    At long last, here\xe2\x80\x99s our 100th podcast. Quite a landmark for us so we\xe2\x80\x99ve chosen to make it a nostalgic one, looking back over our last nearly five years. We\xe2\x80\x99ve put together a montage of clips of our least worst bits and we\xe2\x80\x99ve been very self-indulgent. Which makes it a rather long podcast, even for us. That\xe2\x80\x99s why we\xe2\x80\x99ve split it into 2 halves \xe2\x80\x93 Episode 100a and Episode 100b \xe2\x80\x93 which you can download separately rather than trying to cope with one whacking great audio file.

    In the penultimate podcast before our 100th celebrations, Mark tells all about the Who at Hoylake convention where he stalked Matthew Waterhouse and was hailed by Richard Franklin as a campaigner against the ivory trade, Jurgen Klinsmann awakes from centuries of deep sleep (in the Tottenham attack) and, as we take a look at \xe2\x80\x9cThe Ark in Space\xe2\x80\x9d, we hear how the life cycle of the wasp traumatised Mark as a boy.

    (00:00:40) Lest anyone think that Mark\xe2\x80\x99s desire for a \xe2\x80\x9cninety-nine\xe2\x80\x9d was in some way obscene, a 99 Flake can refer to an ice cream cone with a Cadbury Flake inserted in it.

The article Hayden refers to can be found here at the Doctor Who News site.

    \n

    (00:08:45) Peter Firmin was the designer who co-created with Oliver Postgate the children\'s TV shows Ivor the Engine, Bagpuss, The Clangers and others.

His character was crushed to death by a cow as a horrified Joe Sugden (Frazer Hines) looked on, as discussed in Diddly Dum Podcast #70 (\xe2\x80\x9cSurfeit of Beef\xe2\x80\x9d).

    \n

    (00:10:07) It was on Diddly Dum Podcast episode 42 (Apprentice 2 A Pilot) that our former co-host Matt Charlton revealed that, so patently horrific was the first incarnation of Bungle from \xe2\x80\x9cRainbow\xe2\x80\x9d and so apt to become a repressed memory, that he and his friends referred to him as The War Bungle. The clip occurs about 1 hour 28 mins into the podcast which can be found here.

Born to human parents, an apparently normal child might at some point between childhood and late adolescence experience a process called \xe2\x80\x98breaking out\xe2\x80\x99 and develop special paranormal abilities. These abilities include psionic powers such as telepathy, telekinesis, and teleportation. However, their psychological make-up prevents them from intentionally killing others.

    Excitement abounds this week at The Whoseum as we reveal details of our partnership with the Doctor Who Appreciation Society\xe2\x80\x99s CAPITOL3 convention as their official podcaster.

    \n

    But eventually we get down to our tribute to the late Peter Miles by taking a look at the Season 7 (1970) story \xe2\x80\x93 The Silurians. Along the way, we look at Peter\xe2\x80\x99s work with Dusty Springfield, Jim Davidson latter career as a Liberace impersonator and the most bad-ass recurring villain of the Pertwee era (it\xe2\x80\x99s not what you may think).

    \n

    Plus we make a singular phone call to Hayden.

    (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

    (00:08:34) 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).

    (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

    (01:07:12) The longest standing tradition of the Diddly Dum Podcast is our Christmas Blockbusters Gold Run \xe2\x80\x93 a quiz on the previous year\xe2\x80\x99s podcast in the style of TV\xe2\x80\x99s \xe2\x80\x9cBlockbusters\xe2\x80\x9d.

    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.

    (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.

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.

Seventeen episodes of the series were produced by London Weekend Television for the ITV network.

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.
