    Listen in to the second half of our Pat Troughton tribute as we celebrate “The Enemy of the World” and “The War Games”. But first, Allan returns from his mysterious absence last time to regale us with tales of visiting the Doctor Who set in Cardiff.

    Along the way, we compare the prospects of a world controlled by Tony Hancock’s idiot flatmate or a galaxy controlled by the Rentaghost landlord, and we consider Pat Troughton’s swan song as a theme for the loss our childhood.

  • DIDDLY DUM PODCAST 072 - A Mild Shampoo for the Mind

    Episode Duration: 0 minutes and 0 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    For the second podcast running, the Five Faces of Delusion are only four this week as Allan has gone missing, summoned away at the last minute from his Northern fastness on the Welsh Marches by a mysterious invitation to Cardiff from the movers and shakers of Doctor Who. Our faithless listeners can rest assured that, come next time, we’ll be pumping Allan thoroughly in the debriefing room (audio only alas). In his absence this week, we start a two-part tribute to Patrick Troughton, covering “The Highlanders” and “Tomb of the Cybermen”.

    Along the way, Hayden’s Jam Pantry (hitherto thought impregnable) gets raided; we examine the curious role played by the Spurs Supporters Club at the Battle of Culloden (with a rare find of a piece of music more ear-shredding than bagpipes); Hayden auditions for TV game shows; Toberman gets a good mind-rinse with Cyber-shampoo and we drool over the long awaited Issue 3 of Vworp Vworp magazine.

    This week, the Diddly Dum Podcast is brought to you by the letter A. Two things are missing this week – Hayden and all Doc’s notes for his Whoseum segment. As a result, only Mark and Allan have exhibits to present – a wheelbarrow full of charred fragments of blue wood (which looks surprisingly like the debris of a TARDIS) and a broken link.

    Along the way, Allan performs his first ever live stand-up gig, we investigate the unexpected origins of the presidential salute, we follow what happened to the Dalek ship prop after Daleks – Invasion Earth: 2150 AD (1966), and we examine the link between Shakespeare’s punk phase and Vincent Price’s horror films.

    This week, The Five Faces of Delusion take a look at two stories from Jon Pertwee’s final season. With “Invasion of the Dinosaurs” we show how, if you look beyond the ropey models and the heavy “Eastenders” influences, this story is essentially Malcolm Hulke doing to the Communist Party of Great Britain what Robert Holmes did to the Inland Revenue with “The Sun Makers”. With “Planet of the Spiders” we draw a direct line from this story to the twin literary masterpieces “Flowers for Algernon” and “Mrs Frisby and the Rats of NIMH”.

    Along the way, we look at how Rick James was knocked off the top spot he’d occupied since “The Mutants”. We question whether one’s attitude to the Third Doctor’s authoritarianism changes with the onset of fatherhood. We explain how The Whomobile was the Wonderbra of its day. And we poke our noses into Richard Franklin’s political career.

    Mark’s daughter, Polly, was so inspired by “Invasion of the Dinosaurs” that she wants to watch another UNIT story next. Send us your recommendations for the best UNIT story for Mark to watch with her.

    (00:57:50) Jon Pertwee drives The Whomobile around Chingford on 26 July 1975.

    (00:58:37) It’s been suggested that The Whomobile owed more than a little to the design of the X.P.A.C. 400 Air Car, built in the early 1960s by George Barris (King of the Kustomisers).

    (00:59:34) Daryl Joyce’s painting of The Whomobile chasing Lupton in the gyrocopyter.

    (01:00:33) The Daypol tooling master-model of The Whomobile was intended for production in 1991 but was never produced.

    (01:01:03) The Corgi tooling master model of The Whomobile.

    (01:06:05) The jewel thief from Episode 1 of “Invasion of the Dinosaurs” is played by Gordon Reid who’s better known to Doc’s generation as the voice of Angel Two from Radio 4 sci-fi series “Earthsearch”.

    cake-05Come and have a piece of cake as we celebrate the third birthday of the Diddly Dum Podcast. Originally intending to review “The Return of Doctor Mysterio”, we get slightly sidetracked by listing what Doctor Who goodies we got for Christmas. Then Hayden regales us with a tale of his Christmas visit to The Centre for Computing History in Cambridge where he discovered playable games consoles and games from his youth.

