DIDDLY DUM PODCAST 054 – Conventionality Belongs to Yesterday   Leave a comment


Paul Winter, the Co-ordinator of the Doctor Who Appreciation Society, joins the Four Faces of Delusion to talk about conventions and whether the days of the fan convention are numbered. We cover first conventions, their increasing cost, the most bizarre rules on autographs and selfies, and buying Nick Courtney drinks.

Matt talks of the magic of meeting Peter Capaldi. Hayden regales us with tales of the day he consoled a despondent Sylvester McCoy on his shoulder and Terrance Dicks bought him a cider. Meanwhile Doc relates the day he wet himself at the Blackpool Doctor Who Exhibition.

Along the way, we pay a special Doctor Who themed tribute to the late Sylvia Anderson, Matt reports on his recent trip to Sheffield for The Valiant 2016 convention, and Hayden reports on his recent trip to Cardiff’s Doctor Who Experience to take the TARDIS Set Tour.

But foremost among this week’s experiences is a message from Peter Capaldi to the Diddly Dumbers and their faithless listeners.
