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.

This week Kiyan and Dylan…. release late, and then silently swear at the cricket on the recording. It stops about 3 minutes in, don’t worry. Well he returns for a short encore or two and then disappears. Maybe he died. Anyway the serial at hand is The Seeds of Doom, written by Robert Banks Stewart and aired in January through March of 1976.

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.
