Episode 220: You Came to Doctor Who for Consistency?

Ran into The Doctor yesterday. She told me not to expect any consistency in Chibnall’s era either.

Ding dong here come the Christmas bells. The Christmas horses. Reindeer. Ok look Christmas is hard to try shove into this description so I’m just gonna give up. Unlike Kiyan I actually like Christmas though. It’s A Christmas Carol, written by Steven Moffat and aired on December 25, 2010.


Show-notes:


5:02 Skyscraper is a documentary about William Le Baron Jenney, the father of the modern skyscraper.
11:51 Michael Gambon and Richard Harris were the two main actors to play Dumbledore.
16:08 The Calendar (New Style) Act 1750 changed new year’s day from March 25 to January 1 in Britain.
21:16 Christmas Carol came out in 1843, early in the Victorian era.
42:56 Listen to this and tell me it’s not the worst of all Christmas songs.

Episode 219: Rory Danger Pond

Only on Doctor Who would you find someone with the middle name Danger.

This week things go sideways. Like, really sideways. But also it goes upside down and in reverse and crooked. And all those non forward directions that Stephen Moffat loves so much. It’s The Pandorica Opens and The Big Bang, written by Stephen Moffat and aired on June 19 and 26, 2010.


Show-notes:


1:16 The Mill did the effects for this.
13:57 Here’s the paper about the neural network.
27:46 The Borg are a Star Trek villain. Borg is actually a misspelling of “Bored,” cause they’re the most bored race in the universe.
41:28 Aunt Lavinia was Sarah Jane’s biological aunt.
1:07:47 Triple Play is our movie trilogy podcast. We’ve been doing it since 2015 and its age is the same as the number of listeners it has.

Episode 218: James Corden’s Skeleton

Closets hold a lot of skeletons honestly. Or at least, mine do.

James Corden is actually a pretty funny guy. I think because Gordon Ramsey is a chef I confused him with James Corden, somehow, even though their names are literally nothing alike. At all. I must be really dense honestly, because that’s completely bizarre. It’s The Lodger, written by Gareth Roberts and aired on June 12, 2010.


Show-notes:


1:41 The comic version is also called The Lodger.
10:23 Good on the wiki for using a picture that somehow makes Kronos look cool.
32:58 It was The Hopes and Fears of All the Years, which we covered like 9 months ago.

Episode 217: Anything is Better than Traveling with Adric

E-space kind of sucked tho so I’ll give him a pass for trying to escape.

I looked up how to paint once. But it was really difficult and kind of expensive and so I decided it would be better to look up how to digitally paint since I already had photoshop. But then I found out that it’s easier with one of those art tablets so I gave up on that too and started a podcast. It’s Vincent and the Doctor, written by Richard Curtis and aired on June 5, 2010.


Show-notes:


9:48 Vincent and Theo is a 1990 movie. Wonder who ok-ed that poster.
15:10 Apparently it is pronounced “Nye.”
18:43 The Musée d’Orsay is indeed in Paris.
21:55 The “Van Gogh only sold 1 painting in his lifetime” thing has been called into question. Some people say he sold more. Some say he only sold the one – The Red Vineyard. There are plenty of theories out there, and we’ll probably never know how many he really sold for sure.
32:42 Fun fact we had the bipolar to manic depressive in reverse, it used to be called manic depressive and now it’s called bipolar. Basically, “manic depressive” has bigger negative connotations than “bipolar,” so the DSM officially changed the name in the 80s. Also, DSM stands for Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.
48:22 Can’t believe I actually found the blog post again.

Episode 216: The Most Productive 12 Minutes in Human History

Da da da da, da da da…. That was supposed to be the A-Team.

Hey look we’re bringing back the Silurians. You all know the Silurians right? They appeared a whole two times! Which is actually less than Sabalom Glitz. And when you really think about that, you have to ask yourself, why are we bringing them back? It’s Hungry Earth & Cold Blood, written by Chris Chibnall and aired on May 22 and 29, 2010.


Show-notes:


4:42 The Kola Superdeep Borehole is over 7 miles deep but only 9 inches across.
12:42 I would hate to be a Predator if it means seeing like this.
17:44 Apparently blue grass music is named after the Blue Grass Boys, a band from Kentucky.
34:24 Malcolm Hulke did create the Silurians.
1:05:53 Check out our new episode on An Unearthly Child.

Episode 215: Very Creative Deaths

They weren’t important anyway.

Weirdly enough, as I’m writing this, I just woke up from a dream about Blake’s 7. Which is weird because I’ve never dreamt about Doctor Who even though I’ve been watching it forever. Really disconcerting actually. Weird. It’s Amy’s Choice, written by Toby Whithouse and aired on May 15, 2010.


