  • Redux 2: It Is I, British Man (The Space Pirates)

    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 39 minutes and 33 seconds

    It’s me, the newest superhero!

    I’m not saying that we’ve engaged in time piracy, stealing Doctor Who from the present then talking about it in the past and then having the show recreate the show from our podcast, but I’m not saying that we didn’t either. Why didn’t Bo Holmes write a story about Time Pirates instead? That would have been way more interesting. We were right all along. It’s The Space Pirates. Written by Robert Holmes and aired between March 8 and April 12, 1969.

    Show-notes:
    23:43: Check out our Blake’s 7 podcast, Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast.
    29:16: Apparently it’s just a myth that the navy has more aircraft than the air force. At least according this Business Insider article from 2015 about debunking military myths.
    33:50: Here’s Bob Saget’s take on the “The Aristocrats” joke.
    1:17:35: Ben Steed’s first story on Blake’s 7 was Harvest of Kairos.
    1:23:23: Pretty sure the movie I was thinking of here was The Box.

    This is episode 300. 300!

    This week we continue to avoid starting Tochwood, and then even come up with more ways to avoid Torchwood for the next coming weeks! Can you believe that? Because honestly I can’t. I’m amazed we’ve been able to do that somehow. It only comes at the expense of revisiting all of our most derided episodes… It’s Daleks – Invasion Earth 2150 AD, directed by Gordon Flemying and released on August 5, 1966.

    Somehow we found more content to cover.

    This week we set the time scoop to “random” and are joined by surprise guests Brendan and Nathan of the fabulous Flight Through Entirety podcast (among other achievements). I think we always knew that somehow we’d cover this movie, somewhere, and so we figured why the hell not, lets do it now. Besides, it’s not like there’s anything else left for us to cover, I say, staring conspicuously at Torchwood sitting in the corner. It’s Dr. Who and the Daleks, directed by Gordon Flemying and released on August 23, 1965.

    Show-notes: 18:50 Here’s Flight Through Entirety’s episode on The Doctor’s Daughter.

    Our first brand new guest in like…. ages!

    I honestly thought that the name of the group of people in this episode was the Villa Diodati, not the name of the house. So it came as quite a shock when doing research for this episode and I realized it was the name of the place. It should have been obvious in hindsight with the double l but alas. It’s The Haunting of Villa Diodati. written by Maxine Alderton and Chris Chibnall and aired on February 16, 2020.

    No for real, can you hear me?

    I honestly thought going in that this was going to be an episode where nobody could hear anyone and a deaf character was going to be the hero. Like, straight up. This story went in a completely different direction to what I expected and I kind of appreciate and admire that. So good on you story for subverting the expectations you created in the title.

    The crossover we’ve all been waiting for.

    I was a fugitive once. The cops came to my house, told me I was wanted for stealing toilet paper during a time of crisis. I, of course, denied it and jumped out the window. Pretty sure I broke my ankle on the way down but I didn’t have time to verify. Some say I’m still running to this day, although I think the police have other toilet paper thieves on their hands now. It’s Fugitive of the Judoon written by Vinay Patel and Chris Chibnall and aired on January 26, 2020.

    Show-notes:
    1:40: Here’s an article about Wikipedia editors editing Bloomberg’s death into his wiki page. Wikipedia editors are some of the most dangerous and unhinged people out there.

    Bring back K9.

    This week on Trust Your Doctor: every single person you ever thought was a hero is actually a terrible person. Who could have guessed that? Not me, not you, not anyone close to these people who have been warning us for years and only just now got heard because said person is all of a sudden famous. No certainly not them. It’s Nikola Tesla’s Night of Terror written by Nina Métivier and aired on January 19, 2020.

    Multiple hams at once, just all over.

    I wonder what the other 54 orphan planets look like. Do you think they look anything like bombed out earth in the future? Maybe the bombed out shell of Gallifrey was an orphan planet too, and then it become Gallifrey. And the Timelords took its orphan status away. They adopted it. What a good society!

    Direct Podcast Download

    It’s like a science fair but worse.

    Weirdly enough there’s actually a new James Bond movie coming out this year. As in like, for the first time in 5 years there’s a James Bond movie coming to theatres. How do I know it was 5 years? Well because I took my dad for his birthday to see it, and it was a monumental age (no, I won’t tell you what it was though). It’s Spyfall written by Chris Chibnall and aired on January 1 and 5, 2020.

