Episode 209: Let Her Go Russell T.

Don’t you even think about it Stephen.

So it comes to this. The end of the Tenth Doctor, goes out with quite a bang, and about 10 minutes of plot stretched out over two hours with a twenty minute epilogue! Truly, the epitome of the Russell T. Story. It’s The End of Time, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on December 25, 2009 and January 1, 2010.


Show-notes:


4:49 It’s called rack focus.
9:55 More brain stuff from a brain blog that hasn’t been updated in 6 months.
13:07 Children of the Stones. Weird that we’d bring up this series that features a time loop in this episode cause we talk about whether time (and stories) are circular later on.
13:10 Follow Ernest Malley.
1:09:07 According to the wiki he’s only done Song for Ten and the extended version of Song for Ten.
1:13:59 John Barrowman plays Dark Archer on Arrow.

Episode 208: Go Go Gadget Time Lord

Engage gadget uh regeneration… technique…

Coming right up on the end of good old Mr. Tennant’s run here. And Russell T.’s run as well, but the more important thing is Mr. Tennant. He’s had a good run but you know, three seasons is about the max here in the reboot era. It’s The Waters of Mars, written by Russell T. Davies and Phil Ford and aired on November 15, 2009.


Show-notes:


3:48 Never saw this music video before. It’s literally just him standing in a blank white area.
3:54 The rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars.
4:59 Yuri Gagarin.
13:53 None of this is actually true, at least according to Steve Burns’ Wikipedia page.
21:28 I take it back, this is actually pretty funny.

Episode 207: *Unintelligible Clicking Noises*

How about that for a title? Too bad none of us speak Tritovore.

It’s Easter! Not really actually but like, it’s close enough. It’s a couple months late. Just pretend it’s Easter, I mean Easter doesn’t have a set date so we can just put it wherever we want. It’s Planet of the Dead, written by Russell T. Davies and Gareth Roberts, and aired on April 11, 2009.


Show-notes:


1:39 Ben Stiller.
5:19 End of Time*
8:12 Daniel Kaluuya filmography.
10:31 Rub’ al Khali in Arabic. Also Ski Dubai is one of the world’s biggest ski resorts.
10:58 Buy your tickets now.
14:01 SYG, IGH, if you know what I mean.
48:00 I didn’t even read these articles but they’re probably important.

Episode 206: Sea of Leeches

This is the uncrossable leech sea.

This is it. We finally made it to the very first episode that Dylan watched of Doctor Who. Well before this podcast was even a glimmer in either of their eyes, there was The Next Doctor. It was written by Russell T. Davies and aired on December 25, 2008.


Show-notes:


10:09 Labyrinth is a Jim Henson movie starring David Bowie.
16:56 I guess nobody really knows how long the London area has been inhabited, but it’s definitely thousands of years.
20:12 Thomas Paine’s most famous revolutionary pamphlets are Common Sense and American Crisis.
28:15 It’s called a belt.
36:14 Simulacra and Simulation is a book by Baudrillard.

Episode 205: Break Glass to Win

That’s all there is to it. Break glass and win.

This is the end of the Russell T. era. Sort of. Almost. Kind of. Just kidding. There’s still like 4 more weeks for us to go, but it’s basically over. Russell T. has basically thrown in the towel, given us the best season finale of the reboot (so far) and now is going to coast and rest on his laurels until he can basically throw the reigns off onto Stephen Moffat. It’s The Stolen Earth and Journey’s end, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on June 28 and July 5, 2008.


Show-notes:


1:30 Sorry for linking to Know Your Meme.
1:57 Ocean’s 8 is the sequel to Magnificent 7.
5:56 Richard Dawkins is an evolutionary biologist and writer, but I’m pretty sure he’s mostly famous for being a douchebag to anyone who believes in religion.
10:10 Sarah Jane also encountered the Daleks in Death to the Daleks.
19:14 Here’s the Blake’s 7 forum I was talking about.
28:06 Here’s the image with all the companions leading up to Rose. All of the females ones at least (and K9).

Episode 204: Bad Bad Wolf Wolf

Anytime now. We’ll let Rose go. Any day. Just. Right there.

