Here’s the trailer for The Walking Dead: World Beyond, the new TV series set in everyone’s favourite zombie universe – in this one, the kids decide to go off on a quest to see the broken world before it gets fixed.

War Of The Worlds (an appraisal of the second episode of the BBC’s new 2019 series).

Please bear in mind that I’m writing down my thoughts and reactions as I watch this episode. It’s very odd seeing the food being rationed out in the second episode, because something I share with HG Wells is we’re both Type One diabetics. At least he fully turned in his early 60s, because he would […]

Here’s the first trailer for the next season of Doctor Who (season 12), and it looks like it’s going back to the tried and tested formula of science fiction and classic monsters … well, at least, Cybermen, Judoon and the Racnoss. Who’da thunk it!

Avenue 5: new HBO scifi TV series (Love Boat in space?) (trailer).

Avenue 5: new HBO scifi TV series (Love Boat in space?) (trailer).

The Thick Of It creator Armando Iannucci has rather oddly created a new scifi comedy series called Avenue 5, which comes across a little like the Love Boat in space. I suspect, knowing Armando, that this will be more a diatribe on the super-rich wanting to abandon Earth’s poor to its woes and bugger off […]

Is Earth’s Van Allen belt an alien force shield?

Apparently, some theorists posit that Earth’s Van Allen radiation belt might be an advanced extraterrestrial technology designed to protect us from hostile alien weapons as well as all that harsh ‘space weather’. Well, that doesn’t seem very likely now, does it? One from the 10th series of the History Channel’s Ancient Alien series.

War Of The Worlds: an appraisal of the first episode of BBC1’s new 2019 series (TV review).

You might have thought it strange that after all these years with the BBC doing historical dramas, that it took until now for them to tackle HG Wells’ 1897 book ‘War Of The Worlds’ as it was originally set, in Victorian (well, Edwardian – close enough) times, as a 3 episode series. Oddly, unlike other […]