    Show-notes:
    13:12: The Doctor Who wiki surprisingly doesn’t have a page on left handedness. So instead here’s the page on dates.
    22:30: Outside of G.I. Joe, Cobra is like an Austrian military police unit, an Indian police force, and a Serbian military police force.
    24:04: It’s not pinned anymore because @Prof_Quiteamess deleted it ;_;
    30:38: It was actually steganography. Stenography is something else. According to the Doctor wiki, steganography was only ever mentioned in this episode.
    32:11: Here’s Lenny Henry playing the Doctor in 1985. I’ve actually seen this before, but I completely forgot about it.
    1:08:30: Check out Triple Play: A Movie Trilogy Podcast, that podcast that we’re finally doing again.
    1:14:36: Also check out our other podcasts Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast and Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast.
    1:39:20: This is just copied straight from the Doctor Who wiki: “Editing for the DVD release was completed by the Doctor Who Restoration Team. The most prominent of these edits is to the serial’s final scenes, when the freighter crashes into prehistoric earth. The edit mainly revises the scene so that, instead of the TARDIS’s monitor showing a still image of the freighter, followed by several bright flashes (meant to represent the explosion of the impact), the screen actually shows the freighter slamming into the Earth, with the explosion being represented by a pulsating light over the impact site.” This obviously has to do with the DVD release, which came out in like 2003 (so not exactly recently). But I think this might’ve been what people were discussing when it came to the blu ray.
    2:16:52: Here’s the discussion that JB mentioned.
    2:19:39: And of course just check out WHO 37 in general, and also check out BAT 77 too.

    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 54 minutes and 14 seconds

    Should old Doctors be forgotten?

    I only just processed that this was the only episode of Doctor Who that aired in 2019. The one and only single one. Which is a little weird because 2019 was so damn long, at least in my life. And throughout that long span of time there was only one single episode of Doctor Who to keep me sane. Pity. It’s Resolution written by Chris Chibnall and aired on January 1, 2019.

    Show-notes:
    9:16: More on old style and new style dates. Surprise surprise, we (I) got most of this wrong. Also I mentioned how the shift affected the dates that early U.S. presidents were inaugurated on, but the shift actually came way before that.

  • 288: 6 Years Later and Still Nobody Cares (It Takes You Away)

    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 52 minutes and 22 seconds

    This is the most depressing thing I’ve ever heard.

    I’ve always wanted to go to Norway. Never really had the opportunity to do so though. Which is a bummer because it always looked nice. I wonder why this episode is set in Norway and not Sweden. A good question for another time. It’s It Takes You Away, written by Ed Hime and aired on December 1, 2018.

    Show-notes:
    2:12: This is the first time we’ve seen Norway on the tv show, but it’s been in comics and audios before. Bad Wolf Bay was in Norway, but it was in the alternate world.
    9:35: Here’s the trailer for The Silence. Cash-in on “A Quiet Place” or not, this was actually based on a book that came out in 2015.
    21:43: Video of Gordon Ramsay and James May eating fermented shark
    24:47: Unfortunately I couldn’t find any behind-the-scenes info on the antizone. I did find this somewhat-interesting video that kind of goes behind the scenes on this episode. It’s not too great, but yeah.
    27:57: It was Spinoza, and the concept was called natura naturans.

    Something something the Crucible is actually about the Red Scare. Well not actually. It was really about the witch hunts, but it’s supposed to be heavily about the Red Scare. Drawing parallels between the two really. But as Kiyan says “intentionality doesn’t matter” so in many ways you could see it as whatever you want. Maybe to you it’s just a play about the witch hunts. It’s The Witchfinders, written by Joy Wilkinson and aired on November 25, 2018.

    The greatest “thing” that’s ever been in Doctor Who.

    I feel really bad about not knowing anything about partition, but watching this episode for the second time has actually prompted me to look into it more. It seems to have served the Doctor Who purpose of introducing an audience to an entirely new topic that they had no idea about. Does that make it the most successful Doctor Who episode of all time? Stay tuned to find out. It’s Demons of the Punjab, written by Vinay Patel and aired on November 11, 2018.

