    This is the start of our crazy little romp through Big Finish/Virgin Missing Adventures/questionable quality. It’s Storm Warning, written by Alan Barnes and released in January of 2001. Storm Warning can be purchased for $3 (or your local equivalent) on Big Finish’s website.

    22:55 Ok, if you like pretty great stories that only take like a minute to read and are also literal trash, here’s Franz Kafka’s Before the Law (one translation of it).
    34:43 The de-mat gun, as seen in Invasion of Time. That’s right Rassilon. Yeah. Get out of here. And get your name off this stupid gun. Oh, it’s not on it. Well still get out. Jerk.

    Hey look, kaboom and vroom rhyme.

    This week we start a new era, and then immediately end it. It’s a single episode long, albeit a much longer than usual episode. It’s a bit weird, you may not have heard of it. It’s called The TV Movie, written by Matthew Jacobs and aired in May of 1996.

    Show-notes:
    22:55 He should have worn it cause he’s not a crook.
    39:53 They mentioned it again in Invasion of Time.

    And with that, it ends.

    Trust Your Doctor would like to announce that we’re going on a 7 year hiatus. We’ll return with the TV Movie in April of 2024. Until then, we hope you enjoy this look back at the Seventh Doctor as well as the classic show as a whole.

    Show-notes:
    14:18 Mostly Made Up Doctor Who Episode Guide is one of the best Doctor Who podcasts out there.
    22:21 “Dinner tonight’s going to be a national disaster” is the real quote. Best quote. Best character. Bring back the chef.
    26:24 300 came out in the year 300. Jk it came out in 2006.
    33:25 Apparently British colonization in Australia lasted from 1788 to 1901.

    No offense intended, of course.

    We did it. We’ve reached the end of the classic Doctor Who. The show is dead. We’re dead. Everything is dead. Which is kind of weird, because the story is called Survival. It was written by Rona Munro and aired in November and December of 1989.

    Show-notes:
    6:30 Wow, it’s real. But apparently black cat appreciation day also exists and is on August 17th. I have my calendar marked. Actually I don’t.
    11:51 Probably Doctor Who and the Silurians.
    21:25 According to this National Geographic article from 3 years ago, Cheetah’s are between 40 and 50 percent successful, less than other big cats.
    50:22 Mostly Made Up Doctor Who Episode Guide is now my favorite Doctor Who podcast.

    Stupefy!

    Halfway through the final season wow. This week we’re back with possibly the most confusing story ever broadcast in the history of television. I promise. It’s Ghost Light, written by Marc Platt, aired October of 1989.

    Show-notes:
    5:07 Yeah, apparently they used a real house just for the exterior and apparently the observatory was added in post production.
    13:37 Well searching “round mini shades” only brought up pictures of lampshades and searching “round mini glasses” brought up pictures of drinking glasses. My google fu is weak. Oh well.
    17:35 There were a bunch of guys who researched these moths, but one of the first was someone named JW Tutt. Here’s a random journal article about him. The J didn’t stand for Josiah by the way.
    21:19 Meh. Too lazy to read all of this. So maybe. You tell me.
    24:04 It’s actually a big slug thing from Star Wars. Oh, sorry that’s Jabba. Java is an island in Indonesia.
    37:21 According to a text from Dylan, she had nine heirs. See here for more details.
    37:28 He was.

    Show-notes:
    6:41 Apparently the silver bullets killing werewolves idea got its start thanks to this jerk dog that ate some people in France.
    22:11 You mean this one? Looks actually terrible, so no thanks.

    Ow.

    This week it’s the twenty-fifth anniversary of Kennedy’s Assassination! No, that’s not right. What else happened around that time? It’s Silver Nemesis, written by Kevin Clarke and aired November and December of 1988.

    Show-notes:
    5:18 Because of this crap. Thanks people of the past. Thanks for doing this. Calculating dates is really something your descendants wanted to do.
    15:17 If you don’t already know what that is then you probably don’t want to…
    21:28 The first one is the good one. The second one is the one with the octopus face guy. The third one is the one with the ship in a desert. The fourth one is the pretty bad one. The fifth one is the one that’s not out yet. Hope that clears it up.
    34:52 Jesus… Well, at least the show has come a long way in some ways. Making a better looking costume on a tiny budget is one of those ways.
    37:25 Don’t believe me?
    37:35 Still don’t believe me?
    38:51 No.
    39:03 Check out our other podcast, Triple Play. We talk about movies and stuff. Mostly stuff. We did an episode about Star Wars. We also did like 20 other episodes about not Star Wars.