    Eventually, we leave the subject of the 90s Doctor Who pinball game and the Activision Ghostbusters game from the 80s and turn to chatting about the latest Doctor Who Christmas Special.

    Along the way, we discover Peter Cushing’s unusual hobby, we keep finding William Russell in the seasonal TV fare, and we look back to a very early podcast where we covered an early computer game featuring the voices of Jon Pertwee and Ian Dury.

    bfi-4This week, the opening “what have we been doing since last time” section takes longer than the main theme section. That’s what happens when all four members of The Six Faces of Delusion discover a social life.

    Before we tackle the first four episodes of “Class”, Allan attends the unveiling of Jon Pertwee’s blue plaque and meets a shedload of celebrities. Mark visits Dungeness Power Station (a.k.a. The Nuton Power Complex from “Claws of Axos”) before coming face to face with dinosaurs which never existed. Doc and Hayden attend the premier of the animated “Power of the Daleks” at the British Film Institute and hide from a roomful of uber-fans while the celebrities hide in the green room.

    harry-2Today marks the 30th anniversary of the sad early death of that stalwart of Doctor Who’s golden age, Ian Marter. Today would also have been Ian’s 72nd birthday.

    In tribute to Ian, we dedicate the whole of this podcast to celebrating his work in acting, writing and switching on Illuminations in seedy Lancastrian seaside resorts.

    Along the way, we look at the philosophical chasm between PS4.99 and PS5.00, we translate the Duke of Forgill’s family motto, we compare “Dr Who Meets Scratchman” to “The Boy Who Kicked Pigs” and we look at the sequence of great historical inventors: Heron, Trevithick, Watt, Baker.

    This week, The Four Faces of Delusion become Six as we welcome two new hosts to the Diddly Dum Podcast – friends of the show (now merely “of the show”) Mark John and Allan Lear. By way of introducing them and their backgrounds, we look at how each of us got involved in Doctor Who fandom.

    Along the way, Allan covers holograms on the Liverpool waterfront, Mark tells how he once nearly ruined a theatre performance by Jan Chappell (Cally from Blake’s 7), Hayden recalls his seminal “Gallifrey Galaxy Globetrotters” work for Celestial Toyroom and Doc asks why, if monkeys are so smart, they’ve never produced anything like Northern Soul.

    This week, The Four Faces of Delusion become Six as we welcome two new hosts to the Diddly Dum Podcast – friends of the show (now merely “of the show”) Mark John and Allan Lear. By way of introducing them and their backgrounds, we look at how each of us got involved in Doctor Who fandom.

    Along the way, Allan covers holograms on the Liverpool waterfront, Mark tells how he once nearly ruined a theatre performance by Jan Chappell (Cally from Blake’s 7), Hayden recalls his seminal “Gallifrey Galaxy Globetrotters” work for Celestial Toyroom and Doc asks why, if monkeys are so smart, they’ve never produced anything like Northern Soul.

Oh, and in the middle of that, they also dive into “Licence to Kill”, Timothy Dalton’s second outing as 007, which redefined the word “gritty” for the children of the late 1980s.

    bfi-nerdsWe’re joined this week by Mark John to talk about the whole subject of the Missing Episodes, triggered by the mysterious animated clip from “Power of the Daleks”.

    Along the way, Hayden gives tips on haggling for annuals, we discover Pamela Nash’s real name, Mark relates how he trained himself to hold his pen like Mavic Chen and the scales finally fall from Doc’s eyes about the true nature of The Restoration Team.

    In preparation for any discussion which might touch on the Troughton era, the Whoseum bar has been well stocked with Bloody Victorias – cherry brandy, tomato juice and sticks of celery.

    oompa6Our guest at The Whoseum this week is Allan Lear, one of the eminences grises of the Doctor Who Appreciation Society. Allan brings along a stolen library hardback copy of The Deadly Assassin, a newspaper clipping of Mrs Lear with a Dalek and a collection of haemovore nail clippings.

