'Allo 'Allo, what is going on here then? You'd have to be suffering from distronic toxaemia not to enjoy this episode of Doctor Who even though it's full of not very nice people doing not very nice things. Special guest David Quantick doesn't do anything nasty though, he casts his expert eye over proceedings to choose his favourite thing, but will host Toby Hadoke approve of his choice?

David Quantick's new quiz book comes out a few days after the release of this podcast, that is why this lauded comedy writer's contribution to Happy Times and Places has been released so close to him recording it. Will he and your host Toby Hadoke like the same things ...? And more to the point, what will they choose? What's not to love about one of Doctor Who's most highly regarded stories?

A last minute juggle of the release schedule as this edition's special guest - hugely respected comedy writer David Quantick - has something coming out that he wants to plug, a book that'll hit the shops in early November 2021. So to sing for his supper he is crooning a ditty of praise for one of Doctor Who's most highly lauded and repeated stories, Genesis of the Daleks. David saw it first time around, whereas host Toby Hadoke knows it so well in edited, audio form thanks to having it on cassette.So will their different perspectives happen upon the same favourite thing? Grab the Time Ring and see...

Happy Times and Places Omnibus - The Tribe of Gum

Happy Times and Places Omnibus - The Tribe of Gum

October 22, 2021

We're not committing ourselves to this as a title - but you know what we mean. It's the cavemen episodes bereft of their history making opening instalment that have been chosen by monster maker Jim Sangster and he and your host Toby Hadoke find a lot of similarities about their favourite things presented by these oft neglected instalments. Orb be praised.

Too Much Information 2.2 - The Survivors

Too Much Information 2.2 - The Survivors

October 18, 2021

OK, so The Daleks started last time, but the Daleks start this time - and they had quite a lot of development, both vocally and physically, to get them to the shapes and sounds we know and love. And yet they arrived pretty much as we have them today. This is the last episode to be recorded before Doctor Who itself was aired and it was made in the immediate aftermath of a world shattering event. Oh it was quite a busy week - and The Survivors have quite a tale to tell...

Happy Times and Places Omnibus - The Time Warrior

Happy Times and Places Omnibus - The Time Warrior

October 15, 2021

Special guest Tom Salinsky and your host Toby Hadoke hide away from their families over the Christmas and new year period in order to watch Jon Pertwee stalking a potato headed alien whilst Dot Cotton lives in a castle with Boba Fett. It's also your host's birth story so holds a special place in his heart - but does that mean he and his guest will be on the same wavelength? Time (Warrior) will tell...  

Happy Times and Places 24.1 - Dalek

Happy Times and Places 24.1 - Dalek

October 11, 2021

The special guest this time around is that delightful writer and comedian Iszi Lawrence. She has chosen a rare (for this podcast) New Who episode: the headline grabbing Dalek. And with Russell T Davies love rightly in the air it's worth reminding ourselves of the show's heady first year back. Will it retain its power after all these years and crucially, will Toby and Iszi agree on the same things when it comes to their appreciation of this undoubted classic...

 

Happy Times and Places Omnibus - Time and the Rani

Happy Times and Places Omnibus - Time and the Rani

October 8, 2021

A hurried release when put out as single instalments but for a good cause as guest Antoni Fletcher-Goldsmith has had a very serious health diagnosis which required a bit of support. And yet it hasn't diminished his glittery approach to life and what is more glittery than Time and the Rani? It's a tricky one for your host as it's not a favourite of his - the very opposite - but this podcast is all about celebrating Doctor Who even when it's not to your taste...

Indefinable Magic 1.10 - Credit Where Credits Are Due

October 4, 2021

These Indefinable Magic podcasts just keep getting longer (unlike the credits on TV programmes, which are getting shorter and faster). Ah well. This one is about Toby Hadoke's hill, and it's one that he'll die on. Some fans care about this stuff, and some couldn't give two hoots but tough - here is Toby Hadoke Party Political Broadcast for the Readable Credits Party. From casts in order of appearance, to special guest star billing, here is everything you need to know about who goes where on that list of names that disappears ever quicker these days...

Happy Times and Places 23.4 - Nightmare of Eden 4

October 1, 2021

Your host TobY Hadoke was on such a roll with the first three parts that when he gets to part four, on a different day, his mojo seems to have got lost in the void. Maybe he needs to take drugs in order to enjoy EVERY episode of Doctor Who, or maybe he just needs to exercise a bit of self discipline... or maybe he just needs to "go away"... Fortunately, Star Trek fanfic writer Derek O'Brien is on hand to provide some positive analysis from a perspective honed across the Pond. So maybe this will end on a high!
