  • Redux 11: Choose Sarcasm (Genesis of the Daleks)

    9 May 2021 (3:57pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 32 minutes and 21 seconds

    You don’t choose sarcasm on a daily basis?

    You’re missing out. Kind of like how we’ve missed out for the last 2,100 days on releasing an episode covering Genesis of the Daleks. Why are there no Doctor Who podcasts that only cover Genesis of the Daleks? The world may never know. Anyway, this week it’s Genesis of the Daleks, written by Terry Nation and aired from March 8 to April 12, 1975.

    Show-notes:
    2:20: We did go out in blaze of glory on our Blake’s 7 podcast Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast, which you should check out if you like podcasts, Blake’s 7, or podcasts on Blake’s 7.
    2:35: it’s a good point.
    15:15: Iron cross
    16:15: Adolf Eichmann was one of the military organizers of the “Final Solution”, i.e. the genocide of Jewish people in Germany. Josef Mengele was one of the top scientists in the Nazi regime, performing untold countless atrocities “in the name of science” on prisoners in concentration camps.
    48:09: The script for Genesis of the Daleks was released in The Scripts: Tom Baker 1974/5. Weirdly enough it’s on Amazon.
    48:42: Here’s the Chakoteya transcript for this episode, I guess.
    53:47: The image for Death to the Daleks on the TARDIS wiki actually kind of looks like a fan render and photoshop which is baffling because normally the wiki picks pretty good representative images.
    56:56: Genesis of the Remembrance is pretty funny actually, I didn’t believe it at first.
    1:20:23: Check out Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast.
    1:21:20: The American Sherlock Holmes tv series was from 1954.
    1:23:2: Leicester is just one of those British words that is pronounced nothing like how it’s spelled. Like Worcestershire.
    1:26:00: The Airzone Solution
    1:28:10: Don’t worry, turns out we actually know exactly why Peter Gabriel left Genesis.

  • Redux 10: Goings On that are Going On (The Daemons)

    2 May 2021 (3:57pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 11 minutes and 36 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Better than going off, amirite?

    Look one time the brig showed up at the bar I was at and asked for 5 rounds rapid. Now I thought he meant guns so I shot five glasses off the table. Bartender didn’t like that and made me pay for them. That’s all, that’s the whole story. Wasn’t really that exciting was it.  It’s The Daemons, written by “Guy Leopold” and aired fro May 22 to June 19, 1971

    Show-notes:
    0:54: The Whomobile first appeared in Invasion of the Dinosaurs whereas Bessie debuted in Doctor Who and the Silurians, so far earlier.
    5:47: Here is the plot summary that I’m reading in this segment, on the IMDB page for White Witch of Devil’s End. To no one’s surprise the TARDIS wiki has a page dedicated to White Witch of Devil’s End. Turns out it was a Reeltime production and was not made for the season rereleases.
    11:02: Artificial hills are a thing in Britain. The Journal of Antiquities has detailed descriptions of a few of them. I always thought these were related to vikings or something, but apparently they were made for various (sometimes unknown) purposes.
    13:57: The last witchcraft act was only repealed in the UK in 1951. I have a question though, since the act that repealed said witchcraft act was itself repealed in 2008, does that mean the original act is back on the books?
    14:50: The Civil Rights movement went deep into the 60’s and was still going on as America landed on the moon.
    36:40: The 7th Doctor Dalek story was Remembrance of the Daleks, so I wasn’t even close.
    37:05: Christopher Eccleston says that awe should blow up canon.
    42:05: It’s Doctor Who Locations dot net, and believe it or not, it’s still up. It would seem that there was not any interior location filming done for this story, so it was likely a set.
    46:48: Pretty sure Kiyan is reading the TARDIS wiki page but if you actually want to know what Beltane is  you should probably go to wikipedia.
    56:04: You should watch the 2019 remake of Mission to the Unknown if you haven’t already. It’s pretty great.
    1:00:14: If you don’t know the phrase “that activated my almonds,” here’s a neat little primer for you.

