Episode 229: If We Stop the Podcast, We Die

At least we only have to do this for the rest of our lives.

Look. I run this podcast. I edit it. I maintain the website. Basically what I’m saying is that it’s my podcast. No one else’s. Am I doing this God Complex thing right? I actually don’t think I am now that I think about it. Close enough. I’ll have to look at Steven Moffat for more examples I guess. It’s The God Complex, written by Toby Whithouse and aired on September 17, 2011.


Show-notes:


1:27 Tension and release is a pretty big tenet of comedy in general and has a history of theory behind it. This article puts at least some if it in perspective.

2:15 Can’t believe there are already 13th Doctor books.

25:42 Check out our Blake’s 7 podcast Zenith.

Episode 228: Everything Could Be an Elaborate Lie

Good lord, I don’t think I’ve ever thought of that until now.

This week we locked ourselves in a plain white room to record. It actually kind of sucked, because I usually zone out looking at my keyboard when we record these things. Kind of like entering a podcasting metastate, but that’s ok. We figured it out. Might switch to this plain white room approach for every episode moving forward. It’s The Girl Who Waited, written by Tom McRae, and aired on September 10, 2011.


Show-notes:


18:33 Imelda Staunton played Dolores Umbridge in two Harry Potter movies: The Order of the Phoenix and The Deathly Hallows Part 1. Imdb lists her other credits.
18:54 This article lists 11 Oscar-nominated who have appeared on Doctor Who. Unfortunately, it follows the trend of splitting the article up over multiple pages.
20:38 I still don’t know what it is, but I doubt it’s the Iron Giant.
23:26 It’s Hansen V. Predator.
38:09 The original 300 came out in American theaters in 2007. The sequel, 300: Rise of an Empire, was 2014 but wasn’t directed by Zack Snyder. Watchmen was directed by Zack Snyder though, and it came out in 2009.

Episode 227: Escape Being Ginger

Everyone wants to be brunette now.

This week Kiyan and Dylan confront their deepest darkest fears. And in order to do so they make a podcast! Gasp! This is such a huge twist of events, who could have ever predicted that this is what they would do? Certainly not us! It’s Night Terrors, written by Mark Gatiss and aired on September 3, 2011.


Show-notes:


3:38 The Monkey by Stephen King (if you can stand the way this site presents it that is).
4:21 Under the Dome is the sequel to the Simpsons Movie.
5:41 The word “berserk” means “bear shirt” and refers to Norse warriors (“berserkers”) who would wear bear skins when going into battle.
13:17 I’m Not Racist by Joyner Lucas.
19:00 Yes.

Episode 226: Fast and Furious: Leadworth Drift

Very fast and furious when you really think about it.

This week we try to stop one of the biggest tyrants in history and then promptly decide to dick around and not even do that. I mean, if you have the chance to change the entire course of human history, why would you? It’s Let’s Kill Hitler, written by Steven Moffat and aired on August 27, 2011.


Show-notes:


17:07 The Nuremberg trials started in 1945.
17:38 Meet Dave is movie about a bunch of people inside Eddie Murphy. I’ve never watched it, but I’m sure it’s even better than it sounds.
19:30They don’t look that similar to the Mister Handy line of robots from Fallout.
29:06 Check out Zenith, our Blake’s 7 podcast.

Episode 225: Stephen Moffat Hospital for Abduction

Everybody should know how to get to the hospital for abduction.

This week Kiyan and Dylan make it to the mid season finale, finally! The next half of the season is going to run much slower than this half,  mainly because it’s all one parters, so it’ll take us until Christmas to get through it. But hey, until then we get to enjoy this story, A Good Man Goes to War, written by Stephen Moffat and aired on June 4, 2011.


Show-notes:


1:45 Check out Zenith, our podcast where we watch and discuss Blake’s 7.
2:06 The Roast of Pip and Jane Baker
3:38 Battlestar Galactica and Life on Mars are two shows we don’t have podcasts about.
23:44 People probably fell in to the Thames during the 1814 frost fair. Here’s a better look at a print depicting some fools falling through cracks in the ice.
24:43 This is like the third time I have linked to this River Song timeline thing by Will Brooks and I have become exceedingly efficient at it.
26:00 Born of Man and Woman by Richard Matheson. Ignore the “commentary” on the site and just read the story.

Episode 224: None of that Merriam-Webster Garbage

Verbose – Adj. Using or expressed in more words than are needed.

Kiyan and Dylan are now recording using remote bodies! This is the technology of the future, and we have it right now! Not gonna lie, this is a bit weird. I can’t feel my fingers anymore. Or my legs. Or my head. Its The Rebel Flesh and The Almost People, written by Matthew Graham and aired on May 21 and 28, 2011.


Show-notes:


1:29 Matthew Graham created Life on Mars and sequel Ashes to Ashes. Only the first show has John Simm, but both shows involve a police officer who goes back in time.
10:38 It was probably Ace Lightning.
47:31 Here’s the image of Alice, done by John Tenniel.

Episode 223: The Many Personalities of John Nathan-Turner Ft. Argy

I have more questions than answers right now.

This week we’re joined for our first crossover of the reboot. I think. I’m pretty sure. I’d check but I’m sure enough that  I’m not going to. Just trust me on this one, I’m really certain of it. It’s The Doctor’s Wife, written by Neil Gaiman and aired on May 14, 2011.

Episode 222: We’re Jersey Shore Pirates, Dude

That’s pretty smartly brah.

Arrrrrr mateys. This week we’re here for a special pirate themed episode of Trust Your Doctor, where we do absolutely none of the following: Neglect to bathe for a month, talk like a pirate in broken english, use strange pirate slang that fell out of use years ago, neglect to shave for years on end. It’s The Curse of the Black Spot, written by Steve Thompson and aired on May 7, 2011.


Show-notes:


1:52 Henry Avery stole from a Mughal fleet in 1695.
5:53 Klaus Badelt
7:50 It might’ve been quicker to look him up in the phone book, but it wouldn’t have been as cool.

Episode 221: Welcome to America

America, heck yea! Censored for unsafe eyes.

This week we finally officially properly start Series 6. Last week kind of counted because it was produced as part of the same thing, but this week is like, the actual thing you know? And! We get to go to America, that’s pretty cool right? It’s The Impossible Astronaut and Day of the Moon, written by Steven Moffat and aired on April 23 and 30, 2011.


Show-notes:


6:10 The 1981 version with really awkward music video.
11:05 Maybe we’ll cover Space 1999 once we finish our Blake’s 7 podcast, Zenith. Maybe.
17:52 Tuesday is a 1991 children’s picture book about werid crap happening on Tuesday.
26:55 Star Trek The Original Series ran from 8 September 1966 to 3 June 1969. Apollo 11 launched on 16 July, so Star Trek was already off the air.
29:51 The Haemovariform from Tooth & Claw was on Earth for a couple hundred years. That’s really the only one I can think of just skimming through the list of stories.

Episode 211: Sonic Fidget Spinner

That’s 2018 for you.

We’re already deep in the Stephen Moffat era and frankly we’re done with this nonsense. Bring on Chibnall honestly, space whales, seriously? I’m done. It’s The Beast Below, written by Stephen Moffat and aired on April 10, 2010.
