Trust Your Doctor

In this stunning podcast, two average guys try to get through as much Doctor Who as possible without going insane.

So in summary: They’re trying to see how much Doctor Who they can take before dying.

Audio 27: Spinach Detector (Winter for the Adept)

I need a spinach detector to get all of my spinach organized.

Coming soon from Big Finish Productions, for all your kitchen needs: Spinach Detectors. Joining their long and extensive line of kitchen equipment, like Potato Detectors, Beet Detectors, and angry Time Lord Detectors. Winter for the Adept written by Andrew Cartmel and released in July 2000.

Audio 26: Comes in Clutch ft. Steven Shinder (The Spectre of Lanyon Moor)

I think Kiyan spent a little too much time on knowyourmeme this week.

So one time I was driving my car away from the shop after replacing my transmission fluid and Dom Toretto pulled up next to me. He rolled down his window, and I obliged the unspoken invitation to do the same. He had been looking for a challenge, he said, and offered to race me. I agreed, of course, reluctantly. Long story short, I won. Guess you could say my transmission came in clutch. Speaking of which, this week we’re coming in clutch with The Spectre of Lanyon Moor written by Nicolas Pegg and released in June 2000.


Show-notes:
3:48: I thought it was spelled “fugu” but it’s spelled “fogou.” (Editor’s note: I thought it was spelled “fondue.”)
4:48: Good news, I have the cover for you right here.
9:23: Good news Once again we refer to The Time Scales for these numbers.
23:00:
The mounds were burial sites apparently.
29:07:
Check out Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast, our Blake’s 7 podcast.
30:50:
Believe it or not, I found the TikTok I was referring to. (Warning: watching while British may cause extreme distress.)
37:15:
Screw you guys, I’m going home.
38:22:
They do use imperial units in the UK, and Kiyan and Dylan are both correct. Road signs are required by law to be in feet/miles, and the common British vernacular uses imperial units, i.e. feet for height and pounds for food. Read more in this BBC article.
58:36:
Based means being yourself. Not being scared of what people think about you. Not being afraid to do what you wanna do. Being positive.
1:02:35:
Check out our old episode on The Nightmare Fair I guess.
1:23:06:
Airzone Solution novelisation
1:26:57:
By “you” he meant Kiyan. (Editor’s note: I don’t know what this is referring to.)

Audio 25: Martian Instinct Moments (Red Dawn)

We call those MIMs in the business.

I can’t even have any Earth Instinct Moments. You ever look at a bug and go “huh it’s 4 inches long and it’s bright red with black stripes, it’s probably harmless?” Well good news, you just had an Earth Instinct Moment. And you’re doing better than I am. It’s Red Dawn written by Justin Richards and released in May 2000.


Show-notes:
4:00:
As usual, here’s the Time Scales for you.
9:45:
Pretty sure we’ve talked about this before but Peter Davison is Peter Moffet’s stage name.
10:57:
Feel like I’m always linking the covers of these things for you.
28:01:
We all love the Argosy.
35:62:
Wikipedia summarizes the Brookings Report, but if you feel adventurous you can read the entire thing if you want.
54:26:
Check out our coverage of Star Cops on our classic sci-fi podcast, Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast.
56:06:
Look at me, just gonna link to the Big Finish FAQ directly. (Editor’s note: proud of you.)
1:03:55:
I forgot we read Spiral Scratch for our Sixth Doctor retrospective. What a tragedy that turned out to be. Here’s the cover in all its squiggly awfulness by the way.

Audio 24: The Need to Read (The Genocide Machine)

It’s kind of like the need for speed but more academic.

So once upon a time I opened up a book. And I wanted to just go ahead and read it and be all chill. I sat down, I lit a candle. I fluffed up my couch cushion. And just as I started to read I felt an itching. A need. A need for cheese. It’s The Genocide Machine written by Mike Tucker and released in April 2000.


Show-notes:
7:05: I’ll link to the Dalek Empire wiki page for those curious at home (or wherever you are).
10:52: Mike Tucker’s wiki page lists all his Doctor Who credits and it’s quite extensive.
14:48: For more on Terry Nation and characters named Tarrant, check out our Blake’s 7 podcast, Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast.
24:23: I tried to find some information on BBC oversight over Big Finish but I couldn’t. Sad. (Editor’s note: read the last word in Trump’s voice in my head. Sad.)

14:23: One panel comic

Audio 23: Hot Chocolate Technology (The Marian Conspiracy)

Damn, now I want Hot Chocolate.

Conspiracies. Can’t live with ’em, can’t live without coming up with a new one every 4.6 seconds. Well, maybe that’s just me. Or maybe, just maybe, it’s just this week’s story, coming your way via our way courtesy once again of Big Finish. It’s all about conspiracies – actually just one conspiracy in particular, that conspiracy being The Marian Conspiracy written by Jacqueline Raynor and released on March 12, 2000.

