  • 255: We Can’t Just Ignore the Nukes (Kill the Moon)

    16 June 2019 (3:57pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 56 minutes and 54 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    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.
    46:55 Alternate reality games

    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

  • Episode 253: Recycle Binned His Memories

    2 June 2019 (3:57pm GMT)

    Direct Podcast Download

    Reduce, reuse, recycle those braincells.

    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

    Show-notes:
    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.
    10:05 Apparently Matrix code was created from recipes out of a Japanese cookbook.
    16:51 Great intro sequence though.
    17:41 Check out Triple Play, our movie trilogy podcast.
    24:05 Dark Phoenix can’t be worse than The Last Stand, right?
    41:34 Me thinking about how long a weekly Calvin & Hobbes podcast would take (the last panel).
    47:28 Both Blake’s 7 in Character and Making Blake’s 7 are great sources of knowledge about Blake’s 7.

    Direct Podcast Download

    Well this is the worst disco I’ve ever been to!

    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. Who once again you have to wonder where they got the money for this dinner. It’s Listen, written by Steven Moffat and aired on September 13, 2014

    Show-notes:
    2:43 The Mark of the Rani is the first Rani story and Time and the Rani is the second. Classic Pip & Jane Baker stories.
    4:00 Here are some of Jaden Smith’s best tweets.

    All gather around as Sir Robin shoots this Apple off my head.

    We use an Apple laptop to record this podcast, did you know that? Other podcast have fancy desktop systems, but what we lack in CPU power we gain in portability. We could literally record anywhere. In fact we’ve had semiserious discussions about recording this podcast in a car. Like an actual moving motor vehicle. Stay tuned. It’s Robot of Sherwood, written by Mark Gatiss and aired on September 6, 2014.

    Direct Podcast Download

    It is.

    We need to look inside ourself this week. Like deep inside, to the parts ourselves that we never show to the light. Where the cobwebs are. Where my little spider friend Steve lives, killing any flies that make their way in. Hey Steve, hope you’ve been having a good time in there. Nice cobwebs! It’s Into the Dalek, written by Steven Moffat and Phil Ford and aired on August 30, 2014.

    Show-notes:
    3:54 According to the Doctor Who Podcast alliance, our total runtime is 16 days, 12 hours, 50 minutes, 42 seconds.
    6:41 I meant Evil of the Daleks . The Doctor actually names the Daleks Alpha, Beta, and Omega in this one.
    17:25 Check out Zenith, our Blake’s 7 podcast.
    21:35 Apparently World of Goo is a video game from like 10 years ago.

    5 May 2019 (3:57pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 1 minutes and 11 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    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. I’m bummer, to be sure, but nothing more than that. It’s Deep Breath, written by Steven Moffat and aired on August 23, 2014.

  • The Eleventh Doctor Retrospective

    28 April 2019 (3:57pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 53 minutes and 34 seconds

    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.
    17:55 It’s called trainwrecking.
    19:45 Check out our Blake’s 7 podcast, Zenith.

    Direct Podcast Download

    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.
    1:13:39 Goosebumps is a horror book series for kids. And yes, the movies have Jack Black in them.

    We’re out of it now.

    This week Kiyan and Dylan finally put the first 50 years of the podcast to rest. I mean the first 50 years of Doctor Who. Same thing in the end, really, when you think about it. The podcast has existed as long as the show has, didn’t you know that? I thought it was common knowledge but I suppose there is a possibility that it wasn’t. Well now you know. It’s The Day of the Doctor, written by Steven Moffat and aired on November 23, 2013.

  • Episode 246: Do Androids Dream of Electric Peeps?

    7 April 2019 (3:57pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 2 minutes and 41 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    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.
    25:08 Arrival is a movie about alien linguistics.

    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.

    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.

    Direct Podcast Download

    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.

    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)
    59:15 Thomas Pynchon may be a secretive reclusive, but he lent his voice to The Simpsons at one point.

