Episode 212: War is for Kids

Only on Doctor Who can kids participate in that age old game known as war.

This week Dylan and Kiyan visit Winston Churchill. Turns out he’s as much of a hot head dick as everybody actually portrays him to be. Nobody here is actually surprised. Well maybe one person is surprised. I wasn’t surprised. It’s Victory of the Daleks, written by Mark Gatiss and aired on April 17, 2010.


Show-notes:


10:16 Here’s Ian McNiece’s filmography. I don’t think I’ve seen him in anything else.
18:58 FROBISHER
21:53 Just email us if you want Electric Ant and I’ll send you the full pdf of it.
23:02 On Exactitude in Science by Jorge Luis Borges.
41:31 Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima. February 23, 1945.
46:40 The Special Weapons Dalek was a dalek with a massive gun from Remembrance of the Daleks. Forgot about this freaking crazy design. This is honestly more offensive than the paradigmers from this story, but I guess nobody cared enough about Doctor Who in the 80s to cause a big fuss.

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.

In a world where everyone sucks at their job…

We’re so close I can taste it. Maybe that’s the chocolate bar I just had though. I don’t know. Well, whatever. It’s The Curse of Fenric, written by Ian Briggs and aired in October and November of 1989.


Show-notes:


7:22 Wonder where he was touring.