    Are you happy? We’re happy. Definitely happy. No insane dictator holding a gun to our backs making sure we’re happy. Nope. Definitely happy. The Happiness Patrol, written by Graeme Curry and aired in November of 1988.

    Show-notes:
    1:32 The Thatcher “regime” lasted from 1979 to 1990. Apparently there’s no term limit or term of office for UK PMs, but it’s complicated.
    11:31 Learn more about that here. Or don’t. I don’t care.
    38:36 This mascot. I’ll never be able to look at this thing now without thinking that it’s some dangerous homicidal maniac that kills with a smile on its face.

    Show-notes:
    7:09 Quite possibly the most simple money system the world has ever known. Just look at this simple and easy to use chart.

    And we close out the first season of Sylvester McCoy. It’s the real McCoy. Two seasons left, and spoiler, The Seventh Doctor has a snap character change next week. It’s Dragonfire, written by Ian Briggs, aired in November and December of 1987.

    Show-notes:
    04:36 Now only a $100 value! Sure must be the happiest place on earth for whoever’s raking in all this money.

    It feels like we just started this era yesterday.

    The end of an era, truly. The Sixth Doctor was here for nearly 10 seasons. Wait, you’re telling me that in this universe he only had two seasons? How did you guys cope? So you didn’t get The March of the Valeyard? Devastation of the Daleks? The Damnation? I can’t believe it, this really is the darkest timeline. Well, here’s the Sixth Doctor retrospective anyway, featuring an additional discussion of Spiral Scratch. Spiral Scratch was written by Gary Russell and released on the 4th of August, 2005.

    Show-notes:
    17:20 “Other voice actors: Colin Baker”
    21:08 Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency is a book by Douglas Adams. It’s kind of inspired by the Doctor Who serials he wrote, but I thought it was boring and also terrible.
    31:08 It’s The Langoliers, which is from a larger collection by Stephen King.

    We finally made it to the end of The Trial of a Time Lord. For us, only 4 weeks of TV. For anyone back in 1986, it was a solid 14 weeks. 14! I’m so sorry. It’s the Ultimate Foe, where Part 1 was written by Robert Holmes and Part 2 by Pip and Jane Baker. It was aired in November and December of 1986.

    Show-notes:
    2:30 And The Two Doctors.
    10:18 For Doom the Bell Tolls.
    35:20 Which would be The Wrong Doctors. Maybe we’ll listen to that someday. -\_(tsu)_/-

    Imagine how implausible it was that this would go out on Christmas.

    Actually it’s like a 1/7 in chance that it’d land on Christmas. Although I’m not a statistician so who actually knows right? It’s Terror of the Vervoids, written by Pip and Jane Baker and aired in November of 1986.

    Show-notes:
    16:03 Here’s the list. Other ones that stood out: a flamboyance of flamingos, a bike of hornets, an exaltation of larks, an unkindness of ravens.
    29:03 If you didn’t know, Ms. Pac-Man was originally a Pac-Man knockoff/copycat before becoming officially endorsed by Namco.

  • Episode 148: Why are we Supposed to Care Again?

    18 December 2016 (4:57pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 44 minutes and 6 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Peri’s supposedly dead and we don’t care. Kind of like Crozier when Yiv started dying.

    The greatest Doctor Who writer ever returns. Philip Martin. Why is he the greatest? Well he created Sil, the best villain we’ve ever had. The Ferengi slash Slug hybrid is the most conniving and genius person who’s ever faced off against the Doctor. It’s Mindwarp, aired in October of 1986.

