Episode 111: Papier-Mâché Shia LaBeouf Head

Running through the night… It’s the Nimon! Actual cannibal Nimon!

Watch out, it’s the Space Minotaur! He’s chasing us down! Well, may as well take a quick break here and listen to Trust Your Doctor, I’m sure the minotaur will wait. I mean, Kiyan and Dylan are discussing The Horns of Nimon, written by Anthony Read, and aired in December of 1979 and January of 1980. Unfortunately for us, this serial was released 2 years before Rambo. Pity.

Episode 110: The Real Radiation Experience

Please fasten your seat belts and put on your radiation helmets.

This week, the question at large is, does the serial make a political point? Well actually the question is, as usual, can Kiyan and Dylan summarize a serial without totally failing? Listen in and find out if Nightmare of Eden can answer both of these questions. It was written by Bob Baker and aired in November and December of 1979.

Episode 109: Long Chain of Life Threatening

I did a play once that ended in a long chain of people holding guns to peoples heads.

This week Kiyan and Dylan secretly record in yet another undisclosed location. Luckily when they ventured out, the Lady of the realm didn’t chuck them into a pit filled with some generic creature of destruction. So instead they sat down and discussed The Creature from the Pit, written by David Fisher and aired in October and November of 1979.

Episode 108: He Wipes his Ancestors on his Pants

Just gonna wipe this off. Don’t need this primordial soup.

A, la cité de l’amour. Er… I mean, la cité de la mort. Only fitting that this episode features a lovely birdsong in the background, truly solidifying the love in the air. And what better way to write a serial set in the city of love than to have three writers (David Fisher, Douglas Adams, and Graham Williams) collaborate in writing a serial. Yes, it’s the City of Death, aired in September and October 1979.

Episode 107: Do You Dream of Davros?

Does Davros count Daleks to fall asleep?

This week’s episode is brought to you by the color pink. And by pink, I mean PINK, because that frock that Romana wears is straight up bright pink. It contrasts nicely with the cold grey of the Dalek casings. Yes, this week it’s Destiny of the Daleks, written by Terry Nation and aired in September of 1979.

And don’t forget to check out Flight Through Entirety ahead of our crossover which goes out this coming Wednesday.

Episode 106: You Wish Your Name Was Lalla

Apparently Lalla is derived from a Persian word that means “tulip”.

This is it, ladies and gentleman, the end of the search for the Key to Time. And what better way to end it than with the most divisive serial since The Mutants? Is it good? Is it bad? Well. That’s for you to decide. It’s The Armageddon Factor, written by Bob Baker and David Martin and aired in January and February of 1979.

Episode 105: Funny for All the Wrong Reasons

Is anything ever funny for the right reasons?

This week Kiyan and Dylan face the roughly 4×21 minute ritual of Kroll. It’s really rather simple, you sit through the 4 episode The Power of Kroll serial, take a few notes, and then record a podcast about it. The serial was written by Robert Holmes and aired in December of 1978 and January of 1979.

This is the kind of alarm clock/timer that Kiyan and Dylan were referring to, in case you were wondering.