    We call it sky surfing here.

    When I heard the name of this episode I kind of imagined it as an almost Kobayashi Maru situation. You know in Star Trek, it’s the no win situation that Kirk cheats at to win, and that cheating is the reason he gets given the captain’s chair because they really like his initiative in… cheating… I guess? But then it turned out to not be that at all. It’s The Tsuranga Conundrum, written by Chris Chibnall and aired on November 4, 2018.

    All of America is the twitspace.

    I just realized how weird it is that the villain in a UK story is an American.

    This week we’re joined by Argy yet again to travel back in time to Montgomery. To be fair absolutely none of us have been to Montgomery before, so it’s a bit of a new experience for all of us. I’ll be honest I think I can say with some mild certainty that most of our audience hasn’t been to Montgomery either. So it’s new for you too.

    Why do I have this weird feeling that there’s an episode of Doctor Who with this name?

A whole full 25 minute episode that we condensed into a whole 21 minute podcast episode. Amazing that’s a whole 4 minutes we saved you.

    Doctor Who must not go on.

    When I saw the title for this episode the first time I was convinced it was some sort of monument to Casper the friendly ghost. Like it was going to be something super cool about this cartoon character. In hindsight I’m starting to think that would be the weirdest crossover in existence, but I kind of want to see if they could make it work. It’s The Ghost Monument, written by Chris Chibnall and aired on October 14, 2018.

    This is the end of everything.

    It’s kind of bittersweet saying goodbye to so many things that have kind of become staples so to speak of the show for us. Stephen Moffat, Murray Gold, Mark Gatiss, Peter Capaldi. All of them are leaving for us now. This almost feels like it might be one of the biggest changes in the show that we’ve ever experienced.

    Don’t knock it till you try it.

    I read a pretty good poem recently, but it wasn’t in any way related to this episode. I just thought it was a good poem. It was called “Go to the Limits of Your Longing.” Rilke wrote it.

    Even closing my eyes is no escape from the horror that is the drashigs.

    If I could subsist on light, I totally would if I’m being honest. I mean, now that I think about it, that’s kind of what plants do right? They eat light and then they turn it into food and survive. So does that mean the main enemy of this story is a plant? Food for thought. It’s The Eaters of Light written by Rona Munro and aired on June 17, 2017.

    Since Disney owns nearly everything I can’t imagine this crossover is far behind.

    Given how many times Mars has appeared on the show it should be pretty easy to assemble some sort of timeline of the Martian Empire right? Also, wasn’t that killer water that killed everything it ever touched in the polar ice caps? The one we learned about in Waters of Mars? Shouldn’t the gang be violently ill and trying to consume each other during almost the entirety of this episode? It’s Empress of Mars, written by Mark Gatiss and aired on June 10, 2017.

    As opposed to Blink 2019 edition.

    It’s surprising to me that an episode so clearly about propaganda actually didn’t cause much of a splash at all when it landed. Kind of seems like everyone shrugged and looked right past it, even though it explicitly mentions a few people that this episode is clearly sending up. Weird.

    Might be from the radioactive cool whip factory.

    Did you ever notice how it’s always “thin ice” but never “thick ice.” You can never have thick ice, I guess, which is weird since most ice like glaciers are pretty thick. But then again I guess it depends if you measure thick or thin vertically or horizontally. It’s Thin Ice, written by Sarah Dollard and aired on April 29, 2017.

    I can think of worse ways to spend my time.

    I just watched that Joker movie and now every time I see the word Smile I think of that song that tells you to Smile all the time. You know, Smile if you want to, Smile around the world, the B-52s one. I’m pretty sure that’s called Smile too. Wait no hang on that might be Roam. It’s Smile, written by Frank Cottrell Boyce and aired on April 22, 2017.

    1:16 The wikipedia page for the City of Arts and Sciences has some pretty good pictures of the real thing.

    29:09 Here’s an example of speed reading words in the same place on the screen.
    40:08 The 100 is a fairly new post-apocalyptic tv series.

    Oh right, the Super La Brea Tar Cops. Of course, how could I miss that?

    When I was a kid one of the professions I really wanted to be was a pilot. At first it was a doctor, but then I really wanted to be a pilot. Wait, a Doctor, a Pilot, my life growing up was basically wanting to be in Doctor Who. Chris, Chibnall, call me dude I have no agent and I work for exposure.