We used to have a grasshopper in our recording studio but we’ve recorded so many different places now that I don’t think the grasshopper has shown up many times in the past year. I was going to make a joke about recording this podcast with grasshoppers on our back but it wouldn’t really make sense if the grasshoppers can’t be heard. It’s Turn Left, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on June 21, 2008.


Show-notes:


8:20 It was Myanmar
18:23 Here’s the entire story. I bet that guy’s still wondering how that shrimp fried rice would’ve tasted.
22:22 I guess I was way off cause London is actually the 13th most populated capital.
25:28 British succession is way too complicated to explain in a sentence or two, so read about it on Wikipedia if you’re curious.

Episode 203: Electric K. Ant

So, Mr. Ant, what qualifies you for this position?

This is one of the best Doctor Who stories of all time according to Dylan, and a very good one according to Kiyan, and basically all of fandom really. Most people like this, so if you don’t you’re obviously wrong. Just flat out wrong, that’s the nature of the game unfortunately.


Show-notes:


3:02 Sapphires are actually a type of corundum and is slightly softer than diamond.
5:26 I completely forgot Independence Day: Resurgence existed. Pretty sure most of the world has forgotten about it too.

8:22 Turns out a klick is just a kilometer.
11:15 Goblin Market by Christina Rossetti.
15:14 Hereditary might actually be scary.
16:09 Check out Zenith, our Blake’s 7 podcast.

19:42 People talking without speaking, people hearing without listening.
42:56 Electric Ant is a story about ants.

Episode 202: Books Suck

Unlike books, however, River is actually useful.

Every once in a while we deserve to take a digression, I think. A nice little trip down the yellow brick road so to speak. Of course, it just so happens that this digression is all of the episode, but you know, whatever! It’s Silence in the Library & Forest of the Dead, written by Steven Moffat and aired on May 31 and June 7, 2008.


Show-notes:


12:36 David Bowie had liver cancer.
32:51 St. Elsewhere is a medical tv series.

1:00:44 The Dream-Quest of Vellitt Boe is a 2016 novella by Kij Johnson.

Episode 201: The Wasp in the Study with the Lead Pipe

Look out! A Wasp!

At the end of this recording session, around 1 in the morning, after recording Zenith, we both walked to our cars. We looked at each other, dead inside, dead on the outside. Just dead all around. “Never again.” It’s The Unicorn and the Wasp, written by Gareth Roberts and aired on May 17, 2008.


Show-notes:


2:36 Cluedo is the original name. According to Wikipedia, it’s a play on the words “clue” and “ludo” which means “I play” in Latin. It was changed to Clue in North America because over here the traditional game of Ludo is known as Parcheesi, so most people wouldn’t get the reference.
4:30 Unicron.
5:12 Ego the Living Planet is a sentient planet from Marvel. I don’t read comics and I try to stay away from comic book movies but I think this guy was in Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2.
5:25 We have a Blake’s 7 podcast called Zenith. It’s alright.
14:57 The Last Man wasn’t Mary Shelley’s second book. I’ve never read this thing at apparently it was mostly ignored in favor of Frankenstein, but it’s starting to get a lot more attention recently.
19:51 According to these bee and wasp articles, wasps can’t grow their stingers back.
21:24 This is what wasp hives look like. Not as cool as bee hives. Another category wasps completely fail in when put up against bees.
23:52 Here’s how you make a Harvey Wallbanger.
32:53 It was actually a mental disability basketball team, but same deal.Spain confirmed for huge cheaters. (Couldn’t find the article.)
34:05 Arsene Lupin is just some guy.

Episode 200: Made It To 200

I was finally there, 200 episodes and still no one cares.

Turns out both Kiyan and Dylan have daughters, I mean, who would have guessed that? They have their own podcast, it’s called “She’s Your Doctor” or something like that. You can tell I’m making this up as I go along really. It’s The Doctor’s Daughter, written by Stephen Greenhorn and aired on May 10, 2008.


Show-notes:


0:41 Harry Melling, who played Harry Potter’s annoying cousin, is Patrick Troughton’s grandson.
1:38 Blue Box 250 is a huge collaborative special that Blue Box podcast did for their 250th episode. We were on it but I honestly forgot what we talked about.
19:36 Nice bog there.
