Babylon Podcast #70: Comes the Inquisitor (Season 2)

Welcome to Show #70!

Tim and Summer ask Jeffrey about his Mexico trip, and whether or not he was truly investigating the dwindling agave crops there, and Jeff lets us know about some possible upcoming interview guests for the show.

Deep Geeking: This week, Tim and Summer talk about “Comes the Inquisitor”. The geeking runs long, because there are many theories about the methods and motives of the Vorlons for sending in a self-professed killer to test the motivations of others who aspire to greatness in the Vorlons’ quest again the Shadows.

Listener Feedback: Remember, the tag is officially spelled “boohkie”, all because Google kept pulling up websites for bookmakers. Make a note of it.

Is the Babylon Podcast spinning off its own audio drama fanfic? You listen and decide.

Your feedback does matter, and is welcome! You can call us, or email us and tell us what you think… and likely hear it played or read on the show. Please try to keep the voicemail comments as brief as possible.

Shameless related begging: Summer’s working to convince any publisher to do an essay collection on Babylon 5. If you’d be interested in buying one if they did do a B5 collection, let Summer know, either here in comments, or over in the Babylon Podcast forums.

There’s a box of Babylon 5 novels sitting here, books that were rescued from unknown fates at used bookstores in his area by Brad from PodCulture. The B5 library collection grows… if you have a request, send it in.

    Re: Babylon 5 pod cast.

    The BBC has a long tradition of turning its tv dramas into radio dramas, this fed into the making of audio books on CD. New CD episodes of “Sapphire and Steel” and “The Tomorrow People” are being made under licence by

    As well as buying a Doctor Who CD at £11.50 (approx $23.00) a subscription to download 6 episodes costs £70.00 (approx $140.00)

    Warner Brothers Audio may wish to make any pod casts itself or they may treat it as a piece of merchandising.

  2. New “Sapphire and Steel” and “Tomorrow People”? I’m so there!

    Which reminds me, I still haven’t picked up Tomorrow People set #4 yet. Maybe I should go put that on my Amazon Wish List…

    Re: Pat Tallman commenting on an episode

    In the pod cast of Divided Loyalties’ Deep Geeking it was mentioned that Patricia Tallman’s comments may be interesting. Super Lyta returns in 5 episodes time for “Passing Through Gethsemane”. Pat did some special effects in that episode. I see that Ms Tallman is filming two movies she may wish to talk about.

  4. I see at Kosh has been added to the supporting cast. It gives both the voice and body actors.

  5. Did anyone else watch the first airing of Inquisitor. The one where Sheridan gets the location of Sebastian’s little spree bass ackwards?

    JMS admitted to his mistake, and they fixed it with ADR for the second run. That’s why, when you watch carefuly, Sheridan’s mouth says WEST, but the voice says EAST!


    Info at Lurker’s guide:

  6. Indeed…I was there, at the dawning of the third age of mankind, and saw the original version!! I get a chuckle every time I see that edit.

  7. I, too, was there and, as a born Londoner, was left more open-mouthed by that whopper than the revelation of Sebastian’s identity (which I’d already been led to by the previously dropped breadcrumbs. I seem to remember saying “only as… Jack” along with Wayne Alexander.)