  • Redux 9: Future Flannel (Tomb of the Cybermen)

    25 April 2021 (3:57pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 13 minutes and 5 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Future flannel > present flannel, prove me wrong.

    So once upon a time I met this crazed archaeologist, his name was like Toberman or something. He took me to this tomb where he said there was a golden idol he wanted so he went in there and got it. There was this giant boulder and then I don’t really remember what happened next. It’s Tomb of the Cybermen, written by Kit Pedler and Gerry Davis and aired in September of 1967.

    Show-notes:
    1:47: Killer was not the one with IMIPAK it was the one with the plague. You know. Like the one we’re living through right now. Weapon was the one with IMIPAK.
    3:42: Goodyear tire company, not to be confused with the Lightyear tire company.
    5:08: I was thinking of Janley here.
    8:03: I might’ve been thinking of Kemel here, but I barely remember what his role was in Evil of the Daleks.
    14:50: Here, once again, is Christopher Eccleston saying that we should blow up canon.
    15:25: Luckily there’s no such thing as canon.
    17:12: Interestingly, the first time the TARDIS sound effect appears was actually An Unearthly Child, but curiously the TARDIS doesn’t make a noise in Keys of Marinus. The explanation for this is that takeoffs always had the sound effect and landings did not, at least until The Rescue, in Season 2.
    18:29: Turns out when the UK says “we’ll get tariff free imports from the EU when we leave” they really meant “we only get tariff free imports from the EU when we’re in the EU lol pranked ya.”
    27:35: Did ten seconds of research and found no information on when Doctor Who started to do more frequent retakes of scenes.
    39:40: Behold, the Lytton Symphonic Suite.
    43:45: According to TV Tropes, the password is always “Swordfish”.
    57:45: Yes Patrick Troughton really did want to play the Doctor in blackface.
    1:05:55: Check out Triple Play: A Movie Trilogy Podcast, our movie trilogy podcast.
    1:07:05: Supermarionation is a really fun word to say actually.

  • Redux 8: I For One Welcome Our New Morpho Overlords (The Keys of Marinus)

    18 April 2021 (3:57pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 37 minutes and 38 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Well we all knew this would happen.

    The morphos are taking over the podcast, I’m (not) sorry to say. Honestly they’re probaly here to stay as well, they’ve been treating us pretty nicely so far, and haven’t done anything to hurt us. At least, not yet anyway. Well hear what they have to say on this exciting installment of Trust Your Doctor. It’s The Keys of Marinus, written by Terry Nation and aired in April and May of 1964.

    Show-notes:
    1:22: The name of the patient at the mental hospital was Don Packard, and he played the Shopkeeper in Troll 2.
    2:41: Our original episode on Keys of Marinus went out on February 16, 2014. You can check it out if you like.
    5:50: You can find out first episode on Lexx over here at Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast.
    8:59: The moon landing was actually broadcast in color, but only for missions after Apollo 11. So to break down the statement that people bought color TVs to watch the moon landing and were probably disappointed it was in black and white is probably true.
    9:48: NASA has a neat little page about false color in Hubble Telescope images.
    36:06: Some of you are probably desperately curious, so here, here’s deduction and grapes for you.
    51:52: I’m pretty sure that the frozen whale blubber Kiyan is referring to here is Muktuk.
    1:04:10: Kiyan seems to have forgotten about Raxacoricofallapatorius.
    1:05:05: Here’s some information on The Big Lewbowski. And here’s some more information on The Dude.
    1:07:35: The Tardis wiki actually has a page (to no one’s surprise, even though it’s a talk page) talking about Terry Nation and using variant’s of “Terr. Nt.” in his stories.
    1:15:15: Couldn’t find a video of the town burning in A Fistful of Dollars, but here’s a random screncap of it, and you can always read about it on the Fistful of Dollars wikipedia page.
    1:30:46: Be sure to check out Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast.

