Episode 206: Sea of Leeches

This is the uncrossable leech sea.

This is it. We finally made it to the very first episode that Dylan watched of Doctor Who. Well before this podcast was even a glimmer in either of their eyes, there was The Next Doctor. It was written by Russell T. Davies and aired on December 25, 2008.


Show-notes:


10:09 Labyrinth is a Jim Henson movie starring David Bowie.
16:56 I guess nobody really knows how long the London area has been inhabited, but it’s definitely thousands of years.
20:12 Thomas Paine’s most famous revolutionary pamphlets are Common Sense and American Crisis.
28:15 It’s called a belt.
36:14 Simulacra and Simulation is a book by Baudrillard.
53:22 Here’s Stephen Fry’s language rant (actually part of a larger essay).

Episode 184: Cockblocked by the Universe

Universe turns out to be kind of a jerk this week.

Well, nothing even worth watching for anymore. Rose is “dead”, the Doctor is about to become a mopey teenage boy, and Russell T. has clearly run out of ideas already. It’s Army of Ghosts and Doomsday, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on July 1st and 8th, 2006.


Show-notes:


16:07 Dress?
58:00 Our other podcasts Triple Play (movie trilogies) and Zenith (Blake’s 7).

Episode 179: The Secret Life of Pete’s Wife

Guys I don’t know if this is going to sell….

This week we finally reach the new Cybermen. Because the Cybermen are what we’ve been really waiting for, all of that other nonsense? Doesn’t matter. Daleks? Nope. Autons? Nah. Cybermen. It’s Rise of the Cybermen and The Age of Steel, written by Tom MacRae and aired on the 13th and 20th of May, 2006.


Show-notes:


7:23 High tech high pizza.
8:05 “Starring actual Domino’s employees” – guess that explains why they can’t act to save their lives and why they don’t even seem to know what’s in the sauce or crust.
19:02 Sounds painful.
19:22 I guess it’s actually Don’t Stop me Now. Oh well. Queen is still overrated.
1:05:55 No need to thank me.

Episode 157: Brutally Stabbed in the Literal Back

Ow.

This week it’s the twenty-fifth anniversary of Kennedy’s Assassination! No, that’s not right. What else happened around that time? It’s Silver Nemesis, written by Kevin Clarke and aired November and December of 1988.


Show-notes:


5:18 Because of this crap. Thanks people of the past. Thanks for doing this. Calculating dates is really something your descendants wanted to do.
15:17 If you don’t already know what that is then you probably don’t want to…
21:28 The first one is the good one. The second one is the one with the octopus face guy. The third one is the one with the ship in a desert. The fourth one is the pretty bad one. The fifth one is the one that’s not out yet. Hope that clears it up.
34:52 Jesus… Well, at least the show has come a long way in some ways. Making a better looking costume on a tiny budget is one of those ways.
37:25 Don’t believe me?
37:35 Still don’t believe me?
38:51 No.
39:03 Check out our other podcast, Triple Play. We talk about movies and stuff. Mostly stuff. We did an episode about Star Wars. We also did like 20 other episodes about not Star Wars.

Episode 141: Cyberguns Down the Cyberlackeys

Cyber. Cyber. Cyber. Cyber.

Yes this week we begin season 22. Season 22 is quite the experience.  It’s very violent. And to think it all begins with some cybermen. It’s Attack of the Cybermen, written by Paula Moore and aired in January of 1985.


Show-notes:


13:34 Black Orchid was one of them. I guess. Ok, actually not, but it’s ok. Cause it’s Black Orchid.
18:55 Like that James Bond movie, The Man With the Goldeneye Goldfinger Gun who Only Lives Twice to Live and Never Die Another Day.
30:56 Sweet dreams.
42:27 All in Siberia.

Episode 82: Cyber Action Man Ft. The Krynoid Podcast

Yes, it’s another collaboration.

You’ve heard Kiyan and Dylan, you’ve heard Jim and Martin (maybe), now hear them together in all of their glory! Listen in and find out if the crossover is as exciting as that previous sentence makes it out to be. I don’t see why it wouldn’t be that exciting. Together the four discuss Revenge of the Cybermen, written by Gerry Davis and aired in April and May of 1975. After finishing the story, stick around for a few more discussions on various Doctor Who related ideas.

Here’s a link to the Shannon Sullivan page on Revenge of the Cybermen.

Episode 47: What if Internet Explorer is a Cover?

I knew it! Microsoft is behind everything!

This week Kiyan and Dylan watched only the first 4 episodes of The Invasion. They did this because that although they claim they have a TARDIS, they actually do not, and therefore have a limited amount of time during the week to watch episodes. The Invasion was written by Peter Bryant and the first 4 episodes aired in November of 1968. Like the Moonbase and The Wheel in Space, it was based on an idea by Kit Pedler.
