Redux 11: Choose Sarcasm (Genesis of the Daleks)

You don’t choose sarcasm on a daily basis?

You’re missing out. Kind of like how we’ve missed out for the last 2,100 days on releasing an episode covering Genesis of the Daleks. Why are there no Doctor Who podcasts that only cover Genesis of the Daleks? The world may never know. Anyway, this week it’s Genesis of the Daleks, written by Terry Nation and aired from March 8 to April 12, 1975.


Show-notes:
2:20: We did go out in blaze of glory on our Blake’s 7 podcast Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast, which you should check out if you like podcasts, Blake’s 7, or podcasts on Blake’s 7.
2:35: it’s a good point.
15:15: Iron cross
16:15: Adolf Eichmann was one of the military organizers of the “Final Solution”, i.e. the genocide of Jewish people in Germany. Josef Mengele was one of the top scientists in the Nazi regime, performing untold countless atrocities “in the name of science” on prisoners in concentration camps.
48:09: The script for Genesis of the Daleks was released in The Scripts: Tom Baker 1974/5. Weirdly enough it’s on Amazon.
48:42: Here’s the Chakoteya transcript for this episode, I guess.
53:47: The image for Death to the Daleks on the TARDIS wiki actually kind of looks like a fan render and photoshop which is baffling because normally the wiki picks pretty good representative images.
56:56: Genesis of the Remembrance is pretty funny actually, I didn’t believe it at first.
1:20:23: Check out Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast.
1:21:20: The American Sherlock Holmes tv series was from 1954.
1:23:2: Leicester is just one of those British words that is pronounced nothing like how it’s spelled. Like Worcestershire.
1:26:00: The Airzone Solution
1:28:10: Don’t worry, turns out we actually know exactly why Peter Gabriel left Genesis.

Lexx 4 – Gigashadow

I’m giga-over this show at this point.

Speaking of over it, I really procrastinated on writing this little summary. Honestly even now I don’t know what I should say. So I’m kind of saying this, I guess. Not much more to say on the matter really, Lexx S1 is done and so are we. It’s Gigashadow, written by Paul Donovan, Jeffery Hirschfield and Lex Gigeroff and released on September 11, 1997.


Show-notes:
3:30: We watched Troll 2 for one of our podcasts, Triple Play.
6:04: If there’s one thing I’ve learned watching Lexx, it’s that everything changes.
9:26: S’mores are a thing that are typically cooked over a campfire and are deliciously unhealthy and are probably part of the reason so many people have diabetes.
14:54: If you’re interested in the Liberator, that means you’re probably also just as or vastly more interested in the show it’s from, Blake’s 7, which we did a podcast, Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast, on.
35:45: I was thinking of these worms that leech off of crickets and mayflies.
40:55: Pinocchio 3000 actually looks bonkers.
42:13: We actually watched the 2d animated special “Kung Fu Panda: Secret of the Furious Five” over on Triple Play, and not Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness.
43:13: We also watched the Bourne Identity tv movie on Triple Play.
1:07:16: Go and check out Trust Your Doctor while you wait for more Inevitable.

Redux 10: Goings On that are Going On (The Daemons)

Better than going off, amirite?

Look one time the brig showed up at the bar I was at and asked for 5 rounds rapid. Now I thought he meant guns so I shot five glasses off the table. Bartender didn’t like that and made me pay for them. That’s all, that’s the whole story. Wasn’t really that exciting was it.  It’s The Daemons, written by “Guy Leopold” and aired fro May 22 to June 19, 1971


Show-notes:
0:54: The Whomobile first appeared in Invasion of the Dinosaurs whereas Bessie debuted in Doctor Who and the Silurians, so far earlier.
5:47: Here is the plot summary that I’m reading in this segment, on the IMDB page for White Witch of Devil’s End. To no one’s surprise the TARDIS wiki has a page dedicated to White Witch of Devil’s End. Turns out it was a Reeltime production and was not made for the season rereleases.
11:02: Artificial hills are a thing in Britain. The Journal of Antiquities has detailed descriptions of a few of them. I always thought these were related to vikings or something, but apparently they were made for various (sometimes unknown) purposes.
13:57: The last witchcraft act was only repealed in the UK in 1951. I have a question though, since the act that repealed said witchcraft act was itself repealed in 2008, does that mean the original act is back on the books?
14:50: The Civil Rights movement went deep into the 60’s and was still going on as America landed on the moon.
36:40: The 7th Doctor Dalek story was Remembrance of the Daleks, so I wasn’t even close.
37:05: Christopher Eccleston says that awe should blow up canon.
42:05: It’s Doctor Who Locations dot net, and believe it or not, it’s still up. It would seem that there was not any interior location filming done for this story, so it was likely a set.
46:48: Pretty sure Kiyan is reading the TARDIS wiki page but if you actually want to know what Beltane is  you should probably go to wikipedia.
56:04: You should watch the 2019 remake of Mission to the Unknown if you haven’t already. It’s pretty great.
1:00:14: If you don’t know the phrase “that activated my almonds,” here’s a neat little primer for you.
1:10:12 Check out our classic sci-fi podcast, Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast.

