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.

Audio Ep. 12: Supposedly

You wouldn’t happen to know what really happened would you?

My memory never cheats. My memory only wins. Every time. This week we’re talking The Memory Cheats, written by Simon Guerrier and released in September of 2011. The Memory Cheats can be purchased for $8 (or your local equivalent) on Big Finish’s website.

Audio Ep. 11: The Blood Tree

Not all trees bleed, but the ones that do… they’re pretty creepy.

I’m pretty certain this is the newest audio drama that we’ve listened to, which is kind of interesting because it’s also about the oldest (and one of the best) TARDIS team on the books. Unless, I guess, if you count just The First Doctor and Susan. Which maybe you should, I don’t know. It’s Domain of the Voord, written by Andrew Smith and released September 2014. Domain of the Voord can be purchased for $11 (or your local equivalent) on Big Finish’s website.


Show-notes:

11:48 Fish Fight is a new movie about some teachers engaging in Star Wars prequel style duels but instead of lightsabers they use frozen fish.
16:01 HE MUST NOT BE FORGOTTEN. Also the Monk was an advisor to him according to some book. What the hell.
20:57 Santorini
27:38 HEY NOW YOU’RE AN ALL ST
29:34 He must really not be forgotten.

Audio Ep. 10: Milking That Hatchet Money

Apparently there are actually 5 Hatchet novels.

This week Trust Your Doctor makes it to the halfway point of the audio drama side-step they did. Which means next week we listen to another first doctor story and then work our way back up again. But this week, it’s The Anachronauts, written by Simon Guerrier and released in January of 2012. The Anachronauts can be purchased for $8 (or your local equivalent) on Big Finish’s website.


Show-notes:


3:33 That audio is called Home Truths if you want to listen to it.
4:01 Monster House a direct-to-dvd Antarctican claymation movie that secretly stars Jean Marsh playing a house that torments its neighbors by playing loud house music.
6:27 STEPPIN ON THE BEACH
11:31 I read Hatchet as a kid. If you’re too lazy to look it up, it’s about a sentient hatchet that goes on hilarious adventures through the Canadian wilderness.
11:40 It’s actually My Side of the Mountain.
12:40 4 sequels, 1 series.
47:56 The Selachian Gambit. Can’t wait to listen to it.

Audio Ep. 9: Eat Light and Die

So this is what it has come to, the eaters of light have to die.

This week we decided to walk across a nice little moor in Scotland. We watched as someone just out of view got struck by lightning. It was really weird, there weren’t even clouds in the sky. We ran over and told us a story, the story of Helicon Prime, relayed to him by Jake Elliott. Apparently the story was first told in November of 2007. Helicon Prime can be purchased for $8 (or your local equivalent) on Big Finish’s website.


Show-notes:


2:28 Season 6B was the B side to Fraser Hines’ hit single “Got those Season 6 Blues”.

Audio Ep. 8: Hyper Ancient

Everybody knows that the hyper ancient >>>> regular ancient.

This week we’ve reached the companion chronicles section of the podcast. Which means we’re at the non full cast audio section of the 16 week adventure. Which also means our episodes might be slightly shorter for a few weeks. Never fear, we’ll return to full 2 and a half hour length glory soon. It’s Ghost in the Machine, written by Jonathon Morris and released October 11, 2013. Ghost in the Machine can be purchased for $8 (or your local equivalent) on Big Finish’s website.


Show-notes:


10:03 10 seconds on Youtube told me that this recording is actually the very first.
27:02 It’s actually from a critique of Descartes by some dude name Gilbert Ryle. I heard it really ryled Descartes up. Ha.

Book Ep. 3: Hate Fiction

Ogrons have a lot of hate stored in them.

This week we drop off the audio train for a little while to do a little mental stimulation. This week we actually had to do work for this podcast and read a book, which is honestly too much brainpower for me. It’s The Romance of Crime, written by Gareth Roberts and and published on January 19, 1995


Show-notes:


9:05 Most people don’t know this but Alcatraz is actually derived from Al Katraz, the famous Arabic poet known for mastering the haiku. One of his most famous poems: Raped by the inmates, and then beaten by the guards, then raped by the guards.
21:30 I never knew The Mask was based on a comic. Then again I never knew real life was based on a comic, so yeah.
21:45 No, he is. Nah I’m just messing with you, he’s not.

Audio Ep. 7: Card Playing Alien

Daleks are probably pretty bad card-players.

This week Mark Gatiss returns to the podcast. Sort of. I mean, he’s not a guest or anything, he’s just written another story that we’re reviewing, which mean’s he’s the first writer to cross mediums for us. It’s Phantasmagoria, written by Mark Gatiss and released in October 1999. Phantasmagoria can be purchased for $3 (or your local equivalent) on Big Finish’s website.


