    It's a classic-Who first! Join Deb, Erika, and Katrina as they talk about the first Doctor Who story written by a woman, Barbara Clegg's "Enlightenment". Not for the first time, Erika and Kat go against received fan wisdom and are lukewarm at best toward this story. Good thing Deb is here to balance things out.

    What do you think of "Enlightenment"? Are you drawn in by its fascinating concepts? Or left cold by a lack of connection to what's happening on screen? Let us know in the comments!

    This week it's time for an audio commentary and it's now ordinary commentary. Oh no, because Phil, Paul and a returning Tony decided to sit down and watch Timelash. Oh dear. Still, it was their decision, so they bravely battle through the entire story bringing you facts from the day of the original broadcast.

    But they also take stock of what is happening before their eyes and notice the generous amounts of ham, how much H.G. Wells reminds them of Adric and how one actor is channelling David Bowie.

    With the this week’s episode delayed a few days, we wanted to share a bit of the fun we had at Planet Comicon in Kansas City over the weekend. One of the many pleasures we had was the chance to host a panel called Traveling the Vortex: Classic Doctor Who with Jeremy Bulloch. We had the chance to meet and talk with the actor who starred in two Doctor Who stories. Jeremy Bulloch played Tor, the Xeron rebel leader in The Space Museum and Hal the Archer in The Time Warrior. Here is the audio that we recorded at that panel.

    Doctor Who - The High Council has broken it's Episode 7 cherry this week, and I think you will agree, the High Council Members are a little punchy. Josh is joined once again by David Agnew, Stephen Harris and Robin Bland and who knows who is in the Palestinian Free State? So as we talk about guns, Liz's outfit, and William Dysart's MULTIPLE outfits, we continue our moral duty of completing this amazing long story. Great stories about Les Conrad, The Twin Dilemma, Toby's experience as Charlie Chaplin and Bin Man the Heretic, and trimmed mustaches. You will love the banter - so put this episode in your MP3 device on repeat.

    Jim’s been calling it Trust Your Baker. Unbeknownst to him, that’s our next podcast. We’ll be talking about baking.

    Yep we’re finally here. It’s been 6 or so weeks (probably, we lost track quite a while ago) since we first announced this, and it’s here. We’ve had a few stumbles along the way, but it’s really rather fun. So join us (Kiyan, Dylan, Jim and Martin) in looking back at Tom’s run as the Doctor.

    Show-notes:
    1:09 You can find that episode here. Just saying.
    5:55 For anyone who doesn’t know much about Mary Whitehouse (like us), here’s her Wiki article.
    6:58 Target was a 1977 cop drama that was apparently criticized for its over the top violence. In addition to Hinchcliffe, a bunch of other people who worked on Doctor Who were involved. Pretty cool intro though, am I right?

    Howdy do Who fans. We have some great merch items to talk through today plus our review of this hidden gem of a classic story, away we go!

    The News

    The Target Exhibition (that we’ve spoken about lots it seems over the past couple of weeks) has now been extended until Sunday 6th June so if you haven’t been ab;e to get there and check it out, you’ve got another couple of weeks to do so.

    Merch Corner

    Merch has been coming thick and fast the last week. We talk about the new 12th Doctor sonic screw driver toy from Character, the 10th Doctor Adventures starring David Tennant and Catherine Tate is finally released from Big Finish and there’s going to be a new 3rd Doctor adventure from Titan Comics, written by Paul Cornell, hitting the shelves this August.

    “The Greatest Show in the Galaxy” Review

    When you think of the 7th Doctor’s era you don’t generally think about this story, it’s like it’s fallen into a trap street. Well this week we dive into the Psychic Circus and get look in detail at the story, writing and production. Does it do enough for us to laugh at the clowns(!) or do we walk away with soggy candy floss?

    Thanks as always for listening and your thoughts on this week’s review story. Next week it’s 11th Doctor’s turn with Victory of the Daleks and we look forward to your thoughts on that. We’d also like your opinion on where you’d like us to do a Big Finish review after that, send us a tweet or Facebook message. Have a brilliant week and until next time – Allons-y!

