Episode 159: Deceased Mule Inn

This week’s episode is brought to you by death.

It’s the final season. (To the tune of final countdown). Can you believe it? Well we’re almost at our crazy dark years plan and it’s going to be great, I promise. Until then, it’s Battlefield, written by Ben Aaronovitch and aired in September of 1989.


Show-notes:


6:41 Apparently the silver bullets killing werewolves idea got its start thanks to this jerk dog that ate some people in France.
22:11 You mean this one? Looks actually terrible, so no thanks.
24:03 They made him up.

Episode 129: Surely You Remember Liz Shaw

Liz Shaw was truly the most memorable UNIT member.

This week’s throwback to earlier serials comes in the form of The Brigadier Allistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart. The one and only, taking over for Ian. Yes, apparently the Brig can teach math? It’s Mawdryn Undead written by Peter Grimwade and aired in February of 1983.


Show-notes:


5:47 He uninstalled the randomizer randomiser at the beginning of season 18 in The Leisure Hive.
8:50 Thing.
16:27 This list is where the idea comes from. Wonder if anyone’s ever gotten all the way to 90.
20:26 Just like Cool Whip!
33:20 Batman gambit. Don’t ask why I know that. Do ask why I don’t know that.

Episode 74: That’s Making Life Take the Lemons Back

And then it’s making life not exist anymore!

This week Kiyan and Dylan dive into Malcolm Hulke’s final serial, Invasion of the Dinosaurs. To their pleasant surprise, this weeks serial featured quite a fair bit of character development for the UNIT crew, with Benton, Yates, and The Brig all getting some time in the spotlight. Invasion of the Dinosaurs was aired in January and February of 1974.

By the way, the reference no one would get was to Shrek the Musical. You’re welcome.

Don’t mind me, just gonna prop open the door so Jo can come back.

Book Ep. 1: What a Novel Concept! Ft. Flight Through Entirety

Be.. our.. guest! Be our guest! Put our podcast to the test!

In this very special episode of Trust Your Doctor where we read a book, Kiyan and Dylan are joined by Nathan and Brendan from Flight Through Entirety. So I guess the title is a misnomer since we didn’t get all of Flight Through Entirety on the show. Could you imagine a show with that many people? Well anyway, the quatro attempt to discuss the inner workings and the plot line of Last of the Gaderene, a Third Doctor novel written by Mark Gatiss and originally published in January 2000, later republished in 2013. Last of the Gaderene takes place between Planet of the Daleks and The Green Death. Maybe we’ll read more books in the future. Who knows?

Episode 68: The Mark Hamill Level “No”

No, Susan, I am your grandfather! NOOOOOOO!

This week Kiyan and Dylan are visited by some very special people… And they’re late, to boot. It’s very weird, but at least it’s somehow related to The Three Doctors, which featured the return of Patrick Troughton and William Hartnell to the role of the Doctor. The serial was written by Bob Baker and David Martin, and it aired from the 30th of December, 1972 through the 20th of January, 1973 as a 10th anniversary special.

Episode 67: Matador for the Minotaur

Interesting that dor and taur sound similar but are spelled differently.

This week Kiyan and Dylan work towards a new more witty episode…. No totally kidding, they just watched a witty serial. Said witty serial happened to be The Time Monster, written by Robert Sloman (with uncredited additions by Barry Letts), which aired in May and June of 1972.
