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.

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.

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.
