    We all now belong to the Church of Sil.

    Look, it’s a podcast about old doctor who characters coming back and appearing in the most random way possible. How can you not expect that Sil would make an appearance? He’s basically the greatest character that’s ever graced our television screens. And I mean that most sincerely. It’s Redacted, written by Juno Dawson, Catherine Brinkworth, Ella Watts, Sasha Sienna, Ken Cheng, Àjoké Ibironke, Doris Sutherland, and David Barnes, and released between April 12 and June 19, 2022.

    Show-notes:
    6:24: If you want to listen to Redacted yourself without pirating it, you can listen on BBC Sounds.
    10:25: Remember this statement about shots, because Kiyan’s going to forget he said it. (Editor’s note: I don’t know what this means.)
    10:58: The Blue Box Podcast is a podcast about Doctor Who.
    11:42: I did it anyway.
    14:14: Partners in Crime. The name of the episode was Partners in Crime.
    19:50: I’m not even going to bother trying to find this thread because I won’t be able to.
    23:00: Don’t worry, the TARDIS wiki has an extensive page on Clive Finch.
    26:27: The disappearing hospital was seen in Smith and Jones.
    29:14: I feel like most of the links in these show-notes are going to be TARDIS wiki links, but anyway, here’s Oliver Morgenstern. I was also mildly wrong, the actor for Oliver also did not return for this audio.
    36:40:  The Larry Nightingale “ARG” is pretty wild all things considered.
    37:20: “Ergodic literature” refers to texts that take effort on the part of the reader to engage with.
    47:09: Let’s all remember The Zygon Invasion/Inversion thanks to the TARDIS wiki.
    50:55: Remember what I told you to remember earlier?
    58:36: IF you want to hear us talk about Firefly for some reason, check out Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast, our classic sci-fi podcast, where we covered that show last year (i.e. 2021).
    1:00:40: Also check out Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast, our Blake’s 7 podcast, cause why not?
    1:07:40: List of Sil’s Appearances. There are far too many of these if you ask me.
    1:10:00: I would normally cut sneezes out but the Sil spinoff necessitated leaving Kiyan’s blessings of us all in the recording.
    1:21:10: SILOET (the SHADO reference) is actually an alleged evolution of UNIT later in the Doctor Who timeline. Also lmao at Dylan’s pronunciation here. It’s “silhouette” lol.
    1:28:06: Kick some ass, get the girl, and try to look dope while you do it.
    1:07:40: Charlie Craggs actually does have an IMDB page. Though there’s nothing on it besides this as of this writing.

  • Audio 26: Comes in Clutch (The Spectre of Lanyon Moor)

    26 June 2022 (3:57pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 28 minutes and 40 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    I think Kiyan spent a little too much time on knowyourmeme this week.

    So one time I was driving my car away from the shop after replacing my transmission fluid and Dom Toretto pulled up next to me. He rolled down his window, and I obliged the unspoken invitation to do the same. He had been looking for a challenge, he said, and offered to race me. I agreed, of course, reluctantly. Long story short, I won. Guess you could say my transmission came in clutch. Speaking of which, this week we’re coming in clutch with The Spectre of Lanyon Moor written by Nicolas Pegg and released in June 2000.

    Show-notes:
    3:48: I thought it was spelled “fugu” but it’s spelled “fogou.” (Editor’s note: I thought it was spelled “fondue.”)
    4:48: Good news, I have the cover for you right here.
    9:23: Good news Once again we refer to The Time Scales for these numbers.
    23:00:
    The mounds were burial sites apparently.
    29:07:
    Check out Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast, our Blake’s 7 podcast.
    30:50:
    Believe it or not, I found the TikTok I was referring to. (Warning: watching while British may cause extreme distress.)
    37:15:
    Screw you guys, I’m going home.
    38:22:
    They do use imperial units in the UK, and Kiyan and Dylan are both correct. Road signs are required by law to be in feet/miles, and the common British vernacular uses imperial units, i.e. feet for height and pounds for food. Read more in this BBC article.
    58:36:
    Based means being yourself. Not being scared of what people think about you. Not being afraid to do what you wanna do. Being positive.
    1:02:35:
    Check out our old episode on The Nightmare Fair I guess.
    1:23:06:
    Airzone Solution novelisation
    1:26:57:
    By “you” he meant Kiyan. (Editor’s note: I don’t know what this is referring to.)

    We call those MIMs in the business.

    I can’t even have any Earth Instinct Moments. You ever look at a bug and go “huh it’s 4 inches long and it’s bright red with black stripes, it’s probably harmless?” Well good news, you just had an Earth Instinct Moment. And you’re doing better than I am. It’s Red Dawn written by Justin Richards and released in May 2000.

    Show-notes:
    4:00: As usual, here’s the Time Scales for you.
    9:45: Pretty sure we’ve talked about this before but Peter Davison is Peter Moffet’s stage name.
    10:57: Feel like I’m always linking the covers of these things for you.
    28:01: We all love the Argosy.
    35:62: Wikipedia summarizes the Brookings Report, but if you feel adventurous you can read the entire thing if you want.
    54:26: Check out our coverage of Star Cops on our classic sci-fi podcast, Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast.
    56:06: Look at me, just gonna link to the Big Finish FAQ directly. (Editor’s note: proud of you.)
    1:03:55: I forgot we read Spiral Scratch for our Sixth Doctor retrospective. What a tragedy that turned out to be. Here’s the cover in all its squiggly awfulness by the way.

    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 11 minutes and 10 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    It’s kind of like the need for speed but more academic.

    So once upon a time I opened up a book. And I wanted to just go ahead and read it and be all chill. I sat down, I lit a candle. I fluffed up my couch cushion. And just as I started to read I felt an itching. A need. A need for cheese. It’s The Genocide Machine written by Mike Tucker and released in April 2000.

