289: Star Wars in my Doctor Who? (The Battle of Ranskoor Av Kolos)

We all saw this coming to be honest.

I’m pretty sure the next season of Clone Wars comes out after this episode of Trust Your Doctor. Or at least the first episode. Maybe we should make a Clone Wars podcast just so that one day we can have the inevitable (ha) title of “Doctor Who in my Star Wars?” For the poetry, of course. It’s The Battle of Ranskoor Av’Kolos written by Chris Chibnall and aired on December 8, 2018.


Show-notes:


6:34: Good
6:51: Can’t find the video ūüôĀ
18:37: The Ux have only appeared in this episode. Also At Childhood’s End just came out like a little over a week ago.
36:23: The villain in Rosa was named Krasko.
37:48: This is the image we were referring to here.
39:39: Even after reading this Know Your Meme entry on “Ugandan Knuckles” I still don’t understand the meme.
40:50: “menschen” is just “people” I’m pretty sure.

288: 6 Years Later and Still Nobody Cares (It Takes You Away)

This is the most depressing thing I’ve ever heard.

I’ve always wanted to go to Norway. Never really had the opportunity to do so though. Which is a bummer because it always looked nice. I wonder why this episode is set in Norway and not Sweden. A good question for another time. It’s It Takes You Away, written by Ed Hime and aired on December 1, 2018.


Show-notes:


2:12: This is the first time we’ve seen Norway on the tv show, but it’s been in comics and audios before. Bad Wolf Bay was in Norway, but it was in the alternate world.
9:35: Here’s the trailer for The Silence. Cash-in on “A Quiet Place” or not, this was actually based on a book that came out in 2015.
21:43: Video of Gordon Ramsay and James May eating fermented shark
24:47: Unfortunately I couldn’t find any behind-the-scenes info on the antizone. I did find this somewhat-interesting video that kind of goes behind the scenes on this episode. It’s not too great, but yeah.
27:57: It was Spinoza, and the concept was called natura naturans.

287: Frogtor Who (The Witchfinders)

Ribbit ribbit ribbit ribbit ribbit ribbit.

Something something the Crucible is actually about the Red Scare. Well not actually. It was really about the witch hunts, but it’s supposed to be heavily about the Red Scare. Drawing parallels between the two really. But as Kiyan says “intentionality doesn’t matter” so in many ways you could see it as whatever you want. Maybe to you it’s just a play about the witch hunts. It’s The Witchfinders, written by Joy Wilkinson and aired on November 25, 2018.


Show-notes:


6:26: Bring out yer dead
13:25: Abraham Lincoln actually was the 16th president. Trump is the 45th.
18:12: If you want to hear us discuss the Troll “trilogy,” check out Triple Play: A Movie Trilogy Podcast
53:21: The bible on tattoos

286: Too Good to Exist (Kerblam)

The greatest “thing” that’s ever been in Doctor Who.

I sit here editing this episode on my Amazon laptop, with my Amazon Ergonomic Chair listening on my Amazon Buds. My Amazon branded air freshener releases a new scent to improve my workflow. I take a sip of Amazon approved water, delivered in an Amazon plastic bottle. I smile, for Amazon will look after me. It’s Kerblam, written by Pete McTighe and aired on November 18, 2018.


Show-notes:


13:31: Retrofuturism as described by Wikipedia
21:03: Sadly I can’t find this story anymore. According to this discussion, it might have been “A Short History of World War LXXVIII” by Roy L. Prosterman, but then ISFDB (and the comment thread on stackexchange) say that this story was never anthologized, and I’m pretty sure I read it in a sci-fi anthology. The worst part? I have no way of checking since I got rid of the anthology I think I read it in years ago, and “A Short History of World War LXXVIII” is nowhere to be found online as far as I can tell. Google gave me nothing at least.
23:43: The best gif of Tom Baker

285: Yes, But Actually No (Demons of the Punjab)

 

I feel really bad about not knowing anything about partition, but watching this episode for the second time has actually prompted me to look into it more. It seems to have served the Doctor Who purpose of introducing an audience to an entirely new topic that they had no idea about. Does that make it the most successful Doctor Who episode of all time? Stay tuned to find out. It’s Demons of the Punjab, written by Vinay Patel and aired on November 11, 2018.