    Direct Podcast Download

    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.

    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.

  • Episode 238: More Deadly than Mary Poppins

    10 February 2019 (4:57pm GMT)
    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.

    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.
    7:09 Check out our Blake’s 7 podcast Zenith.

    This town aint big enough for more than one podcast. And we all know which podcast that is. That’s right. It’s Triple Play. Not enough space around here for Triple Play as well as Trust Your Doctor, and since Triple Play is obviously the better podcast we’re shutting this one down. Just kidding. I think.

    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.

    Everyone knows how to make lemonade right?

    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Well, sort of. This episode awkwardly gets plopped between the two but, close enough. And we’re even talking about a Christmas episode, can you believe that? Pretty sure this will never happen again until 2020 at least if they air one we can watch live. Otherwise, savor the moment. It’s The Doctor, The Widow and the Wardrobe, written by Stephen Moffat and aired on December 25, 2011.

    Show-notes:
    1:46 Last Christmas is actually by Wham. Now we know who to thank for performing the worst Christmas song of all time.
    2:17 Fairytale of New York isn’t from a musical, but according to Wikipedia it’s the most played Christmas song of the 21st century in the UK and also considered by many to be the best Christmas song of all time. Good thing we found out a while ago that opinions can be wrong.
    6:32 Aslan is Turkish for lion according to Wikipedia.

    Look out Steven, we’re coming for you.

    You’ll never believe what happened to us while we were recording this episode. Dylan received a phone call from someone desperately trying to stop us recording. Turns out, our podcast recording last week was a fixed point in time, and the attempt to stop us recording caused the entirety of the space time continuum to fall apart. We put it back together, so you wouldn’t have noticed anything except now it seems the sky is a weird shade of blue. We’re sorry about that, it seems we weren’t quite able to get it back to it’s original yellow. It’s The Wedding of River Song, written by Steven Moffat and aired on October 1, 2011.

    Show-notes:
    5:40 Parts of the Millennium Bridge is made out of aluminum

    Bring back yippie honestly. Best Character 2k11.

    The biggest disappointment in this episode is that the song “Closing Time” is nowhere to be seen anywhere in this story. It’d be perfect, you know? It’d be that exact thing that Kiyan hates, kind of like that time they used “Iron Man” in the movie, Iron Man. It’s Closing Time, written by Gareth Roberts and aired on September 24, 2011.

    Show-notes:
    8:56 Three Men and A Baby is a 1987 movie directed by Leonard Nimoy of all people. I couldn’t find any info on whether Two and Half Men was named after or influenced by this movie.
    9:32 We listened to the Spare Parts audio last year with Krynoid Podcast. It’s supposed to be the Cyberman origin story.
    13:50 Both IMDB and Colin Baker’s official site(?) say that he was in Shakespeare plays.

I actually don’t think I am now that I think about it. Close enough. I’ll have to look at Steven Moffat for more examples I guess. It’s The God Complex, written by Toby Whithouse and aired on September 17, 2011.

    1:27 Tension and release is a pretty big tenet of comedy in general and has a history of theory behind it. This article puts at least some if it in perspective.

    Good lord, I don’t think I’ve ever thought of that until now.

    This week we locked ourselves in a plain white room to record. It actually kind of sucked, because I usually zone out looking at my keyboard when we record these things. Kind of like entering a podcasting metastate, but that’s ok. We figured it out. Might switch to this plain white room approach for every episode moving forward. It’s The Girl Who Waited, written by Tom McRae, and aired on September 10, 2011.

    This week Kiyan and Dylan make it to the mid season finale, finally! The next half of the season is going to run much slower than this half, mainly because it’s all one parters, so it’ll take us until Christmas to get through it.

    26:00 Born of Man and Woman by Richard Matheson. Ignore the “commentary” on the site and just read the story.

    Verbose – Adj. Using or expressed in more words than are needed.

