From as far back as I can remember, I had a passion for drama and the creative arts, concocting all forms, including comical skits, music videos, mockumentaries etc, captured with my trusty camcorder.
These interests developed further through Drama and Theatre, specialising in sound design and video editing. These experiences provided me with the skills to work in post-production and in turn the television/media industry. Always looking at new ways to provide content in an engaging and informative way, I would go on to produce digital media and interactive content for a pay-subscription company.
All this led me to deepen my love for horror with a nod to the Hammer Horror genre, exploring their place in time and the impact that they had on my childhood with a collection of podcasts, starting with the Mummy franchise.

    Q Station visit part 2: Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires

    Our final instalment of the Dracula franchise sees Hammer team up with the Shaw Brothers with a blend of kung fu and horror. Van Helsing returns played once more by the amiable Peter Cushing and despite Dracula returning to the scene, Christopher Lee this time does not don the cape. Instead the role is taken up by John Forbes Robertson. Does he measure up and what are the views of the podcasters? Join us as we venture further through the Q Station.

    Q Station visit part 1: Satanic Rites of Dracula

    Q Station visit part 1: Satanic Rites of Dracula

    For our final podcast installment on the Hammer Horror Dracula franchise, we thought that we'd give you, the listeners, a special treat and thanks to the management at Q Station in Manly, we were able to bring you the podcast, recorded live from grounds.
    So we have set up this page slightly differently to previous posts. In the first part we talk about The Satanic Rites of Dracula .

    Additionally, we have also recorded our thoughts and reactions as we navigated our way through the Quarantine Station complex and its various haunted spots, ably guided by our Q Station host, Jake. Needless to say, we got a lot more than we bargained for as we experienced an extremely active night.

Mediocre

Perhaps a bit more research could improve this podcast. Imagine not knowing Peter Cushing had played Sherlock Holmes in “The Hound of the Baskervilles”? A Hammer Film!. When the listener knows more than the presenters it’s hardly worth it.
