full text of How Watson Learned the Trick and The Hound of the Baskervilles.
    52:27 The hardest Sherlock Holmes story to solve in my opinion is The Boscombe Valley Mystery. The other stories we mentioned here were The Six Napoleons and The Blue Carbuncle.
    57:35 Miss Marple is one of the most famous female fictional detective.

  • Episode 237: Walmart Wilf

    3 February 2019 (4:57pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 19 minutes and 25 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    On the prowl for dangerous criminals it’s Leadworth’s latest superhero…. Walmart Wilf!

    I typically don’t shop at Walmart. I’m honestly just too lazy to drive that far, like it’s definitely not the closest department store to me. I haven’t done the math, but I’m pretty sure the extra cost of gas spent in driving to Walmart would outpace the money I’d save spending it there instead of anywhere closer. Now I’m wondering, are there any Walmarts in New York? Let alone Manhattan? It’s The Angels Take Manhattan, written by Stephen Moffat and aired on September 29, 2012.

    Show-notes:
    2:34 Frederick Law Olmstead was some guy who designed Central Park. I’m sure he wasn’t that important.
    10:38 The Angel’s Kiss was a prequel to Melody Malone: Private Detective in Old New York Town that was actually published as a book and audio book. The Hardy Boys is a series of detective stories for kids.
    11:59 Project Gutenberg is a great site for getting public domain stories. Standard Ebooks is the site that standardizes them “for the true book lover.”
    13:12 The Golden Compass a.k.a. Northern Lights is another book for kids. I watched the movie version of this when it came out like 10+ years ago and all I remember was that there was a pretty badass polar bear.
    14:27 Philip Marlowe is yet another fictional detective. Philip Marlowe vs. The Hardy Boys when?
    17:06 The storyboarded version of Brian learning about the events of this episode is online here.
    17:15 Tom Baker finally published Doctor Who Meets Scratchman as a novel. There’s a even a video of Baker himself lovingly providing a sneak preview of the book (which is already out but yeah).
    32:12 Triple Play is a podcast where we discuss movie trilogies and stuff.
    39:15 We even discussed the amazing Troll trilogy (Troll, Troll 2, and Contamination .7)
    40:03 Here’s all the Sting/Police songs we mention (also Oingo Boingo is a thing): Every Breath You Take, Don’t Stand So Close to Me
    43:31 The wiki doesn’t list anyone else as playing Rory, so it was probably Arthur Darvill.

    Can anyone find Cronus? Zeus needs to be put in a time out.

    You know, Doctor Who really likes to tell us how many people is the right number, and it turns out it’s three. Which means that our podcast is one man short, and that further means that only our crossovers are “correct” in Doctor Who’s eyes. But you know, I don’t think either of us really care. It’s The Power of Three, written by Chris Chibnall and aired on September 22, 2012.

    Show-notes:
    19:28 SIDRAT made its first appearance in The War Games.
    23:26 If you don’t know, they served McDonald’s at the White House recently thanks to the government shutdown.
    23:53 Wikipedia actually has a a couple good lists of American shows that were British first and British shows that were American first.

    Better watch out, the opinion police are coming!

    Continuing and then abruptly ending our reboot of season 1 of Doctor Who, is the second story of the seasons. We only ever intended to do these two, since we figured, who the bloody hell wants to listen to an episode about Edge of Destruction anyway? If anything, you’ll listen to An Unearthly Child (because it’s the start) and The Daleks (because… it’s the daleks?) and then give up. So here it is, The Daleks, written by Terry Nation and aired in December 1963 through Freburary 1964.

    Show-notes:
    3:08 According to the Blake’s 7 wiki, Terry Nation did write Aftermath.

    Oh boy I can already see the debate coming.

    Welcome… To Jurassic Spaceship! We’ve spared no expense. This spaceship is made of solid stone, through and through. Couldn’t really afford steel you know, so we went along with this pumice we found lying near that definitely inactive volcano. A few workers walked off the job, never to be seen again, which is kind of weird because we paid them really well, you know? It’s Dinosaurs on a Spaceship, written by Chris Chibnall and aired on September 8, 2012.

    Show-notes:
    2:02 I’m pretty sure this is the exact documentary I watched 10 years ago. Looks like they made a sequel to it a few years ago.
    3:44 The robots in this were in Mission: 2110.
    16:44 4D Rubik’s Cube.
    25:09 According to the Doctor Who Wiki the robot voices and operators weren’t the same people.
    27:26 Naked and Afraid is survival reality show or whatever. I haven’t watched it but it looks pretty bad.
    46:24 Godzilla King of Monsters will be out this year, reserve your tickets now.

    Damn, guess I’m Davros now.

    Alright brace yourselves. Trying to wrap your head around the continuity behind the Daleks in this episode might just drive you mad. Why are there new paradigm Daleks mixed with old ones? Where did they even come from I thought they all died off before Victory? And why do the Daleks have a freaking asylum? It’s Asylum of the Daleks, written by Stephen Moffat and aired on September 1, 2012.
