Eleventh Doctor

Episode 247: It’ll Never Get That Bad Again

We’re out of it now.

This week Kiyan and Dylan finally put the first 50 years of the podcast to rest. I mean the first 50 years of Doctor Who. Same thing in the end, really, when you think about it. The podcast has existed as long as the show has, didn’t you know that? I thought it was common knowledge but I suppose there is a possibility that it wasn’t. Well now you know. It’s The Day of the Doctor, written by Steven Moffat and aired on November 23, 2013.


Show-notes:


5:45 The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot. Knock yourself out.
7:37 The Night of the Doctor and The Last Day.
18:00 Pretty much every source out there ranks these differently. Some don’t include non-elected leaders and some don’t count Donald Trump as a politician. Here’s just one list. The one I was looking at obviously forgot to include Narendra Modi. Also the queen of Jordan’s name is Rania Al-Abdullah.
24:39 Check out our Blake’s 7 podcast, Zenith.
29:19 Based on these medieval manuscripts, it looks like last millennia’s royal weddings were attended more by nobles than by normal people.
37:21 Genesis of the Remembrance.
38:29 Harry Sullivan did leave in Terror of the Zygons.

Episode 246: Do Androids Dream of Electric Peeps?

I’m pretty sure electric peeps would suck even worse than normal peeps.

You know, we kind of have experience with dealing with something we like to pretend doesn’t exist. It’s called Trust Your Doctor, Episode 1. We even rerecorded it like 5 years later, and then literally replaced it in the podcast feed so no one would see the original version. Kind of like our version of the War Doctor. Except you can still totally find episode 1. As if I’d tell you where though. It’s Name of the Doctor, written by Steven Moffat and aired on May 18, 2013.


Show-notes:


18:20 According to Paul’s Unofficial Letterbox Pages, “Most houses in Britain have a letter box in the front door, usually a simple slot with a flap over it, through which the post is delivered each morning.” No mention of personal mailboxes outside people’s houses like you see in the states.
21:25 And thus the essence of all crime is undivulged.
20:19 I think the only thing I’ve linked to more than this River Song timeline is the asteroid/meteor/meteorite differences table thing from nasa.
25:08 Arrival is a movie about alien linguistics.
33:49 Some of the best J.K. Rowling tweets.
55:02 Check out our Blake’s 7 podcast, Zenith.

Episode 245: Nightmare in Quicksilver

What ever happened to Quicksilver anyway?

In about twenty years I’m hoping to buy Disneyland. Why, you might ask? Because I want to rebuild it in our image. I want to build an entire Trust Your Doctor themed theme park. We’ll have the Aztecs land, where we just have people walk around dressed as Tegana. And then there’ll be the Koquillian cosplayers and… It’s Nightmare in Silver, written by Neil Gaiman and aired on May 11, 2013.


Show-notes:


6:54 The Quicksilver secene in X Men Days of Future Past is an instant classic. The knockoff followup in Apocalypse is just embarrassing in comparison.
8:36 Check our our nearly dead Blake’s 7 podcast Zenith. Actually it’s on life support, barely hanging on thanks to us constantly mentioning it on Trust Your Doctor.
10:10 The rides in Wonder Park look really safe.
12:32 Footage of Six Flags New Orleans
13:50 It was The Silver Turk, released in 2011.
15:18 Fool’s mate can be done in just 4 moves (2 turns on each side).

Episode 244: Lucasarts Did it First

One day we’ll be able to prove that, but not today.

When we recorded this there was a bout a 15 minute period where we just got paralyzed with fear. Turns out the Crimson Horror is the lobster we bought as a pet for the podcast. Of course, we’re only ever in the recording room once a week so the poor guy didn’t get much socialization. You might think he died, well actually he just came up with a extremely convoluted plan to overthrow the podcast. It’s The Crimson Horror, written by Mark Gatiss and aired on May 4, 2013.


Show-notes:


0:31 Damn my past self for asking me to link to this.
1:53 Last year Ahmed Best revealed he almost killed himself over the backlash against his role as Jar Jar. We discussed some of the reasons against the backlash years ago on our movie trilogy podcast Triple Play.
7:05 Check out our Blake’s 7 podcast, Zenith.
11:50 Space Fall is a great Blake’s 7 podcast.
33:00 Can’t blame Disney for this.

