Category Archives: Trust Your Doctor

In this stunning podcast, two average guys try to get through as much Doctor Who as possible without going insane. Currently they’re mainlining their way through Classic Doctor Who. 800 episodes or bust, they say. And on the side, well. Books, Audio Dramas, Comics?!? Anything is possible! So in summary: They’re trying to see how much Doctor Who they can take before dying.

Episode 197: 2008 Was 10 Years Ago

Everything we talk about happened 10 years ago.

Donna Noble has been saved oh shit no wait that’s the wrong story. Spoilers, sweetie. No in this one Donna saves people, like 4 of them, she forces the Doctor to. Easy mistake to make, I just swapped it around. It’s Fires of Pompeii, written by James Moran and aired on April 12, 2008.


Show-notes:


2:18 Some good Greek and Roman fonts at dafont.com. I’m sure you can tell which is which.
10:19 It was Rome.
13:52 Here’s what Phil Davis has been in. Mostly a lot of British TV stuff.

Episode 196: Trust Your Moptor

Everyone needs a mop, much the same way everyone needs a thneed.

It’s the beginning of the end. Russell T. is on his way out, he practically has one foot out of the door already, it’s his final season. He’s probably already given up actually, it’s just over now. It’s Partners in Crime, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on April 5, 2008.


Show-notes:


1:37 And what they’re referring to is Don Cheadle replacing Terrence Howard.
1:49 Check out our Blake’s 7 podcast Zenith.
21:20 They’re just called window cleaning platforms.
34:20 Official song about Stacy’s mom. Unfortunately doesn’t include her mourning her daughter’s death.

Episode 195: Space Gold

So over here we have the latin– space gold. Almost got sued right there.

This week one of us watches Time Crash, while the other doesn’t. That has to be a first for this show. I’m almost certain it is. After that we both actually watched the episode for the week, so that’s good at least. It’s Voyage of the Damned, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on December 25, 2007.


Show-notes:


8:36 Wikipedia has a really extensive article on Kylie Minogue so her discography and entire career should be here.
16:35 Learn how to make your own Blake’s 7 teleporter bracelet from this Blue Peter segment.
19:02 Urban Dictionary has our backs. As always.
20:01 This is the millionth time I have posted this meteor/meteorite/comet chart thing, and I have become exceedingly efficient at it.

Episode 194: Some Semblance of a Budget

And to think we’ve come far since the days of styrofoam avalanches … but not that far.

This is the longest episode we’ve put out in a long time. It’s over an hour and a half long, and somehow it’s actually sort of interesting for the entire episode, which is really saying something. Remember our War Games episode? Good times. It’s Utopia, The Sound of Drums, and Last of the Time Lords, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on June 16, 23 and 30th, 2007.


Show-notes:


11:58 Stop Crying Your Heart Out is really one of Oasis’ worst songs.
27:26 Yeah, Derek Jacobi has a pretty extensive career.
29:03 As does John Simm.
50:35 Rose gets a TARDIS key in Aliens of London.
1:03:13 Here’s the scene from Watchmen. And here’s the equally-bad one from Ironman.
1:06:01 Tom Ellis is Lucifer. Lucifer is Tom Ellis.
1:09:48 Rolanda Hooch is played by Zoe Wanamaker, who plays Cassandra in series 1 and 2.
1:13:26 Plo Koon. He’s Plo Koon.
1:18:26 The mirror universe from Star Trek sounds pretty “cool” I guess.

(One and Done) Episode 1: Don’t Listen to This

This is not a joke, we’re done with Doctor Who.

Let the past die, kill it if you have to. And we did. Trust Your Doctor is dead. I’m sorry if you liked the show, but it’s done now. We’re going to replace it with a podcast that has much less overhead, it takes less time to make, and edit, and is just generally easier. Sorry. This week we review Trust Your Doctor Episode 1, which released on January 24, 2014.


Show-notes:


0:20 Trust Your Doctor is dead. Long live One and Done.
1:01 Zenith is still going though.
1:32 RIP in pieces 42 to Doomsday.
1:36 Never heard of Complete Menagerie.
6:50 Here’s The Great Titanic Conspiracy on Amazon if you want to get it for some reason.

Episode 193: Sad is Happy

Everyone gets it wrong, look happy is sad, sad is happy, that’s how it works now.