    Show-notes:
    7:05: I’ll link to the Dalek Empire wiki page for those curious at home (or wherever you are).
    10:52: Mike Tucker’s wiki page lists all his Doctor Who credits and it’s quite extensive.
    14:48: For more on Terry Nation and characters named Tarrant, check out our Blake’s 7 podcast, Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast.
    24:23: I tried to find some information on BBC oversight over Big Finish but I couldn’t. Sad. (Editor’s note: read the last word in Trump’s voice in my head. Sad.)

  • Audio 23: Hot Chocolate Technology (The Marian Conspiracy)

    5 June 2022 (3:57pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 23 minutes and 16 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Damn, now I want Hot Chocolate.

    Conspiracies. Can’t live with ’em, can’t live without coming up with a new one every 4.6 seconds. Well, maybe that’s just me. Or maybe, just maybe, it’s just this week’s story, coming your way via our way courtesy once again of Big Finish. It’s all about conspiracies – actually just one conspiracy in particular, that conspiracy being The Marian Conspiracy written by Jacqueline Raynor and released on March 12, 2000.

    What titles would we give each Doctor if they were named instead of numbered? (This is in response to an email we got.)

    Here’s my (Kiyan) picks:
    1. The Black and White Doctor
    2. The Second Black and White Doctor
    3. The First Not Black and White Doctor
    4. Thete
    5. The Third Not Black and White Doctor
    6. Colin
    7. Sylvester Stallone
    8. The Doctor
    9. The The Older Something Is The Stronger It Is Doctor
    10. The David Tennant Doctor
    11. The War Doctor
    War. The Old-Ass One Foot in the Grave Doctor
    12. The Caecilius Doctor
    13. The RIP Doctor Who 1963-2017 Doctor
    Fugitive. The Mysterious Doctor

    Show-notes:
    4:00: Pretty sure Dylan just said this for the title.
    5:10: As always, here’s the timescales webpage for The Marian Conspiracy.
    5:50:It was The Land of the Dead. Lmao. Also, I was wrong about Power. It was the second episode of series D. The episode I was referring to was Horizon. Oops.
    11:22: I was, of course, wrong again. It was the Tenth Doctor story New Earth.
    13:56: Can’t believe I’m unironically linking Horace Slughorn in a Doctor Who podcast.
    26:50: I’m just reading Mary’s wikipedia page at this point.
    41:20: The cover for The Marian Conspiracy is on the timescales page above, but here it is solo anyway. And here’s the meme, for the millionth time in our show notes, for reference.
    1:03:08: Here’s the article I’m reading off of. (Editor’s note: I think this is the right link. Either way, the information is there. I just don’t know whether it’s exactly where Dylan got it.) (Dylan’s Note: Yep that’s right)
    1:06:29: Our ep on Bang-Bang-a-Boom
    1:11:12: I spent the promised 5 minutes and couldn’t find it. 🙁
    1:18:39: The Curator

    Direct Podcast Download

    It’s The Fearmonger written by Jonathon Blum and released on February 4, 2000.

    Show-notes:
    0:47: Big Finish dot com back in the 90s. Not owned by whom we currently know as Big Finish. Probably.
    3:20: Good news, the show-notes guy is here to give you a link to The Timescales for The Fearmonger.
    11:45: In case you haven’t heard, or have and just forgot or something, Ace is returning in the third and final Whittaker special special, alongside who other than Tegan. I would say that this is a pretty ace move on behalf of Chris Chibnall, but only Ace says “ace” with that usage, so I’ll just say it’s kind of neat.
    18:30: Here’s the cover of The Fearmonger for you to get into the mood while listening to the podcast.
    24:30: Department C19 was a major player in the books, apparently.
    27:47: If you for some inexplicable reason want to hear us talk more about Jacqueline Pearce, and Paul Darrow for that matter, check out Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast, our Blake’s 7 podcast.

    22 May 2022 (3:57pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 23 minutes and 26 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    I wish I had the common courtesy to die 🙁

    I wrote a Doctor Who fan fiction called “The Colony of the Dead” once. This is a true story, by the way. Anyway, I wrote it long before I knew this audio existed. It features the First Doctor in an icy wasteland where dead people are coming back to life. I’m pretty sure I still have it somewhere actually… It’s Land of the Dead written by Steven Cole and released in January, 2000.

    Show-notes:
    1:00: We all wish that Big Finish audios were released on Dual Disc, right?
    2:35: Why do we need Young James Bond anyway?
    8:40: The Koyukon are real indigenous people of Alaska.
    21:40: Here’s the map of Brett’s house as uploaded to the TARDIS wiki.
    35:24: Yep, Big Finish exists in universe.
    45:57: The 6th Doctor became vegetarian in The Two Doctors, apparently.
    57:04: Here’s what Big Finish dot com looked like on the seventh of October 1999.
    1:03:00: It’s over 9000.
    1:07:56: Check out more on Real Time on the most insane site on the public internet, the Tardis Wiki.
    1:12:50: If you want to listen to us talk about Blake’s 7 for 50+ episodes for some reason, check out our Blake’s 7 podcast, Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast.
    1:13:15: Call the police, my wife has been murdered! I actually did a pretty good Paul Darrow impression here, if I do say so myself.
    1:17:00: Here’s a link to the actual news article, now that it actually works.
    1:20:50: Listen to Zenith’s final episode for yourself over here.

    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 24 minutes and 18 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Just drop that seaweed in the blender and blend it right up. Yum.

    Did you hear that? That noise. The one just behind you. The one that kind of sounded like a door opening. Nah, never mind, it probably wasn’t important. Probably just the wind. It’s Whispers of Terror, written by Justin Richards and released in November, 1999.

