Matt was unable to attend The Whoseum for this week’s podcast but we had an able chap to make up the threesome in the person of Phil Cannon from the Who’s He? Podcast.
If you want to make sense of the meaning of the TARGET cover above, you’ll have to listen to the podcast where the new exhibits being presented to the Diddly Dum Whoseum include Airfix Doctor Who model kits, Hayden’s Palitoy Cyberman and the “Genesis of the Daleks” LP.
Along the way, we cover the reveal of new companion Pearl Mackie, Doc meets his childhood heroes (Bagpuss, Professor Yaffle and Major Clanger), we launch Feistywatch and reveal the link between 2000AD and Toy Story 1.
Hayden organised a St George’s Day football match for Cancer Research UK recently. Any donations would be gratefully received.

(00:01:30) This week’s special guest at the Diddly Dum Whoseum is Phil Cannon of the Who’s He? Podcast.
(00:02:05) Phil is, of course, already canonical in the Diddly Dum universe as he chatted to Hayden during “Podcasters Assemble 2” on Diddly Dum Podcast 51.
(00:07:30) “Uncle” is a rich philanthropic elephant who lives in a huge fantastical castle populated by many other eccentric animals and people. He appears in a series of children’s novels first written in 1964 by J. P. Martin and illustrated by Quentin Blake.
(00:08:10) Hayden organised a St George’s Day football match for Cancer Research UK recently. Any donations would be gratefully received. Hayden’s the one in yellow, ladies.
(00:11:24) On 24 April 2016, Diddly Dumber Matt interviewed Bob Baker at the Fab Cafe in Manchester.
(00:16:37) Doc recently visited the Small Films exhibition at the V&A Museum of Childhood where he oohed and aahed over memories of Bagpuss, The Clangers, Ivor the Engine and Noggin the Nog.
(00:19:35) “Captain Kremmen” was a science fiction radio serial set in the early 21st Century. It was written and performed for Capital Radio by the DJ Kenny Everett and featured the eponymous vain and dimwitted spaceship captain. The LP which Doc converted into an MP3 was “”The Greatest Adventure Yet From Captain Kremmen” (1980).
(00:20:20) “The Adventures of Sir Prancelot” was a children’s animated television programme which followed the adventures of Sir Prancelot, an eccentric inventor-knight. It was first transmitted on BBC 1 on Thursday, 13 January 1972. The LP which Doc converted into an MP3 was “”The Adventures of Sir Prancelot” (1972).
(00:23:20) Visit our Youtube page to see The War Bungle in all his horrific glory.
(00:42:18) Choppers, the last of the chimps who were used to advertise PG Tips tea bags has sadly died.
(00:44:40) Phil has presented for exhibition in The Whoseum two Airfix Doctor Who model kits, “Welcome Aboard” and “Dalek Encounter”.
(01:01:54) This was the HO-OO scale “Jungle Outpost” set which Doc remembers.
(01:02:00) This was the HO-OO scale “Roman Fort” set which Doc remembers.
(01:06:45) The casing of The Golden Emperor Dalek from TV Century 21 comic strip “The Daleks” was presented for exhibition in The Whoseum by Doc in podcast #26.
(01:08:55) Gareth Kavanagh visited The Whoseum in Diddly Dum Podcast #32.
(01:13:15) Hayden has presented for exhibition in The Whoseum his Palitoy Cyberman.
(01:21:40) This was the HO-OO scale “Gun Emplacement” set which Doc remembers.
(01:32:45) The Trojan Warriors box set from the Britain’s Herald range of toy soldiers.
(01:34:00) “Meltdown Man” was a comic strip created by writer Alan Hebden and artist Massimo Belardinelli which ran in 2000 AD from prog 178 to prog 227 (50 episodes in total) in 1980. It told the tale of Nick Stone, a former S.A.S. officer apparently blasted into a possible future by a nuclear explosion. In this future, in a neat reversal of the classic Planet of the Apes scenario, sadistic humans oppress downtrodden genetically-altered animals (called ‘Yujees’) whom they keep as slaves.
(01:35:35) Doc has presented for exhibition in The Whoseum the “Genesis of the Daleks” soundtrack LP (1978).