  • 342: M&Ms Exist (The Blood Line)

    11 April 2021 (3:57pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 24 minutes and 28 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    We’re not experienced M&Mologists, but we at least know that much.

    I have a blood line, did you know that? It runs right through my arm. Look you can even see it sometimes, it’s blue and if you poke it this red liquid comes out. I only call it a blood line because that’s what everybody else calls it. I never really learned what it was in hindsight, so I’m glad Doctor Who and Torchwood are here to tell me. It’s The Blood Line, written by Russel T. Davies and Jane Espensen and aired on September 9, 2011.

    Show-notes:
    2:13: Here’s Rex Matheson: List of Appearances for everyone who actually cares.
    4:49: Our first episode on Lexx will go out this coming week, over at Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast.
    7:12: Wow I can’t believe I actually found the Doctor Who Fanon wiki again.
    12:10: The only wiki you ever need is the TARDIS wiki. Like here’s what they have to say about Mandarin. And here’s what they have to say about Chinese Dialects.
    18:00: Christopher Eccleston really did say that we should just “blow up canon” and I 100% agree with him.
    35:00: Barbara really did kill 4 Morphos in cold blood in the Keys of Marinus
    39:49: Believe it or not, the plot of Robocop 2 involves Omnicorp trying to bankrupt Detroit so that they can buy it and take over.
    41:29: The M&M’s wiki has a page on the Green M&M. Today I learned there’s an M&M’s wiki.
    46:28: Believe it or not I actually did find the book. It’s called “Torch, Wood & Peasants: Adventures in British Sci Fi“ and was written by Si Spencer under the pseudonym Webley Wildfoot.
    58:52: Hell or High Water is an amazing movie and you should all go watch it even though I just spoiled it.
    1:03:40: I think it’s just called a circle transition.
    1:03:58: The dumbest controversies of 2021 was the one where people were upset that they redesigned Lola Bunny in Space Jam 2.
    1:06:58: Yes, “king me” is from checkers.
    1:16:22: Eminem was a celebrity on Earth. Chris de Burgh was a celebrity on Earth.
    1:19:01: Yes they’re reviving iCarly, I know.
    1:22:48: Here’s that list for you again: Keys of Marinus, Tomb of the Cybermen, The Daemons, Genesis of the Daleks, Enlightenment, Timelash, Survival

  • 341: The Least Apocalyptic Apocalypse (The Gathering)

    4 April 2021 (3:57pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 14 minutes and 35 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    We are gathered here today to do a podcast.

    Yes you heard that, we’re out here doing a podcast did you know that? We do it every week, you should subscribe! You can find us all over the internet it’s pretty great actually. Even on this very website, did you know that? It’s The Gathering, written by John Fay and aired on September 2, 2011.