    Show-notes:
    0:37: Ironically, Kiyan’s specificity ended at not including the actual date of release, since it appears nobody really knows what it is.
    3:45: According to the Doctor Who Podcast Alliance, the total sum of our audio output is actually 22 days.
    6:18: Considering the rather blistering intro paragraph of this 2008 academic paper, it’s probably not true that indigenous Tasmanians forgot how to make fire. Unless this paper is wrong idk.
    7:20: Brace yourself, I’m about to mispronounce Ncuti Gatwa‘s name.
    9:00: Yeah, guess I just decided to immortalize my mistake for all eternity. Nice.
    13:03: Some excerpts of the interview appear on DailyMail. Here’s the relevant part: “‘It was talent. He was the very last one, we thought we had someone and then in he came in and stole it,’ Davies said.”
    35:32: Someone made a compilation of all the times Mel screamed, so you can enjoy that if you like.
    36:27: Witness the atrocity known as laverbread. I’ve never tried it, so you know what, hey, it might be good.
    1:05:42: It’s called Ghost in the Machine, and we’ve released an episode on it here.
    52:27: Here’s what bigfinish.com looked like in 1999. Something tells me the Big Finish we know and love today weren’t the owners of the domain back then.
    1:00:26: The dog in question. And on fire.
    1:06:28: Here are our episodes on Ghost in the Machine and Sleep no More if you’re interested.We’ve also released an episode on Sleep No More.
    1:06:32: I have no idea which story I’m talking about here. I couldn’t find it.
    1:08:50: Here’s The Time Scales by the way.
    1:12:20: Good news, you don’t need to navigate Twitter’s god awful interface because I’ve done it for you.
    1:15:20: Listen to Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast on your favourite podcast catcher.
    1:20:00: Behold the rabbit hole of WeatherNewFans.
    1:23:39: I had no idea how right I truly was…

  • Audio 19: The Waking Dead (Phantasmagoria: Revisited)

    8 May 2022 (3:57pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 16 minutes and 3 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Alternate title: Hell Yeah, Mark Strickson! We were less enthusiastic about old Mark after we learned he was maybe possibly theoretically hypothetically a redhead, but also not one at the same time. Got give it up to him though. He was pretty fantastic in this story. Or should I say phantastic, with a “ph?” Probably not because it’s not spelled with a “ph,” but what is spelled with a “ph” is Phantasmagoria, written by Mark Gatiss and released on October 4, 1999.

    Show-notes:
    1:00: I suppose the cover is kind of orangey.
    1:20: I dunno here’s a picture of Mark Strickson, decide for yourself what color his hair is. (Editor’s note: It’s chartreuse.)
    2:45: This was the optical illusion I was talking about, courtesy of the Washington Post. I guess they had nothing better to report on or something. Anyway, I if you put your finger between A and B in the image, you’ll see that they’re the same color. That’s what I meant to say on recording. Here’s a bunch of similar illusions from the Washington Post.
    3:28: Here’s our first attempt at this episode from like 5 years ago if you’d like to listen to it. I’m not going to.
    6:35: Behold: stories set in 1702.
    9:23: Here’s the wikipedia page on Almanac that Kiyan couldn’t find in a reasonable time span.
    15:08: The Visitation is set in 1666.
    19:28: Apparently it was true.
    23:37: Check out our classic sci-fi podcast, Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast.
    55:30: It’s Day of the Doctor that Kiyan is referring to here.
    1:02:02 The P.R.O.B.E. videos are actually about Liz Shaw, they don’t even pretend it’s not, because of how rights worked. Also, if you know how/why P.R.O.B.E. stands for “Preternatural Research Bureau,” let us know, cause we’re stumped.
    1:06:38 Seven Keys to Doomsday is an audio adaptation of a stage play.
    1:07:50 The name of JB’s current Doctor Who podcast, if you weren’t aware, is Doctor Who Gives a F*ck.

    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 10 minutes and 36 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Nothing more grating than a cheese grater, especially when you’re using it to grate yourself. Going to town with it on your own body. Turning yourself into a bloody pulp if you know what I’m saying. Tearing your flesh to shreds if you catch my drift. Permanently maiming yourself in the most hideous and painful way possible if you get my meaning. The grating halt to which our enjoyment of this audio came in the story’s fourth part is pretty high up there on the gratingness scale too though, I guess. It’s The Sirens of Time, written by Nicholas Briggs and released on July 19, 1999

    Show-notes:
    2:03: When you remember that Tom Baker actually created Slender Man.
    7:04: For the love of god, don’t listen to our episode on The Airzone Solution.
    8:30: I’ll just link the page for this audio on the Big Finish site so you can see the cover of this audio.
    15:30: Know Your Meme has details on the “reaction guys” meme. Here’s the 2014 reunion as a side-by-side comparison.
    16:46: Sigh, something something TARDIS wiki something something artron energy.
    24:35: Check out Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast, our classic sci-fi podcast.
    42:15: Here’s a pretty decent page on whether or not viruses are alive (it’s up for debate) and how they differ from other lifeforms. I think when most people think “virus,” they’re thinking of bacteriophages, which look like microscopic robots. These things attack bacteria and are supposedly one of the deadliest beings on Earth. Luckily, they’re completely harmless to humans.
    1:08:53: Here’s a sneak peek at what we’re covering next week, courtesy of the TARDIS wiki.

    Did you know that Sea Devils actually have major hops?

    This week we return to the podcast that kicked off everything. It’s the moment that started everything, Trust Your Doctor, coming back for its triumphant return. Unfortunately, its to cover an episode that is… less than triumphant if we do say so. It’s Legend of the Sea Devils, written by Ella Road and Chris Chibnall and aired on April 17, 2022

    Show-notes:
    5:05: Lady Christina has her own spinoff and the cover looks pretty damn boring if I do say so myself.
    12:47: We’re both reading the Sea Devils page on the TARDIS wiki.
    34:24: Clangers is indeed still around.
    36:05: How can you not love how adorable the Skymoos are?
    52:55: Check out Inevitable: A Classic Sci Fi Podcast
    1:09:50: Here’s a link to “Not that gripping, not that bad.”

