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 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.

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.
50:18 Find them at flightthroughentirety.sexy

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.
