In celebration of Guillermo del Toro's new opus The Shape of Water, Mr Jim Moon sets sail on a new new podcast series and submerges the Great Library of Dreams Bathysphere into the deeps to discover all manner of aquatic horrors. In this first episode, we explore the Gill-man's ancestry in mythology, legend and folklore, encountering kappas, nixes, nymphs, tritons and of course various mermaids and merfolk.
In this bonus mini-episode, we take a look at the new six part dark drama series Requiem. In a spoiler-free review, Mr Jim Moon examines what this new co-production from the BBC and Netflix has to offer!
Mr Jim Moon once again invites you to take a seat by the fireside to hear another of the marvellous Stoneground Ghost Tales by EG Swain. And as it happens, this particular eerie story has a pleasing fusion of humour and romance, just in time for Valentine's Day...
In this episode Mr Jim Moon sets off once more into the weird and wonderful badlands of 1970s British children's TV. Following on from our previous episodes looking at SF and horror serials produced by HTV , this week we look at King of the Castle, a seven part series written by Bob Baker and Dave Martin, the chaps who created K9 for Doctor Who and previously wrote the high bizarre serial Sky for HTV. Would King of the Castle see them return to more family-friendly fare or did they top Sky and serve up a nightmarish fantasy tale that has been dubbed "Kafka for kids"? Clue: it might be the second one!