Lexx 3 – Eating Pattern

I have an eating pattern, it’s called eat at 9pm and never again.

So this morning I edited the podcast while eating cereal. So I guess you could say I had an eating pattern while editing eating pattern. Isn’t that wild how that kind of stuff works? I think it’s pretty cool but you never know, maybe the audience disagrees like they always seem to. It’s Eating Pattern, written by Paul Donovan, Jeffery Hirschfield and Lex Gigeroff and released on September 4, 1997.


Show-notes:
2:20: I’m not gonna put a link to that in the show notes. Lol.
4:47: Here’s that transcript of Eating Pattern, for the morbidly curious.
5:29: My personal favorite Doctor Who transcript site is Chakoteya.
5:52: Here’s the Lexxplorations site, which I’m going to leave here and then back away slowly.
7:39: Meatloaf, not to be confused with Meat Loaf.
11:49: Check out Trust Your Doctor: A Doctor Who Podcast.
13:24: I’m going to bring Scorpio and the Liberator to you courtesy of the Blake’s 7 wiki.
29:41: Jackass: The Movie came out in 2002, coming right on the heels of the TV show, which aired from 2000 to 2002.
40:57: Kiyan is probably thinking about Sting being in Dune, rather than Rutger Hauer.
42:22: Zwölf apparently means “twelve” in German. Also einsatz can mean “mission” according to Wiktionary.
49:12: Google Translate tells me it’s Hindi. Here’s what the name actually was: विस्मयादिबोधक चिह्न.
52:17: Here’s the Horizon Blake’s 7 forum.

Redux 9: Future Flannel (Tomb of the Cybermen)

Future flannel > present flannel, prove me wrong.

So once upon a time I met this crazed archaeologist, his name was like Toberman or something. He took me to this tomb where he said there was a golden idol he wanted so he went in there and got it. There was this giant boulder and then I don’t really remember what happened next. It’s Tomb of the Cybermen, written by Kit Pedler and Gerry Davis and aired in September of 1967.


Show-notes:
1:47: Killer was not the one with IMIPAK it was the one with the plague. You know. Like the one we’re living through right now. Weapon was the one with IMIPAK.
3:42: Goodyear tire company, not to be confused with the Lightyear tire company.
5:08: I was thinking of Janley here.
8:03: I might’ve been thinking of Kemel here, but I barely remember what his role was in Evil of the Daleks.
14:50: Here, once again, is Christopher Eccleston saying that we should blow up canon.
15:25: Luckily there’s no such thing as canon.
17:12: Interestingly, the first time the TARDIS sound effect appears was actually An Unearthly Child, but curiously the TARDIS doesn’t make a noise in Keys of Marinus. The explanation for this is that takeoffs always had the sound effect and landings did not, at least until The Rescue, in Season 2.
18:29: Turns out when the UK says “we’ll get tariff free imports from the EU when we leave” they really meant “we only get tariff free imports from the EU when we’re in the EU lol pranked ya.”
27:35: Did ten seconds of research and found no information on when Doctor Who started to do more frequent retakes of scenes.
39:40: Behold, the Lytton Symphonic Suite.
43:45: According to TV Tropes, the password is always “Swordfish”.
57:45: Yes Patrick Troughton really did want to play the Doctor in blackface.
1:05:55: Check out Triple Play: A Movie Trilogy Podcast, our movie trilogy podcast.
1:07:05: Supermarionation is a really fun word to say actually.

Lexx 2 – Super Nova

This week Kiyan drops millions of Lexx puns and I hate it.

While watching this all I could think of was that I would love it if a supernova just swallowed me whole. Like if I could just be absolved of my responsibility of watching this movie for this podcast. And the best way to do that is to just be absorbed by a black hole. It’s Super Nova, written by Pual Donovon, Jeffery Hirschfield and Lex Gigeroff and released on April 25, 1997.