    Show-notes:
    1:57: Avengers: Endgame surprised audiences everywhere by having a 5 year time skip, implying that for 5 years Earth’s mightiest heroes just kind of  lay there and took it.
    6:25: I could really go for some Jubilee Pizza right about now. I haven’t had store bought pizza in ages.
    12:42: I only found 49 fics with both Esther and Jack in them . It seems 14 of them pair them up romantically. I must commend this fic in particular for 1) the weirdly inspired Lois Habiba/Esther Drummond ship and 2) being 3 times the length of the longest thing I’ve ever written. In other news Esther/Rex seems to be a popular pairing, and also I hate how much time I spent on this.
    13:58: Just go read Frankenstein so you can understand all of Kiyan’s references.
    15:23: I was gonna make a joke about cosmology vs cosmetology, but people take this way too seriously apparently and write whole articles about the two.
    27:55: Check out Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast if you want to listen to us do what we’re doing here but for other shows. Like The Prisoner. Or The Prisoner (2009).
    36:38: Harry Bosco is not a real process, and yes the first result on google is the Tardis wiki page for Harry Bosco.
    37:44: People get into arguments over which translation is the best, for some reason. This is actually a bigger problem for the Bible more than anything.
    38:30: I couldn’t find the exact quote by Murakami, but I did find this fascinating New Yorker Article about his works and the difference between Japanese and English translations of Japanese works.
    45:02: The real antipode of Shangai is Los Charrúas. You can see the top ten closest cities/towns to the exact antipode here. (Editor’s note: They talk about this in the next episode.)
    46:00: Ф
    51:33: Winnie the Pooh ranks among the most profitable media franchises ever.
    51:20: Yes, the soviet Winnie the Pooh movies really do exist, this wasn’t a joke.
    52:45: Here’s that article on how much money Winnie the Pooh generates.
    53:34: Here’s a list of highest grossing franchises where Kiyan is getting his numbers from.
    53:48: Pokemon Jet.
    54:58: Industry standard for a physics PhD is only 6 figures though.
    57:38: Ego the Living Planet is actually in Guardians of the Galaxy 2, if you can believe it.
    59:50: M’tower *tips hat*
    1:00:09: Yeah the Eiffel Tower was never meant to be permanent, sorry to disappoint folks.
    1:00:50: Smithsonian has a brief history of the Ferris Wheel and its relation to the Eiffel Tower.
    1:08:23: Tardis wiki to the rescue! Knibbs!
    1:09:47: Check out our movie trilogy podcast, Triple Play: A Movie Trilogy Podcast, if you want to listen to us talk about timeless classic cinematic masterpieces like Beverly Hills Chihuahua (which the episode for isn’t out yet, but we also watch other timeless classics like Troll 2).

  • 340: The Biggest Troll in Torchwood History (The End of the Road)

    28 March 2021 (3:57pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 56 minutes and 28 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    You know, like a troll who lives under a bridge?

    Doctor Who and Torchwood have had their share of trolls in our time, but this week just takes the cake. How can we sit here and listen to this absolute nonsense from someone so untrustworthy? And yet for some reason this is the job we decided to do, and this is the task we set before us. How disappointing. It’s The End of the Road, written by Ryan Scott and Jane Espensen and aired on August 26, 2011.

    Show-notes:
    4:06: It’s just a prank, bro.
    7:05: Here’s a site that looks like it was made in the late 90’s that has a lot of detail on the burning of “Atlanta” for Gone With the Wind.
    8:20: A birthmark in your eye has an official name, actually, it’s called a “nevus.”
    8:46: The Latin name of the immortal jellyfish is Turritopsis Dorhnii (as you’ll find out in a minute in the episode) and the Wikipedia page contains basically everything we know about them (not much).
    9:20: Polyps are one of the developmental stages of jellyfish and some other creatures. The other stage is the medusa stage. Some members of the cnidaria phylum have both polyp and medusa stages and others only have one.
    14:23: Ben Shapiro is a racist.
    18:05: Kiyan is reading the Wikipedia page for electrocardiography here but I’m going to link a more expert source in mayo clinic’s ekg page.
    27:15: According to our own list(s) of Doctor Who deaths, Kal was the one who died in An Unearthly Child.
    27:57: I looked for five seconds and all I found on a blood covered Tickle-Me-Elmo was this 45 minute video. (Editor’s note: this isn’t what I was referencing.)
    32:48: The US government notably never gets anything done in a reasonable amount of time, taking 8-10 months to even recognize that COVID was a problem. It’s so bad that the New York Times was even commenting on it… in 1979.
    36:10: Fine… I’ll do it myself. (It was Age of Ultron)
    47:41: This quote is not only from Watchmen, it’s basically the first scene in the movie.
    50:35: It is required to vote in Australia, but as noted they make it really really easy. Voter turnout in the US is historically really, really bad.
    51:57: Yes, Georgia really did restrict voting rights after the Democrats won both two senate seats and the presidential race there in 2020.
    52:45: Here’s that gerrymandering puzzle if you want to learn how busted the US voting system is. Try to get to level 6. Here’s an article from about a year and a half ago about the worst examples of gerrymandering in the U.S.

