Episode 21: Eyepatch Fetish

Don’t you get any ideas, Hollywood.

This week’s episode is a doozy. It’s a weird one, it’s kind of uncomfortable, and we were really weird and woozy because it was midnight when we started recording this. Which means it’s one of the funniest episodes we’ve recorded. Maybe. It’s Hostage, written by Allan Prior and aired on February 27, 1979.


Show-notes:


2:59 Black Mirror is a tv series.
8:32 This isn’t the original site I found it on, but this site also has the Vila’s Emails fanfic.
13:09 Considering Kevin Stoney has 187 acting credits, I’d say he was in a lot.
23:13 Tron was an early example of computer animation in movies.
25:31 Here’s the interview with Sally Knyvette. This is also the same one where she talks about her name.
28:51 The Expanse is the best sci-fi show on television. You heard it here first.
28:59 Killjoys is pretty fun. You heard it here first.
30:00 Oswald was some lucky rabbit or something. Hell if I know.

Episode 201: The Wasp in the Study with the Lead Pipe

Look out! A Wasp!

At the end of this recording session, around 1 in the morning, after recording Zenith, we both walked to our cars. We looked at each other, dead inside, dead on the outside. Just dead all around. “Never again.” It’s The Unicorn and the Wasp, written by Gareth Roberts and aired on May 17, 2008.


Show-notes:


2:36 Cluedo is the original name. According to Wikipedia, it’s a play on the words “clue” and “ludo” which means “I play” in Latin. It was changed to Clue in North America because over here the traditional game of Ludo is known as Parcheesi, so most people wouldn’t get the reference.
4:30 Unicron.
5:12 Ego the Living Planet is a sentient planet from Marvel. I don’t read comics and I try to stay away from comic book movies but I think this guy was in Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2.
5:25 We have a Blake’s 7 podcast called Zenith. It’s alright.
14:57 The Last Man wasn’t Mary Shelley’s second book. I’ve never read this thing at apparently it was mostly ignored in favor of Frankenstein, but it’s starting to get a lot more attention recently.
19:51 According to these bee and wasp articles, wasps can’t grow their stingers back.
21:24 This is what wasp hives look like. Not as cool as bee hives. Another category wasps completely fail in when put up against bees.
23:52 Here’s how you make a Harvey Wallbanger.
32:53 It was actually a mental disability basketball team, but same deal.Spain confirmed for huge cheaters. (Couldn’t find the article.)
34:05 Arsene Lupin is just some guy.

Episode 20: Travis in a Tuxedo

If Travis doesn’t wear a tuxedo in this show I’m rioting.

One of these two people is a killer. A silent killer, which if you think about it is really the only kind of killer they could be if they’re on an audio based podcast. Because they have to talk all the time, you know? Anyway, it’s Killer, written by Robert Holmes and aired on February 20, 1979.


Show-notes:


14:07 yeah I guess Gambril does look kind of like Art Garfunkel.
21:04 Check out our newest episode of Triple Play, our movie trilogy podcast. We discuss Ocean’s 11 and stuff.
30:19 Here’s the forum in case you want to join.
35:37 The movie is Space is the Place. Sun Ra was a jazz composer. The Egyptian god was just Ra.
36:55 Yeah, Neil Armstrong was from Ohio.

Episode 200: Made It To 200

I was finally there, 200 episodes and still no one cares.

Turns out both Kiyan and Dylan have daughters, I mean, who would have guessed that? They have their own podcast, it’s called “She’s Your Doctor” or something like that. You can tell I’m making this up as I go along really. It’s The Doctor’s Daughter, written by Stephen Greenhorn and aired on May 10, 2008.


Show-notes:


0:41 Harry Melling, who played Harry Potter’s annoying cousin, is Patrick Troughton’s grandson.
1:38 Blue Box 250 is a huge collaborative special that Blue Box podcast did for their 250th episode. We were on it but I honestly forgot what we talked about.
19:36 Nice bog there.
23:20 Am I supposed to like this for the early 2000s CG?
32:10 You tell me.

Episode 19: Walking Simulator

You see Roj Blake standing in front of you, what do you do?

Chris Boucher is back. Well he never actually left, but he’s back, or something like that. Travis is back too, but he’s gone rogue now, much like Chris when you think about it. First he was doing Terry’s (Servalan’s) bidding, and now he’s going off and doing his own thing without that pesky overbearing boss. It’s Trial, written by Chris Boucher and aired on February 13, 1978.

28:49 Destroyer is a new comic.
28:59 The Neverending Story is one of the best books ever written. Don’t watch the movies though cause they suck.
38:25 Bondfinger is Bondfinger?

Episode 199: The Sontaran Surprise

Ah! I am so surprised that the Sontarans are in this.

This week we reveal that we’ve installed a super secret system into every car in the world. It’s the Trust Your Doctor Podcast GPS System. It comes with two equally annoying voice options: Dylan and Kiyan. It’s The Sontaran Stratagem and The Poison Sky, written by Helen Raynor and aired on April 26 and May 3, 2008.

Episode 18: Reading Has Fallen Out of Style

Well, at least I can read the movie and watch the book.

This month we watched something that’s been on my list for a long time. They’re pretty different from anything we’ve watched before actually, these are the first proper “heist” movies that we’ve watched for this podcast. We’ve run through quite a gamut of genres so it’s kind of cool to find one we haven’t found it. It’s Oceans Eleven, Twelve and Thirteen, directed by Steven Soderbergh and released in 2001, 2004, and 2007.

Episode 18: BDSM America FT. Sgt. Draino

This week on BDSM America… no I’m not finishing this thought.

Episode 198: You Ood What You Gotta Ood

More ood, more problems.

This week we visit the Sense Sphere again. Well. Sort of. We kind of come close, like the same solar system so that’s pretty close in my mind. And the Ood come back, which I guess means the Sensorites and the Ood are related somehow? It’s Planet of the Ood, written by Keith Temple and aired on April 19, 2008.


Show-notes:

Episode 17: The Ever-Ambiguous They

No one ever claimed we weren’t ambiguous on this podcast, you know.

This show is getting increasingly stressful to edit because I continue to actually forget to do so. I always remember way late at night Monday evening. This is more behind the scenes in formation than you could have ever possibly wanted or desired, but there it is. This week it’s Horizon, written by Alan Prior and aired on January 20, 1979.


Show-notes:


6:33 Blake’s 7 in Character now has more episodes on Colin Baker and Dorian.
