Meet The Team
Hello, and welcome to the archived website for Cadmium2, the podcast all about Cult British TV, Film and Audio. If you never heard the podcast, then you won’t know that we were gainfully attempting to cover not only every Doctor Who TV episode ever made, in order, but the masses of other cult shows and films created in the UK since 1938, when the BBC broadcast the first ever piece of televised science fiction in the world; R.U.R.
The three of us knew each other for over twenty years and all shared a love of Doctor Who that bordered on the illegal. And scary. As such we were highly opinionated, argumentative, precious and loud.
Paul was born in 1973. Transparently of superior stock he barely tolerates the presence of his patently inferior co-hosts. He went to the same school as Matt Smith (the Eleventh Doctor) unfortunately many, many years earlier, which has had the side effect of making him more jealous and bitterly resentful of young people than the Conservative Party. Hard to believe eh?
Andrew was born in 1972. No-one is quite sure whose bright idea that was but apparently it has something to do with a tandem bicycle, a three week old Dairylea triangle and the removal of British Military bases in Malta in December 1971. He is extremely good at fiddling with knobs. And working the mixing board. His smiling face hides a deeper and more perverted sinister menace.
The details of Mike’s birth are, for good reason, shrouded in secrecy. Rumours abound that he was part of a secret Government project attempting to grow humans in petri dishes in a disused car park at the back of an old Wimpy in Penge, but that something went wrong during the hatching and he escaped. This theory can be backed up by the mood swings, bizarre facial ticks and his habit of putting wigs on lizards on the 13th of April every year.
