Episode 35: All the Cool Kids Have Green Eyes Ft. Argy

Scientific fact that green eyes are cool.

Argy is legitimately the first female guest we’ve had on every single podcast we’ve ever done. That is… quite an achievement, perhaps, but at the same time… I don’t know where this is going honestly. It’s Sarcophagus, written by Tanith Lee and aired on March 3, 1980.


Show-notes:


3:23 It was The Leisure Hive.
22:36 There are a bunch of configurations of complementary colors, but green and orange usually aren’t complementary. Here are some examples.
47:58 We keep mentioning Making Blake’s 7, which is a twitter account that has a ton of behind-the-scenes info and pictures that have never been seen before. John, the guy who runs it, was also on our Harvest of Kairos episode.
1:24:31 This Blue Peter “make” from 1978 tell you how to make a teleport bracelet. The presenter is Lesley Judd.
1:30:14 Josette Simon has had plenty of recent roles in both movies and tv shows.

Episode 23: Unlimited Travis

Kind of like unlimited Gan but way more dangerous and unhinged.

This week somebody other than Christ Boucher or Terry Nation titled the script, because it’s got like 4 words. Thats 3 words more than the average on this show, so let’s give Blake’s 7 a big round of applause. It’s Voice from the Past, written by Roger Parkes, and aired on March 13, 1979.


Show-notes:


0:57 Making Blake’s 7 is a Twitter account about the making of Blake’s 7.
1:24 Flight Through Entirety is a Doctor Who podcast. They recorded Eric Saward’s scrapped ending for Trial of a Time Lord about a year ago.
6:12 Dark Star. It actually came out in 1974 and was made by USC students.
7:00 Portal is a video game.
8:00 Check out our Doctor Who podcast Trust Your Doctor for “riveting” Doctor Who discussion that sets a new standard for Doctor Who podcasts.
9:03 Tay was Microsoft’s racist Twitter bot.
10:27 Roko’s Basilisk.
20:55 Biofeedback.
35:57 Foundation is a book series by Isaac Asimov.
38:45 Blinky Bill is apparently an Australian classic kids’ book. I’ve been watching the 90s cartoon version lately.
47:40 Here’s the site. Lot of other cool Blake’s 7 stuff on here too. I’m gonna check this out more in depth when I get the chance.
59:42 The Old Doctor Who Show is another Doctor Who podcast. They also make a bunch of gifs from classic DW episodes and post them on Twitter.

Episode 198: You Ood What You Gotta Ood

More ood, more problems.

This week we visit the Sense Sphere again. Well. Sort of. We kind of come close, like the same solar system so that’s pretty close in my mind. And the Ood come back, which I guess means the Sensorites and the Ood are related somehow? It’s Planet of the Ood, written by Keith Temple and aired on April 19, 2008.


Show-notes:


0:28 Back at it again with the 3 year old memes.

Episode 148: Why are we Supposed to Care Again?

Peri’s supposedly dead and we don’t care. Kind of like Crozier when Yiv started dying.

The greatest Doctor Who writer ever returns. Philip Martin. Why is he the greatest? Well he created Sil, the best villain we’ve ever had. The Ferengi slash Slug hybrid is the most conniving and genius person who’s ever faced off against the Doctor. It’s Mindwarp, aired in October of 1986.


Show-notes:


5:07 It’s actually six species. I guess. I wouldn’t know since I’ve never watched Start Wreck. I mean Star Trek.
10:11 Hmmm… I think I do.
14:41 Please let this be true.
15:21 Luckily they didn’t go down that route. And I’m sure they wouldn’t pull something like retconning it into happening in a later serial, right? Ha ha.
23:42 Definitely don’t not check out our other podcast, Treble Plane. Though the X-Men episode we talk about here doesn’t come out until like March.
32:33 What most people don’t know is that the theme building at LAX was actually converted from a crashed alien spacecraft back in the 60s. No wonder it looks so futuristic and out of place.
32:55 3 seconds of Google brought me to this list of iconic buildings. Yeah some of these are pretty cool. Probably pretty famous too. Not sure if they’re top-3-worthy though.

Episode 48: Revive the Russians!

Revive Russia would be a good band name. Dibs!

Episode 47: What if Internet Explorer is a Cover?

I knew it! Microsoft is behind everything!

This week Kiyan and Dylan watched only the first 4 episodes of The Invasion. They did this because that although they claim they have a TARDIS, they actually do not, and therefore have a limited amount of time during the week to watch episodes. The Invasion was written by Peter Bryant and the first 4 episodes aired in November of 1968. Like the Moonbase and The Wheel in Space, it was based on an idea by Kit Pedler.

That’s no moon…

This week Kiyan and Dylan wrap up season 5 with The Wheel in Space, featuring the return of the Cybermen, again! It was written by David Whitaker, based on an idea by Kit Pedler, and it aired in April-June of 1968.
