harry-2Yesterday marked the 30th anniversary of the sad early death of that stalwart of Doctor Who’s golden age, Ian Marter. It would also have been Ian’s 72nd birthday.

In tribute to Ian, we dedicate the whole of this podcast to celebrating his work in acting, writing and switching on Illuminations in seedy Lancastrian seaside resorts.

Along the way, we look at the philosophical chasm between £4.99 and £5.00, we translate the Duke of Forgill’s family motto, we compare “Dr Who Meets Scratchman” to “The Boy Who Kicked Pigs” and we look at the sequence of great historical inventors: Heron, Trevithick, Watt, Baker.
