    It\xe2\x80\x99s the podcast\xe2\x80\x99s 4th birthday and the Five Faces of Delusion are reviewing \xe2\x80\x9cTwice Upon a Time\xe2\x80\x9d. Along the way, we find a connection between \xe2\x80\x9cBox of Delights\xe2\x80\x9d and early breathalyser tests, we howl for The North, and we look at the pros and cons of having superfans as showrunners and writers.

    SHOWNOTES

    \n

    (00:05:21) ECANOTMA is short for \xe2\x80\x9cEverything\xe2\x80\x99s Connected And None Of This Means Anything\xe2\x80\x9d, a book written by former Diddly Dum host Al No.

    \n

    (00:06:07) A picture of the UNIT badge Mark gave Polly for Christmas can be found on our Tumblr page here.

    \n

    (00:06:49) A picture of Hayden\xe2\x80\x99s TARDIS cabinet can be found on our Tumblr page here.

    \n

    (00:13:58) Tony Slattery is an English actor and comedian.

    \n

    (00:18:36) \xe2\x80\x9cThe Night Walkers\xe2\x80\x9d was a story published in TV Comic featuring the Second Doctor. It is considered to be the conclusion of Season 6B. Published in three parts from 8-22 November 1969, it is the last TV Comic story to feature the Second Doctor and the very last adventure of this incarnation, loosely serving as a direct prequel to Spearhead from Space. It is also the only story to feature and properly show the Second Doctor\xe2\x80\x99s regeneration, given that his last regular TV appearance didn\xe2\x80\x99t show him regenerating, and also uniquely the only time the Doctor has regenerated in a comic story as opposed to an onscreen episode.

    \n

    (00:58:54) The larger British supermarket chains and department store chains have become famous in recent years for spending millions on arty TV commercials over Christmas. In 2014, Sainsbury\xe2\x80\x99s supermarket gave us one based on the 1914 Christmas truce.

    \n

    (01:00:25) This clip comes from the final episode of \xe2\x80\x9cBlackadder Goes Forth\xe2\x80\x9d.

    \n

    (01:27:52) Hayden\xe2\x80\x99s book \xe2\x80\x9cA Child Out Of Time\xe2\x80\x9d continues to do well.

    \n

    (01:47:56) This clip of Jim Broadbent and Victoria Wood comes from her TV play \xe2\x80\x9cStaying In\xe2\x80\x9d.

    (00:08:34) On 9 Dec 2017 on BBC2, the BBC broadcast \xe2\x80\x9cJohn Noakes: TV Hero\xe2\x80\x9d as a tribute to the late icon of so many British childhoods.

    \n

    (00:08:50) \xe2\x80\x9cBlue Peter at 50\xe2\x80\x9d narrated by Tom Baker and originally broadcast by the BBC on 11 Oct 2008.

    \n

    (00:09:25) \xe2\x80\x9cOxide Ghosts: The Brass Eye Tapes\xe2\x80\x9d is a film designed solely for live screenings and is made up almost entirely of never before seen footage edited together from hundreds of hours of unseen material from director Michael Cumming\'s personal archive.

    \n

    (00:11:07) English musician Neil Innes sued the band Oasis claiming their song \xe2\x80\x9cWhatever\xe2\x80\x9d borrowed portions of his song \xe2\x80\x9cHow Sweet to Be an Idiot\xe2\x80\x9d. Innes and Oasis settled a plagiarism lawsuit and Innes received songwriting credit.

    \n

    (00:13:10) Keith Chegwin (17 January 1957 - 11 December 2017) was an English television presenter and actor, appearing in several children\xe2\x80\x99s entertainment shows in the 1970s and 1980s, including \xe2\x80\x9cMulti-Coloured Swap Shop\xe2\x80\x9d and \xe2\x80\x9cCheggers Plays Pop\xe2\x80\x9d.

    \n

    (00:17:24) Mark received a Fourth Doctor Funko Pop from his Secret Santa, a photo of which can be found on our Tumblr page here.

    \n

    (00:17:59) Doc received from his Secret Santa the DVD box-set of the BBC\xe2\x80\x99s late-1980s \xe2\x80\x9cChronicles of Narnia\xe2\x80\x9d adaptation, a photo of which can be found on our Tumblr page here.

    \n

    (00:19:54) Hayden received from his Secret Santa a mug displaying Sid Barrett\xe2\x80\x99s Fender Esquire, a photo of which can be found on our Tumblr page here.

