Book Ep. 3: Hate Fiction

Ogrons have a lot of hate stored in them.

This week we drop off the audio train for a little while to do a little mental stimulation. This week we actually had to do work for this podcast and read a book, which is honestly too much brainpower for me. It’s The Romance of Crime, written by Gareth Roberts and and published on January 19, 1995


Show-notes:


9:05 Most people don’t know this but Alcatraz is actually derived from Al Katraz, the famous Arabic poet known for mastering the haiku. One of his most famous poems: Raped by the inmates, and then beaten by the guards, then raped by the guards.
21:30 I never knew The Mask was based on a comic. Then again I never knew real life was based on a comic, so yeah.
21:45 No, he is. Nah I’m just messing with you, he’s not.

Audio Ep. 7: Card Playing Alien

Daleks are probably pretty bad card-players.

This week Mark Gatiss returns to the podcast. Sort of. I mean, he’s not a guest or anything, he’s just written another story that we’re reviewing, which mean’s he’s the first writer to cross mediums for us. It’s Phantasmagoria, written by Mark Gatiss and released in October 1999. Phantasmagoria can be purchased for $3 (or your local equivalent) on Big Finish’s website.


Show-notes:


1:24 Here is more info about false memories. Careful when looking up Berenstein/stain Bears info, people have been known to go missing after they found out too much.
4:56 Rounders was invented in 1760 by a group of disgruntled parakeets who were fed up with the lack of rounders in their society. It has since become one of the most well-known vegetables of all time, and is on display at the museum of natural history in New York, New York, USA.
6:55 RINGS.
9:11 He was an orange.
24:08 Here’s the video if you’re interested, which you shouldn’t be, cause it’s terrifying. I see it every time I blink now.

Audio Ep. 6: A Lesser Disneyland Experience

Maybe we shouldn’t ride Pirates of the Caribbean ride then.

This week it seems we’ve jumped a time-track. We’ll get it back on track shortly, I just need to recalibrate my time scanner… thing. Look, I’ve read the TARDIS manual and I still have absolutely no idea what this part is so I guess I’m just going to throw it out. It’s The Nightmare Fair, written by Graham Williams, adapted by John Ainsworth, and released in November of 2009. The Nightmare Fair can be purchased for $13 (or your local equivalent) on Big Finish’s website.


Show-notes:

0:41 Jamie Robertson’s Doctor Who theme for the Mary Shelly stories.
3:41 More about the Lost Stories audio range and a full list of lost stories.
4:14 Which is The Masters of Luxor. This story is set in Las Vegas, but was rejected for being too unrealistic since it didn’t feature any mafia members. This also made it unreleaseistic, so it never got made.
4:25 That one’s easy to remember, it’s called Genesis of the Genesis of the Ice Warriors of the Daleks.
4:49 The Queen of Time ft. The Queen of Time.
8:37 Nara Dreamland was a Japanese theme park inspired by Disney that opened in 1961 and closed in 2006.
8:50 The same channel as in the link above exploring Six Flags New Orleans.
9:18 A couple articles about Kowloon Walled City. They tore it down more than 20 years ago, but I wish I could’ve seen it in person.
9:52 Judge Dredd is a comic book series/character. There were a couple movie adaptations, including one in 1995, one in 2012. According to the Wikipedia page for Mega City One, where the story takes place, it wasn’t inspired by KWC.
20:11 Maybe this is the article about time going slower when you’re a kid, I don’t know. It’s tl;dr so I have no idea what it says either. Feel free to check it out though. I sure as heck won’t stop you.
26:32 No.

Episode 12: The World According to Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp’s word is law. It is the only law.

This month Kiyan and Dylan have returned to watch yet another movie trilogy. As they do every other month. But this month they’ve got a bit of a supernatural bent, because it’s Pirates of the Caribbean. Featuring an extensive discussion about the Pirates ride, which is something that we have personal experience with. That’s a first for this podcast I think.


Show-notes:


2:15 Eisner and Verbinski clashed over what to include on the original poster for Pirates 1.
3:07 Apparently it’s Night of the Day of the Dawn of the Son of the Bride of the Return of the Revenge of the Terror of the Attack of the Evil, Mutant, Alien, Flesh Eating, Hellbound, Zombified Living Dead Part 2: In Shocking 2-D.
17:14 1500s.
19:55 Good old Johnny wanted to make a movie his kids could watch so he made Pirated-R Rats of the Cari-PG-13-en.
20:25 Pirates.
24:21 The world according to Orlando Bloom.
24:43 Press Kit of the Caribbean.
33:25 Elliot and Rossio predict this podcast…
57:20 Multiple sources on the internet said this was true, so it has to be true.
57:57 3 seconds of google didn’t immediately give me the answer, so I gave up.

Too lazy to timestamp all this VFX crap, so here it is. Also too lazy to make link text:

Audio Ep. 5: Wolf Catapult ft. Flight Through Entirety

My cunning plan to win Eurovision is to bring a Wolf Catapult to my performance.

