As Hayden delivers the Christmas presents and drinks to the Whoseum, an accident throws our podcasters through Space-Time onto Satellite 5 which is still broadcasting old gameshows to Earth. They must negotiate their way through numerous gameshow studios in order to find their way home in time for the traditional Christmas Blockbusters Gold Run.

Is Brucie a Skarosian agent under the control of his Dalek dolly dealers? Can the boys find the route out of The Crystal Maze? Will they win through to the Head-to-Head round of a Blankety Blank hosted by Terrance Dicks? Will they return to 2016 in time for the gala release of the Diddly Dum charity single? Listen in to find out.
