Episode 175: More Narcissistic Than Ever

Too many mirrors, not enough time to lick them all.

Looks like it’s time for Rose to actually travel with this mysterious, dashing new Doctor. In hindsight, it would be totally in character for the Tenth Doctor to lick the mirror when he looks at himself. Huh. It’s New Earth, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on April 15, 2006.


Show-notes


18:23 Which you can watch here. Probably the only time I’ve heard “backwards” get rhymed with “lack words.”
18:51 Which you can read here. But I highly suggest you don’t.
31:37 Volume 1: Hail to the King of the Jews, Baby!
31:55 Forgot this was directed and written by Mel Gibson.
31:57 The Book of Mormon is a 2011 musical.
34:20 Can’t wait for the new Spaceballs movie next month.

Episode 174: No More Petes, Just Howard

Everybody loves Howard, the new show from the BBC.

As it turns out, the best day to invade Earth is Christmas Day, 2006, when it just so happened the Doctor was totally out of commission. If the Sycorax had just showed up like 4 hours earlier they probably would have totally succeeded. It’s The Christmas Invasion, written by Russell T. Davies, and aired on December 25, 2005.


Show-notes:


10:06 Might as well link this again.
11:25 They’re actually called Roboforms and the Doctor says they behave like pilot fish.
12:40 Yeah, dogs can get hairballs. So wolves probably can too.
14:51 Apparently some people take shark cartilage as a supplement.
19:02 Whiplash from Iron Man 2. He’s not original to the movie obviously. He was created for comics.
22:42 I honestly don’t know if I believe this site or not, but according to it about 34% of people have A+ blood. That means A+ is the second most common blood type after O+. No idea about the royal family, but I did find out they’re Rh negative, which means they don’t have the Rh factor, whatever that is.
26:48 Yeah I am just making that up.
40:23 Controls emotions.
40:55 Immortal jellyfish, aka turritopsis dohrnii. This thing is creepy.
47:34 In regards to sexism in politics, the first episode of Revisionist History does a good job of summing it up. Here’s a Huffington Post article about it.
49:12 Song for 10. I think this is the version heard in this episode.
52:58 Thanks Radio Times.

The Ninth Doctor Retrospective

So its come to this. Reading the Doctor Who Annual.

Can you believe it? We’re just three doctors from catching up to the show. Well, it’ll be three again by this time next year, thanks to Jodie Whittaker. It feels like we’re on a never-ending treadmill of trying to catch up. It’s the Ninth Doctor Retrospective this week, where we also talk about the 2006 Doctor Who Annual, which was published in September 2005.


Show-notes:


2:27 Books. What are they?
3:46 You won’t even believe the truth about this.
12:38 How Watson Learned the Trick.
17:13 The Boscombe Valley Mystery.
17:35 The Six Napoleons and Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle.
33:33 What Queen song?
1:04:22 Junie B. Jones. Kind of sad to see that this series ended a couple years ago.

Episode 15: Jar Jar’s the Key to All of This

If he’s the key I don’t want to see what the lock looks like.

This month we tortured ourselves with the Star Wars Prequel Trilogy. Unless you’re Kiyan, then you discovered a newfound appreciation for actual trash. This is George Lucas’ magnum opus. Or as close to it as he’s ever going to get. The prequel trilogy was released in 1999, 2002, and 2005, respectively.


Show-notes:


2:41 Background stuff about Star Wars. This also covers the lead-up to Episode III, the best of the prequel trilogy.
4:31 The making of Episode I full documentary. Now might be a good time to drop this other Episode I behind the scenes stuff. And while we’re at it here’s more. Heck, here’s seven archived pages of stuff from 1999.
6:56 Spottraining.
10:16 UNSOLICITED. Her name was Robin Gurland I guess.
15:00 FUTURE.
24:13 Still good.
25:55 Check out our other podcast, Dust your Doctor.
28:56 Episode II documentary.
35:48 yeah that’s right, the kid who played kid Anakin now has schizophrenia.

Other stuff:
Yoda vs. Dooku
Darth Vader costume
Kashyyk, however you spell it

Episode 173: Setting the Bar So Low You Could Trip Over It

Even I could get over that bar.

