Episode 126: Throw a Spleen into a Circuit Board

What the hell is a spleen anyway?

One season closer to the end of classic who. Only 7 more to go! Can you believe that we finished 19 seasons? It actually feels pretty weird. Maybe we can take a time trip back to season 1 and start again… It’s Time-Flight, written by Peter Grimwade and aired in March of 1982.

We’d like to actually, honestly, dedicate this episode to Anton Yelchin.


Show-notes:


5:31 This thing. Everywhere in all of space and time open to you and you want to go here.
8:12 Unless he’s an air traffic controller. Or a TV remote controller. Or a remote controlled car.
10:26 Yeah. There was Scorby from Seeds of Doom. He was kind of a jerk. Go jump in a lake Scorby. Oh wait…
10:52 Well I wouldn’t go that far.
12:58 Roger roger.
18:15 Bioelectronics is a real thing now, but it wasn’t when this episode came out.
18:53 Vestigial organs. The term “vestigial” comes from a corruption of the word “vegetable,” because if you replaced one of these organs with an eggplant or a cabbage you’d never know the difference.
46:17 We said they wouldn’t get a new companion and then 1 second later we were like “yeah, I don’t know.”
47:53 The Wright Flyer was a plane invented by the Wright Brothers after numerous failures with their previous plane, the Wrong Flyer. You don’t want to know about that one.
48:18 Watch and be amazed.
52:52 *cough* …*COUGH COUGH*… *HACK HHHAACCCKGAHAH KAHJSHGJDJDJDJ*… Sorry, just something in my throat.
