We never explained how Al, Doc and The Rev escaped the supernatural attack at the Devil’s Hump dig in the closing seconds of Podcast 010.

All those weeks visiting iconic drinking establishments from Doctor Who lore have taken their toll on the livers of The Diddly Dumbers. On medical advice, the Three Who Drool have retired to Llanfairfach in South Wales for an intense course of detoxification at The Nuthutch.