    Hello again, Sweeties! That's right, River Song is back... but is about time? Or way too soon? That's what Josh, Ashley, and Rachel are looking to find out in episode 174 of The Oncoming Storm! This time around, River is popping up in the latest 8th Doctor Box set, Doom Coalition 2. But before we can get to River in the set, there are 3 other stories to discuss. Beachhead by Nicolas Briggs sees the Doctor facing off against the Voord once more. Then a new villain hits the scene in Scenes from her Life by John Dorney. The Doctor heads back to San Francisco in 1906 to stop the plans of the new villain in The Gift by Marc Platt. And finally, River makes her return in The Sonomancer by Matt Fitton. Will it be a knock down drag out like the last time River was discussed? Or will yours actually agree? The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got the best damn 8th Doctor companion since Fitz Kreiner. And I'll stand by that!

    The Human Palindrome, Mark Cockram of the Blue Box Podcast, joins the Four Faces of Delusion to make a podcasting quartet. This week, we shake the Doctor Who world to its foundations as we compile a dossier of disloyal quotes from fans of the show pushing for for changes at the top. Gasp as Russell T Davies attacks epic series arcs. Recoil as Steven Moffat demands an end to Gallifreyan back-story. No more preview tapes for those two.

    Along the way, we cover scandals so shocking that they have to be censored from the podcast. Matt tells of his disappointment at not meeting Mark Strickson despite having dressed as Vorshak from “Warriors of the Deep” specially for him, but a chance meeting with an old friend cheers him up. We help Jon Pertwee to redeem an old Saturday evening favourite (though no-one will admit it). And the flower of the week is the Lupin.

    SHOWNOTES

    (00:00:00) This week’s guest is Mark Cockram of the Blue Box Podcast.

    (00:12:50) Our dossier of disloyal fan comments was filed among the Doctor Who Magazine back catalogue, specifically issue 279 (June 1999). Images can be found on the October page of our Tumblr site.

    (00:56:45) What would Captain Picard look like with hair?

    (00:37:35) Jon Pertwee appeared on BBC’s “Noel’s House Party” on 19 March 1994 after having received his “Gotcha” (just think elaborate Candid Camera-esque practical joke).

    (00:57:35) Here’s the Monty Python “Dennis Moore” sketch (a.k.a the Lupins sketch) which had completely slipped Doc’s mind.

    (01:08:50) Lenny the Lion was a ventriloquist puppet which used to appear on British television. You can see why the Doctor uses him as a term of abuse.

    Peter Capaldi makes to throw his birthday cake in Maisie Williams’s face.

    This week, Matt has been caught in a time bubble while punting on the Irwell. What does the future hold for Hayden, alone in the Whoseum with only Pampisford Aylesbury (Doc’s Zygon double) and a wonky Time Space Visualiser for company?

    The remaining members of the Four Faces of Delusion nevertheless review the “Invasion of the Zygons” / “Inversion of the Zygons” two-parter.

    Along the way, we discover how the “Robots of Death” is a trenchant allegory of people eating popcorn in cinemas, how Hayden in his youth used to fiddle the BBC’s ratings for Doctor Who and how the Brigadier is a more caring man in the TARGET novelisations than in the TV episodes.

    The white heat of technology is called upon to save the day this week as, while Doc and Hayden sit warm in The Whoseum, poor Matt still hasn’t got away from work. So during their review of the Doctor Who episodes “Sleep No More” and “Face the Raven”, one third of the Four Faces of Delusion contributes via his phone while dashing around the former Coronation Street set putting out the lights and locking the doors, and then from the top deck of the Number 192 bus during a hair-raising journey along the A6.

    Along the way, we hear how Matt avoided a Judy Finnegan moment during his own Oscars moment, we cover the BBC’s 1970s child-scarer “The Changes” and its relevance even today for bringing communities together, we bemoan Doctor Who’s habit of giving us rubbish soldiers and we debate the correct plural of hiatus.

    (00:23:28) Ena Sharples, Minnie Caldwell and Martha Longhurst in The Snug at Coronation Street’s Rovers Return.

    (00:39:40) Share the Daily Mail’s moral outrage at Clara’s death.

    (01:30:10) Doc wrote this piece on his blog several years ago, pointing out all the times that a new companion has been introduced as “feisty”.

    Once again, Matt’s hectic work schedule leaves Doc and Hayden alone in the Diddly Dum Whoseum waiting for him to Skype in from his mobile/cellphone while locking up and clocking out at work.

    As Series 9 of Doctor Who reaches its finale, The Four Faces of Delusion review “Heaven Sent” and “Hell Bent”.

