30 Days Of Telly #25

Day twenty-five, a show that you plan on watching (old or new). I was struggling a bit with this, until somebody pointed out to me earlier that Network DVD are currently having a sale, so I bought a serial that I've been thinking about getting for some time. It's called The Tyrant King, and it's a children's adventure serial from 1968, with a very contemporary soundtrack and a vaguely psychedelic look to it. It's been recommended to me a few times here and there, and Network were kind enough to lower the price to £5 today. So it's now on its way, and I will watch it at some point in the not too distant future. Probably, if I remember. It has a very funky cover, look:

Also it stars Murray Melvin, who Torchwood fans will remember as Bilis Manger, the mysterious, demon-summoning caretaker from the two episodes at the end of season one. Which is good. I liked Bilis, and have always thought it a shame that he never came back. Anyway, that's a show that I plan on watching. It's old rather than new (big surprise), but that new SHIELD series starts in the autumn, and I'll be giving that a go. So there's that. I have no idea when it will be, but probably October? Or September. Or something with a "ber" in it, anyway.

(I looked it up. Apparently it's September 24th).

I've seen the Tyrant King mentioned in the Ace of Wands booklet and promoted on the Cinedelica site, which sadly seems to be dead now. Does it have a sudden ending? Preston likes those.

How would I know?! :D I'll tell you in a little while, when it's arrived and I've watched it.

No first class stamps for a fiver? Watch out for ex-cons too:)

Definitely no first class stamps! Actually it was free post, so I'm not complaining. Got the dispatch e-mail this morning, so it'll probably turn up in a day or three. And I will definitely beware of ex-cons. :)
