  • PODCAST 017 - Simon in the Land of Chalk Drawings

    7 August 2014 (10:48pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 0 minutes and 0 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Our the latest podcast we invite another guest to present a selection of exhibits for permanent display in The Whoseum and to talk to us about why they touch his Doctor Who fan’s heart.

    Our guest this time is Simon Brett – one of The Five Faces of Delusion running The Blue Box Podcast, illustrator for much of the Doctor Who content in Starburst Magazine, husband, father and all-round good egg.

    Simon (for it is he) presents exhibits which spark talk amongst other things of General Ironicus’ purple light, the use of disposable lighters in the marketing of Doctor Who Weekly, setting up your own Doctor Who convention from scratch and leads to an impassioned defence of the BBC licence fee. Along the way, The Rev launches his one-man campaign for Hull to host the Olympics, Doc takes the media to task for tacitly insulting every city in the UK except Glasgow and Al finally discovers the limits of Doc’s interest in comic strip art.

    SHOW NOTES

    Friend of the Show, Simon Brett, visits The Whoseum. Some of Simon’s illustration work can be found here.

    Our guest, Simon, isn’t of course the Simon from “Simon in the Land of Chalk Drawings”. That was just a hilarious conceit. Laugh? We nearly did. However, his artwork for Starburst Magazine is so good that it really does come true and no-one can object to being associated with a series voiced by Bernard Cribbins himself.

  • PODCAST 016 - ANDREW CARTMEL

    The Three Who Drool welcome Andrew Cartmel, Doctor Who’s script editor throughout the Seventh Doctor’s era, to the Diddly Dum Whoseum.

    Happy to be getting even one exhibit presented to the Whoseum by a bona fide Doctor Who mover and shaker, the Diddly Dumbers’ collective jaw hit the exquisite mosaics of the exhibition hall’s floor when the progenitor of The Cartmel Masterplan brought along six (!) and explained how each one spoke to him of a memory of Doctor Who

    Which era’s theme music arrangement is his favourite? Who are his favourite artists? Which classic Doctor Who story was he asked to watch when he took over as script editor so that he’d know what the show was capable of at its height? Which spec(ulative) script led to a classic classic? Which classic costume does he remember most fondly? And which of his colleagues from the 1980s joins Joanna Lumley as only the second human being presented to the Whoseum? Along the way, we chat about Andrew’s books, Script Doctor and Through Time, and even get something of an exclusive peek into Andrew’s coming projects.

    So come and listen to Andrew Cartmel as you’ve never heard him before. The Diddly Dumbers also chat about Monty Python’s swan song, the new Series 8 trailer and the reaction of New Yorkers to The Rev’s genre T-shirts when he visited The Big Apple last week.

    Frank Bellamy was a British comics artist. Among other things, he produced artwork for Radio Times covers and Radio Times Doctor Who comic strips. He produced artwork for the TV21 Comic, including Thunderbirds (1966-6) and Captain Scarlet & the Mysterons (1968). He also drew the Garth comic strip for the Daily Mail from 1971 to 1976. Here also is some of his original art for the Sea Devils.

    Andrew Skilleter is an artist who painted a number of original Doctor Who novelisation covers.

    Although we’ve been unable to find a copy of David Roach’s interview with Alan Moore from the Hellfire fanzine, it does look as if parts of it can be found in this book. Frank Bellamy and David Roach also feature here in True Brit.

    “The Winged Avenger” – an episode from The Avengers (1967)

    “The Dalek Chronicles” was a Doctorless comic strip from the TV21 comic. Not only was this comic strip the first to solve the problem of the Daleks flying, more importantly it was also the source for the coolest ever Dalek Emperor. Stand aside “Evil of the Daleks”. Take a back seat “Parting of the Ways”. Fine as your Emperor Daleks were, they weren’t a path on the acme of coolness which was The Golden Emperor from “The Dalek Chronicles”. Clearly the inspiration for the Emperor in “Remembrance of the Daleks”.

