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.
Joining Tim this time is actor and comedian Toby Hadoke, who’s looking for clues to the who, the what and the when of Hey Matthew by Karel Fialka, late-night alternative comedy show Who Dares Wins, Channel 4 sci-fi pilot starring John Taylor from Duran Duran Timeslip, Spanish horror short La Cabina, Cadbury’s Cabana, Kit Williams’ puzzle book Masquerade and the brief primetime career of comedian Paul Squire. Along the way we’ll be thrilling to the escapades of B.E. Baracus, watching a Gold Blend Video Nasty, debating the Cabana-related exceptions in the libel laws and taking part in the grand launch of Find The Bin With A ‘5’ Written On It.
Toby Hadoke is an actor and comedian; you can find his website here and his podcast series Toby Hadoke’s Time Travels here. There’s more about Toby’s comedy club XS Malarkey here and you can follow him on Twitter at @TobyHadoke.

Alternately, if you’re just feeling generous, you can buy me a coffee here. There’s probably some reason why ‘Matthew’ wouldn’t be allowed one, though.
