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.

312: Radically Useless (Captain Jack Harkness)

A whole new level of useless!

I’d like to be a captain. I think it’d be pretty cool to be Captain Dylan or Captain Kiyan. Imagine if we were both captains, and then it would be Captain Dylan and Captain Kiyan discuss Torchwood. Now wouldn’t that be absolutely wild? And then someone could steal our name and… It’s Captain Jack Harkness, written by Catherine Tregenna and aired on December 31, 2006.

311: Suicide by Weevil (Combat)

Gotta watch out for those Weevil fanatics

Trial by combat takes on a new form when instead of combating each other they combat Weevils. Julius Caesar would be proud of the changes we’ve made to the format. At least I would hope so, since it really is an improvement. Now we only need to put one life at risk at a time. It’s Combat, written by Noel Clarke and aired on December 24, 2006.

310: Topological Memessance (Out of Time)

I met a mathematician once, but he didn’t want to talk about memes.

Sometimes I forget to edit everything, and then I realize that I too am out of time. Just like everyone in this episode. Can you imagine if one day I was editing, and I paused to go to the store and just teleported a million years into the future? What if I found out our podcast had suddenly become a smash cult hit in that time, that’d be super weird. It’s Out of Time, written by Catherine Tregenna and aired on December 17, 2006.


Show-notes:


1:45: Know Your Meme calls this Distracted Boyfriend.

309: Lawn and Order (Random Shoes)

Zoom zoom look at my lawn mower.

There’s a notably small amount of discussion of Torchwood in this episode. I’m not really sure why. Maybe it’s because the episode was boring as hell. No really, it was really boring! And Eugene wasn’t really that sympathetic, he’s a stalker! Well anyway. It’s Random Shoes, written by Jacquetta May and aired on December 10, 2006.

308: Gween and the Green Knight (They Keep Killing Suzie)

The more podcasts we do the more I think we should just do The Avengers.

So one day I was just walking along right, and then this girl just pops out of nowhere and stabs me! And then she uses this glove and brings me back and I’m like, what the heck. Well then I was gone again, but while I was gone she stabbed me. Again! And brought me back and so on and so forth anyway long story short I can’t die anymore. It’s They Keep Killing Suzie, written by Paul Tomlin and Dave McCulloch  and aired on December 3, 2006.

307: Decorative VeggieTales ft. Steven (Greeks Bearing Gifts)

We should’ve named our website that, what were we thinking?

Aw man I feel like I really missed out by never watching veggietales. I mean for real so many people seem to have considered it an integral part of their childhood. Everyone on the internet talks about it as if it was some sort of great revolution in childhood television and I’m over here having not watched it. Damn.

306: The Village People are In Control of Everything (Countrycide)

I’m about to crack this conspiracy wide open.

A lovely stroll with the Village People. I look out across the village. We are happy here. We listen to Go West every day, on repeat. In the Navy is our national anthem. And when we’re feeling really risque, we’ll listen to YMCA. We’ve all heard it so many times we can recite the dance from memory. It is a good life. It’s Countrycide, written by Chris Chibnall and aired on November 19, 2006.

305: Big Finish, Open Up! (Small Worlds)

The year is 2099. Big Finish prowls the street looking for non-Doctor Who fans.

I had never even made any association between this and the really annoyingly catchy Disney song until right this second. And now that I’ve made that association I’m not going to be able to unmake it. Plus now you’ve probably got that song stuck in your head, and you know what? You’re welcome. It’s Small Worlds, written by PJ Hammond and aired on November 12, 2006.


Show-notes:


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

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

304: The UNIT Effect (Cyberwoman)

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

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

33:47: “What’s the point of being grown up if you can’t be childish sometimes?” is apparently from Robot, at least according to the BBC.
35:40: Not this shit again.
1:10:30: Yeah, I couldn’t find it.
1:26:40: Amazing quote

303: Complementary Desert Eagle (Ghost Machine)

Not to be confused with Ghost IN The Machine.

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


Show-notes:


3:45: Relive our golden years with Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast or our sad attempt to recapture the magic with Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast.
18:33: Here’s the link to our April Fool’s episode… I still can’t believe we did this.
28:25: Meant 90 degrees here.
55:36: Apparently you can bleed out in as little as 5 minutes.
1:26:38: I can’t believe I’ve never heard of Chocolate Rain sequel Cherry Chocolate Rain.
1:27:44: Blue Jeans and Bloody Tears for Eurovision 2020.
1:31:29: Hey, it’s Fred!
