Our guest at The Whoseum this week is Allan Lear, one of the eminences grises of the Doctor Who Appreciation Society. Allan brings along a stolen library hardback copy of The Deadly Assassin, a newspaper clipping of Mrs Lear with a Dalek and a collection of haemovore nail clippings.
Along the way, we encounter “the worst first draft of a Lewis Carroll novel ever”, we debate the ideal size of bathroom towelling (from face flannel to bathsheet) to be clutching when opening a hotel door to unexpectedly find Dominic Glynn on the threshold, we discuss the colour of the Second Doctor’s eyes, we hail the histrionic apotheosis of Nicholas Parsons and we eviscerate the Ontological Argument.
