Audio Ep. 9: Eat Light and Die

So this is what it has come to, the eaters of light have to die.

This week we decided to walk across a nice little moor in Scotland. We watched as someone just out of view got struck by lightning. It was really weird, there weren’t even clouds in the sky. We ran over and told us a story, the story of Helicon Prime, relayed to him by Jake Elliott. Apparently the story was first told in November of 2007. Helicon Prime can be purchased for $8 (or your local equivalent) on Big Finish’s website.

Episode 160: Soupified

Stupefy!

Halfway through the final season wow. This week we’re back with possibly the most confusing story ever broadcast in the history of television. I promise. It’s Ghost Light, written by Marc Platt, aired October of 1989.


Show-notes:


5:07 Yeah, apparently they used a real house just for the exterior and apparently the observatory was added in post production.
13:37 Well searching “round mini shades” only brought up pictures of lampshades and searching “round mini glasses” brought up pictures of drinking glasses. My google fu is weak. Oh well.
17:35 There were a bunch of guys who researched these moths, but one of the first was someone named JW Tutt. Here’s a random journal article about him. The J didn’t stand for Josiah by the way.
21:19 Meh. Too lazy to read all of this. So maybe. You tell me.
24:04 It’s actually a big slug thing from Star Wars. Oh, sorry that’s Jabba. Java is an island in Indonesia.