  • 339: Which of the Hidden 8th Sins Are We Talking About? (Immortal Sins)

    21 March 2021 (3:57pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 7 minutes and 37 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

     

    It’s Immortal Sins, written by Jane Espensen and aired on August 19, 2011.

    Show-notes:
    1:49: ikipedia lists only the episodes of The Walking Dead that have already aired (all 150 of them as of writing) whereas IMDB lists all episodes that have been commissioned and filmed.
    5:32: This is the Telltale Walking Dead we were referring to here.
    6:10: Polygon has an incredibly interesting deep dive into the problems Telltale Games faced that caused their downfall, including their long-standing refusal to update their engine. Also, the original Telltale is defunct now, but there’s a new Telltale in town.
    8:37: For those interested in the history of the Italian mafia in New York, The Five Families is where you want to start.
    9:14: Generally I wouldn’t link a Quora page, but Wikipedia has such a non-existent explanation for why “Mick” is a derogatory term for a person of Irish descent that in this case I will.
    12:57: That Jordan Peele gif.
    20:12: If you had told me when we started this podcast that I would be linking to the Wedding Crashers page on Wikipedia I would not believe you.
    23:16: The Rams are LA and the Raiders are Vegas now, but they used to be located in Oakland California. The Bears are in Chicago. So are the Bulls, but they’re basketball.
    41:08: Train A leaves a station in Chicago heading towards LA at 30 mph at Noon. Train B leaves LA at 3PM, heading towards Chicago traveling at 60 mph. The question is, at which point during this question did you realize that America’s rail system is pitiful compared to basically every other wealthy country in the world?
    42:15: It’s a dot sight.
    46:15: Two things, first off, who knew there was a sci-fi stack exchange? And secondly, why do they have an entire thread just on the question of “Who gave the shop-keeper Clara’s number?”
    47:21: Here’s that Today I Found Out page about the phrase “to coin a phrase” that seems like it was clearly made just for this purpose.
    48:01: You should rather check out phrases.uk for information on the phrase “to coin a phrase.”
    1:01:56: It’s been 84 years.
    1:03:00: NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month and is just a dumb thing people with too much or too little time on their hands do when they’d rather write than tend to their other responsibilities.
    1:04:04: As promised here’s the link to that dialect quiz. Actually this one is really fancy and maps out all of your dialect influences across the United States.

  • 338: I’ll Try To Remember, But I Probably Won’t (The Middle Men)

    14 March 2021 (3:57pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 8 minutes and 8 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Is there a reason why after doing the podcast for so long we have literally no short term memory?

    You ever heard that song? You know the one. “something something stuck in the middle with you.” The only official way to watch The Middle Men is to have that song playing just on constant repeat while watching. That’s it. That’s the official way to watch this episode, you heard it from us first. It’s The Middle Men, written by  and aired on August 12, 2011.

    Show-notes:
    6:40: The Stargate Wiki mentions that Eric Steinberg is of Korean and “mixed European” descent with no source or citation.
    11:20:Suicide is actually illegal in many countries around the world, but it does not seem like the punishment for attempting suicide is death. I cannot find concrete evidence that it ever was, actually.
    12:54: I tried to find information on what jobs use a bell to end the work day and I couldn’t find anything! Have this part of the intro to The Flinstones about it instead.
    17:18: This website has the most definitive guide to pronouncing Geraint, I’ve just decided right now.
    21:21: The Pandemic has taken so much from us, not the least of which is what surely would have been the magnum opus of television history, the original fully filmed season 7 finale of The Blacklist.
    24:58: The quote that I’m referring to was said by Aretha Franklin in reference to Taylor Swift. Can’t believe I mangled it that badly, but here’s the NPR review that quotes it.
    26:05: You should check out our blog because we said so. Here is my concluding article on the Prisoner video game for the curious.

    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 8 minutes and 55 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Not to be confused with Religious Seniority.

    It’s Categories of Life, written by  Jane Espensen and aired on August 5, 2011.

