Episode 188: Being Angry Isn’t That Fun

Forget being angry, I’m all about being sad now.

Gridlock is unfairly maligned. I’m putting that opinion here in writing, so you can never argue that I’ve said it, even if the audio for this episode gets garbled and never released. Or corrupted by the forces that be (looking at you Russell T.) It’s Gridlock, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on April 14, 2007.


Show-notes:


17:51 Couldn’t have been Christmas Invasion since Janis Joplin died in 1970.
18:22 STEED
21:02 I guess Old Rugged Cross is a southern song because this and all other versions of it that I could find sound pretty southern.
21:06 Stand by m- I mean Abide with Me.
27:06 Last of the Gadarene is a Third Doctor book by Mark Gatiss. If you’re watched or read anything else by Mark Gatiss, then you already know the story of this book. We’re onto you Mark.
37:18 Check out our Blake’s 7 podcast Zenith.

Episode 187: The History of Inn-keeping

Inn-keeping is a very old and difficult profession.

This week Trust Your Doctor gets super spooky… in February. Why not, I guess, why not just release scary things in February? Nothing says you have to release them in October. It’s The Shakespeare Code, written by Gareth Roberts, and aired on April 7, 2007.


Show-notes:


0:38 Gareth Roberts didn’t write anything for series 1. The only things by him that we’ve covered are Bang-Bang-a-Boom, The Romance of Crime, The English Way of Death, and now this.
2:51 Yeah, Lilith is a demon or something.
20:49 The last time California carried out the death penalty was in 2006.
26:27 This Animaniacs reboot is the most necessary thing in years. Totally 100% needed and I’m sure it will be amazing and won’t even come close to sucking.
27:40 Yeah, it was Arthur C. Clarke.
41:54 This one.
43:16 This trailer for the 1993 Much Ado About Nothing movie kind of feels like it was a VHS preview rather than a theatrical trailer.

Episode 186: Weird Sci-Fi Rain

Everybody knows that sci-fi rain is better than regular rain.

This week we start another season of reboot Doctor Who. We’re really motoring on through these, we’re a third of the way through 10’s run already, can you believe it? It’s Smith and Jones, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on March 31st, 2007.


Show-notes:


5:40 The Checklist Manifesto by Atul Gawande is a book about how surgeons implemented checklists into their surgery process and improved it and stuff.
11:47 Yeah, Jamie uses the John Smith name in a hospital.
27:01 The Haemovores were actually from The Curse of Fenric.

Episode 185: Who Haven’t the Time Lords Killed?

So far they should honestly be at the top of the kill count if we had them on there.

Trust Your Doctor moves through the years pretty quickly, which means it’s already Christmas again. Yes, that’s right, it’s Christmas. Merry Christmas. It’s The Runaway Bride, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on December 25, 2006.


Show-notes:


1:23 There were a lot of different versions/recordings, too many to list here, but the wiki has them all.
25:29 Arachne.
36:25 Best quality that 5 seconds of googling could find. Poor aliens.

Special 8: The Four Year Anniversary!

I only know one thing: the podcast must die.

Well this year we put out our least enthusiastic and most unnecessary anniversary episode ever. Next year’s going to be a big celebration because it’s our 5-year, and then after that it’s kind of “eh who cares.” You feel me? Anyway, thank you all for listening, it really means the world to us!


Show-notes:


9:36 You can find Flight Through Entirety here and Krynoid Podcast here. Links to where you can find their podcasts and their other accounts are on their pages.
10:38 What could possibly be a better Christmas present than a relatively uninformed Blake’s 7 podcast?

Episode 184: Cockblocked by the Universe

Universe turns out to be kind of a jerk this week.

Well, nothing even worth watching for anymore. Rose is “dead”, the Doctor is about to become a mopey teenage boy, and Russell T. has clearly run out of ideas already. It’s Army of Ghosts and Doomsday, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on July 1st and 8th, 2006.

58:00 Our other podcasts Triple Play (movie trilogies) and Zenith (Blake’s 7).

Episode 183: At Least We Have Eurovision

America has it now too. I think.

This week we’re continuing the whole “Doctor Who sucks and we’re pretty sure we should just shut it all down right now” thing we started last week. Trust us, it’s bad. It’s Fear Her, written by Matthew Graham and aired on June 24, 2006.


Show-notes:


3:37 Stephen Fry. Never even heard of this guy.
10:16 Zenith is our new Blake’s 7 podcast. You can find the newest episode of it, Space Fall currently, here.
16:59 Get in the damn box.
30:32 Thanks J.R. Thanks.

Episode 182: Play the Benny Hill Theme Over This

Couldn’t make the episode any worse.

Things are about to get pretty rocky on the show. Trust Your Doctor and Doctor Who. Both of them. Look it’s just bad, it’s that point in the year where we have to wonder if it’s really worth continuing the show anymore. Because Doctor Who is a bit ropey right now. It’s Love and Monsters, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on June 17, 2006.


Show-notes:


6:47 For Christmas 2017 we read The Hopes and Fears of all the Years by Paul Cornell. Check out that episode here.
12:15 Shirley Henderson. I guess she’s one of those actors who uses one voice across all roles.
21:21 Yeah, ELO has been around for like 20 years total. Started in 1970 and is still going, with a long hiatus somewhere in there.
41:02 We just started a new Blake’s 7 podcast where we watch Blake’s 7 for the first time and discuss it. Check out Zenith here.

Episode 181: Satan Comes Down Your Chimney

Every Christmas I think to my self “Move over Santa, it’s Satan’s time to shine now.” It never works.

This week we’re not Kiyan and Dylan anymore, it’s edgy and dark Kiyan and Dylan. The goth versions of us if you will. We hail Satan and draw upside down crosses because we think it’s cool. It’s The Impossible Planet and The Satan Pit, written by Matt Jones and aired on June 3rd and 10th, 2006.

5:24 Plo Koon.

Christmas Special 2017

Best wishes to all of you at home. Or something.

This year we decided to do a Christmas Special because apparently we just love recording so much we just had to do another episode. In fact, we love recording so much that we even decided that we’re starting a third podcast! I know! Blah: A Blah Podcast can be found wherever your podcasts are sold… soon ™. I’ve cunningly censored the name of the podcast in this description to force you to listen! I’m brilliant! So Happy Holidays and stuff. The story we talked about is called The Hopes and Fears of all the Years, which was written by Paul Cornell and published on the Telegraph website on December 22, 2007. You can read it here.


Show-notes:


1:27 It’s from a hymn called O Little Town of Bethlehem. I’m tempted to click on the “Play a random hymn” link on that site.
4:52 A Shocking Accident by Graham Greene. Apparently Rap Genius has full stories now, so here’s the full text.
6:00 Might have been related to the Japanese occupation of Burma or Burmese independence from British rule. But I really don’t know, so read those links and do your own googling to find out more.
14:18 Actually coming January 2nd.
14:53 The Way Ahead actually isn’t out yet, which makes sense since Blake’s 7 isn’t 40 yet. But it will be in a couple weeks, so you can get it from Big Finish then.