    \n

    (00:21:45) Allan received from his Secret Santa the Podcaster Options boxed play set of the \xe2\x80\x9cAllan & Erica Return From Cardiff\xe2\x80\x9d story, a photo of which can be found on our Tumblr page here. This refers to March 2017 when Allan and his missus Erica visited the Doctor Who set in Cardiff at Matt Lucas\xe2\x80\x99s. As they prepared to return home, they spied a golden Ice Warrior prop (from \xe2\x80\x9cEmpress of Mars\xe2\x80\x9d) in a skip. Only the lack of a roof-rack prevented them from taking it back to The Wirral with them. The whole story can be heard on our podcast #73 here (around 4 mins in).

    \n

    (00:24:34) \xe2\x80\x9cThe Box of Delights\xe2\x80\x9d is a BBC Television adaptation of John Masefield\xe2\x80\x99s children\xe2\x80\x99s fantasy novel starring Patrick Troughton and Robert Stephens. It was broadcast on BBC One between 21 November and 24 December 1984.

    \n

    (00:25:30) Judge for yourselves whether Doc is right in thinking that Glyn Baker (the actor who played Herne the Hunter in \xe2\x80\x9cThe Box of Delights\xe2\x80\x9d) bears a resemblance to Doctor Who Visual Effects Designer Mat Irvine.

    \n

    (00:30:20) Mark received as an extra pressie from his fellow podcasters a Galen Doll from the \xe2\x80\x9cPlanet of the Apes\xe2\x80\x9d TV series. This was to replace the one he accidentally destroyed during over-enthusiastic boyhood play. A photo of it can be found here.

    \n

    (00:37:00) \xe2\x80\x9cPlay Your Kaleds Right\xe2\x80\x9d is, of course, based on \xe2\x80\x9cPlay Your Cards Right\xe2\x80\x9d, a British TV game show broadcast on ITV from 1980 to 1987 and hosted by Bruce Forsyth.

    \n

    This week, we take a look at Earthshock (the Season 19, Fifth Doctor story from 1982) and we lift the lid on the long-concealed scandal of overenthusiastic sentry-extras in Doctor Who.

    \n

    Along the way, we take a good look at coarse acrostics, David Banks\xe2\x80\x99s career as a soap star and Beryl Reid\xe2\x80\x99s lookalike. And, if any of you think that a school bully breaking one of his toys in Hayden\xe2\x80\x99s book was the most heartbreaking thing you\xe2\x80\x99ve ever heard about, then our swerve down the side road of the Planet of the Apes TV Series from 1974 and how it inspired a young Mark\xe2\x80\x99s imagination may well leave you in tears.

    \n

    (00:40:17) L!VE TV was a British television station that was operated by Mirror Group Newspapers on cable television from 12 June 1995 until 5 November 1999. It was later revived for Sky from 2003. In 2006, the new L!VE TV\xe2\x80\x99s name was changed to Babeworld to reflect the channel\xe2\x80\x99s gradual change of focus towards \xe2\x80\x9cadult material\xe2\x80\x9d.

    \n

    (00:40:35) L!VE TV\xe2\x80\x99s content included \xe2\x80\x9cCanary Wharf\xe2\x80\x9d, a soap opera, which used the station\xe2\x80\x99s offices in the Docklands as a set and starred none other than the Cyberleader himself David Banks. David\xe2\x80\x99s climactic scene starts 03:10 into this clip.

    \n

    (00:44:10) \xe2\x80\x9cPlanet of the Apes\xe2\x80\x9d is an American science fiction television series that aired on CBS in 1974. The series stars Roddy McDowall, Ron Harper, James Naughton, Mark Lenard and Booth Colman. It is based on the 1968 Planet of the Apes film and its sequels, which were inspired by the novel Planet of the Apes by Pierre Boulle. The series starred Roddy McDowall as Galen, a young chimpanzee that is sent by Zaius with Urko to ensure the safety of two humans that have survived a crash landing on Earth. McDowall previously played Cornelius and Caesar throughout the various film versions. Mark\xe2\x80\x99s Galen doll, now sadly lost to a tragically heroic death by a laser defence system, can be seen here.

    \n

    (01:01:00) The \xe2\x80\x9ccold open\xe2\x80\x9d song from Craig Ferguson\xe2\x80\x99s show can be found here.

    \n

    (01:11:48) Hylda Baker (4 February 1905 - 1 May 1986) was an English comedian, actress and music hall performer. Born and brought up in Farnworth, Lancashire, she is perhaps most well known for her role as Nellie Pledge in the ITV sitcom Nearest and Dearest (1968-73) and for her role in the 1960 film Saturday Night and Sunday Morning.