Looks like we killed the 9th Doctor. Us. Directly. We called in the Daleks, told them that time was a bit weak around Satellite 5 and all that. We didn’t really expect them to show up to be honest, so imagine our surprise when we watched the Doctor die this week. Sorry about that, guess we shouldn’t be calling intergalactic criminals and genocidal maniacs. It’s Bad Wolf & The Parting of the Ways, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on the 11th and 18th of June, 2005.


Show-notes:


4:06 It was series 7.
5:24 As far as I can tell the house for Big Brother UK has changed its appearance frequently. Here’s a teaser for series 4 of Big Brother UK which aired a while before this episode. From what you can barely make out, it looks kind of similar.
5:34 Yeah, Weakest Link looks exactly the same though.
8:16 The Weakest Link and What Not To Wear were BBC shows, but Big Brother wasn’t.
9:34 What Not To Wear, the British version I guess. I found out what it was called by googling “British fashion tv show with two hosts.”

Episode 172: The Sensation of Wet Socks

How many socks have I lost to the rain?

We’ve engineered the perfect crisis. We’ll just blow this nuclear reactor here, followed by that one there, then launch a space station, then blow it up, then sink half of the eastern seaboard… I’m starting to think this whole making evil plans thing wasn’t as easy as I had originally assumed. It’s Boom Town, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on the 4th of June, 2005.


Show-notes:


6:27 The Wales Millennium Centre. Getting really sick of this “Millennium” huge shiny structure conspiracy.
6:44 The Foreigner. Oops, wrong one.

Episode 171: Show Me Your Moves

This is how we do it….

It’s time for the biggest war known to mankind in the 20th century maybe. The most devastating maybe if you lived in London. Yes I’m talking about World War Z. Er. II. World War II. It’s The Empty Child and The Doctor Dances, written by Stephen Moffat and aired on the 21st and 28th of May, 2005.


Show-notes:


2:17 In media res.
11:17 I wonder how I didn’t know this existed until now.
12:36 John Barrowman has been in stuff like Torchwood and the United States Congress.
25:39 Check out our other podcast Triple Play. Our most recent episode covers Alien: Resurrection.
26:21 .
33:22 Corn on the cob.
52:57 It’s actually Captain Falcon.
53:52 Gan ftw.

Episode 170: Death at a Funeral

Did you know that weddings might as well be funerals?

It’s our first seasonal special episode! Just kidding, we released a few episodes back in the day on Christmas/New Years, not that we marketed those as holiday specials. Also this isn’t really a holiday special, it’s just about an episode called Father’s Day. It was written by Paul Cornell and aired on May 14, 2005.


Show-notes:


2:14 This is the same Nathan from Flight Through Entirety, right?
6:45 Death at a Funeral. Never knew it was a remake of this British movie.
39:38 2007. Just trust me.

Episode 14.5: Completely Blank Stone Corridors

Stone, the womb from which man was born. I think.

Time to round out the original Alien quadrilogy with everybody’s favorite Alien movie, Alien Arrival. The 2016 one. Just kidding, I don’t think we’d survive that ordeal. It’s Alien: Resurrection written by Joss Whedon, directed by JeanPierre Jeunet and released on November 26, 1997.


Show-notes:


3:07 Hahahaha
15:04 Jayne is a girls’ name.

Episode 169: These Walls Aren’t Gold

Anybody got some gold I can use?

Back to the Future this week, we’re on a satellite that broadcasts all of the news. Might be a bad idea to give a single satellite an effective monopoly over the news that everybody consumes, but what do I know? It’s The Long Game, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on May 7, 2005.


Show-notes:


18:00.
20:45 Here’s what else Simon Pegg has been in if anyone cares.
26:44 The Reavers.
49:06 Walter Johnson’s chattel principle in his book (paper?) Soul by Soul. He didn’t come up with the term “chattel principle,” he just took it from some slave narrative from the 1800s I think, but he used it to define what he’s talking about in his book. Also I’m pretty sure Walter Johnson is a historian.
49:49 Harriet Jacobs’ Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl was the first (or at least one of the very first) slave narratives written by a woman.
