DIDDLY DUM PODCAST 051 – Podcasters Assemble 2

Citadel 4Hayden brings us the second in his occasional series of “Podcasters Assemble” where he chats to a dazzling international array of fellow Doctor Who podcasters and tries to understand what makes them tick.

This week, we hear Erika (for it is she) Ensign from the “Verity!” podcast, Marc (for it is he) Atkinson from the “Progtor Who” podcast, Christian (for it is he) Cawley from “The Podkast With a K” and Phil (for it is he) Cannon from the “Who’s He?” podcast.

You may by now have noticed that we’re pushing for the formal introduction of “(for it is s/he)” as a title for Doctor Who podcasters, the Jedi Knights of fandom. On the subject of which, we close this week’s podcast with a little tribute to another knight of the airwaves.

SHOWNOTES

(00:00:00) Our Pandemonium themed intro has been illustrated by friend of the show Simon (for it is he) Brett of the Blue Box Podcast who can claim to be one of the four original parents of the Diddly Dum Podcast. If we are the Prince Caspian of Doctor Who podcasting, just think of the Blue Boxers as Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy. Simon’s Facebook page can be found here and his website is here. The summit of his broadcasting career of course came in 2014 when he visited The Whoseum in Diddly Dum Podcast 017 (“Simon in the Land of Chalk Drawings”).

(00:02:04) Hayden’s first guest this week is Erika (for it is she) Ensign of the “Verity!” podcast.

(00:29:15) Hayden’s second guest this week is Marc (for it is he) Atkinson of the “Progtor Who” podcast and band Riversea.

(00:57:06) Hayden’s third guest this week is Christian (for it is he) Cawley of the “Podkast With a K”.

(01:21:38) Hayden’s fourth guest this week is Phil (for it is he) Cannon of the “Who’s He?” podcast.

(01:52:10) We round off this week’s podcast with a tribute to two men who have been lost to broadcasting since we recorded our last podcast. Few Doctor Who fans’ lives have not at some stage been touched by titan of the airwaves, Sir Terry Wogan. Terry encountered many stars of Doctor Who during his interviewing career and of course his years as the great helmsman of the BBC’s Children in Need. Terry interviews Colin Baker here and interviews Jon Pertwee here. “The Five Doctors” 20th anniversary special was broadcast in the UK on Children in Need night and, after the closing credits, Terry met the then current Doctor, Peter Davidson here. He met half the stars of Doctor Who during the 1985 Children in Need night here. Our musical tribute is a clip from Terry’s 1978 recording of “The Floral Dance” which reached Number 1 in the British charts. He tries to keep his face straight in this “Top of the Pops” appearance from the time. We also recently lost Ed “Stewpot” Stewart, DJ and (to Doc’s generation) presenter of “Crackerjack” (Crackerjack).

DIDDLY DUM PODCAST 050 – Shepherd’s Bush 90210

Collage books 3

The Four Faces of Delusion pick up from last week’s podcast on the TARGET novelisations by looking at the Doctor Who books published since 1989.

Being between jobs has really lit a fire under Matt who reveals that there’s little he doesn’t know about all these book ranges. This gives a well earned rest to Doc who knows bugger all about any of them.

Along the way, we learn how books kept Hayden from a life a crime and we hear of Matt’s visit to the roof of BBC Television Centre last week and meeting the great Graeme Harper while he was at it.

And of course we discuss the news that Chris Chibnall is to replace The Great Sage as showrunner.

DIDDLY DUM PODCAST 049 – Chris Achilleos Interview

achilleosWe mark the podcast’s 2nd birthday with an interview with titan of the TARGET Doctor Who books range Chris Achilleos. We build up to the interview by revisiting our memories of those novelisations and which bookshops we used to buy them from.

Along the way, Hayden reveals his first foray into crime, Doc is taken to Aladdin’s cave but not allowed to sample the treasures and Matt reveals that his grandmother went to school with Barry Letts. We even find out which TARGET book led Doc into a lifelong dislike of cockney sailor Ben Jackson.

