DIDDLY DUM PODCAST 106 – Writing by Kermittee

Initials Short

The traditions of our Christmas episode have been slightly derailed by the timing of Series 11. But, having looked at “It Takes You Away” and “The Battle of Ranskoor Avenue”, we finally get stuck into some Christmas games, including of course our fifth Christmas Gold Run.

DIDDLY DUM PODCAST 100a – From Bagpuss to Algernon (part one)

At long last, here’s our 100th podcast. Quite a landmark for us so we’ve chosen to make it a nostalgic one, looking back over our last nearly five years. We’ve put together a montage of clips of our least worst bits and we’ve been very self-indulgent. Which makes it a rather long podcast, even for us. That’s why we’ve split it into 2 halves – Episode 100a and Episode 100b – which you can download separately rather than trying to cope with one whacking great audio file.