    Along the way, Hayden explores Frank Herbert’s new Spiceworm/Krynoid crossover novel “The Seeds of Dune”. How Doc manipulates his Kindle font size on the London Underground to snub his fellow passengers. And how Matt had a whole world of adventures in a school cupboard.

    17:04 (GMT) - 1 Jan 2016

    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.

    (00:03:08) During his trip to New York earlier this year, Hayden visited the Hayden Planetarium where he met Aslan and Qui Gon Jinn.

    (00:26:01) K9/John Leeson regales the Doctor and Romana with a rendition of “We Wish You a Merry Christmas” in this extract from the BBC VT Christmas tape.

    (01:19:15) Steven Moffat has told us that our brains would explode if he named two new writers writing for Series 10 of Doctor Who.

    (01:24:48) This clip is of Matt Smith, Karen Gillen and Arthur Darvill singing “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” on Doctor Who Confidential.

    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.

    (00:25:35) The “Earthshock” front cover which shocked Hayden by contradicting the Fifth Doctor’s pacifism.

    (01:02:34) To all fans of the TARGET Doctor Who novelisations, Chris Achilleos’s cover artwork will be the seminal wallpaper to their childhood. Hayden was lucky enough to meet Chris last year and interview him. All of Chris’s Doctor Who cover artwork can be found here.

    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.

    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.

    (The international flavour of this week’s artwork comes courtesy of friend of the show, Simon (for it is he) Brett of the Blue Box Podcast.)

    SHOWNOTES

    (00:00:00) Our Pandemonium themed intro has been illustrated by friend of the show Simon (for it is he) Brett of the Blue Box Podcast who can claim to be one of the four original parents of the Diddly Dum Podcast. If we are the Prince Caspian of Doctor Who podcasting, just think of the Blue Boxers as Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy. Simon’s Facebook page can be found here and his website is here. The summit of his broadcasting career of course came in 2014 when he visited The Whoseum in Diddly Dum Podcast 017 (“Simon in the Land of Chalk Drawings”).

    (00:02:04) Hayden’s first guest this week is Erika (for it is she) Ensign of the “Verity!” podcast.

    (00:29:15) Hayden’s second guest this week is Marc (for it is he) Atkinson of the “Progtor Who” podcast and band Riversea.

    (00:57:06) Hayden’s third guest this week is Christian (for it is he) Cawley of the “Podkast With a K”.

    (01:21:38) Hayden’s fourth guest this week is Phil (for it is he) Cannon of the “Who’s He?” podcast.

    (01:52:10) We round off this week’s podcast with a tribute to two men who have been lost to broadcasting since we recorded our last podcast. Few Doctor Who fans’ lives have not at some stage been touched by titan of the airwaves, Sir Terry Wogan. Terry encountered many stars of Doctor Who during his interviewing career and of course his years as the great helmsman of the BBC’s Children in Need. Terry interviews Colin Baker here and interviews Jon Pertwee here. “The Five Doctors” 20th anniversary special was broadcast in the UK on Children in Need night and, after the closing credits, Terry met the then current Doctor, Peter Davidson here. He met half the stars of Doctor Who during the 1985 Children in Need night here. Our musical tribute is a clip from Terry’s 1978 recording of “The Floral Dance” which reached Number 1 in the British charts. He tries to keep his face straight in this “Top of the Pops” appearance from the time. We also recently lost Ed “Stewpot” Stewart, DJ and (to Doc’s generation) presenter of “Crackerjack” (Crackerjack).

    02:06 (GMT) - 26 Feb 2016

    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?

    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.

    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.

It told the tale of Nick Stone, a former S.A.S. officer apparently blasted into a possible future by a nuclear explosion. In this future, in a neat reversal of the classic Planet of the Apes scenario, sadistic humans oppress downtrodden genetically-altered animals (called ‘Yujees’) whom they keep as slaves.

    (01:35:35) Doc has presented for exhibition in The Whoseum the “Genesis of the Daleks” soundtrack LP (1978).

    This 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?

    It's an audio-based Extra! this week! Join Deb, Erika, and Liz as we celebrate the 20th anniversary of the first televised appearance of the 8th Doctor by talking about his first audio appearance! That's right, it's Storm Warning. And because we love Big Finish so much, we digress a LOT and talk about many other Big Finish stories we love--whether they include 8 or not. When it comes to DW audios, it's near-impossible to keep us on track, and we're A-OK with that!

    Have you heard Storm Warning? If so, what do you think of it? And do you think it's a good starting place for a new BF listener? Let us know in the comments!