    Look and Learn was a British weekly educational magazine for children containing the long running science fiction comic strip, “The Trigan Empire”, drawn much in the style of Frank Bellamy. This primer in cool empire building taught British children that no imperialist dream of bringing Roman armour and homoerotically tight flying suits to a world can be beyond a race which has mastered the concept of building foundations for its walls.

    The Diddly Dum Podcasters have taken The Whoseum on tour and visited Conrad and Will from the Desert Island Who Podcast marooned on their desert island. Will alas did not survive the shipwreck and Conrad had an accident with a dodgy ring modulator.

    However, they proudly present The Whoseum with a very special exhibit which sparks off much debate about the notion of a female Doctor. Along the way, Al produces a battered old tin, Doc asserts to much disbelief that Purdy really did hide in a shop window in her pyjamas and The Rev causes jaws to drop all round as he reserves judgment on…?

    Following their Scottish themed podcast, the Three Who Drool take advantage of their detox course at The Nuthutch in Llanfairfach to discuss three Doctor Who stories linked by the theme of Wales.

    The stories covered are The Green Death, Delta & the Bannermen and The Unquiet Dead. In view of Mr Sneed touching up Rose during The Unquiet Dead, "Fanny By Gaslight" was the first choice for a podcast title but "Doctor Huw" was thought more descriptive.

    Along the way, Al mourns the loss of Rik Mayall, Doc hails the return of sanity to Doctor Who Magazine's fan polls and The Rev encounters Terrance Dicks, Mike Tucker and Andrew Cartmel at the recent DWAS Myth Maker event.

    Episode Duration: 0 minutes and 0 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    We never explained how Al, Doc and The Rev escaped the supernatural attack at the Devil's Hump dig in the closing seconds of Podcast 010. Counter-intuitively, given the Doctor Who connection, the resolution is even more thrilling than the cliffhanger. However, explanations must wait as this week we find our podcasting heroes very much the worse for wear.

    All those weeks visiting iconic drinking establishments from Doctor Who lore have taken their toll on the livers of The Diddly Dumbers. On medical advice, the Three Who Drool have retired to Llanfairfach in South Wales for an intense course of detoxification at The Nuthutch.

    Wracked by delirium tremens, the Diddly Dumbers see visions of creepy crawlies running all over the house and their thoughts turn naturally to instances of giant insects in Doctor Who. Listen in as, between restorative nibbles at Nancy's homegrown fungus, the boys reminisce about the Zarbi, Menoptera, Venom Grubs and Optera from The Web Planet, the Wirrn from The Ark in Space and the Tritovores from The Planet of the Dead.

    So what was the resolution of the cliffhanger at the end of the last podcast where Al and The Rev seemed to have fallen victim to a paranormal attack at the Devil's Hump dig? Well, we're following the "Timelash" theory of explaining plot resolutions and not telling you. There is an elaborate and scary explanation and we'll explain it one day if we receive enough of a public demand.

    Instead the slate is wiped clean as the Three Who Drool end their tour of Doctor Who drinking establishments and attend the glittering showbiz event which is the grand opening of “The Whoseum”. Each of the Diddly Dumbers presents to the museum a special Who-related item.

    Listen in as they ooh and aah in ecstasy over the memories these items hold for them of Doctor Who. Hear The Rev reveal his musical tastes, Al his predeliction for pregnant pauses and Doc demonstrate a cardboard box he made earlier.

    This week, the Three Who Drool return to their first port of call in their epic pub crawl of drinking establishments famous in Doctor Who lore – The Cloven Hoof in the village of Devil’s End – scene of the classic Third Doctor story “The Daemons”.

