One Footer in the Grave | Bouvier des Flandres

With one foot in the door of their retirement home for senior web designers, Paul Boag, Andy Clarke, Jon Hicks, and Marcus Lillington get together once a month to distract each other from everyday life and work.

The show’s funny and frivolous and the chaps have a genuinely unique chemistry and will entertain you if you work on the web and even if you don’t.

12: Roasted Chestnuts with the Dreamtime Electric Blanket

The intention was that this would be our Festive episode. Like the doddering old farts that we are, we get there eventually, but only once we've finished discussing:

  • Andy's new Dreamtime Electric Blanket, the sponsor of the show
  • The new Dr Who - What do think? Were they right to change Davros? (Jon also mistakenly pronounces 'Ncuti' as 'Chooty' rather than 'Shooty')
  • Andy's shock DNA test results means he's not who he thought he was.
  • Marcus's intense suffering at earning lots of money.
  • Jon's Festive Sandwich Reviews

Fact check footnote:

  • Jon mistakenly pronounces 'Ncuti' as 'Chooty' rather than 'Shooty')
  • It was Jo Grant (not Sarah Jane) that was in The Green Death, but it wasn't her first story (that was Terror of the Autons)
