264: Perpetuating Society (The Zygon Invasion & The Zygon Inversion)

Society needs to end.

Ok let’s take a moment to consider how weird it would be to have a Zygon procreate with a human. Does that create some sort of Zygon-human hybrid? And if they are can they shape shift, do they still have that ability? Or maybe they can’t but if they can’t then what differentiates them from regular humans? This is hurting my head. It’s The Zygon Invasion & The Zygon Inversion, written by Peter Harness & Steven Moffat and aired on October 31 and November 7, 2015.

263: Rube Goldberg Machine of Disaster (The Girl Who Died & The Woman Who Lived)

I’m pretty sure we’ve had a really similar title to this before.

I remember when this episode title was announced a lot of people were convinced that Amy was going to be in this. Because the title bore some superficial resemblance to the Girl Who Waited. Looking at it now that’s kind of a completely baffling assumption, but you know I see where it comes from. It’s The Girl Who Died & The Woman Who Lived, written by Jamie Mathieson, Steven Moffat and Catherine Tregenna and aired on October 17 and 24, 2015.


Show-notes:


2:47 Largest church in the world.
12:15 Our Blake’s 7 podcast is actually called Zenith. I wish we called it just “Blake’s 7.”
25:52 It might be jormungandr.
46:44 Check out Triple Play, our movie trilogy podcast.
49:45 Tell me the new Cats trailer isn’t terrifying.
1:01:01 My Immortal is still going strong 15 years later. (doc includes the full original story and expanded reading material)
1:03:06 The 2015 Jaden Smith face thing.

262: Your Mind on Memes (Under the Lake & Before the Flood)

I need one of those pictures that shows the faces of people on different drugs with one for memes.

I’m disconcerted by the pace at which we’re speeding through this season, if I’m being honest. It feels like my life is wizzing past my eyes as I die. It reminds me a lot of season 7, which we did in 4 weeks even though the season itself would have aired over something like 12. Or probably, more, if I’m being honestly I’m not actually sure how long it would have take because I can’t remember if they were airing two episodes a week or one at that point in the show’s history. It’s Under the Lake & Before the Flood, written by Toby Whithouse  and aired on October 3 and 10, 2015.


Show-notes:


4:40 Brendan from Flight Through Entirety gives his bottom 5 Doctor Who stories in this video.
6:23 The Rescue
14:30 Mark Gatiss wrote Night Terrors.
26:29 I googled bootstrap paradox for you.
33:03 You have 5 seconds to explain why you’re not following Ringo Starr on twitter.
35:15 Foie gras is a food made from force feeding geese or ducks. Balut is an almost-hatched egg eaten whole in the shell.
36:19 The Fisher King is from Arthurian legends.
46:05 Derrida’s scene from Ghost Dance
53:39 Karena (Rigsy’s aunt in Flatline) was actually a deaf character just last season.
58:00 Limited Inc by Derrida. From what I can tell, these are his ideas, not quotes or paraphrases from someone else. Also I was reading this from some notes I took when I read the book, so it’s not verbatim what Derrida wrote, but it’s on page 15 of the pdf I linked.
1:07:03 The events we talk about here are the Goldsboro crash and the Palomares crash.
1:07:55 AIR-2 Genie is an unguided nuke that the U.S. developed to be shot from planes.
1:08:04 The Davy Crockett was a portable nuclear missile launcher.

261: Good Old Pertwee Gunplay (The Magician’s Apprentice & The Witch’s Familiar)

Everything is a throwback, nothing is original.

What better time to completely revamp the format for the podcast than a moment in the show when absolutely nothing changed in the show? It makes total and complete sense to me, I’m actually not being facetious right now at all. Less things that the audience has to adjust to, you know? It’s The Magician’s Apprentice & The Witch’s Familiar, written by Steven Moffat and aired on September 19 and 26, 2015.


Show-notes:


4:51 Sonic screwdriver count. And death count. And character kill count. Due for an update like everything on our site.
6:10 The Morphos were from Keys of Marinus.
7:12 Footage of Getting Over It. Weird that the guy who made this is named Bennet like one of the characters in this episode. Also Frog Fractions should still be playable on this page if you have flash player I think.
31:10 Shannon Sullivan is pretty much the best site to find Doctor Who production info.
1:06:07 Apparently the First Doctor used his signet ring in The Reign of Terror to get some clothes.
1:19:37 The Third Doctor was season 7-11.

260: The Moffat Code (Last Christmas)

Now for the Trust Your Doctor Code. Five words: The Rock is The Doctor.

For once we can say we have a special “Christmas in July” episode of Trust Your Doctor. Because by some weird coincidence this goes out right near the end of July. Not quite on the 25th, or in the middle either, but it’s close enough. Is this the closest that Doctor Who has ever come to a Christmas in July? I’d like to think so and because of that I’m claiming the first for Trust Your Doctor. It’s Last Christmas, written by Steven Moffat and aired on December 25, 2014.


