The Four Faces of Delusion pick up from last week’s podcast on the TARGET novelisations by looking at the Doctor Who books published since 1989.
Being between jobs has really lit a fire under Matt who reveals that there’s little he doesn’t know about all these book ranges. This gives a well earned rest to Doc who knows bugger all about any of them.
Along the way, we learn how books kept Hayden from a life a crime and we hear of Matt’s visit to the roof of BBC Television Centre last week and meeting the great Graeme Harper while he was at it.
And of course we discuss the news that Chris Chibnall is to replace The Great Sage as showrunner.

(00:00:00) This week’s podcast opens with a clip from an episode of the BBC’s “Open Air” series broadcast in the aftermath of Season 23 of Classic Doctor Who with an audience of fans grilling Pip and Jane Baker. The star of this clip is a teenaged Chris Chibnall.
(00:02:15) This week has seen the announcement that Chris Chibnall will replace Steven Moffat as Doctor Who showrunner for series 11.
(00:26:24) Robert Banks Stewart (1931 – 2016).
(00:54:00) On a battleship above Earth, a violent dictator lies broken and wounded aboard his doomed vessel. As he witnesses the ship crumble and his army fall around him, only two thoughts consume his mind. To escape his fate and kill the Doctor. No, not the latest review of the Diddly Dum Podcast but “Aftermath”, the short story written a few years ago by our own Hayden which he reads here.
(01:55:23) “Room 5064” is a play written by Adrian Rigelsford, produced by Friend of Diddly Gareth Kavanagh and directed by Graeme Harper of Doctor Who fame. Our own Matt was invited along to a read-through and a photo shoot at what was (and still is in our minds) the BBC Television Centre. Photos of the cast can be found here on our Tumblr page. Matt can be found here looking very constructionist. Photos courtesy of Matt Charlton, Gareth Kavanagh and friends.
