  1. Loved the new podcast, just what I needed on a dark cycle into work this morning. Totally agree with you on the Doctor episode, the special was definitely the better of the two stories but the Christmas one had some lovely moments. Also having the pleasure of sharing Sherlock with my own 14yr daughter this year after I managed to persuade her to try the first two series before Christmas and we are both loving the new series, although some more meat to the cases in the first two episodes wouldn't have gone amiss.

    I have also added "The Name of the Wind" to my kindle list on your recommendation but it will have to wait till after I read "Dream London". Having just finished the Stephen Leather "jack Nightingale" series I need something new to get into.

    Looking forward to the next podcast, Ta very muchly!

Robin of Sherwood.

Here we are again, another auld SFX blog. This time a review of Robin of Sherwood, from about 2010 I think. I also think after reading this I absolutely need to watch this again and soon. Sometimes shitty weather is a treat isn't it, or at the very least permission to curl up with ya knitting and your spicy tea, mmmm spicy tea and watch something delicious. And this is really delicious. For more than one reason.  It is probably on Netflix of Prime by now I would've thought. Did you love this? Did it haunt you? Sometimes unbidden, does this scrumptious face just pop into your head?

Robin of Sherwood: Nothing’s Forgotten…Nothing’s Ever Forgotten
When I was a child in the 80’s the unmissable television programme of the time was Robin of Sherwood. My overwhelming memories of the series were: Michael Praed being the most beautiful human being I had ever seen, the blond replacement being a bit rubbish and the episode with the Hounds of Lucifer being the most terrifying thing I had e…

ERRATA aka Mistakes I make in this ep!  I talk about how much I enjoyed the John Carpenter ep of FutureMan, I totally mean James Cameron. I also talk about the direction you should spin and ply and give entirely the wrong info. You do not spin and ply the same way as your fibre will be Over spun and will break. You are taking twist out not putting more in. I have not slept much recently. I think that is it but ye nah, can't guarantee it!
