Redux 8: I For One Welcome Our New Morpho Overlords (The Keys of Marinus)

Well we all knew this would happen.

The morphos are taking over the podcast, I’m (not) sorry to say. Honestly they’re probaly here to stay as well, they’ve been treating us pretty nicely so far, and haven’t done anything to hurt us. At least, not yet anyway. Well hear what they have to say on this exciting installment of Trust Your Doctor. It’s The Keys of Marinus, written by Terry Nation and aired in April and May of 1964.

1:22: The name of the patient at the mental hospital was Don Packard, and he played the Shopkeeper in Troll 2.
2:41: Our original episode on Keys of Marinus went out on February 16, 2014. You can check it out if you like.
5:50: You can find out first episode on Lexx over here at Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast.
8:59: The moon landing was actually broadcast in color, but only for missions after Apollo 11. So to break down the statement that people bought color TVs to watch the moon landing and were probably disappointed it was in black and white is probably true.
9:48: NASA has a neat little page about false color in Hubble Telescope images.
36:06: Some of you are probably desperately curious, so here, here’s deduction and grapes for you.
51:52: I’m pretty sure that the frozen whale blubber Kiyan is referring to here is Muktuk.
1:04:10: Kiyan seems to have forgotten about Raxacoricofallapatorius.
1:05:05: Here’s some information on The Big Lewbowski. And here’s some more information on The Dude.
1:07:35: The Tardis wiki actually has a page (to no one’s surprise, even though it’s a talk page) talking about Terry Nation and using variant’s of “Terr. Nt.” in his stories.
1:15:15: Couldn’t find a video of the town burning in A Fistful of Dollars, but here’s a random screncap of it, and you can always read about it on the Fistful of Dollars wikipedia page.
1:30:46: Be sure to check out Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast.