    Kiyan and Dylan are now recording using remote bodies! This is the technology of the future, and we have it right now! Not gonna lie, this is a bit weird. I can’t feel my fingers anymore.

    I have more questions than answers right now.

    21:01 Red Dwarf is yet another British tv show that people have also recommended to us.

    58:41 Michael Pickwoad did all of Peter Capaldi’s Tardis interiors and Matt Smith’s second one.

    That’s pretty smartly brah.

    Arrrrrr mateys. This week we’re here for a special pirate themed episode of Trust Your Doctor, where we do absolutely none of the following: Neglect to bathe for a month, talk like a pirate in broken english, use strange pirate slang that fell out of use years ago, neglect to shave for years on end.

    1:52 Henry Avery stole from a Mughal fleet in 1695.
    5:53 Klaus Badelt
    7:50 It might’ve been quicker to look him up in the phone book, but it wouldn’t have been as cool.

    America, heck yea! Censored for unsafe eyes.

    This week we finally officially properly start Series 6. Last week kind of counted because it was produced as part of the same thing, but this week is like, the actual thing you know? And! We get to go to America, that’s pretty cool right? It’s The Impossible Astronaut and Day of the Moon, written by Steven Moffat and aired on April 23 and 30, 2011.

    Show-notes:
    6:10 The 1981 version with really awkward music video.
    11:05 Maybe we’ll cover Space 1999 once we finish our Blake’s 7 podcast, Zenith. Maybe.
    17:52 Tuesday is a 1991 children’s picture book about werid crap happening on Tuesday.
    26:55 Star Trek The Original Series ran from 8 September 1966 to 3 June 1969. Apollo 11 launched on 16 July, so Star Trek was already off the air.

    Ran into The Doctor yesterday. She told me not to expect any consistency in Chibnall’s era either.

    Ding dong here come the Christmas bells. The Christmas horses. Reindeer. Ok look Christmas is hard to try shove into this description so I’m just gonna give up. Unlike Kiyan I actually like Christmas though. It’s A Christmas Carol, written by Steven Moffat and aired on December 25, 2010.

    Only on Doctor Who would you find someone with the middle name Danger.

    This week things go sideways. Like, really sideways. But also it goes upside down and in reverse and crooked. And all those non forward directions that Stephen Moffat loves so much. It’s The Pandorica Opens and The Big Bang, written by Stephen Moffat and aired on June 19 and 26, 2010.

    Show-notes:
    1:16 The Mill did the effects for this.
    13:57 Here’s the paper about the neural network.
    27:46 The Borg are a Star Trek villain. Borg is actually a misspelling of “Bored,” cause they’re the most bored race in the universe.
    41:28 Aunt Lavinia was Sarah Jane’s biological aunt.

    Closets hold a lot of skeletons honestly. Or at least, mine do.

    James Corden is actually a pretty funny guy. I think because Gordon Ramsey is a chef I confused him with James Corden, somehow, even though their names are literally nothing alike. At all. I must be really dense honestly, because that’s completely bizarre. It’s The Lodger, written by Gareth Roberts and aired on June 12, 2010.

    Show-notes:
    1:41 The comic version is also called The Lodger.
    10:23 Good on the wiki for using a picture that somehow makes Kronos look cool.
    32:58 It was The Hopes and Fears of All the Years, which we covered like 9 months ago.

    E-space kind of sucked tho so I’ll give him a pass for trying to escape.

    I looked up how to paint once. But it was really difficult and kind of expensive and so I decided it would be better to look up how to digitally paint since I already had photoshop. But then I found out that it’s easier with one of those art tablets so I gave up on that too and started a podcast. It’s Vincent and the Doctor, written by Richard Curtis and aired on June 5, 2010.