    Truly, the greatest Doctor Who story of all time.

    There’s been a lot of Christmas on the mind recently. There’s even a Christmas scene in The Pilot, so that’s like three weeks worth of Christmas for us, which is quite overwhelming if we’re completely honest. But hey, at least no more for another three months. It’s The Return of Doctor Mysterio, written by Steven Moffat and aired on December 25, 2016.

    Have you seen Johnny though? He looks like he’s always in Wonderland.

    I’ll be honest, I probably won’t even have one husband in my life. So to hear that River has like, 3 at least, and really 15 if you count all 13 incarnations of the Doctor as different people is really impressive to me. I wonder if they all get along with each other. Pretty sure at least two incarnations of the Doctor don’t. It’s The Husbands of River Song, written by Steven Moffat and aired on December 25, 2015.

    As opposed to a map show from literally any other country on Earth.

    Recently I’ve actually become a bit attached to the crows in my neighborhood. I’ll be moving soon and I’m actually a little sad you know? The crows here just have such friendly personalities I’m going to really miss them. On the flip side, I’ve never actually met a raven, so if you’ve got one you want to share you know where I am. Actually no you don’t, but the point stands. It’s Face the Raven, written by Sarah Dollard  and aired on November 21, 2015.

    Coming soon to Trust Your Doctor?

    I purchased my Morpheus system from 3P Enterprises, and it was delivered in quick time. This is the only good thing I can say about the system. Within one month of purchase I’ve started to hear the Morpheus song, even when I’m in my personal sensory deprivation tank. Two months in and I’ve started to notice monsters in the corner of my eyes. My hands are starting to look and more like lobster claws. My significant other has turned into an orchid. 0/10 would not recommend for skipping sleep, although 10/10 replacement for hallucinogenics. It’s Sleep No More, written by Mark Gatiss and aired on  November 14, 2015.

    Show-notes:
    12:12 The Raven by Edgar Allen Poe.
    12:40 I can’t believe you’ve done this.
    13:00 Jeremiah Denton’s pow video again.
    16:48 If you’ve read through My Immortal multiple times like me and want something new in the bad fanfiction genre then check out Sonic High School. It’s actually funnier than My Immortal. There’s also an expanded universe of sequels written by DarkDoomFireMaster himself.
    19:05 Check out Zenith, our Blake’s 7 podcast.
    24:56 Vin Diesel played Adrian Caparzo in Saving Private Ryan.
    30:04 It was John Henry.
    42:07 It was As Above, So Below. I’ve never watched this but it might be good.

    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 15 minutes and 11 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Society needs to end.

    Ok let’s take a moment to consider how weird it would be to have a Zygon procreate with a human. Does that create some sort of Zygon-human hybrid? And if they are can they shape shift, do they still have that ability? Or maybe they can’t but if they can’t then what differentiates them from regular humans? This is hurting my head. It’s The Zygon Invasion & The Zygon Inversion, written by Peter Harness & Steven Moffat and aired on October 31 and November 7, 2015.

    Show-notes:

    I’m pretty sure we’ve had a really similar title to this before.

    I remember when this episode title was announced a lot of people were convinced that Amy was going to be in this. Because the title bore some superficial resemblance to the Girl Who Waited. Looking at it now that’s kind of a completely baffling assumption, but you know I see where it comes from. It’s The Girl Who Died & The Woman Who Lived, written by Jamie Mathieson, Steven Moffat and Catherine Tregenna and aired on October 17 and 24, 2015.

    Show-notes:

  • 262: Your Mind on Memes (Under the Lake & Before the Flood)

    4 August 2019 (3:57pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 days, 1 hours, 13 minutes and 8 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    I need one of those pictures that shows the faces of people on different drugs with one for memes.

    I’m disconcerted by the pace at which we’re speeding through this season, if I’m being honest. It feels like my life is wizzing past my eyes as I die. It reminds me a lot of season 7, which we did in 4 weeks even though the season itself would have aired over something like 12. Or probably, more, if I’m being honestly I’m not actually sure how long it would have take because I can’t remember if they were airing two episodes a week or one at that point in the show’s history. It’s Under the Lake & Before the Flood, written by Toby Whithouse  and aired on October 3 and 10, 2015.