This week we’re joined by Brendan and Nathan for what is quite possibly the most inefficient (but surely the most interesting) summary of a Doctor Who story in existence. The four hosts proceed to spend about 2 hours explaining the 2 hour long story. It might just be quicker to read the wikipedia page for the story while listening to it. But that wouldn’t be as fun, now would it? We also spend upwards of 10 minutes just trying to end the episode. It’s Bang -Bang-a-Boom! written by Gareth Edwards and Clayton Hickman and released in December of 2002. Bang-Bang-a-Boom! can be purchased for $3 (or your local equivalent) on Big Finish’s website.


Show-notes:

10:56 The Mostly Made-up Doctor Who Episode Guide is still one of the best Doctor Who podcasts out there. Why don’t you, uh, go and, uh, take a listen to them? Uh? Right there. Go on. Do it.
7:56 And now with the magic of the internet you can listen to Lulu’s Boom Bang a Bang from Eurovision 1969 whenever you want. Relive the glory days with the power of modern technology. And get off my lawn. There’s not wifi on my lawn.
9:24 Something something something about rights, bla bla, where’s all the cool stuff like those holographic wolves?
13:33 Space:1999: for dummies: like us: cause we knew nothing about it: the wiki article: the animated series: the movie.
35:52 Here’s drwhoguide. Last updates 22-DEC-2013.
1:00:10 Don’t let your dreams be dreams. Follow them. Just like Shia did.
1:47:12 Flight Through Entirety. Also find them at all the other usual places like Facer, Twitbook, etc.

To make your job a bit easier, here’s some links to audios Brendan mentioned: The One DoctorLuna Romana, And the Pirates, The High Price of Parking (the first Mel&Ace one), The Dark Husband, The Wrong  Doctors, The Kingmaker, Red

Audio Ep. 4: I Shot the Sheriff

But I did not shoot the vortisaur.

This is the start of our crazy little romp through Big Finish/Virgin Missing Adventures/questionable quality. It’s Storm Warning, written by Alan Barnes and released in January of 2001. Storm Warning can be purchased for $3 (or your local equivalent) on Big Finish’s website.


Show-notes:


10:56 Room 217 in the book and 237 in the movie.
22:55 Ok, if you like pretty great stories that only take like a minute to read and are also literal trash, here’s Franz Kafka’s Before the Law (one translation of it).
34:43 The de-mat gun, as seen in Invasion of Time. That’s right Rassilon. Yeah. Get out of here. And get your name off this stupid gun. Oh, it’s not on it. Well still get out. Jerk.

Episode 163: Explosions and Motorcycles

Hey look, kaboom and vroom rhyme.

This week we start a new era, and then immediately end it. It’s a single episode long, albeit a much longer than usual episode. It’s a bit weird, you may not have heard of it. It’s called The TV Movie, written by Matthew Jacobs and aired in May of 1996.


Show-notes:


22:55 He should have worn it cause he’s not a crook.
39:53 They mentioned it again in Invasion of Time.
48:06 I don’t know if it’s a reference but the guy was Kevin Briggs.

The Seventh Doctor Retrospective

And with that, it ends.

Trust Your Doctor would like to announce that we’re going on a 7 year hiatus. We’ll return with the TV Movie in April of 2024. Until then, we hope you enjoy this look back at the Seventh Doctor as well as the classic show as a whole.


Show-notes:


14:18 Mostly Made Up Doctor Who Episode Guide is one of the best Doctor Who podcasts out there.
22:21 “Dinner tonight’s going to be a national disaster” is the real quote. Best quote. Best character. Bring back the chef.
26:24 300 came out in the year 300. Jk it came out in 2006.
33:25 Apparently British colonization in Australia lasted from 1788 to 1901.

Episode 11.5: Pyrotechnic Energy Plasmoids

Do you even know what pyrotechnics are?

This month you can tell we were kind of scraping the bottom of the barrel. The problem is not that there’s no X-Men stuff to cover, it’s that theres too much. And too much of it is too complex for us to put together an episode in a month. So we decided to cover Night of the Sentinels, the first two episodes of X-Men: The Animated Series. It was written by Mark Edwards Eden and aired in October and November of 1992.


Show-notes:


3:26 Dazzler. Weird how her Wikipedia page has more info than her X-Men Wiki page. Anyway, she was in Pryde of the X-Men, but I don’t remember her being a big part of the story. Don’t think she was in the movies.
4:59 For more info about The Road, read this article about The Road, conveniently titled The Road. You can also read it on the road. Or you could just read The Road.
5:04 No, that’s The Long Walk, the first book Stephen King ever wrote. But not the first he published. And sure as hell not the last. Dang Stephen King.
8:29 Look at this. I mean look at this. This is just a random cartoon and it looks so much better than most stuff out there. Of course they did blow a ton of the animation budget on the intro and the actual series looks nowhere near as good 99% of the time, but still.

Episode 162: Self Offense Class

No offense intended, of course.

We did it. We’ve reached the end of the classic Doctor Who. The show is dead. We’re dead. Everything is dead. Which is kind of weird, because the story is called Survival. It was written by Rona Munro and aired in November and December of 1989.


Show-notes:


6:30 Wow, it’s real. But apparently black cat appreciation day also exists and is on August 17th. I have my calendar marked. Actually I don’t.
11:51 Probably Doctor Who and the Silurians.
21:25 According to this National Geographic article from 3 years ago, Cheetah’s are between 40 and 50 percent successful, less than other big cats.
50:22 Mostly Made Up Doctor Who Episode Guide is now my favorite Doctor Who podcast.
