347: I Regret Nothing and I Don’t Take it Back (Village of the Angels)

Well, I suppose it was worth a shot trying to get him to take it back. (Editor’s note: No.)

We somehow went this entire episode without making a “Children of the Stones” joke. Can you believe that? I can’t believe that. We made a dozen of those jokes while we were watching the episode, so the fact that we didn’t make a single one in the episode is a little shocking. It’s Village of the Angels, written by Chris Chibnall and Maxine Alderton and aired on November 21, 2021.

3:05: I couldn’t find out exactly when they finished Flux specifically, but I read that Jodie and Mandip wrapped the final special in October. Here’s a handy dandy timeline of the entire season’s + specials production schedule.
4:33: Here’s the article explaining why Doctor Who is apparently banned in China. Apparently the ban has something to do with treating history seriously, which I guess the Chinese government says that shows like Doctor Who don’t. Weird but hey. The article also reminded me that Winnie the Pooh is also censored in China. Lmao.
6:40: Here’s the “bloody good story” and “absolutely brilliant” tweets for ya.
11:40: Devon is a county in the south west of the UK.
16:19: Kiyan and I are referencing Geraint Cooper, from Torchwood.
18:06: Here’s a clip in case you forgot what an Ood vomiting out its brain looked like.
24:17: Kiyan probably could not find the phrase “There is no planet called Time” in the Halloween Apocalypse transcript, because the phrase was actually said in War of the Sontarans.
31:42: From Chakoteya: “JERICHO: Oh, I’ve seen many things beyond my comprehension, Doctor. I was one of the first British soldiers into Belsen at the end of the war. If you think a few stone statues will destroy my equilibrium you are mistaken. What do you need me to do?” Bergen-Belsen (or just Belsen) was a concentration camp.
32:20: I will never find this tweet but I don’t even care to defend this tweet.
33:15: Sorry for linking to Daily Mail, but they had the best picture of Jodie Whittaker looking miserable at the beach.
35:55: Here’s the tweet from the official BBC account of the angels and their scar, for all you fanatics to compare to.
48:47: Don’t worry, Know Your Meme comes through once again.
48:51: And here’s the link to the monkey puppet meme. I made this reference on our latest episode of Inevitable: A Classic Sci Fi Podcast, where we talked about the Firefly episode, Trash.
50:45: Check out our classic sci-fi podcast, Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast.
53:18: We covered assignment 3 of Sapphire and Steel like a year ago.
54:35: From Out of the Rain. Yeah, I’m linking Wikipedia for this and not tardis.fandom.com What are you gonna do about it?
59:29: We regretfully covered The Predator on our soon-to-be-defunct movie trilogy podcast, Triple Play: A Movie Trilogy Podcast.
1:01:07: Be sure to listen to listen to our episode on movie trilogies over on Triple Play: A Predator Podcast. This has to be the most useless show-note I’ve ever written.
1:29:55: We also have an episode on Pirates of the Caribbean over on Triple Play.
1:35:25: Check out Flight Through Entirety.