Show-notes:
7:50: For more on the Borad and other Doctor Who characters, check out Trust Your Doctor: A Doctor Who Podcast, our Doctor Who podcast.
13:29:
Far be it from me to defend Lexx, but apparently lava can actually get hot enough to look white.
16:39: Listen to Triple Play when it comes back to hear Kiyan defend his opinion on Fifty Shades of Grey.
17:39: Brunis*
20:48:
The Mandalorian uses a digital wall powered by the Unreal Engine to generate realistic landscapes without a greenscreen or chroma key.
27:10: It’s actually a little disputed it Socrates actually said “the only true wisdom is knowing that I know nothing”, since it only appears in Plato’s account of his works, and there is not evidence he himself said it and that Plato didn’t just randomly add it.
30:04: I did not bleep them out in post.
35:28: Flat Stanley is actually an entire series, so go knock yourself out.
53:08: Yep, I was right about who Ilene was here.
59:25: If you’d like the try pronouncing it at home, it’s’ pronounced ‘Folkjokeopus‘. Also, here’s McGoohan’s Blues.
1:03:45: The concept of the selfie has long predated the word. Because they were self-portraits.
1:11:29: We still have a blog. Haven’t updated it in months now though lol.
1:11:52: Check out this sick video of Peter Parker being a jerk.
1:13:31: Check out our Blake’s 7 podcast, Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast.
1:15:08: I don’t know how accurate it is, but forebears.io has a list of the most common names in the world.

Redux 8: I For One Welcome Our New Morpho Overlords (The Keys of Marinus)

Well we all knew this would happen.

The morphos are taking over the podcast, I’m (not) sorry to say. Honestly they’re probaly here to stay as well, they’ve been treating us pretty nicely so far, and haven’t done anything to hurt us. At least, not yet anyway. Well hear what they have to say on this exciting installment of Trust Your Doctor. It’s The Keys of Marinus, written by Terry Nation and aired in April and May of 1964.


Show-notes:
1:22: The name of the patient at the mental hospital was Don Packard, and he played the Shopkeeper in Troll 2.
2:41: Our original episode on Keys of Marinus went out on February 16, 2014. You can check it out if you like.
5:50: You can find out first episode on Lexx over here at Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast.
8:59: The moon landing was actually broadcast in color, but only for missions after Apollo 11. So to break down the statement that people bought color TVs to watch the moon landing and were probably disappointed it was in black and white is probably true.
9:48: NASA has a neat little page about false color in Hubble Telescope images.
36:06: Some of you are probably desperately curious, so here, here’s deduction and grapes for you.
51:52: I’m pretty sure that the frozen whale blubber Kiyan is referring to here is Muktuk.
1:04:10: Kiyan seems to have forgotten about Raxacoricofallapatorius.
1:05:05: Here’s some information on The Big Lewbowski. And here’s some more information on The Dude.
1:07:35: The Tardis wiki actually has a page (to no one’s surprise, even though it’s a talk page) talking about Terry Nation and using variant’s of “Terr. Nt.” in his stories.
1:15:15: Couldn’t find a video of the town burning in A Fistful of Dollars, but here’s a random screncap of it, and you can always read about it on the Fistful of Dollars wikipedia page.
1:30:46: Be sure to check out Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast.

Lexx 1 – I Worship His Shadow

It’s I Worship His Shadow, written by Pual Donovon, Jeffery Hirschfield and Lex Gigeroff and released on April 18, 1997.


Show-notes:

1:51: Check out our other podcasts, Trust Your Doctor: A Doctor Who Podcast and Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast.
1:56: The Lexx Wiki is superb, for example here’s the page on I Worship His Shadow.
6:27: Believe it or not I actually found an example of exactly what we were talking about at this moment.
8:43: @BobRushy on twitter is who I was talking about here.
9:35: Here’s a webpage that collates all of the behind the scenes videos.
11:59: Gareth Roberts wrote a variety of Doctor Who material, but the most famous is probably The Unicorn and the Wasp and The Lodger.
15:08: What would you do if you collected all the dragon balls?
17:35: There’s apparently a capsule hotel really close to where I live. In case you don’t know what those are here’s Wikipedia to the rescue to tell you what a capsule hotel is as always.
20:57: Wow, Kiyan was right, it really does look like a low budget version of the Final Fantasy 10 intro.
21:30: Just watch the trailer for Birdemic, that’s all you need to.
22:01: This is what the monsters in A Quiet Place looked like. (Lol at the filename for this being “Dontmakeasound.webp”)
25:22: The episode of Blake’s 7 is aptly titled Dawn of the Gods, and you can listen to what we thought of Dawn of the Gods on our episode covering it.
35:18: Here’s Black Manta for all you Lexx fans who want to check if I’m speaking the tru tru.
37:25: John McAfee is an absolute lunatic and I highly recommend you stay away from him if you ever meet him. I’m pretty sure this is the long article Kiyan is referring to. (It was actually this John McAfee article from wired.)
38:39: Wikipedia has a surprisingly detailed page on the theory of quantum immortality and quantum suicide.
42:15: The thorax is the powerhouse of the insect.
54:31: Speaking of people liking this earnestly, here’s Den of Geek trying to decipher why Lexx is such a cult classic now.
56:55: The Lexx Timeline is impossible to navigate.
57:49: I’m going to just leave this link to Lexxplorations here for you.
1:01:00: Sybil is from 1974 and is a television film, so it’s likely this is the same Sybil.
1:02:19: ß