    9 January 2022 (4:57pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 36 minutes and 5 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    I suppose there are worse things to have on the brain.

    It’s Eve of the Daleks, written by Chris Chibnall and aired on January 1, 2022

    Show-notes:
    2:55: For some reason I will take this opportunity to link you to our Heaven Sent episode, over a year ago!
    4:00: Not gonna link this.
    8:01: Jar Jar Binks is canon to the Doctor Who universe.
    20:02: Here’s the TARDIS wiki page on time loops.
    22:00: Trust Your Doctor released its first episode on January 24, 2014. This episode is no longer in the podcast feed, because it’s pretty bad. It’s been since replaced by a re-recorded version that was backdated.
    29:36: You are a sad, strange little man.
    33:30: The official Doctor Who youtube account, in what may have been a bout of prescience, uploaded the clip of Dan literally running circles around the Dalek for all to enjoy. (It actually wasn’t a bout of prescience since they uploaded the clip on the 3rd, well after there was enough time to gauge whether it would be regarded as one of the best scenes in the episode, which I would assume it was and which I personally think it is, but whatever.)
    36:02: Paying tax on illegal money is something about how you’re supposed to be taxed on total income, not just total legal income.
    45:50: The character Dan worked with at the food bank was Wilma.
    47:38: Troll 2, the greatest masterpiece of 20th-century film, is actually a movie we’ve watched on Triple Play: A Movie Trilogy Podcast, our movie trilogy podcast, so check that episode out.
    54:31: Here’s some more information on the gunpowder plot (and Guy Fawkes), courtesy of Wikipedia.
    58:57: I didn’t even bother to try find this tweet. (Editor’s note: Same. Forget that, lol)
    1:00:40: Here’s a link to the official BBC Sea Devil promo images. This article also includes an image from the Third Doctor serial, The Sea Devils, indicating that the sea devil itself does not seem to have been so massively redesigned as we thought.
    1:19:14: EthelredBusybody’s review of Eve of the Daleks.
    1:20:10: Flux and Beyond, by busclas.
    1:26:11: Brigadier Bambera is BACK. LETS GO.
    1:26:50: Frazer Hines isonly 77, actually.

  • 349: Can’t Wait for the Absorbaloff to Come Back (The Vanquishers)

    12 December 2021 (4:57pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 44 minutes and 48 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    You heard it here first, from the podcast that the show is based on rather than the other way around ™.

    The end of our first season that we podcasted along with the episodes as they aired. So that’s gotta be something important in our history right? And three episodes from now we’ll basically have finished up this whole era on the podcast, with our first podcast along regeneration episode. Anyway, it’s The Vanquishers, written by Chris Chibnall and aired on December 5, 2021.

    Show-notes:
    1:20:  Spoiler Alert: How to Pronounce did not help.
    1:46: The clip I found is the beginning of this interview with Azhur Saleem and Jamie Magnus Stone.
    7:40: I tried to find out if “tapestratic” was a word, and it is not. (Editor’s note: But as always, you can find it being used online in, you guessed it, an academic(-ish) article: Becoming-Jaguar: Escaping Dialectical Negation Through Monistic Process Metaphysics)
    9:22: Check out our movie trilogy podcast, Triple Play: A Movie Trilogy Podcast.
    24:17: The Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument is cool as hell and you should all check it out. Tweet me if you have any questions about it, I love my work.
    24:34: Just outing my github, I suppose, but here’s the code I wrote that gets run every night on any data we take.
    24:55: Wikipedia cites an internal memo from Barry Letts where he names The Master explicitly because it’s another academic degree like a doctorate. This memo, however, 404’s so I’ll just link Wikipedia.
    28:12: ToohotforTV
    31:18: We’re (not (not (not))) going to make chocolate on Cooking with Trust Your Doctor.
    32:12: For more on Gan and the failures of his limited, check out our Blake’s 7 podcast, Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast.
    38:06: We watched the Prisoner (2009) over on our classic sci-fi podcast, Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast.
    1:01:32: Good news, knowyourmeme is here to explain the “Do you have the slightest idea how little that narrows it down?” meme.
    1:06:15: Here’s that Paul Cornell tweet that spurred on this discussion.
    1:28:16: I will not be able to find this tweet again, it’s been almost a week since it was posted and things in the twitterspace just fall into the void.
    1:29:02: Here’s the TARDIS wiki page for Shobogan (species).
    1:33:53: Doctor Who Gives a F#*! has a great website, you should go look at it.
    1:42:02: To keep up with our Inevitable adventures, go and subscribe to Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast.

  • 348: Stick With Me Here, But John Cena as the Master (Survivors of the Flux)

    5 December 2021 (4:57pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 44 minutes and 52 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Trust Your Doctor normally has insane ideas, but this time they’ve gone too far.

    We’re rapidly closing in on the end of possibly the whirl windiest season of Doctor Who ever written. It’s bizarre, it’s amazing, it’s huge. It’s everything you ever wanted from a Doctor Who story. Or at least, that’s what the boys over at Trust Your Doctor think. I mean, really, what else could it be? It’s Survivors of the Flux, written by Chris Chibnall and aired on November 28, 2021.

