Episode 215: Very Creative Deaths

They weren’t important anyway.

Weirdly enough, as I’m writing this, I just woke up from a dream about Blake’s 7. Which is weird because I’ve never dreamt about Doctor Who even though I’ve been watching it forever. Really disconcerting actually. Weird. It’s Amy’s Choice, written by Toby Whithouse and aired on May 15, 2010.


Show-notes:


4:02 Sophie’s Choice is a 1979 book by William Stryton.
6:03 Probably The Confessions of Nat Turner.
9:07 The Valeyard was supposedly from between the Doctor’s twelfth and final incarnation. The novelization says that he’s somewhere between the twelfth and thirteenth incarnation. I guess all of this isn’t true anymore or just not considered in the modern show.
12:29 Stetson is a hat brand with a really interesting history.
14:42 We discussed bottle episodes when we discussed Sarcophagus on Zenith, our Blake’s 7 podcast.
20:57 Gee I wonder why this flopped.

Episode 214: Broom is Doomed

And so the age of brooms is over. I for one welcome our new mop overlords.

Well, this week we sparkle. Not that you can really tell, because it’s an audio podcast and not a video podcast, but just trust me, we are. We have the blinds open and the sun is streaming in and we’re just dying while we record. It’s The Vampires of Venice, written by Toby Whithouse and aired on May 8, 2010.


Show-notes:


7:15 This could have been an interesting thread about the differences between a stag party and a bachelor party until some no-fun-allowed nerds decided to close it for being off topic.
11:38 Check out Zebra, the world’s number like 3 or 4 Blake’s 7 podcast.
12:45 According to New World Encyclopedia, the population of Venice was around 124,000 in 1581.
24:48 Arachne I guess? But it looks like she more gets transformed into a spider.
29:35 Rosanna or Roseanne? Who rosanned better?
35:29 Toby Jones was the really famous British actor who plays the villain in Amy’s Choice.

Episode 213: Dart in the Dartboard of History

Really want to know how to play darts, honestly.

The angels are back. River Song is back. Stephen Moffat is already doing the “Greatest Hits of Stephen Moffat” and it’s first season and like fourth story. Good start. It’s The Time of Angels & Flesh and Stone, written by Stephen Moffat and aired on April 24, and May 1, 2010.


Show-notes:


2:50 We bring up most of the Alien movies here. Is Alien one of those franchises that should just be let go and left to rest in peace? Maybe.
10:18 Black box? More like wack box, cause these things aren’t box-y enough at all. Also known as a flight recorder I guess.
19:43 Jesus.
35:04 Look at the Special Weapons Dalek. Just look at it. And people were mad about the New Paradigm?

Episode 212: War is for Kids

Only on Doctor Who can kids participate in that age old game known as war.

This week Dylan and Kiyan visit Winston Churchill. Turns out he’s as much of a hot head dick as everybody actually portrays him to be. Nobody here is actually surprised. Well maybe one person is surprised. I wasn’t surprised. It’s Victory of the Daleks, written by Mark Gatiss and aired on April 17, 2010.


Show-notes:


10:16 Here’s Ian McNiece’s filmography. I don’t think I’ve seen him in anything else.
18:58 FROBISHER
21:53 Just email us if you want Electric Ant and I’ll send you the full pdf of it.
23:02 On Exactitude in Science by Jorge Luis Borges.
41:31 Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima. February 23, 1945.
46:40 The Special Weapons Dalek was a dalek with a massive gun from Remembrance of the Daleks. Forgot about this freaking crazy design. This is honestly more offensive than the paradigmers from this story, but I guess nobody cared enough about Doctor Who in the 80s to cause a big fuss.

Episode 211: Sonic Fidget Spinner

That’s 2018 for you.

We’re already deep in the Stephen Moffat era and frankly we’re done with this nonsense. Bring on Chibnall honestly, space whales, seriously? I’m done. It’s The Beast Below, written by Stephen Moffat and aired on April 10, 2010.


Show-notes:


1:39 London has royal parks, which used to be royal hunting grounds, and garden squares, which used to be private residences.
9:05 Check out the sonic screwdriver count on our site. Might not be up to date though.
46:51 It’s Freewill by Rush.

Episode 210: Long Live the King

Can you believe we finally got a Lion King/Doctor Who crossover?

This week we do a total reboot of the podcast. Complete restart. Everything is going straight back to the beginning, we’re starting it all over. We’ve scrapped the format. We’ve started again. As the show is too! It’s The Eleventh Hour, written by Steven Moffat and aired on April 3, 2010.


