In an exciting/innovative/”eeeek what have we done?” venture, the Doctor Who Appreciation Society has invited the Diddly Dum Podcast to step out from behind the curtain and throw the full weight of the publicity behemoth that is our audience (both of them) behind Capitol³ – the DWAS convention in April.
His fellow podcasters dragged Doc, an inveterate wild-horses-wouldn’t-drag-me cynic about fan conventions, to Capitol 2 last year and he came away an enthusiastic convert. Our own Mark’s friends and family kept telling him after the Capitol 2 weekend that he looked as if he’d been on a week’s holiday – and somewhere tropical, not just Bognor. Allan chaired panels and the fair Erica corralled the autograph queues into order with her pack of sheepdogs. Poor Hayden was moving house that weekend and missed all the fun.
We’ll be putting out a number of podcasts over Capitol³ weekend, peeping behind the scenes, chatting to the guests and hopefully bringing some of the fun to those of you who can’t get to the event (you’d better have a good excuse).
