For their double review of “Robot of Sherwood” and “Listen”, the Diddly Dumbers travel to Sherwood Forest itself to record the podcast.
Along the way, the Three Who Drool discuss the best incarnations of Robin Hood down the years on the big and small screen, a new form of chocolate scampi with mysterious centres and hanky panky with Arthur Lowe. They analyse the evidence linking Terrance Dicks to Star Wars’ Admiral Ackbar and debate the sexual propriety of the TARDIS console now incorporating moist, squelchy slits.

No Complications: Listen (time shift) – on Al’s blog.
The supernatural attack on the podcasters which sent Doc running back to The Cloven Hoof forms the closing minutes of Diddly Dum Podcast 010 (Date With the Devil) from about 1 hr 50 mins onwards.
We discovered Missy’s secret identity by a rather circuitous route. There are vague similarities in Series 8’s portrayal of Coal Hill School to current BBC school-based series “Waterloo Road” and that staple of British childhood TV for 30 years “Grange Hill”. Mrs McClusky was the headmistress of Grange Hill for years. The show’s opening credits inspired some of the artwork accompanying this podcast. Super-scary Grange Hill teacher, Mr Bronson, played by Michael Sheard (Doctor Who passim). First Mclusky, Then Came Bronson (if only in Al’s fevered mind).
