Episode 7: Agatha Christie in Space

I think I might have used this as a title before…

I think Terry Nation is out of ideas. Just flat out, like, I’m sure he just kind of read the back of his orange juice in the morning and tore the label off to give to Chris Boucher. It’s Mission to Destiny, written by Terry Nation, and aired on February 13, 1978.


Show-notes:


1:33 I wonder how bad this 2017 version is. Then again I wonder how bad the original is.
3:04 Guerrilla I guess. Not exactly but oh well.
11:52 It’s his last name. His first name is Olag, which I would make me think twice, double take, and spit out my drink.
13:18 Children of the Stones has Gareth Thomas playing a geologist who moves to a rural village when weird things start happening. It;s pretty good and only 7 episodes, so just watch it. Try this version edited together into a 2 and half hour movie, cause the original series feels like a chopped up movie anyway.
33:41 Not that I can find. Perfect opportunity for anyone who wants to break into the adding laugh tracks to shows without laugh tracks field.
34:08 Fresh Off the Boat is an example of a garbage American sitcom. Surprisingly based off of a book.
34:17 Oh god.

Episode 6: Medieval Chic

Here rests medieval fashion, taken from us too soon.

We’ve caught up to Kiyan’s prescreening of Blake’s 7. Basically he watched up to this point before we even started the show, because… well… actually I don’t really know. Why not? It’s Seek, Locate, Destroy, written by Terry Nation and aired on February 6, 1978.


Show-notes:


1:33 Just looked this up and realized it stars Havok from X-men.
2:55 Check out Down and Safe podcast. Don’t really know anything about them since I’ve only listened to like 20 minutes of them in total. They are taking forever to watch the show thought.

Episode 5: I Don’t Want to Know Anything

That’s the truth really, just take all my knowledge away thanks.

We’ve returned to Blake’s 7 again because I think this is actually a thing we’re doing. Basically no going back now, Episode 5 is the point of no return. Before then you can just bail but now we can’t go back. No choice. It’s The Web, written by Terry Nation and aired on January 30, 1978.


Show-notes:


0:33 Michael E. Briant directed The Sea Devils, The Green Death, and Robots of Death among other things. Also worked on Colony in Space, a story that I completely forgot existed. And I still can’t remember anything about it now that I’m reminded of its existence.
2:43 Making Blake’s 7 is a really informative Twitter account, but I just hate how smug they are about everything and how they post stuff like “Want more rare pics of the Liberator? Then make sure this tweet gets a hundred likes, retweet it a billion times, tell all your friends, then wire me $600,000 dollars, thx” Complete B.S.
17:10 Not even Lin Shaye could save Insidious: The Last Key. I don’t think it was as bad as most people are saying, but it still sucked.
17:14 We do this other thing and stuff.
40:50 Triple Play and Trust Your Doctor.

Episode 2: Poking the Right Wires

Every wire has a story.

This week we’re here to prove that this podcast wasn’t a joke or anything, we’re actually going to watch Blake’s 7. Surprise, if you didn’t actually believe us. I don’t blame you, it was totally out of left field. It’s Space Fall, written by Terry Nation, and aired on January 9, 1978.


Show-notes:


4:30 Here’s the scene if you want to watch it. I guess this was a deleted scene, but I think they might have edited back into the movie when they made those dvd re-releases or whatever, cause I remember it being in the movie.
21:44 That transformation animation.
33:27 Be Kind Rewind. Kind of dumb how it gets all sad at the end with all the characters mourning the death of VHS.
42:03 Death count coming “soon.”
43:48 Looks pretty interesting actually. No wonder it got canceled.
49:26 40th anniversary Big Finish audio out now (and it’s actually The Way Ahead, my bad).

Episode 1: Really Well Planned Rebellion

Every rebellion needs a plan that will immediately fall apart.

It’s the start of a brand new era in podcasting, and a brand new era in television.  It all started with “hey we should do Blake’s 7” and look here we are. Episode 1. Unsurprisingly it seems impossible to talk about Blake’s 7 without mentioning Doctor Who. Well, at least we started. It’s The Way Back, written by Terry Nation, and aired on January 2, 1978.


Show-notes:


1:22 Check out Triple Play, a monthly podcast we do about movie trilogies.
1:29 Episode 0 of Zenith explains what this podcast is “better” than this episode does.
8:21 Basically the best thing Dudley Simpson ever made.
27:05 Coming “soon.” Meanwhile, here’s a continually updates feed of all Zenith episodes.

Episode 107: Do You Dream of Davros?

Does Davros count Daleks to fall asleep?

This week’s episode is brought to you by the color pink. And by pink, I mean PINK, because that frock that Romana wears is straight up bright pink. It contrasts nicely with the cold grey of the Dalek casings. Yes, this week it’s Destiny of the Daleks, written by Terry Nation and aired in September of 1979.

And don’t forget to check out Flight Through Entirety ahead of our crossover which goes out this coming Wednesday.

Episode 86: Hotel Doctor Who

So I called up the Doctor. “Please bring me my time.”

He said “I couldn’t get there since 1969.”
And still Sarah is calling from far away.
Wake you up in the middle of the fight,
Just to hear her say…

Help me fight this Android Invasion!
By Terry Nation (By Terry Nation)
The Terry Nation.
Aired in the year Nineteen – Seventy Five
In Late November (In Late November)
Early December.

In case you missed it, this week Kiyan and Dylan discussed The Android Invasion, aired in November and December of 1975 and written by Terry Nation.

Episode 81: On Screen On Screen

Son Screen’s sun screen is on screen sun screen.

This week Kiyan and Dylan explore one of the juggernauts of classic Doctor Who (See what I did there? The Juggernauts is an audio drama featuring Davros, the Daleks, and the Mechonoids [from The Chase]). If the previous sentence didn’t give it away, this week the topic at hand is Genesis of the Daleks, which was written by Terry Nation and aired in March and April in 1975. It famously introduces the character of Davros, creator of the Daleks.

For the curious: Spare Parts, The First Sontarans, Lords of the Red Planet

Episode 75: The Dalek Syndrome

Syndrome was a pretty good villain. Oh wait we’re talking Daleks.

This week Kiyan and Dylan begin the end of the beginning eras of Doctor Who. If that makes sense. Well basically they’re coming to the end of the Third Doctor’s era, and it’s pretty clearly running down. Terrance Dicks, Barry Letts, and Jon Pertwee have all decided by this time to leave the show at the end of the season. The serial that has apparently so blatantly signposted this end of an era is Death to the Daleks, written by Terry Nation and aired in February and March of 1974.

Episode 71: Falling Rocks Hair Gel

Goes great with the Hard Rock Cafe!

The topic of discussion this week is Planet of the Daleks. Kiyan and Dylan were… not impressed with it as a resolution to Frontier In Space. But no matter, they still had a good time explaining it. Planet of the Daleks was written by Terry Nation and it aired in April and May of 1973.
