Don’t have nightmares

leave a comment »

The Nightmare Man was a four part BBC sf/horror drama about some… thing slaughtering the inhabitants of a remote Scottish island.

It was broadcast just once in the early 80s, terrorising a generation and did not appear again until a DVD release many years later. In its absence it had become a bit of a mini-legend, helped by the fact it was directed by Douglas Camfield and adapted by Robert Holmes (from the novel Child of Vodyanoi by David Wiltshire), both Doctor Who stalwarts. Naturally you can now watch the whole thing on the internet… if you dare!

A day that involves a lot of hugging, apparently… also here’s a comic strip explaining the Cars universe.

Happy 4th July…

This was the only reference we Brits had when I grew up:

We’ve erected an ugly statue of Ronnie Raygun in London for all you Americans. I hope you’re suitably grateful

They should have just put up a screen showing these…