Episode 243: Elon Musk’s New “Innovation”

How many things has Elon invented now?

Trust Your Doctor is a complex beast. We record in an office so sparse and huge it’s comparable to the TARDIS itself. We even have a whole room just singularly dedicated to cotton candy. Like. It’s just walls and walls of cotton candy machines. That’s all that’s in there. This is a 100% true fact. It’s Journey to the Center of the TARDIS, written by Steve Thompson and aired on April 20, 2013.


Show-notes:


0:37 The Rock was actually in the sequel to the 2008 Journey to the center of the Earth, Journey 2: The Mysterious Island.
1:19 Michael Caine on Jaws: The Revenge: “No [I haven’t seen it]. But I have seen the house it bought for my mum. It’s fantastic.”
1:49 Check out our discussion of Iron Man on our other podcast Triple Play.
14:09 Challenger was the one in 1986 that blew up when it took off. Columbia was the one that blew up when it was coming back in 2003.
25:22 Not gonna link the 2018 Slender man trailer again. That thing gave me nightmares last week. Instead have this harmless wikipedia link.
33:49 Free Solo is a movie about a guy who climbs mountains without equipment.
40:43 Here’s the documentary from 1986.
47:10 Young Goodman Brown.

Episode 242: Floral Print Pants

Nooo, not the floral print, please, not the floral print!

The other day we were recording the podcast and then suddenly discovered that our recording studio is haunted. We’re currently being haunted by our great-great-great-great-grandchildren. Weirdly enough they’re still doing a podcast that far in the future. If you all wanted to know when Doctor Who would end, I can tell you it doesn’t end before our descendants get their grubby hands all over our podcast. It’s Hide, written by Neil Cross and aired on April 20, 2013.


Show-notes:


1:30 Neil Cross’ only ongoing show is Luther. I thought his other show Hard Sun was still ongoing but it’s not.
2:22 Omega tried to harness the power of antimatter in Arc of Infinity.
5:11 Here’s all the other stuff Jessica Raine and Dougray Scott have been in.
6:02 Horace Walpole wrote the Castle of Otranto.
12:27 Next time I have any problem, big or small, supernatural or not, I know who I’m gonna call.
18:20 Check out our Blake’s 7 podcast Zenith.
20:10 Truth or Dare is a recent horror movie from Blumhouse. And yeah the characters in it are really dumb.
21:31 Here’s the blog post that maps out all the references to Cumbria.
36:25 The projector scene from the new It.
40:59 Slender Man was a meme horror character from like 5-10 years ago. There was a Slender Man movie last year (warning: the link is to an official trailer with some scary shit in it, watch at your own risk).
45:43 It was Monster of Peladon.
53:18 Playing in the Dark
54:51 Time dilation sounds like some complicated shit.
55:31 Must suck to be Sarah Winchester. (Disclaimer: I didn’t actually read any of this page)
59:15 Thomas Pynchon may be a secretive reclusive, but he lent his voice to The Simpsons at one point.
59:24 The Last Question is actually by Isaac Asimov.

Episode 241: Check Out Duran Duran

Only true Duran Duran fans listen to this podcast.

You know, sometimes I wonder how hard it must have been if you were an American or British spy and you were sent into Russia. You have to spend months, if not years, learning Russian, and then you have to perfect it to the point where you have basically no accent at all. And then if you do have an accent, well, good luck buddy you’ll probably get shot on sight. It’s Cold War, written by Mark Gatiss and aired on April 13, 2013.


