We check out author / Dream weaver Garth Marenghi's Darkplace and as looking at it from a horror perspective alone would be very odd we drafted in one track lover, editor of comedy website Comedy To Watch and all round Rick Dagless super guy, Mr Alex Finch to help with our comedy (we need it!!!)
As usual you can contact us via:
Alex Finch can be found at the Comedy To Watch website:
and on twitter: @comedytowatch
Do check the site out. We can all do with finding stuff to make us laugh at the moment.

Welcome to our very exciting, special episode.
We interview Nick Frost and Samson Kayo about their new Amazon Prime Video show, Truth Seekers, which launches on October 30th, 2020.
It is really rather excellent and fans of British horror and weirdness will enjoy it, we think.

We're going smuggling in Kent this episode disguised as Vicars, skeletal horsemen and scarecrows. It's all fantastic cosplaying fun with Captain Clegg.
Mind you don't get your ear cut off!

We visit a house on a hill thats haunted. No not that one. Or that one. Its the Legend of Hell House.
Returning to the classic British horror era for the first time in our current run was eye-opening. It's just a shame Chris's decaf coffee wasn't. Hopefully he'll remember to load up on the strong stuff before the next episode...

In this special we travel to the crazy and disjointed world of Krull.
Chris and Paul have for many years wanted to discuss fantasy films, a genre they both love. Lockdown has given them the opportunity and for one episode only (unless its really successful) they are becoming A Very British Fantasy.
So get your Glaives ready, gather as many young actors before they get famous and someone with one eye and try to work out whats going on.
(By the way I realise that Bernard Bresslaw has also appeared in Doctor Who, before you all write in)
Let us know what you think of this experiement by contacting us at:
And please leave us a nice review. Thanks

We delve into the world of late eighties children's horror, Moondial.
Is it a ghost story or a time travel story? Or both? We're not sure.
Join us, creepy masked kids, Jacqueline Pearce and children from 3 different time lines and we get very dizzy spinning on the Moondial.
(Paul's still experimenting with positioning his new mic so is a bit echoey here).
Tony Sands excellent short film Echoes of the Passed can be found on youtube here:
