This double review of “Time Heist” and “The Caretaker” opens with the Diddly Dumbers being pursued through the vaults of the Karabraxos Bank by fiendish monsters from their childhood nightmares. At the last minute, our heroes manage to escape by Transmat and land in the empty staff room of Coal Hill School.
Along the way, the Three Who Drool discuss the late Dr Evelyn Smythe and identify why the design of the Skovox Blitzer reminded them of Christmas morning 1980. They debate why different vocal stresses are given to street and road names and explore Steven Moffat’s push to reboot the new Doctor as the Peter Cushing incarnation.

The Rev depicts the last minute escape of the Diddly Dumbers from the bank vaults as the podcast begins. For those of you unfamiliar with UK TV banking commercials from the 1980s, the yellow Griffin was used to advertise Midland Bank (now swallowed up by HSBC) and the pig was used to advertise Nat West Bank.
Dr Evelyn Smythe is a fictional character played by Maggie Stables in a series of audio plays produced by Big Finish Productions based on the long-running British science fiction television series Doctor Who. A professor of history from the 20th century with a fondness for chocolate, she is a companion of the Sixth Doctor.