Show-notes:


1:38 The Seeds of Death was in season 6, The Seeds of Doom was in season 13.
10:38 Ronald Reagan: 1981-1989. George H.W. Bush: 1989-1993. Bill Clinton: 1993-2001.
11:30 It was Yuri Andropov.
16:16 We (I) got some stuff wrong here, but wikipedia has a pretty good article on Japanese holdout. Hiroo Onoda is probably the most famous.
17:00 We also do a movie trilogy podcast called Triple Play.
19:30 According to Manatee-World, manatees can’t live in water below 60 degrees Fahrenheit, so there aren’t any arctic manatees.
25:17 It looks like Sony still makes the Walkman as an mp3 player.
34:37 Images of the Cold War playset.
43:17 According to imdb, Jenna Coleman was born on 27 April 1986, making her 32 right now. Her bio doesn’t mention anything about her early life that would be linguistically interesting, so I don’t know what, if anything, is up with her accent.

Episode 240: Russell “Rose Tyler” Davies

How many Rose Tyler jokes can we make before this gets old?

If you believe the fan theory that Doctor Who is just based on someone going back in time and reconstructing what the episodes should look like based on our podcast then by that theory our podcast represents not only how Doctor Who is, but how it could have been, how it should have been, and how it wasn’t. We literally represent every possible timeline of Doctor Who, right here in this podcast. Hey if it Stephen Moffat can do it so can I. It’s The Rings of Akhaten, written by Neil Cross and aired on April 7, 2013.


Show-notes:


0:56 I’m guessing this is other Russel Davies.
1:49 Dwayne The Rock Johnson (a.k.a. the Fourteenth Doctor) usually eats like a week’s worth of food on Sundays.
2:19 The other shows Neil Cross writes/wrote for.
11:37 One’s near a church, the other’s not. That’s it.
18:50 This is the billionth time I’ve linked to this chart and I have become exceedingly efficient at it.
20:44 it was the Dogon people from Mali, actually in West Africa.
33:48 The Hath.
57:07 Unicron is a planet-sized Transformer.
57:40 I actually miss Blake’s 7 and the podcast we made about it, Zenith.

Episode 239: It’s Not a Leaf, It’s a Bomb

Who could have seen that coming?

I’m actually pretty sure the first time I saw this episode I thought Moffat was really clever for the whole “bells of St. John” thing. And you know, I still do. On the other hand though, he’s aware enough to make a joke about it, but where did the St. John’s Ambulance logo go during all those years between like 1970-something and now? In universe the exterior design of the TARDIS isn’t supposed to change so… where dit that logo go? It’s The Bells of St. John, written by Stephen Moffat and aired on March 30, 2013.


Show-notes:


4:31 Neuralink is the company Elon Musk started to create real Cybermen. And no, he doesn’t live in the house he was born in. Lol.
8:10 BBC article about how American accents resemble the British accents of a couple hundred years ago.
12:33 Summer Falls was actually published as an ebook.
22:17 National Geographic footage of a deep-sea squid interacting with bombs.
23:03 A painting by Banksy was put up for auction a few months ago and was shredded as soon as it was sold.
38:38 David Tenant started a new podcast last month.

Episode 238: More Deadly than Mary Poppins

Mary Poppins? Now there’s a name I have not heard in a long time.

Ding dong, turns out Christmas is here again, in February! Hasn’t Christmas just passed? Like, two months ago, or not even. A month a week, on this podcast anyway. That’s kind of weird, I’d say this is the shortest period between two Christmas Specials, but during the 12th Doctor’s Era we get two in a row, which naturally has to be the shortest possible period. It’s The Snowmen, written by Stephen Moffat and aired on December 25, 2012.


Show-notes:


20:13 The Artful Dodger sounds like kind of a sketch guy.
32:23 Apparently Russell T. Davies is actually a pseudonym and as far as I can tell the “T” doesn’t stand for anything. His real name is is Stephen Russell Davies. The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction says he added the T to avoid confusion with another Russell Davies.
32:32 The children’s show I was talking about here was Century Falls, which came out i 1993. I think I was mixing up the characters with another Russel T. show, Bob & Rose, which has a character named Rose Cooper. I’ve never watched either of these shows, so I could be wrong about this.
33:41 Full text of How Watson Learned the Trick and The Hound of the Baskervilles.
52:27 The hardest Sherlock Holmes story to solve in my opinion is The Boscombe Valley Mystery. The other stories we mentioned here were The Six Napoleons and The Blue Carbuncle.
57:35 Miss Marple is one of the most famous female fictional detective.
