Episode 221: Welcome to America

America, heck yea! Censored for unsafe eyes.

This week we finally officially properly start Series 6. Last week kind of counted because it was produced as part of the same thing, but this week is like, the actual thing you know? And! We get to go to America, that’s pretty cool right? It’s The Impossible Astronaut and Day of the Moon, written by Steven Moffat and aired on April 23 and 30, 2011.


Show-notes:


6:10 The 1981 version with really awkward music video.
11:05 Maybe we’ll cover Space 1999 once we finish our Blake’s 7 podcast, Zenith. Maybe.
17:52 Tuesday is a 1991 children’s picture book about werid crap happening on Tuesday.
26:55 Star Trek The Original Series ran from 8 September 1966 to 3 June 1969. Apollo 11 launched on 16 July, so Star Trek was already off the air.
29:51 The Haemovariform from Tooth & Claw was on Earth for a couple hundred years. That’s really the only one I can think of just skimming through the list of stories.
31:56 Here’s the Will Brooks River/Doctor timeline chart again. Gives me a headache just looking at it.
42:12 Here’s Tom Baker playing Rasputin in 1971.
52:14 David Frost’s interviews of Nixon are on Youtube.

Episode 53: It’s the Time Lords, Messing With Our Brains!

If I could recognizably type out the rhythm to a sad song, I would.

Episode 49: Don’t Massacre Races, Kids

The best plans are foolproof from all angles – Kiyan, 2014

This week Kiyan and Dylan watched The Krotons, not to be confused with the salad topping, croutons. They believe this to pretty middle of the road quality wise. Could this be a sign of things to come? The Krotons was written by Robert Holmes and was aired in December of 1968 and January of 1969. Also this is our final episode of 2014! See you all in the new year!

Since we had a few good ones, here’s a list of alternate titles for this episode:
Zoe, Destroyer of Worlds
