Episode 214: Broom is Doomed

And so the age of brooms is over. I for one welcome our new mop overlords.

Well, this week we sparkle. Not that you can really tell, because it’s an audio podcast and not a video podcast, but just trust me, we are. We have the blinds open and the sun is streaming in and we’re just dying while we record. It’s The Vampires of Venice, written by Toby Whithouse and aired on May 8, 2010.


Show-notes:


7:15 This could have been an interesting thread about the differences between a stag party and a bachelor party until some no-fun-allowed nerds decided to close it for being off topic.
11:38 Check out Zebra, the world’s number like 3 or 4 Blake’s 7 podcast.
12:45 According to New World Encyclopedia, the population of Venice was around 124,000 in 1581.
24:48 Arachne I guess? But it looks like she more gets transformed into a spider.
29:35 Rosanna or Roseanne? Who rosanned better?
35:29 Toby Jones was the really famous British actor who plays the villain in Amy’s Choice.

Episode 3: Disintegrated by Technobabble

Now we see the true danger of technobabble.

We’re continuing along our journey, although perhaps The Doctor has buggered with the show a bit, both our show and Blake’s 7 itself. It appears we have a bit of a timeline discontinuity that somebody didn’t notice in the production room. It’s Cygnus Alpha, written by Terry Nation and aired on January 16, 1978.


Show-notes:


4:10 Strangely I couldn’t find anything, but here’s this forum thread where some people tried to create a full timeline of Blake’s 7 episodes and audios/other expanded material.
5:53 The more you know. There are actually debates about this, so don’t take this as the only explanation out there.
21:18 Wow, I always thought this was based on Hunchback of Notre Dame. Guess it’s not.

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.
