Episode 235: Daemons versus Silents

The showdown of the century!

This town aint big enough for more than one podcast. And we all know which podcast that is. That’s right. It’s Triple Play. Not enough space around here for Triple Play as well as Trust Your Doctor, and since Triple Play is obviously the better podcast we’re shutting this one down. Just kidding. I think. It’s A Town Called Mercy, written by Toby Whithouse and aired on September 15, 2012.

Episode 229: If We Stop the Podcast, We Die

At least we only have to do this for the rest of our lives.

Look. I run this podcast. I edit it. I maintain the website. Basically what I’m saying is that it’s my podcast. No one else’s. Am I doing this God Complex thing right? I actually don’t think I am now that I think about it. Close enough. I’ll have to look at Steven Moffat for more examples I guess. It’s The God Complex, written by Toby Whithouse and aired on September 17, 2011.


Show-notes:


1:27 Tension and release is a pretty big tenet of comedy in general and has a history of theory behind it. This article puts at least some if it in perspective.

2:15 Can’t believe there are already 13th Doctor books.

25:42 Check out our Blake’s 7 podcast Zenith.

Episode 215: Very Creative Deaths

They weren’t important anyway.

Weirdly enough, as I’m writing this, I just woke up from a dream about Blake’s 7. Which is weird because I’ve never dreamt about Doctor Who even though I’ve been watching it forever. Really disconcerting actually. Weird. It’s Amy’s Choice, written by Toby Whithouse and aired on May 15, 2010.


Show-notes:


4:02 Sophie’s Choice is a 1979 book by William Stryton.
6:03 Probably The Confessions of Nat Turner.
9:07 The Valeyard was supposedly from between the Doctor’s twelfth and final incarnation. The novelization says that he’s somewhere between the twelfth and thirteenth incarnation. I guess all of this isn’t true anymore or just not considered in the modern show.
12:29 Stetson is a hat brand with a really interesting history.
14:42 We discussed bottle episodes when we discussed Sarcophagus on Zenith, our Blake’s 7 podcast.
20:57 Gee I wonder why this flopped.

Episode 214: Broom is Doomed

And so the age of brooms is over. I for one welcome our new mop overlords.

Well, this week we sparkle. Not that you can really tell, because it’s an audio podcast and not a video podcast, but just trust me, we are. We have the blinds open and the sun is streaming in and we’re just dying while we record. It’s The Vampires of Venice, written by Toby Whithouse and aired on May 8, 2010.


Show-notes:


7:15 This could have been an interesting thread about the differences between a stag party and a bachelor party until some no-fun-allowed nerds decided to close it for being off topic.
11:38 Check out Zebra, the world’s number like 3 or 4 Blake’s 7 podcast.
12:45 According to New World Encyclopedia, the population of Venice was around 124,000 in 1581.
24:48 Arachne I guess? But it looks like she more gets transformed into a spider.
29:35 Rosanna or Roseanne? Who rosanned better?
35:29 Toby Jones was the really famous British actor who plays the villain in Amy’s Choice.
