DIDDLY DUM PODCAST 028 – One or Twenty-Eight   Leave a comment

The Diddly Dum Podcast returns after a break with some bombshell news. Then The Whoseum is opened up again to welcome Hayden Gribble and Matt Charlton who  have found the coveted copperplate invitations to The Whoseum in their Wonka Bars. Listen in as they present for exhibition items which speak to their hearts of what Doctor Who means.

Is that silver sphere a garden ornament or a Yeti control unit? What did Hayden find in his great grandmother’s Radio Times to set him off on a lifetime of Doctor Who fandom? How can Matt’s Ninth Doctor action figure be simultaneously groovy and bolshy? And where did Hayden get that shooting script from?

Along the way, the conversation leaps from Thals in ripped jeans to Pinky and Perky via the prospect of Doctor Who taking its soap opera elements to unheard of heights. Doc even reveals his guiltiest of secrets when it comes to TV viewing pleasure.

DIDDLY DUM PODCAST 027 – Andrew Smith   Leave a comment

The Three Who Drool enter the New Year by inviting Andrew Smith into The Diddly Dum Whoseum. Originally famous as the teenage writer of Fourth Doctor story “Full Circle”, Andrew is once more writing Doctor Who and Blakes Seven plays for Big Finish.

The exhibits presented by Andrew to The Whoseum are the Radio Times Doctor Who Tenth Anniversary Special and Toby Hadoke’s “Who’s Round” podcast series. They provoke lots of chat.

Along the way, conversation turns inter alia to Police Box keys, how Norman Wisdom has informed The Rev’s image of the Police, dinosaurs at Crystal Palace and the UK’s first crematorium.

Please take the time to read about a charity Andrew is interested in, The Lily Foundation, which gives support to children and families facing the challenges of Mitochondrial Disease, and support them if you can. www.thelilyfoundation.org.uk              @4lilyfoundation

The podcast ends with a tribute to our Whoseum guest in the form of a Blockbusters Gold Run. If you’d like to follow along with Al and The Rev as they attempt to go from Gold to Gold before the two of them lose interest, here’s a screenshot of the Gold Run screen.

Join The Three Who Drool at The Diddly Dum Whoseum for a festive podcast as, watched by an elite squad of firefighters, they light the first candle on their Advent Crown. If you listen very carefully, in the distance behind the giant Whoseum blast doors, you may just make out the faint notes of the Salvation Army band approaching up the snowy slopes of cruel Caradhras (which is played in a cameo appearance by Waltons Mountain).

This week, the Diddly Dumbers present exhibits of their own for display in The Whoseum. Each one is an item redolent for them of a part of their lives with Doctor Who – the podcasting community, Douglas Adams and The Golden Emperor himself.

The podcast ends with a tribute to mark both Diddly Dum’s first year and Doc finally fixing the glitch in the software on the Blockbusters Gold Run screen.

DIDDLY DUM PODCAST 025 – Whoniversary   Leave a comment

Happy Doctor Who Day to one and all. To celebrate The Glorious 23rd, The Three Who Drool have invited into the marble halls of the Diddly Dum Whoseum the man who first suggested that they do a podcast together – J R Southall of the Blue Box Podcast (for it is he).

The spiritual absent father of the Diddly Dum Podcast presents the following to the Whoseum as significant milestones in his Doctor Who life: “The Doctor Who Monster Book” (1975), his complete collection of both sets of both Doctor Who Weetabix cards (not in the original packaging alas) and “You and Who” – the collection of Doctor Who essays compiled by JR himself. Listen in as the four Fine Doubters (and dogs) discuss the Whoseum’s new exhibits before the thrilling climax when JR wheels in his final exhibit and installs Steven Moffat permanently in the cryogenic display case.

Along the way, the podcasters discuss the role played by Cairn Terriers in their Doctor Who lives, whether phoenixes and unicorns count as real creatures, the struggle involved in writing to order, the significance of the capital letter Y in moral philosophy and whether it is obligatory to hate Doctor Who.

And of course it wouldn’t be a Whoseum podcast without JR putting himself on the hot spot for a Blockbusters Gold Run. What grand prize awaits him if he manages to go from gold to gold in 360 seconds or less?

DIDDLY DUM PODCAST 024 – Doc in Heaven   1 comment

10479410_10205279237765358_4213470079412159836_o

For this double review of “Dark Water” and “Death in Heaven”, the Diddly Dumbers pay tribute to the theory developed by The Him (Al’s éminence grise) that Steven Moffat’s source material for Doctor Who is stolen entirely from Danger Mouse episodes. So they leap once again into the Molecular Nanoscaler and shrink themselves small enough to enter the secret agent’s pillar box base.

Nestled safely among the uncollected post, the Diddly Dumbers start with Doc’s mammoth rambling review of his recent trip to the British Film Institute to see the premiere of “Future Shock – The Story of 2000AD”. Eventually, the Three Who Drool remember that this is primarily a Doctor Who related podcast and turn to the Series 8 finale double-bill.

Along the way, The Rev reveals how Steven Moffat is cooking pasta with guess who’s spice rack, Doc gets so deeply mired in an elaborate “Friends” analogy that he forgets why he started it, Al hams it up with hamartia, we cover how “The Happiness Patrol” never came near 2000AD’s “Invasion” in attacking Margaret Thatcher, why it’s illegal to produce horror comics in the UK, Australia’s joint-second top contributions to world culture, how watching Steven Moffat’s finale was like those scouts on a roller-coaster in “J**’** F** I*”, and we discover why the campest character in sci-fi history could well have been Admiral Ackbar.

DIDDLY DUM PODCAST 023 – Flatline   Leave a comment

For this double review of “Flatline” and “In the Forest of the Night”, the Diddly Dumbers have repaired to a sylvan glade. But the peaceful location belies a lurking menace. Which of us hasn’t shivered at the idea of growling in the bushes?

Each new podcast seems to reveal another shocking example of shameless thievery on Steven Moffat’s part. You know that “how can I have been so blind?” feeling when the penny drops and something is laid bare which has been staring you in the face for years? That’s how our podcasters felt this week when The Him (Al’s eminence grise) pointed out what now seems so obvious – that the idea behind every Series 8 episode of Doctor Who can be traced back to an original episode of “Danger Mouse”. The Three Who Drool discuss this outrage.

Along the way, we cover the role of the Three Day Week in The Rev’s conception, Doc having to wait over 40-odd years for his scariest ever experience in Doctor Who, ten foots and snickleways, The Rev finding that the day can be as scary as the night, has normally lovely Sigourney Weaver ever been a more of a total bitch than her character in “Working Girl”, comics as a form of literacy, Al finding Judge Dredd standing next to him at the urinal, the best way not to be killed by tigers and “Peppa Pig” as a prequel to “Animal Farm”.

As an erotic climax, Al finally explains his theory of Doctor Who as Greek tragedy.
