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

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.

Qatsi

If we could have made this episode a tone poem we would have.

The audio quality in this episode is a little worse than normal because it was recorded quite early in quarantine (nearly a year before release) before we had figured out how to properly record these things via skype. Because of that Kiyan’s audio sounds a bit scratchy. Sorry about that. It’s unfortunate we couldn’t make it a visual poem, since maybe the visuals could distract you from the audio. Alas. What a kind of shit way to end the season of Triple Play. It’s Koyaanisqatsi, Powaqqatsi and Naqoyqatsi.


Show-notes:


12:23: Archdaily says Kowloon Walled City was 33,000 people on 2 hectares (215,278 square feet) of land.
17:53: Our Matrix episode from (oh god) 2016.
23:57: Our Godfather episode from (oh god) 2020. Just as we did here, we pronounce Coppola wrong for this entire episodes. Hell yeah. And by hell yeah, I mean damn.
29:26: The BBC explains why Prince changed his name to a symbol.
37:16: The Four Corners are where Colorado, Utah, New Mexico, and Arizona meet.
53:00: Yeah so apparently Reggio directed this music video.

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.
