EX02

Excitement abounds this week at The Whoseum as we reveal details of our partnership with the Doctor Who Appreciation Society’s CAPITOL³ convention as their official podcaster.

But eventually we get down to our tribute to the late Peter Miles by taking a look at the Season 7 (1970) story – The Silurians. Along the way, we look at Peter’s work with Dusty Springfield, Jim Davidson latter career as a Liberace impersonator and the most bad-ass recurring villain of the Pertwee era (it’s not what you may think).

Plus we make a singular phone call to Hayden.

SHOWNOTES

(00:00:00) One of Peter Miles’s lesser-known activities was as a jazz singer and, 50+ years ago, he duetted with his friend Dusty Springfield on “Can’t We Be Friends”. This track has recently been released by a major record company. Peter can be seen at 10 mins into this video clip contributing to a South Bank Show looking at Dusty Springfield.

(00:01:11) The Diddly Dum Podcast has been asked by the Doctor Who Appreciation Society to be the official podcasting partner of their Capitol³ convention at the end of April 2018.

(00:06:45) Hayden’s interview with Tony Jordan from May 2015 can be found on episode 33 of the Diddly Dum Podcast (starts at 01:41:45) which can be found here.

(00:07:02) Hayden’s first Saturday morning breakfast show on Cambridge 105Radio goes out on 07 April 2018 between 7am and 8am.

(00:14:42) This clip is from the beginning of the Series 5 episode of Frasier – “Desperately Seeking Closure” which can be seen here.

(00:21:50) The Who at the Hoylake convention.

(00:49:40) Cult BBC TV series from 1975 with music by electronic pioneer Paddy Kingsland, who went on to score The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and Doctor Who. The critically acclaimed BBC TV series, The Changes, was first broadcast by the BBC in in 1975, accompanied by music from electronic pioneer Paddy Kingsland, who wrote and recorded the score while working at the BBC Radiophonic Workshop.

(00:52:00) “Space Fall: A Blake’s 7 Podcast” has recently been launched by friends of the show, David Kitchen and Richard Nolan. Every fortnight these two fans (and their guests) have a look at each episode of Blake’s 7, in order, discussing what they love about it, but also going into more depth about the stories and characters. They’l also be looking at the guests stars, and including some fun segments such as “look, it was the 1970s”, “what cool lines did Chris Boucher write for Avon this week?”, and “player of the week”!

(00:54:56) “Colour Me Kubrick: A True…ish Story” (released in the US as Color Me Kubrick) is a Franco-British comedy-drama film directed by Brian W. Cook, released in 2005. The film stars John Malkovich as Alan Conway, a man who had been impersonating director Stanley Kubrick since the early 1990s. One of the biggest scams is when Conway promises to help establish Lee Pratt (Jim Davidson) as a headliner act in Las Vegas. Pratt is a British entertainer who’s had limited success as a flamboyant dancer and stage singer. Pratt is described as a “low-rent Liberace with an Elvis gleam in his eye.” The singing clip can be found here.

(01:39:19) This closing music is “The Manchester Rap” (1990) by The Bosnians. A slightly (but only slightly) exaggerated parody of the Manchester/Salford accent.
