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 171: Show Me Your Moves

This is how we do it….

It’s time for the biggest war known to mankind in the 20th century maybe. The most devastating maybe if you lived in London. Yes I’m talking about World War Z. Er. II. World War II. It’s The Empty Child and The Doctor Dances, written by Stephen Moffat and aired on the 21st and 28th of May, 2005.


Show-notes:


2:17 In media res.
11:17 I wonder how I didn’t know this existed until now.
12:36 John Barrowman has been in stuff like Torchwood and the United States Congress.
25:39 Check out our other podcast Triple Play. Our most recent episode covers Alien: Resurrection.
26:21 .
33:22 Corn on the cob.
52:57 It’s actually Captain Falcon.
53:52 Gan ftw.

Episode 170: Death at a Funeral

Did you know that weddings might as well be funerals?

It’s our first seasonal special episode! Just kidding, we released a few episodes back in the day on Christmas/New Years, not that we marketed those as holiday specials. Also this isn’t really a holiday special, it’s just about an episode called Father’s Day. It was written by Paul Cornell and aired on May 14, 2005.


Show-notes:


2:14 This is the same Nathan from Flight Through Entirety, right?
6:45 Death at a Funeral. Never knew it was a remake of this British movie.
39:38 2007. Just trust me.

Episode 169: These Walls Aren’t Gold

Anybody got some gold I can use?

Back to the Future this week, we’re on a satellite that broadcasts all of the news. Might be a bad idea to give a single satellite an effective monopoly over the news that everybody consumes, but what do I know? It’s The Long Game, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on May 7, 2005.


Show-notes:


18:00.
20:45 Here’s what else Simon Pegg has been in if anyone cares.
26:44 The Reavers.
49:06 Walter Johnson’s chattel principle in his book (paper?) Soul by Soul. He didn’t come up with the term “chattel principle,” he just took it from some slave narrative from the 1800s I think, but he used it to define what he’s talking about in his book. Also I’m pretty sure Walter Johnson is a historian.
49:49 Harriet Jacobs’ Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl was the first (or at least one of the very first) slave narratives written by a woman.

Episode 168: Black Spray-painted Contraption of PVC Pipe

Every single prop is made of PVC.

It only took 5 weeks, but this week we’re cashing in on the most popular Doctor Who villain ever created. We probably could have held out longer, but we need people to listen. It’s Dalek, written by Robert Shearman and aired on April 30, 2005.


Show-notes:

6:09 Sounds like this.
6:58 Nah.
7:41 Cover. Remix. Whatever. Original. “New.” Whatever.
7:56 Johnny Cash’s Hurt. What an awful video.
23:24 It’s Clive Finch. Not Craig Owen, that’s someone else that’s still forthcoming.
32:38 Wouldn’t it be nice?

Episode 167: The Famous London Marsh

Really looking forward to when they bring that back.

This week we return to contemporary London. Well, we did return to contemporary London which is now past London. I think. I don’t remember Big Ben getting taken out by an alien spaceship, but to be fair maybe American didn’t report on that. It’s Aliens of London and World War Three, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on the 16th and 23rd of April, 2005.


Show-notes:


20:10 Probably cleaner and more safe than most of the meat produced in the US.
32:06 It’s probably not true, but according to this clickbait-style article, the doors to the cabinet room are soundproof and the front door is actually reinforced steel and not wood.
39:03 Yeah, it’s 18. Trust me. I just checked.
39:47 The Ferengi from Star Trek. No “funny” comment cause I don’t know anything about Star Trek.
41:12 Yeah, that was the motivation of the aliens in Battle Los Angeles, but it looks like that movie wasn’t that recent.
43:47 Based on this, people who aren’t there probably don’t get to vote.
51:51 Yeah, shepherd’s pie is actually minced shepherd meat cooked into a pie. Apparently it’s become a rare delicacy now that the number of shepherd’s has dramatically decreased.

Episode 166: Strangulation by Dead Grandmother

You shouldn’t be surprised, just because she’s dead doesn’t mean she can’t kill you.

This week it turns out the world actually wasn’t blown up last week. So we had to drag ourselves to the off…garage to record a new episode of Trust Your Doctor. This week it’s The Unquiet Dead, written by Mark Gatiss and aired on April 9, 2005.


Show-notes:


10:26 Christmas Carol can be read here.
18:54 Or if you like longer Dickens stories you can read Martin Chuzzlewit.
26:45 I strongly suggest you don’t read The Fantastic Imagination by George MacDonald.
35:22 Or if you like unfinished Dickens stories, you can read The Mystery of Edwin Drood.

Episode 165: There’s a Sun!?!

Last week (ish) there was a solar eclipse, at which point there briefly wasn’t a sun.

We’re sorry to report that Trust Your Doctor is ending. Turns out the Earth has been destroyed, and we were on it. Bit unfortunate that was, maybe next time we’ll try be as far away as possible when the Earth goes through a catastrophe. It’s The End of the World (as we know it) by Russell T. Davies and aired on April 2, 2005.


Show-notes:


1:07 AND I FEEL FINE
8:01 Is Moxx the Max Rebo of Doctor Who?
11:00 The original 1964 version is by Gloria Jones. Had no idea the song was that old, but the one most people know is the 1981 version by Soft Cell.
11:15 It was a White Shade of Pale featured in Revelation of the Daleks. Also this.
39:16 So simple even a 2 year old could figure it out. Why did they change this again?
43:47 Episode 0. Listen to it if you have no idea what this podcast is.

Episode 164: Evolve or Die

Let me know if there’s a secret third option. That’d be good.

We’re on the downhill slope now. I mean, granted, this is an extremely long downhill slope that’s probably longer than the uphill section. Look, I don’t really know what the heck to call this. It’s a sideways trip. We’re moving leftwards. This week we watched Rose, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on March 26, 2005.


Show-notes:


3:04 Queer as Folk. According to Wikipedia the other shows Davies was famous for are Bob & Rose, The Second Coming, and a couple more, but I haven’t heard of any of them.
4:41 And it was this.
34:02 Spare Parts. Good audio(?) We also have an episode on it.
53:07 Check out our newly recorded episode 0 here.

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.
