Episode 118: Bitter and Painful

It’s 1950s night at Flight Through Entirety, which means putting on bobby socks, combing Brylcreem through our remaining hair (if any), and leaving our copies of The Doctor Who Monster Book at home. It’s Delta and the Bannermen.
Er, just remind me. What day is it again?

Notes and links
Well, the ur-source of this story is the long-running 1980s sitcom Hi-de-Hi!, set in a 1950s holiday camp, starring Ruth Madoc, former wife of our very own Philip Madoc (in fishnets).
The Tollmaster was played by Ken Dodd, who earned a place in The Guinness Book of Records for the longest joke-telling session ever — 1,500 jokes in three and a half hours.
