And the build-up continues...

Visit BBC FOUR's page on The Haunted Airman where you will find a brief synopsis and links to 3 video shorts. Also a provisional showing date: Tuesday, 31 October 2006.

I really must re-read the book to find the relevant extracts......

Frank , good to hear from you again and thrilled you're finding interest in DW's other titles. Definitely looking forward to your review. However, I am starting to get a bit worried about you... ... :?. They do say a dog owner begins to resemble his/her pet and I'm sure the same must apply to a wri...

Contacted Colin and regretably he has lost his web space. I have now offered to host his pages within my web space, so hopefully he will be back on-line soon.

In the meantime, if anyone wants to buy his CD, please contact me via a Private Message.

Welcome K R Cope and thanks for pointing this out. I'm attempting to contact Colin McCourt to see what the problem is and will let you know as soon as I do.

Thanks for this nick. Now in the good old days, DW would have been asked to comment on this. Who have they got to turn to now?

Missed that – well spotted! Coupled with Humphreys' lack of knowledge in 'Mastermind', definitely some education needed in the BBC.

Just managed to catch Monday night's 'Mastermind', where there was a contestant, Katharine Drury from Blackpool, whose specialist subject was The 'Roger Brook' Novels of Dennis Wheatley ! A magical moment hearing questions based on our hero. I was very impressed with Katharine (why isn't she a membe...

Hello Steve and welcome to you also.

An intriguing name — due to your remarks re the good life, do I assume a predilection for Captain Morgan and Ginger?

Stevie P , thanks very much for this. Your reviews get better each time and the information snippets are invaluable. Be careful, though, we might start preferring your reviews to the real thing!