We also celebrate Hayden finally buying a decent microphone.

DIDDLY DUM PODCAST 048 – A Happy New Year to All of You at Home

2015 GR Q1The Four Faces of Delusion break the podcasting fourth wall to wish all of their faithless listeners a very happy 2016 in this the delayed Christmas podcast.

Our podcasting heroes talk about their Christmas presents in general and Doctor Who/Dalek annuals in particular before reviewing “The Husbands of River Song” and then looking back on Series Nine as a whole.

As is now traditional for a Diddly Dum Christmas (i.e. it happened for the first time last year), Doc dons the mantle of the great Bob Holness to test Hayden and Matt’s memory of the 2015 podcasts (follow along on the Gold Run screen above).

In a triumph of investigatory fan journalism, the Diddly Dumbers break their exclusive scoop by revealing the names of the new writing duo who Steven Moffat claims will make our brains explode. Along the way, they also discuss the outrageously un-politically-correct content of 1970s annuals, the new “Curse of the Black Spot” lego pirate ship set, Sean Pertwee’s karaoke rendition of the “Fireball XL-5” song, River Song marrying Robert Robinson and Matt rocks the world of fandom by calling for Doctor Who to be rescheduled opposite Coronation Street on Wednesday nights.

DIDDLY DUM PODCAST 047 – Time And Relative Diners In Space

BlockbusterOnce again, Matt’s hectic work schedule leaves Doc and Hayden alone in the Diddly Dum Whoseum waiting for him to Skype in from his mobile/cellphone while locking up and clocking out at work.

As Series 9 of Doctor Who reaches its finale, The Four Faces of Delusion review “Heaven Sent” and “Hell Bent”.

Along the way, Hayden explores Frank Herbert’s new Spiceworm/Krynoid crossover novel “The Seeds of Dune”. How Doc manipulates his Kindle font size on the London Underground to snub his fellow passengers. And how Matt had a whole world of adventures in a school cupboard.

DIDDLY DUM PODCAST 046 – Snug No More

Battle FinalThe white heat of technology is called upon to save the day this week as, while Doc and Hayden sit warm in The Whoseum, poor Matt still hasn’t got away from work. So during their review of the Doctor Who episodes “Sleep No More” and “Face the Raven”, one third of the Four Faces of Delusion contributes via his phone while dashing around the former Coronation Street set putting out the lights and locking the doors, and then from the top deck of the Number 192 bus during a hair-raising journey along the A6.

Along the way, we hear how Matt avoided a Judy Finnegan moment during his own Oscars moment, we cover the BBC’s 1970s child-scarer “The Changes” and its relevance even today for bringing communities together, we bemoan Doctor Who’s habit of giving us rubbish soldiers and we debate the correct plural of hiatus.

DIDDLY DUM PODCAST 045 – Sandmining Popcorn

hidden libkThis week, Matt has been caught in a time bubble while punting on the Irwell. What does the future hold for Hayden, alone in the Whoseum with only Pampisford Aylesbury (Doc’s Zygon double) and a wonky Time Space Visualiser for company?

The remaining members of the Four Faces of Delusion nevertheless review the “Invasion of the Zygons” / “Inversion of the Zygons” two-parter.

Along the way, we discover how the “Robots of Death” is a trenchant allegory of people eating popcorn in cinemas, how Hayden in his youth used to fiddle the BBC’s ratings for Doctor Who and how the Brigadier is a more caring man in the TARGET novelisations than in the TV episodes.

DIDDLY DUM PODCAST 044 – Madam I’m Odin

The Human Palindrome, Mark Cockram of the Blue Box Podcast, joins the Four Faces of Delusion to make a podcasting quartet. This week, we shake the Doctor Who world to its foundations as we compile a dossier of disloyal quotes from fans of the show pushing for for changes at the top. Gasp as Russell T Davies attacks epic series arcs. Recoil as Steven Moffat demands an end to Gallifreyan back-story. No more preview tapes for those two.

