Episode 251: The Medieval Times Version of Robin Hood

All gather around as Sir Robin shoots this Apple off my head.

We use an Apple laptop to record this podcast, did you know that? Other podcast have fancy desktop systems, but what we lack in CPU power we gain in portability. We could literally record anywhere. In fact we’ve had semiserious discussions about recording this podcast in a car. Like an actual moving motor vehicle. Stay tuned. It’s Robot of Sherwood, written by Mark Gatiss and aired on September 6, 2014.


Show-notes:


10:47 Medieval Times is a a dinner theater type thing based on the medieval era. There are actually 10 different locations across the U.S. and Canada.
16:21 The Drashigs may not be in Sherwood Forest, but they are here. Big Finish being the heroes we need yet again.
17:25 Check out our Blake’s 7 podcast, Zenith.
19:30 Apparently this kid and others have done it with modern bows and arrows.
24:55 Patrick Troughton played Robin Hood in the 1953 BBC Robin Hood live broadcasts.
30:47 Blast em.
31:27 Apparently the droidekas were designed and produced by the Colicoids, which explains their buglike nature.
33:15 This Aladdin trailer. In theaters soon.
39:13 Dumb kid.

Episode 250: The Earth is Flat

It is.

We need to look inside ourself this week. Like deep inside, to the parts ourselves that we never show to the light. Where the cobwebs are. Where my little spider friend Steve lives, killing any flies that make their way in. Hey Steve, hope you’ve been having a good time in there. Nice cobwebs! It’s Into the Dalek, written by Steven Moffat and Phil Ford and aired on August 30, 2014.


Show-notes:


3:54 According to the Doctor Who Podcast alliance, our total runtime is 16 days, 12 hours, 50 minutes, 42 seconds.
6:41 I meant Evil of the Daleks . The Doctor actually names the Daleks Alpha, Beta, and Omega in this one.
17:25 Check out Zenith, our Blake’s 7 podcast.
21:35 Apparently World of Goo is a video game from like 10 years ago.
31:59 It’s actually only like 10 years old.
41:09 Check out Triple Play, our movie trilogy podcast.

Episode 249: Step Up Your Sarcasm Game

The fourth sequel to the Step Up series.

I was really hoping that this would be episode 250 but none of the numbering worked out for it to be so. I guess episode 250 is just awkwardly going to be the second episode of this season, which would probably bother some people but I’m pretty unconcerned. I’m bummer, to be sure, but nothing more than that. It’s Deep Breath, written by Steven Moffat and aired on August 23, 2014.


Show-notes:


1:49 http://www.shannonsullivan.com/doctorwho/ has tons of production info about classic and modern Doctor Who.
3:04 Video comparison of Billy Henshaw’s original title sequence and the one they used for the 12th Doctor (also created by Billy Henshaw).
4:57 I’m talking about the Thirteenth Doctor’s intro.
10:14 I’m putting an end to this once and for all. It’s 30 St Mary Axe a.k.a. the Swiss Re building, a.k.a. The Gherkin.
12:11 Check out our Blake’s 7 podcast, Zenith.
22:02 Wow, apparently people knew about cancer like 3000 years ago. And according to the same wikipedia article, the name “cancer” comes from how tumors kind of looked like crabs to the ancient Greeks.
28:14 I looked up widower on Urban Dictionary for you, but it wasn’t really funny or interesting at all. So here’s the definition for pineapple.
44:23 It was @NotTodayThanks3 on Twitter. Also you all should check out Space Fall: A Blake’s 7 podcast for their insightful discussion of the show.

The Eleventh Doctor Retrospective

Well bloody hell I have nothing witty to say about 11.

I really genuinely thought that for a while Deep Breath would be Episode 250 of the podcast. Of course, I had forgotten at the time that we don’t number retrospectives, and hence this episode wasn’t going to be Episode 249. Which means that Episode 250 won’t actually fall on any sort of important episode, but is instead going to fall on the random Into the Dalek episode. Honestly really bummed about that but I can’t do anything about it at this point.


Show-notes:


9:04 It wasn’t Neil Cross. I actually can’t remember/find who it was who wrote a Doctor Who episodes never having watched an episode. Like we mentioned, Pip and Jane Baker for sure. Also probably most of the writers for season 1 like Terry Nation.
17:55 It’s called trainwrecking.
19:45 Check out our Blake’s 7 podcast, Zenith.
43:21 The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot
48:38 The Chameleons. Kamelion and the Chameleons spinoff when?

Episode 248: Doctor Chibnall

Doctor Who has an illness and Doctor Chibnall is here to solve it.

And so the clock has run out. Like just totally. It’s not 11, it’s not 12, it’s just dead. Hands fell off. and nobody knows how to make clocks anymore since we all use digital clocks so I haven’t really been able to get it fixed. Bit of a bummer, you know that saying that a broken clock is right twice a day? Well turns out that only applies if your clock actually has hands. It’s The Time of the Doctor, written by Steven Moffat and aired on December 25, 2013.


Show-notes:


8:40 Still in production.
11:20 The Five(ish) Doctors is a short docu-mockumentary that follows Peter Davison, Sylvester McCoy, and Colin Baker trying to be part of the 50th anniversary episodes.
20:27 Here’s the video I was referring to, “How Chibnall Killed Doctor Who.” I haven’t watched it though. I just keep seeing it on youtube and it probably has such good SEO cause of the clickbait title.
1:05:00 Complete Menagerie and Reality Bomb are two other Doctor Who Podcasts.
1:13:14 The episode is called Nightmare at 20,000 feet.
1:13:39 Goosebumps is a horror book series for kids. And yes, the movies have Jack Black in them.

