Episode 2: Poking the Right Wires

Every wire has a story.

This week we’re here to prove that this podcast wasn’t a joke or anything, we’re actually going to watch Blake’s 7. Surprise, if you didn’t actually believe us. I don’t blame you, it was totally out of left field. It’s Space Fall, written by Terry Nation, and aired on January 9, 1978.


Show-notes:


4:30 Here’s the scene if you want to watch it. I guess this was a deleted scene, but I think they might have edited back into the movie when they made those dvd re-releases or whatever, cause I remember it being in the movie.
21:44 That transformation animation.
33:27 Be Kind Rewind. Kind of dumb how it gets all sad at the end with all the characters mourning the death of VHS.
42:03 Death count coming “soon.”
43:48 Looks pretty interesting actually. No wonder it got canceled.
49:26 40th anniversary Big Finish audio out now (and it’s actually The Way Ahead, my bad).

Episode 97: Little House on the Priory

A priory is a monastery, so a house ON the priory is… interesting.

This week Kiyan and Dylan explore Chris Boucher’s final serial for Doctor Who, Image of the Fendahl. It’s almost amazing, but the dialogue falls apart. Pity. It aired in October and November of 1977.

Episode 93: Don’t Justify, Just Accept

Sometimes even accepting isn’t enough.

This week Kiyan and Dylan continue their Chris Boucher phase and explore his second serial in a row. That makes him just the second writer to write two consecutive serials, after Ian Stuart Black. The serial this week is The Robots of Death, aired in January and February of 1977.

Episode 92: What Does God Need With a Spaceship?

Star Trek V: The Final Frontier was not the best Star Trek film.

This week Kiyan and Dylan boldly go where many people have gone before to discover the Doctor’s new companion, Leela! Not to be confused with other characters named Leela that are famous in other franchises. How confusing. The serial of introduction is The Face of Evil, written by Chris Boucher and aired in January of 1977.

Sidenote, Chris Boucher was script editor and not show runner. Minor error, large difference. On the upshot, here’s the character who crossed over between Doctor Who and Blake’s 7, possibly establishing them in the same universe. Decorative Vegetable Blake’s 7 podcast confirmed?
