Episode 52: Let Tarrant Into Your Heart Ft. Jim

He just wants to be loved. I think.

Merry Christmas, we hope you’ll enjoy this rendition of “jingle bells, decomposing Blake smells, Avon took a bullet.” They’re all dead is what I’m saying, and frankly we had no idea when we started this podcast that Blake would fall on Christmas, which is really a rather fun coincidence. Fun might not have been the word I’m looking for actually, in retrospect. It’s Blake, written by Chris Boucher and aired on December 21, 1981.


Show-notes:


2:10 Where are you Down and Safe? Why have you not put out an episode in 40 years.
3:34 If you don’t already know, Distant Star was a proposed version of the B7 to be used in Series D with lyrics written by Vere Lorrimer. Thankfully it never came to fruition.
9:40 Check out our latest Trust Your Doctor episode, where we discuss the Wedding of River Song.
1:07:59 The IT Crowd is just some show. Nothing special to see here, just move on.
1:23:02 Check out Krynoid Podcast if you haven’t already. They’re great.

Episode 51: Most Over-Exaggerated Glass

As you can tell I forgot to find a good title this week.

The end is nigh. And by nigh I mean, it’s nearly here. Next week, Blake, then two more episodes, then…? It’s over. On the bright side we’ve been forming a coalition of people to take over the job for us. That way you can still get Blake’s 7 content but without us, so we can actually sleep for a while, without having to panic because it’s Monday and I haven’t edited the Zenith episode. That last part is true, by the way. It’s Warlord, written by Simon Masters and aired on December 14, 1981.


Show-notes:


1:30 This is probably the first time I haven’t instinctively pronounced Z-Cars as “zee cars.”
1:42 Emmerdale is a long-running tv show. The Cluedo tv series is actually a game show. There seems to be a Cluedo drama out there too, but the dates on the IMDB credit for Simon Masters correspond to the game show. Rough Justice and Dallas are other tv shows I’ve never heard of.
5:29 Footage of the location used in this episode 30-ish years later.
14:15 This is what The Experimental Imagination is about kind of. Also James Thomson’s Winter is one of the best poems.
18:16 Foundation is a book series by Isaac Asimov.
21:50 Yeah, these wigs are kind of like Zeeona’s.
1:07:25 Next time Jim from the Krynoid Podcast will be joining us.

Episode 75: The Dalek Syndrome

Syndrome was a pretty good villain. Oh wait we’re talking Daleks.

This week Kiyan and Dylan begin the end of the beginning eras of Doctor Who. If that makes sense. Well basically they’re coming to the end of the Third Doctor’s era, and it’s pretty clearly running down. Terrance Dicks, Barry Letts, and Jon Pertwee have all decided by this time to leave the show at the end of the season. The serial that has apparently so blatantly signposted this end of an era is Death to the Daleks, written by Terry Nation and aired in February and March of 1974.

Episode 74: That’s Making Life Take the Lemons Back

And then it’s making life not exist anymore!

This week Kiyan and Dylan dive into Malcolm Hulke’s final serial, Invasion of the Dinosaurs. To their pleasant surprise, this weeks serial featured quite a fair bit of character development for the UNIT crew, with Benton, Yates, and The Brig all getting some time in the spotlight. Invasion of the Dinosaurs was aired in January and February of 1974.

By the way, the reference no one would get was to Shrek the Musical. You’re welcome.

Here’s a link to the first volume of that ebook by Hugh Pearson: The Lost Lords of Time: Recons Volume One