Show-notes:


1:24 Here is more info about false memories. Careful when looking up Berenstein/stain Bears info, people have been known to go missing after they found out too much.
4:56 Rounders was invented in 1760 by a group of disgruntled parakeets who were fed up with the lack of rounders in their society. It has since become one of the most well-known vegetables of all time, and is on display at the museum of natural history in New York, New York, USA.
6:55 RINGS.
9:11 He was an orange.
24:08 Here’s the video if you’re interested, which you shouldn’t be, cause it’s terrifying. I see it every time I blink now.

Audio Ep. 6: A Lesser Disneyland Experience

Maybe we shouldn’t ride Pirates of the Caribbean ride then.

This week it seems we’ve jumped a time-track. We’ll get it back on track shortly, I just need to recalibrate my time scanner… thing. Look, I’ve read the TARDIS manual and I still have absolutely no idea what this part is so I guess I’m just going to throw it out. It’s The Nightmare Fair, written by Graham Williams, adapted by John Ainsworth, and released in November of 2009. The Nightmare Fair can be purchased for $13 (or your local equivalent) on Big Finish’s website.


Show-notes:

0:41 Jamie Robertson’s Doctor Who theme for the Mary Shelly stories.
3:41 More about the Lost Stories audio range and a full list of lost stories.
4:14 Which is The Masters of Luxor. This story is set in Las Vegas, but was rejected for being too unrealistic since it didn’t feature any mafia members. This also made it unreleaseistic, so it never got made.
4:25 That one’s easy to remember, it’s called Genesis of the Genesis of the Ice Warriors of the Daleks.
4:49 The Queen of Time ft. The Queen of Time.
8:37 Nara Dreamland was a Japanese theme park inspired by Disney that opened in 1961 and closed in 2006.
8:50 The same channel as in the link above exploring Six Flags New Orleans.
9:18 A couple articles about Kowloon Walled City. They tore it down more than 20 years ago, but I wish I could’ve seen it in person.
9:52 Judge Dredd is a comic book series/character. There were a couple movie adaptations, including one in 1995, one in 2012. According to the Wikipedia page for Mega City One, where the story takes place, it wasn’t inspired by KWC.
20:11 Maybe this is the article about time going slower when you’re a kid, I don’t know. It’s tl;dr so I have no idea what it says either. Feel free to check it out though. I sure as heck won’t stop you.
26:32 No.

Audio Ep. 5: Wolf Catapult ft. Flight Through Entirety

My cunning plan to win Eurovision is to bring a Wolf Catapult to my performance.

This week we’re joined by Brendan and Nathan for what is quite possibly the most inefficient (but surely the most interesting) summary of a Doctor Who story in existence. The four hosts proceed to spend about 2 hours explaining the 2 hour long story. It might just be quicker to read the wikipedia page for the story while listening to it. But that wouldn’t be as fun, now would it? We also spend upwards of 10 minutes just trying to end the episode. It’s Bang -Bang-a-Boom! written by Gareth Edwards and Clayton Hickman and released in December of 2002. Bang-Bang-a-Boom! can be purchased for $3 (or your local equivalent) on Big Finish’s website.


Show-notes:

10:56 The Mostly Made-up Doctor Who Episode Guide is still one of the best Doctor Who podcasts out there. Why don’t you, uh, go and, uh, take a listen to them? Uh? Right there. Go on. Do it.
7:56 And now with the magic of the internet you can listen to Lulu’s Boom Bang a Bang from Eurovision 1969 whenever you want. Relive the glory days with the power of modern technology. And get off my lawn. There’s not wifi on my lawn.
9:24 Something something something about rights, bla bla, where’s all the cool stuff like those holographic wolves?
13:33 Space:1999: for dummies: like us: cause we knew nothing about it: the wiki article: the animated series: the movie.
35:52 Here’s drwhoguide. Last updates 22-DEC-2013.
1:00:10 Don’t let your dreams be dreams. Follow them. Just like Shia did.
1:47:12 Flight Through Entirety. Also find them at all the other usual places like Facer, Twitbook, etc.

To make your job a bit easier, here’s some links to audios Brendan mentioned: The One DoctorLuna Romana, And the Pirates, The High Price of Parking (the first Mel&Ace one), The Dark Husband, The Wrong  Doctors, The Kingmaker, Red

Audio Ep. 4: I Shot the Sheriff

But I did not shoot the vortisaur.

This is the start of our crazy little romp through Big Finish/Virgin Missing Adventures/questionable quality. It’s Storm Warning, written by Alan Barnes and released in January of 2001. Storm Warning can be purchased for $3 (or your local equivalent) on Big Finish’s website.


Show-notes:


10:56 Room 217 in the book and 237 in the movie.
22:55 Ok, if you like pretty great stories that only take like a minute to read and are also literal trash, here’s Franz Kafka’s Before the Law (one translation of it).
34:43 The de-mat gun, as seen in Invasion of Time. That’s right Rassilon. Yeah. Get out of here. And get your name off this stupid gun. Oh, it’s not on it. Well still get out. Jerk.
