Events- Liverpool MCM COMIC CON 2017- SUPERCLARK 3- Coming Soon!

DSCF0126So after two dozen Comic book Conventions/meetups and photoshoots last year, I’m off to the third event of 2017- MCM Comic Con-Liverpool, for BOTH days, not just one like last year.

Ellesmere Port Comic Con was great, I’m still working on photos, but getting EPCC and the Liverpool Cosplay Meet in January videos edited and uploaded was epic in itself. I made three versions of LCM with different music. The version uploaded featured Lindsey Stirling and Lzzy Hale from Halestorm and ‘Shatter me’. If that didn’t work, as backup I had Nami Kichi’s Cover versions of Brave Shine from Fate Stay/Night and Ignite from Sword Art Online 2.

For EPCC it was a general vid of the event and 360 shoot, then a video of the Cosplay Contest.

It was a comment off Ironman at EP that made me think I need to make another attempt at Superman/Clark Kent, so I have been planning a bit in advance, which makes a change from making things up as I go along like I normally do!

Anyway, that is the plan- Saturday Clark Kent, roving Reporter for the Daily Planet will be around, and then on Sunday I’ll need to find a Jimmy Olsen to film me doing my Super-thing!

Should be FUN!

Thanks also to Thomas Hulks as Professor Zoom/Reverse Flash!

Dr Rrr Series 2- Adventures in the Xmasverse

It’s chilly in the Xmasverse for Episode 2 of Series 2!!

Mr. Tiglet's Blog


Just when you thought Christmas was over and done with, there’s a double-helping of Dr. Rrr in The Xmasverse, just like that Christmas Pudding you have to have because it smells so good!

It’s another zany adventure as the Quest for the Power Core begins!

Time Travelling has never been so much FUN!!!

Welcome to Anything can happen 2017!

Well, that’s what I’m hoping for anyway. A Fresh Start, a New Beginning, the slate wiped clean.keep-calm-because-anything-can-happen-1

To start with- I went to the shop and bought some wellies. I think my subconscious might be trying to tell me something- that was an impulse buy. Maybe my little jaunt round Talacre taught me to be more prepared than I already usually am for whatever eventualities may occur. It looks like it’ll be an epic five-part video anyway, plus I haven’t updated the five year anniversary like I thought I would.

Another thing I am planning in advance is Dr. Rrr! Series 2. In amongst the tidying and sorting I have not watched much this Christmas. (Really? How about Deep Space 9 series 7, or Brave or Thunderbolt Fantasy, or Doctor Who- The Return of Doctor Mysterio/Hell Bent/Spearhead from space, or Yuri on Ice finale (yes, really!) or even last episode of series 6 of Game of Thrones, what a revelation at the end!)

Okay, I might have watched a few things, but nothing really Christmassy, unless you count Nativity 3 in school or Cinderella in New Brighton, but that was before Term ended. Rogue One doesn’t count as an Xmas film, but saw it twice, the second time enjoyed it a bit more, but definitely more darker than others, about same as ep 3 I expect, but the prequels don’t really count anyway, in my opinion.

So there we go, anything can happen now I’ve got some wellies. It’s like when Ford Prefect tells Arthur Dent in Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy that the only thing he needs to survive is a towel, so I guess that’s next on my shopping list.

For now though, I’m eating my first pizza of 2017 and watching the New Sherlock- now there’s an epic combo if ever there was one.

Happy 2017- Get ready and keep your wellies handy, ‘cos anything can Happen!!

1)The Original Opening Crawl intro-



Star wars 1977 original opening crawl text.

So, here it is, 39 years later- the film based on that background text that introduced the very first Star Wars movie, later renamed A New Hope and the Fourth Episode of a projected nine. It’s got a heap of expectations on it though.

2) Hints in other media-

There was a radio play set beforehand and some of the novels had their own interpretation. The Han Solo Trilogy by AC Crispin told of a raid on Toprawa by Bria Tharen and Red Hand Squad. Battlefront 2 on the PS2 had a breakout on the Death Star and plans transmitted to Polis Massa and then the Tantive 4. So this would be the fourth version, since Disney took over and everything written beforehand has been shunted into a parallel universe, giving them a blank slate. (Although Grand Admiral Thrawn is turning up in Rebels series 3, which means they haven’t jettisoned everything like a load of Spice from the spice mines of Kessel then)

3) “That’s no moon, it’s a space station”

Obi Wans ominous recognition of the sheer, err enormity of the problem facing them is played well. The look of horror on his face as the Millennium Falcon approaches the Death Star is priceless- Immense, powerful, the ultimate power in the universe! About time it was revisited, shiny and new!

4) Obi Wan’s Narration over The First Trailer-

“For a thousand Generations the Jedi were the Guardians of peace and justice in the Old Republic. Before the Dark Times, before The Empire.”

As a Tie Fighter soars over a jungle, the outline of the Death Star is seen for the first time- an iconic image and one that sent a shiver up my spine! The trailers since then have built upon that, as well as giving more tantalising glimpses into the characters (and ships/vehicles- the AT-AT’s are back!)

5) There’s more to come!

If I was going to be cynical, then I’d say since taking over the franchise, Disney has upped its marketing and merchandising, milking the SW cashcow for all it’s worth.

