Trust Your Doctor

In this stunning podcast, two average guys try to get through as much Doctor Who as possible without going insane. Currently they’re mainlining their way through Classic Doctor Who. 800 episodes or bust, they say. And on the side, well. Books, Audio Dramas, Comics?!? Anything is possible! So in summary: They’re trying to see how much Doctor Who they can take before dying.

336: They Keep Killing The Spinoffs (Escape to LA)

Damn we can never get any Doctor Who spinoffs can we?

This week on K9 and Company. Wait no wrong spinoff. This week on Class… Sarah Jane Adventures… The Prisoner… Hang on just bear with me I’m going to get there eventually. Oh Torchwood, that’s right Torchwood: Children of Earth. Dammit. It’s Escape to LA, written by  Jim Gray and John Shiban and aired on July 29, 2011.


Show-notes:
46:39: More on car crushers I guess.

335: Confusing Confluence of Culinary Ideas (Dead of Night)

Honestly this title alone was confusing.

We record these podcast in the dead of night now actually. Like way late at night. Like 7 PM. I know, so late right. In the UK the sun is probably still up at that time, being all a million miles from the equator and all that, but down here thanks to the end of DST we’re solidly two hours into darkness at that point. Yeah sun goes down at 5. Well 5:30 now but you get the point. It’s Dead of Night, written by Jane Espensen and aired on July 22, 2011.

334: Different Hairstyle, Same Fists (Rendition)

I usually prefer to keep my hairstyle the same and change up my fists, but maybe that’s just me.

This new rendition of Torchwood continues to amaze and astound. This week, we’re off to the land of the free and the home of the brave. But first, the Torchwood team (i.e. Gwen and Jack) have to deal with some snakes (noun; a treacherous or deceitful person) on a plane. It’s Rendition, written by Doris Egan and aired on July 15, 2011.

Sometimes, when the stars align, you get a fourth season of Torchwood. This is that season.

We enter the final season of Torchwood, and the podcast is coming to a close. Of an era. Close of an era. Haha almost had you going there for a second didn’t I? You were worried for a hot a second right? Ha ha. Ha. It’s The New World, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on July 8, 2011.

332: Smoking Candy Corn (Children of Earth: Day Five)

Halloween can’t come soon enough.

So the children of earth are saved and the day is mine once more. We only had to sacrifice one kid rather than the 10% that the 456 requested, but the 456 are off gallivanting somewhere else. They have technology to do almost anything but replicate this weird chemical? I dunno. It’s Children of Earth: Day Five, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on July 10, 2009.


Show-notes:


1:01: It was Family Guy that did the Super Man 4 bit.
18:14: It’s not our latest post anymore, but here’s the post I was talking about: Children of Earth and the “First Contact” Archetype
1:11:17: It’s shallow focus.
1:19:40: It was Playing in the Dark by Toni Morrison. I think the link is just an excerpt of it.

I love slime!

Children of Earth is rapidly coming to a close. Which means we’re going to finally move on to the final season of Torchwood which means oh god we’re running out of content. What are we gonna do?! Maybe the 456 should take us instead, that way we can stop making podcasts. It’s Children of Earth: Day Four, written by John Fay and aired on July 9, 2009.

330: Obsessed with Beans (Children of Earth: Day Three)

Really riding this bean trend a little late.

Are we all ready to hear the story about the beans? You know the beans that I bought the other day? Well I bought some beans, and I took them home. And then I put them in my pantry. And that’s it. That’s the whole story. It’s better than getting invaded by aliens anyway. Speaking of which, it’s Children of Earth: Day Three, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on July 8, 2009.


Show-notes:


7:42: The original “Bean Dad” threads have been deleted, but here’s a summary from the BBC.

328: Tea and Biscuits and Gravy (Revolution of the Daleks)

We’re back and tastier than ever.

Have you ever had meringue on your tea? I’m thinking now, it might not be so bad. The heat from the tea could cook the bottom of the meringue kind of like a hot pie crust would do, so that would be pretty cool. You could drink it then and bury your mustache in a meringue. That’d be pretty fun actually. It’s Revolution of the Daleks, written by Chris Chibnall and aired on January 1, 2021.


Show-notes:


31:10: Here’s the blog post we put out on our predictions for this episode.

327: It Says Everything it Shouldn’t and Nothing it Should (Children of Earth: Day One)

Kind of sounds like me, on the podcast.

Have we ever had a five episode serial in Doctor Who? We have, right? I’m pretty sure we did but I genuinely don’t remember any more. A lot of classic who has been completely wiped from my mind because I needed the space in my brain for other things. I can’t remember what those things were anymore. It’s Children of Earth: Day One, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on July 6, 2009.


Show-notes:


2:08: Check out our movie trilogy podcast, Triple Play: A Movie Trilogy Podcast.
41:11: Check out our Blake’s 7 podcast, Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast.
45:40: Apparently you’re considered an embryo until you’ve been in development for nine weeks. Then you become a fetus. The more you know.
1:00:55: Apparently Christopher Isherwood “only” wrote nine novels (if the Isherwood Foundation is to be believed).
