247: It’ll Never Get That Bad Again (The Day of the Doctor)

We’re out of it now.

This week Kiyan and Dylan finally put the first 50 years of the podcast to rest. I mean the first 50 years of Doctor Who. Same thing in the end, really, when you think about it. The podcast has existed as long as the show has, didn’t you know that? I thought it was common knowledge but I suppose there is a possibility that it wasn’t. Well now you know. It’s The Day of the Doctor, written by Steven Moffat and aired on November 23, 2013.


Show-notes:


5:45 The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot. Knock yourself out.
7:37 The Night of the Doctor and The Last Day.
18:00 Pretty much every source out there ranks these differently. Some don’t include non-elected leaders and some don’t count Donald Trump as a politician. Here’s just one list. The one I was looking at obviously forgot to include Narendra Modi. Also the queen of Jordan’s name is Rania Al-Abdullah.
24:39 Check out our Blake’s 7 podcast, Zenith.
29:19 Based on these medieval manuscripts, it looks like last millennia’s royal weddings were attended more by nobles than by normal people.
37:21 Genesis of the Remembrance.
38:29 Harry Sullivan did leave in Terror of the Zygons.

246: Do Androids Dream of Electric Peeps? (The Name of the Doctor)

I’m pretty sure electric peeps would suck even worse than normal peeps.

You know, we kind of have experience with dealing with something we like to pretend doesn’t exist. It’s called Trust Your Doctor, Episode 1. We even rerecorded it like 5 years later, and then literally replaced it in the podcast feed so no one would see the original version. Kind of like our version of the War Doctor. Except you can still totally find episode 1. As if I’d tell you where though. It’s Name of the Doctor, written by Steven Moffat and aired on May 18, 2013.


Show-notes:


18:20 According to Paul’s Unofficial Letterbox Pages, “Most houses in Britain have a letter box in the front door, usually a simple slot with a flap over it, through which the post is delivered each morning.” No mention of personal mailboxes outside people’s houses like you see in the states.
21:25 And thus the essence of all crime is undivulged.
20:19 I think the only thing I’ve linked to more than this River Song timeline is the asteroid/meteor/meteorite differences table thing from nasa.
25:08 Arrival is a movie about alien linguistics.
33:49 Some of the best J.K. Rowling tweets.
55:02 Check out our Blake’s 7 podcast, Zenith.

Episode 23.5: I Like it When I Don’t Watch it

The age old conundrum.

Coming soon to your television screens: Trust Your Doctor: Animated Adventures. We’ve hired an obscure animation studio from Trenzalore, who specialize in 3-D hand drawn animation. We’ve reimagined ourselves as high school students just setting out on a podcasting adventure, which is weird, because that’s actually what happened. So it’s not really a reimagining. It’s Iron Man: Armored Adventures, which released on April 24, 2009.


Show-notes:


3:08 Bubbles is the blue one, Buttercup is the red one, Blossom is the green one.
3:40 It was Thundercats Roar. I guess I was so disgusted that I couldn’t even get the name right.
23:07 Snow White is 83 minutes. Alice in Wonderland is 75 minutes.
28:17 Check out Zenith, our Blake’s 7 podcast, if you want to hear us discuss material that’s way better than this.

Here’s all the stuff we mentioned in this episode:
Powerpuff Girls
Dexter’s Lab
Flinstones
Jetsons
Jackie Chan Adventures
90s Iron Man tv show
X-Men The Animated Series
Batman the Animated Series
Batman Beyond
The Batman
Teen Titans (Go (to The Movies))
Spirited Away
Machinima
RWBY
Red vs. Blue

245: Nightmare in Quicksilver (Nightmare in Silver)

What ever happened to Quicksilver anyway?

In about twenty years I’m hoping to buy Disneyland. Why, you might ask? Because I want to rebuild it in our image. I want to build an entire Trust Your Doctor themed theme park. We’ll have the Aztecs land, where we just have people walk around dressed as Tegana. And then there’ll be the Koquillian cosplayers and… It’s Nightmare in Silver, written by Neil Gaiman and aired on May 11, 2013.


