(00:01:42) “Child Out of Time” is our own Hayden’s long-awaited book telling the story of how, having been born in the year Doctor Who was cancelled, he still managed to grow up loving Doctor Who during its Wilderness Years. Copies are hoped to be in the shops by Christmas. Until then, paperbacks can be purchased on Amazon (here) as can Kindle editions (here). Hayden’s own website (here) and his Facebook author page (here) give more details.

(00:03:20) “The Six Ages of Podcasting” – Hayden is here referring to episode 5 of the Diddly Dum Podcast back in February 2014 (actually titled “The Six Ages of Fan”) in the days when Hayden was a mere listener to the podcast and hadn’t yet morphed into a mover and a shaker. In the episode, we discussed how the life of the fan changes as we grow older. The episode was also noted for the gorgeous art which The Rev (@skaromedia drew and painted to accompany it which can be found on our Tumblr page (here).

(00:03:32) “Child Out of Time” was an article which Hayden wrote for the DWAS magazine Celestial Toyroom around 2010 and a copy can be found on Hayden’s old blog (here).

(00:09:21) Clayton Hickman’s designs for Redbubble (as plugged by our own Mark) can be found here. One of the T-shirts of Clayton’s designs can be seen modelled here by our own Mark.

(00:19:30) Nathan Barley is a Channel 4 television sitcom written by Charlie Brooker and Chris Morris. The series of six weekly episodes began broadcasting on 11 February 2005. Described by his creator as a “meaningless strutting cadaver-in-waiting”, the character originated on Brooker’s TVGoHome – a website parodying television listings – as the focus of a fly-on-the-wall documentary.

(00:44:42) “Play for Today” is a British television anthology drama series, produced by the BBC and transmitted on BBC1 from 1970 to 1984. During the run, more than three hundred programmes, featuring original television plays, and adaptations of stage plays and novels, were transmitted.
