Re: Churchill - Darkest Hour

Britain was worth fighting (and dying) for then.

But as for today's society...I wouldn't recommend anyone take up arms for zero-hours contracts, celebrity worship and gender neutral bogs.

Re: DW article in The Telegraph

A series of, say, four episodes (two hours apiece). TDRO, SC or TTDAD. Full attention to period detail. Done properly it'd grip the nation, not just us aficionados.

A druid critiques DW

I found this on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BP39zN1N7iM Interesting to hear a pagan/occultist's take on DW's Black Magic novels. The speaker (Thomas Sheridan), contrary to appearances, is not an unfortunate victim of Ireland's worsening housing crisis, but rather a writer, speaker and n...

Re: The Devil Rides Out - The Masterpiece

There's a supernatural-themed episode in the 4th series of Bergerac (What Dreams May Come), where Charles Gray plays the part of an occult thriller writer.

Re: DW article in The Telegraph

Thanks for that spice. As is often the way, I enjoyed reading the btl comments more than the actual article. One in particular struck me: I see no reason why his novels would not make a terrific TV series. I thought that myself the other day. I'm currently rereading TDRO and I've been imagining what...

Re: I'm new

I enjoyed...his historical pieces least Ha! Couldn't agree with you more. Wheatley reminds me of Kipling. Both are currently unfashionable and both held objectionable political views Anti-collectivism, a love of country, a belief in Judeo-Christian civilisation? Personally, I find little in DW's vi...

Morning D. I'm still in bed, hungover. Very far from steely-eyed duellist mode.

My dear Charles, I feel I must decline any invitation to participate in your proposed corinthian exhibition. As D could declare, with a surety at least the equal of R Brook's:
'I have little to fear. He must be at least fifteen years older than myself, and he is anything but an agile man.'

Careful there D. I may be a delicate-looking man, with slender, fragile hands and greying hair, but I have no trace of weakness... I'll stand by my words re the British film industry. The Wicker Man gets a possible pass, but all the rest...a load of old toot. I am, however on the same page with you ...

Other than the Amicus portmanteaus, I think most 70s British horror films are rubbish.

I'm afraid I share the widespread apathy to which you allude Darren. I saw the film 30 years ago and still remember the struggle it took to get to the end. However, in his (her?) Amazon review, 'big sam' does conclude with one very laudable point: It falls far short of the dennis wheatley novel on w...
