Very true, but I still prefer his choice of title for Evil In A Mask: Enter The Nymphomaniac!

maisonvivante, please, please do tell your partner to continue with his project! As you will have gathered the BBC came nowhere near beating him to the punch.

Actually, my other half is a fellow! Ahh, changing times. . . ;) Please accept my sincerest apologies, particularly to your other half, but then, as I am a long-term DW aficionado, I am allowed my preconceptions? And yes, you may be right re the marketing. I know of a few instances, particuarly in ...

Oh maisonvivante , we have been lobbying the film/TV industry for some time now! The amazing thing is that everyone I speak to in the industry all agree that DW is the ideal material for filming/TV, but regrettably the film-makers no longer have the say. We need a strong champion based in the City (...

I doubt that was DW's design - more likely the restraining hand of his agent/publisher!

Greetings and welcome maisonvivante . We in the UK and our forefathers/mothers, who can never get enough of DW have never understood why DW never made it into the top-sellers on the other side of the pond. Perhaps you have always been a bit more sensitive as to the non-pc elements of his writing? I'...

Welcome macnab both to The Library and the DW community, and thanks for your contribution. Yes, DW was a stickler for his locations and in fact, was the first writer to use real Hotels, restaurants etc.. He was also a tireless traveller, and you could always tell which part of the world he had recen...

Well, it has happened. One man's interpretation of a DW story. My initial reaction is one of horror, and probably a good job too as that is all the horror I am going to experience in this pitiful attempt to ride on the back of one of our literary geniuses. I am so disappointed that an opportunity to...

Once again Stevie P, a brilliant review and one I shall definitely use as comparison with next week's BBC FOUR's offering. Thanks for doing this out of sequence in time for the TV show.

I'll try and come back to you later regarding some of your excellent insights.

Filming locations: The Devil Rides Out

Thanks to Colin McCourt, discovered this little gem: The Worldwide Guide to Movie Locations.

(the Edgwarebury Hotel, a suitable location for a DW convention?)