    Show-notes:
    0:40: Seth MacFarlane created a lot of other stuff besides Family Guy. Most of it isn’t very good.
    29:18: It was in Destiny of the Daleks. Thanks @Prof_Quiteamess and @lisacartman.
    31:28: Shockingly, Hillary Duff is still acting in things, they’re just not good things.
    32:48: Hillary Clinton also acts in things.
    37:50: I guess this is a Hillary Clinton themed episode so here’s what Wikileaks gave us on that topic.
    41:54: Who Killed Kennedy?
    42:56: The novel Shell Shock indicates hat Peri’s stepfather Howard sexually abused her. But according to the TARDIS wiki, this has been contradicted by other material.
    47:05: More on the coffee conundrum here.
    52:35: We neglected to mention that the phrase “Great Leap Forward” is also associated with an entirely different totalitarian regime.
    1:04:46: According to Wikipedia, Scorpion is ” [l]oosely based on the life of its executive producer and self-proclaimed computer expert Walter O’Brien.” Lol.
    1:05:50: You ever check out Fargo, eh?
    1:06:11: Rolling Stone reported (in 1988 lol) that in the author’s note to Libra, Don DeLillo wrote that the book was “a work of the imagination” and that “[w]hile drawing from the historical record, [he] made no attempt to furnish factual answers to any questions raised by the assassination” of Kennedy. He said the novel was instead “a way of thinking about the assassination without being constrained by half-facts or overwhelmed by possibilities, by the tide of speculation that widens with the years.”

In the UK the sun is probably still up at that time, being all a million miles from the equator and all that, but down here thanks to the end of DST we’re solidly two hours into darkness at that point. Yeah sun goes down at 5. Well 5:30 now but you get the point. It’s Dead of Night, written by Jane Espensen and aired on July 22, 2011.

  • 321: Can’t Be Bold Without Breaking the Mold (A Day in the Death)

    I thought of food mold for a hot second while writing that title.

    A day in the life of Dylan is quite boring, as is a day in the life of Kiyan (probably, I don’t know). So I wonder what a day in our death will be. Maybe something just as equally boring. I’m planning to have my body sent to space, after I donate it to science. They have to know how we could so consistently release podcasts. Must be something in our bones. It’s A Day in the Death, written by  Joseph Lidster and aired on February 27, 2008.

    Oh so that’s who Ian Chatterhouse was all this time.

    I kind of feel like a Dead Man Walking. This episode was recorded in the pre-election era, and right now I’m sitting here feeling like the last week took 4 months. I almost didn’t recognize a single thing we were talking about, which is pretty wild if you think about it. But I did get the editing done, thank goodness, even when I really didn’t want to.

    I don’t actually remember when we stopped doing quotes.

    This week Dylan, Kiyan, and Adam take a nice deep dive into Torchwood. It’s been a little while since we watched an episode that so unnerved us that we were shaken to the very core. Our entire notion of reality itself was questioned by this episode, and Adam claimed it so disturbed him he might have to stop watching Torchwood.

    1:05: If you want to listen to us talk about Sapphire and Steel, The Prisoner, and other wonderful shows like Star Cops and Children of the Stones, check out our classic sci-fi podcast Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast.
    16:26: The Museum of Hoaxes has a write up and images of the Cottingley Fairies photos.
    19:44: Wow for some reason dozens of people have adapted Conan Doyle’s The Lost World. Apparently I was wrong about Hound of the Baskervilles being not a Sherlock story at first. 50% isn’t so bad.
    35:00: Here’s the full Nightmare painting from 1781. According to etymonline, nightmare doesn’t come from the painting, but did enter the modern usage of “any bad dream” after the painting was made.
    39:51: World War I was 1914 to 1918.
    54:19: Here’s the full Stolen Child poem by W.B. Yeats.
    1:09:54: If you want to listen to us talk about movie trilogies, check out our movie trilogy podcast, Triple Play: A Movie Trilogy Podcast

    As promised here’s a Christian take on Torchwood. Spoiler: they didn’t like it. (Also spoiler warning for season 4.)
    While we’re at it, here’s another Christian take on the show, this time from Be Thinking (warning: this one spoils the Children of Earth season).
    Christian.org.uk also reported on how many Christians were offended by Torchwood and complained about it.