342: M&Ms Exist (The Blood Line)

We’re not experienced M&Mologists, but we at least know that much.

I have a blood line, did you know that? It runs right through my arm. Look you can even see it sometimes, it’s blue and if you poke it this red liquid comes out. I only call it a blood line because that’s what everybody else calls it. I never really learned what it was in hindsight, so I’m glad Doctor Who and Torchwood are here to tell me. It’s The Blood Line, written by Russel T. Davies and Jane Espensen and aired on September 9, 2011.


Show-notes:
2:13: Here’s Rex Matheson: List of Appearances for everyone who actually cares.
4:49: Our first episode on Lexx will go out this coming week, over at Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast.
7:12: Wow I can’t believe I actually found the Doctor Who Fanon wiki again.
12:10: The only wiki you ever need is the TARDIS wiki. Like here’s what they have to say about Mandarin. And here’s what they have to say about Chinese Dialects.
18:00: Christopher Eccleston really did say that we should just “blow up canon” and I 100% agree with him.
35:00: Barbara really did kill 4 Morphos in cold blood in the Keys of Marinus
39:49: Believe it or not, the plot of Robocop 2 involves Omnicorp trying to bankrupt Detroit so that they can buy it and take over.
41:29: The M&M’s wiki has a page on the Green M&M. Today I learned there’s an M&M’s wiki.
46:28: Believe it or not I actually did find the book. It’s called Torch, Wood & Peasants: Adventures in British Sci Fi and was written by Si Spencer under the pseudonym Webley Wildfoot.
58:52: Hell or High Water is an amazing movie and you should all go watch it even though I just spoiled it.
1:03:40: I think it’s just called a circle transition.
1:03:58: The dumbest controversies of 2021 was the one where people were upset that they redesigned Lola Bunny in Space Jam 2.
1:06:58: Yes, “king me” is from checkers.
1:16:22: Eminem was a celebrity on Earth. Chris de Burgh was a celebrity on Earth.
1:19:01: Yes they’re reviving iCarly, I know.
1:22:48: Here’s that list for you again: Keys of Marinus, Tomb of the Cybermen, The Daemons, Genesis of the Daleks, Enlightenment, Timelash, Survival

The Prisoner (2009) 6 – Checkmate

Checkwait a minute, I almost made the same joke as the last time we did a Checkmate.

We’ve come to the end of another show and rather unceremoniously bid it farewell for another. Sorry The Prisoner 2009, we hardly knew ye. How could we? You only had 6 episodes, that was like a month and a half of podcasting at best! It’s a good thing we didn’t make a Prisoner only podcast otherwise we would have really been done now. It’s Checkmate, written by Bill Gallagher and released on November 17, 2009.


Show-notes:
1:31: Way back here in episode 1 of this season.
6:30: I don’t remember this dream at all, in fact this is the first I’m hearing of it.
17:53: To “lie in state” is to have your body displayed in a state building so that all citizens may come and see it before you get buried.
18:09: This scene from Spider-Man 3 might be one of the greatest in the history of cinema.
26:50: I Know There’s an Answer is a Beach Boys song, not to be confused with the similarly titled I Know It’s Today from Shrek: The Musical.
28:30: Here’s the opening to The Prisoner in case you wanted to get it stuck in your head agian.
31:07: And, just for you dear listener, here’s Ubik again for you just in case you forgot.
32:22: For even more fun, check out the page on Ubik on pkd.fandom.com
36:33: The best picture of the green dome is right here, on Pinterest of all places.
44:30: We’re still doing the whole blog thing on our blog. We just don’t post every week anymore. (That only lasted like 3 months lol.)
45:25: Keith was on our episode covering “A. B. and C.” in the original Prisoner.
49:00: We talk a lot about what we would do if we were in charge of Doctor Who on our Doctor Who podcast, Trust Your Doctor: A Doctor Who Podcast.
51:48: Trump’s approval rating never exceeded 49% in the four years he was in office.

Some other blogs that talk about The Prisoner (2009) – Checkmate:
