240: Russell “Rose Tyler” Davies (The Rings of Akhaten)

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 12: Spherical Things With Cool Colors

And that was how we discovered that Blake was actually Willy Wonka.

Look, I really really need to deliver this item to that planet over there to save my race. Wait you mean you’ve done this before? 5 weeks ago? With Destiny? It’s Deliverance, written by Terry Nation and aired on March 20, 1978.


Show-notes:


4:00 Making Blake‘s 7’s twitter account is (I think) done with its production journal, but they documented a bunch of rare stuff about Blake’s 7.
10:50 Just read Gan‘s intro on the Blake’s 7 wiki. Merciless.
24:32 Trust Your Doctor is out Doctor Who podcast. Check it out.
48:04 Our other podcast Triple Play is about movie trilogies and junk. It’s really good(?) so check it out. Probably the epitome of podcasting.
48:48 Here’s Down and Safe. And here’s Space Fall on twitter since it looks like they don’t have their own site.
54:24 Mostly Made-up Doctor Who Episode Guide is one of the best Doctor Who podcasts in existence. Check it out.

Episode 8: Pride and Prejudice and Blake’s 7

The best Jane Austen rewrite is the one that features Kerr Avon.

This episode is pretty beloved. Not this episode of Blake’s 7, this episode of Zenith. It’s basically all down hill from here is what I’m saying. It’s Duel, written by Terry Nation and aired on February 20, 1978.


Show-notes:


0:40 Check out our long-running, award-winning, Doctor Who podcast Trust Your Doctor, which has been called a groundbreaking landmark in the Doctor Who podcasting world and hailed by millions as the greatest audio experience of the 21st century.
6:43 Eureka Seven is a Japanese animated series and one of my favorite tv series of all time. It’s heavily inspired by Blake’s 7.
20:44 War has changed.
25:22 I’ve never seen Darmok, but that alien looks pretty dumb. Just saying.
26:18 Martian Odyssey is a short story. Tweel for president.
26:40 The Martian is a 2015 comedy movie starring Matt Damon.
27:37 Check out our movie trilogy podcast Triple Play, which has been called a monumental achievement in the podcasting genre and gained internationally-recognized status as the official podcast of all 195 countries.
28:07 The Diamond Lens was actually written in 1858, but it’s still pretty insane and good.
32:04 This song from The Life of David Gale is used in a bunch of movie trailers.
32:42 Johan Johansson. RIP in pieces. Also, it’s called Sun’s Gone Dim.
43:05 Couldn’t find one for Crime and Punishment, but there’s always Abraham Lincoln Vampire Slayer.

Audio 16: I’m a Real Penguin (The Holy Terror)

As it turns out, Penguins are the third largest flightless bird in the world after the Australian emu and the German mole rat.

After last week’s rather depressing adventure, Kiyan and Dylan are back to talk about a much more uplifting and funny… oh nevermind. Well it started funny and uplifting. It… just didn’t end that way. It’s The Holy Terror, written by Robert Shearman and released in November of 2000. The Holy Terror can be purchased for $3 (or your local equivalent) on Big Finish’s website. It’s also on Spotify.


Show-notes:


1:02 The M4 Sherman?
8:21 Googling “dammit dammit dammit” told me it’s from Robot Chicken, so let’s go with that.
11:32 According to “Jeffrey Tan, coach for sleeping habits,” no, you can’t drown asleep.
21:11 Surprisingly the punchline of R. Kelly’s “Trapped in the Closet” isn’t that he’s coming out of the closet. I think. I never finished it. And it’s still ongoing, so who knows?
23:57 Her name was Genie. No relation to the Disney character Genie, from the romantic comedy fantasy animated feature film Aladdin.
29:34 Ursula Le Guin’s “Why Are Americans Afraid of Dragons?” Knock yourself out.
38:03 Really hope that comic book bubble bursts soon. And that Neil Gaiman bubble.
44:12 Couldn’t find it within 30 seconds on Google, so I gave up!
47:04 A morphologist is someone who studies morphology. Duh.

92: What Does God Need With a Spaceship? (The Face of Evil)

Star Trek V: The Final Frontier was not the best Star Trek film.

This week Kiyan and Dylan boldly go where many people have gone before to discover the Doctor’s new companion, Leela! Not to be confused with other characters named Leela that are famous in other franchises. How confusing. The serial of introduction is The Face of Evil, written by Chris Boucher and aired in January of 1977.

Sidenote, Chris Boucher was script editor and not show runner. Minor error, large difference. On the upshot, here’s the character who crossed over between Doctor Who and Blake’s 7, possibly establishing them in the same universe. Decorative Vegetable Blake’s 7 podcast confirmed?

85: Rainbow Tunnel of Death (Pyramids of Mars)

The colors! They burn!

This week Kiyan and Dylan make up a new term (biobabble), sort of explore a serial from Doctor Who, and indicate that Kiyan is half asleep. It’s been quite a week. The serial sort of covered this week is Pyramids of Mars, which was written by Stephen Harris (in reality Robert Holmes)  and aired in October and November of 1975.
