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

cosplay

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.

DIDDLY DUM PODCAST 053 – Doc’s Comedy Hour   Leave a comment

BBC MOTTO 4

In this, the second of his occasional series of laser-guided rib-ticklers, Hayden talks to fellow member of the Four Faces of Delusion, Doc, about his tastes in comedy and illustrates these with some toothsome clips.

From The Goon Show through to Frasier via the many radio and TV byways of his life, Doc opens his soul to the faithless listener. Accordingly, you’re advised to have garlic and holy water to hand.

DIDDLY DUM PODCAST 052 – When Guides Collide   Leave a comment

TRUMPS 5

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?

DIDDLY DUM PODCAST 051 – Podcasters Assemble 2   Leave a comment

Citadel 4

Hayden brings us the second in his occasional series of “Podcasters Assemble” where he chats to a dazzling international array of fellow Doctor Who podcasters and tries to understand what makes them tick.

This week, we hear Erika (for it is she) Ensign from the “Verity!” podcast, Marc (for it is he) Atkinson from the “Progtor Who” podcast, Christian (for it is he) Cawley from “The Podkast With a K” and Phil (for it is he) Cannon from the “Who’s He?” podcast.

You may by now have noticed that we’re pushing for the formal introduction of “(for it is s/he)” as a title for Doctor Who podcasters, the Jedi Knights of fandom. On the subject of which, we close this week’s podcast with a little tribute to another knight of the airwaves.

DIDDLY DUM PODCAST 050 – Shepherd’s Bush 90210   Leave a comment

Collage books 3

The Four Faces of Delusion pick up from last week’s podcast on the TARGET novelisations by looking at the Doctor Who books published since 1989.

Being between jobs has really lit a fire under Matt who reveals that there’s little he doesn’t know about all these book ranges. This gives a well earned rest to Doc who knows bugger all about any of them.

Along the way, we learn how books kept Hayden from a life a crime and we hear of Matt’s visit to the roof of BBC Television Centre last week and meeting the great Graeme Harper while he was at it.

And of course we discuss the news that Chris Chibnall is to replace The Great Sage as showrunner.

DIDDLY DUM PODCAST 049 – Chris Achilleos Interview   Leave a comment

achilleos

We mark the podcast’s 2nd birthday with an interview with titan of the TARGET Doctor Who books range Chris Achilleos. We build up to the interview by revisiting our memories of those novelisations and which bookshops we used to buy them from.

Along the way, Hayden reveals his first foray into crime, Doc is taken to Aladdin’s cave but not allowed to sample the treasures and Matt reveals that his grandmother went to school with Barry Letts. We even find out which TARGET book led Doc into a lifelong dislike of cockney sailor Ben Jackson.

We also celebrate Hayden finally buying a decent microphone.

DIDDLY DUM PODCAST 048 – A Happy New Year to All of You at Home   Leave a comment

2015 GR Q1

The Four Faces of Delusion break the podcasting fourth wall to wish all of their faithless listeners a very happy 2016 in this the delayed Christmas podcast.

Our podcasting heroes talk about their Christmas presents in general and Doctor Who/Dalek annuals in particular before reviewing “The Husbands of River Song” and then looking back on Series Nine as a whole.

As is now traditional for a Diddly Dum Christmas (i.e. it happened for the first time last year), Doc dons the mantle of the great Bob Holness to test Hayden and Matt’s memory of the 2015 podcasts (follow along on the Gold Run screen above).

In a triumph of investigatory fan journalism, the Diddly Dumbers break their exclusive scoop by revealing the names of the new writing duo who Steven Moffat claims will make our brains explode. Along the way, they also discuss the outrageously un-politically-correct content of 1970s annuals, the new “Curse of the Black Spot” lego pirate ship set, Sean Pertwee’s karaoke rendition of the “Fireball XL-5” song, River Song marrying Robert Robinson and Matt rocks the world of fandom by calling for Doctor Who to be rescheduled opposite Coronation Street on Wednesday nights.
