Redux 10: Goings On that are Going On (The Daemons)

Better than going off, amirite?

Look one time the brig showed up at the bar I was at and asked for 5 rounds rapid. Now I thought he meant guns so I shot five glasses off the table. Bartender didn’t like that and made me pay for them. That’s all, that’s the whole story. Wasn’t really that exciting was it.  It’s The Daemons, written by “Guy Leopold” and aired fro May 22 to June 19, 1971

0:54: The Whomobile first appeared in Invasion of the Dinosaurs whereas Bessie debuted in Doctor Who and the Silurians, so far earlier.
5:47: Here is the plot summary that I’m reading in this segment, on the IMDB page for White Witch of Devil’s End. To no one’s surprise the TARDIS wiki has a page dedicated to White Witch of Devil’s End. Turns out it was a Reeltime production and was not made for the season rereleases.
11:02: Artificial hills are a thing in Britain. The Journal of Antiquities has detailed descriptions of a few of them. I always thought these were related to vikings or something, but apparently they were made for various (sometimes unknown) purposes.
13:57: The last witchcraft act was only repealed in the UK in 1951. I have a question though, since the act that repealed said witchcraft act was itself repealed in 2008, does that mean the original act is back on the books?
14:50: The Civil Rights movement went deep into the 60’s and was still going on as America landed on the moon.
36:40: The 7th Doctor Dalek story was Remembrance of the Daleks, so I wasn’t even close.
37:05: Christopher Eccleston says that awe should blow up canon.
42:05: It’s Doctor Who Locations dot net, and believe it or not, it’s still up. It would seem that there was not any interior location filming done for this story, so it was likely a set.
46:48: Pretty sure Kiyan is reading the TARDIS wiki page but if you actually want to know what Beltane is  you should probably go to wikipedia.
56:04: You should watch the 2019 remake of Mission to the Unknown if you haven’t already. It’s pretty great.
1:00:14: If you don’t know the phrase “that activated my almonds,” here’s a neat little primer for you.