Show-notes:


10:18 What I Did In My Christmas Holidays By Sally Sparrow is a story by Stephen Moffat and the story Blink was based on. The BBC has the whole story up on this page.
11:36 Rose was the first episode filmed of the first series. After Rose they went right to Aliens of London.
13:15 All of what Framestore has done is basically up on their website, so check that out if you want to see more of what they worked on.
13:33 Early Man is about cavemen and stuff and is from Aardman Haven’t watched Early Man, or even most of their animations, but Wrong Trousers is probably still the best.
29:49 Most of the ones I saw had mini telescoping ones on the side, like this one from Amazon.
36:30 Spiral Scratch is a Sixth Doctor book by Gary Russel. I wouldn’t really recommend it.
36:38 Jellied eels are a traditional London dish. Can’t believe I can’t get them anywhere in Southern California. Anyway, they look disgusting.
40:01 Wikipedia: “A kissogram, also called kissagram (short for kissing telegram), is a message delivered along with a kiss, usually arranged as a fun surprise for a person for a special occasion.” This probably isn’t a widely-used, cause that paragraph also mentions Doctor Who.
48:19 It’s not a real company.
50:15 Matt Smith said Patrick Troughton was his favorite Doctor at Doctor Who Convention 2012.

The Tenth Doctor Retrospective

Only the best parenting tips on this podcast.

This week Kiyan and Dylan take a long introspective look at themselves as parents of a little baby podcast. Have we done it right? Have wee been raising this little boy right? Or girl, whatever it chooses. We also sort of talk about like, The Tenth Doctor and Death and the Queen, written by James Goss and released in May of 2016. Death and the Queen can be purchased for $3 (or your local equivalent) on Big Finish’s website.


Show-notes:


12:29 The Tench Doctor Chronicles were released earlier this year by Big Finish, though not all of them feature Rose.
26:03
Picard and his cloud.
37:09 Before Smith, Davison was the youngest Doctor at time of casting at 29. Tennant was second youngest at 34.
41:06 The Ship of Theseus is a philosophical concept that’s basically what we describe. Check this out if you want to know more.
42:14 Here’s the trailer. Doesn’t really spoil anything or give away too much, even if you haven’t watched up to that point like me. Also, just found out that France won. I don’t follow sports at all.
44:03 Faust is a character from German legend who hangs out with demons. The Marvel character Mephisto is named after a demon from the story.
44:31 The Ferengi don’t hang out with demons, but they look kinda like demons.
54:51 The most interesting part of the Ballad of Russel and Julie was seeing how well the cast can sing.
56:28 And the best part about the cast & crew 500 miles video was probably the dancing Ood.

Episode 209: Let Her Go Russell T.

Don’t you even think about it Stephen.

So it comes to this. The end of the Tenth Doctor, goes out with quite a bang, and about 10 minutes of plot stretched out over two hours with a twenty minute epilogue! Truly, the epitome of the Russell T. Story. It’s The End of Time, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on December 25, 2009 and January 1, 2010.


Show-notes:


4:49 It’s called rack focus.
9:55 More brain stuff from a brain blog that hasn’t been updated in 6 months.
13:07 Children of the Stones. Weird that we’d bring up this series that features a time loop in this episode cause we talk about whether time (and stories) are circular later on.
13:10 Follow Ernest Malley.
1:09:07 According to the wiki he’s only done Song for Ten and the extended version of Song for Ten.
1:13:59 John Barrowman plays Dark Archer on Arrow.

Episode 208: Go Go Gadget Time Lord

Engage gadget uh regeneration… technique…

Coming right up on the end of good old Mr. Tennant’s run here. And Russell T.’s run as well, but the more important thing is Mr. Tennant. He’s had a good run but you know, three seasons is about the max here in the reboot era. It’s The Waters of Mars, written by Russell T. Davies and Phil Ford and aired on November 15, 2009.


Show-notes:

3:48 Never saw this music video before. It’s literally just him standing in a blank white area.
3:54 The rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars.
4:59 Yuri Gagarin.
13:53 None of this is actually true, at least according to Steve Burns’ Wikipedia page.
21:28 I take it back, this is actually pretty funny.

Episode 207: *Unintelligible Clicking Noises*

How about that for a title? Too bad none of us speak Tritovore.

It’s Easter! Not really actually but like, it’s close enough. It’s a couple months late. Just pretend it’s Easter, I mean Easter doesn’t have a set date so we can just put it wherever we want. It’s Planet of the Dead, written by Russell T. Davies and Gareth Roberts, and aired on April 11, 2009.


Show-notes:


1:39 Ben Stiller.
5:19 End of Time*
8:12 Daniel Kaluuya filmography.
10:31 Rub’ al Khali in Arabic. Also Ski Dubai is one of the world’s biggest ski resorts.
10:58 Buy your tickets now.
14:01 SYG, IGH, if you know what I mean.
48:00 I didn’t even read these articles but they’re probably important.
