This week, the Diddly Dum Podcast is brought to you by the letter A. Two things are missing this week – Hayden and all Doc’s notes for his Whoseum segment. As a result, only Mark and Allan have exhibits to present – a wheelbarrow full of charred fragments of blue wood (which looks surprisingly like the debris of a TARDIS) and a broken link.
Along the way, Allan performs his first ever live stand-up gig, we investigate the unexpected origins of the presidential salute, we follow what happened to the Dalek ship prop after Daleks – Invasion Earth: 2150 AD (1966), and we examine the link between Shakespeare’s punk phase and Vincent Price’s horror films.
