Episode 167: The Famous London Marsh

Really looking forward to when they bring that back.

This week we return to contemporary London. Well, we did return to contemporary London which is now past London. I think. I don’t remember Big Ben getting taken out by an alien spaceship, but to be fair maybe American didn’t report on that. It’s Aliens of London and World War Three, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on the 16th and 23rd of April, 2005.


Show-notes:


20:10 Probably cleaner and more safe than most of the meat produced in the US.
32:06 It’s probably not true, but according to this clickbait-style article, the doors to the cabinet room are soundproof and the front door is actually reinforced steel and not wood.
39:03 Yeah, it’s 18. Trust me. I just checked.
39:47 The Ferengi from Star Trek. No “funny” comment cause I don’t know anything about Star Trek.
41:12 Yeah, that was the motivation of the aliens in Battle Los Angeles, but it looks like that movie wasn’t that recent.
43:47 Based on this, people who aren’t there probably don’t get to vote.
51:51 Yeah, shepherd’s pie is actually minced shepherd meat cooked into a pie. Apparently it’s become a rare delicacy now that the number of shepherd’s has dramatically decreased.

Episode 166: Strangulation by Dead Grandmother

You shouldn’t be surprised, just because she’s dead doesn’t mean she can’t kill you.

This week it turns out the world actually wasn’t blown up last week. So we had to drag ourselves to the off…garage to record a new episode of Trust Your Doctor. This week it’s The Unquiet Dead, written by Mark Gatiss and aired on April 9, 2005.


Show-notes:


10:26 Christmas Carol can be read here.
18:54 Or if you like longer Dickens stories you can read Martin Chuzzlewit.
26:45 I strongly suggest you don’t read The Fantastic Imagination by George MacDonald.
35:22 Or if you like unfinished Dickens stories, you can read The Mystery of Edwin Drood.

Episode 14: I Didn’t Notice the Movies

Don’t know how I did that, considering we set aside like 9 hours to watch these.

This month we delve into a science fiction classic. No not Star Wars. No not Back to the Future. No not… ok you get the point. It’s Alien, Ridley Scott’s seminal sci-fi horror classic. We also watched Aliens and Alien 3, because this is a trilogy podcast and we needed three movies. Yes we know there’s a fourth one, get over it.


Show-notes:


2:22 Here’s that concept art for Neil Blomkamp’s Alien 5.
0:48 Yeah. This rogue Geiger counter did all the work designing the Alien for them.
5:55 Oh boy, just what everybody wanted.
9:43 The Statement of Randolph Carter
12:28 The Alien and Sedition Acts were passed in 1798, so Dylan got two digits correct. Close enough.
13:08 Check out the Nostromo’s blueprints and some other “neat” stuff here.
14:24 These were the guys who made the chain mail for Lord of the Rings.
15:10 Don’t worry Yaphet, I believe you.
21:25 The chestbuster scene is pretty iconic.
24:08 A brief overview of the making and release of Aliens.
35:25 Neuromancer
39:06 Unfortunately the communist vs capitalism theme also fell apart when the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991.
44:40 The world’s most popular man, David Fincher.

Episode 165: There’s a Sun!?!

Last week (ish) there was a solar eclipse, at which point there briefly wasn’t a sun.

We’re sorry to report that Trust Your Doctor is ending. Turns out the Earth has been destroyed, and we were on it. Bit unfortunate that was, maybe next time we’ll try be as far away as possible when the Earth goes through a catastrophe. It’s The End of the World (as we know it) by Russell T. Davies and aired on April 2, 2005.


Show-notes:


1:07 AND I FEEL FINE
8:01 Is Moxx the Max Rebo of Doctor Who?
11:00 The original 1964 version is by Gloria Jones. Had no idea the song was that old, but the one most people know is the 1981 version by Soft Cell.
11:15 It was a White Shade of Pale featured in Revelation of the Daleks. Also this.
39:16 So simple even a 2 year old could figure it out. Why did they change this again?
43:47 Episode 0. Listen to it if you have no idea what this podcast is.

Episode 164: Evolve or Die

Let me know if there’s a secret third option. That’d be good.

