This week we let Hayden loose again with the Diddly Dum microphone. This time he’s chatting to fellow Doctor Who podcasters. Rob (Brave Heart) Irwin of the Who Wars Podcast tells of trying to please both Doctor Who and Star Wars fans. Steven (No Less) Schapansky of Radio Free Skaro recalls the day he was cured of stage fright. Toby (For it is he) Hadoke of the Who’s Round podcast reveals his underhand use of Coronation Street to manipulate Russell T Davies into undertaking his mammoth and still not finished) interview. J R (Sorry you were out) Southall of the Blue Box Podcast asserts that our own Doc Whom struck lucky twice. Doc himself was fortunately not within reach of a microphone to dispute this claim. Along the way, we find out what constitutes a cool photo with Tom Baker, Hayden relates his meeting with Peter Capaldi and reveals which director sent him scurrying behind the sofa in fear when he was interviewed by hockey fans, and residents of EX postcodes discover why Doctor Who was responsible for their post being delivered late.
