    Audio 28: Theatre Theater (Redacted)

    Audio 28: Theatre Theater (Redacted)

    We all now belong to the Church of Sil.

    Look, it’s a podcast about old doctor who characters coming back and appearing in the most random way possible. How can you not expect that Sil would make an appearance? He’s basically the greatest character that’s ever graced our television screens. And I mean that most sincerely. It’s Redacted, written by Juno Dawson, Catherine Brinkworth, Ella Watts, Sasha Sienna, Ken Cheng, Àjoké Ibironke, Doris Sutherland, and David Barnes, and released between April 12 and June 19, 2022.



    Show-notes:

    6:24: If you want to listen to Redacted yourself without pirating it, you can listen on BBC Sounds.

    10:25: Remember this statement about shots, because Kiyan’s going to forget he said it. (Editor’s note: I don’t know what this means.)

    10:58: The Blue Box Podcast is a podcast about Doctor Who.

    11:42: I did it anyway.

    14:14: Partners in Crime. The name of the episode was Partners in Crime.

    19:50: I’m not even going to bother trying to find this thread because I won’t be able to.

    23:00: Don’t worry, the TARDIS wiki has an extensive page on Clive Finch.

    26:27: The disappearing hospital was seen in Smith and Jones.

    29:14: I feel like most of the links in these show-notes are going to be TARDIS wiki links, but anyway, here’s Oliver Morgenstern. I was also mildly wrong, the actor for Oliver also did not return for this audio.

    36:40:  The Larry Nightingale “ARG” is pretty wild all things considered.

    37:20: “Ergodic literature” refers to texts that take effort on the part of the reader to engage with.

    47:09: Let’s all remember The Zygon Invasion/Inversion thanks to the TARDIS wiki.

    50:55: Remember what I told you to remember earlier?

    58:36: IF you want to hear us talk about Firefly for some reason, check out Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast, our classic sci-fi podcast, where we covered that show last year (i.e. 2021).

    1:00:40: Also check out Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast, our Blake’s 7 podcast, cause why not?

    1:07:40: List of Sil’s Appearances. There are far too many of these if you ask me.

    1:10:00: I would normally cut sneezes out but the Sil spinoff necessitated leaving Kiyan’s blessings of us all in the recording.

    1:21:10: SILOET (the SHADO reference) is actually an alleged evolution of UNIT later in the Doctor Who timeline. Also lmao at Dylan’s pronunciation here. It’s “silhouette” lol.

    1:28:06: Kick some...

    Audio 26: Comes in Clutch ft. Steven Shinder (The Spectre of Lanyon Moor)

    Audio 26: Comes in Clutch ft. Steven Shinder (The Spectre of Lanyon Moor)

    I think Kiyan spent a little too much time on knowyourmeme this week.

    So one time I was driving my car away from the shop after replacing my transmission fluid and Dom Toretto pulled up next to me. He rolled down his window, and I obliged the unspoken invitation to do the same. He had been looking for a challenge, he said, and offered to race me. I agreed, of course, reluctantly. Long story short, I won. Guess you could say my transmission came in clutch. Speaking of which, this week we’re coming in clutch with The Spectre of Lanyon Moor written by Nicolas Pegg and released in June 2000.



    Show-notes:

    3:48: I thought it was spelled “fugu” but it’s spelled “fogou.” (Editor’s note: I thought it was spelled “fondue.”)

    4:48: Good news, I have the cover for you right here.

    9:23: Good news Once again we refer to The Time Scales for these numbers.

    23:00:The mounds were burial sites apparently.

    29:07:Check out Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast, our Blake’s 7 podcast.

    30:50:Believe it or not, I found the TikTok I was referring to. (Warning: watching while British may cause extreme distress.)

    37:15:Screw you guys, I’m going home.

    38:22:They do use imperial units in the UK, and Kiyan and Dylan are both correct. Road signs are required by law to be in feet/miles, and the common British vernacular uses imperial units, i.e. feet for height and pounds for food. Read more in this BBC article.

    58:36: Based means being yourself. Not being scared of what people think about you. Not being afraid to do what you wanna do. Being positive.

    1:02:35: Check out our old episode on The Nightmare Fair I guess.

    1:23:06: Airzone Solution novelisation

    1:26:57: By “you” he meant Kiyan. (Editor’s note: I don’t know what this is referring to.)

    Audio 25: Martian Instinct Moments (Red Dawn)

    We call those MIMs in the business.

    I can’t even have any Earth Instinct Moments. You ever look at a bug and go “huh it’s 4 inches long and it’s bright red with black stripes, it’s probably harmless?” Well good news, you just had an Earth Instinct Moment. And you’re doing better than I am. It’s Red Dawn written by Justin Richards and released in May 2000.



    Show-notes:

    4:00: As usual, here’s the Time Scales for you.

