Audio 20: Blended Seaweed (Whispers of Terror)

Just drop that seaweed in the blender and blend it right up. Yum.

Did you hear that? That noise. The one just behind you. The one that kind of sounded like a door opening. Nah, never mind, it probably wasn’t important. Probably just the wind. It’s Whispers of Terror, written by Justin Richards and released in November, 1999.


Show-notes:
0:37: Ironically, Kiyan’s specificity ended at not including the actual date of release, since it appears nobody really knows what it is.
3:45: According to the Doctor Who Podcast Alliance, the total sum of our audio output is actually 22 days.
6:18: Considering the rather blistering intro paragraph of this 2008 academic paper, it’s probably not true that indigenous Tasmanians forgot how to make fire. Unless this paper is wrong idk.
7:20: Brace yourself, I’m about to mispronounce Ncuti Gatwa‘s name.
9:00: Yeah, guess I just decided to immortalize my mistake for all eternity. Nice.
13:03: Some excerpts of the interview appear on DailyMail. Here’s the relevant part: “‘It was talent. He was the very last one, we thought we had someone and then in he came in and stole it,’ Davies said.”
35:32: Someone made a compilation of all the times Mel screamed, so you can enjoy that if you like.
36:27: Witness the atrocity known as laverbread. I’ve never tried it, so you know what, hey, it might be good.
1:05:42: It’s called Ghost in the Machine, and we’ve released an episode on it here.
52:27: Here’s what bigfinish.com looked like in 1999. Something tells me the Big Finish we know and love today weren’t the owners of the domain back then.
1:00:26: The dog in question. And on fire.
1:06:28: Here are our episodes on Ghost in the Machine and Sleep no More if you’re interested.We’ve also released an episode on Sleep No More.
1:06:32: I have no idea which story I’m talking about here. I couldn’t find it.
1:08:50: Here’s The Time Scales by the way.
1:12:20: Good news, you don’t need to navigate Twitter’s god awful interface because I’ve done it for you.
1:15:20: Listen to Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast on your favourite podcast catcher.
1:20:00: Behold the rabbit hole of WeatherNewFans.
1:23:39: I had no idea how right I truly was…

Audio 19: The Waking Dead (Phantasmagoria: Revisited)

Alternate title: Hell Yeah, Mark Strickson! We were less enthusiastic about old Mark after we learned he was maybe possibly theoretically hypothetically a redhead, but also not one at the same time. Got give it up to him though. He was pretty fantastic in this story. Or should I say phantastic, with a “ph?” Probably not because it’s not spelled with a “ph,” but what is spelled with a “ph” is Phantasmagoria, written by Mark Gatiss and released on October 4, 1999.


Show-notes:
1:00: I suppose the cover is kind of orangey.
1:20: I dunno here’s a picture of Mark Strickson, decide for yourself what color his hair is. (Editor’s note: It’s chartreuse.)
2:45: This was the optical illusion I was talking about, courtesy of the Washington Post. I guess they had nothing better to report on or something. Anyway, I if you put your finger between A and B in the image, you’ll see that they’re the same color. That’s what I meant to say on recording. Here’s a bunch of similar illusions from the Washington Post.
3:28: Here’s our first attempt at this episode from like 5 years ago if you’d like to listen to it. I’m not going to.
6:35: Behold: stories set in 1702.
9:23: Here’s the wikipedia page on Almanac that Kiyan couldn’t find in a reasonable time span.
15:08: The Visitation is set in 1666.
19:28: Apparently it was true.
23:37: Check out our classic sci-fi podcast, Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast.
55:30: It’s Day of the Doctor that Kiyan is referring to here.
1:02:02 The P.R.O.B.E. videos are actually about Liz Shaw, they don’t even pretend it’s not, because of how rights worked. Also, if you know how/why P.R.O.B.E. stands for “Preternatural Research Bureau,” let us know, cause we’re stumped.
1:06:38 Seven Keys to Doomsday is an audio adaptation of a stage play.
1:07:50 The name of JB’s current Doctor Who podcast, if you weren’t aware, is Doctor Who Gives a F*ck.
1:09:13 The Timescales

