Episode 187: The History of Inn-keeping

Inn-keeping is a very old and difficult profession.

This week Trust Your Doctor gets super spooky… in February. Why not, I guess, why not just release scary things in February? Nothing says you have to release them in October. It’s The Shakespeare Code, written by Gareth Roberts, and aired on April 7, 2007.


Show-notes:


0:38 Gareth Roberts didn’t write anything for series 1. The only things by him that we’ve covered are Bang-Bang-a-Boom, The Romance of Crime, The English Way of Death, and now this.
2:51 Yeah, Lilith is a demon or something.
20:49 The last time California carried out the death penalty was in 2006.
26:27 This Animaniacs reboot is the most necessary thing in years. Totally 100% needed and I’m sure it will be amazing and won’t even come close to sucking.
27:40 Yeah, it was Arthur C. Clarke.
41:54 This one.
43:16 This trailer for the 1993 Much Ado About Nothing movie kind of feels like it was a VHS preview rather than a theatrical trailer.

Episode 186: Weird Sci-Fi Rain

Everybody knows that sci-fi rain is better than regular rain.

This week we start another season of reboot Doctor Who. We’re really motoring on through these, we’re a third of the way through 10’s run already, can you believe it? It’s Smith and Jones, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on March 31st, 2007.


Show-notes:


5:40 The Checklist Manifesto by Atul Gawande is a book about how surgeons implemented checklists into their surgery process and improved it and stuff.
11:47 Yeah, Jamie uses the John Smith name in a hospital.
27:01 The Haemovores were actually from The Curse of Fenric.

Episode 185: Who Haven’t the Time Lords Killed?

So far they should honestly be at the top of the kill count if we had them on there.

Trust Your Doctor moves through the years pretty quickly, which means it’s already Christmas again. Yes, that’s right, it’s Christmas. Merry Christmas. It’s The Runaway Bride, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on December 25, 2006.


Show-notes:


1:23 There were a lot of different versions/recordings, too many to list here, but the wiki has them all.
25:29 Arachne.
36:25 Best quality that 5 seconds of googling could find. Poor aliens.

Episode 184: Cockblocked by the Universe

Universe turns out to be kind of a jerk this week.

Well, nothing even worth watching for anymore. Rose is “dead”, the Doctor is about to become a mopey teenage boy, and Russell T. has clearly run out of ideas already. It’s Army of Ghosts and Doomsday, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on July 1st and 8th, 2006.


Show-notes:


16:07 Dress?
58:00 Our other podcasts Triple Play (movie trilogies) and Zenith (Blake’s 7).

Episode 183: At Least We Have Eurovision

America has it now too. I think.

This week we’re continuing the whole “Doctor Who sucks and we’re pretty sure we should just shut it all down right now” thing we started last week. Trust us, it’s bad. It’s Fear Her, written by Matthew Graham and aired on June 24, 2006.


Show-notes:


3:37 Stephen Fry. Never even heard of this guy.
10:16 Zenith is our new Blake’s 7 podcast. You can find the newest episode of it, Space Fall currently, here.
16:59 Get in the damn box.
30:32 Thanks J.R. Thanks.

Episode 182: Play the Benny Hill Theme Over This

Couldn’t make the episode any worse.

Things are about to get pretty rocky on the show. Trust Your Doctor and Doctor Who. Both of them. Look it’s just bad, it’s that point in the year where we have to wonder if it’s really worth continuing the show anymore. Because Doctor Who is a bit ropey right now. It’s Love and Monsters, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on June 17, 2006.


Show-notes:


6:47 For Christmas 2017 we read The Hopes and Fears of all the Years by Paul Cornell. Check out that episode here.
12:15 Shirley Henderson. I guess she’s one of those actors who uses one voice across all roles.
21:21 Yeah, ELO has been around for like 20 years total. Started in 1970 and is still going, with a long hiatus somewhere in there.
41:02 We just started a new Blake’s 7 podcast where we watch Blake’s 7 for the first time and discuss it. Check out Zenith here.

Episode 181: Satan Comes Down Your Chimney

Every Christmas I think to my self “Move over Santa, it’s Satan’s time to shine now.” It never works.

This week we’re not Kiyan and Dylan anymore, it’s edgy and dark Kiyan and Dylan. The goth versions of us if you will. We hail Satan and draw upside down crosses because we think it’s cool. It’s The Impossible Planet and The Satan Pit, written by Matt Jones and aired on June 3rd and 10th, 2006.


Show-notes:


5:24 Plo Koon.

Episode 180: Little Annoying Twerps Like Me

So I’d say we’re probably pretty annoying little twerps too.

This week we watch a story that says TV is dangerous. But if we’re watching Doctor Who on TV, does that mean that Doctor Who is telling us that watching Doctor Who is bad? This is very confusing stuff this. It’s The Idiot’s Lantern, written by Mark Gatiss and aired on May 27, 2006.


Show-notes:


2:16 June 2nd, 1953 B.C.
4:24 Good (I guess) short history of Elvis’ appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show.
4:42 Muswell Hill is a suburb of London. It looks exactly the same as how it was portrayed in the episode, probably because they just went there to record.
5:52 Kid nab.
16:47 Annette Mills.
17:00 She’s just kidding right? Anyway, what I’m more interested in is the camcorder vision in this video.
24:44 Who the hell wants to hear actors talk?

Episode 179: The Secret Life of Pete’s Wife

Guys I don’t know if this is going to sell….

This week we finally reach the new Cybermen. Because the Cybermen are what we’ve been really waiting for, all of that other nonsense? Doesn’t matter. Daleks? Nope. Autons? Nah. Cybermen. It’s Rise of the Cybermen and The Age of Steel, written by Tom MacRae and aired on the 13th and 20th of May, 2006.


Show-notes:


7:23 High tech high pizza.
8:05 “Starring actual Domino’s employees” – guess that explains why they can’t act to save their lives and why they don’t even seem to know what’s in the sauce or crust.
19:02 Sounds painful.
19:22 I guess it’s actually Don’t Stop me Now. Oh well. Queen is still overrated.
1:05:55 No need to thank me.

Episode 178: Banana Supremacy

Ninety-nine bushels of bananas on the wall…

I have a girl in my fireplace so I don’t know what’s wrong with that really. Although actually now that I think about it my fireplace is gas burning, so maybe I’ve just been hallucinating her this entire time… It’s The Girl in the Fireplace, written by Stephen Moffat and aired on May 6, 2006.


Show-notes:


7:06 I think it was Ghost in the Machine.
13:19 Wow. There you go I guess.
30:56 Not all of them, just most of them.
48:50 The Turk.
49:30 Which you can get here. This actually sounds kind of good.
