Thanks to everyone who came to see me and Steve during the brief revival of the "Dinosaur Planet" live show. The end of the run brings the main album promotional campaign to a close, although we do have one more thing to talk about next week...
If you're getting as excited about the new series of Doctor Who as I am (i.e. A LOT) you can't fail to have noticed that the second episode, "Dinosaurs On A Spaceship" does look quite similar to "Dinosaur Planet". I'm very much looking forward to tomorrow's "Next Time" trailer to see HOW similar, and if all goes to plan I'll be doing a Press Release about it on Monday.
I'm pretty sure they're NOT ripping us off, but do intend to have a bit of fun with it, so although I could not possibly CONDONE anyone starting a TWITTER FURORE, writing to sci-fi news sites or doing bootleg videos or anything like that I would, of course, be powerless to stop it. Stuff like this, for instance:
The final Totally Acoustic End Of Season SPECIAL is now online, featuring previously previously unheard tracks from the second half of this series. It's got performances by Frankie Machine, Chris T-T, Benjamin Shaw, James Agnew, Peter Buckley Hill, Pete Green, Gavin Osborn and ME. It's ACE!
IN OTHER NEWS
I'm now on about the FOURTH version of next year's Fringe Show, and this time I think I've worked out what it needed: a PLOT you can FOLLOW! We're currently booked to PREMIERE it at the Leicester Comedy Festival in February, but look out for some previews towards the end of this year... if I manage to finish it!
And I think that's enough excitement for now - thanks for listening, and see you next time!
