Episode 151: Bow Ties or No Ties

I’ll take cable ties thanks.

This week we return to your regularly scheduled programming. Which means Pip and Jane Baker are back writing for the show, stumbling through the darkness because no one knows how the hell to characterize the 7th Doctor yet. Thanks Eric Saward/JNT/Andrew Cartmel/Whoever you want to blame for this. It’s Time and the Rani, aired in September of 1987.


Show-notes:


5:36 Crispin Glover, who usually goes by his alter-ego “Really Distinctive Facial Structure Man,” sued some people over some stuff.
25:16 The “intense” sound effects at the end of this.

Episode 140: Renaissance Fair Gone Techno

Can you imagine techno renaissance music?

This week we finally not only finish season 21, but also start the 6th Doctor. Remember last week when we said we predicted the 6th Doctor era to be the most divisive? Well buckle up, it’s the Twin Dilemma, written by Anthony Steven and aired in March of 1984.


Show-notes:


4:28 There’s a secret message hidden in The Twin Dilemma
9:00 More information about the most important part of the serial.
14:01 Wow, I definitely see the resemblance. Actually just kidding, I don’t.
16:06 There’s speculation as to what’s up with the h, but personally I don’t care. I have more important things to care about. Like which side of the bed I’m going to wake up on tomorrow. Leaning towards the wrong one right now, but you never know.

Episode 120: Wheelchairs are Insanity!

I hope that when the wheelchairs take over they don’t find this.

This week Kiyan and Dylan bravely soldier forth without their leading man Tom Baker. There’s this weird scruffy blonde dude now, can’t quite remember his name. Pete probably. It’s Castrovalva, written by Christopher H. Bidmead and aired in January of 1982.


Show-notes:


0:50 You can take a road traveled by a lot of people by reading “The Road Not Taken” by Robert Frost. I dunno how many people “a lot” is. Probably like 6.
1:52 Find that here.
4:30 But in case YOU didn’t know, here’s this super-clickable, totally-not-a-trap link.
6:02 Doctorin’ the Tardis…?
13:57 Just like this podcast!
16:10 Just like this podcast!
17:12 It was Bob Baker who co-wrote The Wrong Trousers.
19:57 Jim Jones was a cult leader best known for convincing hundreds of people to drink poisoned Kool-Aid. Except it wasn’t actually Kool-Aid. It was Flavor Aid.
22:39 Contrary to popular belief, the Large Hadron Collider is actually a real-world particle accelerator and NOT a fictional machine on Doctor Who. The LHC is well known for assisting scientists with producing some of the most interesting scientific materials of our time, such as quark-gluon plasma, a possible Higgs boson particle, and the turkey sandwich I ate for lunch yesterday.
24:49 M.C. Escher was a guy with a staircase fetish. He was born in the Netherlands in 1898 and died rotting away in a Castrovalvan jail after being imprisoned for making the city impossible to navigate.

Episode 119: It’s More of a Mauve

Mauve is defined as a pale purple. Which means purple is still correct.

This week we come to the end of an era. Yes truly, Tom Baker has finally regenerated and Peter Davison has taken on the mantle of the Doctor. It’s Christopher Hamilton Bidmead’s Logopolis, aired in February and March of 1981.


Show-notes:


1:15 They did bring back the “Doctor Who” credit in the reboot. And then, this time at David Tennant’s request, they changed it back to “The Doctor” again.
4:51 Apparently Tegan comes from the Welsh word for “fair.” Can’t say I’ve ever heard it. And this Tegan was like the third result on Google when I googled it, so how common could it be?
18:38 It’s actually “Logopolitans.” Just to set the record straight.
24:57 Palpatine. Something tells me he wants Anakin to do “it.” But what could “it” possibly be? Surely not killing Christopher Lee…
28:48 My guess is that they’re going to brush it off with a single passing line next story!
33:18 It’s actually from Meglos.

Episode 53: It’s the Time Lords, Messing With Our Brains!
