The Mercury Annual



“I suppose it is significant that today, this very day that I am reading this book – the day of BBC News reporting several long-lost episodes of DR WHO from the 1960s having been discovered in Nigeria, or is it Ethiopia? – I learn of finding Razalia again, the unfinished planet, not in the area where it actually does exist for real in space […] but discovered by the chance discovery within the text discovered within Keith’s loft as he sorts comics and remembers discussing with George over the years the conundrum of exactly where they had lost Razalia, and, in turn, directly as a result of that, now, today, discovered by me within the very text of the sustained prose discovered within the book about Keith and George that I am myself reading.”

Doctor Who – Nemonymous Night

Was it my imagination – but did the episode of Doctor Who last night open with cars etc floating in the sky … a bit like the cover of NN?

Doctor Who’s new story this weekend on BBC: Night Terrors by Mark Gatiss. Definitely Ligottian.  And George’s Dad was the spitting image of the new editor of the Pan Book of Horror Stories….
Throwing all childhood terrors into the mix plus the kitchen sink — and the high-rise block lift. (The CGI effect sinking into the carpet was a bit unconvincing.)
I think it was meant to be a culmination of night-terror cliches (cliches to us Horror Genreators) – but the ‘dolls’ / ‘dummies’ etc. were effectively Ligottian. And I suspect there were a lot of scared children going to bed last night…
