The Fifth Doctor Retrospective

In hindsight maybe not doing this with Krynoid was why this episode was all over the place.

Remember how the Fourth Doctor Retrospective was fun? This is… sort of fun? We take a look back at good old Peter Davison, and try to discuss his brief but fun era of Doctor Who.


Show-notes:


1:09 Which you can do here. Just saying. Not gonna force you to listen to it or anything. Mainly because I can’t. But you should listen to it.
9:25 Well maybe it needed to die.
28:54 Make it happen BBC.
32:53 Y’know. The cliffhanger-y one. The one where he’s gonna crash the ship. Hold on, I’m trying to find it. Hmm… where is it… Oh, here it is. Sorry about that. Yeah, I really liked this one. Even though it’s a quote unquote cool one.
37:31 The Life of Pie argument goes states that it’s more fun to eat pie than to do anything else in the world, so it urges people to stop what they’re doing at any time (and every time) to eat pie.
39:00 Yeah, it’s like a couple hundred thousand if you trust science as well. But I wouldn’t trust science if I were you cause last time I did I woke up in Anchorage wearing only socks and a sombrero.

Episode 126: Throw a Spleen into a Circuit Board

What the hell is a spleen anyway?

One season closer to the end of classic who. Only 7 more to go! Can you believe that we finished 19 seasons? It actually feels pretty weird. Maybe we can take a time trip back to season 1 and start again… It’s Time-Flight, written by Peter Grimwade and aired in March of 1982.

We’d like to actually, honestly, dedicate this episode to Anton Yelchin.


Show-notes:


5:31 This thing. Everywhere in all of space and time open to you and you want to go here.
8:12 Unless he’s an air traffic controller. Or a TV remote controller. Or a remote controlled car.
10:26 Yeah. There was Scorby from Seeds of Doom. He was kind of a jerk. Go jump in a lake Scorby. Oh wait…
10:52 Well I wouldn’t go that far.
12:58 Roger roger.
18:15 Bioelectronics is a real thing now, but it wasn’t when this episode came out.
18:53 Vestigial organs. The term “vestigial” comes from a corruption of the word “vegetable,” because if you replaced one of these organs with an eggplant or a cabbage you’d never know the difference.
46:17 We said they wouldn’t get a new companion and then 1 second later we were like “yeah, I don’t know.”
47:53 The Wright Flyer was a plane invented by the Wright Brothers after numerous failures with their previous plane, the Wrong Flyer. You don’t want to know about that one.
48:18 Watch and be amazed.
52:52 *cough* …*COUGH COUGH*… *HACK HHHAACCCKGAHAH KAHJSHGJDJDJDJ*… Sorry, just something in my throat.

Episode 125: Every Meme Has an Origin

Maybe one day Trust Your Doctor will be a meme.

He finally kicked the bucket. He took a dive. Got offed. Put on ice. You feel me? Yes it’s Earthshock, written by Eric Saward and aired in March of 1982.


Show-notes:


6:30 Apparently “Morphsuits” is a brand, which I guess makes it a generic trademark?
8:49 They also continue the trend of their costumes getting more and more cool. Seriously, I forgot how terrible they looked in Tenth Planet.
9:40 Don’t mind this blatant lie.
10:57 Yup.
20:20 Yeah, it does seem really bad.
22:55 What?
40:29 You heard it here first. Doctor Who stories have no plot.

Episode 124: A Blueberry With Wings

Apparently butterfly = blueberry with wings. This is some high level math.

I think our episode where we talk about almost nothing is pretty representative of this week’s serial, where the characters to practically nothing. If you guessed Edge of Destruction, you’re completely wrong, it’s Black Orchid. Written by the ever illustrious Terence Dudley and aired in March of 1982.


Show-notes:


6:18 Chess boxing is what you think it is. I think. Not to be confused with checkers mma or snakes and ladders smackdown.
22:21 The first Bourne movie has one of the assassins sent to kill Bourne jump out a window hilariously when he fails his mission. Hmm… Maybe we’ll watch the Bourne trilogy for Triple Play one of these days… Nah, probably not.

Episode 123: A Cross Between a Silurian and Shrek

It’s all ogre the news. Terileptals take London.

This week Kiyan and Dylan visit London. Or have they already done that? Or will they still do that? Is “The Visitation” past tense? Well. Anyway, it’s the Visitation, written by Eric Saward and aired in February of 1982.


Show-notes:


5:50 Here’s this handy chart that explains the difference between asteroids, comets, meteors, meteoroids, and meteorites. Again. For like the third time now.
7:08 You probably already know the scene, but why not watch it again? Do it, or I’ll bite your legs off.
9:23She still did go out and kill some people though, like those poor Morphos.
11:41 Undertale is a video game.
22:13 Oh god, there’s sand everywhere.
37:11 Apparently there’s a Doctor Who locations guide, so uh… feel free to take a look at the locations and studios they used for this serial I guess. They have complete listings for the classic show and the new show. How… exciting.

Episode 122: Clocks Everywhere

But there’s still never enough time.

