Episode 8: Pride and Prejudice and Blake’s 7

The best Jane Austen rewrite is the one that features Kerr Avon.

This episode is pretty beloved. Not this episode of Blake’s 7, this episode of Zenith. It’s basically all down hill from here is what I’m saying. It’s Duel, written by Terry Nation and aired on February 20, 1978.


Show-notes:


0:40 Check out our long-running, award-winning, Doctor Who podcast Trust Your Doctor, which has been called a groundbreaking landmark in the Doctor Who podcasting world and hailed by millions as the greatest audio experience of the 21st century.
6:43 Eureka Seven is a Japanese animated series and one of my favorite tv series of all time. It’s heavily inspired by Blake’s 7.
20:44 War has changed.
25:22 I’ve never seen Darmok, but that alien looks pretty dumb. Just saying.
26:18 Martian Odyssey is a short story. Tweel for president.
26:40 The Martian is a 2015 comedy movie starring Matt Damon.
27:37 Check out our movie trilogy podcast Triple Play, which has been called a monumental achievement in the podcasting genre and gained internationally-recognized status as the official podcast of all 195 countries.
28:07 The Diamond Lens was actually written in 1858, but it’s still pretty insane and good.
32:04 This song from The Life of David Gale is used in a bunch of movie trailers.
32:42 Johan Johansson. RIP in pieces. Also, it’s called Sun’s Gone Dim.
43:05 Couldn’t find one for Crime and Punishment, but there’s always Abraham Lincoln Vampire Slayer.

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
