The Ninth Doctor Retrospective

So its come to this. Reading the Doctor Who Annual.

Can you believe it? We’re just three doctors from catching up to the show. Well, it’ll be three again by this time next year, thanks to Jodie Whittaker. It feels like we’re on a never-ending treadmill of trying to catch up. It’s the Ninth Doctor Retrospective this week, where we also talk about the 2006 Doctor Who Annual, which was published in September 2005.


Show-notes:


2:27 Books. What are they?
3:46 You won’t even believe the truth about this.
12:38 How Watson Learned the Trick.
17:13 The Boscombe Valley Mystery.
17:35 The Six Napoleons and Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle.
33:33 What Queen song?
1:04:22 Junie B. Jones. Kind of sad to see that this series ended a couple years ago.

Episode 168: Black Spray-painted Contraption of PVC Pipe

Every single prop is made of PVC.

It only took 5 weeks, but this week we’re cashing in on the most popular Doctor Who villain ever created. We probably could have held out longer, but we need people to listen. It’s Dalek, written by Robert Shearman and aired on April 30, 2005.


Show-notes:

6:09 Sounds like this.
6:58 Nah.
7:41 Cover. Remix. Whatever. Original. “New.” Whatever.
7:56 Johnny Cash’s Hurt. What an awful video.
23:24 It’s Clive Finch. Not Craig Owen, that’s someone else that’s still forthcoming.
32:38 Wouldn’t it be nice?

Episode 155: Ace-Off

Just like that John Travolta movie.

This week we move into season 25. Can you believe we’ve almost finished 25 years of Doctor Who? Time wise that’s almost half of all the time it’s existed. It’s Remembrance of the Daleks, written by Ben Aaronvitch and aired in October of 1988.

Episode 146: Bible of the Daleks

You know eventually they’ll make Bible of the Daleks because there’s only so many words you can use for ___ of the Daleks.

Here come the Daleks again. Is there some sort of unwritten pact that they have to appear for every doctor? Because they have so far. At least for us, I’m not counting the reboot (yet). It’s Revelation of the Daleks, written by Eric Saward and aired in March of 1985.


Show-notes:


7:56 The Star Wars Holiday Special, largely regarded as one of the best 3-course dinners of all time, was aired only once on November 17, 1978 B.C. Written, directed, produced, and baked to a golden brown by the artists formerly known as George Lucas and Jar Jar Binks, it has been made widely available in a number of different formats, such as VHS, Blu Ray, Laserdisc, pdf, and cereal box activity. You can check out the Holiday Special in all its glory here.
10:15 Greeks.
12:48 Nope.
19:13 Barrow just changed its name back to Utqiagvik.
20:20 According to this site, countries that list an indigenous American language as an official language are Bolivia, Guatemala, Paraguay, Peru, and Venezuela. It doesn’t list Greenland, but it’s one too, and there are probably more.
24:27 Yeah, looks pretty cool.
31:46 Apparently it took 5 years, but Terry Garrett completed Ocarina of Time completely blind. Here’s the full playlist of all his Zelda videos.
56:50 Uh… what.

Episode 137: Bear Attacks at the BBC

When are we getting a serious bear themed episode of Doctor Who?

Wow who would have guess that Davros would come back? And who would guess that this serial would basically display genocide? About 6 people made it out of this serial alive. Amazing. It’s Resurrection of the Daleks written by Eric Saward and aired in February of 1984.

All links are on the website.


Show-notes:


1:52 It was because of the 1984 winter Olympics in Sarajevo, Yugoslavia. Interestingly, that was one of the only Olympic games held in a communist country.
3:33 NECESSARY TECHNOLOGY.
18:55 Oh bugger.
26:41 And then he breaks into song.
32:10 You mean this one?

Episode 107: Do You Dream of Davros?

Does Davros count Daleks to fall asleep?

This week’s episode is brought to you by the color pink. And by pink, I mean PINK, because that frock that Romana wears is straight up bright pink. It contrasts nicely with the cold grey of the Dalek casings. Yes, this week it’s Destiny of the Daleks, written by Terry Nation and aired in September of 1979.

And don’t forget to check out Flight Through Entirety ahead of our crossover which goes out this coming Wednesday.

Episode 75: The Dalek Syndrome

Syndrome was a pretty good villain. Oh wait we’re talking Daleks.

This week Kiyan and Dylan begin the end of the beginning eras of Doctor Who. If that makes sense. Well basically they’re coming to the end of the Third Doctor’s era, and it’s pretty clearly running down. Terrance Dicks, Barry Letts, and Jon Pertwee have all decided by this time to leave the show at the end of the season. The serial that has apparently so blatantly signposted this end of an era is Death to the Daleks, written by Terry Nation and aired in February and March of 1974.

Episode 71: Falling Rocks Hair Gel

Goes great with the Hard Rock Cafe!

The topic of discussion this week is Planet of the Daleks. Kiyan and Dylan were… not impressed with it as a resolution to Frontier In Space. But no matter, they still had a good time explaining it. Planet of the Daleks was written by Terry Nation and it aired in April and May of 1973.

Episode 70: It’s Just A Bunch of Schizophrenics

Wait. Did you hear that? It’s telling us that the government knows.

Episode 31: Examiner Who

The insanity of this serial is somewhat interesting, supposedly.

This week Kiyan and Dylan return with the first serial of the second doctor, The Power of the Daleks, also featuring the return of the Daleks. It was written by David Whitaker and it aired in November and December of 1966.