This week we kinda liked the serial. Just kinda though, not a lot or anything. Kinda was kinda written by Christopher Bailey and aired in February of 1982.


Show-notes:


0:48 These things here. They’re chocolate eggs with toys inside. Apparently they’ve been banned in the U.S. for a while, but I remember eating them (or something like them) all the time as a kid. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
1:29 This was the image I saw, but just googling it brought up much larger trees. Some of the characters might be from the new Lion Guard cartoon, which is a midquel to the wildly-popular Lion King II: Simba’s Pride. (Some hardcore Lion King fans out there might even remember that movie’s less-known predecessor, simply titled The Lion King.)
9:12 We never ended up getting there, so here’s a side-by-side comparison of the original snake and the new cgi snake they created for the DVD release. You may have to pause to get a good glimpse of it.
10:00 Bok.
10:07 It was Bok.
10:09 He did. It was Bok.
31:48 It’s from Buddhism.

Episode 121: Bringing Down the Apocalypse

It’s like bringing down the house… but… not?

This week we swiftly move into the most bizarre misinterpretation of a character on the show so far. And that’s in a show that gave us Edge of Destruction, so you know this has to be ridiculous. It’s Four to Doomsday, written by Terence Dudley and aired in January of 1982.


Show-notes:


0:33 He’s from Keeper of Traken. And K9 and Company. Yeah, this is the guy who directed A Girl’s Best Friend.
8:12 Yeah. Uh. Yup. Just gonna leave that there. And this.
9:00 Scientists recently detected the gravitational waves that Einstein predicted a century ago. Here’s what Nasa had to say about it. Great job guys. Only took like 100 years.
39:16 Turn down your speakers/headphones.

Episode 120: Wheelchairs are Insanity!

I hope that when the wheelchairs take over they don’t find this.

This week Kiyan and Dylan bravely soldier forth without their leading man Tom Baker. There’s this weird scruffy blonde dude now, can’t quite remember his name. Pete probably. It’s Castrovalva, written by Christopher H. Bidmead and aired in January of 1982.


Show-notes:


0:50 You can take a road traveled by a lot of people by reading “The Road Not Taken” by Robert Frost. I dunno how many people “a lot” is. Probably like 6.
1:52 Find that here.
4:30 But in case YOU didn’t know, here’s this super-clickable, totally-not-a-trap link.
6:02 Doctorin’ the Tardis…?
13:57 Just like this podcast!
16:10 Just like this podcast!
17:12 It was Bob Baker who co-wrote The Wrong Trousers.
19:57 Jim Jones was a cult leader best known for convincing hundreds of people to drink poisoned Kool-Aid. Except it wasn’t actually Kool-Aid. It was Flavor Aid.
22:39 Contrary to popular belief, the Large Hadron Collider is actually a real-world particle accelerator and NOT a fictional machine on Doctor Who. The LHC is well known for assisting scientists with producing some of the most interesting scientific materials of our time, such as quark-gluon plasma, a possible Higgs boson particle, and the turkey sandwich I ate for lunch yesterday.
24:49 M.C. Escher was a guy with a staircase fetish. He was born in the Netherlands in 1898 and died rotting away in a Castrovalvan jail after being imprisoned for making the city impossible to navigate.

The Fourth Doctor Retrospective Ft. The Krynoid Podcast

Jim’s been calling it Trust Your Baker. Unbeknownst to him, that’s our next podcast. We’ll be talking about baking.

Yep we’re finally here. It’s been 6 or so weeks (probably, we lost track quite a while ago) since we first announced this, and it’s here. We’ve had a few stumbles along the way, but it’s really rather fun. So join us (Kiyan, Dylan, Jim and Martin) in looking back at Tom’s run as the Doctor.


Show-notes:


1:09 You can find that episode here. Just saying.
5:55 For anyone who doesn’t know much about Mary Whitehouse (like us), here’s her Wiki article.
6:58 Target was a 1977 cop drama that was apparently criticized for its over the top violence. In addition to Hinchcliffe, a bunch of other people who worked on Doctor Who were involved. Pretty cool intro though, am I right?
1:33:11 Find Kyrnoid Podcast at all their various outlets with this convenient links page.

Episode 119: It’s More of a Mauve

Mauve is defined as a pale purple. Which means purple is still correct.

This week we come to the end of an era. Yes truly, Tom Baker has finally regenerated and Peter Davison has taken on the mantle of the Doctor. It’s Christopher Hamilton Bidmead’s Logopolis, aired in February and March of 1981.


Show-notes:


1:15 They did bring back the “Doctor Who” credit in the reboot. And then, this time at David Tennant’s request, they changed it back to “The Doctor” again.
4:51 Apparently Tegan comes from the Welsh word for “fair.” Can’t say I’ve ever heard it. And this Tegan was like the third result on Google when I googled it, so how common could it be?
18:38 It’s actually “Logopolitans.” Just to set the record straight.
24:57 Palpatine. Something tells me he wants Anakin to do “it.” But what could “it” possibly be? Surely not killing Christopher Lee…
28:48 My guess is that they’re going to brush it off with a single passing line next story!
33:18 It’s actually from Meglos.
