Episode 203: Electric K. Ant

So, Mr. Ant, what qualifies you for this position?

This is one of the best Doctor Who stories of all time according to Dylan, and a very good one according to Kiyan, and basically all of fandom really. Most people like this, so if you don’t you’re obviously wrong. Just flat out wrong, that’s the nature of the game unfortunately.


Show-notes:


3:02 Sapphires are actually a type of corundum and is slightly softer than diamond.
5:26 I completely forgot Independence Day: Resurgence existed. Pretty sure most of the world has forgotten about it too.

8:22 Turns out a klick is just a kilometer.
11:15 Goblin Market by Christina Rossetti.
15:14 Hereditary might actually be scary.

Episode 202: Books Suck

Unlike books, however, River is actually useful.

Every once in a while we deserve to take a digression, I think. A nice little trip down the yellow brick road so to speak. Of course, it just so happens that this digression is all of the episode, but you know, whatever! It’s Silence in the Library & Forest of the Dead, written by Steven Moffat and aired on May 31 and June 7, 2008.


Show-notes:


12:36 David Bowie had liver cancer.
32:51 St. Elsewhere is a medical tv series.

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 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.

32:10 You tell me.

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.


Show-notes:


19:21 Margaret Cavendish’s The Blazing World might be the first English science fiction story.

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:


0:28 Back at it again with the 3 year old memes.

Episode 196: Trust Your Moptor

Everyone needs a mop, much the same way everyone needs a thneed.

It’s the beginning of the end. Russell T. is on his way out, he practically has one foot out of the door already, it’s his final season. He’s probably already given up actually, it’s just over now. It’s Partners in Crime, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on April 5, 2008.


Show-notes:


1:37 And what they’re referring to is Don Cheadle replacing Terrence Howard.
1:49 Check out our Blake’s 7 podcast Zenith.
21:20 They’re just called window cleaning platforms.

Episode 195: Space Gold

So over here we have the latin– space gold. Almost got sued right there.

This week one of us watches Time Crash, while the other doesn’t. That has to be a first for this show. I’m almost certain it is. After that we both actually watched the episode for the week, so that’s good at least. It’s Voyage of the Damned, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on December 25, 2007.


Show-notes:


8:36 Wikipedia has a really extensive article on Kylie Minogue so her discography and entire career should be here.

Episode 194: Some Semblance of a Budget

And to think we’ve come far since the days of styrofoam avalanches … but not that far.

This is the longest episode we’ve put out in a long time. It’s over an hour and a half long, and somehow it’s actually sort of interesting for the entire episode, which is really saying something. Remember our War Games episode? Good times. It’s Utopia, The Sound of Drums, and Last of the Time Lords, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on June 16, 23 and 30th, 2007.


Show-notes:


11:58 Stop Crying Your Heart Out is really one of Oasis’ worst songs.
27:26 Yeah, Derek Jacobi has a pretty extensive career.
29:03 As does John Simm.
50:35 Rose gets a TARDIS key in Aliens of London.
1:03:13 Here’s the scene from Watchmen. And here’s the equally-bad one from Ironman.
1:06:01 Tom Ellis is Lucifer. Lucifer is Tom Ellis.
1:09:48 Rolanda Hooch is played by Zoe Wanamaker, who plays Cassandra in series 1 and 2.
1:13:26 Plo Koon. He’s Plo Koon.
1:18:26 The mirror universe from Star Trek sounds pretty “cool” I guess.

(One and Done) Episode 1: Don’t Listen to This

This is not a joke, we’re done with Doctor Who.

Let the past die, kill it if you have to. And we did. Trust Your Doctor is dead. I’m sorry if you liked the show, but it’s done now. We’re going to replace it with a podcast that has much less overhead, it takes less time to make, and edit, and is just generally easier. Sorry. This week we review Trust Your Doctor Episode 1, which released on January 24, 2014.


Show-notes:


0:20 Trust Your Doctor is dead. Long live One and Done.
1:01 Zenith is still going though.
1:32 RIP in pieces 42 to Doomsday.
1:36 Never heard of Complete Menagerie.
6:50 Here’s The Great Titanic Conspiracy on Amazon if you want to get it for some reason.