Show-notes:


6:54 The Quicksilver secene in X Men Days of Future Past is an instant classic. The knockoff followup in Apocalypse is just embarrassing in comparison.
8:36 Check our our nearly dead Blake’s 7 podcast Zenith. Actually it’s on life support, barely hanging on thanks to us constantly mentioning it on Trust Your Doctor.
10:10 The rides in Wonder Park look really safe.
12:32 Footage of Six Flags New Orleans
13:50 It was The Silver Turk, released in 2011.
15:18 Fool’s mate can be done in just 4 moves (2 turns on each side).

244: Lucasarts Did it First (The Crimson Horror)

One day we’ll be able to prove that, but not today.

When we recorded this there was a bout a 15 minute period where we just got paralyzed with fear. Turns out the Crimson Horror is the lobster we bought as a pet for the podcast. Of course, we’re only ever in the recording room once a week so the poor guy didn’t get much socialization. You might think he died, well actually he just came up with a extremely convoluted plan to overthrow the podcast. It’s The Crimson Horror, written by Mark Gatiss and aired on May 4, 2013.


Show-notes:


0:31 Damn my past self for asking me to link to this.
1:53 Last year Ahmed Best revealed he almost killed himself over the backlash against his role as Jar Jar. We discussed some of the reasons against the backlash years ago on our movie trilogy podcast Triple Play.
7:05 Check out our Blake’s 7 podcast, Zenith.
11:50 Space Fall is a great Blake’s 7 podcast.
33:00 Can’t blame Disney for this.

243: Elon Musk’s New “Innovation” (Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS)

How many things has Elon invented now?

Trust Your Doctor is a complex beast. We record in an office so sparse and huge it’s comparable to the TARDIS itself. We even have a whole room just singularly dedicated to cotton candy. Like. It’s just walls and walls of cotton candy machines. That’s all that’s in there. This is a 100% true fact. It’s Journey to the Center of the TARDIS, written by Steve Thompson and aired on April 20, 2013.


Show-notes:


0:37 The Rock was actually in the sequel to the 2008 Journey to the center of the Earth, Journey 2: The Mysterious Island.
1:19 Michael Caine on Jaws: The Revenge: “No [I haven’t seen it]. But I have seen the house it bought for my mum. It’s fantastic.”
1:49 Check out our discussion of Iron Man on our other podcast Triple Play.
14:09 Challenger was the one in 1986 that blew up when it took off. Columbia was the one that blew up when it was coming back in 2003.
25:22 Not gonna link the 2018 Slender man trailer again. That thing gave me nightmares last week. Instead have this harmless wikipedia link.
33:49 Free Solo is a movie about a guy who climbs mountains without equipment.
40:43 Here’s the documentary from 1986.
47:10 Young Goodman Brown.

242: Floral Print Pants (Hide)

Nooo, not the floral print, please, not the floral print!

The other day we were recording the podcast and then suddenly discovered that our recording studio is haunted. We’re currently being haunted by our great-great-great-great-grandchildren. Weirdly enough they’re still doing a podcast that far in the future. If you all wanted to know when Doctor Who would end, I can tell you it doesn’t end before our descendants get their grubby hands all over our podcast. It’s Hide, written by Neil Cross and aired on April 20, 2013.


Show-notes:


1:30 Neil Cross’ only ongoing show is Luther. I thought his other show Hard Sun was still ongoing but it’s not.
2:22 Omega tried to harness the power of antimatter in Arc of Infinity.
5:11 Here’s all the other stuff Jessica Raine and Dougray Scott have been in.
6:02 Horace Walpole wrote the Castle of Otranto.
12:27 Next time I have any problem, big or small, supernatural or not, I know who I’m gonna call.
18:20 Check out our Blake’s 7 podcast Zenith.
20:10 Truth or Dare is a recent horror movie from Blumhouse. And yeah the characters in it are really dumb.
21:31 Here’s the blog post that maps out all the references to Cumbria.
36:25 The projector scene from the new It.
40:59 Slender Man was a meme horror character from like 5-10 years ago. There was a Slender Man movie last year (warning: the link is to an official trailer with some scary shit in it, watch at your own risk).
45:43 It was Monster of Peladon.
53:18 Playing in the Dark
54:51 Time dilation sounds like some complicated shit.
55:31 Must suck to be Sarah Winchester. (Disclaimer: I didn’t actually read any of this page)
59:15 Thomas Pynchon may be a secretive reclusive, but he lent his voice to The Simpsons at one point.
59:24 The Last Question is actually by Isaac Asimov.

