Wiffle Lever To Full!

Daleks, Death Stars and Dreamy Sci-Fi Nostalgia…

Move Over, Rover…

Well, I spent nine hours driving yesterday and slight less time in Portmeirion, but it was worth it… thanks to everyone from The Unmutual for putting up with my ramblings at the splendid PM2008 Prisoner convention yesterday. Amidst the dreaming spires and rustling greenery of The Village itself, I ate a packet of cheese and onion crisps, got sand all over my trainers, and chuntered on in front of Robert Rietti, whose brilliant voiceover work is all over the original Prisoner TV series. Amazingly, he came up to me afterwards and said how much he’d enjoyed listening to me!

Anyway, here are the obligatory pics, with thanks to expert photographer Adam who gamefully took over camera duties when my battery ran out in the Hercules Hall…

Prisoner Wifflage

More Prisoner Wifflage

The agonised expression on my face in this second pic is the result of Dave, the onstage interviewer, kindly reading aloud the bits I’d written about other Unmutual members while they were all present in the room. It’s the literary equivalent of the Chinese Water Torture.

I had a great time though, even if I did get home at 2am covered in bits of Monster Munch and ripped to the gills on Red Bull. Thanks to Rick, Howard, Dave, Rob and everbody else I met yesterday for being so nice to me! And if you’d like to find out more about this sterling bunch, visit http://www.theunmutual.co.uk/

Oh god, expert photographer? Don’t believe the hype!

Nice to see you anyway, glad I was of some use!
