I don't watch much science fiction though did like Sarah Connor the Terminator chronicles and the Invasion series also terminated early.

Currently enjoying Silent Witness on Drama and once again the X-Files on Paramount.

'Lethal White', the latest in the adaptations of Robert (JK Rowling) Galbraith's Cormoran Strike detective series. It's rather good.

The Rockford Files. Great theme tune. Great cast with the sublime James Garner in the lead. Some of the most tricksy storylines in 1970s tv crime. West coast America on a UK midland tv screen. Fantastic stuff.

Love Quatermass and the Pit. Do you watch the 1960s TV version with Andre Morrell as the professor? Love all the extra detail and the creepy details of Hobbs Lane. He is one of the greatest characters in Science Fiction.

Unfortunately the TV episodes of Quatermass just aren't available on this side of the pond. I've only found one episode of The Quatermass Conclusion.

Quatermass and the Pit is so VERY Doctor who and UNIT. Or maybe it's the other way around.

The scariest bit for me in that film is when the policeman goes into the deserted houses in Hobb's lane.
I first saw this film on TV very late one night in the days when the National Anthem used to play and the little white dot used to be the last thing you saw...well the continuity announcer said something along the lines of..."Well, I hope you enjoyed that..I have to go home now, in the dark, by myself...."

Fortunately, the TV episodes of Quatermass are available on this side of the North Sea. While The Quatermass Experiment is incomplete and the picture quality of Quatermass II is eye-strainingly bad, I loved Quatermass and the Pit! Funnily enough, I never saw the film versions. (As far as I now, Gareth is in the Pit?)

Completely off-topic but...

Way back in the 80s when I lived in Paderborn, we could receive BFBS (British Forces Broadcasting Service). However, we didn’t have access to a programme guide. Sometimes, the local newspaper published the current listings. One day at a party, a friend asked if anyone knew something abouth that late-night movie on BFBS. ‘They only gave the title and the starting time but there was no description and they didn’t even say when it will end.’
Another friend fetched the newspaper and looked it up. ‘The last item is 11pm, "Closedown"’ he said.
‘Yes, that’s what I meant’, said the other guy. ‘Does anyone know what that means?’
It was my sad duty to tell him.

the continuity announcer said something along the lines of..."Well, I hope you enjoyed that..I have to go home now, in the dark, by myself...."

Way back in the 90s, a friend of mine had a job at an archaeological site at Dalheim Nunnery, which inspired me to write a novel about that site. Among others, the plot involved three dead nuns from the Middle Ages haunting the place. In one scene, the site manager came back from a conference in Kassel. It was a dark and stormy night and he wanted to take a look at the digging to see if the team had secured it properly. On entering the premises, he suddenly saw the nuns appearing in the stroboscopic flashes of the thunderstorm...

The same year, the former Mrs. Hugbot and I came back from a social function in Kassel. It was a dark and stormy night and we thought it would be fun to have a look at Dalheim. We ventured out onto the premises but as soon as we had passed the gate, we suddenly didn’t feel that comfortable any more. After a few yards, we stopped, looked at each other and got the hell out of there. There was of course nothing there but nonetheless we were both scared witless. Maybe I should write horror stories...

Huggy, it would appear by your own account that if you did write a horror story you would scare yourself silly. Try something close to horror and work you way up to the full fright. What about a re working of Headhunter?....

That is so sad. Andre Morrel is a brilliant Quatermass and the 6 episodes ( I think) do full justice to the story and the spookiness.
I never thought, until I read an article about Jon Pertwee's Dr being based on Quatermass, to draw any parallels. Fool! Seems so obvious now. I just thought it was a touch of the flavours of the month with the style. That time for me is a golden age in UK SF because it IS so linked thematically. Drs, Prof Q, Doomwatch etc.

Today's episode of Sir Francis Drake on Talking Pictures. I think the plot would have been familiar to those of us who were around in the very early 1980's when Mr D turned up on the Adventure Game resplendent in a beard for his role in Drake's Venture. Yes, Sir Francis Drake this week was called the Doughty Plot and in just about 25 mins they covered the same ground as Drake's Venture upto and when Mr D was found guilty.
Today I have bitten the bullet and ordered the complete series of Sir Frances Drake as Talking Pictures appear to be going back to the episode 1.
The fact that Mr Terence Morgan struts around in leather and thigh high boots has got nothing, whatsoever, to do with it.

Just finishing another rewatch of Callan. Fabulous! Love love love Edward Woodward, William 'kommisar' Squire, Anthony Valentine, Patrick Mower et al. Moving onto the planned rewatch of The Avengers Series 4 & 5, tinged with sadness that both the leads are no longer with us...

"The Greatest Show on Earth" (1952) The story of Ringling Brothers-Barnum and Bailey's Circus starring Charlton Heston, Cornell Wild and Betty Hutton. A Cecil B. DeMille spectacular. LOL
