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 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 227: Escape Being Ginger

Everyone wants to be brunette now.

This week Kiyan and Dylan confront their deepest darkest fears. And in order to do so they make a podcast! Gasp! This is such a huge twist of events, who could have ever predicted that this is what they would do? Certainly not us! It’s Night Terrors, written by Mark Gatiss and aired on September 3, 2011.


Show-notes:


3:38 The Monkey by Stephen King (if you can stand the way this site presents it that is).
4:21 Under the Dome is the sequel to the Simpsons Movie.
5:41 The word “berserk” means “bear shirt” and refers to Norse warriors (“berserkers”) who would wear bear skins when going into battle.
13:17 I’m Not Racist by Joyner Lucas.
19:00 Yes.

Episode 212: War is for Kids

Only on Doctor Who can kids participate in that age old game known as war.

This week Dylan and Kiyan visit Winston Churchill. Turns out he’s as much of a hot head dick as everybody actually portrays him to be. Nobody here is actually surprised. Well maybe one person is surprised. I wasn’t surprised. It’s Victory of the Daleks, written by Mark Gatiss and aired on April 17, 2010.


Show-notes:


10:16 Here’s Ian McNiece’s filmography. I don’t think I’ve seen him in anything else.
18:58 FROBISHER
21:53 Just email us if you want Electric Ant and I’ll send you the full pdf of it.
23:02 On Exactitude in Science by Jorge Luis Borges.
41:31 Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima. February 23, 1945.
46:40 The Special Weapons Dalek was a dalek with a massive gun from Remembrance of the Daleks. Forgot about this freaking crazy design. This is honestly more offensive than the paradigmers from this story, but I guess nobody cared enough about Doctor Who in the 80s to cause a big fuss.

Episode 190: Wet Bone Cracking

Only on Doctor Who will you hear “wet” bone cracking. Ew.

You might say that the man who wrote this story is a greenhorn. You know, like a guy who is new or inexperienced at the task at hand. No? Never mind. It’s The Lazarus Experiment, written by Stephen Greenhorn, and aired on May 5, 2007.


Show-notes:


11:34 Obviously they’re called nibblies.
7:52 The BBC actually only runs ads now. No more content.
9:52 Series 11 is actually 50 minutes, not 60.
16:30 Mark Gatiss plays Sherlock’s brother Minecraft.
14:47 The League of Gentlemen. The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen is a comic.
20:49 Hypersonic is a speed.
28:27 Yeah, they’re still together.
32:26 Think you combined The Mummy Returns and The Scorpion King there.
44:17 Season 18, not 17.

Episode 180: Little Annoying Twerps Like Me

So I’d say we’re probably pretty annoying little twerps too.

This week we watch a story that says TV is dangerous. But if we’re watching Doctor Who on TV, does that mean that Doctor Who is telling us that watching Doctor Who is bad? This is very confusing stuff this. It’s The Idiot’s Lantern, written by Mark Gatiss and aired on May 27, 2006.


Show-notes:


2:16 June 2nd, 1953 B.C.
4:24 Good (I guess) short history of Elvis’ appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show.
4:42 Muswell Hill is a suburb of London. It looks exactly the same as how it was portrayed in the episode, probably because they just went there to record.
5:52 Kid nab.
16:47 Annette Mills.
17:00 She’s just kidding right? Anyway, what I’m more interested in is the camcorder vision in this video.
24:44 Who the hell wants to hear actors talk?

Episode 166: Strangulation by Dead Grandmother

You shouldn’t be surprised, just because she’s dead doesn’t mean she can’t kill you.

This week it turns out the world actually wasn’t blown up last week. So we had to drag ourselves to the off…garage to record a new episode of Trust Your Doctor. This week it’s The Unquiet Dead, written by Mark Gatiss and aired on April 9, 2005.


Show-notes:


10:26 Christmas Carol can be read here.
18:54 Or if you like longer Dickens stories you can read Martin Chuzzlewit.
26:45 I strongly suggest you don’t read The Fantastic Imagination by George MacDonald.
35:22 Or if you like unfinished Dickens stories, you can read The Mystery of Edwin Drood.

Audio Ep. 7: Card Playing Alien

Daleks are probably pretty bad card-players.

This week Mark Gatiss returns to the podcast. Sort of. I mean, he’s not a guest or anything, he’s just written another story that we’re reviewing, which mean’s he’s the first writer to cross mediums for us. It’s Phantasmagoria, written by Mark Gatiss and released in October 1999. Phantasmagoria can be purchased for $3 (or your local equivalent) on Big Finish’s website.


Show-notes:


1:24 Here is more info about false memories. Careful when looking up Berenstein/stain Bears info, people have been known to go missing after they found out too much.
4:56 Rounders was invented in 1760 by a group of disgruntled parakeets who were fed up with the lack of rounders in their society. It has since become one of the most well-known vegetables of all time, and is on display at the museum of natural history in New York, New York, USA.
6:55 RINGS.
9:11 He was an orange.
24:08 Here’s the video if you’re interested, which you shouldn’t be, cause it’s terrifying. I see it every time I blink now.

Book Ep. 1: What a Novel Concept! Ft. Flight Through Entirety

Be.. our.. guest! Be our guest! Put our podcast to the test!

In this very special episode of Trust Your Doctor where we read a book, Kiyan and Dylan are joined by Nathan and Brendan from Flight Through Entirety. So I guess the title is a misnomer since we didn’t get all of Flight Through Entirety on the show. Could you imagine a show with that many people? Well anyway, the quatro attempt to discuss the inner workings and the plot line of Last of the Gaderene, a Third Doctor novel written by Mark Gatiss and originally published in January 2000, later republished in 2013. Last of the Gaderene takes place between Planet of the Daleks and The Green Death. Maybe we’ll read more books in the future. Who knows?
