DTD201 Deal or No Deal

August 18, 2017

You probably know all about this show. Just call me an idiot while I waffle on about what this skill entails. Grandmothers. Eggs. Gums.


DTD200 Fitbit

DTD199 Spider-Man

August 16, 2017

You can catch this skill, like a theif in a web, simply by downloading it and pressing Play. If your Spidey-sense is tingling and you detect yet another contrived description to today's skill then give yourself a pat on your big, hairy cephalothorax (I feel a bit queezy now - I wish I hadn't written that...) Oh, and by the way we have a special guest for tomorrow's episode.


DTD198 Adventure on the Train

August 15, 2017

You're on a train, hurtling towards London when you wake from a dose and suddenly find yourself deputised by a detective. Tickety-tum, tickety-tum, tickety-tum. I'm putting in these sound effects as this skill is sadly lacking in that department - but otherwise it's on the right track...


DTD197 Star Wars History and HAL 9000

August 14, 2017

Today's first skill covers what happened that is in any way Star Wars-related on a given date going back over the lifetime of this global sci-fi phenomenon, followed by that classic line issued by HAL 9000 in that other legendary space movie (y'know the one with the apes, the black monolith and the baby). 


DTD196 Memory Pop

August 13, 2017

Do you like words? Do you also like trying to remember things? If the answer is 'Yes' to both of these then this skill is for you. Actually, I should probably also add the condition that you like playing games on your Echo too...


DTD195 Television Black Adder

August 12, 2017

Blaaaaack Adder, Blaaaack Adder (sing along)... Another groovy addition to the series of skills that bring classic TV shows to the Echo. You may know him best as Mr Bean, but before being Bean he was a Mr B of a very different kind.


DTD194 World Detective

August 11, 2017

Can you track down your clients' elusive acquaintances? You've only got a few slim clues about the country they've chosen to flee to, and two strikes before you're out of luck.


DTD193 Lyrics Idol

August 10, 2017

From the Orient to the Occident there is no better Echo skill that happens to be called Lyrics Idol than this one - and I think to myself, what a wonderfl "Beep".. 


DTD192 London Slang

August 9, 2017

Hey fam, dis skill ain't dry - it's bare safe blood.
