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 180: Little Annoying Twerps Like Me

So I’d say we’re probably pretty annoying little twerps too.

This week we watch a story that says TV is dangerous. But if we’re watching Doctor Who on TV, does that mean that Doctor Who is telling us that watching Doctor Who is bad? This is very confusing stuff this. It’s The Idiot’s Lantern, written by Mark Gatiss and aired on May 27, 2006.


Show-notes:


2:16 June 2nd, 1953 B.C.
4:24 Good (I guess) short history of Elvis’ appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show.
4:42 Muswell Hill is a suburb of London. It looks exactly the same as how it was portrayed in the episode, probably because they just went there to record.
5:52 Kid nab.
16:47 Annette Mills.
17:00 She’s just kidding right? Anyway, what I’m more interested in is the camcorder vision in this video.
24:44 Who the hell wants to hear actors talk?

Episode 179: The Secret Life of Pete’s Wife

Guys I don’t know if this is going to sell….

This week we finally reach the new Cybermen. Because the Cybermen are what we’ve been really waiting for, all of that other nonsense? Doesn’t matter. Daleks? Nope. Autons? Nah. Cybermen. It’s Rise of the Cybermen and The Age of Steel, written by Tom MacRae and aired on the 13th and 20th of May, 2006.


Show-notes:


7:23 High tech high pizza.
8:05 “Starring actual Domino’s employees” – guess that explains why they can’t act to save their lives and why they don’t even seem to know what’s in the sauce or crust.
19:02 Sounds painful.
19:22 I guess it’s actually Don’t Stop me Now. Oh well. Queen is still overrated.
1:05:55 No need to thank me.

Episode 178: Banana Supremacy

Ninety-nine bushels of bananas on the wall…

I have a girl in my fireplace so I don’t know what’s wrong with that really. Although actually now that I think about it my fireplace is gas burning, so maybe I’ve just been hallucinating her this entire time… It’s The Girl in the Fireplace, written by Stephen Moffat and aired on May 6, 2006.


Show-notes:


7:06 I think it was Ghost in the Machine.
13:19 Wow. There you go I guess.
30:56 Not all of them, just most of them.
48:50 The Turk.
49:30 Which you can get here. This actually sounds kind of good.

Episode 177: Dehydrated Rats

In the end, all we need are rats. Wait…

School kind of sucks, but it’s kind of cool too. There’s a big variety in my school experiences, and probably most people’s. I don’t really know where I’m going with this, because honestly I’d prefer not to have to talk about school outside of school. It’s School Reunion, written by Toby Whithouse and aired on April 29, 2006.


Show-notes:


17:36 She was born in 1951, so if the beginning part of Time Warrior took place in 1973 when it aired, then she was 22.
19:01 Third biggest city in Scotland population-wise.
22:13 Now that I look at the Geonosians again, they don’t really remind me of them. But oh well.
30:11 Yeah, this scene from Sherlock looks pretty similar. But the real question is why is the guy who played Moriarty flat out terrible at acting?
38:08 Nightmare fuel.
38:22 Apparently it’s still in production.
49:49 Link to art.
54:41 Just listen to this. Why couldn’t he have put even half this level of effort into Doctor Who?

Episode 176: Boiling Water is Hot

Hot is a relative term though, maybe it’s actually cold.

I’m going to need you to call a doctor as soon as possible. I don’t care which one, it’s just, I’ve been bitten  by this werewolf, and I really don’t know what to do. I’m starting to feel a bit woozy, so if you could hurry up. I’ll be in the hospital here, watching Tooth and Claw, written by Russell T. Davies. As I’m told it originally aired on April 22, 2006.


Show-notes:


18:52 But did she really say “We are not amused?” Radio Times has the answers we’re all looking for. Or not.
23:12 Like we mentioned, it’s the Kohinoor, which is the largest of the Crown Jewels.
26:06 Yeah, believe it or not, dogs actually can get hairballs.
28:53 You don’t get a a picture of it, but this article talks about how the Death Star’s lasers wouldn’t work if it were real.
32:05 This is actually disputed for some reason, but the Australian government says January 1, 1901, so I guess I’ll go with that.
33:55 12 nautical miles.

Episode 175: More Narcissistic Than Ever

Too many mirrors, not enough time to lick them all.