    Along the way, we encounter “the worst first draft of a Lewis Carroll novel ever”, we debate the ideal size of bathroom towelling (from face flannel to bathsheet) to be clutching when opening a hotel door to unexpectedly find Dominic Glynn on the threshold, we discuss the colour of the Second Doctor’s eyes, we hail the histrionic apotheosis of Nicholas Parsons and we eviscerate the Ontological Argument.

    We're joined in the marble halls of The Whoseum this week by Marc (for it is he) Atkinson of the Progtor Who Podcast.

    Marc arrived driving a forklift as it was the only way he could transport his item for exhibition and discussion - the "Doctor Who: The Vault" book from the 50th anniversary.

    We also look at Ed Stradling's trilogy of musical blockbusters, "The Doctor Who Years" tapes.

    Along the way, Hayden and Marc chat about music while the Whoseum computer translates for a confused and unmusical Doc. We remember the taste of Dalek Death Ray ice lollies from the 1970s. And Hayden relates yet another jammy anecdote from his life.

    (00:37:40) "Doctor Who: The Vault" by Marcus Hearn was released for Doctor Who's 50th anniversary.

    (00:43:55) Our co-host (when he turns up), Matt recently interviewed Louise Jameson (Leela) at the Fab Cafe in Manchester. Footage of his interview can be found on Youtube here (part 1) and here (part 2) and includes in the background at one point the TV commercial for the Denys Fisher Doctor Who toy range from 1977.

    (00:49:00) "The Amazing World of Doctor Who" - other pictures on our Tumblr page here.

    (00:51:22) "The Doctor Who Years" was a streaming video, charting the history of Doctor Who, which was broadcast on BBCi's official Doctor Who website to coincide with the return of the series to BBC Television screens in 2005, and was intended to present a potted history of the original Doctor Who series, broadcast between 1963-1989. The video was presented in three parts, The Sixties, The Seventies and The Eighties, and featured material from every Doctor Who serial, presented chronologically and accompanied by narrative text and pop music that had featured in the UK Singles Chart at the time the clips were originally broadcast. The Sixties was produced by SVS, The Seventies and The Eighties were produced by Ed Stradling. The videos were commissioned by James Goss, then editor of the BBCi's Doctor Who website.

He is genetically engineered to be immune to almost all known toxins, can submerge in strong acid unaffected, and is able to withstand a vacuum in his bare skin.

    13521814_10154283921169695_2018628408_nRob Irwin of The Doctor Who Show Podcast traverses the globe to visit The Diddly Dum Whoseum and to present three treasured memories of Doctor Who for exhibition.

    We take a look at Rob’s 25mm miniatures, his appearance on a TV quiz cosplaying the Fifth Doctor and the “A Celebration” book by Peter Haining.

    Along the way, the conversation veers off down the side-roads of Alfred Hitchcock’s Three Investigators, the musical links between The Young Ones and The All New Pink Panther Show and between Juliet Bravo and Mork & Mindy, the jingles of ITV regional franchises and cosplaying.

    And please take the opportunity to donate to The Rev’s good cause.

    SHOWNOTES

    (00:00:02) Our erstwhile co-host, The Rev (Andy), will be racing as part of Team Zoom Rocket this Saturday 25th June at the Humber Bridge Soapbox Derby to raise funds for Yorkshire Air Ambulance. All at Diddly Dum wish Andy and Zoom Rocket well and would ask all those who remember The Rev fondly to visit his Just Giving page here and pledge a donation, as small or as large as you like, in aid of a very good cause.

    (00:02:38) This week’s guest is Rob Irwin of The Doctor Who Show podcast and formerly of the Who Wars podcast.

    (00:24:58) The Three Investigators is an American juvenile detective book series first published as “Alfred Hitchcock and the Three Investigators”. It was created by Robert Arthur, Jr., who believed using a famous person such as movie director Hitchcock would attract attention.