    Show-notes:
    4:40 Brendan from Flight Through Entirety gives his bottom 5 Doctor Who stories in this video.
    6:23 The Rescue
    14:30 Mark Gatiss wrote Night Terrors.
    26:29 I googled bootstrap paradox for you.
    33:03 You have 5 seconds to explain why you’re not following Ringo Starr on twitter.
    35:15 Foie gras is a food made from force feeding geese or ducks. Balut is an almost-hatched egg eaten whole in the shell.
    36:19 The Fisher King is from Arthurian legends.
    46:05 Derrida’s scene from Ghost Dance
    53:39 Karena (Rigsy’s aunt in Flatline) was actually a deaf character just last season.
    58:00 Limited Inc by Derrida. From what I can tell, these are his ideas, not quotes or paraphrases from someone else. Also I was reading this from some notes I took when I read the book, so it’s not verbatim what Derrida wrote, but it’s on page 15 of the pdf I linked.
    1:07:03 The events we talk about here are the Goldsboro crash and the Palomares crash.
    1:07:55 AIR-2 Genie is an unguided nuke that the U.S. developed to be shot from planes.
    1:08:04 The Davy Crockett was a portable nuclear missile launcher.

    Everything is a throwback, nothing is original.

    What better time to completely revamp the format for the podcast than a moment in the show when absolutely nothing changed in the show? It makes total and complete sense to me, I’m actually not being facetious right now at all. Less things that the audience has to adjust to, you know? It’s The Magician’s Apprentice & The Witch’s Familiar, written by Steven Moffat and aired on September 19 and 26, 2015.

    Show-notes:
    4:51 Sonic screwdriver count. And death count. And character kill count. Due for an update like everything on our site.
    6:10 The Morphos were from Keys of Marinus.
    7:12 Footage of Getting Over It. Weird that the guy who made this is named Bennet like one of the characters in this episode. Also Frog Fractions should still be playable on this page if you have flash player I think.

    Now for the Trust Your Doctor Code. Five words: The Rock is The Doctor.

    For once we can say we have a special “Christmas in July” episode of Trust Your Doctor. Because by some weird coincidence this goes out right near the end of July. Not quite on the 25th, or in the middle either, but it’s close enough. Is this the closest that Doctor Who has ever come to a Christmas in July? I’d like to think so and because of that I’m claiming the first for Trust Your Doctor. It’s Last Christmas, written by Steven Moffat and aired on December 25, 2014.

    Show-notes:
    8:59 I’M GONNA TAKE MY HEARSE TO THE OLD TOWN ROAD.
    12:10 It was William Blake.
    12:40 Here’s a Jungle Book fanfic that uses The Tyger as an epigraph. Next best thing.
    15:25 Relive the magic of Troll 2 and Never Ending Story 3 vicariously through us on Triple Play, our movie trilogy podcast.
    19:30 Things like “Jake Paulers.” (shudder)
    19:54 Merry Xmas Everybody by Slade. Can’t believe I’m being forced to listen to Christmas music in July.
    25:53 Started way before Freud.
    31:25 Gallifreyan alphabet guide.
    43:02 You can listen to The Memory Cheats from Big Finish. You can also listen to The Memory Cheats podcast from The Memory Cheats.
    50:29 It’s been 84 years since I last got the opportunity to link to this meme.

    Who interrogates soldiers? The Hague?

    Danny Pink you’re charged with war crimes, killing innocents, and committing genocide post mortum. We would dishonorably discharge you, but you seem so hell bent on being a soldier that we thought a more fitting punishment would be to just do nothing to you. You’ll forever be a soldier. How’s that for hell? It’s Dark Water and Death in Heaven, written by Steven Moffat and aired on November 1 and 8, 2014.

    I think cockroaches are susceptible to pretty much any other form of death though.

    Do cockroaches actually live in forests? I was just thinking now, since London is a forest now, does that mean all the cockroaches are dead? Or did they just decide “hey what the hell let’s throw a party, the world just became 100% more habitable for us last night!” Stay tuned… It’s In the Forest of the Night, written by Frank Cottrell Boyce and aired on October 25, 2014.
