Audio Ep. 7: Card Playing Alien

Daleks are probably pretty bad card-players.

This week Mark Gatiss returns to the podcast. Sort of. I mean, he’s not a guest or anything, he’s just written another story that we’re reviewing, which mean’s he’s the first writer to cross mediums for us. It’s Phantasmagoria, written by Mark Gatiss and released in October 1999. Phantasmagoria can be purchased for $3 (or your local equivalent) on Big Finish’s website.


Show-notes:


1:24 Here is more info about false memories. Careful when looking up Berenstein/stain Bears info, people have been known to go missing after they found out too much.
4:56 Rounders was invented in 1760 by a group of disgruntled parakeets who were fed up with the lack of rounders in their society. It has since become one of the most well-known vegetables of all time, and is on display at the museum of natural history in New York, New York, USA.
6:55 RINGS.
9:11 He was an orange.
24:08 Here’s the video if you’re interested, which you shouldn’t be, cause it’s terrifying. I see it every time I blink now.

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.
