194: Some Semblance of a Budget (Utopia, The Sound of Drums, Last of the Time Lords)

And to think we’ve come far since the days of styrofoam avalanches … but not that far.

This is the longest episode we’ve put out in a long time. It’s over an hour and a half long, and somehow it’s actually sort of interesting for the entire episode, which is really saying something. Remember our War Games episode? Good times. It’s Utopia, The Sound of Drums, and Last of the Time Lords, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on June 16, 23 and 30th, 2007.

50:35 Rose gets a TARDIS key in Aliens of London.
1:03:13 Here’s the scene from Watchmen. And here’s the equally-bad one from Ironman.
1:06:01 Tom Ellis is Lucifer. Lucifer is Tom Ellis.
1:09:48 Rolanda Hooch is played by Zoe Wanamaker, who plays Cassandra in series 1 and 2.
1:13:26 Plo Koon. He’s Plo Koon.
1:18:26 The mirror universe from Star Trek sounds pretty “cool” I guess.