We’re on the downhill slope now. I mean, granted, this is an extremely long downhill slope that’s probably longer than the uphill section. Look, I don’t really know what the heck to call this. It’s a sideways trip. We’re moving leftwards. This week we watched Rose, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on March 26, 2005.


Show-notes:


3:04 Queer as Folk. According to Wikipedia the other shows Davies was famous for are Bob & Rose, The Second Coming, and a couple more, but I haven’t heard of any of them.
4:41 And it was this.
34:02 Spare Parts. Good audio(?) We also have an episode on it.
53:07 Check out our newly recorded episode 0 here.

Special Ep. 7: The Real and Better Thirteenth Doctor

All I want you to know is that this is #mythirteenthdoctor.

This week Kiyan and Dylan watch the final little expanded universe thing they’re watching before they get to the reboot. In sticking with completely invented and made up traditions they watched Stephen Moffat’s first contribution to the show. It’s the Curse of Fatal Death, aired on the 12th of March, 1999.


Show-notes:


1:45 It is a telethon and it was founded by Richard Curtis.
24:14 Convenient article called Red Nose Day: What exactly is it? Unfortunately I can’t be bothered to read it, so I still don’t know.

Special Ep. 6: Doctor Who was a Mistake

Unfortunately you all know it’s true.

This week we’ve made the biggest mistake we’ve ever made. But even our biggest mistake (watching this special) can’t compare to how big of a mistake it was for the show to make Dimensions in Time. It was written by John Nathan-Turner and David Roden, and it was aired on the 26th and 27th of November, 1993.


Show-notes:


6:08 Pulfrich Effect.
10:32 Apparently the Pet Shop Boys are a musical duo. They’ve been around since 1981, so that must mean their music is bad enough for people to like it.
11:30 It’s kind of a Big Deal.
26:00 Check out our other podcast, Triple Dip.

Book Ep. 4: Embrace Lung Cancer

That’s how we all end I guess.

Here we reach the end of our run through the Doctors from 8 down to 1 and back up again. Two weeks of random other TV things, then we finally reach Rose. Finally. Thank god. It’s Mad Dogs and Englishmen, written by Paul Magrs and released on January 7, 2002.


Show-notes:


3:45 The 99th BBC Doctor Who novel is apparently The Adventuress of Henrietta Street, if this site is to be believed.
19:54 Here’s a picture of arctic char for your enjoyment.
5:59 Check out our other podcast, Triple Flip. We recently covered the Aladding “trilogy.”
51:50 List of movie that took a long time to make.
51:54 Looks bad.
53:48 System Shock? No, just Bioshock.

Episode 13.5: Some Guy on an Internet Forum

You know, just those damn trolls living under internet bridges.

Amazingly there’s barely anything expanded universe for Aladdin. In fact we had to go and dive into completely other properties just to find something to squeak out a 20 ish minute episode. It’s Hercules and the Arabian Night, written by Bill Motz and Bob Roth and aired February 10, 1999.


Show-notes:


0:48 See for yourself.
2:04 Firefely is a tv show created by Joss Whedon.
12:29 Here’s more about the non-Disney Icarus.
13:54 Limitless is a 2011 movie and 2015 tv show about a dude who unlocks his brain’s full capacity with a pill or some shit.
22:01 Basically no possible way that Thor: Ragnarok will be good.

Audio Ep. 17: Brutally Boring

Can you feel the change in the podcast? We’re going back to TV.

This week Kiyan and Dylan are approaching the end of the Dark Years diversion. They’ve listened to their final audio for now, they’ve read their final book (you’ll have to wait until next week) and so it draws almost neatly to a close. Almost. But not quite. Master was written Joseph Lidster and released in October of 2003. Master can be purchased for $3 (or your local equivalent) on Big Finish’s website. It’s also on Spotify.


Show-notes:


5:59 It was McKinley.
12:29 “Son of a bitch.”
17:53 It was Mrs. Norris. Thank god Harry Potter is over. It’s over, right? Right?
21:51 I didn’t look too hard obviously, but there really wasn’t anything definitive about green being considered the color of death significantly at a certain place/time. So yeah.
22:02 Monster House is a movie.
52:11 I won’t let my dreams be dreams I guess.
Also discussed in this episode: Goodnight Saigon by Billy Joel.