    Show-notes:
    5:07 It’s actually six species. I guess. I wouldn’t know since I’ve never watched Start Wreck. I mean Star Trek.
    10:11 Hmmm… I think I do.
    14:41 Please let this be true.
    15:21 Luckily they didn’t go down that route. And I’m sure they wouldn’t pull something like retconning it into happening in a later serial, right? Ha ha.
    23:42 Definitely don’t not check out our other podcast, Treble Plane. Though the X-Men episode we talk about here doesn’t come out until like March.
    32:33 What most people don’t know is that the theme building at LAX was actually converted from a crashed alien spacecraft back in the 60s. No wonder it looks so futuristic and out of place.
    32:55 3 seconds of Google brought me to this list of iconic buildings. Yeah some of these are pretty cool. Probably pretty famous too. Not sure if they’re top-3-worthy though.

    Episode Duration: 59 minutes and 7 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    You know eventually they’ll make Bible of the Daleks because there’s only so many words you can use for ___ of the Daleks.

    Here come the Daleks again. Is there some sort of unwritten pact that they have to appear for every doctor? Because they have so far. At least for us, I’m not counting the reboot (yet). It’s Revelation of the Daleks, written by Eric Saward and aired in March of 1985.

    Show-notes:
    7:56 The Star Wars Holiday Special, largely regarded as one of the best 3-course dinners of all time, was aired only once on November 17, 1978 B.C. Written, directed, produced, and baked to a golden brown by the artists formerly known as George Lucas and Jar Jar Binks, it has been made widely available in a number of different formats, such as VHS, Blu Ray, Laserdisc, pdf, and cereal box activity. You can check out the Holiday Special in all its glory here.
    10:15 Greeks.
    12:48 Nope.
    19:13 Barrow just changed its name back to Utqiagvik.
    20:20 According to this site, countries that list an indigenous American language as an official language are Bolivia, Guatemala, Paraguay, Peru, and Venezuela. It doesn’t list Greenland, but it’s one too, and there are probably more.
    24:27 Yeah, looks pretty cool.
    31:46 Apparently it took 5 years, but Terry Garrett completed Ocarina of Time completely blind. Here’s the full playlist of all his Zelda videos.
    56:50 Uh… what.

    More psuedo than science to be honest.

    Sherlock Holmes became a beekeeper after he retired from detective work. Did you know that? Well you do now. It’s Timelash, written by Pennant Roberts and aired in March of 1985. I make a note that it was written by Pennant Roberts, because we constantly complain about McCoy when all he did was direct.

    Show-notes:
    3:41 You wouldn’t want to meet the Jabberwocky. He’s actually pretty frumious in person. The other thing that ended with “-il” were Carol’s ill rhymes.
    4:57 MRGLRGRLRGRLR.

    Show-notes:
    3:44 Looks like it was just retconned. Just like how they retconned the Third Doctor into being a world champion hula hooper. Definitely not making this up. Seriously. Look it up if you don’t believe me.

    I question whether the choreographers even knew how to read a choreograph.

    So, the universe is populated by more rogue time lords than we thought. Seriously, every week it feels like they add another one. This time it’s The Mark of the Rani, written by Pip and Jane Baker and aired in February of 1985.

    Show-notes:
    5:33 Yup.
    5:49 Another 30 seconds on google only brought up Doctor Who stuff, so I guess it’s a totally original name. This blog gives an explanation of the name (using this as a source) but who knows how true it is? Either way, I really like “Parabola Rainbow Moondancer Galadriel.” That should have been her name.
    12:54 The wiki lists a lot more, including Susan and Drax. How could we have forgotten Drax?

    Moving swiftly through season 22 we come to another divisive serial.

The divide this week: Vengeance on Varos, written by Philip Martin and aired in January of 1985.

    Show-notes:
    1:15 Yeah, he was from Planet of the Spiders. Not sure how I remembered that. Guess you can chalk it up to my unparalleled genius, like usual.

    18:55 Like that James Bond movie, The Man With the Goldeneye Goldfinger Gun who Only Lives Twice to Live and Never Die Another Day.
    30:56 Sweet dreams.
    42:27 All in Siberia.

    Can you imagine techno renaissance music?

    This week we finally not only finish season 21, but also start the 6th Doctor. Remember last week when we said we predicted the 6th Doctor era to be the most divisive? Well buckle up, it’s the Twin Dilemma, written by Anthony Steven and aired in March of 1984.