What titles would we give each Doctor if they were named instead of numbered? (This is in response to an email we got.)

Here’s my (Kiyan) picks:
1. The Black and White Doctor
2. The Second Black and White Doctor
3. The First Not Black and White Doctor
4. Thete
5. The Third Not Black and White Doctor
6. Colin
7. Sylvester Stallone
8. The Doctor
9. The The Older Something Is The Stronger It Is Doctor
10. The David Tennant Doctor
11. The War Doctor
War. The Old-Ass One Foot in the Grave Doctor
12. The Caecilius Doctor
13. The RIP Doctor Who 1963-2017 Doctor
Fugitive. The Mysterious Doctor


Show-notes:
4:00: Pretty sure Dylan just said this for the title.
5:10: As always, here’s the timescales webpage for The Marian Conspiracy.
5:50:It was The Land of the Dead. Lmao. Also, I was wrong about Power. It was the second episode of series D. The episode I was referring to was Horizon. Oops.
11:22: I was, of course, wrong again. It was the Tenth Doctor story New Earth.
13:56: Can’t believe I’m unironically linking Horace Slughorn in a Doctor Who podcast.
26:50: I’m just reading Mary’s wikipedia page at this point.
41:20: The cover for The Marian Conspiracy is on the timescales page above, but here it is solo anyway. And here’s the meme, for the millionth time in our show notes, for reference.
1:03:08: Here’s the article I’m reading off of. (Editor’s note: I think this is the right link. Either way, the information is there. I just don’t know whether it’s exactly where Dylan got it.) (Dylan’s Note: Yep that’s right)
1:06:29: Our ep on Bang-Bang-a-Boom
1:11:12: I spent the promised 5 minutes and couldn’t find it. 🙁
1:18:39: The Curator

Audio 22: Chekhov’s Firebomb (The Fearmonger)

Ever stop and wonder what your biggest fears in life are? Probably, but what about whether you yourself are someone or something’s biggest fear? Whether you yourself are stirring a pot of of warm, bubbly fear without even knowing it? Whether you may be called a true fearmonger, which, coincidentally, is the name of the audio we’re covering this week. It’s, once again, The Fearmonger written by Jonathon Blum and released on February 4, 2000.


Show-notes:
0:47: Big Finish dot com back in the 90s. Not owned by whom we currently know as Big Finish. Probably.
3:20: Good news, the show-notes guy is here to give you a link to The Timescales for The Fearmonger.
11:45: In case you haven’t heard, or have and just forgot or something, Ace is returning in the third and final Whittaker special special, alongside who other than Tegan. I would say that this is a pretty ace move on behalf of Chris Chibnall, but only Ace says “ace” with that usage, so I’ll just say it’s kind of neat.
18:30: Here’s the cover of The Fearmonger for you to get into the mood while listening to the podcast.
24:30: Department C19 was a major player in the books, apparently.
27:47: If you for some inexplicable reason want to hear us talk more about Jacqueline Pearce, and Paul Darrow for that matter, check out Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast, our Blake’s 7 podcast.
45:30: For all the masochists out there.
1:14:56: Soccer City is… a thing.
1:17:20: Here’s the post in text form too.
1:22:45 Something something Eccleston… something something explode…

Audio 21: The Common Courtesy to Die (Land of the Dead)

I wish I had the common courtesy to die 🙁

I wrote a Doctor Who fan fiction called “The Colony of the Dead” once. This is a true story, by the way. Anyway, I wrote it long before I knew this audio existed. It features the First Doctor in an icy wasteland where dead people are coming back to life. I’m pretty sure I still have it somewhere actually… It’s Land of the Dead written by Steven Cole and released in January, 2000.


Show-notes:
1:00: We all wish that Big Finish audios were released on Dual Disc, right?
2:35: Why do we need Young James Bond anyway?
8:40: The Koyukon are real indigenous people of Alaska.
21:40: Here’s the map of Brett’s house as uploaded to the TARDIS wiki.
35:24: Yep, Big Finish exists in universe.
45:57: The 6th Doctor became vegetarian in The Two Doctors, apparently.
57:04: Here’s what Big Finish dot com looked like on the seventh of October 1999.
1:03:00: It’s over 9000.
1:07:56: Check out more on Real Time on the most insane site on the public internet, the Tardis Wiki.
1:12:50: If you want to listen to us talk about Blake’s 7 for 50+ episodes for some reason, check out our Blake’s 7 podcast, Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast.
1:13:15: Call the police, my wife has been murdered! I actually did a pretty good Paul Darrow impression here, if I do say so myself.
1:17:00: Here’s a link to the actual news article, now that it actually works.
1:20:50: Listen to Zenith’s final episode for yourself over here.

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.
