SHOWNOTES

(00:00:00) The whole basis behind the Morbius brain tank skit relates to a frequently related experience of Doc’s at the Blackpool Doctor Who Exhibition as a young boy and can be found described at greater length in our podcast #54 at 01:02:47.

(00:03:05) The sketch of John Nathan-Turner which Mark drew inside Hayden’s birthday card can be seen on our Tumblr site here.

(00:06:02) “The Coming of Galactus” art which is thought to have inspired the “The Doctors” TARGET cover art can be found on our Tumblr page here.

(00:09:57) Sean Arnold earned undying glory (as far as Doc’s corcerned) for his portrayal of Commander Telson in James Follett’s seminal radio sci-fi series “Earthsearch” which was first broadcast on BBC Radio 4 between January and March 1981.

(00:10:34) “Jubilation T Cornpone” is of course a song from the musical “L’il Abner”.

(00:12:16) “The Ascent of Man” is a 13-part British documentary television series produced by the BBC and Time-Life Films first broadcast in 1973; it was written and presented by British mathematician and historian of science Jacob Bronowski. The relevant audio clip is from the episode “Knowlege and Certainty and can be see here.

(00:22:12) The Harry Enfield “Goodfellas” sketch can be seen here.

(00:49:55) Andrew Cartmel guested on episode 16 of the Diddly Dum Podcast in 2014 which can be found here.

(00:56:20) “Vision On” was a British children’s television programme, shown on BBC1 from 1964 to 1976 and designed specifically for children with hearing impairment. It starred among others Sylvester McCoy.

(00:56:32) Bonnie Langford’s path to stardom may well have started 00:35:45 into this combination of clips from “The Russell Harty Show”.

(01:11:08) The Walls Sky Ray commercial from 1967 can be found here.

(01:32:05) “Triangle” is a BBC Television soap opera broadcast in the early 1980s, set aboard a North Sea ferry which sailed from Felixstowe to Gothenburg and Gothenburg to Amsterdam. The show ran for three series before being cancelled, but is still generally remembered as “some of the most mockable British television ever produced”. The scripts involved clichéd relationships and stilted dialogue, making the show the butt of several jokes—particularly on Terry Wogan’s morning Radio 2 programme—which caused some embarrassment to the BBC.

(01:34:32) “Script Doctor: The Inside Story of Doctor Who 1986-89” is Andrew Cartmel’s memoir of this time based on his diaries written sometimes on set and sometimes not even in the diary itself but on the back of scripts. Illustrated with 32 pages of photographs, many of them not published before, this is a vivid account of life in the Doctor Who production office in the late eighties.

(01:35:08) This audio clip occurs about 00:15:15 into episode 13 of the Diddly Dum Podcast in 2014 which can/could be found here.

(01:41:59) Photos of the Tetrap gun and the Kang crossbow gun which Mark presented to The Whoseum can be seen on our Tumblr site here.

Beginning in 1958, it was a weekly variety show which presented traditional American minstrel and country songs, as well as show tunes and music hall numbers, lavishly costumed. Later in its life, the show was accused of racism and ethnic stereotyping by black anti-racist groups in the UK, such as the Campaign Against Racial Discrimination, due to its use of blackface.

SHOWNOTES

(00:21:43) Our recent encounters with the history of The League of Ovaltineys has led to our obtaining original copies of their Official Rule Book which can be seen on our Tumblr page here.

(00:26:36) Far back in the mists of time, in the great and glorious aftermath of Doctor Who’s 50th anniversary, days of the birth of the Diddly Dum Podcast, men were real men, women were real women and podcasters were real podcasters. And our erstwhile co-host, The Rev, dared to brave new artistic frontiers and to sketch his fellow hosts.  And thus was the Diddly Dum Podcast born. To mark Hayden’s 100th episode, we have commissioned sketches of Hayden and Mark by The Rev (a.k.a. Andy, a.k.a. @skaromedia) to set alongside the originals. These new sketches can be seen here and here on our Tumblr page alongside those of Al No, Doc and The Rev.

(00:33:35) Hayden and one of his sisters met Deborah and Jack Watling at a convention in Clacton around 1999 as can be seen in this photo on our Tumblr page.

(00:37:20) The crucial pages from Hayden’s Read and Record books can be seen on our Tumblr page here.

(00:47:42) The reference to Pugh, Pugh, Barney McGrew, Cuthbert Dibble and Grubb is of course the roll call of the Trumpton Fire Brigade.

(00:49:18) The old lady urging people to come out of their houses bears a remarkable resemblance to Delia Smith at half-time on the Norwich City FC pitch.

(00:50:20) This is about a quarter of the actual noise outside at the time of recording.

(01:12:25) Professor Branestawm is a series of thirteen books written by the English author Norman Hunter. Written over a 50-year period, between 1933 and 1983, the children’s books feature as protagonist the eponymous inventor, Professor Theophilus Branestawm, who is depicted throughout the books as the archetypal absent-minded professor.

