The Four Faces of Delusion become Five as the Diddly Dumbers are joined by JR Southall of the Blue Box Podcast. Our heroes have been summoned urgently to The Diddly Dum Whoseum by a false alarm so they take the opportunity to visit the dreaded Room 1-er-1 to debate which Doctor Who related things deserve to be consigned to oblivion.
Along the way, Matt regales us with tales of his visit to the “Day of the Doctors” convention, Michael Grade’s character flaws are laid bare by his milkman, we revisit the worst disasters from the history of Blue Peter and reveal the role played by The Governess (from TV quiz show The Chase) in the junking of Doctor Who archive tapes. Finally, Mr Southall’s outrageously controversial choice of item for Room 1-er-1 results in him following the road taken by Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego – but less successfully.

This week’s special guest is father of the show, JR Southall – the eminence grise of the Blue Box Podcast. In December 2013, it was JR who suggested to The Three Who Drool that they start their own podcast, and so Diddly Dum was born.
The baby elephant weeing and pooing on the Blue Peter studio floor is one of the core memories of a certain generation of British children. Look out for Peter Purves (First Doctor companion, Steven Taylor) presenting.
