Episode 226: Fast and Furious: Leadworth Drift

Very fast and furious when you really think about it.

This week we try to stop one of the biggest tyrants in history and then promptly decide to dick around and not even do that. I mean, if you have the chance to change the entire course of human history, why would you? It’s Let’s Kill Hitler, written by Steven Moffat and aired on August 27, 2011.


Show-notes:


17:07 The Nuremberg trials started in 1945.
17:38 Meet Dave is movie about a bunch of people inside Eddie Murphy. I’ve never watched it, but I’m sure it’s even better than it sounds.
19:30They don’t look that similar to the Mister Handy line of robots from Fallout.
29:06 Check out Zenith, our Blake’s 7 podcast.

Episode 225: Stephen Moffat Hospital for Abduction

Everybody should know how to get to the hospital for abduction.

This week Kiyan and Dylan make it to the mid season finale, finally! The next half of the season is going to run much slower than this half,  mainly because it’s all one parters, so it’ll take us until Christmas to get through it. But hey, until then we get to enjoy this story, A Good Man Goes to War, written by Stephen Moffat and aired on June 4, 2011.


Show-notes:


1:45 Check out Zenith, our podcast where we watch and discuss Blake’s 7.
2:06 The Roast of Pip and Jane Baker
3:38 Battlestar Galactica and Life on Mars are two shows we don’t have podcasts about.
23:44 People probably fell in to the Thames during the 1814 frost fair. Here’s a better look at a print depicting some fools falling through cracks in the ice.
24:43 This is like the third time I have linked to this River Song timeline thing by Will Brooks and I have become exceedingly efficient at it.
26:00 Born of Man and Woman by Richard Matheson. Ignore the “commentary” on the site and just read the story.

Episode 221: Welcome to America

America, heck yea! Censored for unsafe eyes.

This week we finally officially properly start Series 6. Last week kind of counted because it was produced as part of the same thing, but this week is like, the actual thing you know? And! We get to go to America, that’s pretty cool right? It’s The Impossible Astronaut and Day of the Moon, written by Steven Moffat and aired on April 23 and 30, 2011.


Show-notes:


6:10 The 1981 version with really awkward music video.
11:05 Maybe we’ll cover Space 1999 once we finish our Blake’s 7 podcast, Zenith. Maybe.
17:52 Tuesday is a 1991 children’s picture book about werid crap happening on Tuesday.
26:55 Star Trek The Original Series ran from 8 September 1966 to 3 June 1969. Apollo 11 launched on 16 July, so Star Trek was already off the air.
29:51 The Haemovariform from Tooth & Claw was on Earth for a couple hundred years. That’s really the only one I can think of just skimming through the list of stories.
31:56 Here’s the Will Brooks River/Doctor timeline chart again. Gives me a headache just looking at it.
42:12 Here’s Tom Baker playing Rasputin in 1971.
52:14 David Frost’s interviews of Nixon are on Youtube.

Episode 213: Dart in the Dartboard of History

Really want to know how to play darts, honestly.

The angels are back. River Song is back. Stephen Moffat is already doing the “Greatest Hits of Stephen Moffat” and it’s first season and like fourth story. Good start. It’s The Time of Angels & Flesh and Stone, written by Stephen Moffat and aired on April 24, and May 1, 2010.


Show-notes:


2:50 We bring up most of the Alien movies here. Is Alien one of those franchises that should just be let go and left to rest in peace? Maybe.
10:18 Black box? More like wack box, cause these things aren’t box-y enough at all. Also known as a flight recorder I guess.
19:43 Jesus.
35:04 Look at the Special Weapons Dalek. Just look at it. And people were mad about the New Paradigm?

Episode 202: Books Suck

Unlike books, however, River is actually useful.

Every once in a while we deserve to take a digression, I think. A nice little trip down the yellow brick road so to speak. Of course, it just so happens that this digression is all of the episode, but you know, whatever! It’s Silence in the Library & Forest of the Dead, written by Steven Moffat and aired on May 31 and June 7, 2008.


Show-notes:

12:36 David Bowie had liver cancer.
32:51 St. Elsewhere is a medical tv series.
48:04 Lingthusiasm is a linguistics podcast.
49:35 The Night is Short, Walk on Girl is a Japanese animated movie.
1:00:44 The Dream-Quest of Vellitt Boe is a 2016 novella by Kij Johnson.
1:04:49 We have a Blake’s 7 podcast called Zenith. It’s alright I guess.