    I wish I was a UNIT soldier who could indiscriminately fail at his job like that.

    Did you know I was partially cyberized once? It’s true, if you go back to some of our old episodes I’m sure you could hear when my voice would just go all cyber for some reason. Yeah that’s when I was cyberized. Luckily I was able to uncyberize myself but unfortunately I can’t really remember how I did that so that knowledge has been lost to the ages. Sorry. It’s Cyberwoman, written by Chris Chibnall and aired on November 5, 2006.

    Not to be confused with Ghost IN The Machine.

    If I had a ghost machine, I’d open that puppy up when I got into my apartment to find out if someone died in here. I might not want to actually know that, actually. Can you imagine if Gwen took the machine home, fired it up, and then boom just a straight montage of 6 murders happening in her home? The trauma that would induce. It’s Ghost Machine, written by Helen Raynor and aired on October 29, 2006.

    28:25: Meant 90 degrees here.

    And the secret 0th sin: existence.

    The name of this story evokes strong memories of… something. Another story or tv show or movie and I just can’t really place what it is. I seriously feel like I watched something called Day One once upon a time and I genuinely cannot remember what the heck it was. That’s so weird. It’s Day One, written by Chris Chibnall and aired on October 29, 2006.

    Show-notes: 4:27: You’re welcome for this masterpiece of movie musical history. My personal favourite part is 1:19, when a dancer launches a bowling ball sideways accidentally and the shot immediately cuts, presumably to avoid showing the carnage that caused.
    8:40: Every time.
    16:14: If you want to listen us talk about classic sci-fi shows like Sapphire & Steel or The Prisoner, check out our classic sci-fi podcast, Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast.
    27:01: FBI, OPEN UP
    43:16: Yes, there really is a page for masturbation on the tardis wiki.
    56:50: Here’s the trailer for Vampire Diary. Y’know, I kind of miss the edginess of the mid 00s.
    58:00: Yeah, I was completely wrong here. Twilight was never a Harry Potter fanfic. Dylan was right. It was 50 Shades that started as a Twilight fanfic.

    I’m probably the worst person to do this kind of reading honestly.

    The title of this weeks episode of Torchwood is surprisingly apt for the change in the show that we’re also going to experience. Which is why Kiyan was able to so expertly make that pun last week about it. Well not much else to say besides that. It’s Everything Changes, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on October 22, 2006.

    I only like bondage anthills personally.

    So we’ve come to the end of our little journey, which means it’s time to jump back into the late 2000’s for some quality early 21st century television. But before that, we have to suffer through Pip and Jane Baker’s masterpiece. Some say it’s their greatest work, their magnum opus. It’s Time and the Rani, written by Pip and Jane Baker and aired between September 7th and 28th, 1987.

    Show-notes:
    6:47: Much as I hate to link to this AGAIN, here’s The Bikini Bottom Horror.
    10:57: If you want to listen to us talk about Back to the Future (and Crispin Glover’s legal battle), you’re in luck I guess.
    17:29: Here’s a quick (but kind of old-ish) video about Hong Kong’s cage housing.
    21:07: Behold: the Area 51 Naruto runner
    22:30: Here’s the stupid asteroid/meteor/meteorite overview thing AGAIN.
    37:16: If you want to listen to us talk about classic sci-fi, check out our classic sci-fi podcast Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast. Oh, and we also have a completed Blake’s 7 podcast called Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast. So if you wwant to hear a Blake’s 7 podcast from us, check that out.

    It’s like a shitty version of the mystery mobile.

