I'm so sorry, Paddy.  What an absolute nightmare.  I think I would have had the same reaction as you.  I've wondered in the past about the baseball bat option; having tracked down a scammer a day or two after he scammed me, and I don't even have the most rudimentary of detective skills - it took the garda a year and a half, and even then they couldn't prosecute him.

Has anyone heard from TJM?   It's very worrying.

Very nice cover - I was sure it was Rufus Dayglo till I looked a bit closer.  In a good way, of course - I love Rufus' stuff.

Me, I've had lots of Walking Dead dreams, but this time I was in the Terminator apocalypse.  I started off in a massive field littered in skulls as far as the eye could see, and was standing nearby the two gigantic decommissioned robotic lorries that had deposited them there (the field being a kind of Skynet rubbish dump for human heads, I suppose).

Me and a group of survivors managed a terrifying journey through wrecked and corpse-strewn seaside towns to our makeshift village, where children were taking advantage of the adults' absence by playing out in the open where they could easily be spotted by the machines.  They were roundly dragged into our secret caves to be punished by a burly army type, who stuck duct tape to them and ripped hair off their skin to cause them pain.  Everyone silently agreed that it was nasty but the right thing to do, as it might save their lives in the future.

Good times.  I blame whiskey, chocolate and war anxiety.

Of course Starmer's Labour isn't perfect, but it would be hard to imagine a worse UK government than the ones headed by Johnson and Truss, barring of course some kind of dictatorial coup.  Starmer may be quite a bit to the right of Corbyn, but as IP said, the current government is has very little whatsoever to offer beyond far-right populism.

I honestly believe that Starmer is at heart a fairly decent person who has at least some intention of helping the people he might lead.  I'm struggling to see any such people in the Johnson / Truss cabinets. 

And, at the risk of labouring (sorry) the point ad nauseum, I know that it's not my government I'm talking about, but over half of my extended family either are English or live in England, and Truss's outlook on the Good Friday Agreement has the potential of creating very, very serious problems this side of the Irish Sea.  As in large-scale killing and maiming problems.

It's just occurred to me that whenever someone on the telly or on a film has a bit of a cough, it's never a cold, is it?  It's an undiagnosed illness that will kill them, as sure as night follows day.  I'm watching House of the Dragons and someone is coughing, see.  I'll be sorry to see them go.

 Fair point - I suppose tory-lite at this stage of the game is anything left of Vlad the Impaler.

Ah please TJM, talk to someone, drop a DM if you're not comfortable putting it out in a public platform.

Absolutely - please be safe, TJM, and as the man says, send a DM if you want.

An absolute pounding (sorry) for the Tories in the polls.  I doubt a British PM has ever had a worse start.  Looks like the next general election will deliver you a leader who actually gives a fuck about you.

Yep, and don't forget that Wulf's a Great Dane.


With a German accent, but we won't worry about that.

Indigo Prime. But only for the first few series, not the modern one.


What he said. Indigo Prime.  Or Void Indigo as it used to be.

I think the Meg worked better than the prog actually. The prog's stories had nothing to do with each other really. The Meg, while it's still an anthology of different stories, held together as a coherent whole storyline.

The whole thing worked much better than the attempt to do something similar in last year's Sci-Fi Special.

I thought the same - really enjoyed the way each story flowed to the next, with Niemand's alt-Dredd strips being the star of the show.  Just horrific and brilliant.  Devlin Waugh's story was a bit slight - he didn't really have a whole lot to do but tell the heroes which way to go, like a random character in a Fighting Fantasy book.  I'm not quite sold on Steve Yeowell's Armitage or Johnny Alpha, but it was a nice little interlude. 

The ending of the whole show was great (though isn't the whole multiverse infected with the zombies, rather than just one planet in one universe?).
