Mark Cockram from England is with us via Skype, and he is joining Repeater to watch an old Doctor Who episode from 1979 called “Horns of Nimon.”
But first we pause episode #2 for a word from our sponsor … via Daggor … coached by Repeater.
Daggor discovers Ky Slim’s foley desk
MEMORY TRIGGER STAR WARS FIGURE of the HOUR 33: Daggor pulls out the AT-ST Driver … the chicken walker guy. (yeah, we didn’t do one in hour 32!)
Mark and Repeater return to the Doctor Who “Horns of Nimon” episode 2 commentary where they left off from the end of last hour. They talk about the Doctor tinkering, aim for the crotch, watching the extras, simple practical effects, Mark explains the national theater, Sir Laurence Olivier in Doctor Who?, nonchalant evil thugs, why did JNT turn down charming ideas? Tom Baker’s last year, the changing door-opening control knob, Mark tells a Beethoven joke, Repeater wants Big Finish to do his back story.
Mark reveals that he bought some comic books (to make Conduit smile), they were Doctor Who comics (to make Repeater smile), and explains the Humble Bundle concept.
Repeater and Mark ponder Big Finish and its many ranges … the costs?
Daggor is appreciated
Episode #3 of “Horns of Nimon” … and we talk about Tom Baker’s first season costume, Seth let’s everyone know he’s the alpha, Beethoven is an angry baby, the set designers watched “Ark in Space”, Bugs Bunny vs the bull, Albuquerque, the round-faced extra is straight out of Peanuts, space collars, chavs, Burberry, Kraftwerk, high heeled stretch, no drapes in space, Aneth / Austria?, GOT IT!, psycho-spore? awkward hand tool on Skonos, one lever does it all, what’s on Soldeed’s head?, old Hell’s Angels, Repeater turns up the volume so Daggor can hear the Nimon roar, adorable hide and seek, the old middle-aged football plot in US sitcoms, is Princess Teacup pretty? Mark gets thrown off Skype and calls back, bulls and hard-boiled eggs, I’ve seen 3 Nimons, awkward cosplay moments don’t apply to Doctor Who monsters, JNT’s costume demands, you meddling fool, the Colin Baker cliffhanger.
Mark congratulates Daggor for sitting through “Horns of Nimon” without sound
Conduit is back from break
Episode #4 of “Horns of Nimon” … and we talk about the last time we’ll see the time tunnel intro, the art of ret-conning, the plastic horns — crap or cool?, budget Luke Skywalker, volume is turned up to hear Soldeed’s evil laugh, Dengar head, Bossk in Empire Strikes Back is wearing an astronaut costume from old Doctor Who episodes, oh my prophetic soul, gravitic anomalizer, shooting in the chest to make a point, Top of the Pops and Soul Train, Kasey Kasem did a walk-about in Washington state, whaaaaat?, Daggor loves the Nimon roar, embrace your inner Nimon, kids hide the same way in Britain and America, rain makes corn, hiding behind the transparent shower door, protecting your monster crotch (hung like a Nimon), the short marriage of Tom Baker and Lalla Ward, Richard Dawkins, why do they keep shooting in the crotch? Bugs Bunny and bull who swallows the shotgun, Repeater will miss the colorful scarf, hard for alien bulls to keep your balance in heels, when will the Seth action figure come out?
