DIDDLY DUM PODCAST 062 – Escritoires and Commodes

oompa6Our guest at The Whoseum this week is Allan Lear, one of the eminences grises of the Doctor Who Appreciation Society. Allan brings along a stolen library hardback copy of The Deadly Assassin, a newspaper clipping of Mrs Lear with a Dalek and a collection of haemovore nail clippings.

Along the way, we encounter “the worst first draft of a Lewis Carroll novel ever”, we debate the ideal size of bathroom towelling (from face flannel to bathsheet) to be clutching when opening a hotel door to unexpectedly find Dominic Glynn on the threshold, we discuss the colour of the Second Doctor’s eyes, we hail the histrionic apotheosis of Nicholas Parsons and we eviscerate the Ontological Argument.

PODCASTERS ROYALE 03 – ON HER MAJESTY’S SECRET SERVICE

LOGO 05

This episode, Hayden is joined by podcasters Steven Schapansky and J R Southall as they discuss arguably one of the most divisive entries in the 007 f*****ise – 1969’s “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service”. Hear the guys on George Lazenby, Kojak on skis, the many faces of Campbell, the blondest man in the film and JR telling off Hayden for using a modern term for the word ‘womaniser.’ They are even abruptly pod-bombed by a Bond girl…

(Music used: Sondre Lerche – Like Lazenby. John Barry – We Have All the Time in the World and theme from On Her Majesty’s Secret Service)

DIDDLY DUM PODCAST 061 – Three Marks Out Of Four

soviet3

We’re joined in the marble halls of The Whoseum this week by Marc (for it is he) Atkinson of the Progtor Who Podcast.

Marc arrived driving a forklift as it was the only way he could transport his item for exhibition and discussion – the “Doctor Who: The Vault” book from the 50th anniversary.

We also look at Ed Stradling’s trilogy of musical blockbusters, “The Doctor Who Years” tapes.

Along the way, Hayden and Marc chat about music while the Whoseum computer translates for a confused and unmusical Doc. We remember the taste of Dalek Death Ray ice lollies from the 1970s. And Hayden relates yet another jammy anecdote from his life.

The video was presented in three parts, The Sixties, The Seventies and The Eighties, and featured material from every Doctor Who serial, presented chronologically and accompanied by narrative text and pop music that had featured in the UK Singles Chart at the time the clips were originally broadcast. The Sixties was produced by SVS, The Seventies and The Eighties were produced by Ed Stradling. The videos were commissioned by James Goss, then editor of the BBCi’s Doctor Who website.

There are also some pics of this range can be found on our Tumblr page here later painted versions here.

DIDDLY DUM PODCAST 058 – Oh Daddy

clipping 10This week’s visitor to the Diddly Dum Whoseum is Mark Cockram of the Blue Box Podcast and the Nerdology podcast. Mark becomes only the second guest to enter those hallowed portals for the third time.

Mark brings along The Special Edition DVD of “Inferno” and we celebrate the world of Doctor Who DVD extras. Hayden presents his prized collection of Anniversary Postage Stamps signed by Tom Baker and we hear about the day he met the great man. Doc’s exhibit is the page of the Radio Times covering Saturday 26 February 1972. On that evening, episode one of The “Sea Devils” was broadcast, the first story Doc can remember. We use this as an excuse to look at how BBC1 Saturday evening scheduling has changed down the years. Can you recognise some of the 70s and 80s theme tunes Doc plays before the boys guess them?

Finally, never one to miss relating a jammy experience, Hayden tells us about the day Tamsin Grieg asked if she could join him at his coffee shop table.

DIDDLY DUM PODCAST 057 – Pink Floyd and Doodlebugs

Armour picsThis week, we have only three Faces of Delusion as, in Matt’s absence, Doc and Hayden attempt a two-hander podcast.

We start with Hayden reminiscing about his weekend at “The Capitol” – the Doctor Who Appreciation Society’s 40th anniversary event. If you’ve ever felt envious of his seeming ability to fall on his feet in any fan situation, then you’ve not heard anything yet as his jamminess soars to new heights.

Then, inspired by last time’s discussion of the “Genesis of the Daleks” LP, we try out the audio-only soundtracks of three Doctor Who stories which we’ve previously only ever watched. Would they work as LPs?

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.