    Show-notes:
    9:48 Vincent and Theo is a 1990 movie. Wonder who ok-ed that poster.
    15:10 Apparently it is pronounced “Nye.”
    18:43 The Musee d’Orsay is indeed in Paris.
    21:55 The “Van Gogh only sold 1 painting in his lifetime” thing has been called into question. Some people say he sold more. Some say he only sold the one – The Red Vineyard. There are plenty of theories out there, and we’ll probably never know how many he really sold for sure.
    32:42 Fun fact we had the bipolar to manic depressive in reverse, it used to be called manic depressive and now it’s called bipolar. Basically, “manic depressive” has bigger negative connotations than “bipolar,” so the DSM officially changed the name in the 80s. Also, DSM stands for Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.
    48:22 Can’t believe I actually found the blog post again.

    Hey look we’re bringing back the Silurians. You all know the Silurians right? They appeared a whole two times! Which is actually less than Sabalom Glitz. And when you really think about that, you have to ask yourself, why are we bringing them back? It’s Hungry Earth & Cold Blood, written by Chris Chibnall and aired on May 22 and 29, 2010.

    Show-notes:
    4:42 The Kola Superdeep Borehole is over 7 miles deep but only 9 inches across.
    12:42 I would hate to be a Predator if it means seeing like this.
    17:44 Apparently blue grass music is named after the Blue Grass Boys, a band from Kentucky.

    They weren’t important anyway.

    Weirdly enough, as I’m writing this, I just woke up from a dream about Blake’s 7. Which is weird because I’ve never dreamt about Doctor Who even though I’ve been watching it forever. Really disconcerting actually. Weird. It’s Amy’s Choice, written by Toby Whithouse and aired on May 15, 2010.

    Show-notes:
    4:02 Sophie’s Choice is a 1979 book by William Stryton.
    6:03 Probably The Confessions of Nat Turner.
    9:07 The Valeyard was supposedly from between the Doctor’s twelfth and final incarnation. The novelization says that he’s somewhere between the twelfth and thirteenth incarnation. I guess all of this isn’t true anymore or just not considered in the modern show.
    12:29 Stetson is a hat brand with a really interesting history.
    14:42 We discussed bottle episodes when we discussed Sarcophagus on Zenith, our Blake’s 7 podcast.

    Well, this week we sparkle. Not that you can really tell, because it’s an audio podcast and not a video podcast, but just trust me, we are. We have the blinds open and the sun is streaming in and we’re just dying while we record. It’s The Vampires of Venice, written by Toby Whithouse and aired on May 8, 2010.

    Show-notes:
    7:15 This could have been an interesting thread about the differences between a stag party and a bachelor party until some no-fun-allowed nerds decided to close it for being off topic.
    11:38 Check out Zebra, the world’s number like 3 or 4 Blake’s 7 podcast.
    12:45 According to New World Encyclopedia, the population of Venice was around 124,000 in 1581.
    24:48 Arachne I guess? But it looks like she more gets transformed into a spider.
    29:35 Rosanna or Roseanne? Who rosanned better?
    35:29 Toby Jones was the really famous British actor who plays the villain in Amy’s Choice.

    This week Dylan and Kiyan visit Winston Churchill. Turns out he’s as much of a hot head dick as everybody actually portrays him to be. Nobody here is actually surprised. Well maybe one person is surprised. I wasn’t surprised. It’s Victory of the Daleks, written by Mark Gatiss and aired on April 17, 2010.

    41:31 Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima. February 23, 1945.
    46:40 The Special Weapons Dalek was a dalek with a massive gun from Remembrance of the Daleks. Forgot about this freaking crazy design. This is honestly more offensive than the paradigmers from this story, but I guess nobody cared enough about Doctor Who in the 80s to cause a big fuss.

    Don’t you even think about it Stephen.

    So it comes to this. The end of the Tenth Doctor, goes out with quite a bang, and about 10 minutes of plot stretched out over two hours with a twenty minute epilogue! Truly, the epitome of the Russell T. Story. It’s The End of Time, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on December 25, 2009 and January 1, 2010.

    4:49 It’s called rack focus.
    9:55 More brain stuff from a brain blog that hasn’t been updated in 6 months.
