285: Yes, But Actually No (Demons of the Punjab)

 

I feel really bad about not knowing anything about partition, but watching this episode for the second time has actually prompted me to look into it more. It seems to have served the Doctor Who purpose of introducing an audience to an entirely new topic that they had no idea about. Does that make it the most successful Doctor Who episode of all time? Stay tuned to find out. It’s Demons of the Punjab, written by Vinay Patel and aired on November 11, 2018.


Show-notes:


2:12: The Hugo awards are chosen by the World Science Fiction Society. The Nebulas on the other hand are chosen by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America. Wikipedia’s joint winners of the Hugo and Nebula awards. Also the book I was talking about was The Dream-Quest of Vellitt Boe, which won the World Fantasy Award for long fiction and was nominated by the Hugos, Nebulas, and Locus awards.
14:49: Behold the majesty of ThrustSSC.
24:44: It was probably the Battle of Singapore, part of World War 2.
28:52: Seeds of Death had Jamie and Zoe in it.

Children of the Stones 5 – Charmed Circle

Honestly when was the last time you even heard the word charmed?

Honestly this episode seems to have already flown my memory. It’s been like a week and a half or so since I watched it and my brain has just completely and utterly discarded it. Like, it’s just frankly gone. Or at least it was until I remembered that this was the episode with the you know what sandwich. Shudder. It’s Charmed Circle, written by Jeremy Burnham and Trevor Ray and aired on February 7, 1977.

6:32: Nolo contendere. It was actually Scotland that had “not proven
18:49: For more on Fred 2, check out Triple Play: A Movie Trilogy Podcast. Yes, it’s the sequel to the feature-length film about Fred.
21:03: I corrected myself from McDonald’s to KFC here, but let’s be honest they probably both do this.
23:16: The wikipedia page for Forbidden Planet has more info on how the animation in the movie was done. And I wasn’t right about how it was done.
27:00: Ok, here’s the weird thing. I found the page again so I could post the link here (here it is), but it actually says “clearly match” and not “perfectly match.” I could’ve sworn it said “perfectly” and would still swear it did. I wouldn’t have even brought it up if it didn’t. This is some Twilight Zone stuff right here. Or maybe I just misread it. Who knows?

284: Surfing the Skies of New York (The Tsuranga Conundrum)

We call it sky surfing here.

When I heard the name of this episode I kind of imagined it as an almost Kobayashi Maru situation. You know in Star Trek, it’s the no win situation that Kirk cheats at to win, and that cheating is the reason he gets given the captain’s chair because they really like his initiative in… cheating… I guess? But then it turned out to not be that at all. It’s The Tsuranga Conundrum, written by Chris Chibnall and aired on November 4, 2018.

13:28: I did a little googling and I’m pretty sure this is wrong. I think you’d only die by eating and/or licking poison dart frogs, not just touching them. None of the sources I found mentioned that just touching them would kill you.
15:11: Side-by-side comparison of the unreleased cut of Lilo & Stitch featuring more realistic aircraft and cityscapes and the theatrical version.

Children of the Stones 4 – Narrowing Circle

Wait how do you have a narrow circle?

I’m starting to wonder if this series could be even more trippy if I dropped some acid or smoked some weed right before watching it every week. I think that’s what Matt is doing so why can’t I do it as well? Tune in next week for the resolution to this thrilling plot line. Just kidding. It’s Narrowing Circle, written by Jeremy Burnham and Trevor Ray and aired on January 31, 1977.


Show-notes:


9:37: I could only find The Rhetoric of Temporality on Scribd, which you need an account for unfortunately.
18:49: According to this barbering timeline, barbers in ancient times (~900 according to this site) also performed surgeries and were called barber surgeons.
29:00: The Logan’s Run movie actually came out in 1976 and the tv series came out in late 77. It was actually Star Wars that came out on December 27, 1977 in the UK (just about a week before Blake’s 7).

283: The Twitspace (Arachnids in the UK)

All of America is the twitspace.

I just realized how weird it is that the villain in a UK story is an American. There’s probably more to that now that I think about it, something about how America gained its independence and now the UK hates them or something. It’s Arachnids in the UK, written by Chris Chibnall and aired on October 28, 2018.