    Show-notes:
    4:28 There’s a secret message hidden in The Twin Dilemma
    9:00 More information about the most important part of the serial.
    14:01 Wow, I definitely see the resemblance. Actually just kidding, I don’t.
    16:06 There’s speculation as to what’s up with the h, but personally I don’t care. I have more important things to care about. Like which side of the bed I’m going to wake up on tomorrow. Leaning towards the wrong one right now, but you never know.

  • The Fifth Doctor Retrospective

    16 October 2016 (3:57pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 40 minutes and 28 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    In hindsight maybe not doing this with Krynoid was why this episode was all over the place.

    Remember how the Fourth Doctor Retrospective was fun? This is… sort of fun? We take a look back at good old Peter Davison, and try to discuss his brief but fun era of Doctor Who.

    Show-notes:
    1:09 Which you can do here. Just saying. Not gonna force you to listen to it or anything. Mainly because I can’t. But you should listen to it.
    9:25 Well maybe it needed to die.
    28:54 Make it happen BBC.
    32:53 Y’know. The cliffhanger-y one. The one where he’s gonna crash the ship. Hold on, I’m trying to find it. Hmm… where is it… Oh, here it is. Sorry about that. Yeah, I really liked this one. Even though it’s a quote unquote cool one.
    37:31 The Life of Pie argument goes states that it’s more fun to eat pie than to do anything else in the world, so it urges people to stop what they’re doing at any time (and every time) to eat pie.
    39:00 Yeah, it’s like a couple hundred thousand if you trust science as well. But I wouldn’t trust science if I were you cause last time I did I woke up in Anchorage wearing only socks and a sombrero.

    Episode Duration: 59 minutes and 27 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    And the sequel, Batnipples Forever.

    And here we see the return of one of the greats of Doctor Who writing. Mostly. The Krotons was a bit of a dud, but hey, it was his first serial. This week Robert Holmes returns to write The Caves of Androzani, aired in March of 1984.

    Show-notes:
    0:45 Apparently the reasons date back to medieval times. Figures.
    4:58 And if you don’t know you can look it up yourself. I’m not gonna be the one to let anyone who doesn’t already know about it know about it.
    18:19 Wait, no it wasn’t. -_-
    21:15 Warning: this link is for true underdogs only. Click at your own risk.
    26:16 Melange. The most generic name for a fictional substance possible.
    30:53 More Bowie never hurt anybody. I think. Labyrinth is overrated by the way.
    48:36 Not sure if this is what he was talking about, but this is the first thing that came up when I googled “mars blue.” So good enough for me.
    48:47 Maybe it’s this one, but that’s actually Jupiter.
    48:48 Dylan here, it’s this one. Although I’m not even sure anymore if it’s actually Mars. Word on the street is that it’s just a “landscape.”

    2 October 2016 (3:57pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 1 hour, 9 minutes and 38 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    War is the future. War is our destiny.

    This week we get two companion write outs! Two! Although I don’t think Kamelion can really be considered a companion so much as a plot device really. Turlough, on the other hand, one of the most fleshed out characters that’s not The Doctor. It’s Planet of Fire, written by Peter Grimwade and aired in February and March of 1984.

    Show-notes:
    6:17 It’s called Shell Shock in case anyone’s interested.
    29:06 Yeah, kinda.
    39:21 Or black… orchids!!!
    55:01 Here it is. That cloudy sky, that damp vegetation, how it looks like it just rained and is probably gonna start raining again soon… just another typical day in Southern California. :)
    56:20 Oh yeah, these things. I remember those things. They were gross.

    25 September 2016 (3:57pm GMT)

    Direct Podcast Download

    When are we getting a serious bear themed episode of Doctor Who?

    Wow who would have guess that Davros would come back? And who would guess that this serial would basically display genocide? About 6 people made it out of this serial alive. Amazing. It’s Resurrection of the Daleks written by Eric Saward and aired in February of 1984.

    Show-notes:
    1:52 It was because of the 1984 winter Olympics in Sarajevo, Yugoslavia. Interestingly, that was one of the only Olympic games held in a communist country.
    3:33 NECESSARY TECHNOLOGY.
    18:55 Oh bugger.
    26:41 And then he breaks into song.
    32:10 You mean this one?