SHOWNOTES

(00:02:55) Aaron A Aardvark, alias Eric Plunket, is a character from the 2000AD strip “Judge Dredd: The Day the Law Died” (Prog 95, 13 Jan 1979). An unremarkable citizen of Mega-City One, he changed his name to Aaron A Aardvark in order to be the first person listed in the phone book. This rather odd ambition proved to be his undoing when the insane Chief Judge Cal began executing the citizenry in alphabetical order. The relevant page can be seen on our Tumblr page here. 

(00:07:45) Tim Brooke-Taylor can be seen singing the words to “Girlfriend in a Coma” to the tune of “Tiptoe Through the Tulips” here.

(00:13:25) Our erstwhile Diddly Dum host, The Rev Capt Hullu Porro (a.k.a. Andy) is selling high quality copies of the artwork he painted to accompany our podcast #5 “The Six Ages of Fan”. Each print costs a minimum of £5 (inc. p&p) but you can donate as much as you like. All proceeds will be donated to The Trussell Trust to support their help for the poor and for food banks during the lockdown. You can find links on Andy’s Facebook page to either buy them on eBay or to cut out the middle man by donating direct to The Trussell Trust and dropping Andy a message to let him know your name and address. Andy can also be found on Twitter @skaromedia.

(00:17:02) Andy (The Rev) can also be found showing his unique brand of music on the Facebook group “Captain Coronas Isolation Open Mic Group”.

(00:17:49) #CONtacthasbeenmade will be showing a selection of filmed panels from the Doctor Who Appreciation Society’s first four “Capitol” conventions on their DWASONLINE Youtube channel and Facebook and Instagram sites. These are being run in support of NHS Charities Together and Domestic Abuse Volunteer Support Services and we hope that you’ll be able to donate something while watching the videos.

(0025:20) The Doctor Who Appreciation Society Announces the Return of TARDIS Magazine. TARDIS was one of the earliest Doctor Who Fan magazines (fanzines) and was first published in 1975 by Andrew Johnson. In the summer of 1976 the newly formed ‘Doctor Who Appreciation Society’ took on the publication of the magazine. Over the next few years, TARDIS went from strength to strength. It started as hand duplicated title, soon acquiring ‘photo pages’ which were inserts produced by offset litho. Later on, TARDIS become professionally printed itself, and in 1979 it saw colour for the first time. TARDIS was always supplied as an addition to DWAS membership until it was absorbed into the Society’s newsletter ‘Celestial Toyroom’ in 1987. TARDIS subsequently ceased publication as CT itself moved away from its traditional newsletter format and became a magazine in its own right.

Between April 1997 and December 1998, the Society resurrected TARDIS as a quarterly publication alongside Celestial Toyroom but then retired the title again, with a brief return as a one-off special in 2003 celebrating the show’s 40th anniversary.

The world of Doctor Who fandom has changed beyond recognition since then, and nowadays there are very few printed fan magazines. Celestial Toyroom remains the staple of the DWAS’s own output giving air to wide range of views. Many writers have started with items in CT before moving on to more mainstream publications including ‘Doctor Who Magazine’. DWAS has recognised the changing landscape and CTs sister publication, Cosmic Masque is now published as a download at our website. ‘The Celestial Toyroom Annual’ is released principally as an eBook with a limited run print copy also available.

Whereas fandom is a very ‘virtual experience’ these days, we remain convinced that there is a solid, sustainable demand for printed magazines, produced by fans for fans. As such, the Doctor Who Appreciation Society is very pleased to announce the return of ‘TARDIS’.

Volume 16 of TARDIS will begin publication in the summer of 2020. Under the editorship of Robbie Dunlop, it will be an entirely commissioned features-based magazine, published three times per year as a vibrant A4 title. It will be available to all fans from DWAS’s company Space Rocket Ltd, with DWAS members given the opportunity to buy directly from the Society at a substantial discount. We will continue our tradition of supporting charities through our output with each edition raising funds for a worthy cause.

The price and ordering information will be announced soon with the first issue of the new volume following shortly afterwards. In the meantime, Celestial Toyroom continues on its monthly publications schedule, giving members the opportunity to express their views on all aspects of Doctor Who. A new edition of Cosmic Masque, our fiction and reviews title, will also be released for download in the summer and a new ‘Celestial Toyroom Annual’ for 2021 is in the planning stages now.

On the podcast, we will keep providing you with information about the relaunch by the Doctor Who Appreciation Society of their “TARDIS” magazine.

Some front covers of past issues of “TARDIS” can be found on our Tumblr page here and here.

DIDDLY DUM PODCAST 131 – Gallifrey Falls – Capitol Stands

The only topic remaining was postponing conventions during global pandemics. Oh, that old chestnut, we hear you cry. Tony Jordan returns to The Whoseum to relate the palaver of having to postpone “Terrance Dicks: A Celebration” and “Capitol 5” during lockdown.

The game has a strong science fiction atmosphere and is set in a spacecraft. It puts the player in control of an engineer named Isaac Clarke who fights Necromorphs, monstrous reanimated human corpses, aboard an interstellar mining ship, the USG Ishimura. You can judge for yourself whether Mark’s memory is working when he compares the back of Isaac to that of The Lone Cyberman on our Tumblr page here.