Episode 247: It’ll Never Get That Bad Again

We’re out of it now.

This week Kiyan and Dylan finally put the first 50 years of the podcast to rest. I mean the first 50 years of Doctor Who. Same thing in the end, really, when you think about it. The podcast has existed as long as the show has, didn’t you know that? I thought it was common knowledge but I suppose there is a possibility that it wasn’t. Well now you know. It’s The Day of the Doctor, written by Steven Moffat and aired on November 23, 2013.


Show-notes:


5:45 The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot. Knock yourself out.
7:37 The Night of the Doctor and The Last Day.
18:00 Pretty much every source out there ranks these differently. Some don’t include non-elected leaders and some don’t count Donald Trump as a politician. Here’s just one list. The one I was looking at obviously forgot to include Narendra Modi. Also the queen of Jordan’s name is Rania Al-Abdullah.
24:39 Check out our Blake’s 7 podcast, Zenith.
29:19 Based on these medieval manuscripts, it looks like last millennia’s royal weddings were attended more by nobles than by normal people.
37:21 Genesis of the Remembrance.
38:29 Harry Sullivan did leave in Terror of the Zygons.

Episode 246: Do Androids Dream of Electric Peeps?

I’m pretty sure electric peeps would suck even worse than normal peeps.

You know, we kind of have experience with dealing with something we like to pretend doesn’t exist. It’s called Trust Your Doctor, Episode 1. We even rerecorded it like 5 years later, and then literally replaced it in the podcast feed so no one would see the original version. Kind of like our version of the War Doctor. Except you can still totally find episode 1. As if I’d tell you where though. It’s Name of the Doctor, written by Steven Moffat and aired on May 18, 2013.


Show-notes:


18:20 According to Paul’s Unofficial Letterbox Pages, “Most houses in Britain have a letter box in the front door, usually a simple slot with a flap over it, through which the post is delivered each morning.” No mention of personal mailboxes outside people’s houses like you see in the states.
21:25 And thus the essence of all crime is undivulged.
20:19 I think the only thing I’ve linked to more than this River Song timeline is the asteroid/meteor/meteorite differences table thing from nasa.
25:08 Arrival is a movie about alien linguistics.
33:49 Some of the best J.K. Rowling tweets.
55:02 Check out our Blake’s 7 podcast, Zenith.

Episode 245: Nightmare in Quicksilver

What ever happened to Quicksilver anyway?

In about twenty years I’m hoping to buy Disneyland. Why, you might ask? Because I want to rebuild it in our image. I want to build an entire Trust Your Doctor themed theme park. We’ll have the Aztecs land, where we just have people walk around dressed as Tegana. And then there’ll be the Koquillian cosplayers and… It’s Nightmare in Silver, written by Neil Gaiman and aired on May 11, 2013.


Show-notes:


6:54 The Quicksilver secene in X Men Days of Future Past is an instant classic. The knockoff followup in Apocalypse is just embarrassing in comparison.
8:36 Check our our nearly dead Blake’s 7 podcast Zenith. Actually it’s on life support, barely hanging on thanks to us constantly mentioning it on Trust Your Doctor.
10:10 The rides in Wonder Park look really safe.
12:32 Footage of Six Flags New Orleans
13:50 It was The Silver Turk, released in 2011.
15:18 Fool’s mate can be done in just 4 moves (2 turns on each side).

Episode 244: Lucasarts Did it First

One day we’ll be able to prove that, but not today.

When we recorded this there was a bout a 15 minute period where we just got paralyzed with fear. Turns out the Crimson Horror is the lobster we bought as a pet for the podcast. Of course, we’re only ever in the recording room once a week so the poor guy didn’t get much socialization. You might think he died, well actually he just came up with a extremely convoluted plan to overthrow the podcast. It’s The Crimson Horror, written by Mark Gatiss and aired on May 4, 2013.


Show-notes:


0:31 Damn my past self for asking me to link to this.
1:53 Last year Ahmed Best revealed he almost killed himself over the backlash against his role as Jar Jar. We discussed some of the reasons against the backlash years ago on our movie trilogy podcast Triple Play.
7:05 Check out our Blake’s 7 podcast, Zenith.
11:50 Space Fall is a great Blake’s 7 podcast.
33:00 Can’t blame Disney for this.

Episode 243: Elon Musk’s New “Innovation”

How many things has Elon invented now?

Trust Your Doctor is a complex beast. We record in an office so sparse and huge it’s comparable to the TARDIS itself. We even have a whole room just singularly dedicated to cotton candy. Like. It’s just walls and walls of cotton candy machines. That’s all that’s in there. This is a 100% true fact. It’s Journey to the Center of the TARDIS, written by Steve Thompson and aired on April 20, 2013.


Show-notes:


0:37 The Rock was actually in the sequel to the 2008 Journey to the center of the Earth, Journey 2: The Mysterious Island.
1:19 Michael Caine on Jaws: The Revenge: “No [I haven’t seen it]. But I have seen the house it bought for my mum. It’s fantastic.”
1:49 Check out our discussion of Iron Man on our other podcast Triple Play.
14:09 Challenger was the one in 1986 that blew up when it took off. Columbia was the one that blew up when it was coming back in 2003.
25:22 Not gonna link the 2018 Slender man trailer again. That thing gave me nightmares last week. Instead have this harmless wikipedia link.
33:49 Free Solo is a movie about a guy who climbs mountains without equipment.
40:43 Here’s the documentary from 1986.
47:10 Young Goodman Brown.