Audio 18: Cheesegrating Yourself (The Sirens of Time)

Nothing more grating than a cheese grater, especially when you’re using it to grate yourself. Going to town with it on your own body. Turning yourself into a bloody pulp if you know what I’m saying. Tearing your flesh to shreds if you catch my drift. Permanently maiming yourself in the most hideous and painful way possible if you get my meaning. The grating halt to which our enjoyment of this audio came in the story’s fourth part is pretty high up there on the gratingness scale too though, I guess. It’s The Sirens of Time, written by Nicholas Briggs and released on July 19, 1999


Show-notes:
2:03: When you remember that Tom Baker actually created Slender Man.
7:04: For the love of god, don’t listen to our episode on The Airzone Solution.
8:30: I’ll just link the page for this audio on the Big Finish site so you can see the cover of this audio.
15:30: Know Your Meme has details on the “reaction guys” meme. Here’s the 2014 reunion as a side-by-side comparison.
16:46: Sigh, something something TARDIS wiki something something artron energy.
24:35: Check out Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast, our classic sci-fi podcast.
42:15: Here’s a pretty decent page on whether or not viruses are alive (it’s up for debate) and how they differ from other lifeforms. I think when most people think “virus,” they’re thinking of bacteriophages, which look like microscopic robots. These things attack bacteria and are supposedly one of the deadliest beings on Earth. Luckily, they’re completely harmless to humans.
1:08:53: Here’s a sneak peek at what we’re covering next week, courtesy of the TARDIS wiki.

351: Super Mario Hops (Legend of the Sea Devils)

Did you know that Sea Devils actually have major hops?

This week we return to the podcast that kicked off everything. It’s the moment that started everything, Trust Your Doctor, coming back for its triumphant return. Unfortunately, its to cover an episode that is… less than triumphant if we do say so. It’s Legend of the Sea Devils, written by Ella Road and Chris Chibnall and aired on April 17, 2022


Show-notes:
5:00: Lady Christina has her own spinoff and the cover looks pretty damn boring if I do say so myself.
8:03: Pretty sure I was thinking of 127 Hours here.
12:30: We’re both reading the Sea Devils page on the TARDIS wiki.
14:14: The f*ck?
30:26: It’s 2022. Are you still on a boat?
33:30: Here’s a video of the Doctor and Master’s sword fight from the original Sea Devils story. The video description calls it “one of the greatest moments in Doctor Who history.” I’m inclined to agree.
34:22: Clangers is indeed still around.
35:55: How can you not love how adorable the Skymoos are?
46:29: It was Mario 64 level called Dire Dire Docks.
52:50: Check out our classic sci-fi podcast, Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast.
1:092:30: Somehow I found the tweet.
1:09:00: Here’s the Blogtor Who profile on Marlowe Chan-Reeves.
1:09:50: Here’s a link to “Not that gripping, not that bad.”

UFO 12 – The Psychobombs

Topic of the week: hiatuses.

I’m kind of confused about this episode actually. The explanation for the super strength is the fact that people’s nervous systems were super charged, but does that also mean they got stuffed with thirty kilos of C4? Because some of those explosions were absolutely bananas. No way there wasn’t some accelerant involved. It’s The Psychobombs, written by Tony Barwick and aired on December 30, 1970.


Show-notes:
8:10: I forgot that weeb is short for weeaboo. University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill has a solid page on the difference between descriptive grammar and prescriptive grammar.
12:28: I dunno, here’s a Daily Mail article about it, once again pissing off all our UK listeners.
13:07: Check out Trust Your Doctor: A Doctor Who Podcast, our Doctor Who podcast.
13:14: I mean, just look at Lee Van Cleef and tell me he isn’t a villain.
18:36: Supermarionation is not Super Mario Nation.
19:30: We actually covered Sapphire and Steel on this very podcast, which you can listen to here. And if you want to relive the memories like I do, here’s the intro to the show. Maybe one of the best TV intro of all time.
1:09:21: London Has Fallen shows up on this podcast all the time, for some reason.
1:18:15: I had to do some digging but I found the interview with Jodie Whittaker I read.

