More Stewart Lee Downstreaming Opportunities

Thank you to everyone who got in touch to point out that I have neglected a number of downstreaming options for Stewart Lee's Comedy Vehicle and those who, adorably, thought that I genuinely believed downstreaming was a thing.

In addition to Netflix, it's also on the Amazon, the iTunes and on YouTube as well, but not the normal YouTube, the YouTube you have to pay for.


Either way, the DVD will be cheaper.

Stewart Lee's Comedy Vehicular Access

Every few months someone will recognise me from Stewart Lee's Comedy Vehicle. It sounds astonishing after such a fleeting appearance. Initially, it meant that a run of repeats had begun on a succession of channels, slowly moving further away from BBC2 with the channel numbers going up and up. Channels I have never heard of.

More recently though, it's not because it's being broadcast. Instead because they are watching it online. Downloading it. Streaming it. Downstreaming it.

I wasn't entirely sure where, so I asked the latest person to mention it where they had seen it. Turns out it's on the Netflix.

Time Shadows Anniversary Edition

Time Shadows, the Doctor Who Charity Short Story Anthology that I contributed a story to, has been re-released in a new format.

The 'Anniversary Edition' features almost all the short stories from the original edition features and now complementing them are twelve fantastic illustrations by Simon A. Brett, Paul Cowan, Carolyn Edwards, Jon Wesley Huff and Michael Leis.

In addition to the illustrations there are a series of interviews with the authors. It was strange to have to consider the story all over again after the fact.

The Time Shadows 'Anniversary Edition' once again benefits Limbforge, a charity that creates and provides prosthetic limbs for some of the world's most vulnerable people.

Time Shadows 'Anniversary Edition' is available here.

Outside In: Makes It So Makes It Here

My own copy of Outside In: Makes It So has arrived and I'm really looking forward to reading everybody else's contributions.


I'm the one on the left. Naturally, the first thing I did was take a glance at my own effort.


And then the other, on which Laura Gillespie did the heavy lifting.


You can get your very own copy here.

Sokath, His Eyes Uncovered

I mentioned previously that in addition to the piece that I wrote about The Price there was another...

It's called When The Walls Fell and its all about Darmok, that episode of The Next Generation in which Picard is stranded on an alien planet by a Tamarian, an alien that speaks entirely in metaphor, and they are forced by adversity to learn to communicate with each other.


The lion share of it is a great point of view piece written by Laura Gillespie, while I contributed the bits written in the Tamarian idiom.

Outside In: Makes It So is available here.
