303: Complementary Desert Eagle (Ghost Machine)

Not to be confused with Ghost IN The Machine.

If I had a ghost machine, I’d open that puppy up when I got into my apartment to find out if someone died in here. I might not want to actually know that, actually. Can you imagine if Gwen took the machine home, fired it up, and then boom just a straight montage of 6 murders happening in her home? The trauma that would induce. It’s Ghost Machine, written by Helen Raynor and aired on October 29, 2006.


Show-notes:


3:45: Relive our golden years with Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast or our sad attempt to recapture the magic with Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast.
18:33: Here’s the link to our April Fool’s episode… I still can’t believe we did this.
28:25: Meant 90 degrees here.

1:26:38: I can’t believe I’ve never heard of Chocolate Rain sequel Cherry Chocolate Rain.
1:27:44: Blue Jeans and Bloody Tears for Eurovision 2020.
1:31:29: Hey, it’s Fred!

302: The Seven Sins of Torchwood (Day One)

And the secret 0th sin: existence.

The name of this story evokes strong memories of… something. Another story or tv show or movie and I just can’t really place what it is. I seriously feel like I watched something called Day One once upon a time and I genuinely cannot remember what the heck it was. That’s so weird. It’s Day One, written by Chris Chibnall and aired on October 22, 2006.


Show-notes:
4:27: You’re welcome for this masterpiece of movie musical history. My personal favourite part is 1:19, when a dancer launches a bowling ball sideways accidentally and the shot immediately cuts, presumably to avoid showing the carnage that caused.
8:40: Every time.
16:14: If you want to listen us talk about classic sci-fi shows like Sapphire & Steel or The Prisoner, check out our classic sci-fi podcast, Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast.
27:01: FBI, OPEN UP
43:16: Yes, there really is a page for masturbation on the tardis wiki.
56:50: Here’s the trailer for Vampire Diary. Y’know, I kind of miss the edginess of the mid 00s.
58:00: Yeah, I was completely wrong here. Twilight was never a Harry Potter fanfic. Dylan was right. It was 50 Shades that started as a Twilight fanfic.

301: A Christian Reading of Torchwood (Everything Changes)

I’m probably the worst person to do this kind of reading honestly.

The title of this weeks episode of Torchwood is surprisingly apt for the change in the show that we’re also going to experience. Which is why Kiyan was able to so expertly make that pun last week about it. Well not much else to say besides that. It’s Everything Changes, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on October 22, 2006.


Show-notes:


8:40: If you want to listen to us talk about Blake’s 7, check out our Blake’s 7 podcast, Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast.
9:41: And if you want to listen to us talk about old shows that aren’t Doctor Who or Blake’s 7, check out our classic sci-fi podcast, Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast.
19:04: OR if you want to listen to us talk about movie trilogies, check out our movie trilogy podcast, Triple Play: A Movie Trilogy Podcast.
42:50: All of this is wrong. Cardiff Bay technically is in a river, but if you look on a map, it’s basically right where the river opens up into the sea. So it’s basically the sea. My bad.
50:50: Apparently pterosaurs are the the biggest things ever to fly through the skies lol.
1:29:29: Here’s the cover of The Lives of Captain Jack. Pretty great.

Redux 7: Bondage Spiderwebs (Time and the Rani)

I only like bondage anthills personally.

So we’ve come to the end of our little journey, which means it’s time to jump back into the late 2000’s for some quality early 21st century television. But before that, we have to suffer through Pip and Jane Baker’s masterpiece. Some say it’s their greatest work, their magnum opus. It’s Time and the Rani, written by Pip and Jane Baker and aired between September 7th and 28th, 1987.


Show-notes:


6:47: Much as I hate to link to this AGAIN, here’s The Bikini Bottom Horror.
10:57: If you want to listen to us talk about Back to the Future (and Crispin Glover’s legal battle), you’re in luck I guess.
17:29: Here’s a quick (but kind of old-ish) video about Hong Kong’s cage housing.
21:07: Behold: the Area 51 Naruto runner
22:30: Here’s the stupid asteroid/meteor/meteorite overview thing AGAIN.
37:16: If you want to listen to us talk about classic sci-fi, check out our classic sci-fi podcast Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast. Oh, and we also have a completed Blake’s 7 podcast called Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast. So if you wwant to hear a Blake’s 7 podcast from us, check that out.
43:37: Or maybe Gotye’s now regretting not monetizing his youtube videos. (Probably not but you never know.)

Redux 6 : Chekhov’s Stinger (Mindwarp)

It’s like a shitty version of the mystery mobile.

Alright gang buckle up because we’re coming to the end of this insane ride and we’re doing it right. And by doing it righ I mean we’re mindwarping ourselves, so I’ll putting my brain in Kiyan and he’s putting his brain in me and then absolutely nothing will change because as it turns out in the TYD canon we don’t really have defined characters. Or do we? Also we’ll be retconning that away in two weeks when we start Torchwood so. It’s Mindwarp, written by Philip Martin and aired between October 4th and 25th, 1986.


Show-notes:
2:09: Actual recorded audio of Philip Martin bailing.
6:56: The novel that features Sil is called Mission to Magnus. It came out in 1990… and also has the Ice Warriors in it?!
15:40: Actually according to the Tardis wiki, Perpugilliam means “she who lives in the hills.” So I don’t know what the hell I was talking about here.
19:33: The Rock actually streamed some of his “cheat day” meals recently. (Or maybe he always does this? I don’t know.) Here’s one of them.
24:16: Triple Play: A Movie Trilogy Podcast is a podcast where we talk about movie trilogies and that you should check out if you want to listen to us talk about movie trilogies in podcast format.
31:40: Dudley Simpson had already stopped composing for the show by this point.
36:09: Rare footage of Sil
55:17: Funny that we should mention Sapphire & Steel here considering we’re watching it for one of our other podcasts, Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast.
1:05:40: Yeah, the 1970 Cromwell movie has Alec Guinness in it.
1:07:47: Funny we should mention Blake’s 7 here since we have a completed Blake’s 7 podcast called Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast.
1:08:35: Vargas was the name of Brian Blessed’s character in Blake’s 7.

