250: The Earth is Flat (Into the Dalek)

It is.

We need to look inside ourself this week. Like deep inside, to the parts ourselves that we never show to the light. Where the cobwebs are. Where my little spider friend Steve lives, killing any flies that make their way in. Hey Steve, hope you’ve been having a good time in there. Nice cobwebs! It’s Into the Dalek, written by Steven Moffat and Phil Ford and aired on August 30, 2014.


Show-notes:


3:54 According to the Doctor Who Podcast alliance, our total runtime is 16 days, 12 hours, 50 minutes, 42 seconds.
6:41 I meant Evil of the Daleks . The Doctor actually names the Daleks Alpha, Beta, and Omega in this one.
17:25 Check out Zenith, our Blake’s 7 podcast.
21:35 Apparently World of Goo is a video game from like 10 years ago.
31:59 It’s actually only like 10 years old.
41:09 Check out Triple Play, our movie trilogy podcast.

2.1: Your Opinion is Valid Even if it’s Wrong (The Daleks)

Better watch out, the opinion police are coming!

Continuing and then abruptly ending our reboot of season 1 of Doctor Who, is the second story of the seasons. We only ever intended to do these two, since we figured, who the bloody hell wants to listen to an episode about Edge of Destruction anyway? If anything, you’ll listen to An Unearthly Child (because it’s the start) and The Daleks (because… it’s the daleks?) and then give up. So here it is, The Daleks, written by Terry Nation and aired in December 1963 through Freburary 1964.


Show-notes:


3:08 According to the Blake’s 7 wiki, Terry Nation did write Aftermath.
7:09 Check out our Blake’s 7 podcast Zenith.
16:22 Rex Tucker directed The Gunfighters.
1:13:37 The Lost City of Z is a book.

233: I’m Literally Davros (Asylum of the Daleks)

Damn, guess I’m Davros now.

Alright brace yourselves. Trying to wrap your head around the continuity behind the Daleks in this episode might just drive you mad. Why are there new paradigm Daleks mixed with old ones? Where did they even come from I thought they all died off before Victory? And why do the Daleks have a freaking asylum? It’s Asylum of the Daleks, written by Stephen Moffat and aired on September 1, 2012.


Show-notes:


5:12 This Doctor Who scarf site should help if you want to waste your time make your own.
12:16 The Pond Life prequel is on Youtube.
23:59 The Stranger not The Stranger.
55:13 Come Up and See Me Sometime by Mae West
1:27:20 Here’s the post from Reddit.

212: War is for Kids (Victory of the Daleks)

Only on Doctor Who can kids participate in that age old game known as war.

This week Dylan and Kiyan visit Winston Churchill. Turns out he’s as much of a hot head dick as everybody actually portrays him to be. Nobody here is actually surprised. Well maybe one person is surprised. I wasn’t surprised. It’s Victory of the Daleks, written by Mark Gatiss and aired on April 17, 2010.


Show-notes:


10:16 Here’s Ian McNiece’s filmography. I don’t think I’ve seen him in anything else.
18:58 FROBISHER
21:53 Just email us if you want Electric Ant and I’ll send you the full pdf of it.
23:02 On Exactitude in Science by Jorge Luis Borges.
41:31 Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima. February 23, 1945.
46:40 The Special Weapons Dalek was a dalek with a massive gun from Remembrance of the Daleks. Forgot about this freaking crazy design. This is honestly more offensive than the paradigmers from this story, but I guess nobody cared enough about Doctor Who in the 80s to cause a big fuss.

205: Break Glass to Win (The Stolen Earth & Journey’s End)

That’s all there is to it. Break glass and win.

This is the end of the Russell T. era. Sort of. Almost. Kind of. Just kidding. There’s still like 4 more weeks for us to go, but it’s basically over. Russell T. has basically thrown in the towel, given us the best season finale of the reboot (so far) and now is going to coast and rest on his laurels until he can basically throw the reigns off onto Stephen Moffat. It’s The Stolen Earth and Journey’s end, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on June 28 and July 5, 2008.


Show-notes:


1:30 Sorry for linking to Know Your Meme.
1:57 Ocean’s 8 is the sequel to Magnificent 7.
5:56 Richard Dawkins is an evolutionary biologist and writer, but I’m pretty sure he’s mostly famous for being a douchebag to anyone who believes in religion.
10:10 Sarah Jane also encountered the Daleks in Death to the Daleks.
19:14 Here’s the Blake’s 7 forum I was talking about.
28:06 Here’s the image with all the companions leading up to Rose. All of the females ones at least (and K9).

189: Hovering Over Hooverville (Daleks in Manhattan & Evolution of the Daleks)

So many hoovers, so little time.

And now, Martha Jones in her first two parter. Featuring the Daleks, because bloody hell do the Daleks ever not appear? Can you imagine if they named an episode “Mystery of the Daleks” and then didn’t have the Daleks appear at all? The mystery is, where are they? It’s Daleks in Manhattan and Evolution of the Daleks, written by Helen Raynor and aired on April 21 and 28, 2007.


Show-notes:


14:47 More about the building of the Empire State Building here.
18:36 They should start using man o’ wars in actual wars.
19:18 They should bring these back to actual warfare too.
25:09 This was all I could find about the “Daleks have to appear every season” rumor.
39:51 Our movie trilogy podcast Triple Play has conditioned me to think of Star Wars whenever anyone says “Do it”

184: Cockblocked by the Universe (Army of Ghosts & Doomsday)

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).

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.

168: Black Spray-painted Contraption of PVC Pipe (Dalek)

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?

155: Ace-Off (Remembrance of the Daleks)

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.
