Come and have a piece of cake as we celebrate the third birthday of the Diddly Dum Podcast. Originally intending to review “The Return of Doctor Mysterio”, we get slightly sidetracked by listing what Doctor Who goodies we got for Christmas. Then Hayden regales us with a tale of his Christmas visit to The Centre for Computing History in Cambridge where he discovered playable games consoles and games from his youth.
Eventually, we leave the subject of the 90s Doctor Who pinball game and the Activision Ghostbusters game from the 80s and turn to chatting about the latest Doctor Who Christmas Special.
Along the way, we discover Peter Cushing’s unusual hobby, we keep finding William Russell in the seasonal TV fare, and we look back to a very early podcast where we covered an early computer game featuring the voices of Jon Pertwee and Ian Dury.
