Episode 87: Now That’s What I Call Doctor Who 57

They say Steven Moffat is a big contributor to Now That’s What I Call Doctor Who: Greatest Hits Revisted 3.

This week Kiyan and Dylan explain their way through The Brain of Morbius, and successfully avoid accidentally joining a cult. The Brain of Morbius was written by Robert Bland (Terrance Dicks and Robert Holmes), and was aired in January of 1976. Just January.

(Ok so The Eight Leg two parter and the Morbius two parter are different seasons of the Eighth Doctor Adventures, but let’s not forget that a good deal of the other stories are greatest hits revisited too. I.e. the return of the Wirrn, the Zygons, Susan, the Daleks, the Cybermen and the Ice Warriors.)

Episode 86: Hotel Doctor Who

So I called up the Doctor. “Please bring me my time.”

He said “I couldn’t get there since 1969.”
And still Sarah is calling from far away.
Wake you up in the middle of the fight,
Just to hear her say…

Help me fight this Android Invasion!
By Terry Nation (By Terry Nation)
The Terry Nation.
Aired in the year Nineteen – Seventy Five
In Late November (In Late November)
Early December.

In case you missed it, this week Kiyan and Dylan discussed The Android Invasion, aired in November and December of 1975 and written by Terry Nation.

Episode 85: Rainbow Tunnel of Death

The colors! They burn!

This week Kiyan and Dylan make up a new term (biobabble), sort of explore a serial from Doctor Who, and indicate that Kiyan is half asleep. It’s been quite a week. The serial sort of covered this week is Pyramids of Mars, which was written by Stephen Harris (in reality Robert Holmes)  and aired in October and November of 1975.

Episode 2: I Wanted Dinosaur Action

Dun dun, dun dun, dun dun dun, dun dun dun dun.

On this episode of Triple Play, Kiyan and Dylan explore another movie juggernaut. Last time it was Back to the Future,  this time it’s Jurassic Park. These movies, however, seem to dip in quality far quicker than Back to the Future did. Listen in and take  journey behind the scenes and explore the Jurassic Park trilogy (excluding Jurassic World, of course). Remember, we spared no expense!

A large portion of our information can be found in the DVD extra documentary The Making of Jurassic Park, which can be found on youtube if you have 48 minutes to spare in addition to this hour long podcast.

For information on the special effects and the creation of the dinosaurs, you can read this fascinating article from Empire Magazine’s August 1993 issue.

io9 put together a compilation of behind the scenes videos about the dinosaur puppets in about 2012, which you can find over here.

We briefly touched upon how the film approached the topic of scientifically accurate vs. fictionally exciting dinosaurs. A comprehensive list of scientific inaccuracies can be found at this dinosaur related website here. 

The Lost World: Jurassic Park, besides having a ridiculous name to type out every time, also had an interesting production history which we touched on a bit. A more in-depth look at the creation of the second film can be found here.

Michael Crichton’s website features tidbits of information on the second film, including comments from Michael Crichton himself before he passed in 2008.

Most  of our information on the third film can be seen in this review from Variety that appeared on their website in July of 2001.

The banner for this episode does not use the theatrical release poster for Jurassic Park, as the Back to the Future banner did. This is largely because it features a black background, which is really rather annoying when you need the poster to form a distinctive triangle. This alternate unused poster, created by famed movie poster artist John Alvin (who did the Indiana Jones and E.T. movie posters), was used instead.

Episode 84: When The Scarf Hits The Fan

There were little scarf bits everywhere. It was a disaster to clean.

This week Kiyan and Dylan put forward their life’s work in harnessing the power of podcasting. They successfully harness pure podcast ether to create this episode about Planet of Evil, which was written by Louis Marks and aired in September and October of 1975. Watch out, pure podcast ether is toxic in large doses.

Here’s a comparison between greyscale and color images of the Addam’s Family Mansion.

Episode 1.5: All Praise Zemeckis

Please lay your cameras at the feet of the all mighty Zemeckis statue.

So this is a rather interesting experiment. Like we said in the episode, we’re putting out these “.5” episodes that serve almost as an addendum to our episodes on the actual movie trilogies. So this week is a bit of a review/overview of We Don’t Need Roads, written by Caseen Gaines and originally published on June 23rd, 2015.

Check out the book (or not?) on Amazon.

Erik Larson’s book The Devil in the White city is a historical novel that investigates both the building of the Chicago World’s Fair and the serial killer H.H. Holmes. You can find it on Amazon.

Episode 83: Wiggle Wiggle Wiggle

And then like magic, it works! Guaranteed, every time.

This week Kiyan and Dylan return to their regularly scheduled host set-up with just the two of them attempting to explain a serial once again. This week the serial at hand is Terror of the Zygons, which was written by Robert Banks Stewart and aired in August and September of 1975. Harry Sullivan leaves in this episode, so there’s a retrospective at the end of the episode.

This was the base Dylan was referring to. Apparently it appeared in The Spy Who Loved Me, and not the one with the lotus (You Only Live Twice). The Bond Films all kind of blend together at some point.

Episode 82: Cyber Action Man Ft. The Krynoid Podcast

Yes, it’s another collaboration.

You’ve heard Kiyan and Dylan, you’ve heard Jim and Martin (maybe), now hear them together in all of their glory! Listen in and find out if the crossover is as exciting as that previous sentence makes it out to be. I don’t see why it wouldn’t be that exciting. Together the four discuss Revenge of the Cybermen, written by Gerry Davis and aired in April and May of 1975. After finishing the story, stick around for a few more discussions on various Doctor Who related ideas.

Here’s a link to the Shannon Sullivan page on Revenge of the Cybermen.

Episode 81: On Screen On Screen

Son Screen’s sun screen is on screen sun screen.

This week Kiyan and Dylan explore one of the juggernauts of classic Doctor Who (See what I did there? The Juggernauts is an audio drama featuring Davros, the Daleks, and the Mechonoids [from The Chase]). If the previous sentence didn’t give it away, this week the topic at hand is Genesis of the Daleks, which was written by Terry Nation and aired in March and April in 1975. It famously introduces the character of Davros, creator of the Daleks.

For the curious: Spare Parts, The First Sontarans, Lords of the Red Planet

Episode 80: Too Dead To Accept It

See, there’s a very fine line between dead… and almost dead.

In this episode, Kiyan and Dylan take about 30 minutes to cover about 50 minutes of serial content, giving them approximately a 3:5 time compression rate or something. Dylan has an honorary degree in technobabble and he approves this completely made up measurement. The serial at hand this week was The Sontaran Experiment, written by Bob Baker and David Martin and aired in February and March of 1975.
