  1. Mark H Wilkinson says:

    Fake Keith sounds a bit like Sandi Toksvig.

    Sandi Toksvig is Danish.

    From this it can be deduced that Fake Keith is Danish.

    Be careful. There’s a possibility she holds a grudge over Ulfcytel Snillingr and the East Anglians.

    (Or more alarmingly, there’s a danger she’ll burst into “Wonderful Copenhagen” while you’re not looking.)

  2. Cheers for the plug. Always a pleasure to listen. THE Colin Baker would be proud.

    great show. looking forward to hearing the end of season review. If you want… Ill do the Staggering Teams WHOstrology! email me your birthdates…

  3. Bees are small yellow and black sociable members of the vespiform subspecies. Hailing originally from the planet majoria and migrating to the planet Fintlewoodlewix over 7 million ago.

    Mistaken by the local inhabitants as nothing more than poorly armed Insects, with an innate ability to dance, they were largely ignored until it was discovered that they vomit was surprisingly palatable to most native species.

    Bee’s attempts to communicate or implant their portable translation devices into the native species were usually mistaken as attempts to sting humans.

    This miss interpretation of events never distracted the Bees trying to make first contact despite a surprisingly high death count on the side of the Bees.

    However. The Bees left the renamed planet – now called Earth – Galactic codex Sol 3 – shortly before its removal too the Medusa Cascade.

    The last message from the bees was miss translated by a kindly Bee Keeper who assumed the Bee was communicating the location of a bowl of petunias to its fellow drones.

    The message was infact.

    So long and thanks for all the nectar.

  4. Bees, don’t talk to me about bees! Excellent stuff! It is remarkable the similarities between bees and dolphins, at least in DNA’s and RTD’s crazed minds.

    As for our biodata for yet another great idea from the home of the Tin Dog – you should already have mine from a previous reply on your site. I’ll try to persuade the others (I suspect Fake Keith won’t be too keen on the idea though!!)

  5. Beware: stack popping in operation!

    Hi Mark! I’m not so sure about the Sandi Toksvig thing myself but then I’ve known Fake Keith for fast approaching 20 years (and never met THE Sandi Toksvig!) You could be right, though. I’ll be sure to keep the microphones on a bit longer than usual next podcast recording – if we catch her singing “Wonderful Copenhagen” we’ll know you are correct!

    As for Ulfcytel Snillingr ( – wow, some real history too! What an incredible feed back section this has become – Hitchhikian bees and now an eleventh century Anglo-Saxon nobleman! Certainly very easy to see how anyone can still be a bit sore over Ulfcytel Snillingr! I know I would be.