Episode 23: Superhero Movies Are Not Grounded

Well this is the biggest plot twist of our lifetime.

Last time we got stuck in a cave we were forced to start a podcast, and that’s how we got Zenith. Frankly we all know how that turned out. Pretty well actually. All the best things are made in caves at gunpoint. It’s Iron Man, Iron Man 2, and Iron Man 3. Unlike two months ago these movies are actually connected in a trilogy.


Show-notes:


4:53 Our Spider Man episode. I thought this was more recent.
6:00 Terry Rossio and Ted Elliot.
12:26 This Daredevil movie that came out in 2003. I thought this was more recent too.
13:12 Happy Hogan is played by Jon Favreau in a lot of these Marvel movies.
18:38 Quantum of Solace: 2008. Skyfall: 2012. Spectre: 2015.
30:46 Matthew Libatique is the director of photography for Iron Man 2.
38:08 Iron Man is by Black Sabbath.
51:20 Genndy Tartakovsky is a Russian-American animator who storyboarded Iron Man 2 and created Sym-bionic Titan, which was cancelled for merchandising reasons.
56:56 We also did an episode on The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly (and the other Dollars movies) a few years ago.

Robert Downey Jr.’s improvisation in Iron Man 3

241: Check Out Duran Duran (Cold War)

Only true Duran Duran fans listen to this podcast.

You know, sometimes I wonder how hard it must have been if you were an American or British spy and you were sent into Russia. You have to spend months, if not years, learning Russian, and then you have to perfect it to the point where you have basically no accent at all. And then if you do have an accent, well, good luck buddy you’ll probably get shot on sight. It’s Cold War, written by Mark Gatiss and aired on April 13, 2013.


Show-notes:


1:38 The Seeds of Death was in season 6, The Seeds of Doom was in season 13.
10:38 Ronald Reagan: 1981-1989. George H.W. Bush: 1989-1993. Bill Clinton: 1993-2001.
11:30 It was Yuri Andropov.
16:16 We (I) got some stuff wrong here, but wikipedia has a pretty good article on Japanese holdout. Hiroo Onoda is probably the most famous.
17:00 We also do a movie trilogy podcast called Triple Play.
19:30 According to Manatee-World, manatees can’t live in water below 60 degrees Fahrenheit, so there aren’t any arctic manatees.
25:17 It looks like Sony still makes the Walkman as an mp3 player.
34:37 Images of the Cold War playset.
43:17 According to imdb, Jenna Coleman was born on 27 April 1986, making her 32 right now. Her bio doesn’t mention anything about her early life that would be linguistically interesting, so I don’t know what, if anything, is up with her accent.

240: Russell “Rose Tyler” Davies (The Rings of Akhaten)

How many Rose Tyler jokes can we make before this gets old?

If you believe the fan theory that Doctor Who is just based on someone going back in time and reconstructing what the episodes should look like based on our podcast then by that theory our podcast represents not only how Doctor Who is, but how it could have been, how it should have been, and how it wasn’t. We literally represent every possible timeline of Doctor Who, right here in this podcast. Hey if it Stephen Moffat can do it so can I. It’s The Rings of Akhaten, written by Neil Cross and aired on April 7, 2013.


Show-notes:


0:56 I’m guessing this is other Russel Davies.
1:49 Dwayne The Rock Johnson (a.k.a. the Fourteenth Doctor) usually eats like a week’s worth of food on Sundays.
2:19 The other shows Neil Cross writes/wrote for.
11:37 One’s near a church, the other’s not. That’s it.
18:50 This is the billionth time I’ve linked to this chart and I have become exceedingly efficient at it.
20:44 it was the Dogon people from Mali, actually in West Africa.
33:48 The Hath.
57:07 Unicron is a planet-sized Transformer.
57:40 I actually miss Blake’s 7 and the podcast we made about it, Zenith.
