Episode 99: The Box of Delights

The wolves are running…

For the 2021 Two Geeks Christmas special, Morgan is taking Tom back to 1984 for a look back at the cult BBC festive series The Box of Delights.

In the episode, we cover:

  • Were kids “cleverer” in 1984?
  • How Tarantino may have been inspired by the show (he wasn’t)
  • Why the cast was not handsome
  • Tom’s annoyance at the posh kids having “far too much power”
  • Possets
  • Nick Berry’s rat beginnings
  • Tom’s hardcore love for Winamp and Last.FM (there’s a reason for it)
  • Could this just be one big Derren Brown prank?