    \n

    (01:12:08) British comedians Arthur Mullard and Hylda Baker released a version of the \xe2\x80\x9cYou\xe2\x80\x99re the One That I Want\xe2\x80\x9d in 1978 which reached Number 22 in the UK charts.

    \n

    (01:12:49) \xe2\x80\x9cNot On Your Nellie\xe2\x80\x9d is a British sitcom that ran from 1974 until 1975. It starred veteran actress Hylda Baker as Nellie Pickersgill, a Bolton woman who moves to London to help run her ailing father\xe2\x80\x99s Chelsea pub. Seventeen episodes of the series were produced by London Weekend Television for the ITV network.

    (00:01:42) \xe2\x80\x9cChild Out of Time\xe2\x80\x9d is our own Hayden\xe2\x80\x99s long-awaited book telling the story of how, having been born in the year Doctor Who was cancelled, he still managed to grow up loving Doctor Who during its Wilderness Years. Copies are hoped to be in the shops by Christmas. Until then, paperbacks can be purchased on Amazon (here) as can Kindle editions (here). Hayden\xe2\x80\x99s own website (here) and his Facebook author page (here) give more details.

    \n

    (00:03:20) \xe2\x80\x9cThe Six Ages of Podcasting\xe2\x80\x9d \xe2\x80\x93 Hayden is here referring to episode 5 of the Diddly Dum Podcast back in February 2014 (actually titled \xe2\x80\x9cThe Six Ages of Fan\xe2\x80\x9d) in the days when Hayden was a mere listener to the podcast and hadn\xe2\x80\x99t yet morphed into a mover and a shaker. In the episode, we discussed how the life of the fan changes as we grow older. The episode was also noted for the gorgeous art which The Rev (@skaromedia https://skaromedia.deviantart.com/) drew and painted to accompany it which can be found on our Tumblr page (here).

    \n

    (00:03:32) \xe2\x80\x9cChild Out of Time\xe2\x80\x9d was an article which Hayden wrote for the DWAS magazine Celestial Toyroom around 2010 and a copy can be found on Hayden\xe2\x80\x99s old blog (here).

    \n

    (00:09:21) Clayton Hickman\xe2\x80\x99s designs for Redbubble (as plugged by our own Mark) can be found here. One of the T-shirts of Clayton\xe2\x80\x99s designs can be seen modelled here by our own Mark.

    \n

    (00:19:30) Nathan Barley is a Channel 4 television sitcom written by Charlie Brooker and Chris Morris. The series of six weekly episodes began broadcasting on 11 February 2005. Described by his creator as a \xe2\x80\x9cmeaningless strutting cadaver-in-waiting\xe2\x80\x9d, the character originated on Brooker\xe2\x80\x99s TVGoHome - a website parodying television listings - as the focus of a fly-on-the-wall documentary.

    \n

    (00:44:42) \xe2\x80\x9cPlay for Today\xe2\x80\x9d is a British television anthology drama series, produced by the BBC and transmitted on BBC1 from 1970 to 1984. During the run, more than three hundred programmes, featuring original television plays, and adaptations of stage plays and novels, were transmitted.

    In the final week before Season 10 of Doctor Who begins, we take a look the various cult books which have been arriving at The Whoseum for our delectation. This leads to much wistful sighing over memories over comics from the 1970s, especially 2000AD. We also look at some promising hints about Pearl Mackie\xe2\x80\x99s companion character.

    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\xe2\x80\x99ll 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 \xe2\x80\x9cThe Highlanders\xe2\x80\x9d and \xe2\x80\x9cTomb of the Cybermen\xe2\x80\x9d.

    \n

    Along the way, Hayden\xe2\x80\x99s 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 \xe2\x80\x93 Hayden and all Doc\xe2\x80\x99s notes for his Whoseum segment. As a result, only Mark and Allan have exhibits to present \xe2\x80\x93 a wheelbarrow full of charred fragments of blue wood (which looks surprisingly like the debris of a TARDIS) and a broken link.

    \n

    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 \xe2\x80\x93 Invasion Earth: 2150 AD (1966), and we examine the link between Shakespeare\xe2\x80\x99s punk phase and Vincent Price\xe2\x80\x99s horror films.

