Mary Tamm RIP

Very, very shocked to hear today of the passing of Mary Tamm. Its a bit churlish to say now, but i was planning on featuring her in my "Crushes" list. Seems silly and pointless now. Mary WAS Romana and it seems a lovely person as well. Feel sure, if she'd been given better scenes and more respect, she would've gone on to be one of the Doctor's most beloved and most respected companions - up there with Elizabeth Sladen.

My Bat-project

Can i point you in the direction of my Bat-Blog, where i've started a project of asking to come up with their take on THE American comic cover from my childhood - Batman 186.

Scaring the crap out of a Sprog - part 5

A TWO YEAR gap between posts?????? REAL sorry to anyone who's been popping back in that time looking for an update. Must say, i've got so many Blogs now that this one has moved over on to page 2 of the list of them - and i didn't know there was a page 2, so quite forgot all about this one. So i'm indebted to artist Staz Johnson, who's reminded me that it actually exists, and also gave me a good topic to come back with - public service films. Odd little mini-info slots, usually on just before the programme you've been sat there waiting for, often bizarre, often surreal, and many times quite horrifiying in a "they put this on in kids hour?????" kind of way. Just about the best example of "scare the crap out of the little buggers so they won't do it" was provided by Staz - and it still is creepy as heck isn't it?