Along the way, we cover scandals so shocking that they have to be censored from the podcast. Matt tells of his disappointment at not meeting Mark Strickson despite having dressed as Vorshak from “Warriors of the Deep” specially for him, but a chance meeting with an old friend cheers him up. We help Jon Pertwee to redeem an old Saturday evening favourite (though no-one will admit it). And the flower of the week is the Lupin.

(00:56:45) What would Captain Picard look like with hair?

(00:37:35) Jon Pertwee appeared on BBC’s “Noel’s House Party” on 19 March 1994 after having received his “Gotcha” (just think elaborate Candid Camera-esque practical joke).

(00:57:35) Here’s the Monty Python “Dennis Moore” sketch (a.k.a the Lupins sketch) which had completely slipped Doc’s mind.

(01:08:50) Lenny the Lion was a ventriloquist puppet which used to appear on British television. You can see why the Doctor uses him as a term of abuse.

Peter Capaldi makes to throw his birthday cake in Maisie Williams’s face.

DIDDLY DUM PODCAST 043 – If Walls Could Talk

07

Hayden returns from his trip to New York just in time to watch both “Under the Lake” and “Before the Flood” for this week’s review show. Meanwhile, Matt employs the wonders of Skype to join us from Gareth Kavanagh’s aviary where he’s been birdsitting.

Along the way, the BBC splits the Four Faces of Delusion from One Nation into a North-South divide as we furiously debate the correct pronunciation of “Class” before going on to analyse the obvious similarities between the proposed spin-off and Sister Act. Hayden finally receives his Peter Capaldi figure and finds it a little tall. We explain the significance of Hilda’s Ogden living room in the design of the underwater base and the centrality of the astronomy of “Porridge” to the Doctor Who universe. Hayden and Matt listen in horror to tales of Doc’s A Level English Literature course.

And we even manage to find time to celebrate the clunkiest and most banal sentence in the history of Doctor Who.

(00:21:55) Hayden’s finally completed line-up of Doctor figures can be seen on our October Tumbler page here.

(00:52:25) When it came to the Sword of Orion, perhaps the writers of this story could have benefited from a lesson in astonomy from “A Test of Character”, episode 5 of season 3 of “Porridge”.

SHOWNOTES

(00:03:10) “The Blind Beggar” is a pub on Whitechapel Road, Whitechapel in London. The pub is known for Ronnie Kray’s murder of George Cornell. The Kray Twins were, as any Cockney will reassure you, famous for loving their mother, if not Jack “the Hat” Mcvitie.

(00:09:20) Chris Morris is an English comedian, writer, director, actor, voice actor, and producer. In the early 1990s, Morris teamed up with his radio producer, Armando Iannucci, to create On The Hour, a satire of news programmes. This was expanded into a television spin off, The Day Today, which launched the career of Steve Coogan, and has since been hailed as one of the most important satirical shows of the 1990s. Morris further developed the satirical news format with Brass Eye, which lampooned celebrities whilst focusing on themes such as crime and drugs. For many, the apotheosis of Morris’s career was a Brass Eye special, which dealt with the moral panic surrounding paedophilia. It quickly became one of the most complained about programmes in British television history, leading the Daily Mail to describe him as “the most loathed man on TV”.

(00:12:40) Philip Morris on finding then losing “Web of Fear” episode 3.

(00:53:08) “Bugs” is a British television drama series which ran for four series from April 1995 to August 1999

(01:05:30) The Doctor and Clara crossing the Abbey Road zebra crossing …ooops sorry that was someone else doing what a million people have done before – here’s the actual photo.

(01:28:40) “Rainbow is a British children’s television series which ran from 1972 to 1992. The first Rainbow presenter and the War Bungle. The show’s first presenter was David Cook. It starred voice of the Daleks Roy Skelton as characters George and Zippy. The first actor to play the role of Bungle Bear was voice of K9 John Leeson. This incarnation of Bungle was so scary that generations of children have tried to wipe it from their memories which is why it has become known as The War Bungle.

(01:31:30) Behind the scenes videos on the creation of Series 9 of Doctor Who.

(02:21:02) Katy Manning appears on Phonic FM.