    Show-notes:
    0:26: Didn’t look up how to pronounce Azhur Saleem’s name. Sorry.
    1:35: Here’s your Spotify wrapped! How did I do that? Well. Magicians never reveal their secrets. (Editor’s note: he just linked directly to it.)
    2:22: You can actually listen to our Revolution of the Daleks episode over here.
    3:17: Check out our Blake’s 7 podcast, Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast, and help it do even better than any of our currently running podcasts.
    4:00: It’s actually Justin underscore does underscore art: @justin_does_art.
    6:21: Check out our other podcasts too: Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast and Triple Play: A Movie Trilogy Podcast.
    5:02: You can actually see every episode of our podcasts we released in 2021 on our website, since I normally tag posts/episodes by their release year.
    12:34: The word wizard has been ruined forever.
    17:55: For those as interested in the behind the scenes as much as I am, here’s the BTS video from John Bishop’s twitter.
    20:07: Check out the best episode of Triple Play: A Movie Trilogy Podcast: the Fred Trilogy episode.
    21:40: I was shocked to discover that this tweet/instagram post was a damn month ago. Anyway, good news is I found the tweet where someone showed that Vin made himself bigger than The Rock.
    27:02: Norse mythology in general is pretty fascinating, but Yggdrasil itself is one of the most interesting things in it. (Editor’s note: I have no idea why Dylan is so interested in Norse mythology all of a sudden.)
    28:30: Don’t worry Fandango Movieclips is here to remind you of the fridge scene in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
    36:39: I don’t remember what episode this was, probably the one we recorded the week I discovered it. Surprise, Dylan didn’t cut it out.
    43:04: Worry not, we haven’t forgotten that this is an audio only medium. Here’s the shot we’re talking about.
    45:58: The Killing Joke, a seminal comic classic.
    53:37: I like when Kiyan says he’ll put things in the show-notes, because it means I don’t have to. (Editor’s note: was this just a random comment? I didn’t say anything to this effect around this timestamp, so whatever.)
    57:33: Was this the thing the last show note was referring to? Chris Chibnall’s villain origin story? For some reason I can’t find a better quality upload of it in full anymore. There definitely used to be one on youtube.
    1:03:25: I forgot where I read the US department of defense uses VHS tapes, but I can’t find any other information along this line, so it’s probably wrong.
    1:05:30: We’re gonna talk about John Barrowman for a while, so I think it best to link an article that gives a good overview of the allegations against him for those who aren’t in the loop.
    1:23:52: There was, I kid you not, twenty seconds of stunned silence to this revelation that I cut out.
    1:26:55: “The last thing I have to say…” *looks at timestamp*
    1:36:01: As promised, here’s the article from Steven’s email.
    1:39:44: It must have been fun before we revealed this on the podcast to imagine that our show-notes person sometimes seemed to have multiple personalities. For a fun game, try guess who wrote this show-note.

  • 347: I Regret Nothing and I Don’t Take it Back (Village of the Angels)

    28 November 2021 (4:57pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 38 minutes and 9 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Well, I suppose it was worth a shot trying to get him to take it back. (Editor’s note: No.)

    We somehow went this entire episode without making a “Children of the Stones” joke. Can you believe that? I can’t believe that. We made a dozen of those jokes while we were watching the episode, so the fact that we didn’t make a single one in the episode is a little shocking. It’s Village of the Angels, written by Chris Chibnall and Maxine Alderton and aired on November 21, 2021.

    Show-notes:
    3:05: I couldn’t find out exactly when they finished Flux specifically, but I read that Jodie and Mandip wrapped the final special in October. Here’s a handy dandy timeline of the entire season’s + specials production schedule.
    4:33: Here’s the article explaining why Doctor Who is apparently banned in China. Apparently the ban has something to do with treating history seriously, which I guess the Chinese government says that shows like Doctor Who don’t. Weird but hey. The article also reminded me that Winnie the Pooh is also censored in China. Lmao.
    6:40: Here’s the “bloody good story” and “absolutely brilliant” tweets for ya.
    11:40: Devon is a county in the south west of the UK.
    16:19: Kiyan and I are referencing Geraint Cooper, from Torchwood.
    18:06: Here’s a clip in case you forgot what an Ood vomiting out its brain looked like.
    18:48: COME QUIETLY OR THERE WILL BE TROUBLE.
    24:17: Kiyan probably could not find the phrase “There is no planet called Time” in the Halloween Apocalypse transcript, because the phrase was actually said in War of the Sontarans.
    31:42: From Chakoteya: “JERICHO: Oh, I’ve seen many things beyond my comprehension, Doctor. I was one of the first British soldiers into Belsen at the end of the war. If you think a few stone statues will destroy my equilibrium you are mistaken. What do you need me to do?” Bergen-Belsen (or just Belsen) was a concentration camp.
    32:20: I will never find this tweet but I don’t even care to defend this tweet.
    33:15: Sorry for linking to Daily Mail, but they had the best picture of Jodie Whittaker looking miserable at the beach.
    35:55: Here’s the tweet from the official BBC account of the angels and their scar, for all you fanatics to compare to.
    48:47: Don’t worry, Know Your Meme comes through once again.
    48:51: And here’s the link to the monkey puppet meme. I made this reference on our latest episode of Inevitable: A Classic Sci Fi Podcast, where we talked about the Firefly episode, Trash.
    50:45: Check out our classic sci-fi podcast, Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast.
    53:18: We covered assignment 3 of Sapphire and Steel like a year ago.
    54:35: From Out of the Rain. Yeah, I’m linking Wikipedia for this and not tardis.fandom.com What are you gonna do about it?
    59:29: We regretfully covered The Predator on our soon-to-be-defunct movie trilogy podcast, Triple Play: A Movie Trilogy Podcast.
    1:01:07: Be sure to listen to listen to our episode on movie trilogies over on Triple Play: A Predator Podcast. This has to be the most useless show-note I’ve ever written.
    1:29:55: We also have an episode on Pirates of the Caribbean over on Triple Play.
    1:35:25: Check out Flight Through Entirety.

    Direct Podcast Download

    1 step forward, 23597908945832974317590327591375932175 steps back.

    Have you ever seen that Disney Christmas special, “Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmas?” I remember owning it on DVD as a kid, but I actually for some reason remember thinking that the sequel, “Mickey’s Twice Upon a Christmas” was better. I don’t know why I remember this. I’m not sure anybody else even agrees with me. It’s Once, Upon Time, written by Chris Chibnall and aired on November 14, 2021.

