The Seventh Doctor Retrospective

And with that, it ends.

Trust Your Doctor would like to announce that we’re going on a 7 year hiatus. We’ll return with the TV Movie in April of 2024. Until then, we hope you enjoy this look back at the Seventh Doctor as well as the classic show as a whole.


Show-notes:


14:18 Mostly Made Up Doctor Who Episode Guide is one of the best Doctor Who podcasts out there.
22:21 “Dinner tonight’s going to be a national disaster” is the real quote. Best quote. Best character. Bring back the chef.
26:24 300 came out in the year 300. Jk it came out in 2006.
33:25 Apparently British colonization in Australia lasted from 1788 to 1901.

Special 5: The Three Year Anniversary!

We have anniversaries. Podcasts are built on anniversaries.

Yes three years in, and we’re still sitting in front of a microphone every single week just to talk about some nonsense inconsequential television show from fifty years ago. Here’s a look forward for you, we won’t catch up to where the show is right now (The Return of Doctor Mysterio) until 9/22/19. Yes, 2019. We’re here for a minimum of 3 more years. You’re welcome.


Show-notes:


00:45 Who made this stuff up?
1:20 You can listen to that too. Here.

You can find us at our regular places. Be sure to follow to be updated on our “The Trust Your Doctor Full Classic Retrospectivaganza” schedule. It starts on the 23rd of April, by the way, because we record stuff a week in advance. 🙂

The Sixth Doctor Retrospective

It feels like we just started this era yesterday.

The end of an era, truly. The Sixth Doctor was here for nearly 10 seasons. Wait, you’re telling me that in this universe he only had two seasons? How did you guys cope? So you didn’t get The March of the Valeyard?  Devastation of the Daleks?  The Damnation? I can’t believe it, this really is the darkest timeline. Well, here’s the Sixth Doctor retrospective anyway, featuring an additional discussion of Spiral Scratch. Spiral Scratch was written by Gary Russell and released on the 4th of August, 2005.


Show-notes:


17:20 “Other voice actors: Colin Baker”
21:08 Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency is a book by Douglas Adams. It’s kind of inspired by the Doctor Who serials he wrote, but I thought it was boring and also terrible.
31:08 It’s The Langoliers, which is from a larger collection by Stephen King.
48:24 Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo. Bamboo.

The Fifth Doctor Retrospective

In hindsight maybe not doing this with Krynoid was why this episode was all over the place.

Remember how the Fourth Doctor Retrospective was fun? This is… sort of fun? We take a look back at good old Peter Davison, and try to discuss his brief but fun era of Doctor Who.


Show-notes:


1:09 Which you can do here. Just saying. Not gonna force you to listen to it or anything. Mainly because I can’t. But you should listen to it.
9:25 Well maybe it needed to die.
28:54 Make it happen BBC.
32:53 Y’know. The cliffhanger-y one. The one where he’s gonna crash the ship. Hold on, I’m trying to find it. Hmm… where is it… Oh, here it is. Sorry about that. Yeah, I really liked this one. Even though it’s a quote unquote cool one.
37:31 The Life of Pie argument goes states that it’s more fun to eat pie than to do anything else in the world, so it urges people to stop what they’re doing at any time (and every time) to eat pie.
39:00 Yeah, it’s like a couple hundred thousand if you trust science as well. But I wouldn’t trust science if I were you cause last time I did I woke up in Anchorage wearing only socks and a sombrero.

Episode 130: Pimp My Carpet

My new carpet is purple and definitely not copyright infringing.

This week we once again learn why Dylan went into Physics and not English. It’s garment. Kiyan was right, Dylan was wrong. Dylan regrets his mistake, and apologizes to all the linguists who we have offended with our podcast. In other news, they try and talk about Terminus, written by Steve Gallagher and aired in February of 1983.


Show-notes:


3:43 Check out our other podcast, Trap Trip.

13:47 He later became one of the 28 competitors from Bahamas at the 2016 Rio Olympics.
14:13 They did.

Episode 125: Every Meme Has an Origin

Maybe one day Trust Your Doctor will be a meme.

He finally kicked the bucket. He took a dive. Got offed. Put on ice. You feel me? Yes it’s Earthshock, written by Eric Saward and aired in March of 1982.


Show-notes:


6:30 Apparently “Morphsuits” is a brand, which I guess makes it a generic trademark?
8:49 They also continue the trend of their costumes getting more and more cool. Seriously, I forgot how terrible they looked in Tenth Planet.
9:40 Don’t mind this blatant lie.
10:57 Yup.
20:20 Yeah, it does seem really bad.
22:55 What?
40:29 You heard it here first. Doctor Who stories have no plot.

Special 3: The Two Year Anniversary!

There’s been an awakening. Have you felt it? It’s in our sanity. As in, we’re losing it.

We know. Two Years. Some of you have been here for all two of them. Some of you weren’t. That’s ok, we love* you all. No but actually, thank you for listening. We really do appreciate that there are people who sit/stand/walk while listening to two random guys babble on about Doctor Who, or movie trilogies, or whatever we fancy really. We know this episode is a bit “thrown together” you might say, but it’s a nice representation of the years behind and ahead of us. Below I’ve dropped links to all the friends we’ve made this past year, as well as anything else of note. Here’s to another year of laughs!

*Love is subjective.

Flight Through Entirety
A wonderful group of guys from glorious Australia. Last year we discussed Last of the Gadarene with two of their hosts, Brendan and Nathan.

Episode 90: There’s a Lot of Hands in This Serial

Wow, a lot looks really weird in that title.

This week Kiyan and Dylan discuss hands. Like all sorts of hands. Human hands, Kastrian Hands, Sarah Jane’s Hands. Why Sarah Jane’s in particular? Because it’s her final serial, The Hand of Fear, written by Bob Baker and David Martin and aired in October of 1976.

Episode 83: Wiggle Wiggle Wiggle

And then like magic, it works! Guaranteed, every time.

This week Kiyan and Dylan return to their regularly scheduled host set-up with just the two of them attempting to explain a serial once again. This week the serial at hand is Terror of the Zygons, which was written by Robert Banks Stewart and aired in August and September of 1975. Harry Sullivan leaves in this episode, so there’s a retrospective at the end of the episode.

This was the base Dylan was referring to. Apparently it appeared in The Spy Who Loved Me, and not the one with the lotus (You Only Live Twice). The Bond Films all kind of blend together at some point.

Episode 77: The Brig is Azaxyr!

This revelation changed Monster of Peladon for me.

This week Kiyan and Dylan wrap up the Third Doctor’s era with the final serial of his era, Planet of the Spiders. This episode features the Trust Your Doctor exclusive Pertwee Retrospective, so stick around to the end to listen to Kiyan and Dylan discuss his era as a whole. Planet of the Spiders was written by Robert Sloman and aired in May and June of 1974.
