Episode 158: Malevolent Psychic Eye

As opposed to a benevolent psychic eye.

The Greatest Show in the Galaxy is not, as you might expect from our comments, Doctor Who. The Greatest Show in the Galaxy is actually Trust Your Doctor. What a twist! The Greatest Show in the Galaxy was written by Stephen Wyatt and aired in December of 1988 and January of 1989.


Show-notes:


11:25 He was a British guy who traveled to Hawaii, New Zealand, and a bunch of other places.

Episode 157: Brutally Stabbed in the Literal Back

Ow.

This week it’s the twenty-fifth anniversary of Kennedy’s Assassination! No, that’s not right. What else happened around that time? It’s Silver Nemesis, written by Kevin Clarke and aired November and December of 1988.


Show-notes:


5:18 Because of this crap. Thanks people of the past. Thanks for doing this. Calculating dates is really something your descendants wanted to do.
15:17 If you don’t already know what that is then you probably don’t want to…
21:28 The first one is the good one. The second one is the one with the octopus face guy. The third one is the one with the ship in a desert. The fourth one is the pretty bad one. The fifth one is the one that’s not out yet. Hope that clears it up.
34:52 Jesus… Well, at least the show has come a long way in some ways. Making a better looking costume on a tiny budget is one of those ways.
37:25 Don’t believe me?
37:35 Still don’t believe me?
38:51 No.
39:03 Check out our other podcast, Triple Play. We talk about movies and stuff. Mostly stuff. We did an episode about Star Wars. We also did like 20 other episodes about not Star Wars.

Episode 156: Candy Davros

In this story Davros acts as some insane Willy Wonka knockoff.

Are you happy? We’re happy. Definitely happy. No insane dictator holding a gun to our backs making sure we’re happy. Nope. Definitely happy. The Happiness Patrol, written by Graeme Curry and aired in November of 1988.


Show-notes:


1:32 The Thatcher “regime” lasted from 1979 to 1990. Apparently there’s no term limit or term of office for UK PMs, but it’s complicated.
11:31 Learn more about that here. Or don’t. I don’t care.
38:36 This mascot. I’ll never be able to look at this thing now without thinking that it’s some dangerous homicidal maniac that kills with a smile on its face.

Episode 155: Ace-Off

Just like that John Travolta movie.

This week we move into season 25. Can you believe we’ve almost finished 25 years of Doctor Who? Time wise that’s almost half of all the time it’s existed. It’s Remembrance of the Daleks, written by Ben Aaronvitch and aired in October of 1988.