    Show-notes:
    1:07: Dylan (I) obviously meant “John perTWEE and Joffery Beevers.” Also, the guy whose name we mispronounced for the entirety of The Prisoner (on Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast) was George Markstein.
    15:02: It is actually called the uvula, I was being serious!
    34:32: Tamagotchis still exist, so if you want one for yourself you can easily go and get one now. (Editor’s note: so do the Digimon v-pets.)
    35:16: I’ve tried to find a reference for Box before with no avail, so I’ll see if Kiyan wants to try. (Editor’s note: I don’t know what this means, but check out Triple Play: A Movie Trilogy Podcast.)
    36:13: The “The World If” meme.
    36:34: The title of Episode 5 was even “Three End” because we made a pun off the future name of Triple Play.
    45:05: Spoilers for two minutes from now, I’m talking about Brendan. (Editor’s note: why was this necessary? Also check out Flight Through Entirety.)
    1:03:20: Don’t worry, Wikipedia will hook you up with information on Keyser Söze.
    1:05:25: Not the same director, or even writer actually. Easy to get confused though.
    1:17:17: Here’s that Keys of Marinus Revisited episode for you. Funny that “Three End” also covered Keys of Marinus. Is Flux a secret Keys of Marinus remake? (Editor’s note: no.)
    1:25:30: Check out Firefly on Inevitable.
    1:26:02: I’m reading from How Angles Really Look, so go and read about some more terrifying angels.
    1:29:10: I put on my robe and wizard hat. You’re welcome.

  • 345: Flux Repellent Shields (War of the Sontarans)

    14 November 2021 (4:57pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 40 minutes and 49 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Come one, come all, come and see the magical flux repellent shields on the Luparian fleet.

    Flux repellent sounds like some sort of AXE body spray knock off. Did the UK have the phase where every middle schooler ever wore AXE? Cuz we certainly had it over here in the US and some might argue that we never really even escaped that period even tho we like to think we did. That’s neither here nor there though. It’s War of the Sontarans, written by Chris Chibnall and aired on November 7, 2021.

    Show-notes:
    4:17: I’m not gonna link all the random Doctor Who stories that we reference here. You’re listening to a Doctor Who podcast, I’m pretty sure you know what we’re referencing.
    7:54: DAMN DANIEL
    9:53: In case you forgot what the HADS is, here’s the TARDIS wiki page on the HADS. I had(s) also forgotten about it until now
    12:04: Here’s the Wikipedia page on The Crimean War if you’re curious and know as little about it as we did.
    12:50: Mary Jane Seacole was a British-Jamaican nurse and businesswoman who also has an extensive wikipedia page.
    22:28: The TARDIS wiki conveniently used an image of the exact scene Kiyan was referring to for the Armageddon Factor.
    28:23: And including Alaska.
    37:14: It’s just “Crimea” according to Wikipedia.
    38:39: The etymology of Russia is actually pretty well documented on sites like etymonline and a bunch of others. I don’t remember seeing any of this info years ago. It comes from Rus, the name of ancient people who lived in/settled in the area. The etymology of “Rus” is a little more up for debate though according to wiki.
    40:25: I was unclear in what my point was here. What I wanted to say was whether or not you considered the entire USSR as “Russia” or just the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic as “Russia”. It’s like, when you say “America” do you mean only the states, or do you include Puerto Rico?
    49:15: Here’s the link to that post, on the official Doctor Who Facebook page.
    51:53: SyFy actually claims directly that Doctor Who influenced The Matrix.
    57:00: They look a lot like Eldrad, truly.
    1:01:1: The Kuleshov Effect, enjoy. Also check out our classic sci-fi podcast, Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast, where we talked about this in more detail at some point or another.
    1:06:53: Keep an Eye on Dan, he can get a little out of hand.
    1:11:15: God damn we referenced a lot of other Doctor Who episodes this week.
    1:16:58: Remember that you will one day die, obviously, just like the rest of us. Memento Mori.
    1:18:00: Ok I’ll link the 11th Doctor’s regeneration for you.
    1:36:48: Wikipedia has an in-depth history of Halloween. The modern holiday has a number of origins, but yeah, it’s basically of European origin. One of the quotes on the page is from an old book published like 100 years ago: “All Halloween customs in the United States are borrowed directly or adapted from those of other countries.”
    1:39:04: Yes, Icelandic is the closest you’ll get to Old Norse.

  • 344: The Luparian Steve Jobs (The Halloween Apocalypse)

    7 November 2021 (4:57pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 35 minutes and 34 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Does every culture have a Steve Jobs analogue?

    This episode, both the TV episode and our podcast episode, are a little bit chaotic. We drop a lot of theories on this episode, amazingly they’re all probably going to be wrong. At the same time, can yo believe that? I can. We’re known for it at this point. (Just kidding). Anyway, it’s The Halloween Apocalypse, written by Chris Chibnall and aired on October 31, 2021.

    Show-notes:
    0:47: I might as well link the Marco Polo episode for all you Trust Your Doctor historians.
    1:44: Confirm whether or not we watched The Chase together by listening to our episode on it.
    5:02: Yeah The Big Bang wiped out the Doctor Who universe and rebuilt it.
    7:15: Pair bonding is beyond not what I meant to say here.
    9:57: It took us 10 minutes before we referenced Christopher Eccleston blowing up canon. I thought this was a new record but in our Survival episode we took only 5 and a half minutes.
    14:26: Fear not dear listener, the wikipedia page for cold opens is here to save the day.
    16:54: The TARDIS wiki of all places has a page on the arg. I forgot that the “prize” was just a picture of the Doctor. lol.
    19:51: List of British Monarchs. Best wikipedia page, 2021.
    23:42: For all our American fans, here’s some info on Liverpool FC
    26:43: I will not link this.
    35:22: Googling “JFK jr resurrection” has probably ruined my search history but I did it for you.
    54:23: This is not going to go the way you think.
    57:55: Here’s that page in case you wanted to look yourself.
    1:17:00: Bernard’s statement is sourced from a tweet because it was said live on TV.

