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.

Special 4: Gnomewatch

We’re now courting founds for our Baywatch remake in the vein of Gnomeo and Juliet.

This week Kiyan and Dylan take a nice little stroll down into some random village in the middle of the nowhere. They were getting a bit tired of The Doctor’s antics and decided to follow Sarah Jane and K9 for a week. In this very special episode of Trust Your Doctor, we cover the pilot (and only aired episode) of K9 & Company, written by Terrance Dudley and aired on the 28th of December 1981.


Show-notes:


1:54 The Australian K9 TV series is just called K9. It was the first Doctor Who-related series with which the BBC wasn’t involved. Bob Baker was involved though. It also features a horrific new redesign for K9!
5:31 Apparently Hecate/Hekate was a Greek goddess of witchcraft, necromancy, and other sketch things.
13:00 Other robotic dogs include Poo-Chi and Spot. Warning: the second link contains cruelty toward robots, which we don’t condone. Stop kicking robots!
28:13 O Levels, or Ordinary Levels, are a now-defunct (in the UK) section of high school level classes. Apparently they’re less difficult than higher levels of classes, like the A Levels.
30:30 K9: Timequake is a movie written by Bob Baker and set to release for K9’s 40th anniversary in 2017. It features K9 (duh) and… Omega? Yes, Omega. Yes, really. This is really real. Really.
31:25 Anti-matter universe.
45:50 Like we’ve mentioned about 100 times now, we’ll be doing a Fourth Doctor era retrospective next week in place of our usual episode, and it’ll feature Jim and Martin from Krynoid Podcast. You can find their show at all the links on this page.