Redux 5: Sea Devil’s Advocate (Warriors of the Deep)

Can’t wait to see all of the Sea Devil photoshops we’ll get out of this.

I find it interesting that in reality the Silurians are the ones in charge of this story, completely and utterly. But while they may be the ones in control, they aren’t the ones who lend their name to the title of the story. The Sea Devils don’t really do anything except show up and cap a bunch of fools, and then they just kind of… die. And yet somehow the story is named after them? It’s Warriors of the Deep, written by Johnny Byrne and aired between January 5th and 13th , 1984.


Show-notes:


9:44: Check out our classic sci-fi podcast, Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast.
14:28: This is the Ulysses cover I was talking about.
18:27: Here’s an article from Cornell about how swim bladders and lungs are actually the same thing after all. And here’s an article from Live Science about how our ears are actually gills.
28:12: Check out our Blake’s 7 podcast, Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast.
33:38: Actual recorded audio of Vislor Turlough in the year 2084.
44:30: If you for some reason want to listen to us talk about Predator or Alien (but not Alien vs. Predator), then check out our movie trilogy podcast, Triple Play: A Movie Trilogy Podcast.
57:35: Here’s the “I miss the internet” comic.
1:17: It’s at about 22:05 in episode 4.

Redux 4: Anthony Read’s Timeless Children (Underworld)

What if Anthony Read had actually written The Timeless Children?

Personally I find that my dreams have taken me to the real life underworld much more than this story ever did. It’s pretty hellish down there, so I’m gonna give you all a warning. I’ve become best buds with some of my demons though, which is cool. They bought be a soda last week, that was nice of them. It’s Underworld, written by Bob Baker and Dave Martin and aired between January 7th and 28th , 1978.


Show-notes:


1:17: Check out our classic sci-fi podcast, Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast.
9:59: If you want to listen to us talk about Despicable Me for some reason, here you go.
18:50: Have fun with this horror.
38:30: Check out Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast, which is our Blake’s 7 podcast.
1:02:16: This is the scene from Neverending Story that I was talking about. I apologize in advance.
1:03:26: Here’s a bit from the University of California San Francisco about the whole smoking in Disney movies thing.
1:22:03: Ok, to set the record straight, this is what The Awakening is about.

Redux 3: That Vague Memory of 6 Years Ago (The Monster of Peladon)

I only have vague memories of 6 years ago apparently.

In this episode Kiyan will espouse the belief that you should watch Monster of Peladon every single day, over and over and over again until you get it. Now I don’t necessarily disagree, but I have to wonder, is that what people want us to do with The Massacre? And if so, how is this not just some sort of twisted version of stockholm syndrome? It’s Monster of Peladon, written by Brian Hayles and aired between March 23 and April 27, 1974.


Show-notes:


8:13: The basic premise of 4 to Doomsday is that some aliens are on a spaceship headed to earth and are going to wipe out humanity with a virus.
12:05: According to the Doctor Who wiki the Fourth Doctor used a sonic lance on his sonic screwdriver in Robot.
21:30: I was talking about The Aims of Discourse by James Kinneavey. You can read it at that link for free with a jstor account.
38:43: Check out Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast. We’re currently (at the time of writing this) watching Sapphire and Steel.
1:04:36: Looks like Cold Warrior is just a random tv show from 1984. I could barely find any info about it other than this wiki page and an even more threadbare imdb page.

Redux 2: It Is I, British Man (The Space Pirates)

It’s me, the newest superhero!

I’m not saying that we’ve engaged in time piracy, stealing Doctor Who from the present then talking about it in the past and then having the show recreate the show from our podcast, but I’m not saying that we didn’t either. Why didn’t Bo Holmes write a story about Time Pirates instead? That would have been way more interesting. We were right all along. It’s The Space Pirates. Written by Robert Holmes and aired between March 8 and April 12, 1969.


Show-notes:


23:24: Check out our Blake’s 7 podcast, Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast.
28:57: Apparently it’s just a myth that the navy has more aircraft than the air force. At least according this Business Insider article from 2015 about debunking military myths.
33:30: Here’s Bob Saget’s take on the “The Aristocrats” joke.
1:17:15: Ben Steed’s first story on Blake’s 7 was Harvest of Kairos.
1:23:04: Pretty sure the movie I was thinking of here was The Box.

Redux 1: A Little Religious Strife Never Hurt Anyone (The Massacre)

This week the meme comes… Full Circle.

We have returned to the site of our greatest defeat to try once again. The serial where we have broken so far from common accepted fan criticism. And we stand here, upon the ruins of our empire, to say… We were right all along. It’s The Massacre… again. Written by John Lucarotti and Donald Tosh and aired between February 5th and 26th, 1966.


Show-notes:


0:55: I couldn’t find which one it was. If anyone knows, let us know. =
12:25: When I said “medieval times” here, I meant Medieval Times, the American dinner theater thingamajig. Still wonder why and how Medieval Times exists and is successful sometimes, but hey.
32:06: Yeaaaahhh, can’t find the comment from Peter Purves either. So don’t take my word for it.
1:01:40: Check out Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast, a Blake’s 7 podcast.
