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.

Special Ep. 7: The Real and Better Thirteenth Doctor

All I want you to know is that this is #mythirteenthdoctor.

This week Kiyan and Dylan watch the final little expanded universe thing they’re watching before they get to the reboot. In sticking with completely invented and made up traditions they watched Stephen Moffat’s first contribution to the show. It’s the Curse of Fatal Death, aired on the 12th of March, 1999.


Show-notes:


1:45 It is a telethon and it was founded by Richard Curtis.
24:14 Convenient article called Red Nose Day: What exactly is it? Unfortunately I can’t be bothered to read it, so I still don’t know.

Special Ep. 6: Doctor Who was a Mistake

Unfortunately you all know it’s true.

This week we’ve made the biggest mistake we’ve ever made. But even our biggest mistake (watching this special) can’t compare to how big of a mistake it was for the show to make Dimensions in Time. It was written by John Nathan-Turner and David Roden, and it was aired on the 26th and 27th of November, 1993.


Show-notes:


6:08 Pulfrich Effect.
10:32 Apparently the Pet Shop Boys are a musical duo. They’ve been around since 1981, so that must mean their music is bad enough for people to like it.
11:30 It’s kind of a Big Deal.
26:00 Check out our other podcast, Triple Dip.

Book Ep. 4: Embrace Lung Cancer

That’s how we all end I guess.

Here we reach the end of our run through the Doctors from 8 down to 1 and back up again. Two weeks of random other TV things, then we finally reach Rose. Finally. Thank god. It’s Mad Dogs and Englishmen, written by Paul Magrs and released on January 7, 2002.


Show-notes:


3:45 The 99th BBC Doctor Who novel is apparently The Adventuress of Henrietta Street, if this site is to be believed.
19:54 Here’s a picture of arctic char for your enjoyment.
5:59 Check out our other podcast, Triple Flip. We recently covered the Aladding “trilogy.”
51:50 List of movie that took a long time to make.
51:54 Looks bad.
53:48 System Shock? No, just Bioshock.

Audio Ep. 17: Brutally Boring

Can you feel the change in the podcast? We’re going back to TV.

This week Kiyan and Dylan are approaching the end of the Dark Years diversion. They’ve listened to their final audio for now, they’ve read their final book (you’ll have to wait until next week) and so it draws almost neatly to a close. Almost. But not quite. Master was written Joseph Lidster and released in October of 2003. Master can be purchased for $3 (or your local equivalent) on Big Finish’s website. It’s also on Spotify.


Show-notes:


5:59 It was McKinley.
12:29 “Son of a bitch.”
17:53 It was Mrs. Norris. Thank god Harry Potter is over. It’s over, right? Right?
21:51 I didn’t look too hard obviously, but there really wasn’t anything definitive about green being considered the color of death significantly at a certain place/time. So yeah.
22:02 Monster House is a movie.
52:11 I won’t let my dreams be dreams I guess.
Also discussed in this episode: Goodnight Saigon by Billy Joel.

Audio Ep. 16: I’m a Real Penguin

As it turns out, Penguins are the third largest flightless bird in the world after the Australian emu and the German mole rat.

After last week’s rather depressing adventure, Kiyan and Dylan are back to talk about a much more uplifting and funny… oh nevermind. Well it started funny and uplifting. It… just didn’t end that way. It’s The Holy Terror, written by Robert Shearman and released in November of 2000. The Holy Terror can be purchased for $3 (or your local equivalent) on Big Finish’s website. It’s also on Spotify.


Show-notes:


1:02 The M4 Sherman?
8:21 Googling “dammit dammit dammit” told me it’s from Robot Chicken, so let’s go with that.
11:32 According to “Jeffrey Tan, coach for sleeping habits,” no, you can’t drown asleep.
21:11 Surprisingly the punchline of R. Kelly’s “Trapped in the Closet” isn’t that he’s coming out of the closet. I think. I never finished it. And it’s still ongoing, so who knows?
23:57 Her name was Genie. No relation to the Disney character Genie, from the romantic comedy fantasy animated feature film Aladdin.
29:34 Ursula Le Guin’s “Why Are Americans Afraid of Dragons?” Knock yourself out.
38:03 Really hope that comic book bubble bursts soon. And that Neil Gaiman bubble.
44:12 Couldn’t find it within 30 seconds on Google, so I gave up!
47:04 A morphologist is someone who studies morphology. Duh.

Audio Ep. 15: Cyberman Sitcom ft. The Krynoid Podcast

Everybody is getting cyberized in Young and Cyber. Coming soon.

This week Jim and Martin make a tepid return to Trust Your Doctor. Apparently they really like Cybermen because if you’ve been paying attention the first time they were on this glorious show was to talk about Revenge of the Cybermen. If you haven’t been paying attention, now you know. Also, we chose this story quite some months ago (almost 6) so the fact that it corresponds nicely with World Enough and Time and The Doctor Falls is legitimately a coincidence. But we talk about them anyway. Obliquely. It’s Spare Parts, written by Marc Platt and released in July of 2002. Spare Parts can be purchased for $3 (or your local equivalent) on Big Finish’s website. It’s also on Spotify.


Show-notes:


6:38 Alternate limited edition cover.
1:23:27 Mostly Made Up Doctor Who Episode Guide is one of the best Doctor Who podcasts out there. Here’s their feed.
1:25:32 Check out Krynoid Podcast’s website, with links to all their other various channels. Seriously. Do it. They just put out their Stones of Blood episode. So that’s probably good.

Audio Ep. 14: The Mysterious British Part of America

No one even knows where this supposed British part even is.

This week we actually hear Tom Baker for the first time in 20 years! Can you believe it? He sounds…. exactly the same. Honestly don’t know what I expected actually. It’s The Valley of Death, written by Philip Hinchcliffe, adapted by Jonathon Morris, and released January of 2012. The Valley of Death can be purchased for $45 as part of the Fourth Doctor Boxset (or your local equivalent) on Big Finish’s website. It’s also on Spotify.

26:45 Meet Dave.
52:53 Krynoid podcast.

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.

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.
