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.


Show-notes:


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.

Episode 180: Little Annoying Twerps Like Me

So I’d say we’re probably pretty annoying little twerps too.

This week we watch a story that says TV is dangerous. But if we’re watching Doctor Who on TV, does that mean that Doctor Who is telling us that watching Doctor Who is bad? This is very confusing stuff this. It’s The Idiot’s Lantern, written by Mark Gatiss and aired on May 27, 2006.


Show-notes:


2:16 June 2nd, 1953 B.C.
4:24 Good (I guess) short history of Elvis’ appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show.
4:42 Muswell Hill is a suburb of London. It looks exactly the same as how it was portrayed in the episode, probably because they just went there to record.
5:52 Kid nab.
16:47 Annette Mills.
17:00 She’s just kidding right? Anyway, what I’m more interested in is the camcorder vision in this video.
24:44 Who the hell wants to hear actors talk?

Episode 179: The Secret Life of Pete’s Wife

Guys I don’t know if this is going to sell….

This week we finally reach the new Cybermen. Because the Cybermen are what we’ve been really waiting for, all of that other nonsense? Doesn’t matter. Daleks? Nope. Autons? Nah. Cybermen. It’s Rise of the Cybermen and The Age of Steel, written by Tom MacRae and aired on the 13th and 20th of May, 2006.


Show-notes:


7:23 High tech high pizza.
8:05 “Starring actual Domino’s employees” – guess that explains why they can’t act to save their lives and why they don’t even seem to know what’s in the sauce or crust.
19:02 Sounds painful.
19:22 I guess it’s actually Don’t Stop me Now. Oh well. Queen is still overrated.
1:05:55 No need to thank me.

Episode 178: Banana Supremacy

Ninety-nine bushels of bananas on the wall…

I have a girl in my fireplace so I don’t know what’s wrong with that really. Although actually now that I think about it my fireplace is gas burning, so maybe I’ve just been hallucinating her this entire time… It’s The Girl in the Fireplace, written by Stephen Moffat and aired on May 6, 2006.


Show-notes:


7:06 I think it was Ghost in the Machine.
13:19 Wow. There you go I guess.
30:56 Not all of them, just most of them.
48:50 The Turk.
49:30 Which you can get here. This actually sounds kind of good.

Episode 177: Dehydrated Rats

In the end, all we need are rats. Wait…

School kind of sucks, but it’s kind of cool too. There’s a big variety in my school experiences, and probably most people’s. I don’t really know where I’m going with this, because honestly I’d prefer not to have to talk about school outside of school. It’s School Reunion, written by Toby Whithouse and aired on April 29, 2006.


Show-notes:


17:36 She was born in 1951, so if the beginning part of Time Warrior took place in 1973 when it aired, then she was 22.
19:01 Third biggest city in Scotland population-wise.
22:13 Now that I look at the Geonosians again, they don’t really remind me of them. But oh well.
30:11 Yeah, this scene from Sherlock looks pretty similar. But the real question is why is the guy who played Moriarty flat out terrible at acting?
38:08 Nightmare fuel.
38:22 Apparently it’s still in production.
49:49 Link to art.
54:41 Just listen to this. Why couldn’t he have put even half this level of effort into Doctor Who?

Episode 176: Boiling Water is Hot

Hot is a relative term though, maybe it’s actually cold.

I’m going to need you to call a doctor as soon as possible. I don’t care which one, it’s just, I’ve been bitten  by this werewolf, and I really don’t know what to do. I’m starting to feel a bit woozy, so if you could hurry up. I’ll be in the hospital here, watching Tooth and Claw, written by Russell T. Davies. As I’m told it originally aired on April 22, 2006.


Show-notes:


18:52 But did she really say “We are not amused?” Radio Times has the answers we’re all looking for. Or not.
23:12 Like we mentioned, it’s the Kohinoor, which is the largest of the Crown Jewels.
26:06 Yeah, believe it or not, dogs actually can get hairballs.
28:53 You don’t get a a picture of it, but this article talks about how the Death Star’s lasers wouldn’t work if it were real.
32:05 This is actually disputed for some reason, but the Australian government says January 1, 1901, so I guess I’ll go with that.
33:55 12 nautical miles.

Episode 175: More Narcissistic Than Ever

Too many mirrors, not enough time to lick them all.

Looks like it’s time for Rose to actually travel with this mysterious, dashing new Doctor. In hindsight, it would be totally in character for the Tenth Doctor to lick the mirror when he looks at himself. Huh. It’s New Earth, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on April 15, 2006.


Show-notes


18:23 Which you can watch here. Probably the only time I’ve heard “backwards” get rhymed with “lack words.”
18:51 Which you can read here. But I highly suggest you don’t.
31:37 Volume 1: Hail to the King of the Jews, Baby!
31:55 Forgot this was directed and written by Mel Gibson.
31:57 The Book of Mormon is a 2011 musical.
34:20 Can’t wait for the new Spaceballs movie next month.
