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?

About the Podcast

Two Geeks Two Beers
Nerdy obsessions. Drunken ramblings. A nostalgia podcast about TV, film and video games.
Tom and Morgan are two mates who love talking nonsense about pop culture, while also enjoying a beer. We've taken our drunken ramblings from the pub to the studio to teach each other about all kinds of films, TV shows, video games and more. From '80s cartoons to '90s kids shows, action film franchises to cult games, we'll chat about anything remotely geek-related, often with plenty of confusion, bickering and fond nostalgia.