    (00:41:43) Rob’s first exhibit for The Whoseum is his set of 25mm Citadel miniatures of Doctor Who characters. Individual pics of this range can be found on our Tumblr page here. There are also some pics of this range can be found on our Tumblr page here later painted versions here. These first came to Rob’s attention in this article by Gary Russell in Doctor Who Magazine #119.

    (00:51:14) Dare you enter the world of Napoleonic Teddy Bears with popguns? Do you?

    (00:58:29) Rob’s books which we discuss can be found in the background to this photo.

    (01:00:02) “Sound & Vision” can be found on Phonic FM on the fourth Monday evening of each month in which wonderful collections of music are put together by Dan, Richard and Lee. The upcoming show will be called “Robotopia”, looking at the music of robots, androics and cyborgs of film and TV. “Sound & Vision’s” back catalogue can be found here. Their tribute to the music of Ennio Morricone can be found here and their wistful salute to the music of the dear departed Thames TV can be found here. On a more Doctor Whoish note, their show dedicated to the BBC radiophonic workshop can be found here, and to the music of classic Doctor Who here.

    (01:10:07) Jeremy Paxman tells the Newsnight audience exactly what he thinks of the new breed of BBC news manager.

    (01:11:10) Jeremy Paxman presents the weather under protest.

    (01:12:03) Rob’s second exhibit for The Whoseum is the missing-presumed-wiped episode of ABC’s “The Afternoon Show” in 1988 where he took part in a 25th anniversary Doctor Who quiz. The glitzier quiz from the following year survives here.

    (01:26:40) Starting around 15 mins into episode Extra 9.6 of the “On the Time Lash” podcast, Ben and Mark discuss the cut-throat world of cosplaying competitions for 5 year old.

    (01:27:40) Matt Smith little knew the consequences of stepping down from the role of the Doctor. For it launched the media career of our very own, and very ungelled Hayden.

    (01:30:46) The copyright cosplayer.

    13521814_10154283921169695_2018628408_nRob Irwin of The Doctor Who Show Podcast traverses the globe to visit The Diddly Dum Whoseum and to present three treasured memories of Doctor Who for exhibition.

    We take a look at Rob’s 25mm miniatures, his appearance on a TV quiz cosplaying the Fifth Doctor and the “A Celebration” book by Peter Haining.

    Along the way, the conversation veers off down the side-roads of Alfred Hitchcock’s Three Investigators, the musical links between The Young Ones and The All New Pink Panther Show and between Juliet Bravo and Mork & Mindy, the jingles of ITV regional franchises and cosplaying.

    And please take the opportunity to donate to The Rev’s good cause.

    SHOWNOTES

    (00:00:02) Our erstwhile co-host, The Rev (Andy), will be racing as part of Team Zoom Rocket this Saturday 25th June at the Humber Bridge Soapbox Derby to raise funds for Yorkshire Air Ambulance. All at Diddly Dum wish Andy and Zoom Rocket well and would ask all those who remember The Rev fondly to visit his Just Giving page here and pledge a donation, as small or as large as you like, in aid of a very good cause.

    (00:02:38) This week’s guest is Rob Irwin of The Doctor Who Show podcast and formerly of the Who Wars podcast.

    (00:24:58) The Three Investigators is an American juvenile detective book series first published as “Alfred Hitchcock and the Three Investigators”. It was created by Robert Arthur, Jr., who believed using a famous person such as movie director Hitchcock would attract attention.

    (00:41:43) Rob’s first exhibit for The Whoseum is his set of 25mm Citadel miniatures of Doctor Who characters. Individual pics of this range can be found on our Tumblr page here. There are also some pics of this range can be found on our Tumblr page here later painted versions here. These first came to Rob’s attention in this article by Gary Russell in Doctor Who Magazine #119.

    (00:51:14) Dare you enter the world of Napoleonic Teddy Bears with popguns? Do you?

    (00:58:29) Rob’s books which we discuss can be found in the background to this photo.

