River Song

246: Do Androids Dream of Electric Peeps? (The Name of the Doctor)

I’m pretty sure electric peeps would suck even worse than normal peeps.

You know, we kind of have experience with dealing with something we like to pretend doesn’t exist. It’s called Trust Your Doctor, Episode 1. We even rerecorded it like 5 years later, and then literally replaced it in the podcast feed so no one would see the original version. Kind of like our version of the War Doctor. Except you can still totally find episode 1. As if I’d tell you where though. It’s Name of the Doctor, written by Steven Moffat and aired on May 18, 2013.


Show-notes:


18:20 According to Paul’s Unofficial Letterbox Pages, “Most houses in Britain have a letter box in the front door, usually a simple slot with a flap over it, through which the post is delivered each morning.” No mention of personal mailboxes outside people’s houses like you see in the states.
21:25 And thus the essence of all crime is undivulged.
20:19 I think the only thing I’ve linked to more than this River Song timeline is the asteroid/meteor/meteorite differences table thing from nasa.
25:08 Arrival is a movie about alien linguistics.
33:49 Some of the best J.K. Rowling tweets.
55:02 Check out our Blake’s 7 podcast, Zenith.

231: The Roast of Steven Moffat (The Wedding of River Song)

Look out Steven, we’re coming for you.

You’ll never believe what happened to us while we were recording this episode. Dylan received a phone call from someone desperately trying to stop us recording. Turns out, our podcast recording last week was a fixed point in time, and the attempt to stop us recording caused the entirety of the space time continuum to fall apart. We put it back together, so you wouldn’t have noticed anything except now it seems the sky is a weird shade of blue. We’re sorry about that, it seems we weren’t quite able to get it back to it’s original yellow. It’s The Wedding of River Song, written by Steven Moffat and aired on October 1, 2011.


Show-notes:


5:40 Parts of the Millennium Bridge is made out of aluminum
6:40 It was this thing.
8:57 The Rats in the Walls is a story by H.P. Lovecraft. Also I did bad job describing it here, so just read it.
35:15 Tobias Vaughn

226: Fast and Furious: Leadworth Drift (Let’s Kill Hitler)

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.

225: Stephen Moffat Hospital for Abduction (A Good Man Goes to War)

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.

221: Welcome to America (The Impossible Astronaut & Day of the Moon)

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.

213: Dart in the Dartboard of History (The Time of Angels & Flesh and Stone)

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?

202: Books Suck (Silence in the Library & Forest of the Dead)

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.
