Episode 237: Walmart Wilf

On the prowl for dangerous criminals it’s Leadworth’s latest superhero…. Walmart Wilf!

I typically don’t shop at Walmart. I’m honestly just too lazy to drive that far, like it’s definitely not the closest department store to me. I haven’t done the math, but I’m pretty sure the extra cost of gas spent in driving to Walmart would outpace the money I’d save spending it there instead of anywhere closer. Now I’m wondering, are there any Walmarts in New York? Let alone Manhattan? It’s The Angels Take Manhattan, written by Stephen Moffat and aired on September 29, 2012.


Show-notes:


2:34 Frederick Law Olmstead was some guy who designed Central Park. I’m sure he wasn’t that important.
10:38 The Angel’s Kiss was a prequel to Melody Malone: Private Detective in Old New York Town that was actually published as a book and audio book. The Hardy Boys is a series of detective stories for kids.
11:59 Project Gutenberg is a great site for getting public domain stories. Standard Ebooks is the site that standardizes them “for the true book lover.”
13:12 The Golden Compass a.k.a. Northern Lights is another book for kids. I watched the movie version of this when it came out like 10+ years ago and all I remember was that there was a pretty badass polar bear.
14:27 Philip Marlowe is yet another fictional detective. Philip Marlowe vs. The Hardy Boys when?
17:06 The storyboarded version of Brian learning about the events of this episode is online here.
17:15 Tom Baker finally published Doctor Who Meets Scratchman as a novel. There’s a even a video of Baker himself lovingly providing a sneak preview of the book (which is already out but yeah).
32:12 Triple Play is a podcast where we discuss movie trilogies and stuff.
39:15 We even discussed the amazing Troll trilogy (Troll, Troll 2, and Contamination .7)
40:03 Here’s all the Sting/Police songs we mention (also Oingo Boingo is a thing): Every Breath You Take, Don’t Stand So Close to Me
43:31 The wiki doesn’t list anyone else as playing Rory, so it was probably Arthur Darvill.
1:13:59 This is the millionth time I’ve linked to this River Song timeline and I have become exceedingly efficient at it.

Episode 236: What Are You Going to Do, Zeus?

Can anyone find Cronus? Zeus needs to be put in a time out.

You know, Doctor Who really likes to tell us how many people is the right number, and it turns out it’s three. Which means that our podcast is one man short, and that further means that only our crossovers are “correct” in Doctor Who’s eyes. But you know, I don’t think either of us really care. It’s The Power of Three, written by Chris Chibnall and aired on September 22, 2012.


Show-notes:


19:28 SIDRAT made its first appearance in The War Games.
23:26 If you don’t know, they served McDonald’s at the White House recently thanks to the government shutdown.
23:53 Wikipedia actually has a a couple good lists of American shows that were British first and British shows that were American first.
28:50 Painting a Room by Katia Kapovich.
43:41 The Christian end of the world is Rapture.
45:12 The name of the MOBA is Smite.

Episode 235: Daemons versus Silents

The showdown of the century!

This town aint big enough for more than one podcast. And we all know which podcast that is. That’s right. It’s Triple Play. Not enough space around here for Triple Play as well as Trust Your Doctor, and since Triple Play is obviously the better podcast we’re shutting this one down. Just kidding. I think. It’s A Town Called Mercy, written by Toby Whithouse and aired on September 15, 2012.

Episode 234: Birds Before Birds Were Cool

Oh boy I can already see the debate coming.

Welcome… To Jurassic Spaceship! We’ve spared no expense. This spaceship is made of solid stone, through and through. Couldn’t really afford steel you know, so we went along with this pumice we found lying near that definitely inactive volcano. A few workers walked off the job, never to be seen again, which is kind of weird because we paid them really well, you know? It’s Dinosaurs on a Spaceship, written by Chris Chibnall and aired on September 8, 2012.


Show-notes:


2:02 I’m pretty sure this is the exact documentary I watched 10 years ago. Looks like they made a sequel to it a few years ago.
3:44 The robots in this were in Mission: 2110.
16:44 4D Rubik’s Cube.
25:09 According to the Doctor Who Wiki the robot voices and operators weren’t the same people.
27:26 Naked and Afraid is survival reality show or whatever. I haven’t watched it but it looks pretty bad.
46:24 Godzilla King of Monsters will be out this year, reserve your tickets now.
50:35 Mei long was the name of the dinosaur that they found fossilized in its sleeping position.

