The Four Faces of Delusion become five as we complete our set of Blue Box Podcasters by welcoming Mark Cockram to the Diddly Dum Whoseum.
Mark has brought along a number of items which are redolent for him of a life with the Doctor. From Jon Pertwee’s “Who is the Doctor” single to the Graham Williams era via Loose Cannon reconstructions. As for the man who stopped Tom Baker on Oxford Street and told him about his childhood in a care home, Mark’s own tale of his primary school Tom Baker trauma knocks that into a cocked hat.
Along the way, we toast absent friends in the finest vintage of Dandelion & Burdock while extrapolating the succession of Doctors we might have had if the late Ron Moody had succeeded Patrick Troughton – William Hartnell, Pat Troughton, Ron Moody, the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man and Christopher Lee in cricket whites. We discover that Hayden’s great-grandfather was the first person ever to sell Ford motor cars…(listen in to hear the end of that sentence). We also hear of Mark’s memories of seeing Matthew Waterhouse in a stage production of Treasure Island and the role of “Inherit the Wind” in the Cockram family acquiring their first VCR.
Only on Diddly Dum.
