It’s July 1969, and we find ourselves sitting around with our new friend Maxwell Coviello, stroking guns and watching the moon landing on telly. It’s time for the end of the Swinging Sixties and the start of the Shooting-our-alien-overlords-in-the-face Seventies, in Day of the Moon.
Notes and links
Early in this episode, Brendan alludes to the title of Jon Pertwee’s autobiography Moon Boots and Dinner Suits, published in 1985 and available in remainder bins basically nowhere at all at this point, I imagine.
Nathan is aware that there were phones around well before World War II. No need to at him.
Brendan mentions the Doctor Who Magazine comic Ground Zero, a famously controversial story which features the kidnapping of the Doctor’s companions by aliens for nefarious purposes. Friend-of-the-podcast Josh Snares has done a motion comic adaptation, which you can find on YouTube.
Picks of the week
Todd recommends RuPaul’s AJ and the Queen, in which a down-on-her-luck drag queen and a ten-year-old girl travel around the US spreading love and acceptance wherever they go.
Brendan wants you to listen to the Big Finish Blakes 7 series Crossfire, featuring the late Jacqueline Pearce’s final appearance as Servalan.
Maxwell wants you to play Shin Megami Tensei 3: Nocturne, a classic RPG set in a post-apocalyptic world, which has been remastered and re-released in HD for the Switch. Shin Megami Tensei V will be released later this year.
Nathan takes the opportunity to remind us of the benefits of going outside.