Episode 233: I’m Literally Davros

Damn, guess I’m Davros now.

Alright brace yourselves. Trying to wrap your head around the continuity behind the Daleks in this episode might just drive you mad. Why are there new paradigm Daleks mixed with old ones? Where did they even come from I thought they all died off before Victory? And why do the Daleks have a freaking asylum? It’s Asylum of the Daleks, written by Stephen Moffat and aired on September 1, 2012.


Show-notes:


5:12 This Doctor Who scarf site should help if you want to waste your time make your own.
12:16 The Pond Life prequel is on Youtube.

Episode 232: The Science of Lemonade

Everyone knows how to make lemonade right?

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Well, sort of. This episode awkwardly gets plopped between the two but, close enough. And we’re even talking about a Christmas episode, can you believe that? Pretty sure this will never happen again until 2020 at least if they air one we can watch live. Otherwise, savor the moment. It’s The Doctor, The Widow and the Wardrobe, written by Stephen Moffat and aired on December 25, 2011.


Show-notes:


1:46 Last Christmas is actually by Wham. Now we know who to thank for performing the worst Christmas song of all time.
2:17 Fairytale of New York isn’t from a musical, but according to Wikipedia it’s the most played Christmas song of the 21st century in the UK and also considered by many to be the best Christmas song of all time. Good thing we found out a while ago that opinions can be wrong.
6:32 Aslan is Turkish for lion according to Wikipedia.
13:33 If you’ve ever wanted to hear us talk about Aladdin, you’re in luck.
13:59 Entertainment Weekly’s first look image of Aladdin 2019 (mirrored for some reason)
19:57 If you’ve ever wanted to hear us talk about Blake’s 7, you’re in luck.
28:15 I forgot the part where Dr. Seuss’ wife committed suicide. After the affair.
34:20 Chocolate Rain
35:06 Big Chungus is a fairly new meme.
42:26 Here’s the video about The Last Jedi.

Episode 231: The Roast of Steven Moffat

Look out Steven, we’re coming for you.

You’ll never believe what happened to us while we were recording this episode. Dylan received a phone call from someone desperately trying to stop us recording. Turns out, our podcast recording last week was a fixed point in time, and the attempt to stop us recording caused the entirety of the space time continuum to fall apart. We put it back together, so you wouldn’t have noticed anything except now it seems the sky is a weird shade of blue. We’re sorry about that, it seems we weren’t quite able to get it back to it’s original yellow. It’s The Wedding of River Song, written by Steven Moffat and aired on October 1, 2011.


Show-notes:


5:40 Parts of the Millennium Bridge is made out of aluminum
6:40 It was this thing.
8:57 The Rats in the Walls is a story by H.P. Lovecraft. Also I did bad job describing it here, so just read it.
35:15 Tobias Vaughn

Episode 230: Yippie and Company

Bring back yippie honestly. Best Character 2k11.

The biggest disappointment in this episode is that the song “Closing Time” is nowhere to be seen anywhere in this story. It’d be perfect, you know? It’d be that exact thing that Kiyan hates, kind of like that time they used “Iron Man” in the movie, Iron Man. It’s Closing Time, written by Gareth Roberts and aired on September 24, 2011.


Show-notes:


8:56 Three Men and A Baby is a 1987 movie directed by Leonard Nimoy of all people. I couldn’t find any info on whether Two and Half Men was named after or influenced by this movie.
9:32 We listened to the Spare Parts audio last year with Krynoid Podcast. It’s supposed to be the Cyberman origin story.
13:50 Both IMDB and Colin Baker’s official site(?) say that he was in Shakespeare plays.
17:50 Check out our coverage of the first 3 Rocky movies.
19:04 Alf is an anteater puppet who pretends to be an alien puppet on a televised puppet show called Alf.
31:15 Yes, lingerie refers only to women’s undergarments.
36:01 Lytton appeared in Resurrection of the Daleks and Attack of the Cybermen.

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.