    1:32:56: Here, you can watch the opening scene to Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets for yourself.

    We’re back, again!

    It hasn’t been that long, just 4 months or so, but we’re finally back. Unlike the actual Doctor Who, we didn’t take a massive like 10 year hiatus. But we’re back to podcast along with Doctor Who: Series 13: Flux. Or whatever the heck they’ve decided to call it.

  • 343: Like Getting Slapped With a Wet Sock (The Airzone Solution)

    6 June 2021 (3:57pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 32 minutes and 57 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Ah, my favourite sensation.

    So in the future, when we’re all wearing masks in order to stay alive, do you think we’ll look back on this movie as a warning? Probably not in al honestly, I think most people probably don’t even remember that it exists. I didn’t. And I wish to never again. See you all soon! It’s The Airzone Solution and released at some point in 1993.

    Show-notes:
    0:56: Here, for your very own viewing and enjoyment, the Warped Factor review that I read from.
    5:44: Did you know that the ineffable Dough Liman directed Chaos Walking to the point of it being unreleasable?
    11:58: Yep this takes place in 2091. Amazing.
    14:47: Might as well just link to the wikipedia page for Bill and Ben Video.
    25:27: Go and watch Soylent Green instead of The Airzone Solution, it’s way more interesting.
    25:56: Watching The Airzone Solution feels like being held at gunpoint buy you’re bored.
    31:51: How to stage faint, for all you budding actors out there.
    51:30: “In chemistry, a solution is a special type of homogeneous mixture composed of two or more substances.” – Wikipedia User, 2???. The two components of a solution are a solute and solvent.
    51:59: I went on AO3 and looked for “Airzone Solution”  and actually found one f*cking fan fiction about The Airzone Solution. And it was published in 2020! Creepily enough, Arnie gets slapped by Ellie in this… with a wet sock. *Twilight Zone theme plays*
    1:13:06: Which Peter? Blue Peter.
    1:18:44: Really, actually starting in 15 minutes from when you heard us say this.
    1:20:50: Check out Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast, our classic sci-fi podcast. It’ll be running (at some point) while Trust Your Doctor’s on hiatus.
    1:21:04: The 2038 problem needs some levity added to it. Please, people. Start joking about this just to take the edge off how much it’ll suck when we get there.
    1:25:52: I’m not saying you can watch The Airzone Solution for yourself on Tubi, but I’m not not saying that either.
    1:27:20: Blow up canon or whatever, thank god we don’t have to paste this article anymore. Pretty sure I have it memorized now.
    1:31:23: This is a reference to Battlefield.

  • Redux 14: Classic Who Ends with Furries ft Steven (Survival)

    30 May 2021 (3:57pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 35 minutes and 11 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    I can’t believe this, furries are canon.

    Ah the end of two eras, almost if it weren’t for the last minute decision we made that makes this not the final episode before the hiatus. Instead we return with a shitty TV movie in a week. No not that TV movie. Not the one you’re thinking of. It’s a different one. One that’s actually shitty. Anyway before then, it’s Survival, written by Rona Munro and aired from November 22 to December 6, 1989.

    Show-notes:
    2:33 Here’s that episode on where Steven last appeared, From Out of the Rain.
    5:44: Remember that time that canon said we should blow up Christopher Eccleston?
    12:42: We turn here to the Tardis Wiki for information on Love and War.
    15:10: Yes, The Curator really is in the next UNIT boxset.
    21:15: This Ace Time Lord Arc would eventually be borne out in the audio Thin Ice, which was an adaptation of a script from the unmade Season 27.
    23:55: The full title of the novel is “The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman”.
    24:43: I am reading off the page for racism on the Tardis Wiki.
    26:00: I highly recommend people check out The Art of Self-Defense, if only because it’s just hilarious.
    29:12: The Goosebumps intro.
    32:20: Wayne’s World Dot Gif
    33:18: Here’s the link to the [redacted] wikipedia page where you can verify my facts.
    33:59: And here’s Flings for all of our non-South African audience members.
    35:37: I’m not gonna link any of this food because it’s all disgusting.
    49:00: This is a subtle reference to the latest (as of right now) episode of Steven’s podcast Delayed Replay, which Dylan and I were on. We discussed The Matrix 4, a.k.a. M4TRIX, which is definitely out right now in May 2021 and not coming later.
    48:55: Planet of the Apes is a semi autobiographical story about…
    50:37: A Hath, a Hath, my kingdom for a Hath.
    1:12:43: What the f*ck did you just say f*cking say about me?
    1:17:51: Jordan Peele dot gif. Also check out Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast, our classic sci-fi podcast.
    1:20:08: McCallum was a British crime drama TV show that has no sci-fi elements.
    1:27:29: Yes we still have a blog, and if you never looked at it you personally are the reason that we haven’t updated it recently.
    1:29:30: Find Steven and his stuff at:
    His site
    Amazon (his novel)

  • Redux 13: Radically Unfair Trial (Timelash)

    23 May 2021 (3:57pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 22 minutes and 54 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    We’re beyond just regular unfair trials now.

    Honestly in hindsight revisiting this was a mistake. This was a completely nonsense episode to revisit. And it wasn’t even good! Like it was just bad! And yet for some reason we say down like “yeah you know what episode I wanna revisit, Timelash.” Somebody get the TARDIS and slap past us. It’s Timelash, written by Glen McCoy and aired from March 2nd through 6th, 1985.

