Quiz of Rassilon stuff

The Quiz of Rassilon is a lively Doctor Who themed pub quiz that takes place every second Sunday of the month at the Sebright Arms in Shoreditch, London (which is possibly near a certain school but I haven't checked this on Google maps yet). I was asked to design a logo for them. I based it on an nineties TV quiz show theme - the sort that adorned such classic shows as Telly Addicts, Bob's Full House and The Paul Daniels Magic Show - CGI satin-style with lots of bits and  pieces flying around. I also took the liberty of creating the "official" board game that would've come with the show. I hope you like it.

Details about the Quiz of Rassilon and when their next event is can be found either via their Twitter feed @QuizOfRassilon or on their Facebook page here.

The Cluedo Master Plan...

You know me. I rarely do requests. Not because I'm an arrogant content creator and social media influencer but simply because the joke is gone once it's been posted/tweeted. Most of the fun of my tweets and blog posts rely on the element of surprise when seeing the finished article. You don't get that when someone posts a reply to you on a public forum explaining their idea for a joke. Everyone's seen the text already... That's my angle on it. 

But I had a tweet pop up in my timeline the other day that suggested a version of Cluedo peopled by the alien delegates from that classic Doctor Who mega-serial 'The Daleks' Master Plan'. It's one of those silly ideas that when you see it, you think someone must have done it already at some point... but no. It's actually quite a fun concept. And I've @2hrTV to thank for suggesting it.



Here's what I came up with...

The Three Lives of Countdown and TV Action...

This week has seen the publication of a new (one-off?) issue of Doctor Who Adventures - the popular comic for 7-11 year olds based on the popular BBCtv series that adults adore and argue about. 

Older readers of this blog will no doubt recall a time when children's comic cravings were satiated by the likes of Countdown and TV Action with "All Your TV Favourites" and Cannon

Here's a taste of what things would've been like had Countdown and TV Action been published today...

Doctor Who Christmas Special in the NEW Radio Times!

Yes, I've finally had my delivery on the new Radio Times from that strange unltra-universe where my tat actually exists. The portal might cause scorch marks on my lounge carpet but it's worth it. 


Here's the relevant Doctor Who stuffs.


The original post about this totally made up and fake Christmas Special is available by following this link.
