  2. Terrible Lizards: S01E01 Tyrannosaurus

    For our first ever episode of Terrible Lizards we start, perhaps inevitably, with the most famous and iconic dinosaur ever – Tyrannosaurus. (Actually I wanted to do Nqwebasaurus but Iszi wouldn’t let me). The king is an absolute cultural icon and appears in pretty much every dinosaur movie and documentary of the last 50 years. As science progresses though, that mostly means that the public perception of this animal has got more and more out of tune with our modern understanding. So in this episode we talk about their giant heads and weird teeth, famously small arms, super-senses and tackle the vexed question of were they predators or scavengers? We round off with the issues of the mystery dwarf tyrannosaur Nanotyrannus and whether it is, or isn’t just a juvenile rex. Then the brilliant natural history broadcaster Chris Packham joins us to share his love of Tyrannosaurus and to ask Dave what he thinks a Tyrannosaurus would look like in real life.

  7. Fire, Burn by John Dickson Carr

    An historical mystery novel about a police officer who is transported back in time to 1829 when the British police was first formed. Carr considered this one of his best impossible crime novels.

    This is the story of an impossible crime, affecting a woman; and of an impossible situation, affecting a man.

  8. Peepolykus’ “The Hound Of The Baskervilles”

    A comic adaptation of the Sherlock Holmes classic. The story is all there and follows the plot, but includes a Spanish Holmes, a Baskerville who cannot do a Canadian accent, a particularly stupid Dr Watson who frets if not fed, "lamb in a bag" and a few other adaptations, which put a comic spin on this classic tale.
