Episode 168: Black Spray-painted Contraption of PVC Pipe

Every single prop is made of PVC.

It only took 5 weeks, but this week we’re cashing in on the most popular Doctor Who villain ever created. We probably could have held out longer, but we need people to listen. It’s Dalek, written by Robert Shearman and aired on April 30, 2005.


Show-notes:

6:09 Sounds like this.
6:58 Nah.
7:41 Cover. Remix. Whatever. Original. “New.” Whatever.
7:56 Johnny Cash’s Hurt. What an awful video.
23:24 It’s Clive Finch. Not Craig Owen, that’s someone else that’s still forthcoming.
32:38 Wouldn’t it be nice?

Episode 167: The Famous London Marsh

Really looking forward to when they bring that back.

This week we return to contemporary London. Well, we did return to contemporary London which is now past London. I think. I don’t remember Big Ben getting taken out by an alien spaceship, but to be fair maybe American didn’t report on that. It’s Aliens of London and World War Three, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on the 16th and 23rd of April, 2005.


Show-notes:


20:10 Probably cleaner and more safe than most of the meat produced in the US.
32:06 It’s probably not true, but according to this clickbait-style article, the doors to the cabinet room are soundproof and the front door is actually reinforced steel and not wood.
39:03 Yeah, it’s 18. Trust me. I just checked.
39:47 The Ferengi from Star Trek. No “funny” comment cause I don’t know anything about Star Trek.
41:12 Yeah, that was the motivation of the aliens in Battle Los Angeles, but it looks like that movie wasn’t that recent.
43:47 Based on this, people who aren’t there probably don’t get to vote.
51:51 Yeah, shepherd’s pie is actually minced shepherd meat cooked into a pie. Apparently it’s become a rare delicacy now that the number of shepherd’s has dramatically decreased.

Episode 166: Strangulation by Dead Grandmother

You shouldn’t be surprised, just because she’s dead doesn’t mean she can’t kill you.

This week it turns out the world actually wasn’t blown up last week. So we had to drag ourselves to the off…garage to record a new episode of Trust Your Doctor. This week it’s The Unquiet Dead, written by Mark Gatiss and aired on April 9, 2005.


Show-notes:


10:26 Christmas Carol can be read here.
18:54 Or if you like longer Dickens stories you can read Martin Chuzzlewit.
26:45 I strongly suggest you don’t read The Fantastic Imagination by George MacDonald.
35:22 Or if you like unfinished Dickens stories, you can read The Mystery of Edwin Drood.

Episode 165: There’s a Sun!?!

Last week (ish) there was a solar eclipse, at which point there briefly wasn’t a sun.

We’re sorry to report that Trust Your Doctor is ending. Turns out the Earth has been destroyed, and we were on it. Bit unfortunate that was, maybe next time we’ll try be as far away as possible when the Earth goes through a catastrophe. It’s The End of the World (as we know it) by Russell T. Davies and aired on April 2, 2005.


Show-notes:


1:07 AND I FEEL FINE
8:01 Is Moxx the Max Rebo of Doctor Who?
11:00 The original 1964 version is by Gloria Jones. Had no idea the song was that old, but the one most people know is the 1981 version by Soft Cell.
11:15 It was a White Shade of Pale featured in Revelation of the Daleks. Also this.
39:16 So simple even a 2 year old could figure it out. Why did they change this again?
43:47 Episode 0. Listen to it if you have no idea what this podcast is.

Episode 164: Evolve or Die

Let me know if there’s a secret third option. That’d be good.

We’re on the downhill slope now. I mean, granted, this is an extremely long downhill slope that’s probably longer than the uphill section. Look, I don’t really know what the heck to call this. It’s a sideways trip. We’re moving leftwards. This week we watched Rose, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on March 26, 2005.


Show-notes:


3:04 Queer as Folk. According to Wikipedia the other shows Davies was famous for are Bob & Rose, The Second Coming, and a couple more, but I haven’t heard of any of them.
4:41 And it was this.
34:02 Spare Parts. Good audio(?) We also have an episode on it.
53:07 Check out our newly recorded episode 0 here.