    April 30th has passed into May Day and, to celebrate Beltaine, the greatest occult festival of the year (bar Halloween), the Diddly Dumbers join the villagers in performing an ancient fertility dance around the Maypole before retiring, exhausted but more fertile, to the bar to discuss three stories featuring the Devil or Devil worship – The Daemons, K9 & Company (A Girl’s Best Friend) and the double bill of The Impossible Planet/The Satan Pit.

    In which we find Al rubbin’ a hooded man, Doc slipping briefly into his alter ego of Bob Holness and the Rev winning the grand prize by completing his third Gold Run.

As Morgaine the Sunkiller and her minions from 165 Eaton Place attempt to break through the protective chalk circle drawn around the podcasters’ bar table, the Three Who Drool ponder the theme of myths and legends in Doctor Who – specifically the use of the Atlantis legend.

    In between discussing the Second Doctor story “The Underwater Menace” and the Third Doctor story “The Time Monster”, Al recalls recently meeting Tom Baker and being boomed at by the great man, Doc tells of coming across a relic from Delia Derbyshire’s schooldays and The Rev provides vital road safety tips.

    Join The Three Who Drool in the bar of The Fleur de Lys in their tour of drinking establishments iconic in Doctor Who lore.

    This time the linking theme of the podcast is Doppelgangers as the three Diddly Dumbers (if it is indeed really them) discuss Enemy of the World, The Android Invasion, Aliens of London, World War Three and Boom Town.

    In which Al rhapsodises about New Who’s debt to comic book imagery, Doc remembers annuals and The Rev reveals his previously unsuspected hero worship of Mark Gatiss.

    Remember how Sutekh threatened to keep the Doctor alive for centuries, racked by the most excruciating pain? Well, that’s nothing to the experience of a Diddly Dum Podcast which…er…shall we say overruns slightly.

    Join the Three Who Drool on their tour of iconic drinking establishments from Doctor Who lore as this week they travel across space and time to the 52nd century in order to sample the booze at The Maldovarium.

    Alas the patron wasn’t on the premises (lost his head, poor thing) and so, disappointed at missing the celebrity black marketeer, the Diddly Dumbers muse of the subject of Failed Alien Holidays.

    The stories covered are The Leisure Hive, Paradise Towers and Midnight – during which The Rev goes wall-scrawling with the Kangs and Doc tears the Chief Caretaker a new waste disposal chute while Al feeds us with celebrity deaths in between unscheduled visits to the Gents.

    The Three Who Drool have a night out drinking at The Cloven Hoof in Devil’s End where, over the din of the Morris Men practising outside, they discuss how the life of the fan changes as we grow older. Fuelled by the free champagne sent over by Miss Hawthorne, they consider the institutions of Doctor Who fandom.

    J R Southall joins The Three Who Drool for Part 1 of a review of the Key to Time season.

    A long time ago, in a cyberspace far, far away….

    It is a period of civil war. Rebel fans, striking from a hidden forum, have won their first victory against the evil Corporation.

    During the battle, fans managed to steal secret plans to the BBC’s ultimate weapon, iTunes, an armored commercial juggernaut with enough power to destroy an entire franchise.

    Pursued by the BBC's sinister agents, the Restoration Team, four brave podcasters race home aboard their egos, custodians of the stolen plans that can save their show and restore the missing episodes to the galaxy…

    Listen in to the holographic message contained in this podcast unit as the rebel scum are joined by JRba (the Hutt) Southall in Part 1 of a review of Doctor Who's first attempt at a series arc in Season 16 (The Key to Time season) – in which we find that Al keeps Issue 5 of Doctor Who Weekly under his mattress, that Doc’s ability to siphon coffee through his nostrils is useful for clearing out Thrill Sucker infestations, that JR could stage a palace coup in an empty room and in which The Rev reveals the criminal masterminds behind lumpy custard.

    We choose our fave stories in this our first podcast – in which we find that an empty 1970s Dalek bubble bath counts as an action figure, that there’s no tea for the Doctor and Harry, that the show has a missing comedy story and that savages can look great in rugby shirts.
