Episode 211: The talons of Weng-Chiang/ El Camino

Martyn and Chris discuss the Doctor Who episode, The talons of Weng-Chiang. They also discuss the recent recreation of Mission to the unknown, by Lancashire University.

After that, Gerrod and Martyn then discuss El-Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie.

The Talons of Weng-Chiang is the sixth and final serial of the 14th season of the British science fiction television series Doctor Who, which was first broadcast in six weekly parts on BBC One from 26 February to 2 April 1977. In the serial, which is set in 19th century London, the 51st century criminal Magnus (Michael Spice) travels to the city and poses as an ancient Chinese god to find his missing time machine.

El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie (or simply El Camino) is a 2019 American neo-westerncrime thriller film that serves as an epilogue to the television series Breaking Bad. Series creator Vince Gilligan wrote, directed, and produced the film, while Aaron Paul reprised his role as Jesse Pinkman. The plot follows what happens to Pinkman following the events of the series finale. Several actors, including Jesse Plemons, Krysten Ritter, Jonathan Banks, and Bryan Cranston, reprise their original roles from the series, all of them appearing in flashback sequences. El Camino was also the final film to feature Robert Forster, who died on the day of its release.

Episode 210:Pulp Fiction

Gerrod gives up 20 minutes of his lunch time, to discuss Pulp Fiction with Martyn.

Pulp Fiction is a 1994 crime drama, written and directed by Quentin Tarantino, who conceived it with Roger Avary. Starring John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Willis, Tim Roth, Ving Rhames, and Uma Thurman, it tells several stories of criminal Los Angeles. The title refers to the pulp magazines and hardboiled crime novels popular during the mid-20th century, known for their graphic violence and punchy dialogue.

The lives of two mob hitmen, a boxer, a gangster and his wife, and a pair of diner bandits intertwine in four tales of violence and redemption.

Episode 204: Shaft (2019)

Martyn and Gerrod only had 15mins spare when they recorded this, so here is a very brief review of Shaft (2019).

John Shaft Jr. may be an FBI cyber security expert, but to uncover the truth behind his best friend’s untimely death, he needs an education that only his dad can provide. Absent throughout his childhood, the legendary John Shaft agrees to help his son navigate the heroin-infested underbelly of Harlem, N.Y. Besides, the locked and loaded Shaft has his own score to settle — both professional and personal.

Episode 202: In the Octagon

Very quick episode this week, as recording was interuppted by a phone call.

Martyn and Gerrod discuss actors 31 years older than them, that they’d like to fight in the Octagon.

The only research done was typing ’68 year old actors’ into Google and reading what first came up. So it may not be 100% accurate.

Episode 201:Torchwood-Sargasso

In which Martyn flies solo and brings you a review of the latest Torchwood release by Big Finish.

The seas of planet Earth are choked by plastic. Plastic that no-one has a use for and no-one can get rid of. Rhys Williams finds himself stranded on a container ship in a sea of debris. People on board are dying. Because, luckily, someone’s found a solution to Earth’s polluted waters. The Nestene Consciousness can never have too much plastic.

Episode 200: Doctor Who TV Movie

Martyn is joined by stand-up comedian, Sam Michael. The pair discuss the 1996 Paul McGann Doctor Who TV movie.

The Doctor Who TV movie, also known as “The enemy within”-is a 1996 continuation of the long-running British science fiction series, Doctor Who. It was developed as a co-production between BBC Worldwide, Universal Studios, 20th Century Fox and the American TV network Fox.

The film was the first attempt to revive Doctor Who following its suspension in 1989. It was intended as a backdoor pilot for a new American-produced Doctor Who TV series. It introduced Paul McGann as the Eighth Doctor in his only televised appearance as the character until “The Night of the Doctor” in 2013 (though McGann has portrayed the Doctor also in various audio productions). It also marks the final appearance of Sylvester McCoy as the Seventh Doctor, the only appearance of Daphne Ashbrook as companion Grace Holloway, and the only appearance of Eric Roberts‘s version of The Master. Although a ratings success in the United Kingdom, the film did not fare well on American television and no series was commissioned. The series was later relaunched on the BBC in 2005.[1] The only Doctor Who episodes between the film and the new series were a 1999 spoof, Doctor Who and the Curse of Fatal Death, and a 2003 animation, Scream of the Shalka.

Although the film was primarily produced by different people than the 1963–1989 series and intended for an American audience, the producers chose not to produce a “re-imagining” or “reboot” of the series but rather a continuation of the original narrative. The production was filmed in Vancouver, British Columbia, to date the only episode of Doctor Who filmed in Canada.