Show-notes:


8:59 I’M GONNA TAKE MY HEARSE TO THE OLD TOWN ROAD.
12:10 It was William Blake.
12:40 Here’s a Jungle Book fanfic that uses The Tyger as an epigraph. Next best thing.
15:25 Relive the magic of Troll 2 and Never Ending Story 3 vicariously through us on Triple Play, our movie trilogy podcast.
19:30 Things like “Jake Paulers.” (shudder)
19:54 Merry Xmas Everybody by Slade. Can’t believe I’m being forced to listen to Christmas music in July.
25:53 Started way before Freud.
31:25 Gallifreyan alphabet guide.
43:02 You can listen to The Memory Cheats from Big Finish. You can also listen to The Memory Cheats podcast from The Memory Cheats.
50:29 It’s been 84 years since I last got the opportunity to link to this meme.

259: The Interrogation of Danny Pink ft. JB Anderton (Dark Water & Death In Heaven)

Who interrogates soldiers? The Hague?

Danny Pink you’re charged with war crimes, killing innocents, and committing genocide post mortum. We would dishonorably discharge you, but you seem so hell bent on being a soldier that we thought a more fitting punishment would be to just do nothing to you. You’ll forever be a soldier. How’s that for hell? It’s Dark Water and Death in Heaven, written by Steven Moffat and aired on November 1 and 8, 2014.


Show-notes:


1:04 Check out JB’s podcast WHO 37.
1:23 42 to Doomsday is another Doctor Who podcast.
2:40 JB’s other podcast BAT 77.
10:32 JB’s original coverage of these episodes on WHO 37.
37:27 I can’t find the exact 2 seconds of footage where the Wachowskis talk about liking Doctor Who, but it’s linked somewhere in the show notes of our Matrix episode of Triple Play, our movie trilogy podcast.
39:16 The Audio Visuals were produced in the 80s and 90s and were unlicensed.
1:13:32 Blast em.
1:21:00 Paul Cornell did it first in Love and War. Also Big Finish made an audio version of it.

258: Don’t Use Nukes to Kill Cockroaches (In the Forest of the Night)

I think cockroaches are susceptible to pretty much any other form of death though.

Do cockroaches actually live in forests? I was just thinking now, since London is a forest now, does that mean all the cockroaches are dead? Or did they just decide “hey what the hell let’s throw a party, the world just became 100% more habitable for us last night!” Stay tuned… It’s In the Forest of the Night, written by Frank Cottrell Boyce and aired on October 25, 2014.


Show-notes:


2:45 Check out WHO 37 if you haven’t already.
29:58 KNOWING trailer.

257: The Nice Ogron (Flatline)

Have you ever met a kind hearted Ogron?

I’m imagining this as a sort of kids story in the Doctor Who universe for Time Lord children. They sit down because the Ogrons are some sort of myth, and then there’s a very nice Ogron who breaks away from society to be better than everyone else. I’m tearing up just at the thought of it. It’s Flatline, written by Jamie Mathieson and aired on October 18, 2014.


Show-notes:


1:49 Check out Zenith, our Blake’s 7 podcast.
16:09 Wikipedia has a pretty good summary of the differns MIs I guess.
16:52 London Has Fallen is a 2016 movie.
19:08 The Yellow Wallpaper, A Perfect Day for Bananafish The Telltale Heart, The Rats in the Walls
24:54 BBC article about aphantasia

256: Teletubbies is Actually Really Interesting (Mummy on the Orient Express)

Now hang on hear me out on this…

Did you know the office where we record these episodes is right next to a train track? We usually luck out, it’s pretty rare that a train will pass while we record. It was more common when we recorded Zenith and TYD back to back, but it’s pretty rare now. Which I only mention because if there was ever a single episode, one single episode, that would have been pretty funny if the train actually did drive by on, it would have been this one. And you know, weirdly enough, it didn’t. It’s Mummy on the Orient Express, written by Jamie Mathieson and aired on October 11, 2014


Show-notes:


9:39 I couldn’t find the picture I was talking about, but I did find this other picture of Thomas Pynchon’s hand coming out of the darkness and doing the peace sign. In what looks like a reenactment of A Shocking Accident by Graham Green. Or maybe it’s a scene out of a Pynchon book. Or something else. I don’t know.
15:28 I still can’t find out who this guy is, what else he’s been in, his name, or anything else about him. Please help.
30:46 Check out Zenith, our Blake’s 7 podcast.

255: We Can’t Just Ignore the Nukes (Kill the Moon)

I’m kind of surprised the US only sent up 100 nukes. That’s like 0.0001% of their arsenal.

In the continuing saga of “What the hell even is British English” I’ve gone and found out that a caretaker actually is a janitor. In fact, the dictionary explicitly lists “janitor” as a synonym for “caretaker.” Although I will refrain from mentioning what dictionary I used, for fear of drawing ire from the few english majors who listen. It’s Kill the Moon, written by Peter Harness and aired on October 4, 2014


Show-notes:


29:26 The San Andreas is a fault is a transform fault in California. When people talk about “the big one” happening in California, they’re talking about how the San Andreas is inevitably going to destroy everything beyond recognition and kill thousands if not millions.
46:55 Alternate reality games
