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 65: Hard Work and Motivation are Never a Good Thing

Seriously, this show has no hard work ever, making it a good idea!

This week Kiyan and Dylan finally succeed in integrating all their discussions into the summary of the serial, rather than just shoving it to the end, as usual. Thank goodness for Malcolm Hulke, his amazing penmanship skills, and his serial, The Sea Devils, which aired between the 26th of February and the 1st of April, 1972.

Episode 64: This is Becoming a Podcast of Moral Ambiguity

Ambiguity is one of the best/worst/neutral things.

In this episode, for the first time in quite a long, long while, Kiyan and Dylan end an episode disagreeing on something. Well actually multiple things over the episode. This, of course, is a product of multiple heated debates over the course of the episode, which should be hopefully enjoyable. Is Jo the worst character in the serial? Or Peladon? That’s for the dear listener to decide. The subject of these debates was The Curse of Peladon, written by Brian Hayles, and aired in January and February of 1972.

Episode 63: Dropping Some Dope Morality

Dope: adjective, informal: very good.

This week Kiyan and Dylan explain the triumphant return and subsequent loss of the Daleks. They tried to exterminate any tangents before they got too big, but some of them were too powerful. Day of the Daleks aired in January of 1972 and was written by Louis Marks.

Episode 62: Subliminal Pun Master

It’s the Master’s second evolution: The Subliminal Pun Master.

This week Kiyan and Dylan explored demons and witchcraft. Or so they thought until 5 minutes into episode 1, where the Doctor just slapped that thought out of their mind, because magic isn’t real. The topic at hand was The Dæmons, which was written Guy Leopold and aired in May and June of 1971.

Episode 61: The Doctor Riding a Motorcycle Off a Building

This title is actually in no way related to the serial at all.

This week Kiyan and Dylan watched Colony in Space. As usual when presented with a mediocre serial, they end up taking a few tangents throughout the whole episode, seemingly with no regard for sticking to explaining the actual serial. Colony in Space was written by Malcolm Hulke and it aired in April and May of 1971.

Episode 56: Cardboard Cutout of Hartnell

Plot twist: The First Doctor returns! (Just kidding!)

This week Kiyan and Dylan investigate The Ambassadors of Death, which featured hilariously overpowered villains. Also, they take a dive into the themes of Malcolm Hulke, including xenophobia and socialism! And they discuss the Doctor’s characterizations and the start of the reboot!