    Show-notes:
    0:15: I left it in.
    0:45: Find out if we liked Timelash the first time by listening to our original episode.
    2:55: We revisited Mindwarp before we started Torchwood.
    5:00: The Airzone Solution. Stay tuned in the episode for where I (Dylan) somehow get convinced into watching this in two weeks time.
    5:40: Here are some links to JB’s podcasts, namely Who 37 and Bat 77.
    10:17: I (Kiyan) (re)read The Time Machine by H.G. Wells in the time since we recorded this episode and (re)found out that the morlocks are a reference to the something in the book.
    15:28: We covered Dance of the Dead on our other podcast, Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast.
    22:14: Check out Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast, our Blake’s 7 podcast.
    32:31: Here’s our episode on Blake’s 7’s City at the Edge of the World. This was all the way back in 2018. Man. Time flies.
    33:15: The TARDIS wiki summary really does call Tekker “sycophantic”.
    53:24: Here are the blog posts as promised: Sexism in the Time Machine and Bibliophilia: HG Wells Doesn’t Play Nice. Feel free to make your own determination.
    57:28: The Bandrils really did say “screw this” and just invaded everyone.
    1:08:01: Can’t believe we’ve mentioned and linked this article reporting that Christopher Eccleston said Doctor Who needs to explode the canon for 5,000 weeks in a row now.

  • Redux 12: PJ Hammond Would’ve Liked This Story (Enlightenment)

    16 May 2021 (3:57pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 29 minutes and 24 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    PJ Hammond is underrated.

    Kind of like how certain Doctor Who stories are underrated. Like The Sensorites. Or Carnival of Monsters. Both stories. Both typically rated under stories that they, for whatever reason outshine. Actually, I just made that up. I have no idea whether The Sensorites and Carnival of Monsters are generally beloved or not. Anyway, it’s Enlightenment, written by Barbara Clegg and aired from March 1st through 9th, 1983

    Show-notes:
    9:25: Matt Smith was the youngest actor to play the Doctor at the time of his debut.
    11:55: I actually found a picture of the chess match in the story, and as it turns out Turlough is playing White and Tegan is playing Black.
    18:50: Thankfully Wikipedia has a page explaining what “edutainment” is, and it sounds as corporate as the term itself.
    19:33: Bill and Melinda Gates’ divorce is probably going to stay in the news cycle for a while as there are literally billions of dollars and an entire charitable foundation that all need to be sorted out.
    20:02: The winner takes it all.
    21:48: Poodlegate and that’s all I’ll say on it.
    23:43: I couldn’t find any evidence that “doctor” meant “cook” on old ships.
    29:51: As promised, our original episode on this was 131: Iron Chef Space.
    39:47: I found a whole random little internet forum discussion about the pronunciation of wrath in different countries so that’s neat.
    58:08: Time stands still. Thanks, Cambridge Dictionary.
    57:54: We talked about Sapphire and Steel at length on our other podcast, Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast.
    1:20:: Worry not dear listener, I have a link to the Ballad of the Last Chance Saloon right here.
    1:27:27: Yeah we still have this blog thing. Hasn’t been updated in months but oh well.

  • 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

    Direct Podcast Download

    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.
    1:10:12 Check out our classic sci-fi podcast, Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast.

  • 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.
    26:12: Be sure to check out Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast for all your obscure science-fiction television needs.
    37:26: It’s called compassion fatigue and it’s actually a major problem in front-line workers right now due to COVID-19.
    38:42: School shootings happen way too often to even cover adequately in the news anymore.
    39:40: According to the CDC, the positive rate of  Influenza testing decreased 100 fold due to mask wearing, social distancing, and other COVID prevention measures.
    51:18: As always, “Ianto Jones (19 August 1983-2009) was an ex-member of the ill-fated Torchwood One and a member of Torchwood Three, initially serving as more of a “support man” or “tea boy”, but later taking a more active role in missions.”
    52:06: Vera’s page on the TARDIS wiki is no better than Ianto’s in terms of outlining her achievements.
    53:53: Our Back Pockets has a solid post on the history of Be gay Do Crimes.
    1:02:17: Here is the exact same link I provided last week talking about the Great Leap Forward and its use and connotation with the Chinese Communist Party.

    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.”

    Honestly this title alone was confusing.

    We record these podcast in the dead of night now actually. Like way late at night. Like 7 PM. I know, so late right. 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.

    Halloween can’t come soon enough.

    So the children of earth are saved and the day is mine once more. We only had to sacrifice one kid rather than the 10% that the 456 requested, but the 456 are off gallivanting somewhere else. They have technology to do almost anything but replicate this weird chemical? I dunno. It’s Children of Earth: Day Five, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on July 10, 2009.

    Children of Earth is rapidly coming to a close. Which means we’re going to finally move on to the final season of Torchwood which means oh god we’re running out of content. What are we gonna do?!

    Really riding this bean trend a little late.

    Are we all ready to hear the story about the beans? You know the beans that I bought the other day? Well I bought some beans, and I took them home. And then I put them in my pantry. And that’s it. That’s the whole story. It’s better than getting invaded by aliens anyway. Speaking of which, it’s Children of Earth: Day Three, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on July 8, 2009.

    We’re back and tastier than ever.

    Have you ever had meringue on your tea? I’m thinking now, it might not be so bad. The heat from the tea could cook the bottom of the meringue kind of like a hot pie crust would do, so that would be pretty cool. You could drink it then and bury your mustache in a meringue. That’d be pretty fun actually. It’s Revolution of the Daleks, written by Chris Chibnall and aired on January 1, 2021.

    Kind of sounds like me, on the podcast.

    Have we ever had a five episode serial in Doctor Who? We have, right? I’m pretty sure we did but I genuinely don’t remember any more. A lot of classic who has been completely wiped from my mind because I needed the space in my brain for other things. I can’t remember what those things were anymore. It’s Children of Earth: Day One, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on July 6, 2009.

    Besides, we’re covering 50 Shades of Grey on Triple Play at some point soon and it’s better not to make confusing and conflicting post titles.

    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.
