276: It’s Me Mickey Mouse! (Empress of Mars)

Since Disney owns nearly everything I can’t imagine this crossover is far behind.

Given how many times Mars has appeared on the show it should be pretty easy to assemble some sort of timeline of the Martian Empire right? Also, wasn’t that killer water that killed everything it ever touched in the polar ice caps? The one we learned about in Waters of Mars? Shouldn’t the gang be violently ill and trying to consume each other during almost the entirety of this episode? It’s Empress of Mars, written by Mark Gatiss and aired on June 10, 2017.


Show-notes:


4:22: Scratchman was “co-written” by James Goss. And by co-written I mean it was probably mostly written by him.
4:36: “With exclusive commentary ‘He Did It’ by the Goldman Family”
21:30: Pretty sure it was Zulu Dawn. And here’s a short description of the Great Emu War from Australian Geographic.
25:03: Here’s a pretty good (but poorly formatted) list of periods in British history.
33:28: John Cena’s theme

274: Are We Not All Just Fleshy Meatbags? (Oxygen)

This sounds like a shitty Rocky spinoff.

Sometimes, when I can’t breathe, I wonder what it would be like if I had to pay for my next breath. Like, if I was dying right now would I be willing to fork over the money required to keep on living? It’s a really interesting thing to think about, but also kind of horrifying. Is your life worth that much? It’s Oxygen, written by Jamie Mathieson and aired on May 13, 2017.


Show-notes:


0:30: The “Damn Daniel” meme came out about 3 and a half years ago, possible a little more. Because Internet is a new book from Gretchen McuCulloch, one of the hosts of the Lingthusiasm podcast.
3:30: It was The Pursuit of Happyness, but as usual I got what it was about wrong.
7:06: Check out Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast, a new podcast we started to discuss classic sci-fi.
9:32: It was Clive.
22:36: Check out Zenith, our Blake’s 7 podcast.

273: Only Kids Love Bugs (Knock Knock)

Sorry entomologists, I really hate to break this to you.

I always thought it was going to be four knocks, you know? Like, knock knock knock knock. At least that’s what that weird fortune teller told us it was going to be. But I guess the Twelfth Doctor only requires half as many knocks. I wonder what that says about him.  It’s Knock Knock, written by Mike Bartlett and aired on May 6, 2017.


Show-notes:


3:35 I think this is the album version of Song for Ten. This is the tv version for comparison. Also I can’t believe the Ballad of the Last Chance Saloon was also officially released.
4:33 Reach across the stars with our new science fiction podcast Inevitable. We’re watching Star Cops for season 1.
5:25 Palm Jumeirah is a series of artificial islands made to look like palm trees.
10:24 For our first watch of Troll 2, check out our Triple Play episode on the Troll “series”
16:59 It was way more than $600.
17:27 I guess Van Halen really didn’t like brown m&ms.
24:49 Yeah they eat wood.
31:58 It was Disturbia.
36:52 More on the Trump Nickelback meme fiasco
45:31 Here’s our Star Wars Holiday Special episode if you’re interested.
50:01 Children of the Stones intro

272: Glowing Cool Whip (Thin Ice)

Might be from the radioactive cool whip factory.

Did you ever notice how it’s always “thin ice” but never “thick ice.” You can never have thick ice, I guess, which is weird since most ice like glaciers are pretty thick. But then again I guess it depends if you measure thick or thin vertically or horizontally. It’s Thin Ice, written by Sarah Dollard and aired on April 29, 2017.

271: Watching the Star Wars Holiday Special Every Day (Smile)

I can think of worse ways to spend my time.

I just watched that Joker movie and now every time I see the word Smile I think of that song that tells you to Smile all the time. You know, Smile if you want to, Smile around the world, the B-52s one. I’m pretty sure that’s called Smile too. Wait no hang on that might be Roam. It’s Smile, written by Frank Cottrell Boyce and aired on April 22, 2017.