    This week, The Five Faces of Delusion take a look at two stories from Jon Pertwee\xe2\x80\x99s final season. With \xe2\x80\x9cInvasion of the Dinosaurs\xe2\x80\x9d we show how, if you look beyond the ropey models and the heavy \xe2\x80\x9cEastenders\xe2\x80\x9d influences, this story is essentially Malcolm Hulke doing to the Communist Party of Great Britain what Robert Holmes did to the Inland Revenue with \xe2\x80\x9cThe Sun Makers\xe2\x80\x9d. With \xe2\x80\x9cPlanet of the Spiders\xe2\x80\x9d we draw a direct line from this story to the twin literary masterpieces \xe2\x80\x9cFlowers for Algernon\xe2\x80\x9d and \xe2\x80\x9cMrs Frisby and the Rats of NIMH\xe2\x80\x9d.

    \n

    Along the way, we look at how Rick James was knocked off the top spot he\xe2\x80\x99d occupied since \xe2\x80\x9cThe Mutants\xe2\x80\x9d. We question whether one\xe2\x80\x99s attitude to the Third Doctor\xe2\x80\x99s 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\xe2\x80\x99s political career.

    \n

    Mark\xe2\x80\x99s daughter, Polly, was so inspired by \xe2\x80\x9cInvasion of the Dinosaurs\xe2\x80\x9d 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 \xe2\x80\x9cThe Return of Doctor Mysterio\xe2\x80\x9d, 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.

    \n

    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.

    \n

    Along the way, we discover Peter Cushing\xe2\x80\x99s 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.

Mark visits Dungeness Power Station (a.k.a. The Nuton Power Complex from \xe2\x80\x9cClaws of Axos\xe2\x80\x9d) before coming face to face with dinosaurs which never existed. Doc and Hayden attend the premier of the animated \xe2\x80\x9cPower of the Daleks\xe2\x80\x9d at the British Film Institute and hide from a roomful of uber-fans while the celebrities hide in the green room.

    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.

    \n

    Along the way, we look at the philosophical chasm between PS4.99 and PS5.00, we translate the Duke of Forgill\xe2\x80\x99s family motto, we compare \xe2\x80\x9cDr Who Meets Scratchman\xe2\x80\x9d to \xe2\x80\x9cThe Boy Who Kicked Pigs\xe2\x80\x9d 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 \xe2\x80\x93 friends of the show (now merely \xe2\x80\x9cof the show\xe2\x80\x9d) 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.

    \n

    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\xe2\x80\x99s 7), Hayden recalls his seminal \xe2\x80\x9cGallifrey Galaxy Globetrotters\xe2\x80\x9d work for Celestial Toyroom and Doc asks why, if monkeys are so smart, they\xe2\x80\x99ve never produced anything like Northern Soul.

    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.

    \n

    We take a look at Rob\xe2\x80\x99s 25mm miniatures, his appearance on a TV quiz cosplaying the Fifth Doctor and the \xe2\x80\x9cA Celebration\xe2\x80\x9d book by Peter Haining.

    \n

    Along the way, the conversation veers off down the side-roads of Alfred Hitchcock\xe2\x80\x99s 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.

    clipping 10This week\xe2\x80\x99s 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.

    \n

    Mark brings along The Special Edition DVD of \xe2\x80\x9cInferno\xe2\x80\x9d 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\xe2\x80\x99s exhibit is the page of the Radio Times covering Saturday 26 February 1972. On that evening, episode one of The \xe2\x80\x9cSea Devils\xe2\x80\x9d 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?

    \n

    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.

    Armour picsThis week, we have only three Faces of Delusion as, in Matt\xe2\x80\x99s absence, Doc and Hayden attempt a two-hander podcast.

    \n

    We start with Hayden reminiscing about his weekend at \xe2\x80\x9cThe Capitol\xe2\x80\x9d \xe2\x80\x93 the Doctor Who Appreciation Society\xe2\x80\x99s 40th anniversary event. If you\xe2\x80\x99ve ever felt envious of his seeming ability to fall on his feet in any fan situation, then you\xe2\x80\x99ve not heard anything yet as his jamminess soars to new heights.

    \n

    Then, inspired by last time\xe2\x80\x99s discussion of the \xe2\x80\x9cGenesis of the Daleks\xe2\x80\x9d LP, we try out the audio-only soundtracks of three Doctor Who stories which we\xe2\x80\x99ve previously only ever watched. Would they work as LPs?

    (00:44:40) Phil has presented for exhibition in The Whoseum two Airfix Doctor Who model kits, \xe2\x80\x9cWelcome Aboard\xe2\x80\x9d and \xe2\x80\x9cDalek Encounter\xe2\x80\x9d.

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 \xe2\x80\x98Yujees\xe2\x80\x99) whom they keep as slaves.

    \n

    (01:35:35) Doc has presented for exhibition in The Whoseum the \xe2\x80\x9cGenesis of the Daleks\xe2\x80\x9d soundtrack LP (1978).
