    SHOWNOTES

    (00:02:15) Photos of the covers of the 1969 and 1970 Doctor Who annuals which complete Hayden’s annuals collection can be found on our Tumblr page here.

    (00:10:50) West Kirby Rotary Club has got a very special comedy night lined up at Hoylake Social Club on Monday 16th October. Stand-up comedy will be provided by headliners Michael Legge (BBC6 Music, The Dave Gorman Show, The Alternative Comedy Experience) and Robin Ince. Robin has appeared in The Office and consulted on the writing of Skins, but is probably best know as co-host, with Professor Brian Cox, of Radio 4's The Infinite Monkey Cage.

    (00:12:21) “Who at the Playhouse” is a one day event celebrating Doctor Who and his robot companion K9. Meet the stars of Doctor Who in a non-stop day of stage interviews, celebrity autograph panels and photograph sessions on what will be the 40th anniversary of K9's first appearance on Saturday 1st October 1977.

    (00:21:28) Peter Capaldi’s script for Listen raises PS5,000 at auction for a Syrian Refugees in the UK charity.

    (00:34:59) The ladybird plague of 1976.

    (00:35:32) Doc only survived the sweltering summer of 1976 thanks to frozen Jubblies and standpipes in the streets.

    (00:37:02) Mark obtained John Challis’s autograph at The Theatre Royal, Margate in 2015.

    (01:04:28) “Jackanory” was a long-running BBC children’s television series that was designed to stimulate an interest in reading. The show was transmitted from 1965 to 1996.

    “Orange Man” is a British television advertisement for the soft drink Tango Orange and became the “You Know When You’ve Been Tango’d” campaign in the 1990s and 2000s. The advertisement features an orange man slapping a Tango drinker across the cheeks, a wacky metaphor for tasting Tango, and was intended as a reaction against the norm of “cause and effect” television advertising at the time was largely focused on scenarios where peoples lives were improved by the product being advertised. Orange Man caused controversy after reports of injuries when children began copying the events of the advertisement in school playgrounds, and was subsequently banned, with two other versions of Orange Man replacing it, both showing different scenarios aside from slapping.

    (01:24:05) “Recessional” is a poem by Rudyard Kipling. It was composed for Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee, in 1897.

    (01:24:05) The Dorothy L Sayers novel referred to here is “The Five Red Herrings”.

    (01: ) This audio clip of Sylvia Coleridge is from the “Blakes 7” S02E11 “Gambit”.

    “Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,

    Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone,

    Put crepe bows round the white necks of the public doves,

    Let PC McGarry wear black cotton gloves.”

    The Whoseum is in deepest mourning this week for the loss of that titan of our childhood, Brian Cant. Nevertheless, Series 10 continue apace and reviews of “Empress of Mars” and “The Eaters of Light” are called for.

    Along the way, Allan relates the history of Half Man Half Biscuit, Doc reveals the shocking truth behind his academic record, Mark recalls a curious meeting in a Kentish pub, and we reveal the truth about “Zulu”.

    “Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,

    Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone,

    Put crepe bows round the white necks of the public doves,

    Let PC McGarry wear black cotton gloves.”

    The Whoseum is in deepest mourning this week for the loss of that titan of our childhood, Brian Cant. Nevertheless, Series 10 continue apace and reviews of “Empress of Mars” and “The Eaters of Light” are called for.

    Along the way, Allan relates the history of Half Man Half Biscuit, Doc reveals the shocking truth behind his academic record, Mark recalls a curious meeting in a Kentish pub, and we reveal the truth about “Zulu”.

    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.

    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 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 double-podcast 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.

    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.

    As Hayden delivers the Christmas presents and drinks to the Whoseum, an accident throws our podcasters through Space-Time onto Satellite 5 which is still broadcasting old gameshows to Earth. They must negotiate their way through numerous gameshow studios in order to find their way home in time for the traditional Christmas Blockbusters Gold Run.

    Is Brucie a Skarosian agent under the control of his Dalek dolly dealers? Can the boys find the route out of The Crystal Maze? Will they win through to the Head-to-Head round of a Blankety Blank hosted by Terrance Dicks? Will they return to 2016 in time for the gala release of the Diddly Dum charity single? Listen in to find out.

    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.

    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.

    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.
