I get quoted in the names of two Diddly Dums in a row! Hahaha I am winning (Mark and I have a friendly rivalry that only exists in my head and Mark doesn’t know about). This fortnight’s podcast which I totally named with my brilliant naming skills can be found here at the Diddly Dum website or can be directly downloaded here.
The second Diddly Dum Podcast with reviews of the new series is up – we review Thin Ice and Knock Knock. Also we review The Capitol and discuss how amazing I was at it. Direct download here if you want it.
Doc, the guy who runs the podcast, and Mark, our colleague (pictured with Daphne Ashbrook, above right) , were at the Capitol this year. Doc informs me that when he saw me onstage he turned to Mark and whispered, “He’s being very…Allan.”
This weekend saw us down in Crawley for the second annual The Capitol convention with the Doctor Who Appreciation Society. I got to interview the wonderful Jon Culshaw live on stage! Hopefully a video is coming soon, if I can ever wrest it from the hands of Keith Barnstormer, videographer extraordinaire and hoarder of footages.
