Episode 77: The Brig is Azaxyr!

This revelation changed Monster of Peladon for me.

This week Kiyan and Dylan wrap up the Third Doctor’s era with the final serial of his era, Planet of the Spiders. This episode features the Trust Your Doctor exclusive Pertwee Retrospective, so stick around to the end to listen to Kiyan and Dylan discuss his era as a whole. Planet of the Spiders was written by Robert Sloman and aired in May and June of 1974.

Episode 76: A Genetic Coincidence Pass

It’s like a free pass, but not really because it kind of doesn’t exist.

This week Kiyan and Dylan approach the end of the Third Doctor’s era, and for some reason he decides (somewhat poorly) to revisit Peladon. It’s not a very good serial, as you will find out soon enough. On the bright side, there’s lots of Alpha Centuri  and Ice Warrior voice imitations from both Kiyan and Dylan! The name of this week’s serial is The Monster of Peladon, and it was written by Brian Hayles and it aired in March and April of 1974.

Here is the history of printing wikipedia page. Apparently inkjet and dot matrix printers both existed by 1974.

Episode 1: Skateboard Rampage

I suppose it’s a hoverboard rampage in the future, right?

For the very first actual episode of Triple Play, Kiyan and Dylan did their second one day marathon of Back to the Future! Back to the Future is one of Dylan’s favorite movies, so it’s a good thing they started with it… It also happens to have it’s 30th anniversary this year! Today, July 3rd, happens to be exactly 30 years to the day that the first film premiered.

This was our first episode in this slightly more freeform style, and as such there are some minor errors committed throughout the episode. Below are some corrections, as well as some further information for anyone who is curious enough to want to know more about the Back to the Future trilogy.

Information on the genesis of Back to the Future and the origin of the movie can be found on the Making of Back to the Future Part 1 Documentary that is part of the DVD extras for the 25th anniversary edition of the film.

Here is some information on the earlier drafts of Back to the Future. The fourth revision of the script, which features a more brooding Marty and a different opening scene (which Dylan mistakenly identifies as the refrigerator script) can be read online over here.

A list of Alan Silvestri’s scores, including notes on all of his 15 collaborations with Robert Zemeckis can be found at wikipedia. It’s also worth it to note that while Zemeckis did ask for the more bombastic score, it was Spielberg who disliked the Romancing the Stone score, and not Zemeckis.

A discussion on the casting of Eric Stoltz, and some brief footage of him as Marty can be found, once again, in the DVD extras from the 25th anniversary edition of the film. However, the New York Times has the short clip from the making of documentary hosted on their website.

Kiyan was correct, Christopher Lloyd was an actor in Star Trek III, on the recommendation of Leonard Nimoy. On the other hand, Skinhead turns out not to be the one who wears 3-d glasses.

Thomas F. Wilson did, in fact, play the 2015 version of Biff Tannen, according to IMDB.

Quite a bit of our information on the creation of the second and third films can be seen and expanded upon in Empire’s oral history of the franchise, which can be found over here.

For clarification the original theme is the one that is one of the most recognizable movie themes, not the westernized one in the third film. To hear the “westernized” version of the theme tune used in the third movie, you can click over to a youtube video over here. For comparison here is a link to the pretty recognizable regular version of the theme.

Very recently, Robert Zemeckis has stated that there will only be a reboot of Back to the Future… over his dead body. Thank goodness for that.

For anyone with a love of point and clicks, or TellTale games, or just Back to the Future in general, you can find the Back to the Future video game at TellTale’s official website here.

The Back to the Future musical was announced back in 2014, (you can read a press release here on the BBC website) and was (and probably still is) planned to premiere on London’s West End this year, for the 30th anniversary of the film.

For an extension of what we’ve discussed in this podcast, and an obviously far more in-depth look at the making of Back to the Future , be sure to check out We Don’t Need Roads: The Making of the Back to the Future Trilogy, which you can purchase on Amazon. Neither Kiyan nor Dylan have read it, but it’s definitely probably on one of their “to-read” lists.

Episode 0: Back in the Day… 2 Years Ago

It’s been a long time coming, evidently.

Here, finally, in the flesh and bone, is the very first episode of our new show, Triple Play. We’ve been hinting and mentioning this show all the way back since Trust Your Doctor hit its 5th episode, which you can find over here.

Like we mention in the episode, we’re shooting to put out an episode every 2 months. What we didn’t mention is that after about a year we’ll probably step back and evaluate if the show is successful or not to move to a monthly release schedule, and if it is, well, then we’ll do that obviously. Until then, enjoy the current flow of episodes, and please recommend the show to your friends, as we think this podcast has a far wider reach than the obviously more specific Trust Your Doctor.

The intro and outro music is the Italian Girl in Algiers Overture, which was composed by Rossini.

Episode 75: The Dalek Syndrome

Syndrome was a pretty good villain. Oh wait we’re talking Daleks.

This week Kiyan and Dylan begin the end of the beginning eras of Doctor Who. If that makes sense. Well basically they’re coming to the end of the Third Doctor’s era, and it’s pretty clearly running down. Terrance Dicks, Barry Letts, and Jon Pertwee have all decided by this time to leave the show at the end of the season. The serial that has apparently so blatantly signposted this end of an era is Death to the Daleks, written by Terry Nation and aired in February and March of 1974.

Episode 74: That’s Making Life Take the Lemons Back

And then it’s making life not exist anymore!

This week Kiyan and Dylan dive into Malcolm Hulke’s final serial, Invasion of the Dinosaurs. To their pleasant surprise, this weeks serial featured quite a fair bit of character development for the UNIT crew, with Benton, Yates, and The Brig all getting some time in the spotlight. Invasion of the Dinosaurs was aired in January and February of 1974.

By the way, the reference no one would get was to Shrek the Musical. You’re welcome.

Episode 73: The Most Low Octane Fight

Still better than a low heptane fight.

This week Kiyan and Dylan check in a new person to the Companion Hotel: Sarah Jane Smith. She’s booked a long stay, let’s see how it goes. The topic of discussion of this week was The Time Warrior, which was written by Robert Holmes and aired in December of 1973 and January of 1974.

Episode 72: Props to the Prop Designers

Don’t mind me, just gonna prop open the door so Jo can come back.

This week Kiyan and Dylan say goodbye to Jo Grant in her final serial, The Green Death. And even in her final moments Dylan and Kiyan remain divided in their opinion of her. Thanks Jo, you were definitely not a scientist. The Green Death was written by Robert Sloman and aired in May and June of 1973.

Episode 71: Falling Rocks Hair Gel

Goes great with the Hard Rock Cafe!

The topic of discussion this week is Planet of the Daleks. Kiyan and Dylan were… not impressed with it as a resolution to Frontier In Space. But no matter, they still had a good time explaining it. Planet of the Daleks was written by Terry Nation and it aired in April and May of 1973.

Episode 70: It’s Just A Bunch of Schizophrenics

Wait. Did you hear that? It’s telling us that the government knows.

This week Kiyan and Dylan stumbled their way through this weeks serial. Did Kiyan mention that he couldn’t think? Well, you know now. The serial covered this week was Frontier in Space, written by Malcolm Hulke and aired in February and March of 1973.