Well, I won’t. Like I stated earlier, Lucasfilm has created a blank slate between Return of the Jedi and The New Trilogy. Rebels has been pretty good. The Live-action series has yet to materialise, but a number of spin-off/stand alone films has been announced. Boba Fett, Han Solo and even Yoda are getting their own films, but I’d love to see some of the Beings from the Cantina get their own film- Muftak the Talz or a Snaggletooth movie! Yeah, that could work- explore the difference between the tall blue snaggletooth’s and the smaller red ones! Maybe the red support the Empire and the rarer blues the Rebellion maybe?

Come on Lucasfilm, get it done!

What’s the Scariest thing I have ever written?

tainted-love-cover-3I’ve become so numb, I can’t feel you there

Become so tired, so much more aware

By becoming this, all I want to do

Is be more like me and be less like you

Linkin Park- Numb

What IS the Scariest thing I have ever written?

That’s a tough question, something I’d never considered before, as I’m usually conscious of being U or at the most, PG rated. Anyway this year’s Infinite Whoniverses Halloween Special might be IT- the Thing Unmentionable, the Horror of Horrors- 18 or more probably 15 rated.

Just to be clear- I don’t write erotica or have blood and gore flying everywhere. ‘Incineration Day’ in the EPIC Anthology was a black comedy, a dark, tense thriller with a bit of a gruesome twist. But really it’s been mainly child-friendly, family audience, like old Saturday night teatime. Okay, Infestation Day from IW last Halloween was creepy, especially if you’re a tad Arachnophobic, but now, it’s all about to change.

TAINTED LOVE is a Vampire tale, from Gallifreyan Mythology and The Eternal Wars era of Doctor Who lore. I watched Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 2 for inspiration- my favourite episodes from Surprise/Innocence to Becoming. Those are all rated 15. The most graphic Gothic/Horror stories of the Fourth Doctor- Deadly Assassin/Horror of Fang Rock/Pyramids of Mars and Robots of Death are all PG rated, although Ark in Space dvd is U for some mysterious reason. I guess it’s a matter of where you think the line should be drawn. So, I am going a bit beyond what I usually write, two scenes in particular have made me realise it’s a bit more graphic, both Vampire attacks, but blinkin’ Barnacles Fishcake, talk about stretching out of the comfy zone.

The irony is, it started out as a Romantic tale for The Doctor Who Project in 2013. Part of the Season 39 line-up, The Children of Chaos had to include part of the continuing storyline of companions Tom and Val falling in love, getting married and leaving the TARDIS and TDWP Version of The Doctor. I elected to write the scene of their First Kiss, called it ‘The Moment’ and include it in the story. Well, that story was never completed, but I still wanted to use the scene somehow. This is it. A perfect catalyst for a tragic story, the heartache of something so promising gone terribly wrong. The cruel ironies of life and decisions and choices you end up regretting. (I’ve had quite a few of those too!)

So, consider yourself forewarned- Infinite Whoniverses is going to a scary place this Halloween…..

The Finale to Series 3 is finally here- better late than never!

Mr. Tiglet's Blog

IW NEO 1 EOT3This is the Episode of Infinite Whoniverses that I have wanted to do for a long time. Not only a semi-sequel to Trial of a TimeLord from the Sixth Doctor’s second and last Season, but referencing the very first appearance of the ‘alternate’ NeoGallifreyan Doctor in Triumph of the Daleks from last year.

There’s a few revelations here, and one in particular that I will get more into in the opening episode of Series 4, sometime in November, maybe December. It also has a great cover- accidentally when I tried doing a selfie with Gallifrey in the background- the reflection was actually much, much better, so went with it!


I have written 14 stories in Series 3- WOW! That takes me up to 28 overall, with 35 episodes in total. Good golly miss molly!! That’s a lot for one person- as well as covers and stuff. Getting…

Flash Gordon Film- 35th Anniversary

I am usually pretty reliable remembering dates and anniversaries, so missing the 30th anniversary of Transformers last year was shocking! I so should have seen it coming, especially with the inclusion of the Dinobots in the last film. But there you go.


So this year is the 35th anniversary of the Film version of Flash Gordon. Sam J. Jones has been doing a tour promoting it and the reunion, called ‘A Life After Flash’ but I thought I would watch the movie again and see how well it stands up, which is pretty good actually.

It’s a creepy start, with Ming and Klytus doing a voiceover as they select Earth to attack using Hot Hail, Earthquakes and so on, but this leads into the opening theme as the credits roll, along with sections of the story from the Original comic strip by Alex Raymond. Queen’s soundtrack is arguably the best thing about it, and the music carries you along for the ride, especially as Flash and Dale are introduced on the Plane, which crashes conveniently into Zarkov’s greenhouse, allowing him to kidnap them on his rocket ship to Mongo.

It’s all a breathless rush from one setpiece to the next, some nice musical numbers accompanying the action, even though logical progression and sense seem to take a dive faster than a jump to Arboria from Vultan’s city!

Condensing an entire serial into just an hour and a half doesn’t leave much time for Character development, for someone who is not familiar with the mythos, or read the comic book or seen the original Flash Gordon Space Soldiers serial with Larry ‘Buster’ Crabbe (or even the Animated series!) it could be confusing. I enjoyed it, though. The outlandish colours, the costumes, the sheer pageantry and pace, as well as the splendidly awesomeness of the soundtrack (performed by Queen, did I mention that?) all fuse together into an almighty rip-roaring adventure tale.

The less said about SyFy’s reboot the better, but as this film stands, it certainly is a Classic.




Flash- by Queen