Show-notes:


2:12: The Hugo awards are chosen by the World Science Fiction Society. The Nebulas on the other hand are chosen by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America. Wikipedia’s joint winners of the Hugo and Nebula awards. Also the book I was talking about was The Dream-Quest of Vellitt Boe, which won the World Fantasy Award for long fiction and was nominated by the Hugos, Nebulas, and Locus awards.
14:49: Behold the majesty of ThrustSSC.
24:44: It was probably the Battle of Singapore, part of World War 2.
28:52: Seeds of Death had Jamie and Zoe in it.
34:17: Check out Triple Play: A Movie Trilogy Podcast and Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast

284: Surfing the Skies of New York (The Tsuranga Conundrum)

We call it sky surfing here.

When I heard the name of this episode I kind of imagined it as an almost Kobayashi Maru situation. You know in Star Trek, it’s the no win situation that Kirk cheats at to win, and that cheating is the reason he gets given the captain’s chair because they really like his initiative in… cheating… I guess? But then it turned out to not be that at all. It’s The Tsuranga Conundrum, written by Chris Chibnall and aired on November 4, 2018.


Show-notes:


4:15: Check out Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast and Triple Play: A Movie Trilogy Podcast.
13:28: I did a little googling and I’m pretty sure this is wrong. I think you’d only die by eating and/or licking poison dart frogs, not just touching them. None of the sources I found mentioned that just touching them would kill you.
15:11: Side-by-side comparison of the unreleased cut of Lilo & Stitch featuring more realistic aircraft and cityscapes and the theatrical version.

283: The Twitspace (Arachnids in the UK)

All of America is the twitspace.

I just realized how weird it is that the villain in a UK story is an American. There’s probably more to that now that I think about it, something about how America gained its independence and now the UK hates them or something. It’s Arachnids in the UK, written by Chris Chibnall and aired on October 28, 2018.


Show-notes:


2:12: Article about George Lucas’ original ideas for the sequel trilogy.
3:56: Triple Play: A Movie Trilogy Podcast
10:50: Obviously I was just joking here, but a quick skim of the Tardis wiki reminded me that the Master’s plan in Time-Flight was something along the lines of using the Tardis’ energy to break out of some alternate dimension. Also here’s (one version of) that meme with Gru from Despicable Me.
13:46: Yeah I still have no idea what this was supposed to be or what it is. According to the Doctor Who wiki, he said pakora, but that’s not what it sounded like at all.
24:05: Before the Law by Kafka
25:54: Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast
27:26: Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast
40:02: Pretty sure it was grime.

282: It’s Just Ozzies ft. Argy (Rosa)

Ozzie Osborne that is.

This week we’re joined by Argy yet again to travel back in time to Montgomery. To be fair absolutely none of us have been to Montgomery before, so it’s a bit of a new experience for all of us. I’ll be honest I think I can say with some mild certainty that most of our audience hasn’t been to Montgomery either. So it’s new for you too. It’s Rosa, written by Malorie Blackman and Chris Chibnall and aired on October 21, 2018.

281: End Doctor Who Once and for All (The Ghost Monument)

Doctor Who must not go on.

When I saw the title for this episode the first time I was convinced it was some sort of monument to Casper the friendly ghost. Like it was going to be something super cool about this cartoon character. In hindsight I’m starting to think that would be the weirdest crossover in existence, but I kind of want to see if they could make it work. It’s The Ghost Monument, written by Chris Chibnall and aired on October 14, 2018.


Show-notes:


10:11: From Wikipedia: Continuity editing is the process, in film and video creation, of combining more-or-less related shots, or different components cut from a single shot, into a sequence to direct the viewer’s attention to a pre-existing consistency of story across both time and physical location.
23:53: Wikipedia (the source of all my knowledge) doesn’t seem to say anything about being able to overcome dyspraxic setbacks mentally.

280: I’ve Made my Final Judgement (The Woman Who Fell to Earth)

We all regenerate into women this week.

Just kidding, Trust Your Doctor is still a sausage fest. Sort of. It’s kind of sobering to realize just how many male Doctor Who podcasts there are, and then compare that to the number that have, say, at least one female host. It’s The Woman Who Fell to Earth, written by Chris Chibnall and aired on October 7, 2018.


Show-notes:


8:13: It’s Segun Akinola.
9:35: Population: 582,506 (according to wiki)
10:35: Brian Regan on spelling things
10:55: Pea tear griffin
24:35: Check out Krynoid Podcast
36:28: Check out our classic sci-fi podcast Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast.