Show-notes:


2:12: Article about George Lucas’ original ideas for the sequel trilogy.
3:56: Triple Play: A Movie Trilogy Podcast
10:50: Obviously I was just joking here, but a quick skim of the Tardis wiki reminded me that the Master’s plan in Time-Flight was something along the lines of using the Tardis’ energy to break out of some alternate dimension. Also here’s (one version of) that meme with Gru from Despicable Me.
13:46: Yeah I still have no idea what this was supposed to be or what it is. According to the Doctor Who wiki, he said pakora, but that’s not what it sounded like at all.
24:05: Before the Law by Kafka
25:54: Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast

Children of the Stones 3 – Serpent in the Circle

Now with 75% more recap!

The title of this episode makes me think heavily of the ouroboros, which is that snake arranged in a circle that’s eating its own tail. Although really a snake isn’t the same as a serpent but the mistake is easy to make as far as I’m concerned. What is a serpent anyway? It’s Serpent in the Circle, written by Jeremy Burnham and Trevor Ray and aired on January 24, 1977.


Show-notes:


12:47: This article has a pretty good explanation of dating rocks via magnetic field. Just scroll down to “Using paleomagnetism to date rocks and fossils”
20:33: Here’s the picture of the black hole that was released in April 2019 (I think).

282: It’s Just Ozzies ft. Argy (Rosa)

Ozzie Osborne that is.

This week we’re joined by Argy yet again to travel back in time to Montgomery. To be fair absolutely none of us have been to Montgomery before, so it’s a bit of a new experience for all of us. I’ll be honest I think I can say with some mild certainty that most of our audience hasn’t been to Montgomery either. So it’s new for you too. It’s Rosa, written by Malorie Blackman and Chris Chibnall and aired on October 21, 2018.

Children of the Stones 2 – Circle of Fear

Why do I have this weird feeling that there’s an episode of Doctor Who with this name?

This might be one of the shortest “actual” episodes we’ve ever released. Obviously our introductory episodes are always shorted than this, but this covers an actual topic! A whole full 25 minute episode that we condensed into a whole 21 minute podcast episode. Amazing that’s a whole 4 minutes we saved you. It’s Circle of Fear, written by Jeremy Burnham and Trevor Ray and aired on January 17, 1977.


Show-notes:


1:48: According to Wikipedia, Dai is a Welsh name.
6:02: Here’s the mentos & coke fishing video. They’re catfish by the way. Mudskippers are another type of fish that are able to live in and out of water.
18:17: Speaking of Neverending Story 3, we watched Neverending Story 3 for our movie trilogy podcast Triple Play: A Movie Trilogy Podcast, which you should check out cause it desperately needs the listeners.
18:50: The Black Cauldron was a book that came out in the 60s before Disney made the movie.

281: End Doctor Who Once and for All (The Ghost Monument)

Doctor Who must not go on.

When I saw the title for this episode the first time I was convinced it was some sort of monument to Casper the friendly ghost. Like it was going to be something super cool about this cartoon character. In hindsight I’m starting to think that would be the weirdest crossover in existence, but I kind of want to see if they could make it work. It’s The Ghost Monument, written by Chris Chibnall and aired on October 14, 2018.


Show-notes:


10:11: From Wikipedia: Continuity editing is the process, in film and video creation, of combining more-or-less related shots, or different components cut from a single shot, into a sequence to direct the viewer’s attention to a pre-existing consistency of story across both time and physical location.
23:53: Wikipedia (the source of all my knowledge) doesn’t seem to say anything about being able to overcome dyspraxic setbacks mentally.

Children of the Stones 1 – Into the Circle

Personally I find triangles much more pleasing to the eye.

It’s time for us to journey beyond our perception of euclidian space time. It’s time we shut the door on the simple shows of the past, that dealt with complex, 3 dimensional shapes. It’s finally time to take a look at what might be both the most simple and yet also the most complex two dimensional shape: The Circle.  It’s Into the Circle, written by  Jeremy Burnham and Trevor Ray and aired on January 10, 1977.