UFO 11 – Close Up

This week on Space Inevitable: A Space Sci-Fi Space Podcast.

I’m ready for my close up, are you?  Cuz this week the aliens are coming in full force to take some snaps of us while we podcast. That’s right, real live aliens are currently taking pictures of us right now. You could be their next feature, their next cover model! So you better make sure you’re looking your best while you listen. It’s Close Up, written by Tony Barwick and aired on December 16, 1970.


Show-notes:
9:22: We do actually know. Here’s wikipedia’s page on Barry Gray. Other Barry Gray soundtracks include Dr. Who and the Daleks and Daleks – Invasion Earth 2150 AD.
14:28: Libra is a book that Kiyan has read. Lee Harvey Oswald was the name of the guy who killed Kennedy by the way. I couldn’t remember his name.
24:09: Here’s a clip from Space Odyssey where some classical music plays over some space shots, just for you.
33:15: Here’s the article I’m reading off of about wearing  wigs in parliament, as our British fans scream to see me unironically link to The Mirror.
52:39: You know what, why not, I’ll link to this picture for you.
53:56: We (Kiyan) were (was) wrong, it’s the 1953 Robin Hood that’s the Patrick Troughton one.
55:13: For more about Paul Darrow, check out the entire podcast we did about him (mostly), Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast.
56:47: Good thing for you I’ve already looked up 4D Special Agents for you.
58:22: Check out the Fanderson site if you want.

UFO 10 – The Square Triangle

Our audio tracks somehow got slightly misaligned in this episode, so the conversation is a little off. Sorry.

I never realized triangles could be squares you know?

In the future, I think we should aim to reduce the number of sides in a polygon, rather than increasing. So that would be the triangle would go to… the biangle? Which is possible, just not in flat space. If you have a positively curved space time you can have a polygon of two sides that intersect into two angles. If you continue down this line of thinking…[introduction truncated for brevity]. it’s The Square Triangle, written by Alan Patillo and aired on December 9, 1970.


Show-notes:
3:40: I proceeded to explain this in the worst way possible. But anyway, go checkout the trailer for Legend of the Sea Devils, I guess. And then check out Trust Your Doctor: A Doctor Who Podcast, our Doctor Who podcast.
4:33: I’ll save you all some time and just link you the Blue Box Podcast episode. I won’t tell you what we covered though, that’s for you to find out. (Editor’s note: It’s because you didn’t bother scrubbing through to find out, isn’t it?)
11:58: Do I need to tell you who Avi Arad, Amy Pascal and Kathleen Kennedy are?
15:11: Alien 3 had some golden dialogue, as proven by this scene.
16:00: It’s 3 in the morning and I’m not reading this shit. But yes, manslaughter exists across the pond.
24:40: Here you are, Firearms regulation in the United Kingdom. Basically they spent like a 100 years putting into placemore and more restrictions.
33:36: Luckily for us the podcast isn’t in danger of a hostile takeover. (Editor’s note: yet.)
37:10: Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast is our Blake’s 7 podcast.
52:54: Here’s Steven’s link to the Seinfeld clip.
54:19: Here’s the video where I got this info from like three years ago.

UFO 9 – Destruction

This week we learned not to plant seeds in Straker’s head.

Sometimes I wonder if maybe the biggest threat to SHADO is Straker himself. So many of the things he does seem to be the detriment to the organization as a whole, it’s a hard theory to ignore. Should Straker be replaced? Was Paul onto something in Kill Straker? Find out this week, on Destruction, written by Dennis Spooner and aired on December 2, 1970.