Show-notes:


1:16 The wikipedia page for the City of Arts and Sciences has some pretty good pictures of the real thing.
23:31 Apparently soylent green is a cookie/wafer thing. Also the movie takes place in a dystopian future where it’s like the best or only food source for a bunch of people.
29:09 Here’s an example of speed reading words in the same place on the screen.
40:08 The 100 is a fairly new post-apocalyptic tv series.
41:54 Necropolitics by Achille Mbembe

270: It Starts with an “S” and Ends With a “Tar Cops”(The Pilot)

Oh right, the Super La Brea Tar Cops. Of course, how could I miss that?

When I was a kid one of the professions I really wanted to be was a pilot. At first it was a doctor, but then I really wanted to be a pilot. Wait, a Doctor, a Pilot, my life growing up was basically wanting to be in Doctor Who. Chris, Chibnall, call me dude I have no agent and I work for exposure. It’s The Pilot, written by Steven Moffat and aired on April 15, 2017.


Show-notes:


14:57 Check out Triple Play, our movie trilogy podcast.
24:19 There’s only one M-rated Nardole story on fanfiction.net, and it doesn’t contain any BDSM content.

269: Underworld is the Citizen Kane of Doctor Who (The Return of Doctor Mysterio)

Truly, the greatest Doctor Who story of all time.

There’s been a lot of Christmas on the mind recently. There’s even a Christmas scene in The Pilot, so that’s like three weeks worth of Christmas for us, which is quite overwhelming if we’re completely honest. But hey, at least no more for another three months. It’s The Return of Doctor Mysterio, written by Steven Moffat and aired on December 25, 2016.

268: Johnny Depp in Wonderland (The Husbands of River Song)

Have you seen Johnny though? He looks like he’s always in Wonderland.

I’ll be honest, I probably won’t even have one husband in my life. So to hear that River has like, 3 at least, and really 15 if you count all 13 incarnations of the Doctor as different people is really impressive to me. I wonder if they all get along with each other. Pretty sure at least two incarnations of the Doctor don’t. It’s The Husbands of River Song, written by Steven Moffat and aired on December 25, 2015.


Show-notes:


0:50 Check out our movie trilogy podcast Triple Play. Or if you care even less for your sanity, check out these clips from the live action Grinch and Cat in the Hat movies.
7:09 Andy Serkis played Gollum in The Lord of the Rings.
37:28 Here it is again, the greatest Doctor Who horror fanfic of all time, Boiling Point.
1:13:22 This is the millionth time I’ve linked to this River Song timeline and I have become exceedingly efficient at it.
1:14:19 It was Dave Duerson.

266: Even More Proof That We Created Doctor Who (Face the Raven)

As opposed to a map show from literally any other country on Earth.

Recently I’ve actually become a bit attached to the crows in my neighborhood. I’ll be moving soon and I’m actually a little sad you know? The crows here just have such friendly personalities I’m going to really miss them. On the flip side, I’ve never actually met a raven, so if you’ve got one you want to share you know where I am. Actually no you don’t, but the point stands. It’s Face the Raven, written by Sarah Dollard  and aired on November 21, 2015.

265: I Feel a New Fan Fiction Coming On (Sleep No More)

Coming soon to Trust Your Doctor?

I purchased my Morpheus system from 3P Enterprises, and it was delivered in quick time. This is the only good thing I can say about the system. Within one month of purchase I’ve started to hear the Morpheus song, even when I’m in my personal sensory deprivation tank. Two months in and I’ve started to notice monsters in the corner of my eyes. My hands are starting to look and more like lobster claws. My significant other has turned into an orchid. 0/10 would not recommend for skipping sleep, although 10/10 replacement for hallucinogenics. It’s Sleep No More, written by Mark Gatiss and aired on  November 14, 2015.


Show-notes:


12:12 The Raven by Edgar Allen Poe.
12:40 I can’t believe you’ve done this.
13:00 Jeremiah Denton’s pow video again.
16:48 If you’ve read through My Immortal multiple times like me and want something new in the bad fanfiction genre then check out Sonic High School. It’s actually funnier than My Immortal. There’s also an expanded universe of sequels written by DarkDoomFireMaster himself.
19:05 Check out Zenith, our Blake’s 7 podcast.
24:56 Vin Diesel played Adrian Caparzo in Saving Private Ryan.
30:04 It was John Henry.
42:07 It was As Above, So Below. I’ve never watched this but it might be good.
