DIDDLY DUM PODCAST 052 – When Guides Collide   Leave a comment


The Four Faces of Delusion hold the inaugural meeting of the Diddly Dum Book Club by reviewing the New Adventures novel “Conundrum” (1994) by Steve Lyons. We also take advantage of the linking theme to review the Second Doctor story “The Mind Robber” from 1968.

Before that, Hayden looks forward to taking the TARDIS Set Tour at Cardiff next week while Matt reminisces about the game of Tour Guide Top Trumps which ensued when the TARDIS tour guides found out what he did for a living.

Along the way, we discover why Matt’s plan to attend a convention cosplaying as DCI Jack Meadows was frustrated; Doc explains the usefulness of “The Faraway Tree” for getting children to observe their bedtime; we learn how the root cause of all Ace’s character problems is that she’s more Morrissey fan than street fighter; and we end by asking are the days of conventions numbered?

Terrance Dicks drops in briefly to settle an argument over Spiridon and Exxilon. And we challenge politically correct censorship by asking the ultimate question of life, the universe and everything – shorts and sweaters for Enid Blyton’s kids or jeans and sweatshirts?