Show-notes:
2:15: Yeah Timelash was written by noted unknown Glen McCoy.
20:51: The amnesia drug in Torchwood was called Retcon.
20:30: Find out more about Peri being a botanist and Mel being a programmer over on Trust Your Doctor: A Doctor Who Podcast, our Doctor Who podcast.
21:25: More information on Billington continuously testing for Bond.
28:21: I couldn’t find out why UFO was aired in whatever order each station wanted to air it in, but the Gerry Anderson wiki notes that certain episodes premiered simultaneously thanks to all the stations that aired the show just doing whatever they want.
30:26: Go read about when the non-dominant hand is better for yourself.
46:30: Ice Station Zebra is a movie that stars Patrick McGoohan, and which is actually kind of boring. (Editor’s note: It gets better in the last 10 minutes, kind of like this episode.)
49:33: Don’t worry Kiyan, here’s some information for you on UFOs.
50:20: It was called alienstock, believe it or not. If only Naruto run guy were there.
52:20: Google’s pronunciation says it’s pronounced fav-ih-con, but Lexico says it’s fave-a-con.
56:57: For context, check out our Blake’s 7 podcast, Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast.
1:01:40: I knew it was a partnership, but K9 was actually created by Bob Baker and Dave Martin, not Pip and Jane Baker.

UFO 8 – Sub-Smash

Something something title of this episode something something Freeman Apologist.

Look if I had a sub as a kid, I would smash it too. Actually, I have this Lego set of the Beatles Yellow Submarine, and when I got it and I used to have this obsession with taking it apart and rebuilding it. I got to the point where I could basically rebuild it from memory, it was pretty cool actually. I guess that’s kind of a sub-smash. It’s Sub-Smash, written by Alan Fennell and aired on November 11, 1970.


Show-notes:
1:15: Well, you can see framecaplib for yourself. Thanks to the magic of show-notes.
18:00: Tell me this guy doesn’t look at least a little like Willem Dafoe.
50:11: Feast your eyes.
1:04:25 Hree’s the original Thundercats intro. It was actually done by Topcraft (precursor to Pacific Animation Corporation/Walt Disney Animation Japan), an animation studio formed by former Toei employees.

UFO 7 – Kill Straker!

Something something, we didn’t even make an Eldrad Must Die reference somehow.

Honestly, with a name like Straker, it’s not too hard to comprehend why people would want to kill him. I mean, it’s such a pretentious name. Just listen to it as it rolls off the tongue. Straker. It’s harsh. Arrogant. Bombastic. Not saying we should kill Straker, just saying i empathize with Foster. It’s Kill Straker!, written by Donald James and aired on November 4, 1970.


Show-notes:
2:57: We have an episode on The Prisoner’s Living in Harmony, if you’re so inclined to listen to more Inevitable. Also: The Girl Who was Death.
5:1: Redshirts is a good book, I would recommend you pick it up.
17:00: This is like the third time I’ve linked this Shado Library timeline.
20:27: Here’s that quora link for everyone following along at home. And yes, we have googled whether you can reattach someone’s ear for our podcasts. Don’t ask.
24:45: For more about Doctor Who, check out Doctor Who. Alternatively, check out our Doctor Who podcast, Trust Your Doctor: A Doctor Who Podcast.
50:50: Conveniently for you, dear audience, we have an episode of Trust Your Doctor on Curse of Fenric. Apparently I can’t even remember the name of the serial correctly, oops.
52:38: Here’s the Dumb and Dumber scene I was talking about. Not as overblown as I remembered it. Also, it was Jeff Daniels’ character, not Jim Carey’s.
55:17: Check out Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast, our Blake’s 7 podcast.
56:23: Anorak Zone ranks this episode as the 17th best of UFO.
1:02:15: Are we filthy corpos too? (Editor’s note: I am. Dylan’s not.)
1:06:20: Wikipedia calls Afrikaans a “daughter language” of Dutch. Apparently I also had the direction of the mutual intelligibility backwards. See the link for more information.
