    You might be interested in this episode of BBC4 Radio’s Great Lives broadcast. Would love to see Catz’s movie where she plays Derbyshire.

  2. Loved the scarf knitting talk during the Happy Things…I decided about a month ago that it was finally time for me to knit a Scarf. But, I have no particular ties to or affinity for the 4th Doctor (I started watching during the 10/Donna season, and I haven’t yet gotten to Tom Baker’s episodes on Brit Box) So, I decided to put my own twist on things! I am following the pattern (mainly just color order and number of rows for each stripe) put out by BBC Enterprises in the 80’s (I think?), but I have changed the colors to ones inspired by the 13th Doctor’s costume. I am so pleased with the result so far, and can’t wait to see how it turns out! Anyway, thought I’d share with folks who would get it 🙂 Thanks for a great podcast always.

  4. Thank you so much for cleverly diverting me onto that side-trip into Gamma World! I was starting to worry that I was rapidly catching up with real-time “Verity!”, but that’s put me a whole week of listening further behind. =;o}

    Also, I now seem to have a toy dump-truck in my clampy-hand… [SCRATCHES HEAD WITH NON-CLAMPY HAND. THE SOUND THIS MAKES IS ODDLY METALLIC] … =:oo

  5. I adore Robots of Death, =:o} My friend Miki would rave about the visuals; I quite liked those but I especially enjoyed the dialogue and the soundscape on this one. Every time I watch or listen to it, I find myself wanting to go straight on to the first episode of a certain other show. When RoD first aired, I didn’t have any blank cassettes so I skipped recording that story. The following Christmas it was repeated as a two part special, so I got to record it *then*… And straight after the end, there was a trailer for this intriguing new orime time SF TV series called “Blake’s Seven”…

    I had to start begging my parents for more pocket money. Now I had *two* shows I wanted to record every episode of! =:o}

    Jess Jurkovic has done a fine job of transcribing Dudley Simpson’s music for the Sandminer for piano, here:

    The sound effect for the sandminer churning its way across the landscape was released on the BBC album “Doctor Who Sound Effects” (which my sister got me for my birthday the following year)… but not, alas, the delightful “BLOOP-blup-blup-BLOOP-blup!” noise for opening doors! =:o1