    (01:00:02) “Sound & Vision” can be found on Phonic FM on the fourth Monday evening of each month in which wonderful collections of music are put together by Dan, Richard and Lee. The upcoming show will be called “Robotopia”, looking at the music of robots, androics and cyborgs of film and TV. “Sound & Vision’s” back catalogue can be found here. Their tribute to the music of Ennio Morricone can be found here and their wistful salute to the music of the dear departed Thames TV can be found here. On a more Doctor Whoish note, their show dedicated to the BBC radiophonic workshop can be found here, and to the music of classic Doctor Who here.

    (01:10:07) Jeremy Paxman tells the Newsnight audience exactly what he thinks of the new breed of BBC news manager.

    (01:11:10) Jeremy Paxman presents the weather under protest.

    (01:12:03) Rob’s second exhibit for The Whoseum is the missing-presumed-wiped episode of ABC’s “The Afternoon Show” in 1988 where he took part in a 25th anniversary Doctor Who quiz. The glitzier quiz from the following year survives here.

    (01:26:40) Starting around 15 mins into episode Extra 9.6 of the “On the Time Lash” podcast, Ben and Mark discuss the cut-throat world of cosplaying competitions for 5 year old.

    (01:27:40) Matt Smith little knew the consequences of stepping down from the role of the Doctor. For it launched the media career of our very own, and very ungelled Hayden.

    (01:30:46) The copyright cosplayer.

    (01:32:04) The TARDIS console cosplayer.

    (01:37:12) The TIE fighter helmet on Antiques Roadshow.

    (01:41:04) Rob’s third exhibit for The Whoseum is the Peter Haining book “Doctor Who: A Celebration”, published in 1983.

    (01:55:20) “The Amazing World of Doctor Who” – other pictures on our Tumblr page here.

    (02:03:48) To those familiar with “The Daleks” comic strip from TV Century 21 comic in the 1960s, Davros is a mere usurper. The true creator of the Daleks was of course Yarvelling.

    clipping 10This week’s visitor to the Diddly Dum Whoseum is Mark Cockram of the Blue Box Podcast and the Nerdology podcast. Mark becomes only the second guest to enter those hallowed portals for the third time.

    Mark brings along The Special Edition DVD of “Inferno” and we celebrate the world of Doctor Who DVD extras. Hayden presents his prized collection of Anniversary Postage Stamps signed by Tom Baker and we hear about the day he met the great man. Doc’s exhibit is the page of the Radio Times covering Saturday 26 February 1972. On that evening, episode one of The “Sea Devils” was broadcast, the first story Doc can remember. We use this as an excuse to look at how BBC1 Saturday evening scheduling has changed down the years. Can you recognise some of the 70s and 80s theme tunes Doc plays before the boys guess them?

    Finally, never one to miss relating a jammy experience, Hayden tells us about the day Tamsin Grieg asked if she could join him at his coffee shop table.

    In this, the first episode of a podcast which has a licence to thrill and occasionally excite, Hayden is joined by podcasters and Bond fanatics Rob Irwin and Steve Hayward as they look back on Pierce Brosnan’s debut entry in the 007 franchise, GoldenEye. Hear the boys chat about sadist lust murderers, seamless Russian-to-Scottish transitioned accents, Bond sticking it to the sponsors with the aid of a tank and, of course, the legendary N64 game. Plus find out which James Bond classic we’ll be discussing next time.

    Armour picsThis week, we have only three Faces of Delusion as, in Matt’s absence, Doc and Hayden attempt a two-hander podcast.

    We start with Hayden reminiscing about his weekend at “The Capitol” – the Doctor Who Appreciation Society’s 40th anniversary event. If you’ve ever felt envious of his seeming ability to fall on his feet in any fan situation, then you’ve not heard anything yet as his jamminess soars to new heights.

    Then, inspired by last time’s discussion of the “Genesis of the Daleks” LP, we try out the audio-only soundtracks of three Doctor Who stories which we’ve previously only ever watched. Would they work as LPs?