    9:45:Pretty sure we’ve talked about this before but Peter Davison is Peter Moffet’s stage name.

    10:57:Feel like I’m always linking the covers of these things for you.

    28:01:We all love the Argosy.

    35:62:Wikipedia summarizes the Brookings Report, but if you feel adventurous you can read the entire thing if you want.

    54:26:Check out our coverage of Star Cops on our classic sci-fi podcast, Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast.

    56:06: Look at me, just gonna link to the Big Finish FAQ directly. (Editor’s note: proud of you.)

    1:03:55: I forgot we read Spiral Scratch for our Sixth Doctor retrospective. What a tragedy that turned out to be. Here’s the cover in all its squiggly awfulness by the way.

    Audio 24: The Need to Read (The Genocide Machine)

    Audio 24: The Need to Read (The Genocide Machine)

    It’s kind of like the need for speed but more academic.

    So once upon a time I opened up a book. And I wanted to just go ahead and read it and be all chill. I sat down, I lit a candle. I fluffed up my couch cushion. And just as I started to read I felt an itching. A need. A need for cheese. It’s The Genocide Machine written by Mike Tucker and released in April 2000.



    Show-notes:

    7:05: I’ll link to the Dalek Empire wiki page for those curious at home (or wherever you are).

    10:52: Mike Tucker’s wiki page lists all his Doctor Who credits and it’s quite extensive.

    14:48: For more on Terry Nation and characters named Tarrant, check out our Blake’s 7 podcast, Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast.

    24:23: I tried to find some information on BBC oversight over Big Finish but I couldn’t. Sad. (Editor’s note: read the last word in Trump’s voice in my head. Sad.)

    14:23: One panel comic

    Audio 23: Hot Chocolate Technology (The Marian Conspiracy)

    Audio 23: Hot Chocolate Technology (The Marian Conspiracy)

    Damn, now I want Hot Chocolate.

    Conspiracies. Can’t live with ’em, can’t live without coming up with a new one every 4.6 seconds. Well, maybe that’s just me. Or maybe, just maybe, it’s just this week’s story, coming your way via our way courtesy once again of Big Finish. It’s all about conspiracies – actually just one conspiracy in particular, that conspiracy being The Marian Conspiracy written by Jacqueline Raynor and released on March 12, 2000.

    What titles would we give each Doctor if they were named instead of numbered? (This is in response to an email we got.)

    Here’s my (Kiyan) picks:

    1. The Black and White Doctor

    2. The Second Black and White Doctor

    3. The First Not Black and White Doctor

    4. Thete

    5. The Third Not Black and White Doctor

    6. Colin

    7. Sylvester Stallone

    8. The Doctor

    9. The The Older Something Is The Stronger It Is Doctor

    10. The David Tennant Doctor

    11. The War Doctor

    War. The Old-Ass One Foot in the Grave Doctor

    12. The Caecilius Doctor

    13. The RIP Doctor Who 1963-2017 Doctor

    Fugitive. The Mysterious Doctor



    Show-notes:

    4:00: Pretty sure Dylan just said this for the title.

    5:10: As always, here’s the timescales webpage for The Marian Conspiracy.

    5:50:It was The Land of the Dead. Lmao. Also, I was wrong about Power. It was the second episode of series D. The episode I was referring to was Horizon. Oops.

    11:22: I was, of course, wrong again. It was the Tenth Doctor story New Earth.

    13:56: Can’t believe I’m unironically linking Horace Slughorn in a Doctor Who podcast.

    26:50: I’m just reading Mary’s wikipedia page at this point.

    41:20: The cover for The Marian Conspiracy is on the timescales page above, but here it is solo anyway. And here’s the meme, for the millionth time in our show notes, for reference.

    1:03:08: Here’s the article I’m reading off of. (Editor’s note: I think this is the right link. Either way, the information is there. I just don’t know whether it’s exactly where Dylan got it.) (Dylan’s Note: Yep that’s right)

    1:06:29: Our ep on Bang-Bang-a-Boom

    1:11:12: I spent the promised 5 minutes and couldn’t find it. 🙁

    1:18:39: The Curator

“Listen”

Having listened to every “main” episode (the ones focusing on the onscreen episodes), I can confirm that this is a podcast. Not only that, but I can confirm that this is a good podcast. Dylan and Kiyan go on some of the best tangents in the universe as they break down the plots of each episode. These guys really get Doctor Who. They come up with such good ideas that they should be the showrunners someday.

I’m enjoying the podcast

First I found there Blake seven podcast, when I finish that I started listening to trust your doctor.
Thanks to progressive blindness, I can no longer re-watch episodes of shows I enjoyed last century.
I’m enjoying the trip down memory lane via your podcast.
Don’t bicker too much! :-)

Dull

Lazy and scattershot. The podcasters appear to do little to no research.
