Manage episode 280850228 series 1402484
Looks Unfamiliar is a podcast in which writer and occasional broadcaster Tim Worthington talks to a guest about some of the things that they remember that nobody else ever seems to.
This time it's an all-star festive lineup of entertainment as Tim is joined by a series of guests to talk about television Christmas Specials that seem to have slipped under the radar despite featuring very big names or coming from very popular shows, featuring Darrell Maclaine on Rutland Weekend Television, Phil Catterall on Community, Ben Baker on Bernard And The Genie, Garreth Hirons on Futurama, Tim Worthington on Doctor Who, Emma Burnell on The West Wing and Paul Abbott on The Peter Serafinowicz Show. As well as revisiting some of the lesser-seen small-screen yuletide offerings of years gone by, we'll also be discussing how to tackle an Out Of Control Eric Idle, what happens if someone drops We Didn't Start The Fire on the floor and smashes it, being legally forced to refer to Trevor McDonald as 'Indeterminate Newscaster', assessing how to qualify as one of Internet's Leading Simpsonsmen, lamenting Russell T. Davies' slapdash adherence to Thames Riverbed Continuity, considering whether President Bartlet should have hired The Goodies, and working out how many times it's possible to say the word 'impression' in one sentence.
