Audio Ep. 5: Wolf Catapult ft. Flight Through Entirety

My cunning plan to win Eurovision is to bring a Wolf Catapult to my performance.

This week we’re joined by Brendan and Nathan for what is quite possibly the most inefficient (but surely the most interesting) summary of a Doctor Who story in existence. The four hosts proceed to spend about 2 hours explaining the 2 hour long story. It might just be quicker to read the wikipedia page for the story while listening to it. But that wouldn’t be as fun, now would it? We also spend upwards of 10 minutes just trying to end the episode. It’s Bang -Bang-a-Boom! written by Gareth Edwards and Clayton Hickman and released in December of 2002. Bang-Bang-a-Boom! can be purchased for $3 (or your local equivalent) on Big Finish’s website.


Show-notes:

10:56 The Mostly Made-up Doctor Who Episode Guide is still one of the best Doctor Who podcasts out there. Why don’t you, uh, go and, uh, take a listen to them? Uh? Right there. Go on. Do it.
7:56 And now with the magic of the internet you can listen to Lulu’s Boom Bang a Bang from Eurovision 1969 whenever you want. Relive the glory days with the power of modern technology. And get off my lawn. There’s not wifi on my lawn.
9:24 Something something something about rights, bla bla, where’s all the cool stuff like those holographic wolves?
13:33 Space:1999: for dummies: like us: cause we knew nothing about it: the wiki article: the animated series: the movie.
35:52 Here’s drwhoguide. Last updates 22-DEC-2013.
1:00:10 Don’t let your dreams be dreams. Follow them. Just like Shia did.
1:47:12 Flight Through Entirety. Also find them at all the other usual places like Facer, Twitbook, etc.

To make your job a bit easier, here’s some links to audios Brendan mentioned: The One DoctorLuna Romana, And the Pirates, The High Price of Parking (the first Mel&Ace one), The Dark Husband, The Wrong  Doctors, The Kingmaker, Red

Episode 113: Apparently Legendary

They say that she’s a myth around these parts.

This week Kiyan and Dylan reach into the 1980s for real. By which I mean, everything takes a turn for the synth. Yes, the title theme is synth, the visuals look totally 80s, and everything is in a new decade. It’s The Leisure Hive, written by David Fisher and aired in August and September of 1980.


Show-notes


00:55 We use a piece of the Peter Howell’s theme arrangement as our intro and outro. If you’d like to hear the full theme, it’s on YouTube here.
01:47 You can watch Sid Sutton’s title sequence for the 4th doctor on YouTube as well.
03:09 You can find Triple Play on this very website!
06:28 You can see the full image of Tom and Lalla that we used in the header here. In addition, here’s another promotional image for The Leisure Hive that better shows both of their costumes.
07:49 June Hudson has a rather comprehensive Wikipedia page. Her website contains a portfolio which includes her original concept drawing for Tom’s new costume.
08:30 Here is an image of Raymond Reddington. If you’re interested in the show (Dylan recommends it), you can get some more information on The Blacklist’s wikipedia page.

28:34 Tammany Hall was a corrupt political machine that basically ran most of New York in the early 20th century before losing influence when FDR got elected against their wishes. You can get a better overview at Wikipedia.

Episode 66: Deus Ex Master

The Deus Ex Machina of this serial is that it’s not the Master

Kiyan and Dylan, while agreeing the serial is good (although to a different degree), somehow like/dislike this serial in different measures. Find out why, as they explain The Mutants, written by Bob Baker and David Martin and aired in April and May of 1972.

Episode 51: We Should Definitely Sing Opera

I probably know someone who can sing opera.

Episode 34: Hey, Let’s Control the Weather!

How do so few people have so much power?

And what about that virus, and the coffee plate? The ending may have left a few questions, but nonetheless, Kiyan and Dylan discuss The Moonbase, featuring the return of the Cybermen! It was written by Kit Pedler, and it aired February and March of 1967.

And so closes the era of the first.

Episode 15: The Doctor in Edwardian Swim Gear

Kiyan and Dylan summarize some Timey-Wimey stuff.

This week Kiyan and Dylan watched The Space Museum, written by Glynn Jones and aired in April and May of 1965. Due to the confusing nature of time, they get very confused watching the serial and attempting to explain it.