Show-notes:


4:02 Sophie’s Choice is a 1979 book by William Stryton.
6:03 Probably The Confessions of Nat Turner.
9:07 The Valeyard was supposedly from between the Doctor’s twelfth and final incarnation. The novelization says that he’s somewhere between the twelfth and thirteenth incarnation. I guess all of this isn’t true anymore or just not considered in the modern show.
12:29 Stetson is a hat brand with a really interesting history.
14:42 We discussed bottle episodes when we discussed Sarcophagus on Zenith, our Blake’s 7 podcast.
20:57 Gee I wonder why this flopped.

Episode 214: Broom is Doomed

And so the age of brooms is over. I for one welcome our new mop overlords.

Well, this week we sparkle. Not that you can really tell, because it’s an audio podcast and not a video podcast, but just trust me, we are. We have the blinds open and the sun is streaming in and we’re just dying while we record. It’s The Vampires of Venice, written by Toby Whithouse and aired on May 8, 2010.


Show-notes:


7:15 This could have been an interesting thread about the differences between a stag party and a bachelor party until some no-fun-allowed nerds decided to close it for being off topic.
11:38 Check out Zebra, the world’s number like 3 or 4 Blake’s 7 podcast.
12:45 According to New World Encyclopedia, the population of Venice was around 124,000 in 1581.
24:48 Arachne I guess? But it looks like she more gets transformed into a spider.
29:35 Rosanna or Roseanne? Who rosanned better?
35:29 Toby Jones was the really famous British actor who plays the villain in Amy’s Choice.

Episode 213: Dart in the Dartboard of History

Really want to know how to play darts, honestly.

The angels are back. River Song is back. Stephen Moffat is already doing the “Greatest Hits of Stephen Moffat” and it’s first season and like fourth story. Good start. It’s The Time of Angels & Flesh and Stone, written by Stephen Moffat and aired on April 24, and May 1, 2010.


Show-notes:


2:50 We bring up most of the Alien movies here. Is Alien one of those franchises that should just be let go and left to rest in peace? Maybe.
10:18 Black box? More like wack box, cause these things aren’t box-y enough at all. Also known as a flight recorder I guess.
19:43 Jesus.
35:04 Look at the Special Weapons Dalek. Just look at it. And people were mad about the New Paradigm?

The Tenth Doctor Retrospective

Only the best parenting tips on this podcast.

This week Kiyan and Dylan take a long introspective look at themselves as parents of a little baby podcast. Have we done it right? Have wee been raising this little boy right? Or girl, whatever it chooses. We also sort of talk about like, The Tenth Doctor and Death and the Queen, written by James Goss and released in May of 2016. Death and the Queen can be purchased for $3 (or your local equivalent) on Big Finish’s website.


Show-notes:


12:29 The Tench Doctor Chronicles were released earlier this year by Big Finish, though not all of them feature Rose.
26:03
Picard and his cloud.
37:09 Before Smith, Davison was the youngest Doctor at time of casting at 29. Tennant was second youngest at 34.
41:06 The Ship of Theseus is a philosophical concept that’s basically what we describe. Check this out if you want to know more.
42:14 Here’s the trailer. Doesn’t really spoil anything or give away too much, even if you haven’t watched up to that point like me. Also, just found out that France won. I don’t follow sports at all.
44:03 Faust is a character from German legend who hangs out with demons. The Marvel character Mephisto is named after a demon from the story.
44:31 The Ferengi don’t hang out with demons, but they look kinda like demons.
54:51 The most interesting part of the Ballad of Russel and Julie was seeing how well the cast can sing.
56:28 And the best part about the cast & crew 500 miles video was probably the dancing Ood.

Episode 209: Let Her Go Russell T.

Don’t you even think about it Stephen.

So it comes to this. The end of the Tenth Doctor, goes out with quite a bang, and about 10 minutes of plot stretched out over two hours with a twenty minute epilogue! Truly, the epitome of the Russell T. Story. It’s The End of Time, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on December 25, 2009 and January 1, 2010.


Show-notes:


4:49 It’s called rack focus.
9:55 More brain stuff from a brain blog that hasn’t been updated in 6 months.
13:07 Children of the Stones. Weird that we’d bring up this series that features a time loop in this episode cause we talk about whether time (and stories) are circular later on.
13:10 Follow Ernest Malley.
1:09:07 According to the wiki he’s only done Song for Ten and the extended version of Song for Ten.
1:13:59 John Barrowman plays Dark Archer on Arrow.
