The Sixth Doctor Retrospective

It feels like we just started this era yesterday.

The end of an era, truly. The Sixth Doctor was here for nearly 10 seasons. Wait, you’re telling me that in this universe he only had two seasons? How did you guys cope? So you didn’t get The March of the Valeyard?  Devastation of the Daleks?  The Damnation? I can’t believe it, this really is the darkest timeline. Well, here’s the Sixth Doctor retrospective anyway, featuring an additional discussion of Spiral Scratch. Spiral Scratch was written by Gary Russell and released on the 4th of August, 2005.


Show-notes:


17:20 “Other voice actors: Colin Baker”
21:08 Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency is a book by Douglas Adams. It’s kind of inspired by the Doctor Who serials he wrote, but I thought it was boring and also terrible.
31:08 It’s The Langoliers, which is from a larger collection by Stephen King.
48:24 Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo.

Episode 7.5: LLGlglllgLgLGlGLl

And that’s when everyone realized we’re sponsored by LG.

This month Kiyan and Dylan make a snap decision between precisely 2 expanded universe options for the Bourne trilogy: A book, or the TV movie. Naturally they chose the TV movie because it was less time consuming. The Bourne Identity TV movie was written by Carol Sobieski and aired in 1988.


Show-notes:


1:38 Keyser Söze. They named him that just because the ö looks like a surprised face. Trust me.
4:22 The extended cut of the movie, available only on laserdisc, features Washburn more heavily and goes into detail about his brother Freezerburn.
5:33 Wombosi.
24:22 Apparently a syndrome only includes symptoms that might be related to a disease while a disease is an actual medical condition. Also apparently nobody cares and just uses disease and symptom interchangeably. Good enough for me.
27:25 Check out my new hit single, “What Does The Murloc Say?”
28:44 It was Evolution.
30:50 Nope, it came out on DVD and even blu ray.
32:16 According to the supposedly-official robert-ludlum.com, he’s named Jason Bourne because he’s “born” again after losing his memory. Other sources say he’s named after real-world amnesiac Ansel Bourne.