    Alright gang buckle up because we’re coming to the end of this insane ride and we’re doing it right. And by doing it righ I mean we’re mindwarping ourselves, so I’ll putting my brain in Kiyan and he’s putting his brain in me and then absolutely nothing will change because as it turns out in the TYD canon we don’t really have defined characters. Or do we? Also we’ll be retconning that away in two weeks when we start Torchwood so. It’s Mindwarp, written by Philip Martin and aired between October 4th and 25th, 1986.

    Show-notes: 2:09: Actual recorded audio of Philip Martin bailing.
    6:56: The novel that features Sil is called Mission to Magnus. It came out in 1990… and also has the Ice Warriors in it?!
    15:40: Actually according to the Tardis wiki, Perpugilliam means “she who lives in the hills.” So I don’t know what the hell I was talking about here.
    19:33: The Rock actually streamed some of his “cheat day” meals recently. (Or maybe he always does this? I don’t know.) Here’s one of them.
    24:16: Triple Play: A Movie Trilogy Podcast is a podcast where we talk about movie trilogies and that you should check out if you want to listen to us talk about movie trilogies in podcast format.
    31:40: Dudley Simpson had already stopped composing for the show by this point.
    36:09: Rare footage of Sil
    55:17: Funny that we should mention Sapphire & Steel here considering we’re watching it for one of our other podcasts, Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast.
    1:05:40: Yeah, the 1970 Cromwell movie has Alec Guinness in it.
    1:07:47: Funny we should mention Blake’s 7 here since we have a completed Blake’s 7 podcast called Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast.
    1:08:35: Vargas was the name of Brian Blessed’s character in Blake’s 7.

    Can’t wait to see all of the Sea Devil photoshops we’ll get out of this.

    I find it interesting that in reality the Silurians are the ones in charge of this story, completely and utterly. But while they may be the ones in control, they aren’t the ones who lend their name to the title of the story. The Sea Devils don’t really do anything except show up and cap a bunch of fools, and then they just kind of… die. And yet somehow the story is named after them? It’s Warriors of the Deep, written by Johnny Byrne and aired between January 5th and 13th , 1984.

    9:44: Check out our classic sci-fi podcast, Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast.
    14:28: This is the Ulysses cover I was talking about.
    18:27: Here’s an article from Cornell about how swim bladders and lungs are actually the same thing after all. And here’s an article from Live Science about how our ears are actually gills.

    33:38: Actual recorded audio of Vislor Turlough in the year 2084.

    What if Anthony Read had actually written The Timeless Children?

    Personally I find that my dreams have taken me to the real life underworld much more than this story ever did. It’s pretty hellish down there, so I’m gonna give you all a warning. I’ve become best buds with some of my demons though, which is cool. They bought be a soda last week, that was nice of them. It’s Underworld, written by Bob Baker and Dave Martin and aired between January 7th and 28th , 1978.

  • Redux 3: That Vague Memory of 6 Years Ago (The Monster of Peladon)

    24 May 2020 (3:57pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 13 minutes and 17 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    I only have vague memories of 6 years ago apparently.

    In this episode Kiyan will espouse the belief that you should watch Monster of Peladon every single day, over and over and over again until you get it. Now I don’t necessarily disagree, but I have to wonder, is that what people want us to do with The Massacre? And if so, how is this not just some sort of twisted version of stockholm syndrome? It’s Monster of Peladon, written by Brian Hayles and aired between March 23 and April 27, 1974.

    Show-notes:
    8:13: The basic premise of 4 to Doomsday is that some aliens are on a spaceship headed to earth and are going to wipe out humanity with a virus.
    12:05: According to the Doctor Who wiki the Fourth Doctor used a sonic lance on his sonic screwdriver in Robot.
    21:30: I was talking about The Aims of Discourse by James Kinneavey. You can read it at that link for free with a jstor account.
    38:43: Check out Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast. We’re currently (at the time of writing this) watching Sapphire and Steel.
    1:04:36: Looks like Cold Warrior is just a random tv show from 1984. I could barely find any info about it other than this wiki page and an even more threadbare imdb page.
