Mark Gatiss did a history of horror movies which is well worth a watch.

Lo Pan...what a score!

I love it when at 2:51 he pulls "Ghost Stories" off the shelf, and I thought to myself..."I have that." Of course, not exactly. But something incredibly close.

Wondering if an edited portion of this video could be worked into a presentation?


What an excellent idea! If you pause the picture at those 2:50/2:51 frames you will see MORE GH*ST immediately to the right of that GH*ST that he is pulling off the shelf.

Such fun.

Shearsmith, Gatiss and Dyson are keepers of the flame of British TV Horror in my opinion. Thank the infernal forces for them.

Couldn't agree more, let's not forget the lovely Steve Pemberton.

Now I am prepared to be corrected on this, but I left Steve off the list simply because he doesn't seem quite the horror fan than the other three are. I have no direct evidence to support this, other than the fact that the other three have been involved in horror productions such as ghost story, the documentary above, readings of audio books by Aickman, ghost stories for Christmas, etc; whereas I don't recall Steve being involved in these types of projects, outside of the projects created by the four of them.

Maybe not as prolific as the other guys but he co-wrote "inside number 9, psychoville and was excellent in Whitechapple. He's on my great British list Smile

As of late last night, I am half the way through the ageing of MORE GH*ST. Fifty-two completed. Very happy with the way they are looking.

Sorry to interrupt. Carry on.

They're all doing well in general. Some excellent horror and drama. Mark Gatiss's episode for this series of Doctor Who is coming up which I think Reece is down to be in. Should be good.

Um, any more updates on Triptych? In all fairness, in the Dopps Forum you did say it was Teaser #1, which implies that further teasers might be in store... Smile

Seems a tad on the pushy side. He's obviously knee-deep in MG right now, as his previous post details.

Hmm, I can see how it might have seemed that way. But I meant it purely in a humorous and playful spirit, hence the smiley emoticon..! Smile

I would never be pushy about it; just trying to help the Prof a bit by keeping some buzz in the forefront.

How lucky we are to mark the seasons with these brilliant books.
Each a stand-alone symphony but the collection fits like beautiful ornate pipe organs that play so perfectly together.
I remain in awe of this offering.

15,568 hand-aged pages down. 13,066 pages to go. Will finish the next 1,668 pages over the next ten-to-twelve hours. Coming right along! Should have them all finished by next Saturday just in time to ship.

Then back to Triptych. I do have more Triptych photos and effects to post already. Saving those up until MG has had its time in the sun. Still have from 3-to-6 weeks work left on Triptych after I get back to it, but it is nearly completed (relatively speaking).

So on this eve of Hallowe'en, the old professor is happily immersed in the works of M. R. J@mes. My idea of heaven.

Happy Hallowe'en, guys. Make it safe. You know the routine; hold hands crossing streets, check your candy, keep those costumes away from open flames, &c.

Warmest,
BC