Looks like it’s time for Rose to actually travel with this mysterious, dashing new Doctor. In hindsight, it would be totally in character for the Tenth Doctor to lick the mirror when he looks at himself. Huh. It’s New Earth, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on April 15, 2006.


Show-notes


18:23 Which you can watch here. Probably the only time I’ve heard “backwards” get rhymed with “lack words.”
18:51 Which you can read here. But I highly suggest you don’t.
31:37 Volume 1: Hail to the King of the Jews, Baby!
31:55 Forgot this was directed and written by Mel Gibson.
31:57 The Book of Mormon is a 2011 musical.
34:20 Can’t wait for the new Spaceballs movie next month.

Episode 174: No More Petes, Just Howard

Everybody loves Howard, the new show from the BBC.

As it turns out, the best day to invade Earth is Christmas Day, 2006, when it just so happened the Doctor was totally out of commission. If the Sycorax had just showed up like 4 hours earlier they probably would have totally succeeded. It’s The Christmas Invasion, written by Russell T. Davies, and aired on December 25, 2005.


Show-notes:


10:06 Might as well link this again.
11:25 They’re actually called Roboforms and the Doctor says they behave like pilot fish.
12:40 Yeah, dogs can get hairballs. So wolves probably can too.
14:51 Apparently some people take shark cartilage as a supplement.
19:02 Whiplash from Iron Man 2. He’s not original to the movie obviously. He was created for comics.
22:42 I honestly don’t know if I believe this site or not, but according to it about 34% of people have A+ blood. That means A+ is the second most common blood type after O+. No idea about the royal family, but I did find out they’re Rh negative, which means they don’t have the Rh factor, whatever that is.
26:48 Yeah I am just making that up.
40:23 Controls emotions.
40:55 Immortal jellyfish, aka turritopsis dohrnii. This thing is creepy.
47:34 In regards to sexism in politics, the first episode of Revisionist History does a good job of summing it up. Here’s a Huffington Post article about it.
49:12 Song for 10. I think this is the version heard in this episode.
52:58 Thanks Radio Times.

The Ninth Doctor Retrospective

So its come to this. Reading the Doctor Who Annual.

Can you believe it? We’re just three doctors from catching up to the show. Well, it’ll be three again by this time next year, thanks to Jodie Whittaker. It feels like we’re on a never-ending treadmill of trying to catch up. It’s the Ninth Doctor Retrospective this week, where we also talk about the 2006 Doctor Who Annual, which was published in September 2005.


Show-notes:


2:27 Books. What are they?
3:46 You won’t even believe the truth about this.
12:38 How Watson Learned the Trick.
17:13 The Boscombe Valley Mystery.
17:35 The Six Napoleons and Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle.
33:33 What Queen song?
1:04:22 Junie B. Jones. Kind of sad to see that this series ended a couple years ago.

Episode 173: Setting the Bar So Low You Could Trip Over It

Even I could get over that bar.

Looks like we killed the 9th Doctor. Us. Directly. We called in the Daleks, told them that time was a bit weak around Satellite 5 and all that. We didn’t really expect them to show up to be honest, so imagine our surprise when we watched the Doctor die this week. Sorry about that, guess we shouldn’t be calling intergalactic criminals and genocidal maniacs. It’s Bad Wolf & The Parting of the Ways, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on the 11th and 18th of June, 2005.


Show-notes:


4:06 It was series 7.
5:24 As far as I can tell the house for Big Brother UK has changed its appearance frequently. Here’s a teaser for series 4 of Big Brother UK which aired a while before this episode. From what you can barely make out, it looks kind of similar.
5:34 Yeah, Weakest Link looks exactly the same though.
8:16 The Weakest Link and What Not To Wear were BBC shows, but Big Brother wasn’t.
9:34 What Not To Wear, the British version I guess. I found out what it was called by googling “British fashion tv show with two hosts.”

Episode 172: The Sensation of Wet Socks

How many socks have I lost to the rain?

We’ve engineered the perfect crisis. We’ll just blow this nuclear reactor here, followed by that one there, then launch a space station, then blow it up, then sink half of the eastern seaboard… I’m starting to think this whole making evil plans thing wasn’t as easy as I had originally assumed. It’s Boom Town, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on the 4th of June, 2005.


Show-notes:


6:27 The Wales Millennium Centre. Getting really sick of this “Millennium” huge shiny structure conspiracy.
6:44 The Foreigner. Oops, wrong one.
