Episode 53: The Trial of Kerr Avon

It’s like Trial of a Time Lord but better.

It’s really hard to believe that we’re so cloes to the end. This is the latest thing I think we’ve ever listened to for Trust Your Doctor or Zenith, but not the latest thing we’ve covered (thanks Triple Play, check it out). Can you believe that we’ve done this podcast for nearly a year? That’s actually amazing. It’s The Way Ahead, written by Mark Wright and released on January 2, 2018.


Show-notes:


2:42 This site’s forum.
15:15 Michael Keating and Paul Darrow appeared on the sci fi episode of Pointless Celebrities about 2 months ago.
20:30 Simon Power was responsible for music according to the official page from Big Finish.
26:58 Logan’s Run came out in the U.S. in 1977, but I’ve heard from a couple of Blake’s 7 podcasts that it aired in the UK very close to the first episode of Blake’s 7.
50:23 These are some annoying grapes.
1:13:52 Dempsey and Makepeace is a 1985 cop show with Glynis Barber in it.

Episode 50: Dalek-flavored Toothpaste Ft. Sgt. Draino

Coming soon to a merchandise store near you!

It’s a good thing we were joined by Sgt. Draino this week, so that we can decide which one of us to throw out of the airlock to make sure that this podcast makes it out of orbit. That’s right, we’re recording the final episode in space which means we have to drop one of three people. Who’s it gonna be? It’s Orbit, written by Robert Holmes and aired on December 7, 1981.


Show-notes:


15:10 Malcolm Hulke actually did write for The Avengers. IMDB lists which episodes.
21:44 Someone once described Logan to me as “X-Men meets The Road (the Cormac McCarthy book)
1:15:23 Babylon 5 is a show that’s somewhat similar to Blake’s 7. The show’s creator, J. Michael Straczynski, has acknowledged being influenced by Blake’s 7.
1:18:52 Check out Sgt. Draino’s podcast Station 7 – The Door (also available on iTunes and probably other platforms as well).

Episode 32: When Does Murder Become Genocide?

Pretty much right about now I think.

Have any of our listeners watched City at the Edge of Forever? I’m actually curious to know, I’m sure we have at least a few Star Trek fans in the audience, there has to be at least one. I’m sure of it. Come on. Just send us an email. It’s City at the Edge of the World, written by Chris Boucher, and aired on February 11, 1980.


Show-notes:


1:59 City at the Edge of Forever is Star Trek episode. Never watched it or any episode of Star Trek actually but some of the imagery from the wiki page looks pretty cool.
4:18 Top Gear isn’t a tv show, it just means the topmost gear on any shelf. Don’t let anyone tell you it’s a tv show. If they do, they’re lying.
18:27 Check out Trust Your Doctor if you like Doctor Who. Please.
19:30 Both the White Guardian and the Black Guardian were played by the same two actors in all their appearances on the tv show. Cyril Luckham played the White Guardian and Valentine Dyall played the Black Guardian.
30:34 Here you go. Knock yourself out. Didn’t even bother to read this article. Welcome to Zenith episode notes.
35:49 Josette Simon was born in November 1960, so she was actually only 19 when this aired, and probably 18 when it was made.
