Redux 9: Future Flannel (Tomb of the Cybermen)

Future flannel > present flannel, prove me wrong.

So once upon a time I met this crazed archaeologist, his name was like Toberman or something. He took me to this tomb where he said there was a golden idol he wanted so he went in there and got it. There was this giant boulder and then I don’t really remember what happened next. It’s Tomb of the Cybermen, written by Kit Pedler and Gerry Davis and aired in September of 1967.

1:47: Killer was not the one with IMIPAK it was the one with the plague. You know. Like the one we’re living through right now. Weapon was the one with IMIPAK.
3:42: Goodyear tire company, not to be confused with the Lightyear tire company.
5:08: I was thinking of Janley here.
8:03: I might’ve been thinking of Kemel here, but I barely remember what his role was in Evil of the Daleks.
14:50: Here, once again, is Christopher Eccleston saying that we should blow up canon.
15:25: Luckily there’s no such thing as canon.
17:12: Interestingly, the first time the TARDIS sound effect appears was actually An Unearthly Child, but curiously the TARDIS doesn’t make a noise in Keys of Marinus. The explanation for this is that takeoffs always had the sound effect and landings did not, at least until The Rescue, in Season 2.
18:29: Turns out when the UK says “we’ll get tariff free imports from the EU when we leave” they really meant “we only get tariff free imports from the EU when we’re in the EU lol pranked ya.”
27:35: Did ten seconds of research and found no information on when Doctor Who started to do more frequent retakes of scenes.
39:40: Behold, the Lytton Symphonic Suite.
43:45: According to TV Tropes, the password is always “Swordfish”.
57:45: Yes Patrick Troughton really did want to play the Doctor in blackface.
1:05:55: Check out Triple Play: A Movie Trilogy Podcast, our movie trilogy podcast.
1:07:05: Supermarionation is a really fun word to say actually.