What’s the equivalent of blinking for your ears? Folding them over? Something like that. Well don’t do that, if you do that while you’re listening to this episode you’ll die. So don’t do that. It’s Blink, written by Stephen Moffat and aired on June 9, 2007.


Show-notes:


1:08 It was Russel T.
1:40 Check out our Ninth Doctor Retrospective. It’s basically a shorter version of Blink, with Sally Sparrow being a little girl who needs to write a report. Also no Weeping Angels.
13:34 Turns out Mark StrickSON has had a long and varied career.
38:30 Even the poster is mediocre.
40:56 Check out this extremely detailed and informative documentary about the making of the Weeping Angels. I can personally say that I’m now enlightened having watched this.
55:15 The Doctor Who Youtube channel has the full Curse of Fatal Death special. Check it out. I triple dog dare you.

Episode 192: Doctor Who Baked Beans

Let’s just file that under “never again.”

This week we disguise ourselves as humans. You do remember we’re not actually humans right? We’re renegade podcast lords, we established that way back when we started the podcast. It’s Human Nature and The Family of Blood, written by Paul Cornell and aired on May 26th and June 2nd, 2007.


Show-notes:


5:15 Atlantis is the greatest Disney movie ever made.
9:15 Where the Red Fern Grows is a book about a kid and two dogs. Spoiler, the dogs obviously die at the end.
9:15 Bridge to Terebithia is another kids book. There were a couple movie versions, but the most recent one was in 2007.
12:23 Maze Runner is yet another kids’ book. Sounds terrible, and the movie is probably worse, but what do I know?
36:19 Just why.
46:03 Split is a movie that came out a couple years ago. Apparently it’s a sequel to a movie that came out in 2000.

Episode 191: Kill the Sun

Perhaps we need to rethink our goals for this podcast…

This week we remind everyone that Nokia totally collapsed. That’s right, that really big phone manufacturer totally ruined themselves. It was no one’s fault but their own. It’s 42, written by Chris Chibnall and aired on May 19, 2007.


Show-notes:


0:28 This year’s Eurovision is only a few months away.
1:30 24 ran for more than 200 episodes over like 9 seasons. Jesus.
3:32 Yeah, they do make smartphones. Look at that 3310.
5:12 You can still check out the prologue story thing.
18:09 John Carpenter used his “phone a friend” on Who Wants to be a Millionaire to tell his dad he knew the answer.
22:45 Check out our Blake’s 7 podcast Zenith.
31:54 RIP.
35:20 Challenger was the one that blew up when it launched. That was in 1986. Columbia was the one that disintegrated during reentry in 2003.

Episode 190: Wet Bone Cracking

Only on Doctor Who will you hear “wet” bone cracking. Ew.

You might say that the man who wrote this story is a greenhorn. You know, like a guy who is new or inexperienced at the task at hand. No? Never mind. It’s The Lazarus Experiment, written by Stephen Greenhorn, and aired on May 5, 2007.


Show-notes:


11:34 Obviously they’re called nibblies.
7:52 The BBC actually only runs ads now. No more content.
9:52 Series 11 is actually 50 minutes, not 60.
16:30 Mark Gatiss plays Sherlock’s brother Minecraft.
14:47 The League of Gentlemen. The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen is a comic.
20:49 Hypersonic is a speed.
28:27 Yeah, they’re still together.
32:26 Think you combined The Mummy Returns and The Scorpion King there.
44:17 Season 18, not 17.

Episode 189: Hovering Over Hooverville

So many hoovers, so little time.

And now, Martha Jones in her first two parter. Featuring the Daleks, because bloody hell do the Daleks ever not appear? Can you imagine if they named an episode “Mystery of the Daleks” and then didn’t have the Daleks appear at all? The mystery is, where are they? It’s Daleks in Manhattan and Evolution of the Daleks, written by Helen Raynor and aired on April 21 and 28, 2007.


Show-notes:


14:47 More about the building of the Empire State Building here.
18:36 They should start using man o’ wars in actual wars.
19:18 They should bring these back to actual warfare too.
25:09 This was all I could find about the “Daleks have to appear every season” rumor.
39:51 Our movie trilogy podcast Triple Play has conditioned me to think of Star Wars whenever anyone says “Do it”
